I don't like the silicone based primers, otherwise this did perfect pores. I just didn't like the texture

I absolutely love this product. I have tried so many primers and none of them do what I want which is keep the oil at bay and keep my makeup in place. I've done drugstore, mac, smash box for quite a while and nothing compared to this primer. It has a thick consistency and doesn't slide around, my foundation felt/looked so different on my face with this underneath. My face was almost completely matte throughout the entire day which is impossible for me. with smash box i got oily about 3 hours in. It actually held my blush from 10 am until 2 am at night when I got home. I love it, holy grail product for sure.

I heard great things about this primer and bought it just so I could use it on my graduation day. I was worried that it would just be like any other primer and wouldn't be worth the price, but my goodness, was I wrong. This is a fantastic primer. My makeup stayed put throughout the ceremony, evening, and night. I've always had a problem with a rough patch between my eyebrows, but this primer smooths it out like nothing I've ever seen! I remember freaking out about how smooth that area was after using it to my friends haha. But yes, fantastic primer, well worth the money! And a little really does go a long way with this one.

Love this! It really smoothes my face and minimizes the look of pores. For some reason (maybe the sunscreen I usually wear before my makeup that makes my face greasy) it takes a while to "set" before I can start putting makeup on over it. The staying power is good, but not any better than most other primers I've used. I think what sets it apart is the texture - it's thicker than comparable primers (e.g., Smashbox Photofinish) which I prefer!

I love the feel of this primer! It holds the foundation (amazonian clay foundation of course!) on so well. I can brush my teeth and not worry the foundation around my mouth will come off. I gave my mom her own bottle because she loved mine so much!

This product definitely makes the skin feel poreless. You can feel it working on your hands before you even put it on your face, and even more so on your face. It makes my skin feel sooo smooth and any foundation I put on over it just glides on super easily. This is a great primer, I only had the sample size but once that runs out you can bet I'll be looking to buy a full size.

This is the best primer that I have ever used. I have tried many primers that claim to mattify the skin and to be long-wearing, but none of them delivered as this one does. It makes my large pores disappear, and it keeps my oily skin under control. It makes my foundation last even longer--over the twelve hours that some of the Tarte foundations promise--and it is waterproof! It is perfect for individuals with active lifestyles and who exercise wearing makeup.

Truly does give you a poreless complexion. Have even worn alone on "no makeup" days. Just a dab is all you needs Face is so soft and silky. My son even likes to use it!!

I love this face primer! It leaves my skin smooth and keeps the oil from breaking apart my foundation. I would rate it a 5, but I've noticed that sometimes it can cause my foundation to settle into my pores. But that could be user error to. Other than that, it has never caused me to breakout or caused any irritation with my sensitive skin!

By far the best primer I have used. It keeps make up in place and preps the skin giving it a perfectly even surface.

The is a little pricy but you really don't use a lot of product at a time. Could last you the year, so it's worth the investment. I'm not 100% on the "waterproofness" of this product. I do know it keeps my BB Cream on my face all day, which is a good 12 hours that involves a lilt sweating and humidity. Anyway the whole point of this particular face primer is to give you a "pore less" look. Well it does and it does it well! I have so deep and large acne scaring and I find it help fill it all in. I don't have fine lines yet, so I'm sure it would help with those also. I can't mention it enough that a little really does go a long way and since it's colourless it's hard to se where you already put it on. You can feel it as it give your face a "velvet" feel to it.

If you don't have the 30$ and your using more BB/CC creams, Maybeline Baby Skin is very similar for 1/3 the price!

I have lots of acne scars and this helps even them out so that my foundation (Amazonian Clay 12-hour foundation) goes on smoother. Makes my skin feel super soft as well! It is not cheap but I've gotten to the point in my life (early 30's) where I will pay more for good quality skin-care and make-up products. I have celiac, so my skin is very sensitive to everything and so far, no breakouts.
