All Other Concerns
I'm 30 with medium-toned, combination/oily, acne-prone skin, sometimes even with hormonal cystic acne.  I have pitting and dark scarring from previous acne.  I use Tazorac (tretinoin) every other night via my dermatologist and take Spironolac. I just purchased a Clarisonic Mia 3 which is in the mail..   1) What is recommended to use with the Clarisonic?  I'm hoping it will replace my need for my muslin cloth-using REN Rosa Centifolia Purity Cleansing Balm which I use to help w/ the peeling from Tazorac    My usual AM: -REN Rosa Centifolia Purity Cleansing Balm -Kate Somerville Clarifying Treatment Toner -Murad Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel (all over face) -Skinceuticals CE Ferulic -Perricone MD Photo Plasma w/ spf 30 OR Murad Essential-C Day Moisture spf 30 -makeup   PM regime: -mild cleanser -Kate Somerville Clarifying Treatment Toner -Murad Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel -Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair -rotating between my Tazorac & Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster -Murad Essential-C Night Moisture   2)  Am I overlapping or using too many products?   3)  Does this order seem about right?

I wear Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation in Porcelain, but find it a bit too pink for me. Is there another shade that is the same in terms of paleness, yet more yellow or beige in undertone?   Thank you!

I haven't seen any thread mentioning the Vice Ltd. palette in stock on Ulta website... so just a heads up for you ladies that have been wanting one and unable to find it! For you platinum members the 20% off coupon code doesn't work on it

I am currently using bare minerals matte powder foundation in medium, along with tarte timeless smoothing primer and tarte bb tinted primer in light. I wanted to switch to the Tarte Amazonian clay full coverage powder foundation, but when I was color IQ'd at my local sephora the color she put on me was way too light. I went back yesterday and switched almost all the colors but can't decide between the light to medium shades as to which one I should use. I am also concerned about the amount of sparkle I saw in the tarte powder because I like a matte finish. Does anyone have any suggestions of a different powder foundation? I have oily, ance prone skin. I am not sure what my color IQ number was, but also a suggestion on the best match for the tarte powder would be appreciated also!  Thanks in advance!

I have very dark under eye circles. Is there a product to help me brighten them, and are there any really good concealers to cover them up? I've used NARS radiant creamy concealer, and makeup forever's full cover concealer and they can't quite cover them up.

I have combination skin, i don't have any problems with blemishes as of right now. My main concern is that i have very large pores, blackheads, and very dry skin. I've been using neutrogena daily cleanser with the neutrogena organic cleanser. Both day and night. My skin is slightly sensitive. My skins been looking very dull. Any suggestions?

I use smashbox 15 hr. foundation.  In summer I use 2.4 but in winter I mix 2.4 & 2.2 equal parts.  My question is would 2.3 be equal to my mix or would it be too red/orange I see it has a warm base.

I've been using Dr. Jart Premium BB cream for a couple of years but looking for a change.   Would this new BM product be a possible replacement? I don't need to wear moisturuzer with Dr. Jart and I am still looking for a BB cream that is one step. I do also like the coverage and moisture level of Dr. Jart. Any thoughts on how Complexion Rescue compares?  http://www.sephora.com/complexion-rescue-tinted-hy drating-gel-cream-P393356?skuId=1687920&shade_code ...

Hello all. I was wondering if someone could make a shade recommendation for me. I want to try Diorskin Forever Flawless foundation, but I'm not sure which shade to choose. I have worn Nars Sheer Glow in Mont Blanc and Mac Studio Fix in NW13. Anyone have any ideas? Thank you!

Has anyone tried it? It looks cool, and what the description says perfect but... I want to know what people think about it first, etc. Thanks!

Hi, I am looking for a new foundation to try. I have dry and very sensitive skin   I am currently using benefits hello flawless oxygen wow, and the colour is "I'm plush and precious, petal".   and I am thinking to get one of those foundations from YSL or Giorgio Armani.   I tried YSL's LE TEINT TOUCHE ÉCLAT Illuminating, shade 30  but I think it kinda dries out my skin but I liked the finish look.   Sephora that located near my area does not carry Giorgio Armani so that I could not try but I have heard so many people complimenting the product.   So I'd like to get some recommendation of those foundations or others that would work for me as well as the shade   Thanks.  
Lips
Hello! I received  YSL R OUGE PUR COUTURE Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain as a gift and I love it! I would like to order more colors but am unable to get to a store so I would like some recommendations. I have dark blond hair and hazel eyes and very warm coloring, so I look awful in anything blue-tinted. Can you give me some color recommendations that would work with my coloring? Thanks!

If you can't use a silicone based foundation with a water based primer or vise visa, why are they made with those both ingredients?

I'm 55, with nice skin and completion. I wear a CPAP machine at night and it takes much longer for skin to rebound from impressions from the mask. I'm looking for a foundation that smooths my skin, promotes elasticity. What cosmetic line do you recommend?
Acne
I have every problem under the sun. Anyone know of a miracle foundation that is good for...   HUGE pores Redness Sometimes dry, sometimes oily skin Wrinkles / Fine lines Always looks like makeup is cakey no matter what I do.   I need a miracle! Hehe   Thanks!        
Lips
Lip S.O.S: I have fair skin, I have blue/green eyes and blonde hair...and I have a very very thing upper lip. What is the best color/brand of lip gloss/stick/stain for me?
Combo / Normal
I have an EXTREMELY oily forehead and t-zone area, but very dry cheeks (probably due to acne products). I feel like my current moisturizer doesnt help with the dryness of my cheeks at all, so when i wear makeup it looks flaky and gross. However, I also don't want a moisturizer that will address the flakiness but will leave my oily parts looking super shiny and oily throughout the day. Any suggestion for a moisturizer that helps with both of these problems?!
Products
I was able to use a sample of Capture Totale Dreamskin by Dior and I love it! But i can't justify the price tag. Is there another primer that you recommend that evens out skintone and brightens the way the Dior one did for me? Thanks!

Why is it that the best products get discontinued? I hate Laura Gellar's "replacement" for her amazing Medium Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20. There must be something that works as amazing as the so very missed tinted moisturizer.

has this been discontinued? its out of stock in my color online and in store.

I have been looking for a good laydown eye shadow brush for a while. I recently purchased Bobbi Brown eye sweep brus h, but I'm not completely satisfied.. so I'm thinking of doing a purchase from Hakuhodo.    So please help me decide.   I was looking at K006, S121, and B127 I'm also ordering BJ004G.. (which is MAC 239 dupe). I have Wayne Goss #6 which is similar to J5523 so I need something that will cover a wide area with base color lightly. Any opinion will be more than greatly appreciated Thank you so much in advance!   May I also get opinion on J4003 and J110 for contour/bronzer brush? I'm also thinking about Wayne Goss 12 brush..  I've had MAC 168 before, but I hated how it splayed and lose shape to make my bronzers look really muddy..   
Hair
My oven just went up and flames and burnt all of my front hairs to a crisp. Thankfully, I'm fine, but my hair is not. The front hairs are basically all now an inch or less. Does anyone have any secret tips or products they know of to help hair grow back nourished and hopefully quick? I'm not looking to get romaine or anything like that but hopefully something extremely nourishing and moisturizing.    Any help/ advice will be greatly appreciated.   😰
