I know what you mean face suddenly looks all wrong!

largeginandtonic Fri 06-Nov-09 19:45:03

Suddenly i feel very concious of my face.

I can see your point though, i am a totally different colour in the winter.

I can't believe it never occured to me.

Sometimes MN adds to my workload.

I did see a gorgeous compact thing on the Guerlain counter in John Lewis last night.

cornsilkwearscorsets Fri 06-Nov-09 19:47:48

I don't know what it's meant to do but it looks very pretty and shiny.

InterruptingKid Fri 06-Nov-09 19:49:11

my hair dresser has a window that shows everything.
i looked like a dappled tangerine.
i went home, changed founadtion to thicker paler one ( from a moisturising balm one) and normal face age is restored.

noddyholder Fri 06-Nov-09 19:52:40

yep tangoed not a good look in november and the pale more covered look is suddenly flattering.Come april it starts to look wrinkly and chalky and on it goes...........

ilove Fri 06-Nov-09 19:54:28

£99 for something that will look like mud after the first time you use it and smudge all the colours???


InterruptingKid Fri 06-Nov-09 19:54:41

yes i dont know How i let it slip

isnt there a national hooter or somehting?

cornsilkwearscorsets Fri 06-Nov-09 19:59:42

I'm not buying it. (Probably.) It looked very pretty though.

largeginandtonic Sat 07-Nov-09 07:58:09

Cornsilk that is so pretty!

I want one. I would be afraid to use it though.

winter foundation biscuit (Where did the eyes go??)

Buy it Cornsilk, I'm intrigued as to what happens to the colours after you put it on the first time. Do you get a multicoloured dappled look all over your face too?

Do people really wear foundation everyday? I only wear it if I'm going out to a dooooooo.

madmissy Sat 07-Nov-09 09:41:54

i have do i just can't look right otherwise...

i look uneven patchy and ill well i think i do anyhow!

LaurieScaryCake Sat 07-Nov-09 09:46:49

Well, I have just had my delivery from Brand Alley with 4 Stila foundations in it (3 the same) and one totally amazing one called "Illuminating liquid foundation"

it's like a cross between Vitalumiere and Chanel liquid one in a bottle (which I mix anyway to get the perfect consistency)

very happy and glad to switch to winter foundation after a crappy month using Bare Minerals spf15 one - I hated it but it cost 20 odd quid so thought I'd better give it a go - and it just ok when i took a cotton ball to it and dabbed most of it off.

I'm going to flog the other half of it on ebay along with a load of bare minerals eyeshadows I don't like.

InterruptingKid Sat 07-Nov-09 09:51:11

YOU SEE! you have to change formula and colour in winter .
eys every day.

madmissy Sat 07-Nov-09 10:00:15

see i like a good base with a nice blusher now like a fresher look in winter-spring then out come the tango kit grin

Blimey, you lot must have a lot of time on your hands, or get up VERY early grin

So what do you wear in the height of summer? Foundation or tinted spf 15 moisturiser?

Do young'uns wear foundation every day or is it more a mature approach do you reckon? wink

madmissy Sat 07-Nov-09 10:48:18

i am almost 25 and always wear grin

InterruptingKid Sat 07-Nov-09 14:21:03

have laways always worn
