    I need to replace my make-up and I'm just considering a different brand. Would girls who have dark skin advise any particular brands?

    I'm currently using Mac studio fix, which I find really good but the only problem I have with their powder is that it transfers onto paper. I don't find clinque that good.

    I'm considering YSL, I've never tried it. Would anyone recommend it? Does it transfer onto paper? I'm hoping to buy my make-up tomorrow.

    Are there any brands people might suggest?

    Please only respond if you have something sensible to say.
    It is sensible! It's good for your skin and makes you smell oh-so-delicious. :yep::sexface:

    What's this transferring onto paper business? :unsure:

    'Cause personally, I'd recommend you to not rub your face onto it if it bothers you that much. :borat:

    Sleek is targeted specifically for ethnic skin tones, ma sissies have some and they really love it, can be a little dry on first application, but soon 'meshes' with your skin and gives this lovely natural but high coverage, i believe it started in african or Caribbean stores, so it should be perfect if you have skin tones from that group in particular
    I know sleek. I don't like the quality because it doesn't really last the day and it also transfers to paper very easily. I'd sooner stick to Mac but then I'd also prefer a better alternative to Mac

    What do you mean by transfers to paper? Do you mean when you're blotting your face?

    I don't rub my face onto paper, that's just stupid and idiotic.

    When I write on paper my hand smudges everything along the way. Unfortunately I do touch my face a lot, probably without even realising, it's a habit. It transfers onto paper.

    Grow up and stop responding to my thread, you are annoying.
    Now now, there's no need to be racist about things. I will respond to your thread as much as I wish to. :hand:

    I use Clinque and Maybelline- the latter has a wide range of colours and the 24hr stay one is great.

    I also use Clinique Primer to make the make up stay on longer.

    I wrote this thread to specifically look for make-up advice, I've found what I think is best for me. It's not up to you to question why I made that decision, particularly as you couldn't offer anything constructive.

    Unfortunately I've had annoying people annoyingly impose themselves, goodness knows why. Probably attention seeking more than anything else.

    Chill out This is a public forum so anyone can repond to w/e thread they wish, and what lella was saying is actually true. Coal tar soap helps to relieve eczema, acne, dry skin etc.

    Anyway, get a better setting powder? Pressed powder works less effectively than a loose one.
    As far as i'm concerned whether coal is gd for your skin or not was irrelevant in the converstaion because in the context that sandeep or sanpreet said it was meant in a racist way!
