It doesn’t hold the foundation well

The primer is good alone. But if you put foundation on top of it, it just starts to slid off. It doesn’t hold the foundation. I have tried it with two different foundations and the result is same. I don’t know if I’m doing something wrong or what. Is it just me? Maybelline Baby Pores is better option.

Wanted to like this product but it broke me out

I really wanted to like this product because of its price-point but it broke me out. I liked that it was smooth, mattifying, and it seemed to work with my makeup really well. That said, I put skincare at top priority so I had to let this go right away. If you're into a silicone-y finish, you might like this.

Love it!

I've always had trouble with primers because they always seem to just add oil to my face, so I've been avoiding them. However, I really liked Milani's eyebrow pomade so I decided to try this product out. It actually seemed to have matte-ified my face! After putting on concealer, my skin looked smooth, and my blemishes were barely noticeable.

Fave primer!!

Would definitely choose this over the Maybelline one if you need more oil-control. Even after 5+ hrs and no powder, my face stayed relatively matte and not shiny. The consistency of it put me off at first, and there's definitely the issue of putting more than needed and not letting it set on the skin for a while which resulted to weird clumping of foundation (especially for us brush users). All in all, it does its job and for this price point i'm definitely repurchasing.

Smooth to skin

I ordered this one based on the ratings and as they had said, the primer works well, it has a powder smooth feeling and has a matte effect right after applying it. But I have an oily skin and I think it wasn't designed really for oily skin. It works good for couple of hours but I need to apply face powder to reduce the oil on my face.

This product was okay for me. I wouldn’t say it’s my favorite primer. I found that it made my foundation oilier than usual and even after I’ve left it on for a while on my face before applying the foundation, it still caused streaks when I apply the makeup with a brush.
