Good primer
Purchased

I'm not really the kind of person that can tell the difference between a $20 primer and the $5 stuff. This primer is nice and light and I'm glad I tried it out.

Love it!

I think this is the best primer. It puts such a smooth coat on your skin! It makes a great base for putting in concealer, foundation, etc.

Expensive

It works well and helps with longevity, but it is more pricey. I'm sure I could find a primer that works just as well for less

This stuff is like velvet on your skin. I love the way my face looks and feels when I wear this

Great Primer

I had never used a primer before this product and I will probably re-order. It made my complexion much more even and made applying foundation much easier. I also found that I was able to use less foundation when using the primer first.

Eh

I bought this primer because I was looking for a good water-based primer to go under my water based foundation. I didn't like the way it made my skin feel and it smelled really bad also. I will not be repurchasing.

Just ok

I ordered this on a whim. I don't notice much difference at all from using it or going without. I have only tried it a handful of times, so I will likely give it a chance, but so far I'm not overly impressed or convinced of the need for it.

Perfect for oily skin

I battle t-zone oil slicks year round and this is one of the best products to get a few extra hours out of your makeup. It stays matte but doesn't dry you out. I always wear it to family events where I know there will be photos.

Stays on forever!!!

I never used primer before this one and OMG...it's amazing! I didn't have to do any touch-ups and actually almost had a complete full face of makeup after a 19 hour day. The outer edges of my face where I touch the most had worn but the places where I didn't really touch my face much stayed perfect throughout the day! Highly recommend!
