When I go on vacation, I usually pack the
day of night before I leave. I know this isn’t the best way to do things, but it’s how I’ve been doing it forever. What?! I work well under pressure 😉
I told you guys, this being married and a responsible homeowner of 7 months stuff has made me a changed woman. This past trip, I made a list 🙂
I even packed so neatly, that I had a little wiggle room for my Uggs & blow dryer.
I mean, I impressed myself. There was only ONE medium-sized (I didn’t even use the big one!!!) suitcase. Not even the usual 2nd suitcase filled with shoes. No jumping on the suitcase to zipper it, no having to take out stuff to make it shut (like every single other time I pack!). I was feeling so minimalist and paired down **cheesy smile won’t wipe off of my face**.
Until we got to Utah, drove to our house, and I took a shower.
I got out, and went to put on my makeup for the night out. I realized that I left most of it home.
Neatly tucked inside an airline approved Ziplock baggie that was still sitting right on my bathroom counter. UGH!
When we went grocery shopping, I reached for the cheapest thing I could find since I’d only be using it for a few days. I grabbed the closest shade to my holy Chanel Mat Lumiere.
L’Oreal True Match liquid foundation. It claims to be “super-blendable”. I figured, it’s better than nothing. In my pessimistic, I-can’t-believe-I-frikkin-forgot-my-stuff-after-feeling-so-responsible-stupor I put myself in, I snatched up the bottle and paid the 16-year-old behind the counter at Walmart.
I went home, showered & rubbed this lightweight gel-like liquid on my face. To my surprise, it was super-blendable! It far exceeded my expectations!!! I really loved it! It’s super thin, so the coverage isn’t wonderful, but it blends like a dream.
Of course I went back to my Chanel when I got back home, but I have been using the True Match under my eyes and near my nose layered on top of the Mat Lumiere. I love it. Mix n match it baby!
