4 Ways to Use Custom Blot Drops
  Hey Beauty Talk Babes! Have you tried our summertime superstar, Custom Blot Drops? It zaps excess shine whenever and wherever. Oh, and whatever, too. It mattifies your products as well as your skin!  Here are 4 ways to start! 1. Ridin’ Solo   Feel like an au natural day, perhaps poolside or at the beach? Add a few Custom Blot Drops  onto your palm, then press it on your shiny, oil-prone zones.  Now you can rock your amazing bare face without looking like you spent too much time over the grill!   Pro-Tip: Use it as a nighttime blotting treatment for super oily skin to go to bed feeling fresh. 3. Mix & Matte   Do you have a foundation that could use a little extra shine control?  Mix in a few drops of Custom Blot Drops into your foundation to lessen the shine and give yourself an all over matte finish.   3. Ace Your Base   You might be surprised to learn that applying Custom Blot Drops BEFORE foundation will also help control excess shine.. It’s the perfect base before your base. Use your fingers to press a few drops all over your complexion. Follow with your primers and foundations. Have you tried this technique? Tell us by commenting below. 4. Shine Shield Not a fan of using powder to set your foundation? Use Custom Blot Drops as the final step of your routine and lock in your makeup for all-day shine control. This works best for normal to mildly oily skin.  If you have very oily skin, you should continue to bake, set, & finish with translucent setting powder.  If it works, don’t change it      If you’re touching up throughout the day always remember. If you swipe, you wipe. So press the product onto the oily parts of your skin and avoid rubbing it on. Tati truly explains it best. Watch her video ( https://youtu.be/cCc7txXQZkg)  to see how well Custom Blot Drops held up on her skin throughout the day. ---   Now that you’re in-the-know about Custom Blot Drops, tell us--how many ways have you tried or will now try?  Are you using them in creative ways we’ve missed here?  Let us know!

New Sunday Riley Products?
  So I was browsing Instagram today and saw something very exciting!! There were several pictures of new Sunday Riley products that I haven't seen mentioned anywhere before. One was an oil (possibly replacing Artemis, since it's being retired?) called UFO Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil. It's a 1.5% salicylic acid dry oil aimed at oily to combination skins and is supposed to target blackheads, acne and signs of aging.   There's also a interesting sounding product called Martian Mattifying Gel Toner, though I couldn't find a clear picture of it. Apparently the oil and the toner have already launched in some Sephora stores!   I know there are a lot of Sunday Riley lovers here, so I thought it was strange that I haven't heard anyone talking about this! Neither Sephora nor Sunday Riley has mentioned the products at all, so perhaps the stores put it out too early?? I'm very curious, does anyone have any information about it?   *Photo credits go to Themakeuprepublicofficial on Instagram

Anyone use more than one facial oil?
I'm currently using only one oil, and at night at that - the Boscia Tsubaki one. I have sensitive combination skin on the oily side (but dry spots...). However, Sunday Riley just came out with the UFO Oil and I've been sampling it and I love it. It's great for my easily congested chin acne prone skin and I'm teetering on the edge of purchasing the full size lol T_T That being said, I'm also considering Sunday Riley's Juno Oil, since winter is coming. I know there's Flora and Luna too, but I'm allergic to avocados and that might extend to the oils, and both products contain avocado oil. I'm also looking into getting the Herbivore Botanicals Lapis Oil, to use during the day since I currently am only using UFO at night. Or something to switch around using UFO with so my skin doesn't get too tolerant. Anyone have any experiences using multiple facial oils? Does it work okay? I would probably also use a light oil-free moisturizer with these oils since my skin does not like heavier ones at all. Thanks in advance!

Kat Von D Lock it Foundation or Becca Ever Matte Shine Proof Foundation ?
I have extremely sensitive skin + oily acne prone skin. I tried Estee Lauder Double Wear and it made me break out so much I got white painful bumps all over my face. I think it might have been an allergic reaction to some ingredients. So I wanted to try a matte medium to full cover foundation and I'm debating between Kat Von D Lock it Foundation and Becca Ever Matte Shine Proof Foundation. Which one should I get ?

Mattifying Moisturizer That Mattifies and Doesn't Cake??
I suffer from an extremely oily T-zone and acne scars, so need to use a full-coverage foundation.  I have gone through so many products trying to find something that will smooth out my face and not melt immediately.  The best I've found so far (and they're not great) is either Laura Mercier Silk Creme or Tarte Amazonian Clay foundations and Smashbox Photo Finish Oil-Free Pore Minimizing primer.  BUT I can not find a moisturizer that actually mattifies and/or doesn't look cakey with foundation.   I'm using Kate Somerville toner and was put on a First Aid Beauty skin care regimen after my SECOND Sephora makeover (the products aren't doing much for me).  I'm also using Josie Maran argan oil at night (also not helping). Moisturizers I've tried are Sephora, Clinique, Caudalie, Peter Thomas Roth, First Aid Beauty. None mattify and all look cakey with foundation.  And yes, I leave at least 15 minutes before applying each step to try and allow them to dry. I am using a foundation brush to apply foundation, and patting it with a beauty blender.  Nothing works!   Any suggestions?  I'm at the end of my rope.

How to deal with oily skin?
Hello friends,   I've always had relatively oily skin, but it has gotten especially oily this past month or so. I wash my face with cleanser twice everyday, and I have also tried a number of different masks (from Caudalie, Caolion, etc.). I was wondering if anybody could recommend a good foundation/translucent powder (or any makeup product, really) that could help minimize my oiliness? Something light or natural would be preferable, as I've never really worn makeup before. Mask recommendations would be appreciated as well! Thanks!

Skin Care
Hello! I'm 24 years old & I have combo oily skin. Some months ago, I had a really bad breakout due to stress (cystic acne-like) and only lasted like 2 or 3 months thanks to some treatments my dermatologist recommended (antibiotics, prescribed face wash and topical ointments). Now my skin is under control; I haven't had a bad breakout in, I would say, 3 months? I only have one or two pimples that will show up when my period is about to start or if I'm ovulating. I would like to use something that doesn't mistreat my skin (that doesn't cause too much redness, dryness and doesn't make me breakout), that controls the oils and prevents acne. My question is: Which is better suited for me,  Clinique Great Skin, Great Deal Set for Combination Oily Skin (I TEM 1599422) or Clinique   Acne Solutions Clear Skin System Starter Kit ( ITEM 1027499) ? Oh, and I also live on an island, so it's always hot and I don't know if that information helps for when you are trying to help me. Thank you all in advance!

Looking for gentle skin-care routine for oily/acne-prone/very-sensitive skin in 20s
My skin is the bane of my existence. I have tried low and top-shelf solutions, all natural, Proactive, Acutane, creative visualization, raw veganism (ewwww) and nothing works. my pimples are small, around my hair and jaw-line. I also have a scattering of little flesh-toned bumps all over my face. My Clairisonic used to take care of those, but it seems it's not effective anymore. My skin is also VERY oily. I drink tons of water, don't smoke, workout regularly, have a relatively healthy diet, etc., and I get plenty of sleep. I do however, have a lot of stress (work 50+ hrs a week, in grad school). I've also started getting little pimples on my neck which never happened before. Currently I'm using the Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber De-Tox cleanser, Proactiv toner and the Shisheido Ibuki moisturizer. It worked for the first few weeks, but now my skin is worse than ever and the moisturizer just feels sticky on my skin.    I need help! It's so expensive to keep trying new products only to have them fail and the Sephora staff always recommends products specially formulated for acne but those harsh ingredients just dry my skin and make it itchy and more prone to breakout.    Any suggestions for a gentle, effective regimen?   Thanks!!!

Looking for a skin care routine.........
Hello beauties, I need your help with my skin care routine. I didn't care much about until a couple months ago! I live close to Ottawa and in Germany. Every couple months I fly, which makes my skin very dry for a Dareus afterwards! Any recommendations what I can do here?   Right now, I just use a moisturizer from nivea for combination skin. I have a special moisturizer though that I put on just when I wear makeup. It's a German brand. It makes the makeup last longer too. To clean I use a cleanser/facewash from Neutrogena. Extra gentle. I was thinking of buying the cleanser from Cetapil because I heard good things about it..... But I haven't really found a moisturizer that I really really like. And I'm looking for a real skincare routine! Right now, I try the philosophy moisturizer. Hope in a jar! That's so far the best I ever had. (When I'm in Canada) When I'm in Canada my face is just a like oily but in Germany mostly an hour after I applied the make-up or cream it is very very oily. If I wouldn't have makeup on, I probably would wash my face! Lol But the skin in my nose is so dry (just when I'm in Germany).   What can you recommend? Thank you!

Silicone Primers Help
I have oily skin in entire t-zone, and some pores on cheeks. I have tried so many primers to help. I read everywhere silicone helps with my issues. So I keep trying, and swear all they do is make my makeup slide off. My makeup looks perfect after application, but within an hour yuck. I do not like heavy matte foundations either.    Anyone else find primers and foundations with silicones just don't work for their oily skin? I have a good skincare routine and just can't find a makeup routine that works. Or maybe I just have to accept I will have to blot several times a day forever.
