AWESOME SAUCE! As others have mentioned, application method is key!! My skin is oily all over, especially in summer Houston, TX heat. It's been 95+ every single day all summer. Now that I have perfected application (which is super easy now that I know the product), this prevents my makeup from moving all day, creates a semi-matte finish all day, does not irritate my skin or break me out, is light, and plays well with other products. It's very pricey but the bottle really does last a very long time as you don't need much to get the job done.I always moisturize first when I use this product. I let my moisturizer set, then dispense a small pea size amount on 1 finger tip, then rub gently between 4 fingers to make an even layer for application (pointer and middle finger, both hands) and quickly PRESS and DAB on to my face in spots where I know I will become an oil slick. I love this product and will never be without it. It will leave white marks if you use to much. Take it easy! Use a small surface area to apply (i.e., fingertips), apply an EVEN layer, and only one layer if you can! :-)

This product has a learning curve to it, but I FINALLY figured out how to use it and I absolutely love it. I should add that unless you have oily/very oily skin, this is not going to do anything for you. I have oily skin that borders on very oily in the summer, and this primer has been miraculous for keeping my makeup matte throughout the day. To use this, I use about half the size of a pea, rub it between my fingers, and lightly PAT (do. not. rub.) over my t-zone and cheeks, which are the oiliest part of my face. This method, paired with any foundations, helps keep my face matte for hours, and even at the end of the a hot and humid day in DC, my face is nowhere near the oil slick that it would be without this primer. I think the price is very reasonable for the amount I have to use and the amount that you get.

For very oily skin only.The bad reviews on here I think must be from people who's skin is not in the super oily category. My face is like an oil slick after an hour max.You need a small amount on the back of your hand and then press onto t-zone without rubbing. I have tried everything to keep the oil at bay and this is the ONLY product that's ever worked. Expensive but if you have truly oily skin it's worth it.

I have spent £1000's on products promising to stop oil under makeup with all leaving me with little or no difference. I have hundreds of bottles on used once or twice but this product is amazing.I imagine only good for super oily skin, but it's only thing which means I don't have to blot my face all day at work. It's literally a god send. I cannot recommend it anymore.

I usually read other people's reviews before posting a review, but I thought this was SO HORRENDOUS that I have to post it right away! I bought this primer by impulse (I LOVE my hourglass primer) I just wanted something new to try. HUGE MISTAKE!!Becca has some star products, but this has got to be the WORST! When you put it on it dried out my face sooooo badly. AND LEFT WHITE MARKS everywhere I applied it, even using a small amount! And also my face had ZERO dew left, it looked SO unnatural, and very aging because young skin is supposed to have a little bit of sheen. I have oily skin, and this made my skin look like it's DRY!!! I tried it for 3 days, all I got out of it was 2 huge very angry cystic pimples (the kind I got as a teenager!) This is going back to Sephora. Lesson learnt- If it aint broke, DONT FIX IT

The Ever-Matte Primer is extremely mattifying, but the texture is very hard to work with. It balls up when I start applying foundation over it, making it look like I have a lot of dead/flaky skin in the ares where I've applied it. Even when just used by itself, it doesn't really seem to absorb into the skin, it just kind of sits on top and looks/feels heavy.It doesn't seem to increase the longevity of my foundation, either. I wouldn't buy this again. It does give a very matte appearance but I don't feel like that matters if it ends up making your skin look/feel worse in other ways.

Amazing for my oily/sensitive skin! NO BREAKOUTS! I cannot use a regular primer. Silicones just dont like my skin. This primer keeps me matte without fail. This is silicone free and helps keep my makeup on. LOVE IT. It is pricey and I wish the product was easier to get out of the tube. It is a little thick and can be hard to squeeze out. And a little does go along way!

I've come to the conclusion that sales associates at sephora are useless....anywho, like many other reviewers have expressed here, this stuff doesn't do much. Whether I wear this under my foundation or not, I don't see much of a difference in oil control. It's also very difficult to apply. It's a clay like texture and if not warmed with your finger tips and applied fast, it will clump all over your face. You can find much better primers for half its price. Glad I only got a sample of this crap.
