Rated 4 out of 5 by shmacdonald keeps makeup in place
I waited to review until now because I wanted to really put this primer to the test. I now can say it combats oil better than anything i've used and i'm a Sephora junky due to my problem skin. After 30 (feels like 40) degree days in Toronto my makeup has stayed put without getting oily (I blot 1 time mid-day only on hot days, down from 6-7 times/day or more with previous primers). Also I never get that cakey look that oil causes. The reason I put 4 stars is the name of the product is wrong, it does not blur my acne blemishes or little lines but it creates an incredible base for my foundation and concealer which have never looked so good. I have read reviews about the price but the price makes sense and is much better than smash box, mac, and MUFE (i've tried them all). My acne is even getting better but i've made some other changes so I don't know the real "cure" but this tells me the primer is definitely not making my acne worse.
The texture is strange and if you aren't careful you will drop it on the floor or counter so really cup your hand. just start blending it in with a finger and it spreads really well. You don't need a lot of product to do your whole face. for the first time in awhile i'm not self-conscious when meeting someone in public mid-day because i'm confident my make-up is still intact. I'll be buying again and again.

I am thrilled that my makeup is lasting all day, thanks to this awesome primer. Not just that, my dark spots are blurred in the most natural way <3 [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I have extremely oily skin and within 10 minutes of cleansing my face I look very shiny on my nose and forehead. Well, no more! I began using Instablur after reading rave reviews and I am in love with it. I use it alone over moisturizer, or under mineral makeup. Occasionally I have a glow to my skin after several hours on a humid day, so I blot with rice paper and I'm good to go for another 6 or 7 hours. It can be a bit tricky to apply and sometimes I lose a little, but it's not a big deal. I always have extra tubes because I never want to run out of it. You will be happy you tried it. Worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KJinDC Very Good Product
I was skeptical of primers for a long time. I didn't really understand what they were for, and I was afraid they would make my skin oily. After many friends assured me this wasn't the case, I finally gave in. I LOVE this product! Not only is it not greasy, my skin feels softer than before! And I swear my blemishes are clearing up. I would recommend this to anyone.
