ART of EYES: Subtle Smokey Estee Lauder


Ordered this a few weeks ago, and I am very excited to use it! 

Here is a close up of the products it came with, and I have heard really good things about the eyeliner and that it lasts all day. I have also been wanting to try the concealer by the Double Wear line since it claims to cover skin very well. 

Loving the colors on this! All of them look like they will work together nicely, I have yet to try these colors, but I am excited to swatch them soon with a FOTD Look! 
The only negative thing that I would have to say is the size of this compact is fairly small which might be a problem with using them with some of my larger eyeshadow brushes...but we will see. 

The bag and the box it came in, I like the bag it's very cute and I will most likely use it in my purse for traveling purposes to keep my fav products with me.

FOTD: Lancome Shadows and Foundation Look

Me wearing the shadows from my Lancome GWP quad. I didn't use the peachy color in this particular look, but I do love that color! I wanted a classic look for day or for night time fun, and I thought the colors blended very well together. The look lasted the whole day without using any primer on my eyes!

I am also wearing the Lancome foundation, which I have enjoyed wearing. I found it lasted me a good 8 hours with one powdering since I have oily skin. I like that it does not get cakey or separate during the day, which I have had some problems with in the past with wear time on some other foundations. The finish on this is more on the dewy side I would say, so I had to set my face with some loose powder for a more matte look. 

On my lips I have on Shy Girl from MAC, I got this shade about 2 months ago, and I really like it for my skin tone. It has been a great nude for me to wear when I don't feel like wearing a bold lip. I find that it can show chapped lips, and I would put some lip balm on before applying this.
