I like this primer from the basis that it feels nice on the skin when it's first applied and doesn't leave your face feeling greasy or sticky; however, I don't feel like this primer is anything exceptional to justify the price. In the summer when my skin is more oily prone, by mid-day the makeup on certain parts of my face is starting to melt away.
I have been looking for a primer that makes my skin feel like butter! This is it. It has a beautiful lotion-like feeling and my foundation looks amazing. I tried others but nothing compares to this one. I just wish it had sunscreen built in as it does in the United States, however, I understand this is not the fault of Hourglass but our country's rules and regulations.
I had to try this product after reading so many rave reviews about it on the beauty blog circuit. The texture of this primer is absolutely amazing. It glides over the skin so beautifully and honestly feels like silk. It noticeably improves the wear of my foundation and makes my skin feel smooth and hydrated. My only hesitation about this product is the price; I'm just not convinced that there isn't another product out there that offers similar results for a better value... but I'm determined to keep looking. Highly recommended for those looking for a super effective gorgeous primer and don't mind the hefty price tag.
Not the best primer I've used, but I wouldn't say it was bad. It really does leave your skin feeling very velvety and let's makeup glide on easily. It's pretty pricey, but I have this in the exclusive Sephora size that's 2fl oz, and it comes out to around the same as other primers. One concern I do have is that sometimes it can come out too liquidy/wet. Not sure if that's normal, but it's happened to me multiple times I've bought this product.
The product doesn't do a whole lot for me, the packaging is a huge pain and it's hard to get all of the product out. I felt like it didn't last very long either.
This is one of the better primers. I find some days it works better than others. A little goes a long way. I guess it's a good price but I hope I can get it cheaper somewhere. I would Definately recommend this. I haven't used this in the Summer yet so will have to see.
This is the mother of all primers, it's about the best you can get! I have it in the jumbo 2 oz size and it will last me for years!!!
I am prone to some superficial blemishes on my face, especially while I'm PMSing, so I am always looking for a product that will prep my face for the application of BB cream (during the week) and foundation (for those nights out). This primer is the best I've ever used; it does much more than extend the life of your make up application. After applying, my skin is visibly smoother (and to the touch!); the primer has oil control, but will also soothe those dry patches I sometimes get. Blemishes appear less red and I find that any product I put on top glides on.
While it is a little pricey (~$60 CAD), the good news is there is a travel size that is half the size of the regular one and also exactly half the cost (so you're not incentivized to buy the big one if you are on a budget). I have sensitive skin so I am very careful of what I put on my face. This is a make up essential for me and I swear by it.
P.S- before you put on a foundation or BB cream, make sure to wait a few minutes to let your skin absorb the primer :)
