Yipe. This was a free sample and I tried it out this morning. The primer went over The Ordinary 2.5% BHA and Olay day moisturizer with SPF. Right away I had misgivings--it didn't have much slip at...

After finishing a deluxe sample of this primer, I must say that I don't really care for it. It didn't seem to work that well, and it smelled bad. Maybe I got a bad batch, but I didn't like the...

This is the first primer I've ever owned, and I never realised how terrible it was until I branched out to other products. Does it prolong makeup wear? No. Does it create a smooth canvas? No....

I received a free tube with the purchase of the translucent powder which by the way is wonderful. This primer however was a disappointment. It does nothing for the skin and doesn't make my...

I break out from this product. It does nothing for my foundation lasting what so ever.

Best primer I have tried! I have the oil free one as I have oily skin but gives me foundation longer wear and hold. Recommend it!

Nothing special about this primer as far as I could tell, and the staying power isn't great. But it didn't break me out and plays well with the tinted moisturizer.

It did help smooth my skin and blur pores and imperfections but I have oily skin and it broke me out and made my skin really oily by the end of the day. My nose was shiny AF! I only used it cuz my...
