            It's very grainy and not good for dry skin, I have to mix a moisturizer, and it's so thick that it's hard to spread all over your face but after I mixed it it worked good

            The primer is very oily (even though it claims to be oil free), it also flakes and makes good quality foundations look terriable, with both of those cons it makes my makeup flake and wear off.

              this was so so, if you have oily skin all over is 10/10, but if you have ANY dry patches so not use, it made those parts of my skin super patchy , i ended up using something like the top faced primer underneath to help with those areas, it's super long lasting though

                The product went on smooth. However, it doesn't last nearly as long as it should. I have oily skin, and this product was recommended by an associate in the store. I was oily again by hour three.
