The Monday Post #2

Monday is by far the gloomiest day of the week for me, followed by Sunday simply because it precedes Monday. Hopefully, The Monday Post will give you some beauty inspiration and help you get through the week! 

Favorite beauty read/viewing: Beauty Professor gives an introduction to MAKE Cosmetics via glowing reviews of the Silk Cream Lip Color and Soft Focus Foundation. Is it wrong to add an entire brand to your wishlist? Because I just did.

Beauty goal: I'm normally too lazy and/or too sleepy to reach for liquid or gel liner in the mornings; however, every time I do a winged liner on my days off, I'm reminded of how much confidence it gives me. I guess I just really like how it looks on me. So, my goal this week will be to make the time and put in the effort to do winged liner for at least 3 days, simply because it makes me feel good...and that's more than enough reason to justify a beauty goal :)

Product Rediscovery: MAC Era eyeshadow is definitely a product that doesn't seem to get the credit it deserves. I find that the touch of shimmer spices it up just enough and keeps it from being just another boring neutral. I love wearing it alone on the lid or through the crease.

Beauty lust: When I posted about my NARS blush collection, I also listed three shades currently on my wishlist. After receiving quite a few comments on the post as well as on Twitter, the point was well taken and Dolce Vita has swiftly been pushed to the very top of my beauty wishlist.

Most looking forward to: Getting over being sick. My throat started hurting Thursday afternoon, and it's just been going downhill from there. I'm starting my next rotation today, and I can't wait to feel 100% again! 

Hope you all have a great week!


  1. lovely post! have a great week you too!



  2. gel eyeliner. do it! i seriously love doing a strong cat eye with MAC's blacktrack. its even better when the bf goes, "you look sexy...what's different' LOL!

    hope you get better. AND i'm thinking of putting Era into my MAC wishlist for IMATS. still on the fence. i'd like to build up my browns but i'm wondering how Era, Wedge and Cork differ...would you know?

  3. Urgh to Mondays but yay for Monday posts! GL on your winged eye adventure hehe. I think DV is definitely going to make it into my cart during the F&F Sephora sale.

  4. Thanks, Tracy! I guess it has to get worse before it gets better, right? :-/

  5. Believe it or not, I'm actually better with liquid liner than I am with gel! Ugh. Everything takes practice, I suppose. It's always a bonus with the boy likes it too :)

    I have Era and Wedge, but not Cork. I *think* Cork is the most cool toned one of the three and matte. Era has a little bit of shimmer, and Wedge is matte and a bit darker and warmer.

  6. Get well soon! Lots of honey and warm water :-)

  7. if you had to pick b/w era and wedge which do you reach for most? thanks for the info!

  8. Thanks, Kelly! So far so good (wearing winged liner today!). I think I might do the same during F&F.... ;)

  9. Thank you, Lily! Apparently, great minds think alike because I'm currently drinking warm water with lemon and honey :)

  10. Aww, i'm sorry you feel sick sweetie! It was my birthday yesterday and I got an attack of anxiety so can sympathise with not feeling too good! It's always fun to make goals for the week though :D It's what i do on my Sunday Sum Up posts and I find it makes me stick to them for the week

  11. Happy belated birthday, Rachel! I'm so sorry you had to suffer an anxiety attack on your special day though :( Hope you're feeling better!

  12. I really love this series! It gives me something to look forward to. I started doing this on my blog today. Thanks for being an inspiration! www.rethinkborders.com
