Sensitive red skin soaks up foundation
Help! For years the only foundation that has worked for me is Bare Minerals matte and either my skin is getting used to it or my pregnancy hormones are in overdrive since it's starting to make my pores look larger now and starting to cake after a few years of use.   I have red sensitive skin with acne scars and large pores. My skin tends to soak up my makeup throughout the day if it's NOT Bare Minerals and then I break out. I can usually use any powder on top. I always moisturize and use a primer beforehand.   What is a good foundation and primer that I can use for my skin? I've tried Nars, Urban Decay Naked, and MAC foundations but I always come back to Bare Minerals Matte. Any suggestions on primer, too?   Currently using: Bare Minerals Primer, Bare Minerals Matte Finish Foundation, Nars Powder Foudation for powder or Halo Hydrating Powder.

Best liquid and powder foundation for oily skin?
Hi there, I need suggestions on liquid & powder foundations that have a matte finish, that are best for oily skin and don't cause breakouts.   More about my skin: I have yellow undertones, dark circles underneath my eyes (not extremely dark), I also have a few blemishes on my skin, & throughout the day I mainly get oily on my tzone.   So far I have tried Tarte (not a fan of the powder) and Kat Von Ds Lock it liquid foundations, which so far I like but I like to try new things. I don't use primer, I have tried the Benefit flawless, and the smashbox primer which I didn't like. I felt like it made my skin more oily. So if you have suggestions on primers or concealer for my dark circles that'd be great !!

Please suggest a powder foundation
Hi BT Buddies!! Here is my dilemma--I have used Jane Iredales pressed and loose minerals, I like both, but the pressed just doesnt give me enough covereage. I want a pressed foundation that gives medium/buildable coverage. I haven't tried BM Ready yet, but I did use the loose in Fairly Light. I recently tried the IT Cosmetics one and like it but it was too yellow so back it went. I need a fair with COOL undertones--no yellow. I have combination skin, tends to get oily T zone... I  welcome any suggestions! Thanks in advance!

Q. MUFE Duo Mat vs. Too Faced Amazing Face powder foundation?
Hi! I had a question about these two powder foundations. I have PCOS, so I have EXTREMELYYYY oily skin, large pores, and acne/acne scarring. I don't like wearing liquid foundations, and I've heard good reviews on these two products, but mostly the MUFE Duo Mat, as it had more reviews. Which one of these two products would be better for my oily skin? I currently use the Mac Studio Fix powder plus foundation, and it makes me oily within half an hour, I hate it!

Estee Lauder Double Wear
Hi There - I'm currently using the estee lauder double wear foundation in Ecru 1n2, however I realize now its too light for my skin tone. I did the color IQ in sephora back in January and was matched to 1Y07, and i found that the estee lauder match to that code was Fresco 2C3. Just by looking at the Fresco shade i know it might be too pink for my skin tone. I am definitely neutral even though I find the veins in my wrists quite blue. My face has some pink undertone but id like to match my foundation to my neck and it is definitely more neutral and not pink. Looking for suggestions on what shades you might think would work for me? I understand the "7" is a medium shade. I was looking at the desert beige 2n1, or the dawn beige 2w1 or the rattan 2w2. thank you!!

Foundation + Acne Question
Hello! My name is Amanda, and I needed a little advice on foundation. Since I have acne prone sensative skin I normally do not wear liquid foundation.  I usually wear a Maybelline powder as the main base on my face. I previously used Revlon's foundations and they broke me out like crazy! Now, I am interested in Bareminerals new liquid foundation.  I'm hoping that since it's my Bareminerals, it will be gentle on the face. Has anyone had any bad experinces with breaking out from this? Or any recommendations on foundations that haven't caused acne in general? Thanks!!

Let's talk about matte foundations.
So, for years I've been chasing that youthful glow, but now given the stellar contouring and highlighting products out there, I think I'd like to try some matte finishes with them. You know, velvety. Any recommendations on what to try?   Oh…adding…my skin runs a bit dry and is fair with some freckles. Generous coverage would be a plus.

Guerlain Meteorite + talc
So tomorrow, I was going to buy Lingerie de Peau & try the Meteorite in stores to see if I like them enough to buy them. BUT, I think I took for granted that because this is such a high end product, it did not contain talc. But it does! I am shocked. I'm not paying 60+$ for some pretty pearls made of talc.    Is this just me or what? I never had problem with talk, and I wouldn't mind it too much if it was a 25$ powder, but for the price I'm paying, it better be talc free. Is is just me or if sometimes, luxury brands are a little behind in terms of ingredients and all?   What are your thoughts?

Best blush brush
I've been fairly lucky in finding HQ brushes in my go-to blushes. They've held up nice, don't shed and blend nicely.   But I just bought a CHANEL blush recently and the brush is GARBAGE and now I'm looking for a good brush.   I only use powder blushes, but could use a recommendation of something I could find at either Sephora or at a department store - I'm not interested in ordering online from Japan or Korea or something along those lines.    Whaddaya got ladies and gents?
