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. You can find it here: We hope this helps!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from She STAYS This primer does not move! Once it is on it absolutely acts as a barrier between foundation and skin. However, it is very sticky, and very difficult to get out of the container. This makes it at time hard to work with and it can dry out your skin. However, if you are looking for a primer that stays and mattifies this is it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to primer This is my everyday primer. I have skin that tends to be oily and my makeup often felt like it was sliding off my face. I've tried multiple other primers with lackluster results. This one keeps my makeup where I put it, and keeps my face from feeling oily. It is true that this stuff is thick and somewhat difficult to smooth. However, difficulties with the consistency of the product are easily remedied with a couple application tricks: 1) don't put it on if you have moisturizer or lotion on your hands or face. If you moisturize before makeup application, let it dry completely before priming. Reviews that talk about clumping are likely experiencing these results because they had leftover lotion on their faces or hands when applying. 2) apply it quickly and follow the directions regarding setting it. It specifies to set it by lightly tapping your face. I highly recommend this product for people with shiny complexions, just note that you'll have to get used to the application a bit if you are accustomed to using really light and dewy primers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Weird grey mask Am I the only one who has tried this product with various foundations and it always creates this weird grey-ish mask into your face, which starts to tighten your skin like it was a facemask? After applying this product (in a way that is instructed) the primer starts to, I don’t know react with oxygen?! and changes its colour to white/grey. It does leave a matt finish, but your face is pale and you can see the primer through (even full coverage) foundation?! I might’ve received a lemon or it might have been already expired.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for oily t zone I have a very oily t zone. By lunch, it's shiny and by 3pm it's an oil slick. This product is very thick, nearly bordering on difficult, and melts into the skin. I think it's going to take some getting used to to apply. That said, I'm barely dewy on my forehead nearly 11 hours after applying it my make up over it with zero touch ups. Also pleased the dryer parts of my face didn't suffer from becoming too dry. Very pleased to have found a primer that I can work with!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BIG NO This primer is not the best. My foundation looks so dry after using this it’s gross and I HAVE OILY AF SKIN. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Primed and Pretty I absolutely love this primer. Does exactly what I need a primer to do. I have quite oily t-zone and this keeps me matte all day. It has an ever so slight white cast but it dosent matter since I use it under makeup anyways. Will definitely repurchase. I think I found my new favourite!!
