I've been using this for a week, if not longer, and it isn't consistent. One day my face will stay matte, other days (following the same routine) my face is shiney in a short space of time following application.

I used to use a different primer & thought I'd give it a go, it smells amazing & does just what I needed it to!

Only used a few times, not too thick. Only need a small amount. Only thing is it doesn't make the face feel that it's been primed. (Personal preference though) does its job

Matte primer
I really like many illamasqua products but this one is not one of them. The primer is very grainy/coarse and if it comes too close to the eyes they'll water for hours (I've never reacted to any makeup before). Also it does not make the skin matte as most pimers, it feels kind of sticky when on and I guess it is designed only to be worn under makeup . But actually it doesn't do wonders under the makeup either.

So glad I got it
This primer makes me look like a flawless doll and smells like a dream <3

27 September 2014

Great!
This works perfectly with my oily skin! It doesn't feel like covering my skin in a sort of coating like many other primers but absorbs into it like it isn't even there. It holds off shine for hours, not an entire day but then no make-up product really does. I think this has actually helped a bit with my acne problems as well. So happy, definitely recommend it!

31 July 2014

Good for oily skin.
Bought this in recommendation by one of the girls at illamasqua in store and I am definitely purchasing again. I have a very oily t-zone, I still get an oily nose but it's not as bad as it is without the matte primer. I had the primer for a year, I wear it probably 2-3 days a week, so I think it lasted well for the price as well.

27 May 2014

Worth the purchase!
This was the first Illamasqua product I tried, and was hooked ever since! I'm not a fan of heavily perfumed foundations/primers, but I will totally forgive this one, it smells incredible, almost like icing?! Aside from the great smell, it works. I've had a bit of an issue regarding durability with it, as I wear a lot of liquid foundation and use a flat brush as opposed to stippling brush/beauty blender, so maybe a lighter foundation if using this? I have combination skin and it's great, but for more oily I'd recommend hydra veil as I found it a little better, but that's just me. You can definitely see the difference with/without though!

Lovely
This is a great primer. I love the matt look but don't like the idea of my face looking flat & dull either... However this primer gives my face a great balance of the matt effect as well as life, if that makes any sense lol my face didn't look anywhere near as matt as the advertised pic which is great! I have generally dry skin but with an oily t-zone on my face & it really did control those oily areas. A bit pricey but worth it :o)

28 January 2014

Brilliant!
I have oily skin and this is this is the only thing that keeps the shine at bay and my foundation in place all day.I love it!

Best Primer For Oily/Combination Skin
This primer evens out combination skin, if you have oily areas and dry areas. It also is great for holding make-up in to place, and I wouldn't say it keeps my skin 'matte' but it definitely substantially reduces shine. I find it works really well under Skin Base, Rich Liquid, and the Vichy range of foundations. I use it day and night and it's wonderful.

2 September 2013

Smooth!
I can't believe how good this is. It manages to create a very smooth, pore-less complexion. I've also found my foundation lasts hours longer without having to be touched up. Definitely worth having!

8 July 2013

Love
Very good, doesn't make my combination skin oily at all and provides a good base for my foundation and stops it from clinging to the dry areas. Will be buying again.

matt primer by kelly
Absolutely love love love this stuff! I have oily skin and this product is the only thing that keeps my skin matt for hours! I use skin base on top. Literally life savers. Will never use anything else.

Best Matt Primer
I love this for when I want a more matt face it lasts all day its great and it is a great primer to wear for if you want to add your own highlight and create 'dewy' look rather than using a primer with reflective properties in it.

10 March 2013

MATT
Really great primer. I have very oily skin and if i use this with a light foundation it really last all day. I've used it with Rich Liquid and doesn't make much difference, I still get oily. But with something lighter its AWESOME!
