Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..
I already have the Filmstar bronze & glow palette but looking into some of her other products.   Does anyone have any experiences they would like to share esp with her Light Wonder Foundation, her blush and the Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder? I'm interested in getting these three things but still on the fence about taking the plunge!    Please let me know, many BTers opinions have helped me out on products before Thanks in advance!

What are the best sweat proof products?
It gets super hot and humid where I live and I'm out side a lot for 8+ hours. So i'm looking for a good primer, foundation and concealer. I currently use Estee Lauder double wear and I like it for the most part because it is full coverage and its so full coverage I dont even need a concealer with it and I find its the only foundation so far that has lasted the longest without sweating off. But the negative side is that it makes my skin patchy/cakey especially between my eyebrows and sides of my nose since I have kinda dry skin. So basically i'm looking for a long lasting that lasts at least 8+ hours or more in a  sweat proof primer, foundation and concealer for dry skin.

I recently discovered that my skin is incredibly reactive and many ingredients cause breakouts. I want to sell the makeup I can no longer wear.

Help! Thin, straight eyelashes won't hold a curl.
I'm going crazy! I swear, no matter what mascara I use or eyelash curler, my eyelashes refuse to hold a curl. I've noticed that this has been happening for the past year. They use to hold a curl and look how I wanted them too, but not anymore. I've used heat on my curler, tried a few different curlers AND used waterproof mascara and they still refuse to stay curled for more than 5 seconds. My eyelashes now look straight and always clump together whenever I wiggle the mascara wand. I have even tried applying fake eyelashes a few times but I'm awful at it.   Currently,  I use a tweezerman & cover girl eyelash curler as well as the waterproof Maybelline Full 'N Soft mascara.

Eyeliner help
Hi! So it's my first time posting here and I'm looking for an eyeliner I can use on my waterline and also lower lash line. I'm new to eyeliner but have really been loving looks with a pop of color on the waterline and also lower lash line. I love make up forever so I thought about trying their new Aqua xl liners but I have seen some good reviews for the urban decay 24/7, Marc highliner, and the nars larger than life as well. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Foundation won't stick to nose
Here's the issue: When I'm putting on my makeup in the morning, my foundation never seems to want to stick to my nose. It will be blotchy and is NEVER as smooth as the rest of my makeup. I sweat from my nose...wondering if that is the problem. But I try to put it on when I'm cool, and it still never seems to help.    Here's my makeup routine: I use Marc Jacobs coconut primer, then the concentrated foundation. I brush it all on with the Pro Airbrush #55. Then, I use the E.L.F. contouring brush to put a little bit of Bare Minerals bronzer on my cheeks. I use a Bare Minerals kabuki brush to put Cover FX Illuminator on the bridge of my nose, the top of my cheek bones, my forehead and chin...and that's about when my nose makeup starts getting blotchy. Then I go over it with the Marc Jacobs Perfection Powder (using a foundation brush I purchased at ULTA) and brush and brush my nose to try to smooth it out. I have also tried using a beauty blender, but that just seems to rub the makeup off...   I have dry skin, but sometimes my nose can get oily. Could that be the issue?? PLEASE HELP. This is killing me inside. ;'(
