The Makeup Thread

Here is your semi-regular makeup thread, to discuss all things makeup and makeup adjacent.

Do you have a makeup product you'd recommend? Are you looking for the perfect foundation which has remained frustratingly elusive? Need or want to offer makeup tips? Searching for hypoallergenic products? Want to grouse about how you hate makeup? Want to gush about how you love it?

Whatever you like — have at it!

These Becca products just arrived in the mail yesterday from Ulta, and I'm really excited to try them!

Pretty packaging!

From left to right: Becca's Glow On Trio, Skin Love Weightless Blur Foundation, and Prep & Set Brightening Blur Kit.

As indicated on the packaging, the Glow On Trio is a mini-set that was being offered for $15, and the Blur Kit was only $5 with the purchase of the foundation. So it was a very good deal to try this stuff — and I've been wanting to try more of Becca's line ever since Shaker catvoncat bought me one of the lip glosses from their collaboration with Chrissy Teigen. I also have their Shimmering Skin Perfector in Rose Gold, which I adore, so it was time to try out a few new items from them.

Fingers crossed I will like these as much as the other two items I have! I'll keep you posted.

Anyway! What's up with you?

(As always, I'm not affiliated in any way with any of the companies whose products I mention, nor am I getting anything in exchange for my recommendations. I just like the products!)

Please note, as always, that advice should be not be offered to an individual person unless they solicit it. Further: This thread is open to everyone — women, men, genderqueer folks. People who are makeup experts, and people who are makeup newbies. Also, because there is a lot of racist language used in discussions of makeup, and in makeup names, please be aware to avoid turns of phrase that are alienating to women of color, like "nude" or "flesh tone" when referring to a peachy or beige color. I realize some recommended products may have names that use these words, so please be considerate about content noting for white supremacist (and/or Orientalist) product naming.
