FOTD 9.10.11 / Kimbra Inspired Look / Monthly favorites

So I'm really really sorry that it has taken me a month to post something new. Life kind of got in the way of blogging, but what can you do?

I have a FOTD/inspired look today. I based this look off of Kimbra's new music video "Good Intent". If you don't know who Kimbra is, she is a singer from New Zealand, and she is just precious. I really recommend you all checking out her music. In this video, she is being influenced by the 'saint' and 'sinner' side of her, and she pairs these personalities with a different color dress and lip color. I wanted to do all three personalities, but I couldn't find a lip color to go with one of them.

Last, but not least, I want to share a couple favorites of this past month. I didn't do one for July (naughty), and I still only have 5 items to share with you.

  • Rimmel Stay Matte Translucent Powder- This is super affordable and has proven to be a really good powder. It really does help keep the oil at bay.
  • Physicians Formula Conceal Rx in Green and Fair - I have been experiencing some pretty annoying breakouts this past month and decided to get some heavy duty concealer, and boy, is this some powerful stuff! The tiniest amount will cover exactly what you want to cover, and lasts for 12 hours. I like to use these before my foundation by mixing half a pea sized amount of each and stippling it on in places where I have a lot of redness. I also have found that the Fair version is an amazing dupe for Urban Decay's Primer Potion in Eden! I actually think this works better on me, and I have super oily eyelids.
  • Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in Skinny Jeans- I really love this stuff for smokey eyes. It really intensifies a look when it's used as a base, and since it is a creaseless formula, it lasts quite a while.
  • Tweezerman Eyelash curler - I was in desperate need of a new eyelash curler, and I have found this one to be really easy to use. It's about $2 and it curls my lashes without a lot of effort.
