The quest for a perfect primer continues! In the spotlight today is Becca's Resurfacing Primer - Line & Pore Minimising & Mattifying formula. I immediately loved the texture of this when I tested a little on counter and this is basically what I based my purchase on. It's a soft, velvety cream that has a tiny siliconey feel to it but not in the same way as something like Smashbox Photofinish or similar as this has 'special sebum-absorbing polymers' that help to refine the look of the skin.
It feels light and smoothes on nicely, slightly diffusing the look of pores and softening the appearance of fine lines, giving a natural matte finish. I find it does help my makeup last a bit longer and reduce shine on my t-zone. I always have to powder this area anyway throughout the day but with this my skin doesn't get as shiny.
As I do have combo/acne-prone skin, I am always weary of face makeup clogging my pores/breakouts etc but this has been fine to use, with no adverse effects.
Only a little is needed as it does seem to glide well over the skin and as I don't use it everyday I have a lot left in the tube even though I've had this since February.
