New Products Review: Loreal Infallible Pro-Matte, e.l.f. Poreless Primer, & More

Hello World! So last week, I picked up a few new products, so I decided to try them out on camera in tutorial form!  See the video below, or on my youtube channel, Kerin's Korner! (I'll probably be posting more makeup videos there in the future so feel free to subscribe!)

The full reviews of all the products I got are below, including first impressions and what I thought after continuous wear.

L'oreal Infallible Pro - Matte (Cocoa 112) - 4/5 stars 

On first impression, I really liked this foundation. It was a fairly good match and had really good coverage, without feeling heavy on the skin. It had a true matte finished as advertised, so that was a plus. As I continued to wear it throughout the day, it think it held up pretty well. It claims to a 24 hr foundation, but I don't know about that. After a couple of hours, I could start to see some separation, but it definitely lasted 8+ hours, so that's good enough for me.  The only drawback for this foundation is that the undertones were a little too red for me, but when I added a more golden powder on top, it balanced it out nicely.

When I first tried this primer, I wasn't sure how I'd like it. When I first put it on, I noticed it was very silky and smooth, and felt great on my skin, but I was like ' I have oily skin so this is not going to work because it's too slippery.' But I was wrong! It has a satin-like finish, but it sits on top of your skin, so you have a smooth even base, and it actually keep me fairly shine-free throughout the day! And it's only $6 so I would definitely buy it again!

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush (paarty) - 5/5 stars

So first off, this isn't actually a new product I got because it's not actually mine. 😊It's my sister's, but it was my first time trying it so... anyway. I liked this blush well enough. It had good color payoff, even on dark skin, and it's a nice simple pink color, that you could wear everyday. I didn't wear for 12 hours to see if it does in fact last 12 hours as it claims, but the color didn't fade for the 8 or so hours I did have it on. 

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil (Dolce Vita) - 4/5 stars
I really like this lip pencil and this color. Dolce Vita is a dusty rose color, so I think it looks really good on all skin types. It's a 'your lips but better' color, so it could be worn everyday. I like the application and color payoff. It has a really creamy texture, but I found after a bit a wear, it was actually kind of drying, so make sure you really moisturize your lips before applying it. 

Honestly, everything I said about the previous products holding up and lasting throughout the day could have been due to this spray, but I don't know. However, this spray definitely did help with transference, and when you use it, it makes your makeup look more 'lived in', and not like you just put a full face of makeup on. The only drawback is this spray is $17, which I think it pretty steep for the drugstore, and it didn't do anything that exceptional, but overall it's still a good setting spray.

Watch or Nah?: A Single Man (2009)

 Hello World, Here's my first movie review of 2021. The first movie I watch this year was A Single Man. I have no particular reason for watching this film, but it was on Netflix, so I watched it.  Film/ Television Show Information Name: A Single Man Genre:   Drama, Romance Director :  Tom Ford Main Cast:    Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Nicholas Hault, Matthew Goode Ratings 1 = Trash 2 =Meh 3 = OK 4 = Solid 5 = Bomb Acting/ Performance X Comments:   All the actors in the film provide outstanding and memorable performances, but the leading role by Colin Firth is outstanding. His performance as George is both captivating and haunting. He manages to portray George's constant grief and constant hiding as he tries to act like a man that has it all together, without giving away too much emotion.  It is superb, but all the actors really bring their actors to life very well.  Writing/Screenplay X Comments:  The basis of the film is really a simple story. It's just one day in a man&#

Tuesdays with Kerin: This is It!

Hello World! This is it! I'm done! I did it! I had my last final today, and now I'm done with the year! YASSSSSS!!! This time couldn't have come any later, because I am so done with school. But alas now I get a reprieve.  Hmmm.. let's see what did I do last week... Well my new found love of Supernatural has turned into full blown addiction. It is literally all I do. I sit down, eat ice, and play Solitaire while I watch Supernatural. I'm over halfway through season 7 now, and it's still good! If I'm not watching Supernatural, then I'm watching the NBA Playoffs, except for the Rockets, because I'm not allowed to watch them. After careful experimentation, I found that whenever I watch the Rockets they lose. As much as I want to be apart of their success, I can't. I'm a bad luck charm, so I must be a fan from afar. But I can watch the Warriors all day! Thankfully, neither DubNation or RedNation, let me down, so we gone have a
