Perfect your complexion with Paula's Choice Shine Stopper Instant Matte Finish with Microsponge Technology, a primer dedicated to eliminating excess oil and promoting longer lasting makeup.
Utilising innovative Microsponge® Technology, the primer works immediately and over time to absorb and trap excess oil on the skin, controlling shine and leaving your complexion with a silky, powder-effect finish. Completely invisible on the skin, the formula keeps skin looking matt for at least six hours, so makeup stays put for longer, pores appear to disappear and minor skin imperfections are camouflaged. - K.N.

I tend to avoid makeup because I have an oily skin which shines through and makes taking the time to apply makeup a waste of time in the end, however I decided to try this product as have like PC skincare products in the past. At first I was using it wrong; under makeup and saw no real difference but on the night of my graduation ball I tried it on top of a liquid foundation. Was completely amazed when I checked my face in the mirror later on and there was no shine! I looked fresh as a daisy despite being really hot. Tried it next day over a mineral powder foundation and same amazing results. Really pleasantly surprised with this and will repurchase!

Amazing product. Controls the shine on my face more than anything else I have tried. It also doesn’t have the horrible greasy feel like so many silicone based products I have tried recently. It dries to a nice finish and for me lasts about 6 hours before I need to reapply, this is twice as long as anything else I have tried.

im on my second tube...this does stop shine for at least 8 hours but whenever i apply foundation on top of it, it looses its effect; even with a matt foundation! i donno what's in the foundation that breaks the shine stopper ingredient. but still the only product that could keep by shiny Tzone at bay.

One of the best products to stop a greasy/shiny forehead! Only a small amount is required, so lasts for months and months.
Only slight downside is that this product only works for 5-6 hours, not all day.
