I'm unsure of why this product stopped workjing for me. For years I used it as a primer and my mineral makeup foundation would stay put and last for hours on end while this product concealed my pores. The problem I have now is that it's cakey upon application, thus when you apply your makeup over it, all you see is smeared product and white messiness. (I use invisible bright since I'm SUPER pale.) Anyway, had I written this review when it was still working for me it would be a different story. I don't think it has to do with the product being old either since I have purchased the new ones and don't let them spoil. II'll give it two out of five, but I unfortunately would not buy again.
If youíve got very oily skin and your make up slides by noon, youíll need this. Itís increases wear time and it reduces the appearance of pores. Just a tiny dot suffices
Iíve been on the Invisible Bright sample for a week now. But Iím a bit hesitant about buying the full size tube. While Iím happy that it delivers what itís supposed to, im not quite liking the finish look. Its a VERY matte finish and it doesnít make my foundation go on smoothly.
And I feel this can be a bit drying. Wouldn't recommend to normal or dry skinned ladies.
It works really well for my oily eyelids and tzone, in particular for hot and humid climate in Indonesia. It keeps my eyeliner from being smudged. You put in on before and after makeup
This product is a life saver in humid Ohio summers...though I often use it year round since I have quite oily skin on my forehead and tip of my nose. Just keep it away from your hairline and eyebrows or it will leave a powdery residue. You only need a tiny bit, so a tube of it lasts a really long time. It leaves your forehead with a smooth, porcelain finish.
I've tried all manner of pore hiding & mattifying primers and whilst some would hide the pores, and some would stop the grease, none before this did both. I use it only on and around my nose, chin & forehead (I learned the hard way not to put it on dryer bits) and I still look pretty OK several hours later, which for someone with the degree of greasyness I have on my tzone is a spectacular result!
Looking at the mixed reviews, and having ended up with flaky cheeks after slapping it all over, I think it is best suited to those who have real grease issues.
This is my second time buying this product. I LOVE it and I think it's great for oily skin. I've battled with oily skin and have tried many products including Mac Prep & Prime, and PoreFessional but this is by far the best one i've had but if you have dry skin I would't recommend this product. This product gives your face sort of a matte look which is perfect for my oily T-Zone.
I don't know why or how but this works!
Weird it gets such mixed reviews.
It works for me that's for sure!!
I have d shade 8 golden neutral. Its just an ok prouduct. Light - medium coverage. It gives a matte finish. And it dries out fast so need to work fast in application. There s nothng i love in ds foundation. But neither did it it giv me any break out or any skin irritation. But it doesnt do anythng as a pore refiner. I can stil c my pores after application.
I bought this product because of its amazing reviews but don't let that fool you. Try the product first still, a mistake I made $100 later was not trying it first. I know everyone reacts differently to products but my experience was it dried out my skin and made it look very flakey when I brushed over my powder. I admit it refined my pores but it gave me another problem.
This is a nifty little product. You only need the smallest amount. I use this over my foundation just on my nose and tops of cheeks. I can break out from many products and have had no problems with this gem.
