    Lisi Cosmetics

    Just thought I'd give my women of color another option for foundations. Apparently Lisi Cosmetics had a freestanding store here in Manhattan, but decided to close it down earlier this year. It's now the ELF store. Anyway, I discovered Lisi Cosmetics foundation at the Cosmetics Market on 37th...

    I don't know if it's my camera or the lighting in my house or what, but I have a hard time sticking with a foundation. It will look great on my skin and match my neck and face perfectly in real life, even out in natural light, but when I take pics, say when I have done my full face and just...

    Hey all. I just got back from Mexico and this usually NC50 is dark dark dark. I normally try to stay out of the sun because my skin tends to get splotchy and uneven when I get tan. And of course now it's splotchy and uneven. Does any one have any recommends on a really really light...

    My first FOTD aka I finally figured out how to blend!

    Be gentle. I've been having SUCH a hard time trying to figure out how to apply e/s that most days I usually just go out without any on. My biggest fear is to leave the house looking a hot mess!

    Neutral Every Day Shadows for Work

    Hey everyone! I need some great neutral shadows to wear to work, preferably colors that already come packaged together in a palette. I realize for the most part that leaves MAC shadows out, but I'm open to new things. Nothing too glittery. I'm an NC50 for reference. Thanks!

    Pressed Powder for an NC50 gal...

    Hey all! I am an NC50 in SF Fluid and currently have the Pressed Powder in Dark. I'm thinking about exchanging it for the Deep Dark. Because the SF Fluid already dries to a somewhat matte finish, I'm afraid the Dark powder will make me look chalky and washed out. Will Deep Dark be too dark...

    I'll be in Cabo at the end of August and I was thinking about hitting up the MAC store thinking the products would be cheaper there than that would be in the US with the whole dollar conversion and all. Am I totally wrong? Should I not even bother? Or should I make the effort to find the MAC...
