2. i use the smooth indulgance concealer i hate the smooth indulgance foundation it settled into every line and every pore and slid off my face in a few hours.
That news is a bummer and doesn't bode well; even on its best days, my skin is oily, has large pores, and has some fine lines. Your experience makes me concerned that I'd have the same problems with the Smooth Indulgence foundation.
the concealer however does not do that and it also has spf 20 in it. it covers very very well. my new favorite is the intense powder camo foundation because my face tends to get oily and when i want a heavier coverage i go with this stuff.
I assume that you use the concealer only on very small/specific spots--such as actual scars and/or breakouts--rather than on most of your face, yes?
That's interesting news about the Intense Powder Camo Foundation. It's a bit pricey, though, at $30 for a compact--especially when the product quantity isn't stated. *sigh*
4. i have never used the setting powder but i wonder if i should get it for the summer when my face is even more oily
I'm wondering if the Smooth Indulgence foundation might work better on your skin if you were to use the setting powder? Just a thought.
5. i use proactiv glyocolic acid toner to remove the makeup and dead skin on my face every evening.
I'm not a Proactiv user, but it's good to know that other products can thoroughly remove Dermablend foundation. (The company, of course, makes it seem as if only it's makeup remover can do the job. Heh...)
one more note you can get the stuff at ulta and try it out and whatever you dont like you can return.
Thank you for that pointer. I'm probably going to go to Ulta because I want to look at a few makeup types, anyway--including Dermablend and bareMinerals.
I don't know if you live anywhere near a Meijer grocery store--which, of course, does not carry pricier makeup--know that you can return products there if they don't work out for any reason. I really like Target in general but was very disappointed when someone on this forum stated that that store doesn't accept any makeup returns. Boo.
