Silicone
I have a sensitivity to skin clogging silicone (dimethicone, simethicone, all the "cones"), which manifests itself in cystic acne on this 60 year old face. Is there a product line that uses NO silicone? I spend so much time reading labels in the store that I alert store security! Help!

Clearing my acne up?
I am in desperate need to find a product to get rid of all this acne. I know a lot of it is stress related but I am uncertain of what will work. I've used Proactiv and it has helped but I am looking to see if something is better. I don't want to waste money on something that won't be effective. Any ideas?

VIB discount?
Just a quick question... I re-qualified for VIB around October 25-29. I don't remember the exact date. Sorry. Then around November 11 or so I became VIB Rouge. I was just wondering where my code is for my VIB 20% off that I usually get when I re-qualify. I also remember the girls telling me that I had the code but couldn't redeem it until the next time I came back. This was before the F&F sale. I just figured since I jumped from VIB to Rouge so quick that it got lost in the cosmetic world out there. I'm trying to check out online right now and was hoping if anyone can tell me how or where I can get my VIB code to apply to my shopping cart right now. So when I re-qualified for VIB, I never got any thing but when I got the Rouge, I did receive that little black Rouge back. Help please...

Lip liner suggestions
I am wondering what lip liner (Probably from NARS) would match a couple of shades from NARS Audacious line. I am looking for matches to Charlotte and Bette. They are relatively close to each other.    I have never used lip liner before, but I've been reading about how to get the most out of your lip color and get it to last longer. Everything I've read mentions using liner.   Thanks in advance!

Quesiton for MUFE FULL COVER CONCEALER :(
I am having hard time when blending the MUFE FULL CONCEALER when the climate turns cooler. I mean it work perfectly during the warmer months. It never break out on me and love the coverage, but it turn a bit cake-y or un-skin-like. Now, I have tried mix it with my Diorskin Star Foundation and the result does improved but it still not ideal. I am a brush person and I am just wondering does BeautyBlender would be the key here?

What shade am I in Tarte's Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation??!!? Help!
Hi everyone! I don't have a Sephora near me so I can only order online. I'm wondering what shade I would be in Tarte's Amazonian Clay 12-Hour foundation? Exactly how light is the lightest shade? The lightest shade in Smashbox 15 hour wear foundation is currently too dark for me. I don't really think I'm super porcelain but I'm definitely really light.   I have a cool tone to my skin, I usually wear silver jewelry and purple/silver eyeshadow compliments my skin well. However, when it comes to foundation I think I usually use like more yellow or neutral based foundations because even though I have a cool tone I have a pink tone and redness in my skin, and I feel like the yellow helps cancel it out.  But how yellow is the shade fair sand? Will it look too dark on me since I'm super light? Am I better off going with ivory? Thanks

Under eye product to treat bags, but not puffiness or dark cirlces
Hi everyone!   I am 30 years old and just now taking the time to really pay attention to my skin. So I'm learning it all from the beginning.   On a regular routine I wash my face with Fresh, and use a FAB moisturizer after. I also use a Supermud mask a couple times a week. This is all doing wonders for my skin...   ...but, my eyes still show my age. :-/   I don't have puffiness, or dark circles. I think my issue is called "under eye bags". It's just a deep circular crease from the corner of my eye that swoops away from my nose and back up toward the outer corner of my eye.   I've always worn glasses, which kind of hid this issue, but I just got contacts! I should feel like I look great without glasses, but I just want to hide behind them again so no one will see these lines.   Can anyone recommend a product, or type of product I can use for this? I am sort of overwhelmed by all the products on the Sephora search page, and I don't know if I need something to "tighten" or "cool" or "moisturize" or what.   Thanks for all your suggestions!

help?
On my online order I had ordered samples of the dermadoctor rd cream, Dr. Jart pore medic, and supermud clearing treatment but received the lancome liquid to powder makeup, phytospecific moisturizing styling cream, and the Dr. Jart pore medic. Is there some way I could get the two that I ordered and return these samples? And I have to say i'm quite upset because this is the first time I had bought anything from Sephora and I was looking forward to try the samples as well as what I had bought

HELP... I don't even know where to start...
So I started shopping at Sephora a months ago for hair care products only. Makeup has always intimidated me, and I grew up a major tomboy so I never saw a need for it. In fact, I only started wearing makeup about a year ago (I'm 23) and strictly only bought drug store products.   Now that I'm considered a "professional" in my field of work, I feel that my appearance should reflect that. I'm not saying that I don't "put myself together" before work, but I feel that I need to graduate from drug store to "grown up" makeup. Problem is, I have no idea where to start.   The makeup side of Sephora is so overwhelming and I don't have a clue what I'm doing. Concealer? What the heck is that. Why is that primer green? I'm completely lost. Even after doing tons of  research to see what I would need, I always find myself walking out empty handed. Hence, I've turned here.   What are some basic products that you feel every girl should own? My skin is extremely dry and I also have rosacea on my cheeks and my forehead which is something I've always been really self conscious about. Honestly, anything helps.   Thanks!!

Frangrance... discontinued?
Hey everybody, hope you are having a wonderful evening!   I was sitting in my room thinking about my cold (sick) and I remembered buying a scent or oil in the fragrance world of sephora that acted as a sort of aromatherapy.    Problem is I can't remember the brand name or anything, nor can I find where in my clutter that I managed to stash this fragrance.    I also think sephora may no longer cary this brand but I was hoping someone would remember the name of it.  They came as rollerball scents and were named certain numbers. There were a bunch of different numbers. One of them was for fatigue and another for energy, etc.    Hopefully someone knows what I am talking about!   Thanks!
