Although it's named "matte" and therefore implies that it is more than just a primer because it will provide extra oil control, it doesn't hold up on very oily skin.

I've used multiple matte gels and primers and this one ranks low for oil control. Now, if it didn't claim to be 'matte,' that wouldn't be a problem. But it does. It likely works …

OMG - THIS IS THE HOLY GRAIL FOR ALL-DAY OIL CONTROL.

I have never been so inspired to write a review. If you have seriously oily skin and your top priority is long-lasting oil control, this mattifier WORKS. It's the most effective product I've ever purchased because it actually DOES what you dare hope to DREAM.

My 'Before Becca' routine: Apply Hour Glass …

This is for the IS Clinical Pro Heal Serum

I'm 46 and have red, inflamed, acne-prone, sensitive skin with a super oily t-zone.

My esthetician recommended this, so I have used it for a couple of years and have been very impressed. It cools and soothes my skin. it helps control acne break-outs and improves overall skin tone. It just feels 'healthy' for my skin …

REVIEW UPDATE July 2017: I tried some other moisturizers and kept coming back to this one. I've grown to really like it so I improved my review. I have very oily skin and this is a very light moisturizer. The liquidness is the right amount and works well under makeup. I do believe it is good for my skin and decided to keep using it.

Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation – Shell:

I have been using MAC NC35, so that was my comparison.

PROS: The coverage was medium and looked natural. It kept oil at bay as well as MAC or a bit better. I didn’t separate or pool into patches. Overall, I thought it was fairly decent.

CONS: Very limited color selection. Shell was a bit too pinkish for me …

NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation – Santa Fe

PROS: Good coverage that tones down redness well.

CONS: It sucks. Thin, watery consistency makes it VERY difficult to apply, even when mixed with clear mattifying gel and applied using a foundation brush. It dries quickly and sticks to dry patches. It pooled into more patchy areas after long wear. Oil control was …

Estee Lauder Double Wear Light - #3:

PROS: It provides good coverage but is not as heavy and cakey as Double Wear. Oil control is good, but not as good as DW.

CONS: Like DW, it still has a tendency to settle in, and magnify, large pores or other problem areas. And although it’s more natural looking than DW, I still felt it looked obvious. Very small color selection. But a …

I’m 46 and have very red, sensitive, acne-prone skin with an extremely oily t-zone and large pores – yet dry patches around chin and mouth. I have raised acne scars and many red scar spots. I’ve used MAC Studio Fix Fluid NC35 for many years. It’s a bit too yellow for me, but I chose it intentionally to balance out the red. I decided to sample different foundations to see what I might be …Read more
