I like both, the soft lip creams sort of remind me of the Kat Von D liquid lips or Lime Crimes but they need to come up with some more colors.

I have Monte Carlo a deep red
Copenhagen deep burgandy
Prague sort of reminds me of Flat out fab but without the greatness factor

But you need to sugar scrub your lips cause if not chile it will show when it dries and use a good balm afterwards or your lips will need rehab.

I'm a "darkie" but I LOVE Laura Mercier smooth finish flawless fluids (espresso) for a nice light weight coverage. I am still trying to decide how I feel about the NARS tinted moisturizer ( which is another light weight coverage option). Both can be found at Sephora.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
NARS, Smashbox and NYX all have great options for tinted moisturizers. If you are a MAC girl my fave (very light weight) foundation is Studio Face and Body Foundation (N9) is super light. During the summer when I really don't want to wear make up and I need a little something, I simply wear MAC Pro long wear concealer ( really light weight).

Since it was buy one get 50% off the second I purchased the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen,Monte Carlo, Transylvania and Prague all for $3.00 (normally $5.99).

I also picked up the NYX Simply Vamp Lip Cream in Enamored and Ahrodisiac ( first one was $6.49 and the second one was $3.24).

I want to say most if not all the NYX products we're buy one get 50% off the second. I had been wanting to try the eyebrow cake ( which was also 50% off the second one) so I bought two different colors. Shipping is free if you spend $50

I absolutely LOVE my BECCA blotting powder perfector. The jury is still out on the Ben Nye Neutral set and I " think that I like" the Palladio oil absorbing rice powder ( it's $4.99 buy one get 50% off the second on Ultra). For me it just really depends on the humidity and what foundation that I am wearing on my face. There is so much out there though.

I like both of the Nyx setting sprays but I think I'll try the UD All Nighter when these run out, which will be a while. I had my makeup done but someone who used it and my face was flawless ALL day, despite being outside in the middle of summer.

As far as the Nyx, I have combination skin so I switch depending on what the day is looking like. In the winter I use the dewy, matte in the summer when my nose slick situation gets serious. It does help but IMO the quality matches the price.

Don't bother with the elf. I used it once and it was aight for hydration, to help an ashy looking finish look less so but didn't do much for actual setting, if that makes sense.

I love the MAC FIX+ spray.

I was a loyal user until I saw something on the Eqyss (The makers of Megatek) website about alternate uses for their products and found out that people were using the Premier Rehydrant Spray that I use as a leave in conditioner as a spray to set their makeup. After that, I have been 100% in love with as a product to set my makeup lol
Here is the document from their website that mentioned that it is used to set makeup and also good to moisturize the face during long flights (like the Evian and the Vichy face sprays):
http://www.valleyvet.com/Library/lib_24237_-Human%20Crossover_Benefits.pdf" rel="nofollow - http://www.valleyvet.com/Library/lib_24237_-Human%20Crossover_Benefits.pdf

I tried the NYX setting spray and it had alcohol in it, I could smell it, it made my skin sting and it also left dots on my makeup and make my makeup look weird on really hot days. I took it back after 2 uses and got a refund.

I like the NYX Angel Veil Primer. I buy it from Trade Secrets/Harmon Beauty/Bed Bath Beyond with those double coupons that they always mail everyone:

Im not sure about the pore part, I saw it in a magazine ad and told my aunt about it and she has oily skin and likes it.

HTH

I just use the monistat chaffing gel when im being cheap and sick of buying the smashbox one or Loreal perfecting base primer. Neither do I use much since I rarely wear foundation.

I mostly use my pressed powder and leave the house or studio fix.

Nyx's "Hero" is a dupe for MAC's So Scarlett and Lime Crimes "Wicked" is a matte dupe for "Hero" and "So Scarlett".

I found this out when I was carrying all three in my make up bag to work.

"Salem" gives me black girl dead lips but I love it.

I have "All Nighter" but I find it don't do anything for me. My nose still turns into a mirror after 2 hours and the pores in my cheeks are like "look at us! We're totally here and truly outrageous!"
