I’ve tried all the major primer brands with 0 success. This primer is light and smooth (Ive been told it’s a gel base) that slightly sinks into my skin, leaving a poreless appearance (unlike thick silicone based just sat in my skin and thin water based dried me out) plus theres 0 scent. ...I love that it's silicone free but still does a great job of smoothing the skin, and it leaves your with a natural radiance - my makeup always looks amazing when I use this.

took a lot of trial and error for me to see how to best apply this primer and to have it not pill or seperate. I loved the gel consistency and the tacky base it created for makeup so i tried my best to make it work. ...I bought the jumbo version after trying other grip primers and at first I didn’t feel the gripping but after a minute or two it would dry and I would apply my makeup. for the price it’s nothing life changing.

Non greasy, without that silicone feeling I hate! It’s smooth and silky texture and the best part is it makes your skin glow without being too shimmery or sparkly. ...AMAZING FOR NO MAKEUP DAYS...I can’t yet speak to how this works under makeup but used alone on a no makeup day? INCREDIBLE!

Great primer!...It’s almost like it’s silicone, I don’t even know how to explain it.

MAKE UP FOR EVERStep 1 Primer Shine Control

Color: Shine Control - for oily, normal, combination skin

253 Reviews


I find it controls my oil really well (and I'm like 3-4 oil sheets oily). 4/5 stars because of how finicky it is, but if you're looking for a non-silicone shine control primer, this is the one. I got it as a sample and went back to buy the full size since....I first purchased the small version of this to test out. I chose this primer because I have oily skin and this doesn't have any silicone products, like dimethicone.

Skin Type:
Normal, Oily, and Combination

What Else You Need to Know: Achieve a blurred, matte complexion for up to 20 hours with the Step 1 Primer Shine Control. This comfortable formula is made with mineral clay powder, absorbs oil, and controls shine while extending the wear of makeup.


I have combo/oily skin and very large/prominent pores on the tip of my nose, sides of my cheeks that meet my nose, and part of my forehead so for me a pore filling/smoothing primer is a must under foundation. I would love for a silicone-free primer to perform as well as a silicone-based one but this just doesn't. ...Unsure About Effectiveness of this Primer...Does go on and feel similar to a silicone based primer despite being cleanly. I haven’t been throughly impressed with this product as it makes my cream products harder to blend I don’t think I will be purchasing this again.

What it is: A clean, silicone-free, primer that helps texture, pores, and uneven tone instantly fade out of focus and boosts skin hydration for a soft-focus finish.



Highlighted Ingredients:
