Hello -   I am looking for a mascara that does not smudge or flake. I just returned Too Faced Lash Injection and Urban Decay Perversion. I exchanged it for Buxom lash mascara which I have on now and it smudged as well. I have Too Faced Better Than Sex and that smudge and flakes (although I love that mascara). Please help! Thank you    
I turn 26 next month and I have extremely sensitive skin (I was diagnosed in 2013 with a form of dermatitis). Basically if I put something on my skin or eat something wrong my body lets me know with-in 24 hours with hives and blisters. I have been using Origins face wash/Skin Care line, for several years now and am noticing that my skin is beginning to look rough and uneven. It feels really uneven too (feels like acne under my skin), my skin is also looking dull. I have had great luck with the Boscia line of products, I use the moisturizer under my make up and the make up break-up, cooling oil. Both work great, does Boscia have something I can use for on the days I have no make up on and just need a really good cleanser, especially one I can throw in my bag and wash my face with after I work out in between my classes?
does anyone know how I can get rid of white heads on my eyelids or near my eye? I really need help I think its from not taking my makeup off. white clogged bumps anyone have any suggestions?
I've heard from multiple sources that Sephora will take back ANY product (regardless of when you bought it) they still carry in stores! I'm not really concerned on wether i'll get my money back or i'll just get store credit but is this true?

  hi there, as you can see from the attached pic (yuk) I have very bad Melasma. I need help I'd finding a foundation that will cover this, but look natural. I have never had 'clear'  as I have freckles across my nose, but I also don't like the heavily made up look as it doesn't sit on my skin well. I have to wear SPF 50-100 (winter-summer) so my skin doesn't darken. I used Clinique Stay matte powder in Stay Honey, which is a little dark for me during the winter, but fine in the summer (it matches my neck colour). I've read about the MUFE colour pallete and using a peach shade to neutralise dark areas. Which number should I use?   i was colour matched by Boots ( avery large UK chemist, they have their own very good cosmetics ranges) In Boots No 7 Stay Perfect Foundation I am deeply 'honey' and 'wheat'   Unfortunately I cannot get samples of products here (Ireland) the dapartment stores don't really give them (Estée Lauder especially) I wasn't really impressed with the girl on the counter, the colour she applied was very yellow, and I looked jaundiced.    Can you guys help? I've seen so many videos on YouTube where girls have coverd very bad acne scars....   I dream of one day wearing blusher....but at the moment it just highlights my blotches on my cheeks :-(   Sad single and ugly :-(  Ruth  
I'm 21 and for the past two years I have experienced and still experiencing continuous breakouts. The healing process is very slow and I have scarring all over my chin and some on my left cheek. In the same time my skin is very sensitive and dry (most of the time red). For a month I've been using La Roche-Posay Effaclar DUO Acne Treatment but it stopped working and new breakouts start coming out. Can you help me recommending some products??
I'd say my skin is a bit dry after I wash my face with my face wash but then it gets oiler throughout the day. What type of moisturizer should I use? I was thinking of the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel from Clinique, but I'm not sure. 
I have been using Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation for the last couple of years.  I see that it has been discontinued/reformulated.  I need a suggestion for a new foundation.  I'm not interested in the new formulas as I've not seen too many positives about the product in comparison to the older version.  I have Rose Ivory & could go a tad lighter because I have to be very careful to make sure it is blended with  my neck.  I have fair skin with a pink undertone.
Hi there,   I need your advice! I have a very very very oily t-zone. I tried almost every face primer in the market and even mattifying lotions and it seems like it doesn't really work for me. I use MAC Studio Fix powder as my foundation everyday and gets oily in 45minutes! and when I am using a liquid foundation such as the Maybelline Matte and Poreless, I get oily in 30minutes! Soooo insane!   Also, I have oily eyebrows. I tried everything but it just gets shiny. Blotting papers are so expensive especially when a person use it frequently. For me, it's more embarrassing to have oily eyebrows than to have oily face because having oily eyebrows emphasizes sparseness and it's not natural looking.   Please help me. I'm 22 years old and just started using makeup.   Thank you!
Winter has take its toll on my face with so much redness on the cheeks.  Any suggestions on foundation and/or concealer?    All set with stuff to calm it down.     
After hearing a lot about them, I decided to finally try an AHA. I bought Paula's Choice 8% AHA after hearing rave reviews about it. It was great at first, I used it every night; however after a couple of weeks I noticed it started to burn certain parts of my face after applying, and it would also cause pimples and acne scarring those places. I decided to stop using the AHA and I think my skin is going back to normal... however now I do have some raised bumps where I did not before. So, are AHA's more harmful than not?

Oh I need this in my life!! When will this or will it be available at Sephora? 
I have NEVER had a problem with my skin being this red, and I have no idea what's causing it, so I'm kind of at a loss of what to do.   I need a cleanser that fights acne but isn't too intense and/or a primer that will reduce the redness in my face, but not suck out all the color (as most red reducing primers tend to do). Also, maybe something that helps brighten my skin? Is this a herculean task to ask of any product?    Any recommendations? With warmer weather on the horizon, I need something that's not going to oily and/or too moisturizing, but this is such a weird problem for me that I'm not equipped to deal.   Thanks team!
Hi,   I am wondering if you can mix skin care products - more specifically can I use the same cleanser and toner and use a different moisturizer and serum? 
I can't decide between buying the Tartelette pallete, the semi-sweet chocolate bar, or the original chocolate bar!! I love them all but cannot decide which to get! Any suggestions?
I have oily/ combination skin and due to the harsh anti acne products I have used it is dry and patchy and gross! I have been doing some research and it seems like my skin is extremely dehydrated. It seems like both Korres Wild Rose Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial and the Peter Thomas Roth VIZ 1000 75 percent Hyaluronic Acid Complex can help.. can I combine both at night? would just one work and if so which one?? Please HELP
I have dry acne prone skin but my face gets really red is there a BB cream or Tinted Moisturizer that I can just apply everyday and will give me  moisturize while not  breaking it out?
I am looking for something that will give light coverage throughout the day.  I don't often break out, and my current skin care regimen keeps my skin relatively normal throughout the day.  Sometimes, however, I get these random spots or splotches of irritation.  They usually go away (sometimes minutes, sometimes hours), but I am looking for something that will help minimize the appearance of these when they do occur.     Also, anything that sits too heavy on my skin will cause me to break out.  I am using the First Aid Beauty Facial Moisturizer, and this has been the only moisturizer I have been able to find that doesn't cause me to break out by the end of the day.
I went to a Sephora store to receive help picking a foundation. The associate told me to get Urban Decay Naked but I don't think it was a wise choice. It settles on my face extremely bad on my cheeks and upper lip. I have tried using a primer first and without but both ways settle on my face. What would be a good solution to make this foundation look better? I even purchases the brush that she recommended. I think she was just comfortable using that brand so that's what she suggested. Instead of asking enough questions to choose a good brand for my skin type.

hello sweethearts im still getting into make up and im not sure if im blending enough please help can someone give me tips for blending ?
Now that I am a senior citizen, I have very red eye lids. I use foundation but it doesn't reduce the redness enough. I have also tried concealer with little improvement.  Any suggestions?
Did anyone other than me get an email survey yesterday? It wanted to know about makeup buying habits and all of that and said that in exchange for completeing it i would get 100 points. Real or scam?
I need help finding a good, medium to full coverage concealer for spots and problem areas. I have very oily skin, so I usually prefer stick concealers because since they are thick, it is easier for me to blend out. I have tried benefit boi-ing, but it just melts off and is too orange for me. I have tried ysl stick concealer which also melts off, as well as tarte's stick concealer, and kat von d (which i didn't like since it was liquid, very hard to blend). What would you suggest that will last and won't make me look cakey? I was considering dermablend stick concealer or kevyn aucion sensual skin enhancer.. what are your suggestions? Any other products you would recommend?   Thank you!

Friday night I was getting ready to go out to dinner...and of course re-doing my makeup.  I was using and amazing natural look palette with the whole look spelled out (base, color, crease, line) and what a mess!  I just couldn't even do an eyeliner with a high quality shadow.  And I have those days. Yes, I love the beautiful looks...but on too many days it's a quick application of the basics and out the door.  So I have my idiot proof products and looks. The basic look is a BB or CC, concealer, meteorites, blush, mascara, lancome kohl on upper water line, matte bronzer and whatever lipstick is left in my bag from the day before.  Idiot proof products include Chanel Cheeky blush, my Givenchy lipsticks and Clean skin rollerball (in bag).  And one bright or red lipstick for when all else has worn off. Any suggestions for idiot proof products or looks...for when nothing seems to apply right and you really need to leave the house?
I really like the Better than Sex mascara made by Two Faced but it irritates my eyes.  Any suggestions for another mascara that goes on wet like that one?  I prefer one that doesn't smudge either and is longer lasting.    
Having trouble covering dark circles under my eyes. Can you recommend a product I can try.
 I have rosacea and dry skin. I need a foundation that will cover, not stick to the dry patches, and won't wear off in an hour or two. Any help?
