Mascara for sensitive eyes
Hi guys! My friend has sensitive eyes and a lot of mascaras irritate them. Does anyone know of a mascara that's good for sensitive eyes?

Are there makeup brands that you're just not into?
Are there any popular brands, sold by Sephora or anywhere else, that you just aren't into or don't consider for whatever reason - consciously or subconsciously?    Like, for me, for whatever reason, I don't even know why, I never even look at Make Up Forever or Cover FX... and probably plenty of others. But obviously plenty of people love both brands and promote them when people are looking for products.

New Makeup Forever Fall 2014 Palette
Is anyone else drooling over this new palette by Makeup Forever?  It looks gorgeous.  I'm also intrigued because I've never tried MUFE eyeshadows (other than a cream eyeshadow I have).  I think I read that all these shades are available to purchase separately from their new line of shadows.  If anyone here gets it, please swatch and share!  Has anyone tried the new MUFE eyeshadows yet?     This gets me excited about fall clothes and boots!!!       http://www.sephora.com/artist-palette-P388223?skuI d=1622885

New Ole Henriksen Cleanser!
*Apologies if someone has posted about this already, I did a search but didn't see anything.   Just finished watching Caroline Hirons new video (I know she is a rather "polarizing" guru but that's besides the point!) and she mentioned as one of her recent skincare favorites the new Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser. I hadn't even heard of this yet so I did a search and found it on Sephora's site! No reviews there yet so I wanted to come over to BT to see if any of you have seen/heard of/tried this yet!   It looks amazing, and I am a huge fan of the Pure Truth line in general. It's also not terribly expensive compared to some other cleansing balms (which this seems to be similar to).   http://www.sephora.com/pure-truth-tm-melting-clean ser-P388265   It has vitamin C, rose hip oil, and like the rest of his products no sulfates/parabens.   Thoughts??

LUV TB: Lost Unicorn for VIBRouge Traveling Box

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.

Cakey Foundation is Ruining My Life!
Hello! So pretty recently my foundation has been acting up. Whenever I apply foundation I ALWAYS get this cakey, dry skin look. I do have dry skin but I always exfoliate and moisturize before I apply my foundation. That being said I also have acne. And normally that's where I find it cakes the most but I don't have acne all over my face, even where I have smooth skin I see that it's cakey.  The cakey makeup won't go away. It's also seems like you can see the peach fuzz on my face, it's so weird.   I use my Laura Mercier foundation with my Cover FX liquid foundation brush. I put on my NYX Pour Filler primer and put on my foundation. I truly put on a thin layer, a thin enough layer that I still see the redness from my acne (which I dislike but I'd rather have my acne showing than a full of cakey makeup.) After putting on my foundation I would normally set my face with a matte powder (which makes the cakey makeup look even more worse.) Add bronzer and blush (height of the cake.) I have no clue what to do anymore. I've tried different foundations, all the way to pricey top of the line ones, to drugstore ones. I've tried different ways of putting the foundation on, my fingers, a sponge, a brush. I've tried BB cream. Nothing is working. Can anyone please save me from this makeup nightmare? Thanks in advance!

Eye Cream Overload
Hello! I'm currently looking for an eye cream to incorporate into my skincare regimen. I'm almost 20 and don't have any specific concerns with my eyes.

Hair Routine for Thick, Frizzy, Dry Hair?
Hey So I've always had very thick and very cource hair that is naturally very frizzy and puffy. Because my hair is very cource, it's also very dry on the ends. My hair is kind of straight, but it's also very, very kinky and flips out all over the place so it has a few loose waves. As I'm growing older (I'm now 15), my hair is getting harder and harder to manage as I get so many flyaways and it's so hard to put it in a ponytale, even. The last year or so I've been straightening my hair everyday and although my hair doesn't get especially damaged as it's so strong, it takes such a lot of time and effort, and I'd love to stop doing so but it looks crazy if I don't. I also dry my hair using a hair dryer, also I don't blow-dry it properly as it's very difficult on my hair and takes such as long time. Although heat is meant to cause more frizz, I find that if I let my hair dry naturally, it's even more crazy. My hair is quite dry but it tends to get a little greasy sometimes, so I tend to wash it every 2 to 3 days. However, I do find that it's shinier and more managable a couple of days after washing my hair.  I'd love to put together a better hair care routine, but I don't what would work well on my hair! Any reccomendations, tips or ideas? Thanks so much ! Oh and I live in the UK if that helps productwise.

What was your very First purchase at Sephora and Why take the plunge?
We've all been there...a bag full of unused or disappointing make up from the drug store, which I still like but without the ability to try before buy you end up with a lot of fails. Then you find Sephora and wonder, is the price worth it? You try a few things, you like a few things, you see the price tag and tell yourself: "Eh, I can go with ramen noddles for a week to afford this." And then you buy it. What was your first purchase? Why did you choose it? I always like hearing other stories like this. Share on!

Q. Best product for acne scars?
Hi all!  I've been browsing the forum and found many suggestions for acne scar treatments.  So I was wondering what the best product is for acne scars?  I don't want a spot treatment or a peel, but an overall face serum/treatment.  But I don't want a face lightening product (I don't want to lighten my whole face/complexion).    Also, can I use these acne scar treatments in conjunction with another serum (such as an anti-aging serum)?  Thanks ahead of time for your advice/suggestions/answers!

HACK FOR SWATCHING LIP STICK OR LIP GLOSS
Not wanting to swatch lip products directly onto my lips, I found a paint chip that is close in color to my natural lip color to swatch onto. My bare lips have a lot of natural color. This hack works for me about 95% of the time. This is also good for determining coverage and pigmentation. Hope this is helpful.

Sonia Kashuk 15 Year Anniversary Brush Set
  I don't know if any of you ladies know about this but Sonia Kashuk just came out with a LE 15 piece brush set in celebration of their 15th anniversary. I just picked up the last one in my town today during my lunch break. I personally think this is a steal. It is $40 at Target.   If you can find it, I suggest to get it right there and then because this set is sold out almost everywhere and each Target in the US and Canada each get 2 sets. Go on to Target's website and use the "find in a Target store" and click on "pick up in store" if it shows up to reserve it. Sonia Kashuk is trying to keep it in stock but it keeps selling out. This set will be available until October according to their customer service line.     If anyone wants to know how they perform, let me know and I will do a small review here on BT.
