I wanted to love this primer and tried using it in different ways to make it work for me, but sadly this primer didn’t live up to what it was supposed to do for me. The biggest issue for me was that it didn’t stop shine even though it is marketed as doing so. I tried using different moisturisers, I tried using different foundations and even a BB cream but every time I used this primer I was incredibly shiny in a few hours. I even used this primer with a long lasting matte foundation and I was still shiny. I also didn’t notice my foundation lasting longer with this primer, that’s why I give it 3 stars. What I did like about this primer is that it definitely didn’t dry out my skin, or make it break out. It seemed to even out the complexion although it does make it quite pale when you apply too much. I liked the consistency and it doesn’t have a strong fragrance.  I think it would be good on a really dry complexion or someone that wants a more natural finish and doesn’t mind a bit of shine.
This is a stunning product for colour correcting, a primer that self adjusts to correct your skin tone is genius. My face positively glows when using this primer and it visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines and pores. This is easy to use, I don't need a lot, the handy spray is great just spray out, smooth on and my skin has a great canvas for applying makeup. This primer feels really light to wear and I found it also reduces shine on my skin which I love as everyone loves a matte finish, no one likes an oil slick. I adored this product for more evened out youthful looking radiant skin and highly recommend it, another urban decay winner Pros Evens skin tone with an engenius self adjusting corrector system Leaves skin radiant and illuminated Creates a great smooth canvas for makeup Reduces the appearance of pores and fine lines Is easy to use Cons There are cheaper primers on the market, however as you only need a little bit for great results I feel it's worth the initial outlay.
This product is really great for evening out my complexion, especially in making the redness in my skin less visible. My makeup definitely lasts the whole day when I use it. However, it does not minimise pores or fine lines as much as other products E.g. Benefit's The Porefessional
