Pixie Dust

I think I love my new Sugarpill shadows.  I just got done taking swatch photos, and trying to match up obvious duplicates with some of my other colors, and that led to this particular color combination.  Sadly, I didn’t get great pictures.  I’m testing a new foundation, and I swear it has aged my skin ten years.  All of a sudden, my skin looks dull, dry, pocked and oddly textured.  You would expect that of a too dry/heavy matte foundation.  But the formula is actually supposed to be quite dewy, which should have the opposite effect!

    I’m digging the eyeshadow combination, it’s pleasantly Spring-like. It’s really a bummer that the foundation didn’t work out, though. It doesn’t make much sense that a dewy formula would work that way. Could it be a skin sensitivity?

      Honestly, I doubt it. There’s just a few types of foundation formula’s that do that to me. I had the SAME reaction to MAC Pro Longwear foundation. I think the formula is meant to dry down and set faster, and wear longer…. and whatever ingredients have that effect are just too much for my skin. My skin is only SLIGHTLY on the oily side, and every other allergic reaction or sensitivity I’ve had happens in the form of redness, swelling, bumps or zits…. This had NONE of that. It just made my skin look dry, and stiffened it to where it looked like I had significant lines and creases in my face.

        Dry/creasing: ick. It’s weird that something that, in theory, should work on dry skin does the opposite of what it’s supposed to.
