Simple FOTD with Wet n Wild Comfort Zone MAC Club dupe

Hadn't done a proper FOTD in a while, so after I put my makeup on today I decided to take some pictures.

Pretty basic look here.  I did my face very simply with my MAC Mineralized Skin Finish Natural in Light which I've been using for foundation lately, Revlon PhotoReady Concealer under my eyes, Wet n Wild blush in Pearleascent Pink.  The blush is very powdery and pigmented, it can get out of control pretty quickly.  I was a little overenthusiastic using it, had to buff over with the MSFN.

Before putting on primer or anything, I was compelled to use the Tarte emphasEYES aqua gel eyeliner, I have only used it once when I tried it on my waterline and that did not go well, to say the least.  It's so liquidy, it melted into my eyeballs and immediately had blackened smeared tears running down my face.  Not exactly the look I was going for, not to mention it was incredibly painful.  So!  Finally got over the trauma of that experience and slapped it on my upper lashline.  It is incredibly soft, feels cold/wet and very easy to make a mess.  Just swatching it, a big chunk broke off.


Wanted to just smudge out an eyeshadow on top of the less-than-precise line so I grabbed the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone palette I've been enjoying - mainly for the MAC Club dupe (red-brown with teal pearl flash).  Applied it over the liner but eyelids were still looking kind of blotchy so I put on the Physicians Formula Glam Green Eyes cream eyeliner on the lid, lightly blended out the WNW Club dupe over the PF.  I picked that mainly because I hadn't used primer and I know these don't crease.

Used the light golden brownbone lightly in the inner corner to perk up eyes a bit, used L'Oreal Telescopic Carbon Black mascara on lower lashes, Physicians Formula organic mascara on top lashes.  Used the clear side of my Prestige brow duo, didn't feel like fiddling with making brows look nice.

Lastly for lips I used the L'Oreal Infallible gloss in Sunset which has a pretty heavy shimmer component, it is long wearing and sticky so you do have the less than pleasant leftover glitter stuck to your lips.  To lighten up a bit and hopefully decrease the look of lip lines, I popped some Revlon gloss in Peach Petal over it.


And a sidenote, we have what seems to be the last weekend of summer so I pulled out the chartreuse dress for one last go before the Fall/Autumn really starts.

  1. Love the look! I just bought the comfort zone palette tonight...I was looking for the new wnw palette I think it's called shine or something but it was sold out. I'll keep looking for it though. I can't wait to play with my new palette tomorrow!!!

    1. Oh, thank you! Comfort Zone is definitely a good one, lots of interesting shadows and tons of options for different looks. :) Hope you were able to find the Drinking a Glass of Shine palette, looks like a good round-up of their matte shadows, same as the I <3 Matte palette last year. I've heard good things about the Sparkle 'Til Morning palette too. :)
