I usually use NYX HD Finishing Powder to control my shine around the T zone throughout the day but they ran out and found this product, decided to try. It does help with oiliness for a small amount of time however the balm texture didn't go on as well on top of my makeup and make it look cakey since...see moreof the reviewer's review

I really liked this product. It was much easier to apply, and the results were so much better, than Ulta's brand of a similar matte balm primer. Elf's balm kept me oil free and preserved my foundation all day and into the night. I used it on my very oily T-zone with the enclosed sponge. If/when the ...see moreof the reviewer's review

As an e.l.f. item, it's on the "pricier" side. As a mattifying primer that actually works, well as they say, you get what you pay for. I live in Houston (very humid and muggy for a majority of the year), and I am of mostly Pacific Islander descent which means I have large pores and overactive sebace...see moreof the reviewer's review

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 yo...see moreof the reviewer's review

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!!!see moreof the reviewer's review
