Not for me.

Comments about Laura Geller Spackle Mattifying Under Make-up Primer:

I have extremely oily skin, and while this makes me skin look smoother right after application, it doesn't seem to improve the look or wear of my makeup once it sets. It didn't help with oil breakthrough. I will say that it didn't break me out, so while it didn't help, it didn't necessarily hurt.

Another review mentioned the need to shake this before application. The ingredients separate and come out in an oily mess if you don't. The last several days, it seems to happen no matter how much shaking and kneading I do before opening it, though, so it's possibly a problem that gets worse over time. It's too late to take this back, unfortunately.

    Comments about Laura Geller Spackle Mattifying Under Make-up Primer:

    Had really high hopes for this considering the reviews are so good! I have SUPER oily skin and live in Florida. It is 90+ degrees every day and 90% humidity. I bought this and another primer, estee lauder matte primer, and the EL blew this one out of the water. This one seems to make my foundation crease in my smile lines, badly. I also noticed feeling so slimy and oily after just a few hours of wear. Will return this one and keep EL!!

          Let's start off by saying I live in Arizona typical weather for us is 113°+ Which makes it hard to wear foundation without a great primer, your face will literally melt off as soon as you walk out the door , I had to find a solution because I do love wearing make , I came across this product and was hoping for the best.... OMG This is a miracle worker I did not sweat , I didn't have to touch up my make up , I will be repurchasing this product over and over again it is a staple in your collection .....I honestly can't say enough about this product you will have to try it out yourself ☺️

              I use this primer as my starting product when I begin to apply my makeup. I have terribly oily skin and also work as a bartender. The girls at ulta were so qyick to help me find a primer that would help control the oil that tends to show through my makeup during a shift at work. I LOVE Laura Geller lipsticks and now have a new item of hers to love!

                Normally my skin gets very oily in my forehead and my nose, but with this product is have put on makeup at 6am and taken it off at around 12pm and I was not Shiney at all compared to without it. I personally love the silicone feel of the primer. It feels so nice and smooth but if u dislike silicone I would stay away from this product. I almost bought the La Base Pro but this primer is almost $10 cheaper AND there is atleast DOUBLE the amount of product.

                  I have struggled for so long trying to find a primer that will actually work for my super oily skin, and this primer was the one. Far better than smash box or anything else i've tried. THIS STUFF ACTUALLY WORKS. Made my face soft and my pores disappeared, foundation application was so much easier. Even hours later in humid conditions, i started to shine a little bit but it was more of a sheer glow rather than my typical "makeup melted on my face" kind of thing.

                        I'm completely new to the primer game, but this product has been wonderful! It is light and easy to apply with an even application. The product really does matte my skin (I use a moisturizer that happens to have a pearl-like finish, and this product completely mattes it [which I enjoy]). I have oily skin and as my makeup begins to fade (though it does last longer when I use the primer), I don't look as oily, more like I have a nice glow to my face. The product doesn't feel heavy and I forget that I'm wearing it (except when I notice the benefits).

                            Yes, there is a very small amount of silicone in this primer. I have used it on clients with the most sensitive skin and it has not irritated anyone or made them break out. It also contains skin loving ingredients like botanicals and antioxidants, so I would definitely recommend giving it a try!

                            We always recommend using your regular moisturizer before most Spackles. The Spackle will lock in that moisture, helping your skin stay nice and hydrated throughout the day. However, there are no rules! Because this is a mattefying Spackle and has somewhat of a different consistency, try using this as your first step, and then moisturizer and then makeup. You will probably notice that the mattefying Spackle will do it's job much better. Keep up the great work- 60 and loving it! Enjoy!

                            This primer is not drying at all, however it is not designed to add any extra hydration to the skin. I would recommend using your regular moisturizer first, and then use the mattifying Spackle to ensure your skin receives the hydration that it needs.

                            What is the overall level of your skin tone? If you are fair, light, or medium, this product will blend in perfectly with your skin and will not look chalky or ashy. If you have a deeper skin tone, I have seen this product have a slight ashy finish. This product does works great, however my recommendation is to try another Spackle, and then to finish your look with Laura Geller's Matte Maker Mattefying powder. This will eliminate all shine and oil without adding any makeup. It's a great last step, and you can take it on the go to eliminate the oil throughout the day. This product does not show up and it does not build. Enjoy! http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod2240033

                            Yes. All of our Spackles retexturize the surface of your skin so the makeup you put on top of it will glide on nice and smooth. It will do a great job at slightly filling in any lines, wrinkles, pores, and acne scars.

                            You got it! Spackle primer locks in moisture, helping keep the skin nice and hydrated throughout the day. So use moisturizer first and then the primer. I like to think of Spackle as the last step of my skincare process and the first step of my makeup :-)

                          Is there a tint or color to this primer, or is it clear?

                            This primer has a very slight peach tint. It is very sheer and almost looks clear when you apply it. But the ever so slight peach will start to color correct the complexion.

                          Is this product oil free? Also, will it break me out? I have very acne prone skin.

                            This product is oil-free and it will help with oil control throughout the day. It's loaded with botanicals aloe Vera and chamomile and anti-oxidants white tea and centella asiatica, so there really isn't anything in there that should break you out. All of the ingredients listed help protect the skin from free radical damage and help the skin in so many ways. If you have oily skin, this is the perfect Spackle primer to try! If you don't have oily skin, any of the Spackles will be a great fit. They all have the same wonderful ingredients and are oil free. Enjoy!
