        Comments about Revlon Photo Ready Perfecting Primer:

        It's just not that great. It's a primer, it didn't make me break out and it didn't alter the color or texture of my makeup - that is pretty much the extent of its virtue. It didn't make my makeup stay any longer than usual. I have large pores, so I wasn't expecting miracles, but I noticed no difference with this primer. I have combo skin, so try to keep things on the matte side, but I was shiny in a couple hours after applying. Really nothing special.

            I'm 63 years old and have deep wrinkles, large pores, sensitive, combination skin. I've tried almost every primer available and some were very expensive. Nothing is going to take my wrinkles and pores away; was just looking for something to minimize and smooth. This was the product for me. Although I don't wear makeup daily, I do use this on a daily basis. I rarely post anything about a product, but this was worth the time.

                Comments about Revlon Photo Ready Perfecting Primer:

                The best primer I have ever used. EVER.
                Smooth and easy to apply, Revlon's Photoready primer is my official queen of my beauty stash. When used in moderation (a little bit goes a long way!), it will not clog pores, cause breakouts, over dry, or cake up. However, because of it's mattifying effects, I highly recommend using a moisturizer first for those with sensitive or dry skin.
                Worn below my foundation and powder, it provides me incredible wear for up to 18 hours, even in humid temperatures! It's incredible coverage fills in lines, wrinkles, pores, and more!
                TIPS:
                1. This shine-control formula can be drying to sensitive skin! Use a moisturizer first if you need!
                2. A little goes a long way! Be sure to apply foundation immediately after to ensure optimum smoothness! Too much and you'll clump or clog your pores.
                3. YES! It does work for eyelids! Just don't get it in your eyes!!!
                4. Pop off the black lid with a screwdriver or spoon when the pump can no longer reach the remaining product. With a brush end or stick, you can scoop up the remaining with ease! Don't forget to put the cap on between uses to keep it from drying out!

                Product seem to work at first but as days went by my oily face looked oily everyday. I do not use a lot of make up and still the oil on my fore head and around my nose and on my chin.

                  Comments about Revlon Photo Ready Perfecting Primer:

                  Here are my specs: Half Caucasian and half Korean; my skin can't decide if it wants to be oily, dry, or normal; and my skin tone is medium with a bit of yellow. I work in front of a computer all day, right next to the front door of the building, so although I'm not getting sunshine I'm getting a constant draft from the people who walk in and out.

                  I hate to give this product two stars, as Revlon is one of the two drug store brands that actually works for me, but it did absolutely nothing for the makeup. For a few weeks I used it with Revlon Photoready foundation (liquid to powder) and the foundation not only didn't stay on for long, but my skin would get very oily. I tried it with another foundation (I forgot which one), and while my skin didn't get oily, the foundation wore off as though I wasn't using a primer.

                  This primer is intended for photographs, but I haven't had my picture taken while wearing it, so I added one star because I don't know how useful it is concerning portrait photography.
                  I would not recommend this product for daily use.

                    I have fair skin, sensitive, and tends to be dry outside of my T-zone. I wear this product alone, with just a bit of blush and/or bronzer and I love the way it mattes my skin.

                    It looks like I have airbrushed foundation on! Totally evens out tone and color. I also don't like wearing any kind of full-coverage makeup so this is the perfect inbetween.

                    BUT don't wear too much, more than 1 pumps worth and it gets flaky and paper-y. I think it also helps to put on a good moisturizer first.

                        I use this over my moisturizer/sunscreen to give a smooth matte appearance before applying my foundation. Foundation goes on and looks better. But the packaging/pump is terrible. About 1/2 to 2/3 through the pump does not work well at all. It takes a lot of shaking and rolling to get the pump to dispense the product and then it comes out in bits and spurts. I don't like waste and it takes a long time to get it to dispense or you have to break the top off. I hope they fix this.
