I have very large pores around my nose area, the only product and my HG silicone based primer is the Bioderma Sebium Pore Refiner. As much as I love Too Faced Hangover Rx primer, this one does not work as well. The consistency is thick, pretty "dry" and siliconey, which I don't mind. You need literally the smallest amount for the whole face. I recommend applying it like a moisturizer and then "patting" so it would settle in pores and won't look streaky.
It doesn't prolong the wear of my foundation- at least not as well as my Sebium primer- but makes it go on a lot more smoother! It doesn't have mattifying properties so oily skins may not like it.
It didn't break me out, which can happen with many silicone based primers.
The packaging is gorgeous, as usual with TF... But the product itself is just average.

This stuff is pretty good in terms of primers if you like that matte oily feeling all over your face. It's okay because it goes away after you put foundation on and it does keep it on there for most of the day so credit where credit is due.

It didn't make my pores smaller or look smaller or anything but I guess it's not God so I'm not gonna have a go at it about that. The other thing is that it's not going to keep that foundation staying on your nose so don't even ask it to.

Look in all honesty I wasn't blown away by it but I wasn't disappointed either. It's a good primer but what it claims to do, cheaper primers can do the same if not better.

I'm actually really sad about not enjoying this product, because it seemed good when I tried it at Sephora. What I love about this primer is that the packaging is adorable - as is every product Too Faced creates. It is also easy to spread. Now... what I dislike about this is that it feels a little oily once I've spread it all over my face and blended it evenly. Also, it has this distinct smell to it that I didn't notice when I first tried it whilst shopping -- quite a huge turn off for me. It does its job as a primer, but with its price tag as such, I just don't see myself buying this again.

I am 47 years old and I use this product with no other foundation. It makes my skin look smooth and really dimenishes the appearance of pores. The light tint makes it blend perfectly. I will add concealer for any blemishes and I'm out the door. It goes on smoothly -doesn't flake or cause breakouts. It's my favorite product.

I recently bought this in the hope of experiencing the poreless effect of this. This is like a Smashbox silicone primer that maybe won't give breakouts. Sadly the blurring effect is not a WOW but more of a meh factor that didn't last throughout the day. I kind of regretted using this because it made my face look shiny later during the day that actually accentuated my pores more. I was so annoyed for spending a lot for something that didn't come close to its claims. Also the tube was not full and not sealed in any way, but just came in a box.

To be honest, I wasn't blown away or impressed with this product. It does its job as a primer, my foundation lasts nicely underneath it, maybe not for a longer time period but it makes some sort of difference.
It is ridiculously expensive, has a weird powdery/paste like texture that almost completely disappears on the skin and there's not very much product in the tube.
I did like that it was easy to blend and felt soft on the skin, however, there are drugstore primers for a fifth of the price that will do this job.
I was mostly disappointed that the name is "Primed and Poreless" and yet my pores were just as visible as they were before application, maybe even more visible.
I didn't notice it make a difference to my foundation in terms of better coverage, as the sales girl said it would. I was sold on the idea that it made pores invisible under foundation, unfortunately it just didn't work for me.

So this primer is great. It leaves my skin silky smooth and my makeup looks beautiful. BUT - it was so expensive and when I held the bottle to the light, I could see that only half the container was full. Half! They trick you with the bottle to make you think you're buying more. Yeah, I know, I know, it says how many fluid oz on the front but really??? It's like buying chips but half the bags air. Anyways, other than that, love it.

**Recent update** So this product is still amazing if you don't have acne prone skin that hates coconuts you should read this information. I have recently discovered that over time after a year my skin is becoming more clogged and irritated. I realized this is contributing to it because in the ingredient list it has " Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Phenoxyethanol". They are higher up on the lists and they are coconut derivatives. I have learned that because my skin has severe painful break outs from straight up coconut oil. While coconut derivatives do not cause the severe break outs, they are considered general irritants. I have concluded this primer only adds irritation for me. If you suspect your skin is like mine please check out this site for a list of all potential coconut offender ingredients. https://www.reddit.com/r/SkincareAddiction/comments/1dd5ov/psa_for_my_fellow_sensitive_skin_types_regarding/

An alternative primer that I have found to this is lise watier base miracle. It contains no coconut derivates, no pore clogging ingredients and as a bonusthe few amount of ingredients as possible I've ever seen for a primer.

Update: I can definitely tell when I'm not wearing this Primer, I tried to use others... and my foundation slides off my face after!! This is the only thing on earth that makes my foundation stay on where I don't look like a tomato at the end of the day!!

I am very picky when it comes to makeup, a lot of things don't work on me.. I have oily skin and also dry at the same time, with acne and redness, and it's very sensitive to full cake face makeup so. This primer scared me a bit at first before I got it, my previous one was Hourglass No28 primer... it was way too oily and kinda broke me out and never did much. I used to think primers were just meh.

I don't know if there is such a thing as putting on too much.. so I don't know what people are complaining about.. granted I only use around a dime sized, but it feels soooo smooth and not gross at all that I literally just wanna coat my entire face in it... but I know better not to waste so much! ;)

Now this primer is a whole different story! #1 It doesn't break me out!! This doesn't make my face look like completely photo shopped but... pretty damn close to it! It gives a nice polished put together look, never knew my foundation could look better on me... I'm impressed.

But what completely sold me is that no matter how much heavy duty concealer or foundation I put on my chin that's super red, it will ALWAYS come through sooner or later despite what I do. I kind of figured that I could never get around that ever.. for years. Until I used this primer, I don't know what sort of magic it does, but it GOT RID OF MY REDNESS WHEN I APPLIED MY MAKEUP AND IT NEVER SHOWS THROUGH THE ENTIRE DAY!! This is amazing. I was always conscious of my redness showing through the day but this changed everything for me. I would recommend topping off with a setting powder if you're oily like me... but even once I forgot to set it, and I went out to a club, my face still looked great.

Once again I am very picky, and things don't usually last too long on me, and yes I have acne/redness. If you read this, what are you waiting for.... go out and get it! Or at the very least try a sample! Hopefully it works for you.
