CLAIM TO FAME: A new generation skin-smoothing primer with high-flexibility silicones

FAST FACTS: Lightweight serum-like formula increases the spreadability of subsequent complexion makeup; helps avoid unnatural and uneven accumulation of pigments around the eyes and on dry skin; acts as a light, non-oily surface hydrator for a natural dewy look; vegan formula is cruelty-free and doesn’t contain water, alcohol, oil, and nut

PERFECT FOR: Enhancing base makeup application

”This is crazy. Crazygreatness! I’m over 60. Primers are important to me. I’ve purchased the gamut of primers from lower-end to very high end. And when you get to my ripe age, you need a primer to smooth out the little (haha) lines and to fill in some of the heavier lines. Anyway, I ended up using this primer for the first time yesterday. I had an event in NYC and could not have picked a better day to use it. The weather was hot and muggy–the kind that melts makeup. My makeup did not melt. In fact, it stayed in tact until later in the evening when I arrived home. I have a more and very detailed review on my blog: https://atypical60.com/2017/10/08/prime-time-are-these-two-primers-worth-it/ Honestly, this primer is better than the higher end primers I’ve ever used. I’m hooked. And I’ll be ordering more. I’m blown away!!!”

”O.M.Geeeeeeeeee! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this primer - I never want to be without it! It makes even the worst foundation (I’m currently trying to use up a bottle of liquid foundation that I find super drying) look good. I don’t even care that it’s a disaster of a mess in the dropper bottle packaging - if it was poured directly into the shipping box, I’d gladly scrape it out and apply it to my face. (But for reals, if you did repackage in a tube or something, that’d be great) And I just paired it with TO Coverage Foundation and am IN LOVE!!! PLEASE, MONKEYS - DON’T EVER TAKE THESE TWO PRODUCTS AWAY FROM ME!!! ;)”

One drop goes a long way!

This primer really feels nice, and smoothes easily on the skin. It masks my pores (especially on the nose) and blurs the lines near my eyes and mouth. When foundation (liquid/powder) is applied, it clings very easily and does not feel nor look cakey. It does help make your face a smooth canvas for makeup, and can hold your makeup all throughout the day (I easily sweat, and I sweat a lot!) This primer comes in glass dropper bottle, but I wish it has a brush applicator instead. Though I must sat, one drop goes a long way!

Good make up base

It does the job of making a good base for make up--pores minimized, mattified and smoothen the skin and my foundation looked better. But I dont think it helps your make up last longer. Also, the product is very liquid, like flowy liquid which makes it kinda messy to control and apply. But that liquid turns to a powdery feeling once you apply on to the skin. A tip though is to squeeze-empty the dropper first before removing it from the bottle so you wont get excessive amount.

Smooth canvas indeed

After much review, I decided to purchase this one for my combination skin (it was recommended for that skin type). First impression, it is annoying that it looks like it has already been used (dont expect the bottle to be full). Also, the dropper does not do anything at all and can sort of feel like it's in the way. But as a primer, it really did the job. I experimented by using it on just half of my face. The one with the primer looked smoother and was also softer to touch. It also reduced the appearance of more visible pores and indeed helped with staying power. I put a bit too much though on my jaw (the dropper's fault) and made my foundation cakey. I noticed though that since it aims to provide an even canvas, the foundation (I used a powder for this experiment) didnt pile on as much as it did on the primer-less side, so my dark undereyes werent covered as much. Also, I was aiming for a primer that I can just slap on for quick errands without additional make up but found this one unfit for that job - too shiny. All in all, I'd say this is a good primer, fit for my combination skin as well as it does not make my T-zone oily, but I'd still search for that HG primer.

Smoothing and Long lasting

I usually stay away from product with Dimethicone since it triggers pimples and I have very sensitive skin, but not this one though. It did not break me out, it's very smoothing and it's not hard to apply. One drop goes a long way. I have been using it for more than 6 months now and it's still in good condition plus I still have a month long product remaining. You just have to be careful though, the applicator is just a dropper but it's not much of an issue.

Perfect make up base

I love how this primer creates an even canvas for my make up! It’s not too thick unlike the usual primers and it holds my make up in place. I have dry skin and this keeps my make up looking dewy and fresh for hours! I am definitely purchasing this again. I am happy that it’s not as expensive as other primers now I want to hoard because it’s always sold out!

A must-try primer!

I love how The Ordinary products are so affordable and effective, this one is no exception. I love how it's not too thick that you can still apply make up properly afterwards. Tho there is a bad smell when you apply it, afterwards, it fades. Another sad thing too is that the bottle quickly empties but I've read that it is totally preventable, you just gotta use and seal it properly! Even tho there are cons to this product, I'd definitely purchase it again because of how dewy it makes my skin feel!
