I'm looking for a serum to brighten my skin, age 53 and a product to diminish dark circles/brighten eyes.  How is the Ole Henrickson vitamin C serum for older skin?

hey! so i've been looking for a good foundation for a really long time and can't seem to find one. I've tried everything drugstore brands and high end brands, but they never seem to have the coverage that I want. I'm looking for a foundation that can't be seen by anyone i really want it to blend in with my skin. I also have acne scars and acne that I would want to cover up. Is there a foundation that can do all this for me?

Hi everyone,    Since there are many LE items or discontinued items that we search for, I wanted to know if there is any interest in maintaining a thread to post any unicorns we stumble upon and list where it can be found so others can try to find these items that they are looking for. I thought this might be useful as I found a few items on my trip and also found it extremely helpful when a fellow BT member posted about the availability of Tom Ford's Nude Dip on Selfridges a couple of months ago so that a few of us could finally order this LE item.  I also thought that if there are LE items that people are looking for, they could PM me and I could add it to the main thread so that others would know what others may be looking for. I could update the Found Unicorns on the main post weekly. Looking for your thoughts, suggestions? This would be strictly for limited edition items and discontinued items. Please include location, date found, and price if it is selling for less or more than regular retail price. Thanks in advance!   Wanted Unicorns:   ABH amrezy palette ( minibux, BeautyIsPassion)   Chanel Ombre Contraste Sculpting Veil in Notorious (minibux,KateLovesYSL) Chanel Camelia de Plumes (michelleshops) Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in New Moon (Greenporchlights)   Chantecaille Rose Face Powder (kateye7)   COTY Sephora Marsala eye palette (jcmb, julietta343)   Dior My Lady Blush in 001 and 006 (jellybean917) Dior Amber diamond (aviscardi)   Divergent set (ImHisAngel)   Estee Lauder Heatwave (aviscardi) Givenchy Confetti Powder (MK89, KateLovesYSL)   Guerlain Cruel Gardenia (Rhiannon1419) Guerlain Écrin 4 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in Turandot (2012 LE) (jenpred)   KVD palettes (NIB) including Gypsy, Mi Vida Loca, Sinner and Truth (AmyC)   Lorac mega pro (sdbeautyjunkie)   MAC pressed pigment in Summer Honey (StephaniLynn) MAC True Romantic Blush and MAC Petal Point blush (Javadoo) MAC Alluring Aquatic Bronzers/blush (MK89) MAC whisper of guilt (aviscardi) MAC Bao Bao Wan Opal Beauty Powder (ohsotatooed)   Nars Douceur blush: (bea0t, Ivyxox)   Paul & Joe's kitty lipsticks (FireSpinner, Lynni98)   Sephora Cinderella mirror (Mk89, AmyC, Panda168)   Sigma Creme de Couture shadow palette(StephaniLynn)   Tom Ford Guilt cream shadow (killahbabe) Tom Ford Emerald Lust (Poisonivy9) Tom Ford Violet Dusk Eyeshadow Quad (KateLovesYSL) Tom Ford Lips & Boys in Stavros (minibux) Tom Ford She Wolf (lipstick4soul) Tom Ford Ginger Fawn lipstick (greenchilli)   Urban Decay Honey eyeshadow (MK89, Gwenhwyfar)

So Ive found myself going down the rabbit hole that is Tom Ford beauty. I picked up the Seductive Rose quad yesterday. I really like the formula, particularly of the celestials. Is there a green eyeshadow in existence? I've been wondering if it is worth tracking down the Emerald Lust quad, but unsure of the formula of the 4 colors and if any celestials are included?   Are their any options other than the Sahara Haze quad? Thanks!

So I recently started a blog about skincare, makeups and just overall beauty and lifestyle.  I wanted to let BeautyTalk know and ask for support from all you beauties.  I hope this isn't out of place, because Beauty Talk is part of my inspiration and reasoning for starting a blog. Plus, I buy 95% of my products from Sephora.   If you like what you see, please support me by following on Google+ and/or Bloglovin. You can find me by searching for callmefafi.   Thanks!

There's no Color IQ for Cover FX drops, but I was matched at P20 by my neck- which I think makes me look washed out and too pink. My pic should be attached of the P20. I'd like to do N20, or even N25 since I think I look so pale in 20. My color IQ is 3y06 and says I'm Light Med Olive in Ardency- which makes no sense because I am Alabaster (2nd to lightest color) in Clinque Stay Matte. I was thinking Light Beige for this brand. I'm trying to decide between the two based on which is best for my sensitive skin, oily t-zone, patchy dry spots and for long wear. I've been wearing the Cover FX for about 4 hours, and it already seems to be breaking up. Help, please.

I hope you guys don't mind me starting this one off early. I feel like April is my month. New job and all. So here's a new makeup item added to my sailor moon collection.    So basically. That cap can be put on a pen or pencil or my eyeliner.

I am sure we all have some products that we use the most and then we "run" to Sephora (or other stores) to repurchase and stock up on it, with a thought - "Just in case or I am about to finish up my other one, so I might as well pick up a back up now... etc" .    What are your most used products, the ones you know you'll go and repurchase no matter what?    Mine are: - Anastasia Brow Wiz -  ohh boy - this is one of my little fave things that I use the most and I buy few of them a year, just because I use it so often. - Nars Creamy Consealer - does its job, so smooth and gives me the coverage I need! - When Travelmate face masque <3 - so amazing, portable, and  travel safe/mess free!!

Hey Beauties- We have ALOT of threads around here for Tom Ford products. I figured I'd start one thread where we can update each other on items as they come out or we see them available.    For all my UK'ers, or people willing to pay for shipping from the UK, Harrods has Softcore and Nude Dip from the Fall collection available right now. Happy Shopping!

Online and in-store, the OCC products are pretty scarce. Is OCC being discontinued in Sephora, or something else?

I thought it'd be fun to create a thread where we share our 'mask faces'! I'd love to see how lovely & silly you all look with masks on It'd be great if you mention the name of the mask you are using as well!   I'll start things off!   Tonight I am using the Lush Magnaminty mask

So I finally got this with my 500 points perk! Woot! I tried it out today to contour and brighten and highlight as well. But I guess cause Im semi new at all this highlight and contouring, my face was all red and you could see that I have LOTS of makeup on.    So I ask, what is the first step before contouring and how do I get it to perfection? Yes, the steps are in the back of the box but I still dont understand it.

Does anyone know of a good banana scent conditioner? I heard about the one from The Body Shop, but I read a lot of reviews how it doesn't exactly smell like bananas. I want something that's very moisturizing and leaves my hair really soft, with the sweet scent.   Thanks!

HI, I'm wondering about purchasing Makeup Forever brushes. Are they good quality and do they last long? Thanks.

Has anyone tried products from StillGlamorus Cosmetics before? (I know glamorous isn't spelled correctly, btw, it's how the owner spells it.) I placed an order on May 2 from their web site for some pigments and haven't received a shipping confirmation or my order yet. I tried using their online Contact Us to ask for help and got no reply. I texted the number and the person responded pretty quickly asking for my name. Then I didn't hear anything else. I looked on the Facebook page for StillGlamorus today and noticed Kasey (the owner and YouTube beauty personality) had created an e-mail address to address concerns. But I'm really getting kinda pissed. I've paid money and have no product. And even if/when it does arrive, I have no idea what the quality will be like. Do any of you have experience with this brand?
All Other Concerns
There was a thread not that long ago about those asian exfoliating foot peel masks and since seeing it and discovering that (thanks to whoever initially posted about it!) I just knew I had to buy it. I just thought that my Canadian gals would like to know that I found a box at Pharmaprix in Quebec (otherwise known as Shoppers in the rest of Canada) for pretty cheap. The internet told me that Shoppers carried a brand called Footner, but that's not what I found. But I did find "Feet Treat Pedi" by "Look Beauty" and the box says it was made in Korea. It was 10$. I got the last two boxes. It has the same directions as all the other ones: soak feet, wear for 60-90 mins, rinse feet. Feet start peeling in a few days.   I'll either try it tonight or tomorrow night. I'm kind of excited but scared I'll go nuts and peel all my skin off. I just hope its as good as the real deal. I guess I'll know in about a week.

I'm looking for a new Pore Primer. I have tried literally every one from sephora and none of them work well with my skin. I have oily skin. I have heard that Korean/Japanese brands make some amazing ones, does anyone know of any good pore primers?    Thank you!

So I feel like i've tried almost every mascara out there, including those primers before the mascaras and nothing helps.    I have really long lashes and it's great and I get complemented on them all the time with people asking me if they're real and what not. The problem is they are stick straight. They look great for the first few hours but after that it's game out. I can play with them to give them a little boost but who wants to keep going that.   I curl them, I apply the Diorshow primer and I feel like i've used every mascara under the sun but i'm still open to suggestions so throw them at me. Ones to avoid because i've already used them   Guerlain Maxi Lash, Urban Decay Perversion, Benefit They're Real, Too Faced Better Than Sex, Dior Overcurl, Diorshow, YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils, and too many drug store ones to name and one that I thought actually worked pretty well but flaked   Also, lash curlers, does brand really matter? And why is it that sometime my lashes will curl the opposite direction, like out instead of back? It's also frustrating because I feel like one eye always curls perfect and other always sucks, kind of like eyeliner, it's the worst!

Hi everyone, I recently bought the Marc Jacobs Twinkle Pop in the shade Leila. I LOVE the color so so much, which is why I am hesitant about returning the product even though I've had some difficulty using it. Even if I do a few thin layers to build up color, it looks very patchy on the lids. The color is not smooth-it looks like a layer of sparkles with a light tint(even less than an hour after application) Does anyone have any tips to better use this product? It would be much appreciated! Thank you!

trying new products can be...overwhelming. do you love a product because it works ? can you tell right away if it's performing the way you want it to ? sometimes i'm so happy to finally try something and let my enthusiasm blind my  actual  impression of it (at least at first )   it takes time to come to proper conclusions ! particularly when it comes to skincare, but makeup too.   so here's a thread where we can discuss our experiences while trying a product  for a first time. it can also be a place that people can reference if they're considering a new product.   right now i'm trying a sample of the REN v-cense night cream. i've only used it for 2 nights so far, but i LOVE IT. i love it so much i'm tempted to go ahead and grab it up, but i need to make sure it doesn't break me out over time (it contains shea butter which *can* be a breakout trigger for me, but not necessarily). it smells of frankincense which i adore, but i know for some people would be a turn off.   i'm also checking out the VICHY aqualia thermal serum. i really love the CAUDALIE vinosource s.o.s. thirst quenching serum, and prefer the texture of it to the VICHY, but think the caudalie may break me out slightly (i also was probably overusing it...i was very enthusiastic). so i'm just trying to figure out which i prefer.   how about you ?   __________ post trial edit about the products above: i had to skip on the REN because the shea butter in it was too heavy for my skin. and i suppose buying something simply for the smell isn't the best use of my moola the VICHY aqualia thermal serum, however, is in my permanent arsenal. i've already repurchased once since starting this thread, and have turned a few people on to it too !
