    Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer:

    This product is cheap, lightweight, and non greasy. But it only controls shine for 2 hrs and if you get hot or sweat it stops working immediately. It doesnt hide pores and doesnt leave you skin feeling soft and smooth like other primers I've tried it just feels like you're putting a thick non greasy lotion on

    Not good on its own

    Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer:

    I got this in hopes to calm down my oily summer skin. Unfortunately it does not work well on its own. I tried it on its own, but it did not keep my oil under control or even shine for that matter. Then I tried it with a regular liquid foundation set with powder and still, it was not effective. I then tried using the primer alone setting it with powder, this worked but only for a few hours. Finally I tried it with a POWDER FOUNDATION and I stay matte for well over 8 hours! I have not tried it with other mattifying products so I cannot tell you if it works better with the system; however, it definitely does its job under a powder foundation. I have tried my powder foundation on its own and I got oily, so that is why I know the primer helped which is why I gave it 3 stars.

    Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer:

    As this was a new product I of course has to try it. I have very oily skin (mostly tzone) and this works 'ok'. It helps keep my shine down, but does not last. I am sure it would be fine for an average oily or slightly oily skin. It does not irritate my sensitive skin. It does not last through humidity or sweat. It did not change the color of my makeup and it did not cake up.

        I use this all over my face before applying foundation and also on a normal just about everyday basis on my eye lids before I put on eyeliner.

          Love this product... goes on smooth, light and easy. I don't like a wearing foundation so this is perfect. I can put this on and go and it gives me the light natural non shiny look I prefer. I have already recommended to several of my friends.

            Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer:

            When I first bought this product I was extremely excited to try it out. It smelled really good, however it was not that easy to apply. I had to rub it in a lot and it still didn't blend very well. It does control shine but not for very long. I would say that it only lasts for about 1-2 hours. I was really hoping that this product would work for me but it didn't.

              Comments about Neutrogena Shine Control Primer:

              I was really disappointed in this product. I have oily skin that gets shiny after an hour or two of applying makeup. This product made no difference in reducing shine. The product claims to create a matte finish, but this only lasts for a couple minutes.

              This is a really good primer! I use this one and a Clinique super primer mixed together and I use it sometimes on its own and it is such a good primer! Definitely going to get more!

                I have oily skin and work hectic 12 hr shifts as a nurse. I wear minimal makeup, usually loose powder and mascara. This works well so far. Not quite as good as the prestige brands but better than say Nyx or some other shelf brands. It smooth and doesn't feel greasy or heavy.
