RE: The Question Thread 2.0!!

Okay I have this foundation and I love it. But I have no idea on what color concealer to get at all...and the closest Sephora is literally 4 hours away from me.

RE: The Question Thread 2.0!!

@Brandiwally I typically go a shade or two lighter with my under eye concealer. Are you asking about it for your under eye concealer or is the concealer for imperfections? If this is the case I would recommend a shade that is as closely matched to your foundation.

RE: The Question Thread 2.0!!

For under eye. I just have no idea what shade to get for a concealer.

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!

Has anyone tried the SKINFIX - Eczema+ Foaming Oil Body Wash? I don't have eczema but the skin on my body is super dry right now and I though this might do the trick. If not, please let me know your most hydrating body washes!

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!

Hi @makeitup305. I've tried the Skinfix Eczema+ Foaming Oil and am eczema-prone. I think how hydrating you find it might be relative to what you use now. I find it similar to Cerave SA Wash or IT Confidence in a Cleanser but honestly, more stripping. For ref.: I usually use Eczema washes, Baby washes, or mix a simple, thin lotion into any wash.

 

If I were ranking most to least soothing (that still actually cleanse), I'd say - 1) Lotiony: Cetaphil Ezcema Calming Wash, Mustela Stelatopia. 2) Oil-ish: Occitane Almond Shower Oil. 3) Gelly: Cerave SA Wash, Mustela Gentle Cleansing Gel, Aveeno Baby (despite the nozzle). 4) Lotiony: Dove washes. 5) Skinfix Eczema+ Foaming Oil, Johnson's Shea Baby Wash. 6) Most regular washes. HTH! Smiley Happy

RE: The Question Thread 2.0!!

I have combination/oily skin (t-zone area, laugh lines and chin area) and since abh is coming out with a dewy foundation that I really really wanna try out since im so used to having a mattifying foundation, is it any good for my skin type? is there anything i should do before applying a dewy foundation?

Re: RE: The Question Thread 2.0!!

@andreadaqueen I wouldn't worry too much.  One of the perks of makeup is just how versatile it is!  I'd use a more mattifying primer in your oily spots and if you find you're getting greasy throughout the day, try setting it to see if it makes a difference.

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!

@WinglessOne was it you that was looking for reusable cotton pads? I've been wanting to switch to reduce some of my waste and was wondering if you'd found any that were good for use with toner. Sorry if it wasn't you!

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!

@makeitup305  Nope, I’m the one who found reusable rounds last year. Smiley Happy I bought mine on Amazon. Since they do tend to absorb toner, I usually apply toner to my face with my fingers (or spray it on my face) and then wipe it with one of my rounds. That works quite well for me. 

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!

ok thanks @WinglessOne ! I think I'm gonna pick some up soon and give them a shot.

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!

OK.. question thread to rescue again... I used to be able to post links to other threads within BIC but now it is not working and then link is faulty and always "not found". I don't see an icon to add that and when I copy-paste web adress html is becoming wonky. Is it just me?

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!

@naturalooks15 I just tried it and it seemed to work just fine. Are you on mobile or the app?

RE: The Question Thread 2.0!!

I wanted to try a different concealer than I already have and I wanted to know what everyone else is using and which one you would recommend for me. I have combination type skin and would like something that’s medium coverage

Re: RE: The Question Thread 2.0!!

RE: The Question Thread 2.0!!

I switched form the Laura Mercer concealer to the too faced born this way one. It’s medium coverage and very very easy to blend.

Re: RE: The Question Thread 2.0!!

@claudiabonilla I use Cle de Peau concealer that has spf in it. 

Re: RE: The Question Thread 2.0!!

HI @claudiabonilla I agree with @SpaceLlama and @danielledanielle the nars radiant creamy concealer is gorgeous, I also love the BAREMINERALS - BARESKIN® Complete Coverage Serum Concealerit's so smooth and lightweight but provides great coverage. Plus bareminerals is cruelty-free! 

Re: RE: The Question Thread 2.0!!

My absolute fave concealer is the NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer.I keep trying out other concealers that are cheaper to save money, but I keep coming back to this one because it's so good 🙈 The coverage is amazing and it blends out easily Smiley Happy @claudiabonilla 

Same @SpaceLlama! I've tried a few, but always make sure...

Same @SpaceLlama! I've tried a few, but always make sure I have my NARS on hand. I do like ELF's 12 hr camo concealer, but the shades can be a tad off... and it's a really THICK concealer, so I just use a little at a time. I also kinda like Jouer's concealer. Hard to match because most stores don't carry it, but I've liked what I've tried thus far.

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!

How do I access threads that I have bookmarked? I searched and got posts from 2014 but those instructions seem to be outdated now.
