      Comments about Catrice Prime & Fine Smoothing Refiner:

      I bought this after I seen a YouTube video from Tati. I was looking for something to replace my costly primer. I am 35 and have combo skin with fine lines around my eyes. So I'm looking for a primer that blurs lines and pores and keeps the shine away as the day goes on. However this goes on smooth and helps reduce the appearance of lines it does not last all day. Half way through the day it started to wear off around my T-zone. As much as I want to love this I don't not think it's going to be my summer primer for the humid months.

          This product gets MAJOR points for being low priced. But it does what it says! It definitely fills in my pores and gives my skin a smooth look!

          I bought it because it was recommended by a make up You Tuber but it Did nothing for my pores it actually accentuated them. I applied it under the Estée Lauder double wear and you could see my pores from a mile away. I am 40 with olive skin so maybe someone younger with fairer skin would have better luck with this product

          Comments about Catrice Prime & Fine Smoothing Refiner:

          I love this! This really smooths out my pores and I have pretty big pores. I compared it to the porefessional and it was pretty much the same. I totally recommend this if you have big pores and a little goes a long way.

              Comments about Catrice Prime & Fine Smoothing Refiner:

              I have have combo skin with a very oily T-zone and have been looking for a drugstore primer to sub for my MUFE primer. This one feels very silicon-y and leaves me with a "slip", which I don't like. My foundation was sliding around right away even when I baked with translucent powder. I was oily within about 2 hours.

              Personally did not like this primer. Didn't think it did anything for me,, purchased a new one after a week of using it. Wouldn't recommend. My angel veil is personally way better for drugstore

                I got this product to try to test as a doupe for the Tarte timeless primer. Seems similar but has nit quite the same long lasting power as tarte but is a great primer for reducing pores amd smoothing prior to foundation application. Would buy again. Great option if you are on a budget.

                Comments about Catrice Prime & Fine Smoothing Refiner:

                1. I have dry skin especially now with it being winter this helps my foundation not to cling to my dry patches 2. I do not use this all over (my texture is more across my t-zone horizontally but I only use a small amount around my nose)
                * I would not recommend for oily skin I could see this primer not working and doing the opposite causing your make up to slide off. The price is amazing. I bought this because emilynoel suggested it and super happy I did.
