I received this as a deluxe sample with one of my orders and was extremely skeptical at first because of how creamy and oily it feels. Since I have very oily skin, I use primers which are specified for oily skin. I decided to give this one a try and was very surprised at how flawless my skin looked after an 8 hour day at work! I was so happy and the sample is almost gone! I am not using this for the \”gold flakes\”, which you cannot really see when you put this on your skin. It does work wonders however at ensuring makeup stays in place and does not cake and I do have to say I prefer this over MUFE\’s mattifying primer. I will be making the switch instantly Oh and one last thing I love that a little goes a very long way with this primer. The deluxe sample lasted me so many applications so for the price I know I can get my money\’s worth!
