    Comments about Revlon Photo Ready Perfecting Primer:

    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.

        This product provides long lasting coverage for your next step(make up.) Its light weight and blends well.
        There's higher priced for sure, but if you want a reasonable price and a good product give this a try.

              Comments about Revlon Photo Ready Perfecting Primer:

              If you are only planning on using this product to reduce shine and matte the skin, it will work just fine. Once you start trying to put anything on top of it, however, you will begin to have issues. I have owned 5 different primers so far (Smashbox and pores no more are my favorites) and this one was the worst once I tried to put makeup on. It will prevent the makeup from blending in to the skin, and it is supposed to help makeup blend in. It did very little to extend staying power. I can only really use it if I don't actually want to use makeup and I just want my skin to be more matte.

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

                  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!
