If you’ve seen any of my previous posts on primers (FAB Coconut Smoothie, Too Faced Hangover), you know that my skin doesn’t react well with most primers. I’m prone to breakouts and skin irritation when using primers – especially those that have a silicone base to them. In my August Ulta Haul, I picked up the Combo Control primer because it was just recently released!

My skin seems to do well with bareMinerals products so I was interested to see how this would work! With 1 oz of product, this primer comes in a squeeze-tube, which is great! The packaging is all white, and looks extremely clean. Since I’m used to more moisturizing primers, I was surprised to find that this primer was extremely liquid-y. When squeezing out, the product is really runny! With that being said, I can understand why they call this a milky face primer!

The consistency of the product feels really nice when applying it to the skin! It glides over the skin, and feels somewhat similar to a silicone primer. However, since it is a runnier consistency, I find that it really sinks into the skin! My skin feels really smooth and has a semi-matte finish after applying this! Foundation goes on a like a dream over this! I am loving the way any product looks over this primer! After several hours, this primer holds up extremely well! I have combo/oily skin, and I notice a huge difference when using this primer! My skin looks amazing throughout the day – it seems to help me stay matte for the most of the day! Compared to my normal moisturizing primers, this helps my foundation last all day!

Like most primers, I knew I needed to give this several weeks of testing! After using this every day (no joke!), I’m so happy to say that my skin has not reacted to this whatsoever! My skin feels and looks amazing with this product, and I love using it! I would 100% recommend this primer to anyone who has oily skin, but is unable to use most silicone primers!
