My skin is so ridiculously oily it's not even funny! I'm continuously searching for the best skin mattifier to put under my foundation. In the meantime, I have oil blotting papers, primers, mattifiers, but haven't found a truly good one yet.

MAC's Matte (in the black tube) may be the closest to what I like so you have an idea, but I want to try something else. It has the consistency of a smooth cream that's on the thick side.

Any ideas please!

The mattifier I swear by is made by Mary Kay - its called oil mattifier. It says it will keep you matte for 8 hours but I usually get about 6 hours - I have a very oily t-zone and just use it on that. I havent found anything better. it can even be reapplied over makeup to touch up and it doesnt make a mess because you dont rub it into the skin, kinda just smooth it on and it dries very matte. See if you can get a sample - not sure if Mary kay does that.

You can check out Cargo's mattifier from their bluray collection. It has the texture of a primer, but it also mattifies.

I use smashbox photo finish, not sure if you've tried it or not but it's a HG for a lot of people!

put some fresh lemon on your face before, this gets rid of spots as well as oil. This should dry it off a bit. Wipe it off with tissue. The body shop has good blotting tissue btw.

I like Benefit Dr. Feelgood. It doesn't make my skin ridiculously matte, but just enough, plus it doesn't dry out my skin. The only con is that I know some people hate the smell and have had not so great reactions to it. However, it worked out great for me, so I guess it depends on how sensitive your skin is.

I just got samples at Sephora for 2 others that look good:

- Cosmedicine Medi-Matte Oil Ctrl Lotion
- Murad Oil Ctrl Mattifier

But, someone on this board recently recommended Milk of Magnesia, which I tried right away & it's working TREMENDOUSLY WELL & it's cheap!

I second the Dr Feelgood suggestion. It works absolute wonders for me and I never go out without it. Plus, the smell has grown on me, i quite like it -fresh and nice
