Comments about Catrice Prime & Fine Smoothing Refiner:

This is just okay. It could be better. When I use it I do see a difference as my pores look less noticeable and the product goes on very smoothly but I think the NYX pore filler does a better job at giving a flawless appearance and I use less product.

Great Deal!

By LaurenJay MUA

from St. Petersburg, Florida

Comments about Catrice Prime & Fine Smoothing Refiner:

For the price, this option is great! It helps my foundation stay put all day & smooths over my pores. I will say though that if you over use this product, it will become greasy. People tend to forget that you only need a pea sized amount of primer for your entire face!

    Yes, I've been on a primer quest and selected this as an option for an upcoming trip to Europe--no spills, no fuss. Its the perfect size for travel and so far works nicely--we'll see how it holds up in a completely different climate but for the price, it was worth the roll of the dice

    Pretty good

    By Brenda

    from Lufkin, Tx

    Comments about Catrice Prime & Fine Smoothing Refiner:

    I like it. The packaging is nice and the product has a whipped feeling when getting some out and then it glides on really smoothly when applied. I do notice that it blurs out my pores but not my fine lines. This does not help your foundation stay all day.

    Not so much smoothing...but very silky

    By Allie

    from New York, NY

    Comments about Catrice Prime & Fine Smoothing Refiner:

    I bought this as my very first primer, looking to find something to "smooth out pores and fine lines". I'm 24 with minimal wrinkles (under eye and crease between brows mostly), but have pretty big pores on the apples of my cheeks. As other reviewers have said, this is SO silky and a little goes a long way. I LOVE the smell, too, just a clean makeup scent. I have oily skin (summer is upon us in NYC, gross) so I'm not keen on the fact that this in no way helps that. It also does not minimize my tiny wrinkles or my pores whatsoever...I'm not even sure what I was expecting, as I've never used a primer before, but I saw zero change so I'm assuming that's bad. All in all, I wouldn't buy again simply because it is only silky smooth and that's not reason enough for me, no matter how inexpensive. Makeup glides on easier (I think?) but I think my face lotion does just as good.
    If you're looking for a face primer that's silky and acts almost like a moisturizer, this is for you. If you're looking for a primer that fills fine lines/wrinkles (like this one says right on it), then you may have to bite the bullet and opt for the more expensive ones...like I will have to...one day, but probably not.

    Pretty good

    By Nay

    from Indiana

    Comments about Catrice Prime & Fine Smoothing Refiner:

    Overall it's a good primer. I'd say it's the tiniest bit oily but mostly just creamy. It goes on very smoothly and a little goes a long way. I wouldn't say this would be a product for people with larger pores though.

      Comments about Catrice Prime & Fine Smoothing Refiner:

      This product works great! The formula is a cream, and a little bit goes a long way which is great. I just take some on my finger tips and blend it into my face just like I would a moisturizer.

      Comments about Catrice Prime & Fine Smoothing Refiner:

      I have oily skin and it held up really well throughout the day. But I didn't really notice it blurring out any of my gargantuan sized pores at all. All in all, I would purchase it again for the price that it is.

      Comments about Catrice Prime & Fine Smoothing Refiner:

      This is the first primer I've purchased and I would use this product in the morning before putting on my foundation, the only problem I have is that I have oily skin and I feel like this isn't good for oily based skin. Other than that it's a good product, just not for oily skin in my opinion.
