Hi, my friend has been asking around for a good product to alleviate her dry lips, but I don't have that problem so I came here for help. She doesn't want an exfoliator because they just irritate her lips even more. Her lips are EXTREMELY dry to the point that the area around her lips is also dry and red.

I have been blonde for about 2 and a half years now-I'm sure a lot of you know the maintenance that comes with it. I recently decided to dye my hair back to it's natural state, an ashy brown. After the first dye job, my hair didn't take all the color so I went back and got it redone 3 days later. It's not been about 3 days since the dye job and I washed my hair this morning with color depositing shampoo, and IM GREEN!  My hair has this faint, green tint to it that is noticeable. I have read online that it's because I didn't have the right base...but I can't afford another dye job.    I just purchased the Tressa Watercolor shampoo that should deposit color (I used John Frieda this AM) and it say's it has red tones in it. The red should cancel out the green right? As a 16 year old in high school, the last thing I want is green tint to my brown hair.    What would you recommend? Use the Tressa and see what happens?

I am brand new to face makeup, ive been doing my eyes (eyeliner, mascara, primer) for years and am confident with that. I am looking to get into face makeu but I am very acne prone and i have oily skin. so i have been looking into acne fighting foundations and primers but my question is if i get an acne fighting primer do i need an acne fighting foundation?   I have also been looking at bb creams that are also acne fighting and along with that i was thinking of using just that on my face in the place of foundation since it is a lighter product. with that though would i need a primer underneath it? which brings me back to my first question again, if it would need to be acne fighting also

Face Q&A
Hi all! I am a big fan of Adelaide Kane (an actress from Reign, Teen Wolf, etc.). Recently, she uploaded pictures to Instagram from a photoshoot she had done with photographer Jordan Harvey. I fell in love with the soft color used on her cheeks and was hoping that the Sephora community might be able to make a recommendation on a blush that would dupe the blush used on Adelaide for the shoot.    I did a little digging and found that the exact blush used for the shoot was Au Naturale Cosmetics Organic Creme Blusher in Rose (a soft burgundy shade). Any recommendations for this little obsession of mine?       tags: blush, adelaide kane, rose, burgundy, au naturale, reign, cool, cool tone

Makeup
I have a stye and am wondering if microwaving my beauty blender would get rid of the germs? I've microwaved before no problem but will it truly disinfect? I can't use antibacterial soap because it would just break me out when I use the beauty blender.

What is a good liquid foundation for combination skin, oily skin, that is light, and would cover up the redness of my skin? Looking for more coverage! I have only ever used powder as I have oily skin and didn't think that liquid would work for me but I want more coverage.

I recently picked 6 singles to customize my Buxom palette. Unfortunately 3 out of 6 are duds, not showing up whatsoever. Is it possible for me to return only those 3 or do I have to return the whole palette? Thanks a lot!

I was thinking about getting the Rust quad for my blue eyes but I'm scared that the orange might be too bright and would be hard to wear every day. I already have the Too Faced Natural Matte palette... is it worth getting the Kat Von D quad?

I was looking to buy the Nars creamy concealer but I'm not too sure which shade would fit my skin tone best. I would go to an actual Sephora store but its a bit far. Thanks for any help!
Oily Skin
I used to have dry patches and oily skin, but I've switched to using Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb, May Coop Raw Sauce, Son & Park Beauty Water, and I use St Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub as a cleanser. My skin has stopped being dry, but it's still oily. It's not as oily as it used to be but I really want to find a way or product(s) that would help my face not be so oily or shiny during the day. Also, I don't wear makeup. 
Face Q&A
Hello ladies!      I am in desperate need of your help. I am on the hunt for a foundation (and/or concealer combo) that will not crease or break up on my face. Recently I've noticed that my old stand-by's tend to break up or crease heavily around my nose and eyes.       I've spent far more than I probably should have trying to find a combination of primers, foundations, powders etc to stop the issue. I've ensured that they're all match based (oil, water), tried some YouTube techniques, even bought new brushes because I thought my beauty blender wasn't hacking it anymore.      I'm fed up and swimming in a sea of foundations that don't seem to want to cooperate. Any ideas and suggestions would be great!     Thank You!

My foundation/concealer has been flaking off under my eyes and leaving a spot without makeup which ruins my whole look, what can I do to stop this??
Makeup
A few years ago I bought my mother Dior Addict Lip Polish in Fresh Expert for Christmas and she loved it. She loved the color and the feel and everything about it. She asked me to get it again, but it appears to be discontinued. Is anyone familiar with this product and know of a good replacement product in a similar color? Thanks!
Acne
I've been maintaining my complexion with ProActiv which has done wonders for my skin.  Recently though, I will get flare ups and my face will still break out with stubborn acne that I can't get rid of for days or weeks using ProActiv and other spot treatments.  I was wondering which Kate Somerville product would be best for acne prone/oily skin: The Detox daily cleanser or the Eradikate mark foam-activated treatment?
Dry Skin
I've been using BareMinerals BarePro powder foundation for a few weeks now. Unfortunately, it's itchy and makes my skin feel tight. I'm not sure if it's the combination of the products I'm using or the BarePro itself that's irritating my skin but I really love this foundation and want to make it work. Here's my morning make up/skin care routine. - Cleanse with FAB's pure cleanser (morning and night) - Tone with Jurlique's rosewater spray (morning and night) - Moisturize with L'Octaine light moisturizer (morning and night) - Prime with BareMineral's original primer - Buff on BarePro - Buff on BareMineral's original Mineral Veil - Finish with Urban Decay's chill setting spray   What do y'all think? Is it the foundation I'm using or the primer?   
Acne
Does anyone know of any good products that can help get arid of stubborn acne?

Hair
Helloooo!! I am looking for a new hair dryer and I have a few questions and was wondering if anyone would be able to answer them. My first is the classic "ceramic or ionic" question. I have normal to thick wavy/curly hair that does take a bit more effort to blow dry smooth. I loooove volume and I read somewhere that ceramic is better for volume but I feel like ionic would be better for my hair type because it's curly. Additionally, I can imagine that I would be able to create the desired amount of volume with a little help from my plumping mousse and velcro rollers if I had an ionic dryer. I also keep seeing words like "tourmaline" "nano titanium" and "titanium", can someone please clarify what they mean exactly?? I have my eye on the Babyliss Pro Nano Titanium Portofino (info is right here if you are not familiar  http://www.babylissus.com/product.php?pcID=206_153 &product_id=132 ) but I was also wondering which hair dryers you guys like the best/would be good for my hair type! Thank you One last thing, does anyone know any good hairsetters?? Babyliss makes hot rollers and I am looking for a nice set of PRO hot rollers, but it seems like not that many brands carry them, if you happen to know of any hot rollers that would be lovely. Thank you!! xoxo

My mom asked for a fluffy powder brush for Christmas and said that since she's getting older (late 40s) she can't just use the puff that comes with it anymore because it settles into lines so she needs a fluffy brush to blend it out. I was thinking about it and I think maybe she needs a primer instead (I'm going to get a brush anyways but I might also get her a primer). Are there primers that cater to her issue or is there a different solution?    side note: in terms of makeup she only uses a light layer of powder (I think it's l'oreal) and sometimes tinted lip balm, nothing else
Oily Skin
I have really oily skin and I am trying to find products to help balance it and also a foundation that is best for oily skin. I use Make Up Forever Mat Velvet + Mattifying foundation but I do not feel it is really doing much for me. Any Recommendations? 
Combo / Normal Skin
I'm 21 years old and have had oily skin - no doubt in the world that my face is an oil slick. Within the last year I have noticed my skin starting to have dry areas as well as oil patches. I have no idea if this is how my skin has developed or I'm using products that are just making me dry. I have only had a handful on instances in which a product managed to make me dry.   Any suggestions on what skin care/ makeup i can use? I'm almost hesitant to completely change into combo products because I'm worried that this is just a weird time for me

Hair
Hello everyone! I am ten months postpartum and in need of product recommendations to encourage my very long, fine hair to grow back. It started falling out like crazy after my little guy was born (as it does to everyone who's had a baby). I wear it in a ponytail/messy bun most days, but on occasion I'll straighten it or style it in a donut bun, and all I can focus on are the little devil horns all around my face from new growth. It's lost a lot of body, and while I don't usually go for "lift"-style volume, I do miss the little that I did have. Does anyone have a product that they love? I don't wash my hair every day (usually 2-3x a week) and haven't for a long time (except when the munchkin was a very newborn and I needed to feel a little bit human!). It does tangle fairly easily, and I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I actually don't brush it very often, either. Thanks!
Face Q&A
Hey there! I currently am trying to find a new everyday foundation as my lovely KVD is quite heavy and my skin is starting to react to it, maybe because it's getting cold outside, I don't know.   I am pretty pale, like ghostly, more on the pink side. I'd really love to see swatches of Cover FX in N0 and in P10, MUFE HD and Water Blend in R210, and anything that could be like, REALLY pale and pinkier, next to KVD's foundation in L42 or MUFE Mat Velvet in #15. Actually, I'm not even sure if R210 is very pale, I only tried Y205 a whole day and I didn't feel like my usual self because it is yellow.   I really need a light coverage. I also still have my white mixer if I can't get my hand on something perfect, tho I'd prefer not having to use a lot. Thank you!
