Natural & Organic
Hi guys! My mom loves natural/organic products wether it be face cleanser, face cream. She doesn't wear makeup. Do you guys have any recommendations??  While searching online she found three products that she wanted me to get her for her birthday. I'll only get one right now though. Her picks are: 1. Ole Henriksen African red tea foaming cleanser 2. Ole Henriksen truth serum vitamin C collagen booster  3. Orgins A perfect world    Which one is the best to get her? Also if you have any suggestions lemme know!  Thanks!!

Lips
I just spotted this on Temptalia....      They are 10 for $12 or 30 for $22...    I just... why? Why would you spend over (or almost) a dollar for a lip wipe? Am I missing something here? Are we too good for a spitty tissue to wipe off mistakes or stain?
Makeup
I recently bought the HOURGLASS Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil, because of the great reviews. I was going through a Brow Wiz way too quickly. When I found out the Hourglass pencil is 0.014oz, for $32 ($37CAD), compared to 0.003oz $21($27) for the Brow Wiz, I was sold. If you compare the 2, the brow wiz is so much more expensive! You would pay $98 ($126 CAD) for the same amount of product! I even compared it with drugstore products and it's still a better value.   So, my question is, do you have any other go-to products that you think have such a great value?

Makeup
Has anyone seen the Tom Ford 2014 fall collection? I saw it on Temptalia. I love neutrals so I'm def eyeing the palette. It says available August but I'm not sure exact dates.   
Oily
I have oily skin and I've used so many products for my face such as the garnier bb cream, benefit oxygen wow foundation, laura mercier tinted moustrizer, mac mineral moisture and maybelline dream mousse. So far, I liked the tinted moisturizer the best, but I want to try something new. I've never tried a powder, but I've heard the tarte loose powder is good. Is anyone willing to give me other examples, preferably a foundation, tinted moisturzer, bb or cc cream that is oil free, very natural and not too expensive?

OK, so I bit the bullet (no pun intended) and made an appointment at my dentist to get my teeth professionally whitened. Anyone have any words of wisdom on preparation, longevity, whitening I can expect, etc? I've questioned my dentist bunches of times (this is not something I just jumped into), but I'd really like some feedback from people who've had it done. I'm looking forward to this, but I'm a little anxious, too!

Recently I purchased a pallet make up, No makeup makeup from Toofaced. However, I noticed on the back , there is a 2012 year mentioned. I wonder is there any chance to know the manufacture date ? I am afraid that my pallet is gonna expire soon. The code is BM2. I rarely do the makeup, so it will stay with me quite long period.   Thanks,   Yen

Lips
I tried to achieve a matte lips look with loose powder (LM translucent powder) over a tissu (and half a tissu) and when I removed tissu, the result is matte but all color seem to stay on the tissu instead of my lips. So, I'd like to get some trick to get this look without buying (again) other lipsticks. Thanks!!!
Hair
I have fine just past my shoulders straight hair and am looking for a mousse to volumize. I'm torn between Alterna and bumble and bumble thickening mousse. Which will work best for my hair type?

Lips
I have a few samples/palettes that require lip brushes for application. I bought the Sephora Collection Pro Lip Brush #81 (shown below), but I'm not a fan of it. Perhaps I don't know how to use it. Either way, I'm not getting the results I want. Anyone have a suggestion on a lip brush for dummies? It doesn't have to be from Sephora. I'd also be okay with someone telling me exactly how to use a lip brush.
All Other Concerns
I don't know what to do with my skin.   I'm currently using: - PERRICONE Hypoallergenic Gentle Cleanser - Eucerin Soothing Repair Creme on my eczema  - ORIGINS Charcoal Mask once or twice a month - ORIGINS Zero Oil™ Lotion on oily areas   I need some help. I'm sick of this. I can't wear makeup because it either flakes (dry areas) or just clumps or melts off (oily areas). I've never found a foundation that has covered the redness either.   What can I do? Anyone else have this or a similar issue? (PS. I can NOT use any Milk Cleansers or anything like that containing milk.)
Lips
What is the best neutral and pink lipstick for olive skin tone? I have tried NARS Honolulu Honey and it was very shimmery and not flattering. A lipstick that has no shimmer to it please!

Acne
I know that Sephora doesn't sell Illamasqua anymore, Nordstrom never has, and now I see that it is no longer on Bloomingdales website. Does anyone know where Illamasqua can be found in the States? I am definitely not paying international shipping from the UK.

Hello! So pretty recently my foundation has been acting up. Whenever I apply foundation I ALWAYS get this cakey, dry skin look. I do have dry skin but I always exfoliate and moisturize before I apply my foundation. That being said I also have acne. And normally that's where I find it cakes the most but I don't have acne all over my face, even where I have smooth skin I see that it's cakey.  The cakey makeup won't go away. It's also seems like you can see the peach fuzz on my face, it's so weird.   I use my Laura Mercier foundation with my Cover FX liquid foundation brush. I put on my NYX Pour Filler primer and put on my foundation. I truly put on a thin layer, a thin enough layer that I still see the redness from my acne (which I dislike but I'd rather have my acne showing than a full of cakey makeup.) After putting on my foundation I would normally set my face with a matte powder (which makes the cakey makeup look even more worse.) Add bronzer and blush (height of the cake.) I have no clue what to do anymore. I've tried different foundations, all the way to pricey top of the line ones, to drugstore ones. I've tried different ways of putting the foundation on, my fingers, a sponge, a brush. I've tried BB cream. Nothing is working. Can anyone please save me from this makeup nightmare? Thanks in advance!

Trying to decide on two shadows for a make up forever palatte. Like the look of the khaki matte as the dark shadow but can't decide on a paler base shadow to compliment it. Something peachy and not glittery would be ideal. Any suggestions?

Hi beauties, I'm thinking of giving foundation primer a try. Currently I am using Perricone No Foundation Foundation Serum and I adore how it looks and feels - it just doesn't seem to stay on all day, thus bringing me to my two questions:  will a primer help the foundation stay on longer and will using a primer interfere with the anti aging and skin benefits of the foundation serum?     Oh and I was thinking of beginning my primer experience with Laura Mercier because I have a deluxe sample size. Thoughts?

Hello! I'm looking to redo my regimen to use gentler products. I have acne prone skin with a significant amount of discoloration from my hormonal breakouts. I've been using Kate Somerville for years but it doesn't seem to be working for me anymore, so I want to switch to another line that is gentler. I am looking for a cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and sunscreen

Okay I KNOW this is months early BUT I want to start making my wish list early this year for all the stores that usually have good deals around the holidays. I know Sephora does the VIB 20% off... But that is all that's coming to my mind right now... Does anyone know or remember where all had good beauty deals last year that will/maybe have deals this year?

I have very oily acne prone skin and I have been breaking out pretty bad recently on my cheeks, chin, and along my jawline. I'm not sure if it's just 1 product that's breaking me out or my whole routine.  I'm currently using in the morning: first aid beauty facial cleanser, clean&clear essentials deep cleaning toner for sensitive skin, and the murad oil control mattifier. In the evening: same cleanser and toner, loreal revitalift serum, josie maran argan oil light, and twice a week I use the dr. jart pore medic @ home peel, and benzoyl peroxide as a spot treatment when needed The breakouts are pretty large and not just 1 or 2 at a time but several, I haven't had a breakout like this in a long time...so frustrating! Anyway are there other products I should try instead? I want to use gentle products and products that won't cause my oily skin to overreact. I would also like to incorporate as much drugstore products as possible! Thank you all!
Face Q&A
I want a foundation or bb cream that has a very sheer coverage, and natural look, but on the other side I have oily skin ? Anything good
Acne
Dear All,   Since I turned 40 I have been hyper sensitive about my uneven and oftentimes dull skin tone. As I have 6 children (who all bring their friends inside) + an 18 year old au pair (with perfect youthful skin), I can no longer bear to reveal my bare facial skin in the house.   I have tried several Loreal options, but none seem to have the coverage/glow giving properties I desire (they do however work miracles for my teenage daughters). I've also tried Clinique's CC cream, but my under eyes still look dark, which is incredibly ageing; similar story with Estee Lauder's CC Cream.   I love Estee Lauders Double Wear All Day Glow BB Cream for going out in the warmer months, but would ideally like something better priced for the house ...   Any ideas? Do any of you wear a base in the house?

I love the YSL Touche Eclat foundation but I can't find the right color. I've tried Beige 10 (its to light) and Beige Dore 10 (slightly to dark that its noticeable even when well blended). Any suggestions? My best match is the Estee Lauder Double Wear Light in 1.0. A lot of paler are people are wearing B30? Is it lighter than the ones I mentioned?
