So, as the title says, I did the Color IQ and got matched as shade 3Y08. However, this shade doesn't show me a MUFE match. I want to get the HD foundation, but I don't know what shade I would be. Thanks for your help.
I am putting together a basket for a local fund raiser auction. It is a beauty essentials basket. Any suggestions of some can't-live-without beauty products? It can range from beauty care to make up. Examples: Sugar lip care, benefit mascara, still lip gloss, ciate nail polish. Any suggestions would be great. Cost for each product needs to remain around $20 or under
Hey ladies! I've got sort of a strange question, hopefully someone could help me with...Whenever I use any type of lipstick, lip crayon, lip stain, etc., it goes on normal, then after about an hour or so, it starts turning very bright, almost neon. Does anyone know why that happens and/or how to stop it from happening? Thanks ladies!
Hey Ladies! I am looking into Urban Decay's Revolution Lipstick but cannot decide on a shade! I've looked at multiple swatches on different blogs and (Sephora) discussion boards, but cannot settle on any one shade. I have pretty light, neutral skin tone (I recently was color matched to 3Y03 or Urban Decay's Foundation in 2.0). Recently, I have been attracted to bright pinks and corals, but am looking to venture out. I haven't gotten the nerve to try reds permanently just yet as I have not found a sample of a red that looks good on me. So I'm thinking somewhere in the mauve/plum range, but not too dark... Does anyone have any suggestions or favorites that they swear by? And possibly suggest a matching lip liner by Urban Decay as well. Thank you ladies!
Hello! I have bad hyper pigmentation marks on my legs from cuts and whatnot, and I was wondering what products to invest in for flawless legs this summer! Im african american, so we are more prone to hyper pigmentation...any tips/recommendations are appreciated
What are some good eyebrow pencils or products for thin eyebrows? The front of my eye brows are really thin. I find that I have to draw on too much with pencils and my eyebrows start to look bad. Any suggestions? I am currently using Anastasia brow wiz.
Hi, I just started shaving my face and I was wondering if there are any guidelines for doing it. Like the best time to do it or if I should wait a certain amount of time before applying makeup. Also I usually do it before I shower is that ok? Thanks
So ive been trying to find the right shade for me in the GA silk foundation but need help matching. Currently i wear the color Santa Fe in the Nars Sheer Glow. I feel like the 5.5 in the GA would be a good match for me but am unsure. Any suggestions?
I've never been a big lipstick girl, but I do like a little subtle color. I find glosses too sticky/shiny without enough hydration. Burt's bees tinted lip balm is my favorite thing in the world but it's ruined after one sunny afternoon in the park. I've been using regular lip balm with nars satin lip pencils to get my color fix, but I feel like there has to be a good one-step solution. Help?
Hi, I am 24 years old and have many skin concerns and am obsessed with beauty products and reviews since I have been disabled so it passes the time. However, I'm not getting any direct answers to a good skin routine to up my skin game. All my life I have true oily and olive skin. So I am a bit blemish prone..but that was only to pimples. Now I am suffering from pores on my cheeks and chin which is odd. And know I have combination skin (shiny t zone drier cheeks) I am now better to know to try out skin care products in starter kits to see what is best. I am also concerned with aging and due to insomnia have dark circles under my eyes (which products have been helped) so I'm looking for aging products especially a night mask that don't make me break out. I always used sacylic face wash and spot treatment for pimples and clinique dramatically different moisturizing lotion but it turns my face red. I currently have tried the pore no more to go kit by dr brandt. with their triple peptide eye cream. I use charchol face wash and the biore face scrub 2 a week and also do the one minute mask. I used the skin ceuticals equalizing toner but it doesn't do much. And I don't want to mix products. And the ROC 5 in 1 multi correction restoring night cream recommended makes me break out like CRAZY. I started bought the simple start for trouble free skin by shisedo mainly for the mostiurizier but I was wondering what you thought about it. I got sales of the mural black head reformer and pore reefing as well as murals acne spot fix. And I use Tree Body wash for bacne breakouts which works wonder fly. What do you believe is the best night cream for my skin and day and night routine? Especially Day?
What do you feel about this new line?? I both the trouble-free skin kit because I really just wanted the Shiseido Buki Refining Mosturizer that won the Allure award for best moisturizer for oily skin tone. But Paula's Choice reviews are horrible. And every product I look up on that website has poor reviews for everything!! What do you think??
I've been washing with Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser in the morning followed by a spray of rosewater toner and EltaMD AM moisturizer. In the evening I use Skinceuticals Purifying cleanser (which contains glycolic acid) with my Clarisonic followed by a spray of rosewater toner and EltaMD PM moisturizer. Twice a week I've been using Exfolikate in the evening - on those nights I dont use my Clarisonic. My forehead gets small bumps and breakouts and this sigificantly made it clearer and smoother. My chin was clear and breakout free as well. I've been using this regimen for about 2 1/2 weeks now and I'm starting to get dry flaky skin around my chin and mouth and also on my forehead. I'm also noticing breakouts coming back in my tzone. How can I get rid of this dry skin? Even after moisturizing my skin is still flaky. I didn't even use foundation because I knew it would make the flakes more noticable. My skin was so clear and smooth a week ago, how can I get back to that place?
I always start with Urban Decay's primer potion and then use Stila's liquid eyeliner. For the most part, the eyeliner doesn't budge for the entire day, except for right above the upper lashline. This is because I have those oily monolids and it always annoys me when I see a line of skin start to show up under my eyeliner...any tips to make the eyeliner last even longer?
I recently used UD Naked skin foundation in Shade 1 and while I liked the lightweight formula I am interested in finding something with more coverage and longer lasting. My face is a combination of dry and oily. Dry between my eyebrows and oily around my nose and on my forehead. (Any suggestions on the dry patch between eyebrows would be appreciated as well ) Should I use a b.b. cream or primer underneath? I am also interested in knowing what I should use for a concealer, I have never used one but have bags under my eyes like I am sleep deprived, and it always shows through the foundations I use. Any suggestions on a product? I would go to a Sephora location to ask but I live a few hours from the nearest one so I hoping I can get help on here! Thanks in advance for any replies!!
I am looking for a brow product that will give me natural looking brows that is easy to use with staying ability. I have medium auburn hair and fair skin. I also don't want to spend an arm and a leg for it either. I have been looking at Too Faced brow envy but now I am not so sure. Please help!
I have combination skin - quite oily in the t-zone but definitely looking dryer under the eyes as I get older (I'm 45). With summer coming I was hoping to find a great BB/CC cream. I was hoping to find one with light coverage. Currently I am wearing and loving the color match of Lancome Nude Miracle 110. If I look at the color IQ it says I'm 1R05 (I was color matched as 1R06 but I'm not quite sure about it) but I will no doubt get a little darker in the summer, despite my use of sunscreen. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!
I've read varying opinions on the topic and wanted to "ask the experts." When should under eye concealer be applied? Before foundation? After? Before applying eye makeup - or after? The makeup experts I've had do my makeup for special events have applied the products in a different order than I normally do at home. So what's the best order for application - foundation, eye makeup then concealer????
I've read so many posts about the best pore primers, but nearly everyone is talking about their oily skin and how they want to mattify it. When I use pore primers that have oil absorbing qualities, they dry my face out so badly that my foundation starts flaking off a few hours after I use it. One poster asked about this and instead of getting primer suggestions, they got moisturizing suggestions. I know how to moisturize, and why I have dry skin. Even when my face is properly moisturized, the primers will then dry it back out. I can use benefit porefessional, but it doesn't do a great job on my pores. I have tried : Kiehl's Blur, DHC Velvet Skin Coat and Pore Clarifying Cover Base, Laura Mercier, Philosophy supernatural, the new Smashbox for pores, Bare Minerals Prime Time, the regular Smashbox primers, Too Faced, Urban Decay, and I can't even remember the others. They either dry me out or are not thick enough to really fill in my pores. Any other suggestions? By the way, for anyone with oily skin and huge pores, the best pore cover I have ever found was DHC Pore Clarifying Cover Base, but it dries me out so bad.
Anyone have tips for oil control to the t-zone!? . . . I just started to use Dr. Brandt pores no more primer . . . It helps but the t-zone is still getting oily. Any suggestions for other primers? Or is it just as simple as me having to powder that area through out the day . . . which im sure is the nomral thing to do. I really don't carrying any products with me at work but it might not be a pad idea for powder. Suggestions on products ladies? Let me know!
I have been a hunt for a good foundation for a while. My skin became so sensitive I'm scared to try out new things. I need a foundation for everyday/night i do not like to buy two different foundations. I am combo/oily.. I get oily on my T-zone. I really do need help, and I prefer liquid.
So i ordered Bite 003 the minute everyone had said it was poping up and buying Has anyone else who ordered this in the US or in CANADA, not gotten a tracking number yet? i ordered soon as it popped up at 10:30 or 11:30 that morning Says its been shipped Borderfree link still just says sent to processing center... its a little annoying. any time i used to order id have my tracking number the next day... the last few times ive ordered its taken longer and longer... anyone else??
Hey everyone- First I'm terribly sorry if there is already a massive thread on here about this but I couldn't find it and my question is more specific so here it goess--- Before this brand/product was ever available online I used to drive down to Boston, Mass to the Sephora that carries Giorgio Armani's cosmetic line in store. I haven't gone for a while, but when I did, I would always obsess over "Luminous Silk" and purchased it once when I was there for a rouge event at that event there was a GA rep who matched me as a 4.25 which is the same match that the Sephora color IQ matches me with (which for me, the IQ never works out one day I am one IQ shade and the next month I'm another # so for me that isn't at all a fool proof method I'd rely on ) SOOO NOW THE --Problem WHICH IS- I had some doubts about the color that the rep at Sephora matched me with.. it just didn't "fit: SO when I got matched at Saks Fifth at the GA counter the GA counter manager seemed to clearly know her stuff seeing as she was the counter manager of GA..lol and SHE matched me as a 4.75 she was like "yep your 4.75 that's it end of story" kind of short didn't even put another shade on me to make sure...BUTT the shade seemed to match me fairly well and I ended up buying the 4.75 and used half of it and gave the rest to my mother months later because I had developed a "no foundation phase"...NOW just a few moths ago, when I was at the same Sephora that carries GA in the store....I clearly got drawn to the silk foundation again... I wanted to pick up another bottle of "luminous silk" and this awesome guy working at that Sephora told me to try the few shades out that I was unsure of, after I told him my dilemma and he even said he still gets confused about the shades.. SO..he gave me samples of shades 4.5..4.75...and 5. When I got home I put all 3 shade in swatches in a stripe on my arm and I couldn't figure out for the life of me which one had a cool/ pink undertone..or which one had a warm/yellow undertone..or which one of them had a neutral undertone,(MOST OF THE TIME FROM WORKING IN THE COSMETIC INDUSTRY A WHLE AGO AND LEARNING THIS TYPE OF STUFF, I CAN TELL WHAT UNDERTONE A FOUNDATION HAS) THE OTHER PROBLEM WAS - all three shades he gave me samples of somehow or another worked on my face as I recall but it was back in September so now I cant remember AND NOW that this stuff is online on Sephora.com, I just would like to order it online rather than having to go down to the Sephora that carries it in store CLEARLY THIS IS WHY I AM ASKING FOR YOUR HELP..LOL - one thing I know for sure is that I am in the 4-ish shade range or 5.0 because 4.5..4.75..and 5.0 worked for me a few months ago BUT then again I was matched twice as a 4.25 so I am just SO CONFUSED and hope you guys figured this out more than I have :/ MEANING- is there a certain undertone to the shades ending in .25's and .5's and .75's and so on? AND IF ANYONE USES THE SHADE 4.5 OR 4.75 OR 5.0 WHAT UNDERTONE DO YOU THINK THAT IS HAS AND WHY THAT SHADE WORKS FOR YOUR SKINCOLOR? ALLL THE HELP I CAN GET IS GREATLYYYYY APPRECIATED Thanks-- PLEASE HELP
I was colour matched to shade 127- Dark Sand last year in the MUFE Invisible Cover HD Foundation. I absolutely love this foundation- I love the coverage, the finish, etc. I am slightly more tanned than when I was matched to 127, so I'm looking for a recommendation for one shade (or even half a shade) darker in same skintone family. Thanks!
