Face Painting

UPDATE: Ladies, I'm going on two days now with the new AVON product and so far so good. Works just as well as Smashbox. I would totally order a bottle and check it out for yourself.

Hi my name is Camila and I'm a make-up product junkie.

I swear I am a marketer's dream client. If it's in cool packaging preferably pink and has a snappy name then I'll be sure to pick it up. I'm always trying new products out and when I find something I love watch out. I become the PR ambassador for the company.

My latest great find also comes with a thrifty option as well. So depending on your price point you have your pick.

A couple of weeks ago while at Ulta I had a complete impulse buy at the register. I had always wanted to try Smashbox's Face Primer and they had a trial size version right within my reach. The primer goes on before your foundation and it helps smooth out your skin along with having SPF 15 and helping your make-up last longer. I fell in love with it and have been using it everyday. My only problem is that I would love for the price to be bit lower. My small bottle was $17 and a normal size one goes for $42. In the grand scheme of things that's not that bad, but I was on the search for a thrifty option.

Enter Avon. At work we had an AVON catalog doing it's rounds. I had never ordered anything from Avon, but decided to give a couple of things a try, because the prices were unbelievable.

I jumped with excitement when I saw their latest new product: MagiX Face Perfector! It claimed to do everything that Smashbox's Face Primer did along with a higher SPF. What's not to love? I ordered it and received it a couple of days ago. I decided to try it out this morning and so far it's perfection. Plus the price is amazing! Only $10 bucks and right now they are having a buy one, get one half off promotion, which means you can order 2 for $15.

I'm one happy lady with my latest find.
