If your skin is afflicted with the frying pan syndrome (when your face resembles the bottom of a frying pan after a hard day's work), if loose powder makes your face cakey and finally if you've been dreaming of makeup that was meant exclusively to suit the whims of your oily skin then ladies the answer is: Mattify Cosmetics.A mineral makeup brand dedicated to churning out products for oily skin.And honestly I couldn't be more ecstatic, since I'm afflicted with the worst frying pan syndrome ever these days and Mattify Cosmetics was just what I needed. So you can imagine my joy at receiving Mattify goodies to review.
Mineral makeup is all the rage these days, specially because these do not contain any harmful chemicals and Mattify Cosmetics is all about mineral makeup with the added onus of being the only brand that caters to oily skin needs.
Mattify products contain Kaolin Clay base that absorbs 3 times its weight in oil, making your makeup last longer and preventing your skin from being overly oily.
I received a sample baggie of Mattify Original and full sized jars of Mattify Ultra, Mattify Bronzer and four Mattify Sparkling eye Shadows along with helpful instructions on how to use them.
Here's a sneak peek at each of the products
Mattify Original (Sample Baggie) and Mattify Ultra
The entire line of Mattify Transparent Powder can be worn in five different ways:
- Alone to minimize redness, pores & acne, while also absorbs oil
- Before foundation as primer to prevent acne & protect pores from makeup
- After foundation to create an airbrushed pore less finish and help makeup last
- BEFORE and AFTER foundation for maximum oil absorption and skin clarity
- As an eye shadow primer to prevent creasing and allow for long lasting eye makeup
Mattify Bronzer is a medium toned bronzer that will suit all skin tones.And the best part is that it won't make your skin oily.It can be dusted all over with a fluffy powder brush to fake a sun-kissed glow or applied more precisely by using a powder puff, for targeted "tanning" and a darker golden shimmer.Can also be used with a powder puff or cosmetic wedge to contour and slim the arms, legs, nose and cheeks. And can be added to your favourite lotion to create an all-over glow.The bronzer is formulated with the same base as the original Mattify Loose Powder which means it has excellent staying power and will not irritate even the most sensitive of skin types.
Their range of oil control products are not the only reason why Mattify has won me over.They have an amazing customer service.Prompt with answering all your queries and super friendly, making your shopping experience a delight.And if you need any more reason to shop with them(as if), then they have jaw dropping shipping prices.You get free shipping on all eye shadows anywhere in the world and a flat $1.50 each for the loose powder and bronzer.The powders are also available in super sized jars which will be shipped free anywhere in the world.Recently they have also launched a tinted version of the Mattify Powder which will provide coverage along with oil absorbing prowess, and I'm anticipating these to be as big a hit as their original loose powder.
If the Indian monsoons are anything to go by then Mattify is a definite must have this season.These products pack a punch and will solve all your oily skin woes in a jiffy.And if you have already fallen in love with Mattify, stay tuned for a lovely Mattify surprise coming soon.
