    The reviews on MAC's site are great. I can't find an ingredients list for this though. Can you post it? I'm always on the search for a silicone free primer that's not astronomically expensive. Silicone makes me break out like crazy but I'm sooooooo greasy, I'd love to find something that works.

    Is it possible to pat it over makeup during the day? I've pretty much had it with primers in general but I could be tempted to try this.

    Low Shampoo: Aveda Be Curly Shampoo
    Conditioner: Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture/ Perfectly Undone
    Treatments: SM Black Castor Oil Masque/ Packet Gelatine
    Leave in: Redken Diamond Oil Conditioner
    Styling: AG Recoil Curl Activator/V05 Mega Hold/Cornstarch
    Refresh: Redken Fresh Curls Curl Boost


    Between Waist and Hip Length (stretched), 2C with 2B roots

    Oh gosh, sorry, but it seems it's full of cones. I never think about stuff like that; I'm not a ~skincare person~ :sad:

    Water, Vinyl Dimethicone/Methicone Silsesquioxane Crosspolymer, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Butylene Glycol, Silica, Dimethicone, Isododecane, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Sucrose, Trehalose, Caffeine, Glycerin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Mannose Phosphate, Polyglyceryl-3 Disiloxane Dimethicone, Laureth-9, Caprylyl Glycol, Sodium Salicylate, Dimethicone Crosspolymer-3, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Cyclopentasiloxane, Di-C12-18 Alkyl Dimonium Chloride, Hexylene Glycol, Sodium Citrate, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Benzoate, Phenoxyethanol

    (It works really well, tho! I just took a 2 mile walk in 87 degree direct sunlight and my face is dry as dust!:tongue:)

    I don't t hink so bc it's a cream. It dries super fast on bare skin. But I think it would mess up make up. (I will try it and let you know...might take a while; I am forgetful.)

    Was going to suggest using blotting papers during the day...but just noticed your comment about them. But so far I haven't needed to blot. Do you dislike blotting w/ a plain tissue also?

    eveum, if you do, could you please let me know how it works for you. I suspect we have similar skin. Thank you!

    I use Benefit's Porefessional right now, and it doesn't go over makeup, which is why I can agree that blotting sheets are kind of horrifying.

    Aw man. Silicone primers generally make my makeup slide about. I try to limit the amount of products I use in the morning so there's less chance of products separating. Blotting sheets are okayish, I find that by the point I need them the oil in my skin has sort of like mixed with my foundation and the sheets then lift everything off including makeup. Which is pointless. If I can get a little sample of it I will certainly try it.

    MAC has a really generous return policy. If you don't like it they'll refund you.

    Nope, not possible to do this. I checked...

    For those of you looking for a shine reducing option that can go over makeup...

    Mally Beauty Evercolor Poreless Face Defender
    Mally Beauty Face Defender w/ Sponge Ulta.com - Cosmetics, Fragrance, Salon and Beauty Gifts

    This little compact is full of cones but according to any review I have watched, nothing about it feels slick or slippery. You can run your finger in it, over and over, and it won't leave a dent and does not really feel like anything is on your finger. You dab the sponge in it (some say rub) and then pat it on your face. Only stippling motions on the face, over the makeup. It cuts down the shine and blurs fine lines & pores and does not settle in lines or leave any type of cast like translucent powder.

    I have never used it but I've seen great reviews on it for years.
    When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

    I don't know why it has taken me so long to checkout some of these other threads...I always stick with the curly hair threads. I have always had excessively oily skin and in the last few months it has gotten worse due to coming off of BC and this humid heat where I live. This is really helpful information, I'll have to try out some of these products...hopefully something helps!

    If you can handle silicones on your skin the Mally Beauty Face Defender Fifi recommend is FANTASTIC. Unfortunately my skin can handle silicone and I broke out like mad. It's such an amazing product though and makes me so very sad that I can't use it.

    Thanks! I just looked at the reviews and it has great reviews! I'm not excited about the price but willing to try it 😊.

    Honestly you use such a miniscule amount that I wouldn't be surprised if one compact could last you a whole year. It is definitely a product you do not need or want to use much of. It's really a bit of a miracle. I'm still so sad I couldn't make my skin like it.

    Edit: I recommend going on her website and looking and the how to video she has. You'll see how to pat it on, not wipe it on.
