I actually really liked this primer. I've tried Almay (STAY AWAY), Nivea (just okay) and Baby Skin (too slippery) and this primer is just perfect. I don't really have any wrinkles so I can't speak to that, but I will say this primer minimized my pores and made my skin feel like silk. I waited five minutes before applying foundation with a damp sponge and it applied like a dream. No settling into my smile lines or any dry patches. This stuff is cheap too, it's only $8 at the WalMart I work at. I've also ordered the ELF mineral infused primer to try, but for now this is the one I'm reaching for every time!
Another useless product to me.
Did nothing for my makeup or my skin.
Pretty good primer, it is very smooth and makes your face very soft. My makeup went on much smoother.
Went to Walmart to get another bottle of Revlon Miracle Blur located in the face lotion/cleanser area because I liked the primer effect but did not like the price (even at Walmart). Came across the Hard Candy Skin Perfecting Primer while in the cosmetics area, read the instructions, and LOVED the price. Bought it, tried it and LOVE it!
After cleansing my face, I apply this primer and allow it to set per the instructions (I give it about 3 minutes). My skin feels smoother instantly and my foundation goes on very nicely. At the end of the day in hot, humid weather, my make up still looks fresh and matte! It also still feels smooth without being oily. For me, the Hard Candy Skin Perfecting Primer works better than Miracle Blur and is better for my budget. At least I don't have to be broke to stay lookin beaufiful all day!
Pretty decent primer, silicone feeling and you only need a drop for the entire face. Hasn't broken me out, and definitely prevents my makeup from oxidizing or fading. In winter this helps protect my dry skin too! If you are on a budget and want to try a primer, this is good! I've been using this for 5 months everyday and the bottle is still 9/10th full (odd!). Would repurchase but I'm going to invest in more skin friendly primer next time. But definitely a great investment! (For dry and normal skins)
I love this primer. The texture is so amazing. I love how it feels. I almost just want to wear it because of the texture. It fills in my pores and fine lines and makeup stayed on a lot longer today so I will definitely be buying this again.
So I bought this product at Walmart for only $8 and I found that it made my skin feel and look very smooth. Product reduces the look of pores. I find that the product doesn't really control oil, but my face doesn't get that oily so it's not really a problem.The texture of this primer is a gel-like consistency, but dries to a matte finish. It feels very silky, which I love. I use about a pea-sized amount of this primer. This product says that it can be worn alone. In my opinion, there is no difference to the appearance of my skin if I were to wear the primer alone without foundation vs no primer (I have huge pores). This primer does not break me out, which is great! I would buy this product again!
-makes skin soft
-a little goes a long way
-no difference to appearance of skin if worn alone without foundation vs no primer
Greasy, doesn't correct my skin tone and it just doesn't feel right... Although this was my first time purchasing a primer but I think I know what "bad" is... I've never seen primers in this kind of consistency before. It hasn't broken me out or made my foundation worse but it definitely didn't improve it. I really feel bad reviewing this because I love the Hard Candy brand and this just...-sigh- don't buy it guys. 9$ does seem tempting but You can get better primers.
The first time I used this product, I thought I loved it. I finally found a drugstore product (walmart- $9) that would educe the visibility of my pore and keep me looking less oily. After washing my face that night, I realized I was SO wrong. Yes, it sort of kept my foundation on a little longer, but my face was so broken out! I looked like a 14 year old going through puberty after I washed this product off. And not just small pimples, but large cystic lumps all over my face. The silicone base had suffocated my face! I guess if you have hard as nails skin that wil never break out, sheer envy might work for you- but I ended up spending more money on quality products to cover up the damage left on my face after throwing sheer envy right into trash.
For the price this primer works so well! It hardly takes any at all (maybe less than a pea size amount) to get it all over your face. It controls oil and makes my LancÃ´me foundation last all during the day. Great product.
