REVIEW: BECCA Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector

Hey Ladies,
Having combination skin can sometimes be such a pain and I have tried countless primers and foundations designed for oily skin and nothing seemed to work. I had heard some good reviews on the BECCA primers so I thought i'd give one a go.
BECCA Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector
'A Silicone-free primer that perfects the face, minimising pores and mattifying even the most oily skin for up to eight hours. Use alone, before or after foundation to control excess oil, along with being sweat-and humidity - resistant, this product is free of silicone, oil, alcohol and fragrance.'

If you have very oily skin this truly is the primer for you; it is amazing. When I use this my makeup stays oil free and looking pretty perfect all day for a good 12 hours paired with the right foundation. I have never found a primer that works as well as this.

I could only describe it's application akin to putting glue on your face, it is more a paste than a liquid and so it works really well at smoothing out the pores. If you have combination skin like I do I find it is best to apply to the areas that get oily rather than the whole face as it could make your foundation look a bit naff where you don't need it.

At £28 it is on the expensive side but when you compare it to something like Benefit Porefessional ml for ml it is a lot less expensive; the Benefit primer is £24.50 for 22mls so £1.11 per ml whereas the BECCA is £28 for 40mls so 70p per ml making it 59p per ml cheaper. As an accountant by day I am telling you it is cheap therefore a totally justifiable purchase. It is available exclusively from Space NK (Link).
