I have a medium skin tone and I'm thinking of purchasing the new Benefit Cheek Parade because I don't have any blush/highlight palette yet. I have medium to dark skin though, so I'm worried that Hoola won't be useful to me as a bronzer, or the Dandelion just plain won't show. Can I use the Rockateur as a highlight? Is this palette worth it or will I just end up with colors I can't use? Would you recommend the colors here for people with medium to dark skintone? (I'm NC35, Estee Lauder Tawny) All the videos show girls with fair caucasian skin so I'm worried that even if it looks good on them, it won't on me. 😅 Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read) If you wouldn't recommend this, can you recommend me a good blush/highlight/contour palette under $75? I have combination skin that can get a bit oily so maybe powder would be a better choice.
I heard a lot about this powder but I'm not sure whether to buy it or not. I have dry skin so I like to look dewy/radiant. The shades for my foundations are MUFE ultra hd foundation 117, tarte rainforest of the sea fair light neutral, and too faced born this way pearl. Which "shade" would you reccomend? Or if this powder is not suited for dry skin, then what other powders are good? (I just want to set my makeup but not look satin or matte afterwards)
Hi! These past couple of months I have been using cheaper makeup brands. Now, my skin is starting to react badly to them. I don't break out, but my skin feels like it is burning. I am looking for face products like foundation, concealer, color correctors, and powders (translucent/setting powder and regular face powder). Brands, tips, and any other helpful advice are very much appreciated. Thank you!
Hey guys! so i was looking into these pallet's and I really like them both. I do like Becca's highlighters, but i haven't really used their blushes. Can anyone do a pros vs cons for these two pallet's for me?
Hi there! Is there an up-to-date list of silicone-free sephora products? It's been asked before, but it doesn't look like there's ever been a comprehensive answer. I'm specifically looking for foundations, concealers and primers to try for my oh-so silicone-sensitive (dermatologist-tested) skin, and for others with the same sensitivities. Thanks!
So there is this product: http://www.sephora.com/beauty-genius-clear-waterproofing-gel-P384062?skuId=1578731&country_switch=ca It says its ingredient is silicone resin. Lots of people have been saying its the best thing ever to transform any lipstick into a non transfer lip. My question is this, IS is safe if you accidently consume it? I'm not talking about like putting it on your tongue, but if you're placing it on your lips, is that safe? I was trying to look it up. It did say that it could damage your lungs if consumed but I'm not sure if its referring to the same thing? There is information on silicone and resins, lots about silica, but the answers are different... So specifically silicone resin I only found one possible article but I wanted to know if someone might know more?
Hello everyone, I want to ask advice for picking the right eyeshadow for myself. I actually own the NAKED Basics and Baked Eyeshadow (PK03) from The Face Shop and I would like to add another palette to my very small collection. I'm very much into simple eyeshadow makeup, something that I can wear on a daily basis. But I'd also want something to wear in some special occasions but again, nothing too dramatic. I was looking at NAKED 3 I really love the colours and I don't mind the pink since I've heard that the palette is subtle(pigment) compared to the first two palettes but I'm not sure if it's a great choice for myself. I'm an NC35 (yellow undertone) with a very dark brown hair and also dark brown eyes (southeast asian). Which palette's would you guys suggest? The highest I can go is $70. Thanks!
I am going to Mexico in June and I always wear a light foundation at night. Any recommendations on a foundation that won't melt off? I got married in Mexico but I wanted a fuller coverage so I know that Estée Lauder Double Wear is amazing. I also use it all the time but like I said just something lighter. TIA
Hi! I was in Sephora and got colour matched for laura mercier tinted moisturizer in the colour almond. It is a good match, a little darker than my natural skin colour. I want to purchase the nars creamy concealer but I need help choosing a colour, I was thinking maybe biscuit but I'd like a second opinion! Thanks!
I normally use the FAB cleanser for sensitive skin. It's not my holy grail by any means but it keeps my skin balanced so it's something I'm constantly coming back to. Recently however, I've noticed it's just not as hydrating as I once though it was. When I saw that Kate Somerville had this Goatmilk Cleanser coming out I was extremely anxious to try it but wanted to get some feedback before I did so. Side note: I'm also prescribed Tretinoin which I apply every other night - sometimes only 2-3x per week. It's pretty harsh on my skin, but it works when used religiously. Should I make the switch? Thanks in advance xoxo
