  • "i actually really like this primer ! in all honesty i think things work depending on the products you use but also why type of skin you have ! i have combination skin so it can go from oily to dry ! this primer has a very jelly type wear which i love ! i don't like primers that feel velvety and thin! with my oily skin i feel like gel primers gran on to the foundation that i use ! might i add that it doesn't last 12 hours more like six !

Idk about it lasting 12 hours but this primer is underrated. I don’t like the smell of it but it does the job. My makeup stayed on and my foundation (estee lauder double wear) stayed put in this hunky Texas weather. The price is amazing also. I would recommend this to anyone who has oily / combination skin. Oh yeah, I only had to touch up my makeup once in a 7 hour period.

I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited about a product before. I purchased this yesterday because it was one of the cheaper primers and put it on this morning at 5am before work. I put on my foundation after and put on some setting powder. I played volleyball in 90+ degree heat during my lunch break for an hour, went to my other job and got home at 9pm to find that my makeup looks as fresh as it did this morning...there was only a little bit of separating on my noise. It truly amazes me how well this product works especially since I have a really oily t-zone that I usually have to blot a few times through out the day. I didn’t have to blot once...the only down side is the smell. It smells like plastic but once it dries you can’t really notice it anymore.

This was the first product I ever tried from hard candy and just testing it on my hand within 10 minutes it made any fine lines disappear! Gives a very natural finish very affordable and definitely one of my favorite drug store primers! Hard Candy Sheer Envy 12 Hour Power Long Wear Primer

This is some serious primer!! A little tip, don't put it on the entire face at once. It dries and makes the makeup not spread as easily. One section at a time. I can tell this is gonna last all day! Nice price to!!

Bad primer. In the heat your makeup will literally melt off of your face. I have tried it without the primer and with the primer and didn't get the melting effect so it is definitely the hard candy primer doing it. I have tried to like this primer but it breaks me out, it's heavy, and there isn't much to like.

It’s a good product but I would like it if it would last a little longer and if it stayed matte longer over all its a good very soft very easy to apply good for oily skin but doesn’t last very long yes I would recommend it for a short day of makeup wear

This is like glue for your makeup. I use it as an eyeshadow primer and not only does my eye makeup last all night, it doesn’t crease, and it makes the pigment pop like crazy. It’s sticky in all the right ways and it goes on thin so you don’t have to use a ton of it to make it work. If you do go full face with it, you could go to a rave and sweat all night and you’d still look like an Instagram model

Great primer! More on the illuminating side of primers, great texture and in a nude tone. Definitely kept my makeup on longer, even times where I fell asleep with my makeup on and woke up the next day getting compliments on my day old makeup!

This was def not my favorite primer that Hard Candy has. The product worked, not for 12 hours, for 6 bucks it was good. I personally do not wear makeup for 12 hours but I do need it for hot days!

Im more a fan of a clear primer. This should say tinted or something. Also, a VERY STRONG paint primer smell. If you have this, then you know what im talking about. Very heavy on your skin as well. This is what i always use but prefer better quality.
