Foundation for SUPER dry skin
My skin is extremely dry and flaky. I live in Arizona so it doesn't seem to matter how much water I drink or how much moisturizer I use--it never gets better. I use Elizabeth Arden's 8-hour cream as an overnight mask and that does my face the most good, but it's still extremely dry. I also use coconut oil, evening primrose oil, and castor oil as moisturizers, which are somewhat helpful. My problem is in finding a foundation that won't dry me out further. I have rosacea and very pale skin so I need medium/full coverage, and I'm almost always the lightest shade that almost any brand offers for their foundations. I've tried liquid and powder foundations and while mineral powder generally works better, either option still leaves me with patchy foundation by the end of the day. My skin looks like the desert floor. Does anyone know of a foundation that would work with my skin issues?   And, even though this isn't in the right category, extra points if someone can recommend a good, heavy-duty moisturizer (or several). Thanks!!

Best Skincare Products for getting Rid of Acne?
I used to have really good skin. I would only get like two pimples. Then my girlfriend broke up with me, and everything started falling apart. I've been extremely stressed. I got over ten pimples in one day. I've never felt so bad about my appearance. Foundation recommendations would be nice as well. I recently bought a really great foundation, but it is sheer and that was what I needed before but now I need something that will cover up all my pimples. Nothing too expensive. My health has been keeping me from working regularly so now I have to be much more careful with spending my money. Thanks in advance,

Kir Royale Bite Lipstick
I was looking to buy the Kir Royale in the liquid lip creme but I can't find it online. I saw that its still in the Creme Lipstick but not the liquid. Was it a limited edition and gone forever?!

Airbrush question
Hi there! I just had my trial with my MUA for my wedding. He used airbrushed my foundation and I'm not in love with the coverage. I think I'm used to a thicker texture for full coverage. Can I have him use a thin layer of my normal long-wearing foundation (pür liquid) underneath a layer of the airbrush? Will this give me a more full coverage look with an airbrush finish?

Medium Coverage Foundation Similar to LM Tinted Moisturizer?
I recently tried Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturizer and loved the radiance, but found the coverage a little too light. Is there a liquid foundation (or BB/CC cream) that gives the radiance and lightweight feel of LM's tinted moisturizer, but with a little more coverage?   (For reference, I use Too Faced Cocoa Powder Foundation in Light, and used LM's tinted moisturizer in Cameo)

YSL Touche Eclat Reformula AKA Now What Do I Do?
...other than throw myself off a bridge. I mean seriously this was my holy grail foundation. There hasn't been anything else like it on the market. So, I need a little help here before I go back to the store.    What I need advice on is for a foundation that will give me the same type of coverage, hydration, and staying power. I have Rosacea and dry, sensitive skin. Clearly, price doesn't impact my decision here in any way.    Thanks for the advice! Signed, Foundationless in Oakland

Lip liner for ABH Carina please!
Hi guys, this is my first time posting on beauty talk, and i really need some help! I just recieved my Anastasia Beverly hills liquid lipstick in carina today, and i really wanted to love it! But i find its too bright for me (I'm a neutral or medium in most foundations). I'm wondering if a lip liner would help in any way. Has anyone used a lip liner with it? And if so, which one? Thanks in advance!

Am I the only person who does not like Clinique's Even Better foundation?
I loved this makeup when I tried it in the store, and I like how it looks when I put it on. But after a matter of minutes, it looks terrible! It doesn't stay on very well, so the initial coverage (which is great) fades or somehow makes me look like I am 10 years older and sickly. It emphasizes every patch of dry or flaky skin. I switched from Lancome's Teint Idole to this foundation - and was definitely encouraged to do so by the significant price difference between the two - and the reason I switched from Lancome is because they stopped making it in my skin color. I tried getting someone at Sephora to do a color-match or color ID test thingy for me, but the result was essentially inconclusive--like I was in between colors or something I don't know. I don't know what to do or try. I pick at my face terribly, so I tend to avoid powders bcs they only make any texture on my face look worse. I also tend to avoid oil-based makeup because they tend to clog my pores, giving me the sort of blemishes I then pick at relentlessly.  Any suggestions in terms of make-up foundations/concealers = much appreciated!   by the way, I have been using Clinique's Even Better foundation in "Linen" - I am naturally pale (and a red-head) but I go tanning every now and then to avoid looking like a corpse (yes, tanning is bad, but I definitely don't get enough sunlight, and I go once or twice every 2-3 months) anyway, I tend to find that makeup is either way too dark, or like, white. Helppp!

Best lighted magnifying mirror?
I've burned through a number of lighted magnified mirrors that I loved, but now I'm on the hunt for something new. Any suggestions of what to try or completely avoid?   I use the lighted magnifier for tweezing on a very regular basis, I'm obsessed with finding every little tiny stray hair. I also carefully use an extractor for some stubborn blackheads. (I never use a blemish extractor with a lance on the end and caution others to avoid lances too, that should be left to a professional dermatologist.) Hence, the reason for burning through them so quickly, not cheap ones either.   I use a regular mirror for applying skincare and makeup. I do my tweezing and makeup application while sitting on my bed, never in the bathroom. I don't want something you attach to a wall and would like to keep it under $75.00. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance. 😊

Stila 'Soul' palette packaging
Does anyone one know why the case for the Stila Eyes are the Window, Soul palette has been changed from the gorgeous yellow and rose gold compact, to a matte pale gold case/packaging with "Stila" on the front of it?? It is only the 'Soul' palette, the other three palettes in the collection have the original mirrored gold cases. I find this very strange and am hoping this is not a permanent change so I can get the palette in the original mirrored gold case.

Sunday Riley Good Genes question
Hi all! Has anyone else experienced actual skin peeling when using Good Genes?? I had this problem with Luna as well, though so far, the peeling w/ Good Genes is more minimal (Luna gave me red skin AND peeling). Is this normal? If so, does it subside after my skin gets used to the product?   For reference, I've used Drunk Elephant's Glycolic Nightly Peel w/ no actual skin peeling issues. And have used Sunday Riley's Artemis, which is not a peel of course, with no issues.

Foundation for Oily Skin-Armani Lasting Silk vs. UD Naked Skin
Hi! I'm looking for a new foundation and these are the two I've narrowed it down to that I am interested in trying. Thoughts?   I've already tried MUFE Mat Velvet Plus, Givenchy Photo Perfexion, and Maybelline Matte and Poreless. I'm looking for something with a natural satin/matte finish and medium coverage.    Thanks!

Atelier scents lasting power?
Ok guys I'm really in love with Atelier's description of their scents and the few I've been able to smell IRL.  Since my Sephora doesn't carry many of the scents, I was thinking of getting their sampler pack directly from their website (where they then give you credit for that amount towards a later purchase of a bigger fragrance), but before I committed to what would likely be an expensive addition to my minimal scent collection (I otherwise wear ginger or Bvglari's Black--I can't stand most floral scents and am more of ginger, tea, or other quirky scents) I wanted to know how well it lasted on.   Also, anyone have any other scent suggestions for someone who likes scents with things like: Bergamot, Leather, Rain (naturalish clean scents as opposed to ones that your dryer sheets might come in), Ginger and hates: floral (esp things like rose & lily, I can deal with violet); "hippy" scents (basically if you can find it in incense, I can't wear it or be close to it without dissolving in sneezes, so things like patchouli, frankincense, myrrh, etc.)
