Hello, just one quick post here. Everything turned out ok with the computer, after all. We were able to fix it at a reasonable cost, so that' s really good.
The reason for this post is to give my review on my new makeup. Since December, I have been wearing mineral makeup and was out of my Bare Minerals and ready to try something else. A version by Maybelline was useless, it felt like it had sand in it and it didn't work for me at all.
I decided to go to Merle Norman, and see what was new and I am so glad that I did. Their mineral line is wonderful. I am really happy with it. The foundation is priced the same as Bare Minerals but the size is 14 grams versus 2 grams. Yes, I said 14 vs 2. Their primer was twice as large as Bare Minerals for about the same cost. Of course, I already had the brushes needed for this type makeup, so I saved some money there.
I have always been crazy about makeup and the passage of time certainly hasn't changed that. I just have to be more conscious of how I apply my products now. Less is best for me at this stage in the game, which I am not used to. Also included with my purchases, was a freebie that has a wonderful eye shadow called Crystal Eyes, in the color Gilty Pleasure. It is a glimmery shade that gives lots of reflection but does not look like glitter or the frosted eye shadows of days gone by. I like it.
So my advice is this. Don't waste your money on drug store versions of mineral makeup. Go to Merle Norman if you can. You get more for your money and the quality of the product equals or exceeds Bare Minerals. I think you will be glad you did.
