Comments about Maybelline FaceStudio Mast Prime Blur + Smooth Primer:

This primer is not one of my favorites. Its very light, but up to a point to when it feels like i put nothing on my face. My makeup doesn't really stay that long with this primer. It does slightly smooth my skin but it barely blurs any of my pores.

    Comments about Maybelline FaceStudio Mast Prime Blur + Smooth Primer:

    I love this primer! I even love it as an eyeshadow primer. I would DEFINITELY buy again. Obviously it's the absolute most amazing primer on the market, but for the price it's absolutely amazing. It makes my skin look so nice and smooth, I even bought it for my mom and she loves that it brightens up her mature skin!

          Comments about Maybelline FaceStudio Mast Prime Blur + Smooth Primer:

          This was my first time trying a makeup primer. I purchased this particular brand/type due to the promise of "smoothing" out my fine lines. When used under a smoothing foundation, it DID seem to lessen the appearance of fine lines/wrinkles, but I've only used it once so far.

                    I've spent SO much money trying to find the right primer to suit my high maintenance skin. Not only did this not clog my pores and make me breakout, it is extremely effective! Holds foundation all day leaving your skin looking very matte and non cakey. Super affordable too!

                      While visiting an Ulta location in Colorado, this product was recommended by one of the sales associates. I love the light silky (but not oily) feel when applying. This is my "go to" primer. AND the price is great compared to similar primer products.

                          The lightweight and non-oily formula visually blurs skin tone imperfections, as it smoothes fine lines and helps makeup stay put. It will not lighten skintone. We hope this information is helpful!

                          This product is to be applied all over face before foundation or can be worn alone. We suggest to blend the product fully into the skin before applying foundation on top.

                          Our Master Prime Blur + Smooth Primer is a great product to smooth fine lines and minimize minor imperfections on the skin. However, it does not combat oily skin. Our best option for oily skin is our Dream Pure BB Cream. It is similar to a blur product, however, it also provides a hint of color. This product;
                          Clears acne
                          Conceals
                          Imperfections
                          Minimizes look of pores
                          Reduces appearance of redness
                          Adjusts to skin tone
                          Hydrates and smoothes
                          Enhances and clarifies skin
                          Is oil-free, with a lightweight feel

                          While this product is dermatologist and allergy tested we don't have any specific wear time claims for this product. For most users this product will last all day.Skin that experiences a lot of oil break through or gets hot during the day will be more likely to see makeup fade.
