The Daily: August 18th, 2022

Oh my darlings today I actually saw temperatures that were in the 60s. It was still 66 and really only before 9 am but I saw it and I took advantage of it. and today thee was no one else out. Which was surprising given the drop in temp and the relatively comfortable conditions.

It was pleasant though. I nice walk, my own private park and no additions to my fitness plan, just the walk. I did see Peanut poke his head into the window to watch me walk by though. Luckily he was safely inside Mary’s house. He goes home on Sunday and I’m hoping she keeps a bit more control over him until then.

I don’t mind pitching in to chase the dog, I just don’t want to do it often.

So the walk was nice and quiet, work has been nice and quiet. I’m trying not to find any of that suspicious and just enjoy it. It is a bit strange when chaos seems to become the norm.

For those looking for back to school savings, the sales have started going up. I’m going to try and include a few each post. I hope it helps.

Foreo has one that runs from now until August 31st. You can get either 20% off sitewide or 33% off UFO ini, with 2 free boxes of mask (Make My Day + Call it a Night) by using the code: GOLD33.

Sleepyhead has stand-alone mattress topper covers for 2-inch and 3-inch XL Twin toppers, and our 3-inch Queen topper on sale Use code SUMMER20 for $20 off or SLEEPY10 for 10% off, whichever will work best for your order.

And The Underclub now has the return of Bralette subscriptions. In case you want a fabulous bralette to go with your fantastic underwear subscription. They are hands down my favorite subscription service. I adore the all inclusive styles and wearing the underwear makes me feel pretty all the way down. Plus as silly as it sounds, if I know that I am wearing pretty underwear, I feel more confident. So I will always love wearing pretty underwear. And if you can get a bralette to match, even better.

Today’s Look:

Primer: Touch in Sol No Poreblem Primer

Foundation: Real Her Powerwear Probiotic Foundation

Bronzer/Blush/Highlight/powder: Pur 4-in-1 Skin Perfecting Powders Palette

Eyeshadow: OFRA Signature Palette: Symphony

Mascara: Give Them Lala Beauty Mascara

Brows: iMethod Beauty Eyebrow Stencil Kit (currently on sale)

Lips: Uoma Beauty Lip Liner

Okay lets have a look at today’s products. The Real Her foundation I went back and looked up and didn’t see a review for so I’m guessing it came in with a bunch of makeup products, was tried and forgotten, so I am trying it now and will rotate through different primers as I get a feel for it. Today’s primer is an old favorite, the No Poreblem Primer. It is light weight and porefilling. I really like it. Plus the pink tones of it mostly melt into my skin but still give a slightly healthy look to it. Especially under a matte foundation. It doesn’t make my skin more pink, just a little bit brighter, I think anyway. This is not my first bottle of this primer and i doubt it will be my last.

the foundation is holding up well today too. It covers well and while I did need to use the makeup sponge to get rid of a few brush streaks, it is sitting very well on the skin and not emphasizing any fine lines, which is nice.

The face palette I used from PUR is one of my favorite travel palettes because I happen to like all four of the powders included. I don’t tend to reach for it when I am not traveling though. I really should reach for it more. The powders are buildable rather than highly pigmented and it is easy to get a softer more natural look from them. Which is one of the reasons I travel with it soft often. It can be beefed up for a night out or toned down for daily use. I always find it surprising as i don’t tend to have the best luck with PUR products. these I really like though.

The iMethod stencils are now my standard. I will try other pomade but I do love those stencils. I also really like the Uoma Beauty Lip Liner. I’m sure I’ll put some sort of lip gloss over it later but for now I like the color and feel of it. It is one of the few lip liners I can actually wear as lipstick without feeling like my lips are parched.

Which leaves us with the OFRA eyeshadow palette. Today I used the lightest matte of the three and then added a little of the highlight in the corners. It is still highly pigmented but it is not as dominating as the cranberry shade. It worked out well as a more or less one and done look. It has reddish tones so it is similar to the other looks with this palette. I think the brown and highlight are the only two that don’t lean into the red so maybe I’ll try a look with just the two of them next and see if there is a wider difference. But over all I enjoyed the palette, it was easy to use. and didn’t require a lot of work or thought. Which is nice on a rushed morning.

Over all I am pleased with today’s makeup and happy to see how it lasts the rest of the day. I hope you are having a fantastic day and that your afternoon end on a high note.
