I bought this 3 days ago and have been blown away by this little gem! There are a number of options within the Hard Candy Primers, but I bought the anti shine one pictured in the main image on this page. In my experience this ranks better than Porefessional and definitely better than other drugstore brands. Actually keeps oil somewhat at bay (nearly impossible for me), has a great texture (not too silicone-y), and the best part is that it was only $8CAD! Definitely my go to for the foreseeable future.

I have used this product off and on for years. I first began using this product when there was only a small selection of primers at the drugstore. Despite the expansion of affordable primers at the drugstore, I still always come back to this primer. What I love most about this primer is the texture. It has a silicone-y feel to it, which makes it easier for my face products to glide on smoothly. I find that my face feels better and my skin looks better when I wear this primer. It also makes my makeup last longer, and prevents my foundation from getting splotchy throughout the day. The only con I can think of is the special formulas (I believe there's one for redness and one for oiliness) don't seem any different from the original formula. Other than that, I love this product! I really recommend it!

LOOOOVE this stuff! Absolutely would buy this again and I use it everyday! I find if you put too much on then it will make your face look caked full of makeup and you get little creases. So the key is to get a small amount and rub it gently all over your face. A small amount goes a long way with this stuff! I find after about 8 hours I do need some more powder on my T-zone because it starts to get that dewy look but I also have a naturally oily forehead and nose that I just can't avoid.

I adore this Sheer Envy Mattifying primer! It comes in an adorable tube that stands apart from my other face products. It's only $8 & I get 1.3oz, which is a bit more than other brands give me. I find the texture silky & fast-absorbing. I like the poreless effect it gives. I never use the other "mattifying" primer in my collection since discovering this! It helps my foundation last through the day w/no fading, blotchiness, or oily peek-through. I am amazed! W/my other primer, I had to blot at least once in a few hours. I only need a pea-sized drop, too.

I use the regular sheer envy all over my face, and then the shine-free one on my nose. And they keep my face products on all day. They make my foundation glide on, and keep oil at bay! I have small pores, but when I use this primer it makes my skin look airbrushed. Highly recommend for less than ten bucks!

This primer really doesn't do much for my pores which is a MUST if I am to like it.

PROS:
- makes for a smoother application of makeup

CONS:
- doesn't do too much for my pores
- does not do anything for shine control

Feels greasy at first but turns into a silky feeling. It doesn't break me out. Helps my makeup stay on longer and gives a great, even start for the makeup. I didn't really feel or see a problem with the texture.

I like the silicon feeling of this primer. It helps make my face smooth and helps my makeup glide on nicely and easily. It stays on for a while and after a full day of work my "face" is still on.
