By Candlelight

I threw together a pretty quick look today since I wanted to run out and do errands. I did a retinol treatment on my skin last night, Alpha Hydrox Retinol ResQ, which I followed up with Oil of Olay’s Regenerist Night Treatment.

Paint Pots, Fluidlines & Other Gels

So I have a thing for paint pots, even if I haven’t been using them much lately. I decided to swatch the majority of my paint pots, fluidlines, and other gel products for you to check out. I first started with MAC Paint Pots, picking up Bare Study and Blackground. I used to use Bare Study as a base for my eye shadow looks until I realized how much it muted the color, so I then moved on to eye shadow primer. One of the things I really love about paint pots is how well they hold onto shadows and keep them from creasing on me. Except for Delft. Delft is pretty but that color creases on me more than any other paint pot I’ve owned. […]
