Bite Lip Wipes
I just spotted this on Temptalia....      They are 10 for $12 or 30 for $22...    I just... why? Why would you spend over (or almost) a dollar for a lip wipe? Am I missing something here? Are we too good for a spitty tissue to wipe off mistakes or stain?

Bad breakouts lately...help!
I have very oily acne prone skin and I have been breaking out pretty bad recently on my cheeks, chin, and along my jawline. I'm not sure if it's just 1 product that's breaking me out or my whole routine.  I'm currently using in the morning: first aid beauty facial cleanser, clean&clear essentials deep cleaning toner for sensitive skin, and the murad oil control mattifier. In the evening: same cleanser and toner, loreal revitalift serum, josie maran argan oil light, and twice a week I use the dr. jart pore medic @ home peel, and benzoyl peroxide as a spot treatment when needed The breakouts are pretty large and not just 1 or 2 at a time but several, I haven't had a breakout like this in a long time...so frustrating! Anyway are there other products I should try instead? I want to use gentle products and products that won't cause my oily skin to overreact. I would also like to incorporate as much drugstore products as possible! Thank you all!

Will foundation primer interfere with the benefits of my foundation serum?
Hi beauties, I'm thinking of giving foundation primer a try. Currently I am using Perricone No Foundation Foundation Serum and I adore how it looks and feels - it just doesn't seem to stay on all day, thus bringing me to my two questions:  will a primer help the foundation stay on longer and will using a primer interfere with the anti aging and skin benefits of the foundation serum?     Oh and I was thinking of beginning my primer experience with Laura Mercier because I have a deluxe sample size. Thoughts?

Hello! I'm looking to redo my regimen to use gentler products. I have acne prone skin with a significant amount of discoloration from my hormonal breakouts. I've been using Kate Somerville for years but it doesn't seem to be working for me anymore, so I want to switch to another line that is gentler. I am looking for a cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and sunscreen

YSL Foundation Help
I love the YSL Touche Eclat foundation but I can't find the right color. I've tried Beige 10 (its to light) and Beige Dore 10 (slightly to dark that its noticeable even when well blended). Any suggestions? My best match is the Estee Lauder Double Wear Light in 1.0. A lot of paler are people are wearing B30? Is it lighter than the ones I mentioned?

DIY Matte lips - What am I doing wrong?
I tried to achieve a matte lips look with loose powder (LM translucent powder) over a tissu (and half a tissu) and when I removed tissu, the result is matte but all color seem to stay on the tissu instead of my lips. So, I'd like to get some trick to get this look without buying (again) other lipsticks. Thanks!!!

SKINCARE ROUTINE
hi there! I have a big time skincare regime question. I have oily to combination skin. VERY sensitive and very acne prone. I do not have a lot of acne anymore, but any little irritation of a new skincare or makeup product will cause me to breakout. I also have some dark spots and light acne scarring from the past. I am currently using "exuviance" facewash and night cream. Can anyone recommend a morning and night time routine with me including products that will help to keep my skin clear and help diminish fine lines, and dark spots/scarring? I would greatly appreciate it!

PSA: Sephora is updating their return policy
I was in Sephora today and my cashier let me know that they will be updating their return policy. I don't know whether this is Canada-only and when it will take effect.   Whenever the new policy takes effect, when you return items without a receipt you will have to do it as an exchange only. No more store credit. I asked her what happens if the sum of the items you are exchanging for does not match the original price of the item you are exchanging, and she said that it pretty much has to be a perfect straight exchange, otherwise its going to be our loss.   So, either exchange for the same sum, or for something more expensive.    I really don't understand Sephora's beef with their own gift cards (/store credit). If I'm getting store credit, of course I'm going to be spending that money on Sephora, whether it's going to be at that same moment, or in a week or two.

WANT INEXPENSIVE BB/CC/TINTED MOISTURIZER BASE FOR AT HOME WEAR
Dear All,   Since I turned 40 I have been hyper sensitive about my uneven and oftentimes dull skin tone. As I have 6 children (who all bring their friends inside) + an 18 year old au pair (with perfect youthful skin), I can no longer bear to reveal my bare facial skin in the house.   I have tried several Loreal options, but none seem to have the coverage/glow giving properties I desire (they do however work miracles for my teenage daughters). I've also tried Clinique's CC cream, but my under eyes still look dark, which is incredibly ageing; similar story with Estee Lauder's CC Cream.   I love Estee Lauders Double Wear All Day Glow BB Cream for going out in the warmer months, but would ideally like something better priced for the house ...   Any ideas? Do any of you wear a base in the house?

Hello friends!

My wonderful, yet crazy, skincare regime!   I am EXTREMELY interested in seeing what your skincare regime is as I am new to the Advice Talks!   I definitely look forward to seeing the different combinations of products and also looking to see what other products I could potentially use!   I love Skincare! It's the best!   Michael, xo
