So, I gave Lumiere a better try. I think that last night I got a little carried away and applied it like I do Meow Purrrfect Puss, with a heavy hand. This morning I did my usual routine (moisturize, silica, concealer and foundation) and applied it with a lighter touch. The result was reallt smooth coverage and no “masky” feel. I find this foundation a bit more matte than EDM original glo, but goes on more “moisturizy”.
I had a lot of fun last night re-trying all of my foundation samples, every time I get a new foundation in the mail I go swatch crazy and put just about evey half-decent-match-colours on my face in little patches on my face. my poor BF then gets recruited to pick the best match.
Here is a typical exchange:
“Which one matches best”
“I don’t know, where are they?”
I point to my jawline.
“Ok, that one”
“Now look in natural light, which one now?”
“Maybe this, one” He looks at me to see my reaction “Well…maybe this one.” then looks around me at the computer, I guess he considered that an acceptable answer.
“Your not taking this seriously, are you looking at my neck or my face?”
“Your face” he guages my reaction “….. well your neck….ok both”
Are you comparing it to my overtones or undertones?!?”
“what are those?”
“UUGGHH!” I stomp away, and pick my favourite one anyways.
(so far it’s still Frisky Sphynx, boy am I ever hoping that Flawless Feline is my HG formulation).
Have I mentioned how much I love Cheval by Taylor Made? It’s makes such a great wet liner! It’s a dark browny plumy colour and it’s matte and opaque. I have to get myself a full sized version of this, since I’m pretty sure that I won’t be able to dupe this without a grinder.
