    I need more makeup, but I want a change. However, I have super sensitive skin. Any recommendations?

      I used Clinque for a VERY long time but last weekend I got Mac and love it so far.

        For sensitive skin, which mine is sometimes, I like the Colorscience line of mineral makeup.

          Bare Escentuals a.k.a. Bare Minerals. I too have very sensitive skin (can't get facials, can't wear scented facial moisterizer). This is the only makeup that doesn't irritate me, even if I fall asleep in it. Granted I don't wear makeup daily but when I do this stuff is super gentle and looks amazing. They make all sorts of products.

            You skins sounds like mine!! I keep seeing all these things I want to try but I'm so afraid my skin will hate it! Might try some of the suggestions above. Thanks girls!

              i have really sensitive skin too. If the makeup isn't right for me, I'll get ichy red splotches on my face. I decided to give bare minerals a try. i went to a sephora in the mall this morning & had them put it on me. then I went shopping & ate lunch. after all that my skin felt good, so I went back & bought it.

              they said it doesnt photograph well & will my my face look white. So I tried on "make up forever" which is a stage makeup that they said would look good for an outdoor wedding. I liked the look of it, but I didn't bother buying it yet.

                I have pretty sensitive skin too and I'm allergic to some stuff that's usually found in makeup, but I've been using Aveda makeup and it's expensive but it's soooo great. It's all natural so you don't have the gross chemicals and stuff in it that are harsh on your skin.

                  I also use Bare Minerals and love, love, love it! I've been using them for about 2 years I think.

                    The Body Shop or Clinique works really well for sensitive skin. What are you looking for-foundation, eye, lip? The Body Shop lists all ingredients for each product right on the web site or I may be able to send you samples of stuff
                    (I sell TBS on the side). Sephora is great for trying stuff also and all products that have been sugested so far can be found at any of their stores. I used Clinique for many years also and still mix stuff in-their lip colors are the best but don't tell I said that ;0!

                      So I have sensitive/oily/breakout prone skin that's also not as young as it used to be (sun spots, a little scaring, some terrible dark circles and laugh lines).

                      I have been hunting for the right makeup since I got engaged (Feb), and I've tried everything (not really it just feels like it).

                      I'm actually allergic to Bare Minerals (the Bismuth Oxychloride I believe) and get a terrible reaction around my mouth/chin area when I wear it in the sun. But Everyday Minerals (no bismuth oxychloride) drys my skin out terrible and also give me a reaction in that area. Clinique is also too harsh/drying for my skin (yes I really do have oily skin). And most everything else has perfume in it (which I start itching if I just smell the make up).

                      But I went to Nordstrom Labor Day weekend and had a Shiseido makeup session and I have to say I'm loving their foundation. I had their The Makeup Dual Balancing Foundation (SPF 17) for the session and I used that last week with no problems and then this weekend I went back for a sample of their Ultimate Sun Protection Liquid Foundation (SPF 34 or 55) and I've got that on today and I LOVE it even more than the regular foundation (no sunscreen smell!!!).

                      I thought their stuff might be too scented for me (the foundation doesn't really have a smell but some of their other products do), but I have had no problems and my skin feels so good for a change, no rash, no acne, redness is fading. Anyway...

                      Uh, so yeah I'm in love with Shiseido.
