I've been happily using this primer since it launched on Beautylish in Dec. I think it does a good job of keeping my combo skin matte and is the only way that I can wear the glow foundation. Without it the foundation stays to emollient and gets to shiny as the day wears on. Typically I only need to use the magic primer in my t-zone. I love the packaging and like that it's a new shape/ style for primer packaging thank others I have. I have noticed that a little goes a long way and 1 tiny pump is really all I need. The only reason I knocked a star off is for the price. It's 55.00 for 30 ml. As opposed to the Cover FX Mattiying primer that I also really like, which is 38.00 for 30 ml. Overall I have to give it high marks for performance and find it to be a splurge worthy purchase!!!
I've got very oily skin and have used Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizer as my standard primer. The MUFE makes my skin tone initially very matte with fair oil control for about 4-5 hours. Then I have to blot away ... And blot again :)
I tried out the Magic Primer since I use ND Glow foundation. The product has a non-tacky gel-like consistency which blends and disappears into my skin, leaving it semi-matte. I like the fact that I don't feel a layer of product sitting on top of my skin, which is what I get after applying the MUFE Step 1 Equalizer primer.
The Magic Primer pairs well with my ND Glow foundation and the oil control just seems better. I have less break-through shine as the day goes on + use less blotting papers to dab any hint of shine away.
This is a similar product to the Kevyn Aucoin Primed Skin Developer (Normal to Oily skin types) in terms of gel-like texture, consistency and oil control. If I do use my KA SSE foundation, I get excellent oil control by first applying the Magic Primer then using a blend of the SSE foundation mixed with its Primed Skin Developer.
Thorough enjoying my Natasha Denona products :)
I tried this product because I am a greaseball, oily/combination skin. It just did not work for me I was way too shiny after wearing it for maybe 2-3 hours. Save your money if you are a shinny shinny face like my self :)
Feel good on the skin but doesn't do a good job at controlling my oily t-zone. I get oily pretty quickly while using this primer. I don't think I will purchase it again because it's way too expensive for it's so so performance.
I have looked for a way to hold my makeup longer than two seconds.....and I have (hold the presses)....found the PERFECT PERFECT product. I have Nicole Kidman skin....fair beyond the sea........which means sunscreen every time I look at the sun......at times I have felt like an oil slick....not any more. I put my sunscreen on...then this...then foundation...blah...blah.....blah.....and I am smooth as silk.....without ANY ANY shine.......all day long. I'm not kidding people when I say that this stuff keeps your makeup from not budging.......all day long. It's taken me about 3,000 years to find this wonderful product.....and,now, I will not go a day without it......... If you want your makeup to stay put and to remain as vibrant as the first moments when it's perfection......then you really need to buy this stuff!!!!!!!
I have tried to highend to drugstore and finally I have found my holy grail it keeps my oils in check my pores minimal from am to pm invest in this primer you won't regret it! I have combo skin.
I use it on top of my face cream before the foundation. Flawless skin after the application. The mat look last for hours . I recommend it .especially good in the summer . It feels like a light serum . There is a protective cap for traveling
Omg what's not to love about this primer, it's a little on the expensive but totally worth it. It leaves my skin looking and feeling smooth and semi matte. I have to reorder this. I apply this first and then another mattifying primer on top and leaves me with a perfect finish, that most of the time I don't use a setting spray or powder.
This product is not effective and wasn't pleasant to use. I bought mine at Sephora at the same time I bought her Glow foundation. Day one, I wore the Glow foundation with Hourglass mineral veil as my primer, plus setting spray and multiple setting powders. Got pretty oily within 4-6 hours and had to oil blot three times in my 12 hour day. Day two, I wore the Glow foundation with this primer thinking they're meant to go together so it might keep my oil better at bay and prevent the foundation from sliding off (all the other steps / products were the same to day one). This primer is very tacky. Extremely tacky. It's clear and sticky but not very silicone-y or blurring. I thought maybe that would help it to grip onto the foundation, but I actually think it might have been worse than it was on day one - I was a total oil slick in two hours, like I've never seen before. My face isn't that oily with NO makeup. For this price, it just doesn't seem remotely worth it. I would prefer something blurring or something with sunscreen....
I didn't like at all did nothing special definitely did not help with my oily skin I still prefer my UD self adjusting primer, dr Brandt poreless or porefessional by benefit over this not worth the price in my opinion
