I wish I would have read the reviews here before I bought this, dollar store brand makeup is better than this stuff. It has no pigmentation to it, I don't know how it can look so pretty in the pan. At best this might be a shimmery highlight for someone very pale. Very disappointing, back it will go.

I can't imagine ever using anything else ever again. This stuff, in my opinion, works better than Bi-Facils, is less oily than Bi Facils, and is a third of the cost. It doesn't irritate my eyes in the least and is fast and effective. I'd never heard of it before, I just picked it up on a whim at Ulta a couple weeks ago. So glad I did!

I had about a three day sample of this and have decided that I like it enough to buy a full sized tube. It does go on light and silky, no greasy feel and virtually odorless. So at work every time I use the bathroom I blot my face because it's always greasy (I currently use Smashbox Primer Light, it's okish) And I always look at the blotting paper to see how much oil came off my face. There was definitely less oil than usual that first day, and the next day I did the same thing and the results were the same, I think there was even less oil than the day before, and the third day as well. So so far I'm pleased with the product and I will be buying a tube tomorrow and see if it continues to work as the weather gets warmer. It can't be any worse than anything else I've tried.
I am very oily and have never found a product that's done anything to control the oilies until this. I don't know what it is about this particular primer that makes it work for me, but I can't stop raving about this stuff! It goes on like liquid silk. I've found it works better(for me) to kinda put on a heavier application than recommended, and then let dry. My foundation and blush stay on all day which has never happened in all my life. I do not think it makes my pores look smaller, but it absolutely gives me a smoother more polished look overall. I'll be happy to plunk down the dollars for more when this bottle run out!

I've only used this as a leave-in but nothing else leaves my hair so soft. The scent is good and a little goes a long way. For reference I have dry ethnic hair so I can use products that some feel are "heavy" or "coating".
Of the zillion mascaras I have tried, this still tends to be (one of) my faves. I get a lot of " Are those your real lashes?" when I do wear this. Adds a lot volume but I really wish it were darker. On me it looks like a dull black which I hate. I use this over my Estee Lauder lash primer which is also an all time fave. Hypnose also does not hold a curl well. A cheaper just about as good mascara is Cover Girl's Lash Blast, but that stuff flaked a lot.

After reading so much about this I finally got my hands on some and I must say that this is some pretty amazing stuff. Totally worth the $15 ( and the 2 1/2 hour drive!) I was really impressed with how well my shadow stayed on and in place throughout a long day and a nap! I did have a small amount of creasing by after several hours but compared to anything else I've ever tried, who cares! I have very oily skin and no other primer for eyes or face has ever done anything but slid right off. I would prefer it to be packaged in jar or something but i definately will buy again.
