Hi all! I'm a lovely Canadian lady who would really love to get my hands on the new Lorac Mega Pro 3. But it's not available in Canada and I cannot order it from Ulta. Would an amazing American beauty addict be willing to pick one up for me? Of course, I pay the palette and shipping to my (apparently) very distant country! TIA!
I have found nice products for my dry skin problem i believe they are helping but im currently breaking out on my chin daily? I keep using the products but every day i have a new one. they are the painful kind under the skin. do I need to change what I am using or do i need to add a acne treatment? I dont want to get dry again tho.
For the past few months, my foundation will be disgusting after a few hours of wear. I clean my brushes, i use a primer and moisturize. i have dry skin and exfoliate atlas twice a week. But i don't know what is causing my make up to look like this! Now it'll look horrible from the start, when it used to be a few hours into it when it would separate. Please help. I don't even want to wear makeup any
hello, my name is Nicaury. now, my questions are, I'm dark, but not VERY dark, more like a milk chocolate, caramel type of dark, my foundation shade is 310 in the fit me foundation, and my problem is that the highlighters I use are from drugstores and they always show up very light on my face, they fade as well and it has a lot of fall out. I do not have money to buy my own make up, I do not have a job and I have a huge dream and goal of having my own room. which highlighter would you recommend for someone that's the same skin tone as mine? how to I apply for a job at sephora? how to I create a resume even though I am not experienced at make up? the way I learned was by watching make up videos and teaching myself. thank you for your time.
I am 26, I have very fair/sensitive/oily skin. I finally just tackled the acne issue by using a retinol cream at night (Kate Spade's RetAsphere) but no matter what I do, I cannot seem to clear up the congestion and bumps all over my forehead and cheeks/chin and now I see some are appearing on my neck! I have tried the Clairsonic, ended up returning it because it did nothing, I've done a Salicylic Acid Chemical Peel with SkinCeuticals and she convinced me to buy the Clairsonic again a year later - still isn't changing anything. I have eliminated dairy/gluten/sugar from my diet. Exfoliating doesn't work, Josie Maran Argan Oil Moisturizer doesnt work. Glamglow Supermud doesn't work either. Organic/natural products do nothing. I've tried a bunch of different foundations. I'm looking for someone who might have similar skin as me and has had this issue. I'm an actress, so when the camera is close, it's very embarrassing! The photo I have posted is kind of an extreme angle and lighting and the camera REALLY picks up the bumps - it doesn't look that bad when I'm in normal light and at a normal distance from people. Any suggestions are wildly helpful. Thank you!!
I have long, thick 3a hair that I really can't stand managing. My curls tend to be dry, frizzy, and undefined. Oddly, when I wear it straight it looks shiny and healthy. I've worn my hair in a wet top-knot for the last three months due to the heat and humidity and amount of time required to style my hair straight. Additionally, I wear a surgical hat all day; it leaves me no motivation to "do" my hair. I'd like to find a routine that allows me to style by diffusing or air-drying and will last 2 days with products that refresh curls. I can't skip washing more than one day since I have an oily scalp. I'm using Lush Curly Whirly shampoo but am open to a new conditioner. For me, Lush American Cream was lackluster. I prefer a conditioner that I can feel providing more slip and detangling. I've tried so many that feel like I put nothing on my hair. I've also tried DevaCurl, Ouidad (albeit, not all), and B & B styling products...all were disappointing. I prefer not to individually wind all my curls...considering my hair is under a hat all day anyway. I just hate looking homeless when I take it off. I know I'm asking a lot here
Hello! Every time I use eyeliner, it smudges and doesn't show. I get near my lash line, but when I look in the mirror, the eyeliner is gone. and after I blink a couple times, it smudges. What type of eyeliner should I get and what should be its base? So far, I've been using the Marc Jacob's liquid eyeliner from the birthday gift set. I've been told to just put eyeliner on my water line, but it really just makes me tear up too much and is uncomfortable to wipe off. I would also like the black to be very pigmented. Thanks! The picture is my eyes without any makeup. There is a little bit of my eye crease visible only in my inner corners.
Hey all! I am travelling to Germany (Berlin) and Italy(Venice Verona Florence Rome and maybe Bologna) in a couple of weeks and was wondering what beauty items some of you might have snagged there that are not available in Canada! I know sometime ago (in the summer) someone had mentioned she will post her beauty hauls from Europe but I cannot seem to find anything. If anyone has ideas or can direct me to the right thread that would be great! Thanks a lot! Correction, I meant Italy and Germany. I understand Germany is part of Europe!

Hi. I have heard so much positive about the Kat Von D Lock it Foundation, and i really ant to buy it.But i have a problem. I don`t live anywhere near a store where i can buy it, and i don't know which colour that fits my skin tone I use Mac studio sculpt foundation spf 15 in shade NC20. Maybe by knowing this, you guys can find the right colour for me from Kat Von D? <3
Hello! I am having a hard time choosing the perfect foundation for my skin color. I think I am cool toned and I have slightly dry skin. Can someone recommend a foundation that will be suitable for my skin type and color? Also as you can see in the photo I have a lot of random blotches of redness. Does anyone know a good skin care product that can cure my redness. I also dislike how I have little little pimples as small as my pores! What are these kind of pimples called and how can I get rid of them?? Sorry for so many questions, I look forward to your advice!
Hi All! This is probably a tl;dr, but here's the set-up: I have very fair, middle-aged skin and have rosacea. The derm has me use Metro cream in the morning after washing my face and another product in the evening after washing my face. I have an oily t-zone and the rest is normal and not dry, so I don't wear moisturizer over the Metro. I stick to oil-free products because my skin doesn't respond well to products with oil. I generally use a primer over the Metro cream and then do one of two things: 1. one primer (Hourglass mineral primer) or two primers (Hourglass + Benefit Pore Professional), dab on Estee Lauder Doublewear concealer, set with a light dusting of Shiseido loose powder, then spray on UD setting spray; OR 2. blend a bb-cream (too many to name) or foundation (Maybelline Fit Me or YSL Touche Eclat Radiance Awakening Foundation) over a primer, dab on concealer, set with loose powder, then spray on setting spray. Here's the issue and it's driving me wild: Every concealer, primer, every bb cream, and every foundation I have tried - drugstore and higher end - slides off my face after 2 hours. The makeup will be creased into my smile lines and resisting around my nose and foreheads so that it doesn't look uniform and highlights the pores. It doesn't matter what combination of products I use: same scary result. Bah! I wear face makeup to have a uniform canvas, to cover red spots and melasma here and there, and to hide large pores. I need to look professional and polished, but not overly made up. I've searched the Sephora boards and the web for recommendations for this particular issue, but everything I have found deals with either covering breakouts, hiding flushing, or overcoming a hot face. Happily those are not my issues. I welcome any help to finding a combination of makeup products that will stay put over Metro cream!! Thank you!
I have struggled with dry, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember (why do highlights have to suck my hair dry of all nutrients, why?!). I’ll never forget begging my hairstylist for advice and being told that I needed Moroccanoil if I wanted to save my hair. Since then I’ve been obsessed so I am excited to see Moroccanoil hair and body products at Sephora and even more thrilled to have gotten the opportunity to get the inside scoop from Carmel Tal, Co-Founder of Moroccanoil!
Tell me a little about the story behind the brand.
I was fortunate to discover an oil-infused treatment while traveling, which soon became our signature Moroccanoil Treatment once we perfected the formula with a team of experts. After experiencing dramatic results in my own hair, I embarked on a mission to bring this remarkable product to North America. What began as a single, revolutionary product that pioneered a new category in the beauty industry has grown into a full line of hair, body and sun care products, all infused with nourishing, antioxidant-rich argan oil—signature to the brand.
Dedicated to producing the highest quality, performance-driven products that provide a unique, transporting sensorial experience, Moroccanoil has grown into an iconic beauty brand in less than a decade. Moroccanoil is a reflection of what I want from a beauty company as a consumer: authenticity, effectiveness and ease of use.
Does your product work on all hair types? Please share any tips for specific hair types (fine, frizzy, damaged, thick, curly, coily etc.)!
Yes, there are Moroccanoil products perfect for every hair type!
For fine, limp hair, Moroccanoil volumizing products are fantastic for plumping strands and adding sexy volume!
For damaged hair, we have incredible hair repair products that will transform and restore your hair, so it looks and feels vibrant, shiny and healthy again.
For runway-gorgeous texture, our texturizing products are phenomenal–you can easily achieve effortless, windswept looks.
For hair that simply needs extra hydration, our hydration-focused Moroccanoil products provide replenishing nutrients to deeply hydrate hair while maintaining its natural moisture balance.
Are there any other interesting uses for Moroccanoil Treatment aside from hair? Our BeautyTalkers are big fans of the product and would love to know if it safe to use on their face and skin.
Our Moroccanoil Treatment is recommended for hair only. Our Pure Argan Oil from Moroccanoil Body™, however, can be used from head to toe—everywhere from the face and body to hair…even cuticles and nails! That being said, the development of our Moroccanoil Body™ and Moroccanoil Sun™ collections were natural next steps for us following the success of our hair care line, as we wanted to satisfy consumer desire for luxurious treatments that not only transform hair, but the skin as well.
I love the scent of Moroccanoil products! Will it ever be available as a fragrance?
It’s a possibility! In the meantime, you can indulge in the fragrance from head to toe with Moroccanoil Body™ products in our signature Fragrance Originale scent.
If you were stranded on a desert island, which three products would you want to have with you?
I never go anywhere without my Moroccanoil Treatment—an amazing multi-use product that works as a styling, conditioning and finishing tool!
I would definitely need to have our Pure Argan Oil because it has so many uses—–it’s great for the face, body, nails and cuticles! I add a few drops to my moisturizer every day—it has so many anti-aging benefits!
Moroccanoil Sun Oil SPF 15 , because sun protection is so important and this one features antioxidant-rich argan oil and Vitamin E that nourish and hydrate, while protecting skin from the sun’s harmful rays. It’s also delicately fragranced with a beautiful Monoï scent that reminds me of my childhood days at the beach in Chile!
For someone who loves your hair products but is unfamiliar with your body care line, Moroccanoil Body™, what products would you recommend they start with?
Moroccanoil Dry Body Oil in our signature Fragrance Originale is the perfect first product to try—it absorbs so quickly and weightlessly so skin looks and feels silky, smooth and hydrated.
Moroccanoil Body Buff is also a fantastic first product to try—it will transform your skin, providing instant nourishment and lasting hydration. The Fleur d’Oranger variant features naturally exfoliating orange peel that polishes away dead skin cells.
We have three amazing Mediterranean-inspired fragrances in our Body collection that transport the senses so you can choose your preferred fragrance according to your mood— Fleur d’Oranger, Fleur de Rose and our signature beloved scent Fragrance Originale. Fleur de Rose is a modern rose scent that embodies sensuality and romance, while Fleur d’Oranger awakens and invigorates the senses.
Hi! I am looking for a new foundation and think I have decided on YSL's Touche Eclat. I apparently have pretty sensitive skin as I have tried Armani Luminous Glow, Laura Mercier's foundation and tinted moisturizer, and Smashbox Camera Ready BB Water and they all gave me either full on break outs or tiny bumps all over my forehead. Chanel's Vitalumiere Aqua was actually ok, but it didn't provide much cover. Has anyone else with sensitive skin used YSL's foundation? Thanks!
Hi! Ok I apologize for the possible rambling ahead. I need an entire new skin care and makeup routine. For the past 3 months or so my face has gone to hell! It started with those tiny bumps on my forehead and chin area, then my pores got larger, and now I have full on breakouts on my cheeks. I don’t know if it’s hormonal or what- I have had 2 babies in the past 3 years, stopped breastfeeding completely about 7 months ago, and currently have the Mirena IUD.. Getting the IUD out isn’t really an option I’m wanting to explore yet (I am horrible at taking the pill). I was prescribed Ziana by my dermatologist- it worked for about 6 months and then I feel like it stopped working. So right now I am using Cetaphil Oil Control Foam Wash and their Daily Facial Moisturizer. Since starting the was my face has gotten really irritated, red and dry and my breakouts haven’t changed at all. I use the Glam Glow Supermud twice a week, and that will help with the little bumps, but they always come back.. which makes me think it could be my makeup. I use Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation and that’s about it. I’ve been doing some research and think I know what I want to get, but I am also afraid that I will be too harsh on my skin. My face has become quite oily the past couple months whereas before it was normal/combination. This is what I’m thinking of, I can’t decide on which moisturizer would be good so any suggestions are appreciated: Skin Care- First Air Beauty Cleanser Sunday Riley Good Genes Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil Glam Glow Supermud Gross Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel Makeup- YSL Touche Eclat foundation Sorry for my long post, I am clueless when it comes to anything beauty related. I really appreciate any and all help/suggestions. Thank you!
Hi! I'm looking for a face mask (i've never tried any before) to help refresh and maybe tighten my skin/fine lines. I'm in my 30's (caucasion) and don't have problematic skin or anything, i just feel my skin is dull and tired. Any suggestions?? TIA!!
Anyone knows when the Tarte holiday 2016 collection/sets will be available in stores and online for Sephora Canada? The collection was supposed to launch last tuesday, same time as the US site but nothing is up for Canadians :/ thanks! kary
Hello Sephora! I had a super busy Spring and Summer with school and finals. My birthday was in April and I forgot to pick up my Sephora birthday gift. Since it is September, would I be able to pick it up now?
The last week my sephora pages and basket keep refreshing, making it impossible to shop. Beauty talk seems unaffected. Is anyone else experiencing this or is something wrong with my chrome browser or computer?
I'm a 19 year old college student and I have dry skin and my face gets red and little bumps under my skin, a couple red pimples sometimes massive but usually a medium size and acne scares and large pores. I am currently using first aid beauty facial cleanser with my mia Clarisonic and I moisturize with Cerave face lotion but my skin has been getting worse ever since I got back to school. Any recommendations for these issues?
