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

Ideal holiday makeup!
Hi girls! Ok so I'm going on holiday in August to Cyprus with my other half who is currently out in Cyprus working with the army. I need some help on makeup etc. I have combination skin and I have a feeling it will be more oily in summer than dry! I'm looking for a non expensive foundation that'll last in 35/40 degree heat!! What is the best foundation for this type of whether e.g cream, mousse etc.I'd like good coverage due to blemish scars. Any help would be great   P.S due to having blemish scars etc I was wondering if anybody knows any tips or advice that can help get rid of them or help make them less noticeable with products etc??? thank you

Setting Powder
I am just wondering what is a good, highly recommended setting powder?     I have combination skin, so by the time it hits say after lunch, my makeup looks fine...but it just tends to get a little oily around my t-zone area.   I have two foundations, but use only one or the other depending on my mood. lol  One is the MUFE Mat Velvet and the other is the Clinique Stay-Matte Oil-Free Foundation.   I do have a little bit of the MUFE HD Microfinish one.  I have been using that as a setting powder...but wondering if there is another one that is highly recommended? Or just stick with that one?   Any suggestions?

This or that?
I am trying to decided between a couple of products and I wanted some thoughts on certain products.     First... Eye shadow palettes...

Cover FX Custom Drops Darker Tones
So I blindly bought this in G80 and N70 online because I can't make it to the store right now and am curious how the other deeper shades are. For reference I'm all over the place in terms of foundation shades, but I fall into the NC45 category and 2y-3y 11-12 (though it's still inaccurate). I bought 2 of them to either lighten or darken my foundation and to just match my skin completely, but I'm not sold on the results. I have strong yellow undertones but had to venture in to the N range to try out 70, and N70 isn't a perfect match for me, so I could use it to lighten foundation. G80 is better, but is a tad light (though I mixed both with argan oil so that could have added a white cast of something)  Now my question is why is N90 and G70 OOS and has anyone tried out the N90 and N100 and what is it like?

Primer Suggestions? oily, pores, wear
I'm trying to find a new primer, something to hide pores and help control oil (not a fan of matte BUT i need oil control), and hopefully something that helps extend makeup wear. Right now i'm using up the last little bit of a sample of CoverFX calming primer - nothing great IMO and a sample of Korres greek yoghurt primer - better than the CoverFX but still doesn't do enough for my pores and oily skin... These are a few I was interested in, let me know what you think   http://www.sephora.com/step-1-skin-equalizer-P3939 65?skuId=1669167http://www.sephora.com/primed-pore ...

my setting powder takes away the glow from my foundation
hi guys! I'm currently using Laura Mercier Oil Free Photo Edition Silk Foundation which gives me a beautiful glow. I need to set this with setting power, I use MAC's loose translucent setting powder, and whenever I apply the power, my skin loses the glow and the foundation looks a little cakey. it isn't the foundation because this has happened with several different foundations. i have also used several powders and have the same problem. i apply the powder with a big powder brush. any suggestions? thanks xo

90's makeup party - I could use some advice!
I'm doing my sister's makeup this Friday for an event with a 90's theme.  I was quite young in the 90's and wasn't playing with makeup so I don't really remember what was popular.   I've been researching different trends online but there are a lot.  So I ask of you, my beauty friends, when you think 90's makeup, what stands out the most?

Josie Maran Powder Foundation, your thoughts?
I tried a sample last year of Josie Maran's liquid foundation and remember enjoying it. I remember being impressed by the fact that it successfully changed color to match my skin.   I was looking at this foundation specifically because I start out fairly pale at the beginning of the summer, and definitely get a few shades darker (I wear sunscreen, I promise!) by the end, and I don't feel like buying 2 different foundation compacts. I'd prefer the color changing pigments, because I know they work. I also would prefer a compact because I'll be traveling a lot this summer and don't want to haul full bottles around.    I was planning on picking up the powder foundation for the sale, but after reading the reviews on here, I'm worried about oxidization, which seems to be a problem among some of the reviewers, and that worries me. I am half Japanese, with definite yellow and olive tones to my skin, but I am nowhere near orange.    Does anyone have experience with this foundation? Can you enable or disable me from purchasing it?

Cover FX Custom Drops Match
Hey everybody!   I need some outside opinions on the Cover FX Custom Cover Drops. I have very dry skin and I can never find a foundation that is hydrating or doesn't cling to my dry patches (nose and chin mostly) so I use the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer in Tawny, which matches me perfectly (I'm a 2y09 according to Color IQ).    So I have my regular moisturizer and I'm hoping to use these to create a custom product. Sometimes I want a bit more coverage without piling on product so these drops were like angels descending from on high for me. I'm waffling between G50 and G60 but I'm not sure which one will be just right. I feel as though G60 would be better, but I'm hesitant to write off G50.   Which do you think would be better?
