What is the best drugstore foundation that is almost full coverage and for combination skin?
Hi! I am looking for a holy grail foundation for those of us with combination skin! I am not too oily on a daily basis but am far from being bone dry either. I am looking for a drug store one that is full coverage and would fit me everyday for school,work, athletic events, etc. Any suggestions?

Dip Brow Shade?
Hello!     I am looking into getting Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow, and I am not quite sure which shade to get.  I have black eyebrows, medium brown skin, and reddish hair. I was looking at the granite shade but I  feel like that would look way too unnatural! I was thinking about maybe ebony or a dark brown? Thanks!

Q. MJ Lovemarc Lip Gel vs New Nude Sheer Lip Gel
Is there any difference between the two besides the color of the tube?  I currently have the Lovemarc in "Role Play" and was curious if the New Nude Sheer in "Role Play" is exactly the same or a more sheer version of the same color?  Thanks!!

Want to try a new powder foundation/color match issues
I am currently using bare minerals matte powder foundation in medium, along with tarte timeless smoothing primer and tarte bb tinted primer in light. I wanted to switch to the Tarte Amazonian clay full coverage powder foundation, but when I was color IQ'd at my local sephora the color she put on me was way too light. I went back yesterday and switched almost all the colors but can't decide between the light to medium shades as to which one I should use. I am also concerned about the amount of sparkle I saw in the tarte powder because I like a matte finish. Does anyone have any suggestions of a different powder foundation? I have oily, ance prone skin. I am not sure what my color IQ number was, but also a suggestion on the best match for the tarte powder would be appreciated also!  Thanks in advance!

Looking for a cool pink lipcolour
Hi everyone,   I'm looking for a lipcolour, of any brand or formulation, that's similar to the Nars Rikugien in the birthday set, but a bluer/cooler pink. Any suggestions?   Do you have any favourite cool/blue-pink or lavender lipcolours?

sheer lip colors
I am looking for a fresher color on my lips. I have trouble with color bleeding thru the lip line (upper only) I love the Addict series by Dior, and I also like lip gloss. I am over 60, so I do have some creases/wrinkles in the upper lip area to deal with. My best color family is coral to sheer orange. Pinks with a blue or cool tone don't work. Any suggestions?

Dark Circles?
I have very dark under eye circles. Is there a product to help me brighten them, and are there any really good concealers to cover them up? I've used NARS radiant creamy concealer, and makeup forever's full cover concealer and they can't quite cover them up.

Foundation for hot and humid weather?
Hey everyone! So I'm moving to a state with a completely different climate than the one I currently live in. Right now, my skin is a bit oily with some dryness to it due to some acne medication. Next month, I'll be moving to a state with a MUCH warmer and humid climate so I'm looking for a new foundation! I currently use Revlon's 24 hour one, but I'm wanting to switch to something that doesn't feel so heavy! I'm thinking of maybe the Bare Minerals selections.   Any suggestions?

I use smashbox 15 hr. foundation.  In summer I use 2.4 but in winter I mix 2.4 & 2.2 equal parts.  My question is would 2.3 be equal to my mix or would it be too red/orange I see it has a warm base.

Foundation hack that Changed my life. Powder before Foundation.
I saw this on YouTube and it really did work. It's kind of weird though. Using loose powder before applying your liquid foundation. What you do is put on your moisturizer and.or primer as usual then you powder your face with loose powder, not pressed powder in a compact. It can be loose powder such as Nars Loose Setting Powder or even one that has color to it like Urban Decay Ultra Definition Loose Powder which is what I use. So you powder your face then apply your liquid foundation or BB cream. The powder gives the liquid something to stick to and holds your skin care in place underneath the foundation. I found that I use less foundation this way also. After the foundation you only need to powder again in you T zone. My foundation stays in place and doesn't slip and slide. Even not coming off so easily on shirts. I love this hack, it may not work for everyone but it's worth a try. Good luck!

bb cream for neutral skin tone
Hey ladies! I'm stuck in the hunt for BB creams! I have a neutral skin tone, and i feel like every BB cream i find is either too pink toned, or too orange! I LOOOVE the smashbox photoready BB cream! The light/neutral shade is perfect for me, but the price! Yikes!

Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Crème Lipsticks?
I need swatches!!! As I see the new collection fly out of stock online, I've been scouring the internet for swatches to get a better feel of how the shades look. Most of them also look to be multiple shades of pink on the Sephora site, which doesn't seem to match up with the shade descriptions provided. Can anyone share their experiences so that, you know, I'm hopefully not compelled to get 18 out of 20 of them?

The Makeup Show (TMS) NYC 2015
I know everyone love IMATS, but it seems like a huge crowd and I have some anxiety with very large groups...even when there is makeup LOL   I want to go to TMS-NYC in May, but I'm not sure how to go about getting tickets.  The site says you have to have credentials.  I'm just a makeup lover. I can buy tickets, but I have no credentials.   I could probably make up a "business card" but I'm no MUA, and it feels sleazy to lie.   So is anyone been to this show?  Anyone else going?  I've seen YT videos and it seems a bit less crowded than IMATS and it has some of the vendors I would love see.   Crown Brush MUFE &MUFE academy Kevyin A. Inglot Bdellium Graftobian   ...to list a few.

foundation colour match! (and comparison b/t giorgio armani vs. YSL)
Hi, I am looking for a new foundation to try. I have dry and very sensitive skin   I am currently using benefits hello flawless oxygen wow, and the colour is "I'm plush and precious, petal".   and I am thinking to get one of those foundations from YSL or Giorgio Armani.   I tried YSL's LE TEINT TOUCHE ÉCLAT Illuminating, shade 30  but I think it kinda dries out my skin but I liked the finish look.   Sephora that located near my area does not carry Giorgio Armani so that I could not try but I have heard so many people complimenting the product.   So I'd like to get some recommendation of those foundations or others that would work for me as well as the shade   Thanks.
