Yoga FOTD ;)

Off to yoga in a bit, and thought I'd share the products I usually use for a simple, fresh look~

Face:
I don't wear foundation or concealer, but I always wear sunscreen no matter what I'm doing! I use Etude House Glow Base SPF 36 (from Korea) as it has a bit of luminance to it, but not a lot of shimmer. Just gives me a nice glow which is handy for when I'm up early on a Sunday!

Cheeks:
Maybelline Dream Mousse in Peach Satin. This is my favorite cream blush and it's really easy to blend in for a pop of peach on my cheeks.

Eyes:
My eyes are the first thing on my face to start sweating, so I have to use my MAC Fluidline which is the only thing that stays put when my eyelids get oily. I use Laura Mercier's metallic creme eyeshadow in Titanium which is a pretty peachy champagne color.

Lips:
I usually stick with my CO Bigelo lipbalm and top with Majolica Majorca Honey Lip Gloss to make them shine.

Grab my water, my mat, and my purse and it's out the door I go!

(I also tried doing Heidi braids on myself this morning. It did not go well. It's definitely easier to do them with wet/damp hair though.)

Etude House Lip Stains

Eek, long time no update. And yet I've actually received a lot of new stuff lately which I need to review still, including my GMarket order. However, two of the lipstains I'm reviewing in this entry are from that GMarket order, and the rest will come later.

Etude House is one of my favorite Korean lines, cheap but really good quality. I ordered one of the dual-ended Tint Glosses in my first order, which is very similar to Benefit's Pocket Tint. About 1/5th of the price though, which rocks.





(I promise I'll review the Skinfood lip&cheek tints next, as they are comparable to Bobbi Brown's Pot Rouges and Grapefruit is a dupe for the super-popular Calypso Coral shade.)

Swatches on my arm, remember I'm NW10 which is as pale as it gets!

Leftmost is the stain end of the Tint Gloss, the shade is called "Cherry". The texture is much thicker and a bit trickier to apply evenly. The applicator is a doe-foot.

Middle is the Aqua 10 Proof Tint in Shade 2. (The other shade is a fuschia color). It's not as vibrant as the tint gloss but I love the texture and it applies much more smoothly.

Rightmost is the Fresh Cherry Tint in Pink. This is my favorite of the three, and I was skeptical about trying a pink stain as it just seems weird. But it looks great on, not too bright or too pale/milky. Love it.

Price-wise these cost about $5 each, all purchased from the official Etude House seller on GMarket. I ordered quite a fair bit from the seller and they included a very cute skincare kit which I might do as my next giveaway!

Phew, hope that was a good enough review! I've had a bit of an exciting day so I am off to download obtain legally the new episode of Doctor Who, eat some leftover pizza, and play with Cleo.
