Too Faced Born This Way foundation shade?
Hi. I'm hoping for recommendations on which shade I should order in the Born This Way foundation. I am currently using the following and they are a good match for the most part:   1) MAC Waterweight - NC20 (best match I have) 2) Armani Luminous Silk - shade 4 3) Guerlain Lingerie de Peau - 02 - beige clair   I've tried the Color IQ match lookup for the Guerlain and Armani, but there wasn't an exact match for the Too Faced.   Thank you!!!

deep pimple
my skin is usually pretty clear, but once in a while i start to feel one of those deep pimples about to surface.   is there anything i can do to prevent it from fully forming?    i try everything to make it go away as soon as i feel it coming, but within a day or two it turns into a huge blemish that takes weeks to go away.   are there any good products i can apply as soon as i feel it coming to stop it from growing?   price isn't an issue as long as it works, I'm desperate lol    thank you!!

Moisturizer for dry, acne prone skin!
Hi everyone! I have been dealing with bad cystic acne on my left cheek and chin, and have small white heads sometimes on my forehead. I have been to a dermatologist who told me to use a benzoyl peroxide face wash at night with my clarisonic and Noxema deep pore cleanser in the morning. I have been able to get most of my acne under control, the only problem is I have SUPER dry skin. My cheeks and chin peel even when I use a moisturizer twice a day. Right now I am using clean and clear salicylic acid lotion in the morning and then I use first aid beauty intense repair lotion at night. I am still getting acne and my skin is still so dry... Does anyone have a moisturizer they love that will not break out dry skin? I am always super scared to use something with oil in it because everyone says oils cause acne. Any help would be appreciated!

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?

Tretinoin Skincare Routine?
Hello all!    My doctor has put me on Tretinoin .1% to help erase the annoying red marks that WILL NOT go away. I wouldn't say I have acne. I have minor breakouts when I have a reaction to something, hormonal breakouts, ya know the normal stuff. My problem was picking. So, I needed something serious to help with scars and those annoying bright red marks that force you to wear makeup. I've also been put on minocycline as well as a topical anti-bacteria cream.   My question is this :  What products are a must with these prescriptions? I mean my face is SO DRY. Which is expected but I've tried every lotion under the sun I feel like and nothing is really doing justice. I've even tried Josie Maron Aragon Oil! I keep reading Cerve Pm or the lotion in the tub, I've heard Sephora has a Ceramide moisturizer as well? I've also been told ot make sure I incorporate lots of antioxidants. Is there a product that has all of this? What should I be looking for?    AHH! HELP PLEASE!

Clinique Acne Solutions Shade Help
I've been using Clinique acne solutions makeup (foundation) for the past year and I really like it. The only problem is that the closest shade to my skin tone right now has a more cool undertone and it kind of looks weird. Does anyone know which shades have more yellow or neutral undertones and can you name them from lightest to darkest? I'm getting tanner since it's the summer and I would love to find something better suited to my skin tone. THANK YOUU!   Side note: If you guys have any long-wear foundation that doesn't break you out, suitable for oily-combination acne-prone skin pleaseeee give me some recommendations. THANKS AGAIN!

Sensitive Skin
I've had extremely sensitive skin all my life, if anything comes in contact with my face I break out in that area. As I got older, it's gotten a little better, but lately I've been breaking out due to a cleanroom suit I wear at work over my face and head. Is there something unnoticeable I can wear during the day to protect my face?

Pores & tiny scars
Hello beauties!   I was wondering what would be great recommendations for pores and I guess I would say tiny scars (like open pores, but it's the scarring left behind from previous breakouts and they're really small. The scars although small are pretty noticeable to me and I hate the idea of using so much primer on my face before applying my makeup for a smooth look.   Through trial and error, I've cleared and smoothed my skin a lot. It was horrible, patchy and very oily before.   I'm wondering what further step I could take for my nose and the areas next to my nose to heal and close the pores..? I have no clue!   Any advise and recommendations help! Thank you!

Finding the culprit!
Hello everyone, I hope you could share some pointers to what just attacked my face!  I began using a new foundation, and after about two days of use, woke up to blackheads. I get a spot or two like clockwork, hormonal, sometimes even cysts, but I haven't had actual blackheads invade like this since I was twelve or so!  My question is, would the foundation be to blame, or is it more likely the  new sleep oil that I've been sampling for around a week?  i also have been experiencing itching although there is zero flaking, hives, or redness.   Id hate to do a used return if it is another product.  Everything else in my routine is 100% the same.   Thanks in advance!!
