I am finding as I get older that my skin is much more sun sensitive and tends to redden easily, even in a gray New York winter!
Imagine my pleasure when I see Clinique has come along with a line to combat my Irish heritage! Redness solution is an under makeup moisturizer that neutralizes face color. It's light green in color, but once makeup is placed over it, it evens skin tone. I love it, or should say I did until last week...One hectic morning I was off to a meeting but decided to stop for a bagel at my favorite bagel place. I knew the meeting would last until lunch and bagels can always get me through a long morning. Ah, I pondered, sesame with chive cream cheese?? Egg bagel with salmon? Dreaming, I hopped into the car and sped off.
Oops, I'll need a coffee, too, I thought, as I joined the queue inside the bagel store. Hazelnut decaf with half and half will be wonderful!
"Next in line! Can I help---", the counter woman looked at me aghast.
"Yes, I'd like a sesame bagel with chive cream cheese..." As I am giving my order, I notice the woman's jaw is agape. Huh??
Another counter woman saunters by her, and as only a New Yorker can do, says, "Oh, honey, you really are celebrating Saint Patrick's day, aren't you?", My counter woman smiles.
And then it dawns on me...
I never put the makeup on over the green Redness solution moisturizer!!
"Yep, I'm going to the parade in New York" I said lightly...and high-tailed it out of the bagel store as quickly as I could!!
