Very dry skin! Please Help!
My skin has suddenly become very dry.  I'm using the anti-aging eye balm and moisturizer by Algenist and a sample of Geurlain's Lingerie foundation.  The foundation seems to be a huge improvement from what I was using but I am still struggling with the dry skin, especially around my eye area.    Any suggestions on a serum and eye cream? (I'm allergic to linalool. ) Also, would Nars' Sheer Glow foundation be better for my dry skin versus the Guerlain foundation that I am thinking about purchasing?   thank you for your help!

Make Up Forever Full Coverage Concealer HELP!
I need help! I went in to a Sephora store and was matched up to the Make Up Forever Full Coverage Concealer in Dark Beige #12. It looked great inside the store but in natural light, it still seems a bit dark. I am using it to cover a small tattoo on my arm. The color is very close, but it makes my arm look like I have a bruise on it. I would like to order it in a shade lighter, but I am not sure if I should go with Golden Beige #10, or Beige #8. Will the golden beige #10 be too yellowish? Will the beige #8 be too light?  Suggestions?

Still Having Problems with Lipstick Application :(
I made a post last week about need a solution to my lipstick application problems but nothing is working still. I took mostly everyones advice and it still isn't working. Every time I put on lipstick it still 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. Is there anything else I can do?

Concealer for Pigmenation
So I'm having trouble deciding which product to buy and I was wondering if you guys could give me a hand. I'm of indian heritage with a fairly dark skin tone (for reference just google Freido Pinto- basically the same colour as her), and I have pretty bad pigmentation from waxing and threading my upperlip constantly (basically a 5 o'clock shadow), as well as dark acne scars.    I was wondering which product would best help me cover up the pigmentation/5 o'clock shadow because apparently they both work: the makeup forever corrective camouflage concealer palette (the one with darker shades including  the orange corrective shade), or the makeup forever full cover extreme camouflage cream.    I can't afford both, but I was thinking that the orange corrective shade would be better considering my pigmentation is pretty bad but I'm really not sure.    Thanks in advance!

Tria Beauty At-Home Age Defying Laser
Happy Sunday, everyone!   QVC's today's special value (TSV) is this device today. I am 38yo, fair to light, and I have combination, sensitive, acne-prone skin. I am especially sensitive to anything win fragrance.   I used the NuFace Trinity device, and it definitely did provide a lift, but it wasn't a terribly pleasant experience. It also irritated my skin a bit. I returned it.   i am intrigued by the Tria TSV. I would like it for fine lines and evening out the texture of my skin.    has anyone used this? Did it work? How does it compare to dermie office fraxel treatments, or, I guess, does it even compare?   thank you for any guidance!

Skincare line WITHOUT soy ingredients for sensitive skin ?
I have mature, sensitive skin, prone to redness, broken capillaries, large pores.  My oncologist told me to not use products containing soy.  Can anyone suggest some products for cleansing, moisturizing and treating my skin issues that do not contain soy products?  I was looking at the First Aid line but could not tell if it contained soy.

Microdermabrasion/Exfoliant Scrub Recommendations
Hi all, I recently got a deluxe sample of the Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant and really liked it, but at $78 it's a bit more than my budget can afford to purchase the full size. I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for microdermabrasion/exfoliating scrubs that are similar, but not as pricey? Some of the other scrubs I'm considering are the Bliss MicroMagic, the Fresh Soy Face Exfoliant, or Bliss Pore Perfecting Face Polish. Has anyone tried those or have any other products to recommend? Thanks!

Recommendations for nighttime moisturizer or cream?
I would like a product that is $50 or under. I have oily acne-prone skin so something that is hypoallergenic, perhaps natural, and oil free would be great. The main obstacle for me trying to search for a good night cream is that I want to find something that has healing power to deal with acne scarring, current acne, and healing acne. Thanks!

Has Anyone Tried HUM Nutrition?
Most of the supplements from HUM have high ratings on this site, but I'm wondering if anyone has tried any of them? They're pretty new on here and I usually take the reviews here with a grain of salt. In general, I don't sit on either side of the fence when it comes to supplements and if they work or not. I'd love to hear anyone's experience with these - favorable or not so much. Although I'm interested in most of them, I'm particularly intrigued by the Runway Ready set and the Daily Cleanse.

Living Proof Prime Style Extender SPRAY..
Can the Living Proof Prime Style Extender SPRAY be used on dry hair? I normally was my hair at night and when I curl my hair the next day they fall like a few hours later and that isn't going to help when i'm starting Cosmetology school and its a 7 1/2 hour school day and then i have to work. So can i put the Prime Style Extender balm or gel whatever it is in my hair at night before blow drying and then in the morning use the Prime Style Extender SPRAY before curling? I have long thick hair and I need my curls to last and not fall out 2 hours later so it looks like I didn't do anthing

not happy with makeover at sephora
I feel bad even writing this...and I'm not trying to offend any of the girls that work for Sephora. I just want to know if anyone else has had a bad experience with a makeover at Sephora. I went there yesterday for foundation, concealer and blush. She offered to try some products on me. I don't know if it was her or the lighting, but the concealer she had used (becca creamy concealer) was SO ORANGE on my skin. I am super pale, and I don't know why she thought it looked good. Then she tried a MUFE concealer under my eyes, and it was ghostly and all you could see was my purple bags. Next we moved on to foundation, and she still couldn't get a color right. So now I am totally clues as to what skin tone/IQ I am :-( A little disappointing. Do you know if they take makeup training classes like MAC does, or is it just basic application? Thanks for any feedback.
