Hi there! I am interested in buying a Urban Decay setting spray but I can not decide which one would be the best for me. I have combination skin, so I am very dry in some areas and very oily in others. I also have break outs (cause I have awful skin) and sometimes the concealer wears off which I'd like to fix. I'm wondering what one would be the best fit for me?? Or are there any different setting sprays that would work better??
I'm in the market for a new essence. I need something that is hypoallergenic and won't break me out. I need something that does not have argan oil or rosemary essential oil in it, those ingredients break me out. I've been using the Body Shop Oils of Life Essence Lotion, and I love that it isn't heavy and that it's really light and absorbs well into my skin. I do however feel like it's too much oil for the oily areas of my skin.

I am trying out the Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)able Foundation and I cannot get it to apply smoothly. It comes out patchy and scaly looking. I have normal skin and can usually use any kind of foundation and any formula. I've tried water based and silicone based primers, no primer, with and without moisturizer and nothing helps. I have not tried the Marc Jacobs primer. Could it be that does the trick? I have only tried this with a brush since that was recommended. Would a Beauty Blender help? I really want this foundation to work because the coverage is insanely full, which I like. Has anyone else with my skin type had this problem?
Can anyone tell me their eyebrow tattoo experience ? I'm getting mine done during the summer by slightly tattooing because I don't want to go through the hassle of using pencil or powder (can't anyways because of sensitive eyes and too much money). Can I still a tinted brow gel like benefit's gimme brow in medium deep to look as natural as possible ?
Hello - I have acne prone skin and Laura Mercier has been good to my skin so far. I currently use the mineral powder in Natural Beige for everyday and use the liquid in butterscotch for going out. But I hate traveling with the massive mineral powder container. I want to try the Laura Mercier Mineral Pressed Powder mineral press powder what color do you think I would be? They don't have this in the store by me so. http://www.sephora.com/mineral-pressed-powder-spf- 15-P244913?keyword=LAURA%20MERCIER%20Mineral%20Pre ...
I have a few questions: 1. What is the Dior Airflash Foundation based on? Is it water-based, sulfur-based? 2. Do both the Foundation and it's primer have to have the same kind of base? (Ex: both are water-based for it too work well) 3. Is a lotion equivalent to a primer? Or will the lotion just not work at all..
Hi, I'm a total make-up noob, and I'm looking for a bb/cc-cream or a light coverage foundation that's easy yet good and natural looking... I have a medium skin tone with some yellow undertones I think (My mom is Indian and dad is Belgian haha) so I just need something that will match and not make my face a complete different color... I have a pretty clear skin, a few breakouts every now and then. And I have combination skin. Hope someone can help me haha
Hi there! Is there an up-to-date list of silicone-free sephora products? It's been asked before, but it doesn't look like there's ever been a comprehensive answer. I'm specifically looking for foundations, concealers and primers to try for my oh-so silicone-sensitive (dermatologist-tested) skin, and for others with the same sensitivities. Thanks!
hi , i am a 42 yearld old women with not many wrinkles , but would love to get a good cream or product for maybe a lift affect if possible. i know if i would find one it would be at sephoras . thanks cant wait to see result
Hi! I am 19 and am in my first year in college. Yes college has been stressful for me bc I am a biochemistry major that has to maintain a 3.6 GPA but ive dealt with school stress all my life so I dont think that would really play this significant of a factor. My hair used to be very thick curly auburn hair and now its thinning at my scalp and falling out CONSTANTLY. It used to take me approximately 2 hours to straighten my hair and now it takes me around 20 min. I try my best to avoid straightening and curling my hair and only do so maybe once a month or once every two months. I have always had healthy hair and IDK what to do. Clumps and clumps are falling out and my scalp is becoming so thin (that you can see through my hair to my scalp) its terrifying because I just turned 19. I use argan and Moroccan oil and use a moroccan oil based shampoo. I take a multi vitamin and just recently started taking biotin (trader joes brand). Please any help/tips/advice would be really appreciated! Thank you!
i'm looking to buy a foundation that won't settle into laugh lines or look too cakey. i think i have combination skin…. it's initially somewhat dry in the beginning of the day and gets super oily as the day goes on in addition to being acne prone. i'm torn between kat von d lock it foundation and Makeup forever matte velvet
I have been seriously trying to get into the contour world. I have been told before to use the NXY and I did not like it. So I've gave in and decided to either get the tarte contour pallet or the Kat Von D one. I need some pros and cons of each? (fair skin tone, combo skin type)
I have textured, uneven skin due to past acne. Its not too bad and dents aren't too deep but it is so annoying. My pores seem large too. What could I use to resurface my skin and get rid of this scarring?
I have just purchased the Fresh Seaberry face oil and the Fresh Lotus cream. I love them both!!! I would like to purchase a new cleanser, face scrub, moisturizer, face treatments, I just don't know where to begin. I have oily skin and sometimes have some dry spots. Any advice/Help would be greatly apprieciated. Thank you so much!!!
Just turned 30 and I know you should use a peel pad daily, and I've been told to use an exfoliator, should I alternate them? Or use the peel pad everyday and the exfoliator twice a week? I have flaky skin everyday, It's pretty smooth on most of my face but it's dry, flaky and acne/blackhead prone on my nose and chin. I'm also hoping to save some money because my regime is expensive and I think too complicated. Cleanse with Skyn Iceland Glacial Facewash Tone with Skyn Iceland Arctic Face Mist Peel with Skyn Iceland peel pads (sometimes daily, sometimes every couple of days) Treat with Ren Overnight Facial (usually on days I'm not using the peel pads as this helps replenish moisture) Serum with Murad (can't remember what it's called but it's supposed to help with hormonal breakouts) Moisturize with Ren Global Day Cream Indie Lee Blemish Treatment (it's the same as the Kate Somerville Eradikate). Things I don't want to change: my moisturizer (it's heavy but it's the only one that reduces the sensitivity of my skin and actually provides enough moisture, everything else I've tried from oil-free, to light moisturizers, to other heavy moisturizers and oils have not worked. My blemish treatment , which is a spot treatment I use at night and clears up my acne without drying up the rest of my face, and it works when nothing else has. My cleanser, it's a good buy, effective but not to drying, natural and is helping to balance my skin. Things I like but don't need or would like a cheaper alternative: the serum , I want something with Retinol that won't break the bank where a little goes a long way. The Ren Overnight resurfacing treatment , I love this but it's expensive and probably I don't need it, but it's nice to use once in a while when my skin is crazy dry. Things I need some tips on: the peel pads , these are a must-have but I don't know if I should switch to just an exfoliator when I haven't found them to be effective and I would like a cheaper alternative. Also, I would like good advice on a nice exfoliator with lactic/glycolic/aha acid or an enzyme exfoliator. I would like to simplify my routine if possible but have been struggling to find a way to do it, save some money but keep up with my skin feeling amazing (for the most part).
I am looking for a new skincare routine and would like to use the whole line. Im debating between FAB and Caudalie as I have sensitive skin. What do you guys recommend? I don't have any skin concerns besides pores that should be controlled with exfoliating I would appreciate suggestions!
I have super dry skin and have been looking for the perfect foundation that give light/medium coverage without clinging to dry patches and looking cakey? I prefer a natural finish and not too look *too*dewy. Thanks!
I have prom coming up in a week. My dress is navy blue. It has white, silver, a rustic gold, and turquoise beading on it. I'm not sure on what colors to choose for my eyeshadow or lipstick?? I have brown hair and brown eyes with a light to medium skin color. Help!
