Finishing Powder--The She Space "Finish It"

Eye Shadow--The She Space (especially Shadows of Doubt, Cynical Fairy, Rocked by Love and Decadent Daydream) as well as Lumiere glitz in Peppermint Patti

Blush--Lumiere blush (especially Dusty Rose) and all-over-color (which I use as a blush) in True Radiance, as well as Alima blush (especially Sahara)

Hoozey, what kind of mascara do you use?

My hg foundation is Lily Lolo. As for everything else, I'm too fickle. My favourite is whatever has most recently come in the mail rotfl.gif

update:

 

Foundation:

- still Meow in Pampered and in Flawless - good coverage and satying power.

- Lumiere in Cashmere (I used all the samples and my f/s is late, I can't wait to get this) - less staying power than meow, but gives a bit better result, it looks more natural on the skin. It also offers good coverage and good staying power. I really like this foundation.

- Silk Naturals - I tried this by accident, and it's really great foundation. It makes your face look poreless. It has layerable coverage, and good satying powder and what is important it's really cheap.

- Aubrey Nicole in full coverage - this is my least favourite foundation, due to the problem with color match, however it's really good product. It has good coverage, good staying power, just all the colors are a bit too yellow.

 

Finishing powder:

- Silk Naturals - their dait bait and perfecting powder is just wonderful. If you want to look perfect, poreless you need to try this.

- Milan minerals - perfecting powder, it's not as good as silk narturals, but still good, I only don't like the way it smells, while it smells as a regular powder not mineral.

- meow cat glow - I like this powder but don't use it, while it's not as good as perfecting powder from silk naturals, however this is really good finishing powder.

- meow setting powder. I use it on my foundation before perfecting powder. This is really good product, a tiny bit of this powder extends staying power of any foundation.

 

Primer:

- I use Meow oily skin primer, but in my opinion it doesn't work, maybe it worked at the begining, now I use it only because I have it. I won't buy this again.

 

Usually I do not use mineral primers - I use Smashbox, Laura Geller, Mac and UDPP as eye primer. I also like millan gelle drops.

 

Bronzer:

 

- meow - firefly bronzers - I just love them, you will never find better bronzers. I love the whole collection. You may use it as a blush, and if you put it on the entire face, it makes you look more suntanned but and gives you subtle glow. However it never looks orange or fake. I simply love this product.

 

Eyeshadows:

I love She Space and mad minerals, however I buy pigmnets everywhere I'm just pigment maniac.

Does no one like Pure Luxe? So far I've liked everything I've ever tried from them. Their foundation stays on all day, and if you need to mix colors to get your perfect shade, she will custom mix it for you at no charge. Her What Red? is great, as is her yellow corrector. I love their powdered erasers (cream erasers, not so much). Her blushers are so pretty. I love their April's Mix and Radiance and she's got some beautiful eyeshadows that stay on all day, as long as I use a primer. Her lippies I don't particularly care for though.

Everyday Minerals is my HG at the moment. It gives me a flawless finish and excellent coverage. I love their blushes too!

 

For finishing powder though, BE's Mineral Veil is amazing. I love it, it truly gives me an airbrushed look. (:

I'm still a MMU newbie, but so far I love EDM Matte foundation in Sunkissed Fair. I'm not sure if it's my HG yet, because I haven't tried any other brands. I hope it is, though, because EDM's prices are beyond reasonable, their selection is great, and their customer service is WONDERFUL!

Geez, seeing all these replies just makes me feel overwhelmed! There are so many MMU companies out there, it's a bit intimidating...

 

Even with my limited experience with MMU's, I think I've found a few that I really love:

 

Primer: Fyrinnae's rice powder primer

Foundation: Laura Mercier in Real Sand

Concealer: BE's Well Rested & bisque

The original glo didn't work out. I've gone back to Valerie. It doesn't break out my skin and gives me great coverage. That is what I've been using lately.

 

Favorites right now:

Valerie

Lumiere

Meow

UPDATE: Back in October I indicated I had given up on Pure Luxe because it wasn't quite sitting right on my face, and I was enjoying Ocean Mist. However when the samples ran out (along with my money from trying to find a color match from any number of companies) I decided to finish off the Pure Luxe I had. Wow, am I glad I did! Thought I would mix Creamy Natural with some Buff that I had (since Creamy Natural always seemed a bit too light and yellow on me). Tried various mix ratios only to conclude that Buff is actually a perfect match for me (at this time). Also, by letting my moisturizer soak in a bit longer than I had been and using a new powder brush, I found the Pure Luxe sits beautifully and holds up much better than it has in the past. Amazing what a difference correct application can make!

 

Anyway...Pure Luxe foundation...it was the first MMU I used and I think I'll be sticking with it!

Wow. This sounds like me. I had taken a break from using Pure Luxe foundation for about 6 months because I went on a sampling phase for a short bit. I came back to my Pure Luxe this past week because I saw a photo myself from early 2007 when I wore PL foudation. My skin looked radiant and perfect. You couldn't tell I was wearing any foundation even after hours in the heat and sun. I think I'm going to stick with PL for now. I guess it takes some wandering around and trying new things to realise that my HG was right under my nose.

 

BTW, I use a mixture of Creamy Natural and Buff. Perfect.

Lumiere's Cashmere and FF in Light Medium Beige, plus Spiced Apple and Fresh Roses for blushes, and Sahara and Ambrosia for bronzers. My fallback eyeshadow combo when I'm lazy is Lumi's Golden Plum, Wild Orchid, and Merlot as a liner. Oooh - and she's added Halo to the permanent collection of e/s's - it was supposed to be L/E for the Seasons Gleaming kit, but everybody loved it too much (including me). Fantastic highlight colour. Also love her dropper bottles of emu oil and the healing concealer (very useful if you have a cat who uses your leg to climb up onto the sofa - it does heal, has lots of anti-bacterial goodies in it, so it's not just for your face).

 

Silk Naturals' Datebait for finishing powder (can't live without it, gives a healthy touch of colour but not exactly a glow, and it's a great finisher), Climax blush, all her cool-toned lippies (first ones I've been able to wear, they're great), and many, many of her eyeshadows. Great customer service, and orders come in lovely little organza bags. She has great synthetic brushes from Forever Female, too.

 

The She Space is eyeshadow Mecca, no doubt about that. No matter what colour it is, Heather does it perfectly. Free goodies and nice notes come in packages, too.

 

MAD Minerals has some really great eyeshadows, too.

 

Sarafina for skincare, because it's wonderful (HGs are the Cleansing Milk, the ph Balancing Toner, Green Tea Eyegel, and the Lavender Hydrosol, the other stuff is great too, can't wait to try their shampoo), Bill's really nice and he keeps sending me very nice size samples of something new and terrific along with orders, and discount coupons for my next order all the time. Which is good cos there always is a next order.

 

Woodwize for their amazing dry-skin and eczema clearing-up hempseed oil and shea butter soap and body creams at prices you can't beat!

 

There are other terrific companies out there, but if I didn't limit myself, I'd be even more broke from makeup than I am now!

    • Yes, it is quite good. Why do you ask this?
    • But what if she CAN'T afford experimenting with different products? That might really make the situation worse and harm her hair even more... Same with home remedies. If your really want to change your hairstyle then hair extension is a good option because you won't damage your hair and scalp. You can actually lookup the tutorials on the web, but videos on Youtube are more descriptive.
    • Hi, I'm moving to the UK shortly from London. Are there any British skincare/makeup brands that are difficult to obtain there? I might need to stock up before leaving! J
    • A man goes to the doctor, concerned about his wife’s hearing. The doctor says, “Stand behind her and say something and tell me how close you are when she hears you.” The man goes home, sees his wife in the kitchen, cutting carrots on the countertop. About 15 feet away he says, “Honey, what’s for dinner?” Nothing. He gets halfway to her and repeats the same question. Nothing. Very concerned, he gets right behind her and asks again “What’s for dinner?” She turns around and says “For the THIRD time, beef stew!”
    • There are a variety of benefits for Orange Essential Oil. I am mentioning some of them: 1. It lifts your mood up and reduce the stress 2. It treats skin conditions like acne 3. It helps with Upset Stomach 4. Can be used as a flavor in food and beverages
