Questions & Answers for SEPHORA COLLECTION Silicone Free Foundation Primer

Question
After using this priduct, I put on my Urban Decay BB Cream and it began to flake as I put it on. Why?
I have combination skin and it has been rather dry lately. I moisturized with an oil-free moisturizer a few hours before applying the primer and makeup. The primer felt absorbed but I applied the BB cream almost immediately after. Just wondering if it's the product that's not right for me or I am not applying it correctly. In ever came across this problem with a primer before.

Try letting the primer sit on your face for at least a minute before applying foundation. I've had this same problem with another brand of primer and found that when I let the primer sit for a minute or more it did not flake the foundation.

I had issues with this primer too. Try using less primer, since you have already purchased it. I have come to love Philosophy's no makeup makeup as a primer (it doesn't have the silicone texture), but Smashbox seems to have the best primers. I would ditch this one once it is gone.

Question
When using under eyes, does it prevent concealer from settling into fine lines?
I have a few fine lines under my eyes & when I use concealer my fine lines are even more apparent. I was told to use a silicone primer to prevent that from occurring & was curious to see if this primer would help me with my dilemma.

I do use this underneath my eyes but I only apply a very thin layer of it. Then use my concealer pallet and have had no creasing BUT I do set underneath my eyes with a lightweight powder.

For me so far this hasn't helped very much with my under eye lines and wrinkles. I have a similar problem with concealers really highlighting my lines, and silicone-based primers have helped a bit but this one really doesn't make it any better or worse. If it helps, I recently switched from a thicker cream concealer to a power one and this has worked the best so far. The coverage for my dark circles isn't as good but it really helps hide the lines.

You need to pump the primer several times on a new bottle
