Just got home from Christmas Shopping to a pretty little palette waiting in my mailbox! I know some were curious and wanted to see swatches, so I made sure to take some pictures. Once I get to play with it I'll come back with a review! Edit: The small tube next to the palette is a mini Clear Brow Gel!
I wear colorstay revlon make up and it is really nice. But I do not like how on my nose, upper lip area and on my chin it looks really heavy. What can i do to make it look better. I am a beginner at makeup and have oily, acne prone skin. I also don't know what kind of brush type is best. I use an elf liquid make up brush as of right now it is flat.
Hello ladies (and gents!) I'm in the market for a new foundation. I have been using Diorskin Nude, and I have no qualms with it, but I do think I could do better. I decided to go outside of the realm of Sephora purely for research purposes, and now I'm at a crossroads. Here are the two I'm interested in/curious about: Guerlain Parure de Lumière Armani Luminous Silk I'm very fair, and I'm looking for a light-medium coverage foundation that isn't too fluid and isn't liquid-to-powder (like HG Immaculate). I want it to do the job, so I don't want "invisible" foundation that just melts into my face without a trace, but I don't want it to be very heavy or cakey. If it smells nice, that's a plus! Feel free to recommend others as well. Sorry for the lengthy post (and my being so picky!) Any guidance would be much appreciated!
Is tarte discontinuing maracuja foundation? I've seen this a lot in the sale section at tarte's website, too... Anyone know? http://www.sephora.com/maracuja-miracle-foundation -12-hour-broad-spectrum-spf-15-P375297?skuId=14372 ...
Hey everyone! My skin is very fair and I am trying to find a bronzer. I have heard a lot about Benefit Hoola and the Too Faced milk chocolate bronzer. But my question is which one of these is lighter in color?
I was swirling my powder brush in my Guerlain Meteorites and a lone ball jumped out of my tin and into the sink! OMG, nooooooooooo!!! So I picked up the little bugga, and put him on a kleenex to dry. I can't even think about putting him back in my tin with the clean balls. But I also can't bear to think about throwing him in the trash. He is a lone ranger sitting on the counter. He is white and sparkly btw.
I'm looking to buy a new blush. I'm very pale with freckles and a warm/peachy undertone. I'm a "spring," if that means anything. My problem is that my cheeks are often colored on their own. I found out they pretty much exactly match Benefit Coralista when I bought that blush and wondered why nothing was showing up. I use it to round out the color on my cheeks and make it look intentional, or to add back natural flush when I use BB cream. My problem is sometimes my cheeks look TOO pink on their own, especially when irritated. I'm looking for a blush that might give me a flush of color, but not make me look clownish (like Orgasm does), or even one that could tone down the pink when my skin is irritated. Does anyone have a suggestion? I'm not even sure where to start. Blush isn't my thing, but I'd like to branch out. Thanks!
So, I bought the BareMinerals Crystallized Set when it was in the sale section a few days ago, and I went to go see if was still there so I could review it - and Sephora has it for full price now! Do you think it was put in the sale section by accident? In any case, I was extremely happy to have snagged it on sale. http://www.sephora.com/crystalized-full-face-colle ction-P383035
http://www.sephora.com/beauty-in-bloom-P384728 Just saw this new set! It's so pretty!!! I think it's absolutely perfect for spring. Plus everything is full sized! The eyeshadow duo looks like it goes with the new color the year perfectly and all the colors are so bright and happy and spring-like. This is going on my "need" list for 2013!
I have super oily skin and lots of breakouts, and my skin is very sensitive and prone to redness. I have tried just about every mattifying primer and foundation and nothing really seems to work. I don't really like mattifying lotions because they tend to make me red and too dry around my blemishes. I like the MUFE Mat Velvet foundation and with the right primer I think it could be perfect. The other problem is that no matter how much I exfoliate or moisturize before applying my makeup, my blemishes always get dry and crusty looking after my makeup has been on a few hours or so. So my makeup wears off/slides around everywhere else on my face and gets patchy and crusty around my zits. I am so frustrated because I can't find anyone else talking about this issue. It seems like people who are super oily don't have the flaky blemishes issue, and people with acne aren't as oily as I am. Please help! What would you recommend?
Has anyone tried Garnier's BB cream yet? If so what do you think? How does it compare to the BB creams Sephora sells? UPDATE: Ok so I bought Garnier's BB cream but after about two weeks I returned it. The plus: it doesn't have as much shimmer as the other ones I've tried and the price isn't bad. It doesn't say anywhere that it has SPF in it but I checked Garnier's website to verify that it has SPF 15 in it. The down side: I found it very watery, it caked in lines and made my face feel and look greasy. Also, there is a picture on the box that's supposed to be actual size but it's about an inch taller than the actual tube.
I really want to try the Bobbi Brown luminous faoundation. Unfortuantely not available in stores near me and it's not included in the color IQ. According to the Bobbi Brown website Alabaster is paler than porcelain. But on the sephora website porcelain is listed first. Does anyone know which is the paler shade? Im extremely pale (nars Siberia is too dark) and I've heard that alabaster is one of the palest shades availabale. Does anyone know? Thanks!
My biggest struggle is finding a foundation, tinted moiturizer and bb cream in my shade/ undertone(yellow). I was hoping someone would help me find a tinted moisturizer or bb cream that has yellow undertones. A lot of the times, they oxidize, and make me look orange or red. I have oily skin and as a reference, I wear shade 153 in MUFE HD foundation. And that color IQ system is somewhat helpful but is very limiting. I am sure that those cant possibly be the only foundations I can wear. So PLEASE help me!!!
Hey everyone, I recently purchased the NARS bronzer/blush duo in Orgasm/Laguna. I absolutely loveeee the colors! But I can't pick up any of the bronzer with my brush! I have no problem with the blush, I use my angled blush brush from bare minerals. However, with the bronzer side, i tried using my small powder brush from sephora collection (the one that was part of the black friday deals, sparkly pink handle, it was part of a three pack) and it barely picked up any product. Then I decided to try using my bare minerals flawless application face brush (I didn't think it would work, but I figured I'd try because I didn't have another brush to use). Can anyone suggest a brush I should be using? If anyone uses the Nars bronzer, what do you use? Thank you!!!
I'm interested in getting the Lock It Tattoo Foundation, but I'm not sure which color i should purchase. For Reference these are my current foundation colors: Laura Mercier Silk Creme in Cream Ivory Laura Mercier Creme Smooth in Warm Ivory MAC Studio Sculpt in NC15 MAC Mineralize (compact) in NC15 MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15
So I still haven't spent the $50 to get $20 off. Ive bought smaller items but for some reason I haven't been able to find the right item for this deal. I think it's comical because I don't seem to have a problem with spending money at sephora… I just want to feel like Im getting a deal on a really good item. (I don't want to waste it). Anyone else out there still have their $20 off $50?
I've been using Neutrogena make-up wipes and then I scrub my face with a cleanser. However, on days that I wear heavier make up I feel like I'm not getting it all off! It feels like the wipes remove some of it but then spread it around. Any suggestions?
I can't stand the flash back of MUFE HD anymore. I use it VERY sparingly, but still I get the flashback, and I don't think it is the SPF in my foundation. What setting powders does everyone else use? I'm looking for something that gives a good finish, controls oil, and of course, is better catered to photography. Thank you loves!
I have a very odd shaped face. My face is about as long as it is wide, My cheeks and forehead are the same width, but my jaw is skinny than the rest of my face. As far as I have tried, contouring my not-present cheek bone just won't work, any advice?
