Q. what type of makeup should be used on neck/chest to make skin tone look even?
In the summer my face tends to tan better than my chest and im not sure what type of makeup i should use on my chest to match my face. Its hard because i have freckles so i never use any face makeup (only stuff for my eyes/lips).

Q. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer vs. Benefit Hoola
So I've for a long time been looking for the perfect bronzer, and I've put it down to two bronzers, that I have to chose between.   I'm asian with medium/olive skin tone, and I don't really have any skin problems.   So I want to ask you, which one do you like better and why? Or if you only have one of them, why do you like or dislike the product?

A. Hi LipstickTilly,   I think both bronzers are great, however, I think Hoola might be better with your skintone as the chocolate soleil is definitely a deeper shade. ... see post

Q. How often do you return items to Sephora?
I know Sephora offers a wonderful exchange/return policy... but I feel bad returning my items.  I feel like I return my items about 50% of the time because honestly, after the first use I can tell I already don't like it.  I don't want to get on their list (of bad customers) for returning too many items, I'm honestly not trying to rip them off.

Q. Color IQ
So I had the color IQ test done two different time and both times came back with the same answer, 4Y06, Which is a light-medium with yellow undertones. But then when I went to ulta to get matched she said I was fair with neutral to pink undertones. And I've always been bad at finding the right foundation shade. I was just wondering which I should trust more?

Q. Sensitive Skin
I have very sensitive skin that's often prone to redness and acne. However, I just started trying out makeup and I want to figure out what's best for my skin while being able to experiment with different styles and colors. However, I don't like products/brands that contain harsh chemicals (i.e. parabens or phthalates) or test on animals. With that in mind, do any of you have recommendations for these items:     Makeup Remover Wipes/Brush Cleaners Eyeshadow/Face Palettes (in neutral, soft, vivid/bold colors and/or a combo of any of these) Single Eyeshadows/Blushes/Highlighters/Bronzers Colorless Lip Balm  Mascara Eyeliner Lipstick/Gloss/Stain/Colored Lip Balm   Thank you!

Q. Best sheer lipstick? Thoughts on Surratt lipslique?
I'm looking for a new sheer lipstick, and have been using Bite Beauty's Lush Lip Tint and the Dior lip glow for a while now. I've also been using the Clarins lip product in the squeeze tube.   I'd love to try out a new sheer lipstick but I'm not too sure where to start.   Surratt's Lipslique has intrigued me (specifically Bandy, Hevyn, Nu De Soleil, and Gamine), but since there isn't a way to sample these near me I have no idea which color will work. Swatches online also don't help because they're arm swatches, and I need more reference points since I have warm olive skin.   I've tried YSL's sheer lipsticks but I'm not sure how in love with the color I was. Anybody have any other thoughts on sheer lipstick brands and colors?   If you've tried any of the Surratt lipsliques, what are your thoughts?

Q. whats a good face primer for dry, tan skin?
Hello everyone! I just need some help finding a good face primer.  I have normal to dry skin and i need a hydrating primer but I also have tan skin with yellow undertones. I've used the Rimmel London Stay Matte primer from the drugstore, its mattifying but it doesn't work well with my dry skin and it makes my skin tone look lighter and it makes my foundation appear lighter.  So I'm in the hunt for a primer that wont lighten my skin tone and make it look white or washed out. Do you guys know of any primer that's hydrating and wont lighten my skin tone or make my skin look washed out/ashy?  Would a primer that's clear or have gel like consistency would work? What products do you recommend? Thank you! Hope you can help me!
