One that wont cost $30 or more, and wont leave me glittering like a teenager. I used to use l'Oreal's Translucide, loved it, and of course, it got discontinued.

    I would try the Ask Phoenix thread for advice. She's a makeup artist.

    why not buy a luminizer instead and add a drop to foundation?

    they can be used as separate highlighters where you need them.

    Benefit High Beam or Moon Beam are good ones.

    Rouquinne, that is what I have been doing. The problem is, I cannot find a foundation that I love.

    i know what you mean - i seem to be in between colours in MAC foundations these days (and they no longer make the colour i wear in the formulation i like) and i'm tired of spending $30+ for the stuff.

    fortunately, a small Canadian company called Marcelle makes the most perfect shade for me and it's only $15 - often on sale at 20% off.

    :D

    I think she said on the Ask Phoenix thread she's looking for the new one but it doesn't come in her color in the US.

    I use Natural Light from Skinn cosmetics. It's not cheap, but it's not overly priced either. You can get it from their online store for $24. It's SUPER light weight. I use their cleansers, creams, and serums...their entire line is amazing. Their new Plasma foundations and concealers are excellent too.

    Yea, I am mad at L'Oreal! they say the lighter shades dont sell in the US but they sell in the UK (WTF??) but in all their other foundations, in the US, they offer cool shade (not warm or neutral) in levels 1 and 2. I recently purchased Oriental Gold BB cream from Skin79, and I like that at least for now. It is really weird; it goes on thick, and I thought OMG, this is going to be like petroleum Jelly on my face; but my skin absorbed it, not oily at all. Nice finish, with loose powder. I may convert!
