FOTD: Let's Go Testing!

This post really serves two purposes: it shows a recent Face of the Day and is a sneak peak at some of the items you'll be seeing on this blog over the next few weeks. Casual weekends are for testing in my world, and I went for a colorful look.  For the first time in a very long time, this is actually current- this is what I wore and used today!

  1. Interested to read re Cliniques Redness Solution Primer as I haven't seen anything about it and certainly need help in that area. Clinique isn't a brand I look at much these days although I do love their bottom lash mascara. I'm also testing out Hourglass - two of the blushes and the three powder palette with very mixed results - but I'll say no more atm!! Susan, London

  2. I've been testing it for a couple of weeks and will be for a bit longer now that the weather is starting to heat up (the real test of primers, in my opinion). Clinique was the brand that I, like many others, started with as a very young teen. I have a few products that I still use (deoderant, 7-day scrub cream), and their generous GWPs lure me into trying other items a few times a year.
