Moisturizer with SPF help?
Hi! I'm running out of my Dior Hydra with SPF and am looking for something new to try. Lately it's been making my face feel really oily. I tried the Boscia and I hate it. It's so runny. Any other recommendations? I'm 39 and don't wear a ton of makeup but always wear moisturizer.

When to start wearing foundation?
I've always wanted to try wearing foundation, but I don't want to put my money towards something I found out I don't need. What exactly is foundation used for? When should I start wearing it? My skin is clear most of the time, except for the occasional spot on my forehead every once in a while. Usually I would cover that pimple up with concealer, and would just see no use in wearing foundation. Please help!

Best foundation for combo/dry skin?
Hi there!   I am here to discuss, based on users' experiences, what is the best foundation for combo/dry skin. I am a 16-year-old teenager that is getting tired of drugstore foundations. It makes me look cakey, it rubs off easily and never stays on. More importantly, they don't help my skin. Due to hormonal changes, I am unfortunately leaning towards the dry territory. My eyebrows are the worst. I have brown hair, but instead of having brown eyebrows they're white from the constant flakiness around my eyebrows, in my eyebrows and eyelids. This all started once hot weather appeared. Before that, I was just pure dry during the winter. My face would burn or would have a burning sensation from dry skin. It was so bad that you could see the flakiness from miles away (exaggerating, of course). My friends kept telling about it. Way before that, I was nothing but oily. Right now, my face is a bit oily, but it's more on the dry side. As I'm writing this post, my face feels like cement but it has some oiliness going on. Any foundations out there to help my situation? I don't have a budget.

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation - June 15th!!!
OMG! Have you all heard about the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation?     It isn't out yet and launching June 15th!  I have watched and seen so many reviews on it with my favorite YouTube Beauty Girls...and it looks so flawless and it just has the best reviews.   I was on the Too Faced website, and the price shows $52.00! Which is very pricey for my budget...but would it be same price on Sephora?   I don't buy from Sephora that often.  Usually just when my foundation runs out, I like to try out different foundations.  Right now I am using the Clinique Stay Matte Foundation.  And like it so far...   Would you all switch your foundation to buy the new Too Faced Born This Way?   Any thoughts or comments?

Making suggestions to the Color IQ?
I was curious to know if there was any way to make suggestions as far as what foundations work and don't work in regards to the skin tone numbers for the Color IQ.   I took the time out to swatch each of the liquid foundations my store carried for my color (1R13) and well...yeah. These ranges go from super light yellow, to deep, everything in the middle, some have a little more red, it's just a mess. Not to mention, out of all these shades I can only wear two without looking as if my foundation is too red or to yellow (Stila Stay All Day and MUFE Face and Body).

Laura mercier please bring back original silk creme foundation! Looking for similar type of coverage
I use Laura mercier silk creme foundation and just had to buy a new bottle but i do NOT like her new updated oil free silk creme, I even tried the moisturizing too . Its not the Same coverage as the original. I feel the original was a little thicker and had better coverage. Is there another foundation brand that has similar coverage as the original silk creme foundation? I also have acne scars and I like something med to full. Nothing too full coverage as kate Von d , and that is why I use to love Laura mercier silk creme. So sad it changed. . Any suggestions would be great!!!

Substitute for Prescriptives concealer - in search of the PERFECT under-eye concealer!
When I first tried Prescriptives Flawless Skin Concealer it was love at first sight. Weightless, goes on silky, mind blowingly good coverage, and not too oily or drying for my fickle skin. It was magic for my under eye circles. NOW, it is no longer sold in stores and they don't ship to Canada. Alas, they might even be discontinuing or reformulating it (fools). So, I think it's time to break up with my true love of concealers (have been trying to for a while since it has always been hard to get, but I hang on to the teensy remnants I still have in the container). Can anyone suggest another miracle worker that is especially good for under-eye? The Shisedo stick looks promising based on reviews, but again is apparently difficult to get (why do I always fall for the hard to get ones?). Everything I've tried in stores has been super underwhelming and does not compare to the prescriptives.  PS. I read other posts about under-eye concealers, and they recommend all these multi-step options with primers and correctors and so on. Nuh-uh. NO. I work unholy hours (hence the dark circles) and have all of ninety seconds to spend on my face in the morning. My primary objective is to get those circles covered so that I don't terrify my coworkers into thinking the zombie apocalypse has finally arrived. ONE STEP PEOPLE. Simplicity & perfection - I had it once, I will not give up until I find it again!

Illuminators
I have recently started to explore face Illuminators and highlighters.   So I have selfishly started this thread to hear more from all of you.  Your favourites, how you use them, thoughts, opinions, recommendationss etc.   To clarify - when I say highighters, I don't mean the "contour/highlight' kinda highlghter..  I mean the shimmery (or not) stuff you put on your cheek bones etc.   I have medium/deep skintone.  So here is my experience in testing some:   Burberry Golden Radiance liquid Illuminator Rate: A Use:  I mis it with foundation to thin it out an dapply it.  It is subtle and pretty.   Guerlain Terracotta Terre D'ete Tan Enhancer Rate: A Use: Although it says Bronzer, I use it as an overall illuminator/finishing powder.  Use a light hand   Guerlain Holiday Meteroites Rate: A- Use: I use a light hand at the end   Hourglass Radiant Light Rate: B or B+ Use:  It is okay.  Can look pwdery too quickly if I'm not careful.   Revlon Illuminator in Bare Rate: B- Use: I mix it with foundtaion.  It is okay in a pinch.    Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow Rate: B A Use: I mixed with foundation.  I now like it. I am not a big CT brand person, but I like this product and plan to purchase.    Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer #11 Rate: B Use: Mix with foundation.  It looks pretty, but is a pain removing.  It seems to sink into my skin and needs extra cleansing, and I don't like that.

MUFE HD Dupe?
It's time for me to admit that MUFE HD just isn't for my oily skin. No matter what kind of primer or setting spray or powder I use, my face is ALWAYS a grease ball at the end of the day. I even quit it for a while and then went back to Sephora a few days ago to get a sample just to try it with a new primer and powder but nope ... Therefore, I have very little faith in the new version. However, I love the finish and, unfortunately, the color (153) has matched me better than any foundation I've ever tried. So just wondering if anyone knows of any dupes. I've tried so many foundations and nothing comes close to the finish and shade of this product.

My foundation routine always looks cakey! Help!
Hello!   I'm 20, with fair skin and I have oily/sensitive acne prone skin, and I have yet to find a decent foundation routine. I have large pores on my cheeks, a ton of blackheads and rough skin on my forehead, like sort of checkered fine lines if that makes any sense. Every single foundation routine I've tried so far just accentuates the awful look of my skin, no primers, that I've tried seem to make any difference. Does anyone have any tips/brushes/makeup products to suggest? They all need to be long-lasting as well, preferably a luxury one, I never seem to like drugstore ones.   Products I've tried: -Beauty blender -Stippling Brush -Revlon Colorstay -Lacome Teint Idol -Covergirl ready set gorgeous -Loreal Tru Match -Loreal Tru Match lumiere -Two Faced Primed and Poreless -Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer -Smashbox photofinish -The porefessional -MAC studio fix powder -Lancome LaBase pore primer -Clinique Superprimer -Laura mercier translucent powder -MUFE Skin equalizer step 1 smoothing -Benefit Hello Flawless powder   Thanks so much!
