The perfect lady and makeup: Foundation

March 28, 2009 at 4:10 pm 5 comments

I saw Jessica Alba’s endorsement for Revlon Custom Creations foundation on TV the other day. “What do women want? Foundation.” And not just ANY foundation. A foundation with an innovative bottle which offers five shade settings, making it easy to fine-tune your foundation shade for the perfect match. Not to mention that it also blends seamlessly into skin for a naturally flawless look. Finally. With just the turn of a dial. Finally.

The ad itself intrigued me. (OH MY GAH! FOUNDATION! OH MY GAH! JESSICA ALBA!) I went online and tried to find the ad on youtube but apparently it’s against TOS to put up that kind of stuff. Bummer. 3 product reviews and 4 wordpress blog reviews later, I gave up. If anyone has the dialogue I would appreciate it. You know where to reach me!

The next best thing is the paper version of the ad.


And of course, Jessica Alba says,

This shade is mine. Go get your own.

Of course I wouldn’t want to share makeup, as good as it is. Yes, even if Jessica Alba used it. Remember that both Shine, Glamour, and Prevention magazines all frown against ladies sharing makeup with their friends. Granted, it’s a rather nice way to try out makeup without buying it first – and no matter what celebrity says how awesome it is–yes, even if Jessica Alba says it’s AWESOME–it’s cool to know that you’re not wasting that 50 bucks on foundation you might dislike. Recession, remember? Gotta save. You can skip purchasing the foundation anyways *slap slap* oh noes, what am I saying? But get this, people. Sharing makeup could mean nasty germs. You could go blind. You could even die. So play it safe and don’t share makeup!

Back to foundation. I had a chat with a guy friend, named Rob.

Perfectlady: I was looking for a makeup ad today…
Rob: Makeup? yech… 😛
Perfectlady: yup, jessica Alba
Revlon custom creations
Rob: yech!
Perfectlady: it was about foundation, specifically
Rob: ah…. foundation…
Perfectlady: ???
Rob: a Solid Rock on which to build upon?

The guy clearly does NOT get it. Foundation is not the Solid Rock on which to build upon… it is the Solid Rock upon which we beautiful laydeez put the rest of our makeup. Get a grip, dude! Ugh. Men.

What do women want? Foundation.

What kind of foundation do women want? Revlon Custom Creations foundation. A foundation that enables the woman to create the perfect shade with one simple twist of the dial. In stores for $13.99. Get your own. Now.

ps: I still have nightmares from the time a couple of my friends did a makeover on me. They took an eye pencil, grabbed my face, and commenced to poking my eyes out. I did not go blind, however. I did not die. Though I feared that that would be my fate.

    Ha!The woe of almost every other woman. You gleefully buy a shade of foundation which looked oh-so-perfect under the glittering lights at the store . But come home and see, it either makes you look too pale/ too dark/too thin/too fat/too unkempt /too patchy and shabby with the just-recovering-from-pox look. SIGH!!

    Pls to post another review again after youve used it 🙂

    P.S: This is the other ‘shorty’ -ronnie, from fitnessfervor. Glad I chanced upon your blog 🙂

      Not yet, I’m too poor =( But I’ve read reviews and people generally agree that it’s very smooth and nice to use. =)

    The first step for selecting the foundation that is just right for the skin to which make up has to be applied is to recognize the skin type. Once the skin type foundation is identified, next step is to determine the foundation shade on the basis of the skin colour.
