    Comments about Estée Lauder The Smoother Universal Perfecting Primer:

    I never really cared to use primer until I tried this one. I've tried several and they never seemed to do their job. This primer does everything it promised. I will no longer go without.

                  Comments about Estée Lauder The Smoother Universal Perfecting Primer:

                  Received as a sample and I love it! It made my foundation look flawless. I normally have makeup on for at least 12 hours a day and my makeup did great with this primer. It didn't seem to do any oil control, but it made application of foundation a breeze.

                    I have used Smashbox primer for years until I received this primer as a sample and now I will never use another kind. I have very oily skin but this primer stays on and helps keep the shine away.

                    • Q:

                      Does this product prevent foundation from settling into smile lines? I'm using Double Wear Water Fresh. I've tried the Mattifier, doesn't work.

                        Hi makeuplover - Estee Lauder The Smoother Universal Perfecting Primer is a lightweight multi-benefit primer that refines skin's texture while controlling oil and shine. It's perfect for anyone who wants smoother, softer skin. If you're having trouble with foundation settling, we suggest to first try using less. We've found that when too much foundation is used, settling can occur. Try it and be sure to let us know!
