FacesOfTheWeek #1

I wanted to start weekly posts about some makeup looks I've done in certain weeks. I just started a new quarter on the 26th of September and so I'll be posting less than usually. This way, I'll have at least 1 post each week. I do like keeping my makeup pretty simple on most days, but I thought it'll be fun (or maybe just for me) to document them and to show what products I've been trying out / loving. I'm still seeing what format I like the best, so please don't mind the different formats for now!

Review & Swatches: Revlon Grow Luscious Waterproof Mascara in Blackest Black

Revlon GrowLuscious Waterproof Mascara & Lash Enhancer in Blackest Black claims to improve the length of lashes right from the first use and strengthen the lashes too. It contains 0.38 fl. oz / 11.2 mL of product. The retail price will vary according to the area you are in. Mascaras depend greatly on the person and their lashes, but I still wanted to write this review in case other people had stubborn and straight lashes like mine.

Review: Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil

Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil can be used for the hair, body, and face and is recommended for both dry hair and skin. It contains 5 fl. oz and the retail price varies depending on the place it is bought from. I bought mine for about $6. Dry oils are supposed to moisturize the skin and hair but without the oily residue. I was interested in The Body Shop's Beautifying Oil, but I decided to use some drugstore version before I got The Body Shop's version.

Review & Swatches: bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Rebel

bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Rebel originally contains 0.15 oz of product and retails for $18, but I will be reviewing a sample of it I had gotten from one of my friends. Other than the size, everything else should be the same. Rebel is a sheer pink mauve color with no shimmer. On the Sephora.com, they claim that this lipgloss will achieve "fuller-looking, pillowy lips and lasting color." BareEscentuals.com also states that this lipgloss will give "nonstop glistening shine."

Review & Swatches: EM Cosmetics Waterliner Intense Color Eye Liner in Ro's Gold

EM Cosmetic's Waterliner Intense Color Eye Liner in Ro's Gold contains 0.28 grams / 0.01 ounces of product and retails for $20. The color is a beautiful rose gold with very fine micro-shimmers. EM claims that this eye liner won't budge or smudge and this liner definitely lived up to that claim.

Review & Swatches: EM Cosmetics The Life Palette // Love Life Palette Deluxe Samples (Warm Fuzzies)

I got these deluxe samples in my order and it's from the Love Life Palette. These colors are labeled as part of the "Warm Fuzzies" part of the palette. I was just going to include these swatches and review in either the review of the Lip Gallery Cream Color Classic Lipstick in Cuddle Up Pink or Waterliner Intense Color Eye Liner in Ro's Gold, but there's a current deal this weekend involving deluxe samples like the ones in this post for $10. I believe this deal started on the 6th of September. The second half of this deal is $10 back into another purchase after October 1st. The deal is only for this weekend and so I wanted to post this before the deal was over.

Makeup Look: Vintage Throwback ft. OCC Liptar in Vintage (Pencil Form)

Because it's summer, I've been more low maintenance about my makeup but I wanted to play with some new products I bought. Blogger, Mai, from Portrait of Mai started to make lip pencil versions of the OCC lip tars. I had a lip tar before and we did not get along. With the pencil version, most of the issues I had were gone. I think it also helped that I got a darker color. 

I bought my lip pencil from her through Reddit and Paypal, but she has set up her own online store called The Lipstick Garden. I am not being sponsored or anything like that but I do love that she is making pencil versions and wanted to tell others too. 

In this look, I used my new Missha M Perfect BB Cream that I reviewed recently, ELF Brow Kit, and OCC Lip Tar (Lip Pencil version) in Vintage.
