FOTD + OOTD: You had a lot of crooks tryna steal your heart, never really had luck, couldn’t never figure out how to love

I've been requested a look using MAC Surf Baby Cheek Powder in My Paradise that I recently won in Michelle's 100 followers giveaway (thank you again Michelle!) and I couldn't wait to show you how gorgeous it is!


OLAY  Regenerist Eye Touch of Concealer Eye Regenerating Cream *
Marcelle Concealer Palette - Universal Beige
Benefit That Gal Brightening Face Primer *
Sheer Cover Mineral Foundation SPF 15 - Bisque *
MAC Surf Baby Cheek Powder - My Paradise


L'Oréal Voluminous Carbon Black *
Too Faced Eye Shadow - Sitcom Siren


Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick - Pink In The Afternoon

L - R: only the blush color, only the overspray, both blended together

As I mentionned above, the sole purpose of this FOTD was to show you how gorgeous My Paradise looked once applied on the cheeks... but of course I forgot to take proper pictures before leaving for school, so I had to rush to take pictures with my phone once in my car, hence the crappy quality. I hope you can still see how gorgeous and shimmery it is? I have found the glitters to be quite chunky and hard to blend but I love how they tone down the blush a bit, because it's super pigmented.

* Product tested on animals. You may (or may not) be aware that Gaby's Beauty Blog recently went cruelty-free. However, I hope it's understandable that I can't simply throw away the products I have previously purchased that have unfortunately been tested on animals - believe me, I wouldn't hesitate if I were rich! My goal is to use up those products but not repurchase them in the future. Also, Gaby's Beauty Blog will no longer accept for review purposes products that have been tested on animals.
