        Comments about NARS Pore & Shine Control Primer:

        I wish I loved this product. It seems to work really well and blurs my pores as promised. It has a nice powdery finish that worked on my oily skin but didn't seem drying. However, the "blurring particles" they use (I think?) are very gritty and irritated my skin after a few days of constant use. It make my skin soft, and I don't have sensitive skin at all, but I couldn't get over the rough texture every morning.

          I received this stuff as a sample with purchase and was super excited to try out a new primer that was shine and pore control from an awesome brand. I've never had excessively dry skin, and this stuff totally dried my skin out. While I felt it did its job with not only keep my makeup flawless all day long, when I would take my makeup off I felt as though I had just washed it with a harsh chemical facial wash. I am glad I was able to sample this product without purchasing it to find out that it is just not for me.

            I first received this primer as a sample and immediately fell in love. I have oily skin and large pores and this smooths everything out and keeps my makeup looking gorgeous. I used to use the Smashbox primer but it has been replaced by the NARS primer. It is a little pricey, but definitely worth it in my opinion!

                Comments about NARS Pore & Shine Control Primer:

                I was hopeful, but this stung horribly when I applied this product. By the end of the day, a red rash appeared under BOTH eyes. And, it DID NOT absorb oil--my makeup was greasy within hours. Luckily Ulta took it back for a full refund.

                  I have terrible oily skin on my T zone I was recommended this product by one of the sales persons at the store but being honest I don't see it working what so ever I used the Becca primer which I find working better and lasting longer

                      The only primer I've tried that doesn't add to my oiliness

                      By Ariel

                      from Texas

                      Comments about NARS Pore & Shine Control Primer:

                      So I've used quite a few different primers and recently out of nowhere my skin became even oilier than it used to be. Did everything I could do, assumed it was a specific product I was using but after a weekend of no make up and still having my face look like I decided to pour oil all over it I realized it was just my skin. I tried buying products specifically marketed for oily skin and they all made it worse. I had pretty much stopped using any primer because I felt they made my skin ger oily faster. I had gone from using one oil blotting sheet all day to using two at a time 2-3 times a day. I got a sample of this one day when Ulta had a coupon for it with any purchase. Best. Decision. Ever. 1. My face doesn't get oily until after 12 hrs later, and it's not even a full oil blotting sheet worth. 2. My make-up looks flawless all day. I seriously love this product, it's been a life saver.
                      One downside, when I first have it on my fingers and until I get it worked in it smells a bit like calamine lotion. But once it's worked in I don't smell it at all.
