I really need a good foundation/foundation tips for dry skin. I also have some acne scars on my cheeks. However, whenever I put on my foundation and concealer it always ends up looking cakey and gross. Any tips or suggestions? Thanks!!

This is more about helping me understand what the girl at Sephora wrote on my foundation sample.   So I've been looking for a good foundation for some time now and since I don't know much about this I decided to visit my local Sephora. I found the foundation I liked but I'm just having a really hard time finding it since what the girl helping me wrote down doesn't seem to match any of the foundations online.  Would someone please help me find this foundations by MUFE or tell me if she just wrote random numbers down?    The foundation is MUFE #4365

Hey everyone, I really could use some help/advice/suggestions on this. Now that we're going to be heading into autumn and winter, I want to buy a new foundation. I normally use BB Cream Spring + Summer, and Foundation Autumn + Winter. The only problem is, I have NO idea what foundation to get. Do you have any favorites? I've been eyeing the UD Naked Skin and KVD Lock-It foundations, but I'm really open to suggestions. For reference, I have dry skin and I use Smashbox BB Cream in Fair. Thank you in advance!

Acne
I recently have been having horrible flare ups and my skin is very sentimental to harsh acne treatments. I tried the Clinique acne three step solutions and it made my skin a lot worse. I currently use Fresh soy cleanser in the morning and Purity 3 in 1 cleanser at night, Lush tea tree toner, Clinique spot treatment and try out various lotions. Any recommendations that works better? I don't work well with salicylic acid cleansers

Hi! I am in need of new makeup that i can count on! I have the oiliest of oiliest skin (especially in my T-zone) and i want to be able to control it as much as i can. But i hate looking cakey! I need products that can control my oils without making me look like a cake face or feel super heavy on my skin. No matter what i do, my makeup always looks cakey within a few hours! Anything that can keep my oils down yet keep me looking natural is what I'm looking for.    Definitely need help!   P.s. I hope this makes sense!

Hey All!   I'll be 31 soon and am finally starting to take my eye skincare regiment seriously.  I'm looking for something (especially at night) to help address fine lines/wrinkles, but am totally overwhelmed at all of the options.   I do understand that I should be looking for something with retinol and have been pouring over reviews for a bunch of products (Verso Super Eye and Dr. Gross Triple Correction serums seem to be the top so far), but want to make sure I don't spend money on something that's not going to help in the long run - so here I am!   Thanks in advance!

I was going to get a Sephora gift card, can I use it online if I use the Canadian store? I know this was a problem a while ago, not sure if it has gotten fixed yet.

Hey ladies! I just purchased the new Backlight Priming Filter from BECCA. Does anyone have an opinion on it? So far, I think it works great as a primer. Not so sure about its "glow"? Anyone else?

Thoughts on Too Faced Better than False Lashes Extreme. Worth the price? Does it really work or do you recommend a different product? Just want a mascara to lengthen my lashes (they are super short).

Lips Q&A
I am getting married this winter and being the beauty junkie I am, I am already planning out products for the big day. Much of make up inspiration comes from the perfect sheer berry lip stain worn by Adelaide Kane as Queen Mary in the CW TV show Reign. According to multiple sources the make up artist on the show uses Pixi's (Target) Bitten Berry stain but it is discontinued....  Any suggestions on a sheer, matte magenta/berry toned lip stain for my big day?   Thank you so much for your help!!!!!

I was an avid user of the original formula but sadly hate the new one. I am still looking for something with the same consistency and coverage.   My skin is dry and most things don't seem to be good for me. I use the LM hydrating primer with a serum and good moisturizer. I've tried Nars creamy compact and the Hourglass hylauronic tint foundation, but my face still feels a little dry with it on. If anyone has recommendations i would really appreciate it.   As i said, i have dry skin. To give you some type of reference to the paleness i am, i used to wear Rose Ivory for LM foundation. And i'm 23 if that makes a difference.    (also, trying not to break the bank, looking for something similar in price range as well)

Products
Two months ago on a weekend most things showed "Can't be shipped to Canada" and lateron we were given a surprise of Canadian warehouse with limited products access. Now Every single product of many brands is gone OOS,,,what we should expect now. I just checked the brands which interest me personally and following Brands are totally OOS Alterna Algenist Atelier Cologne ABH Bite Bio Ionic Burberry Bumble and Bumble, Buxom Clinique Dr Brandt DDG Dior Estee Lauder Fresh Georgio Armani GlamGlow Guerlain hourglass Jurlique KVD Lancome MUFE Murad Marc Jacob  Nars Ren Tarte T3 Tria Tom Ford Shishedo Smashbox UD YSL     These are the only ones I checked. No idea whaich others are gone. Is it such a hardship to inform us before time when some massive changes are going on? 
Hair
I used Redken Color Extend Magnetics for a while and noticed increased hair loss, so I tried Nexxus Color shampoo/conditioner. The Nexxus caused very little hair loss, but it didn't clean my hair and left it weighed down and feeling dirty.   So, I tried Living Proof products and my hair is majorly falling out , so much that other people notice and I can see my scalp! I'm freaking out and looking to try new shampoo/conditioner (obviously) but am afraid yet another product line/ingredients will make it worse. Seriously, as in clumps of hair stuck in the drain, on the floor, and falling out while I am just sitting at my computer at work...OMG. I'm probably sensitive/allergic to something in it and no, allergy testing is not an option (too expensive).   What products will help my hair regrow and look less thin, and also help it look volumized asap? I know it will take a while to grow it back. My hair in general is very fine, straight, and tends to hang no matter what I use, so I don't really mind just want my hair back. I am so sad and self-conscious about this.

Hi!  I'm stuck home after back surgery so can't get out to my Sephora.  I'm looking for a new foundation to cover/fill in acne scars.  I have a great primer but need foundation.  Here's my info: I'm naturally very fair with cool pink undertones but use self-tanner so not sure if that would effect the undertone of the foundation I pick. I want my face to match my neck with self-tanner on it.  I think if I get a foundation with pink undertones it won't match the yellow in the tanner.  I have combo skin, oily t-zone.  I'm 53 and I take good care of my skin so wrinkles aren't an issue.  To recap: need foundation to cover acne scars (some deep); what color/undertone should I get to work with the tone self-tanner makes my skin? I'm looking at Estée Lauder Extreme Wear (I think that's what it's called) or Kat Von D but I'm open to ANY suggestions. Phew!  Ty so much for helping me!  Being stuck at home sucks...especially when you wanna makeup shop!

I need advice on skin care that works for a 36 year old that still has acne. Not only do I still have problems with acne, I'm now in my 30s and don't want to create wrinkles. My skin is olive and tends have dark spots where blemishes have been. I also have dark spots along my jaw line which are new in the last couple of years. I'm sure a lot of it is related to stress and hormones, but neither one of those things are going away. I've tried pretty much everything including Obagi. It seems that things people have recommended have either focused on improving the dark spots and made the acne worse or vice versa. Isn't there something out there that can effectively treat both? Any suggestions?

Antiaging
Looking for advice for a new skincare routine. My routine since I was a teen has been face wash, moisturizer, sunscreen and drink lots of water. I've never invested much and my skin has always been fine, until now. Recently I've noticed a few lines on my forehead and redness/ruddiness on my cheeks (next to my nose only). I've trolled the BT boards and am totally overwhelmed! I'd love some advice. I have normal to dry skin that is sensitive to strong products. I'd like to lose these forehead wrinkles. I've become obsessed with checking out other people's foreheads ever since I noticed mine.  Please help!

So I just picked up some of the UD.com exclusive Revolution shades, and I was looking around for a place to post swatches and realized (thanks guzelkiz!) that Urban Decay was not yet represented among the various brand threads. A travesty! So here it is.   The shades I picked up are Protest and Matte Carnal. I was afraid they would be dupes of things, because I apparently tend to buy the same-ish shades of nude/muted colors over and over.   The good news, they're not! Both are close to things I have, but they're not exact dupes, at least in natural light.   Here's Protest, between NARS Audacious Anita on the left, and Raquel on the right, with Jane underneath. It's close, but it's still warmer than Anita and darker than Raquel, so score!     Here's Carnal, between Jeffree Star Celebrity Skin on the left and NARS Audacious Jane on the right. Again, close, but warmer than CS and darker than Jane.     Anybody grab the other UD.com exclusives yet?

Acne
Am I going crazy or does it seem like everything is slowly becoming OOS on Sephora.ca.        Pretty much nearly the whole website looks like this on my computer.    The Burberry makeup still had lots of items in stock last night and now today all the makeup is OOS. Same with many other brands.   Any other Canadians seeing this on their Sephora too?     Accidentally posted under skincare/acne LOL oops.
