In love with Marc Jacobs Highliner! Color recs
This is the only eyeliner I have ever tried that lasts and I'm so excited that I've finally found "the one"!  I purchased the black so far but what other colors would compliment my blue/green eyes for everyday?  I wear neutral eyeshadows, typically browns (from the UD Naked 3 palette) or purple eyeshadows.  Thank you!

Choosing an anti-aging face oil
Hi gals,   I am in my late 20s and looking to invest in a good anti-aging face oil. I have dry, dehydrated skin and want to incorporate something in my routine that can fight skin stressors and maintain the health of the skin for a while.    I was trying to choose between: Caudalie Premier Cru serum/oil, Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex and Sunday Riley Juno.   Have you used any of the above oils, and could you share your experiences? Thanks!

Dry and flakey forehead at temples near hairline
I've been growing out my bangs and noticed the other day, when wearing a headband, that the skin on my forehead near the hairline above my temples is flakey.   My face/foundation would be nearly flawless except right there - where it looks scaley.  Has anyone else experienced this?  What causes it and what can I do to treat it?  I have a pretty good skincare regime (don't think I'm missing any steps), so any insight would be greatly appreciated.  Thx!

Fine line help!? Late 20s
Hello! So I am in my late 20s and have more fine lines on my forehead/around my eyes then I would like (and more than my peers). I have normal skin with some dryness around my eyes and I tend to have sensitive skins (there are a few companies I can't even use because my skin freaks out and I get a huge rash all over my face- none from sephora yet) anyway, I am trying to find a product that will help with the fine lines without making my skin freak out. I loved the sample I had of the Sunday Riley eye cream (and I think it works wonders) but it made my skin feel like it was burning after a few days. Right now I use the tarte vitamin c eye cream and I like it for my dark circles okay but I'm not attached to it. Any suggestions would be wonderful (serums, creams, cleansers- anything) (I've also tried FAB eye products, 2 clique serums & the philosophy hope is not enough) Currently I use FAB as my regular skin routine w/ the tarte eye cream & maracuja oil @ night around my eyes as well to help with the dryness.  Thanks!

Updated Skincare Research
Hello,   I've been reading on the ewg skin deep report 2014 that vitamin A exposed to sunlight damages skin cells, however I've noticed some cosmetic brands including sunscreens still contain retinyl palmitate. I'm curious to know if anyone has come across any recent skincare research.  I like to stay updated, though I don't always browse the research sites.

Skin Care Recomendations- Dry/Oily Acne Prone
Just a bit of a back story- I have oily acne prone skin. After months of experimenting with skincare products I  finally was able to clear up most of the acne. For a month I had the best skin of my life, it was hydrated and not super oily with the occasional pimple that I could get rid of in 2 days.   A while ago I got the deluxe sample of the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil. I started using the night I received it. I used it for about 5 days and I noticed that the area on the sides of my nose had a dry patch on both sides. I could tell because my foundation would cling to that area and it didnt look smooth anymore, my face had texture where I didnt have it before. By the 7th day for the first time ever my skin felt dry and tight, even after I moisturized. I could apply enough moisturizer, my skin would just soak it up. Apart from being dry it would still get oily in my tzone through out the day.     I realized that the Luna sleeping oil was the only thing that I had really changed in my routine and stopped using immediately. My skin has not been able to recover since. It doesnt feel tight but it still looks very dry and it showed when I applied makeup. My foundation clings and cracks on the sides of where nostrils are and looks really dry. The texture really never disappeared but it did subside a bit. I increased my water intake and stop using a bunch of my acne products that would dry out my skin in hopes of it helping, but I cant seem to get it to the state it was before.    Did this happen to anyone else using luna oil??   What are some product recomendations for people with dehydrated/oily/acne prone skin?

Advice on Skincare!
So, when I was growing up I never washed my face and as a teenager I rarely had breakouts. When I did it would be one here or there, and never really became a problem. The older I got, and the more skin conscious I became, I noticed that my skin was always oily with really big pores and MANY (not being self conscious) dark pores on my nose. After getting sick of my ugly skin, I decided to start washing my face and soon after started my break outs. I have tried a lot of different things, mostly the cheaper Wal-Mart brands but a few clinique products etc, everything made me break out worse. The only thing that has allowed me to be able to wash my face is Pro-Activ. I also can't use any make-up removers, regular soap, or really anything on my skin. Make-up also causes worse break outs. The only thing I have found that allows me to remove make-up without making my skin break out is almond oil. I haven't been to a dermatologist as doctors and hospitals/clinics freak me out so I would prefer not to go if I don't have to. Does anyone know what might be causing my problem and what product might best suit my skin?

PTR unwrinkle peel pads replacement?
Hello It seems the PTR Un-Wrinkle Peel Pads are no longer available on the Canadian Sephora website! I recently started using them and am in love - already my skin seems more even-toned and it really seems to help my skincare products get better absorbed.   Does anyone have any recommendations for something similar?

Clarisonic Brush Advice
Hi everyone! I purchased a Clarisonic about 2 years ago. It has the normal brush head. I initially used it once a day for 3 months then backed off to 3 or 4 times a week for 4 months. I never noticed any improvement or change in my skin. If anything, I thought my acne was slightly worse and my skin felt rougher. Basically, it has sat unused in my bathroom for a year. Now that there are lots of new brush heads available, I am wondering if I should try another brush head and give the Clarisonic a second chance    I have oily-combination skin. My chin/forehead is oily and I typically have 1-2 whiteheads especially around that time of the month. My temples and nose are dry. I am 30, and have the beginning of some tiny brown sun spots that are fading nicely with OH truth serum. I also have some unevenness to my skin tone. Any advice on what brush head to try? Or do you suggest I give up on it? I would like to know others' experience with it as well!   TIA!

Budget Bride Needs Advice on Investing in a Few Natural Products for Wedding
I'm new to the forum, but I have a request for advice:   My wedding is this year in the late fall, and I have started thinking ahead to which makeup I will use. I plan to go for a consultation in-store, but I want to be prepared with community suggestions first. So, please let me know what you think!   The reasons I want advice are 1) I am on a budget, and I don't want to buy a whole arsenal of new makeup, just a few key items that will be  useful after the wedding and/or would take my wedding look (and photos) to the next level; 2) I try to buy natural (and organic) skin and makeup products as much as possible because I believe it is healthier for me, the producers, and the environment; 3) I am not up on the newest products and lines.   I often don't wear much makeup, but I do have experience and technical knowledge (my mom loves makeup, so she took me to the MAC counter and bought me Bobby Brown and Kevyn Aucoin books when I was a teenager!).   I already have and really like products from Josie Maran (luminizer cream, argan face oil, blush stick, lip gloss), Korres (concealer, bronzer), 100 Percent Pure (eye cream, powder blush, eyeshadow, mascara), and Burt's Bees (tinted lip balm). But I think I will need a primer or finishing powder, a foundation, a lip stain or stick, an eyeliner, and maybe a couple other items. Haircare and skincare suggestions are welcome too!

best products to help even out acne prone sensitive skin
Hello. I have an oily skin and for the past few months had a lot of breakouts. I went to a dermatologist and took a treatment which helped me greatly. Now that my skin has got rid of most of the acne and blackheads I have some acne marks and hyper pigmentation which I would like to treat now. However, as I have been struggling against those breakouts for the past few months I am being very skeptical of many products as I am scared they might break me out again. I need something that will help even my skin tone and texture. The price of the product is not an issue as long as I am sure It will help with the hyper pigmentation(post acne marks, slightly uneven skin tone, and some freckles on my T zone) and also fight against future breakouts. I would like anti acne products, serums, cleansers that're dermatology tested and clinically proved to work. Would appreciate any kind of advise and recommendations.
