Yes that Moinistat...

I'm sure you've heard by now about Monistat Chafing Relief Powder Gel being a dupe for Smashbox Photo Finish and other primers. I tend to stick to the basics (concealer, foundation, bronzer, gloss and mascara) for day to day and wear a full face when I go out which is when I usually wear primer. I have an issue with my eyelids creasing. When I'm getting my glamor girl on I have no problems but day to day it never fails that by mid-afternoon my lids look like oil slicks and there is a pool of makeup in the fold of my eyelid. So since the Chafing Gel is a summer staple of mine anyway why not try it on my on my face.


This is the before...
















And this is after 5 hours of being out and about...

Overall I'm happy with it. Though there is some slight pooling on the left lid the right looks pretty good to me, and both look better than what they usually look like. I should have taken a picture of what they normally looks like. I may do that and add it so y'all can see a true comaparison. The Chafing Gel does turn your face into a velvety smooth canvas. My makeup application went on smooth and looked great at the end of the day.

Check this article out for further information.

Reading is fundamental!! Imgine my surprise when I'm getting ready to prime my face and see itching cream on the label. So if you choose to go the Monistat as a primer route please make sure you get the Chafing Relief Powder Gel and not the itch cream like my fast behind did.
