Ever-matte Priming Perfector
A must have for oily skin
After trying many, many different primers to try and stop my make up slipping off during the day, due to my oily skin, I have finally found something that actually works in this product. It really does stop shine for several hours - in my case around 5/6 hours- before I would need to blot my nose, which is the shiniest area for me.
You do need to warm this up on the back of your hand before applying it, to take it from a white gel to a clear gel, and then use a patting or dabbing motion to apply it rather than wiping it across your face. I don't put it everywhere, just on my oily t zone and it works perfectly with powder foundation over the top of it. I do this every day. Allow it to dry before applying foundation too. One tube has lasted me nearly a year.
Absolutely essential if you need your make up to last the working day without feeling like there's none left on you by 5pm :)

I swear by this BECCA matte primer......an unequivocal must have for oily skin gals
Currently own and use this primer! its an all year round primer for a really oily acne-prone skin such as I have..I love it so much I have a backup for fear of running out...purchased from SpaceNK.....I utterly recommend this product for its unique oil control, blendability, it doesn't break me out in acne, it completely eliminates pores for a flawless look, doesnt make my foundation look cakey.....and the best part is it works with all my foundation types (Liquid, powder, gel, cream), its lasts a good 10-12hrs (I would know, I have put it to the test)......from 18hrs you might need to dab your T-zone, but heck who wears makeup that long anyway.
UTTERLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT...WORTH EVERY PENNY, IF YOUR SKIN IS OILY AND ACNE-PRONE!!!

Helps keep my skin matte
This product helps keep my skin matte for quite a few hours as I have very oily skin that shines almost 20mins after I have washed my face.
However, when you put it on your face it dries very quickly so it is hard to spread across your face. I also still have to put another primer on my face otherwise my makeup doesn't glide on as well with just this product by itself.
