    Comments about Maybelline FaceStudio Master Prime Hydrate + Smooth Primer:

    I bought it in hopes of having a good, inexpensive primer since I wouldn't wear any before. I have tried others that have ultimately broken me out and made me greasy. This does not stay on, my face is a ball of grease, and I have combination skin. My foundation clumps and fades in the places where I need the most coverage which for me is my nose, forehead and chin.

        I have dry skin, and this primer is fantastic! It's hydrating and feels almost like a moisturizer, but it's has a slight silicone texture.

          Comments about Maybelline FaceStudio Master Prime Hydrate + Smooth Primer:

          I wanted this to work so so badly. I saw the reviews from other makeup users with dry skin, and they loved it! So with the price point, and positive reviews I thought I would give it a shot. Well, the application is lovely. It's lightweight, and really does feel moisturizing. The application itself is GREAT. The problem is the wear. After a few hour, it lifts my dewy + smooth foundation off my face, and causes literal clumps of silicone. I can rub my hand on a circle on my face and it will roll off in clumps. I prefer the skincare routine + a fantastic moisturizer as my base. My theory is the peach fuzz on my face doesn't help. That it clings to whatever it can. So if you're a Latina like me or have a lil extra hair in your genetics maybe steer clear. Will be updated once I try it with a freshly shaven face, but as of now it's a no. I don't have acne, I have an even tone, and just dryness so I am sad it didn't work

          Comments about Maybelline FaceStudio Master Prime Hydrate + Smooth Primer:

          I have normal to dry skin and this is absolutely perfect!! It hydrates and blurs. Its still silicon-y but also completely a gel at the same time. It works well with any of my favorite foundations and my makeup looks fresh, stays longer, and looks great for longer. I love this and 10/10 would recommend.

          Made me breakout

          By Chey

          from Michigan

          Comments about Maybelline FaceStudio Master Prime Hydrate + Smooth Primer:

          My face is really dry because I'm on accutane. I needed a primer that would hydrate my face so my makeup wouldn't flake off, so I tried using this primer all over the face some days, and other days just in my dry patches. Wherever I put this primer, the next day I would have cystic, under the skin, and painful pimples. The smell also kind of threw me off.

            I recently purchase this item and you cannot go wrong ! The price is amazing compare to the high end brands I typically buy (smashBox). I have sensitive skin and dry patches in certain areas of my face. After applying this product before my foundation my makeup throughout the day was flawless. My face didn't look cakey Or felt like I had so much layers of makeup product.

            I have dry skin, so I wanted to try a new primer. so I picked up this primer, I'm so glad I did. it has a nice feeling to it, like a lotion. I just use a small pea size amount , only on the spot I have dry areas. it works great on me.

            Comments about Maybelline FaceStudio Master Prime Hydrate + Smooth Primer:

            I have dry to combination skin but I was also looking for something to blur my pores a little as well. This primer is super hydrating and blurred my pores! This was totally a great product for me. I didn't need anything to crazy blurring but also wanted a beautiful moisturized base. My foundation always turns out great with this primer! I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants a hydrating primer. Totally planning to re-buy when I run out

              Will this product work well under the maybelline fit me seat and smooth foundation? I heard it was silicone based and since the primer is water based I'm not sure :/

                Hi Abby! This primer pairs perfectly with our Fit Me Dewy + Smooth if you have normal-dry skin. If your skin is more combination/oily, this combination may be a bit too hydrating for your needs. We hope this works out well for you!

              Hi. It says this is "Formulated to target a range of specific skin concerns". What would those concerns be, exactly? I'm 42 with extra dry skin, forehead wrinkles & pores that need help, but I also breakout from too oily or pore clogging products. I also want my make-up to look as amazing as possible on top of my primer. Please advise. Thank you!

                A:

                Hi sassy! Time varies from person to person. As long as to the touch you feel that your skin has absorbed your moisturizer you can apply this primer. The same in regards to applying your foundation. We don't recommend using this on the delicate eye area, we suggest using an eye cream to help hydrate dry under eyes.
