Man...for $50 I was expecting/hoping for something that actually WORKED at controlling the oillies. Unfortunately, THIS does not work for me. I have tried before makeup, applying after makeup, and it does nothing to keep oillies at bay. The closest thing I have found that helps is Origin's Matte control. I will not be repurchasing this Cosme Decorte again.

This is an amazing primer for oily skins.
It is made by the higher tier of Kosť, a Japanese brand. The English description on the 40g tube describes the product as a "Matte lasting gel, turning into powder; oil-free formula."
I have oily, acne-prone skin. I usually use MAC Prep + Prime SPF 50 and that keeps me matte for 4-6 hours before I need to blot. So far, with this, I stay matte for 8-10 hours. It leaves a whitish cast on my skin, which is not a problem because I wear foundation over it. However, if someone wore this alone, it may pose a problem.
I was fortunate to receive this in an international swap, but from what I've seen from eBay, this goes for roughly $40-50 USD.
For what it's worth, this was voted as Harper's Bazaar's Best all-day Mattifer for Oil Control / Pore Refining in its 2007 Beauty Awards.
