Friday Fabulous Find

I've made it known in past posts that I am a health & beauty junkie. Getting samples of the newest body lotion,face cream,lip gloss etc. gets me weak in the knees. What you don't know is that I'm a bit of a foundation snob. I would only use the high-end department store brands. After all being that it was $35.00 for a bottle it had to be the best right?
I recently ran out of my foundation but being that I'm trying to cut out all un-necessary spending I figured I would go back to trying the drug store brands-something I hadn't done in about 15 years.I'm so glad I did.
The foundation I purchased was Covergirl Simply Ageless Anti-Aging Foundation & it was only $11.99
I have never been good at color-matching so I figured I would try the color Ellen Degeneres wears in her ads as I have the same coloring she does. The color is Classic Ivory and it's a perfect match.
The foundation has swirls of Olay Regenerist Serum in it which blends with the makeup when you apply it.
The first day I wore it I wasn't too thrilled. I had done my morning  skin routine: wash,apply serum,moisturizer,primer then makeup. By midday the foundation was sliding off my face.Not too pretty.
The next day I was running late so all I did was wash and makeup. The was the trick- the foundation looked great all day! I didn't need the extra skin prep. That night I was sitting across from my friend Lisa in a school cafeteria which does not have the most flattering light and she commented on how nice my skin looked. This was 12 hours after I put on the make-up with not one touch all day.
The foundation has great coverage without having a thick overdone appearance. It doesn't settle in my pores or the pesky little lines either.
I've been wearing it for about 2 weeks now and my skin actually looks and feels better.
Buh-bye department store overpriced makeup I'm happily going back to the drug store!
