FOTD: Sheer Matte

It RAINED like crazy this week, so I wanted to do something matte, but practical for the weather. I didn’t want a lot of color, but I wanted everything to stay matte:

FACE
Guerlain Parure Extreme (Dore 24)
Armani Sheer Blush in #6
EYES
Tarte Eyeshadow in Werewolf (brows/lashline/under waterline)
Bare Minerals Prime Time Eyelid Primer
MAC Eyeshadow in Stencil (lids)
Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil in Zero
YSL Shocking Mascara
LIPS
Kat Von D Lipstick in Prayer

A Little Lip Service from Kat Von D

Sugar Sugar put a bug in my ear to check out Kat Von D on my next trip to Sephora. WOW was I ever missing out on these lipsticks! I had to narrow my purchase down to two lippies, and I chose Adora (metallic red) and Prayer (deep matte rose):

I LOVE both of these lippies! Very highly pigmented… smooth and creamy. I can’t believe I waited so long to try them out…

For the most part I recommend these lipsticks… HOWEVER I did notice that some of the testers smelled REALLY old. So, I’d take a whiff of these puppies before you plunk down the $$ for them and end up with a dusty tube of lipstick. But if the freshness date checks out, I say go for it! I’m really impressed with the quality and pigmentation of these lipsticks.
