The search continues

After a particularly stressful week of work last month I promised myself that when it was over I would buy myself something frivolous. Who says we’re ever too old for rewards? I originally thought I’d buy myself a movie or a t-shirt or something like that, but then I saw a commercial for Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush Mousse makeup I decided that’s what I wanted. Not only do I love Emma Stone (and her complexion which is about as pale as mine), but I’m always on the lookout for foundation that’s new and different. As you can tell by the above photo, I’ve tried quite a few. Back in September I thought I had found the perfect makeup with L’Oreal True Match. I even wrote about it! But while it has a perfect shade for me (except right when we came back from Hawaii and I was every so slightly tan) and I love it’s powdery finish, it’s not ideal for the climate of Southern California. Living in Los Angeles has given me perpetually dry skin – especially on my face. My daily facial regimen usually involves either Cover Girl tinted moisturizer or just some Olay Complete moisturizer because the L’Oreal True Match doesn’t look that great on my dry skin. Very unfortunate. So when I was at Target today I finally got myself that long overdue reward by picking up some Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush Mousse makeup in the palest shade available. I’m hoping it’s an improvement over the other foundations I own, even thought it doesn’t have any sunscreen in it. I’ll wear it tomorrow and see how it does, but I’m prepared for it to be another flop. Most cosmetic products that I try turn out that way. So if I end up hating it that will be OK. If I didn’t try I’d always wonder!
