Oily Skin
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?

I opened my opal highlighter to use today and found it completely shattered (except I didn't even drop it?). Does anyone have a way as to how I could fix this because homegirl isn't about spending another $50?

Best makeup recommendations for cool with a rosy undertone? I have oily and acne prone skin with some scarring on my cheeks if anyone has any tips on how to cover it as well that would be awesome!
Hair
I find myself constantly fustrated with my hair- it's an absaloute nightmare and I can't do anything with it! It's not curly or wavy but it's not really straight either- it has a few kinks/waves in it which look quite strange. It's incredibly thick and coarse and very dry as well as extremely frizzy and puffy. I get really stressed out putting it in a pony tail or bun because my hair just won't do as it's told and falls out and sticks out everywhere! I've tried so many high street anti-frizz products I've lost count, but none of them really seem to do anything to my hair- I'm under the impression that they're really aimed at people with finer hair than me who just have a few flyaways. I used to straighten my hair every day which was extremely hard work, and even though my hair is so thick and strong it could handle it, I've noticed that it's in slightly better condition in it's natural state. All I do with my hair nowerdays is just wash it, every 5 days or so, with whatever shampoo and conditioner my parents have bought and put a bit of coconut oil on the ends of it as it's drying (which does absaloutely nothing but it makes me feel better :') ). I let it dry naturally as it turns into a giant puff ball when hair dried. My hair would look really lovely and voluminous if I could just tame it; I'd love to put together a hair care routine suitable for my hair but I don't know where to start! I feel like it would be nice wavy, like it does have a few waves in it which can look nice on the right day. I'm also vegan so it would be great if the products reccomended could be cruelty free. Any ideas? I'm so sorry for babbling on, any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Makeup
Hello everyone! I just need some help finding a good face primer.  I have normal to dry skin and i need a hydrating primer but I also have tan skin with yellow undertones. I've used the Rimmel London Stay Matte primer from the drugstore, its mattifying but it doesn't work well with my dry skin and it makes my skin tone look lighter and it makes my foundation appear lighter.  So I'm in the hunt for a primer that wont lighten my skin tone and make it look white or washed out. Do you guys know of any primer that's hydrating and wont lighten my skin tone or make my skin look washed out/ashy?  Would a primer that's clear or have gel like consistency would work? What products do you recommend? Thank you! Hope you can help me!

What is the best CURRENT foundation for a beach wedding?  I was looking into Smashbox Studio Skin, Dior Airflash, and Makeup Forever Ultra HD foundation.   I plan to do a moisturizer for SPF underneath my foundation so no worries about ghostly images.  I want it to stay put (for the most part) and not melt off my face but simultaneously let me not look like I'm caked on.  Any suggestions, ladies, would be greatly appreciated!

Fragrance
Hi! I need help choosing a fragrance to gift my mom for her birthday. She is in love with both Jimmy Choo's Jimmy Choo and Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle. They both have patchouli base notes and mandarin orange top notes. It'd be great if some similar fragrances could be suggested. Thanks!
Face Q&A
Hi! I wear Tahoe in Nars All Day Luminous foundation and wanted to try out the Makeup Forever HD Foundation Stick but I wasn't sure what color would be the closest match. I'm a 3y10 in ColorIQ, if that helps.  
Dry Skin
I'm looking for a good moisturizer/cleanser/exfoliator for my  sensitive, dry, flaky patches skin, that breaks out pretty easily ( it's a lot i know)  I had been using clinique for years when it suddenly started to make me itch. Thanks in advance!
Acne
I use to have great skin but maybe a year ago I developed a problem with cystic acne and I think it was BC related but I've been long off of that and my face does not break out as bad but I still do get breakouts more than I use to and I have some acne scars. I have combination skin and it is more normal than dry but I do get dry spots occasionally. I'm very on top of my face care so I don't know if my skin has gotten use to my cleanser I use now maybe? I was hoping to see if anyone would recommend a great cleanser or even a lotion? I can't honestly call my skin bad BUT when I break out I do break out. I've looked at the Kate Somerville Eradicate Acne spot treatment with the sulfur in the bottle but read it can dry out your skin but would that possibly be something good to try? Anything to get my skin nice again and I do use a pore minimizer and I do have a Glamglow mask. Both work but I'm hoping for something a little more.

I've been filling in my eyebrows for about 2 years now and I feel like I've improved greatly in skill. I finally upgraded to an ABH brow definer and I love it but I feel like I'm filling my eyebrows wrong. I feel like my lack of an arch and sparse hair leaves me over-compensating with blocky brows.  Can someone give me advice on how to tweeze or wax my eyebrows into a better shape? What would be the best way to fill in my brows, working with the hair I have?  Pictures: My natural brows, and how I typically fill them in.

I must say, I am so very sad to hear that Nude is leaving Sephora; it was the only thing I could use on my sensitive, acne-proned skin that wouldn't cause further breakouts   My question to you lovely beauties is what is your favorite moisturizer? I have combination skin with a dry T-Zone and oily everywhere else.

I have this dress for prom and I wear glasses. I was wondering if I should do my eye makeup darker instead of a light brown/gold because it might be hard to see from far away. I just wanted opinions and see if I should do more of a dramatic smokey eye, since I was thinking it could bring out my blue eyes and make my false lashes look better.   
Antiaging Skincare
Does anyone out there know a face serum that is comparable to Nude Advanced Renewal Serum ? The product is no longer available at Sephora and I'm dreading running out of the bottle I have. I need to find a good replacement!

I want to get a true color match with the  Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay -in-Place makeup, but I can't find this product around my area. I have a true match with make up for ever Ultra HD 120=y245 (color IQ is 3Y04). I also have a Giogrio Armani luminous silk foundation which shade is 4 (lighter than my true match, but it works perfect on me). Another true color match I got in store is Laura mercier mineral powder real sand (color IQ is 2R04). Can anyone figure out what is my color match in Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay -in-Place Makeup ?  Thanks!

In the mornings, I wash my face with Tarte Deep Dive Cleansing gel, and follow up with an under eye cream (DERMAdoctor Kakadu C Eye Soufflé), Anti-redness serum (REN evercalm anti-redness serum), and a moisturizer (Sunday Riley Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream) At night, its the same routine, except after washing my face, I add in Retin-A.

I have had my Beauty Blenders for quite some time now. I have the pink one and the black one. I recently ran out of my cleaner that came with the set of Beauty Blenders, and lets face it, been too lazy to go out and buy more. So I have been using a shampoo that I keep to the side, it cleans them very well BUT it has left them dry and not as soft. Any tips on how to re- "moisturize" my beauty blender? And a at home remedy to clean them? Thank you!!

I work in retail, so the last thing I want is to be annoying but I just bought the Nars matte tinted moisturizer for oily skin and just absolutely hate it. I should've asked for a sample but I love the brand so much that I trusted it would work great, especially after seeing some reviews on youtube. When I put it on this morning I could just tell the consistency was off as I was applying and then literally 15 minutes after I applied it, it started settling into my pores so bad. I have a lot of pores around my nose and chin area and it looked really bad, and it settled in certain areas of my skin but then got really really oily and pretty much disappeared in other areas. I'm so disappointed in the product, and I hate the thought of having paid 45 dollars for something I really dislike. I really don't want to be annoying though, what do you guys recommend I do? Should I return it, or should I keep it and try mixing other foundations or stuff with it? Will I be annoying if I return it?

Hi lovely ladies and gentleman, I'm new to the sephora beauty talk community and I wanted to ask you all for some tips on skincare products such as face cleansers, face masks, moisturizers, skin toners and primers for oily skin. I can't seem to find anything to help me control my oily skin.  If you make any tips of recommendations i'd really appreciate it ALSO any good foundations for oily skin, and best setting sprays and setting powders?

My glam glow youth mud (tingle exfoliate) dried up. I did take the foil lining of but I never used it. Has anyone had the same problem and what did you do ? Can I fix it by adding water? Glam glow.com said you can return the unused product for credit or exchange it for another product if you bought it at glam glow.com  but it was a gift from Sephora. What do I do ?!?
