So I got tired of waiting for Perversion mascara to be available in store and bought the Marc Jacobs Omega Lash. I'm on the fence about it. I do LIKE it but I'm not sure I LOVE it. All things being equal, I probably prefer Too Faced Better than Sex because it gave me more volume and fullness. MJ's gives a ton of length, but I already have super duper crazy long lashes and usually want fullness and volume over lengthening. Having said that I am not one for returning products without a REALLY good reason. I really dislike returns of products done lightly as in the end that drives up prices and is extremely wasteful. I think I should just keep and use the mascara. It's a nice mascara and even though it doesn't blow me away, in 2 months I can justify a new one, and hopefully by then Perversion will be available. I desperately needed a new mascara as my old TFBTS was way old. OK, I think I just talked myself into keeping it. 2 months won't kill me. I know it was pricey at $33 CAD, and if I HATED it then I would return it, but I don't think feeling "meh" about a product justifies returning it. OK, sorry, I didn't really ask a question there so much as I just went through a thought process exercise. :-)
Hello! I'm currently looking for an eye cream to incorporate into my skincare regimen. I'm almost 20 and don't have any specific concerns with my eyes. I've tried a few samples from different brands (Kiehl's, Chanel, Sephora), that target a specific eye concern, but nothing has wowed me. Though I find eye creams to be a bit of a drag, I realize and understand the importance of having an eye cream I can use daily. Suggestions and helpful feedback is greatly appreciated!
Hi!! Im looking for a rich oil/serum with vitamin C that helps me with my skin because I will get married in 6 months and want to look my best!! I would love to know what is best for brightening the skin. I have rosacea and combination skin, so Its very difficult for me to know what is best!! And the other question is: can I use both?? I know Maracuja oil is to use at night, and the other can be used in the morning or/and that night. Please help me thank you!!!
Hi! I've always used Clinique foundations because they're deemed hypoallergenic but am still having sensitivity issues. My skin is always bright red and irritated, and frequently peels or is oily (usually both at the same time... which I didn't know was possible). I also have a problem with clogged pores and am allergic to a lot of fragrances. Anyone have recommendations, please??
I always knew that my skin is oily, but I think my skin is also dehydrated....because I rarely drink water.. heheh. I did a search and a lot of people recommended drinking more water (duh), Clinique Moisture Surge, and Korres Greek Yogurt Moisturizing Face Cream. Is there anything else that you can recommend?

I have ren calm replenishing gel, I have Mario b buffering lotion and murad exfoliating serum and acne cleanser. also have prescription lotion for pimples.... And murad tonEr. Someone please help suggest a product for the oil!! Im 22 by the way
I am at a point where I have tried everything to try and control the oil on my nose and t-zone area and nothing has worked so far. I have tried skin care products such as origins zero oil, shisheido, MAC, and Christian Dior. I have also tried mattifiers from MAC, Peter Thomas Roth, Becca, Murad, Boscia, cover FX, and mineral veil. A few products help for about an hour or two but I'm oily again after about 2 hours. Any suggestions on something that I can try?
i recently have researched the naked palettes and have no idea which one to purchase. Im not the biggest fan of the naked 3 because i am not a huge a fan of pink. so i was thinking either the 1st or 2nd one. I have dark brown hair and have medium/fair skin tone and green/brown eyes. Anyone have any suggestions on what i should purchase?!
Is anyone familiar enough with both these BBs to be able to make a comparison on coverage, feel, heaviness etc? I've worn Guerlain's and am very impressed with the coverage - almost as good as foundation If not just as good, esp for the under eye area - I don't even need concealer. I don't think the same is true for TF.
I feel bad even writing this...and I'm not trying to offend any of the girls that work for Sephora. I just want to know if anyone else has had a bad experience with a makeover at Sephora. I went there yesterday for foundation, concealer and blush. She offered to try some products on me. I don't know if it was her or the lighting, but the concealer she had used (becca creamy concealer) was SO ORANGE on my skin. I am super pale, and I don't know why she thought it looked good. Then she tried a MUFE concealer under my eyes, and it was ghostly and all you could see was my purple bags. Next we moved on to foundation, and she still couldn't get a color right. So now I am totally clues as to what skin tone/IQ I am :-( A little disappointing. Do you know if they take makeup training classes like MAC does, or is it just basic application? Thanks for any feedback.
Most of the supplements from HUM have high ratings on this site, but I'm wondering if anyone has tried any of them? They're pretty new on here and I usually take the reviews here with a grain of salt. In general, I don't sit on either side of the fence when it comes to supplements and if they work or not. I'd love to hear anyone's experience with these - favorable or not so much. Although I'm interested in most of them, I'm particularly intrigued by the Runway Ready set and the Daily Cleanse.
Yep, another question. So I bought Guerlain's BB but it's very light for me right now but will be great once my tan wears off in the Fall. I also bought Nars Bronzer to wear over it and that really does help. I was given a sample of the Guerlain liquid bronzer and I thought that might be the best way to go but what is the ratio of bronzer to BB? I just tried to mix the two together and got a ton of product waste trying to figure it out. Is there a formula to use to blend them together - I'm afraid just pumping out a bit of this and a bit of that is going to result in the wrong color or a ton of waste as I keep trying and retrying to get the right blend. Maybe I should just stick with one of my other BBs that does match my skin tone right now, I just happen to love the coverage of Guerlain's.
Makeup isn't my environment, yet. And contouring is very new to me. I was wondering what the store carried for contouring products? What would you guys recommend I'd buy as a new person to this? Like I'm sure you can go out and get 20 different things just to do this, but I want something simple and straight forward. I'll go in and have someone show me how to contour my face, but it would be less overwhelming if I had someone here tell what would be best to get and what brushes would be most useful and needed.
If I already have nice thick brows and they're mostly already dark as it is.. Which would you perfer I would get.. The Anastasia Brow wiz or the Anastasia dipbrow? I want my eyebrows to be more defined and there are some spars areas..
We are going to Barcelona and Paris and Provence. Don't want to be loaded down with product. Dry/krepey eyes, 58 years old. What should I bring? I use everything- cleanser, serum, moisture with spf, light powder, concealer, liner, shadow, mascara, lipstick/gloss. Any eye shadow that's powder doesn't seem to work. Love the smaller, all in one kits yet they mostly feather pearly, sparkle shades that don't work. Fair skin, green eyes. HELP!
I made a post last week about need a solution to my lipstick application problems but nothing is working still. I took mostly everyones advice and it still isn't working. Every time I put on lipstick it still always settles into my lip lines. I prime my lips with the Bite Beauty Lip Primer and then I line my lips with a lip liner and apply my lipstick of choice and it still settles into my lip lines. I exfoliate my lips but it still doesn't help. Is there anything else I can do?
Hey guys, could someone tell me how the Beauty Studio make-overs go? Like, once you are there do you tell them what products to use or they just sit you down and use the products they think are best? Also, BIG QUESTION, do you show up with a clean face (no makeup)? I don't feel too comfortable walking around the mall bare-faced until I am able to make my way through the food court and into the Sephora store. Can make-up simply be removed at the store instead? I have never used this service and am completely clueless as to how it goes (besides making the online appointment). Help?
Hi girls! I need your help to find my shade in other full coverage foundations and concealer. I think Marc Jacob's gel genius foundation in 46 "Golden Deep" is perfect. So what other foundation / shade would be perfect or close to perfect? High-end and/or drugstore. *please don't use the "color iq" I've tried it and found it inaccurate. thanks!
So, I've tried literally every single foundation, bb, cc, and tinted moisturizer that Sephora carries that fits my requirements (moisturizing, non-chemical SPF, doesn't settle into my huge pores or flaky spots, non-sticky, medium coverage) and not a single one has worked. I finally tried the Clinique Even Better foundation, however what appears to be the lightest shade (linen) is still one shade too dark for my ultra-pale skin. I really love this foundation, and I'd like to use it. Anybody have any ideas how I could make this foundation work for me?
I am looking some retinol treatment now that my BDAY is coming up and I will be soon officially be in my late twenties. UGH. So far the BE from Sephora gave me samples from REN and Philosophy's "Help Me". I liked the REN better because I thought I felt improvement and the Help Me just doesn't feel as strong enough compared to the Ren. My skin is "normal" neither dry nor oily but I have been having some acne lately which is quite odd since I thought I was over that (stress, hormones?? IDK) and price point isn't really an object (I use La Mer daily lol) plus 4x points next week YAY! Thanks for your help and suggestions!!
I'll admit that even though I've been into makeup for a pretty long time, I never really payed too much attention to my skin. But, now I'm trying to change that and I don't even know where to start! I've just run out of my cheap drugstore facial cleanser, so I figure it's time I actually put some effort into this. I think my face would be considered combination. It gets both oily and dry...sometimes it looks like dry skin with oil ON TOP of it, ugh. (But, I've been using Ceramidin, which seems to be taking care of that pretty well.) I very rarely get acne and I don't really have any blemishes other than a kind of uneven skintone. And my skin doesn't seem to be very sensitive. So, I'm looking for a daily cleanser for combination skin, doesn't need any special acne treatment, and doesn't necessarily have to be for sensitive skin. Any suggestions? :3
I am looking for a new fall lipstick. I am trying to decide between Venom and Shame from the UD Revolution line. I already own Buxom's Menace, so I'd like a color that isn't too similar to that lipstick. I am light with pink undertones.
