While I was gone, I received a lipstick I had ordered from Benefit. They included two samples of items I'd never buy myself, because they attack issues I never worry about. But I tried them anyway, because why let them go to waste?
The POREfessional--This is described as a balm that you apply to problem big pore areas and it helps disguise the fact you have big pores.
Now, I know my nose has big pores. Every time I go for a facial, the facialist describes them as "congested" and warns me she'll have to do lots of extractions. Heck, I can extract them myself in the am after my shower and get that little frisson of disgust and satisfaction watching the little worms pop up. But you know what? I am not regularly filmed in HDTV. Therefore I am happy in my normalcy here. But yes, you can use this to even out your pores. After I slathered a bit on my nose, I didn't notice them. The texture of this product is thick, and it is tinted like a concealer, and I'd use it in conjunction with foundation. However, no one gave me weird look and I wore it without cover.
Girl Meets Pearl is supposed to give you a luminous complexion. Frankly, I did not notice any luminosity, but the ladies' at work is notoriously dark. I'm pretty pink in general.
I did order High Beam in a Sephora order today (15% off for Beauty Insiders with the code CHIC), in pursuit of a "supermodel" polished complexion, as I might be taking a lot of pictures soon. Review to follow on that.
