It took a while before I actually bought this since I was torn between this and Smashbox's Photo Finish Light Primer. I really was indecisive so badly. But in the end, I caved in and got me a tube of Never Let Them See You Shine Velvet Touch Primer. It nearly have the same amount of product but cheaper.
There wasn't much rave reviews that I saw online about this but I've trusted Philosophy's products for so long I didn't have doubts about this.
And I wasn't wrong. I so love the finish that this primer gave. Despite the liquid-y consistency of this product, it gave me such a matte effect instantly with no feel of oiliness whatsoever. My face was totally primed for makeup. Applying my concealer was a breeze and my foundation seem to stick to it like it was matched made in heaven. Needless to say, I am in love with this product. The hefty price I paid for (P1300), was definitely worth it.
Did I mention that this smells wonderful? Like an essential oil has been added to it. I couldn't exactly name it but it smells divine!
However, (yes, there still is), this primer like all of my primer isn't as long lasting. It lasted for 4 hours maxed before the evil oliness crept out... I wasn't really surprise since i have an oil-mine face and most of my primers last this long anyway. The Great thing is, I can re-apply this primer on top of my makeup (after i used an oil blotting paper). I tell you, it won't cake your makeup. Like I said, instant matte face.... again!
So, yeah... this primer is worth your attention. :)
I give this product 4 out 5 Kikay Pinay points. :)
Is this my HG primer? Well, still hard to say but right now its in par my Ellana Make It Last Primer and BareNaturals S5 Primer. Teehee!
