@Ispend2much6 I have a sentimental association with MAC. It made makeup really accessible to me. When I was 16 my mom took me to MAC to buy “the basics” so some foundation, blush, a lipstick, eyeliner, mascara, and some shadows. Then I got my makeup done at MAC for my prom. Slowly but surely I ventured into really colorful cosmetics because of MAC eyeshadows and lipsticks by buying the single shadows and adding them to my zpalette, and turning in the finished products to get more free colorful lipsticks with the back to MAC program. At this point it’s been 15 years of MAC eyeshadows dominating my collection. I happen to buy the Viseart Warm EDIT Eyeshadow Palette because I saw the brand on BIC and it’s the perfect combination of colors I love. I was astonished by the quality and would agree it’s better than any other brand I’ve used. But MAC still wins my ❤️.

Targeted skin concern: needs firming 😆This is a thinner material sheet with lots of extra clear serumScent was cherry but seems a touch less potent than I rememberedFit was good, could of been a touch wider at the cheek areaWear time is 20 minutesMy skin absorbed about half the serum, then I massaged the remaining into my skinDidn't notice any firming, I did see brighter skin a touch more hydrated, not too moisturizing, and no lasting tackinessI do have a couple "spots" aka pimples that definitely felt like they were drying out after using itI would absolutely repurchase these, especially to use to target blemishes, which was not my initial intention 🙌

Hi @amandadlc ! Are you sure you have "fungal acne” and not true acne on your forehead? Have you been diagnosed by a dermatologist or other doctor? Fungal acne is really a yeast overgrowth called malassezia folliculitis. Derms usually prescribe oral or topical medication, or recommend washing the affected skin with shampoos or body/face washes that contain antifungal ingredients like ketoconazole (Nizoral shampoo), selenium sulfide (Selsun Blue or Head & Shoulders shampoo, and I think Neutrogena makes one), or pyrithione zinc (Vanicream Free & Clear shampoo, or Vanicream Z-Bar). Sephora doesn’t sell any of those, but they do carry some sulfur treatments. Sulfur is antifungal (and antibacterial, which is why it’s sometimes used for true acne). Of the products Sephora carries, I’d only use SUNDAY RILEY Saturn Sulfur Spot Treatment Mask 0.5 oz/ 15 mL or Peter Thomas Roth Therapeutic Sulfur Acne Treatment Mask , though I think both are overpriced. You can find much cheaper sulfur bars elsewhere, like the Dermisa Sulfur Bar. If your small bumps are true acne instead, here are some usual go-to ingredients: Salicylic acid (BHA): Paula's Choice Mini Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant 1 oz/ 30 mL , The INKEY List Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) Blemish + Blackhead Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL Benzoyl peroxide: Paula's Choice CLEAR Daily Skin Clearing Treatment with 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide 2.25 oz/ 67 mL Sulfur: I already mentioned a few 🙂 Azelaic acid: Paula's Choice 10% Azelaic Acid Booster 1 oz/ 30 mL , The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% 1 oz/ 30 mL Retinoids: the most common OTC options are retinol, granactive retinoid, and adapalene, and there are many products out there... The INKEY List Retinol Anti-Aging Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL , The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid* 2% Emulsion 1 oz/ 30 mL , The Ordinary Retinol 0.2% in Squalane 1 oz/ 30 mL , First Aid Beauty FAB Skin Lab Retinol Serum 0.25% Pure Concentrate 1 oz/ 30 mL , Paula's Choice RESIST Barrier Repair Moisturizer with Retinol 1.7 oz/ 50 mL , Paula's Choice CLINICAL 1% Retinol Treatment 1 oz/ 30 mL ... outside of Sephora, you can find adapalene at your local drug store sold as Differin or La Roche-Posay Effaclar. If you choose to start retinol or adapalene, use it just once or twice a week for a few weeks. Then increase usage to 3 times a week, and keep gradually increasing usage til you're at a comfy-for-you frequency (nightly, every other night, or whatever). You might notice some purging, aka new acne suddenly popping up; think of it as the retinoid evicting bacteria from your pores. You might also go through "retinolization," a fun period of increased dryness, flaking, and irritation; this shouldn't last longer than a month, and there are ways to reduce it, like applying your retinoid over your moisturizer to buffer the side effects.
