It doesn't control my oil but it does take away the dewy look of my BB!
I really hate the dewy look of my SKIN79 Hot Pink BB and it's difficult to find a powder foundation that matches me (used to have MUFE's HD powder but a price increase with a product cut? NO!). This matches perfectly in Ivory, it doesn't leave that silk feel of HD powder but I don't mind. Not like I should be touching my face. I have combination-oily skin right now, so my face being matte is so crucial. I know this foundation used to have micro-fine silver glitter but now it's *just* powder. It seems like nothing will work to control my oil but my makeup does stay in place with this.
Not flat... not matte...
A bit of a misnomer here... this powder is lovely, but i would describe the finish as 'silky' or even 'glowing'... not AT ALL matte.
My skin is somewhere between normal and dry, so it surprises me that a matte finish wasn't achieved!
On the plus side, the shade (01 Ivory) was light enough to match my pallid skin! Ooh hoo!
I am a High End Foundation user, but was curious about this product, I really like it. It covers well and stays less shiny then my high end stuff, the wear time is amazing, and it does not move or clump like other full coverage powders. I do apply with cargos magic brush and dust mineral veil over top but overall does control my super oily skin.
I always had a problem with SPF makeup and flash photography...that's why I gave this one a try. It does not look matte in person,but man does it photograph sooo well (if you use a typical point and shoot digicam that is) this is a perfect powder foundation to use if you are going out at night where you don't really need SPF and you'll be taking photos. Overall,I LOVE IT!:)
not matte at all :/
went to ulta and purchased this product on sale! im always on the lookout for new makeup product that suggest matte for the face since i have oily skin! anyhow i used a rimmel primer under my skin first and then i applied the nyx matte powder! 1hr later i checked my make up and found that this product did not live up to the mattifying affect i was hoping for! my skin was actually more oil slick than usual and it just seemed like my skin ate up the powder...gross i know! im gonna stick with my sephora matte powder and always keep an eye out for new matte powders!
