Goodbye Bare Essentials! After noticing I was breaking out like a 13 year old the past couple of weeks I came to the conclusion that my skin is way too dry for Mineral Powder. Plus the brushes were too high maintenance and unless you washed them every day, I'm sure that just didn't help..
Plus I was a hot tranny mess every time I tried to apply it. And some days I forgot to put it on before I got dressed and had to deal with figuring out how to get Medium Beige Powder off my JCrew Cardigan. Not an easy fete.
Cue in sad JQ walking into a Sephies during lunch and asking them to cure me. I immediately headed to NARS and started grabbing whatever foundation looked bronze and goddesslike (my natural tone) when finally a lady came over to talk to me. "I want my face to go away" I told her, and after taking a look, she asked if I'd ever heard of Korres? Nopers, I had not. She then went on and on to talk about how it would be perfect and make everything fabooloos, plus help clear up my skin in the process. After she applied the Wild Rose set (serum, moisturizer, liquid foundation, concealer, blush and gloss) I was a changed women. I felt SO much better knowing it wasn't going to fade away within the hour, and my skin felt dewy and fresh, instead of caked all over. I only picked up the Foundation ($14 cheaper than NARS foundation!), Concealer and a pretty natural gloss.. PLUS I just found out about the Sephora Friends & Family deal this week so I will be hitting it up Sephie's again later for the rest of the items.
Now its going to take some discipline on my part. DO NOT TOUCH YOUR FACE DURING THE DAY, JULIE. But I think its is a lovely start.
And to all you beautiful ladies with perfect skin,
bitches cheers to you. I hope to be in your category soon.
