I'm surprised that this has such a high rating. I got this for the mattyfying and pore mimimising properties but I regret it. Maybe its the way I apply it but this does nothing for me. I have...

I really like Milani products so am disappointed to review this primer as a definite no-no. It is expensive for just 20ml of product (over in a jiffy) and doesn't 'hold' foundation in place. Within...

Of all the primers that I have tried, this is my favorite for my skin type. I find many primers do not help me. I have a very oily tzone and normal cheeks. This helps fight away shine in my oily...

My favorite drugstore primer. I have combination skin but it tends to get oily as the day goes on, and so I will have nice, shiny skin by the afternoon. This really helps my makeup stay put and...

This primer really does live up to its name! My pores are large mainly due to my skin being oily. This works a whole lot better than Benefit’s porefessional primer which I received a sample of. It...

good product, wish it was a little cheaper or had a bit more for the price. I have combination skin so I prefer to use this in the warmer months, I might switch to something more moisturising for...

ETA: I did try this full face as my primer with my WnW photofocus foundation - and it worked just "okay". It is very light, and is silicone-y but not in the greasy sense. When you apply it to your...

A go to bargain for me, so glad I decided to give this stuff a try. Feels just like the smashbox primer, and personally it works better than smashbox for me. Glides right on, very smoothing! My...

This is one of my favorite primers! It does a good job of mattifying the skin and making my pores smaller. It has a silicone feel once you rub it into your skin. I would say that this primer lasts...

This is just a very "meh" product for me. It's very similar to other silicone-based mattifying primers where they do mattify at first but they do nothing for absorbing oils and make the face feel...
