Product Review Nicole Paxson “Mimosa” Liquid Foundation: Put Your Best Face Forward!
Living with Lupus is often not a confidence-builder, but looking good is. As a Lupus patient, I have experienced symptoms ranging from uneven skin and light facial redness to spontaneous lesions and “butterfly rash”. When these symptoms manifest, the last thing on my mind is feeling pretty. Despite Lupus, life continues, and as a woman I want to put my best face forward and, on the days when my Lupus symptoms do not cooperate, I look on the bathroom counter and find my Nicole Paxson Cosmetics “Mimosa” liquid foundation there to help me look and feel better.
Nicole Paxson has struggled with Lupus for many years and is fighting to change the face of the disease and those that suffer from it. As a Lupus patient herself, Nicole donates a portion of the proceeds from Nicole Paxson Cosmetics to Lupus Research organizations. I know that looking good even when I don’t feel my best helps me to be more confident. Nicole Paxson Cosmetics helps me regain my confidence with incredible coverage, even the harsh red “butterfly” is transformed and magically disappears. Many Lupus patients experience photo-sensitivity in sunlight – I am no different. After trying available cosmetics to cover her flare, Nicole could not find a foundation (or concealer, for that matter) that covered her Lupus rash– so she created one that did. I like using the the “Mimosa” liquid foundation– its component comes with a pump to disperse the perfect amount without wasting a drop and application is an easy use of a makeup sponge or your fingertips.
I love that each product is named for a North American butterfly; Monarch Crème Foundation, Painted Lady powder, and Tropic Queen Bronzer. Like the metamorphosis that happens to a butterfly, I am amazed at how my skin transforms when I wear it.
I love this product so much that I absolutely give it 5 enthusiastic spoons! It’s amazing.
