First of all the smell is terrible. I felt like I could smell it all day. The first day I felt like it did pretty well. Maybe a little less oily than normal. The second day I used my BB cream over it and it just flaked off. I

I have super-dry skin so this product is kind of a bust. A total bust. The last thing I need is matify-ing anything

This is fantastic! I have a really oily t-zone and in the summer I tend to be make-up free because it's just not worth putting on the makeup only to have it slide right off. I used this two mornings in a row and wow. What a difference. I live in Central Florida and as you can imagine the summer is brutal. This kept my makeup on all day and looked good even when I went out at night.

Similar to smashbox

Liked this, but it was so similar to my smashbox photo finish, which is about 1/2 the price, that I think I'll stick with that.

I love mattifying gels because I have very oily skin. I will be keeping these in my purse for emergencies. I love that they are individually wrapped. I wish the product came like that when you purchase the full size.

It's ok

Not a huge fan of this product. I have a cheaper primer that works great and doesn't cost as much. It was nice to try but not a favorite.

It was ok. I already have a product that I use that I'm happy with.

Didn't Work
Sampled

I have oily skin, so I am always trying to achieve a matte look and am curious about products that boast long wear. I was disappointed by the size of these foil packets (sooo tiny), but gave it a try. In less than an hour (it claims 8 hour wear... pft) my skin was oily and this product did pretty much nothing to keep my skin matte. This is a pricey product and it just didn't work for me. I wouldn't buy or recommend.

Nice Primer

I really actually love this product, but I typically try not to fall in love with any daily use products that are over $40. That being said, I really like the way this makes my makeup stay put and makes my skin look great! The only negative I have is that is smells bad.
