  1. I'll cast another vote for the L'Oreal Bare Naturale. It's not so pure as the mineral makeups you'll find online--the ingredient list is still full of things I couldn't pronounce for money--but it gives pretty phenomenal coverage, and has yet to break me out any that I can tell. I would agree with Sharpy, though, the brush/packaging in general is pretty worthless. I think it runs about $14, which, while still kind of steep for a drug store foundation, is at least cheaper than what you're using n
  2. Prescriptives makes some nice ones. I've got the one in Mulberry--looks super dark in the tube, but goes on sheer.
  3. Bukowski, anyone? He's a sympathizer, though. The only author I've found to talk candidly about having had severe acne. Read Ham on Rye next time you're after a little commiseration.
  4. I couldn't say for sure. My aunt used to have the same problem--most makeup, lipstick even, would shift color on her throughout the day, and go a bit orange. She always thought it was something to do with her skin pH being off. Maybe there's something to that?
  5. That's what I use! I used Colorstay while on accutane, cleared up some, and now I'm stuck on Pure makeup. I might be an anomaly, but it really works for me. It's a bit sheer, but so light that you could concievably put on multiple layers without it feeling caked on. And cheeeeaaap. Like, five bucks, which is invaluable to those living in college-induced penury (i.e., ME). Oh, but word of warning--skip the Pure concealor. I tried it (call it OCD, I like my products to match!) and, it's pretty sh
  6. Agreed. This past August, I moved 930-odd miles away for college. To understate things dramatically, adjusting's been tricky. It isn't even a matter of not "putting myself out there"--I'm shy, but I'm passable at not seeming so. And I've got acquaintances, but, I don't know, I guess at this stage, that's all they can be. Acquaintances. When I could really use a friend. C'est la vie. Or so they say. On the flip side, I've become remarkably well read...? But you can only take so much of being
  7. Ohhh, I'm so addicted to those things. Cashew cookie? Pretty much food of the gods.
  8. Oh, I wish I could. No matter how hard I try, even if I manage to fall asleep on my back, I always wake up curled up on my side with my face smashed into my pillow. I don't know, my dad's always slept on his back--he lies like a plank and hugs a pillow to his chest. Maybe if you hold onto something that, like, impairs movement? That sounds awfully uncomfortable.
  9. I love Beirut. I imagine it's the closest I'll ever come to being a gypsy...but, we'll see. There could be caravans in my future. I think (I think), though, that I'm going to have to throw my vote in for Elephant Gun. Oh, and good luck with finals...it's the same deal on this end. Unfortunately.
  10. Hmm, well, so far as face wash and moisturizers and the like are concerned, I guess I've just got a few staples I stick to. The MicroDelivery Peel was terrific, but Olay's got something that approximates it pretty well, for about $15 cheaper. And if you're ever in the market for an eye cream, Hope in a Tube is really, really nice. Oh, and I've actually bought regular sizes of their Amazing Grace perfume, and The Present Primer. Both get thumbs up.
  11. Depending on how much coverage you're after, maybe Maybelline's Pure liquid makeup? It's a little on the sheer side, so you might opt for a concealor to go along with it (but, not the matching one, it's pretty much completely worthless). It performs really well for the price (like, $4.99, I think?), gives a matte finish, supposedly non-comedogenic, etc., etc. Hope you find something you like!
  12. Haha, yeah, me too. Which is unfortunate, since I definitely don't have the funds for that kind of addiction... Somehow, I always end up with a slew of Philosophy samples. I swear, I put them in a drawer and they reproduce. Purity takes getting used to, and Hope in a Jar smells downright rank. But, hey, I've liked everything else of theirs I've ever pilfered from my mom, so, go for it!
  13. Absolutely clear-skinned boys can like girls with acne. Happens all the time. Besides, hopefully your second course of Accutane will have you cleared up and glowing in no time! Anyway, from what you've described, he certainly seems to fancy you. And, while it's totally understandable that you might doubt your perception of the situation, or want to steel yourself against rejection, make sure not to let trepidation keep you from action or being open to new developments. (Oh, and for the record,
  14. I tried the organic body lotion in Macy's the other day, it smells DIVINE. (It's also now officially on my Christmas list .) But, that's really the only product I've had any experience with.
