Good primer. It feels so light. It is on the expensive side but a little goes a long way. I like that it has SPF. So you can feel glamorous and it protects you.

Pros- Light, comfortable, SPF 15, a little goes a long way, not sticky or oily.
No:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates

Cons- A little expensive, not good for photo shoots because of the SPF.

Try the travel size first to see how it goes because it is too expensive to try it and not like it.

This felt like silk rubbing it on my face, but other than that, it didn't do anything 'amazing' or better than any other primer I've used. Not sure what all the hype is about on this. I was disappointed.

Can I give a negative rating? Had a deluxe sample from Sephora. AWFUL! HORRIBLE!! Had to take off my foundation and start again. Made my foundation like sludge; would not blend.. hell, it wouldn't even MOVE. Settled into my pores abd gave that familiar polka dot look. Going back to my $6 ELF Poreless Primer.

I was skeptical about this primer, i took the plunge and payed $76 for a 30ml bottle!! I was thinking, if this isn't for real ill be pissed lol.
Well i'm loving it so far. I end up with such minimal shine around the 7 hour mark. That's with my Revlon colorstay foundation. I will try it with my Mac next but so far so good cause i have NEVER stayed shine free that long.

Provides a nice smooth canvas to apply makeup but I'm oily and greasy only a few hours later. I do better not using this but applying their fixing spray after I've applied my foundation. That stuff is awesome!

This product broke me out and I didn't like the texture of it. The good aspect is that the white cast makes skin look more calm so it makes the foundation look better in that aspect. It didn't make my makeup last longer though.

Have aging oily roseacea skin. Tried many primers with not a lot of success. I bought the small size of this to try and it is really good. Have used with ELDWL this summer and my makeup stays on all day. My nose still gets a bit oily, but blotting helps. Will definitely buy the full size when the mini is empty. Have also used with Bb Cream with good results.

Provides the smoothest canvas for your makeup. No sticky or oily residue whatsoever. It allows for my makeup to better adhere onto my skin, providing a flawless finish. I must say it amps up the coverage of my foundation because when I use this primer, I find no need to add concealer. It also helps to keep my oily skin at bay. It's a joke to solely rely on the SPF15 it provides, so I don't take that into consideration. The price hurts my soul but it's absolutely worth it.

OMGGGGGGGG
love this stuff!
I use this before I spritz my face with the Skindinavia oil control primer spray and it just creates the smoothest base for applying foundation, this stuff helps conceal my HUGE pores and it also contributes to keeping my oil away. It hasn't caused any issues so far whatsoever
It may be a little pricey, but if it works then don't be afraid to spend a little!
Remember you only need to apply not even a pea sized amount, like a tiny weeny bit would be plenty for your whole face so one bottle lasts FOREVS

This is my all time favourite holy grail primer. It smooths the skin, minimises redness, reduces shine and makes my makeup last all day. This primer also contains an SPF15 which is good. It has become the primer i use everyday. I have repurchased this at least 3 times now. I know it is really expensive but well worth the cost IMO. They have a 60ml tube which is the most economical and practical, which i would recommend. My favourite base is this paired with the l'oreal lumi magique foundation, which allows me to wear a dewy foundation with out becoming overly shiny.
