Estee Lauder's Matte Perfecting not quite perfect


Yesterday I tried out Estee Lauder Matte Perfecting Primer (they also have an illuminating primer).

Estee Lauder's website describes it as : "Discover the power of a primer with this targeted formula that controls oil and reduces shine so makeup looks smooth, even, flawless. Soft-vision optics minimize the look of pores and flaws to create an even canvas. Skin-calming Green Tea and Vitamin E rebalance and perfect. Oil-free."  The formula is light weight and I needed about a dime size to do my whole face.  It did leave my face softer and smoother. 

After Primer application

As you can see there's not a lot of difference in the before and after.  But I found it did make my foundation go on smoother and it definetly made it perform better throughout the day.  My forehead got a little oily, but I was running around all day doing laborious things so it was bound to be much worse with out the primer.  I would say this is a very good basic no frills primer for those who just want their makeup to last longer and keep the shine off.

With primer and Teint Miracle on
I still think for the money I would go with MAKE UP FOREVER's primer as it gives immeadiate shine control that is noticeable.  But it's nice to have options!
So next up Hard Candy's Primer,
