Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation Shade
HI! I'm looking for my shade in the Estee Lauder double wear foundation and concealer. I currently wear MUFE HD foundation in shade 117 and HD concealer in shade 4. If you know what that would translate to in the Estee Lauder world, I would immensely appreciate it. Thanks!

The Question Thread: Because not all questions need their own thread.
I'm making this thread because I simply don't want to create a new thread for every little question that pops into my head, nor do I think that most questions need a separate topic.    I had previously just dropped whatever random question that came to mind into the Random Thread (thanks jemly!), but I had been thinking about starting this for a while and figured I'd give it a shot to see if it could be of any use.    I'm well aware that the people who could best utilize this thread will likely remain completely oblivious to it, but if it can consolidate even a small fraction of questions -- and maybe even generate some interesting conversations both beauty and non-beauty related -- that seems worthwhile.    Official thread mascots: The Curious Puppies.   Official thread anti-mascot: Lucille Bluth.   It probably would've been wise of me to have a relatively inane question to use as an example and kick this thread off...    Well, since I apparently don't have any pressing questions, I'll start with this two-parter:   What's your favorite drug store nail polish shade AND which official mascot puppy is your favorite? Bonus/Extra Credit: What's it's name?

Foundation Shade Help
Hi!    I am looking to try the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation as I've heard amazing things about it! However my local Sephora doesn't carry Estee Lauder cosmetics (only skincare-boo) so I'm not able to get properly color matched/sampled. I'm willing to buy a full size, but I am not sure which shade to go with. I'm very pale, current foundation is Tarte Amazonian Clay in Fair Beige....and with most foundations I tend to wear the lightest or second lightest shade. Any help/advice would be amazing!!!!   -Tanya

Hi Tbear696,   shayog is right. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like there is an exact match for you based on the foundation you currently wear. However, I'd suggest ... see post

I adore my Cover Fx foundation brush. It's fantastic.  It's dense so it does not absorb the product, but it applies it smoothly to the face.         see post
Beauty Pet Peeves
What are your beauty pet peeves?   Here are a few of mine   When there's a huge hype around an item/brand or your own hype to get something and you get it and you are just meh.   I recently got a few items that were taking FOREVER to get to my house.  Canada Post was sooo slow at processing... the items were stuck with them and the tracking wasn't moving at all.  I was so excited and couldn't wait for them to be delivered and finally the items just showed up (tracking not updated) and I was like meh... not too impressed with what I got.  I thought I'd love it but no... not really. Swatched and sitting in a drawer somewhere... awww that just kills me lol   Another one (and this is for the Canadian girls). When you see free shipping on your favorite beauty products and then notice below in very small font US ONLY. ugh   So what grinds your gears? Share your stories!!!

Love for Brushes
I'm developing a love for brushes of all kinds.  Here's my collection as it is right now, although I just placed an order for more Hakuhodo brushes.  I bought a few and they are amazing so I had to get more lol.  They are incredibly soft and my makeup glides on like a dream.  They have so many interesting shapes.  I can't wait to get the 103 and 142.  Show your brush collection!  Do you have any tips or tricks on how you store them?

Hyperpigmentation/dark spot concerns
I have dark spots on my face, especially on my upper lip.  It really bothers me as it looks like I have hair there or I have a dirty face.  So far nothing has worked in lightening them and they get much darker in the summer, even when I wear susncreen.  I've tried prescription hydroquinone, light therapy laser.  Hydroquinone didn't help, the laser treatment did for a bit, but they all came back.  Does anyone know of a product that can help in getting rid of them?  And also a sunscreen that can hopefully help avoid getting them any darker in the summer?

Skincare starter kit for 58 yr old mum! :)
Hi all you beautiful ppl,   My mum's gonna visit me next month and I wanted to surprise her with a few skincare bits. She's very low maintenance in terms of her skincare and doesn't do much, which is why I don't want to overwhelm her with a ton of product. I'll share what I have in mind and I do need suggestions on what you think are non-negotiables, esp for that age range.   Skin type: Dry, dehydrated mature skin. Undereye wrinkles, no other wrinkles on face, but some firming action would be great . Neck needs some firming for sure.   I've put my list in spoilers. Pl feel free to comment on what I have/haven't included. "??" indicate that I def need suggestions in that area, esp morning, night serums, eye cream and day moisturiser.

Dior's lip glow is a favorite of mine, I go through about one a year and I absolutely love it.     It's a little cost prohibitive to try all the colors, so I wish there were something cheaper I could try that's similar.   I love the scent, the spf, the moisturization, and the light barely there color I get from lip glow.   Any suggestions?

Rotating Makeup Challenge: Work it Weekly
Whether you want to push your creativity or just utilize your collection, I hope you will join me in a rotating makeup challenge!   Each challenge lasts a full week so you can post any day that is best for you, or multiple times a week. New challenges start on Mondays.     The schedule is posted in the spoiler tag. PLEASE let me know of any ideas you have and I will add them to the list!

Color correcting pallets!
Ok so I'm debating between three color correcting pallets, taste rainforest of the sea color correcting pallet, stila's color correcting pallet and makeup forever color correcting pallet. I want something not too cakey but not too watery either. Creamy texture is preferred and they are all around the same price range so I'm not worried about that. Thanks everyone for their feedback!

Toner and Cleanser recomendations?
I've been searching for the right cleanser and toner for my skin. I have normal to dry skin and most cleansers I've tried make my face feel sticky. I'm constantly buying new skincare and taking them back to the store. I'd like a cruelty free cleanser and toner that helps hydrate my skin.   Any help is greatly appreciated

Murad anti-aging lines
What is the major difference between the Murad Age Reform (purple) and Resurgence (green). I am 37 and a consultant in the Sephora store told me one was for my age and one was not but I can't remember . Thanks!

Hi all,   I hope someone can help me as I purchased a KVD shade and light eyeshadow palette off a fb makeup page and believe it may be fake. I did ask prior to purchasing the item and the seller assured me she purchased it from Sephora.   I live in Australia where we currently only have 3 Sephora stores BOOOO none which are close enough for me to compare the two. I have done some research online but have not been able to find out enough to determine whether it is real or not. I have compared it to my KVD shade and light contour palette which i know is 100% authentic as i purchased it from Sephora Sydney last year.   The quality of the packaging mirror size and lettering seem the same the only difference seems to be the serial numbers the font is different and one is longer then the other but I'm unsure if this is because one is a face and the other is an eye palette. The quality also seems questionable however i can't say i have swatched the real thing but again just comparing it to my shade and light contour it doesn't seem the same quality.   I have attached two photos the top is the contour palette and the other is the eye. If anyone could please help put my mind at ease that would be amazing xx

That was for the eye palette.  But here's the link anyway. see post
What mascaras are you buying for Mascara Madness?!
Mascara Madness is back at Nordstrom this Saturday the 23rd. Buy 2 get 1 free mascaras! The only "high end" mascara I have used is They're Real by Benefit, and I love it, but I wanna use this sale as an opportunity to try maybe some MAC or Clinique...really anything! I naturally have long lashes, just looking for a mascara that will really darken them and add volume, with no clumping or flaking. What mascaras do you recommend buying from Mascara Madness? What ones are you going to buy!?  Thanks beauties

Perfect match for Contouring and Highlighting? + A few more questions
Hi there,   I'm pretty new to makeup...The only thing I can really do as far as makeup is Concealer, Foundation and lipstick.. And that's it. I want to get past that and get into more things like eyeshadow and such, but I really want to get into contouring and highlighting..   Now, a couple of questions I have is, does your foundation match your skins undertone? (horrible way of putting it lol) But I mean, I have like a medium cool concealer from ulta, cool foundation from Ulta all of my products are "cool" does that mean I have a cool undertone?   If so, I was looking at the Black up contouring stick, (I suppose your suppose to pick one that matches your skintone?) So I'm guessing i'm a medium or a medium light? (I'm not sure!) and if I do have a cool undertone, is there a color correcter (for my deep set circles under my eyes plus that line..ugh) that would go well with my skintone?   Also, do you have to use bronzer and blush once you highlight and contour? and my last question is, is it foundation,color corrector concealer, my regular concealer, highlight then contour?     I'm sorry if my questions are everywhere, I just dont know where to begin...or what colors would look good on me! I don't want to spend hundreds on the same products to try to find my perfect match lol.   So..any product recommendations or my skin tone? when it comes to highlighting-contouring and color correcting? Since I'm new to this, I wish I had a list of everything you need lol :/

Okay, so here are the basics of contouring:   First, if all of your foundation products are listed as "cool", you're almost certainly cool-toned or these would not loo... see post
