My Thoughts:

There aren’t many products that are this bad among first impressions, but this one makes the chuck-it bucket right off the bat. Of all the primers I have tried over the years, this one has to be the worst. Why? Well, because it simply doesn’t work. It doesn’t just fail at being a primer, but it doesn’t work as anything because it never stays on my face. This is one of those rare bad products that I received from Glossbox over the years and since I hadn’t received any in a while, I guess it was time to reset that clock.

Performance/Wear:                          ★/5

I have tried testing this over various foundation formulas and through different methods, all to no avail. This product simply doesn’t work and is a waste of time and product. I really wanted to like this because I love getting makeup products from Glossybox, and even though I don’t have oily skin, I could’ve used this on my clients with oily skin. In the end, this product doesn’t work no matter which way I try to dress it up. I’ve tried applying foundation while this is still wet and when it is dry, and all with the same result; it adheres to my foundation and crumbles off. When I let it dry beforehand, I’m left with this super-ashy and streaky layer over my skin, and it still ends up wasting my product. This company should just pull this product off the market and reformulate it because this is pure trash.

Price:                                                   ★/5

This isn’t worth a penny, to be honest.

Packaging:                                          ★/5

As always, I’ll be giving this a low rating because of the squeeze-tube packaging. Then again, this product is pretty awful on its own so it wouldn’t even matter if this was packaged differently.
