Review Dior Star Foundation

Hi again everyone-
This is a review on the Dior Star Foundation that I had heard a lot of people talking about lately.  I got the itch to try this after seeing both Colleen Rothschild and Vanessa (TheBombshellSuite) I was sold and knew I was going to try it.
We all know that foundations are my weakness.  I love them and the results they give.  I am always on the hunt for the perfect one, however even if I find one I always still try more.  It is like finding the perfect pair of jeans.  :o)
I am combination oily skin.  Oily mostly in the T zone.  I do need to set this foundation and make sure that those areas do not have oil breaking through.  This also photographs beautifully even though the SPF is a 30.  I purchased this in the color 020 and I was able to color match myself on the Sephora website with both my own knowledge and the Sephora IQ help.  Plus the descriptions are  pretty good.  The cost on this foundation is a bit on the high side at $50, but there are some higher and lower.  It just depends on what you are willing to spend and try.
The finish is a satin on the verge of matte and it is a medium very easily build able to flu coverage foundation. I like to apply it best with an It Cosmetic Brush from Ulta.  It is a cool brush and totally different.
It took me a little bit to decide what I thought on this and to find the way that it works best for me, but now I really do like it.
There is a side by side in the video of my applying it.

Product Breakdown
Pigmentation- 4.5/5

Longevity- 3.5/5
Application- 4.5/5

VLOG week October 11th through the 17th

Hi again everyone-
So this week was a little un eventful and I honestly have to get better about remembering to pull my camera out.  It is a learning curve I guess.  The camera was super shaky this week, but I have a new thing that might help. This week I did a little shopping and a lot of little other stuff.  Diesel makes an appearance, by popular demand.  :o)  I also took some time to organize my closet for the change in seasons.  Then I got the OCD cleaning bug and cleaned out my pantry.
Please let me know if you have anything you would like to see more of.  I try to do outfit of the day and any meals that are interesting.  :oP
I hope you enjoy!

Face of the Month Too Faced Neutral Eye Palette September and October 2014

Hi again everyone-
Every month I do this video called Face of the Month.  I do it once a month in the middle of the month showing what I have been using recently.  These are not really tutorials since they are just me hanging out chatting and showing you what I have been liking and how I use it.  I tend to name it after a Eye look I am doing so people that have seen some of my other videos and read in the description what I was wearing, can then find the way I do the look also.
I really enjoy doing these videos because I like seeing how people do their makeup from start to finish.
I am working on the focus, because if I put it on auto ficus it has a lag and focuses on the background sometimes.  When I have it on maul, if I move to much it goes out of focus.  I should have stuck with a handy cam.  haha.
So on to the video.  Here is what I am wearing:

Eve Pearl Salmon Corrector
YSL Fusion Ink Foundation

TAG Secret Life Of a YouTuber

Hi again all-
So I had heard about this TAG video going around through my friends Marnie and Kristin. I watched a bunch of these and thought what a great way to get a sneak peak into the thoughts of those of us that sit in front of the camera.  It is interesting to see all the different outlooks on the questions.  Some very similar and some very different.  :o)

Here are the questions that I answered.
The questions:
1. How long have you been on YouTube?
2. At what point do you think you will stop?
3. The best thing?
4. The worst thing?
5. How many thumbnail options do you usually take?
6. YouTuber crush?
7. Who’s on your collab wish list?
8. What are you wearing on your bottom half?
9. How long until you actually click “record”?
10. How do you feel about the YouTube community/culture?
11. What’s your secret to a successful channel?
12. Who do you tag?

Weekly Vlog October 4th through 10th

Hi again all-
This is my third week for vlogging.  I need to try and really figure out the stabilization part.  My camera has an automatic stabilization, but as you can see it doesn't do well for me.  I also tried to stabilize in IMovie on this video.  Let me know what you  think.  Anything you guys would like to see in these?
