Rated 4.15 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Surprisingly really great
I bought this during a sale and don't regret it. It really helps keep my foundation (Lancome Teint Idols Ultra Liquid 24H Longwear SPF 15 Foundation in the shade bisque), really matte. I have combination skin. My T zone stays oily, around my nose, and chin I get dry skin. This primer really surprised me on how well it holds up against my oily T zone. I usually need to reapply setting powder within 3-4hrs. I haven't needed to so soon. I can go 6 hours, and even almost 8 hours without having to reapply setting powder.
The cons, I find myself using a little more primer than with the Poreless one.
Most Helpful Critical Review Very glittery
I loved the product at first, as it seemed to mattify my skin and smooth out my pores. As the day went on, myself and others kept noticing chunks of glitter on my face and I didn't realize it was this product, so I continued using it. Every time I used this product I would notice chunky glitters in my face, so I tested it to see if it was this. (With clean hands), I got a dime sized amount of product and swatches it on my wrist. Not surprisingly, where I swatched it was glittery.

I'm not into the whole "dewey" look lately, and much prefer a matte face. This primer is excellent! Smooth application and it lasts all day.
Perfect size and it is a great product.

I use this product in my face before applying my foundation. Last all day. Love it!
Best affordable primer!

Little goes a long way! This product is very smooth and keeps your make up matte. Love this product!

Held my makeup all day works wonders!
Did not mattify
Kelly from California
In its defense I have found nothing to help control my oiliness.
It is a silicone base, felt more like a pote filing primer then anything.
Also kinda disappointed in the size of it when I went back to check the price.
I would buy this 10 times over

After I was my face I apply the primer then my face moisturizer and it's amazing and not oily

I got this just to try for something to blur pores and prevent creasing on my smile lines on the occasion I wear a foundation or bb cream as I'm not a huge makeup user. I only have tried it alone so far and I liked it. Goes on smooth and is lightweight (I don't like feeling makeup on my face), it is clear in color as far as I can tell too so I don't see it being an issue with anything else on top of it. It also didn't seem to dry out my skin or break me out which is a problem for me when I usually wear makeup on my face other than my eyes/lips. I will update if I have any issues with it under foundation. I plan on getting the full size when this runs out.

Possibly Broke Me Out
LinRin from Frisco, TX
I'm trying to incorporate a primer into my makeup routine and I have oily skin so I thought this would be a great option. But it did not control my oil at all, honestly made my makeup feel like it would never set. Plus I've started breaking out on my jawline, which has never happened before.
Jane from Pennsylvania
I have large pores and my face gets quite oily by the end of the work day. This worked somewhat, but not enough to make it through the day.
I like how this product makes your skin so soft
Trish from IL
I apply after moisturizer and before foundation. It leaves my skin soft and makes foundation look flawless.
Wouldn't buy again

I use this under my foundation or by itself. I have extremely oily skin and needed something to help minimize this problem and it has helped so much. No major shine

Love this product!
Syd from Washington
This was a great purchase! I have naturally oily skin and this was the perfect fix for it. Not super heavy or thick and just the right amount of matte. It lasts all day and doesn't clog pores or make my face dry out. I would totally recommend this product!
Great Ulta Product

I love how it blurs your pores and it doesn't crack your make up.
Great mattefying Primer!
JenC1985 from Wilkes-Barre, PA
I was surprised with how much I loved this primer. I bought it in conjunction with my Tarte foundation to try (which is why I bought the travel size) and not only does it keep my makeup on throughout the entire 8+ hour workday, but it keeps me from being shiny. I have combination skin and have a difficult time with my face becoming shiny later in the day and this primer is a big part of the solution! The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars was that it's a little pricey for a travel size.
I like this one a lot
Barb from Atlanta
I don't have a ton of experiences with primers but I ended up really liking this. I bought a small one to meet a free shipping requirement. I thought it was a little pricey for the size, but it takes a lot less product to cover my face than the Mary Kay primer I've gotten as gifts from a relative year after year. I have really oily skin and it does make a big difference when I want a matte look.
I don't always want a matte look though, but often I still use this anyway, because it does a good job of 'blurring' my crazy pores on each side of my nose. My face gets very grimy at my job; I usually wear a moisturizer sunscreen and CC cream, with this underneath. It feels like much more of a protective 'shell' than my other regular-use primer. I might try a couple of primers when I run out, but they would have to be a really good deal for me to not repurchase this (hopefully the regular size is a better value -- I do think it is slightly too expensive for what you get compared to other primers).

I really like this primer, I was using Lancôme primer but my face would feel greasy and shine by the end of day. So far I've tried 4 different primers and this is my personal favorite.
Good product but pricey
NSRespeto from Chicago, IL
This product is great compared to brand name competitors. I love it but the price does not match the size of the product.
This is my new favorite primer
Nudes and Naturals Lover from Michigan
I've finally found an affordable primer that conceals my massive pores and manages my oil in my t zone. I love it, and love how it feels when it dries. It also lasts all day for me.
does not have glitter
teera from Arizona
I have used this for years and, with the buy 2 get 2 free deal that ulta usually has going on, it is a decent price compared to some of the really bad drug store primers. it does the job. it does not have glitter like one person left a review on- twice.
Made my face breakout
