How to Use
Rated 4.3 out of 5 stars
I have oily combo skin and in the summer/humidity I get oily FAST! I have been on the hunt for a primer and a system to make me matte all day long. This is one of the few primers that has worked!! I put my makeup on in the mid morning and take it off around 11:30pm or midnight and I'm just then starting to get my oils to show - and no blotting, no reapplying makeup! Getting oily used to happen by 2pm. What an improvement!! Now I have also been following the trick that the Clinique makeup artist at Ulta taught me....
1) put on primer
2) Powder your face, especially areas where you get oily. You are building a layer for the oils to hit first before getting to your foundation.
3) Setting Spray - use a few sprays over what you just powdered to set that layer.
4) Foundation and Concealer - if you use a water based primer, use a water based foundation - if you used a silicone based concealer use a silicone based foundation. Oil (silicone) and water don't mix. They will slip slide around against one another.
5) Bake undereyes, if you do that, and powder the rest of your face
6) continue with the rest of your makeup
7) sweep of excess powder from baking
8) Setting Spray to seal the deal!
May be a lot of steps but All together they help to form a layer to block the oils from coming through. Hallelujah!! Finally!! I'm not a dripping mess!
Using these steps makes using this primer really shine a silicone the great mattifying product it is. Hope this helps one of you as much as this person's tips helped me. Good luck, beauties!
I bought this and was so excited because I love both the pro-matte and pro-dewy/glow foundation. I am combo oily in T-zone and both foundations are long lasting and the pro-matte is amazing to keep my oils at bay all day. I wanted to use this primer with the pro-glow to keep my oils away longer but this did absolutely nothing. I almost want to say I was more oily then if I use the pro-glow on it's own. it spreads beautifully and felt great on my skin when I applied but I saw now benefit. returning

Used it, worked great for the first time. I have pretty oily skin so it lasted a good 2 hours before it started to let all my makeup slip. But the worst thing imaginable happened.
I broke out terribly!!!! It's been 4 Months since I've used this and my skin hasn't recovered!!
Sadly didn't work for me but it might work for you!

I really like this primer. Goes on very nice, helps with the makeup and the price is right!

I had this primer for a while but every time I would use it, my make up always lasted on my oily skin. Highly recommend

This primer works for my oily skin type but I also moisturize before I do my makeup.
Meg from Florida
Use before foundation. Smooths my skin and is the perfect base for an oil-free day!

Broke Me Out- Smells Chemically. On the other hand, the little pink Loreal primer in the small jar is one of my favorites.

best one i've ever used i have really oily skin it makes me look matte it doesn't have smell which is great and evens out my skin tone
amanda from brooklyn
matte finish in deed. I only apply this is target areas (t zone) avoiding my cheeks which don't get oily or AS oily. this product dries down unlike silicone-y primers so the foundation doesn't move on top. Yes some oil will leak thru but I bolt with tissue paper throughout my 12 hour shift and my makeup looks great when I get home.

All primers are to prep your skin for makeup. However, I have really oily skin that I use a healthy balance of mattifying products with a ratio to hydrating products. However, this product did not deliver and left a sticky residue on my face. Maybe it's just my own skin, but please take heed.

Every time I use this primer my foundation looks textured and gross. The same foundation looks fine with other primers. I'd pass on this.
A from Champaign, IL
Love this! This primer gives your skin an extremely smooth feel before applying foundation. Works amazing on hot/humid days or long nights out. I recently bought a $50 primer and this one works so much better. Can't imagine not using it
ATL Girl from Atlanta
I have extremely oily skin and this keeps me matte for the entire workday. By the end of the day my makeup looks like skin instead of an oil slick.
Haley from New York
Okay so I bought this primer a few months back and I didn't really use it that much. I recently started using it again and at first I fell in love with it, but then a few days after using it I noticed my skin was starting to break out. If you have acne prone skin I wouldn't recommend using this product. But I did notice that it helped a little bit with my oily skin.
JC from Georgia
Tried the glow version of this first as I thought the matte would be too drying, but it's not and like the matte better.
makeupgirl5 from KY
This primer did not control my oil or keep my face matte, even using a "mattifying" foundation over it. This product did not do much to smooth, pods fill, or mattify so if you're looking for a good primer, I would not recommend this one.

I use this product when I use my Infallible Matte foundation & I really like using the two (2) products together.
nik from texas
I used this multiple times wanting to like it, but eventually felt it didn't do anything, just added an extra step that did not look better or worse really.
Michelle from Niles, Ohio
Helps with controlling oil but not for 24 hours as advertised.
Cjohnson231 from Illinois
This primer survives it all!!! Sweat? Never happened. Coworker sprayed water on your face? Nothing budges!
dude from colorado
It's matte when it goes on, but after you finish doing your makeup, your face is oily. I wish I was joking.
Monty4584 from Bronx, NY
Awesome, really shimmers, helps tightens skin, giving a firm feel. Also gives an all-time coverage.
Alyssa from PNW
This and the Lancôme teint idole foundation is a match made in heaven. I will never buy another primer. I have oily skin and every other primer has left my foundation feeling weird or separating throughout the day or looking cakey. If you're looking for a drugstore primer, put down the NYX angel veil and look to this one
PurpleKat53 from Lockport NY
I love the fact that it hides my pores and gives me that flawless finish however it leaves little white flex all over my face and that I didn't like that's why I gave it three stars
