Marc Jacobs Highliner Matte Gel Eye crayon
Comparing to other gel eyeliners I've tried Marc Jacobs #highliner glides on perfectly, with great pigmentation and it blends so well that I couldn't believe. I used to be a Urban Decay liners' fan but now it is my favourite one. It totally worthes every cent! And lasts all day! I received it as complimentary product from @influenster and @marcbeauty and I can't wait to buy more colors and play with them all! #contest

Help! Need VitaZing moisturizer substitute!
I use the Origins Vitazing moisturizer every day instead of foundation - it gives me a perfect smoothing look without a 'foundation-y' look and it's low maintenance and doesn't make me break out. But Sephora has been out of the Vitazing for weeks now, and I'm running out!    Is there another lightly tinted moisturizer that would be a good substitute? Any suggestions? I've tried Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer which I didn't care for (too sunscreen-y smell and too tinted), and Dr Jart's BB cream which looked fabulous but made me break out something awful.

Need help! Something similar to L'Impératrice, from D&G
Haven't seen that question posted yet. I've been wearing L'impératrice from D&G for about 5 to 8 years (can't remember where/how/when I 1st purchased it, its a mystery) and I really love it, however, I'd like to change for something else. I've been getting samples of Jo Malone, Commodity (hated Mimosa), État libre d'Orange (didn't like any of them, still need to try Remarkable People), and none of my Sephora stores carry the Pimrose brand for me to try. What would you suggest? I want something different because I'm entering a new phase in my life, good one, and want to mentally link it to another perfume, but so far, I don't like anything with strong floral or tonka smells... I'm sure you guys understand. I'm looking for high-end, non-celebrity brands, budget of max $200 for 100ml. Thanks!!

Prom Makeup
I want to get my makeup done at Sephora for Prom but I don't want to pay until I get a preview of what I'm getting.  Will Sephora be able to do a test run for my prom makeup before I make any payments?

Benefit eyebrow stencils in Soft and Natural Brow Kit?
Forgive me if I'm a Klutz - I just brought Benefit Soft and Natural Brow kit and I'm loving every products in that kit.   However.......about the stencils.  Both stencils (arch/straight, look 1 and 2) - I look closely and both look very similar - except when you feel it, you can tell the difference..... So, when I use one stencil, for example, straight, look 1, on my eyebrow, the question is....... should I flip around and use on my other eyebrow?  Or take it out, turn it around, re-insert the stencil tool for my other eyebrow? Please forgive me for the useless question!

Murad Mattifier vs. Skin Perfector
Hi! I am 19 years old (lol my mom and I share an account) and I have extremely oily skin with enlarged pores, acne, and lots of texture. I recently got a sample of the Murad Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 PA++. It has done a fairly good job of keeping my oiliness at bay and I like that it has SPF in it, but I'm curious about the Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion for Blemish Prone/Oily Skin because it says it works better for smoothing out texture (I have lots of acne, enlarged pores, and bumpiness in the center of my face). I will be visiting my local Sephora to test out the consistency of the skin perfector but I was wondering what others think of these two products.

Klairs Vitamin C Serum Expiring?
Hey ladies, I've been using the Klairs C serum for the last three months, pretty religiously and it's been amazing. However, this morning I noticed a little yellow spot inside the pipette that disposes the serum. It's too large to enter or exit the pipette so I'm fairly certain that it's a fungal growth. I tried getting a picture but it's too small and the pipette glass is too reflective for a helpful image.   However, like I said, I've only had the serum and been using it for 3 months. The serum has a shelf life of 12 months from opening the bottle. Has this happened to anyone else? I purchased the serum from sokoglam in late November.    Also, what do you guys think? Is it contaminated?

Best primer under stick foundation?
Hi everyone! So the past few weeks I've been really into stick foundations - both the hourglass vanish and the lancome teint idole. Both I love and find very similar except you need to swipe the lancome twice as much to get the same coverage as hourglass. That being said, the big problem is I can't get the foundation to "stick" to my nose or t-zone. I have applied with brush and beauty blender - brush application essentially wipes the foundation away, so beauty blender has been my go to.   I have tried pore minimizing primers - e.g. porefessional, tarte timeless smoothing, as well as guerlain l'or (whichcauses my foundation to stick in weird areas making it patchy...only with these foundations though, I love it otherwise), and the foundation just slides around my face and breaks up. I set with laura mercier translucent and then spray UD all-nighter. I LOVE these foundations, but I am scared to touch my face because it will remove my makeup. I have also tried no primer, just my moisturizer (see below), which is better but it still ends up sliding off my nose relatively quickly.   I consider my skin to be normal to dry. My skin routine is as follows:   Night time: Cleanse (amorepacific) w/ foreo luna 2, tone (pixi glow tonic), facial sleeping oil (kiehl's), moisturize (first aid beauty)   Day time: Same as night time but no oil. I was using a serum before moisturizing but I took that out because I thought it was causing my makeup to slide around, but I think it's the silicone primers.   My next step is to try the veil mineral primer by hourglass.   Does anyone have any advice on how to keep my foundation in place? Also, I should mention that this problem happens with most foundations, nothing seems to want to stick! But it's particularly bad with stick foundations. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

MUFE Ultra HD to Estee Lauder Double Wear
I've been wanting to try out the Double Wear foundation from Estee Lauder, but don't have a Sephora that carries it in-store to get matched. I decided to just purchase online and return it if need be, but now I need help finding a shade.   I've been using MUFE Ultra HD in the shade Y255 and it matches me perfectly. Can anyone recommend a double wear shade they think will work for me?   Please and thank you!

UD Foundation Shades vs. Kat Von D Foundation Shades?
I am currently wearing a 3.25. in Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless foundation. Once spring arrives, I'll wear a 3.5. I have cool toned skin with pink undertones. What shade would I wear in Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation? I purchased 52, but it's a little dark and will probably work fine in summer, but I'm hoping for a better match now.

Specific question for those that currently use NARS Sheer Glow!
Hello all!   So my current best foundation color match is NARS Siberia. I've been using the Sheer Glow for the past three months and I'm still trying to "figure it out". I feel like the formula is really finicky and I have yet to find a good combination of primers and/or setting powder/spray to make it both last well & mesh well with my skin. I don't think it's a skincare problem as my skin has been relatively normal-dry these past few months (no big skin changes and my daywear moisturizer is relatively 'basic'. I save my layers of hydration for overnight).   So far things I have tried:   - Too Faced Hangover: helped hydrate dry patches that Sheer Glow emphasizes but doesn't help longevity. Sheer Glow still applies a little patchy over this - Becca Ever Matte: too matte for Sheer Glow which tends to emphasize any dry patch - Hourglass Mineral Veil: seems to be the best combo so far, but doesn't help with Sheer Glow longevity. Still totally starts breaking down/melting by hour three. - A single drop of argan oil: makes Sheer Glow apply so smooth and evenly BUT foundation is totally breaking up on my face a couple hours into wear. - RCMA No Color Powder (talc + silica): is okay, but makes Sheer Glow a little dry looking, doesn't totally help with lasting powder - CoverFx Illuminating Setting Powder: doesn't make Sheer Glow look dry, but definitely doesn't help with lasting powder - Urban Decay All Nighter spray: makes Sheer Glow tacky, maybe helps lasting power when in combo with a powder as well   For the sake of a control, all foundation application has been to dot it on with fingers and blend with beautyblender.   I've tried various combinations of one of the primers + powder + spray, primer + no powder, no primer + powder, etc. etc. It's been a long somewhat scientific process, haha.   I would just love for this foundation to work on me! I love the color and I can put up with the sheerness of it if I can just get it to work Most days in the morning I've been in too much of a rush to play this long layering game with Sheer Glow and I've been slapping a little Tarte shape tape everywhere and pretending it's foundation, lol   TLDR:  My question to those who currently use NARS Sheer Glow and it looks good on their skin. What combination of primer / powder / spray /technique do you use to make it wear nicely?
