I think it depends on your skin type honestly because some masks affect my skin and some don’t if you have sensitive skin then it’s more likely to affect it:)

@Anastasiya13 The funny thing is, I wouldn't have been so bummed about lack of interactivity (let alone not having time between sessions to be interactive) had Sephora not marketed this event as interactive. Some virtual conferences are marketed mostly as educational or talent/skill-building, which sets a different expectation. I'm so used to online work-related classes (took LOTS of them throughout my 20-year career 😂), I wouldn't have expected any interaction with other Sephoria attendees had Sephora marketed the event differently—and I would've been fine with it. I think expectations were set wrong for this event. And yes, definitely hope any future virtual event like this is planned early enough to build in more interactivity. There are various ways to do that: a few simple 2-4 player games, live chat rooms for all sessions (even the prerecorded ones), a video chatroom (could've been held in one room of the house—perhaps the backyard), even a phone conference bridge. Would've been cool to see attendees' names/avatars roaming the house and have a way to interact with them—though I honestly didn't miss that much because I had no time between sessions anyway. I don't wanna ding Sephora too hard because, if I recall correctly, they didn't have a ton of time to plan this virtual Sephoria. They could've pushed the launch date out farther, but I realize they had to work with brand-participants' availability. Still, I'm very surprised the idea of virtual Sephoria wasn't already in the works when it was first brought up on BIC.

@lala651 What's your entire skincare routine (brand + product names)? My oily zone is on and around my nose; that's where my visible pores are, and that area can quickly become a grease puddle. Thanks to genetics, I can't completely stop that area from producing more oil than the rest of my face. (Eh, some of us simply have more active sebaceous glands than others.) But here's how I control it: SpoilerHydrate oily skin - Whenever my oily zone's dehydrated, it produces more oil than usual. That's my skin trying to use sebum as a hydrator. What my skin really needs is more hydration. My favorite hydration method is to apply humectants (ingredients that attract moisture) to damp skin. Good humectants include hyaluronic acid, PCA, polyglutamic acid, trehalose, urea, peptides, aloe vera, and honey. One of my favorite humectant-heavy products is The Ordinary Buffet Anti-Aging Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL : I use it on my whole face and neck most mornings. Apply moisturizer while skin's damp - This helps seal in hydration. During warm weather, my oily zone (and the rest of my face) likes lightweight moisturizers, especially Paula's Choice CLEAR Oil-Free Moisturizer. Other lightweight options to consider are dimethicone-based moisturizers like CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion or CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion (can be used day or night). My favorite moisturizer for cooler weather is Vanicream Daily Facial Moisturizer, which is squalane-based. In the summer, that Vanicream moisturizer makes my oily zone feel greasy, but it's great the rest of the year for my whole face. Use sunscreen instead of moisturizer - You should use sunscreen daily anyway, all year long. But this summer, I mostly skipped AM moisturizers and just used my sunscreen as a moisturizer. I made sure to use a sunscreen that had at least one good moisturizing ingredient, like Supergoop! Mini Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 PA+++ 20 mL (dimethicone and shea butter). Once the weather cools off, I'll have to go back to layering a true moisturizer under my sunscreen. Try niacinamide for oil control - Niacinamide can do several good things for skin, including oil management (but not oil elimination). It might already be in most of your skincare products, so check the ingredient lists. You can try a standalone niacinamide serum like The Ordinary 10% Niacinamide, Paula's Choice 10% Niacinamide Booster, or The INKEY List Niacinamide Oil Control Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL. I like Good Molecules Niacinamide Brightening Toner a lot: it contains 3% niacinamide plus other good ingredients for my particular skin. Clay masking - This won't stop your pores from producing oil throughout the day, but clay masks can absorb excess oil. I apply a rinse-off clay mask just to my oily zone once a week or so. My favorites are Origins Clear Improvement® Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores 2.5 oz/ 75 mL , The INKEY List Kaolin Mask 1.7 oz/ 50 mL , and Paula's Choice Pore Clarifying Charcoal Gel Mask.

My favorites are , , and Paula's Choice Pore Clarifying Charcoal Gel Mask. If your cleanser's too harsh (leaves your face feeling dry, stripped, and/or tight), it might make your skin overproduce oil to "correct" that dryness. That's partly why I asked what skincare products you currently used: some of your existing products might be working against your skin.

@flavibabi I get frustrated frequently because lipsticks never look the way I think they will on me, as I have very cool-toned, pigmented lips.I have found that using an opaque product underneath my gloss or lipstick can help me achieve the lip look I want.Danessa Myricks Beauty Colorfix Eye, Cheek & Lip Cream Pigment come in 33 shades, and are wonderful. They do not budge once applied ( as long as you use the matte shades.) These are used for the lips and all over the face; you could probably find at least afew that might help you accomplish your lip goals.Also, I've successfully used #SEPHORA COLLECTION Cream Lip Stain to use as a base shade under a lipstick to make it look pinkish nude instead of the usual orange it showed up on my lips. I hope this helps!
