Best primer for rosacea sufferers?

On a S&B recommendation, I bought a bare minerals primer over the summer which was excellent at covering my rosacea. Went to buy a new bottle this week and they've discontinued the special anti-redness one which is really disappointing. Anyone know of a good substitute?

I was using Smashbox Photo Finish. It's clear and oil free and very good.
I've just started using Hourglass Mineral Primer Veil and I love that but it's more expensive. Ask for samples so you can try them.

Try lily lolo and they might have something similar? I don't use primer but have found the quality of their foundation to be excellent

Just had a quick look and they have
A mineral corrector called Blush Away which counteracts redness

Everything apart from the ones I mentioned make my red race even redder. Anything anti redness seems to make it a lot worse. I'm a freak.

What skincare do you use, as in do you feel that it helps with the redness? Dermalogica do a primer that is fragrance free (redness relief primer spf 20, I think) and that does not seem to have anything nasty in it or essential oils etc.
