I love this product, i have really oily skin and it helps control oil and instantly mattifies my face. It also minimizes pores visibly. it leaves my skin feeling super soft and its a good base for my concealer. I don't even need to use foundation anymore, i just use concealer and powder on top of this. I would definitely buy this again. The only reason i didn't give it 5 stars is because it doesn't control my oily skin all day, so i still have to blot and powder my face after a few hours. I am beginning to think there is no product that will ever diminish that problem, so i am satisfied with this product.
Much like the Magic Lumi, this product is ok but not great.
The price is palatable, I think it was under $20. It's a small jar but a little goes a long way. At first you think that it will be pasty but it goes on very nicely. It makes your skin very smooth and visibly more even in tone. I find that I don't really like HOW it feels on my face, though. Like a layer of oil. Again, my shine comes through in no time, I have no hope of finding something topical that will keep it at bay. I drink lemon and water, it helps. (tip from my nutritionist that strangely enough seems to work for me). I dislike the packaging. When you have to dip your finger into something, I think gross. I could use a qtip but it feels wasteful. Just my issue, maybe. I'll use it up but won't repurchase.
I tried this product back when I was still learning how to put on foundation. I hadn't read any reviews on it, so I bought it rather blindly in the hopes that it would work for me.
I use high-end products now, but back in my drugstore days I thought that this primer was fantastic at first. However, after using more high-end primers like Smashbox and Too Faced I realize that this doesn't really do much for me. Although it made my skin smooth, it didn't too much to make my makeup last, and was actually causing my foundation to crease and made me look drab and dull.
In the end I dumped it. In the case of primers, unfortunately, you get what you pay for.
I might recommend it to someone who needs something inexpensive who doesn't wear a lot of makeup, but I wouldn't recommend it for anyone with many fine lines or large pores.
I bought this primer after trying the Smashbox primer and finding that it broke me out very badly. This one does exactly what I expect/ want and I love it. I can always tell when I've forgotten to put it on because my makeup applies terribly- streaky and cakey. Much cheaper than a high end primer and just as good, if not better. I do wish this came in a tube instead, but the jar isn't unnecessarily bulky so I don't really mind.
first of all the pot is annoying , a tube kind of thing would make things much easier imo
the product itself ,i am quite on the fence , while i like the finish and how smooth my skin becomes after i use this , i feel it "helps" my foundation to cake up ... i might be doing something wrong though , but regardless if i used it lightly or heavily i still got same result , so shortly i just gave up
I gave it a 1 for overall rating because first off I see no difference I see a dramatic difference with primed ando releases because it does what it says unlike this product. A 3 for price because it should cost like no more then 6 bucks.mtoo me it is to much for the little it does. I rather pay 20 for my primed and poreless. Also a 1 for packaging quality because a lot come in tube and this one you have to stick your finger which is unsanitary. The only good thing I can say about is it gives a cashmere feeling like the primed and poreless. I guess if you don't try any better ones you'd think it works fine. Even though I got this last year before I tried primed and poreless I thought it was pretty useles and never used before my foundation. If you really want a good primer and see a beautiful difference in your skin before you even apply your foundation go for the extra spending bucks and get too faced primed and poreless.
First off, I would like to disagree to those who are saying you do not get alot of product, a little goes a long way with this, and those who say otherwise must be caking it on their face. The first thing that caught my eye on the package is that it helps to smooth skin, that it does. However, if you are looking for a primer that is going to help your foundations last longer, keep looking. This may be suitable for someone who has mild summers where they live but for hot weather, it does not hold up well. I would buy again to wear alone if i wanted just a nice matte finish, but would not purchase again as a primer.
I bought this product awhile back after needing a good primer to put underneath my foundation. After reading several reviews, I was excited to try it out. I was dissapointed after not minimizing my large pores or not keeping my makeup on while I was at school for 7 hours. I stopped using it after about a week. But, I think I am going to give it another try.
Packaging: VERY SMALL. Not much in the package and alot does NOT go a long way.
I probably will not repurchase this item.
This product no matter how i applied felt like i was putting glue on my face, it made my pores huge.
My mom got this product then gave it to me. She doesn't really wear eyeshadow and I do, but I usually just do a very subtle neutral eye anywaysII'm 13). I can't really tell that big of a difference since my eyeshadows don't crease, nor do I have oily eyelids. But I think it was arouund 12$ or so, so I wouldn't really buy it with my old money. Of course, I still have my Urban Decay Primer Potion that I got for my birthday lolololl. I don't use it everyday, but i really can't tell the difference when I use this!
