I only got a sample, tried it once and threw it out so my rating for price and packaging are average in an attempt at fairness. I have no idea what the price or packaging is like. Those ratings are based solely on my knowledge of the brand. However, the product itself is lovely if you like a really silicone-ish feel, horrible if you don't. I'm in the latter group. It made my skin look …Read more

O-M-G this stuff is ridiculously OVER priced! Its literally half the size of an average mascara in length and atleast a quarter less in diameter too & retails for $42!!!! I can't believe I paid so much for something the size of my pinky :O But anyways, I was getting desperate for finding the IDEAL primer to mix my KA SSE to get the flawless face everyone raves about, so decided why not …Read more

Unfortunately, this product is outstanding. The price is exorbitant but if you are like me and have to wear KA's SSE, this will make it stick. I used the Chanel white primer and it would slide right off my face so I finally broke down and bought this. I'm glad I did as it really works to cover up an unpleasant scar on my chin.

Will grudgingly shell out the money to buy it …

I actually like this primer under all of my foundations...especially during the chillier months since my skin tends to be on the more dehydrated side. It gives me just that last touch of moisture that I need without it being too much. It dries to a smooth finish and absorbs nicely.

I do notice that my foundations last longer. Normally any blush no matter the brand or texture NEVER …

I had heard wonderful things about this primer. I have the SSE foundation and love it, so naturally I thought I would be thrilled with this primer. And I was for a little while. I will stand by my review and say that this primer is amazing. My makeup lasted ALL day and never separated. It made my makeup look less like makeup and more like flawless skin and that is saying something for me. …Read more

This product is just not worth the high price tag. I have found others, quite less expensive, that work as well. Sephora Brand Smoothing Primer is an excellent choice at a fraction of the price. Unless you find that the benefits are unsurpassable for you, I would suggest saving your money. I dont't mean to knock the procuct because I love KA products and swear by many....this is just not …Read more

I usually loathe primers and their awful silicone slip. Aucoin's, however, is different, and feels more like a light moisturizer. This is the only primer I've found that really binds foundation to my skin, makes it go on smoothly and beautifully, and keeps it looking fresh for ages. I especially like it paired with SSX, but it seems to work well with all the foundations I've …Read more

I've been on the hunt for a good primer which would work on my oily skin. This primer is light and not a heavy silicone feel like Smashbox. Two pumps is all I need to do my whole face. Makeup goes on evenly and smoothly and holds up well throughout the day. I took off one lippie because it's a tiny pump container and there's no way to tell when you are running out.

OK, so I like this product. It's silicon based so it makes my GA LSF glide on even more smoothly, but this is pretty expensive and you don't get much product. I might try Laura Mercier's oil-free primer before I decide to repurchase this one.

I have started my search for the perfect primer a month ago, so far I have tried SmashBox, BareEscental, DHC, ShuUmera, and KA. The former 3 are silicone based, I find that BE has less silicone in it than SB and DHC, which works for me, since I hate the feeling of not being able to let my skin breathes. ShuUmera is a mousse form with a slight tint of color, it's a little too moisturizing …Read more
