Let me just say that this product is amazing and a life saver. I don’t know about the rest of you, but my face gets so oily by 12pm (don’t even get me started about what it looks like by 5pm). Anyways, I am constantly on the hunt for a better product that will help control the oil. Just to give you an idea I have to use both a mattifying setting powder and spray, and then I need to reapply the powder typically around mid-day. I’ve gone through so many products promising me that it’ll control my oil, but guess what they always lie. It’s truly disappointing when I walk into the bathroom and peak in the mirror and see my T zone completely shiny after applying a new hopeful product to my face that first time.
I am happy to report though that the Make Up For Ever Super Matte Loose Powder is a game changer. I haven’t bought the same mattifying setting powder once. Since I’ve been buying setting powder (about 8-9 months) I’ve constantly been trying different brands looking for the perfect one. Ladies, look no further this one is amazing.
They have 3 colours. There’s both a light (Sand 14) and darker colour (Apricot Beige 52), and they also have a translucent natural (#12) colour. This is the one I bought as it is advertised as being for all skin colours because it just blends in.
I still apply both setting powder and setting spray because it’s just become a routine now. I will be posting a review for the setting spray soon because I’m also in love with it and I don’t think it’s a very well-known brand. But overall, the loose powder is great and honestly if you have oily skin and are looking for a good setting powder I highly recommend that you try this one. I won’t lie and say that it keeps me matte all day, but it keeps my face matte a lot longer than any other product so far. Unless I see a rave review about another product for the first time I will be repurchasing this product.
I’m always open for suggestion for oil control products! What do you use, and how well does it work for you?
