My face definitely goes through phases, but when I'm going through an oily skin phase, this product is my holy grail! It's not over drying but it's mattifying.

When I apply the product it feels cooling but most importantly, it works well any foundation or BB cream to help give a beautiful finish!

I've been using this with a Sephora 10-hour wear and pressed setting powder and it is a fantastic primer. Truly controls your oils without drying you out like the desert doesn't pill and does not cause any breakouts. There isn't anything in this Sephora line that isn't absolutely fantastic!

This is a good dupe for the Becca Backlight Primer. It’s a nice glowy primer, the only reason I have it 4/5 stars was because it’s a little more, runny than the Becca one. It’s good for combo skin (I have that and use it on my high planes of the face) if you have dry skin I’d probably do a moisturizer before!💓

I like this! It provides a really good smooth surface for makeup and really keeps it matte and prevents makeup from sliding around. It’s good value too, I took off a star because it is pretty sticky and makes it kind of difficult to blend makeup.

This definitely was mattifying at first but in the end my makeup did not stay and it felt like my face was too oily .. i never had a primer like this but it wasn’t the best and i wouldn’t buy it use again.

First full size primer I purchased from #sephora it goes on so silky smooth. I've completely satisfied with this product. I have #compared it with #smashbox primer. And there is absolutely no difference beside the price. definitely recommend SEPHORA COLLECTION Beauty Amplifier Ultra Smoothing Primer

Smooth feeling on face primes good gets the job done just wish it lasted all day and hydrated my skin a bit. But did not hid dry patches on the skin. Ok go to primer for a short period of time

It was an alright product , nothing amazing or different that stood out to me. I've used other primers that worked far better but this one got the job done. It's not something I'd buy again but for others wanting to explore options I would recommend getting the smaller size to start with.

It is amazing!!! It makes your face very matte! The only problem with this product is that you need to have your face moisturized, because otherwise it will dry it out. I would definitely buy this again!

How is this for filling in pores and keeping you matte? Does it break you out?

The gel primer claims immediate mattification from the green tea and rose ingredients. Does this dry out skin or maintain moisture?

A lot of products claim they mattify but they don’t really, does this one actually work?
