Primer sticks for oily skin
I have oily skin(along with good size pores lol) and I was wondering which one of these would work better: Milk Makeup Blur Stick or Estee Edit Pore Vanishing Stick?? I currently use Benefit matte Porefecting primer and felt like trying something new. Taking recommendations also if none of the above work for oily skin! Thanks!

entlNARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer Missing Shade
Hi, I see that the NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer is currently available for purchase.  However, the shade Custard appears to be missing.  Are you planning on stocking it soon? Would it be available at local stores?   Cheers!      *Edit: It seems to be available for the Canadian site.  When I try to add then switch to US site, it says cannot be shipped to the US.  Very odd!

Contouring for sensitive skin
I recently went to a contouring class through Sephora and, since I have dry skin, I was advised to use the Anastasia cream contour pallet.  I absolutely loved it, the product was easy to use and looked great.  However, a couple hours after application, my face started itching.     My skin type is dry and sensitive and I use dermatologist approved moisturizers and cleansers but normal Tarte or Bare Minerals for my face.  I figured the Anastsia would be fine but maybe not?  Is there any advice on another good cream contour kit for sensitive skin?  Or should I put something in-between my foundation and the contour kit to help?   Thanks!

foundation/concealer/powder flashback, I just don't know.
Hello I need some major help, lol My skin tone is pale, but yellowish and with lots of redness. I use the sephora primer, MUFE HD foundation and the Becca Concealer and Laura Mercier translucent setting powder. In selfies I look fine, but as soon as I take a pic with flash i look horrible, like a ghost, like I am wearing too much makeup, makeup that isn't the right color for me. is it just because the Flash pictures are HD+flash=horrible makeup? I looked up a few youtube videos, but they didnt really help. so I am posting my question here and will upload pictures... please help. what am I doing wrong? should i just wear darker foundation and concealer? but then it will be too dark in daylight...ugh I dont know   i have attached a few pictures so you guys can hopefully see what I am talking about . thanks in advance

Vitamin C Purge?
Hello! I was hoping you guys could help me figure out if i'm purging or having a bad reaction to the Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum.  I started it on Tuesday, using it every second morning.  I have since broken out in four new pimples and one that was barely there when I started has come to the surface.    I know that Vitamin C can cause a purging like this and I was just hoping for some help determining if that's what's happening.  I would really like to know before I use it for a month and totally wreck my face (it scars really easily unfortunately).    Thanks in advance!
