I am planning to give my mother and sister night time Korean skin care ritual sets for Christmas. I bought towelettes, toner, the Amore Pacific exfoliator, and Lancome Energie de Vie essence. I am planning to give them gift certificates to pick out their own serum. I assume they already have a water-based cleanser and moisturizer. Can anyone recommend a guide for me to include? (I still haven't figured out whether to put sunscreen or Philosophy Total Matteness on first!)
Hello! I am 27, and have oily/combination/sensitive skin that is very acne prone. I get breakouts all over the face, but especially on the cheeks and chin area. (I've been dealing with acne for over 12+ yrs). I am looking to purchase a Clarisonic device, and wasn't sure which one to get. Should I get the Mia1 or Mia 2? (Is there a huge difference between the delicate/universal speed setting? Thank you!
I am currently in my 3rd month of Accutane. I am almost done with my Boscia Makeup Breakup Oil. I saw that Murad had something similar. For those that have used both which one do you prefer? The Boscia one hasn't irritated my skin so not sure if the Murad one would. To remove my makeup or just clean my face I first use a makeup wipe to remove the initial layer and then to get in deeper I use the Bosica breakup oil.
Happy Sunday all! I currently wear BB's Creamy Concealor Kit in Warm Beige. I'm looking at purchasing her under eye corrector...I have some dark circles...they're not terribly pronounced, but even under concealor they are visible. I have come to understand( Tx to BT!!) that a peach-ish color is good to offset the color of circles; mine are blueish. Any suggestions as to what shade to try? There's a light peach, and a peach amongst other colors. I would obviously be using this prior to concealor....Anyone used it, heard about it, thoughts? I'm open to other brands/suggestions as well. TX so much for your time! ~KAM
You see I don't have fair or medium skin,it looks like olive skin only lighter (in the winter,in the summer it turns more medium) I don't burn,freckle,or peel,and I'm really struggling to find foundation/bb cream/powder that will match,everything looks cakes if I get a product that's too light,and It doesn't look natural if I grab something darker. If anyone could help that would be great!
Hey everyone! I got color matched in store. I'm wearing NARS Sheer Glow in Macao. It matches color wise, but for some reason it just doesn't look right. It looks too yellow and my skin looks sallow and flat. Then I tried MUFE in #75 and my skin looked red. How can I get my foundation to look better ? I need a foundation that can make my skin look brighter and to match my undertones. I have combination/dry skin and lots of dark spots btw. Thanks!
I want a holy grail lip primer. I want one that is not drying (already suffering with dry lips and winter has barely begun). I want it to stop lipstick feathering and bleeding and lock in color so I'm not reapplying every hour. I don't want it to be either slippery nor drying. Is Guerlains Kiss Kiss worth a shot?
I have dark circles under, around, in between my eyes. Legitimate, unrelated to sleep, dark circles. If I wear eyeshadow I look like I've been punched in the eyes. I've tried Lemonade, Fake-up, Smashbox under-eye brightener... the problems is that it's not just under. It's all around. I'm fair-medium skin, late 30's, very few fine lines (I don't suntan) with dark hair and hazel eyes. And, to boot, I get eczema under my eyes. HELP ME. Seriously, I'm looking for products, colours, all around eye suggestions. This image has not been edited. This is my dark circle problem....
Ok so this morning I got a emails saying the product I used to do my eye brows isn't going to make any more of it.... So I was wonder if anyone knew what other products I could use for my eye brows.. I want to get my eye brows like the one in the picture. What would I need to do them?? ike this!!
I am 43 and a fair skinned caucasian. I have hereditary dark circles under my eyes (seriously - they are there in pictures when I was 3) made worse by allergies. My skin is dry, starting to show a little age around the eyes and top top it off I get eczema around my eyes from time to time. I am looking for a concealer that will help masque these dark bags. But at the same time not be dry or accentuate the line below my eyes. Anything I have to set with powder is also a problem as they all instantly look cakey. I feel like I have tried everything! Cle de Peu (both matching shade and a honey to counteract the blue). Settles into lines and looks heavy. Amazing Concealer. Same as above - looks like paste. Make up Forever. Did nothing. Trish McEvoy Under eye brightener (which I like but still doesn't quite cover enough). Bobbi Brown Corrector and Concealers. Fine but not enough coverage for the effort. Touche Eclat (A joke for models who sleep 10 hours a day :-) Laura Mercier - way too dry and mixed with moisture doesn't cover Benefit - Erase Paste and Boing all trigger allergies and eczema attacks - cannot use this line. So - is there a great mystery product out there I haven't tried? Im not expecting a miracle and for them to vanish without looking like I am wearing a mask, but something to minimize would be great. Or am I stuck just buying bigger glasses and hiding behind them?
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!
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?
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...
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!
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?
I am almost 50, I have been having problems with breakouts and black heads. I also need a make up that will cover sun spots and blemish scars, but still look a little natural. I am a cancer survivor and the chemo really messed with my skin. Thanks in advance
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
After hearing many success stories, I want to include some retinol products in my skin care routine. I researched a little and came to know that Retinol can be obtained from both animal and plant sources.Is there any way to know which brands use plant based/ vegan retinol in their products. Thankyou
