Hello! If I just took the Skin tone test in a Sephora store, and they recommended me to buy the Cover Fx foundation in the N 30 tone, what is my color tone?? Thank you!!!
Face
I have never bought high end foundation so i do not know my actual skin tone in this brand. The drug store foundations makes my face look caked on. i really hate that. 
Beauty Insider
So, not sure if this is true (I'm always sceptical of what I'm told in this store), but I was told this last week:   Rouge cards are being "phased out."   I qualified for Rouge for the first time in November 2016, when Sephora.ca and both of the  only 2 stores in my province were sold out of Rouge welcome kits. I was told by one of these stores to keep checking back for next year's gift, because my account would still say I hadn't received my kit yet and I'd get it as soon as next year's arrived.   Now, both of these stores - not sure about your locals - are well known for treating you differently based on what colour Beauty Insider card you produce, so I was SUPER excited to get my red card. I didn't even particularly care which welcome gift I got, 2016 or 2017, as long as I  finally  got my red card.   After multiple tries, the 2nd store FINALLY told me they had the new kits... But they checked my account, and "it says you're not eligible."   They made me stand there at the counter and go back through 2 months worth of emails to find the one that said "go pick up your welcome kit"... Despite having shown them an email for an "in-store" promo code - with VIB Rouge at the top of the email - that they also said they didn't have.    Eventually, I was given my kit, and when I asked if my Rouge card was in it, I was told:   "Oh, they don't have them anymore. They're phasing out the red cards, and are planning to eventually get rid if the silver and black ones too, because they want everyone to use the app instead."   At this point I was so peeved I just left... and got home to find a) it was the 2016 gift they'd been saying they'd been out of for 2 months, and b) it didn't have a Rouge card in it anyway, but said "congrats on another year at the top."   So who knows how much of this was just BS, but needless to say I am already over this Rouge thing. After years of watching people with red cards be treated like gold in my local stores, while I could barely get help, I'm wondering what why I ever thought this would be worthwhile in the first place...

Makeup
Hi there I'm looking for a new foundation or BB Cream or CC cream...   Past makeup history:   I've used Dr. Jart Black Label+ for a long time now, and I like the texture. But my skin hasn't seen the sun for eons (the photo I have included is actually from summer months gone by). I'm white enough to begin with,and it just seems too gray lately.   A woman at Sephora had me buy Peter Thomas Roth's CC Cream, which I initially liked on my wrist. But after getting home and putting it on my face in the daylight, it was WAYYY too orange.   I've been thinking of trying the Koh Gen Do foundations (either the Aqua or Moisturizing, not sure which yet), but I'd love some opinions on the texture and formula for sensitive skin. Current   Current State of Skin: My Sephora Color IQ has been done a couple of times, always hovering between 1Y01 and 1Y03. I *think* I have cool undertones (pink-ish always looks better than orange-ish). I have semi acne-prone and VERY sensitive skin.   Ok, that's it All input appreciated!

I've been using Mary Kay for several yrs as I have sensitive aging skin but would like to change my skincare regimen as I'm looking for more dramatic results and I've heard positive reviews for drunk elephant. What would you recommend for late thirties with some sun damaged sensitive skin?

Face
I am interested in trying out some new foundations, and haven't had any luck at the drugstore. I know that a lot of higher end brands tend to come out with a wider colour selection of foundations, concealers, etc. I am very pale with yellow undertones, and my skin is normal to dry. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you!

Hi everyone.   Okay, so whenever I put under-eye concealer on it doesn't stay on my face for even an hour or two without dissipating. I use a colour corrector under my concealer ( Smashbox color correcting stick ) to cover my dark circles, followed by Kat Von D's Lock-it creme conealer that I lightly set with powder ( Laura Mericer loose setting powder ). I also set all my whole face with UD's All nighter setting spray . I do not use a lot of the corrector and concealer - I am very careful about that.   Even though I do all of this, when I look in the mirror at work about 2hrs later, my concealer looks all broken up and strange, like it's wearing off my face or textured or something. I don't rub my eyes, so I don't get it.  It really bothers me! I just can't seem to get that smooth, even look like all the beauty vloggers seem to achieve.   Does anyone know how I can fix this or what is going on?? I would really appreciate the help!!! 
Antiaging
The only reason I'm using L'oreal Revitalift and Garnier Ultra Lift is because they have retinol but I'm on the hunt for a more natural product with retinol; both of these products burn my skin when it's even minorly irritated and they're obviously full of chemicals; any suggestions for a frugal person? There was also something besides retinol which is supposed to be the second best thing for the skin but obviously I'm new to all this so thanks for any help with any of this!
Hair
Is there synthetic tape-in hair extensions available? I have some ethical issue with the regular extensions and am even more so grossed out by the wearing some poor person's hair aspect :/

I suffer from really bad creasing, smile lines! I love to do my makeup but I'm now at the point I of stopping doing my makeup because of these lines. Is there ANYTHING out there that can stop/prevent these. Thanks x
Acne
I made a purchase of skin care for $220 on 20th jan and I was suppose to receive 2x points for the purchase, the 2x points did not get credited to my account. Please help.
Combo / Normal
Hello,   I am going to be 19 years old this February. I would honestly classify my skin type as normal. It rarely gets oily or dry. I do have breakouts occasionally along my jawline and forehead.   My night time skin care routine begins with me removing my makeup using a neutregena makeup remover. Then, I wash my face using philosophy's purity cleanser (1 to 2 times a week I'll substitute this step for an exfoliator.) After cleansing, I sometimes apply a mask (I do this about 2 to 3 times a week). Then after that, I tone my face using a glycolic acid toner. I then apply my serum (I use a vitamin c serum currently but I'm going to get a retinol serum soon and then I will just use either serum every other day and switch them out.) I then moisturize using an origins moisturizer. Then I apply tea tree oil as a spot treatment to my acne (I heard that oils need to be applied after moisturizer??) Lastly, I spray my face with a little rosewater.    So, my daily skincare routine is basically wash, tone, serum, moisturizer, spot treatment, and then rosewater.   My questions are:   1.) Is this an effective skin care routine for my age? Am I using too much products? I know it's a lot, but I want to ensure I have healthy skin when I'm older. 2.) Should I substitute anything out or add anything? Is there any products that anybody recommends?  3.) Lastly, does spraying rosewater at the end of my routine actually do anything? I honestly can't tell if it's making a difference.

Lips
What is the best lip treatment that Sephora carries which makes them smooth, erasing lines? It should also be a product with no animal testing and natural as possible. Thanks!

Hey guys- I'm looking for suggestions on some products for my very dry, sensitive skin, with some redness as well, more specifically an exfoliant. My skin can tend to get flaky around certain areas, but with my current skin routine it's been better. But I have yet to find an exfoliant that I really like. Do you have any suggestion? Some I've been looking at: Yu-Be Foaming Skin Polish Origins Refreshing Scrub Cleanser (according to reviews, it cleanses more than exfoliates??) Origins Modern Friction Nature's Gentle Dermabrasion Caudalie Gentle Buffing Cream   My most basic current routine: Philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleanser May Coop's Raw Sauce First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration (And some nights) Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask   THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!!

Beauty Insider
I have had a beauty insider card for a while and an online account, however the purchases I have made in stores over the past few months have not been showing up on my account? I gave them my email and birthday at the store but something just isn't seeming to be connected. 
Face
Hi! So I've tried two high end foundations that were suggested to me by beauty store associates and neither of them work for me! I first tried Two Faced's Born This Way, and it was fine but not nearly enough coverage for me. Now I'm using KVD's Lock It, and at first it was perfect- perfect coverage, stayed on all day. But then it started oxidizing throughout the day and it would melt off my face, which feels really gross and looks even worse. I use it in combination with KVD's Lock It concealer under my eyes because I have dark circles (a product for that would be nice to know too!). I was just wondering if anyone has suggestions as to what foundation could give me full coverage and stay on all day without looking blotchy and discolored by the end of the day! I probably have combination skin but more oily. I live in NC so I need something that can stand up to humidity! Any other products (primers, concealers, etc.) that would help my problem would be greatly appreciated too! Thanks!
Face
So...I've decided to change foundations.  I can't decide which I should try though.  I tried the KVD liquid/primer sample and was impressed with how it didn't break me out (this is a new experience in liquid and bb/ccs for me -- and I put that sample through the ringer!), but I prefer powders (I don't really want the sort of coverage liquids/creams give me on a day to day basis and ease of application is nice when you're running out the door to work). But I'm also intriqued by the Tarte Amazonian powder... Which would be best for: 50 year old, who doesn't need a full coverage (but likes to have that option for special occasions), has sensitive/combo skin that breaks out if offended by something, and needs something that will hold up for at least 8 hours at work? I haven't been color iq'd (and don't really have access), but I'm one of those difficult very light olive skin tones (I have brown/dark green eyes and, well had now it's 50% grey, brown/black hair with both dark red highlights) -- the KVD Medium 54 was about a shade too dark and a bit too yellow looking for this time of year, blended well (minimal line) but my son said I looked like I had a bit of a tan (but at least it didn't look too pink, orange, or ashy/chalky on me -- which I've had problems with in the past).    
Eyes
I was planning on using my regular colors that I use in my crease all the time. A light brown and then a darker brown in the very outside corner of my eye. Am I wrong?   Will my regular crease colors go well with yellow and green eye shadow? Thanks for any and all help.

I'm looking at products like "Skin Inc. Pure Revival Peel" and "Boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel" for general skin care and keeping dead skin off my face etc. My concern is this, they all say that they brighten your skin and I am a brown skinned girl who likes looking tanned. If I use this, how much will it actually lighten my skin? Is there a better product to use for those of us who don't want to look lighter? Your advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks
