I have been looking at Clarins UV Plus HP Day Screen for a while and even got a sample of it (the one with the tint) after it was used during my makeover. During my makeover, the Clarins with the tint was mixed with Peter Thomas Roth's CC Cream. I have never used a daily sunscreen before and I am very new to skincare. Just so you know, I have been doing a daily skincare routine each morning and night and use in this order: Nude Perfect Cleansing Oil (rinse), Peter Thomas Roth FIRMx Peeling Gel Exfoliant (2-3 times per week) (rinse), Nude ProGenius Treatment Oil, followed by Nude Radiant Day Moisturizer. I was wondering about two things: -What are either the pros and cons of the one that has the tint and the one without or which one do you use and recommend? -When do you apply it? Is it before or after I moisturize? If I choose to wear cc cream or a tinted moisturizer, should I mix it with the product, or do I put it on beforehand? Thank you in advance! ^-^
Summer is on it's way and I am looking for something to wear after I moisturize my skin that has an SPF. I believe I have normal dry skin. I have tried Laura Mercier's and NARS tinted moisturizer and I liked the NARS one a lot better, but I'm still unsure. When I used both of these products, after some time my skin dried around and above the apples of my cheeks, my nose, and in between my brows. In addition, when I had my makeover at Sephora, they combined Peter Thomas Roth's cc cream with Clarin's uv plus high protection with tint. After these were used I didn't really notice any dry patches. Does the application make a difference? I applied the tinted moisturizers with my hands, but during my makeover, a wet sponge was used... I should also mention that I am rather new to the world of makeup and I could be applying them incorrectly which is why I might get dry spots from time to time, but I have been doing a skincare routine every morning and night and make sure to moisturize before I apply any makeup. I just wanted to ask what any of you would recommend. NARS tinted moisturizer or the Peter Thomas Roth cc cream. Also, does the way that it is applied affect how it will look? Thank you in advance for answering my questions! ^-^
For me, it'd have to be would have to be eyeliners that require sharpening, especially when the eyeliner itself is sort of soft and creamy. I can never get it back into a nice tip, and it always end up very blunt. I hate, hate, hate sharpening eyeliners, they always clog the sharpener and, let's be honest, so much makeup is wasted that way. Retractable crayon eyeliners are usually what I use, but I hate when there's a color or brand of eyeliner that I want to use, but requires sharpening. The same thing goes for lipsticks or basically any creamy pencil. Ah-noy-ing!
I have KP on the tops of my thighs. I think they're pretty bad too. So i finally made up my mind to get the Dermadoctor KP Duty Moisture Therapy. But for a 4 oz. bottle, it costs $30 something dollars! So i was thinking of getting the 1 oz. bottle because it's only $9 and i can try it out. But after reading the reviews (I just have to read the reviews before I buy!), people said to use it everyday for over 2 weeks. I doubt 1 oz. will be enough. Is it worth getting though? Are there any similar products that can reduce my KP for less $ here at Sephora? I'm pretty desperate for something that would work because the weather's getting warmer and I don't want people to stare at my KP on my thighs like my class does during gym :/ THANK YOU! <3
Saw this picture on Instagram, omg I'm so excited I could die. I wonder if this is what the palette actually looks likes. But no worries cause I plan on collecting all the Disney Princess palettes anyway!
In desperate need of an awesome primer & setting spray that will make my makeup last all day and for me to look flawless. Also in need of skin care advice. I have been breaking out lately and I use sea breeze toner face scrub and lotion. What do yall recommend for my acne breakout? Willing to tey new skin care products!!
I'm looking for help on how to get rid of the peeling skin I have on my face. I have VERY oily skin, but for some reason the skin on my nose and chin is perpetually peeling! Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
I went into the sephora store today and I was looking for a good brand for nightly facial regime (already have a cleanser, just a moisturizer or night cream and a serum or eye cream that work nicely together) hopefully something brightening but doesn't have to be, i have mostly normal skin, with a dime sized dry patch by my chin. Also im in my teens and am already developing slight lines and anti aging would be great ( or preventative) and also a moisturizer with spf that can go under my bare minerals without making the color different (primer does this to me) Any response helps! thanks!!
I have oily skin, although my current skincare regime is doing well to keep that under control. My pores aren't all that noticeable until I apply foundation. I have tried several primers (Hourglass Mineral Veil, Benefit Porefessional, Smashbox Dark spot correcting, tarte poreless, tarte brightening) but my fine lines and pores seem to become more noticeable when I apply foundation particularly on my cheeks and around my eyes. I use a flat top brush and buff the foundation forward and in reverse as suggested by a gossmakeupartist video posted by another contributor. I don't wear makeup on a regular basis for that reason, but the 2 most recent foundations I've tried are Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24HR (love that it's transfer-free) and Hourglass Immaculate Liquid to Powder (really like the finish). Maybe I'm just too picky, any suggestions?
I have combo/oily skin and I need a new foundation. Everything I try seems to just sit on top of my face and just melts off mid day. I swear a lot and that doesn't help my case. I need something with staying power that doesn't make me outlier than I already am and something that won't irritate my skin. However I don't want some cakey makeup look either. I want to try to look as natural and flawless as possible and not like I have a pound of makeup on my face. Any suggestions?!?!?!?!?
What's better, a gel liner or a cream liner? Not sure what the difference is since I'm torn between buying Bobbi browns gel pot or Loracs cream liner pot.....need something that will last all day since I have oily lids!
When I got into makeup about a year ago I felt like Sephora was like Toys R Us for people who loveee makeup. You can sample products in the stores and theres always soooo many options for what you're looking for. However now that Im starting to get my staple makeup products down I find that there are some things I will or already have repurchased because they work sooo well for me. My repurchased items are... -Naked Basics Palette: I lovee the neutral looks I can make with this palette while also having the option to make it a bit bolder if I wanted to. -Bobbi Brown Corrector and Concealer: I love the consistency of these products creamy and go on soo smooth. -Smashbox Lipstick in Primrose: its my lips but better lipstick and sooo moisturizing

Hi ladies! I was browsing in my local Sephora after work today and saw that Anastasia has a bright blue mascara and also a purple one! It looked like so much fun especially with summer coming around the bend. Just wondering if anyone is planning to sport a colored mascara this summer? Dannyc, weren't you looking for a Chanel one a few weeks ago? Did you ever find "the one"? I would love something blue/greenish with a sparkly finish!
Has anyone given this a try or thought about getting this? I heard many reviews about this, especially Dim. I want to get BT opinions on this one before I go into Sephora. I know I won't be walking out with just one item.
I'm getting my nails done for a wedding this weekend. A month ago I had long, beautiful, natural nails that I cut off because they were starting to split at the ends, in the hopes they would grow back the same way, but alas, now they are just splitting and looking ugh. I am definitely getting acrylics at a salon, so don't bother talking me out of that if you intend to. I've only ever had them done once before, so I don't know what to ask for or what style is "in" right now. I need to know the language to ask for the right thing! Help please! Thanks
Okay, this is kinda random but I was just wondering. Like what do others do when they have heard bad news, or having a bad day, or just are sad at the moment? Do you go somewhere? Go for a drive? Want to be alone? Retail therapy? For me, I gotta say it's defiantly retail therapy. It brings my mood up for a while. And sweets... nothing better than stuffing myself with candy or cookies. Haha.
I've been watching the news lately and am so saddened by what has happened in Oklahoma. It made me think about "what if I lost everything" (material wise)? One aspect of what i would miss would be my makeup collection. I know it seems super superficial but I would miss it. Is there any way that Sephora could send items to the residents of Newcastle & Moore, Oklahoma who were devastated by the tornado? Shampoo, conditioner, soap, body stuff, makeup? I know it is the least of people's concerns right now and maybe it would be better to do at a later date? I just read a post about people who have a ton of extra Bath & Body Works items (and I know I have a ton of untouched items too)... I wonder if there is someway we could send items to these people? I know that the BT community isnt a place to share super weighty topics but this has been on my heart today.
Hi Ladies, I don't know if anyone else has noticed but I have watched this post grow into an incredible 1121 replies. I think it's an awesome thing to have a post going this long and just to let Sephoramusthave know what a great post she started.
Hi y'all! I'm new too the whole makeup thing & I want to wear some type of either super light shade of pink, or even a deep red, but I was wondering what lipsticks are long lasting and look shiny/glossy. If you could post a picture that would be awesome. I would love any colour lipstick, so if you have any favorite colours feel free to share them
Hey girls, I'm in the market for a shock factor purple lipstick. My skin tone is medium-light with neutral/slightly olive undertones. I like the lok of the violet color from the YSL Arty Stone promo pics for Spring 2013. Also just stumbled upon the Bite Beauty lip pencil in Violet... has anyone tried either of these colors? Anyone have a suggestion for a different purple? I'm willing to try anything but no frosted lilac-y colors. Thanks!
I want to thank Candace and the BT mods and Sephora for giving out a free eyeshadow for those who participated in the swatch to get a free shadow sweepstakes here on beauty talk!
