Smashbox Anti-Shine

I know that beauty advice is rarely given on Les Deux, but this product has been my absolute greatest find this summer, and a real life-saver.  Smashbox's Anti-Shine was created specifically for people with naturally oily skin (which has always been a problem for me), but with a summer as hot as this one, it's often hard to find a person who hasn't been prone to sweating at some point during their day.  Which is where Smashbox comes in.  Through some kind of amazing formula, the product comes out as a smooth gel, easily applicable to the face.  As soon as it's applied, it becomes very sticky as it adheres to your skin.  Less than twenty seconds later it has been completely transformed into a dry, powdery finish, creating a matte base for makeup application.  Being a waitress, I'm often running around and stressed at work, where we aren't allowed to keep the air below 76 degrees, but I don't want the people I'm serving to think I look disgusting and unwashed.  At $27, it isn't exactly cheap, but a little goes a long way, and trust me when I say that it's made a vast difference in my skin's appearance.  I know it's late in the summer, but there haven't been any signs that it will cool down any time soon, so I just thought I'd share.

Hi Katie! Thanks for your nice comment on my blog. I'm so glad I could introduce you to Clothes, Cameras and Coffee! Her stuff is great.

I'm going to have to pick up this anti-shine serum! Summers in NYC are the worst. I've been using rice paper blotters like a madwoman!
