Acne
I need help finding a new face cleansing product. I have been using Bliss Clog Dissolving Cleansing Milk for at least five years and I love it but it doesn't seem to be available at Sephora anymore. Any suggestions? I am in my early forties and my main concerns are acne, oily ski and anti aging. My skin is still prone to breakouts especially if I use the wrong products.

I just purchased the Eradikate by Kate Somerville acne treatment and I'm a little bit confused about how to use it. I understand that you don't shake it and dab it on your face with a Q-tip, however;   a) is it used like a spot treating mask where you wash it off after 10-15 mins? b) if not, do you put it on before or after moisturizer and how long do you let it sit for? c) if I were to leave it over night (and say it I apply it before moisturizer) would the rest of my face not get really dry from not having put moisturizer on prior?   Thank you!

Image from Temptalia.   When I first saw this my visceral reaction was "I'm getting this" but after looking at it for a few minutes I'm thinking I'm going to pass on this because UD just keeps tweaking a few of their colors and putting them in every single palette.  Looking at you half-baked.   At this point, I think I'd rather get the Smashbox double exposure palette than another iteration of a Naked palette.  I'm wondering if anyone else is as disenfranchised with the Naked palettes as I am?  I skipped #3 and all the basics, and I think I'm skipping this one, too.

I wear Nars Stromboli. What shade would be in Smashbox Studio Skin?
Combo / Normal
That's right. I'm 25 yrs old and all I've ever used on my face is Dove Bar soap. No moisturizer, eye creams, exfoliaters, etc. I'm pretty confused on what products to use and what order to use these products.   Do i use: cleanser, face mask, toner, moisturizer? How often do I use a facial scrub? I have large pores on my nose, how do i fix that? I do have my eye on a few things that I want to try out from the website.   Some more specifics about my skin 1. I have a oily t zone and eye lids. Rest of my face is normal. 2. Some acne scars on my fore head. Just a few small spots. 3. Faint crows feet 4. I'm having a minor breakout right now on my fore head and a little bit on my temples. It's a little bit red, but skin toned bumps? (I'm African American)   Thank you!

Beauty Confessions
Does anyone else have this problem? No matter who waxes my eye brows, my skin scabs. And I mean pretty much every time. And it's not because the wax is too hot. It's not. I've even had people try to prep my skin beforehand. Nope. Still scabs. So I have to get threaded or plucked. I thread because I really love the way it looks (painful though!).   Am I the weirdo here? 'Cause I feel like I'm the weirdo.

I just purchased the Cover FX Custom Drops. I have really dry skin, fine lines and large poor's. Wow what a combo HAHA. Now that these drops have been out for a while, I was wondering what mixes have worked best for you. I have tired mixing the drops with Argon Oil and that separated on me badly. I also tried it with the FAB moisture cream and that did the same thing. Any suggestions?

Urban Decay is coming out with a Smokey Palette slated to hit the market July 8th. Unlike the other palettes this one will have a range of colors to create every smokey eye you want. Here's the link to the story so are you going to buy or no? https://www.yahoo.com/beauty/cue-the-frenzy-theres -a-new-naked-palette-120529402888.html   Sorry I didn't see that this was posted in acne. Is that the default catergory??

Hi! I need a full coverage foundation for oily skin. It needs to withstand Texas heat and sweating. I currently am using Clarins but I can't find a right color and it seems to be fading as the day goes on. I prime with Smashbox and set with IT mineral veil pore minimizer! Any help is appreciated!
All Other Concerns
Hi- I'm curious if you have any advice (products or otherwise) about what to do. I think I may have a scar around my eyebrow from waxing. I only recently started to "really" notice it, but as I look back at pictures (as far back as 2 years ago), I can see it starting to form. It looks like scar tissue to me...faded but noticeable. Any thoughts on how to heel it or at least fade it? I go to a place that uses the soft purple wax and don't ever remember a particular a "burn". I wonder if this is just something that developed over time? It's to the point that it's all I see every time I look in the mirror. It doesn't hurt- it's just more an embarrassment issue. Foundation doesn't really cover it up. Thanks for your advice.

Two weeks ago I pumped out the last few drops of my foundation and I never knew the fortnight ahead would be so troublesome #firstworldproblems   I am a 2Y07 according to color IQ but since I contour using warmer colors, I prefer to buy 2Y06 or lighter   The bottle I emptied was MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Invisible Cover Foundation Color 127 Dark Sand - for medium skin with yellow undertones (and that is neither the match for 2Y07 nor 2Y06). It was making me a little too yellow and oily (now that summer is back in the Carolinas). So I decided to go shop for a new foundation - but without success!   Searching my foundation online I start with: My skin type is oily. I am 29 years old. Got post acne scars - so need medium to full coverage. Ingredients: OIL-FREE for sure   I walked into Sephora and told the beauty advisor the above pre-requisites. She put on Hourglass Illusion® Hyaluronic Skin Tint Color Sand - medium with pink undertones (which looked medium coverage in store - probably because of amount and tools she used, she did not apply primer or setting powder). I was very happy with the dewy look but next day used it and found it to be too sheer for me.   Walk into another Sephora: she said Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup Oil Free Broad Spectrum SPF 15 No. 1 - Ivory ( SkinTone match for # 2Y06) will be very white for me AND Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation Mattifying Oil Free will be very mattifying and will not give the dewy/radiant look   We tried Smashbox Liquid Halo HD Foundation SPF 15 ( Color 2 - warm vanilla for fair/light complexions ) on one half of my face AND NARS Sheer Glow Foundation Color Vallauris - medium with pink undertones on another. The color for NARS matched my skin tone perfectly and I walked out happy but once hope I realized it doesn't have a pump and isn't as medium/full a coverage as I want.   I have ordered Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation SPF 15 Color Beige but I wanted to ask all you beautiful women for your expert advice.   If Bobbi Brown's coverage/color doesn't work out I will go back to MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Invisible Cover Foundation Color 118 Flesh - for light skin with beige undertones.   (also, if you suggest a color, please note I use NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer Color Custard - yellow tone for light to medium complexion for triangle of light - so I want my foundation lighter than 2Y07 but darker than custard/nars concealer).   Thank you for your time, Aaks

Hi all!  I am using color shade 4Y05 for foundation and dye my hair blonde.  I am looking for natural looking lipstick but that doesn't have so much gloss so that when wind blows my hair doesn't get stuck to my lips.  I was looking for something light pinkish or even nude, but that looks natural and pretty.  Any and all suggestions would be great!  Thanks.

Sephora is my favorite store and website of course, but if I could make just one improvement, they would carry Nyx products! My Nyx products are the only cosmetics I do not buy from Sephora, I really wish I could.   With that being said, what are your favorite Nyx Products? I have the PhotoFinish Primer and about 9 of the Soft Matte Lip Creams. I also have about 6 lip pencils, which I think are just as good as the MAC lip liners. It feels good to be able to buy about 5-6 Nyx lip liners for the price you could buy just one MAC lip liner for.   What products do you recommend from Nyx? And do you consider any of these products "dupes?"
