gel-like top coats
I've been looking for a really good gel-like plumping + shine topcoat. I've tried: Sally Hansen gel shine, P2 volume+shine which wasn't bad at all, one by OPI, Gel Setter by Essie, a Revlon one...you name it I have probably tried it. What am I missing...Is there one that lives up to it's name? Thanks!

Dry Skin Patches: Seborrheic Dermatitis
I have oily skin and reoccurring seborrheic dermatitis which comes back about once a year. Very flaky dry patches around my mouth and nose will appear that don't disappear from regular exfoliation and have to be treated topically. They remain dry no matter what skincare item I layer on it (including oils and Vaseline).   I have no idea what triggers it but so far, it seems to be products with Sulfates (especially cleansers). I find that if I use a sulfate-free cleanser it tends to stay away, but I don't know if it's actually true or just all in my head. When it does act up, I use Psoriasin for a week and it vanishes but it still sucks that it happens out of nowhere.   Does anyone else face this issue, and if so, have you find a better way to keep it away? I haven't seen a dermatologist yet because when it does come up, I never have time. So I'm looking to the community to share any tips thanks

Sensitive, combination, acne-prone skin with hyperpigmentation - Help!
I have sensitive, combination skin with a lot of hyperpigmentation from acne scars (no texture) and have been breaking out really badly on the lower half of my face for a few weeks. I ran out of the skincare products I was using and bought new EVERYTHING (cleanser, toner, moisturizer,serums, foundation,primer, etc). I've been using Glamglow facewash (white bottle, mud to foam), Ole truth serum, Strivectin eye cream (even though I'm 20, I want to prevent wrinkles. Lol), and a combo of Yes-to-cucumbers and Yes-to-cotton moisturizers after using witch hazel as my toner before the serum. Some nights I use the Sephora overnight mask or Estee Edit night moisturzer, and I use the Ole pore sauna scrub weekly along with different charcoal/acne masks. I use Too Faced born this way foundation over MUF Step One, and sometimes Dr. Brandt pores no more but I thought it irritated my skin. I don't know where to start fixing my skin. Help!!

Foundation? Oil skin? Full coverage?
I never even thought about wearing foundation. I thought that it would be uneccessary since my skin is fairly okay. I do have acne (mostly blackheads and a few white heads), skin discoloration, and very dark under eye circles. I have also been battling oily skin (sorry to sound extreme lol). I've found nothing really has solved the problem. I currently have found products that help, however my makeup continues to slowly vanish throughout the day. Today at UltaI tried the Amazonian Clay 12 hour full coverage foundation and I fell in love with it! It really made my complexion look so amazing and I was told by the consultant it could potentially keep me even more matte. How anyone with oily skin tried this and liked it? The problem is I am only 15, and I heard once you start wearing foundation you really can't stop. I don't want to mess up my skin and I don't feel I need full coverage. Thoughts? And yes, I have tried Tartes tinted moisturizer/ BB creme and I like it, but I feel it may not keep me as matte and it didn't look as good as the foundation. Wow sorry I've written so much!

Peeling Dry Flaky skin upper lip area - Help?
Over the last two days my upper lip and the area above it has been dry, flaky/peeling and red. Could it be a chemical reaction from some product? I don't believe I tried anything new on my lips that I had not tried before. When I touch that area it feels a little rough to the touch. It did burn a little when I was using facewash to wash the area and when I put cream on it like Belief's Aqua Bomb. I am kind of smearing the area with Bite agave lip balm but it just feels so weird and rough-ish.

Foundation Help
I'd like a recommendation for a foundation. I have combination dry skin, and my dry patches seem to show with heavier foundations like Urban Decay All Nighter. I also have a mild case of acne, and would like a medium-to-full coverage, and preferably one that won't make my acne much worse. I go to school, so would prefer a long-wearing one that won't move when used with primer and setting spray. I'd also prefer one with a more natural finish. As much as I like matte makeup, I think most will settle into the dry patches in my face. The foundations I have tried have been Urban Decay All Nighter, Urban Decay Naked, and Fit Me in Matte.I found that all of these, with Naked being the least severe and All Nighter the most, seem to emphasize my dry patches, and I find the All Nighter, as pretty and full-coverage as it looks when it's first put on, seems to bunch in places like my nose by the end of the day. Thank you for helping me!

This is my typical night time routine:   OLEHENRIKSEN the clean truth foaming cleanser OLEHENRIKSEN invigorating night transformation gel OLEHENRIKSEN invigorating night transformation creme   Stupid question: Can I use my AMOREPACIFIC treatment toner after the cleanser but before the gel?   And also, once or twice a week I would do this for night time:   OLEHENRIKSEN the clean truth foaming cleanser Exfoliator Mask OLEHENRIKSEN invigorating night transformation gel OLEHENRIKSEN invigorating night transformation creme   Just want to make sure the mask is incorporated in the right place.

PERFUME SAMPLES
I would love to have the option of getting samples of perfumes I am interested in thru sephora.com. Many of the perfumes I would like to sniff are not sold in my local stores and are not the typical rewards or weekly special offerings. I wish that for any perfume available on sephora.com - you could get a sample ..... even for a sample price or point purchase. I do like that some lines have discovery sets, but that is often way too much for me to see if I like or don't like a perfume (which is often "don't"). I am unwilling to spend $100+ on perfume if I can't smell it first, and I am not one to buy and return willy-nilly as that just seems irresponsible. Would love if you would consider adding this service for customers!

Powdering/Sealing Cover FX natural finish foundation
So I absolutely love the Cover FX foundation, I personally use the natural finish foundation in N10. It matches me so well, looks so natural and beautiful, but it's really getting on my nerves. Every time I wear it I can't seem to properly powder, seal or do anything to keep it from transferring like crazy. I've tried a few different powders, several techniques, but nothing seems to work for me. The only one I haven't tried at the moment is the Cover FX powder, but mostly because I've had others on hand already and didn't want to spend more money on new powder when I had several.   I really don't want to switch foundations since I love this one so much, but I'm truly at a loss after speaking to so many people and seeing no results. PS, I have tried powdering the foundation with the mineral foundation, and it didn't work for me at all. I've also tried makeup forever and cinema secrets.

European Brand
Hey guys, so i am having trouble finding the name of the brand that makes eye shadow that i was trying to buy like two years ago and maybe someone can help me. Here is what I remember: 1. They were not an American brand, maybe Swiss or German? 2. They had palates and individual shadows but they were RECTANGULAR in shape, and according to peoples reviews you get a lot of grams. 3. They were not cheap, I think they wanted like 5 dollars per shadow so a palate would have been around 60/70 dollars plush shipping from Europe.  4. They used to be popular on YouTube before: color pop and coaster sense and morphe, and they had a unique name I think starting with a V or a Z (not Viseart)   Anyone know?

Q. Help building skincare routine (33 yo)..so overwhelmed
Hi I'm basically a very old skincare novice, completely clueless (you'll probably see another post from me about makeup haha). I'm trying to take better care of myself so I'm starting with my skin. I'm 33 and my 2nd son aged me probably 10 years. I've done the sporadic facial, the sephora mask, cheap and expensive products based on Sephora  recommendations but there's no plan or consistency really. I need help building a routine. My skin is ok for the most part, I would say normal although I have no idea what's the criteria to label it otherwise :/  My biggest concern is my eyes, since the birth of my son last year they took a big hit...bags, wrinkles, dark circles. The other concern is that my freckles (On cheeks and nose) are merging together and creating age spots...dark spots? I was always happy with them now I'm super self-conscious.  Would you lovely ladies help me with advice for someone my age? Probably a step by step daily routine with product recommendations? do i need a peel, mask? dermatologist visit? when to do facials? I don't want to say there's no budget , but this is very important to me (I got hit with PPD hard) so I'm prepared to make an investment

Routine help for dry skin - order to apply these products?
Any other product recs for my dry, flaky skin? I have a skin condition and some psoriasis-like patches/texture on my cheeks, however generally my skin isn't sensitive and I can keep this at bay with a good AHA.   AM: -Cleanser (PC Skin Recovery) -Toner (Fresh Rose Deep Hydration or PC Skin Recovery or P50 - any suggestions for AM?) -Vitamin C? (Drunk Elephant C-Firma) -AHA? Do I use any in the AM? In conjunction with C-Firma? I have PC 8% AHA gel, 10% AHA liquid and Sunday Riley Good Genes. I d o need to use AHAs daily to prevent dead skin buildup, but not sure if I should use 2x/day - my skin isn't sensitive. -Also - May Coop Raw Sauce - AM or PM? -Drunk Elephant B-Hydra under moisturizer? -Moisturizer with SPF - any recs? Is it ok to skip this if I have SPF in my foundation and set with Coola setting spray with SPF? PM: -Cleanser (PC Skin Recovery for now - any other suggestions for dry flaky skin? I was going to try YTTP's Kale/Spinach etc cleanser however there is a retinol derivative in it and I'm pregnant - can't use) -Toner (Fresh Rose Deep Hydration or PC Skin Recovery OR P50 - any suggestions for PM?) -AHA next? PC 8% AHA gel, 10% AHA liquid and Sunday Riley Good Genes - OR Drunk Elephant Babyfacial mask for exfoliation instead? When to add in May Coop Raw Sauce? DE B-Hydra? Ceramidin Liquid?  PC 10% Niacinamide Booster? Drunk Elephant Babyfacial mask? Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist?   I also have Dr. Jart Ceramidin Liquid & Cream, a few choices for moisturizers: Belif Moisturizing Bomb, Drunk Elephant Lala Retro, FAB Ultra Repair, etc. - anything along these lines I should/could try? Though these all seem to be working great (FAB Ultra Repair isn't QUITE moisturizing enough though)... Oils: Sunday Riley Flora, Sunday Riley Juno, Fresh Seaberry - I rotate these. Was using Caudalie c15 Polyphenol Overnight Detox but had to return as it's not pregnancy safe. Also was using Sunday Riley Luna - also had to return due to pregnancy. I realize there are a lot of products that can substitute for one another but I like to have a few to choose from
