Meg here! Happy Monday! I know, I was just trying to be upbeat. When girlfriends come to visit me at my house they don’t even bring a makeup bag. Usually they walk into my bathroom and scream out “OMG, it’s like a flipping Sephora in here!” Why bring anything when you can try the latest and greatest at my house and usually leave with a few partying gifts?
Realizing that this is a rare happenstance, I pack my cosmetics case to the brim when travelling. I have every potion, every creme, every…Wait. No, I know I put it in here. Maybe it’s under this brush..No, wait my purse? FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! I forgot blush! What kind of makeup maven forgets her blush? Since, we had a few Drugstore Deal issues on Thursday, I’ll be bringing you my DD on Monday.
I am a firm believer in cream blush, it just makes a nice “glow” like when you were little and running around outside. It blends and you can get very spot specific. I also use bronzer all over my face. I disregard the rules for that one. I take a big, fat brush and do a quick sweep for an all over golden hue. Then I grab my trusty creme blush to blend on the apples of my cheeks and voila! I look among the living!
I was at my sister’s house. She is far from a sephora and department store! Off to trusty Walgreens for my new blush.
I settled (for $5.99) on Maybelline’sDream Mousse Blush shade #25 ROSE PETAL. It’s $5.99 so I figured, eh, we’ll see. I am so happy I forgot my other, much pricier creme blush at home. Here’s the skivvy, it is whipped like mousse, you need a foundation brush to apply this or else it’s going to get all under your nails and make a mess. It blends very well, it luminous and slighty sheer with pink undertones but with enough color to look spry!
So don’t cry for me Argentina! Left the pricey stuff at home and let’s all believe in a higher power (I’m sure he has nothing else to do but worry about my blush issues) and say it all happened as part of the greater, frugal plan!
Can I get a Wohoo on Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush?
