Switching allegiance.

I have been using Revlon Colourstay Foundation (Buff) for the last eighteen years. In fact, I can clearly remember the day it came on to the market...we became friends instantly and have never been apart since.

Over the last few months, as much as I love my Revlon Colourstay...I have been considering looking at other options. This is not the first time...I have ventured across too the other beauty counters before...but I always go back to my favourite.

On Saturday, I decided to do it properly, and consulted with the experts...and I walked away with this...
...and it did cost me the equivalent to a small countries GDP...but hey, according to the million of fashion mags I have read, the one beauty product you should not mess around with is foundation. So, I am giving Smashbox a go. I have used their Primer before...and it was divine.

So I suppose only time will tell...either I have officially moved allegiances...or I will be making friends again with my old faithful.

And you guys...do you any of you use Smashbox? What is your favourite? Should I be sticking with what I know?

I use the smashbox bronzer and I really do love it. For foundation I find that Mac makes the perfect shade for my skin. Let me know how it goes. I like to try new suff every now and then.

Preetika...my next stop is in fact the Mac counter (if this doesnt work out)...

I've never needed foundation and when I see the prices at the make-up counter I really do thank my lucky stars :)
My hair on the other hand...it's costing me a fortune with all the new grey hairs that are sprouting every day!

So jealous Fiona...would do love to be able to never wear foundation...

I am blessed with a great complexion so I hardly ever wear foundation, but on the rare occasion that I do I am a die-hard Mac girl, it's flawless - the trick is to apply it with their brush and not a sponge!

PS: I picked up a little something that I thought you would enjoy when I was in States over Christmas, please will you give me your postal addy so that I can get my ass in gear and send it to you :o) xxx

i've never tried smashbox but i've heard good things about it and mac. i use mineral make-up (sheer cover and bare escentuals) and i love it. i have very sensitive skin and don't use a lot of make up so it works good for my skin. i love that i can vary the coverage (light for every day or kinda heavy if its a fancy event).
