Face of the (end of) the day

It feels like a really long time since I showed my actual face around these parts, so here it is, in case some of you have forgotten (or if you're new, haven't actually seen it before).  I've had a very long day.  A good day, but a long day nonetheless.  It's now 7:16pm and I've eaten my dinner (salmon and kale and broad beans and asparagus) and I'm watching a programme about the Olympics.  Are any of you going?  I'm going to see Greco-Roman wrestling.  No, me neither.  Apparently the men are buff and the uniforms are skimpy though so....bargain.

Recently, with regards to my face, I've been sticking to the same basics and just changing up the lipstick.  I've also not been wearing foundation, just a smidge of tinted moisturiser.  No real reason, just a case of having reasonably clear skin at the moment so no need to plaster foundation over it.  I think it's definitely helped keep my skin clear as well, so that's nice.  I've basically run out of my moisturiser though so please recommend a new one for me.  Oily skin, you know the score.

So, what am I wearing, I hear you cry!  Well, let me tell you.

Murad Mattifying Primer* - full review coming very shortly but I swear this is a neverending bottle.  Four months anybody?
Botanics Tinted Moisturiser - ok, not brilliant.  Not a great colour match unless I have a tan.
Urban Decay primer potion - obvs
Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in Wheat - a nice mid brown.  Natural Collection Milk Chocolate is basically the same.
L'Oreal Carbon Gloss Superliner - obvs
Avon Supershock mascara - first use but it could be love
17 lipstick in Hot Chilli - the bestest, brightest red on the block.
Not much else to say, really.  I dyed my hair again at the weekend.  I'm now using a Semi-Permanent dye from Botanics in the shade Warm Terracotta.  I like the darkness of it.  I do it every six weeks.  I can't find a link to it, unfortunately.  So there.  Also, GIVEAWAY!  Do it, you know you deserve it.
