Prepare and seal your skin with this invisible Resurfacing Primer which instantly reduces the appearance of dilated pores and smoothes fine lines for a flawless finish. Applied on its own or under foundation, the velvety matte formulation helps to control unwanted shine with its special oil absorbing polymers which act as ‘fillers’ to create a refined base for makeup that will last all day.
Evermat with Oleanolic Acid to minimize pore size, refine skin texture and reduce surface shine
Glycerin to maintain hydration
Alcohol-free, Paraben-free, Fragrance-free.
To my surprise, BRP doesn’t leave a matt powdery finish; In fact, It has a creamy texture and leaves a veil of moisture & a rather dewy finish to enhance the application of powdery foundation thereafter. I think this can be too heavy if you’re using a liquid foundation ( unless it’s an oil free one ) as you could see from the ingredients list that Becca Resurfacing Primer actually contains a lot of oil.
In terms of line blurring & pore minimising, BRP’s performance is slightly above average. It does helps my foundation to last an hour or two longer & reduces oily breakthrough ( shall I say delays instead ).
For the price Becca is charging, £32/$40, I would expect more!
