Friday Favorites

April 5, 2019

Hello blog friends.  Yay, we made it to the end of the week and Friday.  I'm super excited that it's the beginning of April and that means warmer temps.

 Today I'm sharing some makeup that I'm loving lately.

1.   Sephora MicroSmooth Backed Foundation Face Powder

I really like this powder foundation and I was turned on to this by a sales associate at the Sephora store.  I was looking for the powder foundation that I usually use and they didn't have it available in my shade.  The sales associate was so nice and talked to me about this powder foundation.  I tried two different shades on my face and we both agreed that we liked this shade on me, which is (15 Nude).

The only thing I don't like about this foundation is there is no powder sponge that comes with the compact.  The coverage is great and I only use this on my face and not under my eyes.

2.  Sephora Matte Perfection Powder Foundation

I love this powder foundation and this is the one that I usually use.  This is the perfect shade for me which is (08 Fair Neutral).  You can see in the photo above how much I love this powder foundation!  I am almost finished with it.

I tried to buy this compact in two different stores as I was starting to run low on it.  Sephora didn't have my shade, so I decided at that point to buy it online in the store.  This way I received free shipping.  You usually have to spend $50 before you receive free shipping.  This is one of the reasons why I LOVE Sephora and the sales associates.

This compact has a mirror and under the foundation is a compartment that holds the sponge.  I also like that I can get a lot of points when I buy the makeup to get free products.  I always choose a makeup item and not a cream because this is a great way to try out makeup that I've never used before.  P.S.  I hope that they don't discontinue this product in the color I like!

3.  NYX Retractable Lip Liner

I love this peach shade of lip liner and this color is MPL02 Nectar.  The lip liner is easy to apply and it looks great with my lipstick that I usually wear.  I really love the price of these lip liners and they range between $2.50 - $5.00.

4.  NYX Retractable Eye Liner

I really like this eyeliner and I've been using blue eyeliner lately.  It seems to make my eyes pop open and it has a softer look than the dark brown and black eyeliner that I also wear.  This eyeliner stays on my eyelids really well and it doesn't wear off like some eyeliners do after time.  This eyeliner color is Gypsy Blue and costs about $5.50.

5.  Sephora Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner

This is another blue eyeliner that I love using and the color of this is (17 Turquoise - shimmering bright aqua).  This is waterproof eyeliner and it stays on really well throughout the day for me.  The price of this is about $12.00.  This is a light blue eyeliner that looks good with black mascara and I don't need to wear any eyeshadow for the daytime.

I hope this post has given you some makeup ideas.  Have a Happy Friday and weekend.  :)

  1. What a great post...I am of the age where there's lots of facial lines...BOO!! i use a liquid foundation..I don't use foundation every day. I love the tinted moisturizer that I use daily. Still using CoverGirl lip stick...I do have a blush from Sephora that I really like.

  2. I would love to try the lip liner. I usually just use lip gloss but this would last longer. I still wear mineral makeup and love that it covers and protects my face in the sun. I don't wear eye makeup any more...and I miss it. Love your favs! Hugs!

  3. Oooh I have to check some of these out. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Julie, I always find something new for myself or to share with the kids when you post about make up. I love new finds! Thanks so much!

  5. I started wearing liner and mascara only, originally because I was in such a hurry in the a.m. but then it turned out I liked the look (and the simplicity). A little lipstick added to the mix and I'm good to go. I might try this blue one. Glad you like your foundation powder!
