    It comes in 3 colours so you just chooses the colour closest to your natural one.
    Where did you buy it? I can't find it in the shade I need anywhere.

    I bought Burt's Bees moisturizer with clary sage after finding out my Dior Pro Youth cream was on back order. I figured I'd use it for a week or two until the Dior came in. I liked it so much that I didn't order the Dior right away. After a month or so, my loving but critical mother commented on how good my skin looked.

    After that bottle was done, I went back to Dior. It only took a few weeks to see that it didn't do all of the same things as the Burt's Bees. The stuff is awesome and it's only $18.

    What? You don't have the Guerlain Orchidee moisturizer for $450 like K-Ass? I just saw it on Pixiwoo, the makeup reviewer on YT. she had gotten a sample and tried it. Said it was good. Ha, better be.

    I read the Burt's Bees eye cream was very good for the same price. I've never bought anything by Burt's Bees.

    My rec is Born this Way foundation by Too Faced. I had a sample and loved it, just bought it. I'd call it full coverage but buildable. It's creamy and has many colors. It knocked out the pink on the sides of my nose and chin. I have dry skin. This foundation felt great on my skin and stayed all freakin' day.

    My other rec is Charlotte Tilbury's The Retoucher. It's a concealer and it really covered my under eye circles. Very creamy and it's a brightener too. I hate all products, lol, but even I saw my under eyes looking brighter
    and rested.



    When my eyes are really bad from lack of sleep I'll use the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye but you have to spend a minute or two blending it in. Very sticky and creamy. It takes time but it's worth it and doesn't seem to crease.

    I'm just discovering Charlotte Tilbury's products, after requesting that one of the local female news reporters that I'm FB friends with share what shade she wears. She was gracious enough to do so and I ordered a lip gloss - 4 samples are included with the purchase and shipping is free. Can't wait to get it. Anyone else use her stuff?

    I really struggle to buy foundation that is my shade (pale with a hint of pink), but I bought a new "cheapy" (4?) foundation from Superdrug - its called Ivory flush, and amazingly enough is quite perfect!

    I also got some colour correcting stuff that I have never used before, which I tried out, and worked surprisingly enough.






    I struggle with rosasia, sensitivity, etc. MUA brand is cheap (I don't wear it very often so end up throwing most of it away),doesn't make me want to claw the skin of my face (unlike some hypo-allergenic brands I can mention) and has some great colours.
    Cannot recommend it highly enough as a brand.

    ^^I have a niece who went to cosmetology school, and is a licensed aesthitician (?sp). She raves about all the MUA products.

    Ooooh! thats good to know.
    I also have their pro-skin 3 colour cream foundation and various eye-shadow pallets - my only criticism of those would be that they are too frosted for me, but they have some great colours.

    A lot of it is vastly overrated but very cleverly marketed. I do like the retoucher pen Chalet mentioned and love the Light Wonder foundation.

    Thanks - it's pretty pricey on eBay. Samples of foundation are going for upwards of $10.

    Benefit erase paste. It was about $30.00 for a teeny little pot but a little goes a looooong way and really helps cover dark underye circles.

    Just because people like the visual here is a pic of the one I have been using.

    Thank you for sharing! I need something like this.

    I've used Benefit for YEARS (back before there were any Sephoras near me, you had to buy it in a Macy's) and a lot of their stuff has weird names. I think that's just their thing. I used to use an awesome concealer (since made obsolete with all the new stuff out) called Bo-ing. No idea what that was in reference too. My eyes certainly weren't boing-y after use.

    That's actually the first time I've heard a negative review of hers, which I appreciate. I've watched a YTer called Wayne Goss for a few years (a British makeup artist, like Tillsbury) and he RAVES about her stuff. I've wanted to try her stuff for a while but I think it's only recently been available in the US. Now I can move on to Tom Ford eye shadows. I have a serious makeup addiction.

    New things that have achieved holy grail status:

    The beauty blender. I resisted the hype on this because I've used brushes forever for foundation and concealer but two weeks ago I caved and bought this. It's amazing!. I ran and bought the little one this week for undereye.

    Benefit Gimme Brow. It's fast, and makes brows look super polished. Teeny tiny spoolie brush makes no messes, has fibers to fill.

    La Roche Posay Active C. I wasnt really using anti oxidents regularly so i added this in to my alternating retin a, glycolic, salicylic arsenal. My skin is really responding well so far.
