Great for minimizing pores!I have been using the green primer for almost a year now and it's incredible how much it covers up the redness on my cheeks. I have never been more impressed with a product. I've used high end primers that are suppose to work to cancel out redness but none compare to how Maybelline's green primer works for my oily skin tone. It really does a great job with settling into my skin and minimizing my pores, gives a really nice blurry type of finish, and is super affordable. A little goes a long way and is now a product I CAN NOT live without!! I also notice that my foundation glides on way smoother with this primer on and helps it stay on longer. Completely impressed with the quality of the product and the affordability.

The perfect primerI have tried a lot of primers. And I mean A LOT. High end, low end, silicone based, none silicone based...and I recently just bought the blue and illuminate primer and am beyond impressed. This is the best primer I have ever owned or used. I love how lightweight and non greasy it is - that’s huge considering I have oily skin. I also love that even though I have oily skin it doesn’t make me look overly dewy. Just a nice healthy glow peaking through my foundation or concealer. It’s even great to wear on its own for a no make up look. The best part about it? It has broad spectrum SPF in it and the price point is affordable! Holy grail product and I will be purchasing this again for sure!

I didn’t hate this product, but didn’t love it either. I used it in conjunction with the Maybelline Fitme Dewy and Smooth foundation and honestly couldn’t tell a difference in my foundation application with or without the primer... so I’m not sure how much it actually did for my face. I use a moisturizer every morning whether I use a primer or not, and feel like the moisturizer and foundation provided plenty of moisture on their own. I also was not crazy about the consistency of this primer... I prefer primer to have more of a silicone texture that kind of disappears into the skin and fills fine lines more.

LOVE THIS!!! <br style="font-size: 16px;">First off, let me start by saying I have been using Maybelline products ever since high school and I have not been disappointed with any of their products. I have been wanting to try the FaceStudio Master Prime Hydrate + Smooth Primer, because I haven't found a primer that I just love and fits me well, but I finally did and I absolutely LOVE it! It is easy to apply on, super smooth, and keeps my makeup looking good while staying on all day! I recommend this to anyone wanting to try a new primer! It is super affordable too! Maybelline products are the best and I will continue buying this product! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

DisappointedI have been using baby skin as a primer for over a year now. Product worked great and reduce my pores as it said it would. Then I tried the master prime, green, redness reducer. This time, the product did not do what it said it would. My redness still showing through. I have a very very mild rosacea, and some adult acne. I was disappointed, and would not recommend using this product if you have mild rosacea. I don't believe it would do anything if you have severe redness. I doubt it. I was so excited to try this product because it always had such success with Maybelline. I might go to foundation is Maybelline FIT, Matt and poreless. When using the products together, it seems that I had better coverage without this primer.

I received this product for free in exchange for an honest review from Maybelline and Influenster. I was pleasantly surprised to see this in my voxbox. It's a cream primer which is cool. I'm used to gel like primers. It feels AMAZING on my skin. Winter dries me out really bad and my skin devoured this. It feels very smooth, very soft, my foundation went over it flawlessly. So far has left no clogged pores. No irritation. Really did blur some of my massive pores. I haven't noticed any shifting in my foundation even after napping. I'm excited to use more of this with some of my other foundations. Definitely would recommend! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

As I previously mentioned, I have never tried any primers at all, because I always just had the feeling that it was gimmicky and doesn't really do anything to prolong your makeup.
I have tested this primer out several times and I don't really think it does anything for my skin besides add an unnecessary extra layer of product.
I have not experienced this clogging my pores, giving me breakouts, irritating, or doing anything bad to my skin, the problem is that it just doesn't do anything positive either.
I will continue to use this to see if there is any long-term benefits of it, but I will likely not be repurchasing it if I ever run out. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I have to admit, when I received a package advertising dewy skin, I was a bit off-put as a matte-loving girl. However, I am very pleasantly surprised by the result! The primer went on almost like a lotion, leaving my skin hydrated. The foundation was a bit more liquidy than I am used to, but it still applied easily and blended out to a nice medium coverage. The finished product is a hydrated, natural look that doesn’t look or feel greasy as I somewhat expected from a “dewy” product. I will definitely be using these two products some more, especially in the summer as the foundation has SPF in it!
