What I've Been Wearing

One of my recent goals was to start wearing a full face of makeup after starting my new job. Easier said than done in the morning when I wake up at 5:45am! I've been doing pretty well though and I've been reaching for the same products so I thought I would share.
Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream in #13 - I've spoken about the Missha BB Cream before and I am so thrilled that they've finally released a color for us pale girls, #13 is a near perfect match for my skin. It can look a little dry though so I need to moisturize well prior to application. Those that are more normal to oily would probably love it even more. Lasts all day on me. Has medium coverage. I can usually get away with just this and a little concealer on my blemishes and I'm good to go. The only negative is the scent, it is very strong and perfume-y so those sensitive to scents should be careful.

Any pressed foundation/setting powder - This one is just one I'm trying to use up (see all the pan!) - I swapped for this Lorac powder ages ago and I just want it done.
Yves Rocher Watercolor Effect Blush - You can read more about my thoughts in the link but I love this liquid blush for a fresh look and it's very easy to apply.
Makeup Forever Aqua Cream #13 - I know I didn't speak highly of this product and I still really don't love it but I figured I'd use it, and just a little over UDPP brightens the lid for a really easy daytime look.
Any mascara - No photograph as I've just finished one and need to open a new one.
lipstick and/or gloss - changes daily!

So that's it. I know it's pretty bare bones at the moment but it's been working for me. I have quite a few lipsticks and glosses circulating in my handbag.  I still reach a lot for the Senna ones and I actually recently finished a lip product which you will see shortly as I need to write up and post my Empties post for March!

What are the products you've been wearing lately?

I have missha signature 13, got it for really cheap on ebay - $17 shipped! and I really like it,haven't noticed any scent but I also had pc 21 which was too dark/grey and I can't recall scent... probably wasn't paying attention :p

Guess what time I get up in the morning? 4:45!

I'm surprised that Missha BB cream looks dry on you. It actually makes my skin super oily. I wonder if it's because I use a darker shade?
