Review: Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Oily Skin

24 Jul

The ever popular foundation used on Youtube and the most loved I suppose. Sorry for the flash and my shade is in Sand Beige.

Review: I have not as much experience with foundation as most people would have if they were a makeup artist but I have learned. This was my first liquid foundation and man was it hard to determine what foundation technique I should use with it. I ended up doing the stippling method, foundation brush, and the sponge method never liking any of them but the stippling method (but it was a pain to clean the brush takes 2 days for it to fully dry). Even though this foundation was pretty much liquid it gave the coverage required (medium to full) and worked as all those people on Youtube have said. Drugstores do have a good range of colours for people of different skin tones and this colour matched me really well. For the oily skin formula it did control oil a bit but at the end of the day you look like you have a sort of healthy glow due to the oil. Things I didn’t like about it was that it could get very thick and cakey especially in the summer. I like the natural feeling where you can’t feel the foundation on your face but this just wasn’t one of them.

Cost: $15 – 19CDN wherever available

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this for those oily people in the wintertime (who likes wearing a full face of makeup in the summer?) . Though for me I would only reserve this foundation for special events (full coverage) and wintertime.

Planning + Studying + Working on a video

7 Mar

Oh… a post so late at night… I should be studying for my Japanese midterm tomorrow but I got so off-track!

Anyways… I finally got an Youtube idea going on through my head and since your first video that you put up on Youtube is very important I decided to start putting together a foundation video. Now there are lots of how to put on your foundation on Youtube already so I really shouldn’t be doing that sort of thing but thing is those people only show one way of many. So I decided to put together a makeup basic foundation routine based on what sort of sources an average person has and which technique is fast or requires some sort  of skills. Not going to go much in depth but I’m going to try to make it as professional as possible so it’s going to take some time…. if I calculate right then it should take about a month to put up that video. Yeah… a month and I’m not going to start filming just yet mainly because I just don’t have time… I now have respects for those people on Youtube who put up a video like everyday… crazy!!

Anyways… the photo of the day…

 
The question of the day is…  Am I winking or am I blinking?
