They used to sell this in a grey squeeze tube type bottle (amazing formula) and now they sell it in a tall white pump bottle (terrible) they call it the same thing but between the two packaging's they changed their formula and the new stuff sucks. It smells funny doesnt hold back any shine whatsoever and is way too expensive for what it is. Save your money.
Not really sure what I was thinking when I bought this primer. I guess I only bought it since it was $5. I prefer a primer that fills my pores and brightens my complexion. This didn't do that for me. I will not repurchase.
This did not do much for me other than cause my skin to break out. Did not help my makeup to stay on.
I've been using monistat chafing gel as my primer for about 2 yrs. It covers my pores but I sweat so bad and it makes my oil shine through that it doesnt help much with that. I bought this on clearance for five bucks and love it! It def doesnt feel like a silicone primer, i get that it is kind of sticky when u first put it on but that sticky dries fast and all the oil along with it! My fav thing is it takes away any signs of flakieness under my foundation. U know where it looks like u need exfoliate but u did, thats been a prob for yrs and this primer fixes it completely. I still wear monistat over my cheeks where the pores are the worst over this primer. I have no idea how much this is normaly but ill def repurchase, im bout out and its lasted about 6 months.
Got this on sale for $5, so worth it. I wore the primer under just a little powder and it wore well all day. Would I pay full price? No. The scent is a little strong for me as well, this is why I could not give a full 5. Even after 5 minutes the scent was lingering. Kinda like spraying perfume on your face. Feel free to use your imagination here...
I have never really been too impressed with Sephora makeup products (aside from lipgloss), yet for some reason I continue to buy them. I was in desperate need of a primer when I bought this, and my local Sephora was out of my favourite product, so I got this as a cheaper alternative. First of all, this product is EXTREMELY sticky to the point where it was pulling hairs out of my brush. I ignored this though, and continued to use it. Also, my face is pretty oily around mt T-Zone so I was hoping this would help. NOPE, nothing. I was still oily 2 hours later. Oh well, I dont know what I was expecting. Overall, although I want to, I don't recommend this product at all. :(
Pricey, but I still like it...oil came out in about 7-8 hours.
It makes my skin really soft, smooth and matte after applying.
probably won't be repurchasing when I run out (which will be in a year or more since I don't have a need to use this much).
There's nothing "anti-shine" about this. Shine breaks through within a couple hours.
I have been using this for many years and I absolutely love it! I apply this on top of my moisturiser, then concealer if needed, MAC Blot powder and that's me. I get zero shine for 3 hours, then need a little touch up during lunch time... which I can handle. I don't know how this works under foundation as I don't wear any but if you just use powder, this is the product for you. I buy them in lots of three because the nearest Sephora from me is cca 60 miles :) Worth every penny!
I bought this product expecting that my makeup would stay on all day and my face would have no oil for 8 hours (that's what the package says!). This product did the exact opposite. My face got even more oily and in addition, I started to break out! I finally got rid of my acne and now I had four large blemishes on my face as a result of using this product for only two days! My skin is much better off without it.
