When I do a bold lip, I usually stick with just eyeliner and keep everything down to a minimum. Most of the products I used were essentially old favourites that I have previously spoken about on the blog.

However, the few new-to-the-blog products include the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. This powder is great for the summer and I can see why it is one of the most recommended loose powders on the market. MAC Melba is a rediscovery from my old MAC Blush Palette. Melba is a stunning nude that leans peach and I can see it working on many different skin tones. Benefit They’re Real Mascara was a lackluster product for me but something I’m trying to finish a sample of. It works and provides great volume but does NOTHING to hold a curl, even though it is as hard to remove as my other curl-holding waterproof mascaras. All of the work for none of the benefit (no pun intended)? No bueno.

  1. How lovely! I’m glad you included some thoughts about the Benefit mascara. I was just about to ask if you liked it. Right now I’m getting through samples of MUFE Smoky Lash and UD Perversion mascara. I like Smoky Lash just fine, but Perversion is not impressing me at all.

    1. Unfortunately They’re Real did not live up to its hype for me. I’ve heard great things about MUFE Smoky Lash and it is actually on my “To Try” list. Thanks for letting me know about UD Perversion. Isn’t that the good thing about samples? Being able to find out products suck before spending the money on them? Haha. Thanks for stopping by!
