NEW FOUNDATION
I need a new foundation asap! I have such a hard time finding a good foundation that good for my sensitive skin. I want some coverage to cover my blemish i have atm, but nothing that is known for being cakey. I love dewy or matte foundation, so i can work with both. id prefer a cheaper foundation, but so willing to fork out some dough for a good looking foundation. I need a new one asap, going on vacation in a week!!

Foundation shade
Dear Sir/Madam, I want to know if the sephora foundation '10 hr wear perfection foundation' in the shade '22 clair light natural (P)' is still available or has this product been discontinued? And if so, could you recommend an equivalent shade of foundation from the same sephora collection (the 10 hr wear perfection foundation collection). I would love feedback because I have an upcoming graduation and would love to wear this foundation. Thanking you in advance, Triona

No makeup. Actually.
I'm going to post a picture of me without makeup. Because hey, I love makeup, but I'm also working on embracing my face au naturel, too.   None of this "I'm not wearing makeup" when you're wearing a tinted moisturizer, brown mascara, and have a slight flush to your cheeks and lips. I'm talking no makeup AT ALL (No, not even clear lip balm).   This is me, about 10 minutes out of the shower.   Anyone else brave enough?

HG foundation? light medium coverage
Hi so I've basically gone through probably 30 foundations in search of my hg. I want it to have that dewy satin look and work well with dry skin. natural is more the look I'm going for but i want that flawless coverage. I'm currently using yves saint laurent le teint touché éclat illuminating and i love it at first but it doesn't photograph well and i want to try something new!

Dewy/glowy/luminous skin
 I have the Dior star foundation and it gives a slightly glowy look but, I want something more luminous and glowy perhaps a highlighter or a primer to go with it since i still have a lot of product left. I was thinking about trying Dior's new primer thats supposed to add more glow but I wanted to hear your thoughts and suggestions first.   Thanks

Luminous Setting Powder
Hello all, I am hoping someone can provide some insight on a good luminous setting powder. I had some Korres loose powder that they no longer carry that I really liked... it kept the oil at bay but was definitely not a matte finish.   I was at the store and they recommended Givenchy Prisme Libre.  Of course it was beautiful and expensive so I grabbed it, but I found that it really isn't a luminous finish,  It is definitely more matte.   I also have the Hourglass Ambient Lighting powder in Dim Light but that has a little too much pigment - I'm really looking for something that is totally sheer.     There are several other choices that claim to have a luminous finish, including the new Burberry line that I was curious about.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  Most of the powders are not carried at a store near me so I can't try them out and I really hate to return,   Your suggestions would be great!  Thank you!!!!

Face Make-up/ foundation
My current foundation starts off nice at the beginning of the day, but after just a few hours it becomes heavy and my face becomes shiny and the foundation moves into my eyes and really irritates them.   Are there any suggestions of a brand that doesn't irritate eyes?

Cream/ liquid contouring help for pale skin
Hello! This is my first time posting in here so I hope this question hasn't been asked already. So about a month ago I went into Sephora looking for a contouring kit. I prefer creams only because powders do not sit well on my face. Also because I am very pale and the light powders don't show up on my face. Anyway... I purchased the Cover FX contouring kit since it was cream and had a light color that was actually lighter than my skin tone. Now I only wear makeup when I go out on the weekends. I use a contouring brush to apply my makeup and the 2 colors in the palette Ive been using are almost gone! I used it about 6 times and for almost $50 I don't feel that its worth it especially since Im only using 2/4 colors. Anyone have any other product suggestions for cream or liquid products for contouring that will give me a bit more bang for my buck? Thanks!

I am very acne prone and suffer from hormonal breakouts, at my best i always have at least 3-4 breakouts. Im looking for a liquid foundation that will look natural/flawless and will hide my breakouts. For other products i use, my go to primer is the Benefit Porefessional and for a powder i either use my clinique stay matte pressed powder or my tarte smooth operator loose setting powder.

Which Ambient Lighting shade should I get?
I'm not sure which shade to get... I intend to use it as a highlighter, But.. Not one /exclusively/ on my cheekbones. I want a shade to use on the triangle zone beneath my eyes, My nose and even chin area. Any thoughts? Would 'Luminous light' work for this, Without adding color to an area I contour slightly lighter than the rest of my face?

Makeup Forever HD foundation / now Ultra HD
I'm not sure if anyone knows but MUFE is revamping this formula. im kind of sad, since i do like the original. And its a really good match :/   if you search for thestyleandbeautydoctor she has a review up and theres a chart for the new shades. Mine is  very low so il be waiting  til i run out and the new one is available to try. My shade is 117 which is now Y225. I guess il keep my bottle to compare the color as well.   40 shades anyone else/ thoughts?   I also read on another blog: "Has the formula being changed?"   -As Dany said - they "did not change the formula, but added new ingredients to make it better". *  hyaluronic acid  (to bind moisture to the skin) * amino acid coated pigments (to stabilize pigment) *  mineral mica (to create radiance)

Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation.
Im kinda excited about this. Out now on nars, and will be available at sephora Feb 1, $48 comes with a pump   I hope to find a shade in this, gobi in the original sheer glow was too light and i think the next shade up was a touch dark   "This new formula creates instant polished perfection with full coverage in a single, weightless drop. Its uniquely fluid, oil-free formula defies the expectations of long-wear foundation, delivering full, natural-looking coverage with unexpectedly weightless, 16-hour wear. Ideal for all skin types and tones in 20 global shades that leave skin at its most beautiful. Yet this formula is also, dermatologist tested. fragrance, paraben, alcohol free. The innovative new formula features a unique Weightless Long-wear Technology that moves with skin, delivering up to 16 hours of wear while always feeling light-as-air and an Even Tone Technology that immediately neutralizes redness, dullness and discoloration to improve skin’s appearance over time."

too faced items possibly discontinued?
I've come to fall in love with Too Faced as a brand and I was wondering if a couple of products were being discontinued.   the Bronzed and Poreless bronzer isn't being sold at my store anymore (or anywhere in QC) and it's listed as OOS on the Canadian site but there are still some available on the American site. I use this bronzer daily and I've hit pan and there really isn't much left. I love this bronzer because it's light enough for my porcelain skin and I've been using it ever since it came out. Will it be back in stock? If not, can you recommend a good replacement that will be light enough for my cool-toned porcelain skin? My closest matching foundations are MUFE HD in 110, MAC Studio Fix in NW10, and UD in 0.5.   Also, I used to use their Tinted BB in Snow Glow which my store doesn't have anymore and I don't even see that shade on the Canadian site. Are they discontinuing the BB cream? It wasn't the most perfect match but I like wearing it during the summer when it's really hot out because it's light and doesn't melt off. Any suggestions for a BB cream for cool-toned porcelain skin?   Oh Too Faced, you make me literally fall in love with some of your products and then you take them away from me.
