Givenchy Mister Mat Matifying Primer - 25ml - $42 - a mattifying powder gel primer that can be used alone or under makeup for a velvety smooth complexion. The lightweight fluid softens and hydrates with silicone gum extracts while plant extracts work to control sebum production, which provides a long-lasting matte effect that remains light enough to let skin breathe. The subtle light-blue pearlescent shimmers counteract a dull look and minimize the appearance of large pores, leaving skin looking bright and glowing.
What's especially nice about it is not only can you use it under makeup, but you can also use it throughout the day over makeup to touchup any super oily areas!
Available at Givenchy counters across Canada.
