Returning product after 90 days.
Back in May I purchased the Kat Von D foundation and tried it one time. It broke me out but I figured it that time of the month so blamed it on that. So I continued to use my Makeup HD product.. Well I ran out last week and this week finally started to use the Kat Von d and even with primer and setting spray it will not look right. Its way to shiny and the color is too light on my face, plus I broke out again. So it’s been over 90 days since I purchased it, would I still be able to return it t to the store?Anyone know? thanks!!

Some stores might want to give you store credit, since it's been over 60 days. However that's up to the store! Usually they give me the money back anyway.   see post
Best moisturizer for acne skin?
I've recently bought a Clarisonic Mia 2 and been using the acne brush and cleanser, I only use it once a night and was wondering what moisturizer I should use to help clear my acne and acne scars? I also been noticing some dryness on my forehead so I need a moisturizer that will help.

Good foundation for eczema-prone skin?
So I'm looking for a light-to-medium coverage foundation that won't irritate my skin. I currently use a BB cream by Maybelline that's okay, but I wouldn't mind spending more on a product that doesn't irritate my skin. I also wonder if adding a primer would hurt or help in my situation...

Products to brighten/even skin tone/provide glow
Hey all,   I am in my late 20s and have dry, dehydrated skin that tends to get dull, greyish looking from time to time. I also have some old acne spots and hyperpigmentation spots that I want to lighten. For the spot lightening, I have been using the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance serum which seemed to noticeably help for the first 3 weeks, but now I don't see much of a difference. This is something weird I've noticed about my skin in general. It tends to reach a constant state after a while   Anyway, some of my acne scars (esp the newer ones) have lightened a bit so I'll continue to use the above serum. However, I would really like to incorporate some products that would help brighten the skin overall, and maybe also aid the scar lightening along the way. My skin looks really lack lustre sometimes   Enlisting my routine here in case it helps: Morning: Skip the cleanser in the morning usually, or use Fresh Soy Cleanser if feeling greasy OH Truth serum, followed by  Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance serum Eye cream with SPF: OH or Supergoop OH Advanced hydration moisturizer  Supergoop SPF 30 sunscreen serum  Evening: Clinique Take the day off balm + flannel Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance serum Occasionally: Hydraluron serum Tata Harper Repleneshing Nutrient Complex as face oil + eye serum Origins Night-A-Mins cream Also, I exfoliate a couple of times a week with Dermadoctor Wrinkle Revenge Cleanser with 12% glycolic acid. Is this not enough? Also, masks include Origins Charcoal mask, Drink Up intensive mask, Sephora Pearl Brightening Mask.   Looking forward to suggestions, please!

What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)
We're blabbing about everything else these days, I figured I'd check in and see what people are watching when it comes to TV shows and movies!   It would be foolish to think that this thread could remain spoiler free, so let's be courteous to one another and be sure to spoiler your spoilers. If you don't know how, it's that super adorable little yellow button on the toolbar, located to the right of the bold/italic/underline/strikeout buttons.    DONT FORGET: If you happen to be the most recent post, your first sentence or two of your post will show up EVEN IF ITS IN A SPOILER. So please take care if you're going to go dropping spoiler bombs.    Anywho... I just saw the movie PHOENIX last night and it was absolutely spectacular. Like Academy Award spectacular. If you're fortunate enough have showings in your area, I cannot urge you enough to go see it.    So whatcha'll watchin' these days? What are you anxiously waiting for to start back up?

Need Moisture Recommendations!
Hi Ladies!   So, I am testing Boscia Clear Complexion Moisturizer right now. But, I am looking for recommendations from you all from experience!   I have combination skin. Pretty oily around my nose, forehead and chin. Recently, I have been kind of dry on my cheeks. Looking for something to balance it out.    I am using Marc Jacobs foundation and don't have a set primer right now. (Trying out some different ones). I also have been using the First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Oil-Free Mattifying Gel Moisturizer, but was told to just use it on my oily spots, because my cheeks are dry right now and it was looking dry under my foundation.   I know this is a lot of information, but I need help choosing a moisture for day/night to keep my skin hydrated so it doesn't get dry and flaky and doesn't cause it to create more oil. And doesn't look oily under makeup!   Thank you!

Hair color fade out - help!
I've been coloring my hair for many years using Loreal products. Until about 6 months ago I was using a very very light shade of blonde. My natural hair color is dark blonde. In the past 6 months I've switched to a darker blonde permanent hair color (level 8 or so). The problem is that the color doesn't seem to "stick" to my hair for very long at all (like maybe a week or two). All my hair is now pretty much back to super white.   I'd like to get away from the super white blonde because it is frying my hair, I think it is aging (and who wants that?), and I'd like a more natural shade. Should I switch to a non-permanent color in dark blonde? Will I need to touch it up more often? Will it allow my natural color to grow out more w/o lightening all my hair?    I'll add that I am outside a lot in the summer, swim in chlorine (I try to use a swim cap religiously), and wash my hair about every-other-day. I don't use any special shampoos other than a purple one about 1x a week to chase away brassiness.    TIA for any suggestions!

NEED HELP WITH SKIN PLEASE :)
Hi Everyone!   So, I have a wedding to attend this weekend. I recently went tanning a few times to get some color before. (I know it's not good) and it has caused my oil/combo skin to be a bit more dry in some places.   Well here is why I need your help! I have been looking so dry on my cheeks and chin under my makeup. While my T-Zone is still on the oily side! What will help me ASAP.   I started using, The Regimen Kit Combination/Oily, by Mario Badescu last night. I used a night cream moisturizer last night by this brand also called Seaweed Night Cream  to help get moisture into my skin, it felt somewhat better.   BUT when I put on my marc jacobs foundation and make up for ever smoothing primer this morning I felt like you could still see the dryness on my cheek and unevenness.   & I am still unsure of a primer. I haven't found my HG! I have acne marks in my skin and indents on my cheeks/forehead that causes it not too look very smooth.    I hope I can find some products that I will fall in love with! I need to look amazing for the wedding!   Thank you in advance!

Q. clarisonic dryness
I was so excited when I purchased my clarisonice Mia. I started using it on Friday.  I was using it twice a day with Philosphy Purity, followed by Clinique Toner and Clinique Dramatic Lotion Gel (I can't remeber the whole name.)  By today, Tuesday (4 days after i began use) my face is SO DRY and flaky all of my chin and cheeks. I have combination skin and usually have a oily t-zone and dry cheeks.  The flaking on my chin and cheeks is unbareable.  It looks HORRIBLE!!!  Has anyone else experienced this?  I read somewhere that I should cut back to only using it once a day instead of twice.  But do you think i should get a stronger moisturizer?  I have been using the cleanser, toner and gel for years and have never had this issue before. I'm afraid I might have to return the MIA!!!

Tinted moisturizer suggestions for fair skin
I am looking to try a new tinted moisturizer, specifically I'd love to try the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. I currently wear the Clinique Moisture Surge tinted moisturizer in shade 01 (Alabaster it's called I think). I tried using the online ColorIQ to see what other products would be a match to this shade but the clinique tinted moisturizer wasn't one that I could select.   Does anyone know what the comparable shade would be in the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer?   Other suggestions for tinted moisturizer would be great too. I have very dry skin, so I prefer something very moisturizing and / or illuminating.    Thanks.
