There are so many primers on the market, enough to confuse anyone just looking for one that simply primes and keeps makeup in place. I’ve tried many primers throughout my makeup years to know what type of textures I like and dislike. I was introduced to Givenchy Mister Mat back when I worked at Sephora and I instantly fell in love. I guess I should say that textures of primer I personally don’t like to use are primers that are silicone based. Ewww! Anyway that brings me to my next point. Givenchy Mister Mat is a silicone based primer!
Yes you heard me! and I love it. What I didn’t know was that there are many silicone based primers that have different textures and I have discovered that the more slip to a silicone based primer the more I disliked it. Givenchy Mister Mat has become one of my true loves in the primer family. Its light weight, fills imperfections and mattifies the skin on those hot summer days. You can wear it alone to control oil or underneath makeup. Its also great for men who also have oilier skin and want to control it. Another plus to the Givenchy Mister Mat primer is that it can be used to touch up throughout the day on top of your makeup, which alot of primers do not allow you to do without compromising your makeup application. The perfect amount to use is a dime size amount and evenly spread it along the face. For those who have an oilier t zone I would recommend starting in the t zone first and distributing the primer outwards.
Overall I love this primer, its always my go to for the warmer months and it makes my makeup look and stay fresh all. day.
