What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)
We're blabbing about everything else these days, I figured I'd check in and see what people are watching when it comes to TV shows and movies!   It would be foolish to think that this thread could remain spoiler free, so let's be courteous to one another and be sure to spoiler your spoilers. If you don't know how, it's that super adorable little yellow button on the toolbar, located to the right of the bold/italic/underline/strikeout buttons.    DONT FORGET: If you happen to be the most recent post, your first sentence or two of your post will show up EVEN IF ITS IN A SPOILER. So please take care if you're going to go dropping spoiler bombs.    Anywho... I just saw the movie PHOENIX last night and it was absolutely spectacular. Like Academy Award spectacular. If you're fortunate enough have showings in your area, I cannot urge you enough to go see it.    So whatcha'll watchin' these days? What are you anxiously waiting for to start back up?

Sensitive/dry skin
Hi everyone   Does anyone have experience with the skin care brand La Roshe Posay/Avéne?   I have very dry, sensitive skin and I am not sure which one of these two face cream to choose..   Do you girls have any preferences towards one of these specific face creams?    //Flor89

Tinted Moisturizer for Acne Prone Skin (Men)?
Hello everyone. I have been suffering from mild acne for a few years, and I feel like my skin has been improving. However, I do have dark spots left from the acne. I have several dark spots left from the pimples. Sometimes they're dark brown, sometimes red, and sometimes purplish in pictures. It is very unpleasant for me to look at, and I find myself hiding from the camera because I get so self-conscious about those spots. My friends have suggested I use concealer or make up to cover the spots, but I'm not very fond of adding extra products, especially make up, to my already skin care routine. I have thought of using a tinted moisturizer, but I'm not sure if they're any good for my skin/complexion. Currently, I use the Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer, which I'm not even sure if it has worked in lightening my dark spots. Any suggestions on a tinted moisturizer (if I should use one at all, or maybe other products) that can help with my problem? Again, I need help with dark spots that are left from pimples that tend to be red, dark brown, and sometimes purplish depending on the lighting. I get very self-conscious about these spots. I also have combination skin; oily t-zone and sometimes dry cheeks. I don't need to totally cover my blemishes. I just need a tinted moisturizer that can fade/lighten the dark spots, so they aren't very prominent/noticeable. Note: The products I currently use for my skin care routine are: - Lush's Herbalism Skin Cleanser, Grease Lightning, and Tea Tree Water toner - PTR's Max Complexion Correction Pads - Aveeno Active Naturals Postively Radiant Daily Moisturizer (day) - Neutrogena Oily-Free Combination Skin Moisturizer (night)

Shadow Crease color for everyday eye lookthe
I typically wear a single shadow all over the lid and have only recently been experimenting with actually using a darker color in the crease. However, most of the matte brown shades i've tried in the crease tend to look too dark / harsh for me. So I'm looking for suggestions for a crease shade that is slightly darker than my skin tone and will go well with a simple champagne / taupe everyday shadow.   I have fair skin with yellow undertone (ex. I wear the shade Gobi in the Nars sheer glow foundation). My go to everyday shadow colors are  Stila Wheat, Urban Decay Sin, Mac Naked lunch and Burberry Pale Barley.   I'm open to any brands, but I tend to like Stila, Urban Decay and Mac. I would particularly like a Mac suggestion since I'm placing an order withe them anyway (I was considering Soft Brown but I really think it's too dark for me - I was instead looking at Kid or Omega as possibilities).

What's a good upper tight line that doesn't transfer to the bottom tight line
HALL OF FAMER TrysBeautyItems / HALL OF FAMER HALL OF FAMER / replied
Water line, inner part of eye. Google water line eye for pictures. Either way putting makeup there is more prone to end up in the eye, which isn't good. see post

Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil?
So I received a deluxe sample of this from one of those VIB/VIB Rouge promo codes. I am pretty sure this broke me out horribly about 2-3 weeks ago, my skin is still recovering. I started breaking out in little bumps all over my cheeks as well as some painful cystic pimples. The FAB radiance pads are really helping, but I was wondering if anyone else had a bad reaction to this? If so, did you end up figuring out what ingredient in this you don't react well with? I just don't want another break out like this again!   http://www.sephora.com/soothing-cleansing-oil-P387 642?skuId=1642545&icid2=search_search_p387642_imag ...

Hi,  I just cant decide if I should use the gimme brow  or anastasia wiz pencil and powder to do my eyebrows with.  I tried all , and still not sure, although I didnt try the gimme brow the way I read you can use it to shape your brow also.  And not sure about the light or dark shade in it  as my hair is a medium brown, but eyebrows are dark brown.

Masks "sink" into pores
Okay, this isn't a problem (I don't think) but I'm hoping someone can help explain it to me. Anytime I use a mask on my face - usually some kind of clay - once it's dried it looks as though it's sunk into my pores. Even dry, it's a different color on my nose and chin, where my pores are larger and more prominent. But when I wash it off, there's no mask residue left behind. Is it soaking up oil? Does this mean it's working?   Thanks!

HALL OF FAMER TrysBeautyItems / HALL OF FAMER HALL OF FAMER / replied
A clay mask does tend to dry differently in coloring, from when applied. Clay will soak up oil and draw stuff out.   Which mask are you referring to?  see post

Always Have One Pimple On Cheek
I have normal-dehydrated skin, and have never had a problem with acne. Lately I have been getting one sole pimple in the middle of either of my cheeks. When I have one on the left cheek, as soon as it goes away I get one on my right cheek. I can't figure out what is causing them. I change my bed sheets once a week and I never go to sleep without properly cleansing. Do I need to change my pillowcases more often? Any hypotheses or advice will help! Thanks

Accutane Cleanser and Moisturizer
Hey everyone!   I have an appointment with a dermatologist this weekend and I will hopefully be getting Accutane. I have been on it before but never took it properly or completed an entire course hence why I still suffer mild acne and breakouts I will ask for it this time and do it properly for the entire course, and hopefully kick my acne to the curb for good.   Another problem is I am a product junkie and I am CONSTANTLY switching my skincare products. (Also why I have no idea what my skin type is anymore. Extremely acne prone but also get dry and flaky easily. Ugh. )   I am looking for cleanser/moisturizer recommendations for something I can use pre-Accutane, while on Accutane and post-Accutane! I know it's a tall order, but I just want to find my holy grails and stick to them. Accutane makes your skin thin and extremely sensitive and dry as well because it reduces oil production in your skin! I am also very sensitive to fragrances.   THANK YOU!

Acne marks?
I have these red spots on my face where I had a breakout when I was pregnant (a couple months ago).  I have never had an issue with acne until pregnancy hormones.  I'm not sure if this is still acne or if they are left over marks.  Or how to treat it - I've tried Murad, PTR Sulphur Masque, Dennis Gross acne eliminating pads, and some acne face wash.  I'm not really sure what else to do.  They aren't really raised marks, I'm at a total loss.
