Oooh - I never use M+S because when I'm in the shop I never know what is vegan. On the page it says vegetarian - is there an easy way to find out what is vegan at M+S that I'm missing?

Sometimes it's says there are but if it doesn't you have to email them. They're usually pretty good at replying but it might take a while.

Click on "more details" on the item on the website and it comes up with a box to the side and for the bubble baths it says suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans - their website is pretty good for information on their own range bath stuff/toiletries :)

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good primer?

I have used some in the past (possibly GOSH and/or B), but I've never really observed a notable difference. I'm usually not that fussed (don't regularly wear foundation) but I'm doing the getting married thing, and I don't want my foundation to do the melty oily thing. I've got until next year to figure it out, but thought I'd get a headstart in case I need to try a few different things.

hmm, I do a bit of bridal makeup and I must admit, I've never really found that primers make a helluva difference either, except for adding some extra luminosity or hydrating dry skin.

I know Illamasqua now have a version of the hydra veil for oily/combo skins, but I haven't picked it up yet.

Mainly I would suggest making sure you have the right formulation of foundation for your skin; if you're using something more dewy it will be more suited to dry skin and won't last so go for a more matte formulation. When I have bridal clients with oilier skin, I always make sure into powder well, but not overdo it. Take some blot sheets (superdrug sell them and they're realy cheap) and a pressed powder for touch ups. A setting spray wouldn't hurt either.

Thanks, baps!

I'm a bit clueless when it comes to makeup. I wear it... but in a bit of a haphazard fashion.

I have combination skin, but definitely tend toward the oily in places. Yay. I recently discovered those blot sheets, and I love them so. At the moment I use a mineral powder foundation and I do like it, but I think I'm going to try some other stuff if I can get my head around it! I guess what I want is something that will last the day, and will look natural, like my skin but better, not like I'm wearing foundation. But, I think that might be an impossible dream! ;)

No not if you get the right formula. A makeup lesson might be a good idea if you're doing your own makeup. If you're based anywhere near Surrey/hants I'd be happy to do one for you for free.

Sorry to butt in but since you mentioned foundations, do you have any recommendations for a matte one? Preferably cheapish? I recently tried the Barry M matte finish one and its the complete opposite of matte on me!

I have really dry skin so I might not be much help (the ones I use in my kit are a bit pricier) but let me have a think.

That's an extremely lovely offer, but I'm a little way away in Oxfordshire. I will look into a makeup lesson, though... that's a good idea!

Yesterday a friend gave me some hand cream & lip balm that she bought from the Animal Aid site ... the marigold & marshmallow hand cream, a peach Bellini & a sticky toffee pudding lip balm ...

I had not looked at their site in ages so she showed me ... they have lots of good stuff ... wine etc.

Anyone got any recommendations for oily skin? Every vegan foundation I've found just makes my skin damp and shiny all day. My skin feels so gross all the time.

I've tried Barry M's Flawless Matte, Collection's "Lasting Perfection" and Beauty Without Cruelty's Ultimate Natural. I also tried a GOSH one a while back but it barely had any coverage on me.

Hmm. How about no 7. They make a matte one (just check ingredients for lecithin which seems to be their questionable ingredient). I'd try a primer too.

What's your skincare routine? Cuz if that's wrong, nothing you put on top will sit right.

I'll have a look. I tend to have trouble with things being too dark on my face so I'll have to see if it fits.

Tbh my skincare is pretty rubbish - I use wipes to remove makeup, dab on some tea tree oil and then use a Superdrug vit E moisturiser, though lately I cut out the moisturiser because of the oil thing. I think my bad skin is mostly hormonal but I am on a huge waiting list to figure that out so not sure how much I can do in the meantime!

Ditch the wipes! Get yourself some good skincare products specifically fotlr oily skin and avoid alcohol based toners etc. It will help.

I don't think you need to spend a fortune. The superdrug b skincare is good. I use their serum but I have dry skin so you'd need to get products more suited to oily skin.

I love merumaya skincare too but it's pricey. Lush also make nice skincare stuff.

Oh cool. I'll check out Superdrug then. I like them because they so clearly label everything! And they give me a student discount ha.

I used to love Lush but they got kinda expensive and I really hate how pushy they are in there. I went to buy my henna and had to spend half am hour listening to descriptions of all their new products.

This might be old news, but there's a Superdrug outlet store on eBay. There's obviously a bunch of different stuff, but there's some cheap B. makeup and the like. I have some plum eyeliner by B. that I love, but they discontinued it, and I just managed to get 5 of them in this outlet store for £1 each, which will probably last me like 10 years! Free postage, as well.
