not really sure what this was all about? the formula does go on smooth and maybe fills creases and fine lines but it was just like a matte coat. not sure if i was using this correctly or what!

Just Okay

I find it kind of slimy.
I don't really see a difference, but when applying foundation it feels like it goes on a but smoother.
It's not something that I see myself using a lot.

Beauty Must Have

I LOVE this product! I have super dry skin, so getting makeup on without it looking cakey is a challenge. This helps it glide on and stay ALL DAY!

After receiving the sample I quickly bought the full size. Silky and provides a great barrier, makes makeup application easy! Didn't disrupt my skin at all!

Best primer
Sampled

This is my all time favorite primer. It goes on so smooth and absorbs perfectly and I am always thrilled with the coverage of my powder or concealer afterwards. I can definitely tell a difference between when I've used this primer or not. I also like that Smashbox has multiple types of this primer.

Best priner ever!!

This right here is my HG primer!! It's hands down the best I have used for my oily skin. It's very smooth and silky, non runny and it leaves my skin very smooth and perfectly matte ready for the foundation. I love it!

You can always rely on Smashbox when it comes to makeup. Applying this before my foundation makes a huge difference in how everything jives together. Using this primer helps my foundation to go on flawlessly, and helps blush to really stay on all day. I will for sure continue to use this product or another variation of Smashbox's primers in the future.
