My Sephora loot arrived yesterday, unfortunately the bareMinerals foundation did not work for my menopausal skin. Most my adult life I have had very oily skin with enlarged pores and would load up products that were mattifying and pore reducing. My skin has changed and I'm just becoming aware of how dry it has become. Sounds silly, that I wouldn't have noticed this right away but I didn't, it's only going through this process of looking for new skin care and makeup that I have become fully aware of my skin's current state.
So, I'm going to have to retrain my brain to adjust to these changes and I'm thinking that I will try a foundation for normal to dry skin and one that gives good coverage for my "poor textured skin."
I am using Paula's Choice as my guide, so far she has been right on with the reviews.
It appears that Revlon has foundations that exceed many of those found in department stores, check out this link where the "best" foundations have been ranked, I've sorted them by price.
I'll update as I try them in hopes of finding one to match my pale skin and cover well...wish me luck?
On another note, check out the loot of samples I received from Sephora, one of the perks being a "Beauty Insider."
I'm not sure how I stumbled upon Paula's Choice but I do, vaguely remember reading a book years ago about cosmetic ingredients, etc. I'm so glad that I stumbled upon her site as the information is incredible.
You may remember a few posts ago I ordered some new cosmetics & skin care. Well, the bad news is that the Paula's Choice review does not give a glowing report of the products I ordered.
I'm hoping that her site and information is accurate and honest because I decided to order some of her own skin care line, at worse, I won't like it, in which case I can return it for full refund.
