Leave it to Dr. Murad to bring innovation and science to something as simple as blotting. While you think that a simple blotting paper will do the job, most of the time, you’re just smearing your oil around and going through two or three sheets. And after that, sometimes you’re still greasy. What’s the solution? Washing your face — but that’s not always possible. When you just can’t start fresh, Murad’s new cushion compact is what you need.
The Murad MattEffect Blotting Perfector ($39) offers up the convenience of blotting papers with the convenience of a cushion compact. Instead of powdering over your oil and getting cakier with every layer, the MattEffect Blotting Perfector is a fluid that blots excess oil, minimizes pores, and refreshes skin in one easy step. Plus, you can use it under or over makeup, so it’s perfect for on-the-go touch-ups. Just pat the included puff into the cushion to get just the right amount of product and gently pat it on your oily areas. The slight pink hue also softly brightens, so you’ll look radiant, not greasy. Formulated with marshmallow powder, green clay, and pomegranate, it’s a good-for-skin combo that’ll nourish and treat while you blot away excess shine.
Available at Sephora.
