I’d like to post polls once a week as my blog – I want to hear you thoughts and learn a bit more about who’s reading.

This week’s question is:

What kind of foundation to you use?

I love ID Bare Escentuals mineral foundation, but I also use Smashbox Halo, which is a hydrating mineral foundation. It’s good for my thirsty winter skin 🙂

Your turn!

    I keep coming back to Prescriptives. I have strayed from it over the years because it is expensive but in the end it is my favorite. I hate trying to match the shades available in the stores to my skin.

    I am a MAC girl through and through – been using their stuff for eons now… i stick with them. I don’t use the cakey kind – just the straight up liquid in the little glass bottle (NW20 for my pale ass). Goes on so nice and light and smooth – I used to use make up wedges and whatnot to apply it but now I just use my fingers. I found that wastes it the least that way! The stuff is a little pricey but lasts a good 3 months or so for me I’d say.

    Ok, don’t laugh at me. Well ok, you can…I use Smashbox something or other that is green…because it makes my red spots less red…then I use NARS foundation…I think…I can’t remember. If that’s not what it is, I’ll let you know. I love both…I am not a big make up fan but for my wedding I wanted to look nicer than my usual “made up” look…not too gloppy, not too light.

    I am crap and don’t use a foundation. (I HAVE a Clinique Superfit that was the right shade when I bought it but now is not.)

    I use a tinted moisturizer, whatever strikes my fancy at the time. Right now I’m using one from Origins — http://www.origins.com/templates/products/sp_nonshaded.tmpl?CATEGORY_ID=CATEGORY5801&PRODUCT_ID=PROD6014. It’s not great. I also have one from Smashbox that I like better but it’s a little overpriced — http://www.smashbox.com/SHEER-FOCUS-TINTED-MOISTURIZER. Umm… I’ve used Almay SmartShade, which didn’t cover me as much as I’d hoped but it was OK, and the Cover Girl tinted moisturizer was OK, too. (I can’t find the damn thing online. Boo!)

    On top of any of those, I’m using the Almay Mineral Powder but it’s not my favorite, and I’ve been using the Mineral Veil too. (Both of them dry my skin a bit, and I’m DROOLING over that Smashbox Halo, for serious. It HURTS. That’s part of why I asked you about Ulta earlier.) 🙂

    OK. I have talked enough. 🙂

    I use Teint Innocnce by Chanel. I LOVE this foundation and I find it difficult to find a foundation that actually matches my skin tone (very very pale) without making me look like a complete ghost or have nasty lines.

    Full coverage but feels light on.
