Its hard to spread so its hard go get it evenly on the skin. the price is just right. I may try the makeupforever brand with spf 40. Im still searching for a primer with spf that suits my skin.
I'm an Avon/Mark. rep and I really wanted to love this product. But I don't! It's just meh. It feels a bit heavy worn under long wearing foundation, it's will become ineffective in the heat of late Spring/Summer as it kinda melts off. Unless you have gorgeous even skin to begin with, you will NOT be able to use it in place of reg makeup. The only other foundation primer I have tried is Clinique Instant Pore Minimizer, which I think is a better product.
Why do I feel guilty writing that? lol
I love this product, it does everything is says. It controls the oil on my skin and keeps my face looking nice and fresh all day. I recently ordered the avon matte-nificent oil absorbing powder which I plan to use as my foundation over the magix. But I basically think it's indeed magic in a tube and a little goes a far way, so i already ordered 2 more to stock up.
Love this and I love the tinted Magix in a compact. I would, and will, repurchase both products.
This stuff is okay by itself. However, I mix it with my Beauty Bliss mineral powder foundation. It turns it into a great tinted primer that matches my skintone. I then finish it off by blending my Beauty Bliss foundation over it. By itself and in general it leaves a great matte finish. I like this product and especially like what you can do with it.
I hated this at first, thinking there was no differeance when I used it and put it away for a long while. But then I started thinking of all the things I wanted in make up cause at 25 I am getting that "inbetween skin" where it definately needs something, but I hate the look of heavy makeup. I also wanted something with an SPF. I tried it again after I realized it fits the bill, and now I use it all the time. It sops up the greasies for about 6 or 7 hours. LOVE THIS! I am stocking up now.
This is a brilliant product and a fantastic substitute for Philosophy's Supernatural Poreless Flawless SPF 15, another great product which I had been faithfully using. Unlike Philosophy's Supernatural, this is tint-free. (I find I can make my face look peachy coloured if I apply too much Supernatural, which is surprisingly easy to do.) The added SPF 20 is a wonderful bonus! Avon boasts shine-free effects which last for up to 10 hours, which is a huge exaggeration: it's more like up to 4 hours (for me, anyways). The end results (which are superb!) are the same I get with Supernatural, but this is way cheaper. It's especially good value if you can get it when it goes on sale from time to time.
Overall I love this! Great that it has SPF 20 and is not at all oily. I put my moisturizer on first then this and then my foundation. Works fabulously. I have regularly/combo skin - not really oily at all, only occasionally with periodic breakouts here and there. Leaves a nice finish. I even bought a backup. I recommend this, especially for people with my skin type.
Used sparingly this leaves a nice translucent matte finish to my skin. I'll use it if I really want a neat and tidy matte no makeup day. I put too much on recently and had to wash it off because when I stroked my face I could feel it streaking. I forgot to say that I don't use it as a prefoundation primer, just use it alone.
I have very oily skin (usually shiny within 2 hours of applying foundation/powder) but this product does a great job of keeping the shine away.
The silky consistency makes your skin feel very soft and it creates a smooth canvas for your foundation.
This product works far better for me than the pricier versions sold in department stores. I will be stocking up on this!
