i just received YSL Vernis A Levres Glossy stain in color 13 from Sephora online but the packaging looks different. The YSL logo is black instead of red/pink & the color written is Rose Tempera instead of Rose Tempura. Is it fine, does someone have any clue about this ?
Just noticed that all of the spring stuff is showing up (early as always) but the thread is still specific to Winter (which it is...but tell the brands). So what have you found, dear BTers, that is new on Sephora...
Hi! I am having a hard time choosing the right Urban Decay Naked Concealer shade. The foundation I wear is the Sephora 10HR Wear Perfection Foundation in the shade 22 Light Natural and it is the absolute perfect shade for me. I don't have severe under eye circles or darkness, only moderate. I would like the concealer to highlight my eyes which is why I'm not sure which shade to choose. I got a sample of the Light Warm shade and it blends perfectly but I don't feel that it provides enough of a highlight and contrast. Thank you!
I have really oily skin and acne scars I have been looking for a foundation with great coverage and a matte finish. I've been searching for a while now and still nothing. Also looking for a good contour kit. I have a small scar(one of many) on one side of my face to when I contour the powder doesn't catch on. Help please?
Hi! I'm thinking about picking up the Nars Soft Velvet Loose Powder. I tried to use the Color IQ but I don't think this powder is on there. I wear either a 3.0 or a 4.0 in the UD Naked Skin Foundation (depending on the time of year). What shade would you recommend? Thanks!
So i've been wearing makeup for about a year now. I have tried several different foundations and primers and used several different tools to apply and my foundation ALWAYS looks cakey or looks separated on my skin. No matter what primer, moisturizer, or foundation i use my foundation finish is just so cakey looking. Ive practiced all of these techniques and nothing has worked. I use a beauty blender most of the time but i have a lot of redness/acne so i sometimes use a brush for more coverage. Even when i use the blender(damp) it looks cakey. I will normally use the Kat Von D lock it tattoo foundation but it will cake so easily and its very noticeable. I have combo skin so i have matte and dewy foundations. I find that dewy looks abit more better but the coverage doesnt work because i dont want to look dewy if you can just see my acne/redness. Im thinking about going into sephora sometime this month and getting the Too Faced Born This Way foundation because it gives a nice finish and seems to not look cakey in the tutorials ive seen. So my questions are..Can anybody please suggest some tips on some primers or moisturizers that wont make my makeup look cakey. What are some foundations that give a more dewy look but with full coverage? Whats the best way to layer foundation for a more full coverage look without it caking? if u can help, thanks!
I would really love some help. I really would love to know what shade for my skin tone I need. Every time when I was at a photoshoot every time people use different products and I have no idea what shade or keep track. I would love to know what is a great recommended face primer, the whole list to contour my face. I am very pale lol. I call it the "phantom" skin tone. I swear I feel like you can see my veins lol. I plan on going to the sephora store that open a while ago. Any advice would be great
I recently heard from a friend that Girlacktic was (or has, she didnt specify time and she told me a while ago) coming to Canada and would be sold at sephora, has anyone heard this? Does anyone know if its true or know when and if it is coming to sephoras in Canada? Holding its true and not hear say but ya never know ay?
So recently I wanted to find a mascara primer or a conditioner that would help my natural lashes grow, and we all have those no makeup days and i would always look at my natural lashes and see them as small. So does anyone have any recommendations?
Hi, I used to have really nice tight curls but I had dyed it blonde and also did keratin treatment to smooth out my hair and that gave loose curs with lots of frizziness that I have now. I was wondering is there any advice or products I can use to get my tight curls back in the way I had them? Thank you!
So I recently bought the Kat Von D Lock it Tattoo Foundation. I'm very fair with pink undertones so it's one of the few foundations that actually match my skin. It's a PERFECT match. Unfortunately it feels very heavy to me. It's just too thick for me and I feel it all day long and it's very annoying. I don't want to return it because it's just such a perfect color. Am I able to mix it with a lotion or something to thin it out? If so, what kind of face lotion, because I'm pretty sure the foundation is silicone based?

I have fair skin and have had dark circles under my eyes my entire life. I have tried concealers and nothing covers them up completely. I am looking for a solution to this without breaking the bank. Also, No matter what kind of skin care regime I use I always get a random breakout around my chin or mouth. I remove my makeup every night with Clinique take the day off cleansing balm, wash my face with DE exclusive cleanser, then tone and moisturize. Then I wake up with a zit on my chin... WHAT?? Please help!
I love using my oil free BB cream and I plan to get it in a cushion form of the laneige pore control bb cushion. I also love using my tarte stick concealer. However, the concealer stains my glasses. My skin gets shiny and oily during the day and what can I use to make my skin matte? I do plan on getting the make up forever step 1 equalizer primer for oily skin since everyone recommends it. Should I get a blotting powder (white cast or no ?) and this primer or touch up with blotting paper then with the laneige cushion and tarte stick concealer ?
Just curious in the sense that I haven't gotten to the store yet to physically try it but just wondering if there is an equivalency across brands. I've used NARS for a few years and as much as I love it I do love makeup and trying new things. I typically use NARS stromboli which is a medium with olive undertones but I can't seem to find one close to it in the Giorgio Armani brand.
My skin has many red areas, and they do not go away with foundation or powder alone. I am wondering what products would be helpful for this. I also tend to have oilier skin, so a product that is long lasting would be much more suitable for me. Thanks!!
Hi there! I just had my trial with my MUA for my wedding. He used airbrushed my foundation and I'm not in love with the coverage. I think I'm used to a thicker texture for full coverage. Can I have him use my normal long-wearing foundation (pür liquid) underneath a layer of the airbrush? Will this give me a more full coverage look with an airbrush finish?
I have very dry, sensitive and flaky skin. Every time I put on foundation it looks cakey, sticks to my dry skin or doesn't blend into my skin. I wash my face, use moisturizer and a primer but still does it. Anyone recommend maybe a good moisturizer, foundation and primer? Or maybe I'm not apply it right?
