I need help! I went in to a Sephora store and was matched up to the Make Up Forever Full Coverage Concealer in Dark Beige #12. It looked great inside the store but in natural light, it still seems a bit dark. I am using it to cover a small tattoo on my arm. The color is very close, but it makes my arm look like I have a bruise on it. I would like to order it in a shade lighter, but I am not sure if I should go with Golden Beige #10, or Beige #8. Will the golden beige #10 be too yellowish? Will the beige #8 be too light?  Suggestions?

Happy Sunday, everyone!   QVC's today's special value (TSV) is this device today. I am 38yo, fair to light, and I have combination, sensitive, acne-prone skin. I am especially sensitive to anything win fragrance.   I used the NuFace Trinity device, and it definitely did provide a lift, but it wasn't a terribly pleasant experience. It also irritated my skin a bit. I returned it.   i am intrigued by the Tria TSV. I would like it for fine lines and evening out the texture of my skin.    has anyone used this? Did it work? How does it compare to dermie office fraxel treatments, or, I guess, does it even compare?   thank you for any guidance!

I dont have fine lines under my eyes...they are definitly noticeable and look even worse when I wear concealer for my dark circles. So now I'm deciding to treat the lines under my eyes. What eye cream have you ladies used that was effective to reduce or completly diminish wrinkles under the eyes? I'm in my 20s btw.

Hi all, I've recently come to terms with the fact that the Lip Tar formula is just not going to work for me - too drying on me. However one of my favorite lip colors, OCC Pretty Boy, I have only seen in the Lip Tar formula. Would any of you happen to know of any similar lipstick shades, preferably opaque and non-matte? I looked up dupes on Temptalia's site but the two she lists aren't quite what I'm looking for, they're either too light (illamasqua welt) or a little too red (nars carthage).   here are some images for reference:   alexbeautycorner on blogspot - temptalia - xsparkage -

Hello, Since I am sensitive to silicones, I am excited to try Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics tinted moisturizer and concealer.   I have been looking at images online, and am guessing that I am somewhere around Y2 for the tinted moisturizer and R1 for concealer.   Foundations that match my skin are: Smashbox High Definition Healthy FX Foundation SPF 15 in L4 Bobbi Brown Moisture Rich Foundation SPF 15 in Natural 4 Everyday Minerals matte base in Medium Beige (a medium peach color) matches well and is brightening on me.   Right now I don't have a concealer due to the silicone problem.   I think I'd be considered a medium-light toned caucasian. I look yellow when my skin is next to my husband's, and he looks pink and a bit lighter.   I think I look best in foundation and concealers that are peach, rather than yellow.   Can anyone please advise me on which colors to try (in either or both the tinted  moisturizer  and concealer)?   Thank you! Karen

Help! I've been using Benefit's You Rebel Tinted Moisturizer religiously, but saw they've discontinued it! Does anyone have a recommendation for an oil-free tinted moisturizer with the same dewy finish and some SPF? I have combination olive skin and dont want anything too heavy. Thanks for the help!!

I've noticed the peel pads that are individually wrapped are larger, big enough for me to cover my neck, chest and hands, but I've seen them come in the little bulk packaging as well, and they look smaller and circular Instead of the individually wrapped larger, square shaped pads. Does anyone know whether the 15 pad pack, the 30 pad pack, 60 pad pack, ect. Has the individually wrapped pads or the bulk packs with smaller circular pads? And also, if there's a price difference between them?   The descriptions seem ambiguous and I want to make sure I get the most out of my money! I already know they work really well for my skin it's just a matter of what's most cost effective! Any help would be much appreciated! Also, if anyone had tried a similar product that worked better for them, please share! Thanks!!

Every foundation I've tried including HD Makeup forever and Dr.Perricone, from cream to liquid piles up in pores and lines. I have a fantastic skin care regimen with Dr. Perricone, but Perricone foundation and coverup are not good. Running out of options.

I am 39 and noticing small, fine lines under my eyes. (Thankfully, the crows feet have not popped up yet, but I'm sure they're on the way!) I use MUFE powder foundation, which I absolutely LOVE, but I can't use it under my eyes because it settles into all the fine lines and REALLY ages me. (Not a good look!)  I confess that I'm pretty dumb when it comes to makeup, even though I love everything about it. I need some help, please! What can I use to cover up the dark circles and even out my skin tone under my eyes, that won't cake or settle into my wrinkles? I've tried concealer, (I have Laura Mercier), and while it covers up the dark circles, it also settles into the fine lines, much like the powder does. I was thinking of trying a BB cream?? What do you guys think??

I have oily skin, more oil in T zone, but also oily in top cheek area (the part of the cheeks that's closest to nose/eye.) BUT, the part of the cheeks that's further down (below cheekbone until past jawline) is very dry! I have a hard time finding a good moisturizer for this type of skin.  I need oil control in the middle but moisture in the bottom.  I use acne medication in the jawline area and chin area that makes it even more dry.  I wonder if the IBUKI moisturizer would be hydrating enough for this or do you have another suggestion?  thank you!!!!!

I am trying to decide between NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer and Lancôme Effacenes under eye concealer. I hear good things about both. I have pretty dark circles under my eyes and am light to medium olive skin tones.   Any suggestions? I've asked about concealers in the past but, have narrowed it down to these two! I have used the Lancôme before in beige. It wasn't great, I am thinking of buying it in Claire II this time hoping it works better!   I am not familiar with the NARS at all and could use some input on product and color.   Thank you so much!!
