Red Light!

I received MAC’s Strobe Cream Pinklite in BB’s Skin Multitaskers Discovery Kit. I applied the Strobe Cream (in lieu of my regular Clinique Pore Minimizer) after my moisturizer (Benefit’s Total Moisture) - and instead of a lovely pinklite shimmer - my skin turned red and splotchy! Red light!

Despite the initial redness, I completed my makeup routine just to see if there was a benefit to this primer. There was not. During the day my foundation became creasey and cakey - something I’ve never seen before because I wear liquid foundation, and don’t use a setting powder.

So MAC’s a no-go for me. Clinique’s Pore Minimizer continues to get the green light from me!
