    Comments about Cargo blu_ray Activating Face Primer:

    I love most Cargo products, and decided to give this a shot. It is easy to apply, however my face was shiny most of the day, and my makeup appeared "caked on" around my nose. I now use Smashbox Photo Finish Primer, which keeps my makeup matte and cake-free. The funny thing is, I'm using Smashbox Primer with Cargo OneBase Concealer and Cargo Foundation. Different strokes for different folks.

      Comments about Cargo blu_ray Activating Face Primer:

      I'm a 20 year old chick with oily and acne prone skin. THIS IS THE ONLY PRIMER I WILL EVER USE. I love that it is silicone-free... it is the only primer that won't break me out. The texture is so lovely! It's absolutely matte and controls my oil all day. I put it on this morning around 9 am... I haven't blotted my face with powder all day, and my face is STILL MATTE and oil free 12 hours later!! If you have oily skin GET THIS. IT IS BEAUTIFUL AND FEELS LIKE A DREAM.

        Comments about Cargo blu_ray Activating Face Primer:

        I went into Ulta with birthday gift cards to spend so I wanted to try somethings I normally could never justify the amount of money spent. The lady running the cargo stand was so great. Showing me this product completely changed my opinon of all the foundations I own. I thought it was the makeup I was using that sucked, but she showed me that with the proper primer, all those foundations you try can look AMAZING. She compared a couple other primers with the makeup I had at home so I could really see how different it was & WOW! It makes my face look and feel like silk. I absolutely LOVE my foundation & skin now. Must try in the store at least, it is worth every penny!

            I use to use silicone based primers before and they just broke me out and would make my makeup look greasy. I tried this primer which changed my whole primer out look. Not only does your face makeup last all day and keep it matte all day. The cooling sensation when it is first applied is so soothing. All around amazing primer

              Comments about Cargo blu_ray Activating Face Primer:

              I had been using MUFE primer for a year now but ran out. I thought I'd try something different. I needed a powder too and picked up Cargo's blu_ray powder. So I thought I could pick up a primer from Cargo too. Just to try them out.

              I so far like it. The consistency reminds me of Smashbox's primer, sorta like a gel, but not quite. It makes my skin look very smooth and almost pore-free but I don't feel that it really controls the shine much. I still need powder as usual.

              Overall, I like it, but I think I much prefer MUFE for primer.

                This is my 2nd tube of the blu_ray primer. Ive tried other kinds, and theyve broken me out, felt to heavy, or just didnt work. Primer has kinda gel-like consistency. Its tinted, but DOESNT change the color of your skin at all (so wont need a new foundation) Mattifies skin; feels so silky. Keeps my makeup looking fresh all day long. (ive accidentally skipped it and my makeup was worn off everywhere I get oily) I use my foundation and then set it w/ the blu_ray powder. Since you dont need to use much, the tube lasts forever!! The squeeze tube allows just enough product out (without wasting it because too much came out)

                  Comments about Cargo blu_ray Activating Face Primer:

                  I was never able to find a primer that did not break me out and cause skin irritation. Until I found Blu Ray Activating Face Primer. I was skeptical, because I have had mixed luck with Cargo and I had tried so many other brands, but I have been using this product for six months now, and my skin looks fabulous and foundation stays on and looks completely even--like it isn't even there. People compliment my glowing skin all the time now. I use it every time I put on foundation now.
