Too waxy and heavy on face

I really don't like this product, not because it does not work, but because feels like I am smearing a thick wax all over my face. Then topping it with foundation feels like I am wearing a mask on my face, instead of a light fresh look that I rather have. It does make your makeup last all day, however, yet this is just too thick of a product for me.

favorite primer ever
Purchased

I love this primer. At 1st it was a little award learning how to use it where it blends in easily with my moisturizer & foundation. I blend the primer in with my finger tips & only use it in ny t-zone area & where my pores are the largest.. Avoid eyebrows, around the eye area & hair & neck lines. Use moisturizer in those avoided areas & blend in together. Also I use it on my lips & the fine lines around my mouth. It seems to keep my lipstick on & in place longer. I noticed I have less break outs after the 1st week of using this.

I'm buying it again
Purchased

I randomly bought this because it sold itself as light and a long wear item and I have been so pleased! As someone who doesn't wear much make up but still would like it to last, this had become part of my make-up arsenal. The primer is light, a great tint, and holds my make up in place all day. I'm buying again ASAP!

Waxy feeling on my face
Purchased

I really dislike this product. I normally am a fan of Benefit products, but this one left my face feeling waxy and I don't feel like it did the job it was meant to do. I expected a face primer to leave my skin feeling smooth and to reduce the appearence of my pores, but just made me feel like I had melted wax and put it on my face. My foundation didn't stay on any better or longer because of this and I just felt like my face had a lot of make up on because of the waxy feeling. I wish I could return it.

Odd texture

This primer works well and can honestly be worn alone. The texture does take getting used to!

Decent
Purchased

I love Benefit and I use mostly Benefit products, but this is not their best primer. It actually broke and fell onto the floor so I only used it for a few weeks.

It's dry and didn't really improve makeup staying power. Won't buy again.

Too thick
Purchased

Maybe I did not apply this correctly, but when trying to use this I put it on once and it was so incredibly thick on my face I took it off immediately. I prefer my makeup to be light and airy and this was too much for me. Haven't used it since.

Wasn't all that impressed

This primer is excellent if you want a matte finish but it dries out my skin really badly and ended up making my Estee lauder double wear foundation flake on my forehead.

I've been using it alone and it makes my skin feel soft and smooth:) a smooth shine is visible but in a good way! Makes your skin nice and gooey:)
