"This stuff is incredible for making your makeup pop and makes everything easier to blend. It also gives a lovely refreshing effect on my skin and my makeup stays on for much longer than it originally would have and the product lasts aaaages. It"s worth the £17.50 for definite."

"Love this product I"ve had it for 3 months and not even used half of the bottle, I use it before applying makeup and then after my make up to set it, I"ve found its made my make up last longer, before make up it makes my face feel more hydrated and I will definitely be re purchasing"

"It"s hard to say whether this has actually helped my make up stay longer but it does allow for smooth application to the skin and or that it is highly credited. Good value for money but it looking to prolong make up wear I would look elsewhere."

"What a time to be alive. This primer is inexpensive, is a fantastic base for make up and it"s non-comedogenic so that means it doesn"t clog your pores. My skin just loves to collect dirt and leftover make up even after cleansing (yippee!), so this lightweight primer is a godsend."

"Amazing primer, colour corrects the skin, allows makeup to glide on smoothly and helps with coverage. No product is wasted as the pump pumps product gradually out in small amounts and system that doesn"t allow product to get left behind."

"I bought this about two weeks ago after suffering with discolouring for years. After applying foundation on top my skin is now and even town without my make up looking cakey. It"s so good my nan has bought one after asking how I got rid of my redness and dark circles ???? I will be investing in more of the stila range after using this primer "

"Omg. If you love silk skin you need this. I wouldn"t say it shrank all my pores and minimised them but it certainly made me and my skin feel amazing, even my mum used most of mine because it"s just that amazing! You don"t need a lot either! It"s brilliant! "

"Good primer and keeps your makeup on all day. Also sets a nice Base. Smells nice and easy to apply"

"I love this product because it promises that your make-up will stay on all day with it. The application is nice but as its SPF 50 it does go all sticky and hard to absorb."

It feels comforting and people at work asked me what I had done to my skin! I can`t recommend it enough; I don`t lavish praise lightly but try it because it makes a huge difference to the appearance of your skin"

"This is a beautiful highlighter - I"ve got the rose shade, which isn"t really all that pink (it"s quite natural actually). After foundation I apply some to my palms and press over my cheekbones and cheeks and it makes me look very fresh and awake. It"s not glittery or overly shimmery - so perfect for daytime! Try some - you won"t be disappointed!"

"I have dry, sensitive and acne prone skin I"ve tried numerous products to stop flaking. I recently bought this and, although it"s quite small, it"s worth it and I would purchase it again if I can"t find another one. It make my skin feel amazing and silky and my foundation went on so smooth. My eye bags did however crease but that may just be me!"

"It made skin feel papery. Didn't help foundation to go on smoothly. Had to cleanse it all off and start again without it. It was really horrible."

"Beautiful packaging ofc. It"s a very light weightless primer. I would recommend moisturise wait 5 mins apply primer wait 5 mins n then apply foundation for the best finish. You don"t need much 1 pump does the job. It"s not super shiny it just leaves your skin with a glow, for those wanting a matte finish don"t worry the shine doesn"t come through after foundation. "

"It"s good but not amazing. The best thin. About this product is the glitter particles in there to blur your skin, but it isn"t the best primer. It"s good for taking pictures as the flash back isn"t too bad. But I Say try it before you buy it . "
