Ugh, the NARS sheer glow foundation looks horrible. It won't blend into my dry dry dry skin. And I've found that every foundation I own (and I own a good amount) just refuses to go on properly. Even the Neutrogena moisturizers I was using don't do their jobs any more. The SPF 35 just sits on top of my skin and makes it greasy, while the one for combination skin just won't absorb. I can rub it in all I want, but it just streaks and gets pushed around without sinking in. The only moisturizer that actually works (and I am SHOCKED) is the Jergens! Lucky me, it has SPF 20 in it so I don't have to worry about going outside too much.
I need to buy some new foundation tomorrow. I just don't know what to try. My budget is limited to drugstore, so I'll have to pick up something totally new. Or maybe I'll try out Maybelline's Dream Smooth Mousse again... it didn't work with my past oily skin, but maybe it'll work on dry skin.
I'm so frustrated right now because I am going to have to make do with what I have until I get out of work tomorrow. That's 8.5 solid hours of interacting with people while having gross skin. Ewww. At least I could cover up my acne. Flaky skin on top of a few cysts (and my face is wicked red and blotchy lately) is a lot harder to deal with.
It's worth it, but I will be SO glad when this is all over!
