Q. Curly Hair
I am in need of a new routine for my naturally curly hair. I am using DevaCurl but my hair is fine, flat, limp and oily. I am looking for increased volume and hold without being left grimy or sticky. I have been looking at the new IGK products but am not sure what would work. Thanks in advance!

Q. Best illuminating powder?
I'm looking for something to add to my makeup to help illuminate my skin. My skin tone is fair/medium and I have a lot of freckles on my cheeks, so I have to be careful what I put on or else my makeup will look too 'caked on' or 'powdery'. I just want something lightweight that will add a natural glow/brightening effect to my look.

Q. What lipstick is closest to this color?
While watching the the Olympics last week, I fell in love with this Italian gymnast's lip color. I'm not very makeup savvy, so I need help finding lipsticks that are that color or similar (along with it being matte like hers). Any help is appreciated, because I need to get my hands on this.

I want to purchase the Kat Von D shade and light eye shadow palette, Too Faced bon bon palette, and the Tarte tartelette in bloom palette.

Q. My face is dehydrated & uneven with a rough texture, please help
My skin is extremely dehydrated and dull lately. I use a clarisonic every night but no matter how much I exfoliate it never seems to look anything but rough. Large pores on my cheeks, lines on my forehead & an uneven looking texture all over. My skin is extremely sensitive and is frequently irritated on top if all this. My moisturizer does nothing for the dryness & my makeup looks awful sitting on the roughness. I use cetaphil face wash, cerave moisturizer spf 30 & MyChelle hyaluronic acid serum at night   I'm only 28, please help!

Q. Oily, sensitive, and acne prone skin
I'm 21 and have suffered from acne for as long as I can remember. I've been to the dermatologist and have been perscribed multiple things that have done absolutely nothing. I've tried just about everything so I need some help. I have oily skin and I need products that help with acne or will not cause me to breakout , yet usually when I use products for acne prone skin they leave my skin with dry patches and super sensitive. Is there any products out there that will help with acne but not dry me out??

Q. purple eyeliner allergy
 I have found that I am now allergic to purple eyeliner and possibly shadow because of the dye used I believe. I was wondering if anyone else has the same problem and found a brand that does not make them re-act like you have pink eye.

Q. Concealer & Primer for dry/ combination and textured skin
Hey! I have dry/combination textured skin, especially in the triangle area between my nose bridge and under my eyes/ on top of my cheeks. I've been told they're closed comedones. It's been really difficult finding a foundation that didn't cling onto dry patches (that don't appear UNTIL I put on foundation or concealer) and end up making my skin look scaley and unflattering.   I need to find a concealer  and primer  to pair it with the tinted moisturizer that won't accentuate  the textured skin I have and one that hydrates and blends easily.    Products I've tried : Too Faced Born This Way Foundation Tarte Rainforest of The Sea Foundation Too Faced Hangover Primer Smashbox Hydrating Primer MUFE Hydrating Primer So far only the Bareminerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Gel is working in terms of not showing dry patches and flakes. The only major problem I have with it is that the finish looks oily around my T-zone but nothing a little Laura Mercier translucent powder can't fix.

Q. Skincare Subscription Boxes
Does anyone know of any skincare-only subscription boxes? I just cancelled my Birchbox subscription, since the points system was really the only reason I was sticking around, so I'm looking for a replacement. I'm pretty picky with makeup, but still new to the world of skincare, so it'd be nice to find a subscription box with only skincare items (not mask-only boxes, though).   I have looked into some of the Korean skincare boxes, Miss Tutii and MishiBox in particular, but I'm a little wary of the quality of some of the cheaper Korean brands that are often in those boxes and I am very uncomfortable at the prospect of getting skin-whitening products. I also have gotten the impression that a lot of Korean skincare products are for oily skin, and since I have very dry skin, I would have to have a box that is customized for dry skin.   I would love to hear from subscribers about their experiences with different boxes!

I have been wanting to try out a new lipstick, but I need help finding one. I like the look of most matte lipsticks, but they leave my lips too dry.

Q. Daily skin regiment for a super sensitive acne-prone skin?
Hi! I have a very sensitive skin and lately I am having quite a hard time with it. I am 40 (already!) and still have acne (little, very deep under the skin type of pimples, not exactly what you see on those acne treatment informercials). It will breakout for several reasons (hormone, heat, stress...) I followed different treatment for that (even with a dermatologist) and I found out that, because my skin is very sensitive, using acne treatment actually make it worst somehow...my combination skin is often mistaken for a very oily one because as soon as I use something too strong my skin get's oily to cope with the harsh ingredients. So, I am looking for new products for my skin because what I am using right now cause my skin to breakout a lot and my skin is itchy. I am using clinique products (the more gentle soap, the no.2 clarifying lotion, the turnaround revitalizing serum and the moisturizing gel). I am using the Neutrogena CC cream instead of a fondation. Usually when I combine a very gentle soap with very light moisturizing I am doing fine. I would like to know the products that may be better for me (from soap to moisturizer), which BB or CC cream to use, well, which skin care would make my skin better. I know my skin is not typical but maybe that might help other women that also have a very difficult skin. It's hard to find a product that will soothe and prevent acne, help with those first wrinkles as well as be gentle on a skin that won't put up with ingredients that are too strong. Thank you so much for your help! Ps. I hope the writing is not too bad, english is my second langage
