We're blabbing about everything else these days, I figured I'd check in and see what people are watching when it comes to TV shows and movies!   It would be foolish to think that this thread could remain spoiler free, so let's be courteous to one another and be sure to spoiler your spoilers. If you don't know how, it's that super adorable little yellow button on the toolbar, located to the right of the bold/italic/underline/strikeout buttons.    DONT FORGET: If you happen to be the most recent post, your first sentence or two of your post will show up EVEN IF ITS IN A SPOILER. So please take care if you're going to go dropping spoiler bombs.    Anywho... I just saw the movie PHOENIX last night and it was absolutely spectacular. Like Academy Award spectacular. If you're fortunate enough have showings in your area, I cannot urge you enough to go see it.    So whatcha'll watchin' these days? What are you anxiously waiting for to start back up?

Hi there   I just purchased the Sephora  Bright Futures Color Corrector in yellow to help with redness in my cheeks and chin. I need help with the order of operations. Moisturizer + primer + corrector + foundation?
Eyes
Which eyeshadow palette is better, MAC cool neutral or Urban Decay Smokey Eye Palette?
All Other Concerns
Hello lovelies!   I got burnt after my brazilian wax a couple months ago and the scar is still there. The burn is right next to my bikini line (very visible when I'm wearing a bikini) and it makes me feel very uncomfortable. The skin is very wrinkly and extremely dark. It was very itchy at the beginning and I didn't know it was a burn so I just applied some soothing cream and kept it moisturized.  I went to a new place yesterday and the waxing lady told me I could get a chemical peel on the whole bikini area to help with the scaring and the hyper-pigmentation but it sounds a little scary. My skin is very sensitive and prone to ingrown and the skin on my inner thighs is a little darker compared to the rest of my body so I'm a little self conscious about that.    I also thought about using peels like DDG or OH Lemon Peel on the skin around the bikini line to help with the scar but I don't know if it's a good idea.    Please let me know your thoughts/ experiences if you ever had to deal with hyper-pigmentation or any type of scars in the bikini area. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Dry
My eight year-old son with special needs has VERY dry hands, due in part I'm sure to all of the hand-washing in school. I doubt that any of the products on the market are toxic, but can anyone recommend a really good hand cream that's safe for kids, in case it should get into his mouth? I'm currently using Aquaphor Baby on his hands at bedtime (which is almost like using Vaseline) but it doesn't really seem to be doing much. As you can sort of see in the photo (this is the best image I can find of his hands at the moment), the skin isn't cracking, but it's rough and dry, especially on the backs of his fingers and on his palms. He's non-verbal so he doesn't complain, but I know it must be a bother.   Thanks for any advice or suggestions!  
Face
I am interested in this foundation but not sure about the colors online. I ama MAC NW 20. Right now I'm using Nars sheer glow Santa Fe but it's either a little too dark or its oxidizing on me.  I was color matched at a Sephora store for that one. I'm cool toned with redness and hyperpigmention that I need to cover on my cheeks.  The 1.1 looks a little light. The 2.1 looks too dark. (Darker than sante fe) and the one in the middle I think is too warm for me.  Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks Laura

Natural & Organic
Have you guys tried any of these products? I'm wonderstruck by their claims of using pure products free of animal products. I'm especially interested in Blue Tansy and Orchid oil (possibly to replace my SR Flora). Any thoughts?
Dry
What foundation would you guys recommend for someone with super dry skin? Right now my face is just really dry, especially on my forehead for some reason! It's so flaky and I hate it! I need a foundation that isn't going to stick to the flakes and look like a cakey mess! I also want a foundation with pretty good coverage because I have redness. I recently bought the UD Naked Foundation and I don't even know how it would have worked because it was so watery/runny. I couldn't even get any use of the product because of how runny it was, even after shaking up the bottle. So please don't recommend a foundation that is gonna run down my hand when I pump it. Are all water based foundations going to be runny? I'm not sure if the UD is water based, but I heard water based is good for dry skin, but I'm just worried it will be runny and too watery. The UD one was so watery the Beautyblender just drank it up :-( I really wanted to try to KatVonD Lock It Foundation, but reading through the FAQs on it people said it's not for people with dry skin :-( I also don't want to spend more than $50 dollars on a foundation either. Sorry I know I sound super picky I am just in search of a holy grail foundation. So anyway overall I just need a foundation with full coverage or close to full coverage that is hydrating and wont stick to flaky skin. Thanks so much in advance to everyone who replies to this :-)

Dry
Hey BTgals,   I just got reminded this morning how much my skin loves oils. I had been skipping on them for the past 2 weeks since I'd been suffering from pesky breakouts + been traveling, so didn't really have any with me. Last night, made a dash to the drugstore to get some oil (since there's no Sephora close by), and ended up getting a Loreal facial oil, and slathered that on my face last night! Oh my! My skin looks positively happy and glowing today   With the VIB sale round the corner, wanted to hear what your fave face oils were. I haven't tried tons, but mine would be:   - Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex - Caudalie Premier Cru (although I could do with a less heavy rose scent)   Do share your faves!!
Eyes
I have tried several different primers, eyeliners, mascaras, and shadows. My eye makeup runs and pools at the corners and under my eyes, giving me raccoon eyes. Help! What products do you suggest to solve this issue?
Acne
I'm really interested in this long wearing foundation because I work long hours as a nurse and wear a mask in the operating room so that adds a challenge to wearing foundation 😀 I am a NW 20 and in Nars sheer glow which I'm wearing now I'm Santa Fe. But, I think it's a little dark, or its oxidizing in me. I am cool toned skin , but i also like wearing neutral toned foundation to toned down the redness on my cheeks.  The concerns i have  about the foundation is 1.1 looks very light but 2.1 looks too dark. The one in between looks too warm.  Many help would be appreciated.  Laura

Nails
I'm loving this nail polish from Nails Inc. I used the superfood base coat, Nailkale in Victoria and finished it off with the 45 second top coat.  The color is so rich and easy to apply.   
Face
I have combination skin that gets oily in the t-zone but when ever I have a blemish it gets super dry and creates flaky patches and I also get very dry on the outside of my face, around my nose and under my eyes. I also have large pores on my nose that I usually try to cover up and make sure make up doesn't get in there but it always does. I work in a office and rarely go outside but everyday my makeup comes off on my phone or smudges if I barely press on an itch. I finally found a make up that matches my skin tone (I'm a red-head with pale freckly skin) in the Make Up Forever Ultra HD Foundation (110=R220) and I love the coverage and the finish once I set it but even after setting it still rubs off during the day very easily. My make up looks good when I leave for work in the morning but when I get home that night it's patchy and has melted.    I've tried a lot of different make up primers and none of them really seemed to extend the wear of my make up. I've tried  -MUFE Step 1 Primer in Green (didn't really help color correct or keep my make up on longer) -MUFE Step 1 Primer in Smoothing (helped cover my pores on my nose and create a barrier but didn't extend the life of my make up)- -Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer (made my face an oil slick) -Too Faced Hangover Primer (I LOVED how this made my face feel but it didn't help extend my makeup) -Benefit Porefessional (again helped with the pores but make up still melted off)   I've even tried the Urban Decay Oil Slick makeup spray which made my face really tight and uncomfortable and the Urban Decay All Nighter which I don't think made much of a difference. I use the RCMA no color powder to set my make up (which I really like because it doesn't make any dry patches look worse and it's not as thick feeling as MUFE HD Powder and doesn't have sparkles like the Laura Mercier).    If anyone could give me some advice to help all the work I put into making my makeup look good last until I get home I would really appreciate it.   
Face
I have been looking in on reviews on the Kat Von D foundation and I really want to try it but im afraid it is going to make me break out easily. Which foundation if not this one would be full coverage but not make me break out easily cause i have very acne prone skin
Dry
Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet. This is an amazing product. I'm very red and I've started to lean towards dry as I have gotten older.    Using this product under Diorskin Nude BB Cream has made me look 5-10 years younger! The BB cream seems to cover so much more evenly now, and I seem to have a little bit of a "glow" because I'm using the sorbet.   I think the Caudalie has made the BB cream much more effective and has contributed highly to that beautiful skin factor we all want. I've gotten great results, even without color correction the past few days. This is a keeper I'm not sure will go away. 
Oily
My skin is a combination of oily and normal. My t-zone is oily and my cheeks are completely fine. However, when I put on foundation my forehead kepis very flaky. I exfoliate once a week and I put gel moisturizer on my face after.  How do I fix this?
Oily
What is the best foundation for oily skin. I have tried Kat Von D but it changed to an orange color once applied.. 
Eyes
Hey everyone! I stopped by Ulta today and fell in love with the UD Alice Through the Looking Glass palette and I was wondering if Sephora would be carrying it? Or if it's an Ulta exclusive?
Face
I am wanting to get a different foundation because mine is a little too light for my skin in some lightings, but I'm having trouble trying to find my color online.  I know that when you're in store you can swatch some on your neck to see, but what about online?   
Acne
I typically wear a single shadow all over the lid and have only recently been experimenting with actually using a darker color in the crease. However, most of the matte brown shades i've tried in the crease tend to look too dark / harsh for me. So I'm looking for suggestions for a crease shade that is slightly darker than my skin tone and will go well with a simple champagne / taupe everyday shadow.   I have fair skin with yellow undertone (ex. I wear the shade Gobi in the Nars sheer glow foundation). My go to everyday shadow colors are  Stila Wheat, Urban Decay Sin, Mac Naked lunch and Burberry Pale Barley.   I'm open to any brands, but I tend to like Stila, Urban Decay and Mac. I would particularly like a Mac suggestion since I'm placing an order withe them anyway (I was considering Soft Brown but I really think it's too dark for me - I was instead looking at Kid or Omega as possibilities).
Oily
I'm currently using the First Aid Beauty Mattifying Oil Free Moisturizing Gel and it's doing nothing for me. Can't wait until the tube is empty. I'm considering splurging on the Drunk Elephant B Hydra Intensive Hydration Gel but wanted some opinions on it since it's so pricey. I use the CeraVae PM moisturizer at night and would prefer not to use the AM in the morning before my makeup.
Face
I have been wearing my color IQ matched liquid foundation for months with no problems, and suddenly in the last 3 days a few hours after getting to work I notice my face is orange. Not oompa loompa orange, but the foundation has an orange tint to it. It doesn't look like this when I put it on. I don't have anything new in my routine, so I applied my foundation with a brush instead of the beauty blender, and was still orange. Today I applied with my fingers, and left off my blush just to make sure that wasn't what was turning me orange. I'm still orange. I have pretty dry skin. Could it be that my foundation is old? Help?! What do I do?

I'm going to post a picture of me without makeup. Because hey, I love makeup, but I'm also working on embracing my face au naturel, too.   None of this "I'm not wearing makeup" when you're wearing a tinted moisturizer, brown mascara, and have a slight flush to your cheeks and lips. I'm talking no makeup AT ALL (No, not even clear lip balm).   This is me, about 10 minutes out of the shower.   Anyone else brave enough?    
Face
I am looking for a good primer that will keep my foundation looking fresh for a long time. I have a very oily nose and my skin is very blackhead prone, both on my nose and around it.

Hi! I'm contemplating some MUFE Artist eyeshadows but I'm curious what the general opinion is. Are they worth the cost? How do they compare to Morphe or Anastasia or Maleup Geek's individual shadows?
