I'm interested in this primer but not sure which shade to go with.. I have oily/acne prone skin/pores. I'm not sure if I should go for the white pearl or the yellow base color?    Thank you!
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. 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 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!
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!!!    
Last time I brought the wrong powder foundation. The liquid deep 74  is a bit orange on me, if it had more of a "yellowish undertone" it would have been perfect(I believe).    
I use a loreal foundation, W5 true match (Warm - Chaude?)... I would really like to get bareminerals, What would my shade be for bareminerals?

Hi there, any recommendations for foundations similar to MUFE Face & Body? I LOVE the formula and the lightness but it is causing me to breakout which is strange since it is mostly water. Thank you! 
So there is this product: oofing-gel-P384062?skuId=1578731&country_switch=ca   It says its ingredient is silicone resin. Lots of people have been saying its the best thing ever to transform any lipstick into a non transfer lip. My question is this, IS is safe if you accidently consume it? I'm not talking about like putting it on your tongue, but if you're placing it on your lips, is that safe? I was trying to look it up. It did say that it could damage your lungs if consumed but I'm not sure if its referring to the same thing? There is information on silicone and resins, lots about silica, but the answers are different... So specifically silicone resin I only found one possible article but I wanted to know if someone might know more?
Hi! There:  Do you know what is the diffence between the iluminage skin smoothing laser (item#1682178) and the iluminage deluxe skin smoothing set ( item#1813781)? Which one is better or which one will do more to the skin? Thank you!
Hi,  I'm trying to find my shade match for the Marc Jacobs Remarcable foundation. I'm about NC25 in MAC with very strong yellow undertones. Most foundations tend to run pink or orange on me. Thank you!
There is no Sephora near me.  I've purchased the Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Foundation Powder in 06, but I look very pale when wearing it.  What shade could I switch to without looking too orange?
Hello everyone,   I want to ask advice for picking the right eyeshadow for myself. I actually own the NAKED Basics and Baked Eyeshadow (PK03) from The Face Shop and I would like to add another palette to my very small collection. I'm very much into simple eyeshadow makeup, something that I can wear on a daily basis. But I'd also want something to wear in some special occasions but again, nothing too dramatic. I was looking at NAKED 3 I really love the colours and I don't mind the pink since I've heard that the palette is subtle(pigment) compared to the first two palettes but I'm not sure if it's a great choice for myself. I'm an NC35 (yellow undertone) with a very dark brown hair and also dark brown eyes (southeast asian). Which palette's would you guys suggest? The highest I can go is $70.   Thanks!
I want to try the Drunk elephant line and would like to start with a moisturizing product. Any suggestions on what would be the best for dry mature skin?
I am going to Mexico in June and I always wear a light foundation at night. Any recommendations on a foundation that won't melt off? I got married in Mexico but I wanted a fuller coverage so I know that Estée Lauder Double Wear is amazing. I also use it all the time but like I said just something lighter. TIA
I'm between a light and medium (closer to medium during summer), with olive/yellow tones. What Naked foundation should I purchase? I don't have a Sephora near me, so I can't go in to try on! 
Hi! I was in Sephora and got colour matched for laura mercier tinted moisturizer in the colour almond. It is a good match, a little darker than my natural skin colour. I want to purchase the nars creamy concealer but I need help choosing a colour, I was thinking maybe biscuit but I'd like a second opinion! Thanks!
i have light to medium skin tone...which becca pressed skin corrector color is best ?
In Yves Saint Laurent TOUCHE ECLAT LE TEINT Radiance I wear BR20 but I want to try Estee Lauder's Daywear Foundation.  What color would I wear?
I normally use the FAB cleanser for sensitive skin. It's not my holy grail by any means but it keeps my skin balanced so it's something I'm constantly coming back to.    Recently however, I've noticed it's just not as hydrating as I once though it was. When I saw that Kate Somerville had this Goatmilk Cleanser coming out I was extremely anxious to try it but wanted to get some feedback before I did so.    Side note: I'm also prescribed Tretinoin which I apply every other night - sometimes only 2-3x per week. It's pretty harsh on my skin, but it works when used religiously.    Should I make the switch?   Thanks in advance   xoxo
I am having the hardest time finding a good under eye setting powder for myself!! I started off by using the bare minerals Well Rested concealer to set the under eye. I started off by really liking it cause of how well it brightened my under eye area and that it kept my concealer in place all day! Recently, I noticed it creases really badly and when I apply it, it looks all speckly! Since than, I tried the Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder. I used the baking method and I noticed the creasing stopped and that my under eye was instantly brighter! Although I loved the effect it gave to my under eyes, it does not last all day. My dark circles were 100% noticeable after only a few hours and that is not something I enjoy seeing! I really need help finding something that brightens, does not crease, lasts all day and does not look cakey! I have more of an olive skin tone if that helps. I really just need to find something good that is worth the price!
I have Xanthelasma (cholesterol deposits) on my eyelids.  What is the best makeup to camouflage this issue?
