wouldn't recommend

Comments about Revlon PhotoReady Primer Anti-shine Balm:

I used this under my foundation a few times and noticed that when I would go out, without rigorous activity, this stuff made beads of sweat come through the rest of my makeup! I had to repeatedly wipe off beads of sweat from my forehead, chin, and above my upper lip. I have combo skin but i don't think it even matters with this stuff... not to mention it clogs your pores pretty badly, too. don't use this stuff.

    Comments about Revlon PhotoReady Primer Anti-shine Balm:

    I'm used to liquid primes and this one is more of a cream and I absolutely love it. It comes with a sponge to apply it. It goes on easily and makes my skin very smooth. I have very oily skin and need a primer that is mattifying and this does a good job. Would definitely recommend this product to everyone.

        a waste of money

        By Alyssa

        from New Mexico

        Comments about Revlon PhotoReady Primer Anti-shine Balm:

        This works for maybe a half hour but you're even more oily afterwards. It leaves a slick feeling on the skin that's gross and it causes makeup to shift and separate on your skin, leaving you looking blotchy and shiny.

          Comments about Revlon PhotoReady Primer Anti-shine Balm:

          I love revlon and this product helps keep makeup on and fill in pores, but is kind of drying in some parts of my face. Other parts like my tzone still becomes pretty oily. Other than those makeup stays on fairly good.

          Comments about Revlon PhotoReady Primer Anti-shine Balm:

          I have extremely oily skin and this stuff was awful!!! It was like I was putting oil onto my face. I was excited when it first came out but this stuff is not good for oily skin. Maybe combo.

            Comments about Revlon PhotoReady Primer Anti-shine Balm:

            I am in love with a super spendy primer balm from YSL but tried this on a whim instead. SO glad I did because it is nearly identical, and i would say even better at minimizing pores. I wear an argan oil daily moisturizer and even though my skin is dry, I like using this primer afterwards to tone down the shiny moisturizer look. It finishes with a velvety look and feel, and skin looks more smooth and even and feels sooo silky. I bought a velour "puff" from ulta to use instead of the included sponge. I don't wear foundation so can't comment on how it holds up under makeup, but it looks fantastic alone! So very pleased and now I hope Revlon never stops making this!! :-D
