FOTD: SugarPill Heart Breaker

I decided to use ALL FOUR COLORS in the SugarPill Heart Breaker palette… SMH. I think it came out OOOOKAY. I know I can do better. But in my defense, I wore this all day (in the daylight), so I went lighter for my first go:

FOTD: Orange Stuff

A little matte, a little shimmer… some sheer, some not. I mixed a lot of different textures for this FOTD, but kept the overall theme pretty ‘orange.’

FOTD: Blue, Pink & Purple Stuff

I was in a ‘cool’ mood today… blame the weather. It’s been damp and rainy here, and I really don’t feel like doing anything but laying about. LOL But alas, there is work to be done… so I put on a ‘colorful face.’

I only had a bit of time to get ready, and I wanted to try the new Amore Pacific Foundation. Wow, I really like this stuff. I think it’ll work great on dry skin, as my oily skin needed a bit of blotting after about 4 hours. But overall, it held up beautifully:

Luxury Grade: Amore Pacific Skin Renewal Foundation

I’m a little worried about how much I like this stuff. I  bought it on sale… on a fluke, just to see what happened. I got it online (I know! SMH to me), crossed my fingers, and hoped for the best. I was so worried that the color would be off (yellow base/206), but it turned out to be PERFECT.

The packaging is just ridiculous…  like, it’s completely over the top (in a good way?). It takes a bit of doing to get to the product itself. That made me worried too. I’ve found that sometimes when packaging is just doing the MOST in terms of trying to impress you, it’s because the actual product is bogus.

That’s not the case with this foundation.

Odd little dispenser, right? But I love it because it’s totally sanitary. It dispenses just enough product to cover the entire face.
And the formula… omg the formula!

It’s so smooth, and it is absolutely traceless. I read somewhere that this foundation coverage was sheer… it’s not. It’s a solid medium coverage, but can be built to full coverage. There’s nothing sheer about it at all.
 
Now, if I had a complaint, it would be about the color range. 206 (my shade) is as dark as this foundation goes. But there is a full ‘pink based’ range in the 100’s, so fair skinned beauties can rejoice! The 200 range is yellow-based, so make your selections accordingly.
I’m really loving this foundation… and I’m really worried about that, because this can get to be an expensive habit. You can find the full line of Amore Pacific products at Neiman Marcus.
