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.

Great for oily skin
Sampled

My skin gets oily after a few hours, even with primer. This definitely helped keep shine at bay!

LOVE
Sampled

I've only used the sample and tried it out this morning before work and I am in LOVE!! I have really oily skin and have to reapply powder throughout the day. I didn't have to not even once today! I will be buying this product!

Good at keeping oil/shine away
Sampled

Trying to put on foundation after using this was difficult. My normal foundation was hard to spread (sort of like the cheap Halloween cream makeup). It did make my make up look smooth and almost flawless. My makeup looked just as good 5 hours later even on a hot humid rainy summer day.However, i did notice that it showed some fine lines around my eyes that are normally not noticeable with or without makeup.

Made me breakout
Sampled

I love, love, love primers. I was super excited to try this one. Gave me the worst breakout I have had in years. By the end of the day my chin and forehead had huge bumps. I have to say I have so disappointed. Threw the rest of the sample away.

Fantastic!
Sampled

I was in dire need of something to control the oily sheen to my face, and I finally found something that works! I use this after moisturizer, but under primer, and it keeps my face shine free all day! I can't rave enough about this product. I will definitely be purchasing this!

Awesome

I really really really liked this product. I am a wedding photographer and this product kept my make up on and my face sweat free for a full wedding. I just wished it wasn't so expensive.
