I can't think of any other way to describe this then...

Awesome! Awesome, awesome product. At first I won't lie, I was very unsure about how pigmented it was and although it does take some rubbing in to the skin to make sure you don't look as pale as a ghost I definitely swear by this. It gives a light weight feel and doesn't feel dewy or 'wet' like, which I like. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a cheap and successful product. Helps my foundation go on so nicely and dare I say better than a lot more high end brands that I've tried. Go get it!!!!!

Read my full review here - http://emzyg.blogspot.co.uk/

I love using this primer for many many reasons. As well as evening my skin tone, it undeniably fills my pores and fine lines (I have too many for a 24 year old.)

It makes my skin look fresh and feel soft, without feeling and looking oily

It DOES make my make up last all day

And I feel it helps the overall quality of my skin.

As it is a ‘Photogenic’ product, I am always taking an extra close look at pictures of myself. I have found that they do look much more floorless and natural. I will say however, that this is providing you don’t use too much of the primer. If you use too much your face will reflect any flash used, and you can become a little washed out. One pump of this product should be enough… and all that means is it will last longer and you will get your money’s worth from it.

I always use to believe that primers were useless, greasy horrible products. NYX have proved me wrong. I now believe I am loyal to this product, as I find it difficult to leave the house without wearing it.

It is simple to apply. I just use my finger over my T-Zone and the buff it in using a kabuki brush.

So, if you are looking for a new easy to use primer, that does what it says on the tin, I would certainly recommend this one.

I hope this helped.

Easy fix but not my go-to product

I was so excited when I found a primer that was "HD ready" and all but I was really disappointed when I used it. It's great as a quick fix, but truly my #1 primer will always be Makeup Forever's HD Microperfecting Primer.

Impressive

I reach for this quiet often. I find a lot of primers are very oily but this is a nice formula. It applies smoothly and blends in to the skin well. It doesn't take long to dry and leaves skin smooth and ready for foundation.

This is my first face primer, but along with the liquid foundation, it looks good! At first I didnt like it either because I thought it made me look too white but then I tried it again, but used a much smaller amount. Even with that smaller amount, I found it to look perfect. Just make sure that you put it on evenly and not too much of it.

Good!

This is the first time that I used a face primer. I liked the result and I agree with the other grils, the product is sticky and you have to let it dry a lit bit before applying other stuff!

Here is a review about it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8r9k...

The color was good in my skin!

Not bad

This is the first face primer that I have ever tried, I wanted to try a face primer product first to see if I would like the overall effect that this kind of product would give me (without shelling out too much money at first).
I got this product for a great price at IMATS when it was in my local area. Overall I would say that I do like how this product does keep your makeup on for longer. It helps to control the oil/shine that develops throughout the day. I don't think by using this product alone there is much coverage, unless you have flawless skin. Although this product does help to reduce a bit of redness on your face. It's not a thick formula, but it is still a bit hard to blend into your skin, even if you just take a little bit at a time.
This face primer is a bit sticky, but after applying it all over your face you do have to wait and let it set for a bit before proceeding with the rest of your face makeup. I do however like the overall effect of this product, but I just think that there might be a better face primer out there.

Fantastic

Overall, this has quickly become one of my favorites. It goes on smooth. It leaves a lovely silky layer to my skin that covers my large pores, and helps to ease my dry skin patches. Never bothers my sensitive skin at all. It feels a bit odd at first, but having used DHC Velvet Coat I was used to it. If you smooth on the product, then let it sit for a minute or two it will set perfectly. It honestly leaves such a soft matte finish. Perfect for combination skin. I love it.
