My Trip to the Prescriptives Counter - UPDATE


Wish me luck! Going to get a foundation mixed up for my complexion. If I look like a hookaface I promise I will get pics. :rotfl: I will update this blog this evening to let you know about my experience.

UPDATE:

I went across town to Macy's and it took me forever to find a parking space and traffic was horrendous. But I managed to stay sane through it all.

So the lady did my "Colorprint". She took four different skin tone concealer looking sticks and matched my skin tone. I turned out to be a Blue/Red. Which means my undertones are pink. There are three other undertones people can be.

First she applied Super Line Preventor on my clean skin.

Next she applied Intensive Rebuilding Lotion.

After that she then began applying the Virtual Skin Foundation in Camellia with a Foundation Brush. She finished it off with Virtual Skin Powder in Camellia. She also applied Colorscope Cheek Blusher in (what I think was Plum).

I took closeups of before I went (with no makeup) and the after result. The jury is still out with me on how I feel about it.
Before (No Makeup)Before (No Makeup)

After (Trip to Prescriptives)After (Trip to Prescriptives)

I did not buy a bottle yet but had her give me a sample of the foundation, lotion and line preventor. I did, buy the Foundation Brush because I really loved the feel of it and I needed one.

well i am by no means an expert lisa. but the lady did a demonstration. she took a mirror and put foundation: on a sponge and rubbed it on the mirror. the result was the sponge soaked up too much foundation and your face doesn't get even coverage. on her finger and rubbed it on the mirror. the result was your finger puts too much foundation on the skin because of the oils on your skin doesn't absorb. on the foundation brush and rubbed on the the mirror. the result was and even coverage because the bristles (somehow) provide the even coverage you need. i will say that i haven't tried it myself and when she did my makeup there were parts on my skin that looked cakey. around the brow line. she also took a smaller brush and blended around my nose and eyelids. the brush felt amazing though. so soft and wonderful.

I have to ask? How can a brush make your foundation go on evenly and not looked streaked?

the lady at the counter also said prescriptives invented the foundation brush. but all the other companies try to take credit for it.

i plan on being very obsessive with that brush. it cost a small fortune and i would :cry: if it anything happened to it. :rotfl: at jenna noticing my brush from far away in my case. you must still have lingering feelings when it comes to your brush experience. :rotfl:

I want your skin aud!!! Man, it looks good even without anything on it (which is NOT the case with my skin :irk: ) but with the foundation it looks like it's photo-shopped or something! Maybe you could do another post after you applied it yourself?? and what's the code for :unicorn: ?

I thought I saw the Prescriptives foundation brush in your train case!!! :D It is a very wise investment. Just remember to take care of it (because I didn't take care of mine :mob:).
