Murad Matte Effect Blotting Perfector For Oily Skin Days

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.


Heads up shiny friends this new Murad Matte Effect Blotting Perfector ($39) is a sheer, liquid blotting formula that acts to mattify skin and absorb excess oil.

But wait there’s more!

While reducing shiny this acts to minimize the appearance of pores and perfect skin. Hmm! The quick dry formula comes housed in a cushion compact that has a dual compartment which holds a sponge for touch ups and application on the go.

I’m dry at the moment but believe you me I get a bit of shine in the Summer months and I used to adore Urban Decay’s Deslick in a Tube formula to reduce my shiny, oily areas. This sounds like an excellent replacement for it.

Wonder if it works?

Murad Matte Effect Blotting Perfector is available now at Sephora.com.

P.S. Happy Tuesday! I hope you’re having a good one and saying warm wherever you are! And most importantly hope you’re loving the new Spring beauty news! Anything in particular you’re hauling and eager to try?

Do share!

I have one compliant, I wish they let us get over Christmas releases before slamming us with Spring ones! My wallet needs time to recover! Am I right?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I spy a new release from It Cosmetics coming to QVC on Saturday. I have seen pictures of a new solid/balm serum foundation, and there may be a new moisturizer also… hard to tell from the sneak peek video released by Jamie on YouTube. I am dying to see the details and am always antsy to try anything new from It Cosmetics! I am anxiously awaiting your review!! Press sample??
