Don’t see much of a difference
It might help slightly, but it’s hard to tell. I bought it to try to help the powder foundation from accentuating my forehead fine lines. I did half of my face with the primer and the applied my makeup and it was pretty hard to tell if it helped at all. I wouldn’t buy it again.
Doesn’t break me out and is a great base for foundation!
Love this primer! I was looking for something that would help keep my loose power from separating from my skin throughout the day as it gets oily but also wouldn’t irritate my sensitive skin, and this does both perfectly. It keeps my makeup in place, and I’ve never noticed any irritation at all. I love that it’s fragrance free since fragrance it a big irritation trigger for me. It doesn’t 100% keep my skin from looking shiny as the day goes on, though it does help a lot. For addition oil control, I top off my face with a dusting of a silica based powered, and that takes care of the additional shine. I do agree with other reviews that it’s best to dot this on in small areas and then rub in for best coverage.
I love it!
A wonderful primer works very well with the mineral powder foundation. Smooth and very clean looling.
Gotta move quick
It definitely mattifies great, you’ve gotta move quick when putting it on cause it dries super fast.
