Elf HD Mattifying balm

The last matte item to fit the theme of the week: Elf HD Mattifying balm.

To be fair, this product fits the name better than the previous 3 product lines I showed you. It absorbs excess oil to give the skin a close- to-matte finish and somewhat disguises the appearance of pores.

The formula is said to be infused with vitamin E, jojoba, almond and grape to help nourish the skin. The balm texture is smooth, goes on clear and blends in easily on my T-zone.

There is a mirror under the lid and a thin sponge in the bottom compartment, meant for touchup on the go.

The middle pan does not stay up on its own so I could not show you the sponge underneath. It is thin and smells quite heavily of rubber, I am not that eager to use it.

Instruction: dab product onto oily areas of the skin to remove shine. Use under or over makeup as often as needed.

I am not sure how HD the finish is, but I like the disappearance of oil when I use the balm to touch up. It does take more work/ tool than blotting paper, but the silky feeling afterward is very pleasant.

I will try to air out the sponge to see if the smell dissipates or find a different one to put in the compact for touchups. Until then, I’ll enjoy using the balm with a powder brush.

Ingredients: Isononyl Isononanoate, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Silica, Ceresin, Ozokerite, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Tocopheryl Acetate (Ve), Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Prunus Amygladus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil.

The compact has 0.32oz/ 9g of product, $6.

About Sparkled Beauty

I love makeup with passion. No, I was not growing up holding eyeshadow in my hand, and I went through many years not having much makup on my face until one day it hit me. It was probably just the right time for me to open up my heart and let it in, and I could never stop.
