this primer made all foundation light and easy to be glided on . it makes your face looks like a doll. too bad it's doesn't have spf
update: despite that it looks really good on face, it's drying for me, i guess it's good for oilier skin, it went back to sephora.
I love that this product is oil free. A lot of times our oily skin girls are afraid of putting too much on their faces, but with this we don't have to worry about it adding extra shine! This smoothes over fine lines/large pores/scars creating a perfect canvas to apply your foundation/powder or concealer. It's slightly expensive for $43 US...but one pump of the pretty frosted bottle is enough for your whole face.
I hate the extra product to apply...but I just bought this and I LOVE it! It provides the application of your foundation to deliver in a smooth beautiful consistency. The wear time is wonderful! Try it! It's aplication is easy and the bottle is wonderful too. The liquid is clear and does not add layers to your foundation..meaning it does not make your foundation any heavier!
I gave this an overall rating of 4, it's very good, but I've used one thats been better so a 4 was appropiate. That's not to say there's anything wrong with it. It works really well, it's exceptionally smooth when applying, and makes foundation last longer, go on smoother and look more perfect. I always find though, that it stays 'wet' when you apply it for a bit too long, it doesn't dry straight away, so you need time to let it sink in first (I don't know if primers are designed to sink in, but you know what I mean, it seems to sit on top of the skin and tends to get mixed in with a powder foundation if you don't give it time to set). I enjoy using this, the pump applicator is superb, and never clogs, 1-2 pumps is plenty for you face and the upper part of your nexk ( which I always apply foundation to, to ensure I get no demarcation line). I love how smooth this makes my foundation, and I notice it lasts longer when I use this. definitely will be buying this again, it'll be part of my permanent make-up kit now.
This is an oil-free, non irritating primer that creates a smooth, radiant, line free and long-lasting effect under makeup (especially gorgeous with Lancome's recently reformulated Absolue Cream). The primer's proprietary ingredient Elasto-Smooth™ refines skin’s texture and diffuses light to visibly reduce imperfections with a gorgeous satin finish (niether matte nor shiny). This primer definitely works to help makeup glide on more easily and flawlessly. For my very dry, rosacea prone skin, it's working perfectly over serum and moisturizer as it locks in the hydrating effect of those products and keeps foundation from sinking into the skin.... giving a radiant, flawless and air-brushed look all day. This formula is similar in texture to Smashbox PhotoFinish and Armani Masters, but I think this newer, state of the art formulation is even better than either of those. The only thing this doesn't have is sunscreen (which may be part of why it's so gentle on sensitive skin) but my foundation has SPF 20 so that's not an issue for me. I try tons of primers and this one is a TOP new favorite!
