I have large pores. This help all my makeup just glide on and look smooth. I still get oily by mid day but my makeup stays on and I just blot the oil.

Not as happy as I hoped to be.
Purchased

I bought this because my makeup would always wear off by lunchtime and I was hoping this would help. I've used other primers in the past that worked decently, but nothing I loved. This one goes on nice and feels nice going on, but I don't feel it does anything to help keep my makeup on. I see no difference on days I wear it from days I don't. :( The packaging is nice and the product feels nice, but I'm disappointed it doesn't do what it's supposed to do.

I have normal to oily skin, if that matters.

A make-up artist told me this is her secret weapon. I use it under my BB or CC cream and my skin looks flawless

Face Primer

I've never tried primer but am very happy with this one. It's nice and lightweight. The size was small but only a little goes a long way.

It works very well, but I havent found a big difference between this and those of lower prices. I would try it, but if the cost is too much it works just as well as similar products by other name brands

Average

Goes on smooth and silky, helps makeup apply very smoothly. But really doesn't stand out from any other silicone based powdery finish primer that I have tried, maybe requires using less product than othets so thats a value. Not at all convinced it does anything to minimize look of pores. Feels like my normally rather dry skin gets oily an hour after my makeup is finished and acutally makes my foundation last less long. But that could just be me and my foundation, and tends to be my usual experience with this type of primer.

very nice product

It is a great value for the price. It works well in helping the foundation blend better and last. I found that it does not cause my skin to breakout yet which is important.

LOVE THIS but clogs pores.
Sampled

Love this stuff. Made my face look like velvet. Definitely covers flaws, scarring and is a great primer. If you have sensitive skin, this will definitely clog the pores and cause breakouts. I only use it for special occasions and I make sure to wash off as soon as possible.
