Primer added to my stash

The last three days have been tiresome as I've been waking up with an aching neck which later evolved into a headache. I hate days like these, but they're all too familiar to me. Silly as it may sound it really helps having Theo around, I find it really difficult to resist smiling when he shoves his nose into my ear and demands to be cuddled with. As a result of the pain I haven't been up to much lately, apart from sitting online on Facebook playing these idiotic little games like Happy Pets and Farmville, and organizing a little. I haven't gotten around to starting on my palettes yet, but soon.

My computer desk was starting getting clogged up with all kinds of makeup which I'm planning try out and possibly write a review about, so I decided to hijack the small desktop "dresser" Øyvind was going to use for important papers, letters and bills. It's from IKEA and has three drawers big enough to fit an A4 sheet of paper. A perfect little "dresser" to keep the makeup I use most frequently close at hand, and organized at the same time. At least my computer desk is a lot more tidy now, and I know exactly where my things are when I need them. I spent some time looking for my M·A·C Mineralized Skinfinish in Medium until I remembered that I actually never bought it myself, and that mine was Medium Dark - which I already had in my hand.

I've also finally gotten around to getting my hands on a primer, a face or foundation primer, and this time I went for a product from GOSH. It's called Velvet Touch Foundation Primer, and it looks very promising. Now I just need my body to shape up a bit, and my eagerness and enthusiasm to return, so I can start playing with my "toys" again. I had a go with my Make Up For Ever HD Foundation the other day, but I didn't like it at all. I'm possibly the only human being on Earth disliking this foundation. Mine is in the color 120 "Soft Sands", and it's a good match for my winter skin tone - during summer I'd have to go darker. Now, I didn't use any primer when I tried this foundation, so I'm going to give it one more chance with a primer underneath to see if there's any difference at all. There's a good chance that I'll have to ship it off to England for Ingrid instead, there's no use in throwing it away - or leaving it unused in a drawer somewhere.

I'll get back to you with my final verdict!

  1. Looking forward to the review. I have been wanting that primer for some time now, but haven’t decided whether it is worth buying or not. Smile

  2. Licota: thank you, I’ll try to have it done soon. I’m usually not a fan of GOSH products, but I figured it was OK to try. If it doesn’t fix my problem with the foundation, it’s useless to me anyway. Smile I was thinking about getting Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer, but I’ll reconsider it if a primer is the key.

  3. Oooooh, jeg venter i spenning! Jeg håper jo for din skyld at du liker den altså!

  4. Ingrid: mitt første forsøk virket veldig bra. Veldig lett og myk, men jeg innså etter noen timer at jeg burde lagt f.eks. M·A·C Mineralized Skinfinish over (jeg lette som en gal etter “Natural” helt til jeg husket at jeg aldri har kjøpt den, men “Natural Dark” som er bittelitt mørkere), eller kanskje bare M·A·C Blot Powder, så det blir mitt neste prøveprosjekt. So far so good!
