"How does it feel?" the girl smoothing Estee Lauder's Resilience Lift Extreme Ultra Firming Makeup over my face inquired. "Like silk." I replied, a bit impatient. I was more interested in seeing how it looked. That surge of new makeup induced hope was charging though my veins. Finally she held up the mirror? She had spent a lot of time testing my skin to get the right shade but I wasn't too sure about it. Could be it was the store light but I thought my skin had a slightly gray cast. She was reassuring and sent me on my way with a generous sample to use while I made up my mind. At home I tried it again. The color looked better in my bathroom mirror and much better with the addition of blush and lip gloss. As a matter of fact it matched my rather pale skin exactly and evened out my skintone. Too often,left to my own devices I tend to use foundation to give my skin more color and end up looking like I'm obviously wearing makeup. Now I looked like myself, only better. And what about the lift? Well, my face felt a bit tighter but I couldn't swear that it looked any firmer. Maybe I was unrealistic in my expectations but the firming factor aside,it is a nice foundation
