Very full coverage liquid foundation for combo light skin with pink undertones?
Hi! I'm looking for a *very* full coverage liquid foundation for my light skin with pink undertones. I have mostly oily skin but with dry patches from acne medication, even with moisturizer. My acne is unfortunately quite bad right now, so a lot of coverage is a must! My skin is a pretty standard "light" -- not pale or porcelain, not light-medium. The pink undertones are pretty strong so a lot of foundation looks yellow on me, even neutral tones.   Estee Lauder Double Wear was pretty good, but I couldn't find a shade match, and boy did I try! Kat von D was too drying and pasty. I use Tarte Amazonian Clay right now, but I'm looking for more coverage. MUFE didn't work out, but I can't remember why...    I'm going to Sephora to look at Dermablend Cover Creme and CoverFX, but I was wondering if anyone had any more ideas, especially for pink-based foundations. Much thanks!

KVD Chrysallis Palette price match
So, I stopped into one of my local SiJCPs today and the Chrysallis palette was on sale for $20.  But they were sold out.  They said if any more came into the store, they would also be priced at $20 because they are being discontinued.    I called the rouge line and was told they could not price match the item and that it would continue to be sold at the $46 price online.  This really aggravates me. I'm so sick of the whole two seperate companies thing.  Technically couldn't I just buy it online, take it into the SiJCP, return it for $46 and re-buy it for $20?  So what's the point?     End rant.

I started using 3 new products for about the past couple days. But last night I went to bed with my eyes red and I thought that was weird. This morning, I woke up with my eyes swollen. I've been using fresh soy cleanser and floral toner then moisturized with clinque dramatically different lotion for the past couple days morning and night. My eyes doesn't hurt or itchy.But I still don't know the cause of my problem. What do I do?   ps. I'm visiting my dad in Seattle right now, so I can't go to the doctors

Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette
  So a few hours ago Trendmood posted on their page a look at the new UD Naked Smoky palette.  I haven't seen a picture of what the packaging looks like but I'm guessing it'll be the same design as N2 and N3 in a gunmetal color. This will be released on July 8th on the UD website. Is anyone  else interested in this palette? I think I may pick it up to round out my Naked palette collection. Radar, Armor, and Black Market are repromotes from the Vice 1 and 2 palettes. All the other shades are new. They look very similar to current UD shades so hopefully when comparison swatches are released they are significantly different.

Gift ideas- sending to India
Hi beauties, I'm planning on sending purses for my sister in laws in India. I wanted to pack them with some fun makeup as well! They all have kids and range from ages 30-50. I was thinking of adding drugstore makeup- particularly lipstick and mascara and then the fresh sugar mini and MAYBE some eyeshadows (wish Urban decay Ammo or pulp fiction was still on sale!).    I'd love some suggestions for the lipsticks! I don't have any drugstore lipsticks and am sure they've come a long way! I think for mascara I'm going to go with the maybelline's in the teal package, but not 100% sure. I'd love to hear any ideas you might have on anything all the way from the handbag to any makeup product!   I'm also limited on time So i need to be able to buy stuff at the store or ship from somewhere that isn't too slow. TIA!

Rebuying most of my makeup
So as most of ya'll know I live in Louisiana. Where mother nature has been on a tear as of late. Over the weekend the creek that my house backs up to finally went over its banks. Which left one place to go. My house. Thanks to great friends, great insurance, and great thinking, most of my stuff managed to escape the worst of the damage. But alot of my makeup didn't. My foils and minis are ruined for the most part. Alot of my full size was in a higher place, but not all. So at this point I am going to have to start rebuying. I have tended ( as ya'll can tell from my posts and reviews ) stick to the same stuff. Everything that I have used has been my HG. But maybe i need to step outside of my box. Try new things. So i turn to my fellow BTers who always have great product recs for the girls that are just now starting out with makeup. So i wanted to get some new ideas from ya'll of new things to try. Just across the board. I generally stuck to MAC foundation, overcurl Dior mascara, Naked eye shadow, 24/7 and stila eye liners, orgasam blush, the porefessional primer, and tarte setting powder. I figure i may try and turn a negative into something positive. At least in this small way!

I may be cheating on Sephora...
I recently won a $500 Nordstrom gift card ina beauty blogger giveaway- and my first thought was wishing it was a Sephora card- right?   Of course I had not trouble using some of it recently- on some things I had been lusting for. First thing I noticed is that their free samples are really luxe- many are deluxe size and really high end things.The next thing that happened was that my purchases not only ended up with individual gifts with purchase- ie a Bobbie Brown shadow stick AND a mascara  for buying corrector and concealer, and an hourglass primer and mascara for buying an hourglass blush, but I got a GWP I didn't even now was happening- a leather zipper pouch with a bunch of deluxe samples that blew my mind- dolce and gabana mascara, YWL under  eye concealer, La Mer toner- it was a huge number of things and almost every sample was as big as the one we get for spending $25. To add to that I discovered their points program is cash credit...and in addition you can link your ATM to get points. It has me thinking.....
