Q. Colorful Liquid Eyeliner
Hi everyone! I've been getting really into wearing more colorful liquid eyeliners lately, but I've had one problem: on Sephora.com, the top-rated ones are usually black, brown, or grey! I really would prefer to use a liquid, or a gel if I really have to. So, my question to you is: what is the best liquid eyeliner that comes in colors such as gold, silver, blue, etc.?

good foundation for beginners
I am looking for a foundation that is light and not heavy. I do not normally wear foundation but have latley noticed more freckles and a few red spots that I would like to cover up. Something that will even out my face but not obvious that I have make up on. What type of foundation is recomened for me to try? Remember I am new to foundation!

SPECIAL GUEST milobear27 / SPECIAL GUEST SPECIAL GUEST / replied
Light foundation won't cover freckles. I suggest using concealer on problem areas or using a powder foundation if you want to even skin tone.  see post

Foundation for Dry/Pale/Acne skin
Hello, I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a good foundation and primer for extremely dry skin? The foundation also needs to come in very light shades. I also have problems with acne, so I need something with full or buildable coverage and I prefer liquid foundations since they are more hygienic than anything in a pot or compact. Thanks.

I need a do it all eye cream. Have been using Obagi for all skin care and considering changing.
Hello], I am interested in a high performing eye cream and/or treatment. I have been using Obagi for several years, then a friend suggested Rodan & Fields. I've only used the latter for an eye cream. It's ok for moisturizing, but I have noticed firming, helping the dark circles, etc. I have been told the Obagi products have the most prescription strength ingredients over store bought, but I am open to suggestions. I am 46, caucasian woman with a history of dark circles and now fine lines.

Not too powdery powder foundation
I want to switch back to a powder foundation - I go back and forth. The only powder foundation I've used in the past is MAC Studio Fix.   I'd like something not quite as powdery if that makes sense. Does anyone have any experience with Guerlain's? All my liquid foundations are from Guerlain and I love them so much so thought their powder might be just as good.   All suggestions are welcome but I don't want sheer coverage. I have good skin, no real issues except some red/pink undertones I like to cover.    http://www.sephora.com/lingerie-de-peau-powder-fou ndation-P388986?skuId=1633585

Your Skincare Routine
Hey ladies, I was just going through the skincare products and really wanted to see what your thoughts were on certain products so I thought I'd start a questionnaire type thing because I'm hunting for new skincare products and wanted to know what others use/works.   What is your skin type?   Morning Routine:    What is your favorite everyday cleanser? What do you cleanse with on acne/oily or dry days? What do you use to exfoliate?   Do you use a toner? Which one is your HG?   What has been your favorite serum? What serum have you tried that you would like to get or recommend for others?   Oil-free or oil moisturizer? What moisturizer do you use?    SPF, yes or no? If yes, which one do you use or is it in your moisturizer?   Nighttime Routine:   What do you use to remove makeup? Do you use any oils or balm cleansers? What do you use to cleanse your face after makeup removal or on days of no makeup?   What is your favorite mask for the following: Hydration? Exfoliation? Soothing?   What toner do you use in the evening?   Do you use a heavy duty treatment serum? Do you switch up your evening serums?   What is your favorite night cream?   ----   I know some people won't have answers to all the categories but I figured this is a good way of getting a lot of my questions answers (and I'm sure others' as well).   I would really appreciate your answers!

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Highlighter Color Match
Hello,    I have been trying to find a highlighter that is more of a matte and not a shimmer and I have read some very good reviews about Yves Saint Laurent  TOUCHE ÉCLAT - Radiant Touch. I was wondering what shade to purchase. Please help! My current foundation is  tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage in light-neutral and my color match is #2Y05. I am a light medium with warm/neutral undertones and if possible prefer to stay away from anything that is too yellow in color. I was looking at color 2.5 but I'm concerned that might be too dark to be used as a highlighter not a concealer.

So much research, so many choices, trial and error, looking for skin routine
Hi, I am 24 years old and have many skin concerns and am obsessed with beauty products and reviews since I have been disabled so it passes the time.  However, I'm not getting any direct answers to a good skin routine to up my skin game.  All my life I have true oily and olive skin.  So I am a bit blemish prone..but that was only to pimples. Now I am suffering from pores on my cheeks and chin which is odd. And know I have combination skin (shiny t zone drier cheeks) I am now better to know to try out skin care products in starter kits to see what is best.  I am also concerned with aging and due to insomnia have dark circles under my eyes (which products have been helped) so I'm looking for aging products especially a night mask that don't make me break out.  I always used sacylic face wash and spot treatment for pimples and clinique dramatically different moisturizing lotion but it turns my face red.  I currently have tried the pore no more to go  kit by dr brandt. with their triple peptide eye cream.  I use charchol face wash and the biore face scrub 2 a week and also do the one minute mask.  I used the skin ceuticals equalizing toner but it doesn't do much.  And I don't want to mix products.  And the ROC 5 in 1 multi correction restoring night cream recommended makes me break out like CRAZY.  I started bought the simple start for trouble free skin by shisedo mainly for the mostiurizier but I was wondering what you thought about it.  I got sales of the mural black head reformer and pore reefing as well as murals acne spot fix.  And I use Tree Body wash for bacne breakouts which works wonder fly.  What do you believe is the best night cream for my skin and day and night routine?  Especially Day?
