Something Exciting is Happening With Urban Decay...
I went on a little shopping spree today and both my Sephora and Dillard's Macy's were tearing up their Urban Decay displays. On Friday my Ulta was also dismantling theirs but I didn't think anything of it (they recently revamped to make room for a new Clinique and Lancôme center). Makes me wonder what new things are in store for the permanent line.

what products to use
I’m a 25 years old male with some skin problems and I was hoping I could get some answers here and recommendations on products to use. I have comb skin but I think my face is mostly on the oily side. I have large pores and I have uneven texture on my skin. I just think my skin doesn’t look very healthy. I have decided to get the CLARINS One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Facial Cleanser and use that with the Clarisonic Mia 2 and then use the Thayers Alcohol-free Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera and apply the ESTÉE LAUDER New Dimension Shape + Fill Expert Serum as the final step . Would this help with my skin condition? Any other products that might help me? I have uploaded some pictures of my skin. What seems to be wrong with my skin? are these large pores? I have also noticed I have small bumps on my skin that look like acne and have a yellowish liquid inside. It’s not a white head but more like a pimple that doesn’t get bigger. And when i apply pressure anywhere on my face i get these small yellowsh/white worm looking liquid coming out.

Puffy eyes/bags when smiling?
At rest, my under-eyes are relatively normal-- no puffiness or bags, very minimal dark circles. However, when I smile, they immediately puff up and make me look incredibly tired, no matter how much I sleep. I've tried everything-- drinking up to a gallon of water a day, sleeping 8+ hours, allergy sprays (thinking it was my allergy issues flaring up), cold spoons, and tons of products. I'm really self-conscious in photos now and I'm getting married soon so I'd like to get a handle on this if possible!   I've tried Kiehls Midnight Recovery Eye, both the Garnier/FAB rollers, Clarins eye gel, Origins Ginzing, MAC Fast Response, and I'm currently using Fresh Lotus Eye Gel, which has done absolutely nothing for me and I'm considering returning it since it was not cheap. Are there any other suggestions? I was thinking of going with the Ole Henriksen eye gel next, but I'm sick of wasting $ on products if this is an issue that cannot truly be corrected.

Looking for a Makeup Look
I'm just starting with makeup basically, and want something that will look good with my skin tone, blue grey eyes, hair, etc. I think I have a neutral or cool undertone but am not 100% positive. I'd like something that's not super natural, but still looks good. If anyone has any tips on what might look good on me please let me know. Thanks!

Estee Lauder Double Wear: in between shades Fresco and Soft Tan
I sampled two shades of Estee Lauder Double Wear - Fresco (2C3) and Soft Tan (4C3). Fresco was far too pink for my skin tone and Soft Tan is toeing the line of being too dark, but just barely. I was thinking maybe Pebble (3C2) would be a better match - just based off their names, 3C is in between 4C and 2C. Any recommendations? I'll make my way back to the store, but would like to get others opinions first. Thank you.

Is sephora making more serums?
I see that sephora is making more skincare and I love the masks. I was just wondering if maybe why would make the masks into serum's. Like a honey and green tea serum for dry acne prone skin.

Foundation Color Match
I currently use Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H foundation in the shade 250 Bisque W.  I am trying to find a shade from the Makeup For Ever HD Foundation that is similar to 250 Bisque W.  I was color matched at Sephora and the color is just way too dark pink for me.  Any suggestions on what shade in Makeup For Ever would match or be close to 250 Bisque? Thank you!

Points multiplier event schedule
Not sure if there's already a thread on this, but - I sadly did not plan for the 'epic rewards' over the last year, and now I'm kicking myself for not hoarding my points. Even if there's almost zero chance of actually snagging the ones I want :-) Anyway, I went back through my email to see when the points events have been over the last couple years so I can do better next time. Did I miss any?   2013: August 12-18 (4x/3x/2x) 2014: January 9-20 (2x, skincare) February 5-14 (3x, fragrance) April 24 - May 11 (3x, fragrance) August 3-10 (4x/3x/2x) 2015: January 8-10 (2x, skincare) February 5-14 (3x, fragrance) April 24-May 10 (3x, fragrance) August 2-9 (4x/3x/2x)

Powder Recommendation to help Reduce Redness and for Use w/o Foundation
Hello,   I have rosacea and I'm looking for a powder product that I could use to help tone down the redness on days when I don't feel like using foundation or a CC cream as well. Currently I have been using Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light over my foundation/CC cream, and in the past I have used Clinique Redness Solutions Mineral Powder.  My ColorIQ number is 1R07.   Thanks!

I'm very picky about my lipsticks (can't stand thick and cakey). I like Buxom's old formula but I don't think I ever felt a gel lipstick before. Does anyone have any reviews or swatches?
