FEATURED POST

i just saw a commercial for Manga Mascara!  It looks so neat to be able to do, and before now, I didn't even think to do my lashes that way.  Has this always existed and I just didn't know?     Has as anyone done this before, with or without manga "mascara?"
Dry
So, I'm having problems finding a balance in skin care and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions.. My skin can be pretty sensitive if I use products that are too harsh, so I was using Shiseido Purness toner and facewash, or Cetaphil face wash, and Fresh Seaberry Oil and/or Clinique Dramatically Different moisturizer. My skin has stayed pretty clear the last few months, but it's been getting increasingly dry, despite the fact that it's summer.   It's been making me nervous that it's going to get worse this winter, so I've been trying to find a solution for the dryness. I've been trying Boscia Restorative Night Cream and Ole Henrickson Nurture Me. They've been helping with the dryness (especially the Boscia), but one of them has made my skin start breaking out. I've switched to try CeraVe Moisturizer PM, but no idea if this is going to help..   It seems like my skin is either dry and clear, or hydrated and broken out. Anyone else have this problem or know of a good solution??

For all ladies who are waiting for Kat von D, I went to JCP Sephora to pick up the Vice 3 palette and lo and behold Kat von D's Holiday sets were out! I was completely surprised and excited to get them coz they were not even out online or Sephora store yet but here's a quick look at them on display. The lady told me they just got them in yesterday. I'll take better pics when I get them home.  
Acne
I am just looking for a recommendation for a nice, semi affordable mask. I have combination skin -oily t zone but dry chin and normal cheeks. I would like to try something targeting for purifying, acne, and just overall nice skin. Have any suggestions?  
Makeup
So i got color matched by Sephora through their color IQ system. I was emailed my color (4Y07) along with the shade I would be in a handful of products. However, the shade that I would be in Bareminerals Ready foundation powder was not included. How do I see what shades Iam in other brands?
Face
I love my primers from sephora, but I'm looking for something affordable for days when I'm not going anywhere special. So does anyone know any affordable primers that are good 
All Other Concerns
Last week I tried two new products : Phyto huile d'ales and AS I am coconut co wash,  I slept overnight in the  Phyto. A day later the tops of my ears started burning intensely and itching, , 2 days later I used the coconut co wash. this reaction continued all last week until i felt my scalp get uncomfortable , dry itchy, and my face red with welts. I thought it was the Phyto product because it has castor oil and I was reading some have reaction to castor oil because it naturally contains ricin toxin. Yesterday, used the coconut co wash for the second time , not realizing it also contains castor oil. Today the welts spread to my neck, shoulders, chest, essentially everywhere my hair touches.  I washed my sheets 2 days ago as to not contaminate, if it is the cause of these products.  Help, has anyone experienced reactions like this to these great products or castor oil? It is super painful and hydrocortisone doesn't effect, but borage oil helps with  rash and redness.

Is the Men's YSL La Nuit De L'Homme the same fragrance as the Men's YSL La Nuit De L'Homme - Edition Art?
Fragrance
I am searching for a new fragrance for the autumn and upcoming winter months. Some fragrances I like in general include Falling in Love by Philosophy, Glamorous by Ralph Lauren (now discontinued), Nicole by Nicole Richie, Honey by Marc Jacobs, Viva la Juicy by Juicy Couture, Ralph Lauren Blue, Angel by Thierry Mugler, Stella by Tocca, Pretty by Elizabeth Arden, Bath & Body Works Sensual Amber Parfum, Carolina Hererra 212 Sexy… to name a few.   I want something warm and sexy, but also unique and somewhat bold. I sampled Donna Karan Cashmere Mist and found it to be too powdery. I also tried Giorgio Armani Sí and liked it initially but it wore off fast. I also want something a little more bold and a bit different than those I've named above but while staying true to my fragrance "profile". Something sexy, seductive, and sophisticated. What do you recommend? Thanks :-)

I just recently purchased my first Kabuki brush. I have been using a beauty blender to put on my foundation up until now and really have no idea what a kabuki brush is for. To be perfectly honest I am quite a newbie to makeup...I typically use liquid foundation or BB creams because I live somewhere that is hot and humid all the time. Can a kabuki brush be used for liquids or is it only used for powder/mineral makeup?  P.s.- this is the one I purchased.   
Makeup
Hi! I'm 13 years old and I'm allowed to wear concealer, blush and lip products. I want to start wearing a little mascara too, but I'm not sure how to ask my mom! I've never asked about this sort of thing before and don't want it to be awkward!! The mascara I want to wear is clinques naturally glossy mascara in jet brown. About as natural as it gets!  
Hair
My hair is down to my collarbone. I want to grow it longer, ideally down to my shoulder blades. However, when my hair gets to where it is now I have problems. My hair gets easily tangled and it's sometimes hard to run a brush through. I also will get some split ends and a bit of breakage even if I don't heat style my hair much. When all this happens, I tend to throw my hands up, go to my stylist, and have her cut off a few inches to make my hair healthy again. I currently use a keratin conditioner and, two or three times a week, use a sulfate-free shampoo for colored hair. I use a serum after I straighten my hair.    What else can I do or use to get my hair growing healthy? My hair is fine, naturally wavy, and I color it at home ("stop coloring" is not an option for me).

My hair is naturally very fine, but I have a lot of it so I keep it about medium length with layers. After several years of color experimentation, it's almost completely back to it's normal color, but not quite the same on the texture. Not sure I'll ever get that back... It used to be very wavy to curly, but now it's mostly just kind of this awkward frizzy wave.    I'm looking for a repair product that won't weigh it down because it gets so greasy so fast. I'm not entirely sure this exists, but I would love something that would give me the same softness, volume, and bounce that you get after a blowout. I've tried doing my own blowouts to no avail. I've been debating between Argan Oil and Altera's Cavier Cream, but I'm open to any products that may help.

Hey guys, just in case if you've purchased something through the Lancome website recently and received their DELUXE promo, you might want to check your products. Mine came up as expired (as in an eyecream that expired Aug2014, eyeshadow made in 2011, Cils Booster made in 2010) and I couldn't even check the smaller items because they had no date that I could see.   I've emailed Lancome to let them know. I suspect that it was an old perk that they somehow (?) forgot to check the expiry dates for. It was so unexpected given I ordered directly from Lancome!

I am using Laura Mercier oil free tinted moisturizer in Cameo now. If I chose to try one from MUFE, which color would be best matching to Cameo: vanilla or warm ivory.
Hair
I bought this product before I decided to dye my black hair ombre and now I'm reading all the labels to my hair products. Sephora and Living Proof's websites say this product is safe for color-treated hair, but I saw this ingredient:   C10-40 Isoalkylamidopropylethyldimonium Ethosulfate   First of all, what a word. Secondly, doesn't Ethosulfate sound like a sulfate? HELP! I've been using this product and I don't want to mess up my hair!

I'm looking for a felt tipped liquid eyeliner that isn't an intense black color. I've been using Maybelline's line stiletto for a while and I've noticed that when it starts to run out it gets fainter, which I actually think looks better. All the grey liners I've seen looked too light and I don't like brown liquid eyeliner. Does anyone know of a liquid eyeliner that's something like a charcoal black instead of just  black black? Thanks!

So, I've been using the Devacurl line and I love it.   Except, every time I wash my hair with the no-poo, my scalp becomes itchy, irritated and dandruffy. But this doesn't happen all the time and I have no idea what I'm doing differently.   I got the Ojon line's deluxe sample, and using that makes my dandruff even worse.

 I have a problem. I work in a smoky environment part time on the weekend, so my skin gets a little sensitive from the pollution which causes some damage. Usually when I don't work there, my skin is normal, with no problems. I am 40 years old, I have some wrinkles and combination skin, and after a long day get shiny.   Right now I use different products, ranging from cheap to expensive and they are clearly not working well.  So I am looking for a day face cream to protect my skin from all that environmental damage and also an anti-aging  serum. Somebody told me I should use Dior One Essential serum because it will detox my skin, and the Vichy Aqua thermal moisturizer. I don t know if these are the right products for me.   Also, I need a night serum, anti-aging night cream, and eye cream. I really don't mind getting two different serums, or moisturizers. I would just like to find something that will give me that beautiful skin we all dream of... Would greatly appreciated any suggestions on brands and products that are best for my skin.
Skincare Stories
Recently I had a terrible breakout and allergic reaction to some products I was using on my face. I got very depressed and just didn't feel attractive. I changed up my whole skincare regimen and switched to a different foundation as well. Lately, I feel like I'm getting my glow back and I attribute that to these new products that helped calm, clear and soothe my inflamed skin. I started using First Aid Beauty cleanser and oil free moisturizer twice daily and Bareminerals liquid foundation. I'm curious from the beauty community who else has had a similar experience? What products helped and why? Did these changes help with self esteem and confidence?

Hello! For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had issues when applying false lashes on my right eye only. Just when I think my lashes are intact, within a few minutes I can feel my right eye starting to get a little watery and the inner corner of the lashes start to come off and even when I reapply with glue, it still comes off.   When I’m applying eyeshadow, on my right eye, I always make sure to use eye primer and within a few minutes of applying the eyeshadow …I can feel my eyelid getting watery, and the eyeshadow starts to crease and clump and I’m constantly having to fill it in with more eyeshadow and I end up making it look worse.  I've  had my makeup done professionally a few times and have had my friends do my makeup as well …and makeup stays on fine with no issues… but when I do it myself, this happens. I just can’t seem to fix the issue. It’s so frustrating =(  Any advice you have for me?   I look forward to hearing from you!

I don't know why, but the colors just aren't calling to me. I am wishing I picked up last year's Off the Cuff palette.
