things to rave about
  • Perfecting: "Sheer Envy makes my face look smoother and almost poreless. My foundation looks flawless when I use this. It make my foundation look like MSBB (my skin but better)." by slimchicklovesMAC
  • Smoothing: "I have EXTREMELY dry skin (think the Sahara + eczema + every skin disease caused by dry skin ever) and two extremely dark, tender, dry and painful eczema spots under my chin. Usually my makeup there appears cakey no matter what I do, and my foundation + concealer will fade only there so easily. After using this over my moisturizer, my skin and makeup have never looked so flawless, even there!" by natabo
  • Keeps Makeup Fresh: "This primer keeps my face matte and makeup looking fresh all day. I used it the morning of St. Patrick's Day and didn't wash my face until late that night. My makeup still looked great after 12 hrs. and I hadn't touched up all day." by SouthernComfort80
  • Doesn't Clog Pores: "Unlike my old primer from E.L.F. it doesn't cause little bumps on my forehead to appear (that really irritated me)." by Monisams17
  • Controls Oil: "omg finally that keeps my oil away all day!!!! I have super oily t-zone and ive had this on for about 8 hours and there's no oil on my face, I cant believe it!" by makeuplab
  • Sanitary Squeeze Tube: "This is a white tube with a squeeze top opening. i like that its sanitary and you can squeeze out what you need." by Christiaan5
things to rant about
  • Greasy Texture: "This is yuck! It feels oily and weird very silicone feeling kinda like the Smashbox one. I used it for like 2 weeks and I couldn't stand it anymore no matter what combo of foundation and powder I used i still had that slick booger face feeling hours later. ick never again" by LaLaGlamfairy

is it for you?
Want a perfecting, silky primer to blur imperfections, fill up pores, and create a smooth canvas for foundation
 Desire a very long-lasting primer that keeps makeup looking freshly applied
 Need a mattifying primer to keep oil at bay


 Dislikes silicone primers that have a tendency to feel slick/greasy
