Thanks guys. It is a comfort knowing that I'm not the only one out there, but I'm sorry you guys are going through the same thing, it's not very nice
It was a pink shade!
First time: Nars, some kind of dark grey, slightly sparkly colour
Second time: Bobbi Brown, Rose Gold
Third time: Clinique, Apricot, a shimmery shade.
So, if I try putting a base on, and then some powder, it might prevent it? I'll definitely give it a try
Cortisone cream - I'd be interested in knowing more about it - your experience of it, what it does and what the side effects are...
I got what sounds like some good advice from the herbalist when I went to get some cream to try and help the dryness/itching. The lady behind the counter suggested making sure I was drinking lots of water (I know I don't drink nearly enough) and making sure I was getting enough fatty acids in my diet (which I also know I'm not getting enough of - all the work I've been doing over the past year and my diet has suffered). Anyway, I'm back taking Starflower Oil as of yesterday. I took it for good few months some years ago, and people commented on my amazing skin - it made a huge difference to it.
Here's hoping this goes away, for you guys too...
