You know about it, we all do. That minute where you go to washroom and take a look at yourself after being at a party for a few hours and wonder what the heck happened? Unfortunately, with all the makeup, partying, eating and greeting, most people tend to get oil build-up on their face by the time the clock strikes 12. That can make your face shine and your makeup look like it’s melting off your face.
I actually have dry/combination skin and when I am wearing my SPF moisturizer and evening makeup, I sometimes get oil build-up, too. It doesn’t just happen at parties, it happens everywhere, including work. Before I discovered Lise Watier’s new Mineral Compact Powder ($35), I would start my day off with matte, flawless skin and end the day with shiny skin.
This new product is one of the best mattifying powders I have ever tried but I must warn you, it’s extremely potent stuff. The first time I applied it, I applied the way I would any other powder. Big mistake! This powder is made to dry out oil so it will severely dry your skin if you put too much or apply where you don’t need it.
I now apply it with a blush brush and only to my T-zone, which is where most oil build-up is. Just a quick sweep and no matter what the circumstances, my skin stays shine-free all day…even through to the evening. It’s incredible.
It also has oil blotting sheets so if you keep this compact with you all day, you can dry up any excess oil that sneaks up on you. Given all the holiday parties and pictures that will be taken in the next few weeks, I suggest you arm yourself against a shiny complexion with this. You can find Lise Watier’s new Mineral Compact Powder at Pharamaprix / Shopper’s Drug Mart locations.
