Was so excited to try this and bought it right when it came out. I liked the consistency, at first. It does indeed make my foundation last all day! BUT its so sticky and glue-like that it really only worked well with a liquid foundation (something blendable) and I found that the stick application wasn't the greatest because I still had to even it out with my fingers. If I used a cream or powder foundation it would stick right to the primer and be hard to blend, so that was frustrating. Also, the day after getting it, it had 2 cracks in the stick and was breaking off. I was bummed!

A good primer

I think this primer is great but I think it only works well was liquid foundation. My other foundations made my skins feel dry after a few hours.

Cute Packaging, Bad Formula

I had very high hopes for this product. I have always been a Benefit girl. I've used mascaras, eyeshadows, high beam, the foundations, gift sets and yada yada you get the picture. I loved the cute packaging and actually squealed when I first saw it. NO NO NO NO NO and again NO! Cute polka-dot packaging aside, the product formula was a flop.For $$$$ that it costs I was very disappointed... It is hard to swipe onto your skin, it feels think like a dryish paste after you finally swipe it, it isn't blendable to be able to say put a swipe across your forehead and blend out to the rest of the forehead. No. It stays in the only place you put it. Once I put my foundation over top of it, it caked my foundation up so much that my brush wouldn't blend it out and I tried my fingers only to find that I had to use quite a bit of force to uncake my foundation. I will not be repurchasing this product....

Best. Primer. Ever.

This has replaced all other primers for me, it's long-lasting and my skin looks and feels great. I love the stick application. This one is a keeper.

A great primer for humid days!

This primer goes on really smooth, blends with my foundation well and does not look cake-y. I use a liquid foundation and it also allows me to build it up if I need extra coverage that day. It did take a few tries for me to get used to the application process but once I got the hang of it I loved it.

Amazing

I am currently wearing this product now. I ordered it a week ago and can't understand how I have survived without it all these years. I have used other primers before, none have been quite as satisfying as this one. I do have one concern though, do I need to let it dry for awhile after application? I usually wait a minute or two but when applying my concealer, it tends to clump up in some areas. Other than that concern, I love it - simply because it does what it say it will do. My makeup stays looking fresh throughout the day, which is very important to me considering I have VERY oily/shiny skin. Great, great, GREAT product!
