Never lets me down

I have worn this product for years. It’s not rare at all for me to get questioned on how my makeup stays looking fresh. But it was really tested when I was recently at my goddaughter’s outdoor wedding. I live in a hot, humid climate that is tough on makeup, especially in formal clothing. But, this primer never lets me down. No matter how much I “glow”(southern girl for “sweat”) as long as I pat gently, & don’t rub, my makeup remains flawless. Photos started at 4:00 in the afternoon. The last one that got snapped of me was on the dance floor after midnight. It was fun to still look put together after such a big day with all the feels of a wedding gone perfect. Other than a lip refresh through the night, I never touched my face. The bonus is that it feels so lite on my skin, never cakes or creases, and keeps the aging rays of the sun at bay. I truly love this product. I think you will too.

Great for oily skin!

I have somewhat oily skin and this is a great product to keep shine away and oil away from your face and keeps your makeup fresh!

It does what it says

I have very oily skin and typically can’t use anything that is mattifying because I will break out. This stuff is impressive and is my go to primer now. It keeps me from getting oily, keeps my makeup in place and doesn’t break me out. Plus it has SPF which is a must. I use it with the ColoreScience powder foundation and love it!

OK without makeup, but not so smooth under it

I got this for my husband to use to even out his skin, and he seems to like it OK. When I use it, I find that it doesn't quite go on as smoothly as I want it to when wearing under makeup. If you don't need this with makeup, I'd say go for it, but if you are using it as a primer, it is not my favorite.

Primer or Foundation

I bought this to go under the Colorescience SPF mineral powder to help with oil control. It's a little heavier feeling on my skin than typical primers and doesn’t really control my end of day shine. Too heavy feeling to wear in summer months in Texas.

Won't let you down

This product is perfect for creating a protective base to your face before applying other foundation or makeup. I love it and have been nothing but happy with the results.

Vendor is Super but Product has changed - not for the better

The vendor, LovelySkin was awesome. The free samples they offered were terrific, too. However, the new version of what used to be Colorscience Skin Calming Primer is not as good as the original! I don't like that scent has been added. I am also not as happy with the consistency of the new product. I'd say, bring back the original Skin Calming Primer.

Great for my skin

Best So Far

I like the smell and consistency of this primer. Feels very velvety. It makes makeup application a little trickier since the primer grips the product but I definitely find that it makes my makeup last longer and kills shine. Last for about 6 hours for me before I start blotting/powdering and I have reaaaaaly oily skin.

Skin Mattifying Primer is GREAT!

I have been a faithful user of the Skin Brightening Face Primer SPF 20 for many years. I decided to give the Mattifying Primer a try, and am sure glad I did. This works great under my mineral powder make up and helps keep the oil slick at bay.

i recommend this product

Previously I was using smashbox primer but wanted one with sunscreen. I like this product but I usually wait about 10 minutes before applying make up

Makeup application is more difficult...

This primer goes on nicely and feels very light on the skin, but it makes the application of liquid foundation a frustrating and difficult task. It almost feels as though you are applying foundation on a glue-like surface, rather than a smooth surface that other primers produce. Using this primer wastes more time on makeup application, and also wastes more foundation in the process. And although it produces a matte finish, it is no more mattifying than other primers on the market. It is so "sticky" that when I blot my face with tissue to soak up oil, minute remnants of tissue get stuck to my face. Perhaps this primer is better-suited for those who wear loose mineral and powder foundations.

Great primer!

A little goes a long ways! This primer made my makeup last all day, kept the greasies at bay, and smelled great. No breakouts, didnt feel pasty like some primers do. Highly recommend!

Been using for 1 week

So far so good...its really does mattify the face. Also makes it incredibly smooth for applying makeup. I dont notice as much oil on my face come the afternoon, so no shiny face anymore. Cant say it helps with blemishes much, unfortunately, I have very hormonal adult acne and little to nothing helps with that. But it is nice and does give my face a slightly softer look and feel.

Simply amazing

A bit pricey for a primer, but works like a charm, covers imperfections nicely and leaves a nice canvas to work with for apply makeup.

Excellent product

This primer covers a multitude of my imperfections, evens my skin tone, and also can double as a quickie foundation. I use powder over it and off I go!

Get It, It's Worth It

This is my first time using the CS line and since I have problem skin, I decided to stick with all of the Let Me Be Clear steps instead of trying a different primer/moisturizer, which could have lead to me blaming CS for oily skin or more breakouts (age 35). Don't substitute a cheaper/different primer with this CS line. If you use the 4 steps, you'll love the results. I just wish I had found this out sooner.

Truly a clear skin primer

I have combination skin and frequent monthly breakouts & blackheads that caused me to forgo makeup during that time. Pro Let Me Be Clear primer has solved this! I am very, very happy with it.
