This product is amazing! at first I didn't understand how to use it and it didn't work well, which it made me sad because it is a very expensive product. I needed a product that helped my makeup to...

As an extremely oily girl, I've tried out many primers that claim to control oils or minimize pores, I've tried everything from drug store to high-end, and none of them have been perfect. This...

As a 49 yo woman, this is HG status. It is by far THE best primer I've ever used. My only complaint is the price, which is steep at 39 USD. That said, they do make a smaller sample size which I get...

I am a little surprised by the seemingly low ratings on this, I thought it was kind of a much-hyped, much-favorited product..? Anyhoo.. I had tried many primers prior to this one. Pretty much...

I thought that I'd give this a try after having had a sample of the regular Smashbox primer and liking it. This couldn't be more different. It's very thick (think cement!) and goes onto the face...

Did see an improvement in pore size but broke my skin out and blocked up my pores; liked the finish under foundation but is too pricey for the effect it has on my skin.

I LOVE this stuff! To this day, it is the only primer that hasn't broken me out. I have acne-prone skin with noticeable pores, and although i lean dry, my skin can get oily. This blurs the pores...

Smash box usually knocks it out of the park, but I was left wanting on this product. The texture is a little greasy for my tastes and leaves a filmy feeling on my skin. I experimented with it...
