Like most girls I've been wearing makeup since jr. highish age and have always struggled finding the correct shade. I'm also very low maintenance and prefer super simple, easy to do makeup, but I've been dealing with severe adult acne and have started using makeup more and more to help cover up and draw attention away from my problem areas. I went to a Sephora store and was color matched as 1R05. I bought the bareMinerals matte foundation in fair and correcting concealer in light 1, which both match my skin wonderfully. I'm wanting to find blush and/or bronzer to do some simple contouring, but am totally lost as to how to choose the correct shade. Please help! Thank you.
I want to start anew, I tried looking for recent threads and I couldn't find any. Show us your finds. I believe I found a Guerlain Maxi lash dupe in Almay brand. Here are the pictures and wand comparison. I also applied it to my lashes and my lashes look the same as when I appl y Guerlain (sample I had). My lashes look long and full after one application, as well as natural. Also, they are SOFT, just like with Guerlain. I'll post pictures of my eye in a bit. even though the almay looks more full, it does the same thing guerlain did for me. I definitely say give this one a try unless you can't live without the rosy smell guerlain has the one on the right is with mascara. i removed it on the other side. One thing this mascara claims is that your lashes will grow longer with prolonged use. I for one am willing to t ry this by buying more when this one runs out because i'm actually liking the mascara application.
I've been hijacking threads lately with my various color challenges. It's time for it's own place! The rules: Each week (Sunday- Saturday) there will be a new color to incorporate into your makeup looks. It can be one item of that color or a whole face. Try to incorporate it 4-5 times during the week, and post your pic, or discuss your colors here with everyone! If you can only do a day or two, that's fine too! This should be fun! For folks on a No Buy, it's a great way to Shop your collection.

I have fine lines, and my concealer really badly creases! I've used primer on my under-eyes, eye cream, lotion, many different concealers (tarte waterproof, tarte creaseless, kat von d tattoo, mac pro longwear and many more) along with many different powders. I've tried waiting a bit to set, and I've set it right after blending. Nothing seems to work, and it only gets worse throughout the day! I'm only 22 and I don't think this should be a huge issue at this age (fine lines)! Can anyone suggest an amazing combination? I've also tried doubling up on concealers/correctors. Nothing has worked! Also they are slightly dry, especially with mac pro longwear.
Hey Beauties- We have ALOT of threads around here for Tom Ford products. I figured I'd start one thread where we can update each other on items as they come out or we see them available. For all my UK'ers, or people willing to pay for shipping from the UK, Harrods has Softcore and Nude Dip from the Fall collection available right now. Happy Shopping!
hi I'm interested in a nice dewy glow finish for my dry skin. Can anyone suggest any drug store or Sephora makeup setting sprays that will make my makeup last with giving me the dewy glow as well.? I would appreciate suggestions. Looking for an affordable spray that will do the job. Thanks.

Quick question: my mom wanted a eye shadow palette focusing in the brown family. I was torn between the Kat Von D Shade and Light Contour Palette and Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics. Which palette would people recommend? Thanks!
I believe I used too tacky a base for my Too Faced Natural Matte. The eyeshadows seem super powdery and there is a lot of fallout. Would the Neutral Matte be any better- even though some of the shadows are the same and overlap but are the shimmery shades better or do they have the same amount of fallout? I am thinking about exchanging the Matte palette but then again perhaps I need a better primer. I used too tacky a primer which I already know was my mistake and the eyeshadow clumped in places and seemed patchy. Who loves this palette and how do you prefer to use it? Do you find the fallout a turn off?? Thanks <3
On the Bite Beauty thread, we've been recently discussing the transformative effect that Bite Beauty's Opal (comes in lipstick and gloss; both exclusively available at Sephora) has on different shades of lipstick. I would love to see what Opal does to all different brands and colors of lipstick. So, if you have Opal lipstick or gloss, could you please post a "before" picture of your lips with whatever lipstick you choose and then an "after" picture with Opal applied over the top of it? The more colors you want to try, the better! Thank you!!!
I recently tried the halo powder and am in love with the beautiful glowing finishing. The problem is that I can't seem to find a color match in smashbox . My skin is light/medium olive and the light/med powder was quite dark and a bit orange on my skin after it oxidized. The light/neutral powder looked quite pale. The Bare minerals in medium beige is a great color match but not the glowing finish of halo. I love how the halo glows without any trace of glitter or sparkle.
Hey! I purchased the Stila 'Eyes Are the Window Soul' pallete about a year ago and loved the color 'Individual'. I used it everyday until I dropped my pallete and broke the color just recently. I can't seem to find this color just sold alone (I think you can only purchase it in the pallete) and I don't need to repurchase the pallet because I only want 'Individual'. I was wondering if anyone knew of any dupes of this color or if you can purchase the color as a single. Thanks!
Hi, I just recently purchased the Sephora Rouge Infusion Lip Ink in # 10 Red Essence and I LOVE it!!! I was wondering if any of you guys know a good lip liner that will pair well with this product to make last a little longer. Thank you in advanced to every suggestions! -Maria
I posted about this on another board a moment ago, forgetting that the Customer Service board doesn't appear in the "feed." I was wondering if anyone else has had this happen: Okay, this is strange. I just received my order for the MUFE HD powder (full-size.) All my samples were there. My point perk was there. My promo code sample bag was there. The MUFE HD powder box was there. I picked up the MUFE box and immediately could tell it was way too light - sure enough it was empty! My item was not included. I just called the Rouge line and explained to a staff member. She is re-sending the powder, which I appreciate! And I still have my travel size in my purse to use while I wait. But I made a suggestion; I asked if she could report to this to the company. As awful as it is to suggest, I don't see how you could pick up the powder box to add it to an order and not KNOW it was empty. Could someone be stealing products? I'm wondering if I sounded horrible for suggesting it. :-( Good old human error is certainly a possibility. But if there is a pattern of products not reaching customers from a specific warehouse or whatever, that is worth an investigation.
Hi I am looking for a nice blush to accent my face. I am fair skin to closer to the side of pale and have to be careful because blush can do more damage than good on my skin. I tend to look clown like. But I am on the hunt for a nice natural blush, almost to add a glow. Any suggestions for the porcelain folks like me?
Hi I recently purchased champagne pop and it didn't catch my interest like I thought it would. I feel like its not much of a glow. I'm light/fair skin tone color. I'm looking for something that will make my face pop and people can see the glow from a distance away. I like the josie maren illuminating wand stick its creamy texture gives my dry skin such a nice glow, I just feel the brightness doesn't stand out as much, Can anyone suggest any nice popping highlighters for decent price either creamy texture form or liquid, or any powder that will stand out. Thanks

I know a lot of people use the MAC Mist/Spray thing when using loose or any type of glitter/shimmer eyeshadow so it help sticks and stays put all day. I think $26.00 for the MAC Fix Plus is expensive. Is there a cheaper way to do that? Like anyone have a DIY idea? If anyone uses other techniques that are cheaper, please let me know!
