Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't Work for Me I really wanted to like this, I did. I've been trying to find a product that will keep the oil on my face at bay, cause I have REALLY oily skin. I first got it because the reviews were good, and the ingredients weren't bad. I've used over half of it, and I still don't really like it. It does make you matte and minimize the look of your pores, but the effect only lasts a couple hours on me, tops. After that I'm back to being a greasy mess. The one okay thing is that it didn't break me out, which I'm always cautious of. Also, the packaging isn't the best. I've attached photos so you can see, but before you chalk it up to being too rough with it, I'm very careful with my stuff, and most of the time it was sitting on top of my desk. I've taken it on the go less than 5 times, but it still broke. It could just be the one I got but just a heads up. I do think it could work for someone else, but it just didn't for me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible! I have combination skin with a very oily t-zone. This product has a very lightweight formula and keeps me matte for at least 8 hours. It seems very greasy when your feel it, but patting it into the skin makes you instantly matte. Love this product!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Threw it away I was trying to go cheap and find an alternative to another Mattifying balm I like. This product was a softer consistency and did nothing to make my skin Matte. It just added a slimey layer to my face. I threw it away. Don't buy if you have used a higher end product, you get what you pay for. High end products and even Ulta also take returns if your u satisfied so it's less of a risk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The absolute best thing! It was amazing! For someone who has oily skin, this held my make-up in place as well as keep the oiliness to a minimum. Sadly my dogs ate mine but I will be ordering again. It's worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Once I changed the way I applied it I FELL in love I bought this about 2 months ago, and at firstI was just NOT digging it. After I put my serums, and moisterizer on, let them soak in I took the included pad and wiped, dabbed it on, it went on very heavy and crumbly. It DID keep my T zone shine free all day though. A friend suggested that I get the sponge nice and wet, squeeze out excess and then swipe and apply. OH the wonderful change that has made. Now it glides on easily, without being to heavy, or cakey crumbly. I am basically using it as a primer, and it keeps my foundation budge free all day without getting shiny. So, maybe this will help others to try application with a damp sponge. When it runs out, I will be ordering again. As far as using it as a primer, I only use in my T zone, which is the only place I ever used or needed primer, and I like it for this purpose better than the other ELF primers I have tried. (like just about every one) You can't beat the price either. I have fair, sensitive combination skin. This just really works for me. Now that I am applying it differently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this a while ago and initially when I used this I found that it changed the way my foundation sat on my skin and make a weird texture, but after playing with this a little more i found that when i put a normal primer over this that i dont have any texture issues. This is is one of the few products I have used that actually makes a difference in how oily my skin gets throughout the day. My make up lasts much longer when I use this underneath my make up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from does mattify! I just tried this today - and I will point out that you have to figure out the best way to apply it that suits your makeup. If you smear it on post-makeup, you will mess up your makeup (or it will transfer). I have yet to try this as a primer BEFORE my foundation, but I can say that swiping the product with my fingers and then dabbing it over my makeup on my oily spots - DOES WORK. You have to be very light or the makeup will transfer - HOWEVER - it DOES MATTIFY. Which is what I want! I didn't get crumbles like some people mentioned in their ELF reviews for it, but mine is very creamy.I bought mine at Target in-store, and I will say that I'm wondering if there are two formulas for this product. Old vs. new. I found two areas in my Target store that had this in stock - one was with all the main ELF products, and then another was at the end of an aisle with some newer products on display. I grabbed one off the end of the aisle (newer?), but when I saw it on the regular shelf area with all the elf powders etc..., I noticed that the two boxes for the same product were different. Just be aware that there may be a newer formula to this. I ended up taking the "newer" box and I find it extremely creamy and emollient. It's very greasy, but since it has silica, it melts away to a powdery finish. Figuring out how this product can best work for you is the way to go - but it's worth buying because it actually DOES mattify when applied. I am going to keep this in my makeup arsenal, for sure (unless it gives me skin irritation; none so far yet).
