What's On My Face?

Today I decided to try out Tarte's  Natural Lip Stain in "Joy", which is the peach shade of the lip stain collection. 

I'm not sure how peachy this looks in the photo because I noticed that photos I take on Photobooth are so washed out on PCs.  It's a creamy bright peach/coral shade that can be toned down upon application.

I really love these lip stains. For starters, the jumbo crayon-like packaging is too cute.  The color is very pigmented, just like those marker stains out there.  What makes these stand out from others is the consistency - a smooth balm that you just simply draw onto your lips. As far as staying power is concerned, it depends on how you like your stains.  The key word here is "natural" and that's exactly what it is after the initial hour of wear.  I like that it fades to a sheer wash of color.

On my cheeks I am wearing MAC MSF in Stereo Rose (which I am sure a lot of you are wearing this week :) and on my eyes I am wearing two shades from the Urban Decay Naked Palette, "Virgin" on the lid and "Buck" in the crease.  I keep my eye makeup really neutral so you probably can't even tell I'm wearing anything. 

Just throwing it out there, if you are looking for the ultimate neutral palette, this one is top notch amazingness. It's one of the best products that Urban Decay has ever released.  It was my splurge product of the month because I don't need it but I absolutely love it. No regrets!
