Most guys are really lucky…they aren’t expected to be made up in beautiful colors and looking great most of the time…lol…that being said, I personally don’t leave the house without my ‘face’. But, lately, as changes are taking place (age…yuck) I have noticed that my skin is just not behaving the way that it used to behave! Age has brought on veins over my eyes, pores that look huge, and even adult acne (yes, guys you are lucky!!). How in the world do I stop it…well, if you know me at all by now, I will try every darn thing that comes along until I find one that suits me perfectly. So, over the last 2 years, I have done just that….yep, 2 years of this trial and major error stuff!
Last month, a friend had a Facebook virtual event, you know those things that we all get invited to 100 times a week, and we ignore them. But, then the hostess starts tagging us to get us to come out and see what is going on….well, I am the friend that goes to them all. If I can get out of buying, great…but most of the time, I can’t…lol. I probably just said way too much to you all….I hear those invites clicking lol! So, I got interested in the product. Now, remember I said that for the past 2 years I have been trying products…well foundation is one of these products. I am in the public eye a lot either on Facebook live events with my clothing line, local events, in home events…you get the picture. With all the hot lights, the packing/unpacking, the Florida heat/humidity…need I say more? By the time the event starts, I am a hot mess….and my foundation is melting off of me. So, ladies, have you ever been there?? EEK! I feel like I am in the Insidious movie…and I look like it too. So I am the one that is running to the bathroom, to touch up because once again, my chosen brand, failed me…yes, epic fail! Ok, get to the point, MJ….right…I was starting to hear scary movie theme songs..lol.
So I will give you the ending before I give you the why…I did an one hour live event in the heat of bright lights, moving around, and all. At the end of the night, I stopped dead and realized that I didn’t touch up after set up and before the live. EEK! Panic struck, I watched the replay and wow…I looked ok. No more scary movie theme sounds in the background! So I cleaned up my area, and long story short, curled up in bed ready to critique my upcoming week agendas. I fell asleep, yes without taking off my makeup. When I woke up 6 hours later…I freaked because I just knew that my makeup was going to be everywhere…including on the clothing I still had on…lol. But, NOTHING! I ran to the bathroom and my makeup still looked good~what the what? Ok, I changed, washed my face and went to the computer to let that event hostess and representative know that I am in awe right now! I was met with many women saying how happy they were as well…wow, did I just find the mother load of makeup awesomeness? I did…and I have to share it with you all.
I will write more on the company later, but take a peek at this and believe me when I tell you that I am totally standing behind this brand 199%! Click here to see what I am using! I am also using a moisturizer that I think is helping with my problem skin and that is here (Amazon). I am also looking into a facial cleanser from Lush (I was actually referred to it in this same event), I am trying the Coal Face – I will report later on this one too! In the meantime, I have ordered the entire line from this company and I had to share with you…if you are looking for something that just may help you (and you have to read up on them too, they support different causes, very cool!), I can save you a lot of time. So, I am off to another event, but I had to bring y’all up to date on my shenanigans…lol. Hugs and TTYL! MJ
