Best foundation for me for my wedding day?
I am getting married in april and want a good quality foundation to wear that will last all day and will still look good in pictures. I want a foundation that is NOT a powder. I tend to have somewhat oily skin and have blemishes that I need covered. I also have somewhat sensitive skin. I also need it to be somewhat reasonably priced. I cannot spend more than $45 on it. I would LOVE it if you could give me multiple examples. Please help!

I agree. Definitely do some trial runs with it because it is super easy to overuse this foundation and have it end up looking caked on. see post

Not sure if this is allowed? But I'm going to give it a shot and hope it doesn't get closed *covers eyes*   What's on everyone's wish list for this sale? The sale started yesterday for card holders and will be available starting July 18!   I'm having a hard time in finding anything I like on the previews I've seen so far!   But I really want this!

NYC Sunny is more orange/peach than Benefit Hoola. Hoola is better for contouring than Sunny. Hoola is a matte taupey brown color. see post

Need help choosing a liquid eyeliner!
So I have been experimenting with liquid eyeliners for a little bit and have been trying some that really haven't been working out for me lately. I first tried Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner and it was a deep dark black and it went on very nice and glossy (which I like) but the felt tip began to come off in little balls and whenever going over the line it would remove the liner . I have been also using the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner and that is a brush tip which I have found is better than the Stila at application but again has been taking away the liner if you are to go over it a second time. I'm looking for a pen type eyeliner which a semi-glossy finish that doesn't wear off or take away the line when going over it and is good for cateye/winged eyeliner. Has anyone tried the Alexa Chung Eye do Liquid Eyeliner, I heard that was good but I'm not entirely sure.

Eyebrows
I have one eyebrow blonde like really blonde and I have the only one kind of blackish brownish I can't help it I was born this way I know weird lol!. I refuse to die it just because you know how us girls are once we do something permanent we regret it later. My problem is that everytime i try to match the blonde one with the blackish brown one they still never look the same color i try the color brunette and they still do not look the same with filling them in. So if someone can please help I'd appreciate it.

Does anyone else dislike the TF Chocolate Bar palette?
I feel like this is a palette that is an all-around favorite for a lot of people (other than a few people that I've seen who complain about the smell). I regret buying it a lot, though. I'm honestly not sure what it is about it, but I can't seem to get it to work for me no matter what I do. The shadows are pretty pigmented, though some of them are useless to me because they're essentially just different shades of slightly sheer white. I just can't seem to make any decent looks with it. Anyone else finding it less than awesome, or have any suggestions for looks?

Eyebrow Products Running Out Quickly?
I was wondering what product I should try next because I've used 2 eyebrow pencils:  the anastasia brow wiz which lasted about 3 months for me but it started giving me dry spots on my eyebrows? i thought that wasn't a long period of time especially considering the price so i ended up purchasing the Nars brow perfector. I like the formula better but i've only used it for about a month and it looks like i only have a week to two weeks of product left. I thought it would last longer cause it has more than double the product as the anastasia brow wiz?  I was wondering what product I should use next. I'm thinking about the anastasia dipbrow but that seems a bit complicated as i've only used pencils so far.

Too Faced Melted Berry
Does anyone have this? I just bought it from TF's website. But the color of the product itself is absolutely nothing like berry. It was actually closer to melted ruby than it would be a berry. It was also bright, which is unusual for a berry toned color.   So I was wondering if it's like this for everyone, or I just got a weird batch.

Eyelashes / Mascara Longer on Right Eye and Shorter on Left
Hi BT Ladies,     I just tried the Loreal Voluminous Butterfly mascara this morning, and did my right eye first. To my delight it gave me super long, separated lashes with amazing curl. I was beyond ecstatic. My go-to mascara was MUFE Smoky Extravagant, but this worked even better than MUFE, and is a lot cheaper...so I was sooo happy...   Then I did my left eye.    I have no idea what happened? The left eye lashes turned out extremely wimpy, short, and clumpy, with no curl, and was just overall a horrible mess. It looked like my left and right eyelashes belonged on two different people. They just did not match what-so-ever.   I've had this happen with other mascaras, where my left eyelashes turn out not as nice as the right, but never such an extreme difference as today with the Loreal Butterfly mascara.    So a few questions for you lovely ladies:    1. Have you had experiences where you lashes were uneven either with or without mascara? (in terms of length, volume, curl, etc). 2. What mascaras tend to give more uneven results / what was the shape of the brush? (I find that the uneven lashes issue happens the most with asymmetrical brushes) 3. What do you think is the cause of this?  4. Any tips or tricks on how to make your lashes look even on both sides?    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!    (FYI, I'm right handed. Also, when I do my left eyelashes, I still use my right hand, but twist my wrist the other way, so that the tip of the mascara wand is facing towards the inner corner of my left eye).

Product Help Please!
I'm looking for a product to replace my Marc Jacobs Close-Up (302) Lightshow Luminizing Powder. I bought one near the end of last year and have been trying so hard to make it last but I'd rather just find something else to use when this is over that I can always find. Multiple products that are similar in each shade would be fine, but I prefer palettes. Or if you have any suggestions for different colour highlighters, etc! I have fair skin, hazel eyes and dark brown hair. Hope someone can help me, thanks!

Mark Jacobs kiss pops.... Thoughts?
I got the kiss pop I ordered in the mail today... Definitely not what I was expecting.    On first looks, the packaging is super cute and feels very high quality.    I ordered crush, which was described as a tangerine red, and all I'm seeing is tangerine. I'm very pale, and this comes out as a true orange on me in natural light. But mostly, this is far from moisturizing, in my opinion. It nearly crumbled when I applied it, and already my lips feel dry. I'll wear it around the apartment tonight, but I'm not so sure this will be staying.    what are everyone else's thoughts on these?

Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Palette
So Anastasia just released a new eyeshadow palette in collaboration with an amazing MUA/beauty blogger by the name of Amra Olevic aka "Amrezy" on Instagram. This collaboration took 8 months to create and is Anastasia's very first official partnership with a MUA. It is $29 dollars for 10 shades and this palette can only be purchased at the ABH website and in Ulta stores starting Monday. Some Ulta stores have it already. I am planning on purchasing it so if anyone wants swatches just let me know.

Guerlain Meteorite + talc
So tomorrow, I was going to buy Lingerie de Peau & try the Meteorite in stores to see if I like them enough to buy them. BUT, I think I took for granted that because this is such a high end product, it did not contain talc. But it does! I am shocked. I'm not paying 60+$ for some pretty pearls made of talc.    Is this just me or what? I never had problem with talk, and I wouldn't mind it too much if it was a 25$ powder, but for the price I'm paying, it better be talc free. Is is just me or if sometimes, luxury brands are a little behind in terms of ingredients and all?   What are your thoughts?

Do you have trouble throwing away make-up?
I keep purchasing new things that catch my attention (or that I've convinced myself I need), but I simply can't get through all of the products I own. I don't have an issue tossing old mascara and liquid liners, but I absolutely hate the thought of tossing any other product before I've used every last bit of it.  I've realized that it's impossible for me to use everything up unless I stop buying make-up altogether.   What unused / unfinished products do you have trouble parting with?  And what do you do about it?  How do you use it up so you can move onto something new and exciting?
