Are The Fenty Blotting Papers Worth The Hype?

They cost P1,000, after all.

I have a really oily T-zone—which isn't a surprise since I have a combination skin type and I live in humid Manila. I go through two to three blotting sheets every day just to avoid a shiny forehead and nose. So when Fenty (Yes, that Fenty) released the super chic-looking Invisimatte Blotting Paper, I wondered how they would fare against a regular pack of blotting sheets from the drugstore.

See the results below!

Product: Fenty Beauty Invisimatte Blotting Paper

Price: P1,000

Where To Buy: Sephora PH

Hands down, the packaging of this is b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l. It's something I would PROUDLY take out of my purse and use. It absorbs the shine well, too! However, the sheets are thin, flimsy, and hard to cut out of the tube—I ripped two by accident.

Product: Drugstore Blotting Sheets

Price: P124

Where To Buy: Watsons, All leading supermarkets nationwide

This has been my go-to since high school because I like the fruity scent and the fact that it never breaksthe material is so ~flexible~!

Verdict:

If you have the money to splurge or you like luxurious-looking beauty products, try the Fenty one! It's good for what it is because it absorbs all the sebum on your face and the packaging is TDF. It has a tiny mirror where you can low-key check if you're truly matte and ~fresh~. But if you, like us, are always on a budget, just go for the reliable drugstore version. ;)
