Mattifying primer

I have been using and really like Boots No7 T zone rescue but they appear to have stopped making it! It worked really well for keeping the shine at bay. I have bought a soap and glory one to try but I'm shiny in the afternoon when I didn't use to be. Can anyone recommend a good mattifying primer? I've tried a benefit one and didn't find that worked that well either (not for the cost anyway).

Becca Ever Matte is pricey but fantastic. It immediately takes the shine off and keeps make up there all day.

Oh I've never heard of that-prob a bit more than I was thinking of spending but I bet it'd last for ages. Might check it out thanks!

I like the NYC pore filler

Smashbox one is really good for keeping shine at bay, think its called photo finish??

I e never tried that smash box one actually but heard loads of good things about it. Away to Google nyc pore filler too!

Sorry, I think it's nyx - damn autocorrect

I didn't get on with Smashbox

lanacane anti chafing gel.

I know it sounds mad but it has exactly the same ingredients as the smash box primer and works brilliantly. It cost about £6.

Body shop insta blur. I wear it alone and it's the only thing I've found which stops my shiny spam from scaring work colleagues

Interesting Ladybird! I do love a life hack! I've tried the insta blur actually and it didn't really work that great for me-and I was gutted as I love body shop stuff!

Loreal infallible primer is matte

Another one who hates the bodyshop instablur.
It made me look like a dried old prune, devoid of any moisture. My foundation went on horribly over it too.
Not a good look at all.

Benefit's Porefessional. They do a couple of different ones, but they all reduce pores and shine and are a matte finish.. Generally about 25 quid for a big tube but a small amount goes very far! You can buy a little tester (or they give them free sometimes in boots) first to give it a try before buying the big tube!

Sorry I must of not read the post properly just saw you say you tried benefit. Though might be worth trying a different one as like I said they have a few.
