I'm looking to buy a lot of makeup for my friend, but since he has an aesthetic going on with his makeup, id like to only buy makeup that comes in pastel packaging, preferably pastel pink. Currently all i know to get is the Too Faced SweetPeach palette and the Babylicious brush set. Do you know of any makeup brands with packaging that fits that description?

Hello,   I purchased the Fresh Seaberry cleansing oil a few months ago and loved it. I'm about halfway through the bottle, and when I went to wash my face tonight, I noticed there were...globules? in the bottle. I'm sorry to sound gross, I don't know how else to describe it, it looked like there was mucous in the bottle.   Ive never opened the bottle, it's well insulated from light? What might this be?

Hey y'all,    I've had acne since I was a teen and am still struggling with it as a 26-year old. I used to be on topical medications but switched to a pill called spironolactone a little less than a year ago. It's been a life saver and I've been able to stop using my prescription topical creams.   However, because spiro cleared up my skin tremendously and because I am also a Sephora employee, I've been experimenting with new skincare. I recently broke out horribly after using a combination of the Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Gel and Josie Maran's spf 47 moisturizer (I used Ole's night treatment for almost three weeks without breakouts until I incorporated Josie's sunscreen, which broke me out immediately). I've since stopped using both because my skin was aggravated and dry, on top of breaking out.   Since I've stopped using these two products, I incorporated Sunday Riley's UFO oil into my night routine. I love that this doesn't dry my skin out and has a BHA. I've been using this for roughly 5 nights and while my acne is beginning to get less and less, I still have a few new pimples that pop up every other day or so.   Here is my current routine: AM - Exuviance Antibacterial Moisturizing Face Cleanser -First Aid Beauty Vitamin Mist as a toner -Josie Maran Argan Whipped Face Butter  *days without makeup I use Supergoop's Mineral Sunscreen in place of the argan face butter, otherwise I use a BB cream w/spf as my "foundation"    PM - Exuviance Antibacterial Moisturizing Face Cleanser (sometimes I use First Aid Beauty's Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser if breakouts are horrible) - Sunday Riley U.F.O. oil - Josie Maran Argan Whipped Face Butter   My skin is combination oily with most oil in the t-zone and cheeks and dryness where my acne occurs which is along my jawline, lower cheeks, and neck. I am also sensitive.   I am hoping for a recommendation on a potentially new or improved skincare routine based on these concerns. My biggest concerns are acne and small white bumps of texture. Otherwise, my skin is fortunately pit-free as I never picked my acne too much!   I do also prefer a cruelty-free skincare routine <3

I currently use Bobbi Brown's Tinted Eye Brightener in Light Bisque. This is a perfect match as my under eye concealer, and I love this product. Unfortunately it has been discontinued and I am looking for a new under eye concealer whose shade, consistency, and appearance can recreate the natural look I get with Bobbi Brown's Tinted Eye Brightener.I have tried Bobbi Brown's Serum Concealers and Correctors which the brand recommended, but I was extremely unhappy with this recommendation in both the shade and appearance.Any brands and/or shade recommendations to replace this product would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I also have allergies to Propolis (anything from a beehive- ie;bees wax, honey) sunflower and fragrance. Am I totally out of luck?

Hey beauties. Okay so i have a huge problem. So my skin is completely crazy. I have acne prone skin, my pimples dont get huge but you can notice them, i have so many acne scars too.

I have strawberry blonde hair, hazel (mostly green) eyes, and fair skin (Kat Von D lock it foundation in 44 during the winter.. not sure what my summer color is) and I need help finding a a bronzer that isn't too dark or shimmery, blush that isn't too orangy peach or too pink, and a self tanner for my face and neck that isn't too dark or too orange.  Also, I haven't worn eye shadow in forever because the purple and green colors people usually recommend are always too dark for my comfort. Any suggestions? Preferably specific colors because it's difficult for me to get to a Sephora location so I shop online. Thank you!!!

Hi all, recently I've discovered that silicone and talc both wreak havoc on my face and I end up with terrible breakouts. I've been using a great silicone free primer from clarins but now I'm on the hunt for a foundation to fit my needs. Does anyone have a recommendation for something that is both silicone and talc free? I've tried the Laura Mercier Moisture Supreme but it made me really oily by the end of the day. I also tried Bare Minerals but they don't have a good color match for my skin tone. My skin is sensitive, acne prone, and combination leaning more towards the oily side. Thanks!

Hi there! I'm looking for an individual contouring powder that is comparable to the darkest shade on the Smashbox step-by-step Contour Kit Light/Medium.  I only use the darkest shade in that kit, so it is a waste for me to keep buying it. Can you recommend something?  Thank you!

I am looking for a really good primer for oily, acne prone skin and large pores, it needs to hide pores and make skin flawless. Also information on a pairing concealer and setting powder would be wonderful.   I have tried a few and I haven't liked any.. Tried Smashbox and most recently clinique superprimer. it is awful so sad about that

Hi, I've been reading up on the boards and google, but haven't quite found the answer to my question based on my skin type. I'm looking for a primer that will extend the lasting power of my make up. I use LM Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer on an everyday basis and I'm specifically looking for something that's long lasting . I also finish with UD all-nighter.    I've used Smashbox Photo Finish (liked but haven't tried in a couple of years, didn't notice a huge difference in lasting power), and Hourglass Mineral Veil (it didn't really do much for me, the consistency was a little off as it seems it sometimes can be). I would give either of these another try if that's what's recommended.   I have very good skin (it's normal, with some dry patches sometimes) to the point that when I had my makeup done, the girl kept trying to wipe off my make up, and was shocked when she realized I wasn't wearing any on my face. I'm only saying this because I know one of the draws to some primers is how they smooth out the skin (ex. hourglass), and I'm not really interested in that, I'm simply looking for the best long lasting primer.    Thanks for any and all help
