LOVE. I use it under Estee Lauder Double Wear. This fills in my large pores around my nose area. It also helps foundation last way longer & helps foundation not catch dry spots. This doesn't aggravate my acne prone skin. Not sure if this actually helps with oilyness but I will keep using regardless
Upside this primer works absolutely well with the Smashbox Photo Ready foundation. Downside, I have tried to use it with other foundations, & it didn't hold other brand foundations. This primer has a very smooth touch. It glides on really well & you only need about a pea size amount to prime your face. It doesn't have a strong scent like some other primers I've used in the past. & it doesn't leave a film on your skin either!
It has it's days, but overall great!
This is a pretty decent primer for ladies with comb/oily skin. I have used this product with and without a moisturizer underneath as well as with/without a setting spray. When using this, I would definitely suggest letting it set on your face for at least 5-7 minutess before applying any product on top. You definitely want to let this absorb into your skin first, otherwise you will have a greasy/shiny face within 2-3 hours. Also for me, I must use some sort of setting spray to finish the look (especially matte) as this product will NOT do that for you. I have also noticed that this product works great with some of my foundations and not so hot for others. It's a silicone based, so my oily ladies use SPARINGLY. I also suggest starting out with the travel size first to get a feel of the product as it is not very cheap. Good luck!!!
I LOVE IT!
This primer is amazing! I have combination skin and I apply it after washing and moisturizing my skin. It applies and blends well and make my skin feel really smooth. At the moment, I wear tinted moisturizer, as oppose to foundation, on a regular basis. With wearing that, I can wear my makeup for about 10 hours without blotting (which is pretty darn good). I highly recommend this product for anyone that has combination skin.
I loved using this primer, it definitely made a difference in the application and wear of my foundation.
When my makeup is on, my skin does not appear flaking or dry, and it feels so nice and soft. I like the light version because my skin tends to get oily throughout the day, so i find this helps keep my skin a bit more matte.
This brand isnt too available in Australia, (i think it may be sold at myer but otherwise it's very hard to get) so I buy mine off ebay.
I love this stuff!! It is my favorite primer!! It really does my foundation last all day. I like primers that leave me with a matte finish rather than a dewy finish. This primer minimizes my imperfections like no other primer I have used. This primer is made for oily, acne-prone or sensitive skin. I have combination skin so this primer is perfect. If you have dry skin I would suggest using the regular Smashbox Photo Finish Primer. I just love how this primer makes my face look.
Great for Sensitive Skin
I have combination/sensitive skin & I absolutely love this foundation primer! It comes in a pump dispenser which is fantastic for using only a small amount at a time, and keeps it free from air contact which eliminates product contamination. It is oil-free & fragrance free which is perfect for my sensitive skin, and it sets on the skin quickly and makes it feel like silk - A perfect smooth base for my foundation!
