I never used a moisturizer. But, I was using a BB cream instead of a normal foundation. I always liked how it made my skin look.

I add this primer over my usual day moisturizer (Caudalie Vinoperfect Day Perfecting Cream) so I have some SPF on my face, and it really works perfectly with it. I haven't tried the primer without the moisturizer, but with the two on my skin it doesn't feel overburdening at all.

I have sensitive skin that's generally drier so I need lots of moisture. I do my normal skincare routine (cleanse, tone, serum, and then do face oil with moisturizer). I use a face primer then use this tinted primer. I probably don't need to do both, but I like using the Sunday Riley primer like a tinted moisturizer rather than an actual primer!

answer 5
This goes on smooth and creamy but it dries down quite matte. While my skin is combo/oily, I find that at least a light moisturizer is necessary an doesn't interfere with coverage nor finish. Something heavier, like an oil based facial cream might cause it to slide around.

If you sweat a lot or get oily, there is no need to use a moisturizer under this.

Question
Is it good for oily skin?
I have oily, sensitive skin with a few blemishes. Tinted moisturizers are too heavy for me causing me to break out and I'm an oil slick by the end of the day so I stay away from them. Would this work for me?

I normally buy matte primers. I also use De-slick spray by Urban Decay. I never had an oily problem using this, and it's not advertised as being matte. I liked it a lot. In fact when I ran out and went back to an old primer... I felt oily! So, I hope this helps.

answer 2
I have combination skin myself, and whenever I wear this primer (which is all the time, not gonna lie), the oilier parts of my skin need powder less often, sometimes if at all, and the drier parts don't look nearly as dry. I recommend it for most skin types; drier skins will need something more hydrating, or a really good moisturizer underneath.

I would say yes, if you use the product with a powder over it. I have normal to dry skin and depending on the look I want (totally matte or semi-dewy) I add translucent powder over the t-zone when I use this.

But for oilier skin, I think you would need a good coating of mattifying powder all over the face with this.

That said, I don't think it will ADD any oiliness. It's actually quite a balancing formula. Hope that helps you out a bit! ;)

My skin is not oily so I can't answer from experience, but I do think that this formula is so lightweight that it doesn't clog my pores. I would suggest asking for a sample at a beauty counter like maybe Barney's? You could try it out first before spending the $. I know that the Sephora store I go to doesn't carry this line in store.

i normally get fair/light in everything I purchase. I got a free medium sample and I liked it a lot. I am buying medium again. However my Mother who is a Medium... thought it was too light. I hope this helps.

answer 2
I faced a similar problem when I first picked out my primer, in which I bought the lighter shade and fell in love with it. The primer itself is self-adjusting; which means its sheer enough that even though you're slightly yellow-toned, the primer itself is quite a neutral tone, so it'll probably match perfectly with your skin, and it won't make your skin feel oily or dry at all. In fact it makes my skin feel smooth and I need to powder it less often throughout the day.

Medium. This has a strange way of just sort of blending into the skin in a way that suits a wide range of tones in each category. My experience has been the medium is the best for fair to medium or medium deep tones. The lighter color is for very, very fair people like redheads.

Your colour would definitely be Medium. It has more of a yellow undertone and is slightly darker than Light.

Question
What is the scent?
Some reviews have mentioned "the scent" but they don't specify what the scent is -- flowery, citrusy, patchouli, etc. Anyone know? I can't stand scented face products, so it has to be super mild for me to tolerate it. Thanks!

As far as "scent" goes, I'd say it has a pleasant, slightly orangey smell to it, similar to Ole Henriksen's vitamin c stuff; which I love, and it smells like something I would definitely not mind putting on my face.

I usually by Fair/light in everything. I got a free medium sample and it looked good on me. So Medium is probably safe.

Even though there are only two shade options for this product, I'd recommend getting the medium-to-dark shade, since the primer itself is so sheer, and it adjusts to suit your skin tone. Even though you are only light-to-medium, I'd recommend the darker shade, only because I believe the lighter color will be too pale for you. Enjoy the product, it's wonderful. I highly recommend it!
