Natural Lipstick
Hi all!  I am using color shade 4Y05 for foundation and dye my hair blonde.  I am looking for natural looking lipstick but that doesn't have so much gloss so that when wind blows my hair doesn't get stuck to my lips.  I was looking for something light pinkish or even nude, but that looks natural and pretty.  Any and all suggestions would be great!  Thanks.

Allergic Reaction
I started using 3 new products for about the past couple days. But last night I went to bed with my eyes red and I thought that was weird. This morning, I woke up with my eyes swollen. I've been using fresh soy cleanser and floral toner then moisturized with clinque dramatically different lotion for the past couple days morning and night. My eyes doesn't hurt or itchy.But I still don't know the cause of my problem. What do I do?   ps. I'm visiting my dad in Seattle right now, so I can't go to the doctors

My eyebrows are falling out when I use pomade on them.
I started using the Anastasia Dip Brow pomade about 3 months ago. It makes my eyebrows look amazing!! Unfortunately I have been loosing a lot of eyebrow hair! My eyebrows were once very thick and now are very sparse and have some empty spots. Every time I wipe off my eyebrow makeup I can see the hairs coming off. I have stopped using it because I might be allergic to something in it. I also tried a powder after, but it was a cheap brand and I had 1-2 hairs falling out but nothing compared to the pomade.   Is there any eyebrow product that you recommend, maybe that has few ingredients? Maybe something for sensitive skin? (not that I have sensitive skin but I'm worried about my brows) I especially need to start coloring in my eyebrows now that they are sparse. Help!!!

Under eye concealer
It's just so hard for me to find a good concealer to cover dark circle under my eyes. I tried Bobbi Brown corrector and concealer, but it didn't work out well, it made my under eye cakey, and it didn't stay until the end of the day; after few hours, I look like a panda already. But, warm beige is perfect shade for me. Nars don't have any color that fit my skin, so it just look so unnatural.

Hey ladies, recently I was hiking and ran into a small limb that scratched my face pretty badly. It healed up but I am now left with a small red line scar. I have been using sunscreen daily but its not helping much. Are there any products you recommend to make this scar go away faster? Thank you!

Very full coverage liquid foundation for combo light skin with pink undertones?
Hi! I'm looking for a *very* full coverage liquid foundation for my light skin with pink undertones. I have mostly oily skin but with dry patches from acne medication, even with moisturizer. My acne is unfortunately quite bad right now, so a lot of coverage is a must! My skin is a pretty standard "light" -- not pale or porcelain, not light-medium. The pink undertones are pretty strong so a lot of foundation looks yellow on me, even neutral tones.   Estee Lauder Double Wear was pretty good, but I couldn't find a shade match, and boy did I try! Kat von D was too drying and pasty. I use Tarte Amazonian Clay right now, but I'm looking for more coverage. MUFE didn't work out, but I can't remember why...    I'm going to Sephora to look at Dermablend Cover Creme and CoverFX, but I was wondering if anyone had any more ideas, especially for pink-based foundations. Much thanks!

Exfoliator for oily and acne-prone skin
Hello beauties,   I'm now in my late 30s, and I recently read the importance of exfoliating our face (for various reasons).  In the past, whenever I would exfoliate, my face would end up breaking out.  I have oily skin, and unfortunately, it's also acne-prone.  One of my friends uses Kate Somerville exfoliator (the one formulated for acne-prone skin), and she recommended this for me as well.  Does anyone reading this message happen to use this product?  If so, would you recommend it?  If not, I would appreciate recommendations.  After reading reviews, I tend to become overwhelmed with so many choices.  Thank you in advance!   With all best wishes, Daskala

I am in need of a really good product that dissolves blackheads!
Can any one recommend a product that will really dissolve blackheads?  I have heard of this type of product but can not find one that actually states on the package that it does dissolve blackheads! I have tried one recommended cleanser, Boscia Black Cleanser, but it did not get rid of the blackheads...it was very drying as well! I do understand that with any kind of blemish product that there will be some amount of drying. I have tried a few other cleansers and exfoliating products with only a little bit of luck in getting rid of my blackheads...but I really want to get rid of them all!  I have had them most of my life, they are not bad, just enough to be annoying to me!  If any one can recommend a really good product it would really be appreciated!  I even have a Clairsonic but some just won't go away! Thanks every one!
