What 2 or 3 Sunday Riley products do you recommend for someone wanting to start a regimen for older skin? I'm especially interested in the oils and a moisturizer.

Hello! So I've recently been trying to find a good foundation for my oily skin especially since the summer months are coming up. I am looking at the Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation Mattifying Oil Free by Hourglassbut while watching some reviews I heard that it tends to cling to your facial hairs which is not very peaking to me; I also heard that it is for mature skin and I am a young lady so I'm not sure if it would work, I do like the fact that everyone said it keeps you completely matte all day. I've also been looking at the tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour full coverage liquid foundation but I've heard that does control oil. I've also looked I to the NARS sheer glow but don't think that would be suitable for my skin type. I am a cruelty free consumer and need some help, do you think the Hourglass foundation would work for me?

What is a good nail colour for older hands?  I am in my 60s.  I know that skin colour is important (I am fair in colour).  Also - I need to have the colour look 'professional'.  Dark colours make my hands look older and light colours make me look like I am trying to be a "young wanna be". I have looked at the hands of other older women and haven't seen a colour that I really like yet.  Thank-you

Hi ladies   I need a hair styling tool mostly for curling. I have fine and straight hair with medium thickness. My hair does not hold style easily, even with the use of products. Also I have never invested into a good tool, its about time I do so. I have been looking into the instyler or the t3 twirl 360. If you have experience of either of these or any suggestion for a good styling tool, please let me know. Thanks!

I have several non-peel facial mask products that say to leave on for X-minutes and then tissue off .  What kind of tissue do they mean?  Certainly not the Kleenex-type nose tissues.  I've seen some discussions about oil-blotting tissue, (wrapping) tissue paper, or rice paper or other oil blotting papers, and even toilet seat covers (!).    But I've never seen anything that expressly addresses what to use for these masks.  Is there a product out there without powder in them, or are we suppose to make our own?  Thanks!

I am in my mid 30s and I decided to splurge on the Premier Cru eye cream from Caudalie because I love the line, but unfortunately, it caused me to have milia under both eyes within a week's use and I had to stop using it. I do not have any wrinkles yet, so I want to use a good preventative eye cream to preserve my skin. Overall, my skin is oily around t-zone and combination on other parts of the face. Should I buy the Cauldalie Vinoexpert serum for the eyes and use it on its own AM and PM without any eye cream? Or should I buy the Vinosource SOS eye cream which seems much lighter than the Premiere Cru? I am also open to trying other lines as long as the product is paraben free and comes in a tube or pump, no jar. Please advise. Thanks!

Hey BT! I've been reading a bit about heated eyelash curlers and I'm starting to see a couple of people mention them on youtube. Has anyone here tried using one? If so, which one did you use? I've seen a couple of them sold by Sephora and then heard of others on the market as well. I've never been good with a typical eyelash curler and am wondering if this is something that could work for me.    Also, has there been any information about how safe they are? I am just wondering how safe something that is heated can be held that close to your eye.    Any insight anyone has would be greatly appreciated!

Hello,   I'm wondering what people use to carry their Beauty Blenders when traveling? I'm currently using a case I found at Muji that fits the BB pretty well, but the last time I travelled, I forgot to unpack it right away when I got back, and my BB got moldy.     Interested to see what travel storage solutions people have for this particular item since it needs to be wet.   Thank you!

I am not a sensitive skin person and never have this problem before. Lately I have been getting a burning feeling after using all kind of moisturizers (FAB, origins, etc.). I mean FAB is supposed to sooth my skin. Can someone tell me why?

Can anyone tell me what color should I get in Tarte's amazon class 12 hour makeup if I use Laura Mercier's Silk Creme Foundation in Cashew Beige

I was looking at Cover FX drops, but need less steps as a busy new mom. My color IQ of 3Y06 matched me to Laura M Silk Creme Oil free in Beige Ivory, but that's light with neutral to warm undertones. Interesting, because in person, most pros think I'm cool undertone. I was sampled Rose Ivory and it's so pink and light. I prefer a neutral finish and was wondering if Bamboo Beige would be light enough?

So i've been looking to get some new products because I feel like my serum was doing absolutely nothing and I just need to add a good mask. I was thinking about REN, particularly the Radiance Perfection Serum and the Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask. I went into sephora today and the BA that helped me was very nice but pretty much every product she pushed me towards was Caudalie and I actually noticed that most of the customers were being helped with Caudalie products, there were stations everywhere (I have a feeling this had something to do with Mathilde Thomas being in the store) she recommended the Cauda lie Vinosource S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum  and the Caudalie Glycolic Peel. I feel like anytime I tried to ask about comparing the two I couldn't get much of an answer. I know Caudalie is a good brand but I figured I would go to the boards!   Little background on my skin... it's pretty crappy. Dry skin, finally getting over cystic acne that decided not to affect me until I hit 21 i'm now 24, dark marks due to the acne, dealing with few bumpy clogged pores on my cheek and lastly fine lines on the forehead.   Anyway, any opinions on these products? Has anyone used one or both and did you like one better than the other? What kind of results did you see? Thanks!

I been debating on whether to  purchase a Tria, Silk'n or an Iluminage. I always go to the spa and get my Brazilian laser hair removal, but it cost near the amount of a device for just one time. I'm use to the pain, and I always get amazing results since I'm an ideal candidate.  What are the differences between these devices and which one would be better for the dark hair and an olive skin tone? Which one would be ideal for just the bikini area and underarm area? Any answers would be great. Thanks!

Hello, I'm 34 with fairly normal skin. It used to be oily but has changed in past few years to normal (and VERY slightly sensitive, though not enough to really be a concern.) What I'm looking for is something to address my under-eye wrinkles which have developed in the past year. I've had forehead wrinkles for quite some time but recently saw lines looking like crows feet and some wrinkling that goes from under eye are to top of cheeks. It's kind of hard to explain, sorry! I also have a lot of dark spots from sun damage. I have used retinols and glycolic acids on & off infrequently over the past 10 years, as well as light moisturizers. What I've used so far in the past 2 years to address my current issues have not worked well: Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu brightening mask (great hydration but did nothing for my dark spots and wrinkles) Philosophy renewed hope in a jar: did not minimize wrinkles at all, Ole Henriksen 3 little wonders: making my under eye area VERY dry and seeming to deepen the wrinkles there. Long story short, I need something to hydrate my under-eye area and give me anti-aging benefits, and would love a multi-tasking product for my dark spots as well. Any suggestions are welcome and thank you so much for reading my long post!

I am trying to find skincare products to get my mom for Mother's Day and have no idea where to start. She is 43 years old, her skin is normal and she has sun spots/damage. Her skincare regimen as of now is cleanser, moisturizer (philosophy's hope in a jar) and sunblock if needed. I'm looking for products with anti-aging properties but nothing that will make her oily.

OK so when I was small my hair and brows were the same color, a pretty much white-blond. My hair has changed into a more golden blond but my brows ...still clear and the hairs are very fine. I've tried to find the right color/ formula to make it look like I haven't bleached them away but they never look natural. I'm really at a loss...what should I use?

I found my color iq by using the foundation from Sephora 10 hr foundation in delicate beige (p) which gave me the color iq 1R03. The color matches good but is not long wearing and I hate that it transfers so much. I want to get the Smashbox studio skin 15 hr foundation. I have heard it's a great foundation for summer and I really want it but nothing comes up when I put in the color iq 1R03. Please help me find the best color for me in that foundation so I can order it online tomorrow.

I have battled severe acne for many years and I finally have it under control. However now I have hyper-pigmentation and some pretty deep acne scars. I have used Dr Brandt's exfoliator and it has been a miracle worker for the hyper-pigmentation, however I'm in search of a product or products that can help with the scarring. I also have a lot of overall redness, especially around the eyes. I guess just looking for something to help take care of the scarring and overall brightening. Anything suggestions are helpful!

I just purchased the Bobbi Brown cream long-wear eyeshadow. I don't like powder but the long wear is TOO inflexible. I want to be able to put it on and then use my finger or a brush to smudge or change it. Is there a cream or gel shadow that does NOT need the heavy duty eye makeup remover to take off? I don't want it to be super permanent.

Hey there.   I'm on the market for a new foundation. My T-zone gets super oily and then my makeup slides around and that's not cute. I use an oil control primer and a setting spray so that's not the issue I don't think. I try blotting with sheets or powder, but when it's so oily - sometimes it just all comes off or it cakes instead and it just makes it worse.   I have enjoyed Estée Lauder Double Wear and Double Wear Light, but sometimes I really don't like how...plastic-y it feels on my face. Even when applied lightly with a Beauty Blender instead of a brush it still feels that way. With summer coming up, I don't know if I can handle it.   Other foundations that I have tried that feel nice on my face but don't hold up to the grease pool currently in my graveyard include: Clinique Superbalanced Lioele Triple the Solution BB Cream Benefit Hello Flawless Clarins Ever Matte Sephora Teint Infusion Clinique Even Better Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Makeup Forever Matte Velvet+ Stila Natural Finish Lioele Dollish BB Cream Skin79 hot pink BB Cream And I'm sure there's more I've tried but I don't have.   Got any suggestions? Willing to budget whatever as long as it will work well.   Or is there anything maybe I could mix with the Estée Lauder to alter the texture?   Thanks!
