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
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 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 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!
I'm new to liquid lipsticks, and have only swatched them on my hands. Brands and price don't matter, I would just like a few recommendations. I also have blue eyes and blonde hair, with very dry skin and lips.
With so many users looking for the right product to use on their fair/pale/alabaster skin, I thought it would be great to start a thread specifically for this. Some of the main questions I see have to do with the following: - Foundation/concealer shades - Contouring - Highlighting I'll be posting comparison reviews and photos of everything I can get my hands on with these categories, as well as any others that people would like to inquire about. If you'd like to give input as well, please list the following: - Skin IQ/MAC ID/describe skin tone and undertones - Skin type - Foundation matches (make it clear what is a perfect match if you have one, and what is slightly off) - (optional, but highly helpful) Photos of your skin with and without makeup, swatch comparisons, etc. Please ensure there is proper lighting, with little colour overcast (like fluorescent lighting). ME: Skin IQ: 1y02 (closest neutral "match") MAC: NC8-10 Skintone is very pale, neutral to cool toned, translucent, prone to burning and freckles. Some surface redness. Cannot tan whatsoever. Type: Currently normal/combo. Slightly sensitive. Prone to dryness/patches and oilier nose. Foundation Matches: - Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer sx01 (99% match; more neutral toned, which evens out my redness perfectly) - CoverFX Custom Drops N10 (same tone as KA SS) - Dolce & Gabbana 60 Classic (perfect match) - MUFE HD Foundation Y205 (ever so slightly too light, but looks super natural with contour or blended with a drop of coverfx n10) - Giorgio Armani Luminessence (slightly cooler toned, great match though) - NARS Chantilly Concealer - DiorSkin Nude BB Cream 001 (slightly darker and too pink, but wearable, especially if wearing contour or bronzer) - KVD 42 Common recommendations that are too dark for me: Urban Decay Naked Foundation 0.5 (too dark for me, but would for for a tone darker than I) YSL (Touche Eclat concealer in 1.5 works though) GA Hourglass Tarte EL Too Faced Smashbox (fair is slightly too dark; would work for some a tone darker than I) Dior Foundations/serums (other than the one BB cream) Too light: MJ Genius Gel cream 010 Foundation comparison swatches in natural light: L-R: Spoiler (Highlight to read) NARS Chantilly Concealer MUFE Y205 D&G Classic 60 KA SSE sx01 GA Luminessence CoverfX Custom Drops N10 DiorSkin Nude BB Cream 001 UD Naked 0.5 NARS Chantilly ConcealerMUFE Y205D&G Classic 60KA SSE sx01GA LuminessenceCoverfX Custom Drops N10DiorSkin Nude BB Cream 001UD Naked 0.5 Contour: WIP Highlighting: WIP Let me know if you'd like any other categories, would like more info, or have any questions!
As a 3Y05, what color(s) should I get for bareMinerals' Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream, Burberry's Fresh Glow B.B. Cream, Giorgio Armani's Luminessence CC Color Control Bright Moisturizer SPF 35, and Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage?
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!
I'm looking for opinions from persons who have tried both Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous base in nude v. Laura Mercier Radiance Primer. Specifically the sparkle factor, longevity, and "feel". I like the subtle sparkle factor of the Burberry, it makes it through a 12 hr stretch well, and it doesn't leave me with a "tacky" feel. I haven't tried the Laura Mercier, it interests me more due to it's availability (why is Burberry Always out of stock Sephora?) and the lower price point. The biggest turn off for me would be if it was a glitter bomb. So whats the verdict BT, is the LM a reasonable dupe for the Burberry when taking these preferences into consideration?
Hello, I'm on the search for an eyliner that will stay on all day. My problem is my bangs sweep across my eyelid and the oil in my hair products causes the eyeliner to disappear. I've tried gel eyeliners, pencil and liquid...nothing seems to work (other than changing my hairstyle). Any suggestions?
I am having a terrible time finding a highlighter for my pale skin. For reference: I use the Bare Minerals Original Foundation in Fair. I have tried several concealers/highlighters. My most recent attempt is with the Bare Minerals Stroke of Light in Luminous 1. When I apply the highlight, it looks great. However, as the product dries, it darkens and does not look quite right. Any suggestions?
So when I put on my foundation is makes my skin look very unnatural and like I'm wearing a ton when in reality I'm not putting a lot on.(appears cakey and pores can be very visible) I am currently using Nars Sheer Glow Foundation.. just curious if anyone can help me out with my problem.
