I've had my eyes on the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector highlighter for a while and I really want to go ahead and purchase one of the shades. I'm in between moonstone and opal. If any of you have these highlighters let me know your opinion on them. I have very fair skin, which of the 2 would work best for me?
I am in a desperate search for this in shade #42. I'm getting ready to relocate to Singapore and even though there are Sephora stores there, I want this to take with me to cut down on the stress of finding the store and then locating this shade. Since I have seen inquiries about this particular shade so much on Sephora....why was it discontinued????
I'd love to know what you gals (or maybe guys) use or suggest as a primer. In addition to longevity I'm looking something with a smoothing effect for pores and baby wrinkles. I am finishing up my Stila color correcting primer which did nothing for my slight redness but it def gave staying power. I had been waiting for months for sephora to restock illamasqua hydra veil buttttt it seems like they won't be restocking it at all. And I don't want to pay the ridiculous taxes and shipping to have it sent from the UK. I was looking at the Clarins or too faced. Any suggestions??
I recently had my color IQ captured at a store and I am a 1Y02. One of the matches that comes up is for Marc Jacobs Beauty Marvelous Mousse Transformative Foundation in Color 12 Ivory - for very fair complexion w/pink to beige undertone. I think I might like to try Marc Jacobs Beauty Genius Gel Super-Charged Foundation, but the colors are listed without the nice descriptors like the Mousse variety. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what color would be the closest match? Thanks in advance for your advice!
I feel eye shadow is the most universal item. So many colors, brand, prices. But, even if eye shadow is not your favorite you crave more. Last year I bought stila in the lights, Bh cosmetics's party girl. Now I want Too Face Chocolate Bar, The Divergent Multi collection, Naked Basics, Naked 3. Anyone else have a hard time finding a reason for more.
Hi everyone! I can't decide what powder foundation buy, I have the MUFE Pro finish powder foundation (I'm the shade 117 golden ivory) I have very oily skin and I feel the pro finish don't do much against that. Which one do you recommend?
C'mon, let's admit it, we've all hidden make-up or made up what we use to our family. Remember the days for some of us where we had to pretend we didn't wear make-up and we put a lipstick under the bed so mom wouldn't see? Or lied about how much you've spent? Welcome to: Make-Up Confessions! (Just please don't tell my grandma about my extensive Guerlain collection! I think she may have saw the packaging though...) My grandma prefers I use cheaper make-up from drugstores... oh man, that VIB card is not going to make her happy...
I was on Reddit's Makeup Addiction and user MyLittleLabMonkey posted a sneak preview of the new Too Faced Summer Collection. I didn't find a previous discussion on it, so sorry if it's a repost!

So, last weekend a couple of friends and I decided to go to a bar/club in town to hang out. I got way dolled up and, in the process, discovered a new style of lipstick application that I love! And to be frank, I discovered in completely by accident while trying to decide what color to wear. So, I'm wondering, does anyone else wear this style occasionally? (Weird and awkward selfie included to show off what I mean! Not to mention, I'm a camera queen. )
I think I saw a couple of people here on BT looking for the Anastasia Lavish Palette but couldnt because it was sold out everywhere. I follow ABH on Instagram and she mentioned she will be restocking this palette in limited quantities sometime soon. So if you want it, get on instagram and follow her so you can get it as soon as its re-released before it sells out again!
My Guerlain foundation is a serial oxidizer! I use Tenue de Perfection and without a primer, I STILL LOOK LIKE SNOOKI. I went from shade 23 to 04 (ok, not much of a difference there), but it'll look fine with a primer (me thinks) I only got a few days to exchange (stupid online orders!) and I'm looking at the Joli Teint. Should I give my Tenue de Perfection another chance or switch out? This is the second oxidation problem since I had Lingerie de Peau. Joli Teint is new. I'm getting into fights because I really A. plan to get it for Chic Week or I have to use my VIB intro coupon that I saved from last year. Plus Joli Teint seems better in terms of formulation. It's lighter coverage...
I've been under the impression that: olive undertones are green peach are more red olive undertones are the darker version of yellow undertones Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm having a hard time finding my undertone. I've done the inner wrist test and my veins are blue but cool foundations do not match my face at all. Foundations with olive undertones look green on my skin, so I'm guessing I'm either yellow or golden, but I'm not really sure what the difference is. I've gone to get matched at the store several times but the color is always wrong.
Hello everyone, I need some help my grandparents are coming over from Korea and I was thinking of sending some gifts for some cousins and aunts on their way back.. I thought lipsticks/lip glosses were a reasonable choice because they're light weight, is small in volume, and isn't overly expensive... but I have like zero knowledge about lip products.. I'm more of a foundation and eyeliner junkie ..and I don't wear lipsticks/gloss or even balm.. so I honestly don't know what to look for in lip products - which qualities are characterized as being "good" and which are "bad".. I don't mind the brand, but I do want it to be a good quality.. and not overly expensive.. because I'm buying at least 5~7. I tried going to the lipstick section on sephora website and line them in order of "rating" and got Nars, Dior, Sephora, givenchy, Laura Mercier, etc but that's too many options.. I was also thinking about Marc jacobs because they don't have that brand in Korea.. also, most of my family (especially younger ones in 20s) are pretty pale.. like YSL touche eclat BR10 ish.. and m y aunts are a tad bit darker with yellow undertones. please help one of my cousins is into Mac's Korean candy.. reddish glowy orange color (from what I see online.. not in person) is there any "better quality" lipstick that has the same color? I read somewhere that they settle in fine lines of the lips..
I was interested in buying Duo false eyelash glue, until I noticed latex was the second ingredient. I'm allergic to latex and I feel scared of putting something with it on the sensitive eye area. Do any of you beauties know any falsies or falsie glue without latex?
Hey BTers, I asked you all a while ago about makeup/skincare tips for days that I work out. Based on your suggestions, here's what seems to work well for me: 1. In the morning for work,I keep it simple by just wearing either foundation or BB cream, blush, eyebrow pencil and lipstick. Because my eyes are really sensitive, I don't wear any eye makeup before I work out because I don't want any residue getting into my eyes when I sweat. 2. Before I work out, I use a makeup removing wipe to get as much of it off as I can. Then of course tie my hair back. 3. After I work out, I use a mild face wash to remove the dirt and sweat. I don't use my regular cleanser because it's fairly strong, and since I use it morning and evening, I thought midday too would be too hard on my skin. I follow that with a mild toner (no alcohol) to remove excess dirt. 4. For makeup, I put on BB cream, mascara, a bit of eyeshadow, pencil my eyebrows and lipstick. That's it! I hope this helps anyone wondering about skincare/makeup on days you work out.
A couple times a week...... I guess Sephora has a way of doing this to me. I just ordered on Saturday because I noticed the Sephora favorite mascara set was back in stock. Then today I get an email for a set of 3 Origin products. Please tell me I'm not alone and you all do this too
I'm looking to purchase the tarte foundation + brush kit on QVC and I've noticed they have a smaller color selection than if you bought the foundation alone. It'll say Fair, Light, Light-Medium, Medium, Tan, Deep... but how am I suppose to know what undertones they have? The regular foundation without the brush will say the undertones.
