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 love this product. It feels great on the skin, and I love the slight smell. Will continue to order this one!~5
I use this quite often but not a daily basis. It feels light and you do get a bit of the flawless look after applying foundation. I do have to say there is another product that I also use as a primer that I love. I switch off between this one and the other maker just to see if I can notice a big difference. So far, I can't tell the finishing look but for feel and texture wise, I'm leaning towards the other item.4
This mattifying gel is AMAZING. I have an incredibly oily face. By lunch time my entire face gets oily no matter what....until I purchased this. I put my makeup on at 8am and by the time I take it off at 10pm my face is still not oily. It goes on easily and absorbs quickly (and doesn't interfere with makeup application - I use a beauty blender and a CC cream). My only warning is to use it sparingly - if you use too much it will make your moisturizer ball up on your face. Otherwise I highly recommend it for anyone with oily skin :)5
Always had a problem with shine 2-3 hours into the day. Have tried different mattifiers, mattifying moisturizers, t-zone correctors, etc. Always reaching for the blotting papers mid-day. Decided to purchase OC8 based on product info and feedback. It is amazing. Goes on smooth, absorbs quickly, and no odor. Only need a thin layer and no shine all day except maybe slightly on the nose at the end of day, but nowhere near like it was before use of product. Will not use anything else.5
I have very oily skin and have tried many mattifying products. This is definitely the best one I've tried. It doesn't last all day, but I think it's unrealistic to expect a product to last that long. However, it does last most of the day. It was a good price and I will buy it again after I run out.4
I honestly never knew a product like this even existed. I battle with oily/shiny/greasy skin everyday in the summer heat and end up blotting the excess oil off several times throughout the day. Sometimes I look in the mirror and I think, "I could literally fry an egg on this face...ugh". So, I researched different products to find one that will help manage my issue. This is like a miracle in a tube. I am amazed and how well it works and it feels great on my skin. I absolutely love this and will be repurchasing when I run out. The great thing is you don't even need much of it...a little goes a long way so I imagine this tube will last me quite a while. I can't believe I haven't discovered this sooner. Love, love, love it!5
I have found the single most "can't live without" product I've ever encountered. I tried this stuff after much research and deliberation and wasn't sure what to expect but had high hopes due to the price. WORTH. EVERY. PENNY.
I have oily skin and have never found a product that kept me matte for more than about an hour. Until OC8! I can go the entire day and still have only the very beginnings of a shine (after about 8 or 9 hours). My secret formula is OC8 paired with Benefit Big Easy and a little concealer. It's like a miracle! In fact, this stuff is so good, I fell asleep the other day (intending a 10 minute nap)… ONE HOUR later I awoke all freaked out and looked in the mirror… not even any 'nap shine'. Uuuuhhhh-mazing.
I have oily skin and have tried many different primers, lotions to give me the matte look that actually lasts all day. This is it! My skin stay matte all day and it really does even out my skin tone! Best product ever!5
My daughter's wedding was in August. The long, HOT dog days of summer. With no time for touch-ups, it was imperative that my make up stay put. This primer was exactly what I needed. I looked as good at the end of the day as I had at the beginning.
We invest so much time and effort and money into finding the best make up for our skin - make sure you give your make up the best possible start with a really really great primer.
my skin gets oily in the t-zone. by 3 o'clock, i look wet. This keeps me looking normal, not dry or cakey. smell and texture are good too.4
