    Comments about Clinique Superprimer Universal Face Primer:

    I've applied both after a moisturizer and without using a moisturizer but results are similar. This primer helps my skin that is combo/oily to stay matte longer than anything else I have tried!! My makeup doesn't breakdown or settle into lines either. I've bought other name brands that promised that and yet I still would be oily and my make up broke down and had lines. This is by far the best. I am typically oily after 4 hours but this one after 6 hours still no shine!

      Has a beautiful silky finish. Foundation goes on smooth and blending is amazing. Works great with a few of my high end foundations Nars, tarte, Clinique , Estee Lauder Double Wear. I set it with too face peach powder love the smell and is so much or better then my Laura Mercier setting powder.

          Best primer I've tried

          By Caroline

          from Salt Lake City

          Comments about Clinique Superprimer Universal Face Primer:

          I have super dry skin and this primer made my foundation look flawless. I love using full coverage foundation and normally I will have some dry patches of skin showing but not with this! For me this worked so much better than the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer. I always look drier than a desert and my makeup lays on funny with the Smashbox primer.

                    A:

                    We appreciate the opportunity to explain that we do not have a comprehensive list of products that contain or don't contain certain ingredients. However, if you would kindly provide us with the specific product names with which you are interested, we will then consult our laboratories and share our findings with you.

                    In addressing your concern about gluten, we would like to explain that a vast number of raw materials from many different suppliers and sources are used in the manufacture of Estee Lauder Companies' products. It is therefore not possible for us to fully guarantee that our products are completely free of ingredients that may elicit an allergic response in highly sensitive individuals who react to gluten. For example, it is possible that small amounts of a wheat sourced ingredient may remain on shared manufacturing equipment even after a thorough cleaning. We therefore recommend that you discuss this with your physician, because consumer safety is of utmost concern to us.
