SkinPerfect Primer SPF30 by Dermalogica

"I was sent this product and fell in love. I have very oily skin and I have a difficult time using makeup primers because of it. I am also sensitive to silicone based products and have tried other primers with silicone and had no success with them. At first I was hesitant to use this primer because it contained silicone but this is not your run of the mill silicone primer. The texture is smooth and easy to apply. It's tinted but the color fades to almost clear. It has just enough color to even out slight skintone discoloration without altering your skin color or undertones so you can still use your regular shade of makeup. A little goes a very long way and you only need a little to spread on your face. I have used it two different ways. One as a spot primer to help even out texture and flaws and then another as a full face primer. Both worked splendidly. My skin felt great, and my makeup lasted all day!!! What makes this product special is that it's a skin treatment, a primer and it helps to protect your skin from the dangerous rays from the sun. I love that this has an SPF 30 but you don't smell the SPF or feel the burn some products with SPF can cause on skin. I'm in my early 30s and I let my mom borrow it. She's nearly 60 and fell in LOVE with this product and took it from me and is using it now. I went and bought a new tube from a local Dermalogica dealer because I couldn't go a day without it. I highly recommend this. You will love this product. Oily skin, aging skin, it doesn't matter. It glides on smooth and helps your skin look luminous and fresh, protects it from the sun and prolongs makeup wear. Win win!!! Works especially well with the Active Moist moisturizer before applying." - ulta user

The Liquid Silk Canvas Featherweight Protective Primer by Tatcha

"The original formula didn't quite work for me, so I had super high hopes on this liquid version and I had to snatch one as soon as it became available at my local Sephora. I have super dry skin (& maturing) so usually any mattifying products can be problematic. I stopped wearing foundation all over my face. If I do, it'd be partial or lightly concealing certain areas then translucent powder. So I needed something to somehow fill out pores and hiding imperfection of my skin surface. This is perfect product for that! This liquid formula glides on my skin literally silky and it's so smooth. It gives me nice satin finish and for dry skin person like me, I almost won't need setting powder after this. Or I can only lightly powder on my T-zone so it keeps powder usage to minimum. I use to love Josie Maran Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm, which I think is very similar except Josie's formula is balm and heavier. I found Tacha's last longer and feels more polished. Formula-wise, it feels almost identical to TOUCH IN SOL No Poreblem Primer. It's way more affordable and works so I liked it too, but I couldn't live with the strong smell. Tatcha, on the other hand, the smell is so gentle and soothing I found. Anyways, my point is, If you have dry skin you're gonna love this. All of Tatcha's products have skin loving ingredients as well, which is a big plus. This is the only product I can wear to look nicer worry-free. Thank you for creating this, Tatcha!!" - sephora user

Primer-Skin Calming SPF 20 by colorescience

"The formula is thick but it spreads easily and I only need one pump for my entire face. I have a ton of redness and scarring from acne and this helps with the redness, helps my makeup go one smoothly and makes my foundation last super long. I also have huge pores on my nose and it has done a great job of making those invisible. My chin is super sensitive and everything makes me break out in with cystic pimples and I was really worried I was going to break it when I put this on because it's so thick and because it does have a fragrance to it but I've been wearing it everyday for over 2 weeks now and nothing! I am definitely repurchasing! " - ulta.com user

Bronzing Perfector Face Primer by colorescience

"The Calm Primer has a light natural tint to it. I have tried many tinted SPF's but all are too dark for me or leave me looking orange. This one is perfect for pale/fair/medium skin, adding a little color. It will work on darker skin tones but won't give any extra color. It helps even out my skin tone and from all the hyperpigmentation I have from post acne. This one I think will be great for sensitive skin.I have used this one after my chemical peels and it is calming, hydrating, and neutralizes redness. Because it evens out my skin tone perfectly, I am more comfortable going out to work and errands without any makeup on top, even when my skin is peeling.The primer has an SPF 20 and I always use a separate SPF before. The consistency is a thick whipped texture. I have found that trying to blend it in on dry skin does not work, it just pills and pulls at your skin. I either put it on about a minute after my SPF, while my skin is still slightly moist or I'll spray my face and then put it on. One pump is enough for the whole face, again, on moist skin, it blends easily and smoothly.The primer creates a smooth and long-lasting base under makeup. I let it set for at least 2 minutes before putting on any foundation. My skin looks hydrated and smooth and every foundation from liquid matte, semi-matte, and powdered goes on beautifully on top. It has not caused any congestion or breakouts and the ingredients are A+ as well. « less" - colorescience.com user

Set The Stage Hydrating Priming Serum by Lawless

"Lawless Beauty "Set The Stage Hydrating Priming Serum" is a nice multi-tasking beauty product acting as a serum, moisturizer and primer in one. I was skeptical such claims were too grand, but this product did hydrate, moisturize and prep my skin for long-wearing makeup. It's a gel that glides on and sets fairly quick. It left my skin feeling smooth, matte and protected throughout the day. Although it is silicone-free, it has that silicone slip and feel. I used it three different ways and liked them all. First, I tried it alone since I rarely wear foundation, and it left my skin feeling smooth and protected. The next day I applied face powder immediately after the primer, and again my face felt smooth and matte all day. I really like how my skin looks and feels with just the primer and powder. My powder lasted longer than usual since I applied it while the primer was still drying and setting. Lastly, I used the primer with a light coverage foundation and powder, and my makeup lasted all day, well into the night, and again my skin was smooth and matte. I've also tried the primer with moisturizer, but felt that my balanced skin had too much product on it, so I don't need a moisturizer when wearing this primer. It truly is a three-in-one timesaver and lived up to its claims. The handy pump dispenser tube is easy to use, dispensing the right amount for my needs in one pump. I experienced no pilling, and this primer worked well with everything else I paired it with. I like it a lot, and I'll finish it to the end, but I will not repurchase at the current full price. I have cheaper alternatives I like better, but this product does what it claims. I received this product complimentary from Lawless Beauty for reviewing and testing purposes; all opinions are truthfully my own." - sephora user

The Mattifier Shine Control Perfecting Primer by Estée Lauder

An oil-free mattifying primer to create a silky smooth canvas for makeup or refresh throughout the day.

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

Beauty Shot Face Blur SPF 33 by Etude House

"I loved it since the very first time I tried it, and it matched the high expectations I had for it. It provides an airbushed, blur-like effect to your skin (hence the name I guess) and it hid my discoloration and slightly enlarged pores. I would not recommend it for people with deeper skintones, however, since I am afraid that it will have a white cast effect. I also would not recommend it to people who don't want their skin to look fairer, since it does make your skin look a bit lighter, which is something that it claims to do. I don't think it makes your foundation last longer, it only makes it look better and it might be bad for people with oily skin because it provides a slightly dewy, healty look. For me though, it was just what I wanted! Very good amount of product in the bottle, normally typical of a foundation. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - yesstyle.com user

The Perfecting Treatment by La Mer

"I usually do not write reviews. I had been reading a lot about the excellent features of face products with gels, silicones, etc. and when I read about The NEW Perfecting Treatment I bought it immediately. A little goes a long way and if it doesn't evaporate, 1 jar will last probably 9 months with daily usage. Feels like water sitting on my skin but THEN sinks in and skin looks smooth, redness diminished, fine lines no more (crow, laugh) elasticity, firmness.....enhances ALL. I am 45, normal to dry skin and battle redness. Scent is faint and very nice. Scent goes away quickly. I wore it overnight and woke up with an even, smooth complexion. That morning out of the blue, my 17 yr old son told me that I looked like I was 14 yrs old that Sunday morning (while I made breakfast)! I had to write this review on that unexpected statement :) Try this stuff - you won't be disappointed. A little goes a LONG way so use a thin layer! Less" - lamer.eu user

HydraBlur Primer by Dermalogica

"Dermalogica products never cease to amaze me. I use many dermalogica products, but didn't love the ultracalming and agesmart primers enough that I would pay more for them than hangoverRX or Spackle primer. They felt great, just not exactly what I was looking for. This new hydrablur primer is worth the extra money for me. It applies super smooth, without being too slippery/greasy like some silicone based primers can be. The microencapsulated tint doesn't add any color or make my ultra fair skin look orange. The tint seems to just balance out your skin tone for flawless looking skin. My foundation stayed put like with most primers, but areas on my face that usually get tight throughout the day have stayed feeling hydrated and smooth. I wear a full face of makeup for work, but the last few days I've been skipping foundation and just using this primer! Amazing!! I think men could wear it too for a little skin pick-me-up. Also, I primarily use the ultracalming line of products and my skin is highly reactive. I haven't had any irritation with this product. Always a plus!! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="6713152058533510369-full" data-show="6713152058533510369-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - ulta.com user

Colored Clay CC Primer by Tarte

"I have dry, sensitive acne-prone skin. I've been using this product for over a week and I haven't experienced any clogged pores or increased breakouts. I bought this in the shade "Light." I use Tarte's BB SPF cream in "Light/Agent 06." My skin tone is somewhere in between neutral and cool. This primer is a very close match for my skin, but it is a bit on the yellow/golden/warm side. So if you're a true cool skin tone, this probably won't work for you.As to coverage, it's hard to describe the effect of this primer. My cheeks are speckled with post-acne marks and I have the beginnings of sun damage on my forehead. This primer doesn't "cover" like a traditional foundation. It reduces the color contrast between the darker imperfections and my normal skin, making them much less apparent. It's like my skin, but much prettier, brighter and smoother... kinda like a lightly photo-shopped version of my face.The finish isn't quite matte. I would say it's more like a matte-satin. It blends easily with a foundation brush, almost like it melts into your skin and doesn't catch on flakey patches. It's really quite lovely. I've been wearing this by itself with concealer and a translucent setting powder. I do need to powder my nose and forehead midday, but other than that, this primer lasts the full day. I'm always pleasantly surprised when I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror and there's prettier version of my skin staring back at me.If you like a natural your-skin-but-better look, you need to try this primer. « less" - Sephora user

Refining Makeup Primer by Shiseido

"Awesome and Amazing! I'm a 54 year old woman with very challenging complexion due to acne scars, rosacea, broken capillaries, large pores and oily T-Zone....and fine wrinkles...UGH! This primer does more than just prep your skin for foundation. It evens out my ruddy completion and diminishes the look of my rosacea. I have very large pores and pitted skin. It minimizes this and in some cases smoothes them out completely. It even helps smooth and fill smile lines near my eyes! It smoothes the surface of my skin so well! Even the slight tint of this product leaves my complexion glowing! I don't even need much foundation after this primer. And when I apply my Dual Balancing Foundation, I only need just a touch because the primer has already made my skin look 100 % improved, younger looking and HEALTHY! It keeps the foundation looking and lasting well over 8 hours.....no need for touch-ups! PLUS has a 20 SPF! I am so grateful to my Shiseido Rep, Kathryn, at Mall of America. She popped a sample in my bag, suggested I give it a try. I only use Shiseido for all aspects of my skincare regimen and only Shiseido for Make-up. This Primer is by far my most valuable product from Shiseido! I've tried skin primers from Smash Box, Lorac, Benefit and they felt strange on my skin, plus did nothing to make my foundation last through the day. Shiseido Refining Primer makes me Look Good! Best of all, it makes me Feel Good and Confident!

Mindful 5 Nourishing Primer Serum by Smashbox

"I got this in my Voxbox and was so excited for this product because after looking into what this products contains I was really excited to see how it does on my sensitive and sometimes dry skin. It succeeded my expectations honestly. My skin loved it and soaked it up. I felt a nice glow and my skin get very moisturized. I think it works well as a hydrating primer best but remember to let it dry a bit before applying unless you want sliding makeup. The formula was great with lovely ingredients you can trust, the texture was smooth and not too heavy , and packaging was very pleasing! Worth a shot for anybody with any type of skin I believe." - sephora user

Correcting Cream Veil  by Cle de Peau Beaute

"I got a sample of this and was very impressed. I am ordering it now even though I think it is too expensive for primer. It doesn't feel greasy or slippery, not like silicone primers. I was surprised it says it moisturizes because it doesn't feel like it would. It has a kind of tacky feel at first. I have huge pores and it made them less noticeable. And I have dry skin but can sometimes get a little shiny after applying all my skincare and spf. This kept my makeup on well. Wasn't too dry or too oily. Different than most primers.

Day 1 of using it, my skin started to settle, little bumps less red and inflamed! I couldn’t believe it! After 3 uses, my skin is clearer and softer. Makeup lasts all day too! I use bareminerals complexion rescue tinted gel cream (amazing stuff) and bareminerals bareskin serum concealer and my makeup looks so natural and my skin feels so light and hydrated without the oiliness.

Ultra Sun Protection SPF 45 Anti-Glycation Primer by chantecaille

"I was really unsure whether to order this product as it is very expensive for a primer. For years, I used MAC's Prep and Prime SPF 50 (I don't bother with anything less than SPF 50) and I used to say it was my desert island product, I loved it so much. I loved it for two reasons - it had the desired SPF and it had an extremely good mattifying effect which I loved as I have oily skin. That was until they changed the formula and my last bottle I purchased left me with a face looking like a frying pan! Thanks for the heads up, MAC...Great SPF, if you have extremely dry skin! So, reluctantly I ordered this Ultra Sun Protection primer. And I absolutely love it! More than I ever loved my MAC one :) it leaves my skin looking smooth, refined and generally a lot more beautiful! My husband told me to stop looking at myself - but I can't stop, I am so pleased with it. My oily skin is under control all day and my make up and blusher stay in place. Due to the tiny amount needed when applying and it's watery consistency, it is bound to last me a long time. An investment - yes, but worth every penny! I guess, it's my new desert island product :) <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-8239910397571324219-full" data-show="-8239910397571324219-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - SPACE.NK user

The Brilliance Brightening Mask by La Mer

"I was on the edge of buying this.. but after coming back from Miami and turned into a charcoal, I purchased this in the hopes of restoring my skin color. It does work and makes the difference! I do use a whole bunch of other brightening products (koress rose brightening mask, Koress brightening oil, Sk2 brightening serum, Philosophy vc booster powder, Erno laszlo brightening cream). But I can tell that this mask actually does stand out from all the other products I use- makes my skin really smooth and soft (I dont have any skin concerns), brightens my skintone from in to out, adds a natural glow to my skin. I use this twice a week There is a great deal of amount of product in the jar.. So I think its' gonna take a while till it runs out. Great purchase! I think it's worth the 250 price tag (coz it's la mer)." - sephora user

Oil Balancing Primer Powder by Alima Pure

"I am completely obsessed with alima pure! I always had a difficult time trying to find a foundation shade that matched me perfectly, and finding a foundation that was toxic free! Golden 2 is my absolutely perfect match, and golden 1 will match me perfectly during winter and spring. It had a beautiful satin finish, not too matte not to glowy. The coverage is a good solid medium coverage that is buildable. It's long lasting, looks even more beautiful the longer you wear it. I ordered 3 sample sizes (golden 1,2,3) and the primer powder. The sample sizes have a decent amount of product, it lasted me about 5 uses. I am going to purchase a full size of golden 2 right now! Trust me get the mineral foundation, I have extremely sensitive, acne prone, combination skin with dry patches, black heads, hyper pigmentation, uneven skin tone and the mineral foundation covers beautifully and wears beautifully throughout the day. * « less" - alimapure.com user

Matte Creme Matifiante by MAC

"This stuff is GREAT! I am so glad that the MAC representative suggested that I purchase this for minimizing my pores and to help control shine. I see some reviews use it BEFORE they apply their foundation. I tried this, and honestly it made me look kinda oily. It could be that it was being used at the wrong time because I really could not see any difference. Then I was told to apply it AFTER my foundation and setting power and IT WORKED! Matte gave my skin a smooth, flawless finish. I used it on my cheeks, nose, forehead, and underneath my eyes. It helped with the sublte lines under my eyes and it definitely made my pores look a lot smaller if not non existent! This is a MUST buy if you are wanting to set your look, control shine and minimize pores!! BUY IT! " - M·A·C user

Brightening Perfector Face Primer by colorescience

"I have been using this produce for five years. Recommended by my dermatologist/plastic surgeon after I had a skin cancer removed from my face. If you have skin like me: light skin color, tends to dry in the winter, freckles, 56 years old skin, you must try this product! On days that I hang out at home, I use only the bronzer and a bit of blush. On my full face of make-up days, I start with this, use a light amount of bare minerals power, blush, and lots of eye make-up. When you have pale skin it is difficult to get a light, natural look. Easily blends at neck and blonde hairline around the face. This product is very light, spreads really evenly, and gives my skin a matt, uniformed color with a photo finish look. You have to experiment with how much to use. If you use too much it will look a peachy-orange yucky color. I recommend that you apply it in very small amounts immediately after applying moisturizer. Feels like an expensive primer! And actually good for your skin. « less" - Beauty.com user

Top Secrets CC Cream Color Correcting Primer by YSL Beauty

"Seriously, this is the REAL deal -- color correcting! I have very good experiences with a YSL primer in the past, but I wasn't even expected this CC primer to be THAT impressive. I am Asian with light skin tone, so got the Lavender shade to contradict my yellowish and tired/uneven complexion. I put it on with my fingers and it does have textures that are easy to spread, but not too runny (think a bit like clay but spreads like very lightweight peanut butter), thus it gives my skin a matte finish. A little goes a long way. Once I put it on, my complexion totally brightened up; my skin tone evened; and the large pores on my nose and cheeks diminished. Immediately I looked at least 5 years younger!!! It also conceals some of my redness over my face. I do apply a bit of their green neutralizer to further reduce the redness. But I felt like I could wear this alone without BB/foundation.I have been using this for a few days so far. On none of them I ever felt dryness occurred. It's pretty long lasting as well since my face still looked bright and even after 10 hours, and I didn't have excess amount of oil on my t-zone, which is another nice surprise. Anyway, I know I sounded like a sales person but it's really that great. I am addicted to this now. Best cosmetic product I've used; worth every penny!! « less" - Sephora user

THE LEVELER Pore Minimizing Primer by beautyblender

"I have huge pores and am always on the lookout for a good primer to help cover up those problem areas mainly on the nose, inner cheeks, and chin. There arent many primers out there that really help the situation without severely drying out my skin. Whenever I apply my foundation its only a matter of time before my makeup starts to look super cakey ughh. But not this one! This pore primer actually works! I pat this primer to my T-zone and then apply beauty blender opal essence primer to the rest of my face. After about 1 minute I apply my foundation with a beauty blender and voila! perfect flawless make-up that actually lasts all day long! I'm a nurse and work 10 hour days and my make-up stays put with minimal touch ups! I really cant say enough good things about these primers, but dont take my work for it, try it! Beauty blender is coming up! Hands down recommend to anyone who wants flawless skin all day long! My sample is about to run out and I'm definitely going to sephora to buy full sized one very soon!

I'm a cyclist and am in the sun or wind or fog for atleast 2 to 4 hours each day I ride, and the product lasts and protects against the elements. I also love how my skin looks at work, never needing a touch up for the 8 hr work day, except maybe an occasional touch of powder if I have areas that glisten. But the base coverage, which feels light and natural, remains. I highly recommend this product!" - colorescience.com user

Starter Kit by Jane Iredale

"I wanted to try the Jane Iredale line after a makeup artist used it on me as part of a bridal party for a friends wedding. The starter kit comes in the perfect travel size and was a great introduction to some key products! I really wanted to test out the tinted moisturizer ( which unfortunately doesn't come in the kit) so I asked the personal shoppers for a sample and they were kind enough to send me two samples in both medium and medium light. I'm glad that they did, because I determined that medium light suites my skin best in winter and I will save medium shades for summertime. I can't tell you how much time and money I've wasted over the years trying to find a brand of makeup that doesn't flake upon application and one that truly lasts and looks great all day on my dry, sensitive skin and I'm SO excited I've finally found my answer in this brand!! Less" - janeiredale.com user

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

It's absolutely perfect for dry skin, it's so nourishing and honestly makes my makeup last all day and look flawless! Doesn't make the skin oily at all, it absorbs within a minute or so of putting it on, which makes foundation application easy and no cracks or cakey looking makeup. The best thing is you only need a few drops, so the bottle is going to last you a long time! So so glad one of the girls at Mecca recommended this to me! " - mecca.com.au user

Organic Pure Primer by inika

"A spectacular primer and moisturizer combo, with a lot of water based nutrients. My skin LOVES it. Plus a little goes a LONG way. The hyaluronic acid distributes hydration as the skin needs it, it smooths but its also very light! It's excellent for oily skin as the nutrients is water based and its silicone free so it wont fill the pores with more goo to dispose of. If you're finding you still get shine apply the Inika organic mattifying powder before your BB cream or Loose mineral powder, to absorb extra shine before it gets through your coverage layer. " - nourishedlife.com.au user
