I just got this at the Younkers (Carson’s ) closing sale! Y’all need to hurry and take advantage of the mass discounts they have in their beauty section. They have limited stuff but I picked this up on a whim because I love their double wear foundation. I wanted to stock up on the foundation but they didn’t have any more. Anyways I got this for $20!! This product seems very underrated in the beauty community. But I know this product will not disappoint. Way better than the Fenty primer, because that wasn’t doing it for me.Estée Lauder The Mattifier Shine Control Perfecting Primer + Finisher

I love the Estée Lauder Mattifier! I always enjoy using it with the Estée Lauder double wear foundation. I highly suggest it to those who have oilier skin. I never have to blot my face throughout the day when I use this primer. Easy application and light scent.

This is an amazing product. It helped control my extremely oily skin. It’s good for oily skin or normal skin. It does have a matte finish. It is easy to blend and leave the skin soft. It is pricey for only 1oz but it’s well worth it. I would buy again.

I can’t find another primer that I like whetted than this one. It has been a favorite for a couple years and I just keep coming back to it. It keeps my skin from getting oily all day, smooths out my skin and pores and feels very light under makeup.

Im so sad to be out of this product because of how well it works!! I have extremely oily skin and this primer keeps the shine to a minimum! I feels weightless on my face and my makeup lasts so much longer!

Container is very pretty. Formula is creamy and becomes smooth without being tacky. Product also smells nice without being over powering. I do feel that my pores are smaller or are completely covered when applying foundation and that my foundation stays in place longer.

I have dry skin and I use this to make my foundation have a matte finish. Love this stuff so much! It only takes a little to go a long way and the price is $37, so about the same as other primers. I would definitely recommend.

If you have oily skin like I do LISTEN UP. This stuff is amazing. A little goes a long way and it is definitely MATTE without being drying. My makeup lasts all day long even in the 110+ degree heat of Oklahoma.

This is a super hydrating primer that doesn’t make your face look oily why hydrating dry areas. Not only does it help even out pores but it also works as a great natural looking highlight over your foundation. This is also a great pair with FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation since it’s such a matte foundation.

My skin has recently changed from being dry to very oily so I am looking to buy a new matte primer to keep my foundation in lock. Has anyone tried this Estee Lauder primer and if you have would you recommend it? Seems a little pricey but is it worth it? Let me know. Thanks
