Not for Me
Sampled

I like the idea of foundation primers, but this one felt very greasy and made my skin feel oily. I didn't think it really helped my foundation go on any smoother either. Not a fan.

Love it!
Sampled

I don't wear foundation daily, but I do love a good primer to give my sometimes -oily skin a matte finish. This feels wonderful to put on, then is completely gone, leaving behind a very flattering matte. It lasts all day, too.

A Whole New World!

I have never used a primer before I received this sample. Having drying skin, the primer does wonders! My makeup is smooth even after a whole day of working and traveling in the city!

Goopy and Heavy feeling
Sampled

I was not a fan of the primer. I wanted to love it, as primers are fantastic. But I didn't like the way it felt on my face. It felt goopy and heavy on my skin. I also didn't notice enough of a difference to find it worth it's price tag.

This is the only primer I use
Sampled

It's pricey, sure, but a little bit goes a long way. I only use it with heavier foundations, but I find that it really helps prevent flaking. I have very dry, sensitive skin but this stuff really does prevent creasing, too. Love it.

I really like this as a primer. Doesn't feel greasy or weird like some others I've used.

Great product, but didn't stand out
Sampled

I really did like this primer, but I didn't find it to be any better than the ones I've used in the past. I might pick it up if I was shopping for primer and spotted it in the store, but I would be just as likely to grab several other brands I've used.

This primer is fantastic! When I use it my makeup stays in place all day long, and its so smooth to apply. I love it!

Good for Dry Skin
Sampled

Personally this product was a little too moisturizing for my skin. I have really combination skin. I have dry spots but can get oily throughout the day. This product did a great job of keeping my makeup on but I did notice that it made my face very shiny throughout the day. I think it would work better for someone with seriously dry skin.

Great Primer!

I have really dry skin and at 29 I am looking to take any preventitive methods for aging possible- so this was the ideal sample for me- I do however wish the sample came with a pump and i didnt have to put my hands in the jar!!
