I have no idea what I did before foundation primer came about. Once I found out that they stopped my foundation from sliding around all day after my skin’s oil production kicked up, I haven’t looked back since. I don’t even think about applying foundation without primer first now. But no matter what primer I’ve used, I haven’t been able to find one that allows me to completely eliminate those mid-afternoon touch ups with a blotting paper or two—until now. BECCA’s new Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector totally acts like liquid blotting paper! This stuff is like magic in a tube.
This multi-tasker is an all-in-one solution to oily skin, enlarged pores, and makeup that just doesn’t want to stay on. Sweat-proof and humidity-resistant, Ever Matte is a silicone and oil-free balm that you can apply both before foundation, and after (yes, after!) to smooth the skin’s appearance. This hides the emphasis of pores and fine lines to ensure a perfect foundation application.
This may come as a shock—but I swear this is the BEST primer I have used to date. And I’ve used A LOT of primers in my time! The wear is incredible, I am not shiny at all after over seven hours. The texture is a little bit thicker than other primers, but it’s so odd because it doesn’t feel heavy on my skin at all. It actually feels very light, and it has a slight cooling sensation right after application. This targets my oiliest areas and balances them, so I have a smooth, matte finish that doesn’t look cakey or dry. I don’t detect any fragrance, so if you have a sensitive sniffer, no worries.
For illustrative purposes, I applied foundation on the back of my hand both with and without primer. See how the surface of my skin without the primer looks dry with the foundation and you can see about a billion fine lines? Then look underneath that—the skin is a smooth canvas with foundation on top of it. Crazy!
It only took one use for me to discover that this product lives up to the hype! I highly recommend this for those with enlarged pores and oily skin types.
