If you have oily skin, chances are you looked into buying a mattifying primer. Well, look no further! Becca’s Ever-Matte primer is simply amazing. I struggle with oily skin, mainly in my T-zone, and I found that this primer helped to not only pro-long the wear of my foundation, but also leaving me oil-free for hours.

Becca’s Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector is said to be a “targeted oil-control primer that perfects and minimizes pores for mattified skin that lasts up to 12 hours.”

I wouldn’t say this primer left my skin oil-free for 12 hours, however, I did notice that my face would stay oil-free for about 6 hours without becoming shiny. After 6 hours, my nose and forehead started to get just a tad bit shiny but it wasn’t that much of a problem. In combination with my Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation, my face stays matte for hours. I found that I am able to go about 8 hours before having to use an oil-sheet to blot away excess oil from my face.

The application of this primer is a bit tricky. The consistency of it feels like glue so it is a bit sticky, however, the directions state to shake before use. I have heard that others are finding this primer difficult to work with but I found that what works for me allows this primer to work its wonders. Before I apply this primer to my face I squeeze just a very small amount (about a pea-sized drop) to the back of my hand and rub it around with my finger. I then pat NOT RUB the product to only the areas of my face that get oily, which is mainly my T-zone. Before I apply my foundation, I let this primer settle into my skin for about 5 to 10 minutes. It is very important to let it set into your skin or else your foundation will become flaky after application. I found that following these steps leaves my face looking flawless and oil-free.

I would recommend this primer to those that struggle with oily or combination skin. Those with dry skin should avoid this product.
