Primer for EXTREMELY oily skin??

I have a super oily skin. Which is good? Too Faced cooling matte primer, Too faced Primed & Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer, Smashbox pore minimizing primer, or Benefit porefessional?

Re: Primer for EXTREMELY oily skin??

Hi @CossieGlow,


I suggest the BECCA - Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector. This is a heavy duty primer and it really mattifies the skin and keeps oil at bay. A tip for application is to press the product into the skin. Do not rub it in or it will pill. 


I also suggest the Smashbox Photo Finish Smooth & Blur Oil-Free Foundation Primer 1 oz/ 30 mL.


I hope this helps! 


Best Wishes,

I have really oily skin.  I just tried the Becca Ever Matte and had to blot several times throughout the day.  Foundation disappeared from my nose, under my nose, and my chin.  Will keep searching.

I swear by MakeupForever mattifying primer! Also, I have had matte skin for longer periods of time when I use the Urban Decay mattifying primer as well.
