Coming Soon: e.l.f. Studio HD Mattifying Balm

Thanks to reader Sydni (@sslitovkin on Instagram) for the heads-up about this one! If you missed e.l.f.'s post on social media yesterday, there's an exciting new product on the way:

Coming Soon: e.l.f. Studio HD Mattifying Balm

"Matte in a flash! Make fine lines and oil slicks a thing of the past with the NEW Studio HD Mattifying Balm. Coming soon to"

I'm pretty excited about this since I have yet to try the Mally Face Defender OR the CoverGirl dupe. I don't know exactly when this is coming out or what the retail price will be but as soon as I find out, you'll be the first to know.

Thanks again, Sydni, for the tip about this one!


  1. Looking forward to trying this, hope that Target will stock it. My skin is an oil slick lately, so this would be great to try. At the moment I am blotting with the Elf blotting tissues, work great. Just wish they were a bit thicker, but for $1, hey who can complain!

  2. Hmm this looks interesting. I have mad oily skin and nights out involve me constantly applying powder, looking forward to hearing the result.


  3. I picked up the Mally Face Defender during Ulta's recent Beauty Steals sale and planned on picking up the CG "dupe" to do a comparison. Now, if I could just talk ELF into sending me one of these to do a comparison!

  4. Seems like a dupe of the Dr. Feelgood by Benefit as well. Not sure if this type of mattifier will work for me as I got a sample in my Birchbox last yr of a similar product by Youngblood cosmetics (I think that was the name) and it didn't do much to keep my oiliness at bay.
