OMG! Have you all heard about the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation? It isn't out yet and launching June 15th! I have watched and seen so many reviews on it with my favorite YouTube Beauty Girls...and it looks so flawless and it just has the best reviews. I was on the Too Faced website, and the price shows $52.00! Which is very pricey for my budget...but would it be same price on Sephora? I don't buy from Sephora that often. Usually just when my foundation runs out, I like to try out different foundations. Right now I am using the Clinique Stay Matte Foundation. And like it so far... Would you all switch your foundation to buy the new Too Faced Born This Way? Any thoughts or comments?
I'm not sure if anyone knows but MUFE is revamping this formula. im kind of sad, since i do like the original. And its a really good match :/ if you search for thestyleandbeautydoctor she has a review up and theres a chart for the new shades. Mine is very low so il be waiting til i run out and the new one is available to try. My shade is 117 which is now Y225. I guess il keep my bottle to compare the color as well. 40 shades anyone else/ thoughts? I also read on another blog: "Has the formula being changed?" -As Dany said - they "did not change the formula, but added new ingredients to make it better". * hyaluronic acid (to bind moisture to the skin) * amino acid coated pigments (to stabilize pigment) * mineral mica (to create radiance)
Can someone please tell me a foundation that doesn't make my face look all caky!! I feel like all the ones I try I end up having major cake face! I'm not looking for full coverage, but just a little more than a tint. Please someone help!!
Hi! I'm running out of my Dior Hydra with SPF and am looking for something new to try. Lately it's been making my face feel really oily. I tried the Boscia and I hate it. It's so runny. Any other recommendations? I'm 39 and don't wear a ton of makeup but always wear moisturizer.
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 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).
I've always wanted to try wearing foundation, but I don't want to put my money towards something I found out I don't need. What exactly is foundation used for? When should I start wearing it? My skin is clear most of the time, except for the occasional spot on my forehead every once in a while. Usually I would cover that pimple up with concealer, and would just see no use in wearing foundation. Please help!
Hi there! I am here to discuss, based on users' experiences, what is the best foundation for combo/dry skin. I am a 16-year-old teenager that is getting tired of drugstore foundations. It makes me look cakey, it rubs off easily and never stays on. More importantly, they don't help my skin. Due to hormonal changes, I am unfortunately leaning towards the dry territory. My eyebrows are the worst. I have brown hair, but instead of having brown eyebrows they're white from the constant flakiness around my eyebrows, in my eyebrows and eyelids. This all started once hot weather appeared. Before that, I was just pure dry during the winter. My face would burn or would have a burning sensation from dry skin. It was so bad that you could see the flakiness from miles away (exaggerating, of course). My friends kept telling about it. Way before that, I was nothing but oily. Right now, my face is a bit oily, but it's more on the dry side. As I'm writing this post, my face feels like cement but it has some oiliness going on. Any foundations out there to help my situation? I don't have a budget.
I was wondering, if I am darker in skin tone. Would a highlighter with peach undertones look good on my skin tone or ashy. I am interested in the champagne pop new becca highlighter. Thanks in advance.
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
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
Hello! I'm 20, with fair skin and I have oily/sensitive acne prone skin, and I have yet to find a decent foundation routine. I have large pores on my cheeks, a ton of blackheads and rough skin on my forehead, like sort of checkered fine lines if that makes any sense. Every single foundation routine I've tried so far just accentuates the awful look of my skin, no primers, that I've tried seem to make any difference. Does anyone have any tips/brushes/makeup products to suggest? They all need to be long-lasting as well, preferably a luxury one, I never seem to like drugstore ones. Products I've tried: -Beauty blender -Stippling Brush -Revlon Colorstay -Lacome Teint Idol -Covergirl ready set gorgeous -Loreal Tru Match -Loreal Tru Match lumiere -Two Faced Primed and Poreless -Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer -Smashbox photofinish -The porefessional -MAC studio fix powder -Lancome LaBase pore primer -Clinique Superprimer -Laura mercier translucent powder -MUFE Skin equalizer step 1 smoothing -Benefit Hello Flawless powder Thanks so much!
I have sensitive combination skin, and I'm allergic to chemical sunscreens. I'm looking for a liquid foundation for a photo shoot and would ideally like to still look like my skin is glowing while keeping my t zone matte. Fragrance free would be a huge plus. Any recommendations are welcomed!
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?
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 ...
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 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!
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.
I recently ordered Georgia Armani luminous silk foundation in shade 7 and I love it; however, the color is too dark since I haven't gotten my summer "tan" as of yet. What lighter shade would you recommend?
I finally caved and ordered two to see what the fuss was all about. Yep, I think I hate them. Why can I not get any color? I am using the Sephora pro angled blush brush. Is this wrong? Why is my color payoff so sheer...I feel like I'm missing something here.
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?!
