OC8® Professional Mattifying Gel

To keep contestants’ faces shine-free under pressure (and scalding-hot stage lights), makeup artists for shows like American Idol and The Glee Project turn to this mattifying gel. The fast-drying formula creates an intermediate layer that absorbs grease for eight full hours. Use it to score a matte, shine-free look—with or without the help of makeup. Alcohol-free and oil-free, it’s safe for even acne-prone skin. Get ready for your close-up.

Makeup Looked Fresh All Day

I liked this product. My makeup stayed on and looked fresh all day. Only to apply powder once, even in the hot southern humidity.

Loved it!!

My skin is very oily and shiny so I loved this product. It worked well, kept the sine away and I felt like my makeup looked good and fresh all day. I want to purchase it once I gather a few more points.

Wonderful!

I have always had really oily skin on my face. Barely an hour into putting on my makeup I'd see a noticeable amount of shine. This product really works wonders and not only keeps me shine-free throughout the day, but it also helped to make my makeup stay put!

What I did was put on a pea sized amount after applying moisturizer. Then, I applied my makeup as I normally would. I work a 9-5 job, and usually by 10 a.m. I'd have to dab the oil off my face, but with this product I only had to a little bit on my forehead in the afternoon. When meeting up with friends after work I was still shine-free.

I definitely noticed this product's benefits, and kept my skin feeling fresh and clean all day. I would highly recommend it.

Loved the sample so had to buy. Moisturizing and not shiny. Have used a well known product for the last few years and this one won me over!

awsome

I don't know what is in this but it works. I have extremely oily skin and oils were under control for about 4-6 hours. I have very acne prone skin so that is all long time for me. Don't use to much or your make up will look blotchy.

Love this product!

I absolutely love this product! I have always had an issue with make up staying all day and not looking oily at the end of the day, this definitely counteracted that!! I will definitely be looking to purchase this product!!

Does its job

This lightweight formula helps you keep shine free all day. It made my face feel so smooth! Although it worked very well, i think the price is its only downfall.

This gel worked great mostly with my red tinted skin. With this product, my face was not oily all day even in the Texas heat!

Great Product

This mattifying gel works really well. I especially liked using it when the air was hot and muggy. It helped keep my face looking matte while still maintaining a light dewiness!
