Kat Von D's Lock- It Tattoo Foundation Experience. Returns and Exchanges? Suggestion? Help!
I bought Kat Von D's Lock-It Tattoo Foundation around a month ago. In my experience, it dries quickly and leaves me with gross dry patches, plus the coverage fades fast as well. I hate it. I have given it many chances, including trying several different moisturizers and tools to fix my problem (this is why I've kept it as long as I have.) I do still have the original packing and the receipt. I have used it quiet often, but there's still a ton of product left.  Also, what foundation would you suggest to me? I obviously need moisture in my foundation, and would like to have one that won't clog my pores or break me out. Thank you!

What product replaces Bumble and Bumble BB holding spray?
I have always loved Bumble and Bumble BB holding spray. It has been discontinued, and I am hoarding one last little bit of it by using it only for very special occasions. I haven't been able to find another product that works in the same way. Can anyone suggest a replacement for the BB holding spray?

Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide Foundation SHADE
I use the color bamboo beige in LM Silk Foundation which is tad light for me, and I don't know what color I should get for the new LM Smooth Finish Flawless Fluid Foundation. I have a yellow undertone skin, and I'm roughly NC 20-25 in MAC.

Laura Mercier color equivalence- Mineral Powder vs. LM Smooth Finish Foundation Powder
Hi there!   I am looking to try the LM Smooth Finish Foundation Powder but am unsure what color to use. I currently use the Natural Beige in the mineral powder which I find to be just a bit too light as well as the St. Moritz in the tinted moisturizer. There seem to be so many shades listed as Medium with yellow undertones and wasn't sure which would be best.   Thanks!  Aschac

Help = all Plum lipsticks turns hot pink
Every plum lipstick I try turns hot pink - instantly! Every one of them! I'm hazel eyes, fair peachy skin, freckles, strawberry blonde. Does the orange in my skin cancel out the blue in the plum? How do I get plum to look plum on me? I've tried: lip liner with lipstick over it, lip primer, foundation, two plums together. No luck. Help?????

Allergic to Quaternium-15
I have been using Sephora's service for many years! I love the ease to which I can order, the variety and how quickly my products get to me. I've been having a rash on my face for the last 4 years and after 4 years of testing, trying difference creams, meds, biopsy, visits to the dermatologist, I finally saw an Allergist, where I tested allergic to Quaternium-15. It's a commonly (ugh!) used ingredient in most personal care items. Does Sephora or any of the brands you carry, indicate they are free of Quaternium-15 or it's derivitives (such as Formaldehyde, Bronopol, Diazolidinyl urea? Thank you.

Nars Tinted Moisturizer Shade
I just went to Sephora today and purchased the Nars tinted moisturizer in Groenland.  The SA matched me to light 3 which is Groenland.  It looked good in the store.  It still seems ok, but when I got home I read online that that shade is more pinky-peachy and I am totally yellow undertone. I still think it looks good, I tend to look a bit beigy now.   My shade match would be St. Moritz.  Should I just leave well enough alone, or go back and switch.  I know I can try it and they take returns, but i feel guilty returning something I opened.  I was planning on using this under my bare minerals which I use in the light shade.  (in summer i am golden medium) for shade reference.

Compact for touch up with YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat
I need to pick up a compact for my mom who wears YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat in Beige Rose 40.     What would you recommend both for powder to set it with (loose powder?) of a morning and for a compact for touch up on the go?  For her, I'm guessing a compact for touch up is the way to go because it is a lot easier to safely transport in a purse.

Good foundation
Hi, i am in need of a GOOD foundation and am not opposed to trying a high end brand. I currently use the Maybelline FIT ME liquid foundation in number 225... This foundation settles into my fine lines and this is bothersome to me. I am 34, Italian and live in sunny Florida. I take good care of my skin but obviously have natural wrinkles. :-) any suggestions of what type of foundation would be good for me to use and what would be close to the FIT ME 225 that I currently use now.

How can I incorporate strivectin-sd intensive concentrate to my evening beauty routine ???
  Hi ! Just started a new beauty routine this past Thursday which includes the following:   Morning : Origins checks and balance frothy face wash with my boscia sponge (the pink one) Origins plantscription Origins ginzing refreshing eye cream Oririns ginzing energy boosting moisturizer   Evening : Philosophy purity made simple with my boscia sponge Got 2 sample size of Algenist retinol serum (5ml each) which I use as my current night serum. Origins night-a-mins   Once-a-week : I'll use a mask ... I'm currently trying out different ones (Origins clear improvements and all 4 boscias). Really liked the black one from boscia, but I'll try the 4 others before making a decision,   What I would like to know is if I can incorporate Strivectin-SD Intensive concentrate for wrinkles and strech marks to my evening routine. The reason I'm asking is that I just remembered I had a full bottle of this which I got as a present from my boyfriend during my pregnancy to prevent strechmarks and I didn't use it because we were told not to by our Dr. I know I can also use this cream for wrinkles. Can I incorporate this in my evening beauty routine and still use the Algenist serum, or should I stop using the Algenist serum and use plantscription origins serum instead? (I would only use Strivectin on my wrinkles (forehead & crow's feet).   Hope someone can help,   Thanks,

Complimenting lip liner for Dior Addict Bellissima?
I am attending a holiday party soon and I want to find a long lasting lip liner that will compliment the Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick in Bellissima. While I like the idea of a clear liner, I prefer to use pigmented ones for dark or bold colors. What liners would you recommend that will not change the color too much and lasts a long time without drying out my lips? As a side note, I avoid orange reds and most warmer true reds, preferring to go for blue and berry toned reds.

Foundation Issues
I am currently unhappily married to MAC NW 47. And would like to fool around with Kat Von D as I understand she can really show a girl a real good time and NOT be such a PRETTY MESS ON HER DRESS. I am attempting to gathering information on shading/ pigments. When custom blends were all the rage I was in the red/orange family of PRESCRIPTIVES. The Gods saw fit to push me to the MAC side once that was no longer an option. So HELP!!!! Sister in the a Make-Struggle Who Must Stay BEAT.....

Q. How to get rid of laugh lines at 23?
I'm looking for a cream (or other method) that will get rid of my laugh lines. I'm only 23, so I don't want anything too advanced. My face is pretty skinny, which I'm guessing is part of the reason why my laugh lines are more visible than most. I'd like more than just a filler. I'd like something with a more permanent fix. Any suggestions?
