Most Helpful Positive

Lovely

Chai

Very velvety and nice. Works beautifully with other Estée Lauder make up products. I did find it takes some time for it to settle into the skin before you can apply anything over it but it’s worth the wait.

Not for oily skin

D

Received this as a sample and used it with Estee Lauder Double Wear Light. I loved how smooth it made my skin for makeup application however it was not suited to my oily skin and found it made my makeup almost slip off when I started to show some shine leaving my face uneven. Would be better suited to dry skin types.
  1. Free sample

    Mandy

    Got this as a free sample. Have tried it a couple of times under foundation. It's works well and keeps makeup intact. Staying powder of foundation is improved with this primer but nothing amazing as I have oily skin.
  2. Silky

    Stace

    My skin felt so smooth when I used this product however I didn't feel like my makeup lasted as long as i hoped.

  4. Amazing but expensive

    Brittany

    For over $50 expected more of the product giving it is only 30ml of product however the product is so nice and feels great on the skin and makes your makeup so nice,
  5. Great Primer

    Madeline

    Super good primer, love how easy it is to apply the Double Wear foundation on after. Makes my skin smooth and velvety soft. Haven't had an issue with breaking out after using it unlike other primers.
  6. Super smooth

    Em

    I received a sample with my last order - pretty impressed. It is almost jelly like in substance, and smooths onto skin with ease. Has lots of super slip and definitely primes skin well for makeup. Really good over larger pores on my cheeks/nose. Only downside for me is that after trying twice i’ve Realised it doesn’t work well if you have any oil underneath, and I like to wear facial oils pretty much all the time. Still, definitely worth forgoing them and using just this before foundation for a night out/photo opportunity. I’ll consider buying the full issue when my urban decay primer runs out.
  7. Great for dry skin and blending

    Mic

    I received a sample size and even though I love my current primer, I thought I’d give it a go since I love the double wear foundation. Definitely went well with the foundation. It was a velvety texture which is different from my current primer but it meant my skin felt soft and hydrated unlike my current primer. My current one creates a tacky texture to hold foundation but smooths out the look of large pores but this primer does the same thing without the tacky feel. Literally feels like a smooth moisturiser.
    Because of the smooth texture as well, it made contouring so much easier as it’s so easy to blend with my foundation.
    Would highly recommend for dry skin and double wear users !

  9. Pretty impressed!

    Danielle

    Received a sample of this from AB, I usually go for a more illuminating primer however this had a really lovely finish! Will definitely keep this product in mind when I run out of my current Becca primer.
  10. Lives up to its name

    Ash

    This primer definitely left my skin feeling a lot smoother. It has a nice smell and luxurious feel, however I do feel there are better out there for the price, especially for pores and blurring effect which is what I usually go for. For that reason, I probably won't repurchase.
  11. smoothes but...

    Denise

    This applies smoothly, and certainly mattifies skin and makes it look better. Holds on to makeup ok, but I don't really like the feel of it. Very heavy, and seems like it contains silicon.

  13. OK for the price

    Jen

    This primer was very smoothing and blurred pores but didn't help at all with oil control, so not good if that's what you're after. Felt smooth and not sticky on the skin.
  14. Great for hiding the pores

    Rachel

    This is a product you must be gentle with.
    I received a sample of this months ago and was minimal with using it since I loved it from the first time. If too much is applied and rubbed too vigerously, IT WILL BEAD EVERYWHERE!
    Honestly this product should be used in your problem areas where the pores are prone to show. And once smoothly applied, you should press the product into your face to make sure its 'activated', I found if you dont press, your foundation can move a little and its hard to fix for a flawless face.
    In saying all that, its a brilliant product to hide those horrible pores of ours. You just gotta tread gently with it.
  15. Perfect for summer

    Jess

    I've previously used the EL mattifier every day so I'm keen to try the smoother. The primer is thick and makes my makeup set quickly even if it's humid/ hot. So I'm excited to try this in the summer heat. Just make sure you blend your foundation quickly as it can be hard to touch up once the foundation has been added to primer.
  16. Stunning

    s

    Such a nice primer that makes my skin stunning and smooth and makes makeup application so easy
  17. Great base for foundation!

    Jo

    I bought full size after being impressed with a free sample.

    I generally have normal-to-dry skin with occasional oily T-zone, and a small amount of this primer smooths out my skin and reduces the appearance of blackheads. My foundation goes on much better after using this and wear is extended.

    I've found if you use too much of the product and/or your moisturiser has not fully absorbed it can congeal into small blobs so it's best to use a little and add more if required.
  18. like velvet!

    catherine

    This feels like velvet when you rub it into your skin, its soooo soft and smoothes out my wrinkles underneath my make up! I also like this because it evens out the look of my acne scars too, so when I wear full coverage foundation it looks more flawless and even. I do notice a difference in how long my make up lasts when I wear this primer too, its worth the money! and I'll keep buying it for sure.
  19. Smoothing

    Anna

    Smooths and blurs texture on my skin and creates a beautiful base for Estee Lauder Double Wear! Extends the weartime of my foundation too
  20. perfect with estee lauder double wear foundation

    perfecting skin

    i found that estee lauder double foundation is best worn with a hydrating primer under it where this primer comes in. this primer feels so nice on the skin and would create a smooth base for the foundation to be gilded onto it. have dry skin
  21. Flawless makeup

    Carly

    This product feels like silk! So nice! It’s a great base for makeup and makeup looks flawless on top. I still use moisturiser underneath as I didn’t find it moiturised my skin at all. Bit pricey BUT a little bit goes a LONG way
  22. very velvety

    Abbie

    This feels very velvety going on the skin however it isn't very moisturising so I would recommend a good moisturiser on first then this on top. It is great for fine lines and wrinkles though, it definitely has a smoothing effect when you put it on then ut your foundation on top you can definitely notice a difference.
  23. Excellent primer

    Vilashini

    Received this sample with my order and was pleasantly pleased with it. It makes my pores less pronounced and makes my foundation go on smoothly. It also has no harsh smell which is good. Will be buying this.
  24. Smoothes your skin

    Abbie

    It literally smoothes your skin! great for fine lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores or scars. It feels very velvety and soft, especially rubbing into the skin it looks as good as it feels!
    I love it under full coverage foundation because it gives such a smooth and flawless base, definitely worth the money! A little bit goes a long way, I use a pea size for my entire face and buy it about every second time I buy foundation.
  25. Not sure if it’s worth the $$

    Shayma

    Received this as a sample however wasn’t impressed, didn’t find it affective, no difference if I was to use it or not
  26. It's OK, slightly greasy feeling though when first put on

    Chantelle

    I don't mind this product, it was OK, but I don't found it made much difference to how my makeup went on, stayed on, or looked. I normally use another primer, which I find very similar to what this delivers, and it's under half the price. So I don't think i'll go out and buy this.
  27. Made me break out

    Hana

    I received a sample of this and unfortunately, it pilled AND made me break out. I don't get extreme breakouts, just little bumps, so I gave it a few tries to see if it was a one-off occurrence, but it happened every time. It did make my skin feel very smooth once it was applied, but the fact that it pilled undid any smooth effect.
  28. Super soft

    Rosanna

    Received this product as a sample and at first was skeptical as it comes out looking very sticky and almost gel like. However, once I put it on my skin, it felt amazing and the texture is really nice and soft on your skin. Dissolves to give a smooth feel unlike other primers I've used before. A little pricey, but good quality.
  29. Expensive and underwhelming

    Naama

    I received a sample of this primer and I have to say, I was really disappointed. There are so many smoothing primers out there, and this expensive formula was really difficult to spread evenly on the face because it kept rolling into little balls.
  30. On the fence

    Chantal

    I received a sample of this primer and found it was hard to use without it rolling into balls. Managed to get it to run into skin and then applied makeup. I noticed that it smoothed pores out, keen to give it another go.
  31. A hard product to use

    Jess

    This is a tough product to review. I love estee lauder and use the other primers every day but this primer is really frustrating. I was really excited to try a foundation that would minimise pores, create a smoother base and help my foundation last longer. But this primer is too thick and dry to be used on its own. The primer can build up around fine lines, especially around my mouth and eyes. It also drys super quick and can mean that I miss a spot and only notice once I've added foundation and can't get an even finish. I've been mixing a small blob of this primer with the matte primer instead to give a better result.
  32. Excellent

    Fleur

    Great primer for smoothing pores, feels
    nice on skin, and it a great base for the foundation
  33. Smooth base

    amelia

    Great for oily or combo skin- this primer helped mask my pores and created a smooth silicone feeling base for my foundation
  34. Noticed a difference

    Deanna

    I received the primer as a sample and was very impressed with how my skin looked with it on. It felt soft and smooth and my foundation applied really well on top. I can't wait to finish the primer I have so I can buy this one next.
  35. Lovely but not for fine lines

    Sarah

    Feels lovely to put on so smooth , however, doesn’t stop makeup from setting in fine lines around the eyes and not good for dry areas . Somhave now purchased set and refresh to see if this helps .
