A match made in makeup Heaven......and i set them up :)

Well ladies, the cats out of the bag!
It's time for me to introduce to you my secret weapon.......


This breakthrough formula with Olay Regenerist Serum and SPF 22 stays suspended over fine lines and wrinkles, unlike the leading anti-aging department store foundation that can gather in wrinkles and make skin look older. Clinically shown to provide significant improvement in skin condition in just four weeks. Plus, we're so sure you'll love Simply Ageless Foundation, that if you're not satisfied with the results, we'll refund your money.

  Whoa, this stuff is amazing!
I don't know what made me try this product, but I'm so glad I did.  I'm usually pretty snotty when it comes to foundations because I feel like it is the most important piece of makeup that you put on your face.  Foundation can make or break your whole look.......and if your not careful your face!  I think my original quest to try this makeup was purely based on the fact that it was marketed with the Olay name.  I'm a sucker for anything Olay, probably because they have never let me down :), tried and true.

 Anyways, on to the actual makeup.
The compact is clear and translucent purple.  The clear side contains the cream foundation with a white swirl of Olay Regenerist and screws on to the purple side that contains the sponge.  So, its more of a container than a compact.  No mirror :(.  The cream foundation is very light feeling on the skin, almost like a quench of hydration.  It glides over the skin to create a flawless finish instantly.  Every time I wear this foundation I get compliments on my skin.  I have even found myself picking this stuff up over my expensive Chanel and MUFE when I'm getting ready.  I just feel like it has the perfect combination of hydration without being oily and enough coverage to hide all my imperfections.  Can it be true, drugstore makeup that feels and preforms like department store brands? 

To make sure I wasn't crazy I tested it out on my sister, mom and mimi.  All three have completely different skin types.  It looked amazing on everyone!  It gave everyone the same youthful appearance and exceptional coverage it gave me.  I was sold and just had to tell everyone the good news :D.  I have suggested it to other friends and I haven't heard any complaints so far.  So let me know what you think!  For about $14.00 its worth trying to see if you too will fall in LOVE!

Tips:  When trying to pick a color I found it really hard to determine what shade to get because the Olay swirl lightens the color when applied.  Go to your nearest Ulta and try the testers first.  Also, setting this foundation with powder will help the staying power.  I use Laura Mercier mineral powder.

And now for the double whammy......

 Sephora Collection- I.T. Natural Foundation Brush
Why I.T.?  This pinnacle-quality array of Intelligent Tools harnesses Innovative Technology to create a makeup-artist-worthy brush range. Ultra-soft natural goat hair bristles create adjustable, precise, high-definition results, providing lighter coverage than synthetic brushes. The rounded, dense shape ensures sheer makeup results, favoring even, streak-free, seamless application. It evens the complexion, spreading and smoothing liquid or cream foundations on all areas of the face: eyelids, forehead, and sides of the nose for a natural look.


I love this brush! Not only does it feel fabulous on the skin, but it gives the most amazing coverage.  I haven't had any problems with the brush shedding so far.   Keeping my figures crossed :)  I hate using my fingers or a sponge for foundation.  I like to try to decrease messiness and foundation waste if all possible.  This brush has been God sent to me.  Also, the brush comes with a cool cap that protects the bristles when your traveling.  I wish every brush I owned had one of these!
