It’s a cheap tiny primer with oily texture and fancy motor oil smell. It doesn’t absorb well in the skin so none of my foundation blended well on top of it. You have to wait at least 15 minutes to semi-dry it. Well, I have oily skin, so party I blame it.
Instead of the hydration this primer feels like it clogs your pores.
Honestly if I’d to buy another drug-store product, I’d rather add a little more and get any of the maybelline primers instead. So disappointing...
Tips- for a flawless canvas for foundation, B.B. cream, C.C cream-add setting powder on top of your primer after it has dried down for a few !!!!seconds!!! Adding the setting powder was recommended to subscribers of Jackie Aiana (comment/reply/like if y’all know her ;)
The biggest drawback is the smell. It's a hot musty odour and it's rather strong when you first apply it, although it goes away reasonably fast. Not a terrible first primer for those on a budget.
