WANT INEXPENSIVE BB/CC/TINTED MOISTURIZER BASE FOR AT HOME WEAR
Dear All,   Since I turned 40 I have been hyper sensitive about my uneven and oftentimes dull skin tone. As I have 6 children (who all bring their friends inside) + an 18 year old au pair (with perfect youthful skin), I can no longer bear to reveal my bare facial skin in the house.   I have tried several Loreal options, but none seem to have the coverage/glow giving properties I desire (they do however work miracles for my teenage daughters). I've also tried Clinique's CC cream, but my under eyes still look dark, which is incredibly ageing; similar story with Estee Lauder's CC Cream.   I love Estee Lauders Double Wear All Day Glow BB Cream for going out in the warmer months, but would ideally like something better priced for the house ...   Any ideas? Do any of you wear a base in the house?

Benefit Tints
I love Benefit and its tints (for my cheeks, that is).  They're not all created equally though.  Yes, they are a beautiful collection of red, pink, orange and purple.  While you can dot, dab or draw a line of Benetint, Cha Cha Tint and Posie tint and take a few seconds to rub them in, you must rub Lolli in very fast to prevent streaks.  I suggest applying it one handed with the other hand up there right away to blend.  You can also apply the tint to your finger and quickly rub it into your face.  Forget brushes.  With Lolli, there is no time.   A customer asked my Benefit brow specialist about the tints today.  When she did not know the answer, I filled the customer in.  She told me I just sold her on the product and proceeded to buy it.  Then, my Brow Specialist started asking me how to work the tints today.  I thought if I can help a Benefit rep, others may have questions.  She had only tried Lolli and had no clue the other three were easier to work with.  Hopefully, other people who start with Lolli are not afraid to try the other three.   Anyway, if you have questions about the tints, post them here.  Someone will fill you in.  If anyone is interested, I can provide swatches as well.

eyeliner still smudges with eye makeup primer
Hi - i need an expert's feedback on how to apply eyeliner on without it smudging.  I've tried applying primer such like Too Face's Shadow Insurance and Urban Decay's Primer Potion with eyeliners like Urban Decay 24/7, Nars Larger than Life, Bobbi Brown Gel liner, and Chanel Long-lasting eyeliner.  The primers didn't work on me.  My eyelids do get oily for some reason when my entire face is normal to dry.  What am i doing wrong or what am i not using correctly?

Skincare Regimes! Let's talk about them!
Hello friends! I am always curious to know what people's skincare regimes are; how can a skincare fanatic not want to see what other people are using!   My skin is very strange, it is combination (very) oily, dehydrated, and acne prone along with reactive to various products.   Without further ado, here is my current skincare routine!   Morning:   Cleanse - Fresh Soy Face Cleanser Tone - FAB Facial Radiance Pads Hydratation Tone - 100% Pure Rose Water Serum - Peter Thomas Roth Viz 1000 Hydrating Serum Moisturize - Fresh Rose Hydrating Gel Eye Cream - Fresh Lotus Eye Gel Night:   Cleanse - Fresh Soy Face Cleanser Tone - FAB Facial Radiance Pads Hydratation Tone - 100% Pure Rose Water Treat - Kielhs Midnight Recovery Concentrate **  My nose is very breakout prone, so I do not apply any product to it during the day and use a prescription topical acne medication on it every night to stop the clogged pores **   Lips - Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm   Specific  Days   SUNDAY Shave Exfoliate - Clinique Face Scrub (Mens line) TUESDAY Glamglow Supermud Mask WEDNESDAY Shave SATURDAY Glamglow Powermud Mask And there you have it! My wonderful, yet crazy, skincare regime!   I am EXTREMELY interested in seeing what your skincare regime is as I am new to the Advice Talks!   I definitely look forward to seeing the different combinations of products and also looking to see what other products I could potentially use!   I love Skincare! It's the best!   Michael, xo

Please share your Personal Tips/Products/Tricks to Minimize Under Eye Concealer from Creasing.  Also, what under eye products...Moisturizer/Primer/Concealer/Tool(s) do you use?   There are always products/suggestions/tips that are very helpful that haven't been tried or a new method to what may have worked in the past that needs tweaking as our skin changes!   I have a personal interest in ALL your suggestions for Dry, Crepey or Mature Under Eye Skin Texture trouble shooting.    P.S.

Diorskin Star Foundation
I am so excited to try this!    It's available on Dior's site now, any idea when we might see it on Sephora?   "Inspired by the professional illuminating techniques and expertise of its makeup artists, Dior invents Diorskin Star, its 1st brightening foundation: a weightless fluid capable of recreating the spectacular and perfecting light of Dior's studios.   - The complexion is instantly more luminous and visibly more even. A new generation of hollow silica beads captures and diffuses light in a correcting halo with no shine. At the same time, colour-filter pigments neutralize colour imbalances to recreate the perfect light. - The complexion is clarified with a purer, more dazzling and long-lasting light. Anti-"light-trap" skincare ingredients help reduce the appearance of dark areas, pigment spots and redness."

LUV TB: Lost Unicorn for VIBRouge Traveling Box
--closed-- Box of awesome high end items and unicorns, show me yours and I'll show you mine, lol. While I’m not “ancient”, I’ve been on BeautyTalk WAY longer than I ever expected and have made some very good friends….as well as been enabled into getting WAY more makeup, lol. It is getting a bit overwhelming and as much as I like pretty things, my style is more minimalist, so I don’t reaaally need 6 or 7 jars of Guerlain meteorites etc. To help revamp/reorganize my stash as well as having some fun with the awesome friends I’ve made, I’m doing the LUV TB.    It contains lots of makeup that I love but never use, altho I couldn’t bear to part with any perfumes or majority of the skincare, so you ladies will have to make up for it along the way. Keep it classy, with high end and preferably new or lightly used things. No drugstores. Since it’s got tons of expensive items, I asked people I trust who are interested, so the box is closed. If it goes well, I may do another one next year when I've accumulated enough treasures. =P   Expand below to see the rules, taken from the awesome roxystar4 and slightly simplified:   Spoiler (Highlight to read) * Please make sure every item is in a plastic ziplock bag to prevent spills.

Treatment
My Sephora has one of the best staff there. Everyone remembers my face, some have made the effort of remembering my name which is so flattering. Last night I went to buy a Sephora brand eyeshadow, I have never bought single shadows but the other day I bought one and I was so impresed that I decided to buy my white matte from the sephora line too. Anyway, I walk in and instantly see the new MUFE artist shadows and naturally I gravitate towards them, by the way... blown -away-. A sephora lady comes up to me and provides me with information about the mufe shadows and I ask her about the one I bought but unfortunately in stores they don't have the name of the shadows - just the number. We ended off with the note "Okay, I'll let you play now!" .. I have never been told this but I definitely felt like a kid in a candy show - which is a great feelnig in my opinion! I love it when I'm not just being stared at, or often have them come up to me and ask if I need help. It was a great experience and all because that lady made it so with her words     The clients are another thing though, I was in line - the first one too - and I was waiting for someone to call me up so I could pay and this girl out of nowhere just gets in front of me ... and after a while she says "Oh I'm sorry, where you here first?"....no kidding, she did leave after I feel that I had the look of death on me. >_>   That aside, I love my sephora and its employees!

Lines under my eyes more prevalent after switching to Sephora
I am new to sephora and just had a makeover done.  I purchased the Jeil Hourlgass Primer, YSL Touche Eclat Concealer, Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder, Givenchy Photo Perfection Foundation, Sephora Micro Smooth Powder and Nars Issist Highlight Pallete.  All of these products were used on me during my make over and at the time I loved it.  After using for a month now, I am noticing that the lines under my eyes are more prevalent than before.  So, I have quit using the Brightening Powder and Sephora Powder and that has helped some.  I was also wondering if maybe the illuminiation in the highlighting pallet might be causing the lines to show up more.  Do you have any suggestions on what I shoud do diffrent to help with this problem?  Yes, I do have lines but they were not as noticble before I switched makeup.

Anyway, I'm looking for a neutral kind of no-blush blush that adds a bit of flush and definition without much color and it seems like a couple of them could fit the bill. Or, if anyone can recommend a different blush that would accomplish that, that would be cool, too.
