Not bad, but not great. Tried others I like more and for the price it’s hard to justify it just being okay! If your skin is combo or not terribly oily you may like it, but not for me!

I received this in one of my beauty boxes and I was a huge fan of it. I have tried different primers and this one just didn't impress me as much as other brands.

This primer is cooling and it feels really nice on the face.  It does well to set my makeup in the morning and it stays on all day.  It isn't my absolute favorite, but I do really enjoy wearing it when I do wear it.  It covers pores and helps to fight off blemishes at the same time.

Really love this. Makes your skin matte but it’s not drying to the skin. Also blurs pores very well and not a lot of product is needed. A little goes a long way.

It helps you keep your makeup all day long or all night long. I actually just use it for special occasions since is a bit pricey but it works wonders. It is the only primer that doesn't break me out. It feels like pure silk when you apply it, it is not greasy just perfect.

Okay so I have a little sample size of this primer (I don’t really care for primers tbh) to test out and I actually really liked it but I wore it for a few hours and it started to like of get oily on me but it might have been because of the foundation I used because it’s luminous, but I am gonna give it another try with a few more foundations.

I tried this primer with the coverFx foundation in the summer when I got a bit tan and it was great. It was thick or greasy feeling and I liked the anti blemish treatment bonus!

I like this primer a lot because it leaves a nice matte finish but it isn’t nearly as moisturizing as I would like it to be. It’s easy to apply and leaves your makeup looking great, but if you need something a little more hydrating I would recommend something different.

I’m not sure if it’s this one. I just know it has a green line. I love it for my forehead. It’s where I tend to look oily throughout the day so I love how it keeps me matte but it’s not drying. I would recommend to everyone! The texture is moisturizing which I love over velvety.

So I’m looking for a new primer to try. I’m currently using cover fx mattifying primer, but I would like something new to try to mix it up a bit. Any recommendations for a good primer? 🤗💁
