I need a 12 hour lipstick with an option in colors. I love OCC, but by midday Jose color from dry lips ( I do exfoliate before apply). I use a lipstick primer. I have found certain shades of different brands. (US anarchy and Sephora long lasting in pink) can go 6-8 hours. I want a fall lighter berry shade. I was recommended Vat Von D , but am afraid of it being drying. At night I use balm to help moisturizer. Any suggestions? I hate to buy different products and have to return stuff.
Two weeks ago I stepped up my retinol game at night from the Algenist Retinol Firming and Lifting Serum to Paula's Choice Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment Cream and went through peeling, redness, and especially sensitivity (I was accidentally blending this up under my eyes and onto my lids when I put my eye cream on and my eyes were having none of it - water burned and the only thing that I found that didn't irritate them was Neosporin). When I was going through the adjustment, sunscreen was adhering to my skin increasingly poorly, which I just chalked up to the flaking and dryness. Now that my skin has adjusted to the retinol, which I am able to use daily, sunscreen will barely adhere to my skin. I've been using the same amount of the same formulas (Kate Sommerville Waterlight, Supergoop City Serum, MDSolar Sciences SPF 50, Bioderma Photoderm MAX, and Neutrogena Dry Touch SPF 45) as well as the same skincare, but they don't blend in and don't stay put. If I don't wear makeup, they look obvious on the skin becasue of the streaks they leave, and if I do, then all of the formulas just ball up when I try to blend anything out. I think that it is becasue my skin texture has improved by leaps and bounds, but am not entirely sure. Has anyone else encountered this problem, or is it just a 'me' thing? I would love to hear any suggestions for sunscreens that you all think would work as well. I would like to avoid using waterproof, but, as of now, it looks to be my only feasible option .
I know that Sephora doesn't sell Illamasqua anymore, Nordstrom never has, and now I see that it is no longer on Bloomingdales website. Does anyone know where Illamasqua can be found in the States? I am definitely not paying international shipping from the UK.
I have been noticing that my skin is starting to break out and it makes me very self-conscious cause I feel like that's the first thing people notice when they look at me. I would like some opinions on a good skin clearing kit, masks and acne friendly makeup. Please help me get better looking skin!!
Hi! I'm 28 yrs old and do not have a skin routine. I use drugstore cleansing products (Biore) and it works great. The only time I break out is during my period, and its usually on my chin. Other then that, I don't have major skin issues. I have combination/oily skin. However, I do know that as I get older, I should really have a skin routine down. I was looking at some of the "starter kits" that sephora has to offer and the clinique one is appealing - but wanted to get some others' opinions. What are your routines and how did you find the right combination of products for yourself?
Can anyone recommend an anti-aging cleanser for a woman in her mid 30's? I have some dry patches, fine lines and wrinkles but otherwise pretty normal. I'm currently using Algenist skin care products but I haven't tried their cleansers. Help please!!
I just bought the too faced better than sex mascara from a sephora store today. it seemed untouched in the packaging. The thing is, I had gone to the counter with other products and asked the lady and the register if they had more of these mascaras in stock, because there were no more on the shelves. she disappeared and returned with the mascara. it took her a little while, i could be being paranoid. anyway, im assuming she took one out of the storage units they have under the display. when i came home and opened it, it felt really light. i'm wondering if i was given a mascara that was already used? perhaps even the sample mascara? i'm not sure. there was also a red mark (kind of looks like paint/marker) on it, that won't come off. but that might just be a manufacturing defect. also, the package on the outside seemed pretty sound though. i ripped the top flap when i tried to open it, cause it was hard to unbox. does anyone know if i should go and return it for a new one?
Hi everyone! So I'm basically looking for the whole nine yards at this point. I've been content with my current and past cleansers and moisturizers but lately I've been feeling like my skin has almost started regressing? It looks like it could use some change so I'm open to all suggestions! Here's a few concerns I'd like to address for sure. but like i said WHOLE NINE YARDS Trouble Areas: -OILY TO COMBO SKIN-for the most part my skin is more on the oily side, however i noticed my skin tends to dry up around my eyebrows and mouth (don't know why those areas but that's it) -BLACKHEADS-hate them, have them. I feel like sometimes they are just so huge that its taking over my face & honestly makes me feel self conscious (which no one wants to feel) Currently using Biore black head strips & they work well for the most part, but I feel like there is more i can do to make them go away or at least be less noticeable -BRIGHTEN/EVEN SKIN TONE-I think i have pretty even skin tone, however sometimes i do get blemishes or redness on my face, also I feel like my skin is looking dull, so I'm looking for something to brighten it. Thanks i advance ! & remember the WHOLE NINE YARDS!(:
I have a dry face, but sometimes my nose gets oily. None of my parents has large pores, but I do. I have them on cheek near my nose... maybe it's because I rubbed my face a lot..? Every skin care products I've found is for oily faces. So.. any good ones for dry skin?
i've seen this type of question asked more generally, but i wanted to ask it specific to skincare. not only is it interesting to see what has really worked for people, but it'll maybe highlight some products others are interested in trying ! so: what are specific products that would cause you to hyperventilate were you to run out ? mine currently are: CLINIQUE take the day off cleansing balm FIRST AID BEAUTY facial radiance pads CAUDALIE beauty elixir AVEDA botanical kinetics hydrating face lotion edited to add: CAUDALIE vinoperfect enzymatic peel mask MURAD essential-c toner i have steps that i would never skip that are not represented in the above list, but the products i use for those steps tend to be more interchangeable. additionally, a couple products that may reach HG status soon, but need a bit more time in my rotation: FIRST AID BEAUTY skin rescue purifying mask w/ red clay CLARINS blue orchid facial oil CAUDALIE vinosource s.o.s. thirst quenching serum
Hi Ladies, I need some help in deciding with Clairsonic to get. I've narrowed it down to either the Mia 2 or 3 and I can't seem to decide between the two. I'm really liking the holiday sets that are out. A little about me: I have normal/combo skin, not acne prone or anything. My t-zone can get a little oily. I've been using Clinique's 3 Step # 2 for the past 10 years or so and I've been happy with it, but I think its time to add some deeper cleaning/exfoliating. Is the Mia 3 with the Cashmere Brush Head worth the extra $50? The Mia 2 Hydra Cleanse Set comes with 2 brush heads - is that a better buy? I'm in Canada, so the prices I've noted are higher than the US prices. $230 Mia 3 Holiday Gift Set Comes with: - White Mia 3/Aria - Clarisonic Lux Cashmere Cleanse Brush Head - Drying stand - USB Enabled Universal Voltage pLink® Charger - 1 oz Clarisonic Gentle Hydro Cleanser - 0.1 oz Amorepacific Moisture Bound Rejuvenating Eye Treatment Gel - 0.5 oz Caudalie Premier Cru The Cream - 0.23 oz Algenist Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil - 5 Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ Alpha Beta® Peels, Original Formula $180 Mia 2 Glow Holiday Set: - Joy Mia 2 - Sensitive Brush Head - Protective Travel Case - Universal Voltage pLink® Charger - 3 oz Philosophy® Purity Made Simple Cleanser - 0.5 oz Ole Henriksen Truth Serum® Collagen Booster - 0.17 Bliss® Triple Oxygen® ex-'glow'-sion!

I am in my mid 30s and have very sensitive, fair skin. At one point years ago I got a terrible sunburn and it has left its mark inn my nose and especially my cheeks leaving them bright pink at all times. My my skin tends to be on the dry side with beginning fine lines. I do get dark eye circles if I do not use an eye cream.when I stay away from irritants I have no blemishes with the exception of hormone induced ones. I can not use retinol, it is too harsh and I scab from it. I have found that that dior products work very well with my skin chemistry. I do not itch and they have a calming effect. I am currently using hydra life with essential one first ( and mask) but an planing on switching to capture total when I run out now that I am hydrated I always use sunscreen now! Are there other products that my be better to use or to use along with to help reduce the redness. I have tried the Clinique redness reducing line and that inflamed my skin within minutes... what at other masks and/ or peeks would be good to try?
I just started using the Clarisonic Mia and am interested in seeing what everyone does with theirs. 1. Which Clarisionc do you have? 2. How often do you use it? 3. What products work best for you? Cleanser? Exfoliator? 4. What is your skin type? I hope something like this hasn't already been posted recently.
I've been reading up a lot about toners and DIY cucumber / green tea toners. I just wanted to hear some personal reviews if anyone's tried it/what they think/ effectiveness. They sound really nice to be. It's all natural/cheap. It does go bad after a few days so I read that refrigerating it would not only feel refreshing on the face but last a little bit longer. But even tossing it isn't a big deal since all the ingredients are really cheap to come by. Also if substituting a lemon for a lime would be okay?
I've been using an Eminence face wash for quite some time, but my current bottle is almost empty - so I'm thinking about trying something else. Does anyone have any thoughts on Omorovicza's Cleansing Foam? I know the line gets rave reviews in some circles, but I'm wondering if the Cleansing Foam is worth the $75 (Canadian). I'd love to know your experiences! Thank you.
So I've started noticing dark spots on my body (i.e abs,legs) and I'm a bit concerned and unsure how to correct this problem? There seems to be a plethora of items to treat this concern for the face but does anyone have any recommendations for something formulated for the rest of the body?
I generally have oily skin. I also have open pores and they get clogged with sebum. I have tried multiple cleansers and they just don't seem to be able to clean out my pores. The only way is when i take a "hot shower" and remove it gently with my finger scraping my skin. I know I shouldn't be doing this but when i put on powder or blush you can see the residue from the clogged pores. I have tried mary kay; 2 different types of cleansers, boscia; 2 different types; etc... I need help. Please advise Thank you'
Its such a blessing to see that positive symbol on your test when you've been trying to conceive. For weeks you glow - mostly due to "morning" (All-day) sickness. Now with the lovely changes my skins seems to have jumped back to the land of a teenager. SPOTS everywhere. On my chest and face and gosh does it make you feel un attractive. I had terrible acne in high school and happily in my early twenties this calmed down. I tried using clean and clear which seemed to aggravate the situation to a while new level. I don't enjoy caking on makeup but lately it helps me just get out the door - - Any suggestions on getting my skin back to some normality?
