    can you please do a review on nars foundations and clinique? i have very dry and sensitive skin, so you´re the only youtuber I can follow. If it suits you, it will suit me. Have you tried nars sheer glow/longwear, or clinique even better? Which one is the best? help me, please!!!

  • Cassidy Ebersole

    I’ll always go back to Revlon Colorstay. It’s just so reliable for me. I’ve been wearing it off and on since like 10th grade. It’s also one of the few foundation lines I like that also has a shade light enough for me. I would be devastated if they ever discontinued it.

    I have a trick to blend the colorpop foundation stick. if u use hot/warm water to wet ur beauty blender, it will be a lot easy to blend out. i aslo really really like the colorpop foundation stick cuz it is not messy and kinda give u a true skin natural look.

    this video helped me so much!! I'm one of those crazies that will spend an insane amount on high end foundation when drugstore foundation are just as good if not dupes for high end foundations already. definitely going to try some of these out the fit me I have and is amazing as well as the revlon color stay which is also amazing. I don't like a lot of coverage so its hard to find a glowy minimal coverage foundation these days. I am dying to try the flower beauty idk where I have been maybe under a rock but I did not know that was drew Barrymores brand and I am so excited to try her foundation!

    So far the only foundation I can find that sits perfectly on my skin and works no matter what with anything is the Milani conceal and perfect foundation. They also need to expand their shade range because I can’t find a color for me to even mix during winter months that isn’t too pink.
