FOTD: Classic Red Lips + Sasa Haul! + Coastal Scents HD Foundation Help


I decided to try and find a look that would compliment the red lips so of course I just went with a simple classic liner look and barely anything else. I am definitely liking red lips more and more, but I still want the a matte red lipstick instead of a shiny finish. For some reason, I just think that it will look more subtle on me if it's not a shiny finish.. Enjoy!

Face:
  • MAC Studio Fix Fluid - NC 25
  • MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer - NC 30 - yes I need to buy the right shade for me now :P
  • Prescriptives Camouflage Cream - Yellow/Orange Medium 04
  • Palgantong Theatrical Powder
Eyes:
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Brule (nude matte colour) - all over the lid
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Showstopper (matte very dark brown) - eyebrows
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Espresso (matte muted golden brown) - very slight line under the lower lash line just to define the eyes a little more
  • Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Liner - Black Ink - simple slightly winged line
  • Rimmel Eye Kohl - White
  • Maybelline Mascara - The Colossal Volum Express - I'm definitely ehhhh with this mascara...
  • NYX False Eyelashes - #EL 128
Lips:
  • Chapstick
  • Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte - Red Temptation #16

MY SASA.COM HAUL ARRIVED TODAY! :D YAYYY!! I woke up to my boyfriend telling me that there was a package for me, you couldn't have gotten me out of the bed faster I swear! I was ecstatic I probably scared my boyfriend off a bit :P

I need help girls! I am dying to get my hands on the Coastal Scents HD Foundation but I am definitely stuck on what shade to get. I watched Fafinettex3's review on it last night and the colours that I saw on the video definitely does not look like the shade picture provided on the website. I have been wanting to try a HD foundation for so long and for the $16.95 price tag on the Coastal Scents one, how could I refuse???

If anyone of you guys have bought the Coastal Scents HD Foundation before, would you pretty please leave a comment telling me what shade you are in another foundation (MAC, MUFE, etc) and then tell me which shade you got in the CS HD Foundation and whether it was a good match or not? I know this is totally a long shot as the product JUST came out but if anyone could help, that would be so awesome! Thank you in advance! :D

=============================================

Ohhhh by the way! Please don't get offended if I don't "follow" your blog, I don't really check updates on blog through that feauture, I do it through my blog roll :) So if your blog is on my blog roll, I am definitely keeping up with your blog and reading it religiously :) I'm up to 67 followers by the way, it's so weird to me that people like my blog, don't get me wrong, I love the fact that people take an interest in me and my life, but I never thought that many people would :P Thank you so much for the support and once I hit 100 or 150 followers, I might have a giveaway! :D <3

  7. I'm so jealous! :) I love waking up to packages.. ahah! I love your red lips, I love to rock red lips ^_^ I need some new eyelash glue also.. my duo tip broke off probably because I tried to shut it TOO tight xD

    *I am now following*

    And YES, we were fighting over something really stupid, I admit it is actually my fault but there was another outburst after we made up! That was DEFINITELY not my fault and when it's not my fault I will YELL (in this case text) back with an argument! haha :)

    BTW, your skin is looking flawless! ^_^

  13. hi! =] i was having the hardest time picking out a shade in the coastal scents hd foundation line too... but i found this:
    http://www.sirvinya.com/2009/11/swatches-of-coastal-scents-hd.html

    swatches of all of the shades! =]

    i hope this helps! =D

    btw... i'm a mac nc30 - nc37 (nc30-nc33ish in winter) (nc34-nc37ish in summer). it really depends on much i end up tanning that summer. LOL. i still wasn't completely sure but i ended up geting st-05 and st-04. i think i'm might be the a color inbetween the two, so i'll probably end up mixing them. =]

    from what i can see, you look similar to my coloring (maybe a little lighter, cause i tanned quite a bit this summer. LOL) so you might be an st-04.

    just my opinion though. take a look at the swatches that i linked you too! they're MUCH MORE accurate than the pictures on coastalscents.

  16. Great haul from sasa and I love your red lip/neutral eye look! It's beautiful on you ;)
    Sorry I haven't used Coastal Scents HD foundation so I can't help you there with a shade!
    Thank you for dropping by at my blog =) No I don't use anything for my eyelashes LOL. Actually my eye lashes aren't long (at least compared to my friends they aren't) and I use MAC Prep + Prime lash (any lash primer is essential for me) combined with L'oreal Voluminous mascara. I find that combination works wonders on me and adds like 5 cm to my eye lashes LOL.
