Pressed powder recommendations, please
My favorite bareMinerals Ready Touch Up Veil in translucent has shattered (third time; third compact-- booo!!). So I need to switch to another brand. I am sensitive to many pressed powders. The talc makes me itch. I prefer translucent, or perhaps the color light. I do not need oil-control properties.    I am very dry, but it's okay currently due to good skincare routine. I have evenly colored, blemish-free light skin with yellow undertones, zero oily t-zone. I use the pressed translucent powder several times a month to make my nose seem poreless, or maybe to take down sunscreen shine that may break through from under my bb cream (on my forehead). A couple times a year I use it to set foundation (but I rarely use a true foundation, mostly bb). Thanks!

I am going on an Asian cruise soon. I am unfamiliar with  Korean beauty products. I thought this would be a good time to try some. I could use help from any BTers who could recommend products for a 60 yr. old with dry skin and wrinkles.Thanks

What mascaras are you buying for Mascara Madness?!
Mascara Madness is back at Nordstrom this Saturday the 23rd. Buy 2 get 1 free mascaras! The only "high end" mascara I have used is They're Real by Benefit, and I love it, but I wanna use this sale as an opportunity to try maybe some MAC or Clinique...really anything! I naturally have long lashes, just looking for a mascara that will really darken them and add volume, with no clumping or flaking. What mascaras do you recommend buying from Mascara Madness? What ones are you going to buy!?  Thanks beauties

little bumps around face
I have a lot of bumps around my face.. I'm not sure if they are all just clogged pores, but they have been getting more and more recently especially around my cheeks. Is it due to dirty makeup brushes-if I switched to just using the beauty blender would that make it better? as well, I use clay masks but they don't seem to make much of a difference. I use an oil cleanser, and exfoliate weekly. No matter how smooth my skin is, the bumps are always there

Foundation/Found Color
OK I don't know if its just me or everyone is has issue find a foundation that not only feels great on their skin but also is the ACTUAL color OF THEIR SKIN! I live in a small town so it is extremely hard for me to find good high end foundations - we do have a Sears which has clinique, and Shoppers which has Nyx and smash box ext. But the problem comes with the undertones being too pink or too yellow! Benefits are ALL to yellow in their under tone, SmashBox is like pink on me, Clinique *which I own the Stay Matte in 08 Golden Neutral* isn't horrible in under tone but is a little to light for my skin! It also has been cracking and flaking through out the day and driving me nuts. I tried powders, creams, liquids, foams, sprays everything and anything to just try and get something that is natural looking but still hides everything i want.  Does anyone have any suggestions on what foundation they like, and how they found their color online? and how to match yourself as people who work in the beauty area's I'm in couldn't match me well at all!      Thanks xo !

In need of a skincare makeover...
Hey guys, I'm to the point where I am about to give up. My face is SUPER sensitive and gets irritated with the littlest things. Every single cleanser I have used has left my face feeling tight and stripped, but then my skin never wants to absorb the lotions that I try to put on. So I feel like my skin is combo, sensitive and dehydrated. This results in constant acne; never cystic acne, but just pimples all over. I'm a senior in HS and it is honestly embarrassing to go out in public. I was looking at the Belif Skincare line, but I'm hoping that someone can help me. Anything is welcome!

Always Have One Pimple On Cheek
I have normal-dehydrated skin, and have never had a problem with acne. Lately I have been getting one sole pimple in the middle of either of my cheeks. When I have one on the left cheek, as soon as it goes away I get one on my right cheek. I can't figure out what is causing them. I change my bed sheets once a week and I never go to sleep without properly cleansing. Do I need to change my pillowcases more often? Any hypotheses or advice will help! Thanks

We're blabbing about everything else these days, I figured I'd check in and see what people are watching when it comes to TV shows and movies!   It would be foolish to think that this thread could remain spoiler free, so let's be courteous to one another and be sure to spoiler your spoilers.

So please take care if you're going to go dropping spoiler bombs.    Anywho... I just saw the movie PHOENIX last night and it was absolutely spectacular. Like Academy Award spectacular.

Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil?
So I received a deluxe sample of this from one of those VIB/VIB Rouge promo codes. I am pretty sure this broke me out horribly about 2-3 weeks ago, my skin is still recovering. I started breaking out in little bumps all over my cheeks as well as some painful cystic pimples. The FAB radiance pads are really helping, but I was wondering if anyone else had a bad reaction to this? If so, did you end up figuring out what ingredient in this you don't react well with? I just don't want another break out like this again!   http://www.sephora.com/soothing-cleansing-oil-P387 642?skuId=1642545&icid2=search_search_p387642_imag ...

Masks "sink" into pores
Okay, this isn't a problem (I don't think) but I'm hoping someone can help explain it to me. Anytime I use a mask on my face - usually some kind of clay - once it's dried it looks as though it's sunk into my pores. Even dry, it's a different color on my nose and chin, where my pores are larger and more prominent. But when I wash it off, there's no mask residue left behind. Is it soaking up oil? Does this mean it's working?   Thanks!

HALL OF FAMER TrysBeautyItems / HALL OF FAMER HALL OF FAMER / replied
A clay mask does tend to dry differently in coloring, from when applied. Clay will soak up oil and draw stuff out.   Which mask are you referring to?  see post

Accutane Cleanser and Moisturizer
Hey everyone!   I have an appointment with a dermatologist this weekend and I will hopefully be getting Accutane. I have been on it before but never took it properly or completed an entire course hence why I still suffer mild acne and breakouts I will ask for it this time and do it properly for the entire course, and hopefully kick my acne to the curb for good.   Another problem is I am a product junkie and I am CONSTANTLY switching my skincare products. (Also why I have no idea what my skin type is anymore. Extremely acne prone but also get dry and flaky easily. Ugh. )   I am looking for cleanser/moisturizer recommendations for something I can use pre-Accutane, while on Accutane and post-Accutane! I know it's a tall order, but I just want to find my holy grails and stick to them. Accutane makes your skin thin and extremely sensitive and dry as well because it reduces oil production in your skin! I am also very sensitive to fragrances.   THANK YOU!
