My Favourite Mattifying Powders For Hot Summer Days

Hello everyone,

So today I have decided to share with you three mattifying/blotting powders that I have hit pan on. I have combination skin and my T-zone gets the most oily. But in the summer months, my entire face gets oily from the heat and humidity! Therefore, a good mattifying powder is essential to avoid looking like a greasy mess!

Tweedle D’s Top 3 Mattifying Powders


1 – MAC Blot Powder
2- Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder
3- Urban Decay De-Slick Mattifying Powder

MAC Blotting Powder

First time I used this product I was so pleased with the results. This powder instantly mattifies my face and sets my foundation. It also has very good staying power. For people who get oily skin and shiny faces, I highly recommend this product! It’s great for quick touch ups during the day when your face produces more oils. MAC’s packaging never disappoints – it is slim and sleek, which easily slots into any make up bag. This powder comes in 5 shades.

Urban Decay De-slick Mattifying Powder

I remember asking my mum to get this product for me from the states as we don’t have a Sephora in Hong Kong. I was searching for a mattifying powder and was reading product reviews on I was deciding between The Makeup Forever HD Powder and this Urban Decay de-slick powder and ended up getting this one! Again – it is a well loved product of mine. The powder is transparent and it is very good at absorbing oils. The only down side to it is that the packaging is quite bulky and heavy – not very good for travelling. But other than that – a great product!

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder

I am sure tons of you have already heard about this product being raved about on youtube by beauty gurus! And I think this is definitely worth the hype! For one, it is super inexpensive and is available in all drug stores! There are many differernt shades avalible and I got the one in Transparent. This product does exactly what it says! It mattifyes your face. The packaging is obviously not as sleek as the MAC blotting powder but for the price you pay its great! Cheap and Cheerful! The packaging is a good size and can easily be tucked into a handbag/ makeup bag!

Lots of Love,
