Age Spots
I have horrible age spots and some scars on my legs. What can I do to cover them. I don't want a tan or bronzer - just need to make some of them disappear.

Hi AKK813,    I recommend you use a good daily scrub/exfoliant which can help to remove dead/damaged cells that intensify the darkness so you can promote cell turnov... see post

Recommendations for nighttime moisturizer or cream?
I would like a product that is $50 or under. I have oily acne-prone skin so something that is hypoallergenic, perhaps natural, and oil free would be great. The main obstacle for me trying to search for a good night cream is that I want to find something that has healing power to deal with acne scarring, current acne, and healing acne. Thanks!

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipsticks
Okay... not to complain but I was trying on one of my KVD lippies and for some reason for which I don't know, I rolled up the whole lipstick tube and there wasn't much product in there.  There's probably about less than an inch of actual lipstick.  I got curious and looked at the Marc Jacob's lippie and while there's not a lot in there either, it's more than Kat's lipstick.  I'm not complaining about the quality of the lipstick... it's great I just wish that for $21, they could have put more than 3/4's of an inch of lipstick in there.  I mean her Monarch palette size is huge... why can't the lipsticks be too?   I just looked and the Studded Kiss has .10 oz., her original line has .11 and Marc Jacob has .12

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade
is this stuff good to use in hot weather? I'm going to Miami in a few weeks I want to find something to fill in my eyebrows that wont melt off and will look natural under the sun. Any tips for my makeup during this trip? i'd really appreciate it. I bought Laura Mercier smooth finish flawless fluid for when i go, what setting powder would be a good choice to use? any really good primers or setting sprays recommended? I've used urban decays was never really impressed by it. :/

Dolce and Dolce and Dolce... Oh My!
I've been on a massive Dolce spree lately... I tried their lipsticks and lip glosses and I'm in love!  I also did my normal Kat Von D hoarding as well this month with all the new lippies.  So much so, that I haven't yet did my normal Nars round up.  Is there a particular brand that you have been snatching up lately anytime you have a couple of bucks in your pocket?  What is the brand and how much do you think you spent on your brand addiction?  And what do you love about it?

Amazing Cosmetics Concealer - Wearing Off Quickly
I've been trying out a bunch of concealers lately to hide the few blemishes and mild/moderate acne scars on my face. My favorite so far is Amazing Cosmetics Concealer because it's the most opaque one I've ever used and covers perfectly on the first try. However, I notice that when I get home from work and look in the mirror the concealer has worn off.   Any advice on why this is happening? I don't use a primer (I'm hearing your gasps!) but I do use a setting powder everyday (MUFE's HD powder). I wouldn't think I'd need a primer because I've never used one before and haven't noticed this issue with any of the other concealers I've used. So is it me not using a primer, is there some other trick to help make it last all day, or is this a common occurrence with this concealer? Help me, beauty gurus!

Has Anyone Tried HUM Nutrition?
Most of the supplements from HUM have high ratings on this site, but I'm wondering if anyone has tried any of them? They're pretty new on here and I usually take the reviews here with a grain of salt. In general, I don't sit on either side of the fence when it comes to supplements and if they work or not. I'd love to hear anyone's experience with these - favorable or not so much. Although I'm interested in most of them, I'm particularly intrigued by the Runway Ready set and the Daily Cleanse.

High-end products with an excellent value (The Hourglass Arch Brow Pencil)
I recently bought the HOURGLASS Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil, because of the great reviews. I was going through a Brow Wiz way too quickly. When I found out the Hourglass pencil is 0.014oz, for $32 ($37CAD), compared to 0.003oz $21($27) for the Brow Wiz, I was sold. If you compare the 2, the brow wiz is so much more expensive! You would pay $98 ($126 CAD) for the same amount of product! I even compared it with drugstore products and it's still a better value.   So, my question is, do you have any other go-to products that you think have such a great value?

Living Proof Prime Style Extender SPRAY..
Can the Living Proof Prime Style Extender SPRAY be used on dry hair? I normally was my hair at night and when I curl my hair the next day they fall like a few hours later and that isn't going to help when i'm starting Cosmetology school and its a 7 1/2 hour school day and then i have to work. So can i put the Prime Style Extender balm or gel whatever it is in my hair at night before blow drying and then in the morning use the Prime Style Extender SPRAY before curling? I have long thick hair and I need my curls to last and not fall out 2 hours later so it looks like I didn't do anthing

not happy with makeover at sephora
I feel bad even writing this...and I'm not trying to offend any of the girls that work for Sephora. I just want to know if anyone else has had a bad experience with a makeover at Sephora. I went there yesterday for foundation, concealer and blush. She offered to try some products on me. I don't know if it was her or the lighting, but the concealer she had used (becca creamy concealer) was SO ORANGE on my skin. I am super pale, and I don't know why she thought it looked good. Then she tried a MUFE concealer under my eyes, and it was ghostly and all you could see was my purple bags. Next we moved on to foundation, and she still couldn't get a color right. So now I am totally clues as to what skin tone/IQ I am :-( A little disappointing. Do you know if they take makeup training classes like MAC does, or is it just basic application? Thanks for any feedback.

Anyone want to swap?
I'm hoping to try and pare down my mass grave of products. I'm willing to ship first for people who have more hearts than me (just about everyone lol). If you are interested in a product I will take pictures of it for you to see and also weigh it on my kitchen scale so you'll know exactly how much product is left. I'm mostly hoping to find any Josie Maran product (!!), Philosophy Fresh Cream products, anything with sweet vanilla/sugar scents, anything with Argan Oil, and Agadir products. I'm open to other products as well   Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser (3/4 full) - Olive and Avocado Deep Conditioning Shampoo (used once) - Kerestase Christaliste Bain Cristal (used twice) - John Masters Haircare Zinc and Sage Shampoo (2/3 full) - 100% Pure Vanilla Bean Nourishing Body Cream (2/3 full) - Boscia Revitalizing Black Hydration Gel (1/2 full) - Kenra Platinum Silkening Gloss (used once) - Redken All Soft Argan-6 Oil (used a few times) - Khiels Deeply Restorative Smoothing Hair Oil Concentrate (used once) - Josie Maran Argan Oil Hair Serum (used once) - Moroccan Oil Treatment Oil (more than 3/4 full) - Aveda Smooth Infusion Shampoo (little more than 1/2 full) - Ojon Rare Blend Infusion Shampoo (2/3 full) - Wen Bamboo Green Tea (used once)

Eye cream for the eyelids?
Is there an eye cream that is safe to use on the eyelids? I was told by one sephora gal the dermadoctor eye cream is okay to use on the eyelids and then told by another that there isn't an eye cream that is safe or should be used on the eyelids.

AUGUST APPRECIATION: BEAUTY INSIDER/VIB/VIB ROUGE ?
Hi all ! I know that August is one of the best times to shop at Sephora because of the great perks, extra points and all those goodies. Has anybody heard anything about this yet? Any posters or in-store sightings? I'm so excited and we're one week away and I haven't heard anything yet! Ah !!! Doesn't 2x, 3x, or 4x (depending on membership) sound awesome? I really hope that Sephora hasn't forgotten...Hoping for bigger and better things this year, not to say that last years wasn't too shabby itself.    Let's end this with a question: Q: What was your favorite perk/part/time of August Appreciation Month?    My answer: I love the whole month, even though promos change weekly, I loved the VIB Bag w/samples and the 3x points, pretty sweet
