It works really well at minimizing pores and smoothing the skin's surface! However I believe this is breaking me out, I have been using it for about two weeks and I noticed some cystic-like bumps on my forehead. I do not usually have that problem with my skin. It is the only new product I have been applying in that area so I'm pretty sure this is it. It is very silicony and thick, I feel like it clogs my pores. PROS:- Great base for foundation- Smooths skin and minimizes pores- No smellCONS:- Breaks me out- Expensive- Possibly clogs pores

I got this as a sample a long time ago and only recently used it. I don't know if this is the same one posted here because the one I have been using has SPF 20 in it. I like that it has an SPF, but otherwise this product seems pretty useless. It would take a long time to absorb into the skin, which does not work for when I'm on the go in the morning. It also didn't seem to actually improve the look of neither my skin nor my makeup, and it didn't make my foundation stick any more than when I didn't wear the primer. I used the whole sample, and it was hugely disappointing, because I'm a fan of Nars, but it seems there are much better primers out there.

I was given half a tube of this primer after my sister decided she didn't want it anymore. I've been using it on/off for about 2 years now and I can't say that I'm very impressed by this product. It basically feels like a regular serum/moisturizer.. which moisturizes just okay. I don't feel that it holds my makeup as well as other products (e.g. Sofina Primavista base, MAC blot powder)... it just doesn't do very much at all - no microblurring, oil control, etc. Plus I suspect that it breaks me out a bit as my skin is always a bit worse afterwards. I will not be repurchasing this primer.

I got a sample of this primer & I've been using it for a while. It's oil free which is nice but it doesn't feel like most primers I have used before. Its kind of a liquidy formula that just dries onto skin and doesn't make you foundation apply a any smoother. It didn't seem to make my makeup last longer or do anything at all. I would not purchase the full size.

i love this primer so much! it was the first primer i ever bought and it was love at first use. i never used primers mostly because they make me breakout, ive been trying out some drug store brands and that was a horrible mistake. the NARS primer is infused with lavender to help keep the skin calm and radiant....i can never use anything else, it controls oil pretty good but doesnt keep your makeup lasting until the evening. overall if you need a primer that wont make you make out this is a good one

I've never tried a silicone primer before so I don't really know what the benefits of one would be. This is a very rich sooothing primer... based on reviews it seems like people thinki of it as more of a moisturizer..I personally love it.. I have somewhat sensitive skin and this is a very calming barrier between my makeup and my pores. I get laser hair treatments and after that my face is very blotchy and somewhat hive-y, I've recently started putting this on after my moisturizer and find that i've been healing WAY faster than I normally did.I'm on my last few drops of this primer and just recently bought Nars Oil free primer... If that one isn't up to par i'll come back to this product!

I received this in a swap so I can't comment on the price. I never been that into primers before, but this makes my pores dissapear and make my face so smooth. I do notice a difference when I use this. But I don't think it helps with making my MU longer lasting. I am very pleased with this primer but can't really compare to others because I haven't tried any yet .

Really disappointed in this product. It has done nothing to help my foundation sit or stay on for longer. I only use it now when I am going down to the shops or somewhere unimportant just so I can finish it and buy something else.

This product is a fine primer for me. It makes my skin very smooth and seemingly pore -less. It makes my foundation go on smoother but, it doesn't make my foundation last as long as it should for the price. But I don't have oily skin so it isn't essential for me to have a primer in the first place. I do like this product and I think it is a fine primer.

i did not like this product at all. Im more into a silicone primer and this primer felt like i was applying a moisturizer on my face. I didnt notice that it helped my makeup last longer and it did make me break out. i didnt use the whole bottle and from what i remember it was about 35-40.00 which is pretty expensive to me. Will not be buying again
