Surpsingly, this product plays well with my acne prone skin. Works very well under tinted moisturizer and powder foundation. A definite repurchase.
I'm actually on my second jar of this primer, despite the price and the tiny jar. It makes my mineral foundation last all day and makes it go on very smoothly - it does very much make my skin look perfect after I use this. Not the most hygienic of containers, although a new cotton bud dipped every use solves that problem. Will keep buying this as long as the price doesn't go up dramatically. I wouldn't agree that "a little goes a long way", I use two pea-sized blobs to cover my whole face. Maybe I've got a humungous head, I dunno. Still, HG (for now).
I've re-purchased this twice now, so (obviously) I think that it's overall a good product. It mattifies, evens my skin tone slightly and gives it a clean look even alone (without makeup). I feel as though it works with my moisturizer to create a perfectly soft base for my makeup. However, I can't really say whether or not this truly extends the life of my makeup, as I haven't noticed anything on that front. I just like how it feels on my skin.
This primer is pretty thick, so I wouldn't recommend this to anyone with oily skin.
I just bought this product yesterday and I tried it this morning, not really sure what to expect because I've never used a primer before!
I didn't really see anything happen, I wasn't sure how much too put on, I read that a little goes a long way, but how much is a little? Because my 'little' will definately not spread on my whole face!
What i did really like about it is how smooth it made my face feel, i dont wear foundation, so i'm not really sure how it would work with that, i just use a concealer if i have a pimple. the reason i would probably purchase this product again is because my face looks a lot less shiny then it usually does 10 hours after applying it, and I'm sure it works really well with a powder also, i just didnt try it with one today!
I tried this product after my friend bought it and it didn't work out for her. I like the sleek bw glass packaging but I wish it came in a tube or bottle
As for the product itself, I'm pleased. It definitely mattifies my skin and smooths out my complexion. I find the product to be very soft and light. It can take a while to find a way to apply it due to the odd texture. It doesn't do too much if I use it in combination with powder foundation but it does help my liquid foundation to stick to my skin and appear less streaky.
It does a fairly decent job of making my foundation last, but I live in the south and it tends to get very humid, so the product can only do so much thanks to the weather. If I'm indoors or the weather isn't hot, it lasts all day. I like it, but if my friend hadn't given it to me, I probably wouldn't have bought it due to the price.
I baught this product for the first time about a year ago and absolutly loved it! I have oily skin and usually use primer before putting on my Laura Mercier mineral powder and it is one of the only primer's that keeps my skin fresh and oil-free for the duration of the day! I have tried MANY different primers in the past, including: Sephora, Makeup forever, benefit, gosh etc. and this one is my absolute favorite!! Plus, it comes in a compact size and lasts pretty long as you do not have to apply a lot at a time. But the best part... it is really in-expensive for what it is :)
I even convinced my non-makeup wearing cousine to try it out on bare skin and she LOVES it, she says it helps mattify and unify her face!
I love this product, smoothes out my skin, pores etc. My face looks like a perfect canvass after using it. However, it broke me out incredibly badly (nothing else has changed in my skincare or makeup regime). I'm devastated as it is a brilliant primer but because of the nasty breakout all over my face I can't give it a high rating :( It has silicon in it so not suitable for sensitive and acne-prone skin.
I bought this product on a whim, because I really needed it for an event I was attending. I hadn't heard any reviews, so I didn't really have any expectations that were too high.
I will start with the only con I have: it isn't in a pump bottle or squeeze container, so I feel like it's a little bit unsanitary, even if you are using clean hands.
Otherwise, I really like this product. I have oily, sensitive skin that's prone to breaking out if I use the wrong products. I haven't had any breakouts, my foundation stayed all night (even in hot, humid Chicago summer weather), and it felt so smooth going onto my skin.
So to sum it up-my makeup stayed on, and it doesn't break me out. I even use on my eyelids because I keep forgetting to by an eyelid primer. I won't repurchase though because I really dislike the packaging.
This is so NOT worth the money, it does smooth out on your skin and you see a bit of a difference alone, but it doesn't help your foundation what so ever.
This is a pretty good primer, i mean you can totally tell when i apply it that my skin just gets brighter. The only thing I really don't like about this product is the container is sooo tiny, i believe i got this at target for 1O or 11$ and thats petty high priced for that little thing.
