Hey guys, after yesterday’s post about how I control my oily skin, the question I received the most is: ‘where do I get these products?’ Great question, because I did fail to give that information (and the prices). So here are all the details. Hope this helps!
1. MAC Cosmetics Oil Control Lotion: available at maccosmetics.com, MAC stores, (some) Macy’s, Nordstrom etc. Retails for $15 (for 30 ml/1 fl oz) or $30 for 50 ml. I have the smaller size.
3. Skindinavia No More Shine Makeup Finish Spray (oily skin formula): available at skindinavia.com. Skindinavia makes the finishing sprays for Urban Decay. So the packaging is different, but it’s the exact same product! You can buy Urban Decay at urbandecay.com, Sephora, Ulta (online and in stores) etc. Retails for $29 for 4 fl oz. Skindinavia also sells a smaller bottle (2 oz. for $19) and a bigger one (8 oz. for $39).
4. MAC Cosmetics Pressed Blot Powder in Dark: available at maccosmetics.com, MAC stores, (some) Macy’s, Nordstrom etc. Retails for $23, it comes in 5 shades. My shade (NC45) is ‘Dark’.
5. Boscia Peppermint Blotting Linens: available at bosciaskincare.com, Sephora, Ulta (online and in stores) etc. Retails for $10 (for 100 sheets).
If you can only get one or two products, I definitely recommend MAC’s Oil Control Lotion and the No More Shine Makeup Finish Spray. You can even use the setting spray as a primer (before your foundation), to make your foundation last longer!
