A Shimmery Green Pick Me Up

Have you ever, after the end of a long day, just put on makeup on top of the makeup you’ve been wearing all day just for the heck of it fun? No? Yes? Maybe?

(Please say yes.)

That’s what happened here with a bunch of things from Revlon!

Sometimes you’ve just gotta swipe on some shiny green eyeshadow, ya know? The one in the Revlon Fully Loaded palette is on the frostier side, so if you like a high beam gleam, you might just love it.

Speaking of shimmer, the Twilight Gleam Highlighter has glow for days. I like my beams o’ light on the subtle side, so it’s not something I’d wear regularly on my upper cheekbones, but as an inner corner highlight, yeah, I’m into it.

I really like the ’90s vibes I get from this lip liner (Nude) and lipstick (Bare It All) combo. Out of habit, I blended in the lip liner, but the next time I plan to leave it unblended to get that ’90s-style supermodel lip with very defined edges.

I’m also wearing Revlon Big Bad Lash Mascara, which has lots of curl and lift, but not a ton of volume, and the ColorStay Eyeliner in Brown, too.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. I hope you’re having a great Wednesday so far.

    The lipliner in Nude is my kind of colour.

      I like it too! It works with so many shades.

    Happy Wednesday! You look lovely, and seeing YOU put green shadow over your regular makeup helps perk me up after a long day. HAHA! As I’m sure you know, I’m more likely to wash everything off. I hope all is well and things haven’t been too crazy leading up to the holidays. I can’t believe we’re almost there!

      I know, how did the time go by so fast? Are both the boys home for the holidays?

    I’ve sorta been on a low to no-buy, but dang, now I want to sneak off to the drugstore to see if I can find the lippie and the shadow quad.
    End of the day just before I wash my makeup off is my play time. That’s when I pull out new palettes or play with ideas to see how they look. If they don’t work out it’s OK, because I was about to wash my face anyway. Less stressful than trying a new look in the morning or before a big date.
    Sometimes Dear Husband will even ask “What took you so long to wash your face?” Ha ha.
    By the way, I saw this and thought of you.

    Just gorgeous! This would be such a pretty Christmas Eve look! I was eyeing this palette in the store and now I think I’m getting it next time. 😊 I’m obsessed with that mascara too, I’m on my third tube this year (I think that’s a record for me in terms of mascara loyalty?).

    I don’t think I have ever done this – I usually can’t wait to take it off to get rid of the day.
