Did not do anything to extend the wear of my Meow Cosmetics mineral foundation. I feel there is too much dimethicone in the products; I used less than the recommended amount and my skin looked somewhat shiny. On top of not working well, it definitely caused some acne for me. If you have sensitive, acne-prone skin, or are sensitive to silicones, this product is not for you.

I have tried SO many primers and this has, by far, been the best! I'm used to spending over $50 for a primer. I needed something inexpensive & when I fell upon this I thought I'd grab it to use for a photo shoot, and planned on only using it once. I fell in love & even used it for my wedding under my makeup. It is so smooth & silky, but doesn't leave a oily residue. It lasts all day & doesn't make my makeup looking caked on at the end of the day.
I have recommended this to all my friends who love makeup & are all about primers. I will continue to recommend-- it was a game changer for me!

I have used other make-up primers over the last couple of years. This one is excellent. I have an oily t-zone and this works wonderfully. It does not make it oily and stops any oil from appearing throughout the day. I never have a shiny nose now! It is silky smooth and makeup goes on very well.

love love love
I absolutely love this primer. It has a great consistency and feels wonderful. I have sensitive skin and am an actor on television and the best part about this primer is it doesn't puff up my eyes like 99% of the products on the market. I highly recommend this primer and I have tried them all.

Didn't work for me
I have acne scarred skin that is oily but flakes a lot since moving from Georgia to Southern California. I didn't like this when in Georiga, but thought it might work out better in CA, but unfortunately not. It does nothing to smooth out any imperfections (I think the others that it does work for have very minor ones compared to mine and perhaps that is why it works for them# or help any different foundations that I've tried #even my fave Stilla). I keep thinking I'll return it, but reconsider trying just one more time after my facials - should have just returned it.

Great value for a nice product
I have purchased similar products from department stores, at five times the price. Great value for a nice product that is very effective in filling and smoothing skin prior to make-up. Will buy again.

See the result immediately
Only a tiny drip, then put on the makeup foundation, perfect result and the skin is so soft.

this primer fills my wrinkles & keeps my makeup stay all day

This is a fabulous product! I have tried other top brands of this product with great results but I don't enjoy paying the top-brand prices. The price for this product is by far the best & it feels incredible on the skin. Just smoothes your skin in preparation for foundation, rather liquid, cream or powder, (I vary my use of the different textures), but this product works well with all of them. Have already told others about this and they are SO excited to share with me how much they love this product.

Not for me
Thought this would be worth trying but I do not feel that it worked for me?

Best I've tried
I'm a makeup/product guru. I've tried everything from Mary Kay to expensive drugstore brands and this is by far the best primer.
It's super cheap, lasts all day, and using daily, I go through a bottle MAYBE every three months (a little bit goes a loooong way!).

Great Makeup Primer!
I tried several other very expensive and very popular makeup primers before this one. However, I haven't needed to try any others since. I have dry skin and this primer helps my foundation glide right on and last all day.

I love this product. It makes one's make-up slide on. It is not oily or heavy. It is a great value compared to others.

This primer does its job of priming the face for makeup very well. However, I do find that I have to warm the product between my fingers before applying otherwise it would turn into little balls if put directly on my face as instructed. A plus is that I only need to use 1 drop for the entire face when used this way.

Coming Back for More
I don't wear foundation or powder, so my powder blush would go on blotchy because of my moisturizer. I tried an expensive brand primer, 2x the price for half as much. When I saw this primer, because I trust Swanson, I ordered one, and I love it. It is not too matte, but leaves my skin with a natural look, feeling like silk. I can now put on my moisturizer, and not wait 15 or 20 minutes for it to dry, but I can put this primer on within a minute or two of using the moisturizer, and I am ready to apply my blush, which will now go on smoothly and last for hours.

Best thing since sliced bread....
I love, love, love how this product makes my skin look. It goes on like silk and it evens out the skin under makeup. My skin tends to break out and it is very sensitive so I had my anxieties. Never mind... This product is breathable and does not clog pores. The skin is primed for foundation or powder. I would recommend this primer many times over!

I must say. I am Extremely satisfy with the products. I have so many people compliment how great, how smooth my skin looks. Makeup goes on smooth, stays on longer, and my skin remains nice and moisturize.
Its a bit greasy on the hand though, but gets wash off easy with no problem.
I highly recommended.

Compares well to more expensive brands
I'm chemically sensitive and this product does not irritate my sensitive skin. I was buying a more expensive product that was also an unscented makeup primer with added vitamins and this one seems to work just as well, for 1/3 the price. I use it under my eyes before applying concealer and the concealer glides on better and my under eye area appears smoother when using this product. Overall, I'm happy with it and I will purchase it again.

Feels and Looks Great
Feels amazing, and makes foundation much less noticeable. Incredible value -- less effective primers can cost 3X as much!

It makes my skin much smoother when I use it under my makeup.

This is an awesone primer, prefer it to the expensive brand names I had been using. The finish is not quite as matted as some I have tried, and for my dry skin...perfect, it looks healthy and moisturized. Makeup goes on smooth, foundation never rolls into little balls like with some primers, and stays in place. I even use it under my eyeshadow. Will not be with out this product!

does what it says
Definitely leaves my skin feeling velvety and smooth. ( and I'm 60!) Amazing stuff. Have used this primer for the past couple of years and wouldn't leave home without it!
