THE MEET Well hello, Cover FX Matte FX. I can't tell you how pleased I am to meet you. I hear you're a pro at blotting pesky shine from a girl's oily t-zone. May I be so bold as to ask whether you might consider... well, you know. Patting me down?

WEEK ONE Matte FX, it's been nice getting to know you. I've enjoyed our first few dates, thank you. Certainly I think you and I are somewhat compatible, but may I be honest? I'm not so sure about your powder-sponge thing. Frankly, I think it's holding you back, making you seem a little stand-offish. I'm sorry, but if we're going to have any kind of relationship, I have to be blunt: I've had better blot. Do you mind if I make a suggestion? Have you considered a compact puff from MAC? No? But you will? Really?? Why yes -- *giggle* -- I'm free tomorrow. What time?

WEEK TWO Oh, Matte FX, I'm so impressed with you. I hope you don't mind my saying, but the compact-puff change really upped your game. I'm quite smitten. You have a lovely light texture, weightless on skin and not at all prone to getting thick and cakey after repeated applications. Plus, you're a Canadian, which I totally dig. I know it could be a little soon to say this, but I could use you all day.

Aw heck, who cares about going slow -- Cover FX Matte FX ($22), will you be mine?
