Mattify Cosmetics Review

I have combination oily-dry skin, which makes finding the right beauty products a challenge. My t-zone gets very oily, while my cheeks tend to be dry. It's important to find the right products that won't aggravate both problems!

I came across Mattify Cosmetics after searching for a better powder to set my foundation. After just one hour of applying foundation and powder, my skin will become shiny and oily right away. I was tired of constantly blotting away the oil and reapplying powder. This made my skin look cakey and unappealing!

Mattify generously sent me five products to review. I received:
  • Transparent setting powder for sensitive skin - vegan
  • Tinted powder for oily fair/medium skin
  • Bronzer
  • Eyeshadow (Amethyst Moon)
  • Transparent setting powder for ultra oily skin
I was excited to try Mattify's transparent powders because they contain a kaolin clay base that absorbs up to three times its weight in oil. The best part is their products are free from irritants commonly found in other cosmetics, such as bismuth, mica, and pearl powder.

Mattify's transparent powder can be worn four different ways:

Alone - to cover redness, pores, and to absorb oil
Before foundation - as a primer 
After foundation - to set your make-up
Before and after foundation - for the ultimate oil protection 

The eyeshadow is a great multi-tasking product. You can also use it as lip gloss or as nail polish!

To use it as lip gloss, pour a small amount of the eyeshadow onto a piece of paper or napkin. Dab your lip gloss wand into the eyeshadow, and apply it to your lips!

For nail polish, take the nail polish brush out of the bottle and dab it in the eyeshadow (on a piece of paper or napkin). Apply to your nails for a gorgeous shimmering color!

Check out my tutorial on these five products:
