When it comes to shine, there’s a thin line between a dewy, radiant complexion and looking like you moonlight as an auto-mechanic. To stay on this side of an oil spill, we rely on Youngblood’s Anti-Shine Mattifier. The balm-like formula keeps oil in check all day long while upping your makeup’s staying power. The translucent hue seamlessly blends in with all skin tones and leaves behind a satiny finish.
This is really awesome. At first, it seemed odd to be rubbing on a balm to keep my face from being oily, but it is truly the first effective mattifier I've ever used. I live in a tropical climate and it kept me matte all day long, even when I was spending most of my time outside. Plus it smells vaguely of rice, which is pleasant and not overpowering. Definitely recommend for very oily gals.5
I tried this for several days hoping it would help under my makeup, but it actually felt kind of greasy to me, and didn't really help the shine factor. Disappointed.2
I am a dolphin rescuer who specializes on the Gulf coast. Since BP-gate, I have been especially busy. Actually, the description of staying "this side of an oil spill" is incredibly offensive to me, but que sera sera.
Anyway, so due to my adventures in the Gulf, I get terribly oily skill. This anti-shine mattifier does nothing to solve that issue. Thus, I cannot recommend.
I like the smell of this product...the rest of it is just okay. It does instantly mattify my face when I put it on, but it makes putting makeup over it a little chalky. I also didn't notice a significant difference later in the day from when I didn't use the product - still shiny a couple hours later. Also the size of this product is not as large as I thought it would be for the price.3
I have an oily t zone. This stuff really worked well. I put it on under my makeup. Throughout the day I did have to use blotting papers but I don't think that's the products lack to mattify just that I have a really oily t zone.4
Not really sure if this goes under your makeup or over, I liked it but i'm confused on how to use it effectively.3
I have been lloking for a mattifier for a while. I thought I had found one in this but it isnt quite the one. Although it is the besty I have found so far. When I put it under my makeup it only controls oil and shine for alf of the day. It lasts longer when I put it over my makeup but this is difficult because I can only pat it on or I rub off some of my makeup (I only wear tinted mositurizer and a light powder). i like the affect but I wish it were in a different form. A spray mattifier maybe? I used a spray primer once it was nice.3
So far I haven't really noticed a difference with this product. I live in a very hot and humid area so some shine is expected but I'm a little disappointed in the effectiveness of this product.3
This product is great for everyday use. I normally put it on before work and I feel it keeps me less shiny throughout the day. It feels so light and is easily applied even when I am getting ready at 3 in the morning and not really thinking or functioning.4
This product is great but not in the dead heat of summer. I do like the matte finish it gives me under my foundation without being chalky but it doesn't last all day in the heat of summer. I will try it again in the fall and see if I like it better.3
