Several days later I headed to another store, and explained the problem and she helped me settle on this color which was just right for my "winter/early spring color". She did suggest that I return the other products, but I do get darker in the summer, so I said I would keep them until then.
|Garnier BB Cream in Deep|
I've also been trying out the Garnier "Deep" BB cream that I received at the "Getting Gorgeous" event with the CVS Beauty Club. Their colors range from Fair to Medium to Deep...not crazy about the names, but whatever. While the color, finish and moisture level were all good, they did not differ from any of the MAC foundations, so I am still not sold on the miracle of these creams...
The weather has been rather finicky, so I'm not quite dark enough for the Pro Longwear and the Matchmaster and too light for the BB Cream and Studio Fix Fluid, so I need to come up with something better, but after finishing with the Studio Fix Powder, and contouring and highlighting with multiple bronzers, blushes and illuminators, I think it works, although I do have to pay extra attention to blending at the chin/ neck.
The next step is to perfect the highlighting and contouring technique.
