Ok so I have combination skin and have tried essentially everything to keep my face matte during the day. I finally bought this because it was like $8 and I didn't want to spend another $30 for urban decay. And by golly, I am so glad I did. It helped my makeup stay matte for several hours. Around 7 to be exact. I think it could have been longer but I took off my makeup to sleep. Way better than urban decay and cheaper. My only complaint was the way it sprayed on but maybe I got a semi defective nozzle. Either way, this is an amazing product. I attached pictures. No filter, 7 hours apart.
