oily and gross
This primer makes my face feel like I just took crisco (cooking oil) or butter and rubbed it on my face. It just sits on my face and makes it feel nasty. My foundation sits on top of the primer but never soaks in. So if I blow my nose or my hair touches my face the foundation in that spot comes off completely leaving a very blotchy looking foundation. I have normal skin with few issues, in the summer I get a little oil in my T zone, but this primer made my skin very oily. Might work better for someone with extremely dry skin?
I like this it is easy to apply and it blends well it was kind of pricey but worth it blending is key when you apply this before putting on the foundation
It does really do what it say under your foundation,,,but without foundation it doesn't really cover all you pores or your blemishes...it kinda pricey for such a small jar..but you can find them on sale..otherwise it works.. dint break me out..
I love love love
This is a great product. I love this product because it gives my makeup (foundation) a completely different look, my makeup is really perfected with this base. The jar is little but a little bit on your fingertip goes a long way. It smells great and feels amazing on my skin. I have oily skin but it keeps my makeup looking great and not caky and doesn’t break me out.
Heavy on the silicone
Not all primers are created equal. I found after purchasing this primer that I am really not a fan of the super silicone primers that have a lot of slip to them. Putting this on my skin just felt like I was wearing a mask. But my foundation did look good.
Does what it says it does!
This stuff is amazing! It's perfect for my combination skin. It glides on smooth and blends easily. People complain about the size but you only need a little bit. I just dip my ring finger in and dab some on my forehead, cheeks, chin, nose and blend it in after applying my moisturizer. It mattifies your skin and makes it smooth for any type of foundation you want to apply. It also lasts all day. I used it on a day I went to Universal Studios where it was hot and I got wet in the face a couple of times and my makeup stayed in place. I will definitely be repurchasing this product again!
I'm very glad that I found this primer simply because it gets the job done for a cheap price & is found virtually at any location. So if I forget my primer on a trip, I know that it's just a drugstore away! It gets the job done by leaving your skin soft, smooth, & silky. Definitely works with my oily/combination skin and have not had a problem with breakouts after using this product (I can be sensitive). However, I do not prefer the texture of it because I have to rub it in more so than my other primers. Also, the jar makes it a little inconvenient because it can get under your nails, etc.
I went out and bought this because I heard so many great reviews on it! I am happy to say I was not dissapointed! I am absolutely loving this product. I have extrememly oily skin :(. My skin tends to get super oily in my "T zone". By applying just a small amount with my ring finger I distribute the product on the most oily parts of my face and it works really great. I work 8 hours shifts and I am face to face with clients, So ofcorse I wana look my best at all times. I hate it when my skin begins to look shiny and oily. I've only been using "Studio Secrets Professional Secret No.1 Magic Perfecting Base" for a week and I love it. The matte finish it's perfect for oily or combination skin, I would highly suggest this product. I am very happy with my purchase. Worth every penny. =)
like this product
Leaves the skin so silky I like it the only thing I don't like is the size kind of small and also if you have nails kind of uncomfortable to use on the little glass jar it comes in and it does not work with all foundations.
Great low end primer
This is a great low end drugstore primer. I love it. It goes on so nice and leaves your skin with a great satin/velvet smooth finish. And you dont need to apply alot for it to work. I just apply 5 small dots to my cheeks, forehead, and chin. Something I'll keep repurchasing.
