I wish I would've read the reviews for this process before I had it done because it was a total waste of time. Until Prescriptives makeup came out, I always had problems finding foundation that...

I am very glad to see that I'm not the only Sephora patron to have issues with the Pantone Color IQ. I've never been matched in the store because I have a negative history of being horribly...
