All About Matt Fixing Compact Powder

I'm 55 and still have insanely oily skin, so I couldn't live without a good blotting powder. My HG in this category is Soap & Glory "One Heck of a Blot," but "All About Matt!" works very well on my white-as-sour-cream NW15 complexion. It doesn't minimize shine for as long as "One Heck of a Blot," but it does dim the wattage for several hours, which is a boon for me. It's also cruelty-free and inexpensive; I don't want to be without it.

I started out liking this quite a bit. It volumized nicely, applied easily, and just about rinsed off with water at the end of the day. But after wearing it for several consecutive days, I noticed my eyes felt like there was *something* in them. They were irritated and it wouldn't go away. I switched back to an old standby mascara, and the irritation went away. Not sure what ingredient in this caused it, but it was definitely there. My eyes aren't prone to problems, and this is the only mascara that's ever given me grief. So - if it doesn't bother your eyes, it's a nice cheap mascara. For me, I had to bid a sad farewell to it.

All Eyes On Me Multi-Effect Mascara - Waterproof

Rubbish brush. Sparse bristles means that the lashes aren't properly coated. There is probably 50% less bristles than on an usual brush. This is meant to be a multi purpose mascara (curl, lengthen) - it doesn't fulfil any of these promises. The product clumps around lashes, had to comb out using an old Clinique brush. Its cheap for a reason - but actually a complete waste of money
