High School

Forty years of stubbornness down the drain. Lemongrass is proving me wrong right and left. This month’s product focus is on Lemongrass Spa’s Make Up Primer. Eventually you will get used to me saying I don’t like “systems” and I’m not a “foofy girly girl.” I will stand strong on the Girly-Girl thing because even in high school I was never a Between-Class-Run-To-Bathroom-Fix-My-Makeup kind of girl. As proof, I have attached a picture which is an excerpt from our HS Senior Class Photo. That’s how I regularly dressed: sweatshirt, jeans, and for some reason – white socks with black shoes (yeah I cropped those out). I will freely admit that I FORGOT the picture was being taken that day (and why my friends are ultra cute); but I remember saying in my defense, “This is me.” See how that works, twenty+ years later I have it as hard evidence of my lack of Foof. I couldn’t have planned it better.

Now, what does go hand-in-hand with Fooflessness is the fact that I don’t like to (and frankly won’t) re-apply make up during the day. Lip gloss is the only exception. The purpose of Make Up Primer is to create a smooth canvas for your make up to go on evenly and give it something to hold on to. Lemongrass Spa’s Primer has a very satin-like feel and the rest of my make up did go on very nicely. Everything looked pretty flawless. What surprised me, was that the first day I wore it the temperature was about 90 degrees and it was quite humid. I had done a few massages and ran some errands. I had a dinner that evening with my sister and some friends so I went to touch up the make-up. But. I. Didn’t. Have. To. I cleaned up a little under my eyes, but that was all I had to do. Everything stayed put. I was sold. Especially in the summer heat of South Florida.
