So I was in a store the other week and I waited over an hour for someone to help color match me and no one was available. I left after waiting for so long. In the summer I wore Smashbox Studio Skin 15 hour wear foundation in 2.4. I wanted to try the new Anatasia Stick Foundation and what shade would you think I would be?   I was debating between that stick foundation and clinique's. I have used Bobbi brown's but it was a bit too thick and light for me.   Thank you!!! 
Hey all,   I was looking for a lip liner to go with ABH Pure Hollywood liquid lipstick.  I'm really bad at these things...   Also, if anyone could suggest nice lip shades for me that would be great! For reference, I have pale-ish skin with neutral to cool undertones, so corals/oranges/etc. generally DO NOT look good on me, at all.  I'm looking for cute light pinks (not barbie-doll pink) that would go with a more prominent eye look (so not dramatic lips).   Thanks!!
I have very dry skin and was looking around to see what people would recommend. I'm currently having issues where my make up sticks to dry patches. I've been fairly consistent with skincare and it seems to be working, but I feel like I need to add something else to help. The products I have been using are the FAB Ultra Repair Cream, Josie Maran Argan Oil, Ole Henrikson Truth Serum, the Origins Drink Up Sleep mask, Origins Rose Clay Retexurizing mask and the FAB Radiance Facial Pads. Any other recommendations would be appreciated!
Hi! I'm looking for some lipstick (long wearing) options to wear with a long coral pink bridesmaid dress! 
hello...   i was thinking of introducing retinol into my skin care routine... what is the best % to start off with? i have oily/combo skin… break out easily.   if i did introduce it in my routine…how would i use with respect to other products?   thanks
Not sure if I should get the light, medium(is suggested for redheads) or deep shade for the  Benefit Cosmetics Soft & Natural Brow Kit. My hair is not as blonde as the picture is (still a little highlighted)BUT as you can see my eyebrows are darker and very thin. I appreciate any feedback.
Hello beauty talk members, I see so many color threads here. I love to chat about luxury skincare products and procedures. I am addicted to trying new things and am always on the lookout for something new in skincare.    Have a favorite luxury brand or product?  Have a fav skin tool or treatment? Please share. Curious about botox? Spa treatments and peels? let's share our experiences here .   We can also post good GWP's, and specials.
Hi, I'm needing some help deciding what foundation to buy.  Lily Lolo Mineral was my go to foundation because it has been the only foundation powder/BB cream didn't cause my sensitive, breakout prone, dry patch prone skin to freak out with itching/redness, acne, and oily/rough patches (yeah, I get both at once when I have a reaction: usually oily redness on the forehead/nose, itchy dry on my cheeks, and cystic acne on my chin/jawline; it's a bummer), but their customer service finally drove me away.  Before that I used ColorScience, which was good but after a few years it started to cause a reaction.  I'm very outdoorsy, so I have to have SPF (but can only tolerate zinc and titanium, the other stuff causes a horrible rash) -- and have to battle super dry skin in the winter and sweaty/oily in the summer (which means different foundation formulations usually), and my skin is very light in the winter but really tans quite darkly in the summer.  So, I also have trouble with getting a correct match (I mixed medium neutral with light olive tones and that seemed to work well -- but that means I have to buy at least 4 foundations: one combo for the winter, one for the summer -- and I'd like to not have to buy that much foundation). I have a hard time with foundation, as you can see! I love the customer service at Sephora, and so far am in love with your cleansing waters/milk (thus far they have been very good to my skin) so if you have any products that might work for me please let me know!
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. 
I'm looking for a new primer to help with my uneven skin tone,which is not bad, I would just prefer my skin to be all one color lol.   So any recommendations on what to use? I have combination skin so nothing too oily or too matte
As a teenage girl who is completely obsessed with makeup, I have recently gotten into the Too Faced palettes. After purchasing the sweet peach palette I really want to try out the chocolate bar palettes but I'm not sure which would suit my skin tone well. I have warm toned skin with yellow/golden undertones, I can't decide which would look good with my complexion.   What do you think semi-sweet or original chocolate bar?
I just recently bought the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer and it doesn't conceal my dark under eye circles. Also it looks dry and crepey under my eyes. What should I do? I might return it and buy another concealer from Sephora but I need recommendations. Do I need a colour corrector?
Hello guys, somebody please explain to me the difference of the two. I'm planning to buy one of those. Which one should I get? Thank you!
hello.. i recently purchased Murad Complete Reform with Glyco Firming Complex and Caudalie's Polyphenol C15 Overnight Detox Oil...   i was told not to use these 2 together because the oil can reduce the efficacy of the Murad product. is this true? if not.. how would i layer them?   Day: i have oily/combo skin and easily can break out..  i wash my face with Murad's Time Release Acne Cleanser i tone with Sunday Riley's Martian toner i then use the Ole Henriksen's truth serum(orange) then i would moisturize with Lancome Bienfait Pure Focus Matifying Moisturizing Lotion followed with Murad's Invislblur Perfecting shield sunscreen…. and follow with rest of my make up.   Night: i wash with Murads cleanser then i would use Peter Thomas Roth Wrinkle X peel pads (every night)..wash off after 3 minutes tone with Sunday Riley's Martian toner use the Murad's Complete Reform use the Caudalie c15 and then moisturize with the new Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud cream   my extras include: twice a week with Murad's aha/bha exfoliating cleanser just bought the Herbivore Blue Tansy aha+bha Resurfacing  Clarity mask..which would be twice a week considering the Murad's IntensiveC Radiance Peel once a week with Origins charcoal mask   i know this is a loaded email but i could really use some help… I'm basically looking for something that will even out skin tone, lessen break outs and clean out pores … give me radiance and not have dull looking skin.     should i introduce retinol? if so.. which one? i tried Philosophy's Help Me and hated it..broke me out and way too heavy and oily for my already oily skin.   please and thank you .. look forward in hearing from you,   Anna      
I have dark circles and wrinkles under my eyes. The eye creams I've tried either make my eyes itchy or cause milia. Where do I start looking for something new? They can be so expensive I don't want to try it and have the same issues.
I don't understand Lancome's shade range. I have yellow undertones, not orange and a good color match for me is makeup forever ultra hd in 127. I also use BECCA's ultimate complexion creme in the shade nude. I have medium-light tan skin! I've seen swatches of 320 W Bisque and it looks really dark, so I'm not particularly interested in that shade for myself
I wear my sunscreen from Paula's Choice on mornings and on afternoons before I leave the office. I live in the Caribbean so the weather is generally sunny and around 33 degrees celcius everyday. My face especially has darkened compared to the rest of my body. I am a medium tan shade with yellow undertones and my face has now become brown toned so when I apply foundation there is a different tone on my face from from neck and body. How can I lighten my face once again? Are there any products I can use that do not contain Hydroquinone?
Hello!   I am helping my mom find a new foundation.  She has fair skin and is in her 50s.  Her favorite foundation was the Stila Illuminating Foundation in the shade 20 watts (discontinued!!).  She is looking for a foundation that is medium coverage, but is illuminating and brightening.  She has combination skin, currently more on the dry side due to the cold weather.     Last time she went foundation shopping, she picked up Clinque Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer in shade 1 Linen- but she doesn't love it.     Have you tried anything that you like or recommend?  Thank you!
I am trying to find the best match to the Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Illume.
I have rosacea and would like a foundation that covers this, but doesn't look caked on.  I currently use Clinique Redness Solution, but was looking for something different.  Any suggestions?
Hi, I have been wondering if the Sephora Play Box will be available to Canadians anytime in the future? I can see it doing well here and would love to subscribe myself. Thanks!
I have dark circles and bags under my eyes that I have had for as long as I can remember. Have yet to find something that works. What would you recommend to help that? Also need something affordable but works. Thanks.
I am currently new to makeup, but it doesn't turn out very well. I have been using drugstore products mostly to see how my skin reacts to certain products. I use liquid foundation with powder for my contour, but it is always cakey. Any suggestions?
I have oily skin(along with good size pores lol) and I was wondering which one of these would work better: Milk Makeup Blur Stick or Estee Edit Pore Vanishing Stick?? I currently use Benefit matte Porefecting primer and felt like trying something new. Taking recommendations also if none of the above work for oily skin! Thanks!
How do I choose which Organic / All-natural skin and hair care line is best for me? Any recommendations?
I've been using the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Ginger. However when I take photos with the flash on, the concealer shows up in spots on my face in the photo. What should I do?
