How to 'line' lips
This might sound like a dumb question, but I see women use some sort of brush to clean around the lips after applying lipstick, what is that?

Concise Korean skin care literature?
I am planning to give my mother and sister night time Korean skin care ritual sets for Christmas. I bought towelettes, toner, the Amore Pacific exfoliator, and Lancome Energie de Vie essence. I am planning to give them gift certificates to pick out their own serum. I assume they already have a water-based cleanser and moisturizer.   Can anyone recommend a guide for me to include? (I still haven't figured out whether to put sunscreen or Philosophy Total Matteness on first!)

Which Clarisonic Device to Purchase?
Hello! I am 27, and have oily/combination/sensitive skin that is very acne prone. I get breakouts all over the face, but especially on the cheeks and chin area. (I've been dealing with acne for over 12+ yrs). I am looking to purchase a Clarisonic device, and wasn't sure which one to get. Should I get the Mia1 or Mia 2?

Murad Cleansing Oil vs Boscia Makeup Breakup Oil?
I am currently in my 3rd month of Accutane. I am almost done with my Boscia Makeup Breakup Oil. I saw that Murad had something similar.   For those that have used both which one do you prefer? The Boscia one hasn't irritated my skin so not sure if the Murad one would.    To remove my makeup or just clean my face I first use a makeup wipe to remove the initial layer and then to get in deeper I use the Bosica breakup oil.

Q. Colorful Liquid Eyeliner
Hi everyone! I've been getting really into wearing more colorful liquid eyeliners lately, but I've had one problem: on Sephora.com, the top-rated ones are usually black, brown, or grey! I really would prefer to use a liquid, or a gel if I really have to. So, my question to you is: what is the best liquid eyeliner that comes in colors such as gold, silver, blue, etc.?

Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealor Kit match please!
Happy Sunday all!   I currently wear BB's Creamy Concealor Kit in Warm Beige.   I'm looking at purchasing her under eye corrector...I have some dark circles...they're not terribly pronounced, but even under concealor they are visible.   I have come to understand( Tx to BT!!) that a peach-ish color is good to offset the color of circles; mine are blueish.   Any suggestions as to what shade to try?  There's a light peach, and a peach amongst other colors.   I would obviously be using this prior to concealor....Anyone used it, heard about it, thoughts?  I'm open to other brands/suggestions as well.   TX so much for your time!   ~KAM

Foundation just doesn't look right...
Hey everyone!   I got color matched in store. I'm wearing NARS Sheer Glow in Macao. It matches color wise, but for some reason it just doesn't look right.  It looks too yellow and my skin looks sallow and flat. Then I tried MUFE in #75 and my skin looked red. How can I get my foundation to look better ? I need a foundation that can make my skin look brighter and to match my undertones. I have combination/dry skin and lots of dark spots btw.     Thanks!

Sorry if someone already posted this...   December 4, 1:00 Am pst on the Urban Decay website.   My video review if anyone is interested. I really like it…lots of light shades and more of the old style UD shimmer (so not all will agree).  Reminds me a little of the Nars Dual intensity shadows.

In need of a new face wash
I need new face wash or a full out new ritual because I still haven't found any type of skincare solution to actually use. I am in my early 20s and have had chronic acne for years. I have used many products in an attempt to help my chronic acne including: Murad, Josie Maran, Stridex, Neutrogena, and tea tree oil products from The Body Shop.   Nothing is working and I'm getting very fed up. I have combination skin, but the only area I really get acne in is my cheeks, chin, and around my mouth. In these areas it tend to get very oily. In the photo I uploaded, you can kind of see what my current situation is.   Does anyone have any recommendations? I tried to use the online Sephora Skincare i.d., but it recommended me a plethora of products and I don't even know where to start. I am also considering purchasing the Clarisonic Mia System. Any thoughts?
