Anastasia dipbrow pomade - which shade for my brows?
Hi girls, was wondering what shade I should go for for my brows, either blonde or taupe? I've added pictures so you all can see what they are like.  Thank you!

Hi @Lou1997,   I agree with @Mochaapj! Blonde will most likely be too light. I would definitely recommend the shade, Taupe. :)   Always, Danee see post
acne scaring/spot scars and ways to get rid of bumpy, spotty skin
Hi again guys! Okay so I suffer with bad break outs and being a picker and tempted to pick my spots i've left myself with scaring!! silly of me obviously. But I was wondering what can help fade them away. Home remedies or CHEAP products as I can't afford expensive stuff! I have sensitive skin and combination skin. ALSO on my forehead i seem to have loads and loads of spots but they're not extremely visible and they don't come to the surface where they are white heads...They're literally JUST THERE. how can i get rid of this or help get rid of it?!! I've always dreamed of having lovely skin. my skin used to be great when i was 14 but when i turned 15 ( 18 this year ) BOOM break out into millions of spots!   ANY advice is appreciated i could really use it! Thanks a bunch!!!

Help with sudden increased oiliness of T-zone on otherwise dry skin
Hi everyone, I have had dry, slightly combination skin (in that the t-zone is oilier, but not really that much). I've never had to deal with breakouts before. However, of late, I have been noticing that the t-zone pores look larger, and I end up having a few breakouts on my cheek as well. Am I overdoing the moisturizing/hydrating bit in my skincare routine? At night, I cleanse with the Ole Henriksen Pure truth cleanser, then with the Fresh Soy Cleanser. I then use the FAB radiance pads and then use Boscia's Tsubaki Beauty Oil and follow up with a hydrating night cream. Is that too much? Should I replace the Tsubaki beauty oil with another serum?

Found on the Sephora France site
i like to look at the international Sephora sites to drool over things I can't get (or that I pray N. America will get eventually). Found these two items today.  I wonder if the Oil Infusion is a dupe for the YSL??  I hope we get these eventually.

Can I use Proactiv with my Mia 2?
I started using my Mia 2 in January but I switched to Proactiv on the first of March and haven't used my Mia 2 since - I'm afraid the little beads/rough texture of Proactiv's cleanser could harm it! Is it okay to use them together? Thanks!

Tom ford green eye shadow?
So Ive found myself going down the rabbit hole that is Tom Ford beauty. I picked up the Seductive Rose quad yesterday. I really like the formula, particularly of the celestials. Is there a green eyeshadow in existence? I've been wondering if it is worth tracking down the Emerald Lust quad, but unsure of the formula of the 4 colors and if any celestials are included?   Are their any options other than the Sahara Haze quad? Thanks!

Makeup Forever Metal Palette busted within 30 mins of use.
Do you see the huge dents in it on the bottom left hand corner?  I stacked them on top of each other and that's what happened.  I thought I'd give everyone a heads up because I know a lot of us have been waiting on pins and needles for this palette.  Not worth it!  It's the same thickness as the MAC pro palettes.  I'm just going to get another one of those.  These are going to get returned on Monday.  Total garbage!   Edit: I can't believe I made the n00b mistake and put it in the acne board.  Sorry!

How to break up with Proactiv+
Last year I was getting sick of my acne so I bought a Clarisonic mia 2 with my christmas money and some Fresh Soy Face cleanser after hearing such great things about it. Needless to say my face purged. Then it didn't stop purging. My acne was out of control! I have always had bumps but like at it's worst 2-3 at a time on my face. With the Clarisonic it was like 10 nasty gooey pimples on my face all the time. I then tried switching to Philosphy's purity and still no help. Then I tried the acne brush head with the acne face wash and still it was no help. By this point I had stopped using it twice a day and only using it once a day and then once every other day and still the acne just kept coming. Finally I packed up the Clarisonic and haven't used it since.   I tried using the Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel's (just 1/4 of the sheet at night) while washing with the fresh in the morning and while my skin stopped freaking out I still had pimples and the peel was making my skin super sensitive. I finally placed an order for Proactiv+. I had used Proactiv with some success but I hated how dry it made my skin and missing one night and my bumps would come back even worse.    It's been 8 months on proactiv+ and even on this new "hydrating" formula my skin is still super dry. In fact the main reason I'm using the proactiv is to gently scrub at the dry patches on my face. I hate using the stuff and really for just a handful of bumps I don't think I need to be going to these extremes. Plus I have been having TONS of problems with the proactiv customer service people. It's just a hassle and expense I don't think I need.    I want to use this expensive device I paid for and get off the proactiv+ because I think it's doing more harm then good to my skin. Anyone have any tips for getting off the Proactiv+?

Looking for recommendations of gloss/stain type product
I am on the hunt for a sort of dusty type MLB shade in a glossy stain type formula. My very favorite lip color is the nars audacious in Anna, but I can't find anything similar in tone in other formulations.

Jars....Why?
I don't understand why so many brands put their products in jars. It drives me crazy! Either I have to dip my finger in the product to get it out, or get a spatula that constantly needs cleaned- and it's messy. Plus, I've heard that while the jar is open, the active ingredients can break down (don't know how much truth there is in that, though.) So, what is the reason for brands using heavy, inconvenient jars instead of a pump? Does anyone prefer a jar over a pump? I think that some of the products with pumps are just as elegant looking as the jars. Personally, I am much more likely to purchase something with a pump, and have passed on a product just because it comes in a jar (but if it is something that people are really raving about, I might buy it just to satisfy my curiosity.)
