I got this in a sample size in my July ipsy bag. I like it it hides my pores but I wouldn't say I'm poreless😉 matte finish no shimmer it's a great base for before foundation. Lol Mack in the 90s I  didn't  know there where steps to everything. Lol lotion primer foundation then concealer highlight sculpt  ECT ECT. I knew about concealer n foundation. I didn't know primers existed til youtube make overs🤣 this product is great given the brand. Wish they had s drug store affordable version. But I guess the closest is nyx.

Soooo in love with this I got it in my Ipsy bag and I’m so glad I got a chance to try it . It goes on like any other primer it has so sparkle to it which I was nervous about cuz I’m not so much a glittery gal . But woah once I applied my foundation on top I looked like a had perfect baby skin and I had used the same foundation Minus this primer and the result were not this good at all . I really want to try the formula with sunscreen if it’s just as good I am sold on this product forever .

I used this because I know it’s a necessity and haven’t tried any other brands. Keeps make makeup from being absorbed by my skin. It doesn’t make your face smooth for an even application for the foundation but sometimes it can feel a little slick once it has been applied.

The first high end primer that I’ve purchased. I love how smooth it is to apply. Feels like putting on lotion. I don’t care for silicone primers. So this primer is a plus. It does have some shimmer in it. I assume for radiance. It is noticeable on your hands put applying it on your face and using your foundation you wouldn’t notice it. I recommend for dry to combination skin.

One of my holy grail primers. I have very dry skin all year round and in order for my makeup to last all day, I need a good primer. I've been using this for the past 3 weeks and my look lasts all 8 hours of work and then some. It is very light weight and it does not make my skin feel oily. I highly recommend this to anyone with dry skin.

i'm actually pretty upset that i used this primer because now i don't think i'll be able to use another. it makes you skin feel amazing and not at all greasy and keeps your make up looking and feeling great all day. now that i've used this primer i'm gonna need to make it a regular in my make up bag which sucks since it's so expensive.

This was the first primer I ever encountered a few years ago and I wasn’t impressed, but it’s been a few years so I figured that the formula might have been updated but it was not. It’s a light and a creamy formula that absorbs completely into the skin, but it does nothing for my makeup. It doesn’t help my makeup wear longer or stay where it’s suppose to, so if I wore it or didn’t I wouldn’t notice a difference.

I love this primer! I am in show business and have to do stage make up every day, listing for about 6 hours through sweat. This is a great product to keep my make up long lasting, and protect my skin from the heavy make up I have to wear. It feels very light weight but gets the job done! I would definitely buy it again!
