I can tell that it's the best primer on the market! It works perfectly with my extremely oily skin. It keeps my skin all day matte, everything glides on easily, and the pigments are so powerful if you apply this primer under your foundation. It changed my life. I would recommend it to girls with oily skin.
Does What it Claims.
This primer is pretty good id say. It goes on smooth, it smooths on your skin great, it makes your foundation look flawless and it makes it last. It is a bit on the pricy side so I do not buy this for myself, but instead put it in my makeup kit for clients. I love the fact that it is HD, so it looks good in photos with no glare, shine or flash back. This primer has what I'd call a velvet texture and so one downfall is I feel like I have to use a lot of product to cover the face. Overall if your willing to pay the price it is a good HD face primer.
Works Great but $$
I would have given this 5 stars if it weren't for the fact that I use this stuff much more quickly than other primers, such as Smashbox's Photo Finish. As much as I love the design of the pump bottle, I think it makes it a little bit difficult to control how much you use.
As far as the product itself, though, it really does hold onto my foundation (Kat Von D Lock-It) well, and it does a good job of moisturizing as well.
I have this in both blue and green. The blue one is nice for when my skin's behaving and I actually love it best when I wear it without BB cream or foundation. I just put it on, put on my makeup, and go. It gives me a nice "lit from within" glow. The green is better when I have a bad breakout- I get all kinds of red, and the green helps tone it down and with a little BB cream or foundation, I look like me again. One thing about the green, though, is that you really have to rub it in or you look sickly green when you put your foundation on. You don't have to rub the blue in at all, just apply and go. At least I expected that much out of the green, since I use it to actually cover.
i love this brand's primers
I think their primer is really good...it makes my face look so smooth and picture perfect! it really does control oil, I love this primer. I like to use it with bare minerals which is a really really good combination.
so apply this primer to clean face first and just brush on bare minerals powder and your good to go! it also lasts for the whole day! and my skin does tend to get oily especially in the summer! I highly recommend!
not worth the price...
on my journey to find a good primer for my oily skin, one of the lady at Sephora convinced me to try this pricey product. at first i was excited to try it only to recently discover that it wasn't as great as she said it was! although it does keep your make up on a little "longer" i still find my self re-touching, and blotting after a 2-3 hrs of applying make-up. im sure there's better primers who do what they say for same price, if not, cheaper. still trying to find a good primer >:(
