I got as a sample to try. I've been using it for a while now and I'm in love with it! This primer has no colour, it is kind of a Vaseline gel like formula. I was surprised at how light this formula was, when I put on my skin I can't even feel it! Usually for me, my primer feels like I'm putting on a lighter more liquidy moisturizer. This product literally goes on like BUTTER! So ridiculously smooth and you notice the smoothness instantly. What I really like about this product is that it takes no time to dry, you can go on with the rest of your makeup right after you apply it.
I do notice that my makeup goes on smoother, especially my mineral foundation and my concealer. Throughout the day my face is still smooth as ever and I have no shine to get rid of.
I would definitely look into buying a full size of this product in the future, the only thing that is really stopping me is the price tag this product comes with. Since I don't only use a little bit of this on my face I might just gift this to myself for the holidays.
Good for dry skin, bad for anything else!
I own this product and keep it in my kit for clients with SUPER dry skin. Any one with any other skin type can forget about using this primer as the makeup will slide off of your face. TOO MUCH silicone. Actually, I very rarely if ever use this product anymore...I've sinced moved to silicone free primers...much better on all skin types.
Best primer ever.
Absolutely adore this primer - yes it is a little expensive, but it's so amazing! Even by itself my skin looks better, smoother, more flawless. Almost as if it blurs imperfections on my face. Plus it keeps my makeup looking perfect for hours. It feels nice too - I love the siliconey feel! It doesn't make me shiny at all which is great too. Definitely recommend this.
I want to love this primer, because it did seem to be a nice finish. However, every time I've tried it, it's immediately made me break out all over. I would stop, try again--always broke out. The product isn't good enough to warrant that, so if you have sensitive or acne prone skin, I'd try another primer.
This is a good product, but it is not the best product. There are better face primers out there. This is good worn alone, but it still felt like my skin was oily and shiny all day. Even under foundation, I felt like it didn't protect the foundation from getting into the lines by the end of the day.
Just average I don't know what the HYPE is all about
I have been using this for about a year now. I continue to use it because I PAID for it! I haven't honestly tried any other FACE PRIMER. I am almost afraid. I have oil skin.. I mean I have to blot pretty much an hour after I have applied my foundation. When I went to Sephora I explained to the consultant that I had pretty oily skin and needed something that would help with oiliness and keep my make up put... well this did not work. I will not be purchasing this again. :(
I've received a sample of this primer in my Birchbox, and used it while I was on vacation last week. I really like the way it goes on, but I wouldn’t say this product is very different from other primers that I’ve tried. The only other primer I've used is Tarte’s Clean Slate primer, and this felt almost like that except the formula might have been a little bit thinner (which I prefer). My makeup went on smoothly and as far as I can tell, it helped it last throughout the day. I wouldn’t spend the money on this primer, though, when there are many alternative that are much cheaper and just as effective!
Something not worth trying
Its one of those products that you read about and you finally decided to buy the product. I brought it, applied it, and hated it. It made my skin break out. Its very smooth and in a way kind of weird for a primer. I was expecting something soft and smooth not just plain smooth. Won't be buying this again...
I love this product! It is one of the primers that leaves your skin feeling like silk. I can definitely tell the difference feeling wise when I wear my makeup with and without the primer. It lets your face makeup go on smooth and even. Awesome stuff. (:
I bought this primer on a whim but when I got home and applied it, I was glad I did. I have oily skin so I purchased the "light" one which is supposed to be oil free. The texture was weird, like a mouse/cream combo and I really couldn't tell how much to apply without it being too much. Once I played around with it some more and figured out the right amount to apply, it was perfect and my makeup lasted all day. I'd recommed that you find the right formula for you.
