Oh- this sounds great! Has anyone ever used these products? Do they work well?

I know, I'm just really impatient...and it'll probably be a few years before we get one in Århus anyway

The same brands as in all other Sephoras? You can always check out their website...maybe the US gets more brands, but it's pretty much the same I suspect

yeah, pretty much it seems. I was living in Istanbul for the last 5 months and there were a few brands (Bare Minerals/Escentuals comes to mind) that weren't available in Turkey.

But there were a few brands in Turkey (Shishedo, YSL) that aren't at the Sephora in my home city in the US. so who knows what you'll get! Either way, it's awesome to have a Sephora around.

^But I bet Shiseido and YSL are available in other department stores though I think Shiseido should have some nice pale shades.

true. For all I know, YSL and shisheido might be available in other sephoras!

So right now I'm using Neutrogena Age Shield SPF 70, which is an unnecessarily high SPF but it was on sale and the SPF 45 wasn't. I mix it with Aveeno Ultra Calming SPF 15 because they both have a 3.0 percent avobenzone content which is the highest percentage allowed. I was using a good european brand that has much better UVA blockers but it made me look soooo greasy I just use it as a body SPF now.

With SPF 70 I'm definitely covered for UVB. the avobenzone is a chemical UVA blocker but I'd like to chase it with a physical blocker like titanium dioxide.

I've been wearing Physicians' Formula SPF 50 powder foundation which has something like 21% titanium dioxide, a physical UVA sunscreen. but it looks really orange on my skin and makes it oily right away :/

do any other companies make good titanium or zinc oxide powders that anyone knows of?

I just bought my beloved Bobbi Brown corrector in Light Bisque again. And instead of buying their concealer I went for MAC Select Cover Up in NW20...I think I'll need a NW15 for winter though. Select Cover Up dries really matte, which is great if you have oily skin or if you don't like to powder.

I am so tempted to buy the corrector next time I am at the Bobbi Brown counter. I have always loved the creamy concealer, but I have a friend who recently told me I would like the corrector, too.
Do you think it works well for shadows around the eyes? And would you use them together?

Babe, that's what's it's made for I have a kidney disease, so some days I look like I've been punched...literally. This is the only thing that makes me look like I'm not a terminal cancer patient.

The corrector and concealer are supposed to be used together. I did a small tutorial here: http://forums.thefashionspot.com/sho...&postcount=280

The whole deal is that the corrector cancels out the blueish tones underneath your eyes, and the yellow concealer takes away the last bit of darkness and makes it look like skin, if you get what I mean. The corrector on its own isn't ideal for me since the rest of my face is very yellow-toned.
