A win....It's ok...I purchased this product following a sugestion from a bloger I watch, and truly believe is a good product, the application of this primer is very smooth and a perfect addition to a good foundation for a sensitive skin....I do kind of wish that the primer had more of an oil-control aspect, because I noticed by the end of the day I give off a shine especially in the t-zone area - nothing that an oil blotter can't fix.

"Before I developed Veil Mineral Primer, I wasn’t a big fan of using makeup primers. They always felt like an extra and unnecessary step in your makeup regimen. But then I started working with a chemist on the idea of a next generation primer, and, after numerous incarnations, we came up with Veil. It was unlike any other primer I had seen—it was silky in texture, it concealed redness, it repelled water so your foundation lasts longer, and it had an SPF. I felt like it delivered in so many ways that I knew it had earned a place in my daily routine."—Carisa Janes, Hourglass Founder

In love...it's ok...Also use under waterproof mascara so it can protect from overdrying....So I'm not really sure whether primers work in general, to be honest, but I do like the idea of conditioning and protecting my lashes, and the Clinique primer works (or seems to work) great; and since I don't know how essential these are, I refuse to spend a lot, hence my appreciation of Clinique for its affordability.

Not bad...It's ok...This primer is wonderful, No creases and makes your eyeshadow waterproof....I have tried every eyeshadow primer Sephora has ever had (well, at least it felt like I had) and after using UD's for years and switching to MUFE's for a number of years, I was on the prowl for something even better because I was getting frustrated at allergy season time that even with eye cream lathered on my lids, MUFE's and UD's primers would pill or give me crusty corners (yeah, ew!

love it...Love it!...It hold my curls and quite waterproof....A little pressure applies a decent amount of product and using just a bit of a firmer hand will provide a fuller coverage and really pop your lashes.
What it is:
A primer that acts as an optimal mascara base—boosting the volume, lift, and length of lashes.

It amplifies as a primer and boosts volume, lift, and length to allow mascara to look its best. It can also be used to set by brushing over mascara for a long-wearing, water-resistant topcoat that helps reduce smudging and flaking.

Beauty Tip:
For an even more radiant look, apply Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II and Nutritious Radiant Vitality Energy Lotion to leave skin feeling soft and refreshed.

I am still in search of a primer that won't break me out or irritate my sensitive skin!!!...This product was ok....I honestly didn't notice that much of a difference if I used a really good moisturizer or a tinted moisturizer instead of the primer I felt the make up looked and lasted about the same.
