Most Helpful Critical Review Great for mattifying, doesn't play well with other makeup
I really really wanted to like this primer. I have super oily skin, and this primer does a very good job at keeping me matte, I barely saw any oil peeking through after 8 hours of wear. HOWEVER, this primer does not play well with other makeup products. You have do apply this primer in a specific way- squeeze some on to your fingers, rub them together for a couple of seconds, and press (do NOT rub, or it will ball up) it into your face, taking time to blend it evenly. This primer can make your foundation/concealer cling and go on patchy, especially if they are water-based/very thin in consistency (for example, the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer). My favorite way to wear this primer is with powder foundation, since it doesn't cling like liquids do. I think it would also work well by itself if you don't want to wear makeup but still want to control oil.

Literally the best primer ! Just follow the directions! On the pricey side but definitely worth it. I've already repurchased twice!
THE BEST!!! LOVE!

Primer; use before foundation. It was less oily and since I have super oily skin, I was glad that it did not add shine or oil.

It gets the job done as far as smoothing your imperfections, but it is kinda chunky. It leaves residue on my face, I cannot get this to go on smooth. I actually purchased this because I seen a couple of youTubers use it when doing their makeup. It's too sticky for me.
Gray for oily skin
keke from texas
This stuff works wonders. Warm it up on your fingertips and PRESS it in your skin. I press it into my T-zone really. The white streaks people are getting is probably from them rubbing it on their face. You're suppose to press it in.
Not as amazing as I'd hoped
ER from MN
I loved how my skin felt after I applied a small amount of this primer. Like it was firmer and tightening. I received a free sample of this in a gift with purchase, and I was excited to try before buying.
Well, the edges that didn't get fully blended out turned opaque and white. And I tested both liquid and powder foundations as I use both. Powder foundation just turned scaly and lizard-looking immediately. Liquid foundation fared a bit better but still broke apart and made my skin oily (I have normal to dry skin). Overall, has a nice tightening effect, but does not get the job done.
It did shrink my pores however i got really oil really quick
Chels from Dallas, tx
Not sure if it's the foundation i used or if it is just over mattifying. Meaning it may have drew out to much moisture even after i moisturized. Which made me really greasy after just 2 hours and i was in a cool room just watching tv.
My NEW favorite!!!!!

If you want no shine on that mug this is definitely a plus!
Impossible To Love
Jess from Salt Lake City, UT
I was excited when I first got this cause I have oily skin. I tried warming it with my hands like it says to but after a minute I put it on my t-zone it became very dry and the areas I put it on became white and flaky. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong but it doesn't like my skin at all. I really wanted to love this but not for me.
I will purchase large size
Luv2shop from Phoenix
This is amazing. Kept me matte all day. I think it will be great when it gets super hot. I love that it is oil free and fragrance free, sweat and humidity resistant. You pat into skin, a pea size amount. Works so good. You can also apply over makeup.
No sparkles, yay
Max from AZ
I moisturize before applying. Pat all over. It does work to give that matte finish without the foundation. I dont like how some foundations oxidize on my skin. So this just became an overnight favorite for me and Becca can have my lunch money in exchange for the full size tube.
Carlos j from Chicopee, MA
So I decided to give matte foundation and primer a try. I prefer a natural finish but figured I would go for something different. The minute I put this primer on I knew I made a mistake. It instantly became dry and crunchy. It felt awful and didn't apply evenly because it dried as soon as I tried rubbing it in. I was left with a ton of white, dry streaks all over my face. This product is not for me.
Jen from Upland
I only use this on my nose where I'm super oily. Helps keep it at bay for the most part. Make sure to pat, not rub. Rubbing it in makes it pill
Super drying, leaves white cast, and balls up.
PJ from RI
I do have dry skin, so I always moisturize before applying any makeup, but this was awful. I tried to work with this so many times, but no matter what I did I ended up removing my makeup.
When you squeeze it out of the tube, after it shoots across the room, of course, it even feels dry. It is such a strange consistency. It does fill your pores, but once it dries it turns white and sits on top of the skin. If you wait for it to dry before applying anything, it just flakes off. It looks and feels like flour that was wet, but dried and now has cemented to your face. If you rub it, it will ball up.
When you apply foundation on top, just the action of blending causes the primer to ball up leaving patches all over your face. This happened even if I used a brush, sponge, or just tapped my foundation in with a finger.

I have sensitive super oily skin in it works very well. For me blurs put my pores I don't even have to wear foundation I just wear this in my skin looks prefect
Worst primer I've ever used
Katy from Merica
It was literally glue. But did nothing for my pores. In fact it somehow made them worse. Didn't even work with their own Becca foundation or any other brands I had. I'm really disappointed by this brand in general.

This is my 1st time using this product & I absolutely love it
Tiffanynicole99 from Louisiana
I have tried primer after primer due to my extremely oily skin! I got this 2 days ago. I live in Louisiana and the last 2 days have been 100 degrees and the humidity is stifling. I sweat on my face A LOT! Today i applied at 10am and at 5pm my face is still dry and not at all shiny!!! That's amazing. It is thick and feels like very heavy when it dries. Not a negative for me. I also wear full coverage foundation. I was wearing Estée Lauder Double Duty and decided I would try this with Revlon ColorStay for Combination/Oily skin. Normally i would have had to blot a million times plus add powder after about 2 hrs. If it keeps going like this I will never switch back to any other primer again!! I also have acne prone skin but this has not made my face break out at all!
MJ from AL
This primer works so well to keep my oily skin at-bay under my makeup, but is a mess to apply. It clumps together and flakes off very easily.
Brie from Arkansas
I just got this product in a beauty break sample bag from Ulta, and OMG. I have super oily skin and live in the south, so I never expect much from any product that 'claims' to matte my oily face. This Becca primer seriously kept my face matte for a long time and even after 4-5 hours, only a little shine came through. I couldn't believe it! I used it a few more times to make sure I wasn't dreaming and it still worked wonders! I will be buying this when my sample runs out!
tranquilcorgi from Lafayette, IN
Got a small sample of it from my last purchase and decided to try it out. It feels so strange on my face and makes me feel as if I'm putting glue on my face.
Thatmaxx from Cleveland
My tube popped open on the end that supposed to be sealed, so yes I deducted points for that. The product itself is okay. Better than most, you will still get shiny after a period of time
Lori from NC
This product is amazing. I have a shiny T-zone no matter what makeup I tried. I apply after applying Benefit's mattifying gel & primer. I just use a teeny bit and pat it on my nose, chin, and forehead. Then I apply foundation. No issues at all. No SHINE!! It really is like liquid blotting paper.
The ONLY primer for my very oily skin
tatsmcgee32 from Starkville, Ms
I will never ever ever think about buying another primer except this one ever again. it keeps my greasy face looking pretty matte all day long (and I live in the South, so you know my makeup is tested on the daily). Just a reminder, this application is a bit different than most. Warm up with your fingers first, gently pat on the skin DO NOT WIPE, SMEAR, or DRAG across the face. This causes the product to ball up and clump making foundation look like trash. I promise, if you are greasy and need to nip that in the bud as part of your routine, this is it. I even wear it just by itself on makeup free days to control the oil slick I get by the end of the day. Well worth every single penny
CNJ from Georgia
I have combination/oily skin, so I only apply this produce in my T zone before applying my foundation and by the end of the day my face doesn't feel oily at all anymore! I will forever use this.
