Although this isn't a fantastic product I have to say that when applied correctly, (warning: do not slather this on! It will definitely make your makeup (and anything else you apply over it) ball up and become glue-like in consistency) it does a fine job of mattifying. Of course, it doesn't compare to MAC Prep+Prime, but it's decently priced, and good in a pinch.

As other users have noted, this product is an OK mattifier on its own but as a makeup base it's ridiculously bad. Any liquid foundation I put on top of this slipped right off and kind of rubbed into flakes- totally nasty!!! I gave this to my sister and obviously will never buy again! Slightly disappointed though cause in general I really like No.7 products from Boots........

I would agree 100% with the other reveiw. It works well in keeping away the shine however the texture has no slip. It is like a dry paste instead of a silky gel so it is heard to spread all over the face. Also I used this under my BE foundation and the mu around my nose disappeared & seperated. I would not buy again.

I found this primer worked well on its own, meaning that it eliminated shine. I did find it a bit sticky, and it has a glue-like texture (as opposed to a silky, smooth texture). It did not work well when I put foundation over it, because the foundation would not smooth evenly, and in some spots wouldn't even adhere to my face! I tried a tinted moisturizer, and again, it didn't work. I also think it made my skin break out, especially around my hairline, which hardly ever happens to me. The packaging is sleek and cute, and I really wanted to like this! I picked this up at Target for about $9.
