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!!!
Best For combination/oily skin... keeping makeup fresh!
I have tried other primers with no luck. My skin is combiantion, at the end of the day it feels like I'm one big hot mess without this!! My mother used only Estēe Lauder products, I never have. I stole this (haha) sample size from my sister. I put it on in my oily areas and I was amazed!!! It was soft and matte! It went from cream to a powder after it dried. I have tried too faced primed and poreless pure and it felt like vasoline! I am not sure what all the hype is about benefits POREfessional primer is?! I didnt like it at all! I dislike silicone based primers (I don't think this is, but I could be wrong). Everyone is different and everyone's skin is different, but if your looking for a mattefying primer, in my opinion this is the best out there a 10\10 in my book! Another one that's a 7/10 in my opinion is bare minerals primer for oily skin. The only drawback is the price, it's worth it, but you just hate to part with $40 ish+ after taxes! I will defiantly rebuy! Now I know why my mother only used Estēe Lauder products, even my boss tried some of mine and LOVED it!!
Its pretty simple. You put this on and you can never go without it again. After application, your face will instantly feel protected. Your foundation will adhere to this primer, creating an absolutely flawless finish. And to top it off your make up will last much longer. An absolute must have!
I have tried many brands' primer and I finally stop trying. I found the one fits my skin very well. I have combination skin and I can't take greasy cosmetics in summer time at all. This primer is not greasy at all and does its work very well. I would recommend it to friends who have combination skin type.
After trying the Matte Perfecting Primer sample, I just had to order it! It doesn't take much to cover my entire face. And it never felt so smooth. My makeup just glided on over it like my face was baby smooth again! I had no shine even after being in 90 degree heat outdoors. I highly recommend this product!
This is the only primer that I've ever been able to wear that doesn't break me out. I've been using it for over a year, so I recently decided to try something else and immediately regretted that decision because I broke out everywhere. From now on I'm sticking with EL Matte Perfecting Primer!
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!
