Is anyone else having this issue? I apply my moisturizer and wait til its soaked in and i then apply Benefit's porefessional only on the t-zone and around my cheeks where I have more visible pores.. I use other primers for the rest of my face. My foundation goes on seamlessly but when I go in with concealer (usually Tarte Shape Tape) and I start to blend it out, my foundation starts to move around and come off!! I have waited for my foundation to dry and I still have the same problem... I always have to go in with more foundation to fix it! Does anyone else have this problem? I've tried using the Nars Creamy concealer to see if it was just the Shape tape causing the issue but the same thing happened.. I started to think maybe it was my beauty blender causing the problem but I never had this problem until I started using the Porefessional primer.
I received a sample of Lancome's Bienfait Teinté BB Cream (in shade 1/Porcelaine) and returned to the store a week later to buy it - only to find it's not carried there anymore! I also see that it's out of stock online. Will Sephora restock this item or are they phasing it out?
BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector came with a christmas skin giftset. I just used it for the first time yesterday. First, I thought it smelled terrible. Second, it didn't feel so good going on. Third, it made my skin red, splochy, and my pores huge. Clearly, I had some reaction to it. I do have sensitive skin, but not overly terribly so. Anyone else have the same problem? What in the product might be causing the reaction?
Am I the only one who can't stand Tarte Shape Tape? UGH it is so drying for me, and I have purchased two tubes of it now on two different occasions because I have been so convinced by all the raving (especially from girls with dry skin) that I should love it. Alas, I am in search of a good long-lasting, full coverage, yet hydrating concealer for the under eyes. I have tried and am not a fan of Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer or Urban Decay Naked Skin. However, I am open to any other suggestions! Thanks!
I'm thinking of buying this foundation based on a recommendation but it's pricey so I wanna get as many testimonials as I can, so for anyone who has used this foundation: have you found any problems with transferring, settling, creasing or cakey-ness?
I have been wanting to get the Make Up Forever Matte Velvet Foundation and the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Foundation but I don't know what shades to get. My old foundation are Smashbox Studio Skin in 0.5 and Clinique Superbalanced Silk in 01 Silk Porcelain. I have a hectic and busy life right now and I don't have time to go in store and get shade matched. Please Help!!!!
second question of the day How do you set foundation? I've heard of baking and I know the LM one is good but im thinking about trying the airspun drugstore powder first option 2: but if I don't need to bake what do I do? I was thinking about trying the NARS light reflecting pressed setting powder or do I try a colored pressed powder? I really need advice.
I've been reading reviews on Kat Von D's foundation & to me it seems that it would cover my 8 inch heart surgery. If it has the full coverage to cover serious acne scars then it should cover the scar on my chest. I have pale skin. Does anyone else think so?
I plan on going into sephora and getting color iq and getting a sample (am I allowed to to get more than one sample at a time?) A little about my skin: I have some acne. Mostly patches and everytime I use a foundation it sticks to those patches even though I do exfoliate. My skin does get a little red. I have combination skin... but I do tend to get a little oily throughout the day What im looking for: Maybe something matte but also looks fresh and dewy. Something that wont look cakey, esp around my nose creases which i've always had problems with. Also something that will cover up pimples without making them look cakey. Im also looking for something to wear this summer so not something heavy and gross. If someone could list some down below that would be great!
I have combination to oily skin and buy my foundation accordingly. I have a foundation that I thought I really liked only I've been finding that at the end of the day while my foundation looks really good from a distance, it looks cakey and broken up close up. I'm confident that my primer, powder, and setting spray aren't the problem. Am I applying too much or is the formula just all wrong?
i currently looking for a full coverage concealer. right now i use make up forever concealer which it does work but it doesn't seem to really cover my acne or dark spots. when i apply it my red spots are still really visible no matter how much i use. any suggestions? thank you
I have a friend that has been using Bare Minerals for quite some time and her skin looks amazing! It also only takes her 5 minutes to apply her entire face. I hate having to take so much longer to apply my liquid foundation then having to set it. I am wanting a powder foundation, that will give me a natural finish and medium coverage. I have combo skin that gets worse in the summer. Looking for any recommendations. Price isn't an issue just wanting something that works. Also not needing it to contain sunscreen as I use a sunscreen prior to my foundation. Thanks in advance!!
I have the Sephora contouring 101 face palette, but I have seen that a lot of brands now have cream contouring palettes. I have been interested in getting one, but I'm unsure if I need one or what the pros and cons are to them.
I've been using the MAC MSF Natural in Dark Deep for years, wanted to switch it up and try something different. Went in Sephora and asked for something similar and I was shown Sephora MicroSmooth powder in 40 Tan. When I got home the colors look WAY different next to each other. Has anyone else tried this powder as a dupe and are the same color as me in the MAC MSF? Was the Sephora powder to light?
I've been looking for good brushes for powder and contour/blush and am stuck which ones to choose..!! I use KVD contour palette and Laura Mercier's translucent powder for everyday makeup routine. Any suggestions? 🤔
So I have really dry skin and have been using the MUFE Face and Body foundation. Unfortunately, that one has been discontinued and replaced with the Water Blend one. I was originally going to get that but I've read reviews that it's just not as great as the Face and Body so I decided to search for a new foundation and found the Rainforest of the sea. I tried it out today and omg it was a MESS! It clung to dry patches on my skin and revealed my skin in a way I never thought it looked like!!! I am so disapponted but I really wanna keep it. anyone got any tips for it? Like if adding a drop of oil will help? Or should I get the MUFE Water Blend/ Ultra HD foundation stick. PLEASE HELP!!!
Hi, guys! I live in the MIDDLE. OF. NOWHERE right now so I can't actually get to a department store, Sephora, Ulta, CVS....anything, which makes it impossible for me to find a matching foundation. I ordered a bunch of color samples from Choix to see if any match me, and of course, not a single one does. But I was wondering, if I swatched them (and some foundations I ownI) on me in natural sunlight and posted a picture, would anyone be able to help me out? Or just give opinions on what shades in any formula that I should look into? It's a bit sad always looking like a floating head in photos. My face always looked either too dark or too pink! I think everyone understands the struggle to a point.

So I've noticed when I used a setting powder on my forehead and under eye area, the texture of my face becomes very visible with little bumps prominently appearing. Also, it makes my skin look extremely dry throughout the day, which is really weird because my forehead area gets very oily in a few hours. I have oily skin, though the skin in the under eye area is more normal. I always moisture and use an under eye primer. I've been using the Cover Fx loose setting powder. Any tips? Should I stick with loose powders or try pressed powders?
