I Paid $6 For Diorskin Nude Foundation!

A few weeks ago, I tried out my mom's new foundation - the Diorskin Nude foundation. I used it 3 days in a row, with my normal make-up on top. My mom and I both wear 021 Linen.

not my pic. can't find the original source but it's from luuux

For reference, here's my make-up routine (I'll do a full post on this soon):
Eucerin or Olay moisturizer with SPF
Rimmel eyebrow pencil and/or ELF brow powder
Eyeshadow - usually neutrals like MAC Satin Taupe or anything from the Naked palette
Lancome High-Def Mascara or Covergirl Lashblast
Maybelline Stiletto liquid eyeliner
MAC blush (I switch it up everyday) with ELF shimmer palette on top

I used it with full make-up around 10am each day and went to my brother's volleyball tournament all day, and left it on sometimes until midnight. It still looked flawless! Out of all the foundations I've tried (ranging from drugstore to higher end brands), this has been the best for me. I'm not a make-up blogger so this isn't a review on the foundation itself, but believe me it worked wonders for me. It didn't break me out, which usually happens with every liquid foundation on my acne prone skin. The consistency is light but still gives full coverage, staying power is great, and the way it stayed on throughout the day was amazing on my oily skin! My mom has dry skin so it works for both types! I would imagine it works for combo skin as well. With a bit of google searching this morning, I also found out that this foundation was the one Kim Kardashian was wearing on her wedding (in case you were interested).

Anyway, on to my little adventure this past Sunday. I actually had a new bottle of Bobbi Brown's tinted moisturizer that I used once. I basically used it and realized it was too dark for my skintone, and never used it again. Mind you, I bought this back in September at Sephora. I brought it with me to Sephora thinking that I wouldn't be able to exchange it but they told me I could, as long as it was at least half full! I went there thinking I'd have to spend almost $50 on the Dior foundation so when she gave me my total of $6, I was happily surprised. It just goes to show that you should always check the return policy for stores, and if you aren't using anything and you still have the receipt (or in my case even if you don't have the receipt), you may be able to return, exchange, or obtain store credit for the item.

Are there any other stores with generous return/exchange policies?

Oh that's great! Especially for having no receipt.

The best one around here is Costco, they have pretty much a 'no questions asked' return policy.

That's a great return policy!

Now I'm curious! I have very, very pale skin, so it's always difficult to find the correct shade. Might have to check this product out on my next trip to Sephora...
