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

Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfector by Clinique

"I've been meaning to write a review of this for so long! I have been using this product for YEARS and it one of my daily staples. I have large pores and some little pock scars from acne, and this stuff is basically like a miracle. I put it on my nose and cheeks and it smooths out my skin and fills in all the little holes. I put it on after moisturizer and before any make-up. A little goes a long way too, and a tube usually lasts a month or two. I recently tried the "Pores No More" to compare, and was really unhappy with it (too liquidy, not enough coverage). I like that it glides on really smooth, and keeps my skin matte throughout the day. I will say that I have put it on without any moisturizer, and it got a little cakey, so moisturize before applying it. Other than that, this is probably my number one favorite beauty product." - sephora user

Hydra Veil Primer by Illamasqua

"I purchase quite a lot of new items from beauty bay and I kept on seeing this item, but I ignored it as this primer was about to take some serious coin off me!!!! BUT I have acne prone, open pores and dry/combination skin and this primer smoother all my acne scarring and made my makeup sit on my face like no other primer has!!!!! My face looked fresh and natural. BUT kept the coverage of my Estée Lauder double wear foundation (which is my go to foundation). I used quite a lot of different base products to test this out and it continued to hide my pores and make my skin feel soft and smooth!!! Also, with other primers such as the laura geller under makeup primer and the benefit porefessional. This continues to keep your makeup on for your every working day (8-10 hours) I've never been so impressed with a product and I've continued to tell everyone about this!!! I also have done my sisters makeup and her base is acne prone and oily skin and it worked on her face flawlessly!!!! If you want a long wearing FLAWLESS base where products to sit beautifully on top of it, then this primer is for you. It is expensive, but I buy a lot of makeup and it still is pricey for me. BUT it is so worth it and I have used it for 2 months now and there is still some of it left! So £17 a month on a primer is cheaper then the other primers I mentioned previously!! PLEASE BUY THIS!!!❤️" - beautybay user

Changemaker Skin-Optimizing Primer by BITE Beauty

"Listen - I am an OILY queen. It takes a truly solid primer to hold the foundation on my face. I'm always nervous that I'll look in the mirror and see nothing left, but thanks to the Bite Beauty Changemaker Skin-Optimizing Primer, that fear is no more!This primer glides smoothly over your skin using your fingers or a slightly damp beauty blender. I thought it added a beautiful mattifying base for my foundation without being too drying. Some primers have a tendency to sink into my pores and break me out, but this is weightless and light. I didn't "feel" like I had a primer on my face. I would highly recommend for anyone who has oily skin and struggles to keep foundation on!I used this in conjunction with the Bite Beauty Changemaker Supercharged Micellar Foundation and the Changemaker Pressed Powder. This 3-step foundation routine will keep your makeup locked in and ready to last all day! Less" - Sephora 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

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

Pro Filt'r Hydrating Primer by Fenty Beauty

"This primer is amazing! My skin is really dry in some spots, and oily in others. Even with moisturizing, using other primers, and using the Fenty hydrating foundation, my skin with foundation always looked patchy, dry, and almost look scaly on my dry skin. This primer changed the game for me- it has a silken touch and grips your foundation without feeling sticky. When applying, I usually use about three pumps, let it dry for 30 seconds, and apply my makeup as usual. I have never looked so airbrushed. My skin, (dry, but completely clear) used to look meh in foundation, but this product is a miracle in a bottle. Seriously. If you have dry skin, or combination skin (this even combated oily areas and evened out my face) GET THIS PRIMER!! It not only makes your skin so silky and hydrated, but it cut down on the amount of foundation I use. This is the secret to a perfect face of makeup. 10/10 Less" - Sephora user

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

Perfect Canvas Primer Serum by ren

"If you care about what goes on your face, and want the safest (those ingredients!), most effective product for priming, This is it! When trying new products, my two greatest concerns are: breaking out and a heavy, greasy feeling (you know that feeling that occurs a few hours after makeup application). NO BREAKOUTS/NO HEAVY, GREASY FEEL with perfect canvas! This serum is really a perfect canvas. My skin looked so good that I didn’t even want to put makeup on!Pores— minimized immediatelyTexture of my skin — like velvet, soft!Makeup application- flawless (tried with both powder and liquid foundation)Staying Power- my makeup lasted throughout my shift of 12 hours ( my makeup always lasts for whatever reason, so the real change is that it wasn’t as oily, and it did not feel heavy at the end of the day or at any point)I live in humid South Florida and hustle at work, so a lightweight primer is super important! Perfect canvas is the MOST lightweight primer I’ve EVER tried (and I’ve tried all the mattifying primers available and some silicone free ones), yet they all still feel heavy! And if I touch my face I end up with a slick of oil/grease. I did not get that feeling with this primer!Application- PERFECT CANVAS after my serum and moisturizer... I warm a few drops of serum with my fingers then DAB into my skin to really get it to soak in, I don’t rub it in. Super oily skin? Try the serum w/o moisturizer!Anyhow, this is by far the most effective silicone free primer I have tried! I can’t wait to try more from REN’s “CLEAN SKINCARE” line!For reference I have combo/oily skin that’s unpredictable, sensitive, and acne prone. I also use topical acne medication (Retin A Micro) and I’ve had nothing but GOOD MAKEUP & SKIN DAYS with this primer. I am testing REN Perfect Canvas as part of a contest. My review is 100% genuine! « less" - Sephora user

Pro Filt’r Mattifying Primer by Fenty Beauty

"I try out all Fenty Beauty products but I was hesitant on purchasing this product because I had a horrible experience using the first FB face primer...I have sensitive, combination skin and it caused me to breakout which is a no-no. However this product is the truth...not only is it super light-weight and made my skin super matte without feeling tight it made my makeup look super flawless. It made my large pores seem to disappear and after wearing my makeup for 8 hours during a 98 degree day, I looked in the mirror to see everything still in tact and I had a beautiful glow that didn't resemble a greasy slice of pizza. It literally made my FB soft-matte foundation feel like I had no foundation on at all...usually if I touch my face throughout day while wearing foundation a little product will be on my fingers, not with this primer. I have found my holy grail primer and I would suggest it to anyone with oily or combination skin!!!" - sephora user

Radiance Veil Primer by Illamasqua

"I'd longed after this product for a while but with a high price tag I was a little put off to start but when being given a voucher jumped at the chance! I read a lot of reviews saying the packaging would benefit from being a squeezy tube although I have to whole heartedly disagree, there'll be no product wastage in the way it's packaged now and when using a tube I always manage to squeeze out too much. I've got super oily skin and struggle to keep it at bay but I have to say this product is amazing it glides on to your skin like silk and really helps disguise those pores. Typically I'll wear my make up for 12+ hours and as a hairdresser can find my make up sliding throughout the day but this has kept it in place very well. You really need to use the smallest amount or it can tend to dry the skin (not a problem i've had before!) A little spreads a long way! I would recommend this product for those with oily skin but stay away if not. X « less" - www.illamasqua.com user

My eye shadows look great too ! I'll even dab abit onto the inner corners of my eyes, for added moisture after my makeup is complete. I even apply this balm as a night moisturizer. My skin really loves this stuff ! " - M·A·C user

Feel The Moment Anti-Aging Ultra Hydrating Sensory Awakening Primer Serum by IT Cosmetics

"Let me start off by saying I am always reading through the reviews but never actually writing any of them. I noticed when going through the reviews a lot of women said they were dry and didn't notice any that said they were oily which triggered me to write this. I have to watch what I put on my very sensitive skin. My t zone gets pretty oily but my cheeks are normal so I always have a problem finding products that stay on and last all day as well as not bother my sensitive skin and break me out. This is by far my HG primer and well worth the price. I use this in the morning routine, after moisturizer and before foundation. Like many others said it feels greasy at first but as you wait to put on your foundation it makes your skin so soft and smooth. I have never tried anything comparable to this product that keeps my face balanced and my makeup lasting all day. Hands down the best primer over tried and never looking back! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - ulta.com user

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

Ultra HD Skin Booster by Make Up For Ever

"Dry skin? Normal skin? Oily skin? Doesn't matter what skin type you are this product is amazing for anyone! It's a non greasy fast absorbing serum that leaves the skin so soft, plump, and smooth! It's actually overs the skin 400% hydration which means you don't necessarily need to use it everyday. As it is a serum put this on before your moisturizer, as it will penetrate deeper into the skin. It also acts at a PRIMER for foundation. The silky finish of this product allows for a perfect application of your foundation. I have more oily skin but this does not leave my skin greasy, it does not clog my pores, and it helps give me a glowing with appearance!" - sephora 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

Shine Stopper Instant Matte Finish Oil Control Primer by Paula's Choice

"I'll be honest, I've heard of Paula's choice about a year or two ago, but it seemed kind of expensive and just never really bit the bullet as I wasn't super familiar with the brand. But I read a review recently that mentioned the low priced samples so I rushed to try it out. I'm EXTREMELY oily, big pores, the whole 9. And most oil control products don't do much so I wasn't expecting much but WOW. I used this in place of a primer, after skincare before makeup. It smoothed things out, I only needed the smallest amount, was lightweight and not sticky or gross feeling at all. But the oil control was phenomenal. I wore a drugstore foundation that's not targeted towards oily skin and the next day I wore a BB cream that never holds up on my skin, so I could really test how this works. The first day with the foundation, it lasted ALL DAY. I kept touching my face (which I know you shouldn't do when you have oily skin) just to see if my nose was oily yet, not even a little bit! My whole face looked as flawless as it did in the morning. The next day with the bb cream that barely lasts an hour, I started to get only slightly dewy towards the end of the day, say 4-5 hours later, but my makeup still looked great and the shine wasn't breaking through. This is a miracle product Forreal. And it might look pricy, but sense you only need a little bit I think it's fair.

L’Or 24K Gold Radiance Primer by Guerlain

"I wanted to hate this. I've never been a primer kind of girl. Let alone a $74 primer kind of girl. But alas I tried this considering at 32 my skin just wasn't as lifted as it was in my 20's and my make up just wasn't applying and lasting like I wanted it too. So I got the chance to visit a big Sephora that carried it, my eyes glazed over, and before I knew it my debit card was out and I was bringing home the fanciest primer I've ever owned. I'm in love. My make up looks like it was just applied all.day.long! It really does make my pores look non existent and my skin a little more youthful. I'm a little annoyed that I fell in love for such a pricey product but a little goes a long way and it should last me a long time. This is a splurge. Are there other primers that work wonders at keeping make up on longer, sure! But if you're in the market for a primer that helps make up longevity and provides some skin appearance improvement this is a good one. It's not a long term skin improvement product as far as I can tell. But I love what it does provide while wearing it. It hasn't broken my sensitive skin out or caused any issues. It doesn't feel heavy after it dries down and has foundation over it. It doesn't make your make up feel cakey either. « less" - Sephora user

Makeup Primer by reviva

"I have tried many different primers...premium brands like Channel, Smashbox, as well as countless other drugstore brands. But, I never found one that I really loved, hence my search continued. While I was placing an order to replenish some of my vitamins, I decided to look up what natural options were on Vitacost. Reading such good reviews of this product and the reasonable price, I decided to purchase it, without too high of an expectation....but I love this product!!! I have very dry but also very oily T-Zone and this primer really helped control the oil as well as made my makeup stay put till the end of the day. This will definitely be my go-to primer from now on!!! Another plus is that there are no harsh chemicals like some other makeup products in the market!!" - vitacost.com user

First Base Primer Spray by NYX Professional Makeup

"I really never review products and I'm a total makeup junkie so I know what I'm talking about. my everyday go to foundation is generally the loreal infallible as it provides beautiful natural flawless coverage. I started using it almost a year ago with the smashbox photo finish pore minimizing primer for about 6 months or so. I started to notice that the thick silicone texture interfered with the foundation because it always looked a little cakey, like there was so much more foundation on my face than what I actually put on. So I decided to go for a thinner primer with more of a lotiony consistency and went with the maybelline master prime primer. I did really love that stuff it looked a lot better than the smashbox and made my makeup look so much more natural BUT once I tried this stuff I quickly realized that neither primers were all that great. I was in ulta saw the beautiful new display of one of my fav drugstore brands with a bunch of new goodies like this AWESOME primer. I was always skeptical about primer sprays because how much could a mist really affect the way your makeup looks?? And that answer is way way more than you would expect. Not only do I completely prefer this primer over the 40$ smashbox one and the maybelline one I prefer it over ALL the primers I've EVER tried. My makeup looks incredible my pores have disappeared and it looks like skin in a magazine --no joke. I have this new confidence about my whole makeup routine! Ive even noticed a difference in how my foundation applies. I feel like it's way more smoother and I use a less amount of foundation. I'm so glad I saw this before everyone else got to it at my ulta because I knew it would sell out. I LOVE IT BUY IT. Quick tip for beauty blender users: I recommended to still wet the sponge but not for too long I just run it under water really quickly. Once I moistirize I spray the primer directly on my face and then once onto the beauty blender as well! This way you get a little when you pick up the foundation and an even more flawless application! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - ulta.com user
