Am I the only one totally obsessed with Becca Shimmering Skin Perfectors?
I can't be the only one, right? So far I have all the pressed versions. Minis of all the liquids except for Moonstone (which I do not have yet), Pearl (which I do not have yet), and Rose Gold (I have the full size).   And I just ordered the new Spotlights set!   Please tell me there are others out there as obsessed as me!

What shades of make up could possibly match my dress?
Hi! Prom is next year but I'm already getting started! I've decided to let sephora make up artists do my make up for prom! The dress I want is black & turquoise! I'm having trouble finding colors that'll match my dress and my skin tone. What shades of make up could compliment my dress? My color IQ is 2Y12 thank you!

Cream Makeup Removers
Tried to do a search on Sephora but my keywords didn't really turn up many results. I'm looking for a makeup remover that isn't a liquid or oil but instead a cream. I know the Benefit They're Real Remover is a cream, but it's pretty pricey for the amount you get.

Applying primer
I've seen several different video's, here on Sephora and other places and, well, I'm confused!  They all seem to be applying face primer differently!  Some show it applied allover the face, some just in "trouble" spots....Can anyone help a gal out? Also, I'm new to face primers and just trying them out...I wear Nars sheer glow (?) foundation and really don't know which primer to go with. Any ideas are welcomed! Ideally, I'd like it to even out my skin tone..it's a tad red in areas.  I have blonde hair, blue eyes, medium skin tone that is combination, but is prone an occasional break out....I do have to touch up my face with powder as it will become shiny in my t-zone by the end of the day..but I wouldn't call my skin oily. Tx so much!

Talk to me about Glam Glow!!
I went in store to check out glam glow.  I am interested in the Super Clearing Mud(white jar) and PowerMud (green jar).  My skin is breakout prone (particularly once a month!) and I have been getting more clogged pores with the hot weather, but since fall/winter are around the corner, I want to keep that in mind for my purchase, since it is expensive.  In winter my skin becomes very dry and dehydrated.  In winter, I use NUDE cellular renewal cream, to give you an idea.  I cleanse with Kate Somerville Detox Cleanser (summer) or REN Clear Calm Clay Cleanser (winter)  and follow up with FAB Radiance Pads and PTR Camu Camu Serum.  I use the clarisonic about every three days, and PTR Peeling Gel or Kate Somerville Clearing Mask in between.  For moisturizer, if I am not using NUDE (like right now), I am using Ole Henrikson Sheer Transformation or Kate Somerville Goat Milk cream.    Which mask would be better for me?  What is the difference between the two?  My understanding is that they are both deep cleansing.  Would appreciate input from those who have used both, and are breakout-prone!   Thank you!

Hourglass Veil Primer
Hi everyone.  I did a bit of a search and didn't see any recent posts addressing this so I thought I'd check and see if anyone had any new information or solutions.  I love the veil mineral primer, but my present 1oz. bottle and several small samples I've used have had an issue of getting watery and separated.  When I take the pump off of the 1oz bottle there is thick, almost clumpy, primer that clings to the walls of the glass, and then thin liquid sits in the bottom and gets dispensed when you push the pump.  I've tried shaking it (LOTS of shaking) and that hasn't seemed to help.  There's a significant difference in the performance of the product when I get use just the liquidy part, vs. if I actually scoop out some of the most solid/thick part from inside the bottle.     It's a great product, but it's almost becoming more work that it's worth.  Has anyone that's had this issue in the past get any response from Hourglass or find a solution elsewhere?   Thanks so much!

Have Your Ever Used The PSA Appointment At Your Store?
Hi beauties,      I was checking out what events are coming up at my local stores and I noticed the 90 minute personal shopping appointment with a SA (free with $125 spend)   Have any of you ever used this before?  What did you think?   I've got a few new things I need to pick up soon (coral lippie, luminizer and need to find a new concealer) so I figure I'm probably almost at $125 there and thought it might be fun.   I'm curious to hear what you've used this service for?   Thanks! p.

I was tossing a few samples into my sample stash bag, and realized a) I have a sample hoarding problem and b) I have no clue what I've got in there.  So Going along with blackwhiskey's makeup challenge, I'm proposing the September Sample Challenge.  For the last 10 days of September, use at least 5 samples from your stash, then give us your mini review. Did you like it? Would you purchase it? Etc.      so.....who's up for another challenge?

Perfume Samples - aka - "Eau De headache/migraine" & Odorous & overpowering
Hi - don't know if anyone else feels this way, but I have a major problem with fragrance samples - P.U.   This part is especially to the mods/whoever else reads all of this  - Is there any way you could put perfume samples in a separate baggie? Preferably a sealed one. Do you think this is doable??   ** I just started opening one of many Sephora packages and got to one where I didn't even get the box opened, but could smell the very strongly scented, perfume inside. I had to put it in another room,, in hopes of the smell wearing off. (I've already heard complaints on how it's stinking up that room too **sigh**) I don't know if it leaked or what happened, but it smells so strong and so overpowering and just plain Nasty!! Sometimes I find that if something like a lip product is packed with a smelly something or other, they can take on the scent of whatever the smelly offender might be,  which isn't necessarily a good thing.   Do you think there's anything that can be done about this? (Other then the obvious, 'don't order perfume samples stupid') I only get perfumes if there are no other samples that work for me. Then I pass them along to my friends, family etc. They're usually thrilled!   Any thoughts on what could be done in the future? Hope others agree and that it's not just me. I will admit, I do have very heightened senses, but sometimes you know it's not just you (i.e. all the moaning/groaning I'm hearing about smelling up another whole room) Maybe you can send this to the 'higher ups' too.    ***Hope others will mention if they agree with this stinky issue, strength in numbers and all. You don't have to heart this - maybe just put a 'me too' or 'same' - then it would be known it's not just one crazy woman. Thanks all, I appreciate it.     ps - I'll let y'all know how I like what's in the box in about a week or so, my special-ordered Pink HazMat suit should be here by then and hoping it will be safe to go near by then.   btw - Help Mods.....Please and Thank You.   UPDATE - Well, the 'offending package' was moved to a 3rd room this morning before I woke up - I fear the next step will be out on the deck! Unfortunately it's not a mini order, but one with several items. **Ginormous Sigh**

Personal Beauty Consultations vs. Custom Makeover
My eighteenth birthday is coming up and I want to learn more about what make up is right for me and how to apply it in a way that compliments my face the best.  I'm not sure whether to get a custom makeover or a personal beauty consultation. I wanna learn all the tips and tricks I can as well as products that'll work best for me, but I also don't wanna break my wallet. I know the minimum amount for the makeover is $50 and the PBC is $125 but will it really only cost that much and how much more?  If anyone has any advice or an experience they'd like to share that they think would help me I'd greatly appreciate it.

How To Get ALL The Benefits Of My Serum/ Serum-Dry-Oil (s) & Mixing ?!
So I really dig the Algenist line & I got a cpl of point perk sample of the ANTI AGING SERUM-OIL.  I didn't think I would get to use anymore since I got a pretty good sized pack of  this awhile back... when I fell in LOVE w/ it. - I have been applying w/ the palm of my hands & tried fingertips . I feel like maybe I am wasting it ( even though I apply immediately like a mad woman pressing into my cleansed skin AFTER using the FAB Radiance Pads that were recommended ( btw, thanks SO much, my skin/nose/pores is looking better & better) . SO, Basically do any of you have some awesome advice , tip's, and tricks as to how to apply my dry-oil serums,  oils, and serums? - Also, I know they say thinnest to thickest.  Is this always the case ( I just don't  want to waste any product and get more benefits) ?     I also have the CAUDALIE VINASOURCE OVERNIGHT RECOVERY OIL & I have not tried it yet (wanted to use the new FAB pads & the Algenist oil 1st for awhile & see how my skin responded). - The directions say to apply at night AND/ OR mix w/ a tinted moisturizer . I am interested in trying BOTH but wanted your opinion on ^ the above general application questions, how many drop's to use alone & in my tinted moisturizer, and what would be the best way to use it from the vile.   Along w/ the CAUDALIE ^ above, I have the POLYPHENOL [C 15] ANTI WRINKLE DEFENSE SERUM -ALL SKIN TYPES. - I have tried it once or twice but then just stopped . It say's to build ur application amount up & BEFORE the FAB PAD'S I used the normal amount w/ no problems irritation wise (so now Idk if the FAB pad's would make me more sensitive to the serum). * (However I had been trying the Josie M. Argon Milk Serum  in the a.m., & I think it was causing some clogged pores and/ or under-skin non-painful bumps along my jaw line. But it could have been hormones.... either way while I used the Argon Milk more I stopped both. This has been months back ).   - SO, my question(s) w/ this is of course the 1st ^ questions of application in  general & should I give I another go (& how much should I apply), when to apply, and what would be best w/ what?   After I am satisfied w/ how I am applying my oil's & serums I have some questions I will post about a cpl of Algenist Creams & CAUDALIE Rich that I am confused & torn with (as in when, where, how, or if at all, & how I have 2 day / anytime moisturizers & a NUDE sleeping Mask so how/ or if I should rotate them out). Just Food For Thought as I know I can easily get ahead of myself ! I would just feel better when I get this ironed out, that's all.     Thank you in advance for your info, beautification wisdom, & tip's ! I always appreciate your input & find it very, very, very helpful !

Sephora vs. Ulta - The Verdict
I've been a VIB for a few years now, and my local Sephora is within walking distance of that "other" brand. I've heard rave reviews about their rewards program, most especially about their generous giving of free product with each new level reached and not samplers.   Today, I headed to my Sephora store for the VIB event, got my bag loaded up, and then...went to Ulta. I was actually there to get a tube of NYX lip gloss since I've heard so much about it, but I went through the whole store out of pure curiosity.   The verdict? While Ulta does carry drugstore brands and their rewards are pretty lofty in comparison...Sephora has my heart. Ulta felt too "superstore-ish". No offense, but a little...below...the standard and prestige of Sephora. So, Sephora, heed our call! Amp up our VIB rewards. Tidy up the shelves and demos in your stores (our store is a tad lacking in that dept.). And, keep up the great work! = )

New Category - Isn't Really New
Since the new category on the Sephora homepage is clearly a page that is hand updated (in the era of populating off a tag to aggregate, I have no idea why), what is your strategy to keep up with what is really new in Sephora?   I've taken to once a week popping open the brand page for my favorites (makes Firefox really mad) and pull all products, look for price drops and the new tag to show up there.   Just today found some stuff in BareMinerals (deluxe foundation pot), Urban Decay (setting sprays), and Lavanilla (deorderant trio and scent trio) that had not posted yet in the forums. It is unbelievable the lengths we're having to go to find items (sometimes limited edition stuff). Posting this in the feedback forum, even though it is website feedback instead of forum software.

Eucerin Daily Protection Moisturizing Face Lotion
I am so pleased I had to share! I use drug store moisturizers with spf daily, and I have tried many including neutrogena, olay and aveeno. I hav oily/normal combination skin and up to today I though a little bit greasiness due to my lotion/sunscreen was unavoidabke unless  I want to switch to higher end products.    A couple of weeks ago I realized I was running low on my Neutrogena oil free face lotion and while I was in target I picked Eucerin lotion because it was only 6.99 and I was not super happy with my current lotion.    Today I just tried Eucerin and I can't believe I was wasting my money on all those mousturizers that claim to be non greasy! This is by far the best thing I tried so far, it has  spf 30 instead of the common spf 15 in oil free lotions. I had no white cast to my face either. I hope I can always find Eucerin at my local target!   Have you guys tried this lotion before? What do you think?

i just bought the too faced mascara today when i came home and opened it, it was really light. i dont know if it's supposed to be like that, though. i was at the register and i asked the lady if they had any more of the mascara in stock because there were no more on the shelves. she left the register to go and look, and im assuming that she got it out of the storage that they keep underneath the display. i didn't go with her, so i didn't see. but she came back and i bought it. the packaging seemed really intact. actually, i had to rip the upper tab a little bit because it was hard to open. anyway, when i opened it, it seemed really light. and i can't tell if it's because it was used or if its just light. can anyone help me? the last mascara i used was the maybelline great lash, and i know that has about one and a half times more than what comes in the better than sex mascara. so maybe i'm just not used to it. help please?
