I tried a free sample of this primer. I liked how much it brightened my complexion, and I even wore it alone without foundation. What ruined it for me was the oiliness of the product. My face felt so greasy and disgusting after using it. Makes me sad!
I still on the fence with this one... I do love that it doesn't have that slick, oily feel to it. Instead it absorbs right in and I think it does a good job of keeping my foundation on well. However, I wish it kept me more matte which is what I really wanted. My face still gets pretty oily mid day. I originally went to get sonia Kashuk's mattifying primer, but it was sold out. Not only there but in every target in my city. I think that's saying something... and it's almost half the price. I'll finish my pixi primer, but I wouldn't re-buy it. Especially for the price tag of nearly 30 bucks!
I am an African American female with oily, acne prone skin. Recently my acne has cleared up and I only get menstrual breakouts, but I still have post acne marks. My skin is still pretty oily though, especially on hot days. Now that the weather is a little colder it isn't as oily, but still oily nonetheless. I use garnier dark spot corrector as a moisturizer before I put on the flawless and poreless primer, then I apply concealer, liquid foundation, blush and a translucent setting powder (elf or MAC). I really like this primer. I have tried one other high end one which was, the MAC prep and prime Skin Visage Base which is the same price ($29) as this primer. The MAC one was probably the best I have used BUT this comes very close to it. I find that it leaves my foundation and everything looking flawless. I've never been one to pay much attention to pores so I do not notice much difference there but the shininess of my face throughout the day has also decreased. This literally last me all day which me touching up with my prep and prime translucent powder maybe 1-2 times in a 10+ hour day. I really like the product and WOULD buy it again BUT for the price, I am probably better off just buying the MAC one.
Expensive. In the year I have had this, I've used it maybe five times. I found a better primer that costs less than $10 which is Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind Primer.
I found that this primer softened the look of my face and evened my asian ivory skintone. For at home days, since my skin is dry and I apply at least three moisturizing products, I love to use primers afterwards to cut down on any oiliness or shine. I figure less is more in benefitting my skin. Why apply BB cream or concealer when I'm trying to repair dry skin and maybe only three people will see me in a day ? Anyways, I would not get this again. Sorry Pix.
I tried so hard to make this work. It was a recommended product for me on bloom.com. It was oily and made my makeup slide right off. I have normal to dry skin, so this isn't my usual expeience with primers. It did have a nice sheen to it, although a bit much for daytime. I tried it with three foundations and had the same results each time. It was slightly better without foundation, but it still had a sticky, oily feel after a couple of hours. Maybe it would work as a body illuminator, if you wanted to pay that much for one. I wouldn't use it again if they were giving it away.
I keep trying to like this and fail each time.
Fails ( for me) as a primer, compared to Monistat, and corrects nothing.
Got it as a sample in a kit, so just happy I did not pay for a full size.
Pixi Peach concealer is so fabulous. This is not.
I got a small almost sample sized of this product in a kit from a local store which i paid $12 for and let me tell you it is awesome. I use it everyday and it does make my makeup stay put all day, it does help even out my skin tone so i dont have to use as much concealer that i usually have to. it does a little bit lack in the hiding pores department but overall it is so nice!
i would defiantly repurchase this product.
LOVE IT . ! :)
Blah! Totally wasted almost $30! Does NOTHING! I have oily prone skin - made it look even more oily. My pores? Still obvious. Not a happy purchase.
I decided to take the plunge and get myself a primer. This one seem ideal for my oily acne prone face. It didnt do much, since it neither did it control my oily spots or make my foundation last.
