Which primer?
I will be going to Hawaii for a month and I think that due to the humidity I will need a primer to ensure my makeup has some staying power. Right now I am using the NARS Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and it lasts for me without any primer until about 3-4pm when applied at 7 am. I am in between choosing three different primer options at the moment. Any thoughts on the following:   Sephora Collection Beauty Amplifier Ultra Smoothing Primer  http://www.sephora.com/beauty-amplifier-ultra-smoo thing-primer-P412147?skuId=1829274&icid2=products% ...   Cover FX Calming Primer  http://www.sephora.com/calming-primer-P388019?skuI d=1641281&icid2=products%20grid 388019   NARS Pore & Shine & Control Primer   http://www.sephora.com/pore-shine-control-primer-P 415963?skuId=1900117&icid2=products%20grid 415963   Or any other recommended primer? I do have oily skin when it comes to the afternoon and more dry in the morning.

Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)
Welcome back to the deal sharing fun! Deals shared here may also be posted to my blog (same name as the thread) unless you write for BT only. If I share your deal, I will always thank you here. I will heart every deal I see (without an outside or cheat link) to acknowledge it.   Beautytalk (the forum) does not allow outside links. A heart with no comment means I already have the deal or am deciding not to list it. Please list the retailer (without the link or cheat link; dot com) if it is not mentioned in the picture. Mods come in more often when they see any type of link. Thanks for sharing (original deals and repeats are welcome)! Please also share any deal haul you want, especially mystery gifts.   Discussion is encouraged. A lot of questions come with certain deals or retailers. When I see questions I can answer, I will respond (unless the poster consistently ignores me or someone else already answered the complete question). I read all the main posts (so no need to tag me). If you're replying to a post that is not near the top of the thread and want me or a specific person to see it, please tag us.   If you're posting about something on sale at Sephora, please share it here:   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Hauls/Sephora-Sale s-Section-Get-it-Now/m-p/2122832#M44949

make-up routine...looking for a change
I was posting to see if anyone has some recommendations on make-up routines/products. I've been currently using Smashbox Studio Skin foundation, Born This Way concealer and finishing it with a Becca loose powder. I'm never really happy with how my skin looks using these products (primer and finishing spray included). I have acne prone, combination skin, with some scarring. I wanted something a little more basic, then having to spend so much time on my face in the morning!

Does Milk Makeup Sunshine Skin Tint have SPF?
I'm just wondering if milk makeup sunshine skin tint has SPF? Some review say that it does, but it doesn't say anywhere on the product description. I received a sample with SPF 30 and I'd like to purchase it again, but only if it has the SPF.

I'm in Canada. It does say on the Milk website that it contains SPF. So you're probably right on the regulations thing!   see post

finding a suitable concealer similar to MAC NW20
I typically use MAC NW20 but want to try something else.  I've been using MAC for a long time but technology changes so I am pretty sure I can find something else.  I'm interested in either Sephora Collection bright future gel serum or Tarte marcuja concealer however I'm not sure what color(s) to choose that would be suitable replacements for MAC NW20.  Any suggestions?

Can you bake your face using HD powder?
I simply cannot seem to find the answer to my question on the internet! Are you able to bake your face using HD powder or do you need to use a translucent setting powder? I know that HD powder is considered a "finishing" powder, but is translucent powder a finishing power or a setting powder? Thank you for reading!

Recommendations for this lip color?
She said in the video that it's Estee Edit coco balm in blush layered over a lip liner but did not mention the lip liner. The balm by itself is too sheer, and I can tell it will be more so on my tanner complexion. Does anyone have any suggestions? I love this shade! It's so fresh!
