Oh, the Boxing Day sales!
Are you shopping today? Enduring the crush of crowds and the impossibility of parking? Or savvily filling an online cart whilst sipping your coffee?
My youngest son mentioned to Santa that he would be well advised to shop the post-Christmas sale for his big present this year—hockey skates. My other son said there was nothing he wanted or needed for Christmas. Well except for this.
But since it wouldn’t fit under the tree, we didn’t buy it for him.
As I was picking up a few stocking stuffers at Shopper Drug Mart on Christmas Eve, I was naturally drawn to the gleaming and enticing Beauty Boutique. There I found an amazing foundation at an amazing (half) price: ELIZABETH ARDEN PREVAGE Anti-Aging Foundation.
Introducing a breakthrough in anti-aging makeup. The power of PREVAGE now in an anti-aging foundation. Our unique Idebenone complex protects skin from environmental assaults to diminish visible aging signs. Vitamin C and key anti-aging ingredients correct skin’s appearance for a firmer, clearer look. Moisture-rich hydra-pigments flawlessly even skin tone for luminous skin perfection that lasts all day. Oil-free. For normal to dry skin, light to medium coverage. Naturally luminous finish.

I was colour-matched in Shade 3 by a lovely Beauty Advisor (the upside of shopping in person rather than guessing online).
It went on like a dream with fingertip application and instantly melted into my skin, making it look glowing and flawless. And the packaging is nothing short of pure luxury.
So I got a great deal, 10,000 points, and a fabulous new foundation. If you are still on the search for the ultimate base, you might consider this one. It’s a fusion of skincare and makeup specially designed for women-of-a-certain-age. Wonderful find. Highly recommended.
I’m not partaking in Boxing Day buying—Jay and the boys are off to the city to get the skates. Even though I have nothing planned for the day—maybe a bit of reading, and some sewing—I will be wearing my new Prevage foundation.
UPDATE: Scored the skates
I couldn’t resist! I went back for the powder. Also half-price.
The heavy gold compact is incredibly chic.
