Estee Lauder Double Wear
Hi There - I'm currently using the estee lauder double wear foundation in Ecru 1n2, however I realize now its too light for my skin tone. I did the color IQ in sephora back in January and was matched to 1Y07, and i found that the estee lauder match to that code was Fresco 2C3. Just by looking at the Fresco shade i know it might be too pink for my skin tone. I am definitely neutral even though I find the veins in my wrists quite blue. My face has some pink undertone but id like to match my foundation to my neck and it is definitely more neutral and not pink. Looking for suggestions on what shades you might think would work for me? I understand the "7" is a medium shade. I was looking at the desert beige 2n1, or the dawn beige 2w1 or the rattan 2w2. thank you!!

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer Shade Match
Hey everyone. Im new here and I would love to invest in the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer before I go on vacation. I will be ordering online and I have NO idea what shade to get. I also would like to get some information on the product from people who use it. Do you think it is worth the price tag? For my skin background; I have VERRRY oily skin with a few like dryish liney places like especially around my nose forehead and chin. Makeup tends to settle in those little lines and looks cakey. So I want to know if this will make me cakey. I also have acne prone skin and sensitive skin. Is this a good product for it? Will it make me break out? Also, will it cover dark spots? I want to be able to have a shade that works well under my eyes as well as on other areas of my face. I will list some shades I am in other brands of makeup (I have never been color matched in MAC) Also in most brands specifically drugstore Im in a shade that has the word IVORY in it: Estee Lauder Double Wear: 2N1 Desert Beige 12 Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Liquid Foundation: Ivory Kat von D Lock Tattoo Foundation: Light 44 Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer: 02 Light Medium Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Powder Foundation: Fair-Light Neutral Clinique Stay Matte Sheer Pressed Powder Oil-Free: 02 stay neutral (MF) Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Powder Foundation: 1C1 Cool Bone   FYI: I do have a nasty brake out right now and Im hoping this will cover up redness as I have naturally very uneven skin and hyper pigmentation especially around the nose. I have also been looking into the colors and thinking possibly vanilla might be an option?? Thanks so much for your time and if you fellow beauty experts have any information on any of my questions please get back to me as soon as possible as I hope to have this for my trip (going to a beach, hoping to have waterproof makeup)    Xoxo

Anastasia Contour kit
So, I had an email this morning that the kit was available, and I decided to check up on it again right now and it's out of stock! I was sad but I called my Sephora and thankfully they have it and will have it on hold for me unil tomorrow at 1. Hopefully I don't get the same experience that I had when I put some tarte set on hold a year ago! I can't wait!!!!!

Peter Thomas Roth CC + Ambient Lightening Palette?
I just bought the Ambient palette, but I haven't received it yet. From what I understand it gives you a bit of a glow. I am wanting to buy the PTR CC cream, but from the samples I got the CC cream was extremely pearly. I liked how this looked, but I was thinking combining the two might be excessive. They are both higher end products for me, so I would want to use them often. Has anyone mixed these two products before? What did it look like?

I've searched for it and can not find the colour anywhere on your website.I just love the glow it gives,  is it still available? And if not what would be an identical product.  Kind regards. Sabrina.

Chanel CC Cream
Has anyone tried the Chanel CC Cream?   I'm thinking of getting it but am worried about the color. It only comes in one color which is B20 but I'm a B10 in Chanel foundations. Would the color still work for me or would it be too dark? Also since I read that its medium coverage, I would use this as my main base makeup and maybe with a translucent powder on top,

Has anyone used Celebration Foundation Illumination by IT Cosmetics?
I used bare minerals for many years and loved it. But now that I am nearing 50 it seems to be/look drying. I've been using LM silk cream foundation and LM Tinted moisturizer. I've just been hearing great things about IT foundation especially after reading the anti-aging ingredients! Anyone used it? Advice?  Celebration Foundation Illumination :  Formulated with Hydrolyzed Collagen, Peptides, Anti-Oxidants and Drops of Light™ Technology for the ultimate, soft, candlelit glow complexion. This full coverage foundation is infused with key ingredients such as Niacin, Hyaluronic Acid, Rose, Silk and Aloe that help to leave skin fresh and hydrated, never dry or cakey!

any Stila's One Step Complexion Brush #33 users?
Its hard to believe that 90~95% of this brush's reviews are 5 star "amazing, wow, etc"  I went to SDM to look for Dior's flat foundation brush and the lady looked at me as if I'm crazy in preferring the flat version of foundation brushes.. but I have dry skin and its very easy for buffing brushes to accentuate the flakiness and dryness more     but anyway, has anyone tried this brush and liked it? how do you use it? do you like it better than buffing or flat foundation brushes?

New Dr. Jart+ BB Radiance Beauty Balm
I just noticed online that there are a couple new Dr. Jart+ BB creams.     I'm kind of interested in the BB Radiance Beauty Balm. http://www.sephora.com/bb-radiance-beauty-balm-P38 6117?skuId=1603802   It says it isn't in any stores around me, maybe it isn't out yet except online?     I'm hoping to see swatches sometime or see the color IQ number.  I really like the Black Label Detox BB, but I need to make sure this will work with my coloring too.     Has anyone heard about it or tried it?

Peter Thomas Roth CC cream
I received a sample of PTR CC cream a few weeks ago and was keen to try it after hearing really good things from a friend. When I first put it on, I had a brief yet terrifying Oompa Loompa moment, but after putting on my Bobbi Brown Long Wear Even Finish foundation over it, my face my complexion looked the best it has ever looked!   Unfortunately, by the end of the day, the CC cream was still there but my foundation is nowhere to be found! I was an Oompa Loompa once more   I primed using Hourglass primer, set using Laura Mercier powder and the Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray.    What went wrong? I'm so confused....    HELP!

bareMinerals liquid foundation is online!
I know a lot of you were curious about the new bareMinerals foundation, so I thought I'd let you know it's on the Sephora website! It isn't in stock but I can confirm that it is in the Color IQ system so if you want to see if you've got a likely shade match, you can do so

My conclusions on makeup/skincare on days I go to the gym
Hey BTers,   I asked you all a while ago about makeup/skincare tips for days that I work out. Based on your suggestions, here's what seems to work well for me:   1. In the morning for work,I keep it simple by just wearing either foundation or BB cream, blush, eyebrow pencil and lipstick. Because my eyes are really sensitive, I don't wear any eye makeup before I work out because I don't want any residue getting into my eyes when I sweat.   2. Before I work out, I use a makeup removing wipe to get as much of it off as I can. Then of course tie my hair back.   3. After I work out, I use a mild face wash to remove the dirt and sweat. I don't use my regular cleanser because it's fairly strong, and since I use it morning and evening, I thought midday too would be too hard on my skin. I follow that with a mild toner (no alcohol) to remove excess dirt.   4. For makeup, I put on BB cream, mascara, a bit of eyeshadow, pencil my eyebrows and lipstick.   That's it! I hope this helps anyone wondering about skincare/makeup on days you work out.

Bottom Line: Best Cheek Color Shade in the World
No matter what your skin tone is, it's hard to find "the one".  They're either too red, too orange, or oxidize like crazy.  Personally, and with fair skin, Tarte's "Exposed" is just the most perfect neutral.  But, I can see where Ebony shades of skin would just look washed out with it.   So, after years and years of holding shades up in the light at the store, trying shades bought at the counter and only to find it really didn't look that good in normal conditions, I do believe I've found it.   Bobbi Brown's "Pale Pink".  Oh my lawd, it's amazing!  In the pan, it looks like a raspberry/hot pink.  I'm extremely fair complected, so just 1 single dab of my brush into it gives me just enough for the apples of my cheeks and swept into my hairline.  GORGEOUS.  Makes your skin look youthful, healthy, and alive.  Doesn't change colors, lasts all day.  In fact, I've read it's Bobbi's personal favorite to use on all her models and looks, especially on the apples even if she's using another shade for the cheekbone.   As for its use-up rate, I've had this tiny pan in my 500 point VIB bonus since the fall, and I've just barely pushed off the imprint left by manufacturing.     AMAZING stuff!

Similar shade to Nars Laguna?
So I like the color of the Nars laguna, but the formula of the product is just not working for me (I've been having difficulties picking up the products with a variety of brushes).  So I've been hearing everyone gushing about the Sephora collection bronzers so I figured I would give one of them a try.  Does anyone know which shade would be similar to Laguna, Bora Bora or Los Cabos?   I have medium skin tone (I wear bare minerals matte in medium), so I think one of those two shades would be a good contouring shade for me.  (: thanks!
