I can't say that this is the best primer ever... because it's not. It does have add some staying power to my makeup. This product doesn't really "fix and perfect" like it claims. In fact, it actually made me look a bit orange. I think I won't waste my money on this again.

I got this in a bundle w/ the rimmel stay matte foundation. I'm not a big primer wearer; i've used sephora's mattifying primer when the weather is incredibly warm/humid. But, as far as the rimmel primer, i really like it! It evens out my redness and makes the stay matte foundation easier to apply/blend. I'm very impressed!

This product smooths my skin nicely, and suprisingly I find it works best under my mineral POWDER foundation as a base to smooth things out and controls oil, but it makes NO difference under liquid foundation, because the liquid foundation already smooths things out, and for some reason I really don't notice a difference!! Plus it doesn't make your foundation last ANY longer, it's really crappy, but again, it does work under my POWDER foundation which is weird because I think of primer as something to use under liquid foundation.

ALSO my skin is usually anywhere from the 2nd - 4th lightest shade, but with this product (and Rimmel in general) I have the lightest shade, and so if you have light skin DEFINATELY don't buy this.... you will look like an orange.

this def. gave my foundation a SLIGHT orange cast, but one nonetheless. I think this product made me more oily than i normally am (how on earth is that possible?) and broke me out. my makeup did not go on much differently while using this product as well.

I really like how this primer makes my skin so smoothe, and matte, however it doesn't dry out my skin either like most primers. My makeup goes on much smoother, and my face doesn't have that sticky, moist foundation feel afterwards. The orange tint doesn't do anything to your skin, it goes on pretty much clear. I really, really like this.

This came with a set that was on sale, so i bought it. I wouldnt pay full price. It looks orange, but once its on your skin, you really cant tell. It does make my skin feel smooth, but it doesnt really do anything else. Doesnt keep my makeup on longer or make it go on smoother. This is just an ok product for me. its not a must have, but i dont realy 'regret' buying it.

I was all set to give this a bad review until I read one on here that said to try it as an eyeshadow primer. It's a FANTASTIC eyeshadow primer, my favorite one, much better than L'Oreal DeCrease.
PROS: If you're using it as an eyeshadow primer, this is a great buy. It makes shadow stick all day and it doesn't tint your lids before you put the shadow on. I hate that.
CONS: This is not a good foundation primer! It's basically just a moisturizer, let's be honest. It doesn't smooth pores or help foundation stick or anything. And I don't like how much product comes out at once.
OVERALL: If you're looking for a good shadow primer, this is a good buy. However, using it for it's intended purpose is a bad idea.

I bought this product because I really wanted a foundation primer, and didn't feel like spending a ton of money on a fancy one. I'm pleased to say that this one works very well.
When you first put it on, it makes your face feel EXTREMELY smooth, which I love. I just want to keep touching my face because it's so soft.
It makes my foundation last a lot longer than it does without a primer.
Also, my foundation just looks more natural and airbrushed with this underneath.
I think it's a great product.

I can't believe all the bad reviews! Yes, the primer is a frightening shade when it comes out of the bottle but it shouldn't turn your face orange unless you really glob it on. I am the palest person I know and it works for me. If you apply this properly it won't make you look like an oompa-loompa. It controls oil pretty well and helps my makeup last. Pretty good for the money.
