LOVE LOVE LOVE this product~! Its a must use before any foundation touches my face! it helps keep my makeup fresh all day. My makeup never turns color from oils in my skin and it doesn't slide off at all! Love it and its a staple in my makeup bag!
This is the only primer I've tried so I can't compare it to others but find it is very good. I have combination, sensitive, acne-prone skin and this doesn't irritate it at all. It is a tiny bit greasy/moisturising so it tends to not absorb easily. It makes my foundation last longer though and I'd consider repurchasing it. I'm looking forward to trying it during the cooler months ahead when my skin becomes drier to see if there's any difference.
Absolutely loved this product. Even got a few friends to buy it. Then the breakouts started. I wrote the company and they replied back that yes that is what is probably causing my new strain of breakouts. Thanks...would have been nice to know. The girl I talked to said she couldn't use it either because it broke out her skin. Too bad because I thought it did a great job.
I really didn't care for this product. The scent was overpowering, it felt just like a cheap face moisturizer and did nothing to help keep my foundation in place. I get the same results using an unscented skincare lotion as I do with this one plus I get skincare benefits. As far as keeping your makeup on or giving your makeup a smooth surface to adhere to, i've had better luck using a silicone base product like Origins Perfect world,Oil Of Olay regenerist serum, or Merle Norman Fine Line minimizer all of which provide skincare benefits along with giving your foundation a smooth silky canvas to adhere to. The fragrance in the LM is enough to make me steer clear. Not to mention it felt kind of heavy and very much like old lady lotion on. There are better primers out there for the price.
i just just had to say my piece here. i love love love this product. i used to get breakouts often for wearing makeup but when i started with the primer, i notice an incredible difference to my skin, it didn't breakout as much and now hardly ever! it's like a buffer between your skin and the makeup so nothing gets into your pores. overpriced no doubt but i love the fact that it's colorless and so lightweight. it's simply amazing!
I had to try this after hearing so much about it. I can't really tell a difference. I wish for the amount of money it cost I could really see it working.
I love this stuff! My makeup looks just as fresh when I leave work at 4 pm as it did when I applied it at 7 am. It also think it helps my TM go on alot more smoothly.I think I may have become a Laura Mercier freak.
This makes the foundation go on so smooth... but It's just a nice little extra. nothing that's necessary. I'll keep using it because I am a sucker. Overall, if you have a nice moiturizer you are happy with and makes a nice base for m/u, you won't need this.
I haven't used other primers before so I have very little information on comparison. I can tell you that after a night of heavy drinking and dancing, my make up looked freshly applied.
I don't feel compelled to write reviews very often, but I'm amazed by this stuff. I have dehydrated yet oily skin, and my makeup always slides off of my face by the end of the day. I have used this the past two mornings, and I am AMAZED at how fresh and clean my makeup looks, even after 12 hours of wear, with this primer underneath it! I wear stila Sheer Color TM with IPF dusted over the top, and this primer just makes it look 10 times better. I notice a slight overall smoother look, but just the even-ness of wear is amazing. I do still get oily, I wish that the primer controlled oil, that's my only complaint. I still get just as oily, but my makeup stays in place! Usually it just starts slipping and sliding, but not with this gem.
I'll be purchasing this for sure! I know it's pricey, but I think it's worth it so that I don't have to touch up so often. Yay!
