Monday Edition: My Favorite Things

Wow! This Monday brings an end to a really great weekend. My weekend was filled with reuniting with old friends. It was absolutely wonderful! Some of my reunions were planned and others were just a surprise. I am so thankful for my friends-old and new!

Another thing I am very thankful for is a little item I picked up during my very first trip to the Make-Up Holy Land (Sephora). I purchased the Photo Finish Foundation Primer by Smashbox. I originally saw this product in my How Not to Look Old book, and I thought I would try it! I have used it for about a week now! It is really great! It does everything it claims. I love how smooth my make-up goes on and how soft my skin feels after applying it! Below is what the Sephora web-site had to say about it!

Photo Finish Foundation Primer

What it is:

Smashbox makeup artists use this product to create a perfect canvas for foundation application.

What it is formulated to do:

The silky blend of vitamins and antioxidants smoothes and perfects skin, while the unique formula helps to inhibit the destruction of collagen, and fills in fine lines and pores for a flawless finish.

What else you need to know:

Use after moisturizer and before foundation for complexion perfection. This skin-soothing blend of antioxidants, which can be worn alone or under foundation, works overtime to fill in fine lines and even out skin texture.

Oooo. I use something very similar from Prescriptives. Maybe I should switch it up and give this a try. How much did it cost?? Thanks for sharing. I love hearing about new products!!

I've always wanted to get it since I've seen it on InStyle and Allure.
Now I'll have to get it!

The size I bought was $36. It is the size shown in the picture. I have a feeling it is going to last me a while. One tiny squirt pretty much covers my whole face.
