OK, So here's a short version of my story:
I have been a Mary Kay rep for years. I use the word "rep" very loosley since I don't ever host parties, I don't promote myself AND I rarely take orders. I just order my product at a discount. Well times are tough my friends so I decided that I couldn't afford Mary Kay anymore. So I quit placing orders and started buying over the counter stuff.
I kept switching product because I couldn't find a good FULL COVERAGE FOUNDATION. I complained about this to anybody that would listen and a few offered suggestions.
One of them being MAC makeup. But buying MAC defeats my purpose because HELLOOOO I quit using Mary Kay because I couldn't afford it. BUT my BFF's swear by it and say it's BETTER than Mary Kay so I finally decided to take the plunge. While in Santa Barbara recently I walked into the MAC store, the makeup artist (and I use that term loosley because she matched me up with ORANGE based foundation.) picked my colors for me and I bought them.
It's not full coverage and I felt like the powder is really blotchy. Caked-on-feeling. I used it a few days and I hated it. So I went back to the L'Oreal I was using before. Which I am also not happy with because it's NOT full coverage.
ok so at dinner with my honeyboo the convo goes a little something like this:
HIM: babes, I don't like your new makeup. It makes your skin look all blotchy.
ME: Me either. But I'm NOT USING MY NEW MAKEUP. And my blotchy skin is all me. (which is why I need full coverage foundation)
*chirp.. chirp... it got so quiet after that you hear crickets... hahahahaha.. nice try in trying to make me feel better?
So... ummm... yeah? LOL I'm breaking down and placing a Mary Kay order. It's what works for my skin so why keep wasting money on what doesn't work?
Oh also, since giving up my Mary Kay makeup I have developed sun spots on my face. Not sure if it's correlated or coincidence? But does anybody know of any product that WORKS to remove sun/age spots?
