I bought this about a year ago and use it only on occasion. So far, I've liked it but because it's my first primer I don't know how it compares to anything else.
It comes in a small tube with a narrow nozzle at the end. The product that comes out is semi-solid in consistency and pretty dry. It is easy to apply with your fingers and dries matte and smooth on your face. It covers up all pores and your foundation goes on it perfectly after. It sort of has a powdery finish compared to a liquid finish and that's great. Once it settles on your face, you won't know it's there. I only use it on special occasions (weddings, etc) when I really want to have a perfect finish to my makeup, otherwise I don't bother with this extra step. On your face, it's light and you barely feel it. Really love the look!
It is a little on the pricey side for the size of the tube so I use it sparingly. Would still recommend it to anyone whose trying primers out and have not found your go-to primer yet. I just trust Clinique makeup so much, because it doesn't cause me to break out!
