I'm on the hunt for the perfect primer and for me, this is NOT it. Thankfully, I had a sample of this, I would never buy a full bottle.

It did make my blush last longer than other primers I've tried but that is the only good thing I can say about it. The negative sides to this are many:
- I have pink/blue undertones, so this shade made me look completely dull. I didn't know it was supposed for yellow undertones and even if I did, I only had a sample of mauve.
- The smell was not to my liking. But as no one mentioned this yet, I think my sample could have been too old.
- The consistency was too thick, so spreading the primer out was difficult.
- I looked very oily after a few hours of wear, even with setting powder on top, and I have rather dry skin.

I won't even try other shades of this as it's just not what I look for in a primer.
