A Big Waste of Money
I feel totally ridiculous for spending $25 for something that disappears as soon as you put it on your skin and does nothing at all.My mother used to say that some people have more money than sense. I’m sure that she would say that now to me. Luckily, she doesn’t know and I don’t plan to tell her.
Good, but I’ve had better
This is a good primer, it it a tad bit drying though you must moisturize well before applying this product. I still prefer auto pilot from Napoleon Perdis.. much better product.
This is your typical silicone face primer. However I do not find it fills in lines and pores at all. It just gives your foundation a smooth base to go over. However I have pores and this did nothing for them AT ALL. Didn’t really work for me. However if you have oily skin this might be good for you as I noticed it did absorb oil decently.
This primer doesn’t feel too greasy on my face. It performs OK, but for this to be considered a "high end" makeup brand I expected a little more. I still find that I need to do touch ups throughout the day. As far as the price goes, you get what you pay for. It’s nicer than the drugstore primers I’ve used but isn’t quite up to par with other high end primers. I guess I’m just a little disappointed because I love so many of The Balm’s products. Nice makeup is an investment for many of us, myself included, and I personally wish I’d waited a little longer and put in the extra money to repurchase a primer i know works great, like the Primed and Poreless primer.
TheBalm products have not disaapointed me. This primer does what it says and helps my foundation go on smoothly and stay on! I have normal skin and my sister with real oily skin did mention that she had to use a bit of powder to help with shine by mid-day. I have even worn this alone and it does help to reduce pore size (I have large pores) and give a smooth appearance. I have tried other products and this primer is by far the best. A little goes a long way, so this generous tube is well worth it for the price!
