Do I still receive the perks of VIB Rouge if I don't have the card?
So technically I should be VIB Rouge now as I just made my $37 purchase to reach the $1000 mark. Though they were out of the VIB Rouge "kits". The lady at the till said I still get my perks but I'm on the fence here. She was fine with bidding me farewell without a mention of my VIB Rouge status until I brought it up when she expected me to leave. I really didn't get a chance to ask too many questions.  So if I booked a makeover would that be treated as VIB or VIB Rouge? I'd explain the situation to them though and hopefully they'd have the kit and I'd receive my card. I'm not too concerned about the other perks at this moment. I honestly just want to see my favourite SA before the break ends....and pay day isn't till after. What I'm basically asking is if I don't have the VIB Rouge card could I still book a free makeover if I have met the requirements to achieve VIB Rouge?

Serum for my 20 something, combo skin?
I'm 22 with a pension for hormonal acne, but in general pretty combo skin. I use a clarisonic with the clarisonic acne wash, but i'm looking for a serum at night to moisturize/maybe provide some early/light anti-aging benefits (not a HUGE priority, but in the back of my mind!). Basically just looking for your average serum for combo skin to help with moisture and acne.

Sun Damaged Skin/Enlarged Pores at 18 years old?
The past two spring breaks/summers I didn't wear very much sunscreen. I went to Florida two springs ago, got a sunburn on my face... peeling later. I then went to the beach that summer... and burned my face pretty badly again. Then last spring break, I went to Puerto Rico and got a blistering sun burn on my face. I have never blistered before and determined that it was from the doxycycline that my dermatologist had prescribed for my acne. They told me I just needed to wear sunscreen and never said anything else. If I had known how much doxycycline makes you sensitive, I would have never gone out in the sun at all! That burn left me with lines under my eyes and hyper pigmentation on random parts of my body that I missed with sunscreen (stripe on my leg and arms). So basically I have vowed to never get sunburn/tan again! However, I am left with enlarged pores and oily skin on my face... I was always oily but to me my pores are bigger... or I might just be over analyzing. But seriously if anyone has a similar situation and/or suggestions on what would help that would be great. Is it too late to fix pores?

What do you get when you achieve VIB Rouge?
I know about the free shipping, VIB Rouge events, the free makeovers, etc. But do you get anything upfront when you get your VIB Rouge status? Like when I reached VIB I was given a free makeover card and a 10% off discount on a later purchase. Do you get another discount card? One of my friends mentioned a lipstick, but she doesn't know for sure.

Q. the blush challenge -- when ruddy skin tends to dominate
Hi All, I have ruddy skin and while I can go ahead and use my own redness for blush... I do not want to do that! I use Fusion Ink -- awesome -- which rids me of most of the my ruddiness. I was wondering what color blush and brand would be a fun try for someone who has brown eyes, normally wears dark eyeshadow and liner. I have pinks.. but seriously for the most part...pretty BORING.
