How long is UNOPENED liquid foundation & concealer good for?
A little over a month ago I stocked up during the sale and bought an extra Urban Decay Naked Liquid Foundation, and a Smashbox Concealer. I am finally ready to open the boxes and start using them (my old product lasted much longer than expected!!). I am just curious - how long is it okay to have them unopened before throwing them out?    I've read a lot about how long to keep them when they are opened, but was curious if unopened makes any differences in time or if it gives it an extension as to when it expires. Sorry if this is a stupid question... just curious!

Light foundation talk
Hi, all. I am, once again, having foundation issues. My skin has changed recently--lighter as winter has descended, and battling acne while a new medication takes effect. I've found that t he lightest shades in Estee Lauder DW and Lancome 24Hr are too dark for me. Revlon Colorstay in 110 Ivory is too pink. The foundation closest to my skin shade that I have Urban Decay in 0.5, but it’s not enough coverage--plus it's been awhile since I've worn it, and I haven't had the chance to see how it looks in a natural light source.  I've had Color IQ done at least six times, all with a different, too-dark result. It's fairly useless for my skin. I want to try Kat Von D’s line, but I'm not sure about shades. Light 42 or Light 44? I don't live near a Sephora store, so I can't really get samples--plus 42 isn't carried in stores anyway. Any advice or opinions?

Which shade of Diorskin Flawless Perfection Wear foundation matches Dior Nude BB Creme in 001?
To make a long story short, the only BB Creme I have found that matches my skin wonderfully is the Diorskin Nude BB Creme in 001 (Light). I'm currently looking for a great foundation for days when I need more coverage, and I wanted to find out if the Diorskin Forever Flawless Perfection Wear foundation in their lightest shade, 010, is a similar shade to the BB Creme in 001. I have quite pale skin with slight pink undertones, and I have trouble finding a foundation that doesn't appear too orange on my skin. I'm currently using the Make Up Forever HD foundation in 110 and while the color is great, I find that it's too powdery (it just sits on the skin and is too noticeable) unless I mix it with a moisturizer; and no matter what, it rubs off the skin too easily. If the world were a perfect place, there would be a foundation that is just like the Dior Nude BB Creme (which is not only a perfect color match but also seems to just sink right into the skin flawlessly) but which provides some more coverage. Hence, my question about the Flawless Perfection Wear that I have posed to all you wonderful ladies and men. I must add that the only Sephora that carries this foundation the "closest" to me is in Portland, and I cannot travel all the way there for this, unfortunately. I don't live there, or even remotely near there, anymore. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best bronzer for medium/tan skin?
I have medium-tan skin with yellow undertones. Recommendations for bronzers that give warmth to the face, I am envisioning more of a "golden goddess" kind of look. At this point I am considering Bobbi brown's bronzer in medium or nars laguna, but I am open to other suggestions! I have already tried toofaced chocolate soleil and hoola, and I am not a huge fan of either. Thanks!

NARS luminous stay all day powder foundation
Has anyone tried this yet?  Does anyone have any application suggestions for fuller coverage?  I like natural looking foundation but I do have some acne scarring I need to hide.  I read a review that said to apply with a beauty blender but idk how i feel about using my beauty blender to apply powder foundation.  Have any of you guys tried this before?  I tried applying the NARS foundation with my Tarte airbrush finish foundation brush and I got an okay coverage.

Q. New Foundation
Ive been using Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide in shade cashew lately and it is the best foundation I've ever used.  It has amazing coverage, the colour matched perfect, it had such a natural finish and the tube last for four months.   The only problem is that Ive been wanting to use more natural products for skincare/makeup because I've found it to be better with my skin.  So I was wanting to know of any foundations that might be similar but that are more natural.  Price isn't a huge deal.  I am 16 with dry/acne skin.  Weird combination but my skin is parched.  Thank you so much!

Q. Hi there! Which concealer would work best with Immaculate Hourglass foundation? :)
From anyone's personal experience, do you know what concealer would work best with Hourglass Immaculate foundation? Love the foundation, but it can be hard to blend out at times, and it is really uncooperative with the current concealers I own. Thank you <3

Choosing a foundation
Hi all! I am looking for the right foundation for my skin. I have very dry/sensitive skin, especially in the T-zone area. I also have freckles and dark circles under my eyes. I am looking for a foundation (powder, liquid, or whatever) that will even out my skin tone and leave a matte/natural finish, but will not look like I'm caking on make up to cover my freckles. Help??

Does anyone know of a full powder blush in a similar color to the Sephora Collection Double Contouring Cream Blush Color No 05 Rose Glow? I love the color but I would prefer a powder as it is easier to work with.

Missing YSL Touche Eclat Foundation Shade?? BD50
Sephora has been out of stock online and in the LA region for MONTHS, and now they have taken it off of the website.   But.... it's available from YSL, at Nordstrom (online and in-store in LA), and at Bloomingdale's (online and in-store in LA). I have heard rumors that Sephora is discontinuing this shade... but what gives? This is the equivalent to a MAC NC35-40, which is a very popular shade.    Can someone tell me what is going on?
