I am looking for a new perfume, most of all one that lasts. I tried Narcisco Rodriquez Her in store and loved it, but now I am unsure, because the online reviews say that the smell doesn't last. Since it is expensive, I would want it to last quite a while. Do you guys have any recommendations? I currently have Miss Dior Cherie and Bronze Goddess by Estee Lauder.
Hi, I love self-tanning my face after cleansing, but never know if I should moisturize my face first, and then apply face self-tanning cream, or apply self-tanning cream, let it set it and then moisturize, or does it not matter?
My sister needs help balancing her skin out. She has an oily AND dry t-zone because of a minor acne. She has dry skin at the center of her forehead, between the eye brows, on her nose, and her skin. She's on the pill, so I thought that's what's causing her combination t-zone. She has a hard time sticking to skin routines because she sometimes goes out and doesn't come home, so her basic routine is: Neutrogena makeup remover wipes Clean & Clear Daily Pore Cleanser Paula's Choice 2% BHA exfoliant Simple Light Moisturizer or Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion Tretinoin (only when she needs it) I don't have a solution for her ): She also can't wear some liquid foundations because they emphasize dry skin
I want to try out the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay- In- Place Foundation and maybe the Nars Sheer Matte Foudation but I don't know what shade I would be....

Hello, I am wondering how the Buxom Lash mascara and Urban Decay Lush Lash mascara would compare. They have very similar hourglass brushes. I have been using Buxom Lash, and really like it. Should I stick with Buxom Lash or try the Urban Decay one?
Do you tend to match or contrast the undertones in the various shades you apply to your face? Not relative to skin tone, but relative to one another? I hadn't thought about it before today but for some reason on my drive to work I started wondering if people tended to, or there were any "rules" (unwritten, of course) regarding coordinating the undertones of eyeshadow, cheek and lip colors. Do you consciously or unconsciously opt for coordinating or contrasting warm and cool undertoned color products?
Hi guys! I have a little trouble getting tan during the summer. I am Irish and Italian but it seems that I have more of the Irish skin :-/. I am looking for a good self-tanner that lasts long and doesn't streak. I was researching the Tarte Brazilliance Skin and the Lancome Leg Gel. My legs are my primary focus because I'm assuming I have low levels of melatonin since I tend to have more whiteness and even some white spots after I burn. If any of you have tried either or product, I would appreciate your honest review! Sometimes, you can't always believe the reviews you see for products on websites. Side note: I have tried St. Tropez in the past and it did not work for me. It comes out very streaky and orange, so I was not impressed. I have also tried the drugstore Jergen's Natural Glow - worst smell ever!!!! P.S. I would not mind any recommendations on good body exfoliants and lotions to use prior to self-tanning, as it is very helpful and important to avoid streaks. I ran out of the exfoliant I use from LUSH! and am too far to make a casual trip there to buy more. Thanks for any help!
I very recently purchased the Lingerie De Peau foundation and I'm in LOVE. I'm just wondering if it's worth purchasing the BB for my days that I'm rushed and don't want to do the whole moisturzer, concealer, primer thing. Would it be overkill to have both products? I don't want a heavy overly creamy BB though - I like lighter more matte finishes - esp for summer.
I am curious to know what masks are good to use with my Dr. Dennis Gross facial steamer. I have used the ORIGINS Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask as well as the BOSCIA Luminizing Black Mask. Both work amazing, just wondering what else would work really well.
Is there a product either cream or wipe that will reduce redness immediately after working out? I have very light skin and when I workout I get very red and it can take 30-40 mins post workout to get back to normal. I would love to find a product that would help reduce that time frame to make working out over lunch and prior to work in the morning easier. Would love suggestions.
Can this be used with my Clarisonic and/or Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge? I use my Clarisonic about twice a week and the Boscia Sponge every day. Currently I'm using Clinique's Redness Solutions Cleanser and it works great, but I'm always looking to try something new. I have reactive, redness prone, sensitive fair skin if that helps.
hi! funny-- though i am turning 17 in less than two months i have not yet begun to wear makeup. i have dark brown hair, eyes and fairly dark coloring (always attempting to tan ). i am looking for a sophisticated, simple, a touch more than natural look (i dont find the purple eyeshadow, pink cheeks and lips attractive) for a makeup design. if you have the time, what do you recommend?
I have recently gotten in to make up more. I've always worn it but I am now looking at different options and ways to apply it. I want to start wearing lip color but am unsure of what color to choose or how to choose a couple to try. And what's better, lip stain or lipstick?
Hi, Does Too Faced sell individual eye shadows? I have a boudoir for eyes but am almost out of one shade that I love. I don't want to buy another set just for the one shade. I don't see them indivudually on your website. Maybe in stores?
I constantly break out from acne it's on my cheeks and my chin, I just want something to wash my face with or a treatment but something to end this cycle of breaking out it at least help me get clear skin. I use the ClarisImpact it doesn't work. My face is very sensitive and the philosophy burned it. I use ren, I used murad I used a bunch of others and it doesn't help. Please help me with a good product. Also I have dry skin.
So, I have problem skin with acne and redness. Every morning I wash, apply benzoyl peroxide and then lotion. I've tried a few primers like Prime Time, the Smashbox Photo Finish in light and original, and various samples that I can't remember. Within 2-3 hrs any makeup I use looks like it's melting off. The only one I've found that keeps my makeup in place is the Smashbox Photo Finish More than Primer - Blemish Control. The problem with this is I hate the initial application of it. My face is already dry from washing and treating it, then this primer takes away any moisture I had from my lotion. I've mixed lotion in with it (as well as Macs Strobe Cream) and that helps some but not enough to give a smooth makeup application (it feels like my brush is dragging against dry skin, especially around pimples.) The only reason I keep using this is because the dryness of it does come in handy by the end of the day. BUT, I'm hoping there is a better primer out there that can give me a nice moisturizing feel in the mornings while still keeping control of my oil in the afternoons. Any advice? I use Lancome Teint Idole Ultra foundation. I also use Skindinavia makeup setting spray.
Hi. I cant decide if I should just get a good tinted moisturizer and then put a setting powder on over it or if I should get a foundation plus setting powder? I have redness on my cheeks ( eczema), so its something i'm insecure about and want to cover up but I want to find the right way to go about doing it. What would be your suggestion?
So I recently took a trip to Sephora and purchased Makeup Forever's Mat Velvet Foundation in Shade 55 but it was way too orange. I went back, got matched and came home with Shade 45 (Soft Beige) but noticed it makes my skin look pink! Can someone please help? I wear MAC's Studio Fix Powder in NC$) and it matches perfectly!
Help! I have a photo shoot taking place in Rarotonga, and i need something that will give the model a nice shimmer The shoot will take place mostly at the beach (sand and in the water) I am looking for a product that will give her a nice shimmer to enhance the pics I have seen so many awesome pics with models all shimmered up and tanned, at the same time the model herself is a nice tan color already so something subtle but visible would be great! The closest i can describe what i am looking for is the look charlize theron had in her Jadore campaign. What do you suggest?
I've been searching for years for a lightweight powder foundation that is light enough for my pale skin tone. The latest I tried was Urban Decay Surreal Skin Mineral Makeup in Illusion and it was too orange and dark, although I loved the way it feels. The closest I've ever been able to find is L'oreal Paris True Match Naturale in Soft Ivory 456/n1-2, but I'm not totally satisfied with it either. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
