Has anyone tried this palette? Reviews for it look good on MUA and Emily N on youtube raved about it. 
Face
Help! For years the only foundation that has worked for me is Bare Minerals matte and either my skin is getting used to it or my pregnancy hormones are in overdrive since it's starting to make my pores look larger now and starting to cake after a few years of use.   I have red sensitive skin with acne scars and large pores. My skin tends to soak up my makeup throughout the day if it's NOT Bare Minerals and then I break out. I can usually use any powder on top. I always moisturize and use a primer beforehand.   What is a good foundation and primer that I can use for my skin? I've tried Nars, Urban Decay Naked, and MAC foundations but I always come back to Bare Minerals Matte. Any suggestions on primer, too?   Currently using: Bare Minerals Primer, Bare Minerals Matte Finish Foundation, Nars Powder Foudation for powder or Halo Hydrating Powder.

I got my color IQ done and was matched with Urban Decay Naked foundation #4. I love the product! Now I need a really great concealer to go with it. I prefer a tube and not a stick, and my skin is somewhat sensative. It will be used for under eye cirlces ane the occasional blemish. I have used Lancome's Effarneces (sp?) for years and am ready to change it up. Thanks!

I am in search of cream to help with the start of neck wrinkles. I have been using Algenist firming and lifting but not seeing the results like I once did. Any suggestions?

Makeup
I either get extremely dry to the point where my face looks like a desert, or I get extremely oily to the point where my face looks like I went swimming in the BP oil spill. I don't see a direct correlation between hormonal or environmental factors, and I wash my skin with oil controling soap along with using an oil controling lotion. Besides being completely at a loss when it comes to controlling my skin type, I am also a newbie at high end makeup. I would perfer a light to medium coverage but I would like buildability. Also, stating the obvious, it needs to be mattifying. Any suggestions of a foundation and finishing powder that can help me out? To set the record straight, no I was not attempting to go for the dewey look in any of these pictures

What is the most comparable blush color by NARS that is most equivalent to Smashbox "Heartbreak"?
Ask The Experts
I use mainly Perricone products, I am 46 and I do think my skin is in good condition, I take really good care of it.   My morning routine is a toner and serium (not Perricone), cold plasma face all over, neuropeptide eye cream, formula 15 on my forehead only, and a moisurizer for oily skin ( I used to use skin clear, which I loved but it's no longer available).  My question is do I need to be using the formula 15?   I feel I should be using something with retinol at my age, should I use another Perricone product?

Oily
I need some help with my super oily skin! By noon it's so bad that I am constantly wiping it away. I'm 30 and I had hoped that it would go away by now, but it seems to be getting worse. So far everything I have tried hasn't made a difference and I'm starting to feel desperate. I'm embarassed whenever I have an afternoon meeting because of it... to make things worse, a lady in one of my afternoon meetings actually pointed it out to me.
Beauty Confessions
Have you ever tried a shadow (or other color product) color that you thought would be awful and turns out that you love it?  I recently got the Too Faced Bonjour Summer palette for the nice compact size and the Mermaid shadow color (I love anything mermaid!). I tried the color Firefly today, it looks orange in the pan, and it turns out I'm in love! How 'bout you all? Have you accidently found something fabulous?
Eyes
I recently purchased Bare Minerals High Shine Eyeshadow in Rose Gold. It has been sitting in my makeup organizer for a while now and I would like to use it soon. Please give me any tips or good accent colors.                                                                                                                                                                                               -hayhayt10

I have some older UD lip liners (they were never opened and I just started using them again) in Bruise and Roach. I've tried to find similar colors, but am having no luck! Is anyone familiar with UD enough to remember these? Can you suggest a replacement for me?  I've tried Aqua Lips and Bare Escentuals, but neither worked for me. Help? I'm going to run out and I love the color/consistency of Urban Decay. And they don't have any colors like these anymore! Makeup addict problems!!!
Eyes
In the last few weeks sometimes I noticed my eye shadow wasn't appearing smoothly on my eyelids. I tried switching up my primer and using a MAC Paint Pot. Sometimes I'd get the wrinkling then, too. Now I'm starting to realize it's probably just me. I suppose people start getting crepey eyelids around 40. Any advice on a treatment or primer that will smooth them out? I've tried UD Antiaging and it wasn't that great as a primer.

Which MUFE full cover concealer shade should I get to match my Marc Jacobs genius gel super charged foundation in Golden Deep? I'm going to use it to cover up some acne scars not under the eyes. Thanks!

I am looking for a really good foundation and setting powder! I am 44, light olive tone, oily, and have uneven skin tone with a few sun spots. I would like some coverage but don't want to look greasy all day. I would like a finishing powder with some color that doesn't settle into my fine lines! Could you please give some recommendations because I can't find anywhere on your site to order a magic wand ))

Hello all!    I just started a new skincare routine. Previously I was using drugstore face wash, and moisturizer, and had pretty good skin other than a pimple here and there.    Now I've changed over to using a clarisonic the past month (haven't noticed much of a difference at all), as well as starting a new line of skincare from Ole Henrikson just over a week ago. I love the products, but I've been breaking out slightly on my cheeks, and around my chin. and my skin seems like it MIGHT be getting smoother.    I have normal skin, with the occasional pimple/s.    My question is-- When starting a new skincare routine, is it normal for my skin not to be at its best? Everyone is so divided on "purging" but maybe when you do a complete overhaul such as this, things are different? Do I have to break in the products, or is this line probably just not for me?    I know Sephora has a great return policy, but I'd be very embarrassed to return a whole skincare line... and I want to love these products.    Any advice/opinions are welcome.    What I'm using currently:  Clarisonic for Men (normal brush head) (Use 1-2x a day)  Ole African Red Tea Foaming face wash Ole Truth Serum  Ole Youth Activating Oil Ole Invigorating Night Gel  Ole Sheer Transformation Moisturizer   Twice a week the Ole Walnut Scrub and Lemon Strip Peel   Thanks in advance ladies and gentlemen!  Spoiler (Highlight to read)

I've noticed this with other UD eyeshadows in the the past, and same goes for the Naked2 Palette... There is always a ton of fallout when I apply it! I'm not sure if I'm applying it wrong or if there are some tips and ticks I could use to minimize the amount of fallout? Help please!

All Other Concerns
Does anyone use personal 'Home Facial Sauna/Steamer's?'   I really need brand/type recommendations. It's for a very small area, my closed eyes only. I have to wear/use a microwave rice bag mask, warm/hot compress 2x daily for 10 minutes. Been doing this for years, it's really been harsh for my eye area; contact dermatitis issues now. Thanks

Hi BT, I'm not really sure between Tinted Moisturizer and BB cream helps nursing skin like skin care does? Are there any benefits we get from using tinted moisturizer or BB cream? Thank you
Skincare Stories
Hi all! I wish to add some skin care products to my list since I’m about to be 20. I’m just so excited to welcome my 20 years old birthday and want to take care of my face. I just use cleanser, toner and lotion. I’m looking for eye gel and mask now. I wonder if it’s a little early to use them. My face is a little sensitive and slightly oily on T zone. I used to use Clinique, Jurlique, and Kiehl’s. I find Fresh Lotus Eye Gel and Rose Mask might be a good choice. Can you leave me some suggestions? I would love to know other choices, and also if you are the same skin type with me, can you tell me what skin care products you use?
All Other Concerns
I'm almost 26, have normal, sometimes blemish-prone skin, and have just developed my first sun spot on my cheek, near my nose and have been battling a dark patch on my upper lip for a while now as well. I exfoliate daily/every other day with Origins Instant Brightening pads & I use Ole Henriksen Truth Serum, and that combo seems to work well for acne marks, but not doing much good to my new sun spot or my "mustache"... Any recommendations on products to treat these issues? Spoiler (Highlight to read)

I went in to exchange a Bite Lip Tint for the new Bite Agave Lip Mask today. Simple, right? Wrong.   Everything was going swell until I reached the cashier (if you can call her that). She didn't have any trouble with the exchange transaction, but short-changed me. When I let her know that she owes me money, she sort of huffed and went to call her Manager to open the cash drawer for her. Once she gave me my change, she pushed my item into my hand without asking if I even needed a bag, and I went on my merry way.   I was on the subway when I decided to check out my new purchase. Lo and behold - it was my Lip Tint. You can guess which word went through my head. It starts with an F.   I had to take the subway back to Sephora right away, because, lord knows, I didn't want them blaming me for any of this mess.   I arrived back at checkout, get to the same cashier, and told her what happened. Her Manager comes over once more, and has the nerve to ask me why I didn't check that the item was the right one! Am I responsible for your badly trained employees that can't differentiate between two different boxes and can't do basic math?   In the end, the manager grabbed me a new Agave Lip Mask, and my cashier girl rolled her eyes at me.    What a wonderful day shopping at Sephora! I'm glad to be so valued as a Rouge member! Not going back anytime soon!

I tried out the bare minerals matte foundation and just fell in love with it! It looked like there was no makeup on my skin and yet it covered up any imperfections I had. This has made me want to try out the starter kit they have to see if the addition of products such as the mineral veil and the concealer make that big of a difference but they don't have golden medium in their starter kit selections. Which one should I purchase? Thank you so much your help!
