Re: RE: The Question Thread 2.0!!

If you're looking for a natural, non alcohol based foundation, I recommend the BAREMINERALS - Original Loose Powder Mineral Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15. It's a natural, non alcohol based product that has buildable coverage. It's my  favorite foundation for a natural, no makeup look. <333

@ixgz 

ANYTIME I try to find a foundation to replace Estee Double Wear I fail. For different reasons then you, I just want the exact shade I use in Estee (1C1) in any other long wear foundation that DOESN'T contain SPF (flashback city). 

*Sigh* Estee for life I guess. 

Re: RE: The Question Thread 2.0!!

NIOD has a product called Photography Fluid and it is supposed to combat the problem of flashback due to foundation. I've never tried it myself, but if you are not trying some great foundations because of flashback, it could be something that may interest you.

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!

Does anyone here get the Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm from Cult Beauty? I loved that stuff when it first came to Sephora, but it was reformulated and I didn't like the new version. Well I was looking at it on Cult Beauty and the ingredients list matches the original formula that I loved (I had posted the ingredients list in the Q&A, which I can still see in my profile) I was hoping someone could just confirm the ingredients the next time they buy from Cult Beauty. I'm curious to know if there are actually 2 formulas out there. 

Spoiler
These are the ingredients on Cult Beauty

RE: The Question Thread 2.0!!

I’m trying to choose a foundation. It’s down to two: Pat McGrath’s new one, or Laura Mercier’s Lumiére Perfection. Which has better medium coverage, and which has a natural or radiant finish? Both names imply a radiant or natural finish, but reviewers (especially the Mercier ones) describe it as ‘light matte.’ Can anyone share their experience with either or both of these?

Re: RE: The Question Thread 2.0!!

Do you ever watch Angie on Hot and Flashy on YouTube? She tests all kinds of foundations using all different kinds of primers, application techniques, ect.  and then reviews them on her channel, Hot and Flashy. It is supposed to be for women over 50, but she does a fantastic job and has reviewed many, many brands. If you click on the more button under the video, you can go to her list of foundations she has tested. I just watched the one for the L.M. foundation. From what I saw, it is a more sheer and can be built up to a medium. She also did the P.M.G. foundation, but I didn't watch that one.

Re: RE: The Question Thread 2.0!!

@MamaBare27 I've tried both but don't own full sizes of either. LM is more medium and has a really beautiful finish. I don't think it's matte, more of a satin or natural finish.  A lot of times how radiant a foundation is depends on your skin prep. The PMG starts of pretty sheer and is buildable but if you take into consideration price and what you are looking for, I'd say go for the LM. 

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: RE: The Question Thread 2.0!!

@Brandiwally are you hoping to get one from NARS's line, like the NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer? I would say maybe Cannelle or Creme Brulee depending on how light you want it.

RE: Re: RE: The Question Thread 2.0!!

I usually wear NARS in Deauville, and the NARS concealer in Creme Brulee. Works great.

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!!

I've tried this body wash and it's amazing for dry skin! I also don't have Eczema, but my body is dry and I find this really hydrates my skin. <333

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!!

@EsinaJ thanks so much for your thorough response! I've been wanting to try that L'Occitane body wash so I might splurge on that instead. Thank you!

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?

@andreadaqueen if you apply setting powder and bake it will definitely help keep oil at Bay 😉

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!

@makeitup305 not sure if you've found any, but @Buootiful...

@makeitup305 not sure if you've found any, but @Buootiful sent me some amazing makeup eraser rounds and they are fabulous! I use them for toner or micellar water, just about anything
