Oh my god, yes. It is amazing, though people seem to either love it or hate it. I got a deluxe sample of it from Sephora last year which made me go out and buy the full sized. I'm sure they will have a code for it again soon.

^^Thanks! I'll have to try it! With your recommendation and my friend's it may be worth the shot. I was using MAC's Zoom Lash, but I found it was too thick near the roots and not elongating enough on the ends so I always felt like I had to apply more than I wanted to, you know? It looked great for night, but for every day it was too much. I'll try the Dior (and I always love going into Sephora anyway!!). Thanks again!

Chanel for subtle eyeshadows.
NARS for lipstick and blush.
MAC for all-around good brushes.

I got my first mascara from Max Factor not long ago, and I love it. They may turn into a new staple for me.

Dior, MAC and a couple of things of Chanel, although I really want to try Givenchy. Is it a good makeup brand?

Okay, thank you! I'm interested in Givenchy's especially for its foundations, because they seem to be pretty pale, and the other brands I've tried are too dark for me.

Yes, I really like Dior glosses. Not only Diorkiss, I also love those ones who come in the special new products, like Dior Gourmette and the new Dice. They make my lips look gorgeous and the colour and shine is very beautiful (and they last).

Anything Scott Barnes and Armani, Laura Mercier for (foundations and loose powders) as well as Bobbi Brown for the (cream blush and gel eyeliners). Oh and how can I forget YSL,
specially the Faux Cils Mascara (my staple).

Haven't tried foundation I don't think ... I've been wearing Prescriptives Custom Blend for awhile now. I'm pretty pale, but my bigger issue is that my skin is very pink, and yellow foundation goes orange on me. Plus, I like the color of my skin & don't want to hide it. Can you get this where you are?

Matching your skintone is def a good reason to try any brand ... have you tried Lancome?

Yes, I've tried the new one, Color Clone, and another one, Color ID, but they were dark too

We don't have that brand you said here, but I'll keep trying more and soon I'll find a one which matches my skin well. I think that YSL Perfect Touch comes in some light shades, so I'll try it one of these days.

Thank you for your help!

Good luck ... I know how frustrating it can be when you are white like me

One thing you might try is to find out which countries have Prescriptives--I know they're an Estee Lauder company, and here Neiman-Marcus and Dillards do custom blending. Once you have a formula, they can continue to make it & mail it to you. If it's in the EU, this seems like something that could work ...

So I just checked their website, and they're in the UK--here's a list of stores: http://www.prescriptives.com/templat...ited%20Kingdom

So maybe you can take a little jaunt to London or Dublin ... even if the store doesn't do custom blend, their off-the-shelf stuff is still better than most everyone else's, especially if your skintone is something other than yellow. Once you know what your color is, you should be able to order it, I would think ...
