Foundation Help
Hey everyone. So I wear Make Up Forever's HD Foundation in the color 110. I feel I am a little to dark for this color so I mix it in with my Mac Pro Longwear NC 20. I need advice for getting a foundation color in Tarte as well as Cover FX.

Recommendations for a Foundation Primer
Hi Everyone,    I'm looking for a foundation primer. I've been looking at Make Up For Ever, Too Faced, or Laura Mercier. I've heard that these brands make really good primers. What do you guys recommend? Thanks in advance!

Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks vs Bobbi Brown vs ByTerry
So I have ordered 3 ByTerry Ombre Blackstar and waiting for them to come in the mail, but then I was in store today and saw that the LM Caviar Sticks are very similar and picked up Amethyst. Any BT-ers have any insight or comparisons for these products? Only because ByTerry seems really $$ for a cream eyeshadow stick but I've only seen rave reviews! I've also heard things about Bobbi Brown's Cream eyeshadow sticks as well.. hmmm....

Which is better?
Is liquid eyeliner better? Or gel? I've always used liquid with no problem, but if gel is better i'll switch over. Also, is the ABH dipbrow better, or the brow wiz? I would not say i have thick brows, but they are definitely not sparse.

Celestial Powder - Price per Ounce
Some time ago I posted about checking blush prices based on the actual price per ounce.   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Products/Blush-Pri ces-per-Ounce-can-be-Surprising/m-p/1459734#M13215   More recently, I was intrigued by the Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Powder in Candlelight.  It costs $44, which sounded about the same as the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder.    Then I noticed that many reviews noted the tiny size of the product.  So I did some comparisons:   -Hourglass Ambient is 0.35 oz for $45, or $129 per oz. -Guerlain Meteorites Compact is 0.35 for $62, or $177 per oz.  -Kevyn Aucoin Celestial is 0.11 oz for $44, or $400 per oz!   What is this powder made of, jewel dust?  It's off my list.

Best eye kohl? Most authentic?
I'm a huge fan of the Lancome eye kohl stick.  I also love my Thierry Mugler more authentic kohl.  And I even like the Maybelline Master Kajal.  I promise I really am working (hard!) this afternoon but suddenly I just needed to ask..what are the best eye kohls...pencil or other...out there?  Any reliable authentic eye kohls that are available in the US that won't lead to blindness?  Where and how can I get them?

Best way to set Double Wear
Hello all,   Im not huge on foundations normally because I have really dry skin. SURPRISINGLY the estee Lauder Double Wear actually looks the most flawless on my skin. Ive tried many and many, I work in makeup and skin care and I have found it to really suit my skin. Very unexpected since its usually better for oily skin.    Now my only problem is how to set it, or the best way to set it. I have a long day tomorrow with an event at the end of the day and not much time to do a face of makeup in between so I will have to do it at the beginning of the day and a similar situation in a week.    Best way or best powder or best spray to set this and make it last with no breaking up or anything funky??

Hautelook Experiences?
So thanks to the wonderful ladies on here, I am waiting with baited breath for the UD sale on Hautelook. This will be my first purchase with them. In the past, i have always ordered from either Sephora, or more recently I have been ordering a LOT from Nordies. I have googled them to find out some info about their shipping ( which i still can't  find prices on! ) but I have read a LOT of bad reviews. Can anyone fill me in on their experiences before i place my order when the sale goes live?

Foundation not staying on chin
Hey ladies, I hope someone can help me out! I have an issue with my make up not staying on my chin. As soon as I apply it, it looks different on my chin than on other parts of my face. It will be flawless and smooth on my cheeks but on my chin it will look patchy and a few hours later most of it is gone.  I usually prime with the hourglass veil primer but sometimes I switch it up. Sometimes I use concealer on my chin and if I do, its the MUFE full cover concealer. The foundations I rotate between are smashbox studio skin and bobbi brown BB cream.   Any ideas of how to prevent it from looking patchy then wearing off my chin?

Bite Beauty's Frozen Berries Limited Edition Collection
Hello all! So we all know about Canada's Maple Collection, but let's talk about this berry collection exclusive to the U.S.! Beautezine posted this picture on their Instagram:  https://instagram.com/p/2BTkPJzCTb/?taken-by=beaut ezine and made a comment about the US getting a berry collection. I have been looking through Instagram pictures with the #bitebeauty, and it appears there's an event called SBES (seems to be a Sephora University thing) going on today. There have been a few pictures posted already where a "Limited Edition Frozen Berry" lipstick is being made at the Bite Beauty table.
