Hauls
This hasn't been started yet so I'll give it a go.  Today is the last day that SiJCP has an extra 25% off clearance so I stopped in to poke around before I start up the smoker for tonight.  I grabbed all these goodies for $30.

What are some products you regret NOT buying? For me, it's the Estee Lauder Heat Wave Illuminating Powder. I'm so mad because it's so pretty! I walked past it in stores so many times and now it's taunting me because a YouTuber mentioned it.

I have been getting a lot of great emails.  Hopefully, some of these deals can come in handy for the rest of you.  Have you seen any awesome ones you want to share?  Now, is a great time to haul.      
Face Q&A
Hi! I've been looking for a nice pressed powder foundation. My skin is not oily or acne-prone. I'm 17 and I want a nice coverage, without having the foundation blocking my skin from breathing. Ideally the powder would come with an applicator because I don't have any brushes and can't invest in one.    Thank you!

I don't know if I'm just picky..  But I'm so picky when it comes to foundations matching me well.. Does anyone else have that problem? I have foundations and they look good in some lighting, but in other kinds of lighting they look weird. Is that normal? Like is it normal for foundation colors to look different in different lighting? I went to the mall today, and I looked in the Clinique mirror and it had some lighting around it and I looked so yellow! Lol I was like geez this lighting is so unflattering or my foundation isn't a good match.  I'm just so picky when it comes to foundation because  I don't want to look like a clown lol 
All Other Concerns
Hello there! So my aunt, who's probably in her 40's, has some pretty severe hyper pigmentation on her neck! She's constantly embarrassed about it and she has tried many products. Unfortunately I can't list any of them since I don't know and has even gone to a dermatologist... and that has failed. From what I know she has used only lotions and gels. I am hoping for some of you beauty lovers to have an idea or a cure or even know someone who has been able to overcome it and recommend what they used. She's pretty desperate at the moment on trying to get rid of it.   to have an idea on what her hyper pigmentation looks like I will link some photos below (not her but what it sort of looks like). Just try to imagine this all on the front of a neck... There isn't anything graphic just a picture of a neck and cheek if you were wondering!   https://escholarship.org/uc/item/4580r7rs/1b.jpg http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-3BbOj5vt2zA/TkEF2sDjL9I/ AAAAAAAAAE0/rNQg5-PR4yQ/s1600/acanthosis-nigricans ...   Please help!

I've recently changed up my skincare routine and found a foundation that matches perfectly (Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation in light sand) I've been using the hourglass mineral veil primer but I feel like it is making me look a little more glowy than I would like. And the Tarte foundation is supposed to be matte and it is supposed to last but I almost feel the primer doesn't' make it last as long as it claims to. I have combination skin so its hard to find a primer that won't make my foundation slide off my face but won't cling to dry patches. please help!
Acne
Off and on for the past couple of years I have experienced this. Certain foundations will improve my skin or do nothing at all. My least favorite being making it worse! Lately I've been experiencing rough/bumpy skin. I have a really good skincare routine, I just changed my foundation. Could it just be a reaction, clogging pores, etc from using  it?

We've all seen this on youtube, if you haven't.. go do so and have a laugh - maybe I'm always laughing and thinking to myself that it'd be fun to try this. Sometimes I say "there's no way they can mess up that bad, come on.." So I decided, why not make a thread about it?  I want to see pictures, be it one or a ton, to show how good we can apply makeup without a mirror - it's hard!  I used all products I use when I do the works, which is almost every day.  A lot of people know my liquid liner skills.. I used it here.. but it didn't come out as great as I wanted!   If you're interested in the lipstick shade, it's Shanghai Express by NARS.  Sorry for the lighting, it's either this or suffer a heatstroke in my bathroom (it's hot in there).

Okay ladies and gents I'm going to VEGAS 8/27 first time ever!!!  I have a list of places I want to go...makeup wise.  Inglot, sephora, CCO (is the CCO worth a special trip?).   Any places (makeup) I should hit, ones I should avoid? I DO NOT (just not worth it for me) do VERY high end brands.  Marc Jacobs is the most expensive brand I have. I have been saving my coins for a while and now it's time to just buy buy buy.   I'm NW45/MUFE 178 so I usually only buy from companies that make products for the deeper tones.  It's principle for me.   Post your ideas (please please please), previous adventures, and best kept secrets!  I'll post what I get when I return home and decompress.     May the makeup Goddesses and Gods be forever in your favor. May your holy grail products never be discontinued or in short supply.  May your favorite product drop on the floor and never break.  May your makeup storage be all that you dream and cleaned and organized by sweet smelling fairies.  Be makeup blessed!   *can you tell I'm super excited*

So I was watching a youtube video of Vintageortacky and when I saw her Charlotte Tilbury blush, my jaw dropped. I had my eye on the YSL peachy one but .. this... just beats it, and can I say cute packaging? I wasn't going to jump on the CT bandwagon, but according to Cora this gives a nice natural peachy touch.. yep.  This blush is called Ecstacy.    And this one is the one Cora used called First Love.

I'd really like to see Paul & Joe, Anna Sui, and Les Merveilleuses de Laduree at Sephora. I know that Sephora Champs Elysees has Les Merveilleuses as well as the Sephora across the street from Galleries Lafayette in Paris.
Antiaging
A little bit about my skin: I am 24 and have combination/dry skin   I am currently using Philosophy Time in a Bottle as my serum and am really liking it, however I am running out of it and looking to switch it up for a bit. I just don't want my skin to get too used to Time in a Bottle since I am still young and will probably really "need" it in the future lol.   I do want a serum with anti-aging benefits and hydration is always a plus.   Thanks for taking the time to read this! Looking forward to reading all the suggestions

Guys, my current foundation shades just aren't doing it for me, but my concealer is a great match. So I am looking for a foundation that is closer to my concealer shade. I am using MUFE Full Cover Concealer in #6 Ivory.   I am open to any brand, any coverage, and finish. I just need that right color. So please feel free to suggest any foundation that is a match to my concealer.   Thanks guys!

I have recently learned that Hakuhodo has an office in LA.  LA is close, but not close enough for me to just go there because I want to (its 6 hours drive from the bay area)    Has anyone been there?  I've heard that they offer 20% discount too.  if anyone is planning on going, may I ask for a favor of a couple brushes (I will pay full price plus shipping)

I got an interview, guys! I'm, as they say, scaroused. I'm so scared to mess up! What do I wear?? Should I put on a bit more makeup to show them I'm a serious addict? Any help will be greatly appreciated!

I'm under the impression that natural hair brushes work better for powder products and synthetics for liquid.    I've been eyeing the RT blush brush? or the one that is shaped like a cone for bronzer application but I know that all RT brushes are made of synthetic hairs.   Is my general rule concept mistaken or is it the quality of the brush that matters more?
