- "this!! this is a great primer! it’s similar in consistency to smashbox photo finish primer but is slightly pigmented. it also dries down a lot better than the fore mentioned product. it leaves a nice matte finish and doesn’t cause my brows to run or wipe away like most other silicone primers do." in 416 reviews
- "i have extremely oily skin.. or so i thought until i used this product. pro: it mattifies the skin as it claims. con: it made my foundation look cakey. maybe i should of use a more hydrating moisturizer before applying this but don't think i'll repurchase since it made me look more oily at the end of the night." in 56 reviews
To save some money, I would recommend buying 2 tubes of the mini version. You'll spend $34 for 1 ounce of product as opposed to spending $37 for a 1 ounce tube.
My only gripe is that it’s a little difficult to squeeze out of the tube to the point where it’s really annoying. I’ve used and repurchased this enough to where it’s the same every time. I have to use two hands to SQUEEZE that stuff out (I know first world probs). I had to take off a star because of this.
The texture of this feels almost like smashbox’s primer, it has a silicone feel to it. But it doesn’t feel heavy on my face vs smashbox’s primer.
Overall, it’s a great primer if you have oily skin. Highly recommend, the packaging/getting the product out shouldn’t deter anyone from buying this 💕
I have combo skin so I utilize all three of them.
Matte: for my t-zone. Leaves your skin SUPER matte!! If you are extremely oily, this one will be your best friend. Especially in the summer. I wouldn’t recommend it if you have dry skin. It will just dry your skin out even more.
Hydrating: for the perimeter of my face. Feels like the Too Faced Hangover primer. This is the one I would recommend if you have dry skin, but it would also work if you have oily skin. I’ve used it all over the face when I want a natural skin finish.
Smoothing: for my nose and cheek area where I have large pores. Feels like the Benefit porefessional, but less silicony if that makes sense. And I noticed that this one really helps prevent my make up from caking up around the sides of my nose. It blurs out my pores and gives me a smooth canvas before applying foundation.
If you haven’t tried these yet.....get a sample!!! Or they also have them in travel sizes 👌🏽👌🏽
This primer really does smooth pores (way better than porefessional and pores no more). The end result is matte and smooth, and this definitely keeps oil at bay throughout the day. I do not recommend this for dry skin. It will bring out the dry flakes and make putting on foundation (especially powder) a nightmare. If you have combo skin, use this on your oily areas and something else for the dry areas. The product does not break my sensitive skin out. Which is another reason to love it!
I feel comfortable wearing just this, without foundation because it does a good job with smoothing and camouflage the redness. The texture is similar to porefessional. It spreads easy on moisturized skin and blends well with all of my 10000 products!
