This stuff is horrible. First of all, it's SO expensive and does nothing... It didn't make my makeup last longer And it didn't keep me matte either. I went through a phase where my skin was oily...

I received a sample size version of this from Sephora, it went on and worked like any other primer, didn't really find anything special about it

This primer is just... meh. I don't really see a difference on my face. Sometimes I feel like it makes my face more oily than it already is, which makes my foundation "melt" off quick. If you want...
