This product did absolutely nothing for my oily skin. Not only did it not mattifying my skin, but it did not help my makeup stay on longer,either. This has a nice consistency, but is a strange dark orange color. I think Rimmel tried to create a product similar to Dr. Brandt's Pores No More.-- But they failed miserably! It actually seemed as though the first areas of foundation to wear off were the ones I had applied this primer to. Do not waste your money!
This was the first primer I ever purchased, a while back. I wasn't surprised that it came in one color, but when I took it home and tried it, I was definitely surprised that it was bright orange. It applies more sheer, but if you are fair skinned, it will more than likely change your foundation's color. If you are looking for an inexpensive primer, I SWEAR by Monistat's Chafing Relief Powder Gel. It is the same, if not cheaper, price than this primer, and it is equally comparable to Smashbox Photo Finish.
This is the first primer I've tried, and I was disappointed when I opened this product at home and discovered it was bright orange. The product color disappears and actually evens out my skin tone a bit, so I apply less foundation, but only if I apply just the right amount. Too much and the color cuts through my makeup and looks ridiculous, and I hate spending extra time applying little by little so I don't look like an Oompa Loompa. I will definitely be finding a clear primer for my next purchase.
I'm prone to breakouts from makeup, but this doesn't seem to aggravate my skin like other acne-prone reviewers. It diminishes the look of the pores on my cheeks and nose, gives my skin a satiny feel that helps my concealer and foundation glide on smoothly, and seems to cut down on shine during the day. You get more for the price than other drugstore brands I've seen...if only it wasn't orange!
This was my very first primer that I've ever bought. I love how it gives me a very smooth finish prior to applying my foundation and makes my makeup last longer. However, I hate the fact that this primer is orange. Since I have very fair skin, it shows up even and interferes with the color of my foundation. I have a warm undertone and makes it look like I'm applying a foundation with the wrong color although my foundation matches my skin tone without the primer. I wish they could've just made the color white or translucent since I love the finish and the staying power.
I just finished up a tube of the Rimmel Fix and Perfect Foundation Primer, so here's my 2 cents. I have medium, oily/combination skin that's sensitve & acne-prone. I put this on after I moisturize my skin & let it sit for couple of minutes before I put on my foundation. I don't use same foundation everyday & I use both powder & liquid formulation. This product seems to prime my face well for different foundation formulation & makes it last longer. As most of you are already aware, this primer does have apricot-y, orange-y color straight out of the tube, but it does disappear once applied. (Now having said that, I can't speak for ladies with really fair complexion.) When Rimmel first put this primer out on the market, this was one of the very few if not only drugstore foundation primer available. That has all changed recently as companies like L'oreal & Revlon offers them & has gotten popular amongst us, beauty addicts. Personally, I haven't tried any other drugstore foundation primers so I can't really compare. However, I used to use Laura Mercier foundation primer & I actually prefer Rimmel over Laura Mercier. One thing to keep in mind when using this primer is that little goes a long way, so don't over do it. It's easy to over apply primers because it disappears, but if you apply too much it will make your skin oilier. This product is inexpensive & readily available, so give it try if you haven't already. I'd recommend it & will most definitely repurchase it for myself. You can often find it on sale or double packaged w/ a Rimmel foundation so you can get a good deal on it if you keep your eyes open. Happy trying! continued >>
This is the first time ever I've tried a primer. I absolutely love the price and see the difference that this primer has made on my foundation compared to putting foundation on bare skin. It totally prevents my foundation from moving and lengthens out my time before I have to blot and touch up with powder. I've been using it for about a week now and has not caused any breakouts. The orange tinge blends right into my skin. But then again I have a tan complexion. I will definatley repurchase again!
D: this should fall down a well the orange left my red cheeks even redder that usual it didnt make my pores look any bigger nor did help my makeup stay on longer
This is an ok product. It helps the makeup last longer but this orange liquid does make my face darker.
After using it for awhile, i actually do love this. it doesnt make my face greasy unlike maybelline's primer. this and revlon colorstay foundation is the perfect mix.
I love this primer. Like many who have written about this, I was a little put off by the orange-ish tint and thickness of it. However, after blending it in, the color disappears and you are left with a smooth finish to your complexion that stays on ALL DAY. I used this with Chanel Double Perfection Compact, and it worked well together. It worked so well, I had people asking me what I had recently changed in my make-up regimen because my skin looked so nice.
This product has silicone in it so I would be wary if you are prone to breakouts. Also, I wasn't impressed with the packaging because it becomes difficult to squeeze when it's towards the bottom, and if you're not careful it can get messy and waste a lot of it.
I have used this primer for about 4 months & although it works wonderfully sadly its not for me. Fix & perfect keeps my skin oil free, my foundation applies smoothly & the peach tone evens out my complexion. However, I react badly to the silicone in this product & get a pimple every time I use it no matter how well I cleanse (I'm not prone to breakouts & didn't even have them as a teen). Overall its a good product especially for the price as long & silicones don't upset your skin. continued >>
