Wearing Make Up For Ever’s HD Microfinish Blush in Quickie
It’s ridonkulous how much time I spend trying to get a “no makeup” makeup look. Sometimes I’ll end up spending more time on something subtle with natural looking blushes, lipsticks and whatnot than it takes to do something bolder like a cat eye with pink glossy lips!
Getting makeup to NOT look like makeup can take lots of layering and blending, but there may be another way…
Enter Make Up For Ever’s HD Microfinish Blush ($25, available in 14 shades and carried at Sephora), a new, easy-to-apply liquid cream.
Doesn’t it bug you when you can see cream blushes sitting on top of your skin? This bad boy doesn’t do that. Originally designed for television and movie sets with high definition cameras, HD Microfinish Blush absorbs right into my skin, leaving behind a natural glow (I think so at least).
I’ve been going between Walk of Shame (a creamy bubblegum pink) and Quickie (a salmon pink), wearing both in various ways — on bare skin, beneath foundation, on top of foundation and even on top of powder. No matter how I’ve used ‘em, I think they’ve looked pretty good, and never cakey or heavy. Not only that, but they’ve stayed put all day long.

Application’s a cinch, too. I’ve been dabbing a few dots on my cheeks and blending with my fingers, which takes less than a minute to do. It might even be faster to apply than powder blush.
I can’t wait to try more of the colors, particularly PDA (a pinkish nude) and Truth or Dare (a hot pink).
Have you checked these out yet? What’s your take on them?
First they’re sour, and then they’re sweet
I go through phases where I’ll get all obsessed with certain snacks and foods, and lately I’ve been craving Sour Patch Kids 24/7.
Late last night I almost asked El Hub to make a run to the store for some. It’s THAT serious!
But I never eat the green ones…
I finally got my fix at lunch today. I swear each one tasted like manna from heaven (except for the green ones… I never eat the green ones).
Anywho, enough about my sweet tooth. Do you have any plans this weekend? It’s almost Friday, yay!
I’m thinking about seeing Alice in Wonderland. Have you seen it yet?
