      I just logged off of sephora.com and bought some Lorac Breakthrough Performance Foundation (I hope I’m not disappointed...)and also some Smashbox Primer (Original).

      I love Sephora because I can find everything I need in one place and if you buy their brands (Sephora), it can be quite affordable and I’ve never been disappointed with the Sephora Brand. I do purchase some of my “Fake-up” from Walgreens...Mainly Nutrogena Products.

      Where do feel most comfortable shopping for your cosmetics?

        • I use mainly gloMinerals or Lancome. I can purchase either online or in a store.
          However I do sometimes get intriqued enough by the marketing to try something from the drugstore.
          I think I posted somewhere that I am a product snob so.....

        • I purchase from my own store, Beauticontrol. We have a full line of cosmetics including the mineral cosmetics, which I love so much—however I recently switched back to the wet/dry foundation because mineral foundations tend to be messy. The wet dry can be applied dry with a makeup brush, or a sponge, and it does have good coverage, but if you need more coverage it can be applied with a damp sponge. I love the mineral lip color and will probably stick with minerals for the rest of my face, and may eventually go back to mineral foundation——(but curse the mess).

          The thing I really did love about minerals is they can be easily mixed—and I do get a light tan in the summer and my foundation color need changes, and it was so easy just to mix a little of the darker foundation in with my usual stuff and voila! I had a new foundation.  

          I can’t wait for summer when I can add some bronzer and get that nice “fake tan“—I use SPF on my face year round so it only gets a little bit of color from the sun—the rest is fake! I have tried so hard to avoid wrinkles, but that sun damage from my early years of constant tanning and smoking really took toll on me—so now I am working on repairing and preventing more.

        • I absolutely love the skin lotions that have a hint of color in them—-just enough to give you that glow, without the orange and the darn streaks.
          I have a friend who got a spray tan at a salon and then the stuff started flaking off, gave her a bunch of white spots, so I don’t recommend it.
          Another trick I have is use the self tanning lotions and mix it with my moisturizer for my body, and apply it. Always exfoliate first, especially elbows, knees, knuckles and heel area, and apply some lotion to these areas too-before using a self tanner, as these areas tend to pick up the most and leave spots in these areas—hope this helps!

        • I have a mixture, I get some from places like Walgreens, CVS, K-mart, those are my little things like lipliners, eyeliners, lipgloss some eyeshadows,eyelashes, but the major stuff like my powders and foundations come from MAC or Fashion Fair. I did however find that the cream matte mousse foundation by Maybelline is awesome and I have been basically using that for the past 4 years.

        • I have combination oily and normal skin, at least I think that’s what I was told.  I’ve tried a lot of products.  I used Proactive Solutions for a couple of years but it really didn’t work for me although it ruined my sheets and towels!  I’m using Mary Kay products now.  Still have occasional acne.  I hate this ... at almost 47 and to still have acne!  It stinks.
