Can any one recommend a product that will really dissolve blackheads?  I have heard of this type of product but can not find one that actually states on the package that it does dissolve blackheads! I have tried one recommended cleanser, Boscia Black Cleanser, but it did not get rid of the blackheads...it was very drying as well! I do understand that with any kind of blemish product that there will be some amount of drying. I have tried a few other cleansers and exfoliating products with only a little bit of luck in getting rid of my blackheads...but I really want to get rid of them all!  I have had them most of my life, they are not bad, just enough to be annoying to me!  If any one can recommend a really good product it would really be appreciated!  I even have a Clairsonic but some just won't go away! Thanks every one!

So I've been using Bare Minerals foundation for the past 3 years, and I love how radiant it makes my skin look and how the color blends well with it... However, I've found with the seasons changing and working a job where I'm highly active and sweat A LOT, I'm constantly reapplying the foundation daily and it just makes my skin look terrible by the end of the day. I'm interested in finding a new foundation that is sweat resistant and won't settle into my large pores. I have very uneven skin but I don't want something that's too full of coverage that it looks fake. If anyone could give me some advice on a product worth looking into I'd much appreciate it!

I have fine hair with wavy/curls. My hair likes to do whatever it wants. Most of the times likes to stick to my face which I hate. I am not sure if I have frizz or moisture or what problems. I have never had controlled or nice looking hair. Can anyone help me?

It's just so hard for me to find a good concealer to cover dark circle under my eyes. I tried Bobbi Brown corrector and concealer, but it didn't work out well, it made my under eye cakey, and it didn't stay until the end of the day; after few hours, I look like a panda already. But, warm beige is perfect shade for me. Nars don't have any color that fit my skin, so it just look so unnatural.

I'm looking for nickle free mascara and eye-shadow that is also for sensitive eyes. I have tried so many products and after a couple hours my eyes are irritated. And also eye moisturizer. Most give me bags under my eyes. It's like in trying to re-hydrate, they cause fluid collection under my eyes, if that makes sense.

Hello lovely Beauty Gurus,   Last year I bought Sephora's Artful Traveler brush roller/holder to use when I started accumulating brushes. Now a year later, I've run out of space in that! So now I'm looking for yet another brush case for storage.   I have brushes of all sizes. Most are Sephora brushes but I do have some Sonia Kashuk, elf, and Estee Lauder brushes. I'm not interested in using jars or putting them out in the open on top of the bathroom counter - there's just something about them all being out in the open in the bathroom all day and night that seems unsanitary to me.    So what are your suggestions for cases that will be large enough to fit what I do have now (maybe 25 brushes) and that can grow with me a little.    I just saw the new Sephora Pro Portfolio and Easel...anyone have thoughts on those? They're pretty affordable and look like they could be the answer I'm looking for.   Thanks so much in advance for all your help - you guys rock!

I have extremely oily skin and pretty bad acne all over my face. I am looking for a full coverage foundation that will also keep my face matte and shine-free all day long. I have found problems with my foundations looking splotchy in spots and not flawless. So I would like something to make my skin look flawless. If you could help me find my perfect foundation that would be great! Thanks! Riley

I am in my late 30s, have fair sensitive skin and as I am aging my skin tone is becoming increasingly uneven with "sun spots" and freckles.  I currently use Aveda moisturizer for Sensitive Skin and for makeup application I am using Too Faced Oil Free Primer or Hangover Rx Primer and Kat Von D Lock It Foundation in light 44 then topping off with Urban Decay Loose Powder.  I get somewhat good coverage but would like a more smooth finish and would like to know if there is a serum that would help minimize the spots and even out skin tone?  Would a BB product work?  Also have to watch what I use as I am allergic to glycerin and have dry/combination skin.

hi, i have fair asian skin that's combination to oily and I figured i need a good contour palette that's a powder and I'm in the midst of looking at all of them and was wondering if the hourglass ambient lighting palette is a better choice or the marc jacob's #instamarc is? if it's the marc jacobs, what is the better shade for my skin? also i tend to break out easily so i dont want anything that would contribute to acne. if there's another contour palette i should look into, im open for any advice thanks

Hi all, recently I've discovered that silicone and talc both wreak havoc on my face and I end up with terrible breakouts. I've been using a great silicone free primer from clarins but now I'm on the hunt for a foundation to fit my needs. Does anyone have a recommendation for something that is both silicone and talc free? I've tried the Laura Mercier Moisture Supreme but it made me really oily by the end of the day. I also tried Bare Minerals but they don't have a good color match for my skin tone. My skin is sensitive, acne prone, and combination leaning more towards the oily side. Thanks!

I just started using a few products from the Sunday Riley line - specifically, the Luna Oil at night and Good Genes and Bionic moisturizer in the morning. I find that later in the day, my skin feels a little dry - not flaky or peeling, just dry. Should I swap out the Bionic for one of their other oils?

Is foundation supposed to look "flawless" close up?  I use a pressed powder foundation from MAC, as with liquid (such as tarte Amazonian clay) I begin to get oily.  I've applied with both brushes and the beauty blender.  Somehow, it looks *great* at a distance, but when I lean in to look closer at the mirror, like when I'm applying eyeliner, it looks horrible.  Usually I wouldn't mind, but when I'm talking to people, I wonder whether they're at a distance to see the calmness of my makeup.   I can't imagine that I'm "applying it wrong".  I literally take the beauty blender, swirl it around in the compact, and press it into my face.  And this is after using the green smashbox photo finish primer.   Oh - and I've also tried RCMA.  FORGET IT!  That stuff is even worse!  My whole face is tiny little flakes in no time.   Thanks.

Hi!   Can't find an answer to this in the product's Q&A so I thought I should ask here:  When the Dior SkinFlash Radiance Booster Pen is empty, does it stop clicking or does it simply not dispense anymore product?  I read at least one review saying their pen wouldn't dispense product unless they kept the applicator clean by washing it regularly.  I wish I could see how much product was still in the pen.     Thanks for any help!

Hello everyone   My senior prom is on Friday, and I need a photo friendly foundation to wear. (Im terrified of having a white cast in photos...)I'd prefer to stay away from matte foundations and go more for dewy since I wanna look glowy lol and plus, I have dry skin. I'd also need medium to full coverage, because I have dark marks from acne.   Any suggestions? I'm thinking about asking for samples just for prom because I don't have the money to spend on foundation right now. Thank you!    P.s. if you guys have any dewy makeup routine tips, let me know please

I've been using Elizabeth Arden eye shadow primer for the past several years and really love it, but unfortunately, I think it's been discontinued because I'm having trouble finding it.  Are there any other great eye shadow primers out there that are good for oily eyelids?  I'm interested in a product that will help my eye shadow last all day.  Thank you, beauties!   Love, Daskala
