Hello beauties, I am in search of a facial mask for combination/oily, acne-prone skin and have narrowed it down to two: Astara Blue Flame Purification Mask and Origins Clear Improvement Mask. Of the two, which would you recommend? Both masks have stellar reviews, so if any of you have used either one and can offer feedback, I would truly appreciate it. Thank you!
DG: It seems like yesterday when the two of us were sitting on my living room couch, obsessing about what our first product launch would be, while my newborn daughter slept soundly in her bassinet next to us. Fast forward 28 months and I’d never imagine that Lindsay would be in Brooklyn hosting a breakfast for the Sephora Cast and I’d be doing the same thing at the Powell Street store in San Francisco on the same day. The cast tested and tried each item and told us they were pleasantly surprised by the strong performance and pigment of each formula alongside the treatment benefits. Photo below and please forgive the bad hair day, it was pouring ;-) Our On-the-Glow Blush and Illuminator is in Sephora stores across the US, through the Scouted by Sephora endcap, but this is our first entirely Wander Beauty store fixture. It’s been a learning experience and there’s a lot more to learn. It was a constant battle between what looked good (bring on the gold lettering) and what wasn’t legible (forget the gold lettering)! Lindsay, what’s your fixture favorite? LE: Hands down the product I'm most excited about is our Unlashed Volume and Curl mascara. It was my mission to develop a mascara better than all of the ones I've tried and tested in the last 12 years as a model. We spent over two years developing the formula and remarkable brush to get it to that perfect place of buildable volume without flaking or smudging. I had a very long wish list for our mascara; I wanted volume, curl, lift, length, definition, water resistance, and much more. After a full day of performance, I wanted it to wash off easily. After we finalized the formula, I rigorously tested it (think intense workouts and steam rooms) and I hope you will love it just as much as I do! DG: My favorite has got to be Eyes on the Fly. As a mom of two, I need fewer things that do more and this really fits the bill. The long-wearing cream shadow on one side glides on and lasts all day. The smudgey eyeliner on the other side creates the perfect urban smokey eye that’s undone. My daytime combo is Shell Beach/French Press, while my go-to for a night out is Gilded/Black Jet. Gilded adds a level of intensity to my brown eyes that I love. LE: BeautyTalkers, have you Wander Beauty in stores? What do you think? What new fall releases are you loving?
I am 28 years old and my skin type is dry combination. My mean concerns are Acne , texture and dehydration . I aslo have few dark spots from acne. I never had acne issue until 2 years ago. So I am starting to thing that is due to the dehydration. I want to use both lines (since they have great reviews), but i am not sure which products i should use to target texture , acne and dehydration.
what the different between the nars radiant spectrum for foundation ( i believe) and the nars velvet matte spectrum? and which one would you prefer over? I have combination skin and oily t zone, just if you want to know.
I was wondering if I could use the VIB sale code even though I'm VIB Rouge. I won't have the money in time for the VIB Rouge sale but will have money by the time the VIB sale starts. So could I use the VIB code?

Hey! So a few of my friends seem to wax their eyebrows, and then the other half seem to get them threaded...I actually get my own waxed, but I was just wondering which is better to get done when it comes to getting a nice arch, shape, and inner look. I have had both done and actually find the threading to be slightly more painful than the waxing, but of course I've only had it done once and am not a reliable source when it comes to questioning which is better!! Can someone help me out here?!?! Thank you!!!
Hello, I am looking for makeup, preferably a powder makeup, for extremely sensitive skin. I would like something that will even out my skin tone, because I have some scars from break-outs. My skin gets easily irritated by makeup products and I am allergic to a lot of skincare products as well (for example, the only skincare product I can use is Aveeno). When I get a reaction, my skin tends to get very itchy and I get bumps. It's been very hard for me to find a makeup that I can tolerate. But, I am currently using Origins (an Estee Lauder brand) pressed powder. The only problem that I have with this makeup (and with some other ones in general) is that it gives me enlarged pores, makes me breakout, and looks cakey at the end of the day. I have tried a lot of makeup and always got negative results either from an allergic reaction or from breaking out from it. Some brands that I've tried, but made me react are makeup found in pharmacy stores, Cover F/X, Clinique, Bare Minerals, and Benefit. Is there any brand of powder makeup that anyone could suggest for super sensitive skin and skin that breaks-out to makeup?
I'm deciding between the anastasia glow kit in sun dipped or the becca highlighter in opal for my everyday versatile highlighter. Pros for the glow kit is that it comes with several shades but cons doesn't show up a lot on my cheeks (i wasn't using a brush so that might be the reason). Pros are the becca is that it goes on my cheeks so easily and shows up really well, but cons is that its only 1 shade. I'm not sure which one i should get! help!
What happened to the Sephora pore perfecting primer mist? It was the only product that kept me matte all day and it doesn't seem to be available in stores anymore! Has it been discontinued or is it being upgraded so the nozzle functions properly (if it is has been discontinued are there any comparable aerosol products)? Thank you!
I'm looking for a skin care that's going to help fade away hyper pigmentation, or even prevent it in the future from growing on anywhere. And I want i'm planning to aim around $25-$30 if thats possible. So please tell me which is worth the deal. Thank you.

Hi! I have super oily skin and acne/blemishes and i don't know what to do! I don't know what works and what doesn't anymore, and I'm just trying to get that clear skin I've always wanted. Please help! (i don't wear much make up)
I have combination skin, but it is also red and I have little acne, but I have blackheads and small acne bumps especially on my forehead. My main concern is getting red of the small bumps found on my forehead. Any suggestions!? ALSO when I am applying my make up I find that my foundation and other products seem to separate on my T zone, how can I avoid this?
I have a light to medium warm skin, and my skin is pretty oily around my T-zone and chin, but on some parts it can be so dry it's almost flaky. I live in a tropical climate so I can get pretty sweaty, so I'm always nervous my makeup is going to melt off. I have to use medium to heavy foundation & concealer to cover my uneven skin tones and spider veins, so I have a few questions: 1. Should I use cream contour or powder/dry contour? Which one is easier to use/blend? Which one would last longer? 2. Do you have any recommendation which kit to get? Do I need a kit or do I only need like one contour and one highlight color? 3. Is it possible that contour has enough coverage that I can opt for a lighter foundation? Or is it just to create that light and dark? 4. Considering I'm already pretty tan, do I even need a bronzer? Finally, this is kinda a newbie question, but... Do I use contour before or after I use powder? I would think before so I don't mess up the contour again after I apply powder, but I've seen a lot of people do it after as well so I'm confused. Do I contour before or after eyebrow & eyeshadow etc? Thank you in advance for your answer
Hi there, I'm hoping I can get some recommendation for an eyeshadow palette (and primer). I'm Asian with hooded lids which can get pretty oily, so I'm thinking of either getting the Urban Decay or Tarte primer, but I'm also considering Smashbox and Kat Von D one. They all priced pretty similarly, so I'm kinda still undecided on that. If you can recommend one that works well (and hopefully works for eyeliner too because my liquid eyeliner always end up under my eye somehow even though it's super waterproof) I would really appreciate it. I have light to medium warm skin and brown eyes. I'm pretty new to makeup in general and eyeshadow especially, so I'm hoping that I can kinda get that one palette that does it all. Because of my hooded lids I thought about getting an all matte palette like Kat Von D Shade + Light or Too Faced Natural Matte palette, but I'm also eyeing Tartelette in Bloom palette which got amazing reviews. My only concern with KVD Shade+Light palette is that I may not use the neutral and cool shades that much. Plus I didn't have much luck with eyeshadows before because the color can't seem to stick, so I thought I should get a creamier shadow like Tartelette. I'm not really considering Naked palettes because they have a lot of shimmers which I don't think I would use that much. I've been recommended the Lorac Pro palette as well, but I'm not sure if I would ever use that many colors so it feels kinda wasteful to me. However if there's other palettes that you would recommend, I'd love to hear that too. The look I'm going for is more of a daytime look for work, but every once in a while I'd like to be able to do a night look as well. Thank you in advance for your reply
