I quite like this (coming from a girl with not much experience with face primers).
It's colourless and has a very thick texture. It comes out of the bottle in little balls. I actually don't like the packaging, it has so much air inside. Sometimes you have to shake it to really get the product close to the nozzle, even when it's brand new.
Aside from that, it fills in my pores slightly, but nothing miraculous. It also smooths out any texture or roughness on the skin, which makes the foundation glide on so nicely. The finish it leaves is matte. As for fine lines, I have also noticed a slight improvement, but nothing major.
This also seems to control my oiliness quite nicely.

Beware! I'm not sure if everyone knows this, but this is a PRIMER! It's not a treatment. I know their advertisements don't always make it clear, but all the effects go away as soon as you wash your face.

I use this on the lines on my forehead. It doesn't work at all under my makeup, so I put it on top of my foundation. I use about a pea sized amount. I make sure I have it a spread out evenly on my finger then I pat the product on. I apply the miracle blur only on the lines. They are a little less pronounced when I apply it in this way. I will not buy this again. It doesn't have enough blur effect as I had hoped for.

I cannot use this under foundation. After experimenting with it I find I use the tiniest amounts after all my makeup is on in two problem areas on my face. It fills in a scar/ large pore on my nose without making it look white like primers do, and it smooths out a small area of minor acne scarring/ wrinkles on my forehead. It will probably take me a couple years to actually use the whole tube of this because I use very little each day. It does tend to "move" a bit and I touch up a bit sometimes, but putting powder over top ends up being more of a mess, for me anyway. I think I will repurchase when the time comes though there may be something even better by then! I definitely think it helps with my self esteem and is a good alternative to invasive skin treatments that I have considered.

I am so not a fan of this product. I had read good things (not on Makeup Alley) and bought a tube since I tend to like silicone based products as primer. It is so thick it barely comes out of the tube. It comes out in pieces. It is colorless so it really isn't a BB or anything but a line filler. There are so many better products. One good use is as SPF30 sunscreen and it gives you a nice matte finish while sunning. I can't wait to finish it and I will not purchase it again.

This is very thick, but smooths on beautifully. I am 22 but have fine lines under my eyes, and this product really helps to fill them in and 'blur' them out! I use it on top of primer but under foundation, and I love the effect. I don't know how good it would be for deeper wrinkles, but it works for my fine lines. It has a chemical-sweet smell, but it doesn't irritate my skin. All up, I like this product a lot more that other ones like Benefit's Porefessional, and will repurchase!

So this morning I tried this on my 69 year old skin and wow. it is like velvet and smooths out my skin in preparation for foundation. I will be buying this as soon as I get to the USA. Everything is much more cost effective there!

Product is very difficult to get out of tube. Must be "softened" before applying. It does give a nice blurred effect. That said, it broke my fifty year old skin out like I was a teenager! Not happy at all. It's fairly expensive for a drug store product. Too bad because it does a nice job of smoothing the texture of the skin before applying foundation.

This is pretty pricey at $24.99 for a drugstore primer, so I did alot of research before purchasing this product. So far, the product lived up to its price.

The texture is one of the thickest I've ever seen in a primer--if someone mixed cookie dough with some silicone, this would probably be what they'd get. Some people may not like how thick it is, but I think this is perfect for filling in pores. I have huge pores and general uneven skin texture from acne scars, and when I tack (there's no other word to describe it) this on to my pores, it evens out my face in a way that no other primer does. I even like it a bit more than the Porefessional, which I feel lately doesn't do much other than give my face a powdery finish.

I would put this on top of my foundation though, since using it on the bottom makes the face look more cakey, and the primer balls up a bit. A bonus is that this one has SPF 30, so I feel even better using it on top of my foundation. I took off a lippy for the price, but if you're ok to spend $25, this will be worth it imo.

THIS product is NOT a primer....its simple a cream that helps smooth out your skin...if use daily you can actually see a difference in your skin...i love the way it makes my skin feel so soft...i use it under make up or just on my bare skin....LOVE IT!!!!!

Love this!!Tried a sample of this and it does make pores look smaller,makes skin very soft and makeup look so smooth. This would probably work on more mature skin as well for wrinkles and or lines. I'd definitely recommend. A little goes a long way,so a tube will last.Worth the price.
