My latest number one favorite is Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse foundation, in Porcelain/Ivory. I'd been using an Avon BB cream and I was happy with it until I stopped by the in-store Sephora at JC Penney. There I sampled a creamy full-coverage foundation and I was impressed by the difference in my skin tone. I don't remember the brand, but it was spendy.
So, on my next trip to the drugstore I picked up this makeup:
|It comes in nine shades and sells for about $8. Good value!|
I've worn it for a week now, and I love the finish. It is matte but not dry or cakey. It corrects for my pink undertones. It lasts through the workday with no touch-ups. It slides on nicely over my Olay moisturizer/sunscreen. And it's $50 less than my previous full-coverage foundation, hello.
I do combine the foundation with a pricey Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit (recommended by several of you here). So I have a high-low face.
Speaking of faces, Renee Zellweger has been getting a lot of press for her "new" face. Apparently, she's had some face-changing procedures. I cannot abide all the criticism of her choice.
Women in the public eye are derided if they age "naturally" and reviled if they fall for the latest in plastic surgeries. It's a no-win, and what has to change is our view of midlife women. Salon writer Mary Elizabeth Williams said it better than I could in this article:
I am eternally dismayed at a culture that obsesses so profoundly on bikini bodies and lineless countenances that some really strange results continue to happen to people who try to hang on to what they once were.
Love your face today, and stay fabulous,
