Which brands are easy to depot?
Hi Beauty Insiders!   My question regards the use of beauty brands and z-palettes.  I've hopped on the z-palette bandwagon and have started to depot my makeup. Even with the "prying" tools and the use of the heating method, the pans can be hard to pry. My question is, what are some makeup brands that are easy to depot? As "conceited" as it sounds, my heart breaks a little when I crack the makeup I'm trying to get out.   Thanks, IMAS

Dupe for Clinique's Up-Lighting Liquid Illuminator in Bronze?
Could anyone help me locate a good, reasonably priced dupe for Clinique's Up-Lighting Liquid Illuminator in the shade Bronze? My mom uses it, but it's been discontinued recently and she's trying to find a replacement for it.   Any and all suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks!

HG foundation products combo!!
MJ Coconut Primer + KatVonD Lock-It Foundation (liquid) + bareMinerals bareSkin Sheer Sun Serum Bronzer. Yyaaahhhss!!   Wow, what a difference the damp beauty blender (just bought my first one) & the Marc Jacobs primer made! Barely used any Lock-It. Treated the blender like a cushion compact applicator & just kept patting. The Lock-It foundation applied in such a lovely thin, even layer. So natural looking (but still had coverage). I applied the bareSkin bronzer serum also with the blender (barely damp) as a true bronzer just where sun would hit. So, so pretty!! Loved it!!   I did use a pat or two of KatVD Lock-It powder foundation over 2 small patches of melasma on my chin, and Guerlain Les Violettes pressed powder to set undereyes, and to barely add a finish very sheerly in t-zone.

facelift surgery?
  Hi, my elder sister has a plan to undergo facelift surgery in Dr. Omar Fouda Neel's clinic in Montreal. The problem is that none of our friends or relatives have undergone one before so we are quite unknown about how the procedure would be like, how long would be the recovery time etc. I wish if I could get her some more useful information regarding facelift surgery. Is there any other procedure that should be considered along with facelift to get a better result? Do you guys have any alternative option to suggest?

Any other option than Beautypedia / Paula's Choice? PROFESSIONAL REVIEW SEEKER. HELP!
Does anyone know a similar site? Reviews made by experts and with more brands? I feel that Paula's choice is not updated and there so many brands that are missing... Any ideas?   I do love Paula's choice reviews, more o less they give you a professional overview of the product, and so much info about ingredients. Help!     Have a great day everyone!   XX

In need of new face products for combination skin that aren't cakey or powdery and have good coverage
Hi! These past couple of months I have been using cheaper makeup brands. Now, my skin is starting to react badly to them. I don't break out, but my skin feels like it is burning. I am looking for face products like foundation, concealer, color correctors, and powders (translucent/setting powder and regular face powder). Brands, tips, and any other helpful advice are very much appreciated. Thank you!

Best Product to Invest In
I have a $50.00 Gift Card (Canadian) and want to try to get a couple of things out of it.  I am going to be asking a friend who is dropping in the City this weekend and I will be giving her an extra $20.00 so let's say $70.00 in total I have.  The Sephora in the City which is like 2-3 hours away from me doesn't usually carry a lot of the stuff I want.  Which is why I have to always create a list.   I created a list of some stuff I want to get that I have been wanting to try in forever basically.  But wondering if there is anything else worth spending money on...   This is what I have so far:   1. ABH Brow Wiz 2. ABH Brow Gel 3. ABH Brush #20 (this is a maybe) 4. MUFE Aqua XL Eye Pencil in Matte Pastel Blue 5. NARS Radiant Concealer   Any other suggestions?

Q. SK II Cellumination
SK II's Cellumination line has been discontinued and pulled from the US market. Sephora still carries the cream and lotion from that line which I believe is existing stock waiting to be sold.  But the cellumination Aura Essence is gone, even from department stores. The asian market has it's replacement of with the Genoptics line. Anyone have any ideas when and if Sephora will add Genoptics to their SK II offering?

Eyeliner breaking
I have a MUFE Aqua XL eyeliner and whenever I try to sharpen it, the tip breaks off in the sharpener.   1) It's a new sharpener, so the blade isn't dull. 2) I've tried putting it in the freezer before sharpening and that didn't help.   Does any one have ideas on how to prevent it from breaking off?   Thanks!

Sunrise, Sunset.. Post your favorite daily beauty routines rituals (morning or evening)
Hello all! I've been gone for awhile but I of course severely went through BT withdrawal!   So before I post my general question to the group, I need to reference these two recent incidents I experienced.: 1. The Sephora SA doing my makeover suggested I start using night cream for my eyes. Hello!!! I'm only 36 years old, I have never really taken care of my face except for a ever so needed makeup wipe at the end of the day. Her advice was like brick to my face. 2. After getting a recent facial my t-zone was a dry crumply mess. (btw, never happened before) It not only hurt but my face was bright red.   So with that being said, I have adopted using the products below per suggestions for others. And it got me to thinking. I would love to know your routines!   Please post your morning and/or evening routines with pics if possible. I will heart everyone's first post to this thread so we can hopefully get the discussion going. Can' wait to hear what all of you have to share!   My bedtime skincare routine:

Hourglass Veil. VITAMIN C, Oxidizing or what??
Hello!  I checked out Hourglass after some suggestions here.  In short, I love it!  But my color match ended up tricky.  I did Color IQ in store and came out 1y05 or 6.  Some 06 looked slightly bit dark right now, but most everything in this range was a nice match.  Except the Hourglass Nude 1.5 Veil, which had the finish and coverage I liked the most, but when trying it at home it kept getting unnaturally peachy for me, almost orange.     I recently read that some vitamin c serums can cause color changes in foundation or BB cream.  Does anyone have an experience with that?  I'm wondering if the store makeover was so good because the serum was cleansed away before priming etc.  Or does this brand oxidize a good bit, and I should adjust for that with a lighter shade?  I know I can add a lighter powder to fix it, but I don't want to because it alters the dewy finish I love about this foundation.   I do have some alternatives in Josie M's Vibrancy and Shiseido, but I'd like to know if I could make this work.   Thanks!!

ONLINE RESERVATIONS - TOO MANY STORES STILL NOT AVAILABLE!
I absolutely love the online beauty reservation module for booking makeovers, however only TWO of my local stores are on there.   Sephora Park Royal - ONLINE Sephora Pacific Center - ONLINE Sephora Metropolis - MISSING Sephora Coquitlam - MISSING Sephora Robson - MISSING Sephora Guildford - MISSING Sephora Abbotsford - MISSING   When are these Sephoras going to get with the program? They are IMPOSSIBLE to book at through old-school means, you are lucky when they answer the phone, and they are always so scattered when you try and ask for dates.   PLEASE GET THESE STORES ON THE RESERVATION PROGRAM ASAP!

Swatches of all 4 Anastasia Cream Contour Kits on 4 different skin tones
So we just recently did a full video review and demo of all 4 palettes in Anastasia's Cream Contour Cream Kit in Fair, Light, Medium, and Deep kit. We showcased it on 4 of us girls with different skin tones, so you can really get a sense which palette will work for your own skin tone.   This is totally a newer reformulated version Cream Contour Kit than she first launched last year. I love it because it gives the skin a very soft sculpted glowy look to your skin!   Let us know what you think or if you have any questions on the kits!

Wander's frame your face brow pencil
Love this product! Would purchase for the brush itself. At first I was worried you would be able to see the difference between the pencil and my eyebrows, but it is so natural and long lasting. Definitely recommend!
