Clogged Pores and Stress Acne
Hi! I actually do not have much experience with skin care routines and I would really appreciate some advice. There are so are so many suggestions and routines online that I never know quite what to do. Normally I have always just washed my face before bed to take off my makeup from the day and my skin has been clear. But recently I have started to get lots of clogged pores on my chin and forehead along with blackheads all over my nose and acne in my T-Zone as well as along my jaw line. I really want to get this all cleared up and would appreciate any advice on products and routines!

I have a hard time finding a blush that does not go orange on me. I am fair skin%2C burn easy%2C and brown hair.
I have not found a blush is some time , that I feel compliments my face. Every blush seems to pull orange tone on me and doesn't seem to compliment my irish fair skin.  I have tried NARS sin, Benefits DALLAS, MAC, Tarte matte bronzer as blush, and nothing seems to be the key color for me. I am fair skin, without make up have some redness, brown hair .  Most lipsticks I feel that look best on me are more of the neutral darker mauve/brown ones. Any suggestions?   Thanks you , Liz

Blotchy, uneven mess!
I'm in need of help! I recently used a facial hair removal cream to get rid of the peach fuzz on the sides of my face. My skin is not red, irritated, or burned; however, getting my foundation and blush to "stick" to these areas is a total nightmare. My foundation goes on much more "pale" in these areas than the rest of my face, and my blush/bronzer goes on all blotchy and uneven. The number of layers that I apply does not make a difference, it actually seems to make things worse. This is visibly obvious and really embarrassing! I use It Cosmetics full-coverage compact, if that makes a difference to anyone...ideas? Will this go away?

Perfume Help
Hii! Not sure if you remember, but Sephora carried the Salvatore Ferragamo's Incanto Charms perfume many many years ago.  That was when I first got hooked on the scent.  However, it has been discontinued for a long time and I've been getting my stock from amazon.   I do know that eventually Amazon will run out, so here's my question(s).   Does perfume expire?  It'd be great it it doesn't so I can stock up from amazon for life.. but   If it does really expire,  anyone know of this scent and know a similar perfume that resembles this scent?   Thanks!

Sunday Riley Luna Sleep Oil
Hello! I just had a simple question I am hoping one of you could answer, I recently was in the store and got a sample of the Sunday Riley Luna sleeping oil. I have never used it before, but in the little packet which you tear open, it feels like its powder and like.. little balls! and on the product information, its obviously an oil, So i'm confused as to how to use the sample, and I'm terrified to open the packet and like.. waste it, because I've wanted to try this brand for so long! and the directions on the packet are the same as for the product and I guarantee you this sample is like a powder not an oil,   Any help at all please! thank you!!

Anyone Allergic to Sunscreen????
So, I have not got an allergy test done, I know I should, but I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for sensitive skin and very pale......what product from Sephora best suits someone for sun protection on your face, with senstivities? Im talking face sunblock. I get a rash 1-2 days after, its usually flesh colored and bumpy, then dries up, and goes away in 2 weeks. This has also happened on my body as well.

Should you still use a serum when using a cc cream?
I have been using Drunk Elephant C-Firma in the morning under my Kat Von D lock it foundation and love it. I just bought the IT cosmetics CC plus cream because some mornings I don't have time to do a full face of foundation. I wasn't sure if its too much for my skin to use a the serum and the CC creams since CC's tend to have skincare ingredients in them as well. I'm 37 years old, with combo skin(but still very prone to breakouts, ugh!) so I always worry about doing something to mess up my skin. Please help. Thank you

Foundation HELP!!
So I've been using MAC foundation in the shade NC30 for years and its the perfect shade for me! However, I dont wish to use the brand anymore.   I then purchased Lancome Tein Idole Ultra 24h and loved it but the shade 03 wasn't matching my skin tone(it was lighter than the MAC) . What would be a good equivalent for the MAC NC30?

Need help! Substitute for TooFaced Tinted Beauty Balm
Hey guys!   I am a 6+ year addict to TooFaced Tinted Beauty Balm. I love the thick formula, the way it goes on, the shimmeryness behind it, everything. I use vanilla glow in winter and cream glow in summer, and in spring/fall mix both colors. Now that this product is discontinued, I am totally screwed and at a loss for what to buy.

Tarte Shape Tape - Worth the hype?
Hey guys! I'm a little late to the game with this product, but for a while I've been eyeing the Tarte Shape Tape trying to decide if I want it or not. I know it's not crazy expensive, but I was wondering if it's worth the hype. I don't have dark circles by any means, I will just put on a concealer (Lancome's waterproof concealer) one shade lighter than my skin tone to brighten up the area a little, but I don't have anything in that area that desperately needs covered. In fact, I use a light to medium coverage foundation and on days where I'm just doing foundation and some mascara I can easily get away with just patting my beauty blender over my under eyes and looking just fine without extra coverage. I think what's drawn me to the Shape Tape the most are the claims that it's crease proof. I'm skeptical about that, but I have a major problem with under eye creasing. What do you guys think, is it worth it for someone who doesn't really need high coverage concealer?
