Dr Brandt Pore No More Pore Refiner


Hi again all-

So this is my review of the Dr Brandt Pore No More Refiner that can be purchased at Sephora. Overall I really liked this product. I would give it a 8 out of 10!

There are also other options out there such as the MAC Skin Refining Pore Perfecting Primer and the Clinique Pore Refiner also! I have tried both and the Clinique actually clogged my pores and the MAC and Dr Brandt did not.

However the Dr Brant is around 445 USD and the Clinique and MAC ones are around $20-25 USD and are half the size so depending on how much you are going to use they really are around the same cost!


I hope this helps you all and let me know if you have any questions!


Cheers-

Lisa

Tutorial My Foundation Routine



Hi everyone-


so this has been requested by me since I began making videos. I am not big on making tutorials because 1.) I cant edit 2.) It takes me like 5-6 times of taping it before I am happy with it 3.) I just don't have the patience and I never know what i am going to wear until i am sitting and putting it on! :o)


So this is my foundation routine- the products change ALL THE TIME!



What i used (all prices can be found online):

Sephora Anti Shine Primer

Chanel Pro Lumiere #30 Shell with the 197 brush

Smashbox Photo Op

Bobbi Brown Corrector in bisque with the BE Max concealer brush

Estee Lauder Max Coverage Creamy Tan

Benefit Powderflage with a sponge
Origins Multi Grain Medium with the Origins Brush

NARS Laguna with the MAC 138

MAC Cream Color Base in Shell

Cargo Tonga with the MAC 129



I hope you enjoyed this and please let me know if you have any questions.


Cheers-

Cover Girl Concelaer


Hi again everyone-
So I was sent this cover girl concealer stick from a fellow YouTuber to try out and I will be honest I have never been a big fan of stick concealers. They always seemed cakey and to heavy for what i like. However I did find that by applying this with a brush it made a huge difference. I will give this a 6 out of 10!
You can find this at any drugstores and it is great as a blemish/scar concealer! It is fairly inexpensive and easy to find!
So here is my review- let me know if you have any questions!


Cheers-Lisa

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation


Hi again everyone-

So this is my review on the NARS Sheer Glow foundation that has been requested by many people. First I had it in color Ceylon and I did a review on it at that point I would have given it a 6 out of 10!

Then I went and exchanged it for the color Punjab (on the recommendation of juicytuesday- since we are the same color in the Chanel) and this has changed my opinion on this. I would now say that this product is a 9 out of 10!

I have been applying it with a brush (as I do most of my foundations) and I have now learned that this foundation is best used with your finger (it is supposed to warm the product up to melt in to your skin better- thanks to Aaron-awoz on YT) so i am going to give that a try tomorrow. I cant imagine it getting much better than it is now but I am willing to try it!


So here is my review!

Cheers-
Lisa
