^I've bought this since Pixiwoo use it a lot, but even though I'm NC15-20 in MAC it doesn't show up at all on my skin. I kinda regret buying it, way too expensive for something that subtle..

I saw it in my store today and it looked really dark! I swatched it on my hand and it did show up quite dark on my NC15-20 skin.
I'm hesitating to buy the Pro Lumière. It's too dark for me in winter but now I already have some colour in my face and shade 20 is perfect. But I already have too many foundations .

I found that creme bronzer to be INCREDIBLY orange on my pale skin.
all chanel foundations are too dark without exception.

I'm very yellow, maybe that's why it works on me? And it only comes in one shade BTW

FINALLY found a decent foundation and concealer that's light enough for my skin.

Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

barneys.com

and Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit

sephora.com

Bobbi brown makes shades so pale that it makes me feel tanned

I just bought another shade of Lasting Silk as I had number 2 and it was very very yellow on me, and actually, bizarrely for me, maybe too pale! I bought number 4 and it's got more pink in it but it's still super pale, which rules. It lasts on my skin, and I mix it with Lancome Eclat Miracle, which gives a beautiful sheen.

On top of this, they do apparently the ONLY bronzer without any orange in it, it's amazing, it gives me a ruddy healthy look that i've never achieved with any other bronzer, and I own the chanel one, which I also find a little too orange on my skin. Armani is my new favourite brand!

And I must try that bobbi brown, their foundation suits my skin tone in the palest shade, just none of the formulas stay on my oily skin. However, my dark circles are calling for that concealer....

^Go for the corrector instead. Putting something very yellow (the concealer) directly on top of dark circles is useless.

i've been having a terrible problem with dark circles lately.

yesterday i went to macy's and bought the clinique all about eyes concealer. when the makeup artist put the concealer on, it didnt really do a fantastic job. she was trying to claim it would look better with foundation underneath.

is this really true? is this true for all concealers?

^ no. it really is just preferance if you want to take your foundation under your eyes. i tend not to as the eye area is delicate and i don't want to overload it with products.

my concealer does the job for me. i use estee lauder double wear concealer in the lightest shade. which is not that light so very pale, pink toned people won't be able to use this. it does cover dark circles wonderfully, lasts for hours and does not cake or crease. if you add a little touch eclat or similar to the darkest corners you get a more luminous, brighter effect.

Jeez no, she was just trying to sell you a bad product.

Generally you need something pinky-toned to counter act the blueish tones and cover up dark circles completely, and since concealers are yellow-toned...well, it's just not going to work as well as a corrector would.
