Face powder brush
Any suggestions for great brush for applying compact face powder?  I only need light coverage.  (I don't prefer Sephora brushes because that ones I bought shed a lot).  Thanks in advance for all your suggestions.

Color Matching Urban Decay to Bobbi Brown.
If I am a 4.5 in the Naked Urban Decay liquid foundation, which color would I be in for the Bobbi Brown foundation stick? I know they can color match you in stores, but is there any way to do it online? Or is there a link somewhere on the Sephora website where I can do it on my own? Thanks!

I have ruined my eyebrows.
I made the mistake of doing my eyebrows myself. At the time I was unable to get my brows and thought it would be easy to do them myself.  I trimmed them down too low. They are uneven and I took too much off in the front of my right brow. The end of my right brow looks like it may be thinning. They are growing in slow. Some of the new hairs are thin like baby hairs. My hairs may be coming in slow and thin due to years of having them plucked. Is there any products thats are guaranteed to make eyebrow hairs grow back in?

I need help picking a foundation & color... thanks in advance!
I have worn Laura Mercier for years but am between shades, I mix 2/3 Porcelain ivory with 1/3 Vanilla Beige to get the right shade.  I have fair golden/yellow skin undertones and need to stay away from anything pink or neutral if I want to look natural   I was looking at two very well reviewed foundations, the D&G perfect reveal lifting foundation and the Geurlain invisible skin foundation.  I prefer a dewy look but I am a little oily in the T-zone.  I also don't like foundation that comes right off as it ends up all over my steering wheel or cell phone!  I need medium coverage, some uneven skin tone and some fine lines, but nothing too serious.   Thoughts, peeps?  Would really appreciate any guidance.  Thanks!

Need foundation routine for very pale skin!!
  Hello there, I need help with my face!! I have very pale skin, like "Dita Von Teese" pale but with freckles. I also have an extremely neutral undertone, there are no pinks or yellows in my skin. My skin type is combination, I get pretty oily in my T-zone and I am normal everywhere else, can get dry and red with the occasional break out. My current routine gives me a very matte finish, and since I'm so pale it pretty much makes me look dead... I need a new PRIMER, FOUNDATION, POWDER routine that looks natural!! Not too matte and not too dewy. I would prefer a light to medium coverage so if I do get oily I don't turn into a grease ball monster. I have tried two products so far that have failed, the Smashbox Halo powder and the Lancome Nude Miracle foundation. I wanted to love them both, but the lightest shades were both too dark for my skin and also too drying and matte. Any recommendations would be extremely helpful, thank you!!

Why won't my lips stop peeling!!?
It's so annoying. I have used every lip product out there from Bite's and Fresh's scrubs, to Sephora's $6 balm to Amore Pacific's $42 balm, Fresh lip serum and every product in between and nothing helps. NOTHING. Spring, summer, fall and winter, it's not even seasonal. Vaseline even, nothing works.    When I'm not wearing balms I'm wearing moisturizing lipsticks.    I just don't get it. I don't think there is anything else for me to try.    Anyone else suffer from this and have you found a solution? It's been years and years for me of trying everything.

What's wrong with my Naked 2 palette?
okay so I bought my naked 2 palette about a week ago and i'm kinda new to eyeshadow so please don't judge me if this question is really dumb haha.  but there is something weird about the pigmentation in my palette, because some of the colours aren't as pigmented as I thought they would be. for example, verve hardly shows up even when i swatch it with my finger. however, i went to sephora and swatched their palette really lightly on verve and it was REALLY pigmented.  does it get more pigmented as you use it more because of the layers? or does it have to do with something else (like how many people touched it etc.)? or is mine just defected... this is actually really worrying so please help!

Can I call and ask when my year ends?
I'm close to VIB rouge and it would be wonderful for next year since my grad and all, but I know my year to achieve it ends sometime in Christmas break. It's only a $37 purchase but I'm currently spending my money on gifts for others so it would make a difference if I needed to make the purchase by the 27nd instead the 18th. My Sephora account isn't set up right so there's no way I could check online. Could I simply call my local Sephora and ask when my year ends? Or would I need to go to the store itself?
