FOTN: Gold & Shine

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:

Amore Pacific Skin Renewal Foundation (206)
Chantecaille Loose Powder (Shadow)
Chanel Blush in In Love
Chanel Eclosion Quad:
Gold on lids
Guerlain Retractable Eye Pencil in Gold
Guerlain Noir G Mascara
Ilia Lip Care in Arabian Knights

My Sustainable Journey: ILIA Pure Lip Care

My latest order from Spirit Beauty Lounge (I swear, they are just getting all of my $$ LOL) included a lipstick from ILIA. This is my first go at the brand. I wanted to see how the brand performed… as the lipsticks claim to be a gloss, lipstick, and balm in one.

I ended up with the darkest color… Arabian Knights:

The swatch photographed a little ‘thin’ — as the formula is semi-sheer. In natural light, it wears stronger. But with a flash, you can kind of see through it. Observe…

Overall, I like it. It’s like a glossier version of the Kate Spade Supercalifragilipsticks. I think they are more balm and less lipstick, but they wear very nicely nonetheless.

You can find ILIA Pure Lip Care products at Spirit Beauty Lounge.
