So first off I have super dry, sensitive skin and the reddest cheeks ever! So straight away thats an issue for me, and heavy foundations make it look like around my cheeks somebody has gotten a pin and pricked loads of holes!    So anyway, I have tried using to colour iq with Sephora on the website, but since I'm in the UK I can't go to a store. So I've done it with two foundations I've used. I tried with my Estee Lauder Double Wear and I'm 1c1 cool bone which puts me at a 1y03. However when I try my Bare Minerals Bare Skin which is porcelain I come up with a 2y03. So I don't know what to do and what colour to do with as it gives me completely different shades and I don't want to order something, open it and discover its the wrong colour as I would literally be devastated as I don't mind spending money on a good foundation but if its too dark or doesn't sit right with my dry skin I wouldn't want to spend loads of money.   Please can you help! I would appreciate it greatly!

I forgot to give my beauty insider card when I made purchases in store..

...other than throw myself off a bridge. I mean seriously this was my holy grail foundation. There hasn't been anything else like it on the market. So, I need a little help here before I go back to the store.    What I need advice on is for a foundation that will give me the same type of coverage, hydration, and staying power. I have Rosacea and dry, sensitive skin. Clearly, price doesn't impact my decision here in any way.    Thanks for the advice! Signed, Foundationless in Oakland

Will sephora be carrying any more of the full size colors in the salon perfect line. I bought the sampler set and feel in love with the powder pink shade. I would like to get it in the full size. 
Lips
Hi guys, this is my first time posting on beauty talk, and i really need some help! I just recieved my Anastasia Beverly hills liquid lipstick in carina today, and i really wanted to love it! But i find its too bright for me (I'm a neutral or medium in most foundations). I'm wondering if a lip liner would help in any way. Has anyone used a lip liner with it? And if so, which one? Thanks in advance!

I loved this makeup when I tried it in the store, and I like how it looks when I put it on. But after a matter of minutes, it looks terrible! It doesn't stay on very well, so the initial coverage (which is great) fades or somehow makes me look like I am 10 years older and sickly. It emphasizes every patch of dry or flaky skin. I switched from Lancome's Teint Idole to this foundation - and was definitely encouraged to do so by the significant price difference between the two - and the reason I switched from Lancome is because they stopped making it in my skin color. I tried getting someone at Sephora to do a color-match or color ID test thingy for me, but the result was essentially inconclusive--like I was in between colors or something I don't know. I don't know what to do or try. I pick at my face terribly, so I tend to avoid powders bcs they only make any texture on my face look worse. I also tend to avoid oil-based makeup because they tend to clog my pores, giving me the sort of blemishes I then pick at relentlessly.  Any suggestions in terms of make-up foundations/concealers = much appreciated!   by the way, I have been using Clinique's Even Better foundation in "Linen" - I am naturally pale (and a red-head) but I go tanning every now and then to avoid looking like a corpse (yes, tanning is bad, but I definitely don't get enough sunlight, and I go once or twice every 2-3 months) anyway, I tend to find that makeup is either way too dark, or like, white. Helppp!
Hauls
I'm looking to get a haul from Memebox... I was kindly given a 20% referral link from this board. I am going to get the Benton box for sure, as I like their essence, but does anyone else have any Asian products they can't live without?

Do I use the Recovery serum in addition to the recovery Peels or would that be considered dual treatment?? I bought the Peels today and forgot to ask!

Does anyone one know why the case for the Stila Eyes are the Window, Soul palette has been changed from the gorgeous yellow and rose gold compact, to a matte pale gold case/packaging with "Stila" on the front of it?? It is only the 'Soul' palette, the other three palettes in the collection have the original mirrored gold cases. I find this very strange and am hoping this is not a permanent change so I can get the palette in the original mirrored gold case.
Skincare Stories
Hi all! Has anyone else experienced actual skin peeling when using Good Genes?? I had this problem with Luna as well, though so far, the peeling w/ Good Genes is more minimal (Luna gave me red skin AND peeling). Is this normal? If so, does it subside after my skin gets used to the product?   For reference, I've used Drunk Elephant's Glycolic Nightly Peel w/ no actual skin peeling issues. And have used Sunday Riley's Artemis, which is not a peel of course, with no issues.
Eyes
Does anyone know of any eyeshadows similar in color to Lancome's Platinum? I loved that eyeshadow and it was discontinued a while back.

I was obsessed with my Lancome L'Extreme mascara, but I ran out and I think it has been discontinued. What's the closest thing I can get to it?

Hi! I'm looking for a new foundation and these are the two I've narrowed it down to that I am interested in trying. Thoughts?   I've already tried MUFE Mat Velvet Plus, Givenchy Photo Perfexion, and Maybelline Matte and Poreless. I'm looking for something with a natural satin/matte finish and medium coverage.    Thanks!
Fragrance
Ok guys I'm really in love with Atelier's description of their scents and the few I've been able to smell IRL.  Since my Sephora doesn't carry many of the scents, I was thinking of getting their sampler pack directly from their website (where they then give you credit for that amount towards a later purchase of a bigger fragrance), but before I committed to what would likely be an expensive addition to my minimal scent collection (I otherwise wear ginger or Bvglari's Black--I can't stand most floral scents and am more of ginger, tea, or other quirky scents) I wanted to know how well it lasted on.   Also, anyone have any other scent suggestions for someone who likes scents with things like: Bergamot, Leather, Rain (naturalish clean scents as opposed to ones that your dryer sheets might come in), Ginger and hates: floral (esp things like rose & lily, I can deal with violet); "hippy" scents (basically if you can find it in incense, I can't wear it or be close to it without dissolving in sneezes, so things like patchouli, frankincense, myrrh, etc.)

I keep seeing photos of sheet lip masks on Instagram and I really want to try one. Anyone have any recommendations? I recently saw a picture of a Sephora brand sheet lip mask on Instagram but they aren't available at the Canadian stores. Anyone know where they are available? I love their sheet face masks so I'd love to try their lip ones.
