Australis' Matte Out Mattifying Face Base is a "lightweight face mattifier that can be applied underneath a primer, prior to foundation application. This product works best when applied on oil prone areas such as the T zone and chin to even skintone and absorb excess oil on the face. It contains silica powder, which acts as an oil absorbing material that is used to control the excess oil sebum and also generate a softer feel. Geranium oil which boosts and improves elasticity of the skin. This ingredient also acts as an astringent, antiseptic, tonic, antibiotic, and anti infectious agent. Rose hip oil, which prevents skin dehydration." The Matte Out Mattifying Face Base costs $13.95 AUD. Australis, a brand exclusive to Australia (if you couldn't tell by the name!), is cruelty free. This primer was made in Thailand.
I'm fairly pleased with Australis' Matte Out Mattifying Face Base. I haven't had the best experience with this brand before, but maybe this is a turning point. Packaging is quite functional, though not much to look at. This primer is so easy to apply, just swipe it on and let it sit for a bit. The light purple tint is barely there, but its just enough to perk up the complexion. Matte Out won't hide pores, but it will provide a smooth base to apply makeup over, all while keeping oil at bay, no matter how hot it is. I probably won't repurchase the Matte Out Mattifying Face Base, by I do recommend it if you're looking for a primer to help your makeup beat the Aussie heat.
