Just purchased this product tonight. I've heard great thing about the Hourglass line. Would love to hear from anyone who has tried this
Hair
Just purchased the AgaVE Smoothing Trio & cannot wait to use it in the morning! I've been using Living Proof No Frizz & Perfect Hair day but went on the suggestion of the Sephora rep. Anyone out here in BT land try this set? If so, I'd love to hear your thoughts

Hello! I have a question I am sure is asked a lot. I am having trouble finding a foundation, well kind of. I was matched in store for MUFE Mat Velvet+ in No. 20 Ivory. I do really like this foundation but since its summer I went back in to find something a bit lighter looking and a more natural finish. (I have Combo Skin that gets oily through the day on the forehead). I was matched with the tool they have now and was told I was 2Y04. Well now I am really lost, how do I know what color I am and how do I go about finding a shade for me with out having to go and try them all on and not get pushed into one I don't really like. When I go to find my color matches through the foundation I already have it comes up with 1R03 and a totally different set of colors. Now I have also gotten my hands on MUFE HD in 115 Ivory and it also looks good on me. So If you can help me out I would much appreciate it. 
Makeup
Just got an email from UD's website stating free shipping on anything. Also free deluxe samples with a perversion mascara purchase. Didn't specify when it ends. 
All Other Concerns
My Dr's office has infrared saunas and I was wondering if anyone here has used them.  What does it feel like?  How long did you use one and did you see any benefits?   For those will ask, infrared saunas are supposed to: - remove toxins through increased circulation and sweating - burns as many calories as 30 minutes of jogging - clears cellulite - reduces stress and fatigue - improves acne and appearance of wrinkles

Just thot id share what works best for me.  I use the mia in the morning in the shower with my sheshido cleanser, thus avoiding getting makeup in the brush head.  Then I use the luna at night with my estee lauder cream cleanser.  The silicone bristles are a cinch to clean make up off.  I j u st lather some bath/body works antibacterial soap on it and it cleans right up.  I would love to hear other suggestions on this.  I will say my skin is glowing because im getting the best of both worlds!

I'm heading to NYC for the weekend and want to check out New London Pharmacy since I hear they are more similar to French pharmacy with the quality of products they have and the brands (including Bioderma!). I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for brands I should check out outside of the usual suspects (e.g. La Roche-Posay, Nuxe, Lumene, etc.).
Makeup
I wear Sand Beige in Laura Mercier Silk Cream Foundation and G40/50 in Cover FX Full Coverage Creme Foundation. Any clue what my match would be for the Sensual Skin Enhancer??
All Other Skincare Concerns
My skin is very oily/combo and has large pores. I also have redness and hyper pigmentation all over my face. I've tried samples of both Murad's and Clinque's products, and none of them have stung my face. However, both are pretty expensive ($50~~~) and I don't want to buy both because a) too much money and b) I don't want to overwhelm my skin with a slew of skincare products.    I know Clinique can target anything that's wrong with your skin, while Murad's hydrator can only do so much. Has anyone tried both these products enough to recommend one over the other?

Face
Hi There - I'm currently using the estee lauder double wear foundation in Ecru 1n2, however I realize now its too light for my skin tone. I did the color IQ in sephora back in January and was matched to 1Y07, and i found that the estee lauder match to that code was Fresco 2C3. Just by looking at the Fresco shade i know it might be too pink for my skin tone. I am definitely neutral even though I find the veins in my wrists quite blue. My face has some pink undertone but id like to match my foundation to my neck and it is definitely more neutral and not pink. Looking for suggestions on what shades you might think would work for me? I understand the "7" is a medium shade. I was looking at the desert beige 2n1, or the dawn beige 2w1 or the rattan 2w2. thank you!!
Eyes
Hi Everyone!  I used to LOVE MAC's SplashProof Lash Mascara and i LOVE IT!  It stays on, and looks amazing but they discontinued it.  I've tried their Waterproof Zoom Lash and the other one they have but both seem dry and just like theres not enough going on and i try to put on quite a few coats, any suggestions on something comparable to SplashProof?

I need a recommendation for a moisturizer or moisturizer regimen for someone that is acne prone. I have oily skin but with pretty dry patches.
All Other Concerns
Hi, I am trying to decide between the Tria and the Me Smooth. The most important thing for me is to use it on my face, but I would also like to use whatever I get on my legs. So even if the Me is quicker and easier for legs, if it doesn't work well for the face due to being larger I don't think it would be right for me. Has anyone used the Me for the face? Thanks for your input.

Hello Everyone! I was just wondering if anyone has ever heard of this brand , specifically the  Bioelements Stress Solution?  Just wondering b/c I have never heard of it. I bought a serum type lotion from FAB (FAB Anti-Redness) a/b a month + or so (haven't tried it), & have since read some new reviews and so on  that make me think it's not gonna work out. So, I'm looking for a replacement here (maybe the 3 Little Wonders Set or the PTR Set, idk which would be best) & this just caught my eye while checking my E-mails.  Any thoughts or experience w/ Bioelements? Thanks in advance!

Yup! Apparently all models, except the Pro model, have a free engraving offer if you purchase through Clarisonic! Just saw it on their website.    It made me wonder what people have asked to have engraved on their Clarisonics.......so....   What name would you have engraved on your Clarisonic? I think this could be a lot of fun.   I'm undecided, but "U Can't Touch This" and "Please **kssweetheart** Don't Hurt Em!' are both contenders (both MC Hammer references)   How about you guys and gals?

Does this work well for anyone? I know it's new and there aren't any reviews.......but I am interested in this and was wondering if anyone has purchased this and has a thought about this product.
Face Q&A
Hi all!   I'm considering buying the girgio armani luminous silk foundation - but I haven't completely understood how the color shades are organized for the foundation? What foundation shades do you suggest for someone who is a color match of 4y07 from sephora?   Other foundations I have matched in: Laura Mercier Silk Creme: Bamboo Beige Makeup forever HD Foundation: 127 Dark Sand (though not as yellow as my actual undertone - it was the closest I could get though) Lancome Teint Miracle: Bisque 4W

I absolutely love the brown color in this pallet for contouring(sultry)  The only problem is that I used it up so quickly(just the one color).....does anyone know what product I can buy that would be just the brown color similar to the one in this pallet?  I've searched quite a bit but just am not sure what to buy!   I am using the Sultry pallet http://www.sephora.com/microsmooth-baked-sculpting -contour-trio-P378685?skuId=1483619&icid2=Contouri ...

i have a fair indian skin tone with warm undertone. Could you please help me in finding a foundation and concealer for my skin tone.
Hair
Just curious to see if anyone's used Macadamia Natural Oil's Flawless? It's supposedly like Wen. Wen didn't work for my oily scalp and dry ends, but I'm still drawn to trying this with the promise of bouncy hair (just did some bad damage to my hair this week from coloring). Anyone have experience with it or heard good things?
Lips
Has aura changed their aura lip stain colors? The flush I bought by mail is lighter than the last two tubes I bought.
