Has anyone tried Graftobian or Kryolan cream foundations? I saw a YouTuber use a Kryolan Palette for contouring and highlighting and now I want one   There's a ton of different Kryolan ones. I was drawn to these in particular:      Or should i just save money and get a coastal scents concealer palette?

Dry
I have never experienced this before but my skin is in big trouble! I have dry skin and that's nothing new and I have never had much problems with that as long as I follow my skincare routine. But in these four months, my skin has been feeling extra dry. At first, I thought it was probably because I moved to a colder and drier place and my skin needs to adjust. My skin feels better now; however, the skin area around my lips are still extremely dry and flaky and I do not know why. I tried every product that I think might help but nothing has changed. Please if you have any idea what is going on, or anything that you think might make my skin feel better, please let me know. Thank you very much!!
Makeup
I've noticed a few threads on how to clean brush and whatnot, and in them, deep cleaning and spot cleaning is mentioned. Sooooo can anyone explain the difference? Isn't cleaning a brush cleaning it?

Skincare Stories
Hi guys, are there any of you ever tried NUDE skincare? I just start using their oild treament, I really like. and want to try these two products "Advanced Renewal for face and eyes". I wonder if it's worth to try? or do you have any favorit products that work better for fine line? I have oily/sensetive skin. Thank you

And when I say Yay, let me tell you that the first word out of my mouth when the lady informed me of my newly-acquired Rouge status was "No...". By my calculations, I was expecting it to happen in September at the earliest hahah. I guess that Tria & Clarisonic purchase really sped me along nicely! What I am sad about is that it hasn't changed the status of my online account. I put off buying a few more items tonight because I was looking forward to my free shipping. Does anybody know how to update my status or whether my shipping will automatically be free?   Cheers, ladies!
Lips
I am turning to you, my BT community, in all of your wisdom. I generally wear neutral/nude/natural lip colors. I think my lips look thin and harsh with dark colors, but I would like to try more of a bright color. I see so many photos posted of everyone, and the brighter colors look so nice on everyone, no matter what shape their lips  or face.  "berry blushed" from Clinique and "watermelon" Burt's Bees are about as colorful as I have right now. Otherwise, I have Dolly Buxom and Blossom by Mally...nice colors, but no pizzazz. Here are my stats and preferences: Fair skin with pink undertones, 49 with nice skin, average lips but they turn down on the corners a bit.   I prefer a more sheer coverage with shimmer. Glosses preferred, but if a lipstick is more moisturizing, that will work too.  Something coral, berry or pinks that aren't dark or fuschia-bright  but are pretty and great for Spring and Summer?  Thanks in advance!

I go on youtube and see all these beautiful gurus and how pretty and natural their foundations look and i want to look the same. I think i would be the happiest person alive if someone can help me out. Thankssss

Combo / Normal
Hi, guys! So, I'm in need of a mask or cleanser that will help clear out blackheads or minimize them. I have them pretty bad on my nose and I get a few on my cheeks near my nose. My skin is normal, not oily, not dry. It's also not very sensitive.  I've only got one mask that actually pulls the blackheads out, and it's Glamglow. The only problem is if I use two times in a row, the mask doesn't work the third time and I have to try something else. After using other masks, it works again two times and then I have to switch again. One other mask that helps a little is the Peter Thomas Roth Sulfur Cooling Masque. It helps but not that much. Other than that nothing else really has any effect on them, though. I've tried Exfolikate, but it dried out my skin and left the sides of my nose raw and my skin isn't even sensitive. It also had no effect on my blackheads. I've tried the Boscia Luminzing Black Mask and the Purifying Pore Strips and neither of those do anything but pull off dead skin.  Sorry that's so long Thank you so much in advance!

I'm pretty rushed in the morning, so sometimes I don't clean my eyeliner or cream blush brush right afterward, and of course it dries and becomes hard and difficult to clean when I get home.   So I'm looking to change this habit.    What is the best and fastest way to spot clean your eyeliner brush or other brushes that come into contact with liquid/cream products? I'd like it to be thorough enough that I can use the brush for a few days before doing a deep cleaning, abut not super time consuming.

Hey guys! So I need some help. I have a bad case of dark undereye circles, and have no clue how to make them go away (or get lighter). I got them while finishing my Bachelor in Animation (lots of all-nighters, etc), and so far have only been covering them up with makeup.  I now have some more free time, have been getting my 8 (sometimes 9 lol) hours of beaty sleep. They have slowly been getting better, but I would love some advice on cremes or serums I can use on my undereye are to make my dark circles go away. Cheers!     *** I would like to point out that I HAVE tried the GlamGlow Mud treatment, and that was a no-go for me***

So, I've had a points card with Sephora since summer of 2012 and have around 700 points on it (according to the sales associate last time I went in). However, I've noticed that if I'm browsing online I have no points whatsoever. I'm a little confused. =S   I'm in Canada if that changes anything?

I am very interested in trying some Fresh Skincare products so I was wondering if anyone could tell me what products they liked and/or which ones they did not like from the Fresh brand.

So I wanted to pick up a new palette but I don't know which one or ones to get.  I have the Naked palettes, Smoked, and Vice by Urban Decay.  But I'd like to branch out and try a different brand.  I've only read reviews on these palettes and I do want to swatch them, but I don't want to be tempted by all 4.  Is there any that are better than the others? Are they pigmented?  Good variety?  Or are they too closely related to my palettes?  Any help is appreciated!   http://www.sephora.com/monarch-eyeshadow-palette-P 385530?icid2=Kat_Von_D_WhatsNew_Carousel_P385530_l ...   http://www.sephora.com/chrysalis-eyeshadow-palette -P385529?icid2=Kat_Von_D_WhatsNew_Carousel_P385529 ...   http://www.sephora.com/the-chocolate-bar-eye-palet te-P384402?icid2=Too_Faced_Editors_Picks _P384402_link   http://www.sephora.com/the-return-of-sexy-eye-shad ow-palette-P375171?skuId=1442201

I’ve been working on simplifying my makeup for a rather active trip I have coming up. I have no problem switching out my foundation for a CC cream or skipping the liquid liner in favor of an extra coat of mascara, but I keep on running into a roadblock with my lip color.   I simply don’t leave the house without a fully-lined, totally opaque, semi-matte red lip. But I can’t help but feel it’s a little inappropriate for where I’m going and what I’m doing. I’ve been looking at things like the Tarte Lip Tints or Clinique Chubby Sticks, but I can’t seem to wrap my head around the concept of Not Lipstick.   What I’m looking for is something long-wearing, non-drying, red (pinks and I have never gotten along), but a bit more natural and low-maintenance. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated!     What I usually wear:   Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in F-Bomb   Besame Lipstick in Cherry Red   Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick in Hellbent

And yes, packaging does matter   I am looking for a great-smelling cream that will look cute sitting on my desk, that actually does what any good hand cream should. I don't want to have to apply it every two hours in order for my hands to feel moisturized, but I'm sick of buying Eucerin or Aveeno and not having any fun with how the creams actually look and smell! I like florals and fruits, and even herbs...I'm not picky in the smell department.   Please share with me your favorite creams that you think fit the bill!

Hey everyone,   So I am in need of a good recommendation for Tinted Moisturizer that can be found at Sephora.    I've been using the Wet'N'Wild one that you can find at Walmart. It's a great product longevity wise, coverage wise but the color selection is very poor and doesn't work well for me.    So I am on the hunt for a new Tinted Moisturizer that has Light to Medium buildable coverage. It'd have to be great for Combo skin and have a much wider shade range. I'd also like it to have decent longevity as well.
