Makeup VI : SPFantastic

So, I bought the UD Naked Smoky and Naked I palettes and am now rocking a lot of eye makeup.  I'm also wearing Loreal Sandstone lipstick nonstop.  I cannot tell you how sparkly and glittery my face is these days.  I am like a combo David Bowie/magic unicorn/birthday cake.  It's kind of amazing.  

Don't screw with me; I am sparkly.

I am finding though, that I'm not totally happy with my base.  I'm using a Dior compact and while I like the finish, I think it may need to be a little lighter?  I dunno.  What do you pale, redheaded, oily skinned peeps use?  (Xray...cough, cough)

I've used Nars tinted moisturizer in the past and it's been pretty good.

So I went a little crazy at Sephora on the weekend and thanks to Mya Stone I came very very close to buying a Clarisonic....However, the brush bristles scared me off - mildew, sanding my face off because I was using it too long, along with the cost of replacements. I recalled seeing videos of the Foreo Luna2, I decided to do some more research and became convinced it's what I wanted. So, it arrived today. It has a USB charger but no wall plug which annoyed me but also makes sense because it's a Swedish appliance and could wind up anywhere so one standard wall plug isn't feasible. It's charging now and I will take it for a spin before bedtime. I bought the one for sensitive skin. The videos for it are all sorts of ridiculous. Review at your leisure. *L*

I also treated myself to this set and they are all lovely with the exception of the Buxom which kind of burned my lips. It had a menthol/minty thing going on that wound up way too tingly.

Aha, the Buxom has a lip plumping property, that I am still recovering from two days later. Ugh.

I haven't seen the Foreo Lunas before.  Those commercials...lol.  I have a Clarisonic which I like.  I don't use it regularly.  More like once every couple of weeks.  I sort of treat it like a facial or mask...something to be done once in a while to clean things up but not use regularly.  I think if I used it everyday my face would get pretty irritated.  Because I use it infrequently there is plenty of time for the brush to thoroughly dry between uses.  And I haven't replaced it yet but might do so at some point in the future.

I can't imagine where or when I'd wear a metallic liquid lipstick. But still, want.

Okay.  I just bought the rose gold in this.  I couldn't resist it.

I texted you a fabulous present, which you never acknowledged. Obviously, Donna Mills videos should come before work, Xray. :P

 I'm going to leave it here for everyone.  This video is my new favorite thing.

"You're probably asking yourself, but Donna, I don't have blue eyes.  What should I do?"

Yes.  I ask myself that every day.

My new favorite lipstick is Berry Haute from Revlon. Holy gods it's the orchid/purple lipstick I've been looking for. Elder Sis you gotta try it.
