Does anyone have swatchs of the original Urban Decay primer potion Sin vs. the new Minor Sin?  Or has anybody used both and have an opinion on the differences?

Sophie Uliano was recently featured on television, where she shared several tips and advice about makeup and nutrition.  She wrote a book entitled: Gorgeous for Good .  Since it's so new, my library didn't have it--but I requested for them to purchase it, and they did!  I'm currently reading it, and all I can say is WOW!  This book is quite simply fabulous!  Topics in Sophie's book include: makeup (application and good vs. bad ingredients), skincare, healthy recipes, and simple exercises for every day.  I personally like her simple, flexible, and real approach to beauty and am truly inspired by all the information she shares with us.  It's not often I come across a book like this, so I just thought I would let you all know about this treasure.  It would be a wonderful addition to your collection of books (a fantastic resource), and it would make an awesome Mother's Day gift.

Does anyone ever tried this sunscreen? Is it worth the price?

I have combination skin and NUDE Purify works awesome as a moisturizer.  However, I really just can't afford it.  Any suggestions?   I have tried Seaberry Oil from Fresh, I think it is way too oily...

seriously Sephora why is it that every time there's a special sale , or launch you guys have some mysterious "Glitch" that's always in the USA customers favour ?? Isn't our cash good enough for you ? I think this is now the  push I need to start spending my hard earned cash at Murale , Shoppers Drug Mart and heck maybe even  go back to MAC . Because at least I don't get treated like a second class customer with them .

My color IQ is 3Y08 and it doesn't show MUFE HD. I've tried #127 and it's too light for me. Any recommendations? 
Combo / Normal Skin
I am in love with Caudalie's new Instant Detox Mask and I am really interested in trying their new Moisturizing Mask!   So far, the moisturizing mask only has 1 review. I'm wondering if any of you have tried it yet and what your thoughts are?   I, personally, am worried about it causing breakouts. I would like to use this mask when I'm feeling particularly dry like after a day in the sun or when a heavy dose of makeup has sucked the life out of my face. During the winter, I would layer Nature Republic's "Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream" over my moisturizer and never had any issues. Now that it's summer I apply it to a bare face and get loads of cool hydration.   About me: I have normal to combination skin. I'm prone to breakouts when it comes to moisturizers but I don't have any issues with Cerave PM moisturizer or the aforementioned Nature Republic. So far, my skin has been great the last three months

Hello, I'm 34 with fairly normal skin. It used to be oily but has changed in past few years to normal (and VERY slightly sensitive, though not enough to really be a concern.) What I'm looking for is something to address my under-eye wrinkles which have developed in the past year. I've had forehead wrinkles for quite some time but recently saw lines looking like crows feet and some wrinkling that goes from under eye are to top of cheeks. It's kind of hard to explain, sorry! I also have a lot of dark spots from sun damage. I do not have issues with puffy eyes or dark circles. I have used retinols and glycolic acids on & off infrequently over the past 10 years, as well as light moisturizers. What I've used so far in the past 2 years to address my current issues have not worked well: Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu brightening mask (great hydration but did nothing for my dark spots and wrinkles) Philosophy renewed hope in a jar: did not minimize wrinkles at all, Ole Henriksen 3 little wonders: making my under eye area VERY dry and seeming to deepen the wrinkles there. Long story short, I need something to hydrate my under-eye area and give me anti-aging benefits, and would love a multi-tasking product for my dark spots as well. Any suggestions are welcome and thank you so much for reading my long post!

Does anyone know whether of not Sephora will be getting the new Stila liquid lipstick shades they added for 2015.I know Sephora has the new blushes, but there are 2 lippie shades I'd like to add to my collection.

So I have tried so many different foundation over the past 2 weeks in hopes of finding my new Holy Grail one.  I guess MUFE HD in 120 is my best match.  Most people have a lighter face and darker neck/body, but due to my hyper pigmentation my face is darker, so the 120 evens everything out.  I have been on an acne treatment which has dried my face out, so the HD is clinging to my dry patches regardless of what moisturizer, serum, primer I use.  So then comes LM Moisturizing foundation in Bamboo Beige (which is nearly a perfect match to 120) i like the feel (or lack there of) my problem is, is that it says medium to full coverage and I am only getting the results of a tinted moisturizer.  I use my beauty blender, which was suggested and the new primer that was suggested was MUFE equalizer 4.( i think it's the hydrating one) I have tried building, and am not getting any better results.  I refuse to return this one, even though I feel like for $48 it's expensive and i don't think you get much product. So I would like to make this work, just need a suggestion for better coverage.  I have been setting it lightly with the LM translucent loose powder. Thanks everyone

Fragrance
Hi, Scent Lovers!  My Mom loves No. 4711.  What scents, if any, are similar to 4711?  I'm not looking for a dupe, but I would like to stay in the same scent family.   This is how the fragrance is described:   The precious ingredients are carefully harmonised. Bergamot, lemon, and orange provide a uniquely revitalising effect. Lavender and rosemary have a calming and relaxing effect, strengthening the nerves. Neroli, extracted from the blossom of the bitter orange, has a calming effect in the base note, creating a positive mood.

I went into my local store just to browse the Surratt line. While I was there I decided to look at the Becca Complexion Creme. I already knew which color to select (Olive) when an associate came over and asked if I'd like to be color matched. I agreed.   Boy, oh boy she said I had have red undertone. RED?! I didn't say anything, but when she said my match in Becca would be "mink", I did what "Miranda" did in Devil Wears Prada , and pursed my lips.   Why such a big dispariety ? I am "Olive" in the particular formula. Lesson learned "don't always trust the color IQ", 
Products
Anyone else remember the Sephora Collection bath & body products in Tropical Jasmine?? It is the most amazing scent. I stocked up on the Dry Oil Spray (my fav) when I knew it was being discontinued. Now I only have half a bottle left which I hoard and use only on special occasions. So Sephora, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring back the tropical jasmine scent. I would do anything for any product in that scent!

I want to purchase some new eyeshadow and eyeliner. I have blond hair, blue eyes, fair skin with pink undertones and rosacea. Hooded eyelids/aging eyes. At 45 I am showing signs of aging and not sure what colors I should be wearing to flatter my skin tone, enhance my blue eyes and are good for my aging eyes. Often times my eyes look tired.  I have no idea what colors to wear.   I do have trouble with my shadows creasing and liners running. I do not like to wear waterproof products due to my delicate lashes.  Any suggestions?

I just received my order of Sunday Riley's "Start Over" eye treatment. I've used the product before and my last bottle reads "Active Eye Cream" but this new one reads "Active Eye Gel Cream."  Does anyone know if this is the same product? Have they changed the formula? The packaging is different from my old one (bought in January) so I was wondering if it is the same.  Thanks!

I was wondering if they are going to be released together or when? I seem to recall reading that the blush/lip pots were a summer item and the cream shadows a fall item but not certain. Anyone have any further information? Thanks!

How do i pick the right concealer for my skin tone when they dont have the same shade as my foundation, I wear makeup forever in marble but they dont have that shade in concealer, they have a darker one with the same undertone (which i know going darker is a makeup nono) but the lighter ones all have pink undertones. Is it bad to go for a pink undertone in a concealer?

Hi, I am currently using ELDW in 2C1 and would like to change to the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation. What would be a good color match. I was using ELDW in 2N1 but it is a little yellow for my skin. Thank-You so much for your assistance!

So while browsing  here in BT I have noticed a lot of us having issues and horror stories about finding the correct foundation match, have love hate relationships with certain brands/colors. I remember going through so many sample/purchases of hoping this will be something I like or will be my HG foundation, but would wind up in disappointment . The frustrations of trying to find not only the right shade, but also the tone/coverage and ingredients that make us feel comfortable and look good on the skin.   Ohh how many counters I visited and tried so many brands in order to find the one. I mean it is sometimes so exhausting - because sometimes MUA's not listening your preferences (ex: I am on a warmer side and with slightly yellowish undertone and I am given a sample of cool/pink /neutral foundation) or also the lighting the stores sometimes is no help.   Other times when we ask for samples so we can try it at home and in natural lighting to see if it is the perfect color match and coverage MUA's/SA's give us a tiny sample - which barely covers our whole face/enough for one try and other times they are very generous about it or the look we get "oh she is just wants a sample and not buying anything!!!"   On top of that we always have to worry about the seasons changing and us trying to find a shade lighter or darker.   So let's share the stories and your ways of finding the right shade/tone of the foundation.
