    Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer:

    I have extremely oily skin and large pores. I put it over moisturizer and under a popular powder foundation and drugstore shine free powder. I feel it is probably best under liquid foundation. I found that my makeup stays on longer around my pores, but it does not fix my pores at all. Apply thick like foundation. It made a huge difference when I used more and let it dry. At 2 hours, my pores are showing and at about 5 hours I start to have melted makeup. It honestly does make it last longer, just not long enough. Need makeup remover to take off.

      It feels kinda gritty which I was concerned about at first but it goes on well, blends well with makeup and controls shine.

        I have oily skin and have always had a hard time keeping my skin from getting shiny. This is the best thing I have found for keeping the shine at bay and making my makeup look fresh all day long.

            Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer:

            This product feels like it has an exfoliant in it, it is very gritty and uncomfortable to apply. It is labeled shine free, but it seemed like a highlighter. the consistency is not thick like other primers I've used, but rather like a sunscreen.

              Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer:

              I was introduced to this product when I had my makeup done for a wedding. Best primer for oily skin I have found. Keeps me shineless until 3pm. Then I need some touch ups. This is far longer lasting than previous primers (noonish). Also does a fabulous job filling in all the pores so my foundation doesn't fill them and make it look like tacky craters across m face.

                Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer:

                I'm glad I found this primer. I needed something to control oil on my t-zone to keep my foundation on all day and this works great. I use only on that area on my face and it does have a different texture to it so don't use too much.

                  Works great at controlling shine. Did not like how it felt when applying, feels like a liquid powder. Not the right product if looking for a smooth, velvety texture.

                  I use this everyday! I have very oily and sensitive skin, I've been spending big bucks for years trying to find something to help, decided to give this a try and I love it!
                  Moisturize well before you apply to help with smooth application other than that I've found no problems!

                    I was a bit cautious purchasing this product after reading some of the reviews but after using it for about a week I'm glad I got it. I didn't break out which has been a problem for me as of late, hid the pores on my nose pretty well, and I like the scent. Yes there was a slight grittiness but not really that big a deal. I pat all over my face and use a beauty blender, let it set, then use my liquid foundation over it.
