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

Perfecting Primer

Another gorgeous Estee Lauder product - after cleansing, toning and moisturising, I apply my Illuminating Perfecting Primer.This primer gives me a natural and subtle glow under my foundation, "blurring" any open pores and locking in moisture, helping me blend my Double Wear Foundation.

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

where has this been my whole life ???! I’m obsessed with this stuff! I’ve tried all kinds of primers recently dr brandt pores no more being my favourite but this one blows that out of the park, i have normal/dry skin but i mostly use primers to make my makeup last all day and help with fine lines and this one does that! Lasts ALL day makes my makeup look fresh and i don’t get those annoying smile lines! BUY IT!!

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.

What are your favorite face primers, setting powders, and setting sprays? I currently use ELF primer (the yellow hydrating one and the one I included in this post) for my face. Lately it seems that no matter how much setting powder I use, everything just slides off my face at the end of the day. Please suggest something for me! #oilyskin #primers #settingpowder
