My latest obsession
I know I can't shut up about Bare Escentuals makeup (truly the best foundation and concealer in existence), but I just discovered another Bare Escentuals product recently, and I'm hooked: Clear Radiance. It's one of those shimmery powders that reflects light, and it has a slightly pinkish tone—which sounds garish and horrible, like something Christina Aguilera might wear, but is actually lovely and pretty—that brightens up the skin and makes everything look gauzy and fuzzy in a great, 1930's-movie-closeup kind of way. My skin's not bad, but definitely not gush-worthy; whenever I use this as the last step in my makeup routine, though, people fall over themselves to ask what I'm using or what my secret is. And, by the way, I promise I'm totally unbiased and aren't secretly working for the company. I just love all their stuff that much.
