I may have to re-powder in the afternoon, but it's nothing too bad.
    I used to go through hell with this pale thing trying everything from MAC to Prescriptives custom blended shit and I stumbled upon this; try the Covergirl fresh complexion concealer. I used to mix ivory with buff beige. The Buff Beige concealer is really light and works really really really well for me. I've used it for spot application, with a dry sponge, and with a wet sponge and all are great. Also, a super AWESOME cheap powder is NYC pressed in translucent and the loose powder as well. This will not turn orange on you and USE BLOTTING PAPERS!

    I used to use the lightest pressed powder by Almay but the cost is so much more compared to the NYC stuff and it didn't make my skin freak out. It's funny I even use the Covergirl stuff because all their other shit makes my face flip the fuck out.

    I swear by covergirl concealer (the liquid one). I have very fair skin & use Ivory. I have tried others but always come back to it. During summer, when makeup tends to not last long, I use it and then follow it with tinted moisturiser. Winter I follow it with mineral powder foundation (maybelline mineral power).

    God, that is one of my favorite episodes ever.

    I've cut out using any products that are tested on animals. At first I thought that would mean I have to use, like, HIPPIE products, but I don't. Avon, Christian Dior, Clarins, John Frieda, Estee Lauder/Clinique, Crabtree & Evelyn, Revlon....these are all cruelty free. I've given up any standbys from Olay, Cover Girl, Maybelline, L'Oreal/Lancome, Dove....they are big on animal testing.

    Avon cleanser--can't live without. The ANEW skincare line is phenomenal.
    Christian Dior lipstick is perfect.
    Estee Lauder foundation is perfect, too.

    Jojoba oil for makeup removal (and I sometimes leave a little on as an overnight moisturizer).

    Everyday Minerals makeup--much better than Bare Minerals (and I like Bare Minerals, too); I love the "intensive" formulation, and the "matte" one is great, but I can't recommend the "everyday glo" type, which doesn't work well on my skin, so I just don't know whether it's good for others.

    I always have a couple of Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer sticks but am currently really into Neutrogena Soothing Lipsheers instead. The Neutrogena one is less clumpy and sparkly--it looks more like a stain but is moisturizing. Very cool.

    Anything by Zia is good--I found their products after searching endlessly for things that won't irritate my super-sensitive skin. I have used their various face cleansers and moisturizers, as well as body moisturizer. Never a single problem--just good stuff.

    Mane & Tail leave-in conditioner for my wavy hair so it doesn't frizz.

    Love this thread. I'm definitely going to try some of the things on these lists.

    Olive oil for remover is amazing, and my grandma swore it was what made her look so young. (She had very few wrinkles around her eyes.)

    I bought the Merry Hempsters Balm last time I was at the supplement store on your recommendation, and it is my new favorite. Very nice product!

    Lily - which Avon cleanser?

    I need a new cleanser.

    Looks like lots use Cetaphil. I should go back to it. All the dermatologists recommend it.

    I've been using Skin Milk without the scrub. It's gentle but I'm bored with it.
