Pore Putty Review and News :: Friday, August 26, 2011

So first, my news! Monday morning, I went into work feeling very good... and left with my future in jeopardy (oh my so dramatic!)

I was let go. (ι´Д`)

They just couldn't keep me any longer. The economy is very bad around where I'm living, and the doctor's office just hasn't been getting the work it needs. Since I was the last one hired, I was the first one fired. DRAT!

Needless to say, I've been searching for a new job, and hope that I can find something suitable quickly.
What's maybe the saddest/most humorous part is that Sunday night, I bought my tickets for going back to Japan over New Years... I thought for sure it would be no problem, because I had a steady job... heh, WRONG!

The situation is pretty sucky, so I doubt I'll be going out as often, which means I might not have the umph for dressing nice. So, please forgive me if my entries are boring or scarce.


OK! On to my review!!

Sana Pore Putty Makeup Base!

Recently, I've started using this product and have found it is

So obviously you put it on first (after moisturizing). It is a clear translucent base that goes on very silkily smooth, and then makes your skin soft, minimizing your pores, and evening out the look of your skin. It provides an amazing canvas for the next steps in the makeup process. It contains a silicon sebum absorbing powder that helps conceal flaws and absorb oils.

I've noticed since I've started using this product, my makeup goes on exceptionally smoothly and then floats lightly without settling into my creases. My pores (which are not small AT ALL) are minimized, and my skin doesn't get as shiny or oily feeling throughout the day. It's just... WONDERFUL!

I've really been searching for a base that does all of those things, and this product does everything it promises.

What I like most about it is that it is clear (so no worries about it conflicting with the color of your foundation), scentless, and takes very very little to cover your entire face.

Needless to say, I'm IN LOVE!

I've heard that it doesn't work so good with all foundations, though. I've been using Revlon Age Defying Makeup with Botafirm as my foundation and together they're pretty awesome :)


Along with the makeup base, I picked up the face powder.

This powder is to use after you've put all your makeup on. This product also contains silicon and sebum absorbing powder that it says helps cover pores, gives a matte finish, and keeps your makeup from melting off.

From using it with my normal makeup routine, (with and without the makeup base) I've noticed this powder actually does help my makeup stay and when my skin does start to look a bit shiny, it's helpful at getting that matte finish back. It goes on mostly clear, but it has a bit of a color to it. I'm not so sure it would work on darker shin tones (I'm pale as they come!) But, it's not too dark for my complexion at all.

My only complaint with this product is that if your skin is a bit oily or a little wet or if your foundation isn't completely dry, then the powder cakes up strangely and leaves colored patches on your skin. So, when using this product, it's good to blot your face a little before applying it. If you do this, then the powder is really good at making your makeup stay and giving you a great matte finish.

BUT, if you're using the makeup base, I don't really feel like it's necessary until much later in the day.


SO, I took some goofy pictures, to cheer myself up a bit and cause I was bored before I headed out for another day...

Making funny faces always makes me feel better!


ANNND~ New nails.

Anyways, wish me luck in my search for meaningful employment in the near future!!

 Yeah, it sucks! I had already budgeted for my trip and everything, and now I might have to completely change my plans... though, the tickets are non-refundable...so I have to go...
I'm still pretty excited about going! Just hope everything works out.

I'll be there for 11 days in Tokyo... Unless I decide I want to move back, then I"ll be staying for an indefinite amount of time.
Lots of thinking to do.

Yeah, times are really tough everywhere. And, it's so scary how sudden the jobs are disappearing. I literally had a job one day, and the next I didn't for no good reason and no warning!! (T_T)

I hope you get to go to Japan one day soon! It's a really wonderful place.
Thanks for the well wishes!

Sorry to hear about your job!!!  Actually, I thought I was going to get let go this week but I am safe... for now!

I have that pore putty and I was so disappointed!  It works ok as a makeup primer but it doesn't fill out my gross big pores like I'd hoped it would.

Yeah, I've been hearing about a lot of people losing their jobs lately. Very scary! I hope you get to keep yours through all the cut-backs!

The base doesn't really do anything without makeup on top of it aside from make your skin smooth and a little more even looking. I have large pores, and it does so great with my skin.
I've heard that it doesn't work so good with all foundations, though. I've been using 'Revlon Age Defying Makeup with Botafirm.' as my foundation and together they're pretty awesome :)
