      Love this primer. Maybelline you did it again! This is a must have for me. Definitely makes the skin appear smooth and even, touch your face after applying and you can feel the difference, baby butt difference no joke. Helps my foundation stay on longer but best of all, absolutely lightweight! You won't even remember you put it on. Yes, buy it now!

          Comments about Maybelline FaceStudio Mast Prime Blur + Smooth Primer:

          I tried this as an alternative to my Too Faced Hangover RX primer because I heard it was supposed to be good for people with dry skin. I would say it worked 'okay' with my dry skin. Nothing really spectacular about this primer. It kind of balled up on me after a while, but it did keep my makeup on for longer than if I had used no primer. Id say this primer is best if you're going for a matte flawless finish. No real noticeable scent, it went on very smoothly and felt nice if a little thick on the skin. I didn't really notice any 'Blurring' or 'smoothing' of my pores either, especially the larger ones near my nose. It was just kinda a primer, nothing great about it, but nothing bad either. I ended up giving it to my friend though as I wasn't a fan.

            This really makes my foundation and blush look picture perfect - it's a great primer. I have noticed by the end of the day that my t-zone is a bit greasy/oily to the touch but it doesn't look that way in the mirror. I'm not sure if it's the hot, humid days we've been having or if that's how it reacts to my skin. We'll find out this fall I suppose!

              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.

                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!

                    • Q:

                      "Blur + Smooth Primer" - is this the formula that is meant to take the place of Maybelline's now discontinued INSTANT AGE REWIND Primer/Skin Transformer? If not, does Maybelline offer a comparable product? It hydrated and smoothed skin imperfections like no other! LOST.

                        A:

                        Nothing will be exactly the same as the Instant Age Rewind Primer, but this would be the best alternative. The lightweight and non-oily formula visually blurs skin tone imperfections, as it smoothes fine lines and helps makeup stay put. We hope this helps!

                        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.
