Go beyond extending makeup wear to address the root cause of why your makeup moves. BECCA Evermatte Poreless Primer specifically targets oil-prone areas and acts as liquid blotting paper to leave your skin fresh and matte all day. Use alone, before, or after foundation to control excess oil, while minimizing the appearance of pores. Feel free to use throughout the day to touch up areas of concern. This product eliminates excess oil for long-lasting matte skin. The formula is sweat- and humidity-resistant and free of silicone, oil, alcohol, and fragrance.


Primer can be worn alone or under foundation. To apply, warm a pea-sized amount in hands and pat onto specific areas of concern like the T-zone. Allow product to dry before following with makeup application. For touch-ups throughout the day, warm primer in hands and pat over makeup to target oily areas.

Stylist Tip: use as an eye shadow base for oily eyelids.

      Ever Matte YES...Poreless? NO.

      By Mimi0126

      from NY

      Comments about BECCA Evermatte Poreless Primer:

      For reference...I'm 44yrs old and I have large pores on my nose and partial cheeks. I have naturally oily skin but not excessively oily. This product is thick... it's not easy to squeeze it out of the tube...it goes on nicely...has a little bit of moisture to it but dries quickly. Just by feeling it on my skin I could tell it had mattifying and oil controlling ingredients...my skin felt very "fresh"...similar to when I just finish washing my skin...that kind is freshness. BUT not matter how much I put on- it was horrible at filling in or blurring my pores and the more I put on I cld tell it was going to pill up. It truly did a Very Poor job at filling in pores...I srsly havent tried a worse primer than this one for *pores. BUT I think this wld be Great for someone with oily skin and not as large pores...However, if you "need" the flawless blurred pore skin...Keep-On- Searching.

        I enjoy the product overall, however I do have to reapply during the day even without using foundation. Even with using setting powder with my initial application I'm still having issues with all day matte coverage.

        Not Overly Impressed

        By annika

        from oklahoma

        Comments about BECCA Evermatte Poreless Primer:

        I feel like I have tried every "mattifying" and "oil controlling" primer in existence and really thought I'd found THE ONE with this primer. I had super high expectations that it would work miracles and help with my extremely oily skin, my skin is typically oily after only 1-2 hours of doing my makeup. It's literally looks like I have rubbed butter all over my face haha. Unfortunately this primer didn't really help too much. Maybe for people with less oily skin it would do something but for me it just made no difference. A few other cons I found to this product were that 1)when it dries down, if you haven't blended it well, it leaves white makers that do not cover up very easily, even with full coverage foundation 2)it does not minimize pores in any respect 3)it is very drying and makes your skin feel EXTREMELY tight and uncomfortable, I found it hard to even smile with it on. 4)it makes my makeup cake and separate resulting in not the most appealing look, definitely not the look I'm going for lol.
        While this is a decent primer if you use it sparingly and just as a primer, not looking for any of the benefits it claims to have I'm sure you would love this and it would be a good fit for you. But unfortunately for me, it just didn't work it too great.

            My biggest problem is that my makeup comes off when I blot my oily skin. I put this primer on at about 6am along with the rest of my make up and although I've still blotted a couple times my makeup is still there at noon!! I am very impressed. This is what I've been searching for. We will see how it lasts and see if it breaks me out but so far so good!

              Comments about BECCA Evermatte Poreless Primer:

              I've tried several different primers and have liked many but, none truly kept my oily t-zone at bay like this primer does. Remember to pat it on, not rub. I do still get oily at the very end of the day but, nowhere near as soon as I did with other primers.

              • Q:

                I received a sample of this, read the directions, applied it, and I felt like I had a clay mask on that had dried and was ready to be washed off. With that being said I LOVED the way my forehead looked. It was completely matte. I have so much oil in my t-zone. I like a dewy look but oil control is an issue. My question is, can I use a primer over this primer? Say, First Light? I don't plan to use this on my entire face, but just in my t-zone. I love my First Light primer and I don't want to have to wash my face and start over again on a work day because the two might not play well together. Thank you! I L-O-V-E my BECCA products!!!

                  You can apply our Evermatte Poreless Primer on top of moisturizer or on top of foundation. Squeeze a pea sized amount, rub it in between your fingertips until it becomes clear, and tap on the areas where it tends to get oily.

              • Q:

                I have used Becca products for many years and mostly enjoyed what I have tried and continue to use. I have extremely oily skin. I am exhausted from trying everything from low-end primers to high-end primers with poor results while wasting a lot of money. Before I throw more money away I need to know will this product help control my oil all day? Also, ​I use several different foundations from water based to silicone. Will this work with all foundations? Please don't say yes just to try to sell me a product. I need an honest review.

                  Our Evermatte Poreless Priming Perfector is great to use for oil control. The application process is very important to make sure that your oils are kept at bay! Here is how you apply this product:

                  - squeeze a pea sized amount
                  - rub onto your finger tips until it becomes clear
                  - tap on areas where you tend to get oily
                  - wait for it to completely dry before applying foundation on top

                  Doing so will ensure that you are matte all day long. What's great about this primer is that you can also use it to touch up throughout the day and tap on top of your foundation without disrupting your foundation!

                  Hi Beauty!

                  If you are looking for a primer that can help keep the skin matte and poreless, then you can also try our new Velvet Blurring Primer! this helps eliminate oils, but has more of a liquid consistency to help not cause the blotchyness you are experiencing. Sometimes, due to the tacky nature of the formula, this can happen xo

Take a small pea sized amount, rub in between your fingertips, and pat on the areas where yout end to get oily. Wait for the product to dry down, then apply foundation to stay matte all day long! xo
