Allergic reaction to Fenty foundation


Hey I just tried the fenty matte foundation and woke up this morning covered completely it hives, I was wondering if anyone else has had any similar reactions to the product

Re: Allergic reaction to Fenty foundation

Yes I am having the same issue. I purchased a bunch too and now have to return

Re: Allergic reaction to Fenty foundation

Oh that sucks @Mckayla35 ! I tried the Fenty matte foundation back in 2018 (or 2017? don't remember exactly) and it caused cystic acne breakouts (dime-sized pimples all over my face). I knew that it was from the product as the breakouts occurred within 24 hours after applying the product and in places that I would rarely get cystic acne breakouts.

I am hesitant to try any more Fenty beauty products since that experience.

Oddly enough, the fat water toner, with its mixed reviews, helped me soo much with my acne marks and hormonal acne 😍 🤩. It literally worked better than some prescription medicine 😲. I also really liked the cleanser, despite its mixed reviews, although it is expensive (for me!). The duality of a brand 😂


You're not alone. Wish you all the best in recovering from the hives! 💙 💕
