I was curious to know if there was any way to make suggestions as far as what foundations work and don't work in regards to the skin tone numbers for the Color IQ. I took the time out to swatch each of the liquid foundations my store carried for my color (1R13) and well...yeah. These ranges go from super light yellow, to deep, everything in the middle, some have a little more red, it's just a mess. Not to mention, out of all these shades I can only wear two without looking as if my foundation is too red or to yellow (Stila Stay All Day and MUFE Face and Body).
Browsing the new colors of Sephora's Colorful Blush, I spied this! Could this be the perfect cool, grey-toned contour for us pale girls? I need this, like now! They also have several more contour colors as well as highlighters. Worth taking a look at these. http://www.sephora.com/colorful-blush-P291430?skuI d=1661123
I use Laura mercier silk creme foundation and just had to buy a new bottle but i do NOT like her new updated oil free silk creme, I even tried the moisturizing too . Its not the Same coverage as the original. I feel the original was a little thicker and had better coverage. Is there another foundation brand that has similar coverage as the original silk creme foundation? I also have acne scars and I like something med to full. Nothing too full coverage as kate Von d , and that is why I use to love Laura mercier silk creme. So sad it changed. . Any suggestions would be great!!!
I am wanting to order the Born This Way Foundation, and I don't want to order the wrong shade. If someone could help me, that would be awesome. I am shade 1.0 in the Urban Decay Liquid Foundation. Please Help!
I have neutral undertones and I love the Sephora 10 hour foundation, but since it's summer my skin is darker than it usually is. I'm very light complected, but tan super easy. I have Light Ecru and Medium in the foundation...Light Ecru is way too light, but the Medium is too dark. Is there one that falls in the middle and don't have yellow or pink undertones?
Hi! anyone out there have oily t zone/dehydrated combo skin have a good foundation? i've tried the new nars luminous one and it's good but not my fav for my skin type. I use the MUFE nourishing primer which helps my skin a lot. any recommendations on what to lean towards?!
It's time for me to admit that MUFE HD just isn't for my oily skin. No matter what kind of primer or setting spray or powder I use, my face is ALWAYS a grease ball at the end of the day. I even quit it for a while and then went back to Sephora a few days ago to get a sample just to try it with a new primer and powder but nope ... Therefore, I have very little faith in the new version. However, I love the finish and, unfortunately, the color (153) has matched me better than any foundation I've ever tried. So just wondering if anyone knows of any dupes. I've tried so many foundations and nothing comes close to the finish and shade of this product.
Should I wait for the new Champange pop or would my medium/tan skin tone be better off with another color option like opal etc.. Or if anyone has any other suggestions from other brands high end or drug store that suits a medium/tan skin tone without looking to light or glittery -XO Rachel
I just wanted to post this in case it has gone live US also, so those who love the products and fabulous packaging don't miss out. I treated myself to the cream version of bronze and glow and the makeup bags
I love the idea of this, but the reality is disappointing. First of all, since I have dark skin, it's hard to see any pigment. And it rubs my foundation off. AND it's sticky. Ugh. http://www.sephora.com/cheek-stain-P384571?keyword =TARTE%20Cheek%20Stain%20P384571&skuId=1577824&_re ...
I purchased this and LOVE the color. It's perfect for me. However, like others, I'm not sure I love the formula, I can't seem to pick up enough on my brush. Do you have any recommendations for another blush in that color? Would the peach toned Hourglass blush be an option? Thanks in advance.
I have recently started to explore face Illuminators and highlighters. So I have selfishly started this thread to hear more from all of you. Your favourites, how you use them, thoughts, opinions, recommendationss etc. To clarify - when I say highighters, I don't mean the "contour/highlight' kinda highlghter.. I mean the shimmery (or not) stuff you put on your cheek bones etc. I have medium/deep skintone. So here is my experience in testing some: Burberry Golden Radiance liquid Illuminator Rate: A Use: I mis it with foundation to thin it out an dapply it. It is subtle and pretty. Guerlain Terracotta Terre D'ete Tan Enhancer Rate: A Use: Although it says Bronzer, I use it as an overall illuminator/finishing powder. Use a light hand Guerlain Holiday Meteroites Rate: A- Use: I use a light hand at the end Hourglass Radiant Light Rate: B or B+ Use: It is okay. Can look pwdery too quickly if I'm not careful. Revlon Illuminator in Bare Rate: B- Use: I mix it with foundtaion. It is okay in a pinch. Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow Rate: B A Use: I mixed with foundation. I now like it. I am not a big CT brand person, but I like this product and plan to purchase. Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer #11 Rate: B Use: Mix with foundation. It looks pretty, but is a pain removing. It seems to sink into my skin and needs extra cleansing, and I don't like that.
I have very oily skin I believe right now I use Estee Lauder 24 hour foundation. I feel like I'm using too much on my face. I also have cytic acne, which is a swollen pimple under the skin very painful and even harder to conceal since it is just a bump that hurts. What should I do? I need full coverage due to the fact that I have acne. I also have liked cover fx, and naked. What primers should I try? I also work two jobs so I am very on the go and I need a foundation that can hold up with me. So anything would be appreciated!
Help! I need suggestions for a strong foundation or concealer...I have vitiligo and currently use cover FX foundation and setting powder. These worked great for winter, but now that summer is here, when I am out and the sun is beaming down and the sweat beads form, it actually looks like I am literally melting. It's sooo embarassing. Anyone know of a product that will stay put no matter how hot it gets. I really want to enjoy my summer days without worrying that my makeup is going to drip off.
I live in Canada so everything is a LOT more expensive and before I buy an item I want to try it out. The samples they give you when in a sephora store isn't enough for me to really test out a product. Best way I find is to travel with it and see if it will be the thing I reach for all week and doesn't break me out and such. So I want to get the new promo that offers the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation deluxe sample , but nowhere on the size does it list how much is offered in the deluxe sized sample! Anyone know the size of it? And is it any good from first impressions?
hey i use the mac NC41 studio fix fluid..so could you please suggest what shade from the sephora collection palate would match the one i have from mac.. PS:i have to order it online as i do not have a sephora store near me..
Hi all, I'm hoping for some of your pro's and con's for both foundations. I've purchased NARS Sheer Glow before and really loved it - it was pretty close to a perfect formula for me! I haven't owned Urban Decay's Naked Skin foundation but have used on multiple occasions and am interested in trying it out. Is there a large gap in quality or wear? Which do you prefer and why? They are pretty close in price (Naked retails for $39 and Sheer Glow for $45) but at times that slight difference can seem like a lot to a college student. Thanks!
Hey everybody! So I'm going away on vacation in mid-July and I wanted a new foundation with light-med but natural coverage. I sweat a lot on my face in the heat so it's gotta stick very well with my UD all-nighter. I also hate matte finishes (bleck). Does anyone have any good suggestions? For shade reference, I'm a G60 in cover fx, bare honey in BM, Tawny in LM tinted moisturizer.
I have decently bad acne. I want a foundation and concealer combo that is long lasting and will cover it up well, but not be too heavy. My previous favorite was Estee Lauder Double Wear, but it's a lot heavier than I want. Recently I've been using Too Faced BB and Mac Studio Finish Concealer, but the foundation comes off much too quickly and the concealer is very stiff and looks cakey. I don't care about finish. I've been considering Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Stay in Place, BareMinerals bareSkin Brightening Serum Foundation, and Urban Decay Naked Skin. I have no idea what to do for concealers. What are your recommendations for foundation (of what I've named or other) and for concealer? Thanks so so much!!
