I have very sensitive skin that's often prone to redness and acne. However, I just started trying out makeup and I want to figure out what's best for my skin while being able to experiment with different styles and colors. However, I don't like products/brands that contain harsh chemicals (i.e. parabens or phthalates) or test on animals. With that in mind, do any of you have recommendations for these items: Makeup Remover Wipes/Brush Cleaners Eyeshadow/Face Palettes (in neutral, soft, vivid/bold colors and/or a combo of any of these) Single Eyeshadows/Blushes/Highlighters/Bronzers Colorless Lip Balm Mascara Eyeliner Lipstick/Gloss/Stain/Colored Lip Balm Thank you!
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!
Hi! So I previously dyed my hair auburn for about 4 months, then burgundy for another 3, until it faded. I then cut my hair shorter (it had been long) and decided burgundy did not look as good anymore, and wanted to go back to brown/my natural color. The brown looked nice, however, the red was still present. Is there anyway to remove the red?
I recently purchased the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard because of all the rave it gets online and with my friends. Unfortunately, this left my skin super dry and patchy at the end of the day wherever I placed the concealer. I wash my face every night with Philosophy's Purity Made Simple cleanser. I moisturize every night with Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Treatment, and follow up every morning with another face wash then treating my skin with Ole's Truth Serum and Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. All in all, my skin is NOT dry whatsoever and since I started really taking care of my skin it doesn't get as oily throughout the day as it used to. I used Clinique's Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer in Alabaster but it was leaving my skin just as patchy as NARS did, only it happened just an hour or so after applying while the NARS concealer lasted a few hours more without looking patchy. I've gone through the online store to see if I could find anything with awesome reviews, but I'd like to get a better idea from you guys. If it helps with anything, I listed down below what I use for my make up routine (and my skin doesn't get patchy whatsoever). Face Primer: Hour Glass Veil Mineral Primer Foundation: Benefit Cosmetics 'Hello Flawless!' Oxygen Wow Liquid Foundation in the color Honey Setting Powder: Laura Mercier Contour: Benefit Cosmetics HOOLA Matte Bronzer Highlight: BECCA x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop Setting Spray: Urban Decay De-Slick Oil-Control

My hair is very thick, medium length, and has been color treated many times. I live in Nevada, and as a result, if I let my hair air dry, it is dry as straw and fluffy, no matter what leave-in conditioner I use. But when I go to humid places like San Francisco or New Orleans, suddenly my hair has perfect curls like I used a waving wand. Is there a product I can use to get this effect at home? This is my hair in Nevada, on a good day: And this is my San Francisco hair I'm fairly young, if that helps anyone answer this question. Thank you!
I'm looking for an affordable scented body lotion and/or foot cream to use after showering. I don't have particularly dry legs or feet, so I don't need anything heavy duty, but I really would like something that smells nice! Currently I'm using The Body Shop's Body Butter (strawberry), but it's too expensive to keep buying it, so I'm looking for alternatives. Something that absorbs fast would also be nice, but is not mandatory. Thanks!
I was wondering what people's thoughts on these two are. I've tried the DE glycolic serum and liked it (sample), but then I tried a foil sample of it a month later and it did not do anything, and rather seemed to add to my whiteheads. I also tried the Good Genes as a sample, but it did not seem to do anything for me. I'm thinking that maybe I am not having much success with these products because I got them in a sample jar where the ingredients would have been exposed to the air for a while. That said, has anybody really tried both and have a firm opinion on which one they prefer? I have combination/oily (in the center of my face) skin, and it is NOT that sensitive.
I have oily/sensitive/acne prone skin and have been looking for a good moisturizer with SPF that won't irritate my skin. I recently tried Philosophy Renewed Hope with SPF 25 (only because I use the night cream and its amazing) but the SPF version is horrible for oily skin. What are the ones that work best for you?
Hello, I've been using the Peter Thomas Roth Gentle Complexion Corrections Pads for quite some time now. I noticed a month or two ago that they were out of stock, and now the website states that they cannot be shipped to the US. I was wondering why is this item no longer available for purchase here? and will it be again? I also noticed that Sephora stores no longer carry this product. I have had great results using the pads, and I would preferably like to continue using them as well as purchasing them through Sephora. Otherwise, what other products would you recommend that are similar? Greatly appreciate your response. Thanks
Hello ladies I'm currently writing my Master's thesis about communication, and I'm really looking for pictures of some Fragrance Sample Postcards that I can use as some examples on how to use scent in commercials. I've tried finding pictures online without any luck on getting a good picture of both sides of the postcard(s). Is it possible that any of you have some of these postcards with a sample, and that can take some (good) pictures of it/them? Both front page and the back page ? Thanks in advance. - Maibrit
In the summer my face tends to tan better than my chest and im not sure what type of makeup i should use on my chest to match my face. Its hard because i have freckles so i never use any face makeup (only stuff for my eyes/lips).
Which everyday facial cleanser can someone recommend for me? My skin is normal/combo and I need something that will help keep my pores clean as well as deal with whiteheads on the side of my face from my eye to a little past my cheekbones closer to my ears than the center of my face. I already have an exfoliant but I can't use that everyday.
I have dry skin and I was wondering what order y'all do your skincare in at night or in the morning and maybe what products you use to help with the dryness. Also, how long should I wait to put on makeup after my skincare routine?
My lipstick won't apply towards the center of my lips. Even when my mouth is closed you can see a definite division between where my lipstick applied and where it hasn't. It is a matte lipstick by Nars in Shanghai Express (red). Do you know a good primer that will solve this issue ot any other suggestions?
SK II's Cellumination line has been discontinued and pulled from the US market. Sephora still carries the cream and lotion from that line which I believe is existing stock waiting to be sold. But the cellumination Aura Essence is gone, even from department stores. The asian market has it's replacement of with the Genoptics line. Anyone have any ideas when and if Sephora will add Genoptics to their SK II offering?
i have very light skin (the lightest of ivory), blue eyes, and dark brown hair. most brown eye shadows look too overwhelming on my complexion. besides pinks and purples, what would be a good eye shadow color?
Hey guys, so I'm 27 with fair, sensitive, acne prone skin especially hormonal acne. I am thinking of changing up my skin care routine, BUT I have been using Origins plantscription am with SPF 25 and the night a mins cream at night (both creams are oil free too) for probably 2-3 years now. I just feel like maybe I need something new for my skin, I have been looking at Lancome and some other products, but I just dont know what to go with? obviously I would like a day cream that has SPF in it and im all about anti-aging products it is never too early to start for that. So I need some advice what are the best products to maybe try out that are reasonable or maybe just keep my routine the way it is?
