To keep your skin photo-finish ready all day, finish off the look with Youngblood’s Hi-Definition Hydrating Mineral Perfecting Powder.

Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

Before applying makeup, use the spongy applicator to gently press the formula onto your eyelids, the sides of your nose, your chin, and any other oil-prone spots.

Doesn't Do Much
Purchased

I didn't really get the mattifying finish that was advertised. I DID happen to get annoying little flecks of this product sitting on the tip of my skin. More annoying than it was worth.

Ok - not amazing
Purchased

This was subpar for me. When I put the product on the sponge and applied it to my skin, often times little balls from the formula would form instead of it applying nicely and evenly onto my skin. Didn't work for me personally

Good, but wouldn't buy again
Sampled

I like the idea of this product because I'm constantly blotting my face during the day. However, the way it settles over my foundation didn't look good. The two formulas didn't compliment each other and the mattifier felt a little heavier than I would have liked. Spreading mattifier on my face feels more cumbersome than just blotting it.

Awesomely un-shiny
Purchased

Very effective! Goes on smoothly, and visibly reduced shine throughout the work day. A part of my daily makeup routine.

Didn't find a need for it

This is one I had trouble fitting into my beauty routine. I'm always looking to simplify things, not add extra steps in the morning. Maybe good for those who really struggle with oil but not for the average person.

Not for my skin

I have oily skin so I was pleased to get this primer, but it didn't do anything to control the shine on my face at all. I used it both above and below foundation, also mid-day and never saw a noticeable difference.

Good Product

I received a sample of the anti-shine mattifier. It's in a cute compact and does the job your looking for. It comes with a little sponge so you don't have to use your fingers to apply.

primer?

I received this in my very first birchbox and was really excited since it was a deluxe sample but I was a little let down since it tended to make me oily and shiny by the end of the day even though it was a mattifying product....go figure!
