    Comments about Cover Girl TruMagic Mini Skin Perfector:

    Does little more than turn my makeup into an unholy mess. Even if dabbed on gently, it makes any pigmented coverage cake up, leaving streaks and highlighting pores. Even if it did do its job, this product is a waste of money as I've only used it twice and I have hit pan! Would not recommend.

        Didn't work on top or under my makeup. If you apply after you have foundation on, it causes you to look cakey and blotchy.

          I love to use this on top of my makeup, it just keeps me matte longer than powder! It a cheaper version of Mally Beauty's Face Defender! I use this and powder and I stay matte for at least 4 hours, which is awesome, for a very oily oily person. I wouldn't recommend this for a person with dry skin.

            I have used it on top of my makeup and it does mattify and blurs imperfections. I have normal to oily skin and specially in this season i tend to get shinier.I don't think it lasts that long but it's easy to carry and apply and budget friendly (great advantage)

            Comments about Cover Girl TruMagic Mini Skin Perfector:

            I purchased the TruMagic Skin Perfector in 100 and the product was a major disappointment based on it's intended use. Some of it's highlighted claims are "controls shine, non-greasy, soft smoth finish, apply throughout the day for quick toughups just like a pressed powder."

            I've tried various applications: dry and wet use with the included round sponge, dry and wet with a makeup wedge, and with my fingertips. I tried swiping it on in a downward motion, patting it on, and buffing it on. I tried it under liquid makeup and over it. Each time, when makeup is put on top of the mattifier it emphasizes pores or any textured patches of skin. It feels great going on, true to "soft and smooth" because it's very slippery, so you think that makeup aplication will be smooth. But as soon as anything is applied on top, it clings and bunches up on any imperfections. Applied over foundation, it picks up and moves the products around for a more uneven finish so I would not say touchups are quick, nor like a pressed powder.

            So yes, the TruMagic Perfector does mattify, but it can not be worn with a makeup base without degrading the application process. The only uses that this product excels at is as a stand-alone perfector/mattifier without any other makeup product or, as I found by trial and error, as a lip product base to smooth lip texture, or to make application of dried out or matte formulas very easy and smooth, and it helps form a barrier to keep lips from chapping from matte products. However, because I did not purchase the product with that intent and because it's stated function falls short of it's claim, I would not repurchase it.

                  I got a sample of the skin perfector from a set that included clump crusher. I used it as a primer for my foundation. Everything was sliding everywhere. Horrible as a primer

                  This was not worth my money. I would not purchase again. It was clumpy and did not go on smooth. I needed another primer on top of this to get the job done.

                      This came close to being a holy grail product for my oily skin. It definitely kept my oil under control and my face wasn't as shiny as it usually gets but it broke me out bad! Had to toss it

                      I thought this would be like Mally Face Defender, which I love, and it is not. This cannot be worn over makeup at least not with the sponge ... it lifts your makeup off with it and leaves your skin very dry and chalky looking. Before I give up on this product altogether, I'm going to put it on as a primer and try that ... I saw that emilynoel83 on youtube said that it made her foundation go on really nicely when used as a primer. If you want a clear pressed powder, I would highly recommend the Face Defender.

                        If this product didn't break me out so bad, I would really like it. It mattifies both bare skin and foundation well. I used it primarily as a primer under foundation, then if I had shine later in the day I would touch up with it. When applying on top of make up, be sure to pat it on instead of swiping or dragging.

                        I haven't ever had a reaction to a silicone primer before, so the breakouts are very frustrating.
