Dress Dare 2011 progress

Day 4 (May the fourth be with you... if I hear that one more time I'll puke). Every day I've worn a dress. I've been lucky with the weather, not too hot and not too cold. I like wearing a dress because it's just so easy to slip on; no worrying about coordinating tops and bottoms. I don't feel particularly feminine or modest. In fact it seems to be working against any sense of humility, as in "Hey! I look pretty dang good!" But, I'll keep plugging away.

About 15 years ago, my mother suggested I might suffer from ADD. I didn't think much of it. Recently, during a psych eval ordered by the court due to my custody battle for my daughter, the doctor asked me "has anyone mentioned you might have ADHD?" I was a little taken aback. So, the interwebs being all knowing I took this little test and these were my results:

My Review of Complexion Perfection

Originally submitted at

Create a balanced and radiant complexion that is beautiful and healthy. The lightweight formula evens out the skin tone and absorbs excess oil. The sheer formula brightens, mattes and neutralizes the skin. The colors are meant to be blended together as the Blue neutralizes orange, the Green neutr...

I saw this the other day at a local retailer and was thrilled to see it, as I was planning to buy online (instant gratification anyone?). I first used it over tinted moisturizer and was very pleased at the results: completely controlled any shine and gave my face a wonderfully balanced look. I wore it today over my foundation and the results were even better! No settling in lines or creases, no chalkiness, just a flawless finish that lasted all day. I like this better than the HD powder! This is now going to be a major staple in my makeup routine. The one thing I did not like was it didn't come with a puff or any sort of applicator. I used the Total Face brush but considering I didn't need any touch-ups, I can live with that. I plan on going back to the store and snatch up some more, the 3 dollar price tag is just too good to pass up. Quite possibly ELF's best product.
