FOTD 7/8/11... We're Stepping Back into the Comfort Zone

Hey-lo Beauties! So we are doing the RIGHT SIDE of the WnW Comfort Zone 8 Pan Palette today!!!!
WOooHOooOO... Comfort Zone

My nose looks huge... but I like the eyes

Prettyyyyy

I think it's a nicer neutral but dramatic enough to draw attention

And here my lovely beauties is how I did it!

FACE:
  • Moisturized... Oil-Free Moisture SPF 35 from Neutrogena
  • Milk of Magenisa as a primer... I will be doing a review on MONDAY of this!
  • Under eyes: Milani Secret Cover Concealer Cream in 07 Natural Beige mixed with PF Concealer Twins in Yellow/Light (Blended out with elf Concealer brush and fingers)
  • Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation in 103 True Ivory (Applied with elf's Powder Brush... the Flat one)
  • Everything set with elf's High Definition Powder (Applied with included puff) only LIGHTLY pressed in all over the face!
CHEEKS:
  • elf Blush in Candid Coral (applied to the apples using the elf Complexion Brush)
  • Contoured using the darker bronze in the NYC Sun 2 Sun Bronzing Powder (elf Professional Blending Brush)
  • Highlight the cheekbones using the 'eyelid' shade from the LEFT side of the "Comfort Zone" Palette
EYES:
  • Prime the lids using the 'Primer' side of elf's Line Sealer & Primer
  • Apply WnW IdolEyes Cream Eyeshadow Pencil in Pixie all over the lid
  • ALL SHADES ARE ON THE RIGHT side OF THE PALETTE!
  • I applied the 'eyelid' color all over the eyelid (Packed on using the elf Professional Eyeshadow Brush)
  • Next I used the 'crease' shade to go halfway through the crease, to the middle of the eye, and lightly on the outer V and BLENDED it the hell out (Using elf's Professional Crease Brush & elf's Professional Blending Eye Brush)
  • Then I used the 'definer' shade to DEFINE the outer V and go onto the very outer part of the lid (Using the elf Professional Eye Crease Brush) and lightly blend it out
  • Then I applied the 'browbone' shade on the browbone and on the inner corner
  • Next I tightlined using PF's Glam Green Eyes Shimmer Strips  Custom Enhancing Gel Cream Liner I used the GREEN shade (Applied with my elf Eyeliner Brush)
  • I used Milani Liquif'Eye in black on the waterline
  • Next, I smudge the PF Green Cream Liner under the lower lash line from the outer corner to halfway in.
  • Then I curled and applied my L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Soft Black (I"M IN LOVE WITH THIS MASCARA)!
LIPS:
  • I applied WnW Wild Shine in 203 or 601... I think I hate that they don't have names 
  • Topped that off with elf Super Glossy Lip Shine SPF 15 in Pink Kiss
And that's it! If you wanna see my look based on the other side of this palette click here >>>>  Other Comfort Zone Look

This is probably really dramatic... but I loved it!

I had a crease... I fixed it after this picture!

FACE:
  • I started with Neutorgena Oil Free Moisturizer with SPF 35

  • On the cheeks I used the Blush (Applied with elf's Complexion Brush)
  • I contoured using the Bronzer (Applied with a contour brush)
EYES:
  • I applied elf's Eyelid Primer all over the lid
  • Then I applied elf Eyeshadow Cream Duo in Black Licorice (Only the SLIVER) all over the lid and blended slightly into the crease
  • ALL OF THE COLOR ON THE LID IS FROM ELF'S EYE BRIGHTENING QUAD IN PUNK FUNK
  • I took the pink of this quad and packed it on the inner half of the lid (Applied using the elf Professional Eyeshadow Brush)
  • Then I cleaned off the brush and used it in the purple of this quad and packed that all over the outer half of the lid
  • Then I took my elf Professional Eye Blending Brush and blended the two colors together to get rid of the harsh lines!
  • Next, I used the blue from the quad as a definer and outer V shade and BLENDED BLENDED BLENDED (I used the elf Professional Eye Crease Brush)
  • Then I used the whitish color from the quad to highlight the browbone and the inner corner. (No branded, just a flat soft brush...)
  • I then tightlined using elf's Cream Eyeliner in black, while making it thicker on the outer corner then the inner corner (elf Professional Eyeliner Brush)
  • I used Milani's Liquif'Eye Liner in Aqua for my waterline, going from the outer corner and halway in.

My Target & Big Lots Haul!!!! elf, Wet n Wild, Rimmel!!!

So, I have a Haul today!! Keep reading beauties!

So, first up is the elf Beauty Book! I have been messing around with the idea of a whole palette of neutrals for a while, and $4.50 was a lot better then the Naked palette for $42!

elf's Beauty Book Neutral Eye Edition    

They're all nicely pigmented and blend beautifully!

Next we have elf's Eye Brightening Quad in Punk Funk! Can't have just neutrals here!!! ($1)

elf's Eye Brightening Quad in Punk Funk

No base or primer, just straight from the quad...




Next, we have elf's Studio Blush in Candid Coral


I love this packaging!

Beautiful Color & Shimmer
So this swatch does not do this color justice it is BEAUTIFUL!   
Next, we half elf's Contouring Blush & Bronzer! I have been so excited to buy this because everyone says it's a dupe for NARS Orgasm & Laguna (?) And I LOVE Orgasm.... and I must say I think it's a decent dupe!

I love the NARS like packaging too!
So pretty!!!!!!
Once again, the swatch provides little justice for the beautiful color!
Next, we have elf's lipstick in Classy!
I'm not so hot on this packaging... a little cheap... But it was only a $1!
I liked a little more out of the plastic... but still UGH about it!

I'm in love with this beautiful pinky color! I cannot wait to wear it!
Next, we have the elf Complexion Brush!
I love this brush for blush!

It's so SOFT! 
Next, we have the Concealer Brush... 

Do I need to explain this one?
Next, we have the elf Wet Gloss Lash & Brow Clear Mascara
This is pretty simple too.. LOL!
Next we have elf's Super Glossy Lip Shine SPF 15 in Honey Do
So pretty!

I love this color!
Last elf product I swear! Lol, elf's Brush Shampoo
I cannot wait to see how this cleans my brushes!

Next, I picked up L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Original in Soft Balck
I have nothing really to say because I haven't tried it yet... But I am looking forward to seeing how it works

Brush seems promising!
Next, something from Rimmel! Rimmel's (new?) Glam'Eyes Mascara in Black
Claims to be ultra voluminous high definition mascara!

I'm in LUV with this brush!

And the packaging is so adorbs!

LOVE IT!
Next we have a couple Wet n Wild products, starting with Wet n Wild's Cream Liner

And then 2 Wet n Wild Wild Shine Lipsticks
They came together, with no actual names or numbers on them... but I found them at Big Lots!

This is the darker red

It goes on nicely!

Pretty dark pink!

Lalalla!
