Bare Minerals Mineral Veil
Hey all....does anyone have a product recommendation that is like Mineral Veil (gives healthy "glow", not sparkle and shine) that DOES NOT contain bismuth oxychloride? Loved the look of Veil, but I cannot tolerate bismuth. Thanks in advance.

Is Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation changing?
I went to Sephora today to grab a replacement Silk Creme foundation, and there were two different looking tubes mixed on the display. There were a few colors only available in the original looking tube, and a few with a newer looking design. My color was only there in the new tube, so I decided to get it. The only difference I can see is that this is called Oil Free Photo Edition, and the color is a little warmer and more yellow than my standard Cream Ivory shade. On the box, this one says it is meant for normal to oily skin types...sounds different to me? Has anyone seen this too? Thoughts?

Best eyeliner for waterline?
Hi! I love the look of eyeliner in my waterline, but I have really watery eyes, so most won't stay. For most of them, they don't even last an hour. I've tried Makeup Forever Aqua eyes in pencil form, which lasted a couple hours but that's been the longest. I've also tried Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner, but that was a dissapointment. I had a castmember recommend Stila, but I wanted to ask first. Anyone have any recommendations?

Cool toned green eyeliner
So I've gotten a little bit of an obsession started with trying to find the perfect green eyeliner - not just any green, it has to be cool toned, not gold-green, not khaki-green, not grass-green, not even touching something lime green. While pastel greens might technically count as cool toned, they remind me of some pictures I've seen from the 80's too much to be considered for this particular color hunt. Teal is an option as long as it's more green than blue while still being cool toned.   I've tried doing some preliminary research on my own and keep getting results for 1.) brand product pages, 2.) not cool toned greens, 3.) best colors for green eyes,and  4.) You must have entered the search terms incorrectly, you meant you want to find purple plum and copper colored products right? Because that's what we're going to show you regardless!   Also, just my luck, cool toned greens are the ones that have not been specifically addressed/reviewed/swatched/found dupes for on temptalia. So here I am, asking my fellow BTers for their help with finding the very specifically cool toned greens that can still be found (no LE shades from 2011!) without resorting to the price gouging mega-retailer sites!

asian eyelashes
I'm Korean, so my eyelashes are very thin and they point straight down. I curl my them before I apply mascara but they droop down unless the mascara is waterproof. I've been wanting either the Benefit They're Real or the Too Faced Better Than Sex but I realized that there wasn't a waterproof one available. Does anyone know if they hold a curl like waterproof mascara does?

No luck finding a foundation that matches my pale skin tone! Please help!
Hey guys, I hope you can help me out with this! The scenario: I have extremely extremely pale skin. I have tried Sephora's Aerosol Foundation in Cream, Make Up for Ever Velvet Matte in Alabaster, Tarte's Amazonian Clay Foundation in Fair-Light Honey and Josie Maran's Powder Compact in 01- Fair/Light but everything has been too dark for me and it's getting quite frustrating to not have found a perfect match yet! I have even tested out some of suggestions listed under the ColourIQ, and low and behold, they are still too dark and/or orangey For all those with a similar issue, what foundation do you guys use and why?

In the market for a new mascara
I have been using UD's Perversion. I loved it for awhile. But it seems like it is not consistent. My lashes seem awesome one day but meh the next. And it has some clumpy days too. Those days seem to be increasing.  I'd like to buy something new. I'm not sure what direction to go in. I'm leaning towards the Diorshow. But even then I'm not sure which one I want.  Any recommendations? Thanks!!

I currently have the Mac mineralized foundation and a prep and prime pen for highlighting. I find that my makeup does not last for me as it is mineralized and it wipes off my face very easily. Should I switch to maybe a foundation that isnt mineralized? However, I do like the fact that it is less harmfull on my skin.

Asian female seeking perfect powder
 I am: low maintenance, quite busy, and looking for the perfect match. No luck with makeup counter matchmakers, who insisted the had found the one for me, only to discover in natural light that they were far too pink or neutral for my yellow-toned skin. You are: easy to apply, oil free and non-irritating w spf. and although size doesn't matter(much), longish lasting most definitely does. Since my makeup regimen is composed entirely of powder+mascara, it's important that you're 'the one'.  Any advice on who to consult, where to go or what to buy would be fabulous since (despite the Clinique ladyinsisting that "all Asian girls want to look more white!") I haven't given up hope you're out there

A Good Undereye Setting Powder Rec?
Hello everyone! Hope everyone's having a gorgeous day!   I need some good recommendations for an undereye setting powder and maybe a new concealer recommendation while I'm at it. My major concern is having the concealer look natural and having it not settle into fine lines. Here's some info about me:   -I'm a 2y09 with the IQ system here (so I'm kind of a coppery/tanned tone irl) -I have dry/normal skin with no blemishes anywhere besides the eye -Genetic dark circles that are a ***** to cover -I have seasonal allergies (Spring/Fall mostly) -Right now I use MUFE HD Concealer in 12 -I use LM Tinted Moisturizer in Tawny   I heard a lot of people recommend the Anastasia contour palette but I don't want to buy a whole palette if I'm going to use one color, you know? But I also have to do what I have to do so if it's highly recommended I'll bite the bullet.   Thank you for your help!
