this primer achieves the perfect balance of providing a non-oily, pore minimizing, mattifying finish, without sacrificing skin's hydration levels, or creating a "caked-on appearance

ok so i have extremely oily skin (like the type that is prone to acne, get oily on my entire face and get shiny after two hours). i have tried SO many primers all these years and i’m so glad i stumbled upon this primer. my skin usually breaks out when i try a new product but this did not make me break out. it goes on smooth and doesnt make my face feel tight or greasy. it has a skin like feel if you will. i paired this with the estee lauder double wear foundation and it worked wonders. i had my full face on for 8 HOURS and did not need to powder or blot for that time. that is INSANE FOR ME!!! it is definitely worth the price, and if youre like me and want a full coverage foundation, pair it with double wear, you will love the results!!!

Perfect for oily skin!

I really love this product and I don't usually wear primers because they clog my pores. But, this primer is very lightweight and refreshing. It leaves my skin so smooth and matte. I've been using the primer under the BB Skin Long Wear Weightless Foundation and I think it's the perfect duo. I have oily skin and it definitely helps control oil and makes my makeup stay in place all day. Also, my skin is sensitive and the primer didn't irritate my skin or cause addition breakouts.

Primer Perfection!

This primer is absolute perfection! I kindly received this product complimentary for review from Bobbi Brown. Primer Plus Mattifier is the perfect primer for all-day wear for most skin types! Especially for those with oily/combo skin, who desire extended wearbility with all day oil-control, without having to worry about any sort of drying effect. The packaging is simple, yet sleek. The tube is slim with a sturdy cap, perfect for travel. The product itself has a light, fresh scent. The primer definitely achieves what it is designed to do: extend wear of foundation, oil control, blur pores and help balance moisture levels. In terms of wearability, I have been more than pleased knowing I can go my entire work day without the need to reapply my foundation, blot my face, or apply powder. I have also spent an entire morning and afternoon in warm, humid weather without my face turning into an oil slick, or my foundation seperating. I do recommend pairing with Bobbi Brown Skin Long Wear Weightless Foundation SPF15 (which is a longwear, buildable to med coverage, matte foundation), however I have used with other brands and have achieved similar results. Upon first application, the consistency of the product did intimate me, being that it applies thicker and tackier than mattiying primers I have been used to. Once applied to my face over moisturizer (a slightly than larger pea-size is sufficient for entire face), the product blends in effortlessly, providing a smooth, breathable canvas for application of foundation. I feel that the primer does offer a noticeable blurring effect of pores and fine lines. I attribute that to the primer's ability to help maintain the skin's moisture levels. I do feel that my pores/fine lines are more noticeable when my face is either too oily or too dry. This primer achieves the perfect balance of providing a non-oily, pore minimizing, mattifying finish, without sacrificing skin's hydration levels, or creating a "caked-on appearance."

Worst I've Used- How Can It Be Flaky, Dry

I am so sad that I can't love this but it is HORRID on me. I thought for sure it would be amazing based on reviews and previous experience with BB products. It somehow manages to be simultaneously flaky and dry and crackly but also a greasy mess shortly after application. By the end of the day, I look like I'm molting!! It peels off the way glue did when you were little and spread it on your hand to peel. It's awful. Even tried just spot applying in the oiliest areas to avoid the peel - no go. Inspite of this, my foundation breaks up and looks like a gross oil slick about an hour after applying and it just gets worse as the day goes by. It's terrible. I have returned this product and the search for a primer my stupid combo skin can love continues...I have a few that are okay but nothing that comes anywhere near holy grail or even really like status. « less

Works great on combination-dry skin

This milky white creamy primer gave my combination skin a perfect matte surface without making the skin look dry or patchy. It also blurred the pores a bit. I found that my foundation AND BB cream worked great with this primer and blended seamlessly. Overall It worked great for me and the face makeup was looking healthy and put-together throughout the day. Here is how the face looks without touchup at the end of the day. (Bobbi Brown primer with a BB cream)

I need a new primer desperately. Every single day I wear makeup, by 3, it looks gross and you can see it wearing off. I’ve tried endless setting powders, primers, and foundations. I need a primer that will make it last all day for oily skin. I currently am using nivea men post shave balm and infallible 24 hr fresh wear and revlon colorstay along with Mario madescu setting spray. I only have money for drug-store products. #oilyskin #foundation #primer #help #ugh #drugstore

Best primer for oily skin and large pores? I have been using ELF Poreless Putty, it is great for blurring my pores but not for oily skin.

Bobbi Brown Hydrating/SPF primer! Super moisturizing without getting oily, still leaves a matte finish underneath makeup, spf protection, and the tube lasts long because a little goes a long way! 🙌🏾🕺🏾🌟

I just bought the Fenty beauty foundation and absolutely love everything but one thing has anyone else feel like no matter the amount of powder the foundation moves way to much? 🤔

Can someone help? I’ve tried all kinds of primer but after a few hours of wear, my foundation breaks up on my t-zone! I have very oily skin. Or if anyone is a nurse; what kind of foundation do you use that last all night?
