Hi everyone,   I am in my late 20s and looking to invest in a good anti-aging face oil. I have dry, dehydrated skin and I just want to incorporate something in my routine that can fight skin stressors and maintain the health of the skin for a while. In general, I do have a decent skincare routine in place now.   I was trying to choose between: Caudalie Premier Cru serum/oil, Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex and Sunday Riley Juno.   I would appreciate it a lot if you gals that have tried any of these would share your experiences and help me make a decision.   Thanks!

I'm told the only way to get rid of these "folds" is to have something called PRP or Fraxel.  Is there another way?  Is there a product on the shelves that would make this less invasive?

I have sensitive combo skin, and have a few fine lines. I've always assumed that a Clarisonic would do more harm than good as the bristles looked harsh to use on skin, and I've read mixed reviews on whether or not chemical or physical exfoliators are best. Can anyone share their opinion on them, or any recommendations?

What are the best products to use? I normally have oily acne prone skin, so I use products to help with that. But then I end up with my makeup looking dry & flaky...

  I have caramel colored skin (I do have the smashbox foundation liquid halo in no.7 just to give an idea). And I get oily skin in the hot weather and I do have acne scarring and partially sun burnt skin mostly on forehead and chin and the upper part of my nose. My main problem is finding the right foundation that doesn't give the translucent effect so that you don't see the scarring and that can last most of the day and feels light! Also that looks very natural on my skin. I do have a tad bit larger pores that are visible from close up and that gets a little bumpy in the hot weather. I don't have anymore acne or pimples just scars that are slightly prominent. Please help me on this it's really a problem. I really want something that makes my skin look lighter and fair and match my skin tone of my neck that is about 3-4 shades lighter. Thank you!

Hi, I just noticed that there's just 2 products left in Dr. Jart.  Is Sephora phasing it out?  I love Premium BB cream and there's just a few left in the darker shade.  I need the lightest shade!  Please continue carrying this brand!

I don't have a Sephora close to me so I usually buy online. I know it's hard to buy foundation that way but I'm looking to buy the new Marc Jacobs Remarcable Foundation . I'm not sure what shade to get. I have fair skin and I was recently matched to MUF's Ultra HD in shade 117 Marble. What shade would be the best match in the Marc Jacobs? Bisque Medium or go with a lighter shade? 
Ask The Experts
I'm looking for a finishing spray or a facial mist/toner that I can also use after makeup application. I already have the skindinavia setting spray, but I don't use that everyday because of the alcohol content, so basically I just want something to make my makeup appear less powdery/more blended on days when I choose not to use a setting spray. There seem to be so many options that I'm not sure what to try.  I have combination to dry skin.  I am also very sensitive to fragrance.  Any recommendations would be appreciated!

My jacklyn hill highlighter has a dent in it . It just came in the mail today what can I do ?

Okay, so I am looking to build my own matte eye shadow palette. I first noticed the Buxom Customizable Eyeshadow Bar Palette and fell in LOVE with the mattes. They are SO pretty. Especially the two mauves! I really like the pastel peach and pink, terracotta, and greige as well. I feel like this is a steal because you do get 6 colors and the compact for $40! But, I know how AMAZING the MUFE eye shadows are and that they are def 'must-gets'. MUFE does have eye shadows similar to the Buxom ones I loved. So has anyone tried the Buxom matte shades? if so, how do they compare to MUFE? Should I go for it with the Buxom palette or skip it and grab MUFE?

I don't usually use SPF products unless they come in my foundation. I don't spend hours upon hours outdoors so I never really felt the need to wear SPF.   I'm going to be spending the day at the waterpark next week and I know that I seriously need some SPF or I'll be red like a tomato, no joke. I plan on buying a bottle of L'Oreal Ombrelle to use on my body, probably with an SPF of 30-45. I'm not sure if this is good to use on my face, I don't want it to break me out and I'm not sure if I'll be wearing makeup yet, I guess it depends on how hot it is and if I really want to deal with the maintenance of it while wet. I might just slap on my Too Faced BB cream which has SPF20.   I do have a sample of the Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield that I got with my last order so I was thinking of using this, either under my makeup or alone. Is this a good product and will my makeup go on smoothly?   Is there anything that's better that I should buy (specifically for my face)? It needs to be somewhat waterproof and have good lasting power. Keep in mind that I'm in Canada so there are certain brands I won't be able to order from Sephora.   And lastly, what waterproof basic makeup products do I need?

The last time I went to Sephora I was matched to the Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet + Mattifying Foundation in the shade 67 Warm Amber- Golden Chesnut ( Color IQ 3Y09). I found the shade to be just right but it still seemed a bit too orange for me, as opposed to yellow. Any suggestions on a  foundation with more yellow under tones? Please help!

I'm trying to decide on which shade I should get from this line. Aiming for towards Shell or Nude. I'm an NC25 in Mac, Nars: Alaska for winter and St. Moritz for summer. In Giorgio Armani Luminous silk, I use 4.5. Can anybody help? I called into Hourglass and that was no help whatsoever although the rep was very nice.

My new love is taupe lips...undertones more in the lilac or grey world than the more brown versions.  But I'm finding blush hard.  And I learned (via a MAC SA) how to wear those deep, almost black lip shades (the right blush and a little black eye liner).  Certain looks are harder to make work than others.  What tips do you have for those less simple colors and looks...that make them work?  So other examples are purple or lilac lips...the blush has to be cool with a blue or purple undertone.  Too much pastel and I need some black shadow in the crease and/or black eye liner.  So...how do you pull off taupe lips and other less than easy to balance looks?

So, I've been looking back at this picture for quite a while now. My question is: How you do make your eyes look that expressive with just eyeshadows?!  I'd love to know how to achieve this, technique wise. And, since I know the eyeshadows' color play a big role in the look too, I'd appreciate some product recommendations too.
