What's in your current cosmetic rotation?
Since fall is upon us and the collections are slowly being unveiled, I thought maybe we'd all share what we have currently in rotation while summer is still holding on, and maybe if you want, share things you know you will be transitioning in for fall.    I will start -Armani maestro liquid foundation -illamasqua hydra veil -lancome efracernes concealer -naked 2 palette -burberry effortless mascara -Elizabeth arden ceramide cream blush in nectar -Givenchy le rouge 103 -Armani lip in heat   Bringing out for fall: -kevyn aucoin sensual skin enhancer -clarins primer -kvd ladybird -new reds/darker lipsticks -less bright blushes

Foundation that gives slight glow for oily skin
I am looking for a foundation to make my skin look amazing. I know that really depends on my preference but I would like some foundation recommendations. I have oily, acne prone skin and I currently use Makeup Forever HD foundation (177). The color is close but just a tad on the yellow side, but it's not something that I haven't been able to work with. My best color match is actually a drug store brand (loreal true match N8) but unfortunately it breaks me out...BAD!  I like the finish of the MUFE foundation, but I want something that gives me a little glow, but also something that doesn't make me too oily. Any suggestions?   I have tried NARS sheer glow and absolutely loved the finished, but it creased really bad and if I remember correctly, it broke me out some.

Eye Primer for Oily Eyelids???
Hi, I'm in need of a new eye primer. I have been using the Nars Pro Prime. It has been the best I've tried so far but recently it's starting to let me down. I don't know if it's the warmer weather or the eye shadow I'm using but every thing has been creasing, smudging, and/or fading by mid day. My eyelids are super oily, I never even put concealer on them because it never stays. I've already tried Urban Decay and have never liked that one. I've even used the hourglass face primer on my eyelids but that didn't help much either.  Can anyone recommend a good eye primer for me?  I would also prefer the eye primer to be paraben free. Thank you.

Q. BECCA EVER-MATTE PORELESS PRIMING PERFECTOR.
Hi ladies. This is the first time I have ever been on Beauty Talk and I'm needing some input on Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector. In theory, I love this product. I've had it for about two weeks now and have used it and played around with it every day. My problem is that when it dries it leaves white, flaky spots on my face that look exactly like dried glue. I warm the product between my fingers before application and pat it on as opposed to rubbing it on. Still have problems with flaky, white unattractiveness. I really don't want to return it because like I said I love the idea of this product I really want it to work! Anyone have a similar experience or tips on how to apply this product without it looking like dried glue? Any help would be MUCH appreciated!

Winged Eye Liner! What's your fave?
Everybody loves a Winged liner, but achieving the look can be somewhat challenging. The perfect product for beginners is Benefits They're Real liner, you are able to get a smooth line every Time. Another favorite of mine is Kat Von D Tattoo liner, the fine tip brush applicator creates fine precise line the color payoff with waterproof setting is an added bonus.  What are your Favorite eyeliners? Why? Tips or tricks?

How should I keep the foundation from around my nose from rubbing off even after using primer?
I have a lot of redness around my nose, and no matter what foundation or primer I use, the foundation always seems to rub off around my nose. Yes, I rub my nose a lot because of allergies. But also I find that retouching my makeup that often is too troublesome. Whenever I rub my nose with a tissue, I see all the foundation/concealer around there rub off. This happens with any foundations that I use and it really bothers me!! Does anyone know why this is happening to me??

Any recommendations for a body balm/lotion to hide stretch marks/make skin look more even?
Hey guys,   Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a body balm or lotion that would help cover up stretch marks or make skin tone look more even? I'm a light medium tone.   I've already tried Matte body perfection gel by PERFEKT but I think it looked sort of orange on the skin. Didn't look too natural & really had to work it into the skin.

I love a guy who knows his skincare and makeup, and you guys certainly know your stuff!  I'm really curious to know - what got you so interested?  Were you encouraged by anyone or did you discover it all yourselves?  Do people notice when you wear makeup?  Do you get hassled about it?  Do you get positive comments?   I think it's great that you are here.  I'd love to know how you got here, if you don't mind my asking.  Girls are marketed to from practically infancy about beauty products - guys not so much!  So, how did it all start for you guys?

Foundation Question
Hello! I have a question I am sure is asked a lot. I am having trouble finding a foundation, well kind of. I was matched in store for MUFE Mat Velvet+ in No. 20 Ivory. I do really like this foundation but since its summer I went back in to find something a bit lighter looking and a more natural finish. (I have Combo Skin that gets oily through the day on the forehead). I was matched with the tool they have now and was told I was 2Y04. Well now I am really lost, how do I know what color I am and how do I go about finding a shade for me with out having to go and try them all on and not get pushed into one I don't really like. When I go to find my color matches through the foundation I already have it comes up with 1R03 and a totally different set of colors. Now I have also gotten my hands on MUFE HD in 115 Ivory and it also looks good on me. So If you can help me out I would much appreciate it.

Subscription box photo sharing
I've been on the Ipsy waiting list, but still look at the thread. I thought we could have a shared thread from all the subscription boxes (including non-beauty ones likes underpants and lifestyle such as Wantable and POPSugar). That way we can live vicariously through each others goodies!   (I know there are unboxing videos on YouTube, but I do not have the patience to sit through a five minute video about someone apologizing for the state of their hair. And I know there are blogs where I can see photos, but everyone usually gets different items in their boxes)

I have acne, majority of the time, on my chin and around my mouth area and throughout the day I get an oily t-zone.

Bite Beauty Event
Last Friday I had the opportunity to go to the Bite Beauty event at my local Sephora (Les Ailes (Ste-Catherine), Montréal) and had the opportunity to create my own bespoke lipstick shade.    It was definitely my favourite Sephora event to date!   They transformed a corner of the store into a mix between a candy shop and a chemistry lab, and I was given the occasion to sit down with the super lovely and helpful Sarah from Bite to create the lipstick I always wish existed!  Not only did I get to create the exact shade I wanted, I was also able to choose the finish, and essential oil scent.     I know they do the same thing at their lab in NYC.. Has anyone else had the opportunity to create their own Bite lipstick either at the lab or at an event in their store? I'd love to see the shades you created!

Allover bronzer for summer
Hi beauties!!!   I need your help finding a bronzer. Throughout the year, my skintone is light, and I wear UD's Naked Skin in 3.5 (or ED DW in Fresco, NW20, L'Oreal true match C3) for reference. In the summer, I get quite a bit tanner and all my foundations become too light for my skin. I try to mix these shades with darker ones I have, but they still end up being too light to match my body. My face is also lighter than my body because I exfoliate it.   I don't want to buy a darker foundation, as I switch up what foundations I use daily, and I don't want to be limited to 1 foundation. I've been trying different bronzers to lightly use all over my face to warm up my complexion and darken my face a bit to match my body, but I haven't had any luck finding one that is dark enough/looks natural.    I've tried: Too Faced Chocolate Soleil - doesn't seem to have any effect at making my face any darker? I have the regular and not the milk chocolate, but it just doesn't seem to be dark enough or something...  NYC Sunny - way too orange Benefit Hoola - good to contour, not good for allover my face, as it makes me look muddy Nars Laguna - similar to my issue with chocolate soleil, it doesn't seem to do all that much to warm up my face, unless I'm contouring   I've tried a few others from Wet n Wild and Physician's formula and haven't had anything that I've liked. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

I already have Moonstone, Opal and Rose Gold so the question is do I need it?? LOL...of course. But I was really wondering how different it is from Moonstone. I'm not sure how to link a picture but you can find it on Ulta or the BECCA website.

Holding a curl?
Hi, folks--   I have very thick hair that is slightly wavy that goes to about mid-back.  It will totally stay stick straight if I blow it out or use a flat iron.  But if I want to coax it in the other direction and get soft curls, they fall within an hour or two.  Short of dousing my hair with an entire can of hairspray, what other solutions are there?  I'd love to keep the look soft and with movement.  I typically use rollers, but sometimes a curling or flat iron.   Thanks in advance for your help!
