I love this primer , to find a primer that really works for oily skin is heaven sent. I'm not talking about a little t zone shine I'm talking about an hour later and looking like vasaline smeared all over my face, well now that doesn't happen thanks to this awesome product.
I was very excited about this primer because it really does what it says. The formula includes alcohol which will dry and age you skin, therefore I will not be buying nor will I recommend to friends/clients. Please, please, please reformulate!

As soon as this primer touched my skin, I audibly gasped — no joke. This is the first time I splurged on high-end primer, and boy was it worth it. This primer is so silky and smooth, yet not sticky. It dries very quickly and makes my skin look completely poreless. I'll never go back to drugstore primer!

I use this product for oil control before applying my foundation because i have a very oily face. It's doing a great job based on my experience. This product is very expensive for what it does, but it's the price I pay for the need I have.

This product isn't bad at all I did notice a little less oil through the day but not as bad as I usually get.
Jasmine from Washington
It does the job, nothing special. I'll keep using it but probably won't repurchase.

I got this product thinking that it would work for my oily skin, by far the most I've ever paid for a primer and I absolute regret it. It feels nice when I first apply it but within a few seconds it dries to be so ashy and patchy on my nose, cheeks, and chin that when I applied any foundation on top the foundation literally flakes away and looks terrible. The first time I used it I literally had to wash my face and start my makeup all over again, the last thing you want in a primer. I was definitely better off without it.

I LOVE this primer. I've used several different primers from drug store to high end and this is by far my favorite. It works REALLY well with my Two Faced Born This Way foundation! Unlike the Benefits Cosmetics Porefessional primer, this Nars primer keeps my foundation intact all day and night! It's a little tacky but not too tacky and maybe that's the reason it works so well on my skin. But, either way, it's a keep and will be my go-to primer, especially when paired with the Born This Way foundation.

The consistency is very nice. That's all that was good about it for me. Upon application it stung a bit and turned the areas I applied it bright red; but this did go away very quickly. HOWEVER, when I applied my foundation, the areas where I had applied this primer flaked off in giant chunks. Will not use again.

I have oily skin and even after I put a matte finish on shine still pops up but not with this this is amazing

i recently bought this product because a sales associate recommended it because i am using the nars luminous fondation and i love everything about it except that it makes ny skin oily first time i put it on as it set i began to notice shedding all over my face it was the product i thought maybe i put to much or i didnt do it right so i tried it a few times smaller amounts and right after washing and exfoliating my skin and it still shedded off.

I love this primer. It really gives you a perfect matte finish before foundation. I usually don't get very oily skin, but decided to try this because NARS. It feels very lightweight and dries very fast. I can't say enough good things about it.
Mel P from GA
I bought this primer without doing any prior research about it. I was recommended to try it by a sales associate there at the store after she saw I had the smash box photo finish primer in my hand. I told her I normally use the smash box one cuz there's so many good reviews about it, but i felt like it wasn't doing anything to my skin & I also don't like the silicone-y feel of it. She asked what type of skin i have & i said combo (dry cheeks, oily t-zone). She recommended me this to control shine & to create a dewy, natural, yet not too cakey look & also because it has more of a lotion-type feel to it (which I love). After using it for a week, my final thought is this primer is where it's at y'all. No matter what type of foundation you use, this primer is going to make it look like you spent $60 on foundation. My sister, who has oily skin, even says it works for her when she uses her Maybelline Fit Me foundation. She says it leaves her skin nice, dewy & radiant. I put this under the natural radiant longwear foundation (also by NARS) & girl, let me tell you, my skin has never looked more flawless! & I definitely have acne prone skin, some acne/acne scars that need to be covered but using this primer will definitely cover most, if not all, your blemishes once it's topped off with a little bit of foundation of your choice.

After a 3 weeks I noticed the primer is like gum LITERALLY . Super hard to put on my face because it's literally like taking fresh stuck on gum from under your shoe and trying to work it into/onto your face . This USED to be my fav primer
Sam from Bend, OR
Well, I liked it at first. Honestly, I will definitely not be getting this product again though. I've found that it peels up very easily, and makes my foundation really hard to blend. In fact, the primer crumbles when I blend my foundation. Super frustrating.
Kat W from Fresno, Ca
I loved this on all skin types, absorbs into skin well- is not slippery. Fills pores and controls shine. It holds on to makeup really well. It's pricey but it's a lot of product so it's well worth it.
Kels from Arkansas
This primer is seriously amazing. My skin is so extremely oily that my makeup normally looks greasy and gross like an hour after applying. With this primer though, my makeup stays almost completely shine free ALL day long. This is well worth the money and I highly recommend to anyone with oily skin!
Shelly from Kailua, Hawaii
I love how this is like a lotion. So you apply it after skincare. It's honestly helped with my makeup staying put in very humid and hot weather (Hawaii). I sometimes use it in combination with benefit primer (t-zone only) for when I need my makeup to really last.
Melinda from Tulsa
I finally found a product that does what it says. All day control too. Definitely worth the money.
Bri from Reno, NV
This sort of feels like lotion and goes on nicely. It gets rid of shine and fills pores. Sometimes it is a little dry in some places, but I'll just take a wet beauty blender to it and the flakes go away
Mae from Dallas, TX
NARS really hit the mark with this formula! Usually a matte primer is either too dry or is too slippery with silicon to help anything stick. This one is just right!
Shon from Fayetteville, NC
This is the first product that I have used to minimize the shine when I am wearing makeup. I have oily skin and use to wear cheap products that did not work. I am definitely a believer in this product and will definitely purchase this product again.

Does really good controlling oil and balancing skin
RayeT from Lafayette , La
Have been using this for a little while snd I really am happy with this primer
AJ from Nashville
I was very exited to try this product as I normally love all Nars products. First, this product made my foundation hard to blend, it wanted to leave lines around my nose and lips that I have never had happen before. After a couple hours of wear I checked my make up and it caused my foundation to settle in EVERY pore on my face and my make up was splotchy. I exfoliated and tried again the next day and still got the same results. This is definitely not a product I would use again.
Courtney from Rancho Cordova
This is my go-to primer! It's perfect for my oily skin and just feels really fresh when I put it on. I'v tried other primers but always go back to this one. My skin never looks shiny at the end of the day when using this primer. Love it!
Ace from Washington
It's very light going on and almost feels like a moisturizer with how soft my skin is. Does great reducing the shine on my forehead and face.
