The Things I Find...

Wet n Wild has new product, I say new though I don’t know if it is actually new, I’ve never seen it before and I am constantly browsing through the shelves in the make up section for new cool things. Anyway, it’s called intuitive blend shade adjusting foundation + primer and I LOVE it. Stumbled across the night before my birthday while I was picking up the Revlon primer I had been using, wasn’t really happy with it but it works most of the time. I was thrilled!
            I know you may be thinking…really wet n wild? But this stuff is awesome and revolutionary. It’s a clear primer with tiny beads that burst against the skin to produce the color. Looks super strange coming from the tube, but it goes on smoothly and eliminates the extra step of putting primer on, which I hate because I can never find a primer I love.
            It feels really light on the skin, I barely feel like I have make up on and it is super fast. This morning I put my full face on in under 10 minutes, which is like some kind of record because usually it takes me that long just to get my foundation mixed and primer on. TIME SAVER!
            Another plus, I haven’t broken out yet and I’ve worn the stuff for at least eight hours all three days I have put it on. Recently my make up has been causing me to break out, I think it’s my primer because all my brushes are cleaned before each use, but it could be that it’s time for new powder even though I don’t think mine is more than 3 months old…but I digress.
             While I cannot attest to the shade adjusting aspect of the foundation; I think I may have gotten the wrong shade, apparently Chelsea forgot it was summer and she was a bit tanner than normal, it still works very well.
            Downside, while it is a very good base it doesn’t produce much color at all. I’m not sure if it’s because the shade I got is just a bit light for my skin or if I am just crazy. I think it is meant to be a minimal coverage foundation, which is great for me because most days my skin doesn’t really need much work just a helping hand in evening every thing out. So if you are looking for a light coverage foundation just go try this stuff.
            This foundation primer mixture only cost 5 dollars, which is much less than the other primers I have ever gotten, even from drug store brands. I intend to keep using it and getting a darker shade so I can let you guys know how that goes. Thanks for your time! Have a great day and stay beautiful!
