Not worth the money

This did absolutely nothing for me and I have extremely oily skin. Plus, I don't think the ingredients are very natural or good for your skin. Wouldn't spend the money on it, especially if you have oily skin like me.

Heavy Duty primer

This primer applies easily as a stick and can be spread out more with your fingers. Some might say it can feel a little sticky, but I actually like that because it feels more like a heavy duty primer that can really lock in your makeup and reduce shine throughout the day.

Amazing!

I have tried a ton of primers but this one takes the cake! Wow. My skin has never looked so good. I noticed there are a lot of not so good reviews, sayings its sticky or clumpy. The trick is after applying the primer you have to apply your foundation RIGHT away. It does not dry out my face or make it oily. I will not use anything else! Amazing!

hate it
Purchased

its weird. it feels so gross on my face and it doesn't work! ive tried several methods of application based on what ive found online by other purchasers and nothing seemed to do the trick. I have extremely oily skin and I was really hoping this product would save me! it was annoying because my face would crease on my smile lines and if I ever tried fixing it, my makeup in that area would wipe off completely. it was just totally weird to me.

just not good

I love Benefit's mascara & foundation, so I assumed I'd love their primer as well. Well the good news for me is that I received this as a sample and didn't shell out money for it. The primer just sticks to your face --- which I guess is good because that foundation isn't going anywhere. However, the primer sticking quality isn't so great when trying to apply foundation. Eventually I just gave up, washed my face, and started over without Benefit's primer.

good primer
Purchased

I like anything Benefit right now and this is no exception. My makeup stays all day long. It goes on smooth and I don't notice anything sticky or clumpy about it. I like the applicator a lot. My only complaint is that it broke in the tube. I was able to put it back together and it occasionally falls out but I can at least work with it.

Works Extremely Well for Keeping Makeup on All Day

This primer works very well and lasts all day. The only reason I don't wear it is because it feels like I'm taking a glue stick to my face. It makes my face feel very tacky, but it's definitely worth it for days I need to look particularly good all day.

not long lasting

I had purcures this primer thinking that it would work great. It is very clumpy. It started to come off fast.

I love this primer. Even though the porefessional is my favorite primer, this one it's my backup. It goes on super easy and like the name says it, it last very long.

Somewhat regretting my purchase

When I saw this in the store, I absolutely loved the packaging. When I used the tester, it felt so amazing on my skin. Went on with a cooling and almost a gel/liquid feel. I thought it would make a fantastic primer, so even though I don't usually use primer, I bought it. When I got home and used it for the first time, I realized I probably should have tested it in the store using foundation on top of it, because I found that the foundation I had been using was really hard to apply over this primer. It got sticky and wouldn't spread or blend very well, so it ended up looking kind of blotchy. I'm not sure if this is just because of the foundation I was using over it. I hope to find a foundation that works better with this product (perhaps one by the Benefit brand?) but be warned: it does not work well with all foundations
