all the stila bb creams are too light....unless I try the bronzer bb cream, I used to use drugstore bronzer as foundation until I found out about mac and the costly make up.

I might try the smashbox bb, but I don't trust "mediums" in colors, they be sketch.

I think my undertone is too yellow which is why nothing works for me.

WurlyLox, did we discuss your seborrheic dermatitis before? How do you manage it? I have it too.

And it may be/have, but whatever it is, it greatly improved with their shampoo and the regular Theracream. So, I tried the face version, fully expecting it to be too heavy and greasy, but was pleasantly surprised. It isn't oily or greasy at all, even on my still quite oily T-zone.

Even with me alternating strong SkinMedica Tri-Retinol ES with MUAC's Gly-Luronic Serum, as long as I lightly apply this over whichever of those I'm using each night, I've had very little problem, even in cold weather. I have recently been having a problem with a little patch right in front of one of my ears and on my ears that's taking the regular Theracream to keep under control, so I'm still wondering if that and my scalp isn't psoriasis, the way it looks and behaves.

Anyway the face cream is all natural, healing ingredients that totally agrees with my sensitive roseacean facial skin and its SD:

PRODUCT INGREDIENTS:purified water, organic aloe barbadensis leaf juice, urea, organic cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, emulsifying wax (plant source), vegetable stearic acid, persea gratissima (avocado) oil, cetyl alcohol (plant source), potassium sorbate (plant source), phenoxyethanol (plant source), caprylyl glycol (plant source), tocopherol (natural vitamin E), organic matricaria recutita (chamomile) flower extract, organic calendula officinalis flower extract, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate (vitamin ester-C), sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), citric acid (from citrus fruit).

For years, I used prescription Wescort cortisone cream, and it worked OK, however, my idiot dermatologist at the time just kept prescribing it without telling me that regular use would cause my skin to thin. As a result, I have a lot of broken capillaries in the areas where the SD was the worst. Still, used only when you have a flare-up, it might be an alternative for you. After that, my next dermatologist prescribed Xologel, but I couldn't tell it did much at all, and it just sat on top of my skin so that it kind of pilled up when applying make-up if I wasn't very careful. So, overall, I don't recommend it if someone should try to prescribe it for you.

Between that and the A2H cream, I just sort of put up with the SD. Lightly dabbing on vitamin E oil/gel and/or FOTE aloe gel helped some. The aloe gel especially helped sooth around the base of my nose where it was most prone to flake and even crack a little in winter. I usually only used the vitamine E at night since I often could only find oil.

Thru it all, I've learned that I really need to avoid talc in powders, although it never bothered me much in blush, I guess because the areas I tend to use it aren't the worst areas for my SD. Cream-to-powder foundations all - and I tried many before I realized the correlation - almost always made it flare up, too, the worst being Mary Kay's, back when I used to sell the stuff. Otherwise, I liked theirs the best, LOL! - don't even know if they still make it.

Probably a lot more than you ever wanted to know, LOL, but I hope something here helps!

That's great info. Thanks! I haven't noticed any correlation between my makeup and any flare-ups. But I'm not good at that sort of thing. I should keep a journal. Unf., my SD is front and center of my face, where my laugh lines are. So when I get a flareup it's very apparent. I have to wear something to cover the hyper-pigmentation. I'd love to be able to go without makeup one day.

I probably should have mentioned originally that I'm not wearing the Smashbox tinted moisturizer in that picture and I ended up tossing it because it broke me out hard core. Booo. It was the first great color match I ever came across

I NEED the MAC Conceal and Correct Palette. OMG. I NEED IT.

The MUFE camouflage palette is crap. It's like colored thickened water. TNB, remember when I asked you if I could get better coverage with a brush than my fingers, well, not with the MUFE. It's really not creamy or pigmented. I wonder if they changed the formula because so many people rave about it.
^^I was terribly disappointed with the MUFE too.

I contour with the darkest colour. Although I like my sleek contour kit. As soon as the sucker is in stock I'm on it like a hawk!!!

I'm depressed, or the opposite of impressed.


HOW BORING.
They didn't even make new lippies they're the same with new names.

It does not have the correcting colors that MAC palette has, though. Just a thought.

Graftobian - HiDef Glamour Palette Neutral#3 - MakeUpMania

Also, if you want the MAC palette, put it in your cart and get it, because they are still accepting backorders whether it shows in stock or not. It say it ships soon; they will ship out your oder and ship the palette when received for no additional charge.

Thanks redlipstick!
What is the consistency of them? Pigmentation?

I do want the MAC palette for the peach/orange corrector. I have dark under-eye circles (I blame work). The added bonus for me is the contour colour.

I like the Graftobian palette - it's just the same product as the HD Creme foundation, but in portable palettes with multiple colors. I love how creamy it is, it doesn't feel like anything on the face and a little goes a long way. When I use for foundation I use a wet sponge, squeezed out to apply and buff with a Sonia Kashuk brush (the synthetic one for creamy products) and set with powder (I am oily). I use the darker colors to contour with the Kashuk brush (obvs before powder). I find that creme contour is better for me.

I know. m. effing. UD did not just release the oz palettes right now, when I'm poor.

AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THESE GAMES.
