Call it beginner's luck but my first ASOS order was an unqualified success. Every dress fit as it should and I was pleasantly suprised at the quality of each dress. I'm around 167cm tall and the dress lengths in the regular sized ASOS items was perfect. I ordered my regular UK clothing size and if anything, the cut is a little generous. Just to recap, the 2 strapless dresses worked out to be under $50 AUD each (on sale) whilst the checked dress was full price at $82 AUD. Shipping was free and my order arrived 9 days after I placed it (ordered on a Saturday). The best thing about the delivery is that I didn't need to be home to sign for it or go the my local post office before 5pm to pick it up. Can't wait for the proposed changes Australia Post are making to their parcel service.
The checked dress will be perfect for work with a cardigan. It falls below the knee and is so comfortable.
Cindy wanted was interested in an update as to how I've been going with Garnier's Miracle Skin Perfector
I'm still liking it. It lasts all day and gives my skin a hint of colour. It doesn't feel heavy either. I usually use it with Garnier's tinted roll on eye cream. For more coverage and a matte finish, I've been using MAC Studio Fix over the top. I don't recommend trying another mineal based product (like MAC's Mineralize Skin Finish) over the top because it ends up emphasizing pores. For the record, I love the Mineralize range too. I use it over tinted moisturizers mainly.
How about a Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector versus Invisible Zinc's Tinted Daywear comparison? IZ's product is pretty heavy and dries to a bit of a shine rather than glow. I usually have to wear a powder over the top with it. Their stick foundation is lovely but a little light for me so I use it as a highlighter. Garnier's product is more sheer and has a nicer finish on its own.
I am still curious about Chantecaille's Just Skin though. I don't think I'll ever be perfectly content with any one tinted moisturizer. But I have promised myself to use up these two first before hitting Mecca Cosmetica again.
