Which eye cream is better for dark circle reduction?
So I am torn between these two and don't know which one I should get. I have dark circles and want to minimize them (not light reflecting particles but actually lighten them up a bit) and I have sensitive skin. I'm in my 20s.   The two products are the Sephora Collection Age Defy Eye Cream and First Aid Beauty 5 in 1 Eye Cream.   What do y'all think?   Thanks!! <3

Saw Wayne Goss rave about this MUFE Primer!
http://www.makeupforever.com/int/en-int/make-up/fa ce/primer/step1   Is that the same primer as the MUFE HD Microperfecting Primer that we already have in the states?    http://www.sephora.com/hd-microperfecting-primer-P 217906?skuId=1097153   Even tho the one Wayne showed is in a different tube and is called Step 1 Equalizer it seems to have the same shades and descriptions as the original primer. Just curious!

Professional Skin Care Reviews besides Paula's Choice?
I have been under a dermatologists care all my life and have highly reactive sensitive skin and have to be really careful as to what I use. I am completely dependent on Paula's Choice and I won't use anything that doesn't get a BEST review from her site. She's never done me wrong as my skin is in excellent condition.    However I am still a beauty junkie and like to try new products sometimes and it does take a while for her to get new products reviewed and she also can't get everything.    Does anyone know of another website that does in depth product reviews?    I need to to replace my Boscia night cream that just ran out. I love it, it's worked flawlessly for me but I'm itching to try something new.

Lip Pencil- Full Lips?
I've heard using a nude color or shimmer lip pencil could make your lips bigger. Anyone else heard this or have any recommendations?   I've tried color lip pencils in the past and cant seem to either patch the lip pencil color to lipstick or the pencil line looks obvious.

MAC NW 48 to Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation!
Hello!   I've heard a lot of great things about the Lock-it Tattoo foundation by Kat Von D and am DYING to try it out!   I'm an NW 48 in Studio Fix Fluid by MAC and Cappacino in Revlon ColorStay and would like to try the Kat Von D Lock-it Tattoo Foundation, but the Sephora closest to me doesn't have all of the color options offered online. I tried a few of the colors and they didn't match very well. Don't know what they were, but I'm hoping there's a diverse enough selection to match my skin tone! Does anyone know what my color match would likely be in this foundation?

Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide Foundation SHADE

Laura Mercier color equivalence- Mineral Powder vs. LM Smooth Finish Foundation Powder
Hi there!   I am looking to try the LM Smooth Finish Foundation Powder but am unsure what color to use. I currently use the Natural Beige in the mineral powder which I find to be just a bit too light as well as the St. Moritz in the tinted moisturizer. There seem to be so many shades listed as Medium with yellow undertones and wasn't sure which would be best.   Thanks!  Aschac

Help = all Plum lipsticks turns hot pink
Every plum lipstick I try turns hot pink - instantly! Every one of them! I'm hazel eyes, fair peachy skin, freckles, strawberry blonde. Does the orange in my skin cancel out the blue in the plum? How do I get plum to look plum on me? I've tried: lip liner with lipstick over it, lip primer, foundation, two plums together. No luck. Help?????

Allergic to Quaternium-15
I have been using Sephora's service for many years! I love the ease to which I can order, the variety and how quickly my products get to me. I've been having a rash on my face for the last 4 years and after 4 years of testing, trying difference creams, meds, biopsy, visits to the dermatologist, I finally saw an Allergist, where I tested allergic to Quaternium-15. It's a commonly (ugh!) used ingredient in most personal care items. Does Sephora or any of the brands you carry, indicate they are free of Quaternium-15 or it's derivitives (such as Formaldehyde, Bronopol, Diazolidinyl urea? Thank you.

Nars Tinted Moisturizer Shade
I just went to Sephora today and purchased the Nars tinted moisturizer in Groenland.  The SA matched me to light 3 which is Groenland.  It looked good in the store.  It still seems ok, but when I got home I read online that that shade is more pinky-peachy and I am totally yellow undertone. I still think it looks good, I tend to look a bit beigy now.   My shade match would be St. Moritz.  Should I just leave well enough alone, or go back and switch.  I know I can try it and they take returns, but i feel guilty returning something I opened.  I was planning on using this under my bare minerals which I use in the light shade.  (in summer i am golden medium) for shade reference.

Compact for touch up with YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat
I need to pick up a compact for my mom who wears YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat in Beige Rose 40.     What would you recommend both for powder to set it with (loose powder?) of a morning and for a compact for touch up on the go?  For her, I'm guessing a compact for touch up is the way to go because it is a lot easier to safely transport in a purse.

Good foundation
Hi, i am in need of a GOOD foundation and am not opposed to trying a high end brand. I currently use the Maybelline FIT ME liquid foundation in number 225... This foundation settles into my fine lines and this is bothersome to me. I am 34, Italian and live in sunny Florida. I take good care of my skin but obviously have natural wrinkles. :-) any suggestions of what type of foundation would be good for me to use and what would be close to the FIT ME 225 that I currently use now.

How can I incorporate strivectin-sd intensive concentrate to my evening beauty routine ???
  Hi ! Just started a new beauty routine this past Thursday which includes the following:   Morning : Origins checks and balance frothy face wash with my boscia sponge (the pink one) Origins plantscription Origins ginzing refreshing eye cream Oririns ginzing energy boosting moisturizer   Evening : Philosophy purity made simple with my boscia sponge Got 2 sample size of Algenist retinol serum (5ml each) which I use as my current night serum. Origins night-a-mins   Once-a-week : I'll use a mask ... I'm currently trying out different ones (Origins clear improvements and all 4 boscias). Really liked the black one from boscia, but I'll try the 4 others before making a decision,   What I would like to know is if I can incorporate Strivectin-SD Intensive concentrate for wrinkles and strech marks to my evening routine. The reason I'm asking is that I just remembered I had a full bottle of this which I got as a present from my boyfriend during my pregnancy to prevent strechmarks and I didn't use it because we were told not to by our Dr. I know I can also use this cream for wrinkles. Can I incorporate this in my evening beauty routine and still use the Algenist serum, or should I stop using the Algenist serum and use plantscription origins serum instead? (I would only use Strivectin on my wrinkles (forehead & crow's feet).   Hope someone can help,   Thanks,
