Alright, alright. I’ll admit it: sometimes I can be over-the-top. I get excited about something and I go all-out. When it comes to hunting, that’s especially true. That’s probably why I’ve decided to really make my hunting trip this week something special. And of course the only way to do that is to use makeup.
Yup, you heard that right: makeup. Or “face paint” to be exact.
See, I’m currently in my home state of Wisconsin to do some duck and goose hunting. And since I’m also a regular viewer of “Duck Dynasty,” I figured the best way to show how dedicated I really am is to start painting my face in black, brown, and green when I hit the fields. I did it this weekend, and it worked:
In fact, I was so excited about my new look I decided to debut it on Tuesday’s BlazeCast with Editor-in-Chief Scott Baker. I may have made him regret ever making me Deputy Managing Editor:
The paint is from the folks at Natural Camo in Minnesota, who make their product and packaging in the USA. Eery once in awhile someone will send me a book or product to review. And while I can’t promise I’ll say anything good about it (as an editor my job is being critical), I can say I’ll try and get around to it. Well, I’ll say this about the Natural Camo: If you look at the pictures above, I think it works — or at least it doesn’t hold you back. It’s also not greasy like other face paint products and both dries quickly and comes off easily (without disappearing while it’s on your face in the field).
A pack with three vials retails for $24.95. That’s a little pricey, if you ask me. But it does come with an easy roll-on applicator and even a small mirror and carrying case. You can buy single vials for $6 each, which the company says gives you 8-10 applications (but that also differs on how you use it).
I give it four ducks in my rating system. Although I’m not sure how many ducks my rating system goes up to. I’ll get back to you on that after I’m done hunting.
