One of the greatest beauty inventions ever....blotting papers! They are very thin, tissue-like and may or may not have some loose powder on them. I have been using this essential beauty tool for years. Just a quick swipe and my makeup is well-blended and any shine is gone. I blot a few times a day to ensure my face has a smooth, matte finish. My two favorites are: Shiseido 'Pureness' Oil-Control Blotting Paper (powder coated, $18 for 100 sheets, available in most higher-end department stores) and Face Secrets Professional Oil Absorbing Blotting Papers (non-coated, $3.49 for 150 sheets, order online at www.sallybeauty.com). Do you use blotting papers? If so, which ones?
