I personally just find it wicked awesome that Carmindy says “Temptalia readers.”

    oh man! I am going to hit Nordstrom or Neiman Marcus for La Prairie! I am using their satin foundation and love it. Tried the Rose Illusion primer but want to try a few more products. Thanks Christine! :) More brands need to do this!!

    I was surprised to find Bobbi Brown’s Natural Finish Foundation in our counters here in Manila. We’re usually ages late with product launches. I really like this foundation. I was looking for a foundation that had the finish of their Skin Foundation, but with better coverage and that was transfer-resistant. This is it! Plus it handles pretty well with my combination-oily skin.
