Perfect Primer for oily skin
I considered a lot before buying this. This is a wonderful Primer and it goes perfectly with Double Wear Stay-in-Place. They both give me a nice coverage. Love it and they are now in my must-have list.
I have oily skin and have tried several different primers, but this has been the best of all!!! Light weight and feels so good on my skin! No oily feel throughout the day and my makeup stayed on all day! No oiliness at all. I am such a fan of this primer!
It is the best, for being a product to make your makeup look matte, it is not drying, as other products cloud your skin. It does not totally matte to give your skin a dried up look, it has a small dewy finish. Try it and you will agree, your face with also look smooth as silk.
I purchased this primer because I was at my wits end. All of the primers I had purchased in the last year left me feeling like I had wasted my money. They either irritated my face, changed the composition of my foundation, or I simply did not like. Then I purchased this primer after looking at youtube, and I am so glad that I did. It does not have a perfumey smell, has a good texture and does exactly what it is supposed to do. My foundation stays put and goes on smoothly. Please never discontinue this!
This primer is amazing. It makes a 100% difference in the look and feel of my face when all said and done applying my makeup. Some days, when I just want a clean face and I'm not going to do my makeup, I still put this on after my moisturizer for a flawless, maintenance free, look.
I purchased this along with the Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation and I couldn't be happier. I have oily skin and large pores so I am always on a mission to find a primer that doesn't slide around on my face and also helps minimize those pores. I think I have finally found it! This primer is a little thicker creamier formula than others that are more of a gel silicone formula. This might also have silicone in it, but if it does, it doesn't give me that oily greasy feeling that a lot of silicone based formulas do. I have used this with several foundations and it has worked well with all of them, but of course it looks amazing with the Double Wear. I will say that by mid day, I found myself blotting oil from my t-zone, but I have pretty oily skin so it's to be expected. This still performs better than any other matte primer I have ever used.
I have used this product several times with my Double Wear Light to try and fight the mid-day shine. Unfortunately, this product just don't help. It feels really good and helps my makeup slide on effortlessly but it doesn't stand up to its oil controlling claim. I saw no difference in the oiliness of my skin with or without it.
I love this product! Been using it for years, and usually try to buy during the "free gift" events. It's expensive, but thus far haven't been able to find anything remotely comparable. I have very oily skin, and this keeps the oil at bay all day with occasional blots needed. Will continue to use/buy this product!
Matte Perfecting Primer:Good item-just not for me?
While this product DID shrink my pores and make them less noticeable-loved it when I first put it on; it also left a white-ish film that flaked off as the day went on. Most noted was under my "readers". I also broke out a tad bit. Maybe this product just wasn't for me. I know Estee Lauder as an industry innovator/ leader, and it is unusual for me to have a reaction like this from an Estee Lauder product.
I have tried several primers and have found that the Matte Perfecting Primer by Estee Lauder is the best primer there is. Not only does it leave my make up looking flawless, ensure that my make up lasts all day and all night, and fills in the unevenness of my skin so that my make up glides on, but it also leaves my skin feeling like satin. During my last experiment with a primer from another brand, I just couldn't wait for the tube to be gone so that I could order my Matte Perfecting Primer by Estee Lauder. Ladies, search no further, this is the best primer there is, hands down.
This was my first time using a primer (other than eyeshadow primer) and I can officially say that I underestimated it! It creates a balanced layer which helps protect your skin and create a flawless look. I have used Estee Lauder for years and once I started to use the primer, I got more compliments and inquiries about what make up I used. I have found this to be one of my "Must Haves" and I love to give this as a gift. Its a great way to give a friend a boost while introducing them to a spectacular product.
I can not believe that this would make all the difference in how my foundation would look. I am amazed at how it keeps the color blended perfectly. With the all day Ester Lauder foundation, my skin looks flawless and you need very little. It also lasts all day and night. I loved the trial so much I have purchased it twice already. Keep up the good work, your products are fabulous and will keep trying different items since I don't ever seem to be disappointed!!!
