Review:Mary Kay Oil Mattifier

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Hi guys, so I want to do a review on a product i absolutely love and it gives me joy that I can wear my makeup for long hours without shining in some areas on my face.Its the Mary Kay Oil Mattifier.
What Mary Kay says: This lighweight formula dries to a natural, matte finish and controls shine for at least 8 hours.Apply sparingly on shine-prone areas after moisturizer.Allow to dry.Reapply as needed.
My honest opinion:This is a great product.Ive been putting it on hold for the longest time because I wasnt sure it was going to work for me (believing I had the oilest face on earth).I had to  buy it when I got tired of looking for solutions and I refused to jump on the Milk of Magnesia wagon after I read some side effects it could bring.It is lightweight as the pack says which is so important because we I still have sunscreen,foudation, concealer and powder going on the same face so I don't need a heavy product at all.

 Its a pearly-pink 17ml tubed product and has a pointed tip so you can control quantity.A little is required.I personally apply a little all over then let it dry and then I go in once more on my t zone and cheeks because those are the parts where I shine the most.
 I wore this from 12 noon till 8pm and my makeup stayed on like a dream.I was shocked when I kept checking and I wasn't getting oily.Yes, when it got  hot and sweaty I had sweat but once I dabbed with a handkerchief I din't find any oil on my face.
It is whitish when applied but blends out to a smooth colourless finish and becomes matte.*please dont mind my picture above, I was in a hurry *
 Another thing is its really affordable for me. (I cant speak for everyone).
Price:N1500/$10 approx.
 Will I buy this again?
Yes ke!! And again and again.
Where I got this from :A store near my house.Its pretty popular.

Hope this helped?
Thanks for checking in.
