What is it about MAC products that cause breakouts
     I normally don't have a problem with most makeup products. My skin is okay with Makeup forever, Bobbi brown, Hourglass, Guerlain, and Giorgio Armani most of the times. but when it comes to MAC items, I break out almost instantly and it takes more than 2 weeks to fully recover. it just makes my skin to warm up, cause black heads, and break out.    I checked the ingredients and they don't really have anything that might cause breakouts. (I used prep and prime natural radiance and the mineralize moisture foundation)  if anything, MUFE has more of ingredients that normally break me out like parabens..    does this happen to anyone else?  I was going to purchase their pro longwear concealer but really don't know if I should..

Never ever any foundation suited me, suggest me some good one
I tried many foundations (acc to me) from drugstore to high end, but any foundation didn't match me i tried sephora color IQ test thrice, it suggested me stilla foundation, i bought it hoping it would suit, but it made me look dark at least one to two shades dark being asian, never want to look dark, when i remove foundation half side, i can clearly see dark and light shades of my face recently tried Dior foundation also, same problem. I have combi- dry skin, with very oily t-zone and very dry cheeks, i am 26. Please suggest me good foundation which has many shades, that i can find one which suits my color perfectly, like second skin.

Master Class III Palette from Smashbox
Has anyone gotten the Smashbox Master Class III Palette? I've been eyeing this one up, but I have to wait a few months to get it since I've already spent over my budget for the time-being! ;-)   I found some closeup photos of it and swatches of it online via cosmeticblur blog, and all the colors look so absolutely amazing!    Does anyone know if this is in the permanent line or is it limited edition? If it's limited edition will it still be here in a few months? I just can't stop looking at all the colors and really don't want to miss out on this one! *drool*

any love for Elizabeth Arden?
So, I've been around these boards for a while but I hardly ever see anyone mention Elizabeth Arden. I was never crazy about any of the perfumes, but has anybody been to a Liz Arden counter lately or looked at the site? There are some really beautiful lipsticks and eyeshadows. My friend just purchased the bronzer and it is gorgeous. Also, the Ceramide line of skincare has been a favorite for a long time. I know many people think of the line as for "older" women, but I was just wondering people's thoughts?

Makeup for the office?
I have a basic 9-5 office job, and lately, I've been over-doing it with the makeup! 1) because I have a lot of new goodies and 2) because it's fun! I was wondering what a good neutral/natural would look like. Show me some looks or what you guys wear during the week! Thanks :-)

What's my color?
I need to upload a pic soon...but I am very pale with rosacea (redddd cheeks) that I cover up with foundation. I just dyed my hair a light reddish brown. I am totally clueless as to what color blush would look good on me. I have several: Nars Orgasm (too shimmery for my liking) Tarte True Love (too red), Tarte Achiote (too dark), Tarte Peaceful (not bad for a light coral), Stila Color Converter in Peony (not a fan of cream blush), and Tarte Flush (too purply), oh and also a NYX in a medium pink color, it's not too bad. I really do love MATTE & POWDER blushes.............maybe someone could give me a few suggestions. Thanks!

No middle ground
I either get extremely dry to the point where my face looks like a desert, or I get extremely oily to the point where my face looks like I went swimming in the BP oil spill. I don't see a direct correlation between hormonal or environmental factors, and I wash my skin with oil controling soap along with using an oil controling lotion. Besides being completely at a loss when it comes to controlling my skin type, I am also a newbie at high end makeup. I would perfer a light to medium coverage but I would like buildability. Also, stating the obvious, it needs to be mattifying. Any suggestions of a foundation and finishing powder that can help me out? To set the record straight, no I was not attempting to go for the dewey look in any of these pictures

Is anyone else loving the Givenchy Fall 2014 Collection?
Saw Temptalia's post a couple of days ago on the Givenchy Fall collection for this year, and it's all so beautiful -- from the packaging to the colors. I mean, look at the burgundy leather encasement for the Le Rouge lipsticks! However, the only one I will probably get is the Blush Memoire De Forme Pop Up Jelly Blush in Rose Extravagant -- am I crazy to want to drop $37 on a blush?! :-\ Yikes... However, I feel that between the color and the packaging, it's something that I can admire for a while...as long as it doesn't dry up at some point.   From Make Up 4 All blog   From Fashion Trend Seeker

Q. COLLEGE?!
Hello all!   As you can tell from the title I will be on my way to college very soon! This means I will pretty much be on my own money-wise (with only minimal help from parents). I want to be responsible with my money, but I also don't want to give up some of my favorite makeup brands (first world problems am I right?). This applies to skincare too!   Some questions I have: When do I save and when do I splurge? How long do certain products last (meaning how long before I run out?)? How can I get the most out of my products (making them last as long as possible)? What's a healthy budget amount for makeup? Per year, per month? What are the bare minimum products I should use? One of my goals is to not be excessive with the amount of products I have! Just the basics!

WHATS GOING ON HERE?!?
I saw the Sephora liquid moisturizer in the sale section.  Watched it for three days, marked down from $22 to $11.  I use that stuff right out of the shower, so I was worried about it being discontinued.  I made A SIX HOUR ROUND TRIP just to get it.  When I got to the store, the SA said it was $22 and not on sale!  I whipped out my phone to show her AND IT HAD DISAPPEARED FROM THE SALE SECTION!!  She made me feel like I was trying to pull one over on her.  Did any of you guys see it? Or am I going crazy?!?
