It really works!

By Sydney

Comments about COVER FX Mattifying Primer with Anti-Acne Treatment:

I never thought I'd find a solution to keeping my oil at bay all day, but I've finally found it! This product paired with the Murad Mattifier SPF 15 underneath is my new go-to combination. I have combo skin, so it can feel a bit too drying with both products, but I have found that this doesn't keep my skin entirely matte on its own without the Mattifier underneath. So I use a light moisturizer (Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer with SPF 15), then pop the Murad Mattifier over top, and finish with this primer. It keeps me matte for 8 hours at least, and then I start to look a bit dewy (not even oily, just dewy). I usually blot around that time, and my makeup still looks freshly applied. When I wear this combo, my makeup doesn't transfer, doesn't cake up, and doesn't break down throughout the day. If you're like me and typically turn into an oil slick around the 4 hour mark, this is seriously is the best combination ever. It's a bit pricey, but well worth it. The only con for me (besides price) is that the texture of this primer is a bit silicon-y (I usually prefer primers that feel more like a moisturizer), but it's worth it for the payoff.

        Comments about COVER FX Mattifying Primer with Anti-Acne Treatment:

        This primer seems to be everything I need. My skin is oily, acne prone and fussy. I absolutely need oil-free products and anything with a little extra help to fight off acne is a win! This product is a lightweight gel that goes on and stays on nicely. I don't need a lot of product as it seems to spread well. It helps combat my oil and makes my makeup last longer. You get a decent amount, however, it is a bit spendy. If this continues to work as well as it has, I will probably keep repurchasing. I would say this is the best primer I have tried so far. Fingers crossed that it continues to do a great job!

            Comments about COVER FX Mattifying Primer with Anti-Acne Treatment:

            I got this primer on a whim because I wanted something more high end for my oily skin. I had started using the Smashbox Primer Water as part of my every day routine as well and noticed that it helped my makeup stay on all day. To be honest, I'm not sure if it's this primer or the primer water that's doing the trick, but together they work great! My makeup stays on ALL DAY LONG and my skin stays matte. Yesterday I had my makeup on for 18 hours and it did not budge. Truly amazing!

              This product is amazing. It makes my skin look so smooth and hides everything. Normally my foundation gets streaky by the end of the day and looks old. I've had the same foundation on for 12 hours and looks the same as when I applied. 11/10.

                    Hello Sandovallorena,
                    Great question. This product is not of a water base and does contain dimethicone. So it will have that slip that silicon has.
                    Hope this helps!
