Love to Hate, Hate to Love

I want to apologize in advance for skipping Fridays/Weekends #MOTD and Mondays Fave so today to make it up I’m going to show you a few things. Lets start with my Monday Faves.

As I mentioned I was on a hunt for the Milani 2 in 1 foundation. I have tried many many drug store foundations and have had absolutely BAD luck with all of them. I usually get oily through the day but I also have dry patches. I don’t know whats the deal with that. When I try a new foundation I do some things before giving up on it. I try different moisturizers with it, different primers, and different concealers. By far this foundation has held up. I can already tell it will become a staple in my collection. If I had to compare to another foundation I’d say it reminds me a lot of my ‘holy grail’ the Estee Lauder Double wear foundation. The coverage is AMAZING one layer is good with spot checking but it can easily be built to more of a full coverage. It matched me so well too, which is something I struggle with in other foundations. It applied well with both a foundation brush and the beauty blender. On Saturday I wore it all night and it held up so well. As you can see even after some dancing and sweating there’s minimal oil, there was no patching, and hardly any creasing. Some of the other foundations I tried settled into my fine lines making me looked aged, I don’t know how else to describe it! (Now keep in mind I set all my foundations the same exact way.)IMG_2349

Now I’m going to complain, hence my title. Today I wanted to try something I received in my April Ipsy Glam bag. I was so excited because the shade of the cream shadow by Starlooks is absolutely beautiful. But, ugh, I hate to do this but I hate the consistency. It was so hard to apply and it set so weird on the lid. I tried to redeem the look by going over it with an actual eyeshadow and it didn’t help. Which is such a bummer because the color is absolutely beautiful. IMG_2377

Here you can see how weird it looks. I primed my lids like usual so maybe that was the mistake? Anyone else having trouble with this product? Any suggestions? On the lips I am wearing two new products from this post.
