    YOU look AMAZING! I always use Maybelline products and when you said the Maybelline side wasn't that oily, I said to the screen (yup that's my girl, Maybelline NEVER failed me EITHER)! I'm very oily in the T zone too, (forehead, nose, chin and right above my cupid's bow.... lol I love your makeup tutorials, your one of my favorites . I got hooked when I saw Your Bumble bee 🐝 tutorial (YOUR GIRL WAS SOOOOO HOOKED)! I tried it and got in trouble by the hubby cause I used real 🍯 honey lol.. I didn't have gold makeup so I used what was pretty close! I'M BLABBING ON AND ON, SORRY. I JUST LOVE HOW AMAZING YOU ARE! #YOURLOVEDBYEVERYONEINMYHOUSEHOLD

    I had the same problem too ! But the Chanel powder is so finely milled it doesn't soak up all the oils through out the day I started adding a little more and it worked for me all day! Hope that works! 😄

    I am soooo glad you did this video!

Hopefully I can find this Maybelline powder to try it out before vacation soon! Thanks so much for sharing!!! XO ; )

    You could do both blushes & highlighter like for real is it worth throwing down $35 for a highlighter when I see a lot of vids people just using a gold eyeshadow.

    I just wanted to come on here to say that I love that you state that you have affiliate links and you do make a commission off of them! I mean I know it's illegal not to, but other beauty TVcliprs don't really bother to go in depth and explain what affiliates are, and that's dishonest in a way because some people might not feel comfortable buying through that sort of link. But because you actually explained, I feel way more inclined to buy off of a credible person like yourself. LOVE YOU STAY REAL ALISSA 💖

    Maybelline definetly wins not only cause it held up the oil control but because it covered more under the eye. You could see your undereye crease coming through with the chanel powder.
