Makes u look like a ghost if overapplied but if underapplied how effective is it? One star for the pleasant smell and one for the zinc oxide..JI needs to rethink this product for sure

This is my favorite primer so far. Yes it takes getting use to. I apply ONLY to the spots I want to minimize my pores using a foundation brush. It takes VERY little and feels great on my skin, I actually don't even notice it. One thing I've noticed is that it tends to build up and takes some effort to remove thoroughly. Exfoliation will show you the product was not removed with washing …Read more

I'm afraid I did not like this at all.
Couldn't apply it well enough to my skin.
Made me look quite ghosty and greasy.
Didn't 'get' this product at all.
Disappointed as JI products are generally quite good.

Ehhhhh I'm still on the fence for this product. I've been using it for a couple of days, each time trying a different application technique. I have only been using a VERY small amount of the primer and applying it with a foundation brush, using a criss-cross motion (following the directions)...it does make my skin soft (and thus making it easier to apply foundation)....but it just feels …Read more

I am really on the fence with this product. At first I didn't love it enough to keep using it, and thought it smelled like waxy old lady makeup, so it sat in my kit for a couple years. I've worn it the past couple days and notice that it does give my mineral foundation more oomph - a little more coverage for my sun damaged skin, and helps my cheap-o e.l.f. $5 mineral concealer blend …Read more

My sister actually bought this a few years ago, and never used it i guess! I found it one day in her old makeup box and decided to give it a go, since my skin is soooo incredibly oily ( i go through those Clean n clear blotting tissues almost hourly).

I have golden toned half asian, half white (hapa) skin, and this is a dark color in the container (abscense 2) so i touched it with my …

It does its job as oil control primer. Also good for sensitive, acne-prone skin. The only primer, I believe, that doesn't break me out.

The problem I have on this is that the primer CAN look ashy on medium skintones, so be careful on how much you put on your face. Usually a small amount or a gentle swipe w/ a brush will be enough for the whole face.

And also, the …

I have very sensitive skin and most make-up products make me breakout, not Absence!
Besides, Absence protect my skin from other products!!!
For example, Flawless foundation Lumiere after Absabce was ok, but when I try it directly to my skin - I got a problems immediately.

The only moment I was surprised: It is very light or very dark (only 2 colors). For my fairy skintone …

I apply Absense with a foundation brush on my t-zone before I apply the JI Pure Pressed foundation. It really helps to mattify any shine and creates a smooth canvas for me to apply my foundation. I don't think it's drying at all, unless you apply too much.

I love this product in conjunction with the JI PurePressed Base. Most of the time I'm too lazy to put it on - if I'm running out the door I just grab my compact and mini kabuki. But, on the days where I take my time to put my makeup on, I never skip this product. You need the smallest amount. I apply it with my fingers because the heat from your hand helps the product melt into your …Read more
