I have previously gotten 1R02 on the Color IQ chart, and it's not too dark, but it looks way too yellow on me. I have dry skin, and want a medium-to-full coverage foundation. Any color/foundation recommendations? Thanks to all suggestions.
I am oily in the t zone and have tried foundation before but quit wearing it because it always felt too heavy and would wear off during the day. I want some type of coverage that makes my face look smoother but helps with fine lines and wrinkles and isn't too heavy. I've been reading about bb creams and tinted moisturizers and was wondering if that is the way to go. There are so many products out there and i don't even know where to start. Basically i want some coverage, not too heavy that will stay on throughout the day. Any advice?
Hi! I have a very sensitive skin and lately I am having quite a hard time with it. I am 40 (already!) and still have acne (little, very deep under the skin type of pimples, not exactly what you see on those acne treatment informercials). It will breakout for several reasons (hormone, heat, stress...) I followed different treatment for that (even with a dermatologist) and I found out that, because my skin is very sensitive, using acne treatment actually make it worst somehow...my combination skin is often mistaken for a very oily one because as soon as I use something too strong my skin get's oily to cope with the harsh ingredients. So, I am looking for new products for my skin because what I am using right now cause my skin to breakout a lot and my skin is itchy. I am using clinique products (the more gentle soap, the no.2 clarifying lotion, the turnaround revitalizing serum and the moisturizing gel). I am using the Neutrogena CC cream instead of a fondation. Usually when I combine a very gentle soap with very light moisturizing I am doing fine. I would like to know the products that may be better for me (from soap to moisturizer), which BB or CC cream to use, well, which skin care would make my skin better. I know my skin is not typical but maybe that might help other women that also have a very difficult skin. It's hard to find a product that will soothe and prevent acne, help with those first wrinkles as well as be gentle on a skin that won't put up with ingredients that are too strong. Thank you so much for your help! Ps. I hope the writing is not too bad, english is my second langage
Hey , I recently have gone looking for a new foundation and am choosing between the Estée Lauder double wear stay in place foundation and the lancome Teint idole 24h long wear foundation . I have oily t zone if that helps . I have tried to lancome one and liked it but always wanted to try a cult favorite but I'm not sure what is better for me .
Hi folks, Ive been scouring the internet looking for answers regarding an eye cream. I'm 24, but I have fine lines and slightly dark circles, fine lines being my main concern. Heres my question: Shiseido's night cream is $72 for 50mL, while their eye cream is $68 for 15mL. Don't get me wrong, I believe their products work but what I'm wondering is- for values sake, can I just get the night cream instead of the eye cream, and use the night cream on my eyes, as many of the ingredients are similar? NIGHT CREAM: http://www.sephora.com/benefiance-wrinkleresist24- night-cream-P173616?skuId=1316306&country_switch=c ... EYE CREAM: http://www.sephora.com/benefiance-wrinkleresist24- intensive-eye-contour-cream-P173620?skuId=1408202& ... I have tried many eye creams, I want to halt the aging process as much as possible. Too many hours spent studying and staring at a screen are doing damage and I'm desperately trying to undo it. Any advice would be appreciated!! Thanks
I typically use MAC NW20 but want to try something else. I've been using MAC for a long time but technology changes so I am pretty sure I can find something else. I'm interested in either Sephora Collection bright future gel serum or Tarte marcuja concealer however I'm not sure what color(s) to choose that would be suitable replacements for MAC NW20. Any suggestions?
Hi! These past couple of months I have been using cheaper makeup brands. Now, my skin is starting to react badly to them. I don't break out, but my skin feels like it is burning. I am looking for face products like foundation, concealer, color correctors, and powders (translucent/setting powder and regular face powder). Brands, tips, and any other helpful advice are very much appreciated. Thank you!
Hey guys! so i was looking into these pallet's and I really like them both. I do like Becca's highlighters, but i haven't really used their blushes. Can anyone do a pros vs cons for these two pallet's for me?
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!
So there is this product: http://www.sephora.com/beauty-genius-clear-waterpr 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!
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 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
