TSABD Edit: Mattifying Skincare Products of Interest

Mattifying

(I normally post my TSABD Edits on Tuesdays but this one took longer than I anticipated plus I’m going to be in Iceland next week so I wanted to get this posted before I leave)

Though it doesn’t feel like it right now (I’m in NYC), warmer temps will be here soon which means the quest for matte skin shall soon rise again.
