I'm 48 with fine lines and a little crepe and this is PERFECT under mineral powder foundations, adds staying power without caking all day. Doesn't settle into creases and stands up to the Aus climate! I have tried it under cream foundations and my makeup started to slip off... FYI after a little investigating I discovered that the 'M Dream Smooth Primer' has exactly the same ingredients, which is interesting considering the amount and price difference!? (M Instant Age Rewind the better value.) 'M Baby Skin'? Basically the same, although there are a few additional fruity things, etc. Whoopti do?!...Hmmm???

This primer is just awful. It did make my skin feel like silk, but it seemed to me my foundation just sat on top of this stuff. I could not blend the foundation into my skin, and just made me look like a grease monkey. I just no longer trust ANY Maybelline products.

This is one of my HG products. I actually use it on my under eye area. I apply moisturizer and then the Maybelline age rewind primer. When I apply my under eye concealer it's smooth, never creases and the little lines are completely invisible.

overall made my skin really greasy and oily feeling. thought i'd use maybe half the tube before deciding an opinion. I just am not really liking it, if anything it makes my pores more noticeable.

My pot of this product has just ran out and my new primer just isn't cutting it. This is a great affordable silicone type primer and I love it, even though I don't really need an anti-ageing primer (I'm 20). The one negative I have is that if you use a super creamy foundation over the top or have oily skin it will slide around a bit if you don't set it with powder.

I bought this primer to help with pores/fine lines and it does not help cover any of these (there was no before/after difference when using this except my skin felt more slippery). Made my t-zone oilier than normal so it is a fail for me. I am currently trying a lancome pore primer sample and it seems to cover pores much better.

My advice for primers is test a handful of samples before purchasing :)

This has been my go-to primer for years. My skin is very oily in some areas and dry/flaky in others, and this primer helps create a smooth canvas. I use about a pea-sized amount for my entire face. I'm very happy with the look it gives my foundation, but not sure if it makes it last longer. I recommend not applying this primer to the eyelid area if you're going to wear dark eye makeup as it can move around.

I'll start with the positive side *works great with powder foundation * little bit goes along way -Negative impact- - in less than 2 hours, my face looked greasy, foundation/powder was bubbling on top. just awful. please avoid this product. you were warned.

Let me start out by saying that I don't know if I'm just mildly allergic to silicon or it's Maybelline's formula, but this primer (along with Baby Skin) broke my skin out after one use. I tried a small bit around my cheeks and chin and the next morning, my face was covered in a fresh patch of acne. On top of that, I didn't see any difference in my skin, besides the fact that it made my face look super greasy. Will be returning it ASAP.

During my search for the ultimate primer I came across this stuff. After reading overall good reviews, I got it. It feels nice on my fingers and on my face and makeup goes over it pretty well. The only problem is that if I use just a tiny bit too much, or rub it in too vigorously, it makes tiny little balls. These little bits of rolled up product is the reason for only 3 lippies. Apart from that, it doesn't dry out my skin and does a little to blur imperfections.
