So far this is my favorite primer/base!

Pros:
-Blurs pores & smooths out texture, immediately.
-The little glass jar is super cute!
-It is on the thicker side, but once you warm it up, it applies easily(I use a Q-Tip to get the product out, instead of my fingers).
-Feels silky/velvety on skin

Cons:
-Pricey for such a tiny jar. I don't use it …

Loved this stuff to begin with, as it was great with blurring large pores and smoothing over acne scars to create a uniform canvas for my foundation. Unfortunately it made me break out in HUGE cystic acne, and nothing else has ever done that before to me. Needless to say, I won't be repurchasing.

This isn't a "dupe" for a high end primer - this is a high end primer! Loreal owns almost every cosmetic company out there -- including many high end brands and they make the cosmetics for these high end brands. With that said - what difference does the packaging make? This stuff works. The way I use it is I put my skincare on first - serums for example, no sunscreen, then I tap …Read more

So I'm also looking for a good primer. This one is a proper dupe for Tarte's smoothing primer. It's surprising not a bad primer at all. Mousse like consistency. I pat this over my T zone only. My foundation wear well over this primer. No offensive fragrance. No breakouts. It's just in a jar, and it get under my nails when I scoop out the product. L'Oreal needs …Read more

I heard many say this product is a dupe for many high-end primers. I had to try it. The price is right. The jar is quite small but you really don't need alot of product. The smell is very light and almost no smell.

The product is thick when applied. It is very moisturizing and appeared to full in fine lines and pores, but after less than 6 hours this separated on my face …

As a makeup junkie, I must tell you that this is a hidden gem in the world of drugstore makeup.

For one, I am someone who suffers from old acne scars (i.e. pit scars, box and rolling scars) and used to buy the Clarins Instant Smooth Primer and would pay $ 38.00 per jar. Mind you, it lasted me for so long but having to spend that money on a primer was just too much for me considering I …

I would not buy this again. I was actually really disappointed with this. The primer did have a nice texture, but when applying it on my face It balled up. Didn't spread out smoothly. I was wearing L'oreal's Pro-matte foundation & made it look really patchy. Just an awful mess =(

I've had this product for quite a long time and didn't really like it very much at first. But.... I've used it more recently and it's (IMO) comparable to, if not better than, the Gerovital H3 Evolution primer and also the Hylamide HA Blur.

Actually I like using this more and have recently discovered this is also an excellent eyelid primer!

Like many, I …

Your pores do vanish! But the next day they flare up and turn into acne. I have good skin to begin with so beware it clogs pores like no other.
