New brand Farmacy - feedback and discussion
So I noticed this new line of skincare products that both Sephora and QVC is carrying. Has anyone here used any of their products or personally heard good/bad things about the brand? I thought about purchasing the lip balm they have just to try the brand out. It appears to be an all natural line (which I can appreciate). Thanks in advance!

The buffing grains caught my attention too - that and the moisturizer. Hopefully someone will chime in. see post

Sunday Riley Oil for Skin
Hi, So I have combination oily sensitive skin that is prone to getting congested and breaking out. I've been checking out Sunday Riley after hearing good things about them, but I'm not sure which oil would be best for my skin type. I'm currently using boscia Tsubaki oil as my oil with no problems, if that helps. If anyone has any experiences with the different oils and recommendations, they would be must appreciated! Thank you

Sunday Riley Skincare Users, I need some advice....
So I've bought both Juno and Luna and am loving them so far. I have oily combo, sensitive skin and they haven't bothered me at all which is amazing!!! Plus they do wonders for my skin. I'm writing because I'm thinking of buying another one of her oils. I've been eyeballing Good Genes, but I was curious what you guys have to say about it (or her other oils). I'm looking for an oil or treatment to layer with Juno in the morning. Thanks!

Sigma Brushes: Any Bad Experiences?
I'm thinking about buying the Sigma Complete Kit in Chrome for $379 and the Sigmax Essential Kit 10 Brushes at $146. I really want to invest in some good quality brushes. Literally the only ones I have have come in kits or I picked up at the local drugstore They shed and I'm not thrilled with their application (I'm looking at you foundation brush. What's the verdict on these kits? If I'm going to spend that kinda money, they all better be hits haha. I like the idea of having a complete kit so I will be able to just grab a brush when I need it.   Brushes in Sigmax kit: F80 - Flat Kabuki™ F82 - Round Kabuki™ F84 - Angled Kabuki™ F88 - Flat Angled Kabuki™ F86 - Tapered Kabuki™ P80 - Precision Flat™ P82 - Precision Round™ P84 - Precision Angled™ P86 - Precision Tapered™ P88 - Precision Flat Angled™   Brushes in Complete kit: E05 - Eye Liner E10 - Small Eye Liner E15 - Flat Definer E20 - Short Shader E25 - Blending E30 - Pencil E35 - Tapered Blending E40 - Tapered Blending E45 - Small Tapered Blending E50 - Large Fluff E55 - Eye Shading E60 - Large Shader E65 - Small Angle E70 - Medium Angled Shading F05 - Small Contouring F10 - Powder/Blush F15 - Duo Fibre Powder/Blush F20 - Large Powder F25 - Tapered Face F30 - Large Powder F35 - Tapered Highlighter F40 - Large Angled Contour F50 - Duo Fibre F55 - Small Duo Fibre F60 - Foundation F65 - Large Concealer F70 - Concealer F75 - Concealer L05 - Lip   *by the way there are no repeats   So are these Sigma brushes good quality?

What new Surprise is waiting for Canadians?
Two months ago on a weekend most things showed "Can't be shipped to Canada" and lateron we were given a surprise of Canadian warehouse with limited products access. Now Every single product of many brands is gone OOS,,,what we should expect now. I just checked the brands which interest me personally and following Brands are totally OOS Alterna Algenist Atelier Cologne ABH Bite Bio Ionic Burberry Bumble and Bumble, Buxom Clinique Dr Brandt DDG Dior Estee Lauder Fresh Georgio Armani GlamGlow Guerlain hourglass Jurlique KVD Lancome MUFE Murad Marc Jacob  Nars Ren Tarte T3 Tria Tom Ford Shishedo Smashbox UD YSL     These are the only ones I checked. No idea whaich others are gone. Is it such a hardship to inform us before time when some massive changes are going on?

That's what I think as well. Sephora policies or Canadian warehouse don't have anything to do with price increase. It's all the outcome of decreasing value of CAD. see post
Dior skincare - Which products make me more oily and what are your must-haves?
Hello. I use a few Dior products and want to know which ones you find to be "essentials" and if there are some I could do without. I tried many of them to see what I like.   So far, I use Dior Capture Totale Multi-Perfection Serum, Multi-Perfection Emulsion, Dreamskin,and Capture Totale Multi-Perfection Makeup Base 25 SPF PA+. I adore the Diorskin Nude BB cream.   My must have is the BB cream and serum. I'm thinking of trying the One Essential serum and comparing it to the MP serum since I've read such great reviews.   Of the others, something is making me oily and I can't figure out which one. I figure it is the Emulsion, Dreamskin, or the make up base.   My skin issues are large pores, oiliness and dryness, and I am approaching mid-thirties, so I'm entering the wrinkle prevention category. I am looking for general advice from those who use Dior products and would like imput on order of application, ones that could be causing oiliness, and your must-have products of the Dior line.   Thanks.

Yes, I find many of the moisturizers to be too oily for my skin. Still on the search for the perfect one. So far the MP Emulsion works nicely at night with Capture Total... see post
Holiday "Me" List
Sure, we make Christmas Lists for our loved ones, but what about for ourselves? I made one this year of all the holiday sets I would like, along with a few other wants from Sephora. The big problem is that it amounts to nearly $800 (sheesh, that's like a huge vacation) Naturally, I don't need that much and my friend challenged me to pick out 3 holiday sets. *biting my nails*If you can only pick three holiday sets which ones would you pick?

If you are a Verizon Wireless customer and you see all those "points" you rack up each month, but never do anything with- now is the time to do something!   If you log into your verizon account and find the rewards section (usually by your point balance), search in the "Beauty & Fragrance" section.

Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil
  I'm thinking about purchasing the Josie Maran Argan oil, but I'd like to learn more about it before deciding! Is this used alone as a moisturizer at night? Does it work for dry to combination skin? I've heard some people mix it in with their moisturizer and I was wondering if that was to be used underneath makeup, or just as a duo moisture thing? I'm also looking for a type of hydrating oil to be mixed into my foundation! I have dry skin, but my nose area gets a tad bit oily throughout the day and I am currently using the MUFE Ultra HD foundation. Please let me know what you think about the JM argan oil, and if you have time, a mini review would be great Any suggestions will be very helpful too! Thanks!

ABH Powder Brows
I have been using the brow whiz in taupe and I am sick of it. I started using the pomade in blonde/taupe I believe and I like it much more. However, I feel the taupe is a little too warm for me and wanted to try the cooler shades in the powders. I have cool blonde hair. Has anyone used the powder? If so, how did u like it?

 Hello to all beauty lovers! So I just bought my new Clarisonic yesterday and I noticed that the instructions said to charge it for a full 24 hours before using. However I noticed this morning when I got up that the blinking green light had stopped and that it is fully charged. Is it OK to go ahead and use?

Blinking green is the charge indicater, when its full/done blinking it's fully charged. How it looks may differ by model. see post

Ideas for sets/goodie bags (beauty related) to give to 21st birthday guests?
I'm turning 21 in September and taking 2 of my best friends and my sister to a nice hotel for 3 nights. I want to either put together a goodie bag or give them pre-made giftsets. Any ideas?

What is your favorite vitamin C serum? Anyone tried Klairs Vitamin C serum?
I'm a big fan of vitamin C serum and have used Ole Henriksen Truth Serum since forever. I've tried PTR camu camu and it was ok. Right now there's a $10 off $25 on SokoGlam for referral(carries lots of popular Korean skincare and makeup, PM me for code if interested) so I've been eyeing that Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin C serum.   Meganlisa got me interested in the brand Klairs. It's got similar ingredients to Truth Serum but for almost half the price, so I was wondering if anyone's tried it? or have a vitamin C serum you like better than Truth Serum?   Thanks~

What discontinued Products Do You Miss the Most?
I was wondering, what beauty products that Sephora has stopped selling or cosmetic companies have stopped making do all of  you miss the most? Have you been able to find other beauty products to replace them? The products I miss like crazy are:   1. Benefit Cosmetics "Depuffing Action Eye Gel " In the morning, sometimes my eyes get a little puffy and tired-looking. This product was the most effective and fast-acting way to get rid of puffiness and make my eyes look brighter in one easy step. I'm so sad that it's gone!   2. Tarte "Rise & Shine Lip Gloss and Stain " This combo of pretty-colored long-lasting lip stain and plumping colored lip gloss is the prettiest lip color I've ever tried. It looks better in photos than anything else I know of. Sephora recently stopped carrying this. I'm glad it's still avaiable on Ulta, but I'd rather buy it from Sephora so I can get Sephora beauty points!   3. Bare Escentuals "Brilliant Gold Beauty Duo " This is such a fun little set that includes a top quality and heavenly soft brush as well as a case of highlighting powder that adds a beautiful golden shimmer to your complexion. It's more convenient and easier to use than any other complexion-brightening product I've ever tried. I love my "High Beam" and "Girl Meets Pearl," but this product is so much faster and easier to apply. I know it was a limited edition, but it's just such a great value that works so well, I really wish they'd bring it back. If they did, I'd buy one for myself, of course, but I would probably pick up a couple for gifts too.   What about all of you? What no longer available products do you miss the most? Have you found good replacements for them? By the way, if anyone knows of an effective replacement for any of the products I mentioned, I'd be most grateful to hear about it!

YSL Touche Eclat
I LOVE the Touche Eclat line of products from YSL! They smell AMAZING and make my skin super supple and help to give a flawless look. Together these products help to reduce pore size and give a light overall rosy healthy glow to my skin. I was worried at first about the glitter in the Blur Primer, but once applied to the skin it doesn't really show the glitter at all. You can use this product alone for brighter skin or under your makeup to have it last longer. The Blur Perfector starts out as a balm and once applied to the skin turns to a powdery like finish which leaves your skin looking even, and helps to get rid of imperfections. Another great aspect of the Blur Perfector is that it applies transparently so it can be used with any skin type or skin tone! LOVE these products!

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! = )
