Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer
This one really threw me for a loop! I got this as a free sample the last time I went to Sephora (gotta stock up on my Sephora foam cleanser!)-- and I'm so glad I've finally gotten to try a foundation primer! The whole concept of a foundation primer sounds sort of backwards-- if it's a FOUNDATION, why do you need something before that? But now, my cheapie Revlon Color Stay foundation is stellar and even better. Not to say my foundation was bad... but the primer makes it actually look like skin, rather than just pigment. 36$ for 1oz-- damn. But after seeing the difference it makes, it's totally justifiable!
Essie "Mojito Madness" Nail Lacquer
What can I say about this green? It's delicious and such a luscious green! The name makes me laugh because it doesn't remind me of Mojitos at all. I think freshly mowed lawns and jade; I can almost smell summer time when I look at this on my finger tips! The formula itself is everything I adore about Essie- fast drying and thin; it goes opaque in two coats. The only thing I feel that can be improved on is if Essie rocked the wide brush that OPI uses... Still though, love this color, love the summer feel it gives, and actually look forward to wearing it. With fall and winter approaching, it might be a little bit out of place, but ya.
