Worth the hype

Was not expecting to fall in love but this is unlike any other face primers I have ever used and its a good one. Makeup looks bomb over it and does what it says it does.

Good for oily skin, but pills up every now and then

It eliminates all oiliness from my T zones especially. But try not to overlay the primer with more primer though because it does pill up and leaves a very uneven powdery layer. Would buy it again though, just gotta apply with moderation

Not the best. I use nars concealer and foundation but just don’t find this does much. Wouldn’t repurchase.

Dries out my oily skin

Love most of Nars products. I have very oily skin however this primer made my oily skin look very dull and gave it a rough texture by the end of the day as it was very drying on my skin. Will not recommend and will not use or purchase it again.

Great for oily skin

Really love this primer for my skin! I have really oily skin and this primer keeps my face matte most of the day. It also keeps my skin moisturised as I never feel like the primer dries my skin out. I use the primer without anything on top of it and I love it! I would definitely recommend it.

Another win for Nars!

I tried this out as a sample at first and after my first wear, I had to purchase the full size! It is perfect for anyone with normal/combination skin as it is not too drying but keeps your oils at bay throughout the day. I love it as it gives a nice satin finish, not too matte and not too dewy. However, on days I'm out for longer and need slightly more help with my oils, I like to powder it down. I love that it does not have that silicone texture like most pore-refining primers as I feel like my skin can actually breathe, and it still does an amazing job at smooth and mattifying the skin.

Best Product For Oily Skin

I have the worst oily skin. Make-up also increases oil production in my skin and I have tried every primer out there. Prior to trying this, I was using Smashbox photo finish, which was ok, but I did get some oil buildup after a few hours. This product keeps my skin oil-free all day, its a miracle. Definitely worth the money!

Love it!

Bought my third tube of this! The trick is to not use too much of it on each use

Will repurchase!

This does exactly what it says on the tube. Pore and shine control! It's the only thing that makes me foundation stay put all day. I've quite large pores and combination skin, so I will use it on my chin, forehead and around my nose. On a normal day, my foundation would break apart but this has made it last after a 10-hour workday. LOVE. Will definitely repurchase when my current tube is finished. Can't do my make up without it now.

This product is fantastic and does exactly what it claims. I was a little hesitant at first because I like to stick to familiar products however this is going to be a continuous product in my makeup bag. I work in a warm environment so my makeup tends to become oily by the end of the working day however this doesn’t seem to be an issue with this primer. I FaceTimed my partner and he noticed a difference straight away, as he kept asking ‘why does your face look so smooth’. So not only does it improve your makeup application to the naked eye, it translates well with technology so selfies will look amazing.
