I love the way that this product feels when applied. It makes my skin feel so nice and smooth. It helps to make the Bare Minerals foundation go on smoother and have a less cakey appearance.
LOVE! Made my foundation look flawless and kept it on even after some serious sweating
I have been using this primer off and on for a couple months now, I am going to list my pro's and con's.
PROS: Smooth's out pores/ minimizes pores. Is a silicon feeling instead of a cream (which I do find works better for smoothing the skin out). There is a lot of product, my bottle feels almost full.
CONS: Because it is a silicon feeling primer it can get heavy if you accidentally use too much. Tends to look greasy with certain foundations.
Overall because I have already purchased it, I will use it as it is a decent primer but I wouldn't repurchase as it does tend to look oily at times, more so in the warmer months. I have combination/dry skin in certain spots but my whole face isn't dry so it can be overwhelming at times when my skin is cooperating. I do recommend this to people with dry skin as it smooths down flakes. People with oily skin stay away, you may bend up looking overall oily. Again, this is based off of my experiences with this product, I do use liquid foundation and it may work differently with powder.
I haven't tried this with anything other than Bare Minerals. But with Bare Minerals its the perfect primer in my opinion! Makes the powder really last that much longer.
Recently purchased in a combo pack with powder and bronzer. Never used it before with their foundation. Since using it I find the foundation lasts for a greater part of the day than without. My skin in oily so unusually have to reapply powder midday but with this primer I find that I don't get that mid afternoon forehead shine! An absolute necessity in my makeup bag now!!
Very nice on my skin soft silky and smooth. Not chalky. Makes skin feel great
This stuff is awesome! I like how it smooths over my skin and how it helps blend my foundation.
I also received a deluxe sample of this a few months ago. I love it, it covers up the pores near my nose and chin. It doesn't leave your skin dry or taut like some do.
I got a small sample tube at Sephora and it has lasted me a good while. The full size bottle is a little pricey, but you only need to use a small amount each time. Great primer for applying before your makeup routine. It helps smooth out pores and fine lines and creates the perfect base for foundation and concealer, helping you avoid the cakey look. It hasn't irritated my sensitive skin which is a bonus!
