Hi Everyone, So I need some advice. I'm looking to find a new skincare regimen that actually works. I've used things in the past that have either worked for a bit or have done absolutely nothing. A little bit about my skin. I'm in my mid 20's and have light acne, struggle with uneven texture and have some scarring. My skin is combination and is relatively sensitive. In and ideal world my skincare would clear my acne, even out my texture and lighten my scarring. If anybody has any product recommendations that would target my problems and that you think would work for me PLEASE let me know!! Thanks so much!
Currently at night I exfoliate a few times a week and then use a toner and a moisturizer, in the morning I just use a daily moisturizer before applying foundation. I am Definitely going to try both the first aid beuty line and the origins, in place of my Body Shop moisturizers! Are there any other products to help relieve dry skin? have you tried the Perricone MD line?
I use Stila CC then an illuminating foundation. For a quick makeup time I use cream sticks for highlighting, contouring and cheeks. For a longer time, I use powders. I am told that my makeup looks nice but I would like to achieve a more luminescent look. Is there a finishing spray that is luminescent? I see that you have a new primer. I wondered about that.

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!
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.
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.
I've been using Lancome Renergie foundation in Porcelaine 30 w 0r the 25 w..I cant find it anywhere and was going to try the visonaire... I just dont know what shade..Is there a shade close to what i was using
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?
I use the color bamboo beige in LM Silk Foundation which is tad light for me, and I don't know what color I should get for the new LM Smooth Finish Flawless Fluid Foundation. I have a yellow undertone skin, and I'm roughly NC 20-25 in MAC.
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
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?????
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.
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.
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.
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.
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,
