I love this product don't get me wrong! Although of course I had a few problems.

The good stuff is that it makes my makeup look beautiful! I use it everyday for school and I'm a high school student so it stays on through everything! Even PE! I used to put this on after my moisturizer then apply my MAC Studio Fix Powder in NC42, because I didn't need much coverage at school. Then now I started using it with my Neutrogena Healthy Skin Foundation in Natural Tan and it keeps it on ALL day. It's amazing !

Now, the bad ): Of course the price. It kills me! I thought I had ran out after 3 months so I was about to just back to mac it and say whatever. Then I forgot how much it was and checked again. $30. Like most primers, but I was just so upset! :( I'm middle class but I don't have enough money to buy this product all the time. I was sad so I just left it in my makeup and didn't touch it. After 2 more months (which is now) I was starring at it and I wanted to use it. I thought of something! I realized that the packaging it soo bad. It's weirdly shaped and hard to squeeze out and the amount is like WTH that's not as much product as i thought! SO what i did was I decided to CUT IT UP. Yup! I cut it open and then I put it in 2 pots ! I filled 2 pots!

Now it's going to last me 3 more months! :D I believe so at least. I LOVE THIS <3
