What's your go-to shadow for on-the-go?
Our fave is the Color & Smudge Shadow Crayon! It's super creamy,  long-wearing, and the best part... it has a built-in blender! You can apply hands free and mess free (pretty much anywhere you are). We also love the magnetic sealing cap which prevents any makeup transferring on your bag! Say goodbye to marked bags!   http://www.sephora.com/color-smudge-shadow-crayon- P416378?keyword=TR%C3%A8STIQUE%20Color%20%26%20Smu ...   xx trèTeam

Beauty Products That Share Your Name
Just like finding your name on a gift shop key-chain, I've always liked being able to do the same with beauty products. I thought it'd be fun to have a thread where you could post products (even non-beauty ones!) that share your name.   Here are the (few) products that I've found with my name: Zoya Lauren* (pink nude beige with shimmer) Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Lauren (punk rock pink) Jane Iredale PureMoist Lipstick in Lauren (creamy matte copper) Julep Lauren (hot tropical pink creme; discontinued) Napoleon Perdis Mattetastic Lipstick in Lauren* (pink tan; looks like it is now extremely hard to find in the US) *products I own    Also, shout out to @veronika23  for suggesting to start a new thread on the main feed.    I can't wait to see what products everyone will dig up!

primer & foundation for large pores and acne
I have slightly oily skin but my acne still flakes. I need a primer that will smooth out my skin as well as pro-long my makeup and a foundation with full to medium coverage that can build without caking/smearing. Also, is there a oil I can put on my acne to prevent it from being so textured and making application easier? I'm not too expandable on money so my range is drugstore to anything $40 and under. Please help!!!

Tools and techniques: Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge
I had never used a cream blush before I used my mom's  Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Rose and absolutely fell in love. Paired it with Bobbi Brown lipstick in Brown...again I'm OBSESSED! AND she gave me both SCORE! Loved the cream look so much that I already bought my second shade in powder pink.   Im not 'm thrilled about applying with my fingers I felt like it wasn't blending for a natural look and when I try to blend it more it looks like a messy mistake. But everyone always says to do it with your fingers and no brush. Am I doing it wrong? I feel like I'd just be more precise with a brush. Any suggestions on which? Bobbi website suggests their full coverage face brush but it's a bit pricey of course.      Also I saw in a video (which I can now not find) that there was a technique for applying blush for people with round baby faces I think it was more of a straight angle. I've never contoured  before but I have a baby face! Is there a tip with cream blush for us puffy cheek girls?

Best Long-lasting primer for normal dry skin?
Hi, I've been reading up on the boards and google, but haven't quite found the answer to my question based on my skin type. I'm looking for a primer that will extend the lasting power of my make up. I use LM Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer on an everyday basis and I'm specifically looking for something that's long lasting . I also finish with UD all-nighter.    I've used Smashbox Photo Finish (liked but haven't tried in a couple of years, didn't notice a huge difference in lasting power), and Hourglass Mineral Veil (it didn't really do much for me, the consistency was a little off as it seems it sometimes can be). I would give either of these another try if that's what's recommended.   I have very good skin (it's normal, with some dry patches sometimes) to the point that when I had my makeup done, the girl kept trying to wipe off my make up, and was shocked when she realized I wasn't wearing any on my face. I'm only saying this because I know one of the draws to some primers is how they smooth out the skin (ex. hourglass), and I'm not really interested in that, I'm simply looking for the best long lasting primer.    Thanks for any and all help

What are your favorite SPRING Fragrances ?
i remembered that last autumn we had a 'what are you favorite fall fragrances' thread so i thought, with march right around the corner, a favorite spring fragrances could be fun.   to be clear, i don't exclusively wear fragrances that are considered seasonally appropriate. but some days i crave it ! and the older i get the more in tune i am with this, as well.   florals come to mind for spring, but for me it's when the earthy dirt/green scents reign supreme (though vetivers/citrus concoctions or gardenia don't really pop up until summer for me). my list will have both !   TOCCA - colette . this is more of a late winter / early spring fragrance for me. the way this smells, to me, is the way a grey February / march day looks. it's cozy but on the edge of blooming. so i'd feel remiss to not add it here. DIPTYQUE - philosykos . the ultimate fig green scent. not jammy, fruity or tangy, but more suggestive of leaves after a fresh rain in the warmer air. in my top 3 favorite fragrances of ever. DEMETER - tomato . smells of a wet green garden. it reads tomato leaf more than tomato to me, though both are there. green and earthy, the tomato itself gives it a bit of 'bounce'. (special shout out to DEMETER 'new leaf' which i like to mix it with). an under appreciated fragrance note, it melts into the skin, and smells fresh while not at all soapy. ISSEY MIYAKE l'eau d'issey . the classic anti-angel (mugler) from the 90s, designed to smell of water. fresh white florals that are in no way cloying. if anyone is ever interested in training to nose to like florals (rather than simply smell their mom / grandma when they smell them), this is one i recommend to start the ball rolling.  KEROSENE - pretty machine . kerosene fragrances are not for everyone; what i've found is that while most are rather unique, they're not particularly complex, really, which makes them very polarizing (some many people love them because they're very accessible and pleasurable, while a seasoned perfumehead may be craving much more). but i love pretty machine. it's a jasmine bomb which manages to be fun and punky rather than demure and sweet. it basically screams "YEAH I'M A GIRL, DON'T F WITH ME". i'll add more below as and if i think of them. special shoutout to COMMODITY moss (i don't own it--the longevity on me keeps me from purchasing; but i do tend to hoard samples of it)

Need help! Something similar to L'Impératrice, from D&G
Haven't seen that question posted yet. I've been wearing L'impératrice from D&G for about 5 to 8 years (can't remember where/how/when I 1st purchased it, its a mystery) and I really love it, however, I'd like to change for something else. I've been getting samples of Jo Malone, Commodity (hated Mimosa), État libre d'Orange (didn't like any of them, still need to try Remarkable People), and none of my Sephora stores carry the Pimrose brand for me to try. What would you suggest? I want something different because I'm entering a new phase in my life, good one, and want to mentally link it to another perfume, but so far, I don't like anything with strong floral or tonka smells... I'm sure you guys understand. I'm looking for high-end, non-celebrity brands, budget of max $200 for 100ml. Thanks!!

full coverage powder?
I am 23 and and normal or oily skin (throughout the day it gets oily). I went and a worker paired me up with the "Born This Way" foundation and the "IT" clear powder. I liked the foundation, not so much the powder. Through out the day, I become so so cakey (I use a setting spray and beauty blender once my face is put on to help really set the makeup) and I ALWAYS get thick, gross looking "smile lines" that I have to smooth out with my fingers by the middle/end of the day?? I'm not so into the thick look, I like to be a little more natural but also able to cover small imperfections...I am a nurse and a mom so my get ready time in the morning is almost non-existent. I feel a full coverage powder would help with my get ready time in the morning and wont leave me looking so cakey by the end of the day. I feel like since I'm wanting a more light, natural look I should go with Clinique or Bare Minerals? TIA ))

SKIN CARE..Breakout control
Hey guys! I had a question regarding to skin care products. So, recently I’ve been experiencing some serious breakouts. My face has always been in good condition, and I have been using several products to do that (Kiel’s, Korean skincare, Fresh), in addition to that I always thought that good genes are another reason for my ‘problemless’ skin (my mom and sister have the best skin ever!!). However, the breakouts that I now have consist on small acne look-like pimples and are in only one section of the face (the right one and forehead), the left part is perfectly fine. I believe that my T-zone has recently become more oily than usual and that’s the reason behind this breakout. So I’m looking for a good moisturizer (oil-free), cleanser, and mask. I’d like to note that I’m allergic to tea tree oil so what do you guys suggest? Thank youuuu!!
