Here's the thing: I hate primers...but I *feel* like I should like them. The reason I hate them? They clog my skin and give me breakouts. I have tried several over the years - many of which I...

Goes on super smooth, fills in my pores and holds back the oil tide on my face quite well. Strange thing to note, the first part of the first pump of the day tends to go weird and pill on my face,...

Feels very silky and smooth on the face. It seems like it mattifies and fills in pores but that does not in fact happen. You get very little product compared to what it looks like.

I got this primer in the clear option, and it's a silicone-based primer, so I expected it to do something for oil control. However, it didn't. It made my makeup go on smoother, but it didn't help...

This primer isn't great, but isn't bad. It's my daily use primer just because it's cheaper but it really isn't all that. The packing is plain and boring which isn't a big deal but I definitely...

This is deceptive. The packaging is 0.5oz for $6USD. So most products are 1.0oz. So you are paying $12 for 1oz on par w L'Oréal or Physicians Formula, more expensive than Rimmel, Maybelline or...

I have extremely oily, acne prone skin. One advantage of this primer is that it never broke me out. The price is cheap, but as for the packaging even though it seems that it's filled entirely,...

This is a VERY siliconey primer and sadly for me, not one that suits my skin type (combo/hyper-sensitive). I was worried about putting this on my face because of that reason, as I've had bad...

This felt really heavy on my face, even heavier than my foundation, and it made everything else go on cakey. I see no benefit whatsoever to this primer, and it's not even a good deal for the amount...

I received this as a sample and tried it this morning; I must say that I'm absolutely loving this item and will surely purchase it in my next ELF haul. The texture is perfectly silky and glides...
