AutoMatte is a powderless, imperceptible mattifier and skin smoother. Available in one universal shade, it can be used as a primer, with or without makeup, to prevent shine and oil build up and also as a touch-up throughout the day. Non-drying and non-caking, AutoMatte’s weightless and breathable veil provides a soft-focus effect that leaves skin looking naturally smooth. The formula’s clarifying & brightening properties soothe the complexion and assist in collagen synthesis and protection. Contains vitamin C & E and is paraben free.
As a Base: Prime skin with Sunset Light Primer/Serum first, then load up the provided black sponge by rubbing it in a circular motion onto the AutoMatte’ surface. Gently polish onto skin where shine tends to surface throughout the day. The same technique applies for finger application; rub your finger tip in a circular motion to pick up product then smooth onto complexion. You can also use a flat dense brush like a concealer or foundation brush; rub the AutoMatte’ surface back and forth, then smooth onto the desired area. With makeup, follow with Complexion Fix Corrector/Concealer/Highlighter and or Sunset Skin Foundation to veil imperfections and desired areas. Skip powder.
As a Touch-Up: Over bare skin, just rub or pat on using a sponge/brush/finger over the desired area to take away excess shine. Over makeup, it is best not to rub the skin’ surface as makeup could come off. When using the provided sponge, a press and roll motion is ideal to take the shine away and lock into place existing makeup. Veiling one small area at a time, reload every 2-3 press-roll motions for optimized results. When touching up with a clean finger, gently rub to warm up the mattifier’ surface then pat onto skin wherever shine needs neutralizing. When using a brush, load up the bristles by rubbing back and forth the AutoMatte’ surface, then pat gently onto the shiny skin area.

Still haven’t received it!
So far I'm liking this new product from veil cosmetic.
One of those things that you don't know you need until you get it. Colourless and Its take away the shine off while smoothing, blurring the appearance of the skin. A bit of magic. Really suitable for TV works and shoots. Doesn't build up on skin. And I love using sponge rather than brush. Just personal preference.
