Rated 1 out of 5 by from Feels horrible I bought this yesterday and have so far worn it alone. No foundation, just primer. When I first tried to squeeze it out, I couldn’t and I had to squeeze it really hard to get it out. It’s very thick and when you apply it to the skin, it doesn’t smooth out. It’s not smooth, just rough and thick. Also, it feels like your applying Elmer’s glue TO YOUR FACE. And the outcome looks like you put a white clay on your face Absolutely horrible and I wish I never wasted my money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dont like it. I bought this about 2 weeks ago and I don't like it. After it dries, it becomes patchy on my face. I don't like the fact that this was made in China. I don't like my makeup products made in China.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it’s supposed to I bought this a month ago and I am pleased so far. I live in a very humid climate and it helps keep my makeup matte with minimal touching up required throughout the day. My skin in prone to breakouts however and I feel as though this primer clogs my pores.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from VERY MATTE!!! So I bought this to try with my Can't Stop Won't Stop Foundation. However the method of application of the primer is important as well as the application of the foundation. I bought the Can't Stop Won't Stop Brush and it just didn't work for me unfortunately. I began with the regular buffing/circular movements and it was very patchy. I had to overuse foundation to cover any streaks. It DOES HOWEVER go on like a dream with a beauty blender! I would recommend this to anyone with oily skin and struggles containing oils under makeup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dupe for the Becca poreless primer I'm so glad I bought this and able to save money. This primer works just like the Becca poreless primer. If you like the Becca primer but don't want to spend $40, get the this primer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The primer I’ve been looking for! I came across this primer in Ulta while aimlessly shopping around on my weekly spree. I saw the newest NYX products on an end cap and have always truly been more than satisfied with the quality of their products for the price points they have. I put a dollop on the the back of my hand, rubbed it in with an easy oil like glide (easy application) then tapped on it just like the packaging suggested. I was actually picking my jaw up off the ground because of how tacky the product got. The best way I could think to compare it was like non-slip tape on stairs. This stuff does not budge! I couldn’t wait to try it. (I was so optimistic I purchased all 4 boxes of the product). I’m a week into using it and I am floored. My makeup doesn’t budge! I LOVE this product and recommend to anyone who has oily skin and is a full coverage queen like me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need Matte? Yes, please! I have very oily skin and have tried plenty of mattifying primers, moisturizers, powders and sprays. High-end and budget friendly, never really made much of a visible difference. Until this primer. I didn't expect it to come out of the tube so thick when I put it on my fingertips to apply it. When I realized what the texture was like, I used a silicone applicator that has the gummy bear texture and patted, not rubbed, a small amount (green pea size) in localized areas on my face until I had my entire face covered. You can use fingers, but my experience was it applied a bit patchy. My local NYX store didn't have the CSWS foundation in the shade I needed, so I put Total Control over it using a silicone applicator. The results were flawless. Kept my oily skin in check with no oily breakthrough for 8+ hours. That's NEVER happened. In the spirit of oversharing: Went to sleep with a full face on, woke the next morning and no color transferred to my sheets!

I have very oily skin. Will this work with my skin.

Asked by: Msjanedoe81
Hi Msjanedoe81! Our Can't Stop Won't Stop Matte Primer provides your Skin with a Matte finish, however it does not claim to prevent skin from producing oil. We would recommend to use a light base moisturizer that would control the oil production of the skin prior to applying our Matte Primer! We hope this information helps.

How do you recommend applying this? It seems very patchy on my skin and horrible up close.

Asked by: Nicoledeex
Hello Nicole, for best results we suggest spreading the creamy primer evenly over the skin and gently tap to set it. However, our Total Control Drop Primer may be a better fit for you. This feather light, easy-to-move primer dries down to a soft, velvety matte finish and creates the perfect base for your foundation. You can locate it here: We hope this was helpful!

Is this humidity resistant?

Asked by: LadyCasey28
Hey there LadyCasey28! Thank you for asking about our Can't Stop Won't Stop Primer. This primer will provide you with a matte finish. If you are looking to seal in your primer and foundation, we would suggest trying our Matte Makeup Setting Spray, which is a gorgeous shine-free matte finish that is lightweight and comfortable while working hard to make sure your makeup stays put.
