Thank you!  She is the sweetest thing.  At Mother's Day lunch at our favorite Mexican restaurant, she said the most moving and precious prayer.  Years beyond her age.  Her daddy is teaching her to be a business woman Smiley Happy  She has already bought, raised and sold two calves.  She's on her way to making enough to buy a Quarter Horse.  Her parents bought her a rescue horse first to see if she was really going to be interested.  I don't see her very often anymore since she's so busy and now has a stinkin' boyfriend Smiley Sad  Why do they have to grow up?

Re: Fenty Wear Test (HOT & HUMID)

@monicakm I also HATE SUMMER and I'm in upstate NY!  It's been lovely so far this June, but the humidity starts in tomorrow.  I honestly don't know how you folks in the South cope with that kind of humidity for so many months!  

 

I also hate getting sweaty before my makeup is completely finished.  It ALWAYS happens, even if my bathroom/bedroom are at 75 degees.  The minute the sunscreen and then foundation goes on, I start to drip.  It's awful and I attribute it to menopause!  (As an aside, I once asked my Mother how long the hot flashes lasted and she said "until you're 80"!  OH NO!)  I have to go stand under the ceiling fan (on high!) for a few minutes until it calms down to do my blush and eyes.

 

DH and I just returned from a trip to CA to visit son and daughter in law.  Yes, during the 100 plus degree days.  I now understand how some folks can go through so much moisturizing cream for their bodies.  The air was just sucking moisture out of my skin.  I was amazed.  

 

Thank you, Monicalm for making me feel like I'm not the only 60+ woman that melts while putting on makeup!

 

P.S.  Yesterday, I was running late and as I was putting the Fenty Body Sauce on my arms and chest, said 'why not?' and put it on my face.  Added a bit of concealer and blush - done!  I looked like I had been to the beach in CA (which I had not!)..  I do like the Body Sauce!

@monicakm   I have to tell you that your post really made me smile.....actually, laugh. I live in Florida and I hate summer, too. Hate it! Can you imagine? My dressing table is in my bathroom and I have a ceiling fan running full blast when I apply my makeup and the A/C is always turned down so much so that my husband is wearing a flannel shirt in the house..........I kid you not!  

 

I can't wait for Fall.  Smiley Very Happy

Re: Fenty Wear Test (HOT & HUMID)

I don't live anywhere near Texas or Las Vegas.  I will say this, I'm not putting on a full face to go nowhere in the heat.  I used to be able to do this.  I'm at that time in my life where I've said "I can't take it anymore."  Fanning myself, hot flashes and the like....No.  No.  If I am going out for dinner or something I'll do my face, but otherwise when it gets hot where I am, nah.....I'm not doing it.

 

Good on you @monicakm.  I use Fenty as well.

Oh I wish I lived in Vegas!  Favorite city EVER and we don't gamble or drink).  I know they're having the same heat wave the rest of the country is having (currently 107 but humidity is 5%)  But LV is not skin friendly Smiley Surprised

I tend to shy away from lotions on my body when it's so hot.  Tell me about her Body Sauce please Smiley Happy
