Hey everyone! Deciding wether to splurge on Vice 3 (which I really do love all of the colors) or a custom Inglot palette. I'd heard Vice 3 wasn't as good but I'd really like to hear what everyone here thinks. Thanks
It doesn't seem to matter makeup I wear... I ALWAYS show up stark white in flash photos - and yes, I've tried taking them at all different distances. I'm kinda fair as it is. Light skin with really warm undertones. I'm not sure if its a blush I'm using, a bronzer, a setting powder? I usually use Nars Sheer Glow or Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, MAC MSF Natural, whichever bronzer I feel like using (either the Anastasia contour kit or NYC sunny bronzer), and a Nars blush. I also always use Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. Any suggestions on what could be causing me to look like a corpse in photos/product recommendations to solve my issue?
Hey ladies and gents! I'm always on the hunt for new brands to explore. I love supporting smaller companies that are female and/or minority owned. (the ones you share don't have to be) What are your favorite indie brands? Makeup, beauty, body care, clothes etc? I've loved oyin handmade for YEARS since they started in 1999/2000 or so. They have really grown and are now available in target stores in some areas. I also love bake shop butters (the owner is so sweet) she just got married so her shop is closed for now, but her body butters are WONDERFUL and smell so good. Toni Daley makes some AMAZING jewelry! I have some of her earrings and any time I wear them someone always asks me where I got them. Rachel Stewart also make some incredible pins and earrings.
Which foundations have you guys liked for sensitive skin. Sephora discontinued my favorite Lorac foundation, it was heaven sent for my sensitive and acne prone skin. I am not using Hourglass foundation with a brush. In store they matched my skin but now the secretary at work said it looked too orange on my skin! How embarrassing...so the search begins anew, Any other suggestions? I need a good pale-with yellow undertone similar to Lorac with medium to full coverage for acne prone skin? And go! Thanks
So, I'm really liking rosy gold/brown right now and have been eyeing that palette ever since it came out. But everyone seemed to have issues with the quality, especially with Dust which I thought was gorgeous. I keep hoping that it was just an issue with the first palettes released, but I don't live close enough to a Sephora to play with a more recently created palette. Does anyone know if the quality increased?

We swatched Urban Decay's Naked On The Run Palette to see how the colors looked on different skin tones. What do you think?
Do you have a swatch of this palette? Post a pic in the thread below!
Naked On The Run will be available online December 1st and in stores December 4th!
what are your thoughts? sometimes i feel like my foundation is too heavy (i know i could use a lighter coverage, but i always feel like those don't do anything) so i was wondering what people think about wearing concealer without foundation and if anyone has any tips?
I'm totally obsessed with lipstick right now. I'm normally a gloss kind of girl, but I bought the Bite lip set and UD Revolution in Rush now all I want to do is buy lipstick. What are your favorite wine colored lipsticks for fall? I have fair skin, with hazel eyes, and dark drown hair. Thanks for helping me feed my addiction

Has anyone used eyeshadow shields? They seem to be great as stencils for cat eyes (it's so difficult to get them perfect). I was just wondering if it's worth the buy or if any of you lovely ladies have any DIY techniques that are similar to these eyeshadow shields.
I recently received a sample and wore this primer underneath my chanel foundation (which i use on special occasions). I noticed that when i took a picture with a flash, my face was completely white which has never happened. I didn't think a primer could do that so i wore it again last night under a darker shade of foundation and my face was still white in photo's. Normally i use smashbox's primer so i'm definitely going back unless there's a better one someone can recommend?? I am ALWAYS in pictures. Need this problem fixed haha
I've always been curious about these and since they are having their F&F I am wondering if I should take the plunge and order some. Does anyone have any experience with these or own any? Please let me know. Thanks everybody =)
So I recently bought it and I wore it yesterday for the first time. The color is way darker on my lips than when I swatched it, which is fine, HOWEVER, the problem is that it settled into my lips almost immediately and made me look like I had black blotches. It was not a flattering look. I exfoliated and primed my lips before as well. Any suggestions before I return it?
I am using Becca in Olive. In the summer it was great, but my skin is a little lighter now and it makes me look like I put tanner on. Will Buttercup work if I'm just a tad lighter? I also use CoverFX in G50, which seems to be a good match, but I like to mix it up and the coverage Becca gives is great. Thanks!
I have been trying so hard to get a smoother foundation finish but its not working! lol ive moisturize and put a primer on my skin. I exflioate twice a week and when I do I exfloiate before I put my makeup up on. Lately im starting to hate the way my makeup looks my pimples poke through alot and my face has a bumpy look to it. Can anyone please help me on what I should do. I have dry skin and I am currently using Mac Studio Fix in NC 50 and NYX HD concealer. Am I using the wrong foundation?
Naked on the Run launched at 1:00 am PST this morning, and I'm wondering who else snagged it! I did, mostly just because it looks portable and I have all of the other Naked's, so I needed to round out the collection. I also picked up a few of the liquid liners in the sale section, they're $10!
Hi! Does anyone know a color dupe of Gerard Lipstick in Buttercup and Gerard Lipgloss in Plum Crazy? Something that's either a cheap drugstore dupe or a higher end brand that I can swatch would be much appreciated
Hiya! I'm trying to find a good undereye concealer/brightener for my beautiful mom who is in her late 60s. She has sensitive eyes so it needs to be gentle and also super crease resistant because her years of love and wisdom have created lots of folds and creases around the eye, esp the "bag" area. She will not use a primer - one extra step. It would be great if it covered dark-ish circles and really brightened the whole eye, so nothing matte or cakey. thanks!!
I have a problem, so I used Too Faced "Shadow Insurance" eyeshadow primer, and I have been using it since June, but I have been to scared to buy a new primer but I am getting annoyed because, it will crease my eye makeup, it wont stay on for longer than 30 minutes, I need advice on a new eye primer! Help please!
