Revlon Colorstay vs MUFE
Is anyone familiar with Revlon colorstay foundation?  Ive heard good things about it, especially for us with oil/combo skin.  I'm currently using MUFE Matte Velvet in color 15.  I'm wondering what color to buy the Revlon in.  I hate buying and returning colors for drugstore foundations, seems so wasteful.   Thanks!!

I decided to go with this foundation and was told that 330 Bisque N is slightly darker and cooler but would still work. What other shade should be just right for me?

Torn between Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H and Lancome Nude Miracle
Hi girl!   Two weeks ago I came across one of my favorite YouTube video bloggers talking about the Lancome Teint Idole UItra 24H foundation and was skeptical about buying it. I researched it and only read really great things about. Especially from girls with the same skin problems/concerns as me. I also just recently received a sample of the Lancome Nude Miracle Foundation and fell in love with it. So this is where my dilemma is.. Which one do I get and what is the difference between the two?   My skin is combination in the summer and more on the dry side in the colder months. Very acne/blemish prone.   I hope someone can help me understand the difference between the two and what they actually offer.   Thanks!

favorite BB cream?
Hey everyone! I wear Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation everyday. I'm only 16, so sometimes I feel like it's a bit too much for me. I'm looking to switch to a BB cream. Since ELDW has great coverage, it's important to me that my BB cream isn't too light in coverage as I've found some BB creams to be. I have a few birthmarks that I like to cover along with some redness around my nose area. Can anyone recommend a BB cream for me to try?

Blush Madness
Okay Beauties,   When I bought the Tarte pin-up girl palette it unlocked a level of blush craziness in me that I'd never imagined possible.  The only problem is I don't know how to pick out blush for myself.     How do you find a color that looks good on you? Are there any brands that are particularly good?

Makeup for flash photos! HELP!
It doesn't seem to matter makeup I wear... I ALWAYS show up stark white in flash photos - and yes, I've tried taking them at all different distances. I'm kinda fair as it is. Light skin with really warm undertones. I'm not sure if its a blush I'm using, a bronzer, a setting powder? I usually use Nars Sheer Glow or Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, MAC MSF Natural, whichever bronzer I feel like using (either the Anastasia contour kit or NYC sunny bronzer), and a Nars blush. I also always use Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. Any suggestions on what could be causing me to look like a corpse in photos/product recommendations to solve my issue?

best foundation for SENSITIVE SKIN- preferably little to no dimethicone
Which foundations have you guys liked for sensitive skin. Sephora discontinued my favorite Lorac foundation, it was heaven sent for my sensitive and acne prone skin.   I am not using Hourglass foundation with a brush. In store they matched my skin but now the secretary at work said it looked too orange on my skin! How embarrassing...so the search begins anew,   Any other suggestions? I need a good pale-with yellow undertone similar to Lorac with medium to full coverage for acne prone skin?   And go! Thanks

Ligher shade of foundation?
I am using Becca in Olive. In the summer it was great, but my skin is a little lighter now and it makes me look like I put tanner on. Will Buttercup work if I'm just a tad lighter? I also use CoverFX in G50, which seems to be a good match, but I like to mix it up and the coverage Becca gives is great. Thanks!

Make Up ForEver Full Cover Concealer
Hello, I am currently using the Full Cover Concealer from MUFE in No.7 Sand and it was great during the summer time. And now, when we hits colder months in Canada, the concealer still do its job in terms of concealing and long-lasting and here comes the problem; the concealer look dried up and a bit caked on. I have tried mixed a little bit of the Diorskin Star Foundation with it to increase the "blendability" for the concealer. Afterward, it does made the blending nice and easy but it was not very skin-like. Now, I do moisturize well with Fresh Lotus Face Cream and Dior Hydralife Sorbete Serum. My skin is exfoliated with Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid as well as Clarisonic before hand so no dry patches whatsoever.   Now, can beauty experts suggest some tips and tricks make the concealer look skin-like while maintaining the full full full coverage of the concealer?

Q. highlighting/contouring/foundation help!!
Hi guys! I currently use Estee Lauder Double Wear liquid foundation. Over that, I highlight using Revlon PhotoReady concealer and a pharmacy brand powder bronzer (not sure of the name). I love makeup and have the application skills down. I even use a professional makeup mirror with special lighting that leaves my makeup looking great. I also use setting powder and a setting spray. However, when I get to school, you cannot tell that I highlighted or contoured. In fact, my foundation looks splotchy where I applied the highlighter. Should I not apply the foundation where I am going to highlight (under eye triangle)? Why doesn't it look good in school- but seems to look great in most other places? My school has fluorescent lighting, but there is another girl in my school who uses the same highlighter and bronzer and hers looks flawless all day! I would love any tips or suggestions you may have! I've attached some pictures  of what my makeup looks like  right after application. Thank you!

BECCA Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector: Not weather proof?
I didn't exactly know what to name this post, excuse the confusion. Here's what happened:   During the OH SO GREAT VIB Sale, I bought a few itmes (cologne, perfume, highlights) and added a few samples and BI Point Perks that I wanted to try. One of those samples was the Becca Ever-Matte PPP. I have never had luck with other primers (I have extremely oily skin) besides the NYX Pore filler, but as a VIB, I wanted to continue to give Sephora all my money without having to travel to Target or Ulta for just a primer Lol... Well... When I decided to use the sample, it was a bit more chunky than expected. I chalked it up to the weather. I put it on... felt a tingle... then my skin tightening... As I wait for it to dry a bit, I go and reach for my foundation... and as soon as I look in the mirror, my face is GHOSTLY white and dry! I wiped it all off with a cleansing wipe but now my face really burns and still feels very tight. You know that feeling when you have a cleansing mask on? Yeah, not very comfortable. Has anyone else had this happen???
