Drugstore foundations Not matching my skin
I have oily skin and I have the Loreal Matte Foundation in 102 shell beige which is the wrong undertone and too dark and the Maybelline Matte foundation in 115 ivory which is the wrong undertone and too dark and orange as well. I bought a foundation whitener and it doesn't seem to help. I have tried mixing the foundations in different combinations to make it match my skin but it didn't work. More than anything they are either too dark or not my skin undertone. There aren't very many foundations in the drugstore good for oily skin. I would buy a foundation from Sephora but I am a broke university student. I am going into a Sephora today to get colour matched and maybe get samples of foundations. What should I do? Try to buy another foundation to mix into the 2 I already have? I just don't want to waste the 2 foundations even though I have already spent the money.

Marc Jacobs Highliner Matte Gel Eye crayon
Comparing to other gel eyeliners I've tried Marc Jacobs #highliner glides on perfectly, with great pigmentation and it blends so well that I couldn't believe. I used to be a Urban Decay liners' fan but now it is my favourite one. It totally worthes every cent! And lasts all day! I received it as complimentary product from @influenster and @marcbeauty and I can't wait to buy more colors and play with them all! #contest

Best primer under stick foundation?
Hi everyone! So the past few weeks I've been really into stick foundations - both the hourglass vanish and the lancome teint idole. Both I love and find very similar except you need to swipe the lancome twice as much to get the same coverage as hourglass. That being said, the big problem is I can't get the foundation to "stick" to my nose or t-zone. I have applied with brush and beauty blender - brush application essentially wipes the foundation away, so beauty blender has been my go to.   I have tried pore minimizing primers - e.g. porefessional, tarte timeless smoothing, as well as guerlain l'or (whichcauses my foundation to stick in weird areas making it patchy...only with these foundations though, I love it otherwise), and the foundation just slides around my face and breaks up. I set with laura mercier translucent and then spray UD all-nighter. I LOVE these foundations, but I am scared to touch my face because it will remove my makeup. I have also tried no primer, just my moisturizer (see below), which is better but it still ends up sliding off my nose relatively quickly.   I consider my skin to be normal to dry. My skin routine is as follows:   Night time: Cleanse (amorepacific) w/ foreo luna 2, tone (pixi glow tonic), facial sleeping oil (kiehl's), moisturize (first aid beauty)   Day time: Same as night time but no oil. I was using a serum before moisturizing but I took that out because I thought it was causing my makeup to slide around, but I think it's the silicone primers.   My next step is to try the veil mineral primer by hourglass.   Does anyone have any advice on how to keep my foundation in place? Also, I should mention that this problem happens with most foundations, nothing seems to want to stick! But it's particularly bad with stick foundations. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

MUFE Ultra HD to Estee Lauder Double Wear
I've been wanting to try out the Double Wear foundation from Estee Lauder, but don't have a Sephora that carries it in-store to get matched. I decided to just purchase online and return it if need be, but now I need help finding a shade.   I've been using MUFE Ultra HD in the shade Y255 and it matches me perfectly. Can anyone recommend a double wear shade they think will work for me?   Please and thank you!

UD Foundation Shades vs. Kat Von D Foundation Shades?
I am currently wearing a 3.25. in Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless foundation. Once spring arrives, I'll wear a 3.5. I have cool toned skin with pink undertones. What shade would I wear in Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation? I purchased 52, but it's a little dark and will probably work fine in summer, but I'm hoping for a better match now.

Specific question for those that currently use NARS Sheer Glow!
Hello all!   So my current best foundation color match is NARS Siberia. I've been using the Sheer Glow for the past three months and I'm still trying to "figure it out". I feel like the formula is really finicky and I have yet to find a good combination of primers and/or setting powder/spray to make it both last well & mesh well with my skin. I don't think it's a skincare problem as my skin has been relatively normal-dry these past few months (no big skin changes and my daywear moisturizer is relatively 'basic'. I save my layers of hydration for overnight).   So far things I have tried:   - Too Faced Hangover: helped hydrate dry patches that Sheer Glow emphasizes but doesn't help longevity. Sheer Glow still applies a little patchy over this - Becca Ever Matte: too matte for Sheer Glow which tends to emphasize any dry patch - Hourglass Mineral Veil: seems to be the best combo so far, but doesn't help with Sheer Glow longevity. Still totally starts breaking down/melting by hour three. - A single drop of argan oil: makes Sheer Glow apply so smooth and evenly BUT foundation is totally breaking up on my face a couple hours into wear. - RCMA No Color Powder (talc + silica): is okay, but makes Sheer Glow a little dry looking, doesn't totally help with lasting powder - CoverFx Illuminating Setting Powder: doesn't make Sheer Glow look dry, but definitely doesn't help with lasting powder - Urban Decay All Nighter spray: makes Sheer Glow tacky, maybe helps lasting power when in combo with a powder as well   For the sake of a control, all foundation application has been to dot it on with fingers and blend with beautyblender.   I've tried various combinations of one of the primers + powder + spray, primer + no powder, no primer + powder, etc. etc. It's been a long somewhat scientific process, haha.   I would just love for this foundation to work on me! I love the color and I can put up with the sheerness of it if I can just get it to work Most days in the morning I've been in too much of a rush to play this long layering game with Sheer Glow and I've been slapping a little Tarte shape tape everywhere and pretending it's foundation, lol   TLDR:  My question to those who currently use NARS Sheer Glow and it looks good on their skin. What combination of primer / powder / spray /technique do you use to make it wear nicely?

Mascara
I was obsessed with lancome l'extreme mascara, because it volumized, defined, and lengthened without looking too crazy, but my tube is empty and I thin it's been discontinued. Any similar suggestions>

Miss A
Has anyone shopped online Miss A? I saw a Yahoo article on it today.  Everything is $1. This includes makeup, scarves, jewelry, masks, supplies, etc. I'm sure at $1 it's probably not the greatest quality, but they have a huge selection. Has anyone tried it?

Can you bake your face using HD powder?
I simply cannot seem to find the answer to my question on the internet! Are you able to bake your face using HD powder or do you need to use a translucent setting powder? I know that HD powder is considered a "finishing" powder, but is translucent powder a finishing power or a setting powder? Thank you for reading!

Recommendations for this lip color?
She said in the video that it's Estee Edit coco balm in blush layered over a lip liner but did not mention the lip liner. The balm by itself is too sheer, and I can tell it will be more so on my tanner complexion. Does anyone have any suggestions? I love this shade! It's so fresh!

OCC - Crème Colour Concentrate - Sephora has them for $10
If you like OCC Creme Color Concentrate Sephora still has them and they are only $10. I ordered two of the John Doe and they arrived without issue. I didn't want to post until I was able to actually try them and make sure they weren't old and yucky, but they're good.   http://www.sephora.com/creme-colour-concentrate-P3 77410?skuId=1579580
