This is a fantastic product. If you wear mineral makeup, this is a MUST!! It makes the product last all day, literally. Large pores appear smaller. The 'brassiness' of mineral makeup is toned down drastically. When using the primer with the various color tints (redness, brown spots), the primer is all that's needed (if skin is clear), with a little powder over it.

I absolutely love this primer. I had it in my drawer for a long time w/o using because I was not applying it correctly and therefore it was coming off my face when I applied foundation. Now that I am a bit more experienced with makeup application, I realized I never let it set before applying my foundation. So I tried it again, this time letting it set and the results were amazing.I've used this with mineral foundation, and the mineral foundation looks smoother than ever! Im wearing this combo now!I've also used it on my under eyes as well in combination with the Amazing Cosmetics 'Amazing' concealer and it is the one true comination I've found that prevents the concealer from caking, and still covers my deep dark cirlces. The primer fills in the wrinkles under the eyes which prevents the concealer from seeping into them and caking. The trick is to 'pat' on the concealer with a concealer brush, not paint it on. If you paint it on, you will remove the primer from the wrinkles and it will cake. Took me a few tries to perfect this combination, but I'm so happy I gave it a chance!

I finally bought this and it made my skin look smooth and flawless. I love this stuff. It really does make my makeup last longer then it would considering that I have oily skin and I use lots of the Neutragena oil blotters. It's funny cause I was quiet skeptical that it would break me out but it actually made my skin softer and brighter. :) My mom also used it and she loves it! She's 48 and I think it made her little wrinkle lines less visible. The only thing I mind is that it's a bit pricey so I use it for special occasions only.

I use this in the green to neutralize redness. I used the plain one first and wasn't crazy about it. However, using the green, I notice on days that I skip it or just forget while running around getting ready in the morning. This is definitely one that I like and continue to use and repurchase.

I use this on women every time I try any make-up on them at work. I received a travel-size for free and was finally able to use it on myself. At first I was afraid that it might break out my skin, but it hasn't. My face looks better. As I use it more and more my laugh lines show less, and my pores instantly appear smaller. It does what I wanted and keeps my mineral makeup on. I have very dry, sensitive skin and this makes it even softer. I really like this and will purchase.

I agree with another reviewer that said this product made my face smooth and soft but I didn't notice much else. I really wanted this to work as I spent $36+ for it & had heard all kinds of great stuff. Tried it for about 3 or 4 days - BROKE ME OUT. I did use moisturizer first, I did everything right as far as I know. I used one pump for my whole face, smoothed it on. Waited about 2 - 3 minutes for it to dry/settle. I have dry skin, would that be the problem? It kinda felt like it dried it out more & it claims to help your foundation stay longer b/c of the natural oil absorbing effects, so maybe that was it. Don't recommend it if you have dry-ish skin. Too bad I bought the whole bottle. >:(

I'm still on the fence about this product. I bought the small size from Sephora about 2 months ago and have been using it faithfully every day since. I've used it over moisturizers, and just by itself with my Bare Escentuals Foundation, but the results seem to be the same. You should only use a small dab on each portion of your face; more and it'll start to flake off and make your makeup smudgy. But I have extremely oily skin (30 minutes after I apply my makeup, I have to apply powder b/c of the shine!) with acne-prone leanings, and huge pores. Right after I apply this, it seems to fill in my pores and make my skin softer and smoother, but it really doesn't seem to hold up throughout the day. Like I said, shortly after putting makeup on I'm blotting and powdering! I think my skin does look atinybit better with it (it's not as oil-slicky as it might be), but it's not the miracle product people seem to tout it as.

This product smoothed and perfected skin, as well as filled in fine lines and pores for a flawless finish by giving my face a matte pearlish look. Additionally, my face was not irritated or broke out. Still I have mixed feelings.
