The Monday Club

Recommended Posts

I realize that I have two additional categories I could list here (not in the swing of this yet, though I love to come peek at what others tend to use regularly). I have my 'purse stuff' which is usually a few lip products, plus, that I use to quickly touch up during the day, and my 'makeup bag stuff' - separate from my 'counter stuff' only because I might, time to time, have something that is a bit more portable that I'll throw in there rather than doubling what I have on the counter or moving an item between the two every day < a pain!

 

I mention this because I just finished off all that extends in the bullet (all that is left is the part in the base; I'll have to fish for it with a lip brush to use the rest, if I want) of my 'purse' Revlon lip butter in Pink Truffle. It was a handy one for touch-ups - moisturizing and neutral with any look, but using a lip brush in that context is a no-go. So, this week it goes onto the 'counter'. Clinique Different Lipstick in Tenderheart moves from 'makeup bag' to 'purse' but I haven't chosen a makeup bag replacement for it.

 

The rest of my 'counter' list is unchanged (p56). I didn't even finish the Genefique serum because I like the Silk Naturals one better - naughty! Trying again this week. :)

 

The eye shadows I chose to use I really have enjoyed so I'm thinking of keeping this combination for this week:

SN mineral eye shadow - Flash

Alima satin matte eye shadow - Cocoa sample

Alima luminous shimmer eye liner - Koan sample

The combination isn't earth-shattering, but the brown Cocoa with the smoky grey Koan (technically eyeliner) on the shimmery light sand Flash (similar to BE Nude Beach) has grown on me, where my typical is all browns (if I use more than a wash) on a light nude, tied in with a copper/orange if anything.

I think it's wonderful that you have the polish all planned out too! Sometimes I can't decide what to do next and end up wearing something for longer than I would have liked as a result. I'm in that boat right this minute!

- Larenim Foundation

- Embroylisse Sample (will it never end?)

- Maybelline 24 hour color tattoo gold and brown (I have used these to make a base to which I only need to add one shadow to. Thus I can use another shadow, preferably indie, to create a different look so that I don't get bored)

- Model Co Cheek and Lip Stain- it's beautiful but ever since I learned to apply my cream to powder lotus blush I just never use it. 

- Urban Decay Sample- I've made a really good dent, but haven't finished it yet. 

- BH Cosmetics concealer and correcting palette- these are terrible quality but they did open my eyes to the world of concealer and I like the light red corrector. I make them work by putting another concealer over top

- Great Lash Clear mascara

    • SKN Renew Seek professional help for skin problems. The skin is not perfect. It can be dry or fatty; you may develop a rash and acne, among other problems. Treat the problem with a professional skin expert, be it a skin beautician at your local salon or a dermatologist for more severe skin problems. Block the sun. Protecting your skin from the sun is important because the sun emits ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Over time, exposure to UV radiation causes many changes in the skin, such as wrinkles, discoloration, freckles or age spots, benign (non-cancerous) growths such as moles and precancerous or cancerous growths such as melanoma. In fact, most skin cancer is related to sun exposure. https://www.getwhiteface.com

    • When it comes to spots or full blown acne I cant go past This cream by MastoorA Beauty it shrank my pores massively, cleared my skin and has reduced the fine lines around my eyes. Granted the lines was something only i really paid attention to but they were there none the less.  I suffered severe pregnancy acne that was so inflamed and painful. This is what I used and it worked amazing for me.
