Seriously dont buy this.

By Joce

from Naperville

Comments about Milani Prime Shield Mattifying + Pore-Minimizing Face Primer:

I have no words for how much I hate this primer. I have really oily skin, and was hoping this would work, but it literally made my skin look soo greasy. My makeup lasted a solid three hours, where it usually would last at least 8 without it getting too oily. I would give it a 0/5 if I could.

No thank you

Comments about Milani Prime Shield Mattifying + Pore-Minimizing Face Primer:

This is a very silicone feeling primer. It never sets into the skin it just sits on top. Then when you put your makeup on the makeup just kinda sits on top of your face weird. Makes your makeup incredibly cakey and heavy. Did not mattify whatsoever and actually make me even more oilily! If your touch your face at all sooooo much makeup gets wiped off. My makeup lasted longer and looked better without a this primer.

    Comments about Milani Prime Shield Mattifying + Pore-Minimizing Face Primer:

    This product didn't work for me. No difference in my pores no mattifying my oils came out in my T zone. I wanted it to work for me cause it went on smooth n easy but no change. I can't say don't try it cause everybody has different skin tones textures n problem areas.

      Comments about Milani Prime Shield Mattifying + Pore-Minimizing Face Primer:

      What I use a primer for is #1) to cut down on oiliness and #2) to help reduce the amount of foundation I use, and #3) to not spend a fortune in the process. I set out to find the best primer at a reasonable cost. I tried several of the primers at Ulta that were cost efficient. THIS PRIMER won hands down! This one cut the amount of oil that I deal with tremendously - WAY above the other ones. That's why this one won. It doesn't go on as smoothly as some of the others, but that doesn't really matter when my face looks like an oil slick two hours after I apply my makeup using all the others. THIS PRIMER IS THE BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK!

      Decent Primer

      By Mel

      from PA

      Comments about Milani Prime Shield Mattifying + Pore-Minimizing Face Primer:

      For the price this is pretty decent. I have an extremely oily forehead. I tried this primer alone and with a mattifying translucent powder. It definitely works better with the powder. It looks really good under Make up and smooths my forehead lines better than others. Without being set by the powder I'd say I started to get oily early afternoon. Not terribly oily either. I do my make up at about 7 am so I got about 6-7 hours before I started feeling slightly oily. Still much better than my other primer. When I set this with a mattifying powder I was good until the evening. Definitely not perfect but if you don't want to spend a lot this is a good product to try.

      It's a no for me dawg...

      By Syd

      from New York

      Comments about Milani Prime Shield Mattifying + Pore-Minimizing Face Primer:

      I have combination oily skin. I get reallllyyyy oily in my t zone and that's it. It's a silicone based primer it's very smoothing and feels very soft on the skin once applying. I do have pores on my face but they're not large they're quite small but noticeable up close. The product claims to minimize pores and mattify. For me it didn't minimize my pores and it kept me Matte for an hour after makeup application. I feel like I produced more oil with this primer on than without it on. If you're extremely oily pass this product but if you're less oily give it a try.

      Comments about Milani Prime Shield Mattifying + Pore-Minimizing Face Primer:

      I bought this because I'd heard good things about the brand--specifically the mattifying products. I have combination skin so my t-zone gets oily. I bought this primer hoping that it would help with some of the shine. It does a pretty good job! Especially if you add some powder on top as well. Doesn't last super long but usually gets me through the day, and it's on the cheaper end of primers so for the price I'd say it's pretty good! Would probably be better if used with other Milani products too!

        I was excited that this was oil free but still did not provide enough moisture for my face. I will continue to look for other primers.

            I used both and I think both are equally great. I have found my new primer. Before I used a more expensive brand and it was ok but this is just as good and saved me money!
