The AFTER shot..

This is the after photo pertaining to previous Before photo, after using Garnier 5 Second blur..
Anyone see a difference? Yeah, me either. Damn it, Garnier. Okay, thats harsh. Damn it, ME for falling for the instant trick. I know nothing is instant. I know there is no quick fix. I know all of this and I know I know it, but still I fall for the "instant" on the box. The same thing happened with the L'oreal Miracle Blur. I saw a new product it promised instant results: amazing, smooth, even tone skin and radiant glow and delivered nothing. Although I am protected from the Sun. That's always a plus. But the thing is I'm not looking for a sunscreen. I have umpteen million sunscreens. I want instant results.. I want the product inside to do what the box promises on the outside. Clearly now I'm not just talking about the instant blur. I know nothings instant..I knew in my heart it wasn't going to work but I still had a glimmer of hope that just once an instant promise would be just that. What I am looking for is the Colored Contacts of beauty products. The Manic Panic of skin care, if you will. That one minute this way, next minute that way kinda fix, ya heard. Its inevitable that my heart will break repeatedly and I will lose all faith in cosmetic promises, but in the meantime I will continue my search. My quest for the Holy Grail face changer in a tube -at a discount price will persevere. I know that there are extreme quality cosmeceuticals on the market that work like a champ. Maybe the results aren't instant, but they are damn near, and the changes/improvements are noticeable ones. Alas, these little tubes of happy and jars of perfection are far beyond my means. I am sure if I went one year without wasting money on "instant" promises from drugstore and medium level products I could save enough to buy one actual promise fulfilling product but wheres the fun in that? Plus I wouldn't have trial and errors to blog about. So, overall and throughout my time wasting opinions and ramblings this us what you should come away with after perusing this episode..Nothing under $20 is instant as far as erasing what time & life have done to your face. The Garnier 5 second Blur would make a fine drugstore primer, comparable to the Holy Grail Photo finishing primer from Smashbox, but do not expect anything else. It will not blur anything-unless you get it in your eyes, and the only thing it erases is $17 from your bank account. If you are hell bent on blurring imperfections just run real fast passed everyone you mert, or take selfies while in motion. Thank you to the small small handful who are reading my blig. Please soread tge word that I am awesome, and let me know you care by commenting. Please. Just a little self affirming smiley face would be fine. Soon I will decorare and link to other social sites when I figure out how. Tune in next time when I "before and after" eSALON hair color and L'Oreal Preference Ombre Touch for medium to dark brown hair and Remember, its About loving yourself, its About Embracing the now, its About Hope and as alawys, its AboutFace
