Thanks for the welcome,
I've always been such a make-up snob, only wearing department store brands, but I've been experiementing with cheaper brands and for some things, I can't tell the difference. My derm recommends Neutrogena Healthy Defense over more expensive brands for sensitive skin SPF.

tinted moisturizer
Schools startin agen next friday,and im going shopping in a few days to get some new foundation and everythin.I want to try a tinted moisturizer aswell,does anybody know a really good tinted moisturizer that will give my skin a good luck?? or a really good foundation that will cover my skin up all school day because my old foundation use to wear off by school had finished.

i used to use olay foundation for combination skin,and it was quite good but it didnt last.So im looking for something that will last for at least 7/8 hours or so,or i could take the tinted moisturizer into school and put some more on during the day.Anyway im looking for 1 for combination skin,and that isnt too costly.i will have about 15/20 pound to spend on a really good foundation and tinted moisturizer,so if anybody knows any please let me know!


EDIT: my skin is prone to spots,especially on my forehead inbetween my eyebrows ,so i need one that is good coverage aswell!thanks

I like Bobbi Brown's TM. But it doesn's give as much coverage as you'd like to get.
I doubt any TM's gives that much coverage. They normally give a sheer coverage.

I have tried so many different ones and oddly enough--- Neutrogena's Skin Clearing Tinted Moisturizer was my fave! Bobbi Brown is very good too.

I use a Bobbi Brown one. I believe there are two different kinds though: one in a tube and one in a jar. I use the one in the jar, its very creamy for dry skin and gives a naturally flawless look. Personally, I do not advocate wearing foundation to school, it rarely looks natural especially under flourescent lights. A good tinted moisturizer will do you good though

tinted moisturizers don't cover spots very well and sometimes even highlight them by looking shiny...how about using a spot concealer?

With a dusting of fine transluscent powder I've found it's the best combination of being sheer and natural while giving coverage where you need it.

I love Bobbi Brown's spot concealer but it's a bit costly for that measley amount, I'm sure you can find something else...anybody?
