PSA to all members, new and old
Please resist using the word "best " in posts.  "What is the  best  foundation…" B est is a subjective term - you will not get a qualified answer because everyone's BEST will be different. Ask well thought out questions that drill down to the exact information you need/want. EXAMPLE: "I need a foundation with variable coverage, no SPF, for normal to dry skin. I'd prefer a liquid to cream. Suggestions?"   I see a lot of posts asking for the best product and it's a little frustrating because there are A LOT of products that are really good and it's hard to filter out the ones that will work for the OP.  Please keep this in mind. Thank you! <3

eyeliner troubles!
Hi, I bought an Urban Decay eyeliner which glides on really beautifully at first. But throughout the course of the day, it tends to smudge and get really ugly. I love eyeliner but I had to stop wearing it because of this. I feel like even waterproof eyeliners smudge. Can anyone recommend a really good eyeliner that will  last all day and look beautiful without smudging? Thanks <3

Dolce and Gabanna Luminous Foundation shade question?
Hello Beauty insiders,   I was hoping someone could help me with finding a shade in the D&G Luminous Foundation. I might not  be able to get to a sephora store before the sale, and need to set an order. I am a terre nueve shade in the NARS Tinted moisturizer and Linen shade in clinique even better makeup. I have never used anything else, and I feel the best shade for me would be in between these two.    When I put these options into the Skin IQ, it didn't list this foundation as one of the best matches. Can someone recommend a shade if they had experience with the D&G option  or a foundation that is similar and can give you even glowy finish, but not heavy coverage? Someone recommended Chanel Aqua or Dior Glowing makeup. Recommendations and shade help is appreciated. Thank You!

Milia bumps or Acne?
I have all these bumps on my face. I have oily skin and I don't know how to get rid of these bumps. I have had these for about 6 months now and I didn't change anything in my skin care routine. I've used a clarisonic for 5 years now so I don't know what's going on.

dry flaky areas on nose creases??
I don't know what this is, but I just have dry, flaky skin just at the creases of my nose that are particularly visible when I wear makeup (mineral or liquid) and I don't know how to get rid of it. I've tried good moisturizers, but it doesn't seem to work and it's very isolated to just the nose crease. I do have dry skin in general, but a good moisturizer usually takes care of any dryness EXCEPT here. It's not so much "patches" of skin, it looks maybe more like pores that have flaked off or something. It's hard to describe. Maybe I will take a picture. Does anybody know what the heck I'm talking about? lol If so, what skin regiment would you recommend?

Outstanding October Hauls!!
It's midnight in New York and you know what that means... it's October!! I don't care if I'm in California, I'm still making this post hahaha.    I started my haul at CVS because my sister had $10 rewards for beauty and I used that towards lipsticks for my kit.    I got Wet n Wild lipsticks in Sugar Plum Fairy, Wine Room, and Mauve Outta Here. I also got a Milani lipstick in High Voltage. I paid $2 for 4 lipsticks!   I went to Ulta to pick up NYX Dark Circle Corrector and the Essence Lipstick (4th one above) in Wear Berries   THEN, I went to Sephora to pick up a free deluxe sample of Bare Minerals lipstick in Speak Your Mind and my MUFE Birthday gift!     PS my birthday is October 18 hehe

Beginner's make up must haves for business dress code.
What are some good makeup to have for beginners for work; I am in the professional phase of college and it is a business dress code. We can dress down from business but it is not enough to be called business casual. I bought a liquid foundation which I rarely use and I also have a bare minerals powder which I use more often. I have one blush from tarte called captivating, stila eyeliner and a smashbox full exposure palette. I am looking for a few makeup must haves for fall/winter or just in general to upgrade my make up a bit.

Hidding my stash (hauls)
With all the sales going on and holiday sets and limited edition products, and new items, I've been doing alot of purchases lately. Think I've gone a little overboard. Hey you gotta get them when they are in stock otherwise they go out of stock... for ever!   Any how I find myself hidding my purchases and receipts. Not because I don't have enough money for my purchases, I budget well, but because I have too much already.    Tell me do you do the same?  Where do you hide your newly bought treasures?

Addicted to buying makeup, HELP !

I have a lot of makeup already and I certainly do not need more. I'm sure I am not the only one with this problem but if anyone can help me, I would appreciate.    Do you have any tips on reducing your impulse purchases ? or just stop buying so much makeup all the time?

This will be a list not just for Rouge events, but for any in store brand events, free gift promos, point promos, discount days, etc. Some events are nation wide and in Canada, some are only in certain markets.

Foundation help
If anyone know, please help me I really appreciate. Anyone also know any good CC cream that would wear alone and can put onto  bare and naked skin?  I am really interested in the YSL Ink Fusion , Bobbi Brown Weightless Powder Foundation  Chanel  Les Beiges All in One Healthy Glow. Have  anyone tried them? I also intend to get the code for YSL,  however, the deluxe sample in my appropriate color is gone fast         http://www.sephora.com/skin-weightless-powder-foun dation-P388664?skuId=1646215   Also, does anyone know how to distinguish  skin is yellow tone or pink undertone? And How is it associated with foundation has Warm and Cool color?  I am Asian. I think my skin is yellow tone or undertone. SHould I use a Warm color in foundation?     However, I always have problem with the color match. I even went to store to check out my shade. I used to purchase Makeup Forever Liquid Foundation in 120. Look good in store and bought it . when I travel to Viet Nam which has humid weather. The color seems to not right too yellow and cakey.  I put it aside and then give away to my sis. To play safe, I am only wearing SHiseido tinted moisturizer in shade 1 ( not a perfect shade, but acceptable somehow). it is super light, and shade 2 turns out really dark on my skin. I first purchase shade 2 without realizing too dark until my brother told me : hey, sis, your face looks so dirty.     Thanks in advance,     Yen

Beauty Advent Calendars 2014
I am crazy about advent calendars! (I have several wooden ones that I fill with my parents' and brother's favorite candies each December.)    So last holiday season, when I learned that there were Beauty calendars, filled with skincare, makeup, body, and fragrance products, I flipped! Last year, there was a memorable Benefit advent calendar. (Let's not even talk about this year's over-priced version.)    This year, there are even more advent calendars being offered, but most of them are exclusive to the U.K. I have seen U.K. bloggers post about Jo Malone, Body Shop, L'Occitane and Yankee Candle advent calendars--just to name a few. (You can google "best beauty advent calendars" to see all the awesome goodness.)   I just bought the QVC version!    I hope that the few advent calendars offered in the U.S. are really popular and are snapped up this year, so that retailers will understand the demand. Then hopefully, we will get more such beauty calendars available for U.S. customers in upcoming years.    Who else is crazy about these?       Jo Malone Advent (2014) L'Occitane Advent (2014) Body Shop Advent (2014) QVC Advent (2014)   Selfridges (UK department store) Advent (2014)
