Add me to the list of people who are so happy with this primer. It comes in a pump, which makes it hygenic. A little primer goes a long way. It has SPF and glides on smooth. Feels like the smashbox primer, but at a fraction of the price. I was talking to the salesperson, and they said that very little primer is needed actually to hold your makeup in place. She said some people pile on the primer, which is a big mistake. Very little, goes a looooong way. And it truly does for me too, one pump is enough to cover my entire face, and neck. Doesn't cause flaking like other primers do, and my makeup lasts 8+ hours with this. Will definitely repurchase this!
What's not to like? It feels like smashbox but this one has UVA and UVB sun protection.Smashbox does not provide UVA protection.This makes it decieving since the SPF refers to UVB anot UVA.The price makes it a steal
I really like this primer. I would say love, but it's just that I don't think primer is a necessity for makeup. But this feels like nothing else I've ever felt, it's velvety smooth and isn't shiny or oily like most primers. Gives my face a nice smooth base and doesn't break me out. The price is nice, too considering VS isn't always cheap and neither are primers in general.
The pump works on mine and everything but it sort of spits out the product at me and scares me everytime and gives me too much. I even try to press really slowly and still it gets me. Oh well.
Last week someone asked me if I had changed my hair color. Nope. "Something about you makes you look younger." Pretty sure it was this product! It does a great job of making small fine lines disappear, and my make-up lasts a lot longer to boot. I hadn't used a primer before but received a sample of Lancome. Not wanting to pay the hefty price I did a lot of research and came up with VS. I've never bought any other makeup from VS before, but I'm definitely impressed with this. I love that it comes in a pump bottle, too!
LOVE THIS!!! A tiny bit goes a long way. I apply this a few minutes after my morning skin care and let it sit for a few minutes. Smooths beautifully, foundation glides over this, and it doesn't cause ANY additional oilness, dryness, irritation, or discoloration. I have oily/combo, finicky skin and I have nothing but good things to say about this. So far the best primer I've tried. Great value.
Loves it! HG as long as they don't sneak-tweak the formula. I use one pump for my entire face. Sets well. No added fragrance. It isn't visible but it does seem to give a sort of glow to the skin. My foundation applys like a dream over this and it lasts. $14 isn't a bad price although it was like $12 just a couple of short years ago. It is chock full of a bunch of chemicals :-( which is my only complaint. For reference I have sensitive, rosacea, acne-prone, combo skin that hates everything.
I am so pleasantly surprised by this primer.. First thought was the feel and scent is just like smashbox primer which was my fav.. I am acne prone and moderately oily and this has done a great job and unlike Mac primer its not full of glitter or shimmer which for me was nasty.. Overall Amazing product most definitely HG Primer!!
Dissapointed in this product. This is the first primer i've tried where i'm literally starting to get shiny around my nose/cheeks before my butt hit my chair at work in the morning (7am). I know there is no miracle worker out there to keep oil away completely; but I did have high hopes this would do a better job at keeping my oiles in check.
Another thing is my foundation didn't look as "even" looking as it does when using other primers. Up for swap it goes; hopefully it will help someone else out!
This primer went on silky smooth, and dried quickly. It made my skin matte immediately. My concealer & my studio fix powder foundation went on so smoothly. My skin looked flawless after application! I have been wearing this for over 3 hours now and my cheeks have stayed matte but my nose does seem a bit oily, so im not sure how this does with shine control. But overall awesome product. Definitely work checking into!
This primer mattifies my face and softens it and minimizes pores and gives me a great base for my foundation. Does everything a primer should do without the $40 price tag! Love it. I've tried others, but I don't know why I bother. It's $12 and works just as well as any other primer.
