Hello my oily skin peps! I am on the hunt for something light weight to hydrate my extremely oil skin. I'd prefer it to be a moisturizer specifically without spf so I can use it day or night. I am extremely oily on my entire face and my skin lacks moisture. I've tried drug store brands and countless others from Sephora and Ulta. Nothing seems to balance out my skin. I'm either left feeling "thirsty" or like an oil slick. (I drink plenty of water). I've tried oils and a few essences. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

@jls438The best, hands down primer I have found til this day is TATCHA - The Silk Canvas Protective Primer.. It is amazing on my very oily skin and doesn’t make my foundation on my nose (or anywhere) crack, fade or shine. It does have a high price tag but it is 100% worth it in my opinion because of how amazing it works! If you haven’t already tried it out, I highly recommend you do!

Hey ladies- has anyone else noticed a change in the consistency of the Fenty foundation? My first few bottles were pretty thin and runny and the most recent bottle I got is pretty thick to the point that it doesn’t run down the back of my hand. Anyone else experiencing this? Did I miss the formula changing or something?

@Smokey76 Yes! This is a trick that I use for my glasses. It keeps the makeup on my nose allll day. First, use a pore-filling primer. I love TOUCH IN SOL - No Poreblem Primer for that. Once you lay that down, use the MAC paint pot in soft Ochre. Its actually a cream eyeshadow but I use it to carve out my brows and as an eyeshadow primer. But, it you put a light layer all over your nose, it will allow your foundation to stay allllll day.

@jhaley0517 At the drugstore, the Maybelline Superstay is solid gold. It stays matte for hours! It is full coverage.  I prefer Light/medium and this still allows me to achieve that just by using less product. At Sephora, Double Wear and the Too Faced Peach Perfect foundation are definitely some of my go-to’s. As far as primer, I have 2 Holy Grails; HOURGLASS - Veil Mineral Primer and CANE + AUSTIN - Prime & Protect Mattifying Primer with Broad Spectrum SPF 50. These two keep my skin looking flawless and keeping any oils at bay. Perfect example was yesterday. I live in So Cal and went to the LA County Fair. It was 95 degrees and my makeup stayed put the 9 hours I was there. I used the Cane + Austin for some added SPF. If I wasn’t a mom, I could’ve easily went out that night withou a single touch up!

I've tried and liked Too Faced born this way, never had a problem out of that one I usually forget setting powder but always use setting spray and it was fine. and Revlon 24hr color stay for oily/combination skin, the only thing about that one is I HAD to use a setting powder or it would melt off.

Hi @glamourjock,   You're not alone. I have oily eyelids too and the only thing that has helped me is using an eyelash primer. A good eyelash primer will keep your mascara in place and thicken your lashes. I really like the SEPHORA COLLECTION - LashCraft Lash Primer. It keeps whatever mascara I have on.   Stay Gorgeous, Penelope

Hi @Andreaa20,   I'm an oily girl myself and am always looking for moisturizers that can keep my oiliness at bay. I really love using the TATCHA - The Water Cream or DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini™ Polypeptide Cream moisturizers before applying makeup. I find that they are both lightweight, keeps my skin moisturized, but also doesn't cause me to get more oily. It instantly sinks into the skin and gives off the refreshed feeling which is great for the days where I'm extremely tired. I hope this helps!   Warmest regards, Helen

@Valeriaa0526Unidentified Agree with All Nighter. Deslick I've used, All Nighter has held up. Excess oil typically is dehydrated. More oil is produced to rebalance. What exact skincare are you using? Something may be drying the skin out too much as the culprit.

@amacdYou might want to check out Dr Jart Premium BB balm. It's works great for me and I have oily/combo skin. I use the Premium, but I think there may be a matte formula you'd like better.  I have even used Bare Minerals original foundation or the Mineral veil over it this summer because it  has been so humid!! I hope this helps.

Hi @PrissL,   I really like the Sephora Collection Beauty Amplifier Set and Refresh Spray! It helps set my makeup in place and sometimes, I'll carry it with me to refresh my makeup throughout the day! I also like that it sprays evenly and doesn't leave large droplets on the skin.   https://www.sephora.com/product/beauty-amplifier-set-refresh-spray-P407323   Always, Danee

Hi @sourcandi,   I suggest checking out COVER FX - Power Play Foundation. There are a ton of deeper shades with multiple undertones. It is also a matte foundation but it looks natural and is long wearing.   I also love the LANCôME - Teint Idole Ultra Long Wear Foundation. This is also long wearing and has a great selection of deeper shades.    I hope this helps!    Best Wishes,   Janean
