Most Helpful Positive Review great duo paired with foundation
I like the primer. It is definitely one of the best I have used, but it isn't the absolute best. I have oily skin and was expecting this primer to be completely matte and it is not. It does the job and I don't look shiny which is great, but it just isn't as matte/dry as I would like it to be. Great primer though! especially paired with Estee Lauder's foundation.
Most Helpful Critical Review Wanted to love it
I wanted to love this so much because I use and swear by so many Estée Lauder products. The associate also had very oily skin and said this was the only one that worked. The first time I thought it might be working after the first few hours. But by the mid-end of the day I could definitely see a lot of shine still :(

Best Primer for staying matte
Amanda from Arkansas
I've tried a million primers and always come back to this one! It goes really fast and it's a little expensive but it's the best I've ever found!
I most definitely will buy this product.

Best Primer for Oily Skin
kaitrenae from Buffalo, NY
I have tried so many primers over the years and I can't live without this one! It's moisturizing but not greasy and keeps my face oil free all day long. You won't regret buying this primer.
Moonmaiden from Indiana
I use this with ELDW perfect combo no break outs no shine or pilling a little goes a long way
Oily skin approved
Kay from Wisconsin
Been searching for a primer that helps control my super oily skin. This primer immediately removes shine from my nose and forehead. Keeps my t zone oil free for atleast 8 hours. I use it under tarte amazonian clay foundation and lancome foundation. Better primer than porefessional and smashbox for oily skin types.

I have tried other primers and this by far is the best. My makeup stays put all day and looks fresh.
It helps your makeup go on smooth.

This is a wonderful primer if you have oily skin (which I do!). A little of this product goes a long way if you are worried about the price. I have used many many different primers and this one is by far the best!!
Love this primer
Suzanne from Shelbyville, MI
I absolutely love this product. It goes on smooth and leaves my skin feeling soft without feeling oily.
Rachel from Saint Louis, MO
This is not a brand I would normally thing to buy for primer, but I bought this because it was half off and figured why not. I LOVE it. It goes on smooth and keeps my face from looking oily all day.
Super oily skin. Holy grail.
Jaylee from Chicago suburbs
Love this primer. Use it under my Estee double wear. Controls oil and shine and smooths me out before foundation application.
The BEST primer on the market for normal-oily skin
Seb from NV
This primer eliminates the look of large pores and fine lines. The texture is soft, without feeling greasy, oily or waxy. The results last all day and I never need to re-apply the product. Any foundation applied over the primer will have a smooth texture and give your skin a flawless finish. I cannot say enough about this product. I would award more than five stars if possible.
Love this product!
Paige from Stockton
I've tried a lot of mattifiers but this is the best!
Controls shine with my oily skin
Rebecca AF from Kentucky
I use this as a primer after I put on my moisturizer and before I put on my foundation. I use Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation. Originally, I was only using the foundation because I was afraid of the price tag, but I used some rewards points and purchased it and now I'm hooked. Using this primer with the foundation has given me long-lasting shine control. I work as a wedding coordinator and I wore it in 93 degree weather all day and this primer is the only one that's kept my makeup in place all day. So, I guess it's worth the price tag.
I only gave it 4 stars because of the price for quantity - the tube is smaller than I would like but the quality is 5 stars, for sure!
Keeps Makeup in Place All Day!
Emilykay615 from Moorhead, MN
I love this primer! It keeps my makeup in place all day, I don't feel like I need to be doing any touch ups during the day and when I get home after an 8 hour day at work I feel my makeup still looks as good as when I first applied it! Feels very light, Great for those with an oily complexion.
Irritated my face so bad!!!
Laura from Round Rock
I've heard good things about this brand but OMG this product burned my skin so bad. My chin has this red irritated peeling going on in the crease of my chin. Around my nose is so red and dry. I definitely would not recommend this product. My skin is really oily and now to have white dry patches around my nose chin and cheeks is horrible.
Susie Q from Yakima, Washington
I was really looking forward to liking this product especially for the price I paid! Didn't work out for me, oily within an hour of applying ...... bummer
My go to
Rachel from Wa
I have used this for years and it makes a huge difference with my makeup and how my skins feels...I have oily combination and don't have to reapply foundation throughout day.
Holy grail for my combo/oily skin!
Ferg23 from Texas
This is literally the only primer I've ever used that actually lives up to its "Mattifier" name! I top it with an illuminator which might seem counter productive but it keeps my face from looking stale for lack of a better term. I use tinted moisturizer on top when it's hot (Texas heat is no joke) and when I'm going more full coverage, I've used multiple different liquid foundations and they all stay put!
Not for me
Britney from East TN
I was excited to try this product because my friends tried it and loved it (they have nice, normal skin). I however didn't have the same luck. Yes, my makeup would look pretty upon application, but I guess my skin is just too oily for the mattifying effect to work. Also, for whatever reason, when applied to my chin (because that, too, is oily) it did leave a dry, scale like look to it.
Lilly from Lancaster, SC
This is the very first primer that I have ever tried and it worked well. It felt so good on my skin and went on smoothly. A helper at Ulta recommended this product to me once he saw me struggling to find a good primer. I loved it but I don't know what to compare it to since I just started with this primer. I still would recommend though.
LOVE LOVE LOVE
Tracy from Wichita Ks
I have been using this for a little over a week now. Makeup goes on and stays on all day like a dream. Is it pricey? Yes. Is it worth it for a good primer? Absolutely!!! I couldn't be happier. My fave feels so smooth after putting this on and no breaks outs!
Great Shine Control
PeytD from Corning, California
I love this primer! Totally controls shine and helps my foundation go on super smooth. Wish it came with more.
