"Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
- Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the US
Has anyone use Cover Girl's Outlast Foundation (the 2 in 1 that includes a primer/moisturizer & foundation)? Basically, I didn't think that it would be a decent foundation because I am not really into products from Cover Girl (they should update the packaging for their products, especially the lipsticks) but it gives medium coverage without appearing too thick!
Why I would use this foundation
-affordable ($6-8 in drug stores, I'm not sure if this line is still available)
-left side contains prep primer/moisturizer that has spf (I think it is spf 15) & it is odorless
-this is awesome because sometimes most of us (including myself) don't apply moisturizer before applying foundation and the foundation ends up appearing too dry and settles into our lines or pores
-right side contains the foundation itself
-foundation itself has light to medium coverage (buildable), it doesn't feel cakey or thick
-reduce appearance of large pores
Seriously, it gives great coverage while manages to help you look somewhat more natural, but I will update later with its staying power throughout the day. (I also read other reviews and the users really complimented on its staying power.) Much better than I had assumed =)
Tip: don't add lipgloss onto your eyelids
Of course different lighting make our skin look different and in pictures also, but in real life, I like it!! =)
Today has been cloudy and cold, even some rain earlier. Fall and Winter seems to always bring with them feelings of sadness, don't you think so?
It must be really beautiful in other parts of the world, well the other states even, when leaves transform colors and they fall on your head. Or when you jump over a pile of them and giggle until your stomach hurts. California-eh, not so much. Below are some photos I've found online of amazingly gorgeous of what Fall season is like in other parts of the world.
....Finally, Fall season in Northern California, USA -_- California's Fall and Winter season is nowhere as beautiful as the other states and the East Coast, but at least our flowers still bloom (like the one below). Our our Springs and Summers are great!
This is the 2nd day I've been wearing The Face Shop Freshian Mascara, yet I keep forgetting to take pictures of the eyelashes instead of myself =( So far, it does not budge or smudge at all- but then again, this is Fal…
This was me roughly 3 weeks ago when I first embarked on my journey to run everyday for 100 days. Before this project, it was difficult for me to complete a 1 mile run or jog, without huffing and puffing, but after 3 weeks, I can make it to 1 mile without wanting to give up. I used to be quite jealous of people who sweat a lot at the gym because I did not have the perseverance to run to the point where I would sweat, I just gave up too easily.
People say if you fully commit yourself to something for 100 days, you'll blown yourself away, you might even be really good at it. To be honest, I have not run everyday since I have started, but I have done the best I can within the last 3 weeks. I should be up to 5 miles/run now, but this is the breaking point. I've jogged up to 4 miles (with a walking break after every mile), but my mentality hasn't been there recently. I run at our local community center and I would watch The Big Bang Theory or Modern Family as I run, but there …
