One of the most important things about color cosmetics for me – as an athlete (and once performing athlete in dance and figure skating – is the lasting power. I don’t wear much because fresh-faced and natural is so much more appealing to me. But when it is required to pull myself together, I still want something that will hold up – to humidity, sweat, heat, rain…whatever. Being a porcelain doll is lovely – but for me personally, having to worry about my face melting off is just not something I am willing to deal with.
I’m not sure this is a USA release, or whether it will be – no word of it ’round here. But thanks to ReallyRee, I caught wind of it, and felt the need to share for those of you who have also not seen it – in store or online. (There are other blog posts for sure, if you feel like snooping.)
This actually reminds me of a pot that L’Oreal had back in the early 90’s – I can’t remember the name of it but it felt like skincare, which totally appealed to me (even at an incredibly young, and non-makeup-wearing age.)
The Fresher Skin formula is humidity and sweat resistant, starts as water-gel, and transforms into a “refreshing cream,” a la many Japanese products before it. It doesn’t clog pores – another HUGE point for me, absorbs shine, and doesn’t settle into lines. It happens to look really nice on her skin – and she has other photos, so definitely check it out.
