Okay, Point Perks/Rewards.  Stuck between Burberry and Laura Mercier 100 points each. *Description of Burberry gives multi-usage options, which is great , but color is nude and my skin color is invisible. (okay, just whiter than white) Will this work for me or will it be too dark? - that's always an issue for this human Caspar. Hard to find foundation light enough for me. *Laura Mercier only says primer, but thinking this is colorless (good news) but solely a primer, unless you guys know otherwise.   What do you think? Hate to waste points. Thanks for any assistance. I wonder how many other people drive themselves crazy over things like this? Thanks again. 😊

I love the LXMI Crème du Nil Pore-Refining Moisture Veil but I travel a lot and every time this creme leaks out of the container.  Does anyone have a suggestion I can try to avoid the leaks?  I cannot imagine not using it but it is getting expensive to lose so much product all the time.  I wish they would redesign the packaging as it seems this may be an issue.  My original order leaked out and had to be replaced with the one I am using now.   BTW....this stuff is so good...particularly after a long flight or a late night.  I just love what it does for my skin.

I have several questions. I have had extremely oily skin and when it was fixed it then started to be extremely dry. I spent forever trying to find a foundation and primer that would work, nothing did. Randomly my skin started to be normal, not too dry or oily but makeup still doesn't completely sit right. It doesn't last long on my face, give it a couple hours and it will look like I have barely to none on. It also oxidizes really bad, I am in the lightest shade but it turns dark. I have looked up ways to fix this but nothing helps. I exfoliate, I moisturize, I prime, and I have even used a setting spray. Ive tried expensive makeup brands and even cheap brands, I have tried full coverage to medium coverage.  No matter what I do, nothing seems to stay on or stay close to my shade.

Hi,   I'm interested in the Amika Blowout Babe Thermal Brush.  My goal is to achieve soft curls with volume.  Would that work for this purpose?   Cheers!   http://www.sephora.com/blowout-babe-thermal-brush- P396012?skuId=1703560

I received a flyer in the mail saying that my VIB rouge coupon for $25 off $50 would be arriving Friday 12/2. I still haven't received it and I've checked all of my email accounts and spam folders. When will this arrive? I emailed customer service and received a reply asking for my VIB Rouge card number (which I don't have) and the email address on file. I provided the email address and I'm hoping to hear back soon.... Pretty annoying after spending so much $$ at Sephora!

I went to my local Sephora and they didn't have this foundation in the store but when they found my skin IQ it was a Y303, so I was wondering what shade I would be in this foundation? Thank you! xo

My skin is very dull and I'm not sure how to get my skin glowy. This isn't an issue when I wear makeup but I would like to not have to wear a full face of makeup everyday. I wash my face and moisturize everyday and deeply exfoliate 3-4 times a week. I drink plenty of water. What can I do? Thank you for your time.

Hi, everyone!   I received a sample a while ago of the Guerlain Lingerie De Peau foundation.  I just tried it for the first time a few days ago, and needless to say I am in LOVE.  However, I don't know what shade to buy.  This is a very expensive foundation so I do not just want to wing it.   I am going to go a couple shades darker than I am right now because I will be fake tanning soon for a vacation.  Normally when I am tan I wear shade light/medium neutral in Tarte or I've worn Medium Sand before.  I have neutral to warm undertones.  Please help!   Thank you!

I am in need of advice on good foundations! I have sensitive and combination skin that easily breakouts out from products, and have uneven skin tone.  I currently use Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation and do like that it doesn't cause breakouts.  However, I am looking for a foundation that still is good for my skin, but has a more flawless coverage and finish.  On days where I don't wear full makeup, recommendations for a good everyday BB or CC cream with some coverage would be good, too. Thank you!

I want medium coverage as I'm going to school and I don't want them to notice that I'm wearing foundation. My skin gets a bit oily as the day goes by so I want the product to have a matte finish or something like that. What's the best product for me?

Searching for a mascara that won't bleed onto my upper eyelids! Would prefer it not be waterproof. Have used great lash by Maybelline my entire life and now all of sudden it is bleeding onto my upper lids (they are not oily).  I have tried putting loose powder on my lashes and lids and it still happens.  I have also tried Almay and same thing!

What makeup do you suggest I use for mature skin with rosacea? My skin is quite dry! Also your best eyeliner suggestion as well please!
Hair
  I have wavy, curly hair.  The sides of my hair seem to hold curl much better than the back of my hair.  Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could get the back of my hair to stay curly?

I need new foundation. I'm currently using IT cosmetics CC cream in shade fair. While I do like that it covers redness and imperfections I do not like that it isn't oily-skin friendly. I don't have time to re-apply throughout the day and I use finishing powder & setting spray. More than that, what I strongly dislike about this product is how pasty white I look in daylight and especially in pictures. I know I'm pale and unless I go tanning (NOT happening) there's not much I can do about it but I also don't enjoy looking like a ghost. I've been reading reviews and watching first impression videos on Youtube and have it narrowed down to Too Faced Born this Way or Makeup Forever Mat Velvet. Any thoughts? Which is better or is there another product that is superior to either of these? Thanks!
