NYX Matte Blotting Papers

This post is going to be short and sweet but I simply wanted to put it out there, somewhere online so that it can be found.  I have oily/ combination skin so in the summer and my more active days I do need to blot my face to avoid a rather unattractive shine. 

I bought the NYX Matte Blotting Papers to try out whilst I was over in the States but it's taken me a while getting around to actually trying them.  Finally I had a situation where I was desperate to blot my face so pulled out these bad boys.  Now previously, I would have told you that I thought blotting paper would be blotting paper but I didn't really feel that this sheets actually soaked up the oil very well at all.  Disgusting or not, I didn't really feel that the sheet even looked like it had done very much either.  Looking in the mirror it was obvious that they really hadn't done an awful lot like the previous papers I've had.

The bottom line is that these might be okay with someone with very minimal oils but generally if you're going to rely on these to touch up your make up then you have no chance, you might as well just take a piece of toilet paper and pat your face and just powder over it.  Give these ones a miss I'd say!
