I liked this b/c it has uva/uva sunblock but it felt greasy and made my makeup foundation look ashy.
I LOOVEEEE the victoria 's secret primer! One plus is that it has UV and it's not oily. When you first put it on it seems oily but it comees out really smoothly. Most primers tend to make my face oily but this one doesn't. I highly recommend getting it it's worth it only 15 bucks. The bottle looks small but it lasted me a good while!
I like this primer, I mean it is not bad, my face is combination type and this primer doesnt prevent my face from getting oily.. but i am pissed with the packaging, just because i am almost done with this (i have like 1/4 of the product in the container) and i just cant get it out.. the pump wont let me reach for more product even though there is quite a lot in the conatiner, i guess it is just a pump problem, but i feel like it is a huge waste of money, cause i only got to use 3/4ths of the product
I have aging skin with pock mark scarring and I absolutely loved this primer. During the summer, I use it under a tinted moisturizer w/sunscreen and it stays fresh all day!
I had a 10$ off coupon n saw the great reviews n thought why not???So I only ended up paying a few bucks for this.If you have very oily skin I would stay away. The reason this has so many great reviews is because there is only one person hat reviewed with very oily skin. This has a pump on it that I liked the look of it at first but sometimes when you press down nothing comes out and sometimes you get an extra big globb so I ended up hating the pump.The product itself is somewhat greasy to me and for me being acne prone, is something I would run from putting on my face.This made my face oiler and shinier faster after my makeip application. I had a few breakouts not sure if it was from this or hormonal time of the month. I would not purchase this cheap greasy primer again.Prob great for dry or drier skin sounds like
I use a lot of primer so it's one of my more costly makeup expenses. I'm always hoping to find one that's a great deal, but so far the best ones I've found are Lancome Pro Base and Smashbox Photo FInish with Dermaxyl. This VS one wasn't terribly expensive and had great reviews but after 2 weeks of use, I am forced to admit it isn't working for me. Its failings are two-fold; it doesn't give a soft look around my eyes like the Smashbox Dermaxyl does, and my makeup melts off a lot faster than it does with Smashbox Dermaxyl.So back to my old favorite I've gone.
I really wanted to love this product, but it just wasn't meant to be. The texture is very nice; it is very silky smooth. However, I felt that is just sat on top of my skin and did not absorb at all. When I applied my MAC studiofix on top it seemed to not really bond well to the primer. I think I will just stick to my regular Aveda hydrating lotion, because this just doesn't seem to do it for me. Maybe a good face primer just doesn't exist....
Ok, I have tried A TON of Primers. Seriously, everything from Fyrinnae to Maybelline to Smashbox to Cargo....The list is huge. This is the very first one I've actually used up in its entirety AND have repurchased immediately, because all of my other backup Primers just won't do. It's affordable (about $16...so half the price that Cargo Blu Ray is), has a great clear pump bottle so you can easily see how much you have left, goes on smoothly, has SPF, gives a slight luminescence to the skin if you want to wear it alone, and creates a nice smooth canvas for your foundation. My one and only gripe is that if you squirt a little too enthusiastically with the pump, the product may shoot across the room and decorate the wall next to you (true story!). Also, the last couple pumps left in the bottle come out just a little more 'dry' and less emolliant than the rest of the bottle. I love this stuff. Will continue to repurchase.
I have oily to combination skin so I have been looking for a primer to use daily especially in the evening when I go out with friends, that will eliminate shine. Well I have found that product!
This primer not only has a velvet feel to it, it also minimizes pores, controls shine and makes my foundation look flawless. This is perfect for oily to combo skin I will definitely repurchase this product again!
I didn't know much about makeup primers, but after looking at Youtube videos, I decided to check some out. The VS brand is one of my FAVORITES!
The price is very appropriate and I would definitely purchase it again. Add me to the list of satisfied customers!
