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.

This is one of the better primers I have used. Much better than MAC and just as good as some of the higher end ones. The price is really awesome too. When I first bought it it was only 12 dollars, but last time I went they raised it to $14. This does make my makeup last longer, and I would repurchase, but my coastal scents silica powder is my main primer.EDIT - I had to remove a lippie for this. I notice I breakout a lot more frequently when using this.

I just purchased this because I am using NARS sheer matte foundation which doesn't have any spf. So far, I am loving that it hasn't broken me out as I have extremely oily skin. It seems to hold my foundation in place all day. Plus the price is excellent next to all the other primers I have bought. Who knew VS would come up with such a nice cosmetic product!Edit: It doesn't have the pore minimizing effect I wanted nor did it keep the oilies away.

I have used FX Face Primer for a few months and it is okay.Scent- It is a pretty mild scent and is not offensive.Packaging- I think all primers should come in a pump like this. It's hygienic, convenient, and looks good/works well. Formula- While it works well as a primer (makeup stays put pretty well and glides on easily and evenly), this formula is a bit too greasy for me. It hasn't made me break out but it has an oily feel to it that I don't care for. Price- The formula is not off-the-charts bad, and for the price I don't think I can buy something better, but I am willing to pay a bit more for something a bit less slick.

I've been using this for about a week in the intense North Carolina summer heat and I am very impressed. The first day I tried it, I went for a 30 minute walk with my dog when it was about 90 degrees outside. When I arrived back home, I only had to powder my nose a bit. This may be the best primer I've ever used. It's not overly silicone-based like Smashbox (I'm not a fan) and it goes on like a dream - creamy, like velvet. It fills in minor lines on my forehead and makes my Bare Minerals foundation last all day. At $14, you really can't beat it. I was very pleasantly surprised at the new line of VS Makeup. Will definitely repurchase!
