since i've been regularly wearing revlon colorstay, i haven't had much need for a primer (cheese unintended) but when i need one, this one does well.

* the peachy-pinky-orange tone is a little visually alarming but blends into my skin with no majorly noticeable effect - but also no "brightening" effect *for me) as some have been reporting here. however, for very pale persons, it might become a problem. i am ~nc20-25 right now and i don't find the color of this primer to affect it.
* makes skin feel soft and smooth (i.e., ready for foundation/ other).
* increases the wear of foundations and tinted moisturizers by ~2-3 hours MORE (than without) for me. i really don't understand why companies think it's wise to make a foundation that only lasts 2 hours. like, furrealz?! (maybelline, i'm sorry to call you out on this - but you make foundations that make my skin look great for the first hour and then i melt, boo.)
* i also now use it as a spot primer - like for eyeshadows and it does increase the length of wear for shadows a bit as well, but does not enhance the color & pigment of shadows like some other (creamier/ "oilier-feeling") specifically-for-eyeshadow primers do.

I use this after I put on my moisturizer, it's orangey in color but once you blend it in it disappears and blends into your skin. It leaves my face feeling soft and ready for foundation. I've had my tube for about 9 months and it's just now starting to run out so it does last a while and a little bit goes a long way. A dime sized amount is good enough for your whole face.

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PRODUCT! It makes my skin feel so smooth and even provides a little bit of coverage! I always get compliments on how soft my skin looks and feels when I wear this. If you are considering purchasing this, don't let the orangey color throw you off! It blends very well. It also makes my foundation (revlon colorstay) glide on smoothly and evenly!

Considering what this primer costs, it's a great product. It's always been hard for me to put down $40 for a luxury primer, since it's not something that I need to match to my skin and therefore test out at a department store counter of Sephora. While the color might be slightly alarming when you first see it (then again, so is Smashbox's green color-correcting primer), it disappears instantly on your skin. The texture is very nice, creamy and drying to a matte finish. I wouldn't say that it lasts ALL day, but when I put it under my Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, it helps evens out my skintone, keeps me non-shiny for hours, and also helps my other makeup stay in place. It's not a perfect product--I wouldn't say that it's a real competitor to Smashbox's line in providing a flawless base--but for what it does, it's dirt cheap and surprisingly effective.

I tried this based on reviews, but more because of the ingredient list. I do like the Monistat Chafing Gel as a primer, but I didn't care too much for the slippery feel. So for $7, I got this to try. First of all, it's not orange!!!! It's peach and I think it's peach-colored for a skin brightening effect. How I figured this out was when I first got it, I put in on my hand and noticed the "orange" didn't show up BUT the skin looked much brighter. So have no worries that your skin will look orange, for Pete's sake LOL (unless mayyyyyyyyyybe if you are ghostly white and even then I don't think it would show up). It did minimize my pores, making them almost non-existent. It also brightened my skin tone. What I really liked the most, though, was that it left a smooth, matte feel and finish to my face without a) being overly matte and dull, and 2) no silicone slippery feel which also sometimes gets a little shiny in the warmer weather. I put it on about noon today, for instance ... it is now 9:00 pm and my face has zero shine and also doesn't FEEL oily .. you know how you can look matte but when you touch your skin it feels gunky and greasy? Well none of that for me with this primer. I think when it gets colder and my skin is much drier, I might mix this with the Monistat to avoid too matte/dead a look (I'm a big mixer of everything LOL). I think the price is fabulous for the performance of the product and will definitely purchase again.

I've been on the search for a pore minimizer/primer but I haven't wanted to buy anything too expensive so I gave this product a shot. The color of it definitely makes you nervous but for my skin color (olive) it didn't give my face an orange tint. After using it for approximately 3 weeks I can say it did help minimize my pores and my face stayed oil free the whole day (I barely break out now). I also noticed my face seemed smoother after applying and my makeup looked a little more flawless as compared to when I don't wear it. I plan on purchasing a more expensive option to compare. If the results are the same I will stick to Rimmel's brand. One gripe I do have is, like others have noted, a pump would be ideal!

If you have sensitive skin this is NOT this product for you! It has a fragrance that is strong and other ingredients that gave me hives and tingling all over my face.
Even if you don't have sensitive skin if you are pale this is not good product because it has an orange color that mostly blends out but still leaves a slightly orange twinge to your face without fix anything as it claims.

I do like this product although i think there are a lot of better products out there. I also think that a pump would be more suitable than the tube.

The color is alarming at first but it goes on translucent (does not show on my skin). Sometime I will get the peeling effect however, meaning as I apply it rubs off in dry chucks. I also get that sometimes with high end primers. I am guessing it is due to lack of moisture. I wish it comes in color correction also. I have redness so I wish it has a green tint so it would even out my skin tone a bit also. As for more even skin tone I do see it and the appearance of pores are definitely diminished.

When I first looked at the color of the product I was scared, a terracotta orange. I thought I would have to return it, but after putting it on I couldn't see the tint anymore. I've tried other primers but all of them make my skin look flaky, not this one. Once I put it on I can hardly see my pores! Also it's super cheap. The only downside is the packaging. Sometimes I'll open it and a whole bunch will just leak out :[ Otherwise it's great!
