Roc primer is the best !

I have tried L’Oreal primer previously and thought that the results were all that I should expect. Then I tried Roc Brilliance- now I keep the L’Oreal for times when I don’t really have to look my best. The Roc goes on like silk and your makeup will stay on for a long, long time. It does everything it says it will and more. I wouldn’t ever use any other face primer- a steal for the price !

Not for sensitive skin

The Sephora makeup artist used this on my face as a primer before applying other cosmetics. I liked the effect so much that I purchased a full sized product. I should have taken the MA’s advice and sampled it first!I’d read reviews of this product on MakeupAlley and many users said it caused them to have breakouts. Since I have rosacea/acne, this should have been a red flag. But gosh, the product looked SO AMAZING on my face, it almost acts like a spackle for the bad areas and makes your face even for the foundation. The difference between your face WITH this primer and your face WITHOUT this primer is pretty obvious. To wake up to fresh pimples was devastating.If you tend to have sensitive skin, use the PHOTO FINISH LIGHT product instead of the original Photo Finish. After several days of trial and error to see if it wasn’t the foundation instead of the primer, I found that the PHOTO FINISH LIGHT product did not cause me to break out. The original Photo Finish is a gel, the Photo Finish Light is a lotion. On shine-prone skin, the Photo Finish Light fared better than the original Photo Finish.The MA used a foundation brush to apply the Photo Finish to my face and that’s how I’d advise it to be used also. When you use a foundation brush, it only takes a tiny bit of the primer to do your whole face. If you use your fingers or a sponge, not only do you get unven application but you use a lot more product. As expensive as this product is, the foundation brush will save you money in product.

Good oil control

This is really good at control oil and concealing pores. It lasts all day! I don’t like it for every day use though because it clogs my pores.

Expensive but Awesome

I wish this product was less expensive, but it does a great job under my foundation of making sure to keep my face feeling smooth but also helps prevent it from getting too oily in my T-Zone. At first I applied it all over. Now I’ve learned to just put it in dry or oil-prone areas to keep them Matte.

Perfect Primer

This primer isn’t cheap, but it was worth it. I have skin that easily breaks out with products (reason why I had to find a new primer) and this product did not break me out. This product feels so luxurious, it really feels like you are taking good care of yourself when you use it. I bought some for my mother and she was skeptical but loves it as well. I let my best friend try mine as well and she commented how good her face felt afterwards as well. Definitely a great way to start the day and take care of yourself.

Fabulous Primer

I don’t usually buy primer because I found that anti-chafing creams in drugstores have literally the same formulation and do the same thing. I made an exception for this product because it was sold to me with the Youngblood Liquid Foundation. When I used it with the foundation, I decided that they just didn’t work well together. Maybe it is just my skin type, but the finish doesn’t look flawless and the Youngblood foundation rubs off, no matter how much powder I apply to set it. HOWEVER, I have used this primer with my Dior, By Terry, NARS, Mac, and Laura Mercier foundations, and I am very pleased with its performance. This primer is truly a pleasure to apply, it feels like rubbing liquid silk into the skin. It helps my foundation to glide on and set with a velvety finish. I especially enjoy using this with my Laura Mercier, Mac, and NARS powder foundations, because it helps them stick and give me a truly flawless finish. I feel like it creates a barrier between my foundation so that my foundation does not get trapped in my pores. It helps a small bit to cover enlarged pores, too. I don’t break out at all after wearing this all day, which I adore because my skin is very sensitive and acne-prone. In fact, my skin is abnormally calm after wearing this under my foundation.Another thing I love about this primer is the packaging. The packaging on this product deserves 10 stars. The pump is nice, and delivers a consistent amount of product. The plastic packaging doesn’t feel cheap, it feels durable. It’s lightweight, which makes it easy to stow in a makeup bag or purse, especially because it has a pump and a cap that covers it, so no worries about it getting into my bag. The nice thing about this packaging is that as the product is pumped out, the bottom of the bottle actually moves up, so the rest of the product is pushed up to where the pump can suck it out. Ingenious! I wish my Dior Foundation was packaged like this. Did I mention that the top can also be screwed off?In conclusion, I feel like primer, and especially this primer, is a luxury. It’s something that I can live without. I would repurchase this at a $20 price tag on the basis that the packaging is ingenious and a pleasure to use, and that it calms my skin. Otherwise, I could skip it.

I LOVE this stuff!!

I’ve been using this primer for a couple of years. During that time, I’ve tried other primers that received top reviews and I always go back to this one. This is by far the very best primer out there. Not only does it create a “silky finish” for applying makeup, it reduces the appearance of my fine lines. I’ll be using this forever.

I’ve reordered this several times now

This primer goes on very smoothly and allows make up and foundation to go on beautifully and stay on longer.The green tinge definitely deals with the redness in my face better – it doesn’t eradicate it, but it lessens it, and makes the foundation more effective.I have gone out frequently just using it and a light powder. The powder alone would not have been sufficient, but with this primer, I feel completely made up, but not at all caked over…I like the way it feels and the fact that it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin and very sensitive eyes.

It’s Ok

I’m not as impressed with this item as I thought I would be. I naturally have a red nose & cheeks and I was so excited when I read this temporarily got rid of the redness before you put your makeup on. For me, it only slightly got rid of redness…I still have to use a caked-on layer of concealer on my nose & cheeks to get my face uniform. I feel like I’m squirting a lot of it on my finger…with my previous primer I didn’t have to use as much. Maybe I’m supposed to use a big quarter size to get my redness out, but it’s too small & too expensive to use that much!I will not buy this product again, because it’s too expensive to just be an "ok" primer.

Disappointed – not for airbrush gun

This primer is not for airbrush gun , that is a fact as I never saw a airbrush gun spraying so heavy liquid , as mentioned before it is like yogurt , however the product works as well , but I had to apply it with a brush and not airbrush as it would never works, on this point I am thinking is the product old already ? there was some issues I purchased other stuff one one time it was working fine the other time it was to tick , so I don’t know in this case .. as I never used this primer before , it prevent the skin from drying as well but the reason I purchased it was to use with my airbrush gun and that why I give it 1 star for false advertisement

Great primer but not for Airbrush

It is a great primer but it is so thick that it just sits in my airbrush and even with my medium there is no way i can thin it enough to make it airbrush consistency so I think it is a good primer if you use it as a lotion and not for airbrush. Also be aware that there is no return on this product.

Awesome! 🙂

I’m 17 and i love love love this primer. First off the description here on amazon says it helps with yellow undertones, but actually it eliminates all of the oil on my face, leaving it perfect just like a model’s. And it beautifully brightens my face and leaves my skin feeling silky. It looked like i had just went to a makeup salon. It’s perfect! I highly recommend, especially if your skin is oily like mine. 🙂

What a disappointment

I bought this along with a NYX eyeshadow primer, since both items had good reviews, but I was not happy with either product. This comes in a gel form (as most face primers do) and it feels a little greasy at first but goes on smoothly. Unfortunately, once I started applying make up, it balls up and I ended up with little “pills” of foundation and primer all over, not a good sight! I waited plenty of time for it to dry up and it still happened. I used it for a week along with the eyeshadow primer, and both products performed miserably. It made for a bad makeup week, and not many vacation pictures, I can tell you that. Save your money for something else.

This product was okay

I like NYX products but was disappointed in the color correcting power it provides. It just didn’t work for me but may work for someone else. I love NYX eyebrow compact as well as the white cream for the eyes. The white cream really brings out my eyes as a base under shadow, a plus because I wear glasses.

Great for the price

For the price, I’m exceptionally happy. Hides pores as well as the professional stuff. I don’t know that I would ever fall asleep with this on as I’m sure some of the fillers are cheaper ingredients and not as good for your skin but it definitely gives you a clean smooth base for makeup application. I’m happy with it and would (will) buy again.

Works as advertised

Bought this at a local discount department store yesterday and discovered how well this works today. This morning I applied the primer before using the Almay Smart Shade make-up. I then applied some powdered blusher. Within minutes my middle-aged skin, that has rosacea, looked smoother and less red. I was amazed. This is the best my skin has looked in years. I now look forward to using make-up as I can see how this small effort makes a difference in how I look.I highly recommend this easy to use product.

Looking for more correction and it made me breakout.

I was hopeful that this would cover the redness on my face so I wouldn’t have to wear a lot of foundation. Whether or not i use this product I still need the same amount of foundation for coverage of the redness. My redness isn’t bad by any means for reference. I also found this product makes me breakout if I have it on all day, so I definitely wouldn’t fall asleep with it on. I hope this works for you but I definitely wouldn’t buy this again. I’m going back to Smashbox. That worked for me.

It does what it claims

This product fills in lines/wrinkles. It smooths out the skin making your skin a very good primed surface for foundation or powdered minerals. This was a present from my daughter the skin care specialist. I did not know it was so pricey. BUT it really really works. So I will be getting some more soon.

Love This

I had never wanted to use a primer before. But I had microdermabrasion done two months ago and the technician put this on my face afterward. It was wonderful. So I bought the product and I can’t love it more. It goes on like silk, it’s nourishing, soft and practically invisible. It smooths out discolorations and lines. It can also be combined with a little of the bronzer to give a little tint. Then you can put your regular makeup over it. (I use Lancome.) It is so light, does not feel heavy, and it seems to protect and repair your skin.
