Waterproof Wonders 3: Maybelline SuperStay 24 Color

Next up in the waterproof series, is a lipcolor that is "everything proof", but still looks beautiful on the lips! Maybelline SuperStay 24 Color is a 2-step lipstick that really does stay in place for up to 24 hours. There is a lipcolor on one end, and a moisturizing balm on the other. This lipcolor comes in 30 shades, ranging from sheer nudes to bold brights. I love that the formula is sheer and slightly shimmery. Just enough shimmer to look natural and soft, no matte finish colors, which can be drying when they are the stay-on formulas.

My two favorite colors are Continuous Coral (bright pink-coral) and Timeless Toffee (pinkish nude). Continuous Coral is a similar shade color as my favorite summer lipstick, Estee Lauder Pure Color Lipstick in Nectarine. I wear the 24 color on the bottom and top with the EL lipstick. That way as the lipstick fades, I still have the "stain" of color from the Maybelline 24 color.

Colors L to R: Continuous Coral and Timeless Toffee

The Maybelline 24 Color ($8) is very impressive, it has the same texture as most of its department store rivals, but has more staying power and more color choices, and cost a fraction of the price!!!!

Waterproof Wonders 2: Estee Lauder Double-Wear Light Foundation

Alright, so this isn't technically waterproof (I have yet to find a foundation that actually is, and comes in the right shade). Estee Lauder Double-Wear Light Foundation isn't new, but it has been a staple in my cosmetic bag for the last few summers. It is a light to medium coverage foundation, it comes in 6 shades, its oil-free and fragrance-free, and gives 15 hour wear (per EL website). I apply this in the morning, then add the Hourglass Waterproof Bronzer and set it with Urban Decay All Nighter, and I'm good to go! Lasts through ZUMBA class, pool, beach, etc.

2 seems to be a good universal shade for light skin tones. I wear a 3 in the winter (light olive skin), and a 4 or 5 in the summer (tan olive skin).
