Since I've oily skin and combination/oily skin people definitely need face primer prior foundation application to control oil production and allows makeup to stay for a longer period of time before sliding or fading off. Without face primer my makeup usually starts sliding off after 3-4 hours and sometimes every after 2 hours after makeup application if the weather is humid.
W7 Prime Magic Camera Ready Face Primer comes in 30 ml clear plastic tube. It is a clear viscous primer without any scent. It looks pretty heavy but smooths on the skin like dream, the thickness of the primer makes it ideal to use just a blob and it does glide and settle on skin very quickly by minimizing those fine lines and pores and makes your face velvety smooth and soft within seconds. I did feel my skin bit oily at times when I skipped my primer part but this W7 Prime Magic mattifies my whole face just in seconds even without having my oil controlling moisturizer underneath primer which I could never do that before until I got this Prime Magic. And it do reminds me of Smash Box Camera Ready Face Primer.
It minimized my pores beautifully and I've noticed makes my foundation to glides smoothly and even better then before along with a dream blending. My skin does feel/looks smoother and velvety soft when touch. As for application just squeeze out the small blob of Primer Magic and apply it on face. Wait for 20-30 seconds to set and seeps into skin well prior applying foundation on skin. Magically it does prevent my foundation to get oxidized on my face as its some what helped preventing it which is another added plus factor for me.
For staying power, I've no complains at all. I had to touch-up after every 3-4 hours to combat my oil production that seeping through my foundation. But with this, I HAVE to say my makeup stays matte all day without any touch-ups. My makeup goes even better, stays on better and looks even best too. I've got couple of other primers too but so far this is the one who is winner for me. And on top thanks god the product is odorless means no smells of those strong/faint scents at all and as it is loaded with silicone's so far it hasn't broke me out or clogged my pores either.
Over all this is a winner for me and I'm definitely going to repurchase it as it is a hit for those having oily/combination skin type who are looking for a budget friendly primer that mattifies skin for a longer period of time without any added touch-ups.
