Makeup Bag Test + DTMtBD Beauty Sightings
I reorganize my makeup bag every couple of months, and I always like to test out the makeup and see what kind of looks I can make. To be honest, I rarely come up with anything new or exciting; I stick with my "clean face bright lips" wheelhouse and hope it always works.
You may notice two new-ish products here: Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm Stain in Unapologetic and Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee in Pink Escape. I'm iffy on the Revlon matte balm--it's nice, but it doesn't last as long as the regular balm stains--but the Josie Maran gelee is beyond beautiful. I've used it many times on myself and I've tested it on my mother. Always looks natural, perfect, and slightly glowy.
This test led me to make two choices: I'm switching out MAC Fling for a darker brow pencil, ie MAC Lingering, because Fling is a bit too blonde; the Revlon lippy is beautiful (and almost a dupe for MAC Impassioned lipstick), but not all that versatile, so I'll be swapping it out for a lipstick that's easier to sheer out or layer on.
But yeah, if you want a nice satin lip pencil at an affordable price, I'd still recommend the Revlon ones. I got mine for $4 (on sale + a coupon), and it was totally worth it.
As a side note, I wanted to add some more beauty sightings! We're heading back to Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead...don't judge me, I love this movie. We're looking at a 1991 flick, so if you're an 80s or 90s aficionado, help me out!
Inside Rose's desk. Wow, that looks like Evian water...but I think it says "moisturizer" under there. Hun. Also, the white tube with the blue cap appears to say "Lash," so it must be some type of mascara. The blue bottle in the back is eye makeup remover.
Rose takes out here tray o' stuff. Obviously we can see a lipstick there, but I also spot a tube of foundation on the left side.
Mascara. Thoughts on what kind?
That's definitely part of a Revlon label on the left. Anybody recognize that blue container--looks like it might be powder?
