Excess oil, especially in the T-zone, clogs pores and melts makeup. To stay matte, dab a little anti-shine product on your nose, forehead and chin before applying makeup or whenever your face looks shiny.


Fancl T Zone Clear Essence ($110/ 8g)


This special formula with HC Catechin helps tighten pores and prevent blackheads. Keeps you looking shine-free all day.


Kose Matte Balance T-Zone Serum ($170/ 20ml)


Provides good shine control, even in humid weather. Pores don't look noticeably smaller, but it balances oil secretion for 7-8 hours.


Clinique T-zone Shine Control ($110/ 15ml)


It's light and immediately mattifies the skin, but avoid it if you have sensitive skin as it can sting a little.


Smashbox Anti-Shine lotion ($225/ 30ml)


This powder-gel has a thick texture but does the trick. It stamps out oil immediately and makes your face look clean and fresh for hours.


Benefit Dr Feel Good ($270/ 24g)


The balm mattifies well and reduces the appearance of pores. Can be used on bare skin or over makeup for a quick touch up.
