Re: Acne Scarring.
Dec 15, 2008
Jane Iredale is a great brand... for people who have great skin. I found that it made my acne look 10 times worse because I had to use so much product to get any coverage, made the fine lines in my forehead more pronounced, and did not last past lunch time. I expected MUCH more out of a product that cost $50 a bottle. For foundation. And only foundation. And if you have acne scars like me and want good coverage, you need/prefer more than foundation. I spent over $150 on that brand (and all I got was foundation, powder, and an eye-makeup kit) on the recommendation of an esthetician I went to see and I hated it. I'm not knocking the brand for everyone because as well all know, what works for some won't do diddly for another. My best suggestion is to go to either a department store or Sephora and ask for samples of different products. Not only will this help you really find the one that you want, but you also get to try out different make-ups for FREE! :) You can ask to sample just about anything at a real makeup counter. You obviously can't do this if you're using Covergirl. But even if you can't afford the expensive stuff, treat yourself and go to the department store to get samples. Just cause you can.

I prefer Smashbox's cover-up stick and powder. Their coverstick covers anything on my face and stays put! Yeah, it's not all-natural, organic, mineral makeup... but it works! And when it comes to having the confidence to go out with my husband and feel like I look sexy, it's worth getting the good stuff. I also use Dior spray (airbrush) foundation (also not cheap but I think it works better) just for the base coat to even things out a bit before concealer. Just FYI. :)

Good luck!
