I love buying beautiful powders, and the fact that they perform well is a bonus. However, most of the time the beauty is on the powder itself and goes awway after use.....but it look so pretty on the face it's a shame not to use it......but it look so gorgeous in the pan it is a shame to ruin the embossing/color.....   The item in question for me is Guerlain Parure de Nuit, which I KNOW I won't be able to finish in the next 3 years if I use it. It's already a bit smeared after a few use and I'd hate to ruin the gorgeous peacock pattern. I kind of want a back up so I can use my current one without worry, but it's produced at least a year ago and buying a $50+ something that I might not use for another 2 or 3 years is......   Do you ever have such dilemma? Back up of something pretty just so you can use the current one without guilt?

Just curious on what everyone's favorite tool for foundation application is.    I swear by my beauty blender, but I've never used a brush, other than for powder foundations like bare minerals.

I've been on the market for a contour kit for a while now, its practically the only item i do not own. I was excited for the ABH contour kit to come out, since they have two shade options, but i've only heard mixed reviews. Maybe my mind is just intimidated by the apparent darkness of some of the darker shades in some of these kits, but has anyone else had any luck?

I have used so many eye cream and under eye primers and nothing seems to work. My concealer always seems to crease or looking cake. I have been using nars creamy concealer with the banana setting powder and everyone seems to love it but me. I have extremely dry skin, but I have a good skincare regimen that I like besides a under eye cream. Any techniques or products to help??

I know we have a thread where we' talk about being healthier and such, and much like the challenges for makeup, this will be a challenge for exercise. Today I finally decided "Enough of this slugging around."        I just finished one mile  at a 3 mile speed and switching to 2.5 once in a while.    So I won't title this 30 day challenge, but I will aim for 30 days and keep going from there, hopefully.   Day 1 - 2/26/2015 - One mile on the treadmill - Duration: 25 minutes

The 100 pt Marc Jacobs highliner in black was listed under the rewards boutique recently, but now it's no longer there. Does anyone have the link for it?

Hi everyone, so I was wondering if someone could help me find the best foundation for me. I have very dry skin yet its also very oily. I also have acne and lots of acne scaring. When I wear a foundation or BB cream my skin always ends up peeling underneath of the foundation no matter how much moisturizer I use. I also want it to cover up my scars and blemishes but not be too thick. I really want to find a foundation that will cover everything I want it to, not crack up, wear all day, and not look caked. Thanks!
Acne
Hi! In the Nars concealer, I'm the shade Honey. It's a bit too pink for me and I want to try out the MUFE concealer, mostly because it has a WAY better shade selection. I'm normally light-medium and have constantly rosy cheeks, so the concealer needs to be around neutral-warm for it to be natural-looking at all!  Any help? -Katie

Hey ladies! I have a quick question, and I was hoping you all could help! I have combo skin with dry patches on my cheeks, and am acne prone on my chin. I use the  Dr Dennis Gross peel once or twice a week, , and follow it with fresh seaberry oil. My cheeks are still pretty dry the next day. Is it okay to follow the peel with a Sephora Honey or Pearl sheet mask? I just don't want to over-process my skin, but I do want to mousiest uprise more.    Thanks!

I have pale skin with cool undertone (Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Foundation 42). I need something that won't glitter like crazy but give me a nice shine. I was thinking about getting the Shiseido Medusa Highlighter (which I'd have to order in Canada since it was discontinued). Thanks.

Acne
I picked this brush up the other day along with the new Nars foundation - after I attended a "Flawless Foundation" class at Sephora. I LOVE those classes, I can't say enough good things, besides I wish their were more, more often!! I am really enjoying the brush - it blends flawlessly, uses less product and its a serious multi-tasker!! I am able to get ready so much quicker with this brush because I don't have to get wet, its large enough to cover your face quickly, and soft enough for the eyes, etc. Has anyone else picked this brush up - or have you attended class? What do you think?! I made a demo video and review of the brush for those who want more info!!! http://youtu.be/7kaBWczCqOc

Is the white and the black version the same package? It's confusing. Also, with that tray, you do your top teeth first and then the bottom or just put the mouthpiece in your mouth? How often do you need to redo the treatment? in other words, after you do the first set of treatments, how long does it last? Anyone have any firsthand experience?

I am 17 and I am currently battling acne, the breakouts usually occur on my cheeks and I've been using Tretinoin Cream to treat it. However I still have a lot of blemishes and I fear scarring like crazy, so is there anything that i can use on my oily combination skin?
Skincare Stories
I have normal-combination and I need a mattiying moisturizer for my super shiny Tzone.  Any suggestions for a moisturizer to keep me matte all day?
Combo / Normal
So I spoke to my sister this afternoon and she complained that she's breaking out really badly and can't figure out why, since she's washing her face and hasn't been wearing any makeup lately.  She DOES tend to sleep in her makeup, which she knows is a big no-no, but that's not where the problem is.  My sisters and I were blessed with clear skin (aside from the occasional zit), so the fact that she's breaking out horribly (other than being 30 and possibly being a hormonal shift) is not normal.   She said she's washing her face in the shower, which is fine, except for the fact that she has hard water.  The hard water doesn't help your skin.  Then she says her skin feels greasy all the time lately too.  She currently uses the First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser and from what I experienced when I used it, I'm getting the feeling it's stripping her skin of moisture and  lipids....which is obviously going to make your skin overproduce oil to counteract the loss.   So, does anyone have a good suggestion for a cleanser she could use?  She can't use Josie Moran at all.  Clinique maybe, but this is difficult since she has such sensitive, dry skin like I do.  A lot of cleansers I would suggest for her won't work for skin like they have on mine.  I do plan on getting her a Mia for her birthday in April though, so if she wants to continue washing her face in the shower, that'll help.

Is matte or dewy / glow make up in for 2015?   Right now i use do not use foundation, but use some bronzer / blush with a little face powder over it to set.  Its more of a matte look.  If a dewy look is in, how would i get that?  Do i need to drop the face powder? I feel like it does keep the blush bronzer better throughout the day. Thanks

I am 21 and suffer from minor breakouts and oily skin in my t-zone area. I have been using Proactiv for almost 10 years now and I am noticing that my skin seems dependent on it. I want to step away from that, but I am nervous in doing so.   What your skin care routine and what products do you use and suggest?   I've watched my share of Youtube videos, but I'm at a crossroads on what to actually try.    Thank you!

Hi you Bite fanatics! So we already have a discussion on the released colors here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Makeup/Bite-Lip-La b-Sephora-color-of-the-month/td-p/1847087 but I wanted us to have a place to discuss what colors we were hoping would be released. For instance, what color would put you over the edge to make a purchase? For me, I would really love to see a sheer black.... or something similar to Givenchy Liv's Lips, or Lipstick Queen's Hello Sailor. I think that would be pretty amazing!! Especially if it's a Bite formula. Basically, I won't buy colors that are very common or easily dupe-able. Also, as a sidenote, it'd be really cool if people who went to the Bite Lip Lab could somehow figure out what the color formula is for the limited releases... It would look something like this, I guess: Formula: Creme Deluxe Scent: ? Flavor:? Colors: 2/3 Scarlet, 1/3 Tannin (just an example)

I am interested in trying the Hourglass concealer as coverage for occasional pimple but not sure which shade. I am 49, light brown hair and hazel eyes...pretty fair but do not like to use makeup so a natural look would be my preference

My mascara ALWAYS rubs off of my lower lashes and onto the skin below my eyes and creates a "raccoon eye" effect...not cute. Any tips to keep this from happening?

Hair
I have very thick hair and it takes a very long time to blow dry my hair. I need some sort of spray or balm to put in it to make this process go faster. I know it's out there I just don't know what it's called or where to find it. I was hoping sephora would have something I'm looking for but I can't seem to come up with anything. I don't have the time to let my hair dry naturally. Thank you.
