Review: Mary Kay Oil Mattifier

Since my skin is so oily, I'm always looking for products that'll help me keep the shine away. I think it is so frustrating to put on makeup only to have your face look like its been greased with cooking oil a few hours later. Thankfully, I am able to keep my skin matte longer with this Mary Kay Oil Mattifier.

This product cost $15 dollars and comes with .6 fl oz. of product. The amount of product in the tube is really great, and I usually can go the whole year without running out; And I use it daily!


The actual product is white, but it dries completely clear when rubbed in. I actually have it rubbed in next to the swatch, so you can see that it is completely clear.


When I use this Oil Mattifier, I squeeze out a dime size amount onto my hand and rub it into my t-zone. Then afterward I continue on with primer, and the then the rest of my face makeup .

Normally when I leave my face bare my skin is oily in about 3 hours, and I can extend that time to 5-6 hours when I use this product along with powder! This makes such a huge difference! This product can also be applied over makeup. So,when I start to get, oily I blot my face with blotting sheets, and then use more of this over my makeup. 

If you have oily skin, and are looking for a way to lengthen the amount of time you skin stays matte, I would highly recommend this! It has definitely decreased the amount of times I have to blot my face during the day!

Do yo have oily skin? If so, what do you do to keep it matte?

  3. Actually I have very dry skin and I use Dove bar soap to moisturize. My problem is that when I cook, my hair and my face become oily. Thanks for the suggestion. May be I will give this a try anyway. Now I have to find a Mary Kay Lady.

  5. Oh this is good, I hate looking oily as the day wear on. I was just having a discussion with my mom about these products because she has some lipsticks from this brand while I have never really tried them out. This looks promising.
