Undecided when it comes to this primer. On the plus side it is very smooth, goes on well. However, it has shimmer/glitter in it (why?!), I am not sure how good it is at making my makeup last...

This is by far the best primer I've tried. Other formulas have been too drying, too oily, or just without any benefit that I've noticed. This stuff goes on like a mattifying moisturizer, sinks in...

I bought this because I didn't know what else to get. I needed something that would moisturize and prep my face more than my usual lotion routine. Its not the worst product but its not something...

The MAC sales assistant conviced me and my Mum that this primer is best for oily skin and will stop oiliness as well as keep makeup on all day/night. However, it doesn't really stop the oiliness at...

I honestly do not like this as a primer. I'm an NC20 in MAC and daily I use Studio Sculpt. When I put on the primer my skin does not have that primer feel to it. I like my primer to have that...

I have been using this primer for a few months ago and i like it a lot. It makes my face really soft and my makeup goes on smoothly and stays on all day.

This is my favourite primer! I've used 2/3 other primers and they didn't work too well on my skin (combination, slightly more dry). It gives this airbrush and matt finish which is gorgeous. It...

I love this primer. Don't know why people are saying it has shimmer or glitter in it, there's none in mine. Holds my makeup in place all day, especially when used in conjunction with my MAC...

I love this primer. Feels smooth, cool and is a wonderful base for make up. While it does not eliminate the oil spill on my face, it does reduce it immensely. My only gripe with this product is...
