Mmm, oh how I fancy the Tarte Amazonian Clay infused Cheek Tint in Perfect Pink :) It not only IS the perfect pink natural looking blush, it also smells OH-SO-WONDERFUL!
Sephora Glitz and Glam Collection
One of the things I purchased during the Sephora's Friend's and Family sale was Sephora's Glitz and Glam Collection and decided to try it for my Face of the Day!

I had lunch today with friends and got a compliment on my skin today so I thought I'd share what I used for my base makeup:
First I used a light layer of Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45 PA+++, mainly on my nose and on my cheeks. I use some kind of pore covering product, whether it is a primer or bb cream, on my nose every single day as the first step. Here's the review I wrote last year.
And of course, I used my all time favorite Laura Geller Balance-n-brighten Baked Color Correcting Foundation SPF 15. After using the Balance-n-Brighten I refuse to use any other powder makeup =p Here's its review.
Can't wait for the long weekend, it can't come soon enough!

At first I was skeptical of the Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Gel. I don't normally use cleansers for oily skin because they tend to dry out my combination skin, but this Vichy one doesn't. It makes my skin feel refreshing, conditioned, soft, comfortable, everything that a cleanser should do :) It smells good too. Perfect for the summer now that my skin is getting oilier. Give it a try!

I was really really excited to try the Murad Murad Acne & Shine Control. It sounds exactly like what I need - it is supposed to hide pores, control oil and shine, help with acne, and prime the face. It comes out as a tinted formula, however the tint does't show up at all which is means this can be used by everyone. The consistency feels like a serum, feels more moisturizing than most anti-acne products.
Here's a before and after:

If you visit my blog often you'd know that I am a HUGE fan of Laura Geller, yes I am a true Geller Girl. Ever since I tried Laura Geller Balance-n-Brighten SPF 15 I stopped using all other foundations/powders and I started trying Laura's other products - the Laura Geller Banish-n-Brighten Concealing Luminizer Fair/Light was one of them.
This is a lightweight concealer that conceals and luminizes at the same time. I consider this "lightweight" because this is light coverage, it won't work on those with super dark circles. I don't normally need heavy under eye coverage so this works well on me. What I really really like is its luminizing properties, it reflects light very well but it's not shimmery at all. It also has a very light scent which is very refreshing. Also, the tip is palladium and feels very cool and soothing on the skin :)
Here are some before and afters:

I got a sample of Boscia Green Tea Blotting Linens from Birchbox and I really like it!! I've always been an avid user of blotting papers, I use them daily - everyday at around 3pm I blot. The Boscia Green Tea Blotting Linens are really high quality, and they really do smell like matcha green tea!
The package reads:
- instantly blot away excess oil and perspiration without disturbing your makeup
- made from finely woven leaf fibers of the exotic Abaca Tree Plant and infused with one of nature's most powerful antioxidants, Green Tea, to help soothe and freshen your skin
- ingredients: 100% natural abaca leaf fiber, green tea
The paper is nice and soft but doesn't rip easily; the size is big, probably twice the size of Clean & Clear Instant Oil-Absorbing Sheets :)
