The new Bobbi Brown Primer Plus Mattifier is a lightweight face primer that is designed to extend the longevity of foundation while controlling oil, blurring pores and help balance skin’s moisture level. It claims to keep skin looking matte, never flat!
Even though my skin is on the drier side, I tend to get an oily t-zone in summer time. That’s why I like to prep my skin with a mattifying base (rather than my favorite hydrating primer) when it’s hot and humid. So, the new Bobbi Brown Primer Plus Mattifier landed on my desk at the perfect time!
First off, I love the sleek black packaging of this primer…chic and elegant. The formula itself is lightweight and smooths out my skin quite nicely, helping my foundation apply more smoothly. And I love how it blurs my pores!
This primer plus mattifier does a great job of keeping my t-zone shine-free all day without any touchups, especially when I use it with the Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation SPF 15. It’s the perfect pair for a long-lasting matte makeup look!
In addition to being pore-smoothing and mattifying, the Bobbi Brown Primer Plus Mattifier also contains sodium hyaluronate to keep skin’s natural moisture level balanced. And probably that’s the reason this primer helps my skin stay matte but doesn’t make it look dry…definitely a plus in my book! Looks like I have found my go-to primer for summer!
If you struggle with very oily skin and wondering if Bobbi Brown Primer Plus Mattifier can help you keep the oily shine to a minimum, the answer is yes! My friend Rachel has super oily skin (that’s acne-prone too) so I asked her to try this primer as well and see if it can go the distance when it comes to oil-control. Rachel is my go-to girl for putting any matte makeup to the test (and she’s really GOOD at it!)
So, according to her, this primer keeps her oily skin shine-free for at least 5-6 hours before she finds herself reaching for a blotting paper. She also likes how this product blurs her pores nicely, doesn’t feel heavy on her skin and prolongs the wear time of foundation. Overall, she gives it a thumbs-up too!
Bobbi Brown Primer Plus Mattifier is available for purchase at Sephora for $38.
