This is the first primer I've used so I don't have much to compare to but I really like it. It minimizes my pores quite a bit and makes my skin perfectly smooth,
I think I'd try out some other primers before buying this one again as it's more expensive than the foundation and I think there is definitely better products available out there.
In my opinion primer is primer. This primer is good. It does have a more dry feel to it, but it gets the job done. It's lasting me a really long time as well. Some people may not like the feel of it. Some may say it doesn't fell like anything and some may just say it feels dry.
Not worth the price
I heard A LOT of great review on this product and wanted to try it myself. It is a total waste of money. I was disappointed. When you apply it onto your face, it feel so dried out. Even when dispensing it onto your finger tips, you can already feel the dryness. It makes my face look old after putting it on since it dried out my skin before i even apply my foundation on. It does have a weird plastic smell to it but bearable since it goes away in like a couple of second. Not worth paying $11 for this product tho.
I honestly love this product so much! I've tried several other primers and nothing compares so far. It feels like silk on my skin and helped minimize my pores and give me a flawless look. I have an uneven skin completion and this helped out even everything out and made my foundation last.
Makes my skin look so much better!
It gives you a very soft velvety feel to your skin after applying and I've noticed how big of a difference there is from using this with foundation and not. It also helps to keep my foundation from turning an orange tint.
I like how instead of squeezing it out of a tube of applying with a small brush they give you a pump.
The only downside to this is the smell of it. You can smell the chemicals or whatever they put into it.
I like it and would buy again (but won't need to for a while)
I've been using this product daily for about 3 weeks now and I like this considering the fact that it is a drugstore primer. I use primers to help control oil in my T-Zone and under my eyes(I get VERY OILY). It definitely helps to control the oil. I have tried it under foundation, concealer, and a TM (tinted moisturizer). it works just fine under all of them. It smoothes out my skin and makes my foundation, concealer, and TM glide on a lot easier and smoother. I didn't think the product was ridiculously thick. It doesn't have a horrible smell and it is pretty moisturizing for my skin type. It doesn't dry to fast but I usually don't spend 10 minutes applying primer anyways. Lately, I have been applying this right after I cleanse my face and then I apply my Smashbox TM on top. Even after 5 hours, everything still looks great. You get a lot of product so it will definitely last you a while. Overall, I like this product.
This product does not feel like a primer at all! I put it on after my moisturizer, and it just doesn't seem to do anything. Doesn't fill imperfections, make my foundation look smoother, nothing! You get a lot of product, which is good for the price, but the product itself is an unnecessary part of my foundation routine compared to other primers I've used.
Plus it has a weird, plasticy smell to it. And is thick, and almost powdery feeling to me.
I've been using this primer for about two weeks now, and i like it. It really smoothes out your skin and somewhat diminishes the look of your pores. It seems to keep my makeup on all day, and it doesn't feel heavy or sticky on my face even though its a little bit thicker. I have to say though, that my skin has been a little dry lately, which is strange due to the fact that my skin is usually somewhat oily or normal. I didn't think that this primer had anything to do with that until I read the reviews on this product, so that could be it. Either way though, it is not overly dry, and its only in some areas. I still like this product and will continue to use :)
I just bought this product and when I first applied it, it was really smooth and felt like lotion but be sure to blend really fast because it doesn tend to dry rather quick. Right now, 2 hours later, my face feels the same and looks pretty good. The reason for my rating was because I think that there maybe some other drugstore primers that are better than this... But I will still definately reuse this again.
Not worth the price
I just bought this product and its not what i thought it was. My makeup sank into my pores 20 mins after i put my foundation on. Its very watery, i thought it would be more on the thicker side. ive been using hardcandy primer and im sad to say that its better then this and a 5 dollar difference.
