    I normally don't use a primer but this was suggested at Ulta when I purchased my new foundation. So easy to apply and makes my skin so soft and flawless! It's a bit pricey but I plan on buying the bigger size next time.

      This is a great antishine product. I use it daily and it keeps my makeup on better than other products that are designed for the same purpose. I have oily skin so I'm always looking and trying new things, this one will be a keeper. Do keep the lid on to prevent it from drying out.

        A little bit of this product goes a long way. I just put I tiny dot on my fingers and rub it into my nose, cheekbones, forehead, and chin. I usually just wear it by itself, but sometimes I put it on under my makeup and i love the way it looks and feels.
