PhotoReady Perfecting Primer by Revlon

"I have never used a primer when wearing make-up. It was always concealer, foundation, blush, etc. Make-up has come a long way since I was a teen so I figured why not try something new. The Revlon Photo-ready Brightening Primer came up on the sparks program and I decided to choose it to see what the fuss was all about. With this primer, it states you can use it without foundation for smoother and brighter skin and a more even tone. You can use this with foundation to help your make-up last longer. I always had issues with my make-up not lasting all day. This has really helped make it last. It comes in a pump style bottle which is .91 ounces. You really don't need to pump much as I found a little goes a long way for me. The description states that this primer will stay good for 2 years once it is opened. The texture of the primer is silky smooth. It is very light weight on my skin and when it dries I cannot tell I have anything on at all. I love the feeling of being natural. It has a pleasant light scent and the look of it is almost opalescent but not so much that it affects your natural look. It leaves my skin feeling so soft. My foundation goes on smoothly on top of this primer. The primer also gives my make-up a smooth look.I would not use a sponge to apply this as it will just get soaked up. I used my fingers to gently apply it all over my face. Revlon is a cruelty free company. Overall, I am happy with this product. I plan to continue using this product and I do recommend it. You will absolutely love the results! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-4821293980209014638-full" data-show="-4821293980209014638-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - walmart.com user

Magic Perfecting Base  by L'Oreal

"To start with, I usually use a well known product on a daily basis as I found that it allows me to have sunscreen and foundation on without breaking out. I was excited to try this product as a BzzAgent as my regular product tends to get pricey for the amount that comes in the tube. This is a nice sized jar with an ample amount of product for the customer to get several uses out of with ease. I decided to break down the product review into smaller chunks to really go into detail about this perfect base. It is important to me to keep my oily skin matte too, so I was excited to see how this product handled that situation. Texture and Smell: The texture is very light, almost like a whipped mousse which makes applying the product much easier. You only need a little bit to spread around your face and it sets pretty quickly. I like the feel of this product as it creates a very smooth base for my liquid foundation. I don't have to worry about really rubbing it in to smooth out the coverage, it is light enough to do so on its own. As for the smell, it is very minimal and largely not noticeable. This is important to me as I do not enjoy heavily perfumed lotions, regardless of how great the smell may be. I find it distracting and unnecessary. Makeup Base: This product creates a really nice base for liquid foundation, very smooth and polished. I've been using this for about a week and have been able to smooth it evenly before makeup during each use. Using this product after sunscreen dried and before liquid foundation, I was able to cover up any dark spots and larger pores on my nose and the apples of my cheeks. Also, I am naturally tan but the cream color of this base did not negatively react with my foundation, just made me look like I had really nice, clear skin. Matte Finish: I have naturally oily skin and worry about how greasy I may look after a couple meetings in the morning. This product allowed me to go until mid-afternoon before I noticeably became oily and shiny at work. Only then did I have to worry about using an oil-blotting sheet and afterwards I was good until I went home in the early evening. Overall: This base makes a great primer, and gives the finish that many of my high end primers do. It keeps my VERY oily skin matte all day, and my makeup doesn't move at all.

Honey Dew Me Up Primer by NYX Professional Makeup

"I have extremely dry sensitive skin. This product is a life saver. It is the most moisturizing, smoothing, amazing thing I have ever put on my face. It feels a tiny bit thick, maybe slightly sticky at first. Do not let that scare you away. A small amount of this product is all I need. It is easily absorbed into the skin, moisturizing and smoothing as it goes. My skin feels better than it has in years. It immediately takes care of dry patchy areas of skin. I use it all the time: at night, before I put on makeup, even after I put on makeup. If I have a dry problem area, and apply a small amount of this product, it does not rub away my foundation or concealer at all. I am very gentle when applying it on top of makeup, definitely do not rub it too hard into your skin or it may affect your makeup. If you have dry skin, I cannot recommend this product enough - GET IT. Cannot vouch for how it will affect oily or combination skin types. I don't think it does much to make your makeup last longer, so I would classify this more as a moisturizing serum than a primer. I use another primer afterwards to ensure long lasting makeup. This is completely clear when absorbed into the skin, no shine or pigment from the gold flakes. The bottle is small enough to be taken on the go, which is great for any bits of dry skin that may pop up throughout my day. Some reviews say that it feels sticky, I agree there is a small amount of stickiness right out of the bottle (to be expected as one of the main ingredients is honey), however it is liquidy enough to be easily used and spread across the face, and fully absorbs into the skin within seconds leaving no sticky residue or film type feeling on the skin. My skin feels clean and smooth and healthy after applying. This is my new go to product and I am absolutely in love. Worth every penny, and I will be buying this for a long time to come. PS - I also love NYX because they are cruelty free!" - ulta user

PhotoReady Prep, Set, Refresh Mist by Revlon

"I used the refresh mist before applying my makeup as a primer and after applying my makeup to set my completed look. It goes on super easy and feels just like a lift mist of air that dries super quick with a nice natural look. I like that the foundation goes on smooth, but I did have to use my fingers to apply cause the blender that was included on the bottle was a bit hard to use. The color that was sent to me in the bottle looked like the perfect color, but was a bit light for my skin tone and I have a light to medium skin tone. So when selecting a color I would go a bit darker than ypur actual skin tone. I like that it's not wet and doesn't leave your face looking splotchy or dewy. It makes my face feel really smooth and set the makeup nicely! This post was sponsored by Revlon® as part of a sampling activation for Crowdtap. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review." - ulta user

ColorStay Prep & Protect Primer by Revlon

"The Revlon ColorStay Prep and Protect Primer helps me achieve a perfectly smooth canvas prior to makeup application, by filling in large pores and fine lines so that makeup won’t settle in them. When I start my beauty routine with this primer, I notice that my makeup lasts longer, stays matte even when my skin is producing excess oil, and is more resistant to sweat and water. I also love that this product includes sunscreen, as many primers don’t. The sunscreen is SPF 37 and contains chemical (7.5% octinoxate) and mineral (3.6% titanium dioxide and 9% zinc oxide) active ingredients, all of which give my skin the protective barrier it needs against harsh UVA/UVB rays, keeping it youthful and even. Just be sure to reapply with your sunscreen of choice every 2 hours for full protection. Lastly, the primer removed easily with cleanser and didn’t irritate my skin, clog my pores, or cause acne. My only issue is that it contains 0.9 fluid ounces, which tends to be used up quickly. #sponsored [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]" - walgreens user

Mineral Infused Face Primer by e.l.f.

"I was looking for a primer that would add some radiance and glowiness to my makeup look and not cost a million dollars and the Radiant Glow primer is PERFECTION. I actually went to Target to re-buy the regular Mineral Infused primer (which I also love because it's a great dupe for Smash Box Photo Finish primer) but it was out of stock, so I ended up buying the Poreless Face Primer and the Radiant Glow. I wore both of them today, and 6 hours later, there's still no shine, I still have that "glow from within" look, and my makeup hasn't completely settled into my crater-sized pores on my cheeks. I like the consistency of both primers because they felt more creamy and less silicone-y than the Mineral Infused, which I like because it felt less heavy on my dry skin for summertime. I could immediately tell a difference after putting on the Poreless primer, my pores actually looked smoothed over. I layered the Radiant Glow on top and it has a VERY slight yellow cast on my chocolate complexion, but it's definitely more "radiant" and not just "shimmery", and once I put my foundation on with a beauty blender, my skin looked PERFECT. These are definitely new staple products." - walgreens user

TruBLEND Base Business Primer Mattifying by Covergirl

"Primers are always very difficult for me to find and keep because they never seem to work for my skin. I have combination/oily skin and the mattifying primers or skin smoothing primers I've tried in the past tend to make my makeup slide off or will start to split up my foundation. The Covergirl Trublend Face Primer was honestly so much better than I expected! I paired it with two different foundations and the primer helped my foundation stay on longer and definitely improved the textured look of my skin! 10/10 would recommend!

"My face is oily. Very very extremely oily. I have tried popular primers from the drug store tier to high end, mattifying, oil control, long lasting, but every single day at about 12 PM, my face was just covered in icky shiny oil showing through my foundation or BB cream. Enter my Ipsy bag from December that contained this Rimmel London mattifying primer. My first reaction was to throw it in a drawer of unused makeup. Then one day I decided to give it a shot. My makeup game was forever changed! I have used this EVERY single day since discovering it. My BB cream stays matte ALL day, from when I put it on at 7 AM until taking it off at 5 PM. The only place I can see any sign of oil coming through is right in the creases on the sides of my nose, and this usually only starts at around 2 PM. Once blotted super easily and quickly, I am good to go! I just can't say enough about this amazing holy grail primer!!! The next best thing besides how great it works is the price!!!" - walgreens user

Facestudio Master Prime Primer - Hydrate + Smooth by Maybelline

"Maybelline FaceStudio Master Prime Primer is definitely my new obsession! I am utterly in love with this product. I have tried a primer before but I didn’t care for the results I achieved with it. But this is phenomenal. I was beyond happy with how it worked for me. You can wear this alone or under your makeup. I wear it alone often. It is so light weight and airy. It visibly smoothes and evens your skin instantly and primes it perfectly. It’s hydration heaven! Hydrates and moisturizes is an understatement! It’s insanely amazing! I have super dry skin and get rough patches. So I thought for sure this would be a disaster and make things worse. Total game changer. I applied my foundation after using this and it looked unbelievable. No rough, flaky patches whatsoever and my skin looked so smooth, even and hydrated. It even feels great wearing it alone. It keeps your skin smooth and flawless all day. Very long lasting! I love that this formula is so light weight. You cant even feel it on your face. Which is great when wearing it under a foundation. It had no heaviness to it and I forget that I even apply it some days. I did not experience any sensitivity or irritation to this primer and no pore clogging! I would give this 20 stars if it would allow it! I recommend using your fingers to apply it to be honest! I tried both using my fingers and a blender and I feel like I achieved better results with rubbing it in myself. I feel like it also prolongs the wear of your makeup by hours and hours. My foundation usually wears off within a couple hours but this primer had it going strong all day long! My eyeshadow also stayed on twice as long! This is a fantastic product that 150% visibly smoothes your skin, primes it with hydration and is so super light weight you forget you even have it on! I totally recommend it!

Pore Filler by NYX Professional Makeup

"I was looking for a moisturizing primer when I went in to my local ULTA, and I was going to purchase Smashbox Primerizer, but my location was sold out. A sales associate (actually, I found out later she was a manager) recommended this to me instead. I was skeptical, because an oil primer sounded greasy and messy. But I went ahead and took it home. The first thing I loved about it was the packaging. Glass bottle, nice locking lid with retractable dropper. The second thing was the smell. The oil is lightly fragranced (slightly floral smell) which is nice, because I can't stand the smell of most oils. The third thing I liked was how it acted with my dry skin. I'm flaky all year round, but even more so in the winter. I've tried a lot of primers, but my foundation always seems to cling to my dry patches no matter what. With this oil, it smooths my skin and makes the makeup go over very smoothly. No caking, no flaking. I look airbrushed for once in my life. A small amount of oil goes a long way. This would NOT be a good primer for anyone with oily skin. The primer also required time to set down. Your skin needs to absorb it before you can apply makeup over it, or else your foundation will slide around. This primer does not make my makeup last any longer, but no primers ever seem to do that for me anyway. A good setting spray in combination with this is the best skin solution I've found. I'm very impressed this is a NYX product. I certainly saved my money. (Don't let any of the primer drip down the side of the bottle though, be careful with the dropper. Oils are very hard to clean up and will stain your clothes) « less" - ulta.com user

Tonic Primer by Bumble And Bumble

"I've never used a "styling primer" before and I have used a few better detanglers than this....but this product worked wonders on my scalp. I was traveling a lot between an extremely hot, humid climate and a cool, dry one. It caused my skin to jump between being too oily and too dry. It wreaked havoc on my scalp and caused inflammation, itching, dandruff, redness, and just overall irritation. My hairstylist recommended this product. She told me to part my hair and spray it directly on my scalp and massage it in. I could spray it all over and then reapply if I felt itching. I'm not a huge Bumble & bumble fan but this product changed everything. It has a light minty-tea tree oil scent that fades after application. When I spray it on it causes a cooling/refreshing feeling that just soothes any itching. I usually spray it on damp hair/scalp after it's washed, before I blowdry. It does help a bit to detangle my hair too but that's not the purpose I use it for so I don't spray it on my ends. It's feels very lightweight, like water and doesn't leave any stickiness or residue. If I spray it on my scalp when my hair is dry I use less so that I don't end up feeling like I have product in my hair. The 8 oz bottle lasted me almost a year. It really helped me balance my scalp and felt great. « less" - Sephora user

Glow Activator Radiance Primer by JOAH

"I wore this primer yesterday and I was actually very impressed! Now, it’s hard to rate primers right off top because it’s not a product that gives an obviously notice, however the moment you apply this Primer you see the instant glow/dewyness. I have normal to dry skin (mostly dry right now), I applied this primer (has a serum feel to it and applies very smoothly onto the skin), and used Joah’s foundation with it and both paired beautifully! I wore it for 6-7 hours and I had a glow the whole time! Even my husband notice that I had a fresh look to my foundation (and he hardly notices anything in regards to makeup lol) after having it on for more than 5 hours. I would highly recommend this primer! I would like to disclose that this primer was sent to me by influencer through Joah. #complimentary Less" - joahbeauty.com user

High-Spreadability Fluid Primer by the ordinary

"I've been using this primer for almost 1 month and I must say, it really delivers. Everything they claim it will do is true. "Creating a smooth, natural base, High-Spreadability Fluid Primer preps the skin for makeup application. Thanks to a lightweight, serum-like formula, you can smooth it over the face for even coverage that skims over dry patches and prevents product build up around the nose and eyes." At first I was sceptical as I've tried many high end primers and none were able to smooth my skin out and make sure that my foundation wouldn't build up around my nose and make my dry patches visible. When using this primer, my foundation glides on so easily and blends even better. It gives my makeup a natural finish. I don't get that oily during the day as before. It makes my skin feel so soft. I often use this without any makeup." - beautybay user

#NoFilter Blurring Primer by NYX Professional Makeup

"This primer is FANTASTIC! Benefit's Porefessional is my usual go-to, but I realized that I need to save a little bit on my makeup spending habits. Let me break this down for you: My skin type: Oily skin, large pores Consistency of primer: Not too silicon-y, but not too oily either. It was a perfect balance of both (maybe a little serum-y?) Blending: Blurred my pores INSTANTLY! Feel of primer: Melted nicely into my skin. Sometimes Porefessional felt like it sat on top of my skin Finish: Matte. I use a matte finish foundation, so not sure if that has to do with it. Bottom line: If you like Porefessional but want to save a little, GET THIS! I have only used it once writing this review, needless to say it has exceeded my expectations." - ulta user

Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer by NYX Professional Makeup

"NYX Angel Veil was another primer I took a chance on to find a primer that would work with my oily skin. I had tried numerous products such as Benefit's Porefessional, Smashbox Pore Minimizing Primer, Loreal Pore Vanisher, Rimmel's Stay Matte etc. I was never completely satisfied with any of the effects of these and I heard from a friend to give this a shot. I really love this product because I do find it helps my makeup last all throughout the day. It is a dream to apply. Very lightweight and soft, like a feather. I feel it gives my face a very diffused, smooth effect. Oil will appear throughout the day but its nothing a little powder or oil blotting sheet can't fix. Whats most important is that even if I do get some oil it doesn't ruin or cause my face makeup to slip around. I have also heard this is a dupe for an Hourglass primer, but I can't vouch for that since I have not tried out the Hourglass one. All in all I love this primer for its smoothing, diffusing effect! Also as a little bonus I do find it blurs the look of my pores which is a always a plus! A moderately priced quality primer. The cute packaging doesn't hurt either!" - ulta user

"I have the oiliest skin in the world! I got this as a sample and ordered it the following day. My skin finally looks great! I've tried dozens of anti-shine products and wasted so much money, this stuff does so many things in one. First, it minimizes my pores, then leaves my skin silky smooth and entirely matte, it does not move around my foundation whatsoever. The two most wonderful things are that (a) the oils in my skin are no longer oxidising my foundation (ever seem like your foundation keeps getting darker the oilier you get?) and (b) I fell asleep with my makeup on, mind you I'd put my makeup on around 9 am, did not powder even once throughout the day!!, I woke up the following morning and still not a single spot of shine. I was and am blown away by this product, I'm very grateful to BH for carrying it.

What I love about this product is how it helps my foundation to last longer with this it can last pretty much all day.

In Your Prime Hydrating Primer by Flower Beauty

"I am pleasantly surprised that this product worked as well as it does. I never heard of this brand and didn't expect much when I saw the simple white packaging. However, don't let the packaging fool you, this is an excellent primer. It does what it says and more. I enjoyed using this product and found it effective from the first time I used it and like it more and more with everyday. I have sensitive dry skin and have used high end expensive primers like Sephora, Channel, Smashbox, you name it and this product competes with all of them. It glides on soft and smooth and really delivers a long lasting base to liquid or powder foundation. I used it under and over my eyelides too and it did not sting my eyes as other eye primers have. It does help your makeup, cheekblush and eye shadow last all day. Incredible hold and stay on power. I wasn't thrilled that it was not odorless, however, it has a pleasant scent which quickly dissapates. I have and will continue to recommend this product and a few of my friends already agree with me that this brand is worth trying and venturing out into other products in this line. I am really happy to have chosen and tried this product, and for the price, its a real find. A hidden treasure in the cosmetics section. Less" - walmart.com user

But this is phenomenal. I was beyond happy with how it worked for me. You can wear this alone or under your makeup. I wear it alone often. It is so light weight and airy. It visibly smoothes and evens your skin instantly and primes it perfectly. It’s hydration heaven! Hydrates and moisturizes is an understatement! It’s insanely amazing! I have super dry skin and get rough patches. So I thought for sure this would be a disaster and make things worse. Total game changer. I applied my foundation after using this and it looked unbelievable. No rough, flaky patches whatsoever and my skin looked so smooth, even and hydrated. It even feels great wearing it alone. It keeps your skin smooth and flawless all day. Very long lasting! I love that this formula is so light weight. You cant even feel it on your face. Which is great when wearing it under a foundation. It had no heaviness to it and I forget that I even apply it some days. I did not experience any sensitivity or irritation to this primer and no pore clogging! I would give this 20 stars if it would allow it! I recommend using your fingers to apply it to be honest! I tried both using my fingers and a blender and I feel like I achieved better results with rubbing it in myself. I feel like it also prolongs the wear of your makeup by hours and hours. My foundation usually wears off within a couple hours but this primer had it going strong all day long! My eyeshadow also stayed on twice as long! This is a fantastic product that 150% visibly smoothes your skin, primes it with hydration and is so super light weight you forget you even have it on! I totally recommend it!

"First of all, I'd like to say that I'm the kind of person who gets puddles of sweat dripping down her face five minutes after putting makeup on (all the makeup on my nose is gone after literally five minutes, if it even lasts through the time it takes to do the makeup application--not an exaggeration). When I apply Skin Prep Pro to clean, dry skin, it works WONDERFULLY! My makeup stays on for at least 8-10 hours, with minimal to no sweating. It's great! I'll definitely be using this on clients, especially brides! I've also tried this over moisturizer, but it was highly ineffective. Clean, dry skin is the way to go!Now, this clearly isn't the best thing for your skin. Denatured alcohol, aluminum, witch hazel? As an esthetician, I could never recommend someone use this on a regular basis, as it is comedogenic and can easily sensitize your skin. This is definitely a product to be used for special occasions, photo shoots under hot lights, brides, etc--especially since it's most effective on clean, dry skin, which means no moisturizer or spf (GAH! An esthetician's nightmare!). And PLEASE be sure that you or your client cleanse their face thoroughly and properly after using this product, to minimize potential damage to the skin.All in all, wonderful product! This will definitely be in both my professional kit and my personal collection! Less" - sleekshop.com user

Porefection! Pore Minimizer by w7

"I suffer with enlarged pores and oily skin but I dont anymore when using this product. It feels oily when applying it to skin but as soon as you apply it starts to turn more chalky but smooth with no dusty residue and fills pores nice and easy. I work 11 hour shifts and it lasts for the whole duration (which I was VERY surprised at) I thought its just another fad but after previously using an 18 pore minimiser (yes 18) it was good but didnt last long maybe a few hours and it was a really thick product. I highly recommend this for this price its a bargain! What you got to lose. " - ebay.com user

Perfecting Primer Multitasking Primer Stick by BH Cosmetics

"and feels about as smooth too.In all seriousness though, this product has a really nice texture; it feels oily when you rub your finger in it, but it quickly dries on your face into what feels like a very fine powder that nevertheless stays in place. It feels really light on my skin and I can't wait to try using it under my makeup tomorrow. It looks pigmented when you open up the tube, but a little product goes a long way, so the product isn't that pigmented in the end. Perfect Light works on my East Asian skin pretty well; I'm somewhere around NC25. I was looking around for swatches of Perfect Light against Asian skin and couldn't find any, so I hope this is helpful. " - bhcosmetics.com user
