There are a few beauty products that are often the focus of conversation at LF Towers – products that we’ve tried, tested and loved, that take our nails from drab to fab, that make our skin look bright and radiant, or make our hair look like we’ve just stepped out of the salon. And OSiS Dust It Mattifying Powder is very much one of these. Since the day I started at lookfantastic I have heard all kinds of things about this wondrous hair product – how it transforms your hair into a perfectly styled bed-head creation in one swift application, how there’s no need to spend ages in front of the mirror trying to backcomb your roots just to get a bit of volume, and how basically no night out is possible without a sprinkling of the magical stuff!
So, as I’m always on the hunt for the perfect styling product, I jumped at the chance to try out the Mattifying Powder for myself, and I have to say, I was impressed. There aren’t many hair products that can hold my hair in place (refer to previous blog posts about nightmare hair) but this one did, despite the February costal ‘breeze’ threatening to take its toll!
I started off by washing, drying and straightening my hair as usual. Then I simply shook some of the OSiS Dust It Mattifying Powder across my roots. Initially I was a bit taken aback by the white powder in my roots (especially as they need a bit of a touch up!) but I then I rubbed the powder in with my fingertips and it blended in easily and, voila! I had volumised, lifted and texturised hair! It really is that easy. You can ‘lift’ the roots as much as you like – high for an in-season ‘big hair’ afro or an up do, or low if you want something that’s more like a subtle bed head look.
The style lasted all night long, and the great thing is that if it does start to drop out it’s easy to re-style as the powder stays in your hair, unlike other styling products which can loose their effectiveness over time.
It’s not just long, straight hair that OSiS Dust It works for either, the men in the office are also fans, using it to add texture to shorter styles, and those with curly/wavy styles use it to enhance volume. So, OSiS Dust It Mattifying Powder gets a big thumbs up all round from the lookfantastic team!
