I have swatches of UD liquid aura compared to Milk holographic supernova. I really wanted to get the Supernova holographic look with a formula that is lighter to wear. I found at first swatch they are similar with Milk having a more pigmented swatch. The UD seemed to far after a couple of hours with the holographic pigment when I tried to strategically apply as a highlight. As a mix-in it did have a pretty lightening effect that was very natural!
Hi Beautiful People, I recently decided to overhaul my makeup collection. I've tossed a lot of products and purchased some new and improved items as well. In depot-ing my favorite shadows, I discovered that the Laura Mercier Gilded Rosegold shadow I purchased long ago was not in a pan. (I figured this out after I already broke the case/shell it was in). l am interested in finding something small enough to fit in my small z palette. So, eyeshadow or single blush size. I don't care what brand (or even price) as long as I can find a replacement. I mostly use this on my eyes in the inner corner or as a highlight. Granted, this shadow is probably several years old and should be tossed, but I can't let it go without a replacement. Let's just say I knew who to turn to in order to find the perfect substitute. Thank you to everyone, J
Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, I have purchased the Too Faced Peach Palette and I have a quinceneara coming up for which I want to do my own make up (I am the guest). My sister has the ABH Modern Renaissance palette which I might borrow depending on what look I will go with. I need some advice from all you experts on the type of brushes I need. I have been watching some YouTube videos and some of the artists have soooo many brushes which gets me lost. Please please help on guiding me to brushes and brands. I have E.L.F. brushes but I heard of Sigma brushes. Thank you in advance. Also, how to people put fake eye lashes by themselves?!
I'm considering investing in a Naked palette for every day use; however, I'm not sure which one would be best for me. I'm blonde with hazel eyes and pale/fair skin. I also wear black glasses daily. Right now I'm using the Elf Prism Palette in Sunset as my daily one, but I don't use the darkest shade much. I'm looking to expand my eyeshadow abilities and colors, and it seems like a Naked one is a good way to do it. Thoughts?
DISCUSSION THREAD FOR NARS ORGASM I bought my first NARS product in 2012/2013, it was the NARS Orgasm blush (ever classic). I remember when I first bought it, and my friends judged me for spending so much money on BLUSH. But I didn't care, I knew it was destiny. It continues to serve me to this day and every time I look at it, I fall in love all over again. Such a rich and beautiful color for so many shades of skin. With the Spring 2017 NARS orgasm roll out, we now are presented with an Orgasm family. Liquid blush, lipstick, etc... it seems that NARS is re-branding its trademark color and re-franchising the color to many other NARS products. I do love it, because the orgasm color is so beautiful in of itself. However, my main concern is that.. has the color changed? Has NARS switched the formula on us? I went into Sephora not too long ago to make a swatch against my skin tone and I must say, it is not the same orgasm that I know and love. I'm not adverse to change, but has anyone else noticed it or am I going crazy? I just feel like the new color is more a pop-pink, rather than a soft, natural blush you get when you, uh, ...climax. Open to any comments or arguments!
Hey! I find that mixing the Becca backlight priming filter with my foundation helps it blend in for a more skin-like appearance (with a glow). But does anyone have other recommendations for primers that mix well with their foundations? I don't mean applied separately but mixed as a foundation cocktail!
My usual primer hasn't been working very well lately so I tried a sample of the NARS and love it! It seems to dry down my eyelids a bit so I was wondering if anyone has used this long term and noticed any skin issues? I wouldn't want to dry out my skin long term to prevent shadow creasing in the short term. Thanks!
I need recommendations for a concealer. I am 54 with combination skin and some purple on the inside of the under eyes, but no bags. I have fine wrinkles under my eyes and at the corners. No deep creases or dryness (pretty oily this time of year). Products i I have used this past year (only one is a concealer- so maybe that is part of my problem): Ole Henriksen Perfect Truth CC Eye Cream - made my eyes itch. Still have half a tube left. Only Ole Henrickson product that has caused me issues. Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Concealer - Great coverage, but too drying. Still using though. It would be great if I was 21 or even 31. YSL Touché Eclait Radiance Perfectimg Pen - Was my favorite even though it technically isn't a "concealer". I ran out. Didn't cover my purple as much as I would have liked, but it didn't settle into my fine lines and it did make my eyes look more awake. I pretty much went to this instead of the Kat Von D until I ran out. Help! TIA!
Hey everyone! Ever since I saw this makeup posted on Instagram, I fell in love. Olivia Munn looks BEAUTIFUL! I'm hoping someone could suggest some products to recreate this- mostly the lipstick and blush though. And maybe the eyes as well. I'm sad and slightly annoyed that the artist is ignoring everyones pleas about the makeup and what he used on her. Seriously, so many people have asked but he hasn't responded, yet has continued to post new looks every other artist I know posts the products along with the look. Anyways, thanks ahead of time everyone PS sorry accidentally posted in Acne!
I am a HUGE fan of the Fresh Rose Lip treatment. I love the sheer color it has and it's so moisturizing! And I just came across the No Lipstick Lipstick from Perricone MD, so I'm very very tempted to buy it. I have a TON of lip products, but I find myself always in the market for an everyday go to lip product. I need something that is not really heavy on the lips like lipstick. I do have Bite Beauty's Chai lipstick and it's so gorgeous but I think it's too much for a simple look. Do you guys have an everyday lip product that you go to for a simple lip?
Hi, I am looking for a foundation for sensitive dry skin. It can be a tinted moisturizer or bb/cc cream as well. I am not really a person who wear makeup everyday. I sometimes wear it and sometimes no. I would be prefer to those product that won't get expired very soon.I personally prefer those kind of foundation that can applied by beauty sponge, because I feel if I use a brush or finger the product just sits on my face and looks like I am wearing a mask. As to my face, I used to have a lot acne, and now they are gone. I don't get break out that easily but I don't want those foundation that brings a lot of damage to my face. My cheeks are very dry and my t-zone is like a normal skin. That means that I still get oily on my t-zone, but it's not as oily as oily skin. I have some pores around my nose, but I think I could fix that by using some silicon based primer. Thanks very much for your help. I really appreciate that.
Hi, I'm thinking of trying a new foundation but I'm stuck between three options. I have oily skin and sometimes breakout though this has calmed down in recent years. I currently use MakeupForever Mat Velvet + foundation and I generally love it but sometimes I've noticed that after wearing it for prolonged amounts of time(which I don't do often) my t-zone can look oily. I don't know if I should stick with this as it does what I need it to most of the time or switch to another foundation. The other foundations I was considering were Clinique Superbalanced Makeup Kat Von D Lock-It powder foundation. Has anyone used either of these? Are there noticeable differences between a powder and liquid finish foundation?
Sometimes it feels like we love so many products it's impossible to identify our all-time favorites. With the endless makeup obsessions on BeautyTalk I thought it would be fun to give some love to the products we always go back to. I know it's hard to narrow down your pretties to a few favorites but I think it will be a fun exercise!
Here's the deal! I listed 7 main categories to fill in. Please try to stick to your Sephora favorites (if possible) and list only one product per category.
Here we go! Let's see your top...
4. Eyeshadow (single or palette):
6. Blush: 7. Highlighter:
Can't wait to see your favorites and hopefully discover some new products to try!
