Super Oily Skin-Need foundation ideas!
My skin is super oily.  I have a hard time trying to find a foundation that will stay on all day and not look like a greasy mess.  I am currently using Bare Minerals bareskin foundation.  I love the coverage but it does not help my oily skin and almost makes it worse.  I have also tried Naked foundation too and found it doesnt have enough coverage for me.  Help!

Bumps on face...clogged pores that stand out with foundation. HELP.
Hi everyone! I have acne, acne scars and annoying white bumps on my face. It's awful and I NEED help. My acne is not bad--It covers with makeup and I love to wear makeup so it isn't a huge problem. Of course I try to decrease it but it doesn't drive me so crazy anymore. I mostly have them on my chin. Forehead is clear and cheeks were clear until I started getting these awful bumps. I don't even remember when it started I just remember putting on my makeup and looking in the mirror and being ilke "WTF."    Every time I go to sephora or a skin care person they say I need to EXFOLIATE! I do now... but they are still there. I want smooth skin that will look even more flawless with makeup.  So I have finally decided to buy a clarisonic. (Do you guys recommend this for my condition????!) I am thinking perhaps the deep pore or acne clarifying brush will be best but want to hear your experiences!! I don't really have oily skin...it's normal. Couple of blackheads on my nose here and there.   So please help!!! Has anyone else had this problem? What did you do? Did the clarisonic help???

I want a lightweight moisturizer without SPF
Hello - My favorite lightweight moisturizer was discontinued (Shiseido The Skincare).  I seriously hate moisturizer that is heavy on my face. Especially, because I put tinted moisturizer over it.  I also don't understand the need for the moisturizer to have an SPF AND the foundation to have an SPF.  That's a lot of Zinc that seems like overkill to me.   I tried the white lucent moisturizer. It is lightweight but I am not in love with what it does to my face.   Can anyone recommend a fragrance-free moisturizer that is lightweight and contains no SPF protection or very little?

Outstanding October Hauls!!
It's midnight in New York and you know what that means... it's October!! I don't care if I'm in California, I'm still making this post hahaha.    I started my haul at CVS because my sister had $10 rewards for beauty and I used that towards lipsticks for my kit.    I got Wet n Wild lipsticks in Sugar Plum Fairy, Wine Room, and Mauve Outta Here. I also got a Milani lipstick in High Voltage. I paid $2 for 4 lipsticks!   I went to Ulta to pick up NYX Dark Circle Corrector and the Essence Lipstick (4th one above) in Wear Berries   THEN, I went to Sephora to pick up a free deluxe sample of Bare Minerals lipstick in Speak Your Mind and my MUFE Birthday gift!     PS my birthday is October 18 hehe

Colourpop eye shadows?I
It seems like my YT home page has been inundated with reviews of these $5 Colourpop Super Shock cream eye shadows. They actually look quite lovely, but when I see everyone and their mother doing a review for something they were sent on YT, I tend to take those reviews with a heaping grain of salt. Has anyone actually tried these? The price is appealing at least.

Skin care/ sunscreen questions and a few life questions
I've probably spent the last half hour searching through BT's data base, as i'm trying to decide what skin care items that I want to invest in, when November's 20% off sale rolls around. I've found bits and pieces but nothing concise.    My first question is Sunscreen. What kind of skin-protecting product works well under makeup? I just (Sept. 21st) turned 27. (But I still look much younger) And in turn, I'm taking a good hard look at my life as well as my skin care regime and changing what I do not like about it.  I've never really used any type of sunscreen product under my makeup. And even though my foundation is spf 15, I do not feel like that it enough.   Secondly, Anti-aging skin care products. I'm thinking of trying Murad's "Essential-C" line. I'm trying to start preventative anti-aging care and to heal my skin from my past of dermatillomania. I figured this would kill to birds with one stone?   Also here's where the few life questions come in... (location: Ontario,Canada) I want to upgrade my highschool credits ( i graduated when i was 17 but didn't know what i wanted to be when i grew up and honestly just know actually came to a conclusion - it just took me 10 years to figure it out lol) Has anyone upgraded or got new credits before? What site did you use? I think I have to get chemistry, biology and probably math. I want to go to school to become a Vet Tech.    Snowboarding. Any advice for a beginner snowboarder? I have never even gone before. I do not have any equipment. I am starting from scratch, so please be gentle lol.   Well that's it! I'm not sure where to post this..

Deluxe and Foil Samples Traveling Box!
I posted a previous post about starting a traveling box with samples and deluxe samples and a few ladies were interested in doing one!  This is the 1st traveling box I am apart of and of course the 1st that I am starting.   So, we need to decide if we are going to do a medium or small flat rate box.     RULES  No used items.  No open items  DO NOT take more than you put in.  Let's keep this fun and fair  DO NOT take multiples of the same sample  PLEASE try not to keep the box more than 3 days  Make sure to send your address to the person listed above you  Once you send the box off, post the tracking number in this thread  ALL unused items allowed (well maybe not nail polishes if it will make the shipping costs go up)  Post a pic of what you take out, what you put in and what is left in the box before you send it off   We are going to have fun and try to keep this going as long as we can!   If you are interested in being in the box, I have a few spots left so post a pic of what samples you have in this thread to be added.   To start off, we are only going to have 10 people! 1. CuriousCannibal 2. MegEm 3.MLLECC 4. tessie84 5. Kittichick 6. NicoleFrat 7. NightKnight 8. Sweetxteeth 9. Nishcakes  10. Kariyava

Mixed messages: Do I really need an 'under-eye cream/serum'?
So after researching under-eye skin care, I am finding some controversy over whether we really need to purchase moisturizers specifically for the eye area or not.   What I am reading states that a good daytime face moisturizer or serum should be sufficient for the under-eye area.  The products specifically formulated for under-eye are just twice as expensive for less product.   Is this true in your opinion?   I have fine-lines under my eyes at age 46 that need moisture in order to resist the 'concealer creasing' that occurs throughout the day.   There's got to be a good daily moisturizer that does the trick without having to spend a fortune on these little bottles of eye cream/serum.   What do you think?

Most used products and the ones we always repurchase!
I am sure we all have some products that we use the most and then we "run" to Sephora (or other stores) to repurchase and stock up on it, with a thought - "Just in case or I am about to finish up my other one, so I might as well pick up a back up now... etc" .    What are your most used products, the ones you know you'll go and repurchase no matter what?    Mine are: - Anastasia Brow Wiz -  ohh boy - this is one of my little fave things that I use the most and I buy few of them a year, just because I use it so often. - Nars Creamy Consealer - does its job, so smooth and gives me the coverage I need! - When Travelmate face masque <3 - so amazing, portable, and  travel safe/mess free!!

Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks
I've been eyeballing the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks in Rose for quite some time now, adding it to my basket and then removing it again, repeatedly. Before I committed to the purchase, I wanted to ask some questions about it here, since the "Ask a Question" section on that product page says it's currently unavailable. The questions are thus: How sheer is the color? Does the product go on thick, like a full-on lipstick? Does the product look very natural, as it claims in the description? I own the Stila Convertible Color in Poppy, and while it is a beautiful shade, I find that the product is pretty thick. I'm looking for something that's going to be fairly sheer while still providing a good amount of color, but is natural-looking as well. I would be using this product just for lips, as I don't wear blush. Have any of you tried or bought this product, and if so, what are your opinions about it? Can you answer my questions regarding it? I would very much appreciate it!

Primer.
So I have a few primers, which I will probably keep messing around with anyway. But I use UD's Naked Skin foundation and lately it's been caking on my chin. I'm almost certain my technique is fine. I wash my face and moisturize beforehand. But now on my chin it just catches flakes of skin I can't even see. It's so frustrating because I need/want the coverage, but then you can totally tell I have foundation on.     So I need a good primer rec.

Worst Customer Service EVER!!!!
So let me start off by saying I never posted here before but after yesterdays horrible experience I didn't know anywhere else to go.  So yesterday I went to sephora on 34th st herald square. This store is known for its bad customer service and rude employees, its like that every time I go. No one can ever help you because the employees are always talking to each other and if you dare ask for help they always have an attitude as if you're bothering them.    I went to the store to buy a tria laser which Ive been wanting to buy for a while. As Im browsing for 30 minutes looking for it (no one has offered help nor can I even find someone to help me) I eventually make my way upstairs and finally I find it. As soon as I get near the tria laser I get this nasty look from an employee with glasses ( too bad I didn't get her name). So Im looking at the tester model and grab a box and she tells me with a nasty tone "you can't open that". I choose to ignore her since I wasn't opening the box and she knows that and nor were those my intentions. As Im holding the box and looking at the information on the box she rudely tells me in a horrible tone "its the same as the model except white" and then she rudely yells at me with a condescending tone "don't open that" once again, at this point I'm shocked at the way she's speaking to me that all I can say is "I know that". I was with mother and she too was shocked at how we were treated and spoken too.   The entire time she was staring us down as if we were gonna steal something or do something illegal. It was unbelievable. She was spying us on. She even followed us to the cash register. Even though at that point I felt like leaving and not buying anything or ever returning back the whole point we even went to sephora was so I could buy the tria laser. I did buy it but I felt really bad afterwards. Even when we were at the register she kept giving us dirty looks. I will say the cashier evangeline was nice to us.   Ive had bad experiences before but nothing like this. This tops the cake. Im not even excited to use my tria anymore since I can't help but think of the horrible way we were treated talked down to and looked at. I felt horrible walking out of that store. Im a paying customer so why am I being treated this way. I have been a customer of sephora for years and spent so much money, but never again. It really saddens me to say but I'll just take my business else where, where Im not treated like a criminal just because of the way I look. I really hope sephora fixes this so It doesn't happen to anyone else.

Looks like PinkTober is upon us. This means new items For Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Well, it's that time of the year again - the time when we get to buy special products for ourselves (and others) and possibly feel a little less guilty about spending, knowing that a portion of the money we spend goes to a worthy cause.    Breast Cancer is not just something for women to worry about, it is a disease that men can be diagnosed with too.   * I was hoping we could all post products that we find that support legitimate charities to raise money, Please feel free to post whatever you find.*  If you search "Beauty That Gives Back" here at Sephora you'll find a few cute items, I"m hoping there are more to come. I Just bought a pink Tweezerman tweezer - looks like it may need a BCA mate. Clinique and Sephora both offer "BCA Pink With a Purpose" Lipstick in a cute little case.   A Huge fave of mine is by Bobbi Brown - it's "Pretty Pink Ribbon Lip Gloss Collection" It's 4 glosses and they're gorgeous! (I'm hoping they're minty flavored - sometimes they do offer mint gloss - waiting on that info.) This one is really screaming my name! Estee Lauder usually does something as does Ford (they usually have special T-shirts.)   So many decisions to make, but it's so worth it. For a pinkaholic like me, this is a dream & a nightmare! But hopefully our purchases will help make other peoples true nightmares - past, present and future - turn into a dream come true.   So please feel free to add any other offers you may find.  Oh, just one other thing, please feel free to leave one of everything pink for me!   btw - As usual, sorry so long. I also hope the wording of this was okay, didn't want to use certain words that might upset someone or make light of this situation at all - I hope that came through.
