Most Helpful Positive Review Great for minimizing pores!
I have been using the green primer for almost a year now and it's incredible how much it covers up the redness on my cheeks. I have never been more impressed with a product. I've used high end primers that are suppose to work to cancel out redness but none compare to how Maybelline's green primer works for my oily skin tone. It really does a great job with settling into my skin and minimizing my pores, gives a really nice blurry type of finish, and is super affordable. A little goes a long way and is now a product I CAN NOT live without!! I also notice that my foundation glides on way smoother with this primer on and helps it stay on longer. Completely impressed with the quality of the product and the affordability.
Most Helpful Critical Review I didn't hate this...
I didn't hate this product, but didn't love it either. I used it in conjunction with the Maybelline Fitme Dewy and Smooth foundation and honestly couldn't tell a difference in my foundation application with or without the primer... so I'm not sure how much it actually did for my face. I use a moisturizer every morning whether I use a primer or not, and feel like the moisturizer and foundation provided plenty of moisture on their own. I also was not crazy about the consistency of this primer... I prefer primer to have more of a silicone texture that kind of disappears into the skin and fills fine lines more.

I like the feel of this primer on my skin. I have only used it a few times, and feel this product does better than some other primers I have tried in the past.
A staple for me
Caitlin from Alabama
I have been using this product for three years now and it's the only primer I use. I have rosacea which causes me to have a pretty red face most of the time, and I'll put this on even when I choose not to wear a full face of makeup if I know I'll be out and hot or exercising because it does it's job so amazingly well. Works great as a primer itself too, makes my foundation lay so well. I've used it under both the Fit Me foundation and a higher end foundation—Clinique redness solutions, which it pairs great with. I have sensitive skin and it doesn't bother me or burn like others have said. It feels nice when applying. Literally my only complaint is that I wish there was more in the bottle or the product size would be increased. If I wore makeup daily I'd have to repurchase it semi often, I'm about to be on my third bottle of it though because I don't wear makeup too too often. I love this stuff.

First time trying this primer and it does feel kinda oily or greasy but if u put the right amount it is the perfect primer! I'd say it did it's job the way I expected 👍

Doesn't really work
Not for Sensitive Skin
Tiffany from Texas
Within 5 minutes of application, my face started itching, and my skin burned for a couple of minutes after removing the product. I've got a few pimples already, and it's only been 5 hours since I put it on.
a big no for oily skin, but yes to normal to dry
Pao from Puerto Rico
don't use it if you have very oily skin, my friend used it and said that it nade ger face more oily, but for me that i have more of a normal to dry skin, its perfect
DO NOT BUY!! This BURNED my face!
Jennifer from Brentwood TN
I had only had it on my face for 30 seconds when it started burning very badly and I had to take it off. Nothing like this has ever happened with the other primers from Maybelline. My face feels like I got sunburned and is noticeably red and bothered. Definitely don't put it on your eyelids or cheeks. This is a terrible product because it's for dry skin so those using it already have sensitive skin and now it's burning it. Buy something else.
works for combo to dry skin

I wasnt expecting to like this primer to be honest, since I havent heard much about it. I purchased it bc I liked the packaging, but it really is hydrating and works better than the nyx angel veil on my skin. if u have dry skin get her she works like a charm
Good primer from VI
Came on time. I barely use primer when I putting on foundation but once I tried it with the maybelline dream urban cover foundation it looks and feels okay .
Didn't work for me
Feliz from boston
It had a super greasy and oily texture and just sat on my face it was super uncomfortable with someone with super oily skin
I recommend getting this
j from oregon
I tried applying this on my face, and I was so surprised how smooth this made my face and it also smells really nice. Also, if you didn't know, it is clear.
Doesn't work as a primer

Don't buy it
Great alone or under makeup!
Trist from CA
Love this product! It doesn't do much for me in terms of getting rid of redness, it only mildly corrects redness. I personally like this for no makeup days, as it does a good job of getting rid of the shiny look from my sunscreen as well as minimizes the look of pores!
mara from las vegas
first time ordering this and it smells like old baby wipes
Laur from CA
I use it and it's not bad and kind of refreshing but not a NEED. Ur probably better off using lotion. Kind of smells weird too.

Does what it's supposed to do!
Michelle from United States
I have sensitive skin, I occasionally use foundation, which its also from Maybelline. It worked well for me and it does minimize the look of my pores. One of my favorite primers, so I recommend it!
Cosmetic Queen from SC
I usually use higher-end primers, but this one changed me. I'm normal skin type. This helps my foundation go on smooth, and helped with the longevity. It has a lotion texture, very nice, and absorbs into the skin. I've purchased another one.
Karen from Niagara falls, ny
It left my face shiny and didn't hold my makeup in place like the too faced or benefits primer.
Have only used once so far
Jade from Auburn, WA
Looking for a replacement for discontinued Revlon pore reducing primer, have only used once & seemed to blur some, will need to use more to determine if a good dup.
VP from Sevierville, TN
This is a great face primer, blurs and fills in pores to create a smooth base for makeup. I also think bc of its texture, it also hydrates a bit which is always a plus!
Inadequate Sun Protection
Love4Cosmetics from Santa Cruz County
You can still use this as a makeup primer, but keep in mind that this primer does lack adequate sun protection.
JLB from MD
I have pretty large pores around and on my nose and this primer does a fantastic job minimizing them! I love the consistency, very smooth and feels like a light moisturizer!
