I have pretty oily skin and i've been running into the problem of my pressed powders like my blush and bronzer getting a layer of matted product (i'm assuming from the oil transferring from my brushes) Im pretty good about cleaning my brushes regularly but i haven't found a solution to get rid of this weird film and i really don't want to waste product. Any suggestions appreciated!
I use Laura mercier silk creme foundation and just had to buy a new bottle but i do NOT like her new updated oil free silk creme, I even tried the moisturizing too . Its not the Same coverage as the original. I feel the original was a little thicker and had better coverage. Is there another foundation brand that has similar coverage as the original silk creme foundation? I also have acne scars and I like something med to full. Nothing too full coverage as kate Von d , and that is why I use to love Laura mercier silk creme. So sad it changed. . Any suggestions would be great!!!
I purchased this and LOVE the color. It's perfect for me. However, like others, I'm not sure I love the formula, I can't seem to pick up enough on my brush. Do you have any recommendations for another blush in that color? Would the peach toned Hourglass blush be an option? Thanks in advance.
Hi all, I'm hoping for some of your pro's and con's for both foundations. I've purchased NARS Sheer Glow before and really loved it - it was pretty close to a perfect formula for me! I haven't owned Urban Decay's Naked Skin foundation but have used on multiple occasions and am interested in trying it out. Is there a large gap in quality or wear? Which do you prefer and why? They are pretty close in price (Naked retails for $39 and Sheer Glow for $45) but at times that slight difference can seem like a lot to a college student. Thanks!
I saw your video on YouTube showing Derma Color makeup being used on someone with hyperpigmintaion all over her face. My problem is I have an olive color complextion and my skin issues are vitaligo around my mouth and hairline. I also have malasma on my cheeks and each side of my chin and its dark brown. Can I use that makeup that was used in the video? You have two different color pallets so I don't know which is right for me.
YSL TOUCHÉ ÉCLAT BLUR PRIMER- The directions say to apply under foundation. I want to know if you can use/apply under powder foundation or is this mainly a primer for liquid foundation? Currently, I use hourglass mineral primer and mufe duo matte powder foundation and I'm in love, but I'm always looking to try something new. Thoughts??
I have worn Bare Minerals for years, but want to try a liquid foundation again. I've heard great things about the Koh Gen Do, but there are very few shades, it's very expensive, and I don't know which shade to order. Can someone help me, please? My skin is more pink, and I'm always tan in the summer, so don't want a shade that is going to wipe me out.
Can anyone advise me as to whether or not they had problems with this foundation settling into fine lines and wrinkles? Givenchy Photo'Perfexion Fluid Foundation SPF 20 http://www.sephora.com/photo-perfexion-fluid-found ation-spf-20-pa-P235346?skuId=1162247&shade_code=1 ... I've read through a bunch of the reviews, and it looks like this one might be okay for those of us who are starting to get wrinkly. Thx
I received a sample of Luminous Silk and just love it. My color id in this foundation is 5. However, I'm intrigued by Maestro Fusion (id is 5.5) and Designer Lift also, but neither of these are available in stores within 100 miles. My questions are these: 1. how do I compare these 3? how do I know which one I should choose? 2. what color should I get in Designer Lift should I choose to purchase this one?
Anyone on here familiar with this product? I saw this on Nordtrom's site and I kinda want to try but I've never heard of this particular foundation and I can't find many reviews on it. Any help would be appreciated
Hello, so my color iq is 3Y03 which is my current shade of 120 for Makeup Forever powder. But, I would like to try the Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Foundation Powder and am a bit confused on which shade to get. Thanks for the help!
hi i need help finding my perfect shade on estee lauder double wear i am an nc35 on mac studio fix fluid... i have been searching and think that i could be between tawny and cashew .. whic one would you recomend
So I have tried so many different foundation over the past 2 weeks in hopes of finding my new Holy Grail one. I guess MUFE HD in 120 is my best match. Most people have a lighter face and darker neck/body, but due to my hyper pigmentation my face is darker, so the 120 evens everything out. I have been on an acne treatment which has dried my face out, so the HD is clinging to my dry patches regardless of what moisturizer, serum, primer I use. So then comes LM Moisturizing foundation in Bamboo Beige (which is nearly a perfect match to 120) i like the feel (or lack there of) my problem is, is that it says medium to full coverage and I am only getting the results of a tinted moisturizer. I use my beauty blender, which was suggested and the new primer that was suggested was MUFE equalizer 4.( i think it's the hydrating one) I have tried building, and am not getting any better results. I refuse to return this one, even though I feel like for $48 it's expensive and i don't think you get much product. So I would like to make this work, just need a suggestion for better coverage. I have been setting it lightly with the LM translucent loose powder. Thanks everyone
I went into my local store just to browse the Surratt line. While I was there I decided to look at the Becca Complexion Creme. I already knew which color to select (Olive) when an associate came over and asked if I'd like to be color matched. I agreed. Boy, oh boy she said I had have red undertone. RED?! I didn't say anything, but when she said my match in Becca would be "mink", I did what "Miranda" did in Devil Wears Prada , and pursed my lips. Why such a big dispariety ? I am "Olive" in the particular formula. Lesson learned "don't always trust the color IQ",
So while browsing here in BT I have noticed a lot of us having issues and horror stories about finding the correct foundation match, have love hate relationships with certain brands/colors. I remember going through so many sample/purchases of hoping this will be something I like or will be my HG foundation, but would wind up in disappointment . The frustrations of trying to find not only the right shade, but also the tone/coverage and ingredients that make us feel comfortable and look good on the skin. Ohh how many counters I visited and tried so many brands in order to find the one. I mean it is sometimes so exhausting - because sometimes MUA's not listening your preferences (ex: I am on a warmer side and with slightly yellowish undertone and I am given a sample of cool/pink /neutral foundation) or also the lighting the stores sometimes is no help. Other times when we ask for samples so we can try it at home and in natural lighting to see if it is the perfect color match and coverage MUA's/SA's give us a tiny sample - which barely covers our whole face/enough for one try and other times they are very generous about it or the look we get "oh she is just wants a sample and not buying anything!!!" On top of that we always have to worry about the seasons changing and us trying to find a shade lighter or darker. So let's share the stories and your ways of finding the right shade/tone of the foundation.
Oh god. Today, I tried out Benefit Hello Flawless foundation sample I've got weeks ago. Recently, I was actively searching for a foundation that suits me better than Nars Sheer glow and was considering between Chanel and TF. When I applied this HF foundation, I thought I found my HG foundation. It was really the best foundation I've ever worn...so smooth, right coverage, my skin looked flawless! and... After washing my face, I found some red bumpy breakouts (whitehead-ish, something you can easily pop up, not a big inflammatory one) on my face...and when was the last time this happened to me? It was when I used Bare Minerals mineral powder foundation. Wait, is this Bismuth Oxychloride? I did my research, and yes, there you are! I'm just so sad. I immediately ordered this foundation from Sephora since I just knew! it's the perfect foundation..but didn't know that it's that plus Bismuth Oxychloride. I was just a step away, and now I know I have to return it. SO SAD!
Hi! I was wanting to try a Mercier tinted moisturizer but since I am a fair redhead and I know I'm tough to match I'm not sure which shade to order. I use Make Up Forever HD in 110 in winter and 115 in summer if that helps. Have any ideas?
I have been using Clinique Stay Matte Foundation and 05 is perfect color for my face. I would like to try a Clinique foundation that contains sunscreen but not sure which color in the other foundations would be close to 05. Any suggestions would be really appreciated.
I use Benefit oxygen wow foundation in "petal" and was looking to step up a shade for summer. Is the "honey" a bit darker or a just a different hue? Trying to decide between "honey" and "champagne". I am mostly Irish...pretty fair with red tones but I do tan in summer. I can't make it out to a store to try it out in person. Any advice appreciated
