Nars Build Your Own Pro Palette
Ok, I know that another user started 5-6 threads about Nars build your own pro palette. I'm hoping to successfully start one that won't draw as much annoyance.   I'm excited that Nars is offering a custom option! I remember a past thread about building your dream Nars blush palette. It's now a reality! You can choose more than blush though and there are two palette sizes.   Choices   So, so many color choices and you can buy replacements and/or additional individual colors to switch in and out of your palette. The cost is not cheap, but if you love Nars and you know the palette will get used a lot it becomes an investment. There is a small price break which is good. For instance, blushes cost $21 vs. $30, duo eyeshadows $25 vs. $36.   I haven't ordered a custom palette, but if I did it would look like this. Colors are listed in the screenshot above.

Irish Redface - A Coverage Dilemma
I have fantastic skin. It's really great, it's soft, it's clear, I have adorable freckles and a natural glow. Thus, I don't do foundation. Foundation takes away from my naturally awesome skin, and highlights any texture imperfections that may arise(puns). I have been rocking BB cream for a while now, and experimenting with different brands and their levels of coverage. For example, I found that Tarte goes on a little too much like regular foundation for my tastes, and doesn't absorb into my skin in the lotion-y fashion that I love in a BB cream. I am starting a new job soon, and, while it didn't matter at my old job, I would really like to be able to look composed at the new one, despite my horrible affliction of "Irish Redface". Whenever I feel any kind of emotion, I am instantly flushed. Agitated, stressed, annoyed, excited, have a headache: REDFACE.   Sooo my question is, what can I use that will control my vibrant face colors without just totally covering up my actual face? Would a CC cream be light enough to still make my skin look and feel like skin while camouflaging my red moments? Should I try a combination of products, putting BB cream everywhere, and supplementing with extra coverage on just my cheeks?

Foundation/Primer HELP!!!!
Ladies, PLEASE help me! This is what foundation does every day. I could take up an entire page listing the primers and foundations I have tried and they ALL do this to me. Please help me figure out what I need to do differently.  I am currently using MUFE MatVelvet and MUFE Correcting Primer for Redness. It goes on beautifully, but after about an hour this is how it looks.

Can I apply liquid or cream highlighters ontop of a powder foundation?
Or can powder only be the "last" layer. I wear MaC studio fix 80% of the time as foundation but I recently fell in love with the becca highlighters. I like the cream/liquid rose gold over the powder since that one is more shimmery. Can I apply this over my mac studio fix or will it not sit/last?    Thanks.

Picking a new Foundation!
Hi all,   I am looking into a new foundation.  I am currently using the Clinique Stay-Matte Oil-Free Foundation.  I like to change my foundation up every year. I just like to try different ones.   I am going into my closest Sephora store this weekend (which is like 2-3 hours away) and wanted some input on which samples to get before getting the original size.   So far I have on my list is:   Too Faced Born This Way MUFE Ultra HD Foundation UD Weightless Ultra Foundation   I have combination skin. I have heard many good things about these foundations I listed and thought I'd try samples.  I am looking for something that doesn't make me oily by noon-time and that lasts at least 8 hours for my regular work hours which I am sure many of you can understand!   Any other suggestions? I don't want to overload on foundation, but if there is another 1-2 other recommendations you all might have would be good.    Or even inputs on the list I wrote out and if those are okay to chose from and what you guys thought about it yourselves when using it!

Looking for the perfect foundation
I recently paid a visit to my local sephora and got a few sample foundations that I like but would rather try one that other people with more experience recommend. Unfortunately I don't remember my skintone number but one of the sample foundations I liked the most and matched the best was MUFE y365. Has anybody used MUFE in y365 that can recommend a different foundation and in what shade?

So I'm having trouble finding a foundation that looks smooth over my skin. I have bumpy texture over my nose. Its very small bumps that look exactly like my skin color. Its always been there since I can remember and I've been exfoliating and cleansing, but it doesn't go away. Can anyone tell me what it is and how to treat it for smooth skin all over. Btw, my skin is really smooth on the rest of my face, it's just my nose.

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.

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.

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)
