It all started a few years back when MAC did the unthinkable, they discontinued my FAVORITE foundation. Oh they told me that mixing the Strobe Creme with another liquid foundation would give me the same result, but that was just a dirty lie.
I tried making due with the other MAC liquid foundations without ever finding one that I loved as much as the Hypereal. First the color was wrong, its finish wasn't the same and it wasn't my foundation that I came to know and love.
About a year ago I found the wonder that is Bare Minerals. It took me a little to adjust to using just powder, but once I did I fell in love. She never sat in my wrinkles, she had a beautiful finish and she lasted all day! Best part was the lack of little black makeup brush hairs that my liquid had left behind. Was this it, my new makeup home? It really felt to good to be true and it was.
The makeup gods conspired against me, once more. As soon as I would start to sweat the Bare Minerals would cause my face to itch. Apparently this is due to a nasty little component called Ismuth Oxychloride
