Sensitive skin that's dry and aging
Does anyone have any suggestions for extremely sensitive dry skin? I have tried every drug store moisturizer and even keihls, lancome, estee lauder, philosophy. Nothing works. My dermatologist is struggling as well, everything burns, I mean eye watering burn, when it hits my skin. Within a few seconds my face is beet red, my rosacea flares up and then I get acne a few days later. My skin has been so dry lately and im starting to get fine lines and wrinkles under my eyes, so I know I need to do something. But nothing agrees with me! Anyone have similar issues or a miracle skin treatment? The last rx caused me to get cystic acne on my forehead and chin, it's just now clearing up and I am hopeful that something will work!

Daily Skincare - what are you using?
Often people ask for recommendations on a skincare routine or for specific products/combinations.  This might be a place to share your everyday skincare, both AM and PM.  A skincare "what are you wearing" as it were.  Hope this is useful.   *Age - 40 Skin type - oily/combination Current skin condition - quite dehydrated (winter/indoor heating)*   01/17/16 - AM skincare in the order I used 1. Nude Jelly cleanser (love) 2. Pixi Glow tonic (5% glycolic toner - love) 3. Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Spritz (sample) 4. Radical Skincare Youth Infusion serum - hydrating and anti-ageing (new to me.  Testing) 5. Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream (like) 6. Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine cream (really like as an AM moisturizer)   I will try to post PM skincare tonight so the post can be comprehensive.   General comments - Okay skin.  Apparently the age between 38-42 is a transformational time in hormones (dehydrated skin/spots), so I am more aware of how my skin performs/reacts .  My skincare definitely has more "actives" now than before.

Dry combination skin - foundations oxidize and become powdery cakey
I need some help with my foundations.  I currently have ELDW, Nars sheer glow, Smashbox photo finish, MUFE stick foundation and Korean brand cushions.  I have dehydrated dry combination skin with not many other skin problems except when I'm sensitive to a product and breakout.    I make sure to moisturize well at night, use a clarisonic, exfoliate weekly, and do my best to make a good base for the makeup in the mornings.  I use Skinceuticals physical fusion and JM argan oil sunscreen interchangeably depending on my skin type, and use smash box pore minimizing, EL illuminating, and MUFE hydrating primer also interchangeably.  I even tried WG method of applying finishing powder after primer and before foundation to prevent foundation from oxidizing and extend wear time with no success (my foundations looked powdery, patchy, cakey, dry and uneven all at once no matter what tool I used)    what can I possibly do? what foundations can I try and what tools can I look into?  I was thinking  LM smooth powder foundation - some people say that it still oxidizes on oily skin types but I was hoping a powder foundation would last longer  TF born this way foundation - some people also say the same things about oxidizing  It cosmetic flat foundation brushes - none of the dense buffing brushes in the past have worked on my skin (Bobbi Brown full coverage foundation, Marc Jacobs face 2 brush)  MUFE 122 brush - hoping a stippling brush would be a better alternative for my dry skin  using powder foundation as setting powder

Fall / Winter Found in the Wild 2016 (and Holiday Too!)
Until @TheSocialQuota wants to take this over again I'm going to keep the "Found in the Wild" thread going. All that is new on the Sephora site posted in one thread. If I remember correctly, sometime around mid-to-late August early holiday and many fall items start showing up on the Sephora site. So this thread is a place to post all of the new items or brands showing up here (or elsewhere if you want)....updated for Fall and Winter 2016. I will miss most so if you see a new item please post it!!

Which limited edition products and collections are must have and which to skip?
We've all felt the pain of those items that we would have gotten, should have gotten but now must pay way to much to buy from re-sellers.  Maybe collective BT minds can identify (while still in stock) the limited edition must haves. Heading into the holiday season the limited editions will likely be more extravagant and exciting.  I'm eyeing Burberry and Guerlain. Anyone have any thoughts on currently available or soon to be limited editions?   A lot of the holiday stuff is limited so I'm linking to the holiday thread as well :  http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confessions /HOLIDAY-2016/td-p/2454167

Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Four)
Welcome back to the deal sharing fun!   Deals shared here may also be posted to my blog (same name as the thread) unless you write for BT only. If I share your deal, I will always thank you here. I will heart every deal I see (without an outside or cheat link) to acknowledge it. Beautytalk (the forum) does not allow outside links . A heart with no comment means I already have the deal or am deciding not to list it.    Please list the retailer (without the link or cheat link; dot com) if it is not mentioned in the picture. Mods come in more often when they see any type of link.    Thanks for sharing (original deals and repeats are welcome)! Please also share any deal haul you want, especially mystery gifts.    Discussion is encouraged. A lot of questions come with certain deals or retailers. When I see questions I can answer, I will respond (unless the poster consistently ignores me or someone else already answered the complete question). I read all the main posts (so no need to tag me). If you're replying to a post that is not near the top of the thread and want me or a specific person to see it, please tag us.    Beauty Insider Appreciation Week Starts 09/10/16!

Skincare
Hi, I do not understand few things. I have tried few products from Sephora and a lot from Korean brands. When they are non-Korean brands they are hurting my face a lot. For example, Kate Somerville, Ole Henriksen's products, they hurt me a lot. However, when I use korean brands such as all Faceshop products, it's skin, Laneige, etc, they are a lot smoother, so I wonder why does it do this to me! And if I should be restricted to only buy from Korean brands.    thanks!

Introducing Wanderlust Powder Foundation!
Hi Beauty Talkers! We're delighted to welcome the newest addition to our multitasking makeup essential family, Wanderlust Powder Foundation.  We’re so excited to share our journey in creating this product.   Why powder foundation?   Co-founder Divya Gugnani: Pretty much immediately after we launched our Flash Focus Hydrating Foundation we got calls, emails, social media posts, and a barrage of inquiries about when we would have a powder foundation. A powder foundation? I didn’t get it. I hadn’t used powder foundation on my face since I was 16 and struggling with t-zone issues and teenage acne. But Lindsay was a believer….   Co-founder Lindsay Ellingson: I've always used powder foundation to mask my hyperpigmentation which, for me, is caused by melasma. I've struggled with it for years. When we launched Wander Beauty it became my mission to develop a talc-free powder that would cover imperfections without looking cakey, my goal was to create a powder foundation that actually looks like skin!   But really, is it full coverage?   LE: The first thing you will notice about our powder is the luxurious ultra-fine feel which translates to the most natural looking, flawless complexion. It's so lightweight on your skin but highly pigmented so it doesn't feel like a mask. One swipe of our foundation and my pigmentation is covered. Our goal is to enhance your natural beauty not cover it!   But is it a multitasker? Is it an essential?   DG: At Wander Beauty we focus on creating multitasking makeup essentials and for real this is... Any special ingredients?   LE: We knew we wanted to make it talc-free so it wouldn’t look ashy or give a white cast in photos. We also enriched it with our favorite skin-loving ingredients from around the globe:   Aloe Leaf Extract (Korea) – moisturizes skin and restores suppleness Hibiscus Flower Extract (France) – evens skin tone, increases elasticity, and protects against free radical damage Honeysuckle Flower Extract (Korea) – has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties Jojoba Esters (United States) – promotes skin healing with antimicrobial properties Safflower Flower Extract (Korea) – contains linoleic acid to unclog pores and stimulate regeneration of new cells   What about the applicator? DG: I can’t stand dirty, makeup-filled sponges that break apart. So, we created an antimicrobial rubicell sponge in Korea that deposits our silky powder evenly for full coverage. It’s reusable and easy to wash with antibacterial soap and water.     How do you wear it?   DG: I wear Wanderlust in Medium on clean moisturized skin on days when I have meetings from morning to night or when I have a big event. It lasts till I take it off and gives me coverage while still looking natural. It’s my skin, only with an airbrushed filter ;-)   LE: I like to wear Wanderlust in Light as a finishing powder over our Flash Focus Hydrating Foundation stick. It's gives me just the right amount of coverage with a radiant finish.The great thing about our powder is that it's so versatile, it looks just as great as a foundation on its own for a more matte finish.     Here's the link:  http://www.sephora.com/wanderlust-powder-foundatio n-P411529?skuId=1856848&icid2=products%20grid 41152...

Dry Acne prone skin routine!
Hi!  My skin is dry but oily on my lower forehead. I have a few acne spots and a lot of dry patches below my eyebrows, on the upper half of my chin and on my lower cheeks. This is what my routine is now. I use cetaphil to wash my face with a Clarisonic and then I use the neutrogena hydro boost gel creme. I then use a beauty blender to apply either the Too Faced Born this way Foundation or the IT cosmetics cc creme, and apply a Mac setting powder. when I take my makeup off at night I will sometimes put on Vitamin E creme or Aquaphor on my dry patches to help them go away but it doesn't do much. Any suggestions?

Most Repurchased Products in Your Makeup Collection ?
what are those few products you are devoted to ? not your fair-weather friends, but the  in it for the long haul committed parters ? as i pushed the "place order" button on my guerlain maxi lash mascara i realized our relationship had officially reached "the next level", and had me wondering what other products i--and you guys--have that have managed to reach that depth of loyalty that only a woman and her favorite concealer can comprehend.......   i'm thinking of generally keeping this both makeup only, as well as products you still have/repurchase (as in, not things you've broken up with) but of course, list whatever you want. no actual rules here, c'mon.   in no particular order ! GUERLAIN maxi lash mascara (repurchased 4x). this mascara has ruined other mascaras for me, really. my wallet cries but my lashes sing ! need i say more ? NARS radiant creamy concealer (repurchased 10000x; i don't remember, but probably around 6 or 7 times ? more ?!!). my fave concealer, actually matches my skin (which is huge) and doesn't dry out my under eyes, which until i found this  concealer was a problem for me. GIORGIO ARMANI luminous silk foundation (repurchased 5x). the only wavering commitment i have to this foundation is for navigating color matches. but the texture, wear, coverage and over all effect make this my HG foundation. MAC honey love matte lipstick. (5x ?) granted, honeylove has faded to the background over the past year, but i've repurchased this baby over and over, and is definitely the most repurchased lipstick in my collection... i'll add more if i think of any ! how 'bout you ?
