I love Dior's Lip Glow, but is there another option I can try that's similar?
Dior's lip glow is a favorite of mine, I go through about one a year and I absolutely love it.     It's a little cost prohibitive to try all the colors, so I wish there were something cheaper I could try that's similar.   I love the scent, the spf, the moisturization, and the light barely there color I get from lip glow.   Any suggestions?

Make up Mess: Urban Decay Primer Potion!
Hi Ladies,   Firstly I apologize if I post incorrectly or my photos are crooked. This is my first time uploading a photo here.   I am having a problem with my Urban Decay Primer Potion (Original). I purchased it this past December. Previously I was using the same primer (UD) for over 3 years. I don't buy a lot at Sephora because I  don't know what some of the best products are.   I immediately noticed a change in my eye make up when I opened my second tube of UD primer potion. I hate the new packaging! Tons of product comes out of the tube at once, and the primer seems 'wet'.   I am not happy with how my eye shadow looks. Am I doing something wrong? I am by no means an expert in make up application but I definetely noticed a change with the second primer. Perhaps they changed their formula?   Any advice is appreciated. Thank you!

White cast on face
I have tried flash testing from my iPhone camera. Not using the the front face camera. The actual camera from my phone. All the foundations cause a white cast to my face. I've tried MUFE HD foundation , smashbox 15 hour , milani 2 in 1, kat Von d lock it , Mac face & body, Giorgio Armani luminous silk. My mosturizor doesnt have SPF in it. I have tried these foundations with nothing else under or over it to just test the flash back on the foundations. Everything seems to cause a white cast. What am I doing wrong? These foundations shouldn't be causing a white cast.

Fair skin foundation
I have very fair skin & color matched as Sephora's lightest 1Y01. I can't seem to find anything that works for me. I am so frustrated. I wrote a post on here once before and received a few recommendations that gave me hope but alas, my face is the same pain in the butt per usual. Not only is my skin fair, but also red and covered in hyperpigmentation from old acne. I also have a bit of ice pick scarring , large pores, and genetic dark circles. Every foundation I try is either too dark or emphasizes the wrong areas.  -Makeup Forever Mat Velvet + in Alabaster 15 is what I'm currently using but it seems to move/powder a bit? It's the perfect color when I first put it on but then it oxidizes and is too dark! I'm thinking about switching to a primer like Benefit's Porefessional to see if that helps when worn under the foundation but I'm frustrated. I've been using Nars Chantilly which I like & prefer to the Urban Decay naked concealer. I don't know if I should try mixing with a white foundation but I feel like I should be able to find something that works for me if I'm paying so much money otherwise why not just mix through the drugstore? My large pores & ice pick scarring are also especially on the apples of my cheeks/cheeks and nose so they're front and center. I don't know if something like bare minerals matte foundation would work or be too dark. Any suggestions/insight would be greatly appreciated!

The perfect cool tone nude lipstick...? Help !
I'm looking for a new lipstick but I just can't seem to find the right shade now I'm more tanned. I'm an absolute Mac lipstick addict, but I find nearly all of their nude shades are more warm toned on me, rather than cool toned, which suits me much better judging by a few liquid lipsticks I've tried lately, but I'm looking for a lipstick (matte/glossy etc I don't mind the finish) so can I be cheeky and ask for some swatch pictures or links of any recommendations? I'm a medium skin tone and don't want anything too light Hopefully I can get some suggestions here !  Also, what's your favourite nude lipstick?

Armani Luminous Silk and primers
Hello! I've been playing with the Armani Luminous Silk foundation and while I like how natural it looks, I find that I really struggle with longevity with this foundation. I've got dry/dehydrated, sensitive/reactive skin and while this doesn't irritate or cause break-outs, it does wear off very quickly by the end of the day.   I've heard that allegedly this foundation has a primer built in, but I don't think it does anything for longevity. For dry/dehydrated ladies that wear this, do you use a primer with it? If so, which one? If not, do you use anything to beef up the longevity (e.g.: powder, etc.)? Thank you!

Ideas For Replacing Too Faced Secret To No Makeup Palette?
Ok so I finally got through my stash of the Too Faced Secret To No Makeup palettes that I owned and I went to order more but I see they are no longer available.  I love these palettes for traveling so I am now wondering what I can use to replace these?  I adored these palettes.  Any suggestions of a similar palette?  I do prefer the creamy palettes versus powder due to my skin type.   Does anyone know if they are going to bring these back out?    Thanks heaps to everyone in advance for help.

Allergy ideas?
I'm having an extremely odd allergic reaction and I can't get an appointment with a doctor until August, so I'm hoping some of you fab folks have some insight. My issue is primer and only on my lids. I used to use UD Primer Potion and, when they changed the formula, I began having a reaction. I then tried Trish McEvoy and also had a reaction. Both contained silicone (dimethicone in UD, cyclopentasiloxane in Trish McEvoy). I then tried Too Faced Glitter Glue, which does not contain silicone in any form, and had a reaction to that. My fiancé and I scoured the ingredients of the three, and the only ingredient they all have in common is phenoxyethanol.   Anyone ever heard of an allergy to this?? I'm trying now to find a primer that doesn't contain phenoxyethanol, which is possible, but I'm just so tired of trying something, doing my makeup, and 3 hours later having to take it off because my lids are red, swollen, and itchy. Plus, then I can't wear any eye makeup for a week and it's really annoying.

Q. whats a good face primer for dry, tan skin?
Hello everyone! I just need some help finding a good face primer.  I have normal to dry skin and i need a hydrating primer but I also have tan skin with yellow undertones. I've used the Rimmel London Stay Matte primer from the drugstore, its mattifying but it doesn't work well with my dry skin and it makes my skin tone look lighter and it makes my foundation appear lighter.  So I'm in the hunt for a primer that wont lighten my skin tone and make it look white or washed out. Do you guys know of any primer that's hydrating and wont lighten my skin tone or make my skin look washed out/ashy?  Would a primer that's clear or have gel like consistency would work? What products do you recommend? Thank you! Hope you can help me!

Would I be cool, neutral or warm skin tone?
Almost every foundation I've tried the color is either too orange or too light. I have fair skin but it's not fair enough to need the lightest shade. I was using estee lauder double wear in shade 1n2 ecru and out of all the shades it is the one that almost matches but it is still too orange. Now I use Lancome tient idole ultra in shade 140 ivory and dual finish powder in 130 porcelain ivory and even though they are neutral tones they still make me look super orange also. What tone then would I be to get the perfect match foundation where I won't look too white or too orange?
