Best Primer for Eyes?
I'm looking for a new eye primer. I have Too Faced Shadow Insurance and it's too thick and makes shadow clumpy on me. I also have UD classic eye primer and that's too sticky and doesn't work for me. Any other suggestions? Thanks so much!! :-)

Foundation for people with pale complexions?
Hi, my name is Alyssa and I'd like recommendations and/or advice on what foundation to use for my skin as well as skin care. A little background about my skin, for starters I have a very pale complexion. Also, I have very oily skin which is very acne prone; at the same time it dries out if I wash my face and don't use face lotion afterwards. Walmart and Target sell makeup that are porcelain and ivory colors which usually have pink or yellow undertones which in turn make my skin orange or gives me that dreaded makeup line along my jaw. I have found foundation before, at Sephora, that was my skin color but it made me look dull and dead and I was just not a fan of it and eventually got rid of it after a handful of uses.

Today as I am looking through the orders that are on the way to me I noticed that I ordered 2 more of the same product. One I have already (GA Brow Maestro-ordered same color, wanted to order a different one). And I placed two different orders for Glamglow Thirstycleanse! What a dumbo! Now both those orders will have to be returned...ugh! I just can't believe I did this considering I was checking and rechecking my orders. And yes...I ordered them all from Sephora!

Best Nars blush shades for pale skin?

I'm definitely on the pale/fair side of things and was looking to pick up a blush or two as part of my qualifying purchase. Any shade suggestions?

Wondering: Returning to Store after a Bad Experience
So I'm wondering if anyone's ever done this: 1) Went to Store A and had a bad experience. 2) Went to Store B and bought stuff. 3) Went back to Store A carrying the purchased products from Store B. 4) Spoke to anyone at Store A and said that they just lost out on this sale and more, then showed them your bag of products.

Clarisonic Causing Breakouts!
I purchased a Clarisonic MIA to help with black heads on my nose and chin and to help my makeup set into my skin more instead of just rest on top of it. I have never ever had any type of acne issues before other than the random pimple MAYBE once a month. My skin is more of a combination but it can get dry very quickly in the winter. I have had the same skincare routine for probably 10 years. Clean and Clear Blackhead Earaser Scrub and Cetaphil Facial Moisturizer. No issues.   I know that when first using the Clarisonic it is expected to have a "purging period" This was an awful awful experience. My entire forehead, chin and even a spot or two on my cheek was covered in deep painful pimples. These even with some over the counter acne medication lasted about two weeks and I still (2 months later) have three little red spots on my forehead. For the last month and a half I have continued to break out. Every once in a while i'll get a deep painful one on my chin and my forehead has about 6 very tiny but very red pimples and one on my cheek that keeps coming back.   Side note- I have switched to the Deep Pore brush head because I haven't noticed much change in the black heads on my nose and chin. I also use Cetaphil face cleanser on the days I use my Clarisonic. I use my Clarisonic every two days.    WILL THIS EVER STOP? I have never had acne before and as a 27 year old this is devastating to me.

I know we have a thread where we' talk about being healthier and such, and much like the challenges for makeup, this will be a challenge for exercise.

Once I get the box back I'll pick out some items and donate the remaining items to a local organization that takes and redistributes new and used makeup/beauty items to women in need. I've given beauty products to this organization before and they're really good.   * Please make sure every item is in a plastic ziplock bag to prevent spills.   * Any larger items (full-size perfume, larger body care, larger skincare, large palettes) * Must* be proposed first before adding to your trade. If the next 2-3 people arent interested, please switch that item out.  * The box needs to stay USPS medium or large rate. If you can't fit it, swap out a larger item to make room.     Don't ■ Don't keep the box for more than two days. Keep it moving!

Where do you get your beauty fix?
I've purchased from several companies before, namely Sephora (I'm VIB), as well as ulta because they have a physical store fairly close to me. However, in recent months I've had problems with the customer service at Sephora. Our brick and mortar Sephora store where I live is a little farther than my Ulta store, but it's generally the place I tend to go to when I need to test a product out first.    Like I said, recently I've had several problems in store with them refusing samples of products I know they have when I can see other people walking around with an armful of samples and I can't even get one. Now I've put up with this because I live in a college town, and a lot of stores have employees that just don't put up with crap, but I've been to this Sephora store several times, I know several of the workers by name, and they know I make a purchase every time I walk in the door. However, the Sephora store in my hometown (about two hours away, not in a college town) is beginning to be the same way with terrible customer service.    I'm considering just leaving Sephora all together and getting my products from Nordstrom or somewhere online. Do you guys have recommendations for better companies?    Where do you purchase your beauty products? I don't mind ordering things online, or in store, I don't really have a preference, I just need a company that makes me feel like a more valued customer.

What is the best way to go about making my own lotion?
I have dry eczema ridden skin and so far my search for a natural lotion is futile. So I found a great natural lotion but it's pricey. So I'm venturing into the world of making my own. The lotions ingredients I want in my lotion could be expensive too. So I'm wondering what is the best way to go about making my own lotion with close to the same ingredients? Where do I even buy these oils that won't cost an arm and a leg? The lotion I'm hoping to copy is called Josh Rosebrook's Nutrient Day Cream. I listed the ingredients below: Certified organic aloe juice; certified organic shea butter; organic oils of: evening primrose, hemp seed, jojoba, borage, almond, grapeseed, sesame and sea buckthorn; uncoated non-nano zinc oxide; certified organic lecithin; organic herbal infusions of: calendula flowers, bilberry, chamomile, burdock root, rosemary, fennel seed, dandelion, rose hips, catnip, chickweed, neem leaf, skullcap, ginkgo leaf, linden flowers, hawthorn berry, green tea, flaxseed, nettles, sage, marshmallow root, cayenne, ginseng, peppermint, St. John’s Wort and alfalfa; certified organic vitamin E Oil; wild-crafted candelilla wax; certified organic guar gum and gum arabic; plant sourced xanthan gum & potassium sorbate; organic benzoin tree resin.

Recent Acne Troubles
I have not had acne my entire life until I turned 20, now it is driving me crazy. It is not severe but I would like to get it under control. After going the dermatologist and not being able to afford $800 in prescription creams that were generic but besides the point. I am looking for something to eliminate scaring and redness. I have been looking at the Dr. Dennis Gross One Step Acne Eliminating Pads and wonder if that is a good fit for me? If not what would be best?  And or what is a good face wash for me to be using?    As of right now, I am using a Neutrogena 3-1 Acne Control face wash, along with just a basic moisturizer.    Also in part of this problem, I have been wearing more coverup which is probably not helping the problem. I use to use Maybelline Mineral Powder cover up which I loved but it was discontinued , ever since then I have not found a cover up that works well with my face, either too heavy or not enough coverage. I am wondering which cover up would be good to cover some of these acne marks along with not being too heavy. I am leaning towards Bare Minerals, but am sure what I need or if it is good for me?    Thanks in advance!

Is it okay to use two different glamglow masks in a single week?
Let me just start off by saying that I absolutely love all of the Glamglow masks!   However, my two most favourite masks are the Supermud Clearing Treatment and the Powermud Dualcleanse Treatment.   Can anyone let me know if this is a good routine for both masks: I feel it would be very beneficial to have a clearing treatment and a deep cleanse in one regime. I was thinking of using the Supermud every Wednesday and the Powermud every Sunday... is this a good regime or is using both masks once a week too much for the skin? Let me know! All input is greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!   Ps, my skin type is combination oily, acne prone, and dehydrated.

What did you think?
Hi guys! I just recently received my Kat Von D contour palette, and i must say, its AMAZING! I was going back and forth with the Anastasia palette and this one but Kat Von D won simply because i love her eyeliner and lipstick so i figured why not give it a try right? Plus it looked like the container had way more product (and it did, this is actually a very large palette). The colors were great if you use it with your Beauty blender, i found that using it with a brush can get really dusty and messy quickly. But the palette is way better than the Makeup Forever palette and the Ben Nye powder I had, just because Kat Von D colors show up way better. It looks like my makeup got done by a professional! What did you guys think of it?

I feel like I have tried everything. Can someone please tell me what skin care regimen will reduce the oiliness of my skin and what makeup will contain the oiliness of my skin for more than two hours? I put makeup on at 8am every day and by noon I am extremely oily.   I am currently using Proactiv for my skin care regimen and I am using Cover FX mattifying primer and the Cover FX BB foundation, as well as the Cover FX bronzer. I wash my brushes regularly. I don't know what I am doing wrong and need some help. The girls who work in makeup stores, and I am sorry to throw you all in one pot, I think are just looking to get me to buy the most expensive thing. I don't care how expensive anything is as long as it works, and I have tried many cheap and expensive things, its like my skin gets used to a certain regimen or makeup and then it doesn't work anymore.   I would love an educated answer if someone could please give one!
