Best Oil Free Primers?
Ok, I have a question about Primers for my oily skin. I have been through Smashbox, Tarte, Laura Mercier Radiance Primer (I know its not oil free), maybe another one or two brands.
I have my skincare routine down, using PTR, and its worked wonders for me! I changed from Smashbox BB cream, to Tarte Tinted Moisturizer, then to Dr. Jart Black Detox BB cream. I had been waiting for a long time for the new Dr Jart Black Detox BB cream to become available.
It does do a lot more for my skin, but I'm finding that I get extremely oily with any of the above mentioned Primers. I have been looking into a few lightweight, oil free Primers, I have narrowed down the list to get opinions on :
Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer, Tarina Tarantino Glow Pearl Primer, Urban Decay has 2 face primers I haven't seen before, Too Faced Primed and Poreless oil free white bottle, and PTR makes an Un - Wrinkle Primer (not sold at Sephora)
Does anyone have any experience with any of the Primers that I mentioned, and had good luck with having oily skin? I would truly appreciate any advice or opions :-)

Hi, I too have extremely oliy skin and have tried several differnet primers.  I most definitely have to agree with the one blogger who recommended Houglass Mineral Veil.  While it is very expensive, the jar will last a long time.  Ii've had my bottle for about 6 months....you only need 1 pump for your whole face.  It makes your face feel fabulous.  As far as decreasing the oiliness though, I'm not yet convinced it's my HG.  I asked the experts, and one of them suggeted the Givenchy Mister Mat.  She felt that the HG Mineral Veil was a bit too heavy for my extremely ( and I mean extremely oily) oily skin. With that being said, the HG has performed better that any other primer I have tried so far....ANY....Urban Decay, Nars, Murad, PTR, VICHY, MUFE, Smashbox, Smashbox Lite...and the list goes on.  But, I've just purchase the Givnechy to see if it actually is better than the HG.  If not, I'm going to try the New Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Stay Matte Hydrator.  Usually I don't care for Clinique, but this product has had really great reviews as far as decreasing oil.  Best of luck.
