I've been using this for about a week and am still getting used to the application. It's important to definitely smooth with your fingers to make sure you've covered your entire face, and you have to put your foundation on very shortly after or the primer will kind of solidify. When this happens, I've noticed some discoloration/unevenness. Having said that, as long as you follow the directions, this primer mattifies and locks in make-up very well.

I won't buy this primer again.

I do not think this lasts 15 hours! By the end of my workday (8 hours) all of my face make-up has vanished. Really bummed, because all the reviews says it does last that long. I love benefit too!

Love it so far

I have very oily skin and have tried other primers. This one is the best I've tried. My makeup looks nearly perfect at the end of the day. Highly recommend!

Love this primer!

My make up stays put all day. My days involves a lot of movement and sweat too, so I was extra impressed!
My skin looks flawless with this primer. I have very sensitive skin and am prone to breakouts so I was happy that this product keeps my skin looking great.

A Necessity!!!
Purchased

I was a little wary when this product promised make-up placement for 15 hours, but it does not fail! I couldn't believe how fresh and beautiful my make-up looked throughout the hot, summer workday. This is by far one of the best beauty products I have ever purchased. If you want your make-up to stay and look fresh all day long, this is a necessity!

Just Not For Me

I did not like this primer at all. Once I put it on it felt tacky but I was still willing to give it a shot. My foundation went on ok, nothing special. But a few hours later I checked my face in a mirror and I was a complete oil slick! It was disgusting! I guess this primer is not meant for oily skin it'll make you even more oily! I do not recommend.

True to Claims

I'm happy with this primer. I have to admit that I was not a pro on my first application. Its important to blend it evenly over your face. It really locks in your makeup, so you should check for any places where it is too thick.

Long lasting primer!
Purchased

I just purchased this and it is my first time using it. It feels amazing when you put it on. It has a cooling, semi-tingling feeling. I would recommend applying in sections so the primer doesn't set before you can apply your foundation. I followed the instructions on the paper that was in the box and it said to use your fingers which I found to be more helpful than a brush but that's my preference. I would recommend buying this primer.

was very skeptical when i bought it because of some mixed reviews i read but i love this product! it seems there is a very specific way in which it should be used but if you use it right you will definitely get the 15 hours of it and it makes my complexion better than with foundation alone. also hasnt caused any skin problems :)

I wanted to love this product because I have heard so many good things about it but It just didnt work for me. It made my foundation splotty and it didnt move well so it was hard to blend. I did small sections as they suggest and I stll couldnt get it to work for me. I have normal/dry skin.
