Wish List #1

Ever just surf the internet and start to dream? That's what I've been doing lately. These aren't necessarily things that I plan on buying any time soon but hey, a girl can dream...

Tiffany Key necklaces. Layer them together for a fun twist.
Classic Chanel! Enough said.

Tory Burch 'Reva' Leopard Flats. I would wear these in the Fall with everything.

Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 in the Multicolor Monogram. This is such a fun twist on a classic.

Keep dreaming!

Review: Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation

On my quest to find the perfect foundation I decided to try the one below:

Here is a few key things you need to know about this foundation:

1. It is IMPOSSIBLE to use a brush to apply this foundation. I tried a traditional foundation brush and a stippling brush. Both times I ended up with foundation on place other than my face. The best way to apply is with your fingers.

2. Use your fingers and blend this stuff out. The texture is very different from a liquid and cream foundation; very thick so make sure to spread it around.

3. The coverage can be anywhere from medium to full coverage depending on how much you apply. I love a full coverage foundation that gives me a flawless face. This was perfect.

As you can see from the picture I just finished using my Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation in Light Beige. It is a great drugstore product that provides amazing coverage. And as FYI I use MAC's Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in Medium Dark to set my foundation.

I think that because this foundation is such a creamy product those with dry skin should stay away because it may settle in those dry spots.

So what am I using now and what can you expect a review on in the near future? MAC's Studio Tech foundation (it comes in a compact and is a creamy product) in NC 42. I'm loving it thus far!
