I had the wonderful opportunity to spend a nice long week in Vieques, Puerto Rico this past week. Even though I got sick while I was there, I was able to really relax and spend quality time with friends.

Of course, when you head to an island or a beach you don't really pack much other than comfortable clothes and bathing-suits. So, my husband and I did the whole carry-on thing to make travel easier. BUT it sure did make the whole 3 oz liquid thing hard because I couldn't bring all of the makeup I usually wear.

So, in preparation for the trip I decided to buy a drugstore foundation that wouldn't clog my pores, that fit the 3 oz. requirement, that had a decent SPF and was cheap. Almay's Smart Shade Anti-Aging Makeup was my choice and boy did I choose a winner. Forget Makeup Forever and Lorac! This is now my foundation of choice. It has an SPF of 20, it changed color as my skin tanned slightly and didn't clog my pores.

I HIGHLY recommend it if you're looking to save money and if you want a GREAT foundation. You can buy it at any Walgreens or CVS.
