I was recommended this product over and over again and viewed many positive reviews online, however I was not a fan!You have to be careful with how you apply this product, for me if I didn't tediously wait a while for it to dry it made my foundation go on WORST. It gives your skin a very velvety/silky feel for foundation application, but it definitely doesn't make your skin pore less or hide fine lines.

I bought the travel size of this product, which is in a user-friendly screw-top tube, so I can't comment on the packaging of the larger size. It didn't break out my dry, very sensitive skin, which is a plus. But... the second time I used it, I noticed that when I put powder and blush powder on top - after giving the primer plenty of time to dry - the powder rolled into a load of tiny balls. Yuck. So I had to sweep the mixture off with a brush and start over. I tried with liquid foundation over the primer, and the result was ok but no better than when I have no primer at all. Won't be repurchasing. It gets two stars because at least it didn't make my skin react.

I am a pretty much no-makeup kind of girl--powder and gloss, and that's it. I do need some mattifying throughout the day, because my Retin-A treated skin can get that "glassy" look if I don't put something on it. Lately I have even wanted to drop the powder--too much mess, not enough staying power, etc. So I recently tried this primer, and I have to say that it's doing what it needs to for me. It mattifies, evens out imperfections and gives me what I was getting from my MAC Blot Powder, except in a talc free, powder free format. I've been going with this primer and a swipe of gloss, and I have to say I really like it!

ok y did this prod win so many awards?! i did nothing for me. i'm always skeptical when ppl say this type of stuff works b/c i always feel they WANT to believe the hype. i did really want this to work b/c i've been searching forever for something to prolong the life of my foundation. i only trust the half face test, which i did, and even the girl who sold it to me couldn't tell which side i used it on b/c my make up faded on both sides equally! it made my skin softer for all of ten mins then it feels the same again. THIS DOES NOTHING and is a rip off. :*( i'm utterly disappointed.

First I thought ok this is going well under Dior Hydralight then next week when I saw that deeply lodged blackhead on my forehead...I thought this is the silicone spread I really thought about. Don't buy it its crappola.

Well, I must say I´m happy with it. It controls well my combination skin and makes my MAC Studio Finish foundation last all day long with no breakouts at all. Too pricy, maybe. Sephora´s similarily packaged primer worked almost the same on me for half it´s price.... And.. why doesn´t it close properly?????? !!!!!

I read many good reviews for this product and decided to try it. Picked up a small tube at Sephora and was regretting not just getting a sample. This stuff goes on very smooth, feels great to the fingers after you put it on. That's just about all i can say about it. Did it make a difference in how the make up lay down on my skin? NO, unless you consider my skin drying out within a couple hours and resulting flakes of cover-up a good difference. So yeah. It's sitting on my shelf, waiting for me to toss it. Very disappointing.

I'm fairly new to the use of primers & so far this is the best I've come across. I've used MAC Prep & Prime as well as Revlon's primer & I keep coming back to Smashbox. Be prepared to spend a pretty penny on this. I sometimes have problems dispensing the product; I have to hold the container a certain way to prevent the primer from going everywhere.

I bought this because of its great reviews, but I feel that my bronzer and blush does not last as long as when I don't have it on. My foundation goes on smoothly and my skin glows but I think it doesn't make my make up last. I will be doing and experiment; I will wear it on half of my face and none on the other half and wear it as long as I can in a day. I will be reviewing it again.

I just didn't think there was anything wow about this product. I have it in the bronzing formula but I usually forget to use it because there is no wow to remember to use it.
