I heard very good things about this primer. To me though I didn't really see a difference in its quality. I feel like Smashbox primers are much better. I also feel they have better packaging that makes it easier to dispense the product. The product is very smooth feeling - very light. I felt like it was more moisturizer then primer. I felt like it didn't make my makeup go on any more smoothly though. Really disappointed with it. I returned it to Sephora.
I did not care for this product. For one, I can't stand the smell (old lady). Second, I find the consistency to be too watery for my taste. I guess I am just used to my Smashbox. I do find that it makes my makeup stay all day, but it does leave little foundation "clumps" on my face throughout the day that I've got to rub back into my skin. And, I find that it makes me look even oilier than usual - no good. I will not repurchase.
Ok, not sure about this one. My first foray into face primers so I can't compare it with other brands. It creates a smooth base for foundation, certainly, but I'm really not sure whether it makes it last any longer or look any better on my face. I also feel as though I'm wearing a mask when I wear this under foundation. It's good for nights out but I wouldn't want to wear it all day every day. Also, it's frickin expensive. Think I paid almost £30 for it. As I usually wear mmu now think I'll go for a less expensive primer next time. Doubt I'll repurchase.
don't understand why this famous product got so low rating. It is the BEST primer I have ever used. Price ($30 for 50 ML) is reasonable compare with Armani, BECCA, bobbi brown those brand. make me face so smooth and got prepared for liquid foundation.It really make a difference! I can use less foundation and sill still look good.never block my pores, if have spf will be better!
First time I've ever used primer. This product did make my makeup last longer, however, made me break out. The tradeoff is so not worth it, I'd rather stick with no primer.
This primer didn't really do much for me. With all the hype and the very high price for this, I thought it would do something dramatic. In my opinion, the consistency is very wet, and I prefer something more of a creamy texture. It is easy to apply on the face, and yes, my face felt smooth, but it was somewhat sticky to the touch. Application of foundation was easy too. I didn't really see anything special in terms of foundation wear. Luckily, I only tried a sample of this!
I generally switch between using a tinted moisturizer with no primer, or my Bare Escentuals foundation with either Smashbox Photo Finish, Monistat Chafing Gel (best bargain ever!), and this. As far as primers go, I do like this one. It seems to give my makeup great "staying power" and at the end of the day, my face still looks fresh. However, it isn't as mattifying as the Monistat or the Smashbox. It applies more like a lotiony-gel and I do find that I get shiny within a couple of hours, same as I do when I skip primer altogether. I like this primer, and it is great for days when my skin feels more dry, but during the Texas summer when I need something more mattifying/oil absorbing, I reach for the Monistat gel. I really like this primer, but I would only recommend it for normal skin, or skin with a tendency to be dry. If your skin is at all oily, you won't like this. I will probably repurchase.
This is 'meh' for me. I got this from a friend who had purchased the flawless face kit. I love Laura Mercier TM and frequently use Nude and/or Sand, but I'm not really impressed with this. I didn't find it as greasy as others did in the reviews, but I did not see any huge difference when applied under makeup either. Didn't help the staying power. Overall, its an expensive and unnecessary primer.
This is pretty ok. I got it in the Flawless Face kit from Sephora. It is a bit heavy and greasy, but it does sink into the skin. I didn't notice that it held makeup any better and it did seem to clog my pores. I do like this primer better than Smashbox.
I have very oily skin, bought this stuff since it is so raved about to wear before my foundation application, complete garbage, i am still in search of my hg primer, why is this so hard!Edit: I have since repurchased this primer not that my skin has changed and not being oily as it once was and this stuff is great. Just as a reviewer mentioned it does make the foundation or whatever product you would be applying afterward stay put and stick like glue. I find it works well with everything i have used so far and especially laura's tinted moisturizer. Unlike mac's prep and prime, this has no sparkles and unlike clarins primer this one is more silky and allows foundation to glide on smoothly. Will repurchase.
