PROS- controls oil- minimizes pores- extends wear of makeupCONS- hard to squeeze outCOMMENTS: This stuff is amazing. It really does what it says. The only con I have is how thick it is. It's so difficult to squeeze product out of the tube. It's going to become even more difficult once product starts to get used up. Other than that, I have no complaints. Follow the directions on how to use this and you shouldn't have any issues. I never rub this on. Pat it onto the skin and avoid any dry areas, working on one area at a time as it does set quickly. Make sure you still moisturize as this stuff is equivalent to using Milk of Magnesia and can be drying. Will repurchase.

This prime does work, it really does keep me matte for way longer than any of product but I hate how you have to prep this product and figure out a way to use it properly..you can't just smooth it on, you have to earn it up and dab it, make sure you're not putting to much. I like it but it's too time consuming, so I don't think I will purchase again.

The reason I gave this four stars was because it made my makeup look amazing on my skin, and really mattified my oily areas, but.... It is SOOOO drying and feels terrible. It also lasts only slightly longer than the Tarte Clean Slate Poreless Primer (my favorite primer) but feels terrible on the skin! It can make your makeup look a little patchy as well, if not blended perfectly.Not worth the price to me, but it's great for super oily gals for sure!

I have not tried a lot of primers, but I really like this one. I've been using this for several weeks now, which has given me enough time to figure out that you really have to be generous with the application of this primer. AND, you have to be pretty oily or it will dry you out. I only use this in my t-zone where I am oily (need blotting papers within 2-3 hours after make up application). I squeeze out about a pea size for my nose, another pea size for my chin and a little more than a pea size for my forehead. I do the 3 areas separately as it tends to dry down kind of quickly. I then use my Jane Iredale purepressed mineral foundation. Love the way it looks! I will continue using this :)

Ive been using this for just less than a week.I have an EXTREMELY oily nose... oil slick! So basically yes it works but its not a miracle product and it won't last all day and it works better with foundations on the drier side like colorstay etc.You can touch up over the top of your make up and that works well too.My application... The first time i used it i didn't use enough so oil basically came through pretty fast. I can tell if i have applied enough by whether or not i can see my pores or if they have been filled in by the primer... well you can still see your pores but they are like holes filled in.I find i have to put quite a bit on like a full plump pea that i rub between two finger tips and than pat onto my nose and side of nose. I think you have to work fast because i feel like it starts to dry as soon as it leaves the bottle. It stings my nose and surrounding skin, makes it feel tight and leaves a white cast.Also it gave me a pimple, I only get one pimple a month if that, but it also took it away the next time i used it.So really i shouldn't use this product because it obviously doesn't agree with my skin, or a least i should stick to putting it on top, but the pains of an oily nose and never lasting foundation is going to win and my skin is going to lose. Sorry skin.Im not too happy yet with how makeup goes on over it and I'm always a bit scared of rubbing it off when i apply foundation on top but I'm still learning with this product.I dont moisturise under it but like i said I'm still finding whats best for me with this primer.I only use this on my nose but i feel like I'm going to go through my bottle a lot faster than what everyone else does? since my bottle already feels very used.It is expensive obviously but if you know the pain of the oil you'll spend the dollars if your guaranteed a good result.:)

Most amazing primer for oily skin! But you have to make sure your skin is very very oily or it will be to harsh for your skin. Hence why I think some people have scored it lower. If you are extremely oily try it and you will not be disappointed. Just make sure to pat it in when applying.

I like this primer but I find it very tricky to use and it sets really fast and so I have been searching for a primer that is mattifying but also smoothing and minimizes my pores and the Japonesque Velvet Touch Primer is really amazing so if you find this too drying or too mattifying then definitely try out the Japonese Velvet Touch Primer instead. It keeps me matte without looking flat or dry. It's alot easier to blend and work with and it's less expensive than the Becca one.

AWESOME SAUCE! As others have mentioned, application method is key!! My skin is oily all over, especially in summer Houston, TX heat. It's been 95+ every single day all summer. Now that I have perfected application (which is super easy now that I know the product), this prevents my makeup from moving all day, creates a semi-matte finish all day, does not irritate my skin or break me out, is light, and plays well with other products. It's very pricey but the bottle really does last a very long time as you don't need much to get the job done.I always moisturize first when I use this product. I let my moisturizer set, then dispense a small pea size amount on 1 finger tip, then rub gently between 4 fingers to make an even layer for application (pointer and middle finger, both hands) and quickly PRESS and DAB on to my face in spots where I know I will become an oil slick. I love this product and will never be without it. It will leave white marks if you use to much. Take it easy! Use a small surface area to apply (i.e., fingertips), apply an EVEN layer, and only one layer if you can! :-)

This product has a learning curve to it, but I FINALLY figured out how to use it and I absolutely love it. I should add that unless you have oily/very oily skin, this is not going to do anything for you. I have oily skin that borders on very oily in the summer, and this primer has been miraculous for keeping my makeup matte throughout the day. To use this, I use about half the size of a pea, rub it between my fingers, and lightly PAT (do. not. rub.) over my t-zone and cheeks, which are the oiliest part of my face. This method, paired with any foundations, helps keep my face matte for hours, and even at the end of the a hot and humid day in DC, my face is nowhere near the oil slick that it would be without this primer. I think the price is very reasonable for the amount I have to use and the amount that you get.

For very oily skin only.The bad reviews on here I think must be from people who's skin is not in the super oily category. My face is like an oil slick after an hour max.You need a small amount on the back of your hand and then press onto t-zone without rubbing. I have tried everything to keep the oil at bay and this is the ONLY product that's ever worked. Expensive but if you have truly oily skin it's worth it.
