    Too Shiny

    This primer is no where near as smooth or mattifying as most other primers I have tried and feels more like a shimmering lotion than a primer. And yes, there does seem to be a shimmer built into this primer which makes my combination/oily skin look even shinier than normal. Not what I am looking for from my primer.

    If you tend towards drier skin and need a dewier look this may be ok for you but if you have any shine to your skin already this primer is just going to accentuate that. Would not purchase again.

    My first primer!

    This was my first primer ever! At the time, I thought it worked well because I had nothing to compare it to. Now, after a few years, I can say it's an okay primer, but not the best one. I would lose the glitter though. I believe it gives more of a fake look rather than a "glow".

    Not for me!

    I bought this with the hope that it would be an effective primer before makeup application. The price is pretty cheap, so realistically I wasn't expecting much, and I was right! I have larger pores on my face, so I was hoping that it would help to hide them, but it did the complete opposite and made them quite visible, even with makeup on. It made my face quite shiny and instead of hiding imperfections it actually accentuated them! Not exactly what I was going for. Disappointed, but luckily I didn't spend a lot!

    Wonderful product at an affordable price!

    I was pleasantly surprised with how well this product works! Immediately after applying the Primer, I noticed my skin appeared smoother and somewhat 'blurred'. I love it. I also found it helped lengthen the wear if my BB Creme.

    A perfect value primer

    I always been interested in a primier and I was using the NYC concealer so for 5 bucks I decided to give the primier a try and it has no smell which was nice it did not go on too smooth I really had to blend it in and it did make my concealer look blotchy and also it make my powder go on blotchy as well other then the price is right I won't buy this product again.

    Just an Okay product

    If you are looking for cheap stuff and might wanna use it in a rushed situation then probably you'd just buy it but other than that nothing extremely fancy about it ....gives out this weird sweaty smell and looks too chalky on the face maybe if you just put really tiny amount ....in short i only bought it once and never thought about it again

    Not terrible but not good.

    It says that it's smoothing but all it does it make me skin my shiny and it doesn't smooth or anything really. I found that it personally made my pores stand out more and look bigger.
    It's a good price but not a good product I would not recommend.

    Glittery and flaky

    I decided to give this primer a try mainly due to how inexpensive it was. I should have learned by now that you get what you pay for. In this case not much. I found it applied easily, had a shimmery tone, a creamy consistency, and dried fairly quickly. However it also seemed to make my foundation flake off or collect up any dry skin I had or something as it would start flaking all over the front of my clothing as I blended out my foundation on top (no issue with the same foundation w/ other primers).It may have smoothed my skin somewhat but it didn't do anything to balance out my skin tone or make my foundation and other makeup last any longer than without it. I do not foresee repurchasing this product (so the primer search continues).

    Wasn't a huge fan of this product as I found when applying makeup on tip it never really blended into the skin. I noticed that if my skin was dry in some spots it really would pick up the dry skin when applying makeup on top.
