I match perfectly with BareMineral Bareskin #3 Linen and Cover FX 30 but when i looked for a pick for baremineral original foundation powder it was Medium Beige here. When I went to the bare mineral site it was Fairly Light. I know my skin is neutral more then yellow from all the past foundations I've tried. I was just wondering if I should purchase the Medium Beige this site picked for me or the Fairly Light picked by BareMinerals site?
I have oily, acne prone, sensitive skin. I'm looking for a face serum that will work well with my skin type. Does anyone have any suggestions. Also in looking for a new moisturizer. I was looking at the Korres Pomegranate Balancing Gel-Cream Moisturizer. Had anyone tried it? What do you think about it?
Hi, anyone and everyone   I'm currently using this toner from Mary Kay and I've been using this product for a year now, but it's almost done. I LOVE this toner. However, I'm branching into new skin care to see what else works. I was wondering which toner is really good for dry skin but pimple concerns every now and then. I don't have an acne prone skin, but they occasionally pop up and I want a product to complement that issue. Can I please get a good recommendation? I'm willing to try anything. Thank you!!!
Color iq came up 1y06. My bobbi brown current shade warm beige puts me at 2y06. The Kat Von d light 49 looked good in store (maybe even a shade too light) but has darkened in the hours since and some places actually appear orange. Is this what people call oxidizing? Is there a fix for it or am I going to have to try a completely different formula? Thanks. 
I have really oily skin. It got worse when I moved from East Coast to California and it may be that California weather is so dry. I wake up in the morning my face is oil. I wash it and 1 hr later, my face is oil. I stopped using the oil sheets b/c i heard it can produce more. I have a ton of acne & scars at the moment. I'm deciding whether to start Accutane. If anyone has any opinions on it, please let me know. I am still learning what works best for my skin, but i really want to give up. I feel that I'm not doing something correctly and maybe Accutane can fix it? I have used neutrogena oil-free sensitive skin moisturizer before and it worked. The combination skin one made my face really oily. I use Murad skin perfecting lotion. It makes it feel non-greasy. This is my regimen right now. Please help me correct what I've been doing wrong: 1)cleanser: (dermatologist's personal brand contains 2% glycolic & 2% salicylic acid) & cetaphil daily facial cleanser (i heard cetaphil dries out skin...) 2) toner: Lancome clarifying exfoliating toner & BioSpecific rehydration toning water mist 3) apply my prescibed acne topicals 4) moisturizer: murad skin perfecting 5) spf 15 oil free sunscreen make up: -lancome regenergie lift makeup foundation - MAC mineralize skin finish natural (I use a sponge to apply. how often should i change it?) I want to try the gel moisturizers though. Any recommendations? Also I want to try the Shiseido Pureness balancing softener. I heard it will allow the moisturizer to go more deeply into the skin? Please advise me. Thank you   Also I might be moving back to the east coast, will my skin be affected by the weather so what if everything changes?
A little background: Skin: Oily Color: around ivory, i live in San Diego so the sun is always shining on the face. I do have acne, It hasnt been bad for the past 5 months until recently i switched up my cleaning routine, I am currently in the process of getting a clear face with my old products. My question is, What foundation do i use!? I have been a makeup lover forever and i know how to paint my face pretty darn well. But its always a hit and miss when it comes to foundation. Recently i went and picked up Makeup Forever Mat velvet + matifying foundation and i hate it. After an hour i feel like the foundation makes me oily. I use true match and that lasts at least 5 hours, so it has to be the foundation. The primer i use is the one from Hour Glass and i absolutely love it! I was looking at the new YSL foundation but its so expensive so i am trying to find a bit cheaper foundation before i fall in love with something that will break my bank every few months.....The foundation has to be full coverage. any suggestions please?!!

My fav Lancome waterproof mascara failed me today when I went to raging waters. All the mascara smudged to the bottom of my eyes and looked horrible (I didnt notice until 2 hrs later). Can someone recommend me a "real" waterproof mascara that does not budge even with a makeup remover- thanks.
I have the most oiliest skin on earth.  Nothing seems to work for me.  Currently I am using Becca's Ever Matte Primer, followed with Tarte's 12 hour amazonian clay, with tarte concealer, and cover fx pressed powder to set and set it with the Urban Decay 12 hour all nighter setting spray.  By 11 am my skin is beginning to look greasy, and by 4 my makeup looks as if it is melting off my face.   I use Algenist pore minimizing moisturizer, Ole Heriksons Ultimate Eye lift cream and cleanse morning and night using my clarisonic mia 2 with philosophy purity.     I have tried smash box primers, make up forever matte foundation, kat von d's lock it foundation, smash box 12 hour foundation, basically it seems like everything!    What is a good remedy for this? I have rosacea, and need coverage because of my combination skin (extremely oily t zone, cheeks, but dry in certain areas).  I want a good foundation that can go the distance and not add to my already oily skin.  PLEASE HELP!!!  
Hey everyone i am in desperate need of help!!! I have oily eye area and no matter what i do my eye liner ends up in my under eye area even when i don't put eyeliner on my lower lash line, i have bought "smudge proof liner" water proof liner and mascara thinking that my mascara that i put on on my lower lashes rub off on my skin, i just don't know what to do any more, can someone please help me!!!
I want to use a (or a few) Boscia skin cleaners/moisturizers, since I've heard great things about them from friends and reviews, but I don't know the differences between all the (cleansers etc.) products. What is best for a not-so-oily face? Do you have an opinion on any? Any answers are greatly appreciated, thank you.
I tried a sample of the cool honey and it matched my skin. Problem cool honey is out of stock. The only option is warm honey right now. I need foundation asap. I need to know the difference between the warm and cool honey. Help
Is there anything at sephora that is good for the skin + a makeup item
Can someone please tell me if the Vice LTD will become available for everyone at some point? Thanks!!!!!
I'm 66 yrs. old....I have some gray. I've had my hair colored for years. My hair is thin.  I like a lustrous look and not dry. Would Bumble and Bumble Gentle Shampoo and Bumble and Bumble super rich conditioner be a good choice my hair. Hair color has high and low lights throughout and is shoulder length.
went to purchase bare minerals customizable starter kit that includes choice of foundation for 49.00 for entire kit. Product states the price would adjust at checkout. However it only adjusted 14.00 so the total price for kit was over 60.00 not 49.00. Am I doing something wrong?
If Sephora doesn't carry the "Mineral" primer is there another primer that is close?
I have battled severe acne for many years and I finally have it under control. However now I have hyper-pigmentation and some pretty deep acne scars. I have used Dr Brandt's exfoliator and it has been a miracle worker for the hyper-pigmentation, however I'm in search of a product or products that can help with the scarring. I also have a lot of overall redness, especially around the eyes. I guess just looking for something to help take care of the scarring and overall brightening. Anything suggestions are helpful! 
So I used the clarisonic for about a month with the sensitive brush head and after two weeks of use developed pimples and bumps in place on my face I've never had them before. After there weeks I had more so I decided to purchase the delicate brush head after reading many good reviews. At this point I had weird itchy under the skin bumps. Almost like a rash. By week 4 I couldn't take it anymore so I stopped using the clarisonic. It's been about two days since then so when will my skin return back to normal? Has anyone else experienced this?

In search of a setting power that doesn't not wash you out. I am currently using dermablend white setting powder and it's great because  it leaves skin matte, however I notice that in pictures my face looks really pale and washed out. Any recommendations??
I'm going to NC in two weeks and would like to pick a few items up. I'm wondering if there is any way to get points from those purchases?

Hi there -   I'm a huge consumer of mascara and eyeliner. I used to have a great face wash that could handle the chore of removing my eye makeup as well as clean my face, but it was discontinued.   I want one product - a face wash - that can do the trick. I don't want to use eye makeup remover after I wash my face.    Any thoughts?
I'm looking for a foundation like Clarins "Instant Smooth Foundation" which isn't made anymore.  Anything similar out there?
I have oily skin, which is also very sensitive and dries out quickly, often leading to breakouts. I recently stopped all Acne/Blemish treatments and started using AmorePacific toner, cleanser and moisturiser to let my skin recover. It is much better (no breakouts for a month!), but I still have lots of blackheads and large pores. Is there a gentle serum or treatment that you could recommend? Thanks!
I need an eyeliner for my waterline that stays and doesn't smear. I heard great reviews about UD 24/7 and bought it but I'm slightly allergic to it so it actually makes my eyes water more. Please help, I've been through so many different eyeliners and I just want a decent one. 
Hi, I'm trying to find good skincare products for my mother. She is 53 years old, has ashy dry, sensitive skin, and has wrinkles forming all over her face, specifically around her eyes, forehead, and smile lines.
