I don't wear a lot of heavy makeup. I wouldn't buy this and gave it away to someone

I didn't find it did anything amazing. Made skin feel soft but the sparkles was a lil over the top. I just want something that actually does what it's intended to do. I don't need to look like a fairy

I was excited to use this product and liked consisteny of the product going on. After a minute, dry patches that I did not know I had would appear. Furthermore, adding makeup on top would always result in weird flaky remnants. I don't have dry skin so not sure what was going on but each try I always had to just clean my face and not use it. Feeling weird that so many great reviews are out there- maybe I just had a bad batch or all my makeup items not compatible...moisturizers and foundations and powers??

Made my skin more oily
Sampled

I did not like this product because I have oily skin and it made my skin even more oily. I have heard great reviews from my sister about this primer but it just didn't work for me.
