I’ve been wanting to try Becca Ever Matte Poreless Priming Perfector for quite some time. I was really excited to get my package from Sephora, but to be honest, for all the hype, I wasn’t that impressed.
I typically use M.A.C Prep + Prime Skin as my primer for everyday makeup wear. But beauty bloggers worldwide have been raving about Becca’s primer so of course, I had to get my hands on it to see what all the fuss was about. I decided to get a travel size tube from Sephora which retails for $18.00. A full size bottle is 1.35 oz and costs $44.00.
The texture of this primer is almost like a creamy, Vaseline type of feel. I used it sparingly across my nose and around that area of my face. The pores in this area of my face are huge and can be seen from a distance.
Even though the texture of the primer was like Vaseline, it didn’t apply greasy at all. The finish was very smooth and matte indeed. I waited a few minutes and then applied my makeup. By about 10am is when I can really tell if I’m going to have a good face day. The primer was doing an okay job I suppose. But I just couldn’t see the difference between using this primer and my typical M.A.C primer.
In conclusion – I prefer M.A.C Prep + Prime Skin. I like that it comes out as a lightweight foam and I can see it filling in my pores when I apply it to my face. I like that the finish is silky smooth and it makes my face feel so soft that the makeup just glides right on. I also like the fact that Prep + Prime has little light reflectors that make my skin glisten. In fact, I sometimes wear it on non-makeup days just so I still look pulled together.
If you’re looking for a primer, give Becca Ever Matte Poreless Priming Perfector a try. But if you already have something that’s working for you – just stick to it. Sometimes what we need is already right in front of us.
