FOTD: Week in Review/to Come Vol. 1 - Warm Brown Smokey Eye and Red Gradient Lip

Hey everyone! 

Today's look is inspired by a realization I had recently. I have this tendency to review products and then move onto the next thing without using what I've reviewed as much as I would like to. In an effort to actually use up products, I thought I would start doing a Face of the Day (FOTD) using including the products I've reviewed during the week or will be reviewing soon. Kind of as a refresher for things I tried out and a preview for things soon to come.

Today's face will be featuring two products I reviewed and three that will be coming up. If you missed out, I reviewed the NUDESTIX Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil in Belle and Royal. Reviews for the Jouer Matte Moisture Tint, Lancome Juicy Shaker in Walk the Lime, and the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons palette will be posted soon!

I decided to do a warm reddy brown smokey eye look and tried my hand at a gradient lip with the NUDESTIX lip pencils topped with the Lancome Juicy Shaker for a glossy finish.

For the eye look, I used Bordeaux from the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons palette as the main color and blended it out with a mixture of Pecan Praline and Almond Truffle. 

Products Used:

Jouer Matte Moisture Tint in Beige Naturel
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed
City Color Cosmetics Timeless Beauty Palette (the middle highlight color)
Milani Eyeshadow Primer
Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette (Bordeaux on the lid, Almond Truffle + Pecan Praline to blend it out, Divinity as the highlight
Essence Make Me Brow Gel Eyebrow Mascara in Browny Brows
NUDESTIX Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil in Belle and Royal (Belle applied around the edge, Royal applied in the middle and blended out)
Lancome Juicy Shaker in Walk the Lime

Hope you enjoy this week's eye/face makeup and I'll be posting reviews on Jouer Matte Moisture Tint, Lancome Juicy Shaker in Walk the Lime, and the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons palette soon!

    We must be on the same wavelength! I did a red lip FOTD today too. Love your look!

  2. I love using the products in my stash. You picked some really beautiful ones.

  3. I love the shades you used for the eye look. I have the TF Bon Bons palette, so I might try and recreate it. :)

  4. I do the same thing--not enough time to really enjoy all my goodies!

  5. I need to start doing something similar - I'm always on to the next thing, even if I loved what I reviewed. Love, love that juicy shaker over the ombre lip.

  6. Such a sweet little smoky look that is perfect for every day. I love when you can give your eyes a little drama, but still get an every day look ;) I love my TF Bon Bons, I need to pull it out and do something like this.

  7. Guilty as charged! I often try things, review them, and then never touch them again because there's always something else to test. I gotta shop my stash more often.

  8. I'm the exact same way, so many neglected products!

  9. I feel you, it happens to me to
