  1. The best lipstick formula Ive used is from Bare Escentuals. Very creamy and not waxy. Doesnt feel like lipstick. Or smell like one. Doesnt dry out the lips either. The maybelline line has many shades of nude, inexpensive and are easy to find.
  2. I use Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. It's great for oily/combination skin. Nighttime I use Shiseido The Skincare Night Moisture Recharge Enriched cream.
  3. I'm a fan of Makeup Forever's Duo Mat powder foundation. I believe it is oil-free. Good buildable coverage, stays matte, and doesn't oxidize. Easy and quick application and it is perfect over primer and concealor. I use MAC studio finish concealor(spots/discoloration) as well as Maybelline mineral power liquid concealor(under eyes). I am pleased with this combination, and prefer it over liquid foundation. Excellent coverage for me. Products that I have tried for over a month: I have used MAC stu
  4. I've been wearing foundation for years(with a zit here and there), and when I started using MAC studio fix powder(2-3 months of use), I had the worst break out of my life. Clogged pores, inflamed acne, ugh I was so depressed...I had to see a dermatologist and they put me on some meds and gave me topical stuff. It may be the makeup that is causing your acne. It was in my case :doh:
  5. The best concealor I've used is Stila's Perfecting concealor. It's a cream concealor and I find it very effective compared to powdered form or the kind that comes in a stick. I got it from Sephora. I apply it with Bare Escentual's maximum concealor brush.
  6. I tried both BE and EM. I like the look of both...but my boyfriend thinks that I look healthier with the BE on, maybe because it gives a radiant glow? For those who broke out from the BE, how long did you wear the product until you noticed it bothered your skin? I haven't had the itchy sensation yet, and I really want to stick with the product.
  7. Walgreens is having a buy one get one free deal going on until the 19th. I bought Maybelline's Dream Matte Pressed Powder yesterday, and got a free nailpolish. So far, the colour I got is a good match, and keeps me matte for a few hours. I sometimes use MAC's select spf 15? foundation and top it off with a Lancome powder. If you have troubles matching colours, I would suggest trying a makeup counter at a department store. All 3 brands mentioned have a wide range of makeup for yellow-toned peop

    Oh MY GOD! Cutest avatar ever! EVER!

    Have you watched Ratatouille? Saw it the day it came out :D

    I have the game on XBOX360 and it's very cute. Rattie 'Tocks galore.

  9. Maybe it IS the mineral make up that is clogging your pores. I knew someone who used the Physicians Formula brand and it caused her to get those white heads around her mouth/cheek area. Traditional powder makeup works well for her, though.
  10. You can have your hair look different from day to day. You don't have to do something dramatic like cutting or coloring. You can use different styling products and part your hair in different areas.
  11. I don't like the colorstay in the bottle. I like the ones that come in the squeeze tubes. The 'Active Light' ones.

    Hyde is a girl, lol. I named her Hyde because when I first brought her home, I was trying to put her into her new home and she was in my living room. She ran right under the couch and I had such a difficult time trying to get her out. SHe's a sister to my Russian Blue, I got them from a breeder an hour away from my house! I took that picture of her and thuoght she was the most photogenic t

    OMG! Cute picture. My Hyde looks like your ratty. I'll change my avatar to Hyde. :D

  14. I am starting to use my sample of B&B everyday. It's scary looking in the jar, but its awesome. I think when I purchase a kit, I'll get B&B blush and raw sugar. Or try waffle cone
  15. I use Lancome's 'Le Crayon Khol' in Black Coffee. It's around 21? dollars and it's the creamiest, softest eye pencil ever! It may be pricey, but it'll last a while. It's my absolute HG eye pencil. Rimmel also makes good eye pencils.
  16. Thank you!! I said the exact same thing in my first post. This is basically why I made this thread. This shit keeps happening to me. People cut in a front of me, then drive in slow fucking motion! What the fuck is wrong with you people? If you are in such a fucking rush that you had to cut someone off, at least keep up to speed, you moron! Jesus fucking Christ, that really grinds my gears! Sometimes, I don't even mid it if they cut me off, as long as they drive fast after they cut me off, you kn
  17. You know what really grinds my gears? - When I'm in class and people come in with smelly food during a lecture. The smell makes me naseous? and I feel like puking because I smell onions and BBQ wings. GROSS. - When I'm driving to school and someone pulls out in front of me and drive extremely slow. Most of the time this is on a one lane road, so I can't make a pass. It really pisses me off. In fact, this happened yesterday and I looked at the driver in front of me, and she was eating and sippi
  18. Is anyone participating in the EM contest? I think I might do it....
  19. Thanks for the suggestions! I'm really happy with my EM. I used to not be able to tell the difference between matte and intensive, but I can now, LOL. YAAAAAAAY! HG!
  20. Nick Nack is pinky-brown and matte. I keep wavering on whether or not I like it. Sometimes I think it's too brown for me. I'll try it out with my next order. I want to try more foundation formulas before i commit to full sizes. Thanks for the suggestion.
  21. What are some really nice, MATTE peachy-brown blushes? I already have so many nice shimmery blushes, and I'm wanting a matte one. I have Apple but it's too pink for my liking. Any suggestions? Thanks.
  22. Good lord the intensive colors are darker than the matte formulas. But, I think I have found my match. Medium Golden in matte I've been wearing it for almost a week.
