Many years ago, probably about five — I picked this up from one of the makeup shows here in town. What I found was nothing short of amazing. I didn’t want to believe an aloe vera-based cream product would work great as a primer/moisturizer combo, but even better, this is suitable for HD makeup too. Nurturing Force Blot Out Offensive absolutely ROCKS.
To sweeten the deal, it’s a multi-use product that provides instant mattification, even if you wear it alone! It doesn’t show up white on the skin at all once it’s absorbed, and it doesn’t take long to set. Then, you’re free to put whatever foundation product you want on top of it. I purchased this again without any hesitation!
I’ve tried this with liquid, cream, and powder-based foundations, and it’s all looked great. What reminded me to tell you about it was that I had a Glamsquad makeup artist come out a few months ago, and she could not sing the praises of Nurturing Force Blot Out Offensive enough! That night, I went to a very humid, long event, and when I got home, my skin was as flawless as when I left hours earlier. Now that’s performance! This can be a little hard to find sometimes, so I recommend picking it up from frendsbeauty.com for $25 if you can. If you’re concerned about the half ounce size, don’t worry. This should last quite a bit. I had my first jar for about two years and it was perfectly fine. [Read more…]
