Odorless make-up removing wipes - do they exist?
Has anyone come across make-up removing wipes that don't have a smell to them? I've tried nearly every Neutrogena wipe out there (as well as Olay, etc.) and all of them seem to have perfumes in them.  It's not a huge problem for me as my skin doesn't break out because of this, but I just personally would prefer to not have my skin smell like pink buttfruit every time I try and clean my face. Any recommendations?

Yay! Hit Rouge in-store today! & BOO it doesn't show up yet :(
And when I say Yay, let me tell you that the first word out of my mouth when the lady informed me of my newly-acquired Rouge status was "No...". By my calculations, I was expecting it to happen in September at the earliest hahah. I guess that Tria & Clarisonic purchase really sped me along nicely! What I am sad about is that it hasn't changed the status of my online account. I put off buying a few more items tonight because I was looking forward to my free shipping. Does anybody know how to update my status or whether my shipping will automatically be free?   Cheers, ladies!

What can i do about my dry skin?
hi!! <3 guys i really, really want to wear foundation. I never get to wear it because my skin is dry. I've tried exfoliators, lotions, anything you can suggest ive tried. and nothing. When i put my foundation on it doesnt look blended into my skin. you can see flakyness and you can still see my imperfections. I go on youtube and see all these beautiful gurus and how pretty and natural their foundations look and i want to look the same.

Help me pick a new lipcolor...
I am turning to you, my BT community, in all of your wisdom. I generally wear neutral/nude/natural lip colors. I think my lips look thin and harsh with dark colors, but I would like to try more of a bright color. I see so many photos posted of everyone, and the brighter colors look so nice on everyone, no matter what shape their lips  or face.  "berry blushed" from Clinique and "watermelon" Burt's Bees are about as colorful as I have right now. Otherwise, I have Dolly Buxom and Blossom by Mally...nice colors, but no pizzazz. Here are my stats and preferences: Fair skin with pink undertones, 49 with nice skin, average lips but they turn down on the corners a bit.   I prefer a more sheer coverage with shimmer. Glosses preferred, but if a lipstick is more moisturizing, that will work too.  Something coral, berry or pinks that aren't dark or fuschia-bright  but are pretty and great for Spring and Summer?  Thanks in advance!

Spot cleaning brushes suggestions
I'm pretty rushed in the morning, so sometimes I don't clean my eyeliner or cream blush brush right afterward, and of course it dries and becomes hard and difficult to clean when I get home.   So I'm looking to change this habit.    What is the best and fastest way to spot clean your eyeliner brush or other brushes that come into contact with liquid/cream products? I'd like it to be thorough enough that I can use the brush for a few days before doing a deep cleaning, abut not super time consuming.

I like to clean brushes used for cream/gel eyeliners with isopropyl alcohol 70% or 91%. I find that it breaks up everything and gets rid of all the eyeliner.  see post

So I've been wanting to try Sigma brushes for a while and just couldn't bring myself to spend so much on brushes.  Then I saw that Jaclyn Hill was having her top 7 brushes in set for $90.  So I did it.  Yes, I bought the brushes! I am super excited for it to arrive.  Anyone else order it?  Any feed back on the brushes that are included in the set?   *F80 Flat Kabuki *F86 Tapered Kabuki *F35 Tapered Highlighter *E55 Eye Shading *E25 Blending *E40 Tapered Blending *E30 Pencil

Blackhead Clearing Cleanser/Mask
Hi, guys! So, I'm in need of a mask or cleanser that will help clear out blackheads or minimize them. I have them pretty bad on my nose and I get a few on my cheeks near my nose. My skin is normal, not oily, not dry. It's also not very sensitive.  I've only got one mask that actually pulls the blackheads out, and it's Glamglow. The only problem is if I use two times in a row, the mask doesn't work the third time and I have to try something else. After using other masks, it works again two times and then I have to switch again. One other mask that helps a little is the Peter Thomas Roth Sulfur Cooling Masque. It helps but not that much. Other than that nothing else really has any effect on them, though. I've tried Exfolikate, but it dried out my skin and left the sides of my nose raw and my skin isn't even sensitive. It also had no effect on my blackheads. I've tried the Boscia Luminzing Black Mask and the Purifying Pore Strips and neither of those do anything but pull off dead skin.  Sorry that's so long Thank you so much in advance!

Need help getting rid of dark circles!!
Hey guys! So I need some help. I have a bad case of dark undereye circles, and have no clue how to make them go away (or get lighter). I got them while finishing my Bachelor in Animation (lots of all-nighters, etc), and so far have only been covering them up with makeup.  I now have some more free time, have been getting my 8 (sometimes 9 lol) hours of beaty sleep. They have slowly been getting better, but I would love some advice on cremes or serums I can use on my undereye are to make my dark circles go away. Cheers!     *** I would like to point out that I HAVE tried the GlamGlow Mud treatment, and that was a no-go for me***

Will not click the ‘Just Arrived’ link. Will not perform search for ‘sephora favorites’ Will not post any promo codes in thread. Will NOT allow outside ‘enables’ entice you to purchase! Even though a product that is on your ‘love’ list but has been sold out, comes back in stock you WILL NOT buy!!!

In-flight mini facial kit - any other suggestions?
  In a few months I'm going to be doing a very long haul (14 hour) flight. One of the things I'm really looking forward to is settling down in my seat, having a glass of champagne,  giving myself a mini-facial and trying stuff from my recent chic week haul to keep my skin nicely hydrated throughout the flight.  I've also got a few simple makeup things so I'll look reasonably decent when I disembark. I think I've got it  all sussed - it's pretty much all foils and samples so I'm traveling pretty light even though I've got lots of stuff.  I'd love to hear any other suggestions though - TSA approved please!   So, in order of usage, I've got: Ole Henriksen Vit C Cleansing Wipes When Whenever You Travel gel fiber mask Shiseido Benefiance Eye Mask Dior One Essential Serum (foil) Tarte Maracuja Oil Clarins Extra Firming Night Cream L'Occitane hand cream and lip balm Single use moisturizing eye drops Then, for freshening up and getting ready to disembark: Lavanila deodorant  Amele freshening up wipes Dry shampoo Teeth and mouthwash stuff (not pictured) Ole Henriksen Vit C Brightening Serum (foil) Murad day cream (foil) Smashbox primer Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream Couple basic eye shadows (not pictured) Lancome black eye pencil Chanel mascara YSL Rebel Nudes glossy stains (foil)

Looking for a red lipstick alternative for travel.
I’ve been working on simplifying my makeup for a rather active trip I have coming up. I have no problem switching out my foundation for a CC cream or skipping the liquid liner in favor of an extra coat of mascara, but I keep on running into a roadblock with my lip color.   I simply don’t leave the house without a fully-lined, totally opaque, semi-matte red lip. But I can’t help but feel it’s a little inappropriate for where I’m going and what I’m doing. I’ve been looking at things like the Tarte Lip Tints or Clinique Chubby Sticks, but I can’t seem to wrap my head around the concept of Not Lipstick.   What I’m looking for is something long-wearing, non-drying, red (pinks and I have never gotten along), but a bit more natural and low-maintenance. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated!     What I usually wear:   Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in F-Bomb   Besame Lipstick in Cherry Red   Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick in Hellbent

Body mist?
What is the difference btw a body mist and regular fragrance?  I was just browsing the body shop and came across the fact that the most abundant ingredient is alcohol. wouldn't it then just "fly away?" would you spray it after body lotion? or in what cases would you use a body mist?

So I know a lot of us order from Sephora quite frequently, and the boxes are clearly marked with "Sephora" on them.   I get several packages a week on average, and today I got two.  That also doesn't include any other packages I receive from Ulta, Beauty, etc.  I'm sure my post office can sort my mail without looking at the name or address just by looking at the boxes!    Anyone else feel this way?
