MAKE UP FOR EVER Mat Velvet+ Foundation

I ordered this foundation from Sephora after I saw it on MakeupByTiffanyD's YouTube channel. It looked to yellow on her skin so I thought it would be perfect for me. Every single foundation I have ever tried has been to pinkish for my skin and it make's me look like a clam! I also knew that this foundation was oil-free, which is a plus for me because I have oily acne prone skin. I tried a few swatches on my arm as you can see and actually the camera is making it look better than it looks in real life. My arm IS much whiter than my face so it looks too dark for me but I put it on my face and it seems to be the right shade, just not the right color. It's a little to orangey and red for me. I got shade 40 because that is what MakeupbyTiffanyD had and I thought well she might be paler than me but I'd rather have foundation too light than too dark. I do really like the feel of this foundation is not oily AT ALL. And it is super soft. It feels great on my skin! But the color is just not right.

October Favorite Foods

Ok so I'm the type of person who loves to save my money. I don't buy tons of clothes or makeup or things like that. Because I USED to be like that and after that phase I realized how much money I had wasted on clothes I don't even LIKE anymore. Don't get me wrong, I love love love fashion. If I had the I would be dressed to impress 24/7. But, I don't and I would rather have money. What I do spend some of my money on though is food. I am a big FOODIE. I love food, love cooking, baking, eating...nom nom nom! I am always trying new things from the grocery store or new places to eat. Mexican and Italian are my favorites. But when I go to the grocery store I actually like shopping on the organic isle and trying new things they have there. A girl at my work introduced me to these Arizona Pomegranate Green Tea Iced Tea Stix. I absolutely love their pom. green tea that you can purchase in the bottle so I thought Hey, I'll try 'em. They are super delicious! I forget how much money they were but I got a box w/ 10 sicks in it and it must have been less than $5.00. So that's like 10 bottles of green tea! They taste just like the bottle. The only thing that is a BIT off is this tastes a little bit more SPLENDA-y than the bottled stuff. If you don't like splenda you might not LOVE this. I normally don't love splenda but I do really like these sticks!

Another thing I recently tried is BAKED chips. They have BAKED Dorito's BAKED Cheeto's & tons more. But those two are my favorites! They are SO much better for you than the originals and they taste just as great! I like the BAKED Cheeto's the best. They really do taste the same. The dorito's are a little "healthier" tasting ...but they still taste like dorito's. They have that addicting taste! :)
