trying to choose between two make up sets for our 13 year old daughter wanting to learn
I've narrowed it down to  SEPHORA COLLECTION Geometricolor Palette Blockbuster ITEM 1802198   which i like because it looks like so much and has some guidance, i think.   or    SMASHBOX Master Class Palette: Lighting Theory ITEM 1833425 which still has a good variety ( i think) and potentially nicer quality?  or ?  anyone have any thoughts on comparison?   xoxo y thank you in advance - !! coco

I need advice on foundation and skin routine from someone who has dry/oily skin at the same time lol
Hi! I am 25 years old and recently I started to notice that under my eyes I have wrinkles.. as well as around my mouth (laugh line area). I am currently using KAT VON D lock it foundation. Within an hour my nose literally MELTS off. I use PUPA primer as well which is mattefying. It doesn't help. Why is my nose MELTING? Its so weird my forehead will be so dry you can literally see the foundation on top of dry skin, and then within an hour its like my face is melting off and becomes oily.. it is also red all over my nose so its like I'm Rudolph with an oily face?? ZERO SENSE. I need a good skin routine and a proper foundation that has worked for you. THANKS! I have been struggling with these issues since I was a teen I am DREAMING of finally getting the right products

Natasha Denona 10 metal/shimmer palette question
I just got this pallet and I am really disappointed in need advice I used it this morning for the first time with Smashbox 24 primer and my finger and it was gone within the first hour. I use palettes from UD ( all the naked's and vices), two faced, ABS, BOTH MODERN REN AND MARIO, Kat Von D, you get the idea. I've never had an eyeshadow not last all day.  Also used UD makeup setting spray as usual.  What am I doing wrong?  I've heard such great things about her palettes so I was wondering how others are getting her shadows to last more than an hour. It was embarrassing to have my shadow partly gone by time I got to work and it looked awful.  Any ideas?  Don't like returning things but this cost too much if I can't get it to work?  Thanks

foundation shade darker?
Hello, I am about to purchase bare minerals foundation powder in matte for winter. I bought the fairly light. I like it. It matches. But was wondering if I went a little darker would it look messy? Any advice? Also purchasing seduction by kat von d the refill. Tried it at the store and fell in love. Wondering if that would look good together.

Biotherm Blue Products
I have done a lot of research in looking for a new skin care line and have decided to go with the Biotherm Blue line. I am 62 and need some extra help. However, I'm confused about a few of their products and cannot find the info on their site.  Re their Life Plankton Essence - according to some literature, this is in all of their products. So what is the benefit to buying and using a separate bottle of it? Re their creams - what is the difference between their night cream and the accelerated cream (also called silky cream)? If I was only getting one, which one should it be?  and finally - re the eye creams - if I do not have a lot of wrinkles in the eye area, but do have some drooping above my eye, should I buy the Blue eye cream or the Aquasource (which is $20 cheaper)?   Thanks so much for your help. I am trying to figure all of this out before the sale starts on Friday.  Marilyn

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder for dry skin??
I heard a lot about this powder but I'm not sure whether to buy it or not. I have dry skin so I like to look dewy/radiant. The shades for my foundations are MUFE ultra hd foundation 117, tarte rainforest of the sea fair light neutral, and too faced born this way pearl. Which "shade" would you reccomend? Or if this powder is not suited for dry skin, then what other powders are good? (I just want to set my makeup but not look satin or matte afterwards)

SHISEIDO/eye cream question
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

finding a suitable concealer similar to MAC NW20
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?

In need of new face products for combination skin that aren't cakey or powdery and have good coverage
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!
