The Crafty Practitioner
I am one of those people who tends to find something that I like and repeatedly purchase it/order it/ eat it/ etc. It is not that I don't like trying new things, because I do, but more that I don't like to mess with something that works or that I like.

I have been using the same liquid and powder foundations for like 10+ years. Estee Lauder Double Wear Make Up. I have always liked it, it has great coverage, lasts a long time, and you get a lot when you purchase. Also, it never made my face breakout, I could even sleep in it!

A couple weeks ago I was shopping at Sephora and I felt like I just needed to try a new foundation, something struck me and I felt like it was time. So I grabbed a sales associate and asked her to help me with foundation. I explained to her what I had been using and that I had been using it  F O R E V E R so I was clueless on where to even begin.

She told me about a few and I ended up deciding on "Make Up For Ever- Mat Velvet +" liquid foundation and "Make Up For Ever Duo Mat" powder.

I love them!!!! The finish is amazing. The liquid foundation starts becoming a matte powder type finish as soon as you start rubbing it on. The feel is awesome and totally squashes and sign of grease, the powder is the perfect finishing touch. 

I am so happy that I decided to try something new instead of sticking to what I knew!

  1. I do the same thing. I am not opposed to trying something new but if my tried an true is available then why rock the boat?

  2. I am completely a creature of habit, so I totally know where you're coming from. I have heard though that your skin and hair can get used to certain products, so it's good to mix it up once in a while. I am currently on the hunt for new under eye concealer... let me know if you have any tips!
