Re: Laura Geller vs Bare Minerals for sensitive skin

In Beauty Banter 1428529785.927

I wear the fair in BE (original loose) and found the LG in porcelain to be too white and powdery looking on my skin, but that really depends on the main colors you get in your individual compact. I felt mine ran light and would have liked a bit more beige in it, but it had the perfect amount of pink. I liked how it applied and I don't mind adding a bit of bronzer or something to warm it up a touch and it covered my redness well, however by the afternoon I could definitely feel the BnB on my face. I have dry skin so it isn't like it's oil coming through and this is the only product I have u... Continue Reading


Re: It TSV....please show color swatches!!!!

If you google It Cosmetics CC Cream Fair you will come up with some bloggers or youtube videos who have done swatches comparing the colors. I know Phyrra and Musings of a Muse (remove the spaces for her site) have done swatches on their blogs and I found a few on youtube from various people as well. Continue Reading


Re: Animal testing

One of my favorite websites to check for this is MyBeautyBunny . com You will find a drop down menu from the top under cruelty free resources that reads Cruelty Free Brands. Scroll down and you will find a few choices to select depending on what you are looking for. There is also a list of companies that sell in China now, and therefore require testing. Korres made that list sometime in the past year I believe. This list is kept current and has lots of big name companies as well as small indie brands. Continue Reading


Re: It Cosmetics CC+ Foundation in the Tube - Colors?

In Beauty Banter 1417290218.76

Hi. I wear the CC cream in fair, and I will warn you that it is very fair. I have pink toned fair skin, no yellow at all. The CC cream does not pull any yellow on me, but I need to use a touch of bronzer with it because it is that fair and makes me look really washed out alone. I believe if you fall into the light category AT ALL then the fair will be too light for you. I wear fair in BE loose and ready and fair in Doll 10 liquid (Doris Dalton) but they don't give me the fuller coverage or finish I'm sometimes looking for, which the CC cream does. Also, I don't have a problem with it go... Continue Reading


Re: it CC?

This is the only product I don't have to wear a primer with. All other liquid, cream or powder foundations I have to wear a primer or it just disappears within a couple hours. The CC cream stays on at least 10 hours. I have dry skin and always wait at least a half hour after I apply my moisturizer to put on any other face products. Continue Reading


Re: Using Up My Creams & Serums!!!!!

In Beauty Banter 1413757675.453

I have just begun doing this as well. I gathered up all my unused/unopened products that came in skin care kits and realized I have more cleanser than I can use in a year's time. I just kept getting these kits because they had a couple products I really liked and the price when you buy in a kit is a great deal. However, when you have more than you can use, I realized the savings aren't there anymore. So I cancelled all my auto deliveries and plan to just buy more products when I actually need them.

I believe this is the color she is referring to http://www.qvc.com/bareMinerals-Original-SPF-15-Foundation.product.A200323.html?sc=A200323-User&cm_sp=VIEWPOSITION-_-6-_-A200323&catentryImage=http://images.qvc.com/is/image/a/23/a200323.001?$uslarge$ I think it just isn't a popular enough shade for them to put it in the kits. I wear fair to fairly medium depending on the time of year also. I have a smaller size now of medium that I just mix with my large fair to make up my own as needed. I don't use enough of the medium shade to justify another large size, so I just get that color w... Continue Reading


Re: Looking for suggestions for natural, cruelty free bath and body

On 10/14/2014 rat2e said: Korres shower gels are the best IMO. They are made from natural ingredients and the scents are natural as well. The other products I have tried are great as well. The shower gel is a must for me. Korres used to my favorite as well, however they lost their cruelty free status this past year. I am now in search for another brand now also. Continue Reading


Re: What is the lightest, whitest liquid foundation?

In Beauty Banter 1411855757.317

Have you checked out Kat Von D at Sephora? Her Lock-It Tattoo foundation goes very light. I wear the Fair in bareMinerals which is lighter than Fairly Light and still has pink undertones, and Kat Von D has colors that are even too light for me! I would definitely check it out. Her line is also cruelty free in case that matters to you. Continue Reading
