Lancome used to have my all time favorite mattifier gel– it got discontinued. Wha! It is okay, they recently came out with this new product that is almost as good. I have oily skin and therefore my face is very prone to shine mid-day. Who wants that? Especially out on the town at night? Not me. Countless touch ups get frustrating too. This product is oil-free and well worth its $42.00 price tag. Smooth it on before you apply your make up and your face will be shine free the whole day. Even if you do not have oily skin, use it to keep your make up in tact for a special occasion. I recommend this product with 5 stars!
