This is a great primer. This has a nice light consistency and my skin looks smooth and poreless after using this- practically flawless. The pump packaging is very nice as well. New HG primer.
Good buy sparkly non performing MAC Prep and Prime Primer, Hello Revlon Photoready!
This stuff is amazeballz keeps my oily Tzone at bay at least till 4pm with out touch ups or powdering, no grotty sparkles and leaves skin with a lovely satin finish, this has officially replaced my 3 product routine of smashbox anti shine on my nose chin and forehead, benefit porefessional on cheeks and prep and prime over the smashbox. One product has finally controlled oils, minimized pores and kept my makeup looking fresh. And who would I thought its made by Revlon of all companies. I'm totes glad I gave this a punt and will absolutely buy again, even at the $30 this cost me at Priceline here in Sydney (which seems retarded we pay double the US price for all makeup products yet out dollor is way higher?!?)
I looooove this primer,controls my oil all day!
Wow, this product is amazing!!! It is by far the best primer I have ever used! It keeps my skin matte all day, makes my foundation last longer, and smooths out the surface of my skin!! The best part is, it is very affordable!!
This primer costs $30 in Australia!!!!!! Talk about highway robbery!!!!!!!!!
This primer is a staple in my makeup routine, I'm so glad I decided to try it. Before using this, I didn't really think it was necessary to use a primer, and I was terrified they would break out my sensitive skin. I recently started using L'Oreal True Match foundation again, which used to transfer onto everything and melt off my face. Now with this primer, it lasts 12 hours, and I only have to blot my oily t-zone once throughout the day. I've noticed my concealer and blush apply better and last longer as well. I also use it on my eyelids, which get very oily, and my eyeshadow lasts all day. This primer goes on so smooth, and instantly makes my skin look matte. I could probably wear it alone just for that wonderful matte look it instantly gives. I've been using it for 4 weeks now, and no breakouts. I love the classy bottle with pump it comes in, and there is no distinct scent that I can detect. It regularly costs about $11, so I recommend waiting for a sale and checking Revlon's website and the Sunday newspaper for coupons. But I do recommend it to EVERYONE.
I reluctantly tried this due to the reviews here. I have used it several times without noticing anything remarkable. That is until today when I applied my makeup in a hurry in between my two daughters interruptions. I realized after applying my foundation that I had forgot my primer. Did not have the luxury of time to re-do. My face looked fine with a fast glance in the mirror. A few hours later, I did a mirror check and was surprised by the size of my pores and patches that looked over layered. So, this obviously is a necessary step. At least with the foundation I am currently using. I will continue to use and since I am determined to spend less on my cosmetic/skin care products than my grocery bill, this is a keeper for me. I usually strike out with drug store primers.
This is a fantastic primer. I typically wear department store/Sephora cosmetics, but I have not had good luck with most expensive primers. Smashbox Photo Finish, the cult favorite, makes me break out and feels somewhat slick on my skin. Same with Laura Mercier. I've been turning to the drugstore for primers and have actually found the best primers there. This Revlon one is neck & neck with my all-time favorite, L'Oreal Magic Perfecting Base. This primer comes in very nice packaging which looks high end, a glass bottle with black lettering and a black pump top, similar to MAC or Make Up For Ever. The primer itself is a lotiony pale pink liquid. It applies easily and doesn't feel at all slick, and dries quickly. It provides a soft, smooth, totally matte finish that is an ideal base for makeup. I can use this on bare skin for a flawless matte look without makeup, or under makeup, it helps it last all day. It doesn't cause me to break out. For the price (under $13) you get a large bottle, which is a touch pricey for drugstore, but still about 1/3 or even 1/4 the price of Smashbox or Laura Mercier primers, for more product. Overall this is quickly becoming my favorite primer, and I will definitely repurchase. Very, very nice product. I recommend trying this, even if you're typically a department store or Sephora-only wearer.
So I was perusing the cosmetics aisle at Rite-Aid after not having been to the drugstore for about two months. There were plenty of new products I saw, but this one immediately made me throw it in my basket and never look back. I'd been looking for a good, affordable primer to try out, and was so excited to finally find one in a drugstore that I could try. And let me tell you... THIS STUFF IS THE TRUTH. It has a slight, non-offensive scent, glides over your face and makes it baby's butt smooth and somewhat satiny. My makeup honestly looked SO much better than it had without it (for reference I use Revlon PhotoReady foundation). And get this... I went out and ended up falling asleep in my makeup (big no-no... I know), and when I woke up and looked in the mirror my makeup still looked great! Guys, don't take my word for it, you need to try this product. My makeup routine has been changed forever.
I'm impressed by this. Very inexpensive and works so well! Makes my skin the perfect canvas for my Mac Studiofix. Without this I tend to get shiny rather quickly. Going on 6 hours here and haven't had to do any blotting :) I'm so happy I've found a replacement for my Mac prep and prime, at a fraction of the price!
