Do you remember your first Fashion Fair product? Mine was the Oil-Free Perfect Finish Creme to Powder Makeup compact in Tender. This was back in November 2006.
Still, to this day, I don’t why I made my way to the Fashion Fair counter. I wasn’t familiar with the other makeup counters – Lancome, Clinique, Elizabeth Arden, or Estee Lauder – so naturally I would gravitate towards the only Black makeup counter in the store, right? Was the brand really as old-fashioned as the ads suggested?
The Fashion Fair rep wasn’t there – in fact, it was someone else that matched me. I can’t remember which counter she was from, but her makeup was flawless and she dressed like the girls I envied back in high school.
She did a great a job blending – I didn’t look too made up and it didn’t look like I had a mask on my face! Since I had no idea about setting powder at the time, my face was really greasy-looking. I pretended that it just made my skin glow. Yeah, that was me.
What was your first Fashion Fair foundation?
