So far the best primer that I have used and I have tried them all. I use this and then Dr. Brandt's Pores no More on my nose and cheeks to minimize my pores for smoother application of my make-up. My current make-up of choice is Cargo's liquid foundation and I set this with their blu-ray powder for a beautiful, smooth complexion.
I purchased this primer because I needed a silicone free primer so that it wouldn't interfere with any pore minimizing product I use for my pores (generally pore minimizing products are choc full of silicones, and trying to put a silicone product on top of another silicone can sometimes cause problems like pilling or that the pore minimizing product just won't apply properly). This primer has some good for your skin ingredients in it which I think is a plus, it also did help my makeup stay on for longer then if I had gone without. It doesn't irritate my skin and it also has just the right balance of giving a bit of hydration so that my skin doesn't feel tight/dry but also doesn't cause my makeup to slip (I don't apply moisturiser before makeup since my skin can get very oily, if I apply moisturiser my makeup either won't apply properly or melts off rather quick, so I rely on whatever primer I use to give my skin some hydration instead). I only gave this product four stars because whilst it currently meets my needs its not something thats easily available I have to order it online.
HG! i have tried MANY primers, and i have hated all of them for one reason ro another, the Too Faced primed and poreless is the only one i used again and again, until i purchased this.
it is perfect, non greasy, doesnt make my pores completely dissapear, but once you put foundation on they are so small they are almost completely gone. i dont re-blot my foundation when i use this.
photographs look airbrshed!
the trick is, use a tiny amount on each section of your face, i even do my cheekbones and jawline seperatly, then let dry for a few minutes, the minimum i'd suggest is 2. do NOT use too much, i tested this and i will ball up with certain foundations even if you have let it dry. a little goes a very long way! this is on the pricey side, but the tube is huge and sicne you dont need a tremendous amount this should last you many months. i use this under all of my foundations from the very heavy, (kat von d, vichy dermablend) to the lighter (chanel vitalumiere, dior nude) with great results everytime.
