Best For even foundation look, oil control, shine control, going out, keeping foundation on
I received a sample of this and tried it out. I liked it very much, so I bought it. This really helps my foundation to go on smoothly and evenly. It makes my make-up look more natural. It also helps my foundation to stay where I put it and not disappear. The oil and shine control also is good in this product. It does not break me out and most of the primers I have tried caused break-outs. This is a keeper.
I purchased this primer based on reviews I read after google search for primers for mature women. I do not normally purchase high end products, but EL has a great return policy, so I had nothing to lose. I love this primer. I am hooked on this primer. This primer does everything it claims. I love the shine free matte finish and even though I am 55 yrs old, I would feel comfortable wearing this w/o foundation (to some places lol). My only complaint is the price, I think it is way too high for primer. But I would purchase this again, because I love how it feels and how it looks and I also love how long my foundation last when I use it. So this matte primer is a thumbs up for me.
I had never used a primer before, but received a sample of this and liked it. I think it helps to apply the foundation more evenly and it seems to look more natural. I feel it is a bit overpriced for the amount you get, so I think I will try a couple of other brands to compare quality for price.
It does its job for me. My oily zones (nose and forehead) do look matte after applying this primer. The only thing preventing me from giving it 5 stars is that I can still detect some shine on my forehead by the end of the day. Other than that I'm quite happy with my purchase.
This is the best primer I have ever used for my normal-oily skin. I loved that it was offered in two different formulas. The matte formula is perfect! It goes on smooth, and little goes a very long way. It does such a good job of hiding imperfections that I can even leave off my foundation. Just a little under-eye concealer, powder, and I'm good to go! I still use my foundation for special occasions, but this is perfect for every day use. The primer also does great under my foundation as well. This primer will be a part of my daily routine forever!
The Matte Perfection Primer by Estee Lauder has been beneficial in reducing the red skin tones of my nose and cheeks. I am a natural red head and have extremely fair skin. Being almost to the wonderful age of 60 I find that the red color in my hair is now prominate on my nose and cheeks! The primer evens my skin tone so that the redness iis not noticeable.
I recd a small sample and decided to try it for the night out. I was totally surprised that my face did not shine that much. I do have oily skin with large pores. So I decided to use it for the next few days and Im surprised how it kept my nose fr shiny that much. After 4 hours, just had to powder my nose to continue my day. I tried other primers but this one got my attention and my face is smoother after applying a small amount. So I purchased the matte primer and now I use it everyday with powder foundation. Thanks!
I have never used a primer before, but needed a boost with my foundation. This is perfect, it's very light and smooth. It makes your face look flawless. Definitely worth the extra step when applying your makeup. Love it.
Not only does this primer make my complexion look wonderful, but I have noticed that my skin feels softer, too! I've always avoided primers, thinking them an unnecessary step, but now I can't imagine not using this fine product.
I tend to have oily skin on the forehead, nose & chin areas that can break through the makeup by mid-morning. This primer helps to reduce the oiliness and keeps the makeup intact most of the day. A huge improvement, well worth it!
