Crap, sorry guys! I got busy on another project this afternoon that kept going and going and going, I just looked up to see that it’s 11, and I got, well, really, nothing. I have to say, working with graphics on a Mac can really suck you in.
My major new find that I’m playing with – yes, another new foundation. Well, how many are too many? The problem with foundations is you get them, they look good for a season or a while, then eventually something just doesn’t fit quite right anymore. Sorta like my relationships. This newest one has some promise. Koh Gen Do Moisture Foundation in 023. It’s a little tube of color, and when I put it on, it really does look like I’m photoshopping my face.
Now, what usually happens is the foundation goes on great, I’m loving it, thinking I’ve shaved a year or two off my 52-year-old face, and then one day I’m outside or in the car, glance in the rearview mirror, and I think my face looks like a mask. My face has really tiny pores, which is a blessing, but it also means that foundation of any type can sit on the top of my face and turn into, yes, that’s right, a mask..
But this one shows some promise – three days and still no signs of mask-like behavior. It gives this glowy tint to my face – my skin, but better. Sephora has it, as does Barney’s and others. I looked at the KGD website, and they seem to have little trial sets of their makeup for $20, which is awesome!! Then you don’t have to spend a fortune to find out if it works for you or not.
Of course I still love many of my other foundations – the Metier one is always in heavy rotation, despite it having been chewed on by Vinnie the Bulldog after one of his cat accomplices knocked it off the bathroom counter. This KGD thing just seems, I dunno, better coverage, but looks like less. Digging it. I like it well enough that I think I need to investigate some of their skin care, which gets pretty good raves with a quick clickety-clicking around the internets.
Fragrance? Got ahold of that new Comme des Garcons thing. Notes – aldehydes, hawthorn, lilac, flower oxides, industrial glue, brown scotch (packing) tape, musk and styrax. Freaky on the open with all that sparkly glue and tape, it smells like school, getting dangerously close to the mimeograph paper smell – no, not quite there, but I start yearning for it by sniffing this. It’s funky and completely Industrial CdG, never unwearable, which I think is a real gift, to be that freaky and weird and sorta hot. Long into the drydown, there’s a real beauty to it that’s not very freakish. It’s pretty great. I think I have about a sample I can squeeze out from the spray sample I have left. So drop a comment telling me about your foundation saga or how to cook a goose. Yes, we’re going all Bob Crachett this year and doing goose for Christmas. I know the fat thing is a problem and requires some special care, but I love goose! Help!
