            Loved it! No shiny nose for this gal anymore. Bought this because my makeup disappeared around my nose,forehead and chin after only a couple hours of makeup. This totally helped and my makeup stayed put.

                  This product is complete ineffective. It doesn't do anything for oil (which I have plenty of, unfortunately) and past that, I just messes up your makeup if accidentally slip and swipe at all.

                        My eye lids are oily and makes my eye shadow crease after an hour. Which is really frustrating. Would this help with the oil control on my lids?

                          Hi gorgeous! The POREfessional: license to blot is an instant oil-blotting stick that mattifies shine for up to 6 hours after application. We recommend blending the POREfessional primer all over the face to minimize the appearance of pores and then targeting oily spots with license to blot! I also recommend our Stay Don't Stray, it is an eyelid primer that make concealers AND eye-shadows STAY PUT.
