OH MY GOD. This is BY FAR the best thing to ever happen to my face. This is the BEST pre-makeup primer I have ever encountered. I have a pretty oily face. In humid Hawaii, my face is an oil slick as soon as I step out of the house. So mineral makeup has been pretty hard tw stick to my face without melting off. I read a few reviews on MOM here, and it sounded pretty weird. But i'm up for weirdness, especially if it's cheap. =) So I went out and bought a small bottle at Walgreens (Philips brand, non flavored, original) for $4.99. (I also bought another empty squeeze bottle so I don't have to dip my fingers in the MOM bottle) So this morning I put one dot on my forehead, one on my nose, on my chin, and one on each cheek, and I blend it into my skin using my fingers. It dried completely with no problems or white flakiness. I applied my mineral EDM makeup as usual, and went out. I went out to lunch with a few friends and walked around a bit. Now, it's 90 degrees out today. The restaurant was OUTSIDE and I was sweating the whole time. When I got home I expected to be some makeup meltage, but to my surprise... NONE! I couldn't believe it! Yes, I did sweat, but my face wasn't oily at all! TRUST ME AT $5 A BOTTLE, AND THE FACT THAT YOU ONLY USE LIKE 5 DROPS AT A TIME... THIS IS WORTH TRYING! AMAZING! <3
