Some Good News
I think we can all use something positive today.  So here it is:   For those of you who (like me) fell wildly, madly in love with the Charles Mallory compacts that I posted about, the prices have dropped quite a bit!    I talked about them in this thread and posted pictures:   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Face/Mixing-Loose- Powders/m-p/1853292/highlight/true#M28789   ...but they were way too expensive for me to consider.     Well, now I'm wondering if someone in the company was looking online for comments about the product, and saw our discussion.   I want the peacock one so badly!  It is STILL quite expensive, especially with the exchange rate, but the price drop has me seriously considering ordering it for my birthday.

Hi! I am in need of new makeup that i can count on! I have the oiliest of oiliest skin (especially in my T-zone) and i want to be able to control it as much as i can. But i hate looking cakey!

Anything that can keep my oils down yet keep me looking natural is what I'm looking for.    Definitely need help!   P.s. I hope this makes sense!

Foundation
Hello, I bought a Dior Foundation while vacationing in Lash Vegas. The representative "matched" my color but, it looks oranges on me. I don't have my receipt or packaging. Would I be able to exchange it for another color at the SEPHORA in my home town?

Help Wanted: Need a New Foundation!
Hey everyone, I really could use some help/advice/suggestions on this. Now that we're going to be heading into autumn and winter, I want to buy a new foundation. I normally use BB Cream Spring + Summer, and Foundation Autumn + Winter. The only problem is, I have NO idea what foundation to get. Do you have any favorites? I've been eyeing the UD Naked Skin and KVD Lock-It foundations, but I'm really open to suggestions. For reference, I have dry skin and I use Smashbox BB Cream in Fair. Thank you in advance!

original LM Silk Creme foundation replacement
I was an avid user of the original formula but sadly hate the new one. I am still looking for something with the same consistency and coverage.   My skin is dry and most things don't seem to be good for me. I use the LM hydrating primer with a serum and good moisturizer. I've tried Nars creamy compact and the Hourglass hylauronic tint foundation, but my face still feels a little dry with it on. If anyone has recommendations i would really appreciate it.   As i said, i have dry skin. To give you some type of reference to the paleness i am, i used to wear Rose Ivory for LM foundation. And i'm 23 if that makes a difference.    (also, trying not to break the bank, looking for something similar in price range as well)

I have been wanting a contour kit for months, but I want one that I can use all or most colors in the palette. I am very pale in the winter but tan in the summer. The two I have been looking at are the Kat Von D and Anastasia Beverly Hills. What are your thoughts, pros or con, suggestions?

Dear Sir/Madam, I want to know if the sephora foundation '10 hr wear perfection foundation' in the shade '22 clair light natural (P)' is still available or has this product been discontinued?

Foundation suggestions for combination, sensitive skin? Yellow undertones.. Rop
My cheeks are normal to dry, t-zone is somewhat oily. Broken capillaries on cheeks. When autumn/winter approaches my cheeks will be more dry, t-zone slightly less oily.   My skin tone is light to  medium. Neutral to warm. I do have yellow undertone but it's not super prominent. I find foundations that have a yellow undertone (as long as it's not extremely yellow) suit me better than neutral to cool.   I find foundations for oily skin are too matte for me. Dewy foundations are too rich for t-zone. I do apply a dusting or powder to my t-zone year round.    Right now I'm using Jane Iredale pressed foundation. During the summer I don't mind powder because of the humidity. The JR foundation is okay, not too thrilled with it.   Are there foundations for combination skin? I'm wondering if I use a foundation primer that is made for oily skin on my t-zone if that would help?  Brands that have foundations for yellow undertones?   Foundations I tried and didn't like: Lancome Teint Miracle and MUFE HD   Any suggestions? Thanks!

Cream/ liquid contouring help for pale skin
Hello! This is my first time posting in here so I hope this question hasn't been asked already. So about a month ago I went into Sephora looking for a contouring kit. I prefer creams only because powders do not sit well on my face. Also because I am very pale and the light powders don't show up on my face. Anyway... I purchased the Cover FX contouring kit since it was cream and had a light color that was actually lighter than my skin tone. Now I only wear makeup when I go out on the weekends. I use a contouring brush to apply my makeup and the 2 colors in the palette Ive been using are almost gone! I used it about 6 times and for almost $50 I don't feel that its worth it especially since Im only using 2/4 colors. Anyone have any other product suggestions for cream or liquid products for contouring that will give me a bit more bang for my buck? Thanks!

Luminous Setting Powder
Hello all, I am hoping someone can provide some insight on a good luminous setting powder. I had some Korres loose powder that they no longer carry that I really liked... it kept the oil at bay but was definitely not a matte finish.   I was at the store and they recommended Givenchy Prisme Libre.  Of course it was beautiful and expensive so I grabbed it, but I found that it really isn't a luminous finish,  It is definitely more matte.   I also have the Hourglass Ambient Lighting powder in Dim Light but that has a little too much pigment - I'm really looking for something that is totally sheer.     There are several other choices that claim to have a luminous finish, including the new Burberry line that I was curious about.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  Most of the powders are not carried at a store near me so I can't try them out and I really hate to return,   Your suggestions would be great!  Thank you!!!!
