    The overall primer was okay and worked but if just used alone it tended to flake off a bit.

    COMPARABLE TO NARS

    By Vanna

    from Cali

    Comments about Revlon Photo Ready Perfecting Primer:

    This primer is better then Philosophy & I'd just like the NARS primer, I LOVE it. I put it on half of the top of my head and showed my bf, he was amazed at what it did. It's instantly mattifies the skin.

      Comments about Revlon Photo Ready Perfecting Primer:

      I was skeptical of all primers, but I settled on trying a budget friendly option before tackling any expensive brands.

      First, Let me divulge what kind of skin I am wearing. I am very oily in the T-zone area and usually drier on the rest of my face. My skin ranges from fair to medium and is yellow based. I work in an office setting with stagnant/poor air quality which gets the oil on my face producing faster and my makeup just fades away. I break out from stress and makeup just makes it worse.

      This primer has canged my routine! After rinshing and drying my face in the morning I smooth a very small amount over my face (not even a full pump), eye lids and neck. A small amount goes a long way! The primer creates a smooth layer over your skin much like an invisible film for smoother application of makeup products. The primer makes cover ups for blemishes and acne easier too as the makeup settles on the primer and doesn't get absorbed into the acne.

      I still do get a little oily, but that is normal because you still have the same skin you were born with. But the oiliness is more even and instead looks like a light dew. I definitely don't mind this! If I were to go out in the evening though I would definitely rewash my face and reapply the primer and my makeup.

      Less definitely is more with this primer!

                Comments about Revlon Photo Ready Perfecting Primer:

                While this had helped moisturize my dry skin, I don't see it making my makeup last longer at all. I am not sure about whether it helps your skin look better or not in pictures. I would NOT use this if your skin is oily or "normal" as it would probably cause breakouts. But like I said, it has helped moisturize my dry skin

                Comments about Revlon Photo Ready Perfecting Primer:

                I've tried finding a decent drugstore primer to replace my expensive MAC Prep + Prime and I've found it! This stuff works very well for normal to combo skin. If you have dry skin or even oily skin you might not like this.

                The smell is ever so slightly off putting, but you can't detect it once it's on your face. The pump makes this so convenient and easy to use. I recommend rubbing together with your fingers and then patting this on your face, rather than SMEARING it on. The finish is much more natural. I will continue to repurchase this.
