DearAmy, I have a question about the Smashbox Primer (because I know you haven’t talked about the stuff enough.) Anyway, I don’t have the one with the special anti-aging (ageing?? whatever.) chemical…you know, the one that is kind of rosy colored. Mine is just the plain old clear-ish photo finish one.

Smackdown Field Trip: Makeover on a Budget

Smackdown Field Trip: Makeover on a Budget
