Makeup MAYhem Day 27 - Old & New Products in Makeup Rotation Week 3

Hello guys! Today I will be sharing with you the makeup I will be wearing this week. Some of the products you may recognize from last weeks makeup rotation, I did that on purpose so I could continue to test the products out more while updating you on my current thoughts on them! Some of these products featured here are old favorites that I am revisiting, but the majority of them are new! I hope you are having a wonderful day and hope you will liked reading this post!


For my primer, I will be using the Benefit Porefessional Primer. I'm still trying to determine how much it softens my imperfections...and whether or not it helps with oil-control. I do like this primer overall, so but I haven't made a final decision on what I think about it (and whether or not its worth grabbing again). For my foundation, I will be mixing Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation in Buff 6(W) and Mac Pro Longwear Concealer in NW25. I'm nearly out of my Lancome foundation, so I wanted to try to finish it out. I have to mix it with the concealer to make it match my skin more (plus, it provides more coverage). The Mac concealer is too dark for me to use by itself (but by the end of summer, I'm sure it'll be the only thing that matches my skintone with the amount I've been out in the sun). It is a fantastic concealer that you guys need to try out if you haven't already! For any other concealing I need, I will be using the CoverGirl and Olay Concealer Balm in Light. First impressions wise, this is a great concealer... it's very creamy, blendable, and doesn't crease much under my undereye area. For blush, I will be using Inglot AMC Face Blush in #58. I recently picked this up this weekend (along with two more eyeshadows from them), and from swatching it at the counter the formula seems amazing. This is hands down, one of the softest blushes I own (if not the softest blush in my collection!). For bronzer, I will be using the Elf Studio Golden Bronzer in Golden. It used to be one of my go-to bronzers (as seen by the fact that I hit pan on it). It's a great bronzer for all over face bronzing, but it has a bit of shimmer so I don't use it for contour. To set my makeup, I will be using Becca Fine Pressed Powder in Wheat. Like I mentioned in one of my videos, I'm not totally convinced that this is good for oil control. Still, I'm going to be testing this out to make sure that my instincts are right.


For my eyes, I don't have a lot of products I am sticking to...mainly because I plan on filming a lot of tutorials this week (so I gotta mix up the eyeshadows)! For my eyebrows, I am finalizing my opinion on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade in Dark Brown (first impression video). Needless to say, I think this may be my favorite brow product ever. For eyeliner, I will be using L'Oreal Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner 24 Hr in Blackest Black and Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Perversion. I suspect that the L'Oreal eyeliner has expired... I'm nearly positive the formula's changed and dried out... but I just wanted to make sure before I throw it out. In it's newest condition however, it is an amazing eyeliner! But of course, all things must come to an end and makeup is definitely one of those things. The Urban Decay Eyeliner in Pervesion has changed my mind on their infamous formula. Previously, I have tried Zero and Whiskey and it failed to impress me...the staying power wasn't great and the eyeliner never set. However, Perversion is so much better than the other colors I've tried...it lasts and when it sets, it stays in place! This week, I will also try to see if my Tarte multiplEYE Lash Primer is dried up or not... I've had it for awhile now, It was great when I first got it, it added so much length to my lashes! But, like I said earlier, makeup doesn't last forever! Lastly, I am giving another chance for the BareMinerals Lash Domination Mascara to impress me. Hopefully when the formula dries a bit more, it will work better for my lashes.


For lips, I will be mixing up my lipsticks but sticking to my newest lip liner, Mac Lip Pencil in Subculture! I adore my lip liner in Vino, so I wanted to try out another lip liner from them! I wanted a pinky nude lip liner, and this was recommended to me by one of the ladies at Mac. Definitely excited to try this out!

  1. Oooo..I totally want to try that lancome foundation, the pro long wear concealer and that elf bronzer looks soo good! I've been trying to wear different bb creams/foundations every time I do my make up so I use up products evenly!

  5. The Lancome Foundation is great! It's lightweight, provides light-medium coverage, and has such a huge variety of shades so you are bound to find the perfect match! If you have a Lancome counter near you, definitely pick up a sample!

  15. DAMN that's a lot pf products for weekly use....or maybe because I've been a hermit and have been staying at home sans makeup for too long now. I love the Olay concealer, but just make sure you check your face in natural light so you don't have pink and yellow tones on your face going on! I want to try the brow pomade but I NEED A BROW BRUSH *-*

  20. LOL. Usually I don't wear makeup that much when I'm stuck at home...but I'm making videos so much nowadays I kinda have too! I may have accidentally have pink and yellow tones going on my face...due to the Mac concealer...its NW (pink toned!) Try the pomade if you can! I actually use the Elf Angled Brush today and it worked pretty well as a brow brush! You'll just need a spoolie to blend it out :D

  26. I have found the Benefit primer really shines for touch ups. If I noticed my concealer or foundation settling into the fine lines around my eyes I just pat a but of POREfessional over top and it totally smooths it over!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm really loving the benefit primer! Definitely try out the primer if you get the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ooooh, I haven't used it for touch ups yet... thanks for the tips! Will definitely try it out!

  30. It's such a fabulous product isn't it? Such a staple in my collection!

  31. I loved doing this whilst I was on a spending ban! I think for beauty bloggers in particular who have accumilated sooo much stuff, it's hard to use even half of it and get your moneys worth!

    Rotating products is awesome ^_^ and I really want to try one of the Urban Decay pencil liners - I've heard so many good things!

  32. Oh yea, us beauty bloggers use up a huge amount of stuff! It's kind of ridiculous sometimes! Rotating products is so useful! I recommend Perversion if you try UD pencil liners, it lasts really well on me (Zero and Whiskey don't last well on me..those I would skip!)
