Hello Readers, today I am here with Essence Clear & Matte Makeup Oil-Free Review. Makeup world has been through a revolutionary change. Many years back it was a pancake and lots of powder that women vouched for, then it happened to be a foundation or mousse. What rules the market a present are BB or CC creams or tinted lotions.

What Essence Clear and Matt Oil Free Makeup claims
My experience with Essence Clear and Matt Oil Free Makeup
Essence Clear and Matt Oil Free Makeup comes packed in a sturdy and cute tube with a nozzle under the cap. The narrow opening is very efficient in controlling the amount of product oozing out. Like most Essence products Essence Clear & Matte Makeup Oil-Free too is very reasonably priced but it is available online for Indians. The tube is extremely lightweight to be carried around. In fact the size is like a travel size bottle of any product. The consistency of this makeup is extremely light and easily applicable. There are a few more shades available of this particular product.
The shade porcelain is meant for fair skinned ladies with pinkish undertones. Being in India I purchased this online and guessed my shade among many others so I landed up with a wrong shade as I have yellow undertones. The fragrance it has is not very pleasant and luckily it is not strong too. On a clean oil free well exfoliated face, I apply moisturizer as I have dry skin and proceed only after it gets totally absorbed. Using my fingers I dot my face with Essence makeup liquid and blend it gently using fingertips. Blending can be smoothly done with fingers while a sponge with eat it up actually.
Finally Essence Clear & Matte Makeup Oil-Free gives me the thing I want the most in my everyday makeup. The makeup looks very real and not cakey at all. There is a slight whitish cast because it is a wrong shade but that does not actually show up in pictures. The face looks radiant but matte immediately after wearing this and the coverage it gives is more or less like a BB cream. It does not conceal any flaws just that the under eyes look better and the complexion looks even. The finish it gives is actually matte but not something powdery so oily beauties can easily do without a moisturizer underneath. The matte effect fades away after 2 hours and can be prolonged only with a loose powder or compact. This is highly recommended to tinted lotion and BB cream lovers for such a natural finish it leaves behind.
Overall Essence Clear and Matt Oil Free Makeup gives a natural, radiant oil free look to the face with minimum coverage. This is highly recommended to girls who are not looking for heavy duty skin coverage and want something that does not even look like makeup in person.
