        So I have combination skin & I have gone through so many primers & finally wanted to try something different. I noticed an employee in the makeup department at Ulta had great makeup so I complimented her and asked what she uses. She said she mixed primers ( which I never thought to do) and then recommended this product. I've gotten compliments on my makeup and the matte finish it leaves, which is so nice ! So I definitely recommended this product :)

            I am on my second tube of Matte Rescue. I really like this stuff for the first 6 hours, I have to touch up my face after that. After about 6 hours my face gets pretty oily. I am a teacher so I do move around throughout the day, but nothing too crazy. I am on my second tube because this is the best primer I have found as far as making oily skin matte goes, I just wish that it lasted longer than 6 hours.

                I had heard such great things about this product and I finally caved in and bought some. It did not help control my shine at all! My makeup was still moving around and by the end of the day, my face was so oily and my makeup was ruined. If you have oily skin and want something to make your makeup last, Becca's matte primer is AMAZING

                  I love using this primer under my favorite foundations! Before using this product, I would have to avoid dewy foundations because of my combination skin. Now, I can wear it with anything without worrying about my oily t-zone or it drying out the rest of my face.
