Good for oily skin
Really nice for oily skin, however I have found it to ball up. Still, it’s great for oily skin
Awesome!I absolutely love this primer as it leaves my face looking smooth and makeup ready while also holding my makeup in place for a long time.
Love it!Great Primer!! Especially with the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation my makeup doesn't budge and looks fresh all day and night.
like itGoes on really smooth and stays on all day. Really happy with this product.
One of the best Primers I have triedverified purchaserI love this primer. It mattifies beautifully and when I use it with the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation my makeup doesn't budge and looks fresh all night
For summersFeels light and smooth on skin. Great base for double wear foundation. Hides shine and great for keeping your make up on in humid weather.
Love it!I've tried others but I keep coming back to this one. This is the fourth time I've purchased this primer. A little goes a long way and it keeps my foundation looking great all day.
Great purchaseReceived this as a sample and had to purchase straight away. Does such a great correcting job and really evens my skin tone so it’s perfect for applying foundation. Subtly illuminates without being too over the top.
Great primerThis primer is my favourite for a matte look. It didn’t dry out my skin or make my foundation look crap. It still gives me a hydrated look but a matte complexion
Great mattifying and staying powerverified purchaserI first tried this as a sample years ago and haven't looked back since. I have combination skin that gets oily after half a day in the dry air of an office and this product stops my makeup from running off my face (in combination with the Double Wear Foundation). It makes my skin look matt and smooth so is great to wear on it's own or as a great base for foundation.
Great Primerverified purchaserCurrently on my second tube, this works very well for my combination skin. Works well as an everyday primer. My skin looks even and makeup stays in place for the day.
Good primerMy makeup sat really well over this , my nose was still a little shiny earlier than I would have liked.
A great everyday primerI've been using this primer for nearly 5 years now and although I often try new products I always come back to this.
This matte primer is not drying on my skin and I get a fresh finish when combined with my Estee Lauder Doublewear Foundation.
I have a very oily T-Zone so after about 7 hours of wear I do have to blot my forehead, however my makeup is still in place after...Read More

In place for a long time
5 starsLove this primer! It’s the best one I have found yet to keep your make up on and looking fresh, even in the humid conditions of the NT
Good for oily skinReally nice for oily skin, however I have found it to ball up. Still, it’s great for oily skin
Great for my combination skinThis primer keeps my makeup looking fresh and even. Spreads easily and my liquid foundation applies beautifully on top
Good PrimerI like this primer but it hasn’t blown my mind. It does the job but I prefer a thicker primer that really blurs out my skin before I put on my foundation. I have dry/combination and sensitive skin so I usually use a Clinique primer that is much thicker and I’m finding that this one just isn’t giving me that same lay down with my foundation. It does wear really well under foundation though, my make...Read More
No longer have issues with my oily t-zoneI use a hydrating/illuminating primer everywhere but my t-zone! This is where this primer comes in. My t-zone doesn’t look shiny when I use this and keeps my makeup in place all day whilst looking so smooth. Doesn’t look drying either which has been an issue I’ve had with previous mattifying primers I’ve tried.
Wow!Where has this been all my life and why did it take me so long to find it?! It goes on like a dream, doesn’t slip and slide and makes your skin perfectly smooth and matte and ready for foundation. I use it with the double wear matte foundation powder and the result is to die for. Beautifully finished face, pores minimised and no shine all day! So good and worth every cent. Thank you Estée Lauder, ...Read More
Will purchase again and againThis is the third time I've purchased this primer. I've tried others but I keep coming back to this one. A little goes a long way and it keeps my foundation looking perfect all day long.
Amazing primerI really like this primer.. my skin feels soft and plump after using it and creates a perfect makeup base
stops my face looking oilyI love this primer especially in summer when I am constantly sweating and don't want my face to look shiny. It definitely stops the shine coming through and helps to shrink the look of my pores underneath my make up.
Controls oilsGreat for summer when I'm greasy/ sweaty. Prevents foundation sliding off my face by the end of the day
Great finishThis is great for that flawless look. I use this with my Estée Lauder foundations and my skin always looks amazing. Even though this is Matt is gives the skin a very nice healthy glow
Perfect PrimerI use this primer with my Estee lauder double wear foundation and it is the perfect base. My make up lasts longer and appears to be smoother as well. I would definitely recommend this primer even for people who do not use Estee Lauder foundation.
Reasonably priced, no artificial scent, helps combat oily skin.I apply this after putting on moisturiser and prior to BB creme or foundation. Works a treat, leaving my naturally oily skin looking matte. Also, I feel it helps set my foundation in place.
Looks great under my makeup!Not bad at all! I sometimes react quite negatively to this brand but have found this to work great with my makeup. Definitely a win! Would recommend.
Works well with oily skinWhen I first started using this, I made the mistake of applying it all over my face. I have now learned that, for me, I should only apply this to my oily T zone as it dried out the less oily parts of my face. Works very well the Estée Lauder double wear foundation. I had noticeably less shine and a more even skin tone.
great for oily skinI really like this primer underneath the double wear foundation. This primer is great for really oily skin and enlarged pores as it covers mine so they aren't noticeable underneath the foundation. It feels quite dry going onto the skin form the start So I wouldn't recommend this for anyone who has dry skin at all. It does act like a glue for the foundation though, mine literally does not move when...Read More
The perfect baseI have combination skin and I have tried using different mattifying primers, however I always come back to this one. I use this as my base to my Estee Lauder double wear. I apply it at least 5 mins before my foundation to make sure it has had time to sink into my skin. Very happy with this product.
MattifyingGood for oily skin to help makeup stay in place all day!
Great everyday productI use this primer everyday with my double wear foundation. It's great for normal/ combination skin and great for sensitive skin. I go back and forth between the EL illuminating primer and this one. This one is great during the day and definitely helps make my makeup last longer in summer. It's very smooth and helps cover blemishes and pores, and has reduced shine around my T-zone.
Great primerI love this primer, it sits so beautifully under the Double Wear foundation. I use it in conjunction with the illuminating primer. I use the mattifier over my t-zone, and the illuminator over the rest of my face. This one keeps the skin from becoming oily, but doesn’t dry you out.
Ok but not as good as Benefit PorefessionalI tried this product as I use the Estée Lauder double wear light foundation, which is fabulous, and as it’s also a bit more economical than the primer I currently use which is Benefit Porefessional. I have oily skin and pores. Both primers are matifying which is great, but the Benefit covers my pores more effectively than the Estée Lauder.
Perfect for an even skin toneI use this product with the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place foundation and they are the perfect match. I have skin that's prone to oil - mostly in my T-Zone, but this really works to matte down the shiny / glossy look that can come through after a few hours. I find if I use this and the Double Wear, I can go an entire day without touching up my makeup. And as someone with oil-prone skin ...Read More
Lovely & lightThis primer sits beautifully on my skin and doesn’t feel oily. It evens out my skin without feeling thick. Would recommend.
I would definitely keep buying this productI have dry cheeks with some old acne scarring and uneven skin due to these scars, therefore, it's super difficult to find a primer that either doesn't clog my pores or doesn't make my foundation look uneven and gross. Then I found this primer, and it seriously diminishes the look of my pores and applies so smoothly and lightweight. Love it!
Great for damaged skinI would highly recommend this primer to anyone who has irritated skin, whether you have huge pores, acne, ageing or greasy skin, this primer is gentle and soothing yet works so effectively! Best of all, after applying it your skin will feel soft and plumped up, your foundation will just glide onto your skin and sit so well.
Perfect PrimerDoes such a great correcting job and really evens my skin tone so it’s perfect for applying foundation. Subtly illuminates without being too over the top.
Great productI use this primer everyday, it's great for combination skin and I don't break out after using this primer. For best results, apply foundation straight after apply primer. I once left it an hour and it was hard to get an even foundation coating. Only issue with this primer is that it can rub off easily around my nose.This primer is perfect in summer, it can cover up shininess, and my foundation doe...Read More
Best primerI have an oily T-zone and love how this primer makes my skin look and feel. It helps make my make up last longer however I do still get a bit of make up slide off my nose if it is hot or has been on for a very long time. Nice consistency.
Good for improving longevity of makeupI have combination oily skin and this is the first time I have tried a primer. I was finding my long wear foundation wore off my nose by the afternoon. With this primer, my foundation lasts all day, however I do get some oil on my nose and forehead by lunch time if I don't use a setting powder. This primer really improves the appearance and longevity of my makeup and I will continue to purchase. M...Read More
Nice glowLeaves skin with a nice glow under makeup as opposed to the smooth primer . I received as a sample and used with the smooth for that illuminating look but not glittery so it lovely
Good product, only smallThis is a good product however nowhere did it mention it is only 30ml so not good value.
So smoothThis glides on my skin so smoothly and helps my skin so much, this is why I love samples from adore beauty I can try new things like this and its a lofe changer WILL be buying some!
Matte and non-oilyI do like this primer, I'm still testing it with all of my foundations. I've used it with the YSL fusion Ink, Revlon 24hr, Fenty. So far so good. I have oily skin and this does help with the oil control. I still need to blot throughout the day but it doesn't cake or pill which I like. When I need to blot (3hrs in) it doesn't separate or cake. It makes the foundation easier to apply which I love.
best of the threeThis one is the best of the EL primer IMO. It doesn't crumble and the best at oil control. It's also hydrating. Just a bit and it smooths the skin creating a flawless base.
Love it, used it on my wedding dayThis is a beautiful primer, and works really well with Estee Lauder Double Wear. It feels beautiful on the skin, and works really well at keeping make up in place, and mattifying at the same time. I don't use this product every day, but use it whenever I want my makeup to look extra flawless and stay that way. I also use it if my skin is a bit drier, to stop makeup settling in creases. Will co...Read More
