I am kind of a makeup junkie. But more with trvial things, like lip colors and eyeshadows. Not with my every day tried and true products. Those I have been using for years. But sometimes I get a little curious and want to change things up. Its February and my skin is probably the palest it is going to be. I am trying to emprace the pale is pretty thing, but I still feel like I need a little pick me up. Even my daily application of Clarins self tanning gel doesn’t seem to be making the cut.
No, this is not where I confess to you that I am going to go fry my ovaries (as our mama calls it) in a tanning bed in order to feel better about my pasty white complexion. Instead I might just make a dive and purchase the NARS brand spanking new tinted moisturizer. Seeing as the stuff literally just came out in the past few weeks, I am guessing none of you can shout its praises and make me feel better about buying it? I have a good feeling about it as I am a NARS addict and swear by half of their products. As do my mom, Molly, and our grandmother – but I still get nervous about dropping nearly $50 on a daily use product unless I love it.
What about you guys? Any favorite tinted moisturizers? I used to use Stila sheer color – loved it but felt like I needed a change. Stila now also makes an illuminating moisturizer as does Laura Mercier. My friend Kelly uses Bobbi Brown’s version and loves it. I’ve tried it and it definitely gives you that glowy feeling and smells amazing. Wishing I could just buy mini bottles of each one of these and decide which one is my favorite and then make the big purchase for the full size. Now that would be ideal.
