Which Nars lipliner should I use with the Nars velvet matte pencil in "Dolce Vita"?

Help with brushes?
  Lo and behold, it's my humble brush/sponge collection! (Yes, this was right before I washed them.

cover fx custom cover drops: color match help!
Hey guys! I have a question. I am looking to purchase the cover fx custom cover drops and I need help with a shade match. I am in shade porcelain in the Bobbi Brown foundation stick and I looked online at the sephora color iq and it said that color P10 would be a good match for me. But, of course they don't carry that color in the drops version. So, could someone suggest another shade for me? i was thinking either N10 or P20. I am normally a classic ivory in most foundations. Thanks

BEACH VACATION MAKEUP IDEAS
First off, let me be clear I do not like beach vacations. I hide under a huge sunhat under an umbrella, and get panic attacks at the thought of the sun touching my face - even when I'm wearing Bioderma's SPF 100 + Institute Esthederm's 100% block!   We do 4 beach vacations a year because the children like them, and I never have any idea about what makeup to take with me, or when to wear what. So I note that all the other women look ultra glamorous day and night, while I look ... lost.   Please, please, please give me tips for what makeup to wear to the pool/beach/dinner/breakfast/bar/stores etc.? Specific product ideas would be very welcome indeed!   Thanks in advance for any ideas and advice you are willing to share!

Best Korean BB creams?
What is the best Korean BB cream you have tried? I like how Korean BB cream tend to have a bit more coverage, but find it difficult to find one that's fair and yellow-toned and not too perfume-y. Do you have any recommendations for someone with fair-to-light combination acne-prone skin?   So far I have tried: -Skin 79 (colour works okay for me, heavy fragrance) -Dr Jart black label (shade is too dark, good coverage) -Dr Jart water fuse (feels good on skin but very sheer) -A.C. Care (pink-toned, best coverage out of the ones I've tried) -Hanskin (also pink-toned, oxidizes a lot)

I am travelling to Shanghai in July!
Hi guys, I am excited about travelling to Shanghai this summer! What are some good Asian skincare and makeup products that I should check out while I'm there? I know a lot of Korean, Japanese, and Chinese brands are available in Shanghai. For reference, I have NC15 combination acne-prone skin, and like natural-looking makeup. I am trying to avoid fragrance if possible.   It's ironic that I am asking this because I have lived in Shanghai for 15 years. I am Asian but have very little knowledge about Asian beauty products!

Charcoal brow color
I'm forever looking for an ashy (rather than warm) toned brow pencil, such as a charcoal color.  My hair is very dark brown, almost black.   I love the Sephora collection brow pencil in soft charcoal, however, it is tiny (0.003oz) for the price.  It adds up fast when using a brow pencil every day--even if not used excessively.  I prefer pencils that are waterproof, or at least have a waxy consistency with staying power.  Does anyone know of a perfect color?  Thanks!

Eye shadow palette and other make up recommendations for beginner?
Hi I'm a Korean American with black hair, brown eyes and a light yellow skin tone. I just became interested in learning about make up and wanted to know what are some great eyes shadow palettes to start out with. However, I will purchase the naked basics palette but don't know which full size 12 shade of the naked palettes to get. I want neutral to everyday make up looks. What else do I need to start my very own make up kit? How can I make my face make up last long from having my skin very oily all day? I love having my eos lip balm because it keeps my lips moist but I  wanted to know if I should get a hydrating lip gloss or lip stick? The shade I prefer is a rosy pink. Also, what's the best eye liner ? I do not want to wear false eye lashes ?

Armani Luminous Silk foundation help!
  Hi everyone:   For the last few days I have been trialing Giorgio Armani's Luminous Silk and I'm really loving the finish. I usually wear MUFE Face & Body but I find that the Armani is less oily as the day goes by.   The issue I'm having is with the shade... I feel like even with the current shade I'm wearing (#6), it makes me look orange.   Some background: I got a sample of this in 5.5 and wore it for a day but it made my face look really orange compared to my neck. I went into Sephora to get an associate's opinion and she agreed, and told me it was because I'm yellow toned and the 5.5 is too neutral for me, hence making me look orange/pink. She swatched the 6 beside the 5.5 on her hand, and she was right, even though the 2 shades appear to be the same darkness, the 5.5 was much too pink. So I took home a sample of the 6 and couldn't wait to try it. Swatched on the back of my hand and on the inside of my arm, the 6 blends in better than the 5.5 but seems just a touch too yellow/brown, but nothing that is noticeable.   Well, I put it on this morning and at first I thought that the 6 looked a hair too yellow for me. But the tone still seemed right. I was thinking of testing 5.75 because on the Color IQ (which I know isn't very accurate) it is less yellow, but looking at swatches online it looks darker and maybe a bit too pink (just a bit more yellow than 5.5).   But then...after finishing the rest of my make up and looking in the mirror again, my face still looks orange. Under certain lighting, I think my face looks fine. I've asked two people (hubby and a coworker) and they both don't think my face looks orange, but I sit beside a window at work and the natural light really shows how orange my face looks compared to my neck. I think it is an improvement from the 5.5, but it's still not my perfect color. Maybe I'm just TOO yellow?   This is very confusing as according to the color IQ the associate gave me yesterday (again, I know it's not accurate) I am 5y07 (SO YELLOW!) but I like to wear MUFE F&B in 20, or a 50/50 mixture of 20+34 and it seems to blend really well although those shades are 1y07 and 1r09, respectively. Maybe it's because they're so sheer so the undertone isn't as important?   I've included some photos... what are your thoughts? Minor difference that I shouldn't expect to match perfectly with my neck? What shade do you think I could try in LS next, or could it just be that this foundation just oxidizes too much for my skin?   I am wearing moisturizer (with sunscreen), Hourglass veil mineral primer, Armani LS and finished off with Marc Jacobs finishing powder.   Both photos are taken in office/fluorescent lighting, but facing a window with natural lighting (cloudy).     Thanks!!

Defected Nars Blush?
I don't know if it's just me, but my Nars Orgasm Blush has absolutely NO pigmentation. This is my first blush so when I bought it, I just assumed that blushes were supposed to be really light. A few months later, I realized my brush sucked so I blamed that and bought a new one. It made it better, but I still have to swirl it many times to get it to be even SLIGHTLY visible on my face and even then it fades about halfway through the day since there's hardly anything in the first place.    This is the only blush I own (I'm a blush newbie, as you can tell) so again, I thought it was supposed to be like that. But then I went in store and swatched the Clinique Cheek Pop and Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush and now I am seriously questioning the quality of my Nars blush. Is it just me? Is mine defected? Because by looking at the quality of it, I can't possibly understand how it could have any good reviews.    I feel like I should return it now, but I bought it around November so it's been awhile and it definitely looks used so I don't know if it's okay for me to return. But it sucks because it's SO expensive and it's so difficult to get any colour to show up on my face.   Here's a picture for reference. I swiped it at least 5 times on this swatch and as you can see it just looks like a sparkly rash. Ugh. (And I know the background looks dark, but it was fairly bright when I took it and it looks the same IRL)

I'm really interested in this nail color and seriously debating about the bronzer. I'm trying to decide what road to go down for bronzer, the new Estee Lauder illuminating gelee, or the new Guerlain Terracotta powders, or this beauty...

Free Gift from Sephora and Too Faced!
Earlier this month Sephora reached out to me and told me that I had been selected to receive the new #Tfnofiler Selfie Powders from Too Faced as a gift for my contributions on BeautyTalk. I had every intention of purchasing this palette when it came out so I was super excited by the opportunity to try it for free.   As a Canadian client I know myself and many others often feel overlooked by Sephora so that made being selected mean a little bit more to me.   I received the palette in the mail yesterday (all of the snow we've had in my area recently delayed mail by a week). After I have a chance to play with it and test it out a bit more I'll leave swatches and a review here

Contouring Contouring Contouring....
This is just a random rant post about...can you guess...? Contouring!! I am sick of hearing about contouring right now. I feel like the beauty industry has taken this concept and is absolutely beating everyone upside the head about it. Every makeup brand I can think of is promoting a magical contouring palette, youtube & Instagram is full of contouring tutorials and most should just be labeled "how to turn a woman into a drag queen." The crazy thing is that for most most women, contouring is not a part of our day-to-day beauty routine!! So why all this sense of urgency about contouring?? I have some ideas, but this isn't a column now is it?    Anyway, just ranting...

Do you start with your eye makeup or your face makeup?
I always start with my eyes so that if I mess up, I can wipe it off without having to disrupt my face makeup, and also so that my moisturizer has time to sink in. I do find that starting with the eyes can leave some skin near my eyes that doesn't have foundation on it because I don't want to get too close to my eyeliner, eyeshadow, etc.   I'm interested to know, do you start with your eyes or your face?

Travel palettes?
So I've been on the hunt for a good travel palette that I could customize with a powder, blusher, shadow, lipstick (maybe). I've been wanting something that I could just keep in my gym bag or purse for day-to-night touchups, or for the times I like to go hang out after my gym sessions. I'll be honest I dislike going elsewhere for my beauty needs. I like the satisfaction of purchasing from my favorite beauty brands and racking up rewards points. However, I looked all over Sephora and a product such as what I described doesn't exist. Yes, I found about 2-3 mini touchup palettes but the reviews weren't that great and of course being a darker-skinned woman I have to contend with getting the color right. Anyway, I ended up at Inglot and I was able to take advantage of their "Freedom System" which allowed me to put together my own palette with all the items I desired. Total cost was about $60-a bargain for all the full-sized items that went into that palette. The only drawback was that the palette was a little heavy and it doesn't have a mirror. But it just got me thinking why doesn't Sephora have a customized palette service (beyond just eyeshadows)? The SEPHORA COLLECTION brand carries such a broad range of product so it would seem doable within that brand.    Idk, has anyone else discovered a great travel palette that minimizes the need to carry around a bunch of stuff? I like the one I got from Inglot, but I'm still curious if there's anything else out there. Here's a pic of what I got:
