Graftobian and Kryolan
Has anyone tried Graftobian or Kryolan cream foundations? I saw a YouTuber use a Kryolan Palette for contouring and highlighting and now I want one   There's a ton of different Kryolan ones. I was drawn to these in particular:      Or should i just save money and get a coastal scents concealer palette?

It depends on what you're using it for.  I know Kryolan well and it's great stuff, but you have to bear in mind that it's basically stage makeup.  So, it's fine if you'r... see post

Spot cleaning vs Deep cleaning?
I've noticed a few threads on how to clean brush and whatnot, and in them, deep cleaning and spot cleaning is mentioned. Sooooo can anyone explain the difference? Isn't cleaning a brush cleaning it?

Help me pick a new lipcolor...
I am turning to you, my BT community, in all of your wisdom. I generally wear neutral/nude/natural lip colors. I think my lips look thin and harsh with dark colors, but I would like to try more of a bright color. I see so many photos posted of everyone, and the brighter colors look so nice on everyone, no matter what shape their lips  or face.  "berry blushed" from Clinique and "watermelon" Burt's Bees are about as colorful as I have right now. Otherwise, I have Dolly Buxom and Blossom by Mally...nice colors, but no pizzazz. Here are my stats and preferences: Fair skin with pink undertones, 49 with nice skin, average lips but they turn down on the corners a bit.   I prefer a more sheer coverage with shimmer. Glosses preferred, but if a lipstick is more moisturizing, that will work too.  Something coral, berry or pinks that aren't dark or fuschia-bright  but are pretty and great for Spring and Summer?  Thanks in advance!

Spot cleaning brushes suggestions
I'm pretty rushed in the morning, so sometimes I don't clean my eyeliner or cream blush brush right afterward, and of course it dries and becomes hard and difficult to clean when I get home.   So I'm looking to change this habit.    What is the best and fastest way to spot clean your eyeliner brush or other brushes that come into contact with liquid/cream products? I'd like it to be thorough enough that I can use the brush for a few days before doing a deep cleaning, abut not super time consuming.

Which Palette?
So I wanted to pick up a new palette but I don't know which one or ones to get.  I have the Naked palettes, Smoked, and Vice by Urban Decay.  But I'd like to branch out and try a different brand.  I've only read reviews on these palettes and I do want to swatch them, but I don't want to be tempted by all 4.  Is there any that are better than the others? Are they pigmented?  Good variety?  Or are they too closely related to my palettes?  Any help is appreciated!   http://www.sephora.com/monarch-eyeshadow-palette-P 385530?icid2=Kat_Von_D_WhatsNew_Carousel_P385530_l ...   http://www.sephora.com/chrysalis-eyeshadow-palette -P385529?icid2=Kat_Von_D_WhatsNew_Carousel_P385529 ...   http://www.sephora.com/the-chocolate-bar-eye-palet te-P384402?icid2=Too_Faced_Editors_Picks _P384402_link   http://www.sephora.com/the-return-of-sexy-eye-shad ow-palette-P375171?skuId=1442201

love hate relationship with OCC Liptars
Hi ladies, I'm wondering if anyone else has the same problem as I do with the liptars? They're so pigmented, long lasting, and the colors are amazing , but it's so messy! It's so hard to put on sometimes and you really have to be patient in my opinion. It's also really drying so I'm trying to decide if it's worth the hassle.  xoxo, Kelly

can someone look at my makeup routine please
So I am trying to learn how to highlight and contour. I have some questions gathered from the tutorials and videos I've read and watched.   1-what is the difference between a bronzer and a contour? 2- if a product says highlighter then can you use it on all the parts of your face that need highlighting?   So I have found Maybeline BB creams and they work really well for me in the place of a foundation, primer.   I am going to upload pics of everything I have..     I have : -Maybeline BB cream I have 2: medium deep (makes me look tanned), medium ( is one shade too light).     -Maybeline liquid concealer   that is light for me and I'm wondering if I can use this as a highlighter in all the parts of my face that need highlighting?   -Cover Girl Tru Blend Concealer fix stick   and it's lighter than my skin tone.   -L'oreal Luminizer highlighter pen- this goes on kind of shimmery and white so I think it would look grey on my face like on my cheeks and chin and stuff   -benefit watts up highlighter ( the one that came in sephora birthday gifts)   -Maybeline Fix Me Foundation Stick- darker than my skin tone  -Maybeline Fix me Foundation Powder- one is much darker than my skin, and one is a bit lighter for my skin     Wow I had no idea I had so many products. It's silly because I buy drugstore since it's cheaper but I guess for the amount I spent on this I could have just had an artist at Sephora pick exactly what was perfect for me :$ So I know I have enough products and wondering which to use. I already know where the highlights and contours are supposed to be placed   Just wondering if I should put the BB cream all over my face first as a base color and then add the contour and highlights?   I am not sure if I should just put the contour and highlights on my face where they belong and then blend in, without a base of color first?   Is there a way to put this makeup on without making it look like there is a lot of makeup on ? I'm wondering if I can get away with just using dark and light BB creams from Maybeline for everything?   Sorry for such a long post and thanks in advance   Also I have these brushes and I use the second one from the right for my contour. Is that right?

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette without Primer
Has anybody contacted Hourglass and/or received a response about the missing mini primer? When I ordered my palette, it was included in the description on their website. I checked when I heard rumors it was missing in packages and it looks like it was removed from the description at some point (after many orders were placed). I think Sephora removed that part before it went live so at least they were upfront about what we're getting in the mail.  That mini-primer pushed me over the edge and got me to order the kit because it added value to $45 worth of product for $58 (plus value for the different shades available I guess). Plus, I really like my primer and would have liked a travel size for when I visit my family this weekend.

Lancome or MUFE concealer
I am going to Hawaii in a little bit and since I will definitely be going to the beach, I am trying to decide on a waterproof concealer to get. I am currently deciding between:    LANCÔME EFFACERNES Waterproof Protective Undereye Concealer   or   MAKE UP FOR EVER Full Cover Concealer   I would use it to cover redness, acne/acne scars, and dark circles.

Face, neck, and chest are different colors...how to match?
Hi all! Sorry I haven't been around lately. Life got in the way. Anyway.   Summer is coming up, and the inevitable wearing of fewer clothing items, which means chest will be showing.   My problem is this: My face is pink, my neck is a darker yellow, and my chest matches my face (pinker and lighter). I've heard that you'd want to match summer foundation to your chest, so there isn't an obvious color difference. Thing is, there's a color difference even if my foundation matches my chest. My neck won't cooperate at all, so I have a foundation line at my jaw.   tl;dr If a foundation matches my face and chest, it won't match my neck.   I'm not sure what to do in this situation, so any advice would be appreciated.

Full Coverage Foundation
I have severe acne and scarring, which leaves almost "craters'' when I put on foundation. I've always used BareMinerals "Fairly Light" in Matte but I found that it doesn't provide the full coverage I need and comes off very easily.

I've tried nearly every Neutrogena wipe out there (as well as Olay, etc.) and all of them seem to have perfumes in them.  It's not a huge problem for me as my skin doesn't break out because of this, but I just personally would prefer to not have my skin smell like pink buttfruit every time I try and clean my face.
