This is great for people who have oily skin like I do. I am very oily around my T-zone area, especially my nose! Cornstarch is a great alternative to other makeup powders to suck up the oils and help mattify your face! For me, this lasts a lot longer on my skin than my other powders and has better oil control as well. Some makeup companies put cornstarch in their mattifying powders. It is safe to use on your face and has not broken me out.
