- Wedding: September 2011
I have a lot of reddish undertones (nose and chin), blemishes, etc. and have fair skin. I’ve always needed a good-coverage foundation but since I’m fair it’s hard to find one that works well.
The other day I did a makeup trial with what I thought would be my wedding day foundation (dream matte mousse)….I hated it in photos and realized it didn’t provide the right coverage I needed. I decided I needed to go for the big guns….so I went to Sephora.
However, I walked in, and NOT ONE PERSON offered to help me. One walked by and said, “Are you doing okay?” and I said “Well, I’m not really sure…” and she WALKED AWAY! They weren’t even that busy.
So I left, decided to check out Merle Norman although I have never shopped there. The woman there was WONDERFUL and helped me out right away, gave me samples of some foundation and helped me find my shade…like I expected at Sephora.
I got the Luxivia Lasting Foundation for $30 (would have paid $40+ for MUFE or some other brand at Sephora). I’ve been wearing it for three days now and I love it! It totally stays on and provides great coverage. It does not look cakey on my skin.
Just thought I’d share!
