Matte Matters, Part I: Designer Blotting Papers

Since I discovered the new and luxuriously large Perfecting Powdered Sheets from NARS, I've noticed that more and more designer brands are now making blotting papers. Until now, oil-absorbing sheets like the ones from Papier Poudre were available mainly as a budget buy, but now these products are getting an upgrade. So I've put together a three-part series to introduce the new market for designer blotting papers.

Dior Blotting Papers ($21) help absorb any excess oil on your face. All 150 sheets are folded into a beautiful silver envelope with a mirror inside. Simply blot around your T-Zone for a magnificent matte look.

Shiseido Pureness Oil-Control Blotting Papers ($15.50) are powder-coated sheets that help keep your skin dry. They come in a small and flexible plastic pouch that contains 100 sheets.

ModelCo Matte Facial Blotting Paper ($8) is one large continuous roll of blotting paper. You simply tear off a little or a lot depending on how oily you are at that moment. Just press the paper gently over your skin without wiping for a clean, fresh feeling.
