Introducing Wanderlust Powder Foundation!
Hi Beauty Talkers! We're delighted to welcome the newest addition to our multitasking makeup essential family, Wanderlust Powder Foundation.  We’re so excited to share our journey in creating this product.   Why powder foundation?   Co-founder Divya Gugnani: Pretty much immediately after we launched our Flash Focus Hydrating Foundation we got calls, emails, social media posts, and a barrage of inquiries about when we would have a powder foundation. A powder foundation? I didn’t get it. I hadn’t used powder foundation on my face since I was 16 and struggling with t-zone issues and teenage acne. But Lindsay was a believer….   Co-founder Lindsay Ellingson: I've always used powder foundation to mask my hyperpigmentation which, for me, is caused by melasma. I've struggled with it for years. When we launched Wander Beauty it became my mission to develop a talc-free powder that would cover imperfections without looking cakey, my goal was to create a powder foundation that actually looks like skin!   But really, is it full coverage?   LE: The first thing you will notice about our powder is the luxurious ultra-fine feel which translates to the most natural looking, flawless complexion. It's so lightweight on your skin but highly pigmented so it doesn't feel like a mask. One swipe of our foundation and my pigmentation is covered. Our goal is to enhance your natural beauty not cover it!   But is it a multitasker? Is it an essential?   DG: At Wander Beauty we focus on creating multitasking makeup essentials and for real this is... Any special ingredients?   LE: We knew we wanted to make it talc-free so it wouldn’t look ashy or give a white cast in photos. We also enriched it with our favorite skin-loving ingredients from around the globe:   Aloe Leaf Extract (Korea) – moisturizes skin and restores suppleness Hibiscus Flower Extract (France) – evens skin tone, increases elasticity, and protects against free radical damage Honeysuckle Flower Extract (Korea) – has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties Jojoba Esters (United States) – promotes skin healing with antimicrobial properties Safflower Flower Extract (Korea) – contains linoleic acid to unclog pores and stimulate regeneration of new cells   What about the applicator? DG: I can’t stand dirty, makeup-filled sponges that break apart. So, we created an antimicrobial rubicell sponge in Korea that deposits our silky powder evenly for full coverage. It’s reusable and easy to wash with antibacterial soap and water.     How do you wear it?   DG: I wear Wanderlust in Medium on clean moisturized skin on days when I have meetings from morning to night or when I have a big event. It lasts till I take it off and gives me coverage while still looking natural. It’s my skin, only with an airbrushed filter ;-)   LE: I like to wear Wanderlust in Light as a finishing powder over our Flash Focus Hydrating Foundation stick. It's gives me just the right amount of coverage with a radiant finish.The great thing about our powder is that it's so versatile, it looks just as great as a foundation on its own for a more matte finish.     Here's the link:  http://www.sephora.com/wanderlust-powder-foundatio n-P411529?skuId=1856848&icid2=products%20grid 41152...

Your favorite green color correcting primer?
So far I was looking at Clinique's Redness Solutions Daily and Smashbox's Photo Finish Color Correcting Primer in obviously green. Clinique's primer (by reviews) doesn't seem to be as popular as Smashbox's, but the reviews seem to be the same between each product. A lot of people are saying that the products either don't fully correct the redness, or cover very little. I have mild rosacea and have very pale skin. I use the palest foundation color. I don't mind if the products don't cover up the redness completely because I plan to apply a full face of makeup after the primer anyways, but I am curious of the opinions of these two products, OR if there is another green primer (doesn't have to be in Sephora) that is really good. I also care a lot if the primer doesn't mess with my normal routine, as in, it doesn't make my liquid foundation (Bobbi Brown) harder to spread, or it doesn't last throughout the day. My redness is between mild and medium, so any recommendation that covers that greatly will be appreciated! Links to both primers: http://www.sephora.com/redness-solutions-daily-pro tective-base-spf-15-P201441?skuId=1066737&icid2=pr ... http://www.sephora.com/photo-finish-color-correcti ng-foundation-primer-P78811?skuId=1350024&icid2=pr ...

Sephora Collection 10HR Wear Perfection Foundation Question
I'm using SEPHORA COLLECTION 10HR Wear Perfection Foundation.  While I'm loving the long-wearing, easily-blendable, "second skin" benefits of it, I'm not liking how long it takes to clean my foundation brushes after using this foundation.   I use Sephora Collection Pro Foundation #47 brush to apply this foundation (personal preference).  I clean these brushes (I have seven of them) with baby shampoo once a week (hence having seven of them).   Cleaning this foundation from these brushes takes much too long!  I spent a lot of money for these foundation brushes!! I'm scared that one day I won't be able to fully clean my brushes of this foundation and they'll be permanently stained!   I started soaking the used foundation brushes in a baby shampoo/water combination for about 20 minutes (just the bristles) to loosen up the foundation a bit.  It only slightly helps with cleaning.   Any tips or tricks or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

What shade should I get for the Kat Von D liquid foundation?
So I dont have a way to get to a physical store easily, so a lot of my foundation purchases have been guesses and then returned for the right one.   My color IQ is IR09, but I tend to get a lighter shade (so i guess IR08), due to every foundation oxidizing on my skin.   I tried to search foundations through the shade but none of hers comes up except the concealer.    Help??

UD All Nighter -shade match?
  Since I can't get to a Sephora for awhile, here's the issue I'm having:   In the UD All-Nighter foundation, I tried on the shade 9 at Ulta. It looked like a great match. Bought it. Haven't worn it all day yet so I don't know if it will oxidize.   My ColoriQ matches at 1y09 and 2y10. The match for UD All Nighter is 7.75! If you look at the chart 1y09 and 2y10 aren't that dissimilar. Could I really be that many shades off?

Bobbi brown foundation options and colors
I am looking for a liquid foundation. I have never used a liquid foundations before. Currently, I am using just a BB cream and in the past tried powder forms like BareMinerals. I am in my mid 30s and need some coverage. The Bobbi Brown BB that I am currently using is great, but the coverage is not enough. I am looking into getting a liquid foundation from Bobbi Brown, but not sure which one is the right one for me. My skin is on the dry side and I have visible sunspots + enlarged pores on the nose area. I like Bobbi Brown because my skin has yellow undertone. My color IQs are 3Y04 and 3Y06 depending on the season. I am currently using the color Light of the Bobbi Brown BB cream. Is the Moisture Rich the way to go? And color wise Beige or Warm sand? I would love to hear all suggestions. Thanks in advance!

Compact Powder for Combo Skin?
Hello all,   I'm going to try and explain this as best I can but I'm looking to see if anyone has any compact powder suggestions. Preferably something with more coverage than just  "blotting powder".    Something to use throughout the day to make my makeup look freshly applied, control oil (t zone), and just look over-all normal.    I've noticed powder that isn't so dry applies better. (if that even makes sense) Is this called something specific?    Thanks in advance!
