I got this primer to fill in 1 of my big pore that annoys me every time I put my makeup on. The foundation doesn't settle in there so it looks like big black hole. After trying this I can see a big difference. It fills it in, with this most velvety moussey silky feeling, and makes my foundation flawless. A little goes a long way! My makeup lasts longer and it controls a bit of oil trough out the day. Half star blank as it can be pricey. I got it on a 50% sale.
Does the job
This is a great primer. It keeps my make-up lasting all day and no shine! Although you only need a little to cover your whole face I still find the jar very small.
I love this product, I am almost ready to use my back up! I love the texture that it gives your face after applying, and makes your skin the smoothest softest canvas for your foundation be it powder or liquid. Sometimes I just wear the base by itself (no makeup days) or w/ fix + and it makes the face look more refined, and helps minimize oil IMO...
The texture is amazing! It feels so good on my skin. My foundation indeed last throughout the day. And my skin, looks flawless. I love it! Plus - it smells nice.
I had great expectations when I first tried out this primer, but they weren't met at all. When I tried to put it on with my fingers it blended in really difficult and it was kinda blotchy , after blending it in with a brush it went a bit better but I still could feel it like a mask on my face. My make up did stayed on longer but I really don't like the feeling of the primer. I think people with dry skin shouldn't use. A better alternative is the Gosh Velvet Touch Line Perfector.
This primer defiantly made my face really smooth, but it didn't help my makeup stay on any better. I was hoping for more from the product. For the price, I wouldn't recommend it.
Be careful if you have sensitive skin
I used it only once and had allergic reaction to it. My face was rough and I had pretty bad breakout after using this only once. Thank god, I did not buy the full size product- tried out only a tester.It was easier to apply foundation and blend it, did not notice any difference in wrinkles (hah don´t have many yet) or pore size.
There are Better, Cheaper Drugstore Primers
It might just be me, but I thought this product was a waste of my money.
I have oily skin, and this felt so thick on it and made me feel like I was adding grease to my face.
It left parts of my face feel smoother, but I also felt like it left me looking lighter, which as a dark skinned girl I don't appreciate.
The other major issue was that I didn't feel like it did anything to keep my foundation on longer.
For me, this was overpriced and didn't work. My Hard Candy Sheer Envy Primer in the Ultra Light formula is cheaper, and works much better for my skin. I do not recommend this.
THE BEST I HAVE TRIED
This base is absolutely amazing. I must admit I was skeptical. Ha I got over that fast
this base is great on my entire face n I have n oily t zone and combo skin. I so fell in lov w/ this product I purchased 2 more jars. This base makes my make up stay put and natural. It doesn't matter what foundation I use. I can use.Nars, Mac, bare escentuals, L'oreal true match and even alone with a tinted moisturizer. THIS PRODUCT IS TRUELY MAGICAL. THIS IS 1 OF MY MUST HAVES!!!
