I like this primer so much more than the much hyped Smashbox primer. It really locks my makeup in place and lasts all day. The texture is fine and it's not greasy, it absorbs easily and makes my makeup glide on.
It did keep my makeup lasting long but i dont't like the texture
it was more like a lotion so i will be trying something else
I had decided to go back to LM Oil Free foundation when BB Smooth Skin Foundation was discontinued. I have very sensitive skin that is prone to itching and discomfort with the wrong product and rather than try every new foundation out there I thought I would just use the LM again. When I did 5 or so yrs back I had a good experience with it. Anyways, it was the winter when I did this and even though I am oily I still need something that isn't too greasy to moisturize just a tad and helps the foundation to sit right. I can't remember what was wrong with what I was using but the last time I had used the LM primer it was the original version, I didn't realize there was an oil-free. The original burned my skin a bit but the SA promised this was formulated for sensitive skin and would help my foundation to last. She was right. It's a totally different product than the regular primer, milky and just enough moisture and really makes your makeup last longer. If you are oily like me, nothing keeps you from shining and having to blot. But when I use this with her oil-free or silk creme foundation, my makeup doesn't break up from my oil production, or settle into unflattering places, or disappear. Try a sample. Every product isn't for everyone but if you have any of the issues I have described this is worth a shot. I also have not experienced any breakouts with this product whatsoever.
I don't know exactly what made me have the worst break-out of my life, but I'm beginning to suspect this primer. I've used LM primer before and liked the way it made my foundation look. To be fair, I think I used the regular and not this oil-free.
I just can't see the purpose in this product. My skin looks the same whether I use it or not, and it may have broken me out. In the future, I'll skip this stuff.
Love this product, my skin stays fresh and matte all day
How I wish there were a maybe option! I don't know if I would buy this again. It is more of a lotion for oily skin than a primer. It doesn't really even out skin tone, like my favorite MAC prep + prime, but it does help foundation adhere well. Actually, I found out that by mixing this with a heavier coverage foundation, it helps application look more natural. Overall...eh.
Excellent for oily skin. Leaves a satiny, non-greasy finish that really makes my foundation last. Love it.
I've used this primer for the past two weeks, and it does not make me break out!!! (I can't use smashbox, for example). My liquid foundation goes on more smoothly and lasts a bit longer, but the primer does not seem to provide any oil control. There is a visible difference in the look of my makeup when I use this--it gives a much more 'airbrushed' appearance. I do need to touch up with powder about halfway through the day as this seems to make me shinier than without. Only a tiny amount of the primer is needed for my whole face, so the tube ought to last a long time. I'm on the fence about repurchasing, though, because I'd like a bit more in the way of oil control.
This product is a MOISTURISER (and a bad one at that) packaged as a primer. If you have even a tiny tendency to have oily skin, this product is guaranteed to leave you with a greasy mess an hour after application. The MAC primer is still my HG.
This is the worst primer I have ever owned. Others like MAC's and Philosophy's The Present make my skin feel silky and perfect my look. This one doesn't seem to do a thing for me. I reminds me of an oil free moisturizer not a primer. HATE IT.
