I bought this product because when I tested it out at my local mac counter, it INSTANTLY made me matte. It was a miracle in a squeeze tube. However, I found that it didn't really keep me matte for more than an hour. I thought that it might be because of the foundation that I used so I tried it one day when I didn't have any makeup on. Yes, there was isn't matte-itfication, but after about an hour, the oil on my nose was in dire need of blotting. Honestly, the pressed blot powder is so much better in keeping away the oilies than this product! Would not buy again!
