    I have used products like this one in the past that have worked very well, so I was excited to give this a try. I used this for a few days and every day my face was an oily mess in less than 2 hours.

    Didn't Work for Me

    Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only HD Mattifying Balm:

    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

    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!!!

    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.

    Once I changed the way I applied it I FELL in love

    By Justwanderlusty

    Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only HD Mattifying Balm:

    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.

    I bought this a while ago ...

    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.

      I have pretty oily skin and I wasn't expecting a whole bunch, maybe just keep the oil at bay for a little bit longer than usual, but I don't think this stuff did much of anything. Perhaps my skin is too oily for the purpose of the product. I didn't even touch the applicator and just apply with my fingers.

        Excellent

        By MeggieNYC

        Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only HD Mattifying Balm:

        Before I got this no shine balm, I had a different one from Stella. I thought that one was good, but too clumpy. I tried this one, and I'm shocked at the difference! This one is lightweight, easy to apply, and works instantly. I applied it over my foundation and it didn't take off the foundation, which has been a big issue for me in the past. I highly recommend this.
