I use Mac studio fix mostly and at night I use Urban Decay surreal skin, it's heavy but it's great if you want your skin flawless and to stay that way all night.

I use Revlon Colorstay, over Rimmel primer. I put the colorstay on with a brush, then blot all over with a paper towel...helps it not to come off when I sweat.

I love colorstay, I used that a few years ago. It does stay on without rubbing off, but after a month my skin started to get really dry so I had to stop using it.

I think I rather get a dermabrasion before I would spend 120 on foundtion. Great skin comes from the inside.

I have acne-prone, extremely pale skin with mild rosacea. I'm combination with oily and dry areas and some ice pick type scars on my nose, cheeks, and chin, and I am really sensitive. I've been experimenting with a lot of different foundations trying to find one that will work for me. So far my favorite is Lancome Teint Miracle. I love the finish - it is satin finish, halfway between dewy and matte, so it looks very natural. The coverage can be light or moderate if you build it up a bit. It makes me glowy, but not glittery or sparkly. I like the packaging, it comes in a pump and one pump is enough for a thin layer over my entire face and a little extra for my problem areas. It is not perfect - the lightest shade (Ivoire 1N - can't get this shade at Sephora, you must visit a Lancome counter) is just a hair too dark for me once it is dried, but if I am careful when I blend it, it works. It tends to break up a little on my nose and cheeks by midday, but it is nowhere near as bad as most brands I tried. I get the best results if I use a foundation brush - I use the Sephora Pro #56 and it was worth every penny, but I have been able to get pretty good results applying with my fingers. I use MAC blot powder to set it, which I actually like better than any other powder I have ever used, but I wish it wasn't quite so efficient at mattifying.

I have been looking at this brand but have no idea about the color. Our Sephora doesn't carry it--at least I don't think it does. Do you get yours online?

My last foundation was Josie Maran and I did like it, but I still like to try new ones.

I get mine from Neiman Marcus. I usually order online.
