FOTD: I'm Olive?

It's been a while since I posted FOTD, and in case you all forget how I look like, here is my recent picture with new stuffs I was trying. I honestly don't remember when this was taken but it's most probably last week when I was testing out new shade foundation from EG Minerals.

Honestly the foundation pictures at EG Minerals are misleading, I spent so much time going back & forth reading the explanation just because the order and shades are off, well, few of them.

I tried many shades ranges from Yellow family in Cover Me & Youthful Glo formula, but just recently I branched out to Olive family because I noticed most of yellow shades I tried look too orange.

I'm happy that I think I've found my shade, it's Aileen (Tan golden olive foundation) from Cover Me formula.
---> Looks very olive here but for some reason it blends nicely into my skin and cover all the redness & marks I have from past acne scarring.

EG Minerals Facial Primer Gel
EG Minerals Aileen (foundation)
EG Minerals High Definition Pro (finishing powder)
SN Poppy (blush)
La Femme Soft Beige (contour)

EG Minerals Taupe (all over lid)
EG Minerals Golden Brown (crease)
EG Minerals Cafe Au Lait (highlight)
NYX Golden (1/3 outer V)
NYX Doll Eye Mascara
Kirkland Black Pencil Liner

NYX Circe
NYX Apricot l/g

Then I changed my lips to a bolder color, and here is a combo of
NYX Tea l/s
Kirkland Berry Wine l/s
Cherry Culture l/g

(Whitney, if you read this, I apologize for a yet another jelly doughnut lips)

I'm not surprised!

Actually, the first time I went browsing on EGM's website, I decided to try out their olive shade range first. And I was right, Lollie is my perfect shade! Aileen also works on me though. So yeah, you're not alone. We're olive ;)

That matches very well, I think. You look lovely! Love the lip gloss and I really want to try out the Doll Eyes mascara, I've heard alot of good things about it.

LOL you apologized to Whit for the "jelly doughnut" lips! HA! It's sexy though.

And I was just informed by a couple other Oahu based Blogger babes (whom I'm not to familiar with though) that I can now find Laneige at Palama Market! LOL! See how much I get into town! I haven't been to Palama in YEARS! LOL!
