Best primer


Enhances the makeup

Make up lasts long

People who always have the need to use makeup on a daily or regular basis must have a good primer in handy to make the makeup stay for a longer period of time. For such people I would suggest Neutrogena Shine Control Primer. This primer forms a nice and smooth layer between the skin and makeup for a good application. It also evens the skin tone and makes the skin's surface soft and smooth enough to do any light or heavy makeup that stays on the face for a longer period of time. This is surely expensive but it does its work in a magical way and definitely the difference is seen after the application of primer. This product gives a nice shine and glow to the face that anyone can go out with only primer and without any makeup. This primer suits all skin types and blends in easily.

Light weight primer


Does not clog pores


Neutrogena Shine Control Primer comes in a beautiful black tube that looks very elegant. The primer has a lightweight and watery texture. It spreads easily on the face. I spread and blend it quickly otherwise it leaves a white cast on the face. It is used in very little quantity, one small drop is sufficient to cover the entire face. It gives a clean smooth canvas to the makeup base. It is almost invisible under makeup. The makeup stays easily for 6-8 hours. It controls oil and shine of the skin. It is best for oily skin and in summers when the sweat makes the face look oily and shiny. It does not highlight the fine lines or cause skin dryness. It works best when used on well-moisturized skin. I am happy that it does not cause any breakouts or eruptions on my face. The quantity is sufficient in the tube.

the best primer fr oily skin.


absorbs oil well

Neutrogena Shine Control Primer is a boon for oily skin people. I have started using it along with neutrogena Shine control makeup as my skin tends to release so much of oil and spoils my makeup. This is in liquid consistency and can be applied very easily gives a great coverage. It absorbs all my excess oil keeps my makeup intact but does not dry the skin. It is very light weight and gets absorbed easily. It conceals the dark spots much better. Sometimes I prefer using it alone or with make up too. The primer itself is also effective in absorbing excess oil and keep your face bright and shine free. It gives a matte finish and stays for a long time. It is expensive but worth of money. The only concern is its thick consistency and does not flow easily. It comes for a really long time as it needs a very small amount.

Primer for shine free face


Gets absorbed easily.


Lightweight formula



Today I am going to share my experience with Neutrogena Shine Control Primer. I bought this as my primer was finished. This is made from innovative, patent-pending rice protein. I am surprised that rice contains proteins. Anyway its consistency is grainy and liquid. I apply this before foundation when I go for a full make. Otherwise you can apply it alone also. It prepares our face for make up. And the beauty is, it does not clog the pores. I am happy that it removes excess oil from the face and provides shine-free face. I like my face to be bright but not shining with too much oil. It acts like a sponge and blots excess fat and oil from the pores. It keeps the make up longer. This is non-greasy and light weight. I found it very easy for applying. Comes in a travel friendly tube. But bit expensive primer as the quantity is very less.
