product review for oily skin

I have the most oily skin. Within an hour applying my makeup I get greasy.

Exhibit A.

Not so cute. Plus the oil makes me more prone to break out, extra not cute!

So, I was on a quest to end my shiny mirror like complexion.

I read a ton of reviews about Benefit Porefessional. 

I love Benefit, so I grabbed this guy at Ulta to give it a try.

Benefit Porefessional

My thoughts:

~It is silky smooth.
~It definitely helps with the visibility of my (crater like) pores.
~It DOES'NT make me break out, which is a small miracle.
~It is a perfect primer for my BareMinerals.
~It helps absorb the oils on my skin.


Where has this product been my whole life?
I love this stuff and it is now part of my regular daily beauty routine.

The next product I just happened to grab in the checkout line. Usually these impulse buys are a let down but the sales lady had great things to say about it and Ulta has a great return policy so I decided to give it a go. Boy I'm glad I did!

Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray

My thoughts:

~Its a light spray with no fragrance, which is fine with me.
~It set my makeup amazingly.
~It almost gives a light dewy look to my skin, which I love.
~It is amazing on my complexion, it sops up the oil and leaves my skin beautiful and matte ALL day.


I l-o-v-e this stuff.
Another product I will use everyday and continue to buy forever!


Using both these products I have noticed my skin is breaking out less!

Anyone else have a favorite product for us shiny complected people?

Oh my goodness I need to try these. My skin gets so oily and drives me crazy, I never go anywhere without powder and tissue to get rid of the shine. My skin tends to break out very easily too, which is hard because the oil makes my makeup not last as long and then uncovers all the broken out areas. I always get jealous of the girls that say they have dry skin, would love to have that problem instead! :)
