Murad Matte Effect Blotting Perfector




 As the weather starts to slowly (very slowly) heat up here in the UK it can begin to affect how your make up sits on your skin. If you have a combination to oily skin you may find that your shiny areas are in need of a little extra something however applying layer upon layer of a mattifying powder isn’t really helping your skin to achieve a fresh but matte finish.


I have been testing out the latest mattifying blotting perfector from MURAD. It’s a mirrored compact, which contains a cushioned, saturated sponge and slim applicator pad.

The sponge inside is infused with marshmallow powder, which along with soft focus mattifying spheres absorbs the excess oil in the skin, but doesn’t deplete your skin of moisture.
 It also contains Pomegranate extract to act as an antioxidant and achieve radiance along with French green clay to absorb oil and detoxify.

The applicator pad is antimicrobial and has a cooling effect on the skin. This pad is stored neatly away in a separate compartment to avoid contamination of the product.

What did we think?
 Initially I wasn’t convinced by this product. A wet product on an oily skin, which potentially may already have a layer of powder on it, seemed like an odd combination. But it totally works.

Firstly you can apply this as a base primer or you can use on top of your foundation. Either way you need to dab it on. Don’t swipe across the skin, as you will disturb the makeup underneath.
 When you pat it onto the skin it feels cooling and fresh but it quickly evaporates and dries almost instantly. It leaves behind a matte finish to the skin that looks totally fresh and natural. It doesn’t leave a dry residue and didn’t cause the skin to tighten once dry.
 The cooling finish would be great to use during the summer months or at times when your skin feels a little flushed.

A really nice alternative to powder this summer and can be touched up as many times as you desire with no fear of a cakey finish.

  The Murad blotting perfector is £32 and available here.

  2. I decided to get one of these after your positive review and I have to say i'm really impressed. Its fantastic, I'm looking forward to a shine free summer. It's light on the skin and feels cooling and refreshing when applied. Thanks for the recommendation.
