    Why not just get a concealer then? I haven't heard of a full-coverage foundation that doesn't look cakey or obvious.

    I do have a concealer, though. But I prefer foundations with good coverage.

    there are lots on the market that don't look cakey. estee lauder double wear or double wear maximum cover are two really good ones, i can vouch they don't look too mask like.

    I've had double wear before, and yes, it's pretty good. Maybe I should go for it again. Thinking about trying out Pro Lumiere as well.

    Definitely Double Wear! I use the Light Wear one and it's really versatile - if I want more coverage I simply put more on. Great staying power

    bourjois healthy mix foundation. for more concealing, apply with your fingers rather than a brush.

    Has anyone tried Revlon ColorStay Mineral Mousse foundation?

    I'm thinking about purchasing it next week and was curious if anyone here uses it. I can't seem to find many reviews of it.

    I personally do not know of any red lipstick with gold particles in it... But you could try a matte deep red lipstick (such as Chanel Rouge Coco in Rivoli) and add some sort of pigment on top.

    And you could try and ask in both the "How do I get this look thread"
    http://forums.thefashionspot.com/f47/how-do-i-get-look-thread-2-a-100825-12.html
    and the "Lips thread"

    Totally agree!!
    I use the serum version though

    I used to buy only high-tech and expensive foundations but some weeks ago I tried this and I fell in love!!

    It's just magic, I still don't understand how a 11 euros foundation can give you HD proof skin like this...

    And the serum inside the foundation really works: after a week or so of use I noticed that my skin looked really brighter and healthier without make-up (and I didn't change my skincare routine)

    Also, yesterday I saw this video on the MAC Facebook page for application of foundation with fingers and I found it quite an innovative system:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KoHDmQ3uk8g

    I tried it this morning and it's amazing!! It looks like the foundation is airbrushed (an effect that I achieved only with the MAC 187 brush before)

    I think it's really a good way of applying liquid foundation so I wanted to share it with you :smile:

    ^Thanks for posting that video! I wish we got to see her whole face but aside from that I really liked how she applied her foundation, it looked really natural just like the best version of her skin.
