I'm sure just as many of you are, I'm grateful and happy to pick a nice promo along with my purchase when there's one I want and I qualify. Since the promos haven't sparked so much enthusiasm, I'm looking forward to what I think is coming up next... That's the pick 5 samples! Last year, sephora had an option to pick 5 luxe samples- a great way to try those luxe products before we buy! I'm hoping this year they will offer something similar.    After the pick 5 samples is Chic Week!!! So here's to good vibes and more shopping!!! There's still plenty of promo codes out there in the meantime and probab a few more to come. But here's to some other ways sephora keeps my skincare/makeup drawers ready for more!

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

Hi everyone! I'm looking for a new concealer and stumbled across the MUFE Full Cover concealer. I have my Nars concealer, but it's a bit too pink for me in the shade Honey. Any swatches for light-medium neutral skin? If you have full swatches, that would be great, too! -Katie

I have always been curious about the Hairfinity supplements but never felt I could shed 24$+shipping (to Canada) for one bottle that is supposed to last only one month. But if it REALLY works, it can be worth trying... Has anyone taken the Hairfinity Supplements ? What are your thoughts ? did you have any side effects ?   Thanks

I am completely new to hair extensions and need some help! I recently cut my hair just above my shoulders, which I am not fond of. I have been thinking of ordering hair extensions.   Has anyone bought from My Fantasy Hair? I like what they have thus far as they have different lengths. I want either 14" or 16". Would 150 grams be enough? I obviously would not want it to look tacky looking like I do have extensions in.    If someone could help me out I would really appreciate it as I am a COMPLETE newbie!!!! Thanks

I'm curious about the Drybar buttercup blowdryer and specifically looking into getting the new set with the dryer, the dry shampoo, and heat protecting serum...It's a total of 205$ which is like unthinkable for me, can anyone share their thoughts with me on the dryer, is it worth the price? Also, if you use the dryer do you like their products as well, have not tried those either?? A little history: I have really fine and pretty thin hair, i really don't do much heat styling to it because it is naturally very dry and prone to damage. I recently tried to quit blow drying to see if my hair would improve (look less dry/frizzy/dull/damaged) it did look much healthier letting it air dry but it then would be so limp and just hang so i was conflicted, it looks bad when i don't blow dry and it looks un healthy when i do....Also i use moroccan oil on my damp hair mostly in the ends to smooth and moisturize and i really like that, recently i got into shine serums so i now use Kenra silkening gloss i think it's called and i LOVE that, its more weightless than my moroccan oil so i can use that on the areas closer to my scalp and around my face and that helps to smooth down my natural waves around my face. SOO using both of those i'm pretty happy now with my blow drying results but i still feel like it could be better, so what better than looking for some wonderful thoughts or advice from the lovely BT'ers

I'm interested in trying the Diorskin Nude Skin-Glowing Makeup but not sure what color would be best.  I was in Sephora and they did the Color IQ and my skintone number is 2R08, what would be the best match in the Diorskin Nude Skin-Glowing Makeup?  Thanks :-)

So I am torn between these two and don't know which one I should get. I have dark circles and want to minimize them (not light reflecting particles but actually lighten them up a bit) and I have sensitive skin. I'm in my 20s.   The two products are the Sephora Collection Age Defy Eye Cream and First Aid Beauty 5 in 1 Eye Cream.   What do y'all think?   Thanks!! <3

I have thin, fine, color treated hair.  What shampoo do you recommend to preserve my color while giving me more volume?
Dry
Has anyone tried Donna Bella 24K Caviar Deep Moisturizer? I've tried the deep moisturizer from this brand and it was really good but it finished.  Right now it's a little too pricey for me so I'm looking for alternatives. I found this one on Groupon for $30 and was thinking to buy it but would like to hear more feedback.

Need recommendations on a blowdryer and diffuser combo for naturally wavy hair.  I'm looking to maximize my natural wave/curl, and I have very long hair.    I tried the Deva deryer & Diffuser combo but I'm not loving it. For the price ($160) it's not light or quiet.  And while I LIKE the Deva diffuser OK, the dryer doesn't seem to make my hair particularly shiny like other previous ionic dryers did.   Additionally, while I get this is a risk with any dryer: the Deva dryer seems to magically keep sucking my hair into the intake/fan/motor part on the back like no other!  Seriously, this used to happen once in a great while with my other drugstore (gasp) dryers, but since I got this one it's multiple times a session and I have to cut my hair to free it.  Sigh.  I'm contorting to make sure to keep my hair away from the intake as I'm drying but it's getting ridiculous.   Do you have a favorite dryer or diffuser for your curly or wavy hair?  Anything that seems powerful enough to dry the hair, benefits from ionic or other neat technology, or something you love because it's light or quiet?  What else do you look for in a dryer? Diffuser advice welcome too!   Thanks!

how to lighten the Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation Serum? Maybe mix it with the no foundation foundation light/fair color?   I would really like to try out the serum but I'm afraid it will be too dark for my skin. I wear Bare Minerals Original foundation in fairly medium (which is pretty light) over the top of MAC BB Prep + Prime in Light Plus. Random days I will switch and wear Estee lauder's Double Wear Light foundation in Intensity 2. Wanting to switch to something lighter and more natural looking with more of a dewy/satiny finish and that doesn't break me out. I heard such great things about the No Foundation Foundation Serum, but I haven't found any reviews on whether people have tried mixing it with the lighter version of the No Foundation Foundation and if they liked the results or not. My skin tends to be oily and I can never get makeup to last. I use Estee Lauder's Matte Perfecting Primer, but was thinking of switching to the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer. Anyways... Any Suggestions? Thanks!
Antiaging
I am 51 and looking for one line that can take care of my skincare concerns. I am starting to see fine lines on my forehead, and décolleté is starting to show my age. I have been treating dark spots and unevenness for about 5 years. I would like to continue to do so. It seems that my skin is getting drier. For most of my adult life I have had combination skin.
