Finally, an FOTD !!! hahaha pardon my lacking of face shot pics, I have been into non-makeup related stuffs lately but I would like to take this opportunity to do a quick review of EG Minerals items I purchased recently.
First of, the foundation. I 'think' I found my shade, it's Lollie..a Cover Me formula that suits my skin with a lot of imperfection to cover, I believe it's from the Yellow family.
"Lollie is a medium tan foundation for women with tanned complexions and distinctive yellow tones. Ideal for women who have worn Med. Tan in other foundation lines but needed more yellow or warmth for an ideal match."
On me it has the perfect amount of yellowness and it does a good job covering a red areas I have pasca breakouts. The closest one would be Jocelyn & Janelle (both from Youthful Glow formula).
I also tried the their Cream Eyeshadow in Winter, to give you an idea of the consistency, this cream feels like a cream base, as creamy as UDPP if you depot them and not as hard as MAC Paint Pots.
What's interesting about it is that once applied and rubbed around, it'll dry to a silky finish eye-shadow texture, the color still came through but perhaps not as opaque as it was before being spread around. Winter is a frosty white so after application it leaves a white sheen on lids.
I once read you can wear this as an eyeshadow alone but I'd prefer this as a base. Ever since NYX JEP creases on me, I really wanted to find a good cream base of my oily lids.
Now to be fair, I did wear this WITHOUT base, no UDPP/L'oreal De-crease/TFSI. And I'm happy to say it doesn't crease on me! It also does make the color pop, and a great staying power too.
I created this EOTD when my I was in neutral color kick, but I did add a jade green shadow to make it a little bit more interesting. I used Kitten eyeshadow from Stila, honestly I think it's way too shimmery for my likings but the pigmentation in gorgeous. I added Maybelline Safari Safari on my outer V and lower lash line and finish with NYX Root Beer (which has a slight green sheen finish) to deepen the crease. I quite like the effect, hope you like it too!
