I'm just wondering if there's a chance this will come back into stock or if it's never going to be available again. I feel as though it might not be available again because there is no option to "email me when it becomes available again." What do you think?
I saw this on YouTube and it really did work. It's kind of weird though. Using loose powder before applying your liquid foundation. What you do is put on your moisturizer and.or primer as usual then you powder your face with loose powder, not pressed powder in a compact. It can be loose powder such as Nars Loose Setting Powder or even one that has color to it like Urban Decay Ultra Definition Loose Powder which is what I use. So you powder your face then apply your liquid foundation or BB cream. The powder gives the liquid something to stick to and holds your skin care in place underneath the foundation. I found that I use less foundation this way also. After the foundation you only need to powder again in you T zone. My foundation stays in place and doesn't slip and slide. Even not coming off so easily on shirts. I love this hack, it may not work for everyone but it's worth a try. Good luck!
I am trying to find out how I may attain the "milky white complexion that many women sport. Is there a cream that I can use to get that complexion. I have heard the term BB cream being mentionned, so I went out to purchase it and it didn't work at all. In addition, apparently many of these women rub on their body too.
My color IQ number is 2R03. I am looking for a tinted moisturizer. I am most interested in Smashbox, Tarte, Too Faced, or Urban Decay. Can anyone tell me what shade I would be in any of these?? Thanks so much!!!!
Hey ladies! I'm stuck in the hunt for BB creams! I have a neutral skin tone, and i feel like every BB cream i find is either too pink toned, or too orange! I LOOOVE the smashbox photoready BB cream! The light/neutral shade is perfect for me, but the price! Yikes! I am a shade N2 in Estee Lauder double wear, if that helps. Does anyone know of a BB cream that has a good, not so pricey, light/neutral shade??? Thanks everyone!
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.

I am dying to know how to contour and I can't just follow a video because when I do I end up looking like a spray tan gone way wrong. Can or if I go into Sephora can they tell me/teach me how to do it? If so how much would it cost.
Hello all. I was wondering if someone could make a shade recommendation for me. I want to try Diorskin Forever Flawless foundation, but I'm not sure which shade to choose. I have worn Nars Sheer Glow in Mont Blanc and Mac Studio Fix in NW13. Anyone have any ideas? Thank you!
I haven't been able to find it anywhere, so assuming it's discontinued. I've been wearing it for years, so any suggestion on a similar brand/color? My skin is oily so I prefer matte, the syracuse color is perfect in the summer and I mix it with Smashbox BB creme in light in the winter. I have dark brunette/brown eyes. Thanks!
I'm in the search of a full/medium coverage foundation! I've been looking into Estée Lauder double wear or kat von d lock it foundation So I use to be super super dry, but here lately I think some of the medication that I'm on has made me combo, because I'm definitely not oily but still not completely dry, my main questions to those of you that have either of those foundations are: Do they oxidize? Are either of them drying? Best way to apply them? Im also up for any other recommendations that you may have! thanks so much!!
I have every problem under the sun. Anyone know of a miracle foundation that is good for... HUGE pores Redness Sometimes dry, sometimes oily skin Wrinkles / Fine lines Always looks like makeup is cakey no matter what I do. I need a miracle! Hehe Thanks
Hello! I want to purchase the MAC pro long wear concealer but have never bought a MAC product (this will be my first and I'm so excited!) so I don't know what shade to buy. I'm currently using the NARS Radiant Creamy concealer in the shade Medium1 Custard. I was thinking MAC NC20 or NC30 matched the best to that. Im purchasing online and not in-store so I want to make sure I get the best match. Any help would be appreciated!
I love a luminous look, but I feel like because I'm pale (really pale) nothing is enough of a contrast to actually make my skin look luminous. Anyone have any suggestions of foundations, powder, or any other product that would achieve this look? For reference, I have tried and do not care for the following as it just seems to not show up on my skin: Benfit Watt's Up, Nars Albatross, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish, Bare Minerals Illuminating Mineral Veil. I'd like an all over glow, so perhaps a luminizing foundation (eyeing the Nars one), but am also interested in any finishing powders or highlighting creams/sticks to apply to my cheekbones.
Hi, I am looking for a new foundation to try. I have dry and very sensitive skin I am currently using benefits hello flawless oxygen wow, and the colour is "I'm plush and precious, petal". and I am thinking to get one of those foundations from YSL or Giorgio Armani. I tried YSL's LE TEINT TOUCHE ÉCLAT Illuminating, shade 30 but I think it kinda dries out my skin but I liked the finish look. Sephora that located near my area does not carry Giorgio Armani so that I could not try but I have heard so many people complimenting the product. So I'd like to get some recommendation of those foundations or others that would work for me as well as the shade Thanks.
The kit seems really nice, and not too bad of a price for 6 shades. But I have light skin (pink undertones) and I've never bought any of the Anastasia products before (although Ive heard good stuff), so I am not sure if it is worth it or to go with something else? Thanks.
My skin is normally very oily, but in these frigid winter months the T-Zone of my face (under eyes, cheeks, nose, chin, between brows) have been super dry and flaky.. but yet oily at the same time. These areas have not been loving any of my foundations (Estee Lauder Doubler Wear, Makeup Forever Matte Velvet). Within 5 minutes of putting them on, the foundation in these areas looks blotchy and speckled and cracked and gross. I have been moisturizing religiously and gently exfoliating with a wash cloth. I make sure to wait at least 10 minutes after moisturizing to put on my primer (that I ALWAYS makes sure has the same base as my foundation whether that be silicone, oil, or water based). I use my beauty blender to apply the foundation to make sure there is no microexfoliation. So, PLEASE, someone help me out here. Which foundation, or formula of foundation, would be my best best for actually staying on my face???! Despite the dryness on my cheeks, I still have large pores and my skin gets oily somewhat quickly (even the dry areas have a nice coating of grease by the end of the day) Any suggestions?
I'm 55, with nice skin and completion. I wear a CPAP machine at night and it takes much longer for skin to rebound from impressions from the mask. I'm looking for a foundation that smooths my skin, promotes elasticity. What cosmetic line do you recommend?
"'As painters always start with a smooth, perfectly prepped canvas to ensure a perfect end result, makeup artists need unified, flawless even-textured skin as a the starting point for perfect makeup results every time. ' -Dany’s words. Discover the first step of your complexion routine for a perfect result: STEP1 Skin EQUALIZER . Like a makeup booster, the new primers prepare the skin for a perfect complexion just like a painter prepares his canvas with a basecoat. STEP1 Skin EQUALIZER is an equalizer that can balance out every skin to provide perfect texture and the best possible base to apply foundation. The new generation primer improves the skin texture with a lighting or transparency effect, without changing the carnation; it acts like a brightness modulator. The 6 formulas answer to 6 issues: shining, dehydration, dryness, redness, dilated pores and fine line, lack of radiance. STEP1 Skin EQUALIZER is an entire range which allows tailor-made primers for each woman." Has anyone tried these yet? Looks like there's something for everyone. I recently switched from my old Smashbox primer to Too Faced Primed and Poreless, and I feel like it just emphasizes my pores. (Strange, because it gets such great reviews, but I swear they weren't this big when I used my old stuff.) I'm interested in the Smoothing Primer. I'm sure by the time my No Buy is over, there will be plenty of reviews, but I'm curious now!
I was doing some reading on the ambient powders. I'm probably the last girl on earth to own this. But there's one shade I feel like wouldn't suite me or look natural. Then I came across this. ..... Does this exist, ,? If it does where on earth do I go,.!?????
Does anyone else sometimes combine different loose powders? Recently I have been using a mix of MUFE HD powder with Besame Violet powder as a finishing powder. Other times I've added a small amount of powder foundation to Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. I do this to add a little tint, combine the advantages of more than one powder, or just experiment. It's fun to custom-blend, but I always mix a very small batch, in case I'm not happy with it. Does anyone else do this?
I'm searching for something that will make me appear as if I've been out in the snow for awhile or in the heat. Something that will give me a natural, rosy look. I should also mention that I have oily/acne-prone skin, so something natural and non-greasy would be preferred. Also, NO SPARKLES OR SHIMMER.
So I am patiently waiting for the Too Faced Contour palette coming soon.....but I have been wondering if the sticks or cream based products are better than the powder based products? Any opinions out there? Thanks in advance!
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?
