This product comes in an opaque squeeze tube with a small opening.

The product has a thin, gel-like formula with a slightly silky, silicone-like texture. It looks nude-colored out of the tube, but applies translucent once it’s blended out.

I actually didn’t find that this product did much of anything. It didn’t really make my pores look smaller or less noticeable. It did help mattify my skin very slightly, but the difference is minimal.

The big negative about this product is its inclusion of fragrance. As I’ve stated many times before, you shouldn’t be applying fragrance to your face because it is irritating to your skin.

For $30.00 you get 0.75 ounces of product. This is a small amount of product for the price when compared to other mattifying products on the market.

    I have heard so many good things about this primer, that I’m tempted to buy it! But that price always makes me say no! LOL
