Holy Grail primer

Probably the best primer I've ever used & I've tried a lot of the hyped ones (MAC, Urban Decay, The Ordinary, Becca). It's very mattifying & smoothing, which creates the perfect base on my oily skin & helps makeup to last better than any other primers I've tried before. It's only downside is the tube it comes in is very small so tends to be one I break out for special occasions/weekends, while I rely on my Ordinary primer for day to day usage. Wish it came in a bigger size!

Best primer I’ve ever used

With skin in its 30’s but my brain in denial and believing I am still only in my 20’s, I was getting desperate to find a primer that would fill my pores from my negligent youth (kids, listen to your elders and cleanse, tone and moisturise). I’ve spent years looking for the ‘do it all’ primer and this is it. Like poly filler for my larger pores, and a luxurious silky grip for my ever more frustrating combination skin, this primer holds my makeup all day - and as a teacher pulling her hair out/ rubbing her eyes/ sweating in the classroom (as well as being a parent which holds its own dramas) - this is no easy feat! My makeup doesn’t oxidise, my contour is crisp and my skin feels fresh and able to breathe, despite the denser style of the primer. If I could give this primer 6/5 I would... but I can’t because that grade doesn’t exist- but it is worth it!

Great primer

When it says velvet it means velvet. A great primer, and makes my skin look great - I put it on my cheeks and forehead.

AMAZING and it works

I kid you not, this is by far the BEST pore filling primer out there, Literally blurred all my pores, shine and leaves skin feeling soft and incredible. I only just got this two days ago and is already in my basket for my next cult beauty purchase. Already looking at other 3CE products to try out. The smell is amazing and is worth the purchase. Only thing I was to say is I find the tube too small and feel I would need to stock up on this on my next purchase to avoid delivery just to get one product.

It separates my makeup

It's not bad, it hides my pores, but with any combination of makeup I try, it just makes the makeup after few hours separate and when I touch my face the makeup just slides off, and I'm using ICONIC London makeup stick and RCMA makeup palette:( I believe it's good but maybe just not for my skin type which is oily :(

I am absolutely in love with this primer. I only apply this on my cheeks and T zone. It certainly minimizes pores and reduces oilyness. Will be buying again and again.

Love this

Love this primer. I used a Dior Primer and have been in a state of panic as it has now been discontinued. This has been the BEST replacement. I tried so many and spent so much money on primers that cost double this. Only need a tiny amount so the size of this is no problem for me. Only wish it would restock sooner. As I have now ran out and have been waiting for a over a month for this to come back in.

Love it ❤️

This is truly amazing. I have oily skin and large pores on my cheeks. This primer keeps me matte and actually makes my pores appear smaller and makes my whole face look so smooth and velvety, beautiful product. I used to use Benefit porefessional but this is so much better and cheaper.

Difficult to blend

I bought this because it had such great reviews and was so cheap. However, I definitely will not be re-purchasing. Unfortunately I didn't find that it blended well at all and it actually made my makeup split and felt heavy on my skin. I have smooth skin already and prefer a light, silky primer. I had to really drag this over my skin. I wasn't keen on the smell at all either; it's like talcum powder. Wouldn't recommend.

My main concerns are shine and large pores. This deals with both amazingly, and as far as I can tell its not silicone based and has not clogged my pores. Great! This is the best primer I've used so far. I can't tell yet if it actually extends the wear of my makeup though. The first time I wore it to work, my colleagues immediately noticed a difference and said that I looked "flawless" without me mentioning that I had changed anything with my makeup routine. When I used a different primer the next day they said that I looked better with this one as it made me look like I have "baby skin"- as the name suggested! One thing I have to say I'm not too keen on is the slightly overpowering baby powder smell. It's ok at first but doesn't really wear off throughout the day. I've gotten used to it, but could do without it. A lot of comments about the size here. It is pretty small but per gram, it's actually comparable in price to a mid-high end primer. In terms of performance it actually performs better than anything else I've tried though. Well worth it!
