Grooming Guru Essentials: Givenchy Mister Mat Mattifying Foundation Primer

There are few products I elevate to true Must Have status but this pocket-sized mattifing gel by Givenchy is one of them. Though I generally have skin comparable in texture to your average rice cracker I do occassionally suffer from what I call ‘chip shop chops’ (look, I’m Northerner ok? It’s how we talk). This most often manifests itself in a nose so greasy  you could probably cook a full english on it.

This genius little mattifying primer from Givenchy, however, is the perfect antidote, absorbing excess oil and generally leaving skin looking much-improved – kind of like Photoshop in a tube.

Several of the products in the Mister range were marketed directly at men last year (the matt black packinging and ‘Mister’ moniker helps) but having the words ‘Matte-finish make up gel’ kind of gives the game away that it’s essentially for women. Still, why should the girls have all the best products?

Worth trying too, by the way, is the new Mister Radiant – a product containing  tiny microbeads of pigment along with ones containing vitamin E to improve the appearance of the skin and give it some subtle colour.

Grooming Guru Essentials are the products I genuinely love and have used as part of my own routine.
