Sephora Sun Safety Kit for 2015 (Pictures)
Hi guys! I rarely share blog posts on here, but I thought this would be useful for anyone who wanted to look at the sizes of the products in the Sephora Sun Safety Kit.   I think this is an awesome deal and you get a wide variety of products. Enjoy!   http://makeupbypatriciam.blogspot.com/2015/05/seph ora-favorites-sun-safety-kit-2015.html

Warm weather = new concerns
Hello ladies, Hope you all are enjoying the warm weather! So warm weather means exposing more skin (no not mini skirts or naked) and everyone wants healthy, radiant, clean skin.   I am on this high to buy new products or add products to my regiment. So my goal is to get healthy, radiant, even toned skin and not have to use make-up (yet). I am 24 and I am currently using these products: before going to sleep, I wash my face using Tatcha Pure Step Camellia Cleansing Oil (every so often I use my Clarisonic but I was also thinking of getting a new one soon since mine is a little beat up), then I use Peter Thomas Roth Gentle Complexion Correction Pads, then I put Caudalie's Polyphenol C15 Overnight Detox Oil. In the morning I use facial wipes (like by Simple), then I apply the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum and at last I put First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration.    All of these products have helped me battle dryness during the winter season and I will definitely be buying them again. But I feel like there is something else that can help me with my concerns: acne (rare as it is), the scarring and just the overall health and radiance of my skin. I can definitely say that my skin has improved but usually around my period, I break out and the area I usually break out is around the chin area.    What I am looking for is products that will not dry my face out, help even out my tone, get rid of acne, blemishes and scarring, anti-aging (? not sure if it's too early but I have been using products that I am pretty sure fight aging), softness and hydration.   I am interested in oils, toners, cleansers (having one for the night and morning since I find it hard to use the Tatcha on the Clarisonic). Anything you ladies recommend, I am eager to look up and try if it will work for me. Thank you!

Difference between Origins Charcoal Mask and Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment
I've tried samples of the Origins Charcoal Mask and I bought the Glamglow Supermud mask a few months ago. I really love the Glamglow mask but it is a little on the expensive side. Before I repurchase it, I was just wondering if there are any major differences between the two masks?

Celestial Powder - Price per Ounce
Some time ago I posted about checking blush prices based on the actual price per ounce.   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Products/Blush-Pri ces-per-Ounce-can-be-Surprising/m-p/1459734#M13215   More recently, I was intrigued by the Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Powder in Candlelight.  It costs $44, which sounded about the same as the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder.    Then I noticed that many reviews noted the tiny size of the product.  So I did some comparisons:   -Hourglass Ambient is 0.35 oz for $45, or $129 per oz. -Guerlain Meteorites Compact is 0.35 for $62, or $177 per oz.  -Kevyn Aucoin Celestial is 0.11 oz for $44, or $400 per oz!   What is this powder made of, jewel dust?  It's off my list.

Georgio Armani Foundation
I received a sample of Luminous Silk and just love it. My color id in this foundation is 5. However, I'm intrigued by Maestro Fusion (id is 5.5) and Designer Lift also, but neither of these are available in stores within 100 miles.   My questions are these: 1. how do I compare these 3? how do I know which one I should choose? 2. what color should I get in Designer Lift should I choose to purchase this one?

Nail polish "assistor"
I bought a little metal device when I was on holiday in Prague from one of your stores and it is supposed to help put nail polish on so that it doesn't go over the nail. It is absolutely useless and I ended up putting it to the side and doing my nails as normal.   I have no idea how you are supposed to position your hands so that no polish goes on the skin at the side of the nails using this and really, most people will have nails that are longer than the top of their fingers so the pictures on the pack are silly as it isn't needed for that part of the nail for the most part. One of my nails had broken and the finger couldn't rest comfortably against the device so the polish ended up going on the skin at the top of that nail!   Any advice on how to use this would be appreciated as the girl in the store either couldn't be bothered showing me or didn't speak enough English to help. I personally think she couldn't be bothered as she could speak enough English to tell me about offers and try to sell me stuff! We don't have stores in the UK so it's not like I can even return it.

Shiseido Shimmering Rouge PK415
Anyone used this?  I want to find this color but in a larger diameter.  This lipstick has a very small diameter making it run out so fast.  The color is perfect. http://www.sephora.com/shimmering-rouge-P280945?sk uId=1405513 Thanks!!

Switching over to Biodroga MD
Hello guys im going to switch brand from Paulas Choice to Biodroga most because i dont like their PC spf Moisturizers  i use one for sensitive skin right now with spf 30 and with the retinol super antioxidant serum and it **bleep** up my skin. I used that serum with another daycream and never had any problem at all.    I like that serum but in the same time its a silicone serum that can cause break outs. Maybe i stick with it as a night serum maybe not.     Anyway anyone in here who tried Biodroga MD Skin Booster Uv-Protection Cream Spf 30 or 50? I want hydration on my skin and im planing to buy it with the BIODROGA MD SKIN BOOSTER Advanced Formula Vitamin C Concentrate 15 serum you think that will give me enough hydration because i want the spf factor or should i buy an extra   Biodroga MD Perfect Hydration 24-h Care or    Biodroga MD ANTI-AGE Collagen Boost Day Care and switch over to lets say the Biodroga MD Skin Booster intense Moisture serum .     Im asking because Paulas Choice spf 30 moisture **bleep**ed up my skin and i dont liker their moisturizers at all my skin dosen´t feel hydrated more dry and sticky like an irritating glue so yeah no now i switch over to Biodroga MD instead.   So whats your advice?

CANE + AUSTIN Body Retexture Pads
I was wondering if anyone here has experience with the Cane+Austin Body Retexture Pads.     I'm looking for a body product that contains a chemical exfoliant and  I want to stay away from heavy moisturizers, so I thought that these pads might be a good option.  Unfortunately they're pretty expensive for experimentation purposes.     I'd also be open to suggestions for other products.   Thanks!

Crepey cheeks and oily skin
I am 45 in one week! I have just noticed "crosshatch" crepey skin on my cheeks. I have combination skin and most antiaging products cause me to break out in blemishes. I currently use alpha hydroxy acid and salcidic (sp?) acid in light lotions plus mineral sunscreen by Olay every day. If I put anything other than the salcidic acid on at night I wake up to zits...I use this to control blemishes, fade sun marks, and reduce fine lines. I still have pretty good skin tone so I don't use foundation...I don't like the added color nor do I like having makeup on my entire face. I am religious about my sunscreen. Is there anything I can do to take care of my middle age skin that won't cause me to breakout? This new crepey crosshatch stuff is alarming! Just part of aging?

Guerlain Rouge G Rose Collection
Hi ladies,   I found one of the Lipsticks from Guerlain -  73  Rose Ensoleille Rouge G Lipstick.   It was part of spring 2012 collection and I liked the color. When I checked the batch code it's made in "August 2011".   Is it okay to buy it because I am concerned about the shelf life. Thanks for  your inputs

Nudestix concealer and sculpting pencils
I bought a nudestix sculpting pencil in the lightest shade, I was wondering if the sculpting side of the pencil is a similar color to one of the concealers. I want to try one but am unsure what color to order. I would most likely have to order one that is two to three shades lighter than the sculpting side of the pencil.     If it will help my sephora color id is 2R04 (Sephora teint infusion #14) or 2R05 (Clinque beyond perfecting foundation and concealer in Alabaster)  depending on the products.
