Current favorite foundation

I want to give this little guy a special shout out:

IsaDora Cover Up Foundation & Concealer

The IsaDora Cover Up Foundation & Concealer.

I’ve had it for a while, and we weren’t exactly off to a flying start. It wasn’t mixing well with any of my primers, liked to stick to dry patches—or I dunno, create them all by itself it sometimes seemed like? And! Towards the end of the day, enhance any crease it could get its grubby little hands on.

Its only redeeming qualities was it had a great cover and the shade is not yellow—which is a pet peeve of mine, cannot stand any face color product leaning towards yellow.

But now, we’re getting on like a house on fire.

Is it just me or do some makeup age really well? I do this with mascaras too, start using them, think they’re a bit meh so I forget about them for weeks, and then start using them again and the formula is somehow better?

Seems to be the case here.

Currently, I have none of the problems listed above. NONE. In addition to which, cover: still great. It’s an extremely useful product if you’re interested in obscuring your eyebrows just a little bit—which I am, in case that has been unclear. Don’t you just love any time when you’re happy with what you’ve got? I like to imagine capitalism weeping about my absolute and unconditional love for what most people would call my poor over-tweezed eyebrows. Because that just makes me feel even better about it. I am sorry, I need no special products, I love my brows just the way they are, thank you very much. Dab of foundation is a bonus, not a necessity.

Still.

I am so in love with this foundation right now. And that is probably the main reason I will never achieve minimalism; things just make me so damned happy sometimes. (Dammit, capitalism wins again!)

Not that any of this means that I’m not looking forward to trying out my brand new Lumene matte foundation in a shade lighter than light ivory— the shade is called ultra light, will it be like liquid highlighter I wonder?? I am always so keen on shades that manage to be v. v. pale, but somehow not white.

You heard me. Keen.

That’s it, buh bye!
