What I'm Wearing: Ultra Mattes

Keeping with the same idea of my last What I'm Wearing Post, I kept the lips very shiny. I even wore lip gloss which I usually dread. To balance that, I left the rest of the face matte. Matte eyes, matte blush, matte bronzer. I went for a very subtle daytime smokey eye using the Sleek Ultra Mattes v2 Palette which I got during my last swap with Latasha

EYES: Urban Decay Primer Potion, Sleek Ultra Mattes Palette v2, L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara.
FACE: Revlon PhotoReady Concealer in Light/Med, Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder.
LIPS: Tarte LipSurgence Matte Lip Tint in Exposed, Revlon ColorBurst Lip Gloss in Pink Ice.

  12. You should wear lip gloss more often, it looks so nice on you! I've always wanted to try a Sleek product, if only we got them in the US!

  17. Lovely look. I've been wearing the Clinique Chubby Stick for eyes a lot and taupe eyeshadows. I'm just loving quick and easy makeup looks at the moment.

  18. Your skin must be looking pretty good to achieve that result with just concealer and powder! :) I'm like you and rarely use my lip glosses ... Revlon do make some nice ones though. My favourite range from them are the Super Lustrous ones but I think they repackaged them a few months ago.

    1. At that moment it was. Although I did go heavy handed with concealer and used it around the nose and cheeks. Yes, I believe the repackaging also included reformulation x

    1. Aww, that's awesome! :) I love when makeup has sentimental value. I still remember my first high end face powder. My first e/s palette was one from the Maybelline Stylish Smokes collection x

  26. You look beautiful as always :D I love that you used all mattes with a glossy lip!

  27. That's such a pretty look - I can't remember the last time I wore gloss but you've made me want to break it out!

  28. I love that palette! And I love the colors you used, the matte eye look goes so well with the glossy lip color.
