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?

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.

Help! I need summer makeup! Mine is melting off my face!
I have pretty good, mature skin.  Not too many blemishes or marks, and I'm quite fair with blue eyes.  I am having trouble finding a good summer face makeup that will cover my little bit of redness, and stay on my face!  With the humidity in New York everything is just melting off.  Even powder isn't really working.....I've been trying a tinted sunscreen with Bare Minerals over it, but the coverage isn't very good...Any ideas??

Best foundation for me for my wedding day?
I am getting married in april and want a good quality foundation to wear that will last all day and will still look good in pictures. I want a foundation that is NOT a powder. I tend to have somewhat oily skin and have blemishes that I need covered. I also have somewhat sensitive skin. I also need it to be somewhat reasonably priced. I cannot spend more than $45 on it. I would LOVE it if you could give me multiple examples. Please help!

  Mac is launching this in August. By the way, if anyone wants to look like Marge Simpson, just apply some turmeric spice as a mask onto your face. That stuff won't come off for a while lol I made that mistake.

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?

eyebrows
Long time ago I purchased a bulletproof eyebrow kit by Too Faced, at first it worked excellent. It glided on well when I put it on but lately its been so dry that I had to buy a different type of eyebrow dip.    Now, I really love this bulletproof eyebrow kit, do you guys have any idea how I can make it become moist like when I first got it?? So I dont throw out $30 in the trash... it would suck for me.    Thanks.

Product Help Please!
I'm looking for a product to replace my Marc Jacobs Close-Up (302) Lightshow Luminizing Powder. I bought one near the end of last year and have been trying so hard to make it last but I'd rather just find something else to use when this is over that I can always find. Multiple products that are similar in each shade would be fine, but I prefer palettes. Or if you have any suggestions for different colour highlighters, etc! I have fair skin, hazel eyes and dark brown hair. Hope someone can help me, thanks!

SHISEIDO Foundation Brush ITEM # 1364009 Question
I ordered the SHISEIDO Foundation Brush ITEM # 1364009. I liked the description. "What it is: A versatile foundation brush for use with all formulations.   If anyone owns this brush, will you please confirm what I read on two separate Sephora reviews.  "In the fine print on the package it says to "avoid using with water resistant foundations". I use Make Up forever HD and it clumps as soon as I use it and a daily brush cleaner does not work. It takes 4 good washes to get it clean but it works so well the first time after you wash it. I will keep it if I decide to change foundations because it is very nice when it is clean." -------------------------------------------------- ------------------------- "Note, that the brush does come with instructions. You're not supposed to use a swirling motion for most of the application process. The leaflet explains to use a dabbing and pressing motion for most of your face and a swirling for the lighter application along the sides." -------------------------------------------------- ------------------------- Now the brush is sounding more like a stippling brush. How are you using it? I bought it because it looked like a small flat top dense buffing type brush. Also, top reviews said it was SOFT which is very important.
