Great primer for normal skin
Purchased

I have oily skin and was hoping this primer would work a little better on controlling my shine but overall am really happy with the product. It definitely makes your foundation stay all day long and feels smooth when you apply it on your face. I would recommend this product to anyone but feel that it would work best on normal skin.

Love it!

I just received this after almost buying it at Ulta. I LOVED it! Makes my make up look so pretty and sometimes I dot even need to wear foundation when I put this on!

Easy to use primer that actually lasts

Helps to control oil.. The nylon-12 in it allows foundation and other makeup to adhere and last a full 15 hours.. It's best to use your fingers to rub it in after applying it to your face to prevent any stickiness.. Your makeup will really last and it's great for any skin tone/type! You can also pair it with other primers, such as Porefessional

Disappointed - Clumpy foundation

Am I missing something? Everyone seems to love this primer and application is supposedly straightforward, however, I've tried this a couple of times and am still not able to get the "flawless" finish. I've tried rolling it on, applying in a circular motion, rubbing it in, with and without moisturizers and the result is always the same: my foundation clumps up. I tried applying my foundation in small areas because this primer seems to make it dry quicker, but it doesn't help much.

I think I'd save more time by just applying my makeup again later in the day than trying to get an even foundation finish with this primer. Any suggestions on how to use this better are greatly appreciated - otherwise, this is going back!

Worth the price!

Amazing primer!! Worth the price. It made the concealer I put under my eyes not clump up and stay on longer.

Great Primer

Amazing primer, received a sample thru ulta and loved it. Applies perfectly and makes your skin feel great. Would love a sample from Birchbox.

DOES THE JOB !!

I absolutely love this product. It makes my makeup look brighter, stays on real good ( no more film on my phone) and is really humidity resistant and water resistant. You just need to make sure you keep the little plastic topper under the cap on it when you are not using it and blend it in before you put your makeup on. This is also one of the few times that I recommend blending any liquid foundation in with your fingers because it really helps it to stay.

Everything it promises to be!

What a fab product! I love the gel formula, and having it in stick form makes application super-easy. It really does keep your makeup in place!
