This really helped me reduce that shine in my face and was really helpful. I applied this around my t-zone to reduce the appearance of the shine. After I applied this all on my face it have a matte finish. I would definitely recommend this.

This is life changing! I get extremely oily on my nose and this is the only product that controls it ! A little goes a long way but it doesn’t feel thick or drying. Has a silicone texture and it does NOT make me break out . I was afraid it would because I have really sensitive skin but it worked out just fine.

I just bought this any it’s already changing my life. My makeup stays put all day and looks flawless. You only need to use a dab for your whole face. Yes it’s a small bottle for $25. But it’s worth it. I have oily skin and I only need to touch up with powder once a day and that’s all and not even a lot.

Best for summer time make up!!!!!!! I’ll be honest, I swear a lot and it’s annoying to try to find any make up products that don’t make it worse. THIS PRODUCT IS AMAZING. Your make up goes on smoothly over the cream and last until your ready to take it off. I swear by this cream and encourage everyone to buy it.

This product worked well for me. It helped control shine for sure but didn’t stop the foundation from seeping into my fine lines and small wrinkles which is something i look for in an oil control/blurring primer. Very good for shine control tho!

I couldn’t find the Strobe Creams option but that’s the primer from MAC I use and it helps my foundations NOT cling to my dry patches and helps my dull skin look a little more alive and radiant. I use it on my forehead and cheeks!

Didn’t nothing for me and like lost Mac products made my skin itch terribly and almost intensified the look of my pores mix u think it’ll be best for someone who’s slightly oily. Also made my makeup look sticky and tacky.

I dont always use primer but it does make my skin smooth, reduce the look of pores and help keep my oily skin stay matte. I like MAC primer as it has a light velvety texture and only a small amount is needed.

I have this product and felt like it clogged my pores and actually make me more oily. I used it under studio fix which was maybe the issue but does anyone have any tips or alternatives to use this for?
I haven't seen this product. How does it work? Is it a foundation?
