This product is amazing, and worth every cent
This product is amazing, and worth every cent. To put this into context, I live in Southern California and we experience high heat and high humidity.
- Makeup stays put and looks fresh for 12+ hours WITHOUT any touch up
- Makeup adheres better to skin - I ended up using less foundation, bronzer, and highlighter. This primer ENHANCES color payoff in other products
- Primer does not feel thick or uncomfortable on the skin throughout the day
Only issue: this product dries very quickly to a tacky texture. I got the best results when I applied moisturizer before the primer. After the primer dries, liquid foundation should be applied with a very quick hand. Otherwise, the foundation will begin to collect unevenly in blotches. You can apply liquid foundation by hand or brush, but the best method is probably stippling with a brush or beauty blender. Stippling will prevent the foundation from sticking to the primer in blotches

This stuff is a MUST have, especially if you are a middle aged woman going through menopause. I hate putting makeup on in Fall when it is too cool to leave the AC on but too warm to turn the heat on. Without fail I will sweat my makeup off before I even leave the house. I have tried this 2 different ways. One way is to pour it into a spray bottle (I used an empty makeup setting spray bottle) with a fine mist and spray it on after your face primer but before foundation. My favorite way though is to dab it on my forehead and the perimeter of my face with a cotton pad. That way there is no waste. It really works well. I have pretty sensitive skin and this hasn't caused any break outs. I make sure and wash my face thoroughly when taking my makeup off and use a toner and a good moisturizer twice daily. This is so inexpensive and can be a true life saver

Great Product / No Vendor Issues / Fast Delivery
I ordered and promptly received two bottles of this product. Not only did it arrive early, but I absolutely had no issues with the vendor as noted in the previous review.
The product works almost too well! You really need to use it LIGHTLY, a small amount goes a long way. Too much will over-dry the skin and those with darker skin tones will notice a grayish cast if not applied lightly. You can try a light moisturizer first, then apply the product to face.

Sad I bought This...
I bought this because it was recommended to me as a primer for very oily skin. I wish that I had never tried this. I had some of the worst makeup days that I have ever had while using this. Yes, it did keep me matte all day. However, it cause my face to look like I was 100 years old because of how cracked and dry it made my skin look. Every ounce of texture that I had was more pronounced and it made it look like I had wrinkles...I'm only 23. If you have dry skin do not even think about trying to use this.

I'm still trying to figure out how I feel about this product. I saw this item recommended on a skincare forum and it had good reviews so I tried it out. I have oily/dehydrated skin and I just wanted something that would help keep my eye makeup put throughout the day.
On my first use, I put some on a cotton pad all over my face and it IMMEDIATELY dried out my skin. Since that first day, I've been using a moisturizer, then a moisturizing primer, and the wiping Mehron over only my oily areas (t-zone, nose, eyelids) and it's helped me stay matte all day and keeps my eyeshadow looking fresh til the evening.
I'll keep trying and testing this item out. But in the month I've been using it, I give it 3 stars.

I hated this at first because it goes on and dries like you are putting on a mask. But once it is fully dry it is fine. You can feel your skin getting tight. After I saw how great my makeup stayed on, I will be using this on a regular basis. I have super oily skin and this is as great prep product. I have also been using a little dab on my eyelids as a primer and this is now my official favorite eye primer. My eye lids stay dry all day.
Great product once you get past how it feels going on!

Great for special occasions
This stuff is great for making sure your makeup looks great for an entire day. I used this for my wedding and also have used it for especially long days. For my wedding I used this as a base before my dinair airbrush makeup. I think this really prevented any shininess all day, but I really slathered this stuff on. It really does help prevent sweat or any shininess on a regular basis when I only put one coat on, but it is definitively not perfect if you are outside all day or doing something active. Overall it does the job for stressful presentations/events or long days and you can apply more if you are really concerned.
I gave it 4 out of 5 stars given that it can mess with your other makeup if it is not completely dry yet. Multiple times I have put on some sunscreen after this and been a cakey mess. So just make sure to leave 5 mins before and after this to apply anything else to your face. Otherwise you may need to start over.
I have very sensitive skin (acne and some allergies) and have had no issues with this product. This product is pretty harsh tho so I would've use it regularly for that reason.

It works really well to keep makeup on throughout the day but my skin is prone to break-outs and this definitely irritated my skin. I got several large pimples while wearing this and as soon as I stopped and just used sunscreen and my makeup it went away.

Don’t trust from AlumiGogo
Less than a star is what I would rate this buying from AlumiGogo. I am a makeul artist and first discovered this product on Camera Ready Cosmetics.com. Amazing results. I use it in all my summer brides and clients who sweat or have oily skin. I needed more in a punch so I ordered from amazon. Thank God I tried this on myself. I applied like a toner and allowed it to dry. Then applied makeup forever primer. Allowed to dry. Wanted a glowy look so I applied Becca Backligh primer to my cheek bones and both primers peeled off into my hands. My skin turned beet red ans got bumpy. I immediately washed my fave.. this is going in the trash. I could have been sued. Do not buy makeup products from amazon. You don’t know what you are getting. It’s the same price elsewhere you just have to pay shipping.
