I use this in place of buying my regular lancome primer, trying to save money and wanted to buy something smaller too. I use this 5 days a week, and one of the small "sample/trial" size containers...

I originally purchased the Hydrating primer because I have dry skin but hated it, did nothing for me, foundation went on very cakey and made my foundation wear off even faster. I saw this...

I love this primer! My skin is very oily in the tzone but parched on my cheeks and under the eyes. This hides my pores, keeps me matte but isn't too dry for my dry zones. My makeup lasts forever...

God I hate this stuff so much and Ulta always gives this out as their sample with my orders ughh (and Porefessional, but at least I like that primer). I always just throw away these samples...

It does help hold my makeup in place very well. There is no loss of foundation or anything. The silicone feel is nice and rubs on very smoothly. I do think that it is overpriced for what it does....

https://youtu.be/Llsu6f7fiic I bought a giant tube of this stuff back in the day, but never really fell in love with it. When you first apply it it feels super smoothing and silicone-y and it...

This was a blogger/vlogger favourite during the period of 2012- early 2015 approximately because of this, this became one of the most popular primers globally! Due to this when I found out it...
