Mascara Recommendation
I would love mascara recommendations for dry sensitive eyes. I typically wear Clinique High Impact Mascara, but I think I may have developed an allergy to it. Any recommendations and/or feedback from your personal experience would be wonderful.   (FYI I have worn Clinique High Impact Mascara for year because it does an awesome job with lengthening and thickening...not because it is dermatologist tested. It really is an awesome mascara.)

Skin Issues. HELP!!!
Okay I have a problem, I've just started to notice that my underage circles make me look extremely tired. I don't have bags but dark circles. How do I get rid of them or at least hid them. I'm only 18 by the way.    I'm also having problems with acne around my chin area is there something I can use to get rid of this? I have an interview at a store and want to look good!!   Please Help!!

Need replacement for Philosophy's A to Z cream in Light
Hello,    I have been using Philosophy's A to Z cream in Light for a long time and it is perfect for me - I have sensitive, dry, very pale skin and this was the only cream that blended well with my coloring, didn't dry me out, and did not irritate my skin. I need something comparable asap since I can no longer find this cream in the Light shade. Please help!

Eyeshadow & liner recommendations
Change to Sunday Riley "Start Over" Packaging, Formula?
I just received my order of Sunday Riley's "Start Over" eye treatment. I've used the product before and my last bottle reads "Active Eye Cream" but this new one reads "Active Eye Gel Cream."  Does anyone know if this is the same product? Have they changed the formula? The packaging is different from my old one (bought in January) so I was wondering if it is the same.  Thanks!

Smashbox eye shape recmmendations
Ok, so I have been looking around at new ideas for eye makeup When googling, I came across the smashbox eye shape recommendations, which seem pretty popular. I had always believed my eyes were round, so I tried their round recommendations. I got a bit frustrated since these recommendations are clearly for people who do NOT have prominent lids (I have prominent lids). Everything is VERY light with little eyeliner, and I was looking washed out. Last night I came across the video they have for determining eye shape and now they say I have one almond eye and one downturned eye. Thinking that the downturned eye needs the most help I went with those recommendations for day, but the wash out issue is way worse, since in their opinion people with downturned lids should use even less liner. Has anyone else had this issue? When I look at the videos, the concepts seem great, but in real life it just doesn't seem to work.

Makeup and Skincare for Retin A Users
What skincare products would you recommend using to help combat the flaky skin caused by the Retin A Micro 0.08% Gel? Also, my derm has me using Onexton (3.75% Benzyl Peroxide/clydamycin phosphate) every morning for acne which also causes dryness and irritation. Morning Routine: Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Foaming Face Wash Simple Toner Onexton Neutrogena Healthy Skin Moisturizer spf 50 Night Routine: Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Foaming Face Wash Simple Toner Retin A Micro 0.08% Gel (After 20 min Every Other Night until May) Cerave Pm Moisturizer (45 min after Retin A)   ... Also what makeup products would you recommend for this? I usually have really oily skin and own mostly dryer, thick foundations.

HELP YSL Matt and Radiance Pressed Powder
I was in search of a great setting powder and I always do my research. I ended up buying the YSL Matte and Radiance Pressed Powder. I have used it twice and I don't see a big difference after applying it and definitely not in keeping me matte. It was my high end splurge and I am disappointed. Has anyone tried it and have any suggestions of how to use it? I tried it with the puff that comes with it and a powder brush. I kind of pat it on after foundation.

Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X vs Silk'n Flash&Go™ Freedom™ Hair Removal?
I'm interested in purchasing one of these devices. But I'm stuck on which one to buy. My goal is to use it on my legs, armpits and arms. I hear the Tria is small and takes more time to do larger areas, and that the charge only lasts 40 minutes. Though I hear the device works better in terms of hair removal. Also I hear the Silk'n one is more ideal for larger areas since it's bigger but it requires a longer time period to yield results. I'd like to hear the opinions and views of others in terms of which device is better. And if there are any cons in either or, whether it's a risk or simply a flaw that might not make it as ideal as one would like. Thanks in advance.

Saw Wayne Goss rave about this MUFE Primer!
http://www.makeupforever.com/int/en-int/make-up/fa ce/primer/step1   Is that the same primer as the MUFE HD Microperfecting Primer that we already have in the states?    http://www.sephora.com/hd-microperfecting-primer-P 217906?skuId=1097153   Even tho the one Wayne showed is in a different tube and is called Step 1 Equalizer it seems to have the same shades and descriptions as the original primer. Just curious!

Professional Skin Care Reviews besides Paula's Choice?
I have been under a dermatologists care all my life and have highly reactive sensitive skin and have to be really careful as to what I use. I am completely dependent on Paula's Choice and I won't use anything that doesn't get a BEST review from her site. She's never done me wrong as my skin is in excellent condition.    However I am still a beauty junkie and like to try new products sometimes and it does take a while for her to get new products reviewed and she also can't get everything.    Does anyone know of another website that does in depth product reviews?    I need to to replace my Boscia night cream that just ran out. I love it, it's worked flawlessly for me but I'm itching to try something new.

Lip Pencil- Full Lips?
I've heard using a nude color or shimmer lip pencil could make your lips bigger. Anyone else heard this or have any recommendations?   I've tried color lip pencils in the past and cant seem to either patch the lip pencil color to lipstick or the pencil line looks obvious.
