I have yet to dive into the realm of face primers, so I've been taking advantage of any free or 100 point samples of primers I can get from Sephora. I just got this the other day and while I haven't yet used it as an overall primer, I tested it for its pore covering abilities. My pores aren't very noticeable but my boyfriend's are MASSIVE. He was a good sport and let me test some of this on the side of his nose. They virtually disappeared! We were impressed. So if you have visible pores, give this a try! It seems worthwhile just for how effective it is for hiding pores. Will review it as a primer once I've tested it and others out for comparison; but right now, I am incredibly impressed.
I like this a lot. It does a really nice job as a primer and makes my skin feel so soft. It is great for small patches of dryness. It lasts all day for me in a dry and windy climate.
I purposely bought this to cover up my pores on my nose and on the sides. Works good on my pores after I apply BE foundation but as a primer, I would purchase a diff primer for it. I would just use this for my pores but not as a facial primer. I LOVE the softness and smoothness though!
GREAT! i bought it because it was pink and cute but it actually does an amazing job! creates a velvet vail in which is so easy to put foundation on! makes my makeup last longer.
I received a good size sample of this product at Sephora. While I haven't tried it on my entire face, I do use it as an eye primer and my eye makeup stays on all day. So I am very impressed with that and will buy it again for that purpose. The only reason I haven't used it all over is because primers always seem to make my already dry skin feel drier. I was also impressed that this primer has some good anti-aging ingredients in it (Vitamins and Retinol).
This does not hold my makeup on my skin and caused my combination skin to break out.
I really do like this product. My skin can be oily to dry depending on the season. It reminds me very much of philosophy's supernatural primer. I think I like philosophy's primer just a little more than this one, but this is a close runner up. Very smooth application and great consistancy for my skin.
I liked this primer but i didn't see a huge difference to my big pores. This primer is expensive in my opinion, and i didn't notice it making my make up last longer. I am disappointed as others have said it is effective.
This is a foundation primer that claims to minimize pores and it does that really well. It goes on smooth and allows my foundation to glide on smoothly and last all day. Even powder foundation lasts much longer with this primer. This primer has a thinner consistency than most other primers and it feels much lighter on the skin as well. You need so little of this primer so when I got a deluxe sample of it I was surprised that it lasted for almost two months and I wore it everyday. I think that this is really a great primer.
I can honestly apply this to my nose and inner cheeks(where I have noticable pores) and they are about 95% gone! I can only see them if I put my face right up to a mirror. With foundation on top my skin looks flawless. I also think it smooths out fine lines and makes my skin look more even toned and super soft. $30 is pricey but a little goes a long way so it's worth it, plus it really does what it claims. I only apply it where I need it daily, I never apply it to my whole face because I prefer to use as less product as I can on my skin. The tube is a cute pink color and it lasts a long time. This stuff is a must for me because I have a serious love for shimmer which makes pores look really bad, this primer solves that prob for me.
