Would you believe me if I told you that I purchased this beauty before I moved? Because I did! I don’t really buy a lot from Benefit Cosmetics, but their packaging is super cute and I do love their blushes! And this one in particular really called to me.

GALifornia is a beautiful golden pink blush. They say the embellished gold overspray lifts away with each use and that the formula is infused with subtle shimmer throughout that gives your cheeks a soft sheen. I’d say this is pretty spot on, but you have to get past that overspray to truly enjoy what this beauty has to offer. And I was so not disappointed! It’s easily one of the prettiest blushes in my collection. It’s not one that I reach for often, but boy does it make a statement when I do!

Application can be a little tricky during the first few uses. I really had to get past that gold to get that beautiful coral/pink to show up on my cheeks. I didn’t want to go scraping away because I didn’t want to ruin the beauty that is this blush. I had to swirl my brush around, tap off the gold, and swirl until I saw pink on my brush. It sounds like more work than it actually was. I swear. Aside from that, it applied and blended nicely. I love how it gave my cheeks with a little extra glow!

You can see GALifornia in action below! You can see that beautiful coral/pink shade just below my highlighter. Which I probably could have gone without, but hey a little extra glow never hurt anyone!

Would you look at that! I’ve already made some changes around here! Most of you probably won’t notice as they are minor changes. But yay for progress!

Today I’m featuring a new-to-me brand on the blog. How pretty is The Neo Bronzer from Kevyn Aucoin? This pretty palette contains a highlighter, blush, and bronzer in one! You can use them individually or blend them together. The shade featured here is Capri which is a cool pink. When swirled together this beauty leaves my cheeks with a really pretty more natural looking color. Along with a subtle glow.

I’ve actually been reaching for this a lot lately. I’ve been making it a point to do my makeup before leaving the house even if it’s just to run a small errand. Usually I just go bare faced, but I feel so much more put together even with just a quick look. These all-in-one types of products are perfect for such an occasion. I don’t have to fuss over what products to wear, digging them out of their designated spots, laying them out, and then putting them all away afterward. This really does save me some time in the morning. I can also see it coming in handy during traveling as well.

Speaking of, would you like me to start adding other products I’m wearing at the bottom of my posts? I’ve been trying to make things easier by including prices as well as linking directly to products being reviewed. I wasn’t sure if I should add a quick breakdown of each look. Not that they’re hella glamorous or anything, but I figured I’d ask. Please tell me what you think!

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup

I believe I’ve tried the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup before, but I don’t remember if I liked it or not. Either way, I’ve been meaning to give it another try.

The Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup is a medium-full coverage foundation. While this is a little more coverage than I’m used to, I actually ended up loving it! I tend to shy away from fuller coverages because I’m afraid of it looking unnatural. That wasn’t the case with this foundation though. I’m really digging it. It did a great job at covering up imperfections and evening things out without feeling heavy! It claims to be lightweight, but I wouldn’t personally go that far. It definitely wasn’t heavy, but I did feel it on. But it was a comfortable wear so the lightweight claim doesn’t bother me.

Application was really easy! It’s on the thick side and does set a little faster than some of my other foundations. But I didn’t feel like I had to rush the application process. In case you’re wondering, I applied this with my BeautyBlender. My only issue is that it doesn’t come with a pump. However, it looks like you can purchase one separately.

Overall, I’d have to say that this foundation is a winner in my book! It applies nicely and looks surprisingly natural for a medium-full coverage foundation.
