Murad’s MattEffect Blotting Perfector (£32) is a first-of-its-kind, skincare cushion compact that instantly mattifies skin while also refreshing and setting makeup for touch ups on-the-go. The pore-perfecting compact has a unique, translucent liquid-to-powder formula which absorbs oil, minimises pores and dries instantly to perfect the skin for a beautifully matte, soft finish.

Key Ingredients:

  • Marshmallow Powder selectively absorbs sebum, but not water, preventing skin dehydration; also provides a unique softness to the skin.
  • Soft Focus Mattifying Spheres absorb oil, while also minimising pores and imperfections.
  • Pomegranate Extract infuses the skin with powerful antioxidants for a healthy glow.
  • French Green Clay Extract absorbs oil and detoxi es the skin, while providing skin-essential minerals

It’s that time of year again when the weather gets warmer and my face gets shinier! I usually use powder in the morning, especially on my chin and t-zone, but I rarely remember to top it up plus I prefer to leave my face as bare as possible during the day to let my skin breathe. This blotting stuff is an absolute God send – it literally dries up any excess oil without feeling like there is anything on your face! It’s ideal for using alone or for a touch up on top of your makeup and as if by magic the shine is gone. Unlike most oil control products which tend to be powders or paper, it is a lightweight liquid formula contained in a sponge cushion which you apply with a small applicator puff. The handy little compact is ideal for carrying in your bag and I will certainly be taking this away on holiday with me to keep any excess oil at bay!
