Today, I ventured into the one of two department stores here in town. Belk, which corparate offices are out of Charlotte NC, has a small level store here. It only has THREE makeup counters, Estee Lauder,Elizabeth Arden and Fashion Fair. I went specifically to play in the FF after reading a post about the FF fashion show on I Like Her Style. I can't tell how many of those I've been to! But anyway,I wanted to research to see what FF has been up to. So many times, chicas of color tend to forget our beauty roots. Yeah, we give props to our grandmothers and aunts and mothers but what about the companies that keep us beautiful.FF was and still is one of them. They were one the first companies to make a array of foundation specifically for our skin tone and colors to compliment us. I love MAC and Cargo and Loreal and Bobbi Brown and Queen Collection but lets give FF some props. I actually had fun playing in the colors and new products they had. Now my Belk's didn't have some of the newest, like Finishings, a long wearing lip color but the oldie but goldies with the new were there. Here's what I found:
FF Special Formula Lotion-my cousin Shonda introducted to me after I was complaining that water on campus was like clorox and drying up my skin. She said worked for her when she live on the campus on SCSU. To me the scent alone is divine.
FF Beauty Highlighter in Golden Light- a high intensity light bronze that I need soon!
FF e/s in Toast and Metallic Sable- Toast is a gorge champagne gold and sable in dark shimmery bronze that was beautiful in the crease of my eye.
FF True Finish Liquid makeup SPF 7 in Sheer Espresso- One of their new formulations of foundations had no scent and blended immediately into face.
FF l/s in City Life( a mauvey pink), Cafe Monte Carlo( a pretty gold bronze), Plum Passion ( my fave! a blue red matte) and Forever Cocoa( a sheer brown)- will be getting all four!
