I have oily/combo skin and I mostly get oily in my t-zone (especially around my nose and chin). I've tried so many different foundations and primer combos but it seems like no matter what I use my foundation always separates and it looks almost like "dusty" on my face. Before I do my makeup I prep my skin by double-cleansing,using a gentle exfoliator,toner,and serums. I let the serums dry down for about 10 min, then apply gel moisturizer (wait another 10min for that to absorb into my skin),then sunscreen. I allow my sunscreen to also set for about 20 min before apply primer. For primer I used a blurring/mattifying primer only on the area where I get only and I really press it into my skin and also let that absorb for a few minutes. After prepping my skin, I do some light color corrector around my nose/under my eyes and applied concealer. Then I set those areas lightly with powder and wait a few minutes. I then apply my foundation with both a brush and a sponge, pressing and buffing it onto my face. For my foundation, I first applied one pump and then just added half a pump or less to build up the coverage I wanted. After I applied my cream contour,cream bronzer,and cream blush and spray it with the Charlotte Tillbury spray and again let it dry down. Then I go over my cream products with the powder versions of them and then again lightly powder my t-zone. The very last thing I did was spray with the One/Size Beauty Setting Spray to finish. Now when I looked close up in the mirror in natural light I already saw my face had that "dusty",separated look. It didn't look like a clean,natural skin like finish at all. Then as I wore my makeup throughout the the day I started noticing so much separation around my nose (I wear glasses too so it was bad) and very bad separation on my chin and upper lip. I don't sweat alot but it is a little warm where I live. But the separation on my chin occurred when I lightly dapped a blotting sheet on my chin, the makeup on my chin completely came off. These are the products I've tried:Haus Labs Foundation Fenty Eaze Drop Skin Tint Fenty Soft Lit Foundation Too Faced Soft Matte Foundation Fenty Soft/True Matte PrimerOne/Size Beauty Secure the Blur PrimerLoreal Mattifying PrimerElf putty primerElf gripping primerMaybelline Fit Me Setting PowderFenty Setting powder I'm starting to think it's not the products I'm using, I feel like I'm doing something wrong in my skin prep and application but I don't know what it is. I even look at my product ingredients to make sure my products are compatible (ie:silicone with silicone) Please help.

@FranchescaPerez @Early access was for Rouge members on Tuesday and then Wednesday it was open to everyone else. From previous experience once that tier is sold out they don’t open up more spots.

@Sunnysmom The long tubes with the gold caps are the Bourjois matte liquid lip inks. They're super pigmented and last, but I sometimes feel like I need to use a lip liner because otherwise, I don't cover both sides of my lips as evenly. The applicator is quite straight and thin, so I'm probably not used to it. Ah yes, I wanted to buy some makeup while I was travelling in Colombia, but my local friends convinced me that I can find much better makeup in France and Canada 😂 The one item I picked up was a matching pH changing lipstick with my friend just for fun. It looked beautiful on her, so I can't wait to try it! @peculiarzmakeup Thank you so much! It was long overdo. Now, every time I open this drawer, I get a huge dose of serotonin 😌

Hey everyone!! I just joined this great age defying community and wanted to share my experiences with Botox and injectables. I’ve been getting Botox since I was 27, and am now 47. I have also done injections in every part of my face using injectables made for each area. I started doing my lips at age 28! I loved it! Please ask me about any of my experiences! I hope I can be helpful to someone out there:)😊Carey

I’m so excited to be part of this one! This may be incredibly wishful thinking but… maybe a sneak peak of Fenty Hair before it becomes available at Sephora? I know it dropped on Fenty direct, but not sure if will always be a direct exclusive 🤔

@itsfi omg the teeny puff is so cute! as for transformative lip toppers, I recently tried the ONE/SIZE by Patrick Starrr Lip Snatcher Hydrating Liquid Lipstick and Lip Gloss Duo . The liquid lipstick is nothing special imo, although it is comfortable and lightweight. The gloss however makes soooooo much of a difference! I don’t know what magic is in there, but I couldn’t believe that I was wearing the same shade when I put the gloss on top. That being said, I wouldn’t recommend the product unless it’s on sale because you’re paying for two products when only one is the standout. I’m hoping at some point the glosses become available separately!
