      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.

      Really Controls Oil

      By Kenny

      from Mansfield

      Comments about NARS Pore & Shine Control Primer:

      Because of the texture I didn't expect to like this product but after using it for a week, it really does control the shine. My skin is oily and acne prone. I actually mix it with my foundation and it works perfectly. Definitely controls shine.

          I use this primer after my moisturizer and under my foundation. It minimizes my pores and smooths my face to provide a nice natural complexion.

            First, I apply moisturizer to my entire face and neck below my jawline. Once the moisturizer dries, I apply this Nars Pore & Shine Control Primer all over. It is very smooth and extremely soft. I have tried several different primers from various brands as inexpensive as ELF to Tarte/Smashbox/TooFaced and everything in between. Nothing has made me happier than this Nars product. I love the almost citrus-y scent which does NOT irritate my sensitive skin. I absolutely love how soft it feels once applied and it works really well under my make up. I highly recommend this primer!

            Comments about NARS Pore & Shine Control Primer:

            I really wanted to love this primer because I love the NARS eyeshadow primer but sadly it let me down. I used this a few times to give it a chance but I noticed after an hour or two, it would leave a white, flaky reside wherever I had applied it. I'm no newbie to primers/makeup and it only did this when/wherever I applied this primer. I ended up returning it!

                Comments about NARS Pore & Shine Control Primer:

                One of the sales associates pointed this primer out to me in the store, and just to by the way this primer felt on the back of my hand I had to have it. This primer is so smooth and has the perfect consistency. It's not thin like a moisturizer and not thick like the silicone primers that you find, it's just right. Went on my skin super smooth, and my make up looks exactly the same after 9 hours of wear. I noticed the smallest, tiniest amount of oil around my nose and that was all. I do have combination skin and normally get oily around my t zone. Not with this primer. Would definitely repurchase and have already recommended to my friends.
