My Gorgeous Friend’s Secret to Incredible Makeup!
Goddess Granny here! This is a “special edition” post because some info came my way that was simply WAY too good not to share with my peeps here at “Meg’s!”
You know how sometimes you just hear something that makes you go “HUH???” but deep down in your heart,you are secretly hoping it’s the truth because it will save you a ton of money, put you into that coverted inner-circle loop of cool-info, or give you access to something so special or unique that you will become the envy of your family and friends?
We all have the “gorgeous friend”: you know the one that wakes up looking so damn good that you want to slap her over coffee? The one who seemingly never gets a pimple,cellulite,or split-ends? THAT one…the one who also can usually afford because of the nauture of her gorgeousness, the very best in products and services that the world has to offer?
I spent sometime with my “that friend” recently and while I was nibbling at my tiny bites of sushi and she was wolfing down her honkin’ plate of pasta with breadsticks (because the b**** never gains an ounce no matter what!) I marveled at the way her luminous skin really DID seem to be without a single crease and how her perfectly-applied (after consultation with THE best makeup artists,no doubt!) makeup was still just that after 3 hours of shopping and lunch: perfect and without any wear and tear,no oil slicks,no creases,and no nothing but perfection.
She started giggling and leaned towards me with her perfect lips and blindingly-white teeth and whispered: “Monistat” and then started laughing like a mating hyena!!!
I didn’t think I heard her correctly and asked again what she was using on her skin as I figured it was some $350.00 an ounce foundation or a $480.00 daycream or something.
Monistat.The beautiful b**** is smearing a hybrid cream by a noted va jay-jay company on her face just to mock me.
Okay,hear me out because it’s SO worth it,you’re gonna’ love me: apparently while she was “doing a fashion show” for a local charity in Dallas over the Holidays,the pro-makeup artist had introduced her to a very non-typical use for the “Soothing Relief Chafing Powder Gel” that the Monistat company produces.Also known as “Soothing Care Chafing Relief Gel”,they are one in the same.
By all reports and by the looks of my friend’s amazing,long-lasting,and flawless makeup,this product multi-tasks as THE BEST skin-primer under makeup out there!!!
Those in the know and the pros have been using it for a while with great results and it can be a bit hard to find but I will hook you up in a minute. 🙂
After I called her names and kept begging her to tell me HONESTLY what it was,she finally pulled up this link on her PDA and I sat there reading while she accepted business cards from every man in the immediate area.
Monistat AS A PRIMER!!
Check it out but here are the basics of what you need to know about using this product as a prep for makeup:
Here’s a summary of what women reported they liked best about Monistat Chafing Relief Powder-Gel as a makeup primer (foundation base).
· Dries to a powder finish.
· Creates a matte surface so makeup glides on and stays on.
· Smooths out large pores, uneven skin tone and blemishes.
· Prevents breakouts.
· Allows for much smoother for eye shadow application on mature skin.
· Keeps make-up looking fresh by locking it in.
· Makes your face look youthful and dewy.
· Helps concealer glide on.
· Doesn’t feel greasy.
· Helps mineral make up last longer and look less cakey.
· Makeup stays on for 8+ hours, looking as good as when first applied.
· Excellent mattifier on top of any cream/lotion/sunscreen.
· Fragrance free.
· Smooths skin texture which reflects light and eliminates
shadows (so you look younger)

I dumped her fine-butt off and made a bee-line for the drugstore…none in stock…then another…nope…then the last one on my way home and asked the girl doing a re-stock of the shelves if they had any.She glanced at my crotch and suggested I try the “One Day” formula for immediate relief and I had to explain to her that I wasn’t doing the burnin’ walk of shame,I just wanted to try some of the powder-gel for chits and grins.All they had on hand was a “kit” and it included a tiny tube of the treasured stuff which was good enough for me,I just wanted to be able to try it out and would stalk it like Christian Bale if it proved to be the secret to my friend’s success!
The stuff is PURE GENIUS and not only is it THE best primer EVER to touch my skin,I swear it’s made the texture of it nicer as well!!!
You see it’s not that Monistat. Yes, it’s the same company but this powder-gel has NOTHING to do with the Monistat yeast infection products. (This product doesn’t treat yeast infections.)
Monistat’s Chafing Relief Powder-Gel is actually part of the Monistat Soothing Care Skin Care line and was developed to complement Monostat’s medical products.
For literally a fraction of what you’d spend on famous name base makeup primers, the Monistat Chafing Relief Powder-Gel does a better job because it contains a ton of dimethicone which is the key, active ingredient in the expensive primers.
Dimethicone creates a barrier for your skin which evens out your skin’s surface much the same way you use a base coat on your nails before applying color
All I will tell you from this point on is to check out the link above,read around a bit more if you like,and then go here to buy it for less than $7.00 a flippin’ tube!!!:
BUY IT HERE!!
So the next time YOU are the one sitting there with your “Gorgeous Friend”,you’ll have the upper-hand and your makeup will look a helluva’ lot better than hers does…gameover. 🙂
This is why I LOVE MEG’S...we get to share stuff like this and absolutely no one among us will fail to see the humor and/or the necessity of such a find!!!
Anyone else have a “non-traditional” use for a site-specific product? 🙂
