FOTD: Illamasqua Skin Base

I road tested the Illamasqua Skin Base today… and it passed with flying colors! Now, I decided to go without powder for my first run. Next time I know better. It set beautifully on my oily skin for about 4 hours, but then I got pretty shiny and needed to blot. Still, it wore so well. I really love this foundation.

Lip Service: Haughty Cosmetics Swatches

As promised, here are swatches of the Haughty Cosmetics Lip Glosses. I cannot tell you guys how good these glosses feel! I’ve never used anything like them. They are not greasy, not sticky, and highly pigmented. I don’t know how they formulated these glosses, but the payoff is well worth it.

If you notice, the color and finish of these glosses are very similar to Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine. Polish It Of reminds me of Canotier, Take a Risk reminds me of Monte Carlo,  and Break A Leg reminds me of Sari d’Eau.
They are more weightless than Rouge Coco Shine (if you can imagine that. The Chanel Lippies are pretty weightless), but the finish is mostly pigment, with just a hint of shine.
