Make-up Play Time | Ft. Tarte, Benefit, Marc Jacobs, and more..


I was getting ready today, and seriously could not for the life of me, decide what I wanted to do to my face. To remedy this situation, I just grabbed a few things that I never use, and slathered them on m face, hoping to create a cohesive look.



  • Marc Jacobs Coconut Primer: I have a review coming up on this product, that the whole world has already reviewed. Keep an eye out!
  • L’oreal Infallable Matte Foundation: I am almost done with this foundation. I love it, I really wish L’oreal was a CF brand, but sadly it is not. Anyone know a CF dupe for this foundation?
  • NYX Dark Circle Correcting Concealer: This concealer is high coverage. I actually have been using it as just a regular concealer, under my foundation. Works well for everything! I will probably repurchase it once I finish this one.
  • W3ll People Realist Setting Powder: Not going to say much about this because I have an up coming post on it. I use it to set my under-eyes and T-zone.
  • ELF Aqua Primer Spray: At first I hated this product, pretty sure I did a not so great review on it.Now, I kind of love it. Might actually repurchase it when I run out!

Emphasizing face:

  • Benefit Hoola Bronzer: I never use this bronzer. I just don’t see the hype. But, last year I got the Holiday Cheek set and I am trying my hardest to actually use it.
  • Benefit Rockatour Blush: Really pretty blush. This blush is also in last years little palette/ tin thing. I do not really buy Benefit products anymore, so if I ever hit pan on this blsuh, that will be that.
  • Vintage Illuminator “Rose Gold”: I got this in last months Boxy Charm, and this is the first time I have ever used it. It is pretty so far, but more like a blush topper than a high lighter on me.



  • Colour Pop Brow Pencil “Dope Taupe”: This product goes on forever. I still do not like it though.
  • ELF Brow Kit “light”: I have had this kit for ages and really like it. I will probably end up repurchasing it when this one is done!
  • Physicians Formula Brow Gel (From 4-1n-1 brow duo): I love this gel, probably my favorite, ever.


  • Benefit Stay Don’t Stray Primer: I have been trying to get through a sample of this for ages. I am not the biggest fan of it.
  • Shanann XoXo Palette: The more I use this palette, which is rarely, the more I dislike the metallic shades. I am starting to think I just don’t like metallic shades.
  • I used the orange as my transition shade, The duo chrome red/green  color on the inner and outer thirds of my eye. I used the 3rd shade in the first row in the center of my eye. I connected this and deepened up my outer crease with the matte red  shade. That shade is probably my favorite in the palette. This is also the shade I used under my lower lash line. The lightest shimmery shade was what I used as my inner corner highlight.
  • Jordana Fabuliner: Oldy but a goody. I used to love this liner, and for got I had it! Still love it. It is also really inexpensive and works just as well as higher end felt tip liners.
  • Tarte Tareist Lash Paint Mascara: I like this mascara a lot. I believe I did a little review on it a whole back. It is my 2nd favorite mascara, only under the Pacifica Dream Big.
  • Marc Jacobs liner “black” : This was in the Sephora Birthday gift last year, I can not remember the name, but I like it to do my water and tight line.


  • Milani “Spice” lip liner: I love this lip liner, who doesn’t?Today, I decided to completely fill in my lips with it.
  • Colour Pop Lip Gloss “Weho”: I don’t like glosses, but this one is nice. It doesn’t last that long, but the color is pretty while it does!
