Hi, Im a male asian and i have really oily skin. Iv just moved to LA and the sun seems to be doing its damage to my face. Iv decided to get some sunscreen and tried a couple of brands laying around the house. Chanel and lancome? But these feel gross after awhile on my skin and get way too oily. Also the chanel ones seems to make my pores or white head even whiter by filling them up or something? SO my question is what is the best sunscreen for oily skin?! I JUST got this today: http://www.sephora.com/oil-control-mattifier-spf-1 5-pa-P227801?skuId=1133727#BVRRWidgetID AND I LOVE IT! but my friends are saying spf 15 is too weak... is spf 15 not going to be strong enough for daily use? im not outside all day in the field. just running errands and such. thanks!
Makeup isn't my environment, yet. And contouring is very new to me. I was wondering what the store carried for contouring products? What would you guys recommend I'd buy as a new person to this? Like I'm sure you can go out and get 20 different things just to do this, but I want something simple and straight forward. I'll go in and have someone show me how to contour my face, but it would be less overwhelming if I had someone here tell what would be best to get and what brushes would be most useful and needed.
My skin has suddenly become very dry. I'm using the anti-aging eye balm and moisturizer by Algenist and a sample of Geurlain's Lingerie foundation. The foundation seems to be a huge improvement from what I was using but I am still struggling with the dry skin, especially around my eye area. Any suggestions on a serum and eye cream? (I'm allergic to linalool. ) Also, would Nars' Sheer Glow foundation be better for my dry skin versus the Guerlain foundation that I am thinking about purchasing? thank you for your help!
I need help! I went in to a Sephora store and was matched up to the Make Up Forever Full Coverage Concealer in Dark Beige #12. It looked great inside the store but in natural light, it still seems a bit dark. I am using it to cover a small tattoo on my arm. The color is very close, but it makes my arm look like I have a bruise on it. I would like to order it in a shade lighter, but I am not sure if I should go with Golden Beige #10, or Beige #8. Will the golden beige #10 be too yellowish? Will the beige #8 be too light? Suggestions?
I'm honestly always on a hunt for a better eyeliner. eyeliners that glide on smoother, that stay on longer, and is better value.. I have purchased and used the Bobbi brown's gel liner 2 times, but I'm not crazy about them. They stay on a bit better than Nars cream liners, but still isn't enough.. my undereye area gets very very messy after about 4 hours. I'm interested in the YSL gel liners, but like all other YSL products, the reviews are "too glowingly positive" For ex. their stick concealer and touche eclat foundation are nice, but they're not worth 5 star reviews. (at least in my opinion) Has anyone with eyes that are prone to smudging easily tried he YSL gel liner? (monolid reviewers would be even more helpful)
I recently purchased items from sephora.com, however something wouldn't let me log into my beauty insider account, therefore I was unable to receive points for my purchase. Is there any way I can get those points put onto my beauty insider card even after the purchase? I still have my receipt.
So I see that a lot of folks are not liking this new eyeliner, mainly because the formula is so dry that it doesn't go on smoothly. I tried this little trick this morning and it improved things greatly. The trick is gentle heat. You could probably just give the pen a little blast with a hairdryer, but mine wasn't handy so this is what I did. Make sure lid is screwed on nice and tight Place pen tip side down in a mug of hot tap water for about a minute Prep the tip by wiping it clean with a tissue dipped in the hot water and cleaning off any old product Twist and do a couple of test swipes on the back of your hand Ready to go It improves performance quite a bit, as the indirect heat softens the formula just enough. The downside to it is that it can be a little wasteful, as the heat will push out more product than you probably want. But I figure it's not as wasteful as having a $25 eyeliner sitting there that's impossible to use AMIRITE?
I made a post last week about need a solution to my lipstick application problems but nothing is working still. I took mostly everyones advice and it still isn't working. Every time I put on lipstick it still always settles into my lip lines. I prime my lips with the Bite Beauty Lip Primer and then I line my lips with a lip liner and apply my lipstick of choice and it still settles into my lip lines. I exfoliate my lips but it still doesn't help. Is there anything else I can do?
Just a quick FYI to anyone with a Costco membership; the store near me (Fremont CA to be exact) has Glam Glow Power Mud for around $36. This is the newer mud-oil hybrid deep cleansing treatment. Also, to, and more exciting to me, this Costco also has Chanel nail polish! The price on the nail polish was $20 or so IIRC? Shades included Jade Rose (pale peachy pink), a red and a warm grey (sorry, don't recall the name) and Vertigo, a shimmery dark taupe brown. Vertigo came home with me. Whoohoo for Costco! I had no idea they carried prestige brands, it was my first trip there ever.
So I'm having trouble deciding which product to buy and I was wondering if you guys could give me a hand. I'm of indian heritage with a fairly dark skin tone (for reference just google Freido Pinto- basically the same colour as her), and I have pretty bad pigmentation from waxing and threading my upperlip constantly (basically a 5 o'clock shadow), as well as dark acne scars. I was wondering which product would best help me cover up the pigmentation/5 o'clock shadow because apparently they both work: the makeup forever corrective camouflage concealer palette (the one with darker shades including the orange corrective shade), or the makeup forever full cover extreme camouflage cream. I can't afford both, but I was thinking that the orange corrective shade would be better considering my pigmentation is pretty bad but I'm really not sure. Thanks in advance!
The lightest Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation is still too dark for me and I was wondering if there were any good dupes for this foundation and the wonderful formula it offers. I heard the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24hr was good, any thoughts?
Happy Sunday, everyone! QVC's today's special value (TSV) is this device today. I am 38yo, fair to light, and I have combination, sensitive, acne-prone skin. I am especially sensitive to anything win fragrance. I used the NuFace Trinity device, and it definitely did provide a lift, but it wasn't a terribly pleasant experience. It also irritated my skin a bit. I returned it. i am intrigued by the Tria TSV. I would like it for fine lines and evening out the texture of my skin. has anyone used this? Did it work? How does it compare to dermie office fraxel treatments, or, I guess, does it even compare? thank you for any guidance!
I made a purchase four days ago in a Sephora store and used my beauty insider card. My online account doesn't show the purchase in the purchase history & hasn't added any new points for what i bought. In the store they said i had only a certain amount of points added but i was confused because online i had more accumulated.
hi i would like to buy the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz but im not too sure which colour i should purchase i have dark brown hair im not sure if i should go for ebony or brunette and i have fair skin also im from the UK so not sure i cant go into store and check.
Hi, I was wanting a powder that will keep my super oily skin matte and shine-free. I've been reading the reviews and i'm not sure whether the BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum or the Stay Matte Sheer pressed powder would work better.
I'll be taking an overnight flight and wanted to get some tips on skincare to prevent my skin from drying out and breaking out. My beauty advisor at Sephora recommended the Ole Henrikson making removing cloths followed by the Murad Clarifying wipes to remove makeup, sunscreen, and clean my skin. I purchased these two items. Then I was thinking about what to follow it with. I was thinking of the Nude Overnight Mask or the Amore Pacific Moisture Bound Sleeping Mask. Any opinions on the Nude mask vs the Amore Pacific Mask? I've used the Nude mask (not on the plane), but never tried the Amore Pacific. Also, do I need to use any other treatments or moisturizers before the mask?

I'm looking for a good toner for very oily skin and large pores. I've been using Munrad for about a month now every morning before my makeup routine and about a week ago I started using the origins zero shine and not real sure this one is worth the money. I like the Munrad just fine . I just want to make sure I'm using the best product for my skin to look its best.
I have mature, sensitive skin, prone to redness, broken capillaries, large pores. My oncologist told me to not use products containing soy. Can anyone suggest some products for cleansing, moisturizing and treating my skin issues that do not contain soy products? I was looking at the First Aid line but could not tell if it contained soy.
Hi all, I recently got a deluxe sample of the Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant and really liked it, but at $78 it's a bit more than my budget can afford to purchase the full size. I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for microdermabrasion/exfoliating scrubs that are similar, but not as pricey? Some of the other scrubs I'm considering are the Bliss MicroMagic, the Fresh Soy Face Exfoliant, or Bliss Pore Perfecting Face Polish. Has anyone tried those or have any other products to recommend? Thanks!
