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.

I like how lightweight this product is. When I used it I didn't feel like I had put any products on my face. I would buy this product.

Cool product

I like this product. I get oily during the day so it's nice to have the protection.

Surprised it worked!
Sampled

I was skeptical of this product. I wasn't sure if it was going to live up to it's claim. I was happy to find out that if used as directed, that it did indeed last up to eight hours and kept my face from getting horribly shiny. (side note: it smells HORRIBLE)

I have used a few different matte gels in the past that have worked the same as this sample. They worked just as well and at a much lower price point. This product did what the label claimed it would and did not break me out.

Absolutely works
Sampled

I used this product only twice so far, but it really is amazing. It goes on smoothly and doesn't have a greasy or sticky feel. Once it has settled on the skin, you'll notice that the shine really goes down, but it still leaves something of a glow. I noticed that it keeps the shine down for more than the eight hours it advertises!

Pretty good

Works fairly well as a primer I suppose. I don't have a real oil problem so probably don't have a lot of use for this.

Incredible staying power
Sampled

This primer was amazing on my skin and not heavy under my product. I have blemish prone skin so I loved that this helped to keep my skin from becoming irritated.
