    Why do I get a shiny face?

    It doesn't seem to matter which foundation I use, I always seem to end up a bit shiny. Is it the foundation reacting with my skin, or is it my skincare routine seeping back through my pores? I'm 38 years old, with sensitive combination skin. My skin care routine consists of Nars Hydrating...

    Looking for a dupe for Laze eyeshadow

    Laze came in the 2006 Laze quad and it's a matte pale pink eyeshadow. I've hit the pan big time and am wanting to get a replacement before it totally runs out. I've been looking on the mac site, but it's so difficult to tell from those swatches. Would yoghurt be a good dupe?
