Murad MattEffect Blotting Perfector

I understand the struggle of keeping makeup look fresh and fabulous all day long. Having a combination to dry skin doesn’t mean I don’t feel the pain of you oily skin beauties. In winters my skin may not need blotting papers but summers have different story. If I don’t blot my skin, my T-zone gets shiny in just couple of hours of applying makeup and my pores appear larger. But No more blotting sheets now as I have discovered Murad MattEffect Blotting Perfector* | £32 which instantly mattifies the skin by absorbing excess oil while keeping skin hydrated.

Murad MattEffect Blotting Perfector

Murad skincare has developed this revolutionary product which is  first-of-its-kind, skincare cushion compact that instantly mattifies skin while also refreshing and setting makeup for touch ups on-the-go. This skincare cushion compact has a translucent liquid-to-powder blotting formula that contains Marshmallow Powder, which selectively absorbs oil from the skin, but not water, preventing skin dehydration – who knew marshmallow could be so clever?

The pore-perfecting compact absorbs oil, minimises pores and dries instantly to perfect the skin for a beautifully matte, soft finish.
