It has been a little slow around here, but this is basically what I’ve been up to:
As I was getting ready to leave the house this morning, my plans got canceled. I had already gotten a good part of my makeup done so I figure I would snap a shot before taking everything off again. On my lips are Origins lipstick in Sugared Peach and NARS lipgloss in Dolce Vita (once again). I am still in the process of trying to use up my MAC Studio Mist Foundation that has been discontinued since who-knows-when. My favorite Revlon Colorstay eyeliner is almost out so I’ll probably pick one up tomorrow. Today was a fair day to stay in even though the makeup was kind of wasted. But what can one do on days like these?
Today, I received the quick fix sticks that Solutions That Stick sent to me for consideration. It is a pack of double sided adhesive to fix up broken, ripped, slipping, bursting clothes. I am actually using one of the sticks on my (cotton) shirt today. I am liking it a lot more than I had anticipated. It isn’t just double sided tape, after all. It sticks to your clothes firmly without actually being sticky. I will give it a little more time before doing a thorough review though. I have to see how well it will adhere to different fabrics before deciding whether it’s a hit or miss.
The face primer I am currently using is Skin Prep FX. I really wanted to like this product. I really did. I was expecting to love it after reading so many positive reviews on it. As of now, this primer is not cutting it. I have only used it twice or thrice, so I won’t judge prematurely. Just two days ago, though, I used it under my Bare Minerals foundation and finishing veil and saw no difference at all. My foundation didn’t last longer or anything of that sort. I don’t have oily skin, but noticed a bit of shine on my t-zone area that day. I don’t know if it was the primer or just my skin. And on a more shallow sense, I don’t like the look of the primer, which reminds me of oil. It’s without oil, I know, but it just looks it. Anyway, I will try to give this primer a fairer and more thorough review in a week or so.
Have you tried the Skin Prep FX? Or any primer you especially like/dislike?
