      Comments about Models Own Mattifying Face Base Face Primer:

      Like other reviewers have said this seems to just sit on top of the skin. It made my foundation feel really heavy and also made my skin feel really slick. Not mattifying at all and is one of the worst primers I've used.

      NOT OIL FREE. The

      Comments about Models Own Mattifying Face Base Face Primer:

      I haven't used this product. However, the fact that the description says oil-free when MINERAL OIL is listed in the ingredients is beyond me.

      will not buy again

      By desimexibrit

      from Charleston, SC

      Comments about Models Own Mattifying Face Base Face Primer:

      I purchased this because it has great reviews. I've been trying various mattifying primers since Bare Minerals doesn't make their oily skin primer anymore (sad face). Anyway, this is probably the worst primer I have ever used. First, it smells bad; like a cross between new tires and rancid bacon grease. As much as I love bacon, neither of those two things are something I want on my skin. Second, it feels kind of grainy when you smooth it over your skin. Lastly, I went outside for a few hours on a sunny day and it completely melted underneath my makeup. It wasn't even as hot or humid out as it normally is here in Charleston, SC. It was about 72 degrees outside. There's absolutely no way it would stand up to the height of summer here with 110 percent humidity and highs in the upper 90s. It's better to not have a primer if this was the only option. I definitely do not recommend it to others.

          It definitely takes the shine away! The only issue I have is that it doesn't seem to absorb. It feels like it is just sitting on your skin and I'm not sure it stays put when you apply makeup on top.

              I put this on before I put any foundation on. It makes my face feel super soft and doesn't make me oily later in the day like most other primers do.

              Didn't work for my oily skin

              By Gia

              from Upland

              Comments about Models Own Mattifying Face Base Face Primer:

              It feels very silicony and just kind of sits on top of my skin instead of sinking in. So when you put foundation on top, it just slides around. But these types of primers don't work on my oily skin. More lotion-like primers work best for me, but I thought I should give this a try.

                  Comments about Models Own Mattifying Face Base Face Primer:

                  i absolutely love this primer! i just got it about a week ago and it's surpassed the rest of my primers. a little bit goes a long way with this product, you only need one pump. i usually needed 2 from my previous primer. also, it's extremely lightweight! after putting it on, i still felt like i had a bare face. my foundation goes on SO smoothly over it. i love it! it's way cheaper than the majority of makeup brands, & when i got it, it was buy one get one 50% off! i'll definitely be buying more once i run out!

                    I use this everyday under my makeup. I am usually quite oily by mid morning but not anymore. This is quite a wonderful product! It works just as good as the Smashbox ones & the Laura Gellar Spackle but for A LOT less! I highly reccomend Models Own Face Base Primer.

                        Hey Maggie,

                        Thanks for reaching out at models Own!

                        Although our Face Base Primer is not officially listed as noncomedogenic, we have never had any feedback to say that is has been prone to blocking pores or any other issues since we launched.

                        Hope this helps!

                        Love from Models Own x
