Korean skincare products for oily skin?
I am making this thread entirely about Korean skin care products to be used for oily skin. After my daily skin routine every morning, my skin immediately gets greasy after applying toner, moisturizer and cetaphil's moisturizing cream with rose water and glycerin under my eyes. I use Laneige's pore control bb cushion but it still makes my skin oily.  Are there any good Korean face mists or skin care that hydrates my skin but gives a matte texture at the same time ? What are some good steps or routines that I should change? I am annoyed with having to go through 1-2 blotting sheets every day

Info on irritants?oil-alochol? on the Burburry Cahmere Flawless Soft Matte Foundation
Hi, hope you can help!   Is the Burburry Cahmere Flawless Soft Matte Foundation oil-free? Also, do you know if this foundation is friendly to sensitive skin that has mild rosacea? Love the foundation yet have noticed my skin does not feel "happy" since I started using it. I have been trying many new products in a short time frame so not sure if the foundation is the culprit or something else. Any info. you have on this foundation and reactions with sensitive skin would be so very appreciated! Many thanks!

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation Shade
HI! I'm looking for my shade in the Estee Lauder double wear foundation and concealer. I currently wear MUFE HD foundation in shade 117 and HD concealer in shade 4. If you know what that would translate to in the Estee Lauder world, I would immensely appreciate it. Thanks!

Hyperpigmentation/dark spot concerns
I have dark spots on my face, especially on my upper lip.  It really bothers me as it looks like I have hair there or I have a dirty face.  So far nothing has worked in lightening them and they get much darker in the summer, even when I wear susncreen.  I've tried prescription hydroquinone, light therapy laser.  Hydroquinone didn't help, the laser treatment did for a bit, but they all came back.  Does anyone know of a product that can help in getting rid of them?  And also a sunscreen that can hopefully help avoid getting them any darker in the summer?

Foundation Shade Help
Hi!    I am looking to try the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation as I've heard amazing things about it! However my local Sephora doesn't carry Estee Lauder cosmetics (only skincare-boo) so I'm not able to get properly color matched/sampled. I'm willing to buy a full size, but I am not sure which shade to go with. I'm very pale, current foundation is Tarte Amazonian Clay in Fair Beige....and with most foundations I tend to wear the lightest or second lightest shade. Any help/advice would be amazing!!!!   -Tanya

Suggestions for Fine, Flat Hair
I have very fine hair that is pretty long (halfway down my back). It never really holds a curl. I have to wash it every day, and by the end of the day it usually looks stringy and flat. I'm currently using Biolage shampoo and Humectress conditioner. After washing, I blow dry and wear it down. I'm interested in trying some new products and tools (my blowdryer is actually my mom's and I need one to take to college with me next year). I've tried the Drybar Texas Tea shampoo and conditioner and they seemed to work. Otherwise, I'm kind of at a loss for what to use. There's just so many products out there! Any suggestions or advice? Thanks so much!

Help! I cant figure out a way to apply Makeup forever foundation
I have the Makeup forever hd foundation. Is there some sort of primer ( water based i believe it'd have to be right?) or some kind of brush. The foundation when i put it on just sits on top of my skin . Particularly noticeable on my cheeks,nose and sometimes my eyebrows. I moisturize before and sometimes add a face oil. The oil sometimes help but not terribly. I have dryer skin so is this not the foundation i should be using? I like a foundation with coverage because my face can get red so i need coverage

White cast from flash with every foundation?
I have tried flash testing from my iPhone camera. Not using the the front face camera. The actual camera from my phone.  All the foundations cause a white cast to my face. I've tried MUFE HD foundation , smashbox 15 hour , milani 2 in 1, kat Von d lock it , Mac face & body, Giorgio Armani luminous silk.     My mosturizor doesnt have SPF in it. I have tried these foundations with nothing else under or over it to just test the flash back on the foundations. Everything seems to cause a white cast. What am I doing wrong? These foundations shouldn't be causing a white cast.

Non-matte foundation
Hello...I am looking for a foundation. I currently use LM tinted moisturizer. I am looking for a little more coverage. Here's the thing....I like creamy or moisturizing. I find matte too drying. I would prefer no scent, but not mandatory. I have normal, slightly dry, skin, and I don't want a "tan" look. Anything creamy, on the lighter side that feels soft and moisturizing? Medium coverage, and no illuminating to it. Thanks for your suggestions. Lisa
