OC 8 Professional Mattifying Gel


RATING (out of 5 stars): 4 stars

COST: $30 for 1.6 ounces

THE SKINNY: I had never tried a mattifying gel before. OC 8 came in my September Glossybox and I am glad it did. 

This is the perfect in-it-for-the-long-haul product. It kept my skin shine free all day and was the perfect primer. My sample size is actually a full-size product and since only a dab is needed, it will last for a while. (This would be a great makeup setter if you are in a wedding.)

The gel goes on super smooth and does not contain any tint, so it works on all skin tones.

It is a close race which I like better -- OC 8 or a BB Cream -- both help you maintain a flawless look all day!

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep! Even better at a $30 value, this product alone was greater than the cost of my Glossybox this month.

CHECK IT OUT: Glossybox is my favorite subscription service, with high-end beauty products delivered monthly. You can buy OC 8 from online retailers such as Amazon and Beauty.com.
