Dislikes+Opinions=New Discoveries

MAT LUMIÉRE LONG LASTING SOFT MAKEUP SPF 15






I absolutely hate this foundation.

I'm not quite sure if the MA gave me the right color but once applied i feel like I'm wearing tons of it. I feel very artificial and flaky. I explained to the MA that i have oily/acne prone/sensitive skin and for some reason she thought this was the most adequate choice. To be quite honest i would have chosen the MAC Studio Tech and my Studio Fix powder :/... more money doesn't necessarily mean good quality.

For some reason I have a tendency to ask my BF's sister for suggestions and opinions about certain products and she told me to go Nordstroms and search for Giorgio Armani's face fabric second skin nude makeup SPF 12...Can i say "LOVEEEEEs IT"... This does not give full coverage plus i wouldn't call it a foundation anyways, it's more like a tinted moisturizer. I love the texture and the coverage it gives me and the way it glides on very smoothly. I would definitely recommend this product for those who don't like to wear an excessive amount of make-up or make-up starters. It's $45.00 USD, little pricey but it's well worth it in my opinion.


The way i apply it:
1st:I apply a gel moisturizer on my face and let it set for 5 minutes

2nd: I apply Smash box's Photo finish primer all over and wait a few seconds

3rd: I apply the face fabric second skin nude makeup SPF 12 in #3

4th: I apply my blush, bronzer, etc.


Quick Note: when I took my little stroll through Nordstroms the lady at the Chanel counter told me that if I brought the foundation back she would exchange it for another one... pretty interesting.. I wonder if she would exchange it even if i dont have the box anymore?!?!?!


Foundations I would like to try at the moment:
-Make Up Forever HD
-MAC Studio Fix
-LaPraire- I don't think they will carry my color though. :::tears:::

Special Thanks to:

And it all started with a Gift Card





My obsession started two years ago (maybe three) when i received a $400 gift card to Nordstroms for Christmas from my boyfriend. I remembered being asked what i wanted and decided to take the chance and ask for the the gift card. I had begged my mom for year but she found my choice of make-up quite expensive and addicting

BUT regardless of what she thought i still managed to get what i wanted... My boyfriend's sister took me to the MAC counter in Nordstroms and helped me pick out a whole bunch of stuff--mostly shadows and lip glosses.

I got a:
Christian Dior Palette in 990--Tender Chic (mostly used it for an everyday look)
MACSweet Lust
Nylon
sumptuous Olive
Steamy
Honesty
Beauty Marked
Honey Lust
Cranberry
Embarked
Lip Products
MAC Lustreglass- Instant Gold
MAC Lustreglass- Flashmode
MAC Plushglass- Cushy White
MAC Lipglass- C-thru

MAC Eye Kohl
Phone Number
PowerSurge

This was the beginning of my collection and I don't regret spending so much money on it.

For a long period of time i stopped buying make-up and missed out on a lot of collections and colors that came out :( which deeply inside i regret!!! AHHHH but now i am back in business.

P.S. I am not a gold digger... It was simply a gift, thereon after, i have gotten everything myself with my hard work and earned money.
