      I use this product before my foundation and my tzone stays matte all day! I haven't found a product that works as well as this!

      This product was recommended to me by the store clerk. It just doesn't last on my oily skin. There is a less expensive brand that I buy at Ulta that I prefer over this.

      Comments about Smashbox Photo Matte Anti Shine:

      I have a moderately oily T-zone, but I'm one who sweats. Most times, especially during the spring and summer, I don't bother wearing foundation because it comes right off after a few hours. I read all the reviews and decided to give this a shot. I'm glad I did. I put this on a clean face over moisturizer on my forehead, nose, and chin every day at 8 am. It is still going strong at 5:00 needing only a small touch up or two. A little of this goes a long way! I will be buying this again.

      This product works very well for oily skin!!! I use the gel all over my face before my foundation and I use a dime size on my t zone after. And my foundation stay on all day and it minimize my pores as well. Definitely will recommend this product

      Comments about Smashbox Photo Matte Anti Shine:

      I use this product on a clean face and for touch-ups throughout the day over my makeup to take away the shine on my t-zone.
      It is very soft and smooth, it feels really nice!
      It is pricey but worth it because you only need a little bit at a time so the tube lasts a lot longer than you would think.

      Comments about Smashbox Photo Matte Anti Shine:

      It does go on powder like and blends well. I do notice a bit of shine w/in hours but I have super oily skin too. I am not sending it back because it's the best I've found out there w/out feeling heavy. It feels light and my skin does stay somewhat shine free. However, I have noticed small breakouts right where I'm applying it which makes me think it is clogging pores thus causing me to break out a little.

          This stuff is amazing! My skin was getting seriously oily from all the summer heat and humidity so I bought this product to try for a July 4th BBQ and it worked like a charm. A friend commented on how my skin looked like I wasn't even sweating! Worth the money, wish it came in a bigger tube

          Comments about Smashbox Photo Matte Anti Shine:

          I have very oily skin. I have tried this product alone and under a mineral based make up with great mattifying results. Make up goes on smooth and it also helps even skin tone when worn alone. I have only used it for a couple of weeks, but so far I would probably buy it again. I do wish it were in a slightly larger tube as it seems pretty small for the price. I'm not sure if it lasts a full 8 hours on my skin, but I feel like it does last a pretty long time compared to other brands I have tried. I would definitely recommend trying this product.

              I use this product under my makeup and occasionally on top if needed. It works well to fit shine during hot summer months.
