PUTS YOUR BEST FACE FORWARD!

Estee does primers well. I tried this based on all the great reviews and I agree. You dont need to put a lot on, I recommend putting dots of it on your fingers and patting it into your skin with your ring finger pads. Follow the T-line of the face and also in the lower eyelid just at the upper cheek bone and pat outward from there. Be sure to let it dry just a minute before putting on foundation to avoid feeling sticky. Not only does your foundation stay on all day you'll keep the dewy fresh glow just as long. As long as you dont over apply it feels light and fresh. Especially helpful on the more mature face. Remember a little goes a long way and the full size should last 2 months with daily use. Great product all around.

I would definitely kee buying this product

I have dry cheeks with some old acne scarring and uneven skin due to these scars, therefore, it's super difficult to find a primer that either doesn't clog my pores or doesn't make my foundation look uneven and gross. Then I found this primer, and it seriously diminishes he look of my pores and applies so smoothly and lightweight. One of the few products I've even taken my time to review! Love it!

Amazing!

I was given a sample of this in my local Debenhams store along with a colour match sample of Double wear foundation.This primer is amazing! It worked well with my usual cheaper foundation but once combined with Doublewear-oh my goodness! I feel amazing!It smooths my skin, makes the foundation application so much easier and it stays on all day-despite rain, wind and a very hands on 3 year old who loves to face-touch!I now use this primer and doublewear daily and I’d never change!Highly recommend it!My skin is in much better condition now too, no blocked pores or dry patches

Best primer ever!

I've been using it for a 2 years and I've tried a lot of different primers but this one is really something! It creates a great feeling of my skin as it feels silky and smooth and the foundation is going on top as a cherry on a cake! I have quite problematic skin- acne,rediness,not even skin tone so this primer is really prepared my skin for "going-out-look" . After this primer I think any foundation will go without any problems. Also, this primer is really mattifying my skin and it works until late evening.

worst primer

i was so disappointed with this primer. i love all the other estee lauder products i have bought over the years. i also have the illuminating primer which is lovely, but wanted to try this one - the smoothing primer. i always try new beauty products like this on a day off in case of make up disasters i was right to do this with this product!! did my normal cleanse, moisturise & leave moisturiser 3 or 4 mins to sink in then applied this primer. i gently smoothed over my skin like primers are normally applied (ie not rubbed in) & it bobbled all over my face. it is basically silicone in a tube. i had to get it all off my face with a face wipe & start again with moisturising then using one of my other more reliable primers. i would not even give this away as i am well experienced in how to use skincare/primers/makeup & know it isnt just me!!! at least i got the estee lauder gift with purchase on this order as some compensation for this awful product. « less
