Hope your week has been good to you just as mine. I know I’m super late about this post but it’s better late than never,right? Remember the post about my top 5 primers for oily skin? The BECCA Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector was one of them and since I haven’t actually reviewed it, I thought to do so now. I’ve been using it for a little over a year and just kept putting off this review for no reason at all but today na today…loool. According to BECCA, it is a targeted mattifying primer that controls oil for up to 12 hours. Now, let’s find out what I think.
Packaging : It comes in a dark brown tube with silver screw cap.
Formula : The BECCA Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector has a gel-like feel to touch and dries off completely matte. It contains Water, Magnessium Aluminium Silicate, Propylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Butylene Glycol, Enantia Chlorantha Bark Extract, Oleanolic Acid. It’s free of Alcohol, Fragrance,Silicon and Oil.
How I Use : I squeeze a pea-sized amount (as seen above) on my fingertips and warm between my fingers till it’s clear. Then, I apply to my face focusing on my T-zone area.
Pros : The

- Acts a liquid blotting paper which leaves the skin feeling fresh and matte for up to 12 hours.

Overall, I like the BECCA Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector a LOT! I was skeptical about buying it at first because of the hype. Truth be told, some products don’t live up to half of the hype but when my No 7 makeup base finished and I found out it’s been discontinued (still wonder why boots made that decision though), I decided to give it a try. I was impressed by the way it made my skin feel so nice yet matte at the same time, all day. It’s a little pricey if you’re on a budget but whenever you have the extra cash to splurge, it’s definitely worth a go cos it WORKS! You can find the BECCA primer for about 20,000naira (price may vary from store to store) at any beauty store around. Do you use the BECCA Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector? How do you like it?
