Hello sweet Gorgeous!
Arizona goes back to school on August 10th-that is 8 short days away!
Already this weekend I was back to school shopping with Mancub and the mall was packed!
I just tried this powder by Sally Hansen and notice the fine print where it says 'inspired by CARMINDY' ( love her!) This line of products is paraben free-meaning safer for you, your skin and your beauty routine. You can find this product line at CVS pharmacies or online at drugstore.com and
I have been testing the powder for the past few days in the 111 degree weather of Arizona.
I like the light, fine milled texture of the powder. I'm wearing the Natural color. I was intrigued by the packaging and in my opinion-it's just that-intriguing. I did use the sponge applicator-in fact the very appearance of the sponge makes me break out laughing at memories of Elaine in the Seinfeld episode where in a conversation with Jerry she says the line 'he's not spongeworthy'. Great.
The sponge is awkward to apply-so just open, remove the safety sealing sticker, then either tap out into the lid or onto your makeup matte enough powder to load onto either a stipling brush or large powder brush for application. If you like the sponge applied effect on the skin, simply use a cosmetic square or round sponge that you get from the applicator aisle.
I like wearing the powder on my bare skin-for toning down shine. I also have set my foundations with it-and it gives a nice light finish. I wore the Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Truly Translucent powder over: liquid foundation, cream foundation and mineral foundation and it gave a nice finish.
So for the 2011 Back to School beauty trend- I say yes to this powder. Keep it in your locker, makeup case at home or gym bag for after school practice/study/work. Enjoy!
