Product Review – Brand: Mattify! Cosmetics

Mattify! Long Lasting Eye Shadow
Mattify! Original Powder for Combination Skin
I’m personally a huge fan of vegan and organic makeup products, so when I came across Mattify! Cosmetics (www.mattifycosmetics.com) I knew I had to try it out! The package came late in the afternoon, so I had to wait until the next morning to try it out – but the wait was definitely worth it.
Mattify! Cosmetics’ most well-known product would probably have to be their powder. For those of us with oily skin, this product is basically magic! Before you put on your foundation, use this product and it will decrease the oil on your face and even the redness from acne (and also prevent breakouts). They recommend applying it after foundation as well, but when I tried that I just had clumps of white powder on my face – but it might just be my incredibly weird skin.
They also have a fantastic selection of eye shadow, and sent us two colours – Earth Angel and Midnight Train. I am a fan of warm bronze eye shadows, so I decided to try out Earth Angel first. I don’t have too much experience with loose powder eye shadows so it was a bit of a struggle at first, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t absolutely love it! The bronze colour is so perfect that I actually ended up experimenting with it a bit – I put a little on my cheekbones as a bronzer, and it had the perfect amount of shimmer!
The awesome thing about these eye shadows is that they can be used as eyeliner, lip gloss, AND nail polish! I found this idea quite bizarre at first – and I still do! I don’t know how I feel about having the same product on 3 different parts of my body. It’s definitely something I have yet to try out though!
If you’re looking for something cheap and a product that actually works, Mattify! Cosmetics is definitely the one! Their website also contains various tips for healthy skin, whether your skin is dry or oily. Definitely check them out – you won’t be disappointed!
