A great primer for humid days!
Purchased

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
Purchased

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!

Feels like chapstick on your face

I hated this stuff - maybe it's okay for some, but I felt like I was coating my face in waxy chapstick. I returned immediately.

15 Hour Primer
Purchased

I am a huge fan of Benefit and this product is just as awesome as I thought it would be. My makeup stays on all day when I use the primer and I have a lot of trouble with my makeup staying put. I highly recommend this product!

Works great-broke me out though
Purchased

Not sure why but I broke out after using this. I seemed to work well though. I am older between 45-50 so not sure why that happened, it did seem a bit heavy. will try again.

poor
Purchased

I have great skin, ivory, no major problems. I was so excited about this product. However, when applied it's it feels like a mask. Offers no type of coverage, so when I apply the smallest amount of foundation. The product clumps together. I have never been more disappointed. I'm hoping the dry winter months to come will help the product work better. Otherwise it's a waste of money.

Sadly Disappointed

I read all the reviews and was super excited about this primer. I used it as how everyone has recommended but after a couple of hours I feel that I have more oil on my face than before! Is this normal???? This product says for all types of skin but maybe not right for my oily skin.
I have also noticed an increased amount of pimples now on my forehead that I used to not have and a couple on my cheeks so I'm thinking my face just does not like this product!

Too waxy
Purchased

I wish I liked this product more, but I prefer primers that are more moisturizing and fill in your pores. This formula was kind of waxy and my makeup seemed to just stick to the primer...it made it hard to blend and my face looked streaky where the primer was applied. It could be because I use tinted moisturizer instead of foundation. The stick formula is a good idea in theory, but in my opinion it doesn't make a great primer.
