What is everyone's opinion on REN products? If you've used any of their products, what have you used? Are they effective? What type of skin are the products best for?  Thanks in advance!

Face/Blotting Powder
Hello all I would like to try a new powder. I've been using Cover FX Blotting powder in medium over my foundation and BB cream. My skin type is oily that's why I would like a powder or blotting powder whatever they are called these days lol. Thanks for the help! Also if you could recommend a face brush along with the powder that would be great.

I almost found my HG foundation, and there's Bismuth Oxychloride.
Oh god.  Today, I tried out Benefit Hello Flawless foundation sample I've got weeks ago. Recently, I was actively searching for a foundation that suits me better than Nars Sheer glow and was considering between Chanel and TF. When I applied this HF foundation, I thought I found my HG foundation. It was really the best foundation I've ever worn...so smooth, right coverage, my skin looked flawless! and...   After washing my face, I found some red bumpy breakouts (whitehead-ish, something you can easily pop up, not a big inflammatory one) on my face...and when was the last time this happened to me? It was when I used Bare Minerals mineral powder foundation. Wait, is this Bismuth Oxychloride? I did my research, and yes, there you are!    I'm just so sad. I immediately ordered this foundation from Sephora since I just knew! it's the perfect foundation..but didn't know that it's that plus Bismuth Oxychloride. I was just a step away, and now I know I have to return it. SO SAD!

Help me find my color for the Anastasia brow powder duo
I'm Asian with tan/ olive skin and black hair. I'm interested in the Anastasia brow powder duos but am unsure of which color to get. I prefer my brows to be about 1-2 shades lighter than my hair color, something that doesn't look harsh and looks very natural. Right now I'm leaning towards the colors brunette/dark brown and ash brown. Would either of these work or would another color be better?

Contouring & Highlighting
Hey Girls!   I've been looking into the highlight & contouring style these days, I've watched videos on how to do it myself. I'm not very good at it either, and I am a beginner with that technique. So I'd like to advance my makeup skills.    What do you suggest I use? I hate anything that comes in a powder palette. I prefer creamy palettes. Any advice will do.    Thank You :-)

What shade to try in Laura Mercier foundation since I'm fair and pink undertoned...
Hi! I was wanting to try a  Mercier tinted moisturizer but since I am a fair redhead and I know I'm tough to match I'm not sure which shade to order. I use Make Up Forever HD in 110 in winter and 115 in summer if that helps. Have any ideas?

Sanitas skincare!!
Hello! I have been looking for a new skin care regimine and have been out of luck after buying expensive recommendations that do nothing at all. My skin is very dry but I don't like an extremely dewy look with my makeup! I have heard of the Sanitas skin care and although it is not well known I have heard great reviews, has anyone tried this line or have a recommendation for other products in an dry skin care routine?

Pressed Powder Recommendation
Can you recommend a great pressed powder especially to use to prevent midday shine? I've used MAC in the way past but haven't needed it as much as my skin ages and has become more dry. However, lately I have leaned more towards the natural & mineral make-up brands to deal w/my sensitive and more reactive skin.  It could be my moisturizer but I seem to have more shine, especially on my forehead now during the day.  I have fair to light medium skin w/red undertones.

Need advice on using new PTR products
Hi all, I just used the PTR unwrinkle pads, retinol fusion pm serum, and laser-free moisturizing gel cream.(They came in a kit). My face is a bit tingly so I know I definitely shouldn't use them every night. My question is two- fold. 1. Does anyone have experience, good or bad with his products and 2. How long should I give my skin time to "adjust" to the new products before deciding if the products are right for my skin?

Matte Foundation Help!
I need help!  I feel like I have tried every foundation out there and I have yet to find my holy grail foundation.  I am looking for a full coverage, matte foundation that will make me look every bit the photo-shopped, airbrushed beauty I see in the Sephora.com pictures.  I have tried Lancôme Teint D'Idole (beautiful, but made my face break out), MUFE Mat + Mattifying (just no), Tarte (too thick), NARS Luminous (not matte enough), Hourglass (not full coverage enough), Cover FX (not full coverage enough), Urban Decay Naked (very close and might be my go-to if I can't find anything better)...   I am thinking of trying one of these next... what would you recommend?  Or is there something out there that I'm missing?  Or should I go to a powder foundation?  - Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide - Smashbox Studio Skin 15 hour Wear - Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation - MUFE HD Invisible Cover

I don't have any experience with that foundation, but I guess it's saying reapply every 2 hours to get the full sunscreen effect.  see post

Q. Hanae Mori perfume sample help please!
Hello! I got a sample of a Hanae Mori perfume a while ago (either 2 or 3 months ago, I would say) and it doesn't say which one it is on the little white spray bottle it came in. It's not on My Purchases either as it appears to have been sent to me in lieu of another sample I asked for. Does anyone have any idea of which one it could be? I found a thread here with a possible answer but it's from a few years back HALP! Thank you! ^_^

Finding mineral/natural foundation and tinted moisturizer?
I use the Eminence line of skincare Products; so I am looking for a good mineral foundation and/or tinted moisturizer that is natural as well.  I am 47 with aging skin, but I treat it well.  Occasional breakouts due to menopausal hormonal changes.  Have heard Tarte is good, but would like a professional opinion.

Scared to give a discount ??
 went into a sephora in Toronto today and when I went to go purchase my things, the cashier asked me " if I've gotten sephora emails" i told her yes, after that handed her my rouge card. She did not even take 15% off my order, after I asked her why she then proceeded to tell me that thats why she asked if I've gotten sephora emails but she never stated if i got any codes for the sale. Im sorry but does this make sense ? not only am I a loyal rougie , other sephora stores have a code scanner at the back that automatically take off 15% off after seeing your VIB or ROUGE card. I don't think this sale is a secret, seemed like they were scared to give me a discount.    *She had to refund my whole order and do it again THEN scanned a code thing at the back of the desk like I thought and gave me the discount *

Anti-aging products to start using at 18?
Hello everyone I'm 18, almost 19, but I'm already interested in starting to use some anti-aging products mostly as a preventative measure. I already use moisturizer every day and the Philosophy Hope in a jar for eyes which I really like. Are there any other products you would recommend  that I could add on to my regimen to help prevent aging? Btw my skin is oily and sometimes sensitive.

Does anyone have any suggestions for dupes?   I really like the product but not the price tag for the amount you get. I've purchased the .5 oz twice now (is currently $22) and like the results but would love a cheaper alternative, hopefully one with more product that is more bang for your buck.
