Long-lasting Wedding Day Lip?
Hi all. I am looking for recommendations for a liquid lipstick for my wedding day that is long-wearing and looks good with my fair skin, brown hair with blonde highlights, and brown eyes. My lips have very little natural color, just have a slight pink tint.  I am looking for maybe a pinky-nude, not something too orange or brown. I've heard Kat Von D liquid lipsticks are very long-wearing but all of the colors seem a little wild.   Pinky-Nude lip: My natural Lip color (My hair is a little darker now):

Josie Maran Match Argan Maker Serum
Hi I just tried to order Jose Maran Match Maker Serum and it is saying "not available in the United States" I am SOOO sad. This is the only foundation I wear. Will it be available again soon? Is there a foundation that is comparable? I try to stay as close to organic in my world as possible. Is there another natural foundation? Thank you for your help!

Foundation for dry patchy skin?
So my skin is an issue I am slowly but surely trying to figure out. I know about exfoliating, moisturizing, face oils and serums.. I even use UD chill setting spray instead of powder.. But we won't get into that right now!   I am looking for a foundation for dry skin that doesn't accentuate dry patches and is a medium buildable coverage.   I have tried Makeup forever HD invisible cover, Marc Jacobs genius gel, and IT cosmetics your skin but better and nothing is working. IT cosmetics is the best so far but it makes my skin feel SO greasy..   Any suggestions on your luck with hydrating foundations?

Q. Which color should I use to counteract dark patches?
Okay my face overall is pretty light/pale in color, but uh.. years of sun damage on my lower face has made my mouth area slightly darker. But my neck is pale so it looks super weird if I try to match the rest of my face to the color of my chin/mouth area. But if I wear a lighter foundation to match my neck and other areas on my face, the chin/mouth area looks really ashy and grey.    I thought maybe color correcting can help me, to wear them underneath my foundation. But I have no idea which color works for brightening a big area of dark patches? The color isn't blue/purple/yellow anything, although I guess it falls under the category of "sallowness", but I've tried lavender colors before and it just makes the area look even more ashy and unattractive. Any ideas? Would orange work? I thought orange was for the green/blue like, for undereyes and such.

SOS - My Watery-Eye dilemma!!
So, I've never used this before but I was wondering if anyone can relate or has advice! Since the dawn of time (me experimenting with make up at age 11) I have struggled with finding an eyeliner or mascara that is long lasting.  My eyes are watery I guess and spend most of my day wiping of make up from underneath my eyes. I've tried primers, pencil liners, liquid liners, gel liners, felt-tip pen liners. Water proof mascara, high end mascara, regular mascara. I have yet to find a product that stays on my eyes.  Today I ordered the stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner, Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara and an Urban Decay Primer potion.  I'm hoping these products will work well!  Does anyone have any staple products they use that are long lasting?

Tarte Aqualillies shadow dupes?
Does anyone remember this palette? It is my favorite palette of all time and has been my white whale (Moby D!ck) since it was discontinued (darn LE)! This palette was perfection, but 3 shadows stole my heart, namely hammock (coffee brown that blends like a dream), bikini (duo chrome peachy tan is the best way I can describe it but doesn't do it justice and my absolute favorite shade in this palette) and sun deck (a light tan). This palette was an impulse purchase in 2013 and since it is no longer available I ration my usage of it. I have hoped Tarte would release these colors again under a different name in another palette but haven't found that to be the case. Can anyone suggest dupes of these shadows (especially hammock and bikini) by any brand in singles or a palette?

Makeup Primer
Hey gang,   I've been using Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder, and while I like it, I don't LOVE it. I also have an issue with how cheaply made the compact and applicator are so now that I'm out again, I thought I'd switch. Any recommendations on another primer? I'd prefer a powder, but I'm not married to it. My skin is really dry so I always have to take that into account too.    Thanks!

Pigmented Setting Powder vs Translucent
I have been seeing tons of makeup artists using pressed powder foundations to set their liquid foundations.  Besides adding a little bit of more coverage, why do they do this?  I have always used the Laura Mercier translucent setting powder to set my Chanel Perfection Lumiere foundation.  Both help my oily skin stay matte all day long.  I am very curious to try a good pressed setting powder that is not translucent, any suggestions?

Looking for a new full coverage foundation...
I am currently shopping around and looking for suggestions for another full coverage (obviously will settle on medium to buildable full) pressed powder foundation to set my makeup.  Currently I'm using both Kat Von D Lock It and Too Faced Cocoa Powder Foundation however I don't like that sometimes KVD will oxidize and sometimes the Too Faced doesn't last all day.  I've tried Tarte's Amazonian Clay, Clinique's Sheer Powder, Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk, and NARS All Day Luminous.  I have combination skin but don't have an issue with oil breaking through my makeup.  I've been to three Sephora's and they just recommend ones I've already tried and at one store they told me they were too busy to get me a sample of one I wanted, oh well.  I do have a love/hate relationship with Benefit and MUFE but am willing to try   If it makes any difference the makeup that would be set with the powder is NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, Bobbi Brown skin corrector, MAC Pro Long wear concealer, Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation, YSL highlighter, and ABH contour

how do I prevent Kat Von D tattoo eyeliner from transferring to my lid?
The first few times I used this eyeliner (with and without primer, with and without shadow) it went on perfectly. One swipe, full coverage and no transferring to my lid. After about 5 days it started transferring to my lids after 20 minutes of being on. In the past 2 days, even after storing tip down and shaking, it's going on lightly so i've had to put on more than one coat. The transferring was even worse! I'm not sweating - just driving to work. Is this usual or does it sound defective? Thank you for your thoughts!

Does Urban Decay have a matte dark brown single eyeshadow similar to the color "Vengeance" from the "Pulp Fiction" palette?
I bought one of their 4-pan "build your own" palettes and I'm trying to create a palette for daily use.   I looked through Sephora and UD site and they don't seem to have a matte dark brown shade. It's kind of surprising that they don't have this color. =O   I have hit the pan in my "Pulp Fiction" palette. This palette is basically my holy grail for the "brown/natural" eye look.   I bought "Secret Service" as the medium brown lid color and I'm looking for a matte dark brown (an exact match or something similar to the color "Vengeance") to use as a crease color. I don't want to use black because that is too dark for daytime/daily use. They seem to have a whole lot of midtone browns in their current lineup, but a lack of dark browns.   Did I overlook something or does UD really not have this color?
