This primer has a slightly sticky or tacky texture before you apply it to your face. However, it still goes on very easily and smoothly. After you apply, wait until the primer has dried (which it does extremely quickly) before applying your foundation. After it has dried, the texture is like applying foundation to a naked face.

This isn't really a lotion like primer. It goes on pretty sticky and dries with a really tight, matte finish. It would work best with a liquid or something hydrating that's going to go on top. It's more of a gel that sets really fast.

I personally get half a pea size amount, rub it between a couple fingers to warm up the product and then smooth it across the T-zone and anywhere I get oily (which is everywhere). I find it spreads really easily that way. They I just pat around to get any missed spots. No troubles for me. I think some people just need to learn how to work with the product.

I've tried applying it with a sponge, not a good idea. I feel like using a brush is what works best. I usually apply it on top of my hand , in between my index finger and thumb. i get my brush and rub it in the brush to smoothen out the thickness of the product and then apply to my face.

answer 4
Definitely try to only use it on places of your face that are the oiliest. It needs that little extra oil that is already on your face to help it smooth out, or moisturize directly before applying this. Also I have found that rubbing it between my fingers to warm it up helps to blend it much easier and since doing that, it doesn't stick to just one part of my face, but spreads out evenly.

answer 5
yes it dries quickly, I only apply it to oily areas, forehead, nose, chin. I use just small amount at a time and quickly do a small spot, only trying to rub the area maybe twice to spread the product and then let it dry, if you rub it to much it will ball up and not adhere to the skin. It doesn't adhere well to skin that has creamier mosturizer on it, tends to slide off as you rub, you need an oil free very light moisturizer under it to get the oil control benefits. I use a different primer on the rest of my face

I put about a pea size amount of the back of my hand, then just dip my finger into it to get a little bit, then rub that into my forehead, then nose, chin, etc. so that I really rub it into my skin. I just focus on one part of my face at a time until I've covered the entire thing. It pretty much immediately starts to feel very drying to my skin and I just let it sit on my skin until it doesn't feel sticky or tacky and then apply my foundation.

answer 9
Thank you both! I have been messing around with mine for a couple of days and I figured out that I wasn't using enough. It dried too quickly because I was trying to use a pea size amount for my entire face. So that is something to keep in mind.

Another thing I have found is that it works great ON TOP of makeup. I was really upset the first couple of days because this product was making me shiny on my nose. So one day i took it to work with me and took a pea size amount and PATTED it onto my nose. OMG. It worked so well. Its a great primer but an even better touch up due to the fact that you aren't adding any powder that eventually leads to a cake face.

Another thing i found was that it made even my oily oily OILY skin very dry.
it was only by mistake that I found out this next "trick"
I went tanning and immediately after that, I was planning on going to go to a bbq. my oily skin was greasy after the tanning session due to the lotion and i applied this on top of the tanning lotion (After the tan session) and it made me look matte without the dry dry cracking feeling. So maybe for those girls who have oily skin, apply a slightly heavier lotion to the areas of the face that are cracking up after the application of this primer, and it might help you out a ton!

All in all, give this primer a week or two. Mess around with it and once you figure out the right way for it to work with your skin, its great! I just DO NOT recommend this for dry skin gals.

Yes. This product is so mattifying (it works, almost too well), that it literally traps all oil under the skin and tightens the pores to prevent any oil from coming to the surface. For a person with acne (I have inflammatory acne), I'm not sure if a mattifying primer is a good idea. By the third time I used it, I did break out quite a bit. I think it created a weird barrier that caused an imbalance in my skin.

go to a sephora store and get them to give you a sample in a little container, the container if they fill it will give you enough to use for a week or more depending on where you are looking to apply it. Mine lasted for over 2 weeks, as I have the same kind of skin and don't want to waist money on products I can't use. It has not caused me to break out and has worked better than anything else I've tried but it is tricky to apply, you have to use oil free moisturizer under it and apply just small amount at a time and only rub it couple times as it sets quickly and will ball up if you rub it too much. I only use it on my oily areas not all ober my face

I used to have serious acne, and I still have occasional break-outs but not due to using this primer. In my opinion, if you have acne prone skin, I would not use a matte-fying primer like this one. The cause of pimples and excessive oil is due to your skin drying out and that is exactly what this product does. It dries your skin. I'd steer clear of all matte-fying products...

Ever-Matte Poresless Primer v. Benefit PORefessional
Has anyone tried this against Benefit POREfessional as far as controlling oil? I am looking for a smoothing primer that controls oily skin and will help me stay matte as long as possible. I tried a sample of POREfessional for a few days and liked it (3.5 stars out of 5) and I am wondering if I should give this a try instead of buying the full sized POREfessional.

When I went to Sephora to ask for samples, I asked for one of this and the Porefessional. I liked the Porefessional in terms of actually blurring my pores - they did look minimized, but I 100% recommend this Becca primer over it. The Becca primer does a FABULOUS job at controlling oil - I honestly don't think that it can get better than this. Porefessionals did not control my oil nearly as well. Also, in my opinion, the Becca primer gives a much better finish to the skin than the Porefessional. If you want to talk cost, the full size of the Porefessionals doesn't even have an ounce of product, while the Becca Ever Matte primer has 1.35. More bang for your buck, and of a better working product, I would say.

I am a product consultant at a sephora and I say give this a try first! I have used both the porefessional as well as this and this is WAY better at controlling oil and it doesn't tend to break up my foundation where as the porefessional makes my makeup breakup in weird ways towards the 6hr mark in my oily areas. This is a little less slippery in texture so it goes on differently but I think it is by far a much better product.

I have crazy oily skin and have tried both POREprofessional and Ever-Matte as well as Bare Minerals Oil Control Primer. While POREprofessional is fantastic for smoothing out you skin for me it still left my skin oily. Bare Minerals then overly dried out my skin and did not leave me matte all day. Becca Ever-Matte is my new favorite. It leaves my skin matte and cleans up my pores. I highly recommend it. If you have a Sephora near you I recommend getting a sample as it is a little tricky to apply since it is fast absorbing. Hope that helps!

It is very fast drying, and at first, it will feel a bit tacky. But if you let it sit for a little bit before you apply anything, it will settle into the skin. What I like to do is first apply the primer, and while I wait for it to dry and settle in, I work on my eye makeup a little bit, and then return to doing my foundation/concealing/the whole shabang afterwards, and it works just fine.

I have experienced this, as well. Unless your entire face is oily, you only need a small amount anyways (using an excess amount could overly dry out your skin). Try warming up the bottle in your hands before dispensing and make sure your hands are warm when you use it and it should go on smoothly.

If you are using a moisturizer with sun screen as I do, I apply the primer after the moisturizer has dries...Works great.

I wouldn't use it for that. I accidentally used it as such and it kind of burned/stung, though I do have sensitive skin.

I definitely use as an eye lid primer, but do use just a little to avoid caking

No, I would say definitely not. It's dry and patchy, doesn't spread smoothly. Use the Smashbox eye lid primer instead.

It could be. But I would definitely moisturize your eyelids before applying. It can be very drying which isn't good for your eye shadows!

This primer is just for the face, however we have a number of different eye lid primers that are ideal for shadows and to keep shine at bay on the lids.

I use this on my entire face, including my eyelids & my eyeliner & shadow don't budge, just pat it on carefully.

Question
How would you compare this to the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer?
I love the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer. It works very well with my skin. I also love trying new products. If anyone has tried both of these primers, how would you compare and contrast them to one another?

I have used both primers and find the Hourglass Veil primer superior to the Becca primer. HG applies easier, dries to a nice finish and foundation applies flawlessly over it. The Becca primer seemed to dry too quickly, making it hard to apply without it clumping. It stayed sticky on my skin and made it difficult to get a nice finish from my foundation. I would definitely suggest the Veil primer to the Becca.

This product is much better at lengthening the wear of your make-up. The Hourglass Mineral Veil primer can leave skin looking oily after a few hours into the day, while the Becca primer hardly wears off after a 12-14 hour day.

Not sure to be honest. I just know this is the very worst drying primer I EVER used. So not good.

Hourglass is for normal/combination/dry skin while the Becca is for oily skin. Its meant to mattify.

Hourglass is far less harsh. I have sensitive skin and I've tried both, this one felt like I was pouring acid on my face. Other than that, I don't know, but Hourglass is lovely.

I went back to Hourglass...so my opinion...stick with Hourglass. The formulation is NOTHING like Hourglass. Very thick and harsh. Tugged at my skin when I applied it. Not satisfied at all.
