Most Helpful Positive Review Great product for the price
This primer is very similar to the feel of the total control foundation. At first i wasn't sure with how "watery" this seemed if it would even do anything but to my surprise it provided a great base for my foundation & my foundation and powder wore beautifully. Glad a found a great alternative to expensive primer.
Most Helpful Critical Review I wanted to like it.....
I love the foundation to it. But this is not a great primer. It doesn't do anything for me. I tried using it with more drops than usual and it still did nothing. I'm over it.

Jessica from New York
I can't really tell how well this works as a primer with the match foundation. I don't see anything that stands out negatively as a primer but WOW, amazing as a finishing skin moisturizer! My skin is the softest when I wear this with or without my daily skincare regime.
It's a strong NO
Lane from California
I tried many, many, MANY times to make this work. Different techniques & all. This is probably one of the worst makeup purchases I have ever done. Leaves your makeup smeared and clumps up foundation in tiny little balls making it look extremely cakey and then removing my foundation. Total fail. Do not waste your money.
Made my foundation matte all day!!!

Works great with the total control foundation

SimplyMe from Moreno Valley
A little goes a long way. Love wearing it alone when I want a simple casual look to run errands.
Definitely for combination skin
SSolano from Ridgewood, NY
Love love love this primer! I have combination skin a little on the dry side but my face feels amazing when I use this! The matching foundation really goes on beautifully!
Hides pores so well!
Ct Penner from Georgia
I put this on before my foundation but sometimes I just apply it and dont cover it at all. Just add mascara for a little natural clean up.
not worth your money kids
Rylyn from None of your business
It has no coverage, it makes my skin look cakey, and it made me break out really bad. I usually love nyx products but cmon.
I loved it until I found a bug in it
Liz_oro9732 from undisclosed
I've been using this product for over a month now and I loved how my foundation went on until I found a bug inside of it I'm so disappointed
Good primer. Not for oil control.
Yoli from Albuquerque
I am glad I tired this and will def use whole thing. Not great for oil control but that is not what it advertised as of course. A good primer but for me I think I like the pore filler better. This one is not bad at all though. A little pricey but I feel a good product.
broke me out
A.C. from Mesa, AZ
I have never broken out and once I started to use this product it did. I really don't recommend it to anyone I put my foundation over the primer and it literally streaks and feels really sticky.
My New Favorite
Joblondie from Nj
Happy to have found a foundation that matches skin tone
Gavnah247 from San Diego, CA
Ordered this on a mad search for a replacement of my longtime favorite Lancome discontinued item. This product exceeds my expectations.
Great Matte look all day!
Amber from Chicago
I wore this under my normal make up look, for a really important social event. My face looked so smooth, and matte for at least 10 hours!!! Lots of compliments on my face that day. I am very satisfied with this purchase!
Lina31 from New Mexico
I have very oily skin and this helped keep it under control without feeling too heavy!
Kelsey from Mi
Didn't realize this gave a matte finish. Does not work on normal/sensitive skin at all.
augustbelen from wilmington, de
I originally had purchased this for a makeup job I had on set of a film, and I used it on the main actress thinking it might help make her face makeup look even more beautiful on camera. Well it did, and now I use it myself...and I love it!
kinda full coverage
monique from Hawthorne CA
I've being using this for 2years now it's okay definetly want something full coverage can get patchy and I have dry skin so it's not the best and I have oily skin to looking for something new
Total control drop foundation
Kelly13 from Beaufort,SC
Semi-Sheer coverage easy to use. I loved that there is no yellow undertones. Shows my true skin tone.
Great for Anti-Shine!
LoHa from New York, NY
I bought this primer to go under foundation but, the first time I tried it was when I was running late getting ready for work. I decided to try it on its own, just to see how opaque it would be on my skin (as a brown-skinned person, I've found that some primers give too much of a grey, white, or pink caste).
This stuff is pretty amazing; I wound up using it alone that day, leaving the house with skin that had no shine, but still glowed! I've since used it under both powder and liquid foundations and had good results (better with the matte powder than the liquid, but I've been extra-shiny this summer).
This is a definite keeper for me; the fact that I can use it both as a primer under my foundation and as a mattifying product on its own makes it a great value!
Love it so far
Linz8589 from Tucson, AZ
I recently bought this primer to test out and try something new. I really enjoy it and how it makes my foundation look throughout the day. I have a oily t-zone and this really helped keep my face matte, even is the humid summer months. It made my face feel silky soft as well.
Keeps my skin matte
Cortnee from Montana
I have very oily skin and this primer keeps my skin so dry and matte. have looked for a primer that keeps my skin this matte forever and I'm really happy that I purchased this.
Kaylacnnr from Rockbridge, Ohio
I love the product. It's lite weight and feels great.
LucyRdgz from Houston, Tx
I LOVE it. I didn't have a preference for primer, but when I used this one for the first time, I don't ever wanna go without using a primer! Especially this one. The texture is amazing, makeup lasts longer, and smells great. I just wish I was able to find a foundation (total control) to match me, unfortunately it was a no-go. BUT it still works AMAZING!
Less is More.
Elyzium from Upstate, NY
Just like with the Drop foundation I had to learn to use LESS than what I think I needed.
When I only use a few drops I have a wonderful soft result and it works really well with my combination skin.
ElizaDoolittle from Trenton, KY
I really wanted to like this primer. I bought it with the drop make up hoping to replace my more pricy make up primer and foundation. This primer basically did nothing but make my face sticky. it was easy to get out with the dropper and apply to my face with my fingers, but it was weirdly sticky. I ignored that, and went on to do my foundation and struggled to even make it look decent. This was returned along with the foundation.
