I love the Dior Forever Powder however when the product is nearing the end it crumbles and the compact itself breaks on the hinge.  This is the 3rd time I've purchased it, it has happened every time. Although I love the powder the packaging has left me frustrated.  If I wear the 030, what would I wear in the Dolce and Gabbana Foundation Powder Compact, am thinking of giving it a try.

Okay so I've been having some problems blending out my shadow. They just aren't a dream to blend. I'm also lacking a few good basics. I'm looking for a great palette that has awesome basics, blends easily, and as good transational colors that work well with almost any color. Nothing to cool or warm. I don't mind if it had a couple.non neutral colors. Any suggestions please??? Thanks for your help!

I am confused about the differences between (Shiseido) WrinkleResist24 Balancing Softener Enriched and (Shiseido) Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Balancing Softener. I don't know which one should I get.

Hey guys!  I'm hitting close to pan on this blush (i've had it for YEARS).  Sin from Illamasqua was discontinued sometime in mid to late 2000's but i'm holding on to hope that I can find something as close to it as possible.  I thought I had a couple but they don't quite have the same impact.  I was looking at Marc Jacob's new blush line but the one I was eyeing was more magenta.  I tried Temptalia and they don't even have a record of it, LOL!  So, HELP!

I loved her perfume line (was a bit disappointed that Saint Angeles was only released as a roller ball) and was wondering with the release of her new lipsticks, would she release a new perfume?

I have super oily skin, and I hate that by lunch my makeup is pretty much melted off.I have a few big events coming up and I want to look my very best for them and not have to worry about reapplying multiple times. I would like something with staying power that has pretty decent coverage because I do have blemishes on my chin. thanks so much!

Should I spend the $48 or is there a similar foundation from another brand that is less expensive? Thank you!

Hi, Looking for an all-in-one eye product that helps dark circles as well as PTR Power K, but is more moisturizing. The PTR actually seems to dry the area out more. Had an allergic reaction to Clinique All About Eyes, so please don't reco that one! :-)

I have some older UD lip liners (they were never opened and I just started using them again) in Bruise and Roach. I've tried to find similar colors, but am having no luck! Is anyone familiar with UD enough to remember these? Can you suggest a replacement for me?  I've tried Aqua Lips and Bare Escentuals, but neither worked for me. Help? I'm going to run out and I love the color/consistency of Urban Decay. And they don't have any colors like these anymore! Makeup addict problems!!!

Hello! I am new to using blush and have purchased quite a few. I like the matte look more since shimmery shades make my huge pores stand out more. The problem is...I've got very oily skin, so I use an oil-free lotion, then a matte foundation on top and a light dusting of loose powder to set. By the time I apply the Tarte blush, my face looks so flat. I don't know if I am applying it wrong (my face is oval so i'm not 100% on where to place it) or should I be using different products? Maybe a liquid highlighter underneath? I'm so confused and have spent lots of $ trying to get a good combo down. Thanks for your help!

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'm having so many problems with lipstick application. Every time I put on lipstick it always settles into my lip lines. I prime my lips with the Bite Beauty Lip Primer and then I line my lips with a lip liner and apply my lipstick of choice and it still settles into my lip lines. I exfoliate my lips but it still doesn't help. What can I do to stop this from happening? Please help.

I have "hard water" at home and it dries out my hair. No matter how much or how long I leave my conditioner in, it seem that my hair is so dry. It frizzes and also creates a lot of split ends. I do not use any heat for my hair (hairdryer, curler, straightener, etc).   What shampoo should I be using to help with this?

I use mainly Perricone products, I am 46 and I do think my skin is in good condition, I take really good care of it.   My morning routine is a toner and serium (not Perricone), cold plasma face all over, neuropeptide eye cream, formula 15 on my forehead only, and a moisurizer for oily skin ( I used to use skin clear, which I loved but it's no longer available).  My question is do I need to be using the formula 15?   I feel I should be using something with retinol at my age, should I use another Perricone product?

I got my color IQ done and was matched with Urban Decay Naked foundation #4. I love the product! Now I need a really great concealer to go with it. I prefer a tube and not a stick, and my skin is somewhat sensative. It will be used for under eye cirlces ane the occasional blemish. I have used Lancome's Effarneces (sp?) for years and am ready to change it up. Thanks!

Hello all!    I just started a new skincare routine. Previously I was using drugstore face wash, and moisturizer, and had pretty good skin other than a pimple here and there.    Now I've changed over to using a clarisonic the past month (haven't noticed much of a difference at all), as well as starting a new line of skincare from Ole Henrikson just over a week ago. I love the products, but I've been breaking out slightly on my cheeks, and around my chin. and my skin seems like it MIGHT be getting smoother.    I have normal skin, with the occasional pimple/s.    My question is-- When starting a new skincare routine, is it normal for my skin not to be at its best? Everyone is so divided on "purging" but maybe when you do a complete overhaul such as this, things are different? Do I have to break in the products, or is this line probably just not for me?    I know Sephora has a great return policy, but I'd be very embarrassed to return a whole skincare line... and I want to love these products.    Any advice/opinions are welcome.    What I'm using currently:  Clarisonic for Men (normal brush head) (Use 1-2x a day)  Ole African Red Tea Foaming face wash Ole Truth Serum  Ole Youth Activating Oil Ole Invigorating Night Gel  Ole Sheer Transformation Moisturizer   Twice a week the Ole Walnut Scrub and Lemon Strip Peel   Thanks in advance ladies and gentlemen!  Spoiler (Highlight to read)

I tried out the bare minerals matte foundation and just fell in love with it! It looked like there was no makeup on my skin and yet it covered up any imperfections I had. This has made me want to try out the starter kit they have to see if the addition of products such as the mineral veil and the concealer make that big of a difference but they don't have golden medium in their starter kit selections. Which one should I purchase? Thank you so much your help!

Hi BT, I'm not really sure between Tinted Moisturizer and BB cream helps nursing skin like skin care does? Are there any benefits we get from using tinted moisturizer or BB cream? Thank you
