When reviewers ask what would you be if you weren’t a writer, I always say I wish I could be like a makeup artist and learn to really do makeup well and correctly. I love product. I love new product even more. But for some reason, I haven’t bought makeup in a really long time. Which doesn’t mean I don’t own makeup. I’m overloaded with products. But I reached a point where I was bored with what was in my drawers, and what I did put on, I almost couldn’t notice it anymore because I’ve had it so long and am so used to wearing it. I have all the Laura Mercier eye shadow, lipstick, blush, etc. I need. Same with Mac. Same with Clinique.
I went to the mall with hubby yesterday, and he’s a mad mall rusher. Go in, get what you need, get out. Still, I was determined to fit in finding new stuff. I found a makeup artist in Nordstroms, explained my dilemma and she suggested a new to me (not new to anyone else) line, SMASHBOX. I’ve heard of it, of course, but never tried it. Well, I came home with 2 eye shadow trios, 2 liners, lipstick and gloss, and blush. For now, I still have my Laura Mercier foundation. Can’t wait to try it all tomorrow. I’ll have to let you know how it goes.
What’s your favorite makeup brand/product?
