Happy birthday to the Tech Guy!

I’m still in on the quest for something that will keep my skin clear FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER . . . OK how about a more realistic goal? I’m on the hunt for a foundation that suits my skin and won’t break me out!

perfect foundation.
i have mufe hd but it just doesnt cut it for me.

AND PERFECT MOISTURIZER.
my skin is so dry and gross by the end of the day ):

have you tried cetaphil? after i started using this moisturizer, i don’t get dry patches anymore and at the end of the day when i wash my face, it is pretty soft.

Have you tried the Nivea? I’ve been using it for a year, I LOVE it. I have the night cream too and i wake up with great, soft skin. give it a try! I got it in Canada, not sure where you’re from and if you have it. It’s called Light Moisturizing Day Care

I’m on the hunt for a foundation that I can’t sweat off, won’t wear off and actually matches my skin color. Under $15.

A concealer that will actually help disguise my acne scars instead of just making them look a little less red than before.

A blush that doesn’t make me look like I got into Mommy’s makeup and a lipstick that doesn’t peel off of my lips. Or at least a blam/moisturizer that will get my lips into good enough condition that I can wear lipstick without it all ending up in the middle of my mouth in clumps peeling off and taking skin with it. Every lipstick I’ve ever worn has done that.

Have you tried a lip primer? You are probably allergic or sensitive to a common ingredient in lipsticks. I used to have the same problem and the only way I could wear lipstick was if I used an Elizabeth Arden Lip Conditioner first(I think that’s what it was called). Fortunately, it seems to have gone away on it’s own but I know exactly what you’re going through. No fun at all!

foundation! i cant find one that i love enough to buy a new bottle. also something for the redness in my cheeks. i would love to wear blush but because of the redness every blush ive tried just makes the redness look even more inflamed

happy birthday Shaun!!!

Oh damn, me too. I’m about 1/3 far on each, I really want to use at least one up – but instead I’m going to go buy another one today. Dianne Brill is pulling out of the market here, they have everything (everything, seriously) on sale for ~9$.

Try using Lush’s “coalface” – it’s supposed to reduce oil & help mattify skin. I bought some for my husband who has EXTREMELY oily skin and there has been a significant difference over these last few weeks. I use it a few times a week and have had no ill effects so it’s gentle enough for sensitive/acne prone skin as well.

I really like Laura Mercier’s matte setting powder in shine control. It worked for me, but I know other people have trouble with it…

I’m on the hunt for the perfect under-eye concealer to hide my dark circles; I’ve tried so many and they all seem to settle into my fine lines and look cakey. 🙁

Happy Birthday Shauntechguy!!

I seem to have the exact same problem! I’ve found my HG combo: Smashbox concealer in the twist tube set with Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil, great coverage and the veil keeps it from settling into fine lines. I really hope this helps!

The perfect everyday natural shimmery eyeshadow. I’m too dark for All that Glitters, or it would be perfect!! Any recommendations? I’m NC43

Yes, I actually have sable 🙂 But it is just a little too purple for me, you know? It’s nice, but I need something more brown. Thank you though 🙂

Try Bare Escentuals eye shadow glimmer in “Summer”. It’s described as “Light bronze sand” and is just beautiful. You can test it at Ulta, Sephora or a B.E. store.

I FOUND IT!! Physician’s Formula Shimmer Brick in Sunset Strip is FANTASTIC. I am SO impressed by this product- I’ve never been this impressed by any makeup before, not even MAC, Makeup For Ever or Nars! I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT! IT IS MY HOLY GRAIL!!!

foundation
moisturizer
mascara
suncreen
facial cleanser and exfoliator
…among other things! i’m never satisfied either, i keep wanting to try even if the product is reasonably good! keeps things interesting i say.

I am still on the quest for the perfect “go to” makeup palette . The coastal scents 88 palette… eh . Willing to try it again w// the 42 double stack palette because the blushes look great. The NAKED palette seem sgood, but a little pricey for me. I want to try the NYX S102 palette but haven’t heard any reviews, so i dunno.

I’m just looking for a good palette that i can use for both day and night, that has colors that look good on my skin (nw45) and is a good price.

until then, THE QUEST CONTINUES !

Foundation
Undereye concealer that won’t settle into my fine lines
A skin-matching e/s (still
Haven’t made it to the Burberry counter to try Trench!)
The perfect pink lipstick

Happy birthday to Shaun!

I’m on the hunt for shu umera lashes. The company has decided to stop selling in the US….that also means no more amazing lash curlers for us 🙁

the ONLY product that is my HG for years now is Mario Badescu’s Sea Emollient Hand Cream. Never found a hand cream to replace it, so far. As for the make-up…no HG, still searching and changing am replacing. =)

I just found what I think will be my HG Moisturizer but I’m still looking for a foundation that is one pale enough for me and doesnt make me yellow or orange and two doesnt breakout my dry sensitive skin.

Happy Birthday Shaun 🙂
