I used this recently. First it lasts awhile and it doesn't take much to apply. Second is I thought it was going to be oily. It felt like lotion which wasn't so bad. I noticed my makeup looking less flawless during and after application with far less creasing and powder residue. I am happy with this primer and will continue to use it often. I recommend to try

This is such a wonderful product! It is light and it makes your foundation just glide on! I love that it has an SPF in it too! I feel like it prolongs the wear of my makeup overall too! If you aren't sure what primer to use, I would recommend getting this product!!

If you don't Ike the silicone texture of some priners, you would probably like this one better. I however like the gel/silicone texture for primers better as they work better with my skin. I feel like my skin just soaks this one up when I use it l.

I have tried a few primers and always come back to this one. It is light and makes my skin feel silky smooth. Not greasy at all. I wear it alone or with foundation over it. It gives me a flawless look! My only complaint would be about the packaging....the all black bottle makes it difficult to see the amount left. It is a bit expensive but worth the money and lasts a long time! I always recommend this to all my friends!

My favorite primer. It gives a nice smooth finish without leaving your skin feel heavy and greasy. It moisturizes as well which I love because my skin is naturally dry. Definitely worth the money

When you apply this product to your face it is very light, which I do enjoy. This product is easy to apply with a very smooth finish and it has lasted me all day. I apply this product with just my hands and it is very easy to apply. I definitely recommend this product to anyone who asks it is one of the only primers that I have used!

I got a sample of this primer to test before I bought the full sized one... LEMME TELL YA - I was far from disappointed!!! I have dry skin and this made it feel silky smooth. I tailgated in the heat for four hours, spent three hours at a football game, and came home to nap for an hour and my makeup had not moved!!! This is a miracle, y'all.

Honestly, I wasn't a big fan of this product. I felt like it was okay and there was nothing special about it. Plus, it was pretty expensive. I did like the shimmer in the product. Something you can wear by itself and underneath your foundation.
