Loving Lately №2

Tuesday, July 9, 2013


It's been nice outside lately, and actually not too hot. That's all going to change, of course. There's a tropical storm looming in the Caribbean, and it'll probably make it's way to the east coast of Florida (I'm on the west). Oh well, at least there's lots of grass from all the rain we've been having! Always nice to look at the bright side of things.

I'm normally not a big eyeshadow person, but I was feeling adventurous when my mom gave me an eyeshadow quad in Island Breeze from Avon. I really like the colors, and when I pair it with the eyeliner she also gave me (she purchased a bundle from them at a great price) it all works together to create a simple look. The eyeliner is the Avon Glimmersticks Diamonds eyeliner in Brown Glow. I like to use a brush, and blend it out so its not just a hard line. Swatches of the eyeshadow can be seen here.

I recently started using my cream eyeshadow from Avon again, and this one is in the shade pebble stone. I've mentioned it several times before in past posts, and I can't stress how much I adore this color. It's so simple, but it adds a bit of color to my eyelids. Not too much, but enough to compliment them.

I also started using my Pixi Large Lash mascara, which was sent to me by their lovely PR company for review some time ago. I'm trying to use it up, I don't like hoarding mascaras for sanitary reasons. Ever since I got an eye infection about two years ago I've been super careful with what goes in/around my eyes. I am happy to say that my review, and opinion, of this product hasn't changed.

Lots of rediscoveries this time around. I'm trying to rotate my makeup so that everything is getting used in some way. Is it important for you to get use of your makeup? Do you find yourself rummaging through your makeup, only to rediscover old favorites?
