I love this product, it truly does what it says. My makeup stays on throughout the whole day when I use this and the packaging of this product is perfect especially when on the go!

I'd never used a primer before...
Purchased

My skin is smooth looking, smooth feeling, AND my makeup stays in place in the hot and humid south-east. I was amazed after getting home from work the first day that I used the product that my complexion was still the same way It had looked when I'd left the house that morning...

not bad

I don't mind primers under my powder minerals makeup, however I worry about clogged pores. So far so good, no breakouts and my skin looked great after applying.

Withstands the hot NYC weather!!

I recently purchased this primer after reading all of the rave reviews online. I'm a newly-crowned Benefit junky!! After using drug store makeup my whole life, I recently transitioned to Benefit when I realized the quality was so much better and not that much more expensive. The lady at the store told me that she found you don't need too much product- she suggested a line across your forehead, a line down your nose, a dab on each cheek and chin. I tried that, but it's not easily blended, so the next day I used more and it was so much better. You have to blend it with your fingers as soon as you apply it bc I found that otherwise, my skin was absorbing it too quickly. This product is clear and not sticky or heavy. It acts as a magnet for foundation (liquid, powder, mineral, etc) without causing it to be uneven or splotchy. I put it on after my moisturizer, around 6am and my makeup still looks perfect when I go to take it off around 8pm. I work in NYC and walk all over the place and I couldn't believe my face didn't melt off during the nasty heat wave. Although the price tag of this product is a little heftier than what I wanted to pay, it's worth ever penny. It really helps the longevity of all of your other products. Benefit nails it yet again!

Works best with liquid foundation
Purchased

I used this item with powder foundation and it worked well. It kept my make up lasting hours! Goes on smoothly and doesn't feel thick or pasty.

Jury is still out
Purchased

The first day I used this I was so angry that I spent what I did. But as I've continued (this being the 4th day of wearing it) I'm coming to find it to work quite well. I also ordered the benefit foundation so maybe the switch to both of them really made it difficult for me to apply the foundation right since it's super runny. All I know is I am liking it so far but not loving it. It's super easy to apply, I wish there was a foundation that went on this seamlessly :)

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.
