Best oil control primer?

Right now I'm using the too faced primed and poreless primer and as a primer it's really good, helps makeup stay on, leaves a smooth finish, fills in pores, but it doesn't do a whole lot to control oil, and I have really oily skin.


Just wondering what's the best oil control primer people have tried ?

From what I know, Givenchy Mister Mat (I second tenngal) and Make Up For Ever All Mat are wonderful. Both control oil and maintain oil absorbtion over a period of time.

One of the very best oil-controlling face primers I've used is Givenchy’s Mister Mat Mattifying Foundation Primer which you can read more about at:

One of the best things I've tried is Murad's oil control mattifier. It's not specifically a primer but that is how I'm using it and it works great. I stay shine free for at least 8 hours and it did help to minimize the appearance of my pores. You can also try Pop Beauty's face magnet primer (just do a google search for it)'s pretty inexpensive and works good, but the murad one worked better for me.

MAC's Mattifying Gel is good, and it's under 20 dollars. Try it =))))))))))))
