Foundation was basically sliding off my skin within an hour after application.
my face was sooo shiny when I used that.TERRIBLE!
Definitely not for my oily skin..:c Pricey(PHP2000) and not really worth the price.what was I thinking.
The perfect primer to withstand the summer humidity!
This gloriously lightweight, lotion style primer leaves my skin considerably soft, while smoothing out any abnormalities. I like teaming this primer with liquid foundations, yet I am partial to it during those warmer, summer days when I need to avoid anything too rich and heavy coating my skin. The formulation compliments my oily skin and keeps it relatively shine-free throughout the day, bereft drying it right out. It helps my makeup glide on seamlessly, encouraging it to appear fresher and to remain in place for much longer.
I swear by this primer
I have oily skin and I originally used to use Avon Magix Face Protector. I changed my skin regimen and I saw my natural skin was improving as were my levels of excess sebum. So I thought it best to switch primers and thereafter my foundation went on like a DREAM! I mean I am still oily however the improvement is significant. Like many of the ladies have already mentioned you only need a pea-sized amount.
I thought I would get a great primer product out of this tube but found that it was average. You don't need to use a whole lot for application. Only a pea-sized amount would do for your face or else get ready for overslathering! The oil-free formula doesn't prove itself much in this tube...I didn't see much of a difference. Not really worth it for the price!
I'm still on the search for the holy grail primer, but so far this is my favorite. I've gone through about 3 of these. Sometimes I do feel like it really doesn't make the biggest difference, but if I ever go a day without it I notice that my skin is oilier and my makeup doesn't stay on as well, especially around my t-zone.
Only a pea-sized amount is needed. If you use too much then it doesn't help at all, which is the same with all primers.
I also noticed that without using a primer, foundation (I only use liquid foundation) doesn't go on as smoothly and can get patchy and I have to blend a lot more than when I don't use this.
I like that there is an oil-free option with the Laura Mercier primers. Some brands do not have that option.
This came in my Flawless Face kit and I'm thoroughly unimpressed by it. It comes out like a white lotion and does nothing to make my skin feel prepped for foundation. It just feels like an extra layer of nothing on my skin. I'm used to primers that smooth out my skin and hide pores and fine lines, but this is more like a lotion. It also has an odd smell, kind of like a pool.
The search is over...
I believe in primer in that it acts as a shield but it wasn't until I discovered LM's oil-free version that I was willing to commit. I have combo skin and tend to breakout on occasion, so this was the perfect solution.
Primer is good
I never thought primer was necessary, it was like toner to me. One of those things that you fork out money to buy but you could live without. But there is such a difference when you use it! I am a super Bare Essentials foundation fan and sometimes I feel like I need a little bit of assistance with my skin before I apply the foundation. Usually after I wash my face squeaky clean, it's hard for makeup to stay put and go on evenly that's when I discovered what primer was for. I like the LM one because its totally light-weight and oil-free. There's a ton of primers out there are heavy so beware. Thankfully, not this one :)
