I bought this at the suggestion of my SA who claimed that it would help control the oilies that I tend to get in the afternoon while also making my foundation glide on. I was not impressed with this product at all. I have tried every primer out there - LM, GA, Shiseido, Rose Illusion, Chanel, Clarins, Smashbox, MAC etc. - and this is nothing special. It went on smoothly, although felt a bit heavier than other primers. I'm not sure that it helped with my foundation application since it balled up on a couple of occasions. I still needed to blot in the afternoon, and after a couple of weeks of use, this stuff smelled so bad, I ended up throwing it out. Frankly, there are so many other better primers out there. La Prairie, Smashbox and Clarins have great primers to help your foundation glide on and MAC's Prep & Prime is dynamite for controlling the oilies. No need to waste money on this so-so product.
