I found it a waste of $9. I tried it when I first saw it @Target in November or October. I was excited b/c it was new & packaged nicely. Plus,I generally love Cover Girl products. I tried it w/its included sponge& w/my fingers. It felt greasy both times. I tried it before moisturizer & some days after moisturizer. It still felt greasy. It didn't help my liquid foundations apply much easier or fill in lines or really do anything much.It helped my foundations to hold on only moderately. I have mostly oily skin. I still found spots where my foundations had worn off,almost as though I hadn't applied it. I even tried it as a touch-up instead of powder, as the directions said I could do. It felt strange to dab the stuff on either way(hands or sponge) b/c of the heavy texture. There was no scent or color. Also, I didn't notice any extra blemishes while I used it. I even hit pan during those two weeks. I have no use for TruMagic but have found a lower-priced primer from WalMart by Hard Candy. It's the Sheer Envy Matte primer in a baby blue tube. It's only $6-8, too! I have a review about it, also.

I thought this would be a great product for smoothing skin and blending my make up better. Instead I break out in a red itchy rash. I don't know what's in it that I'm allergic to but my face feels and looks sunburned. My money is wasted! I would not recommend this product to anyone with sensitive skin.

I didn't care for this at all! It feels slick and greasy and the consistency reminds me of a glue stick kids use. I also don't feel like it helped the appearance of my skin at all, it didn't mix well with foundation and either I use too little and notice nothing but a slimy feeling or I use too much and it clumps like paste. The packing is terrible bc it instantly gets dirty with face make up. I just feel like I'm putting something dirty on my face. I feel like this is basically like maybellines baby skin instant pore eraser but in a solid form. SOLID FAIL. I like maybellines a whole lot better!

I ran out of my primer - I'd been using Baby Skin (but was pretty so-so for me) and needed a replacement fast. I decided to give this a shot and I LOVE it. My skin is super soft under make-up and it looks really healthy and glowy, but not shiny. I've only tried it under make-up, not for touch ups throughout the day. Not sure I'd love it so much for that.

Love this stuff. One side of my face has really big pores. Go figure. I apply to both sides and my pores are diminished. I apply first to the side with the big pores and then whatever is left goes on the other side. I apply under my foundation, but if I forget I apply over my foundation. You have to apply lightly and just pat it on. Swipe your sponge lightly in product then pat lightly on skin

I love love love this product. Makes my face feel smooth and soft and make up is easier to apply. It makes my skin not look oily as well. I like to put it on under my foundation and powder then dab it on top, makes my skin look flawless and it's just. I love it.

I love Mally...lol Not to be totally random, but I love her and her products, but they don't love me. Everything I've tried has broken me out or I've been allergic to or something--just hugely disappointing for me because everything seems so cutting-edge and well thought out...Anyways, that brings me to this... I wanted to try her poreless perfection thingy...but based on our hate/hate relationship thus far, I didn't dare spend that kinda money for something I would most likely wind up hating....and so I found this Tru Magic --which is basically like a generic drugstore knock-off.I'd read all the neg reviews on Mally's and even this, but I totally disagree IMHO. For me, this stuff is magic!!! I'd read about applying it lightly--gently very gently, swipe the sponge over the product...don't go digging! And **pat** onto your face--this is very important! Do NOT wipe, swipe or in any way dislodge your makeup--just gently pat it on. I normally wear a bb cream and set with powder, so I pat this stuff on later in the day to control shine(it's super super humid here right now). It's good at refresing makeup without making you look cakey like powder does. And it tones down shine without making you look matte-dead.I have't tried it *in place of powder*, just as a touchup product. I'm not sure I'm ready, what with the humid weather here--I still like a nice setting powder. Maybe in the winter I'll use this in place of setting powder... But for touchups during the day, it's awesome!! My only nitpicks are that the case is ginormous!! It's like the size of 3 regular powder compacts. It's difficult to fit into a makeup bag so it winds up just floating around my purse or sitting on my desk. Also, the sponge just sits in the product all day til you use it. I'd prefer to put the sponge in another compartment between uses--like with most compact foundations. And since the case is ginormous anyways, why not give a sponge compartment on the bottom? Kinda cheapo if you ask me...Besides those two points, this is an awesome awesome product!! And super cheaper than Mally (sorry, love:( lol) One last thing, my skin is very dry, so this stuff is a godsend...I don't know how well it would work for very oily types...I do know that us dry-skinned girls can use this and be thrilled that it doesn't emphasize any flakes.Overall, loving this product and will be buying it again(if I ever run out lol).

I purchased the TruMagic Skin Perfector in 100 (clear) and the product was a major disappointment based on it's intended use. Some of it's highlighted claims are "controls shine, non-greasy, soft smooth finish, apply throughout the day for quick toughups, just like a pressed powder."I've tried various applications: dry and wet use with the included round sponge, dry and wet with a makeup wedge, and with my fingertips. I tried swiping it on in a downward motion, patting it on, and buffing it on. I tried it under liquid makeup and over it. Each time, when makeup is put on top of the mattifier it emphasizes pores or any textured patches of skin. It feels great going on, true to "soft and smooth" because it's very slippery, so you think that makeup aplication will be smooth. But as soon as anything is applied on top, it clings and bunches up on any imperfections. Applied over foundation, it picks up and moves the products around for a more uneven finish so I would not say touchups are quick, nor does it perform like a pressed powder. I didnot even wear the product more than 5 minutes because my makeup looked so bad I had to remove it.So yes, the TruMagic Perfector does mattify, but it can not be worn with a makeup base without degrading the application process. The only uses that this product excels at is as a stand-alone perfector/mattifier without any other makeup product or, as I found by trial and error, as a lip product base to smooth lip texture, or to make application of dried out or matte formulas very easy and smooth, and it helps form a barrier to keep lips from chapping from matte products. However, because I did not purchase the product with that intent and because it's stated function falls short of it's claim, I would NOT repurchase it. I would NOT reccommend it. And I am going to try to return it.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~As is, if this product was remarketed as a lip smoothing base and as a result came in more compact packaging with the same product amount for the price, I would enjoy it more.Used as an all over face product, I wish that the packaging had stated how it performed under mineral, powder, liquid, and cream foundations, or at least gave instuctions on the "best applied by..." and "best used wth ____ type products." I would also like if the clear base was packaged with a black or dark sponge so that you might be able to see at some of what you are applying.

Disappointing. I had hoped for a solid prodict (as in performance, not consistencey) that would help matify and blur pores. This is not that. The pros are that it does helep mattify somewhat - wait - that's the only pro. The cons: price too high for performance, the product is hard to get out of the pan - it just slides around, I can see by the staining on the product that it is removing some of my makeup, it doesn't keep me matte for more than an hour. Honestly blotting papers and powder do better than this.

I loves it but the trick is to use it when your sskin starts to get oily. Put it on with your makeup on. Works wonders for me and keeps my face oil free for hours!!
