Additional Information

HD Mattifying Balm is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 130.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well as a primer! So, this is advertised as a touch-up product and as a primer. I’ve found that it’s a really good primer, and an okay touch up product. I’ve delegated it as a primer and will use matte powders and blotting sheets to touch up. The product itself is easy to apply and really smooths out the texture of my face. It has a similar effect to the Smashbox photofinish primer but isn’t as prone to feeling thick or pilling, which is something I really dislike about the Smashbox one. Under eyes it works wonders, really smooths the texture out and makes my concealer look fresh all day. As a touch-up product, it’s more finicky. You really have to use it before your skin is too shiny or before you really need it, and you have to use a tiny bit at a time and work it in very slowly. Honestly? Use a cheap matte powder or a blotting paper for the same effect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best alternative to powder for mature skin I have a lot of fine lines. Using powder always accentuates them but this does not. Perfect alternative to touch-ups, especially in the summer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Broke me out? I'm not actually sure this is the culprit, and I will try it again to make sure. If I find otherwise, I will adjust my review. However, I used this twice and strangely broke out. Once on my nose in two places, once on my cheek. I don't usually get breakouts, so I figured something was up, and this is what I narrowed it down to. That being said, here's my overall impression: I do think the concept is cool. It doesn't really seem to mattify a whole lot, however. It's convenient that the sponge applicator is stored in the bottom compartment, and I appreciate the mirror. There's no weird scent or anything bad upon application. But yeah, that whole breaking out thing has me gun-shy. Like I said, I'll give it another go cause mama didn't raise no quitter. But at this point it looks like a dud for me. And for the record, NOTHING breaks me out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well! I have oily skin, at least on my forehead. This balm helps so much with keeping my skin from getting too shiny. I apply it before my foundation. I can really tell a difference if I don’t take the time to put it on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not sure how mattifying it is... Not sure how mattifying it truly is because I didn't notice much of a difference. It is how very soft and almost appears to blur a bit. I wore it plain so have no experience with it over make up. Overall it's alright and my pores were a tad less noticeable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful This dries my face and makes makeup look caked on.

Hi, do we apply the balm on the face before the foundation or after that?

Asked by: fabiola13
I put it on after I had a full face of makeup with the sponge, and carry it on my purse in case I get oily throughout the day. It worked great for me even though my t zones is very oily.

What do most people use to apply this product?

Asked by: maddiibumzz1
I like it best with clean fingers..wonderful at concealing pores. If using b4 foundation, only use a water based foundation.

I'm afraid I might be using this product wrong. I put it under my makeu, it came in small chunks of balm, I used the pad in sort of a swiping motion. Then I tried it another day over my makeup and it took off my facial makeup. My skin is very oily.

Asked by: Lexis
The sponge that comes with this is terrible. I think it is the cause of many people's problems with this product. I almost gave up on the balm before I realized the cheap, crumbly sponge was the issue. I wash my hands and use my middle finger to apply a small amount with a light dabbing motion. I've used it both before my makeup and for touching up any shine late in the day.
