I am on the fence between Laguna and Casino. I currently use the regular Laguna for everyday contour, but I saw that this new version is lighter and more buildable. What color would you recommend for medium olive skin? I am NC30-35, and have peach undertones. I wear St. Mortiz in the tinted moisturizer, Santa Fe in the powder foundation, and Punjab in the foundation (all NARS).
I've become increasingly disappointed with the Play boxes. Anyone else feel the same? Partly because I feel the boxes contents are predictable for example, you'll get a face primer about every other month (or even every month). Which may be great for people who can use primers, but my skin loathes them (yes my Play profile is updated and correct). Throw it in the trash. If you get a makeup sample it is in some obscure color that may be fun to try on one time, but you're not walking out of the house with it on. Throw it in the trash. See the pattern, I pretty much throw almost everything I get in the trash. BUT every once in a while you'll get a gem of a sample and that just reinforces me to want to keep subscribing. When Play first came out I felt like there was better samples being sent, but now it's just whomever they have a deal with. Should I just hang in there and ride out this rough patch? Thoughts?
Ive never bought any makeup from Sephora! Id like to make my first purchase. As a first time customer, what product would you recommend I try in the lipstick category? I am Indian, Wheaties in complexion and usually wear reds and picks bright and natural. I don't mind Matt,/glossy/anything else or trying something new.
Hi looking for color help I wear color Y31 for makeup forever ultra HD concealer and Neutral Linen for sephora collection matte perfection powder, can someone help me with a color for laura mercier tinted moisturizer?
I realized that the last time I purchased any new eye palettes was almost two years ago and my oldest one being 3 years old (TF original Chocolate Bar palette). That explains why I am a little bored with what i have. My current collection is the TF chocolate bar, semi sweet and born bon palettes as well as the TF sugar pop palette and the Tarte Aqualillies (my absolute favorite palette) palette. I am incredibly fair (I wear TF Born This Way in Snow) with blue eyes and light brown hair. I don't know if it is the age of my palettes but the TF chocolate bar palettes seem to be harder to blend than they used to, unless that is my imagination. I am uninspired by a lot of the palettes out right now but the two I am eyeing are the TF sweet peach and the Tarte tartlette in bloom. I am looking for something that will create a nice daytime look but can go a little darker for nighttime if needed. It seems lately that all my looks turn out darker, but that could just be me getting carried away trying to use a lot of shades. I am curious to try more Tarte eye products as I love the Aqualillies palette and it is my only experience with Tarte eye products. Does anyone know if they have a new eye palettes coming out soon? What do you think of the two palettes I am eyeing?Are they good options or should I stear clear? I forgot to mention, I have cool undertones if that helps. Thanks!
Hi, I need help getting the right shade for Armani Foundation. I've used Luminous Silk before in shade 4.5, and now it seems too light.. especially in photos when light hits it. I consider myself light to Medium shade with cool undertones/ when I get tanned I turn more of a golden yellow. I also want to try Designer Lift due to the reviews and spf. Beauty Experts. can you please point me to the right shade for Luminous Silk and Designer Lift foundation. Thank you so much!
I'm wearing a navy blue dress and I'm using the Modern Renaissance palette for my eyes. I have very pale neutral-toned skin, blue eyes, and very dark brown hair. I would really like something that doesn't need to be reapplied to often and doesn't look super weird when it wears off.
So, according to the laws of colour correcting.. Salmon/peach - dark circles Yellow - concealing blue/purple bruises, veins and under eyes Orange - dark hyperpigmentation and under eyes. I am medium skin with warm undertone, e.g. Wheat - 3N2 in Estee Lauder Double Wear. I have medium dark circles AND veins. How would I colour correct this? Thanks
It is finally the last day of VIB Rouge sale, and I am really struggling with which one to get for my last shopping! I know that I will love all of them cuz they are all perfect shades for my complexion and I am generally looking for great eyeshadows, but I have to get only one of these three. Which one is the best value and must have? Please tell me your opinion <3 1. Bobbi Brown Simmer Brick Palette - US$42 2. Marc Jacobs Object of Desire face and eye palette - US$44 3. Bite Beauty Love, Bite Lip set - US$32 Price is not the retail one, it is how much I can get these for for now.
I'm in desperate need of a pressed powder foundation for those days when I am just not feeling a full face. I often set my face with a loose translucent powder on full face days, so I'm unsure as to what would be the best pressed power to use? I would be using this alongside UD naked concealer and some liner/mascara/dip brow. My skin type is pretty normal, but gets oily from time to time. I don't want anything too heavy or cakey obviously. I was considering too faced pressed foundation, but many of the reviews say that it really only works best as a setting powder after using liquid foundation. So, whats the best out there? Thanks!
I will be going to Hawaii for a month and I think that due to the humidity I will need a primer to ensure my makeup has some staying power. Right now I am using the NARS Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and it lasts for me without any primer until about 3-4pm when applied at 7 am. I am in between choosing three different primer options at the moment. Any thoughts on the following: Sephora Collection Beauty Amplifier Ultra Smoothing Primer http://www.sephora.com/beauty-amplifier-ultra-smoo thing-primer-P412147?skuId=1829274&icid2=products% ... Cover FX Calming Primer http://www.sephora.com/calming-primer-P388019?skuI d=1641281&icid2=products%20grid 388019 NARS Pore & Shine & Control Primer http://www.sephora.com/pore-shine-control-primer-P 415963?skuId=1900117&icid2=products%20grid 415963 Or any other recommended primer? I do have oily skin when it comes to the afternoon and more dry in the morning.
I got a brand new Marc Jacobs Genius Gel Foundation from Sephora today and noticed the foundation has separated in the bottle. We then checked three different Sephoras and all the bottles looked the same. Does anyone know if it's normal for the Genius Gel to separate in the bottle? If I shake it mixes together and after awhile separates again. Is the foundation bad or is this normal for this product due to the gel texture? Thank you.
Hello! I am thinking of splurging on a new bronzer and wanted to see which one you like better Tom Ford Terra, Marc Jacobs Bronzer or is there some other brand I should look at. I have Chanel Tan de Soleil, Bobbi Brown Medium Bronzer and a sample of the Benefit Hoola. Any advice is appreciated? I have light to medium skin tone- Blonde Hair/Green Eyes. Thank you,
I'm addicted to Stila Smudge Stick but the caps are terrible, constantly fall off or crack, leading to dried up twist pencils and wasted $. I read I can re-soften with a little heat, but is the effect permanent or do I need to apply heat every time? Threw all my dried ones away and I'm trying to decide whether to re-invest in new pencils with bad caps. Also, the candle trick is described for wooden pencils but what about twist-up pencils from a plastic tube like Stila? Thanks!
I was charged twice . According to the Sephora support team I was the one who placed the order twice and all they've been doing is putting the blame on me. Isn't shopping online suppose to be stress and hassel free? I like to avoid the stores in my area as the line is often crazy busy when I can make it out. Has anybody use the return shipping label? Do you get a full refund back? Or do they deduct the amount used for the shipping label? Thank you!
