Anyone tried Kevyn Aucoin face primer or skin fluid foundation? color selection help??
I'm really interested in Kevyn Aucoin the primed skin developer (normal to dry / normal to oily) and the sensual skin fluid foundation at the moment and wonder if anyone tried either of them. I googled and searched reviews on YouTube and IG, yet I couldn't find much.   From what I've found so far, most of them raved about the primer, saying it's the best they ever and very hydrating ;and Wayne goss loved the fluid foundation and some said it's better than Armani Maestro, but some others also pointed that it tends to sink in pores and fine lines. Color selection is also a very tricky matter with it. I found the swatch photo from camera ready site and I'm even more confused and strongly feel that the site made a mistake switching sf02 and sf03 marks. I'm around NC15-20 for MAC, 115 for MUFE HD, 10 ivory for Dior, Mont Blanc for NARS and 2 for Armani. I usually go for the lightest or second lightest shade in any foundation line in the market, but Kevyn Aucoin's products seem like they have the palest fair shade, even lighter than NARS Siberia! (I have the sensual skin enhancer in sx05 and it works and light enough for me.) I don't think sf02 will work for me, probably too light, so I have to go with either sf03 or even sf05? Need help here..😒   I'm also considering to get the celestial Skin liquid lightening since I'm about to finish my Dior glow maximizer. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't hate it anyway but hesitant to buy between KA and Becca liquid shimmering skin perfector in Moonstone. Anybody has both of them??   I would appreciate any kind of suggestion, reference and help. Thanks in advance😘

Recommendations for under-eye wrinkles
Hello, I'm 34 with fairly normal skin. It used to be oily but has changed in past few years to normal (and VERY slightly sensitive, though not enough to really be a concern.) What I'm looking for is something to address my under-eye wrinkles which have developed in the past year. I've had forehead wrinkles for quite some time but recently saw lines looking like crows feet and some wrinkling that goes from under eye are to top of cheeks. It's kind of hard to explain, sorry! I also have a lot of dark spots from sun damage. I have used retinols and glycolic acids on & off infrequently over the past 10 years, as well as light moisturizers. What I've used so far in the past 2 years to address my current issues have not worked well: Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu brightening mask (great hydration but did nothing for my dark spots and wrinkles) Philosophy renewed hope in a jar: did not minimize wrinkles at all, Ole Henriksen 3 little wonders: making my under eye area VERY dry and seeming to deepen the wrinkles there. Long story short, I need something to hydrate my under-eye area and give me anti-aging benefits, and would love a multi-tasking product for my dark spots as well. Any suggestions are welcome and thank you so much for reading my long post!

Eyeshadow & liner recommendations
Change to Sunday Riley "Start Over" Packaging, Formula?
I just received my order of Sunday Riley's "Start Over" eye treatment. I've used the product before and my last bottle reads "Active Eye Cream" but this new one reads "Active Eye Gel Cream."  Does anyone know if this is the same product? Have they changed the formula? The packaging is different from my old one (bought in January) so I was wondering if it is the same.  Thanks!

Smashbox eye shape recmmendations
Ok, so I have been looking around at new ideas for eye makeup When googling, I came across the smashbox eye shape recommendations, which seem pretty popular. I had always believed my eyes were round, so I tried their round recommendations. I got a bit frustrated since these recommendations are clearly for people who do NOT have prominent lids (I have prominent lids). Everything is VERY light with little eyeliner, and I was looking washed out. Last night I came across the video they have for determining eye shape and now they say I have one almond eye and one downturned eye. Thinking that the downturned eye needs the most help I went with those recommendations for day, but the wash out issue is way worse, since in their opinion people with downturned lids should use even less liner. Has anyone else had this issue? When I look at the videos, the concepts seem great, but in real life it just doesn't seem to work.

What skincare products would you recommend using to help combat the flaky skin caused by the Retin A Micro 0.08% Gel?

Morning Routine: Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Foaming Face Wash Simple Toner Onexton Neutrogena Healthy Skin Moisturizer spf 50 Night Routine: Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Foaming Face Wash Simple Toner Retin A Micro 0.08% Gel (After 20 min Every Other Night until May) Cerave Pm Moisturizer (45 min after Retin A)   ...

HELP YSL Matt and Radiance Pressed Powder
I was in search of a great setting powder and I always do my research. I ended up buying the YSL Matte and Radiance Pressed Powder. I have used it twice and I don't see a big difference after applying it and definitely not in keeping me matte. It was my high end splurge and I am disappointed. Has anyone tried it and have any suggestions of how to use it? I tried it with the puff that comes with it and a powder brush. I kind of pat it on after foundation.

Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X vs Silk'n Flash&Goβ„’ Freedomβ„’ Hair Removal?
I'm interested in purchasing one of these devices. But I'm stuck on which one to buy. My goal is to use it on my legs, armpits and arms. I hear the Tria is small and takes more time to do larger areas, and that the charge only lasts 40 minutes. Though I hear the device works better in terms of hair removal. Also I hear the Silk'n one is more ideal for larger areas since it's bigger but it requires a longer time period to yield results. I'd like to hear the opinions and views of others in terms of which device is better. And if there are any cons in either or, whether it's a risk or simply a flaw that might not make it as ideal as one would like. Thanks in advance.

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.
