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?

Try an eyeshadow that is in a stick format, that has a wet feel and then dries down.  Bobbi Brown and Marc Jacobs both have one.  They don't run. see post
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.

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?

Mascara for Wimpy Lashes.
Hello. I have wimpy lashes. They are straight and if a mascara is too heavy they lose their curl. I have tried everything from drugstore to high end. I enjoyed the Better Than Sex mascara but it ended up flaking into my eyes. Also, I enjoyed  Givenchy   Phenomen'Eyes Mascara because it held a curl and separated my lashes. However, it smudged and was somewhat difficult to put on. In short, I am looking for a mascara that holds a curl, volumizes, and separates. Thank you.

EVE LOM oil free radiance foundation
Hi guys, I recently purchased the Eve Lom oil free radiance foundation. I love the color, staying power and the way it makes my skin feel but I have the hardest time applying it. It's on the thicker side and doesn't spread that well. I try to work in smaller sections and apply thinly but I find it looks weird and patchy in certain parts of my face.   Every once in a while I manage to apply it perfectly and it looks great but I haven't been able to figure out what the difference is. I use the hourglass primer and always do it after proper skincare. I also find that putting on powder afterwards sometimes sets it nicely and other times creates almost a weird marbled pattern on my phase.   Anyone here with this foundation and tips on applying? I've tried brush, beauty blender, fingers, you name it. Thoughts?

BeccaXJaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Palette
I am starting this discussion because after writing a 3 star review of the new Champagne highlighter and blush palette by Jaclyn Hill and Becca, my review was deleted. I've been going through all of the reviews and it seems like Sephora is deleting any reviews that are less than 4 stars. And I don't mean the negative ones that people were posting even before the palette had been shipped. I mean ones AFTER the palette shipped and people had actually started to receive them. I just gave my honest opinion of the palette (no unnecessary negativity or "hating") and it was deleted. That is so shady to me. Sephora is clearly trying to keep all of the "OMG THIS IS AMAZING!" reviews to boost sales on the official release date. I thought the point of the review section was to give your honest opinion of a product, good or bad. Am I wrong? And I was a little wary to post this because I was afraid Jaclyn's minions would come after me and say I was just being a hater. But I'm not. I love Jaclyn and Champagne Pop is one of my favorite highlighters. I've been subscribed to her YouTube channel for years and I watch her videos on a regular basis. I just wanted to give my honest opinion of the palette.      *UPDATE*   I think it's important to continue to be completely honest here so I wanted to give an update. I just checked the reviews again and my original 3 star review magically reappeared. Maybe someone saw this post and put it back up? I still stand by what I said about it being deleted though. I know what I saw and my review was definitely gone. I am very familiar with the Sephora website so I really don't feel like this was an error on my part. I suppose it could have just been some technical glitch but it still seems fishy to me considering other people have said they've experienced having negative reviews deleted as well.      *ANOTHER UPDATE*   Welp, my review is gone again. I see some new reviews from other users that are between 2 and 3 stars so I'm interested to see if those will disappear as well.
