Face/Blotting Powder
Hello all I would like to try a new powder. I've been using Cover FX Blotting powder in medium over my foundation and BB cream. My skin type is oily that's why I would like a powder or blotting powder whatever they are called these days lol. Thanks for the help! Also if you could recommend a face brush along with the powder that would be great.

I almost found my HG foundation, and there's Bismuth Oxychloride.
Oh god.  Today, I tried out Benefit Hello Flawless foundation sample I've got weeks ago. Recently, I was actively searching for a foundation that suits me better than Nars Sheer glow and was considering between Chanel and TF. When I applied this HF foundation, I thought I found my HG foundation. It was really the best foundation I've ever worn...so smooth, right coverage, my skin looked flawless! and...   After washing my face, I found some red bumpy breakouts (whitehead-ish, something you can easily pop up, not a big inflammatory one) on my face...and when was the last time this happened to me? It was when I used Bare Minerals mineral powder foundation. Wait, is this Bismuth Oxychloride? I did my research, and yes, there you are!    I'm just so sad. I immediately ordered this foundation from Sephora since I just knew! it's the perfect foundation..but didn't know that it's that plus Bismuth Oxychloride. I was just a step away, and now I know I have to return it. SO SAD!

Contouring & Highlighting
Hey Girls!   I've been looking into the highlight & contouring style these days, I've watched videos on how to do it myself. I'm not very good at it either, and I am a beginner with that technique. So I'd like to advance my makeup skills.    What do you suggest I use? I hate anything that comes in a powder palette. I prefer creamy palettes. Any advice will do.    Thank You :-)

What shade to try in Laura Mercier foundation since I'm fair and pink undertoned...
Hi! I was wanting to try a  Mercier tinted moisturizer but since I am a fair redhead and I know I'm tough to match I'm not sure which shade to order. I use Make Up Forever HD in 110 in winter and 115 in summer if that helps. Have any ideas?

Pressed Powder Recommendation
Can you recommend a great pressed powder especially to use to prevent midday shine? I've used MAC in the way past but haven't needed it as much as my skin ages and has become more dry. However, lately I have leaned more towards the natural & mineral make-up brands to deal w/my sensitive and more reactive skin.  It could be my moisturizer but I seem to have more shine, especially on my forehead now during the day.  I have fair to light medium skin w/red undertones.

Always thought I was yellow toned, but was recommended a pink toned product
I'm curious on what you ladies would do.  I've always thought foundation products with a very slight yellow hue match my skin best (I've been 1Y07 or 1Y06 when using colorIQ in stores).  But when I talked to a Cover FX rep at the Rouge event she thought my tones were more pink and convinced me to buy the P30.  In fairness, the G30 was WAY too yellow for my skin so I was thinking I'd be more of a neutral in this line.  She only tested the product on my neck since I had a full face of makeup on and it seemed fine but I'm nervous.  I explained my hesitation to her for all the reasons above and she said just to return it if I didn't like it, but I try to use that only as a very last resort.   What would you do?

I currently own Eco Tools brushes but am looking to invest in a high end brush set. I am not really interested in eye brushes because I do own a Kat Von D set.

Lightest BB or CC Cream
Hello, I could use some recommendations, have never used a BB or CC cream before. Is there something out there that I could order online & have it be the right shade? I am 67 with fair, normal-to-dry skin. When I've used tinted moisturizers in the past, I usually get a very light shade. For 3 years, I've been using Jane Iredale loose powder in "Satin". It has great coverage, but I'm getting kind of tired of it. I am not sure whether to try a BB or a CC. If I put powder over it, I don't need SPF in the cream. Mainly I'd like to brighten, cover redness & reduce the appearance of large pores. Thanks for any help! (I was about to choose Clinique Age Defense & then read too many reviews saying it was heavy & difficult to apply).

New foundation, concealer, and finishing powder NEEDED
I am looking for a new foundation that is moderate coverage, but does not leave a matte or a heavy powder appearance which seems to make fine lines and pores ten times worse. I am currently using Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Foundation and not liking the finished product. I am also curious if using Dr. Jart+ CC Essence Balm, Dr. Jart+ BB Bounce Beauty Balm, AmorePacific Color Control Cushion Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 50+, or something similar to Lancôme MIRACLE CUSHION Liquid Cushion Compact Foundation. Also, I am looking for concealer other than the benefit watts up or benefit flawless brightning concealer. Open to other products. Finishing powders that wont amplify the current issues for setting my makeup? Too Faced Absolutely Invisible Candlelight Powder?

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water
Lemme just say.. Yes I did give in to paying $37 CAD for water in a bottle. I've decided to bite the bullet to see if it was as amazing as everyone says it is! And since the VIB sale is happening, I thought now would be the perfect time!   I have watched a lot of YouTube reviews on this product, but none of them fully answered all my questions! So I'm hoping you can help!   -Do I need to use liquid primers while using this product, (I use the Hourglass Veil primer and Benefit's POREfessional) -^ If yes, do I use them before or after I spritz myself with the primer water? -Even if I don't have to use liquid primers, is it also okay if I do? -For those who have tried it, are you loving it? Or do you feel like it was a waste of money?   Thank you loves!!! xx

ESTEE LAUDER DOUBLE WEAR FOUNDATION ? Foundation Question
 I am 15 years old and I recently bought the foundation, am I too young to be wearing foundation ? Is the foundation non-comedogenic? My mom has told me that foundations can make the skin age faster, is that true ? I am worrying because the foundation is quite pricy and I'm hoping that there won't be any regrets. Also, Would it work if I were to mix it with moisturizer to turn it into a tinted moisturizer? As for additional information, My skin is quite oily (especially the T-Zone, oh boy) and have a few acne spots and pimples here and there. Thank you
