I am forever in search of something to stop my shiny forehead. Mattifying primers and setting sprays are the only things keeping my foundation from melting off around 2 hours into wear time. I picked this up to test it out and see how long it could keep me matte throughout the day. Living in Alabama means I am usually walking around in ridiculously humid heat, so I need any products to work double time to keep me from becoming an oil slick.
This really impressed me right off the bat. I applied it only to my forehead, nose and chin, and it sat beautifully under every foundation I tried it with. It kept me looking very matte for the first few hours, and somewhere between a satin matte and fully satin finish the rest of the day. I never look oily or greasy at all when I use this, even when I walk to class in the heat. I don’t recommend this to anyone with dry skin though, it is very stiff and tacky right after application.
$15.00 for 0.40 oz
I bought this mini travel size tube instead of the full size because I wanted to really test it out before committing $36 to something that might just break up and fade away after an hour. After loving this so much, I will most likely be buying the full size bottle in the very near future.
Let me know your favorite mattifying products, I am desperate for more!
