I’m all in favor of makeup that also has skincare properties—like my Kosas Tinted Face Oil, for instance, which I love. Or, more recently, Miracle Balm from Jones Road*, the new natural beauty line from Bobbi Brown. You can use this stuff as a foundation substitute, or on top of foundation, and it imparts the most natural glow (even the darker hues go on very sheer) and makes your skin feel so supple. The texture is indeed a bit like lip balm, and while I have used it all over my face, what I like it best as is a mid-afternoon face brightener: I rub a bit on my cheeks and feel like I just applied a fresh face of makeup and on top of that had a collagen treatment.
Yes, I now realize I already posted about this product, but I was sick as a dog yesterday with some 24-hour stomach bug type thing, and scrambled to create this post for you while I was still groggy. Please like me anyway.
