Foundation for multiple concerns
I have truly oily skin (like an oil slick within 2 hours after washing my face) & can't use intense cleansers because I also have hormonal skin from breastfeeding.  I've found a skincare routine that's acceptable for the time-being, but cannot settle on a foundation I like.  My MAC foundations have been oxidizing to horrid shades & I cannot for the life of me find a MUFE HD shade that comes close to matching.  I've become so overwhelmed by being unable to be matched in stores that I don't know if I'm even trying good foundations for my skin.  But here's the final catch: I'm allergic to aloe.  So anything by Clinique is completely out of the question & so are several other brands.  I'm hoping someone can help!

Yay I know you can send a digital gift from benefit for a free eyebrow wax or make-over Bodyshop - $10 off if you have their membership Anthropologie - 15% off card Angus Stake House gives a free dinner (if I remember correctly) for your first birthday as their member   What other companies do treat their customers for a special occasion?

Help choosing a bronzing powder.
I recently have fallen head over heels for Guerlain and purchased both the Lingerie de Peau foundation and BB (amazing products!).   They are both a titch light for my present summer complexion but just ever so slightly. I've been using BareMinerals Ready Bronzer in Skinny Dip and it is nice but just wondering if there are better/other options. I don't want a glitter bomb face and I am prone to oiliness - OK massive oiliness. Any suggestions? I thought Guerlain was known for their bronzers but I haven't seen overly positive reviews. Thanks.

Beauty over 50
Well that was the most depressing hour of my life. I decided to google "beauty over 50" and I just feel like shooting myself lol. Apparently I'm supposed to wear tinted moisturizer (no foundation), 1-2 at most neutral eye shadows (no color under any circumstances) and forget about lipstick with color. Yes maam - keep that whole face as boring as neutral as possible.   You guys have no idea how this does NOT jive with my personality. I've worn makeup my entire life and I cannot tell you how often I've had ppl come up to me if I'm at a makeup counter and ask me for advice because they thought I worked there.    I understand at my ripe old age of 50 I shouldn't be glowing in the dark decked out with sparkles and glitter but my God, I just bought the Marc Jacobs Siren palette and I love it!! But apparently I should gather up all my non neutral makeup and bury it in the backyard.   Say it isn't so.

Help finding right color and foundation
I just bought the LAURA MERCIER Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - Oil Free in nude because that was a choice when I did the color IQ. It looked ok in the store but when I went home to try it on it made me look slightly pale than my neck and chest. This might be an option for winter, but not summer. i also didn't like the white cast it gives off when taking a flash photo. Can anyone help me find the right shade and a foundation with minimal SPF? Thank you!

First Experience at SiJCP
I went to SiJCP in search of Beauty spatulas.  They were also having a Benefit They're Real liner event, and I was interested in getting a custom skincare kit.  The first lady I talked to had no idea what spatulas I was referring to (come to find out she was not really helpful at all will explain later). Gabbi came over and showed me to the spatulas. I got the last ones. She confirmed they are not coming back in stock, which I knew thanks to the lovely Randee. I asked her if I could participate in the They're Real liner event. She grabbed the tester and started sanitizing it. I informed her that I would rather not have that put on my eyes even with sanitation and would just prefer to use the sample they were giving out for my eyes. Apparently, they ran out the first day of the event (whenever that was). That was odd, because I overheard a different associate talking about a headpiece she was wearing and she said Benefit sent them a bunch of stuff for the event. I almost said but refrained that it would have been nice if they sent more liner. I could not care less about their fancy accessories, but I would have liked to try the liner. I cannot be the only one who does not want the tester to touch my eyes. I saw the tip, and I doubt alcohol could sanitize it well enough.   I needed $45 to qualify for Rouge, so I figured I might as well go for it. There were nowhere near enough spatulas alone to get me there, so I found a few other items. I wanted a custom skincare kit, but they were fresh out. When the first lady scanned me up, she said I re-qualified for VIB. Correction, that was months ago. She called another employee (the one who was loving the Benefit accessories) over and she concurred that my Rouge status would not be effective yet, because my last purchase was less than 24 hours ago. It updated online already, so I thought that was weird. Anyway, I told her just to ring up the spatulas. I did ask her for samples, and she gave me the Murad one and the Philosophy perfume. Two more than I ever get in a freestanding store.   On my way out, I noticed a sale section that has some of the same items in the website's sales section, but the prices were better. I grabbed a few. This time, Gabbi checked me out. She mentioned that I was $9 and some change off from Rouge, which was odd because I thought the items would have got me there. I added one more item on to get me over. Yay. I made Rouge. She insisted on finding me a kit with a lipstick, which was very nice of her. At first she mentioned getting me a mirror, but she said they were out. A completely different lady told her she should give me a packet full of samples, which she did! I was very happy about that.   When I got home, I noticed that the Beauty insider account number on the spatula receipt was not even mine. I wish I would have noticed when I was in the store. It makes sense now that I think about it, because there is no way I would just be qualifying for VIB. I hope whoever I qualified is grateful I got her/him there. However, I want the purchase transferred to my account, so I sent Randee a pm. Gabbi put the second purchase on my Beauty insider account, so I would have qualified the first time if the unhelpful lady would have used my account. I am actually glad it worked out the way it did. I doubt I would have stopped by the sales section had I already qualified. The lady who suggested I get the bag of Rouge samples was not at the register the first time either, so I would have missed those as well. That lady never even heard me ask for samples, so it was so nice of her to offer them out of the blue. Overall, I rate my first experience a B (taking points off for having a They're Real event without samples they are advertising, and ringing me up on the wrong Beauty Insider account despite giving her my VIB card). I cannot really hold the lack of skincare samplers against them as items sell out when they're good.   One final thought, I am glad I saw the Divergent polish in person and never ordered it first. As I never return anything, I would have been mighty upset that two of the colors were grossly separated, and I could not shake them back to normal (yes I tried, because all 6 polishes were on sale for $5.99)!

Too Faced Melted Berry
Does anyone have this? I just bought it from TF's website. But the color of the product itself is absolutely nothing like berry. It was actually closer to melted ruby than it would be a berry. It was also bright, which is unusual for a berry toned color.   So I was wondering if it's like this for everyone, or I just got a weird batch.

Hey Beauties ! I was just here thinking and browsing the Sephora site along with my collection and it made me think about some stuff that just wasn't worth all the hype or wasn't all that .

Mark Jacobs kiss pops.... Thoughts?
I got the kiss pop I ordered in the mail today... Definitely not what I was expecting.    On first looks, the packaging is super cute and feels very high quality.    I ordered crush, which was described as a tangerine red, and all I'm seeing is tangerine. I'm very pale, and this comes out as a true orange on me in natural light. But mostly, this is far from moisturizing, in my opinion. It nearly crumbled when I applied it, and already my lips feel dry. I'll wear it around the apartment tonight, but I'm not so sure this will be staying.    what are everyone else's thoughts on these?

What would I be in Dolce and Gabbana Matte Foundation
I'm going to Finland in October and right now, my color  IQ is only showing the colors that would look good in during my summer shades.  It says that I should wear Golden Honey because in the summer, Kat Von D Deep 66 kinda matches my skin tone (it's still a little bit dark but is passable).  But when I tried to look up my old MUFE fall/winter color (dark beige), it also gives me golden honey.  I don't think that's right but the next color up is soft tan and I know that would be too light (I don't consider myself tan"). No one is carrying D&G in store for me to try out (no stores that I could find) so what would be my best bet for a fall,matte color?  I want to try to stay with D&G because I'm dying to try their line since I'\ve heard that they are spectacular.

Skincare routine for oily skin ?
Hey all, I need recommendations on a skincare routine. I have oily skin, and there has been times that I breakout. I'm not sure if it's because I don't cleanse my skin well, or if it's just the foundation that I use. So far I wash my face every morning and night. I use Philosophy to take off my makeup first, then I use the clarisonic gel cleanser with the clarisonic machine which I love. Is there something I'm missing ? How do you care for your oily skin ?
