Find in Store-

Instantly mattify, refresh and set with this translucent, liquid blotting formula in an on-the-go cushion compact. Soft focus mattifying spheres absorb oil, minimize pores and perfect skin. Set makeup, touch up throughout the day, or use on bare skin for a natural, matte look. Cooling, antimicrobial applicator won't disturb makeup. Works on all skin tones.

In a Murad sponsored study*:
  • 96% of women agree excess oil is absorbed immediately
  • After 8 hours: Keeps skin mattified
  • Keeps the appearance of pores minimized

*Results when product is applied after makeup
Lightly press the applicator puff into the cushion. Pat the puff onto skin, concentrating on oily areas. For touch-ups, reapply as desired. Do not over-saturate the applicator puff with product. The best application is achieved with a light amount of product on the applicator puff. Product is buildable if more mattification is desired. Flip the cushion to extend usage. Applicator puff can be washed with mild soap and warm water.

Comments about Murad MattEffect Blotting Perfector:

I went to Ulta wanting something to help with my oily skin and the saleswoman recommended this for touch ups. I tried it for the first time today and it was definitely different to apply. I wasn't sure if I was using enough, but sure enough it seeped into my skin immediately. It does take some getting used to! Application was a bit challenging, but I loved the effects. I didn't have much oil on my skin thanks to the mattifier, but it definitely soaked up the oil that I did have! Highly recommend.

      love the concept of a "wet" oil blotter. Would prefer in a smaller compact so easy to fit in purse.

        Comments about Murad MattEffect Blotting Perfector:

        I love this blotter! I actually didn't realize how much this helped until I used it, then didn't re-up for about a month. For that month, my face was more oily than ever. I had to powder every 2 hours. My skin is overly oily and this is the only product that has ever helped. I apply a thin layer on top of my primer and under my foundation. A little after midday, I use a beauty blender to apply a thin layer on the oily parts and then I put a layer of powder on over that. Depending on how much you apply, it will take off some of your makeup. I like to use the pad that they provide in the morning, but the beauty blender over the makeup works so much better to conserve the life of the pad. This removes my excess oil, and keeps me from having to apply powder pretty much the rest of the day. This stuff is amazing! I carry this everywhere I go.

            Comments about Murad MattEffect Blotting Perfector:

            i am not overly oily but use this as a primer before applying makeup. i like the smooth, matte finish and it's very lightweight. You have to be careful not to apply too much or it doesn't work at all.

                Comments about Murad MattEffect Blotting Perfector:

                I bought this at a friend's suggestion to use on my nose which gets oily throughout the day. I went in with this after I finished all my makeup and it completely rubbed all the concealer off my nose. I didn't press hard and dabbed lightly. Kept me pretty matte but looked awful.

                  I've been using product for a little over 2 weeks. It does take a little getting used to. I've only used pressed or loose powders to remove excess oil from my face. This is actually a liquid soaked in a sponge. U don't need much. You blott on with the applicator provide and it really does do the job but not as long as I would've wanted.

                    Used this for the first time today. I applied it to my t-zone before applying foundation and concealer. My chin is usually an oil slick within 2 hours of makeup application. Today I put makeup on at 7:30 and didn't touch up with this product until noon. One pat of the product on my chin and the shine was gone. As long as I don't breakout, i'll buy this again.
