Foundation med to full coverage for dry skin?
I am searching for a foundation to help cover uneven skin tone and acne scars. I have combo to dry skin type. I tried Kat Von d and Estée lauder double wear but my skin was too dry and looked cakey . I really would prefer something more natural looking vs matte finish. In the past I have used bobbi brown but my formula was discontinued (extra repair foundation) and not completely happy with what I was put in as a substitute (bobbi brown moisture rich). It's not very long lasting.

Tarte or Bare Minerals?
I'm looking for a new foundation, and after swatching a bunch of options in store I've narrowed it down to either Tarte's Amazonian Clay foundation or Bare Minerals Bareskin foundation. I like that Bare Minerals has a little higher SPF and my wallet likes the price better, but Tarte matched my skin just a little better (though the difference is probably only noticeable under bright light) and it felt a little more natural on my skin. Which one should I go for?

Ambient Lighting Powders for Fair Skin
Hello everyone,   I am sort of new to the Ambient Powders game, I got my first one in Diffused Light a few weeks ago. I have been really enjoying using it in my makeup routine, so I started thinking about getting another one. I am not really considering getting the palette, because I don't have use for Radiant Light at all. I also think (but I may be wrong) that Dim Light would be too light to use it all over my face. Here is my question: which other one would be a good choice for someone with VERY fair skin with pinkish undertones and a little redness in the skin?

YSL Touche Eclat Pen
Maybe there is already an existing thread on this topic but I am torn as to which shade to choose. I know this won't "conceal" my dark circles. I want a product that will brighten my undereye but won't take too long for when I am in a hurry. I love my Bobbi Brown Corrector/Concealer and I live by them but when I am in a hurry, I need something quick.    For reference, my skin shades are:    - Nars Sheer Glow - Fiji - Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick 3.5 Warm Beige

YSL Fusion Ink Foundation
I want to get the new YSL Fusion Ink foundation but I don't know what shade to get since there are no descriptions of what the color is like. Some foundations that match my skin tone and that I've used are: Giorgio Armani shade 4.75, Smashbox Halo shade #3, Cover FX mineral powder shade # G30. What shade would I get in the YSL Fusion Ink?

Pigmented powder or translucent?
Shall I continue using my Laura Mercier smooth finish powder foundation over my liquid foundation or set it with a translucent instead? Im heading to Sephora in a few days and I figured I would ask here to figure out ahead of time.      SO IF its better to stick with the "pigmented" powder, which is a better/cheaper alternative for LM.

Mat Velvet +
Hello all, I am looking into the Make Up Forever Mat velvet foundation, I am quite fair oily/acne prone skin, so I would like to try this foundation.  I believe my undertone would be considered cool (blue veins on wrist) I have tried Estee Lauder Double Wear in 1N1 and feel that it is kind of dark for me, and I feel the foundation is just not working as much as I would like it to be as far as oiliness as the day goes on.  I was thinking of trying #15 Alabaster or #25 Warm Ivory, I am some distance from a Sephora store so testing it out isn't really a option.  I was also curious what everyone thinks of the Make up forever setting powder or what would be a good option with Mat Velvet.   Thank you all so much!

Matte vs Shiny/Glossy BB cream
How do you choose between a matte and more of a dewy look? Does it depend on age?  Do younger people want more matte while older people need more dewy?   I have really dry skin, with some really fine wrinkles around the eye and large pores near my nose, and I cant choose between a matte or glossy :/    I tried Laura Mercier but it felt like halloween makeup   The tarte one glides on really well but I am not sure if matte is right for me?

Powder Foundation?
Hey, so being EXTREMELY pale, as in, NOTHING matches me, apart from Nars Chantilly concealer, is there any brand/color that matches that color in a powder foundation form? I'm just getting so frustrated with nothing ever matching, and I don't want to go around wearing concealer as foundation lol. Please help?? My skin is combo, but it doesn't matter if the product is more drying, as I can work around that.

Mineral or Powder Foundation for Oily Skin
So I'm just looking for a powder foundation ( More loose than pressed.) I have used bare minerals, original and ready go, and I didn't really like those that much. The color selection is terrible, I'm in between shades and the shades I have are dark if I go to medium coverage. Also, when I go to work, it feels tacky on my skin afterwards from all the sweat.. its just not nice feeling at all. I have used the benefit powder and I really liked it but it was too light! (toasted beige) I was considering the laura mercier powder (pure honey)  but I'm weary of the word luminous.  I just don't want to look glittery.    I'm looking for something that either has a matte, semi matte, or natural finish.  I have combo/oily skin so something that can help with that and somewhat long wearing More loose powder then pressed but whatever helps.  In color iq im in 3Y09, so around medium beige to tan with warm undertones I'm just looking for something that I can wear lightly to school or put over my makeup forever matt velvet foundation.
