Rated 1 out of 5 by from Combats redness, makes breakouts I have combination skin, mild rosacea, and acne. I've been using the Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser for a while now and I loved it, but I've been wanting to try this one. When I tried it at first, I loved it. My pores looked great and my face didn't get oily during the day. The formula went on great. I stopped caking on my foundation and concealer the way I used to. But within a few weeks, I totally broke out. I'm using two prescribed topical acne treatments right now, and my acne was actually improving before I started using this primer. I haven't changed any of my other products in a few months, and I can't think of anything else that could have caused it. While my redness and how my makeup looked overall improved tremendously, I have to stop using this product, as my acne is now worse than it ever has been.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Oily, didn't cover red at all.. AT ALL... Bought the Blur + Red Coverage - This product comes out white not at all green as the tube shows. Extremely oily and thin. Do not use if your face is more oily. I put in on under my foundation and it made no differance at all. I doubt the most of primer even stayed on as when I applied the foundation most of the primer just got absorbed in the foundation. The tube says to use it alone. Tried that and it covered absoultey nothing. If anything it worsened my red as it irritated my chin because it was so oily.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from terrible primer!!! i bought this about two months back and have been using it since and it is probably the worst primer i have ever used. I usually have great reviews for maybeline because I have used them forever but this left my skin oily and clogged my pores to the fact that i now am having trouble with acne which ive never had before.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not worth the money This product in NO way controls any redness whatsoever.....I simply works as a moisturizer. do not buy this product

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I was a big fan of the Instant Age Rewind primer but apparently they have replaced it with this. I got it to try and it's a waste of time. Clogs pores and does not help foundation at all. I may try Baby Skin since reviews seem favorable, but extremely disappointed they discontinued my favorite primer ;(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I feel so pretty! I have never used Maybelline products before, I am a Sephora girl! So glad I bought it! My skin is perfect! It actually glows and my icky redness and scars are gone without looking concealed! You have made me a very happy girl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blur+Illuminate is my new fav! The blur+illuminate primer is super amazing. It leaves my skin feeling silky and matte at the same time, unlike some other drugstore primers that leave my skin feeling really dry. I have dry skin so this primer works perfectly for me. My makeup stayed put all day, plus I didn't get the usual under eye creasing. I totally recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'll be the first to admit that I am very picky about the products I use on my face. I have sensitive skin and hate heavy moisturizers and/or primers on my face. I did enjoy this product and will probably put it into my rotation. Pros: smooth and satin-y, great base for make up, and great to use on it's own Cons: it's a little thick, borderline greasy, I had to use a lot to cover my face (I'm a big believer that a little goes a long way). It's a good product for it's price. (I received this product in a VoxBox from Influenster in exchange for my honest review)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Primer I've used I tried this primer with 4 different foundations of varying prices just to verify that it was the primer that was no good. Every single time it caused the foundation to slide all over my face. I felt like I had to reapply my foundation withing 3-4 hours of wear.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as I expected I really wanted to try the baby skin but when I was ordering, it was out of stock so I thought I'd give this a try, bought it at the same time as buying the fit me matte and poreless foundation and powder.It feels soft and silky but no visual change

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Master prime-redness and blur(worthless) I purchased master prime redness and blur control a couple weeks ago and wanted to give it a try for my facial redness. It was thin and oily and did not cover my redness at all. I ended up getting a very bad break out, disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Obsessed with Blur+Illuminate! This is an amazing product. I have very dry skin so I use this under a dewy foundation and it looks flawless. Lines are gone! And makeup easily last 15 hours WITHOUT a touch up. I won't use anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blur + Illuminate ROCKS This is the ONLY Primer I will ever use...It gives me the perfect base for use under my makeup and I can even wear it alone...Adds a more youthful look to my skin...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I wore the product under foundation and my full make up .. I applied the primer first and you have to be very careful of the amount you use. If you use just a little to much it makes your face look really oily like 20 min after you apply your makeup .. I tend to have combination/ a little oily skin and I don’t know if I could use this product on a regular basis without getting break outs on a regular basis. I liked the primer but there were also things I didn’t like about it .. I don’t think it’s something I would personally buy on a regular basis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makeup Lasts Forever I tried this primer with my makeup this morning and so far it has been 16 hours and my makeup still looks like I just put it on! This product is amazing!
Date published: 2016-12-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This primer really surprised me! This is a great hydrating primer! It’s has a light weight feel on the skin and it absorbs fast and doesn’t make your skin feel greasy! It’s easy to blend and works well with all the different foundations I tried it with! I also like that it doesn’t have an over powering scent to it, just has a classic moisturizer type of smell. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because I would have liked it to be a bit more hydrating! But over all I feel like it’s a great primer and I will definitely keep using it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I've tried the redness reduction and the illuminating version. They are decently priced, but I don't think that it helps my makeup over long periods of time. It isn't crazy thick which I like and it feels nice on my skin. If I'm going to be working long hours or have performances (I teach ballroom, Latin, and swing dance) I lean towards other products. I do keep this on hand for easy days. I haven't used it in a few weeks and I've noticed a decrease in breakouts (PCOS sucks), but I don't have enough evidence to say this product is responsible or a contributing factor. If I find that it is I wil .sadly not repurchase again. If it isn't a cause then I will likely keep it on hand for easy days and in-between when I'm out of my expensive primer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I got this product from influenster to try out. I have very dry skin but even more so in the winter. At first, I thought the product would come out in more of a liquid shape but it felt more like a moisturizer. It quickly absorbed into my skin and did not leave any sticky residue behind. It definitely hydrated and smoothed my skin out like it was suppose too. I would definitely purchase this when my current one runs out. I have tried many other primers for dry skin and this has become one of my favorites. I would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was impressed with this product, I have heard of face primer before, but I have never used it. It was so lightweight and smooth. I only had to use a little bit to cover my whole face. My face felt soft and was not oily. I used it under my make up and felt that my makeup stayed on much better than normal. I also used it just as a moisturizer in the morning. The pictures are before applying, after applying, and afterapplying my makeup. I received this product in the mail from Influenster in exchange for my opinion/review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made my skin look FLAWLESS! Re: blur+ smooth -As an almost 67 y/o, I have some lines on my forehead, eyes, and mouth. This product really seemed to ''erase'' them! I couldn't believe the results! Usually use Geller Spackle; this is better. Please don't discontinue this one!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT EVEN GREEN! This is the worst product I have ever used. I squeezed it out if the bottle and it came out as a white color. I thought maybe if I put it on it would still cover the redness. But NO. It made my acne look even more red. Do NOT buy this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a wonderful product from Maybeline , at first I wondered what it could do , I wanted to try it As is straight on my freshly washed face. I applied it over my face and Voila! the primer spread evenly , my face looked much brighter. I didn’t need much of makeup but I bet the makeup would definitely stay. I cannot say how it would stand in a hot & humid weather condition because when I tried it was 40F. This is not greasy and very light on the skin, doesn’t leave any dry spots too. Love it

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay so I got this product for free in my voxbox in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. But honestl, Im not all that impressed. I was so excited and wanted it to be a great product, but, it just wasn't for me. I tried it under ny foundation first and immediately I did not like it. It felt very tacky and my foundation wasnt blending well at all. I did allow it time to dry before applying my foundation. The next day I tried it I wore it alone. My face felt smooth but it looked super oily after an hour. I have fair skin and it doesnt generally get oily but it was awful with this primer. I really wanted it to work but I cant get over the tacky feeling. However, I did notice my pores looked less noticeable when this was under my foundation. So I will give it 3 stars because it does seem to smooth and hide pores.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Burning sensation, skin irritation appeared I bought this about 3 weeks ago and only used it five times. The first four times I felt a bit of a burning sensation and thought it was due to the fact that it was "hydrating" my face, turns out on New Years Eve, when I wanted my makeup to look flawless, it caused a horrible burning sensation and it caused skin irritation on several areas on my face. I am very disappointed. Most of my make is from Maybelline and this one makes me dought continuing with the brand :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was thoroughly impressed by this product! Upon application, it was nice and smooth over my face. It was easy to blend into my skin. The primer left my face more moisturized than normal and didn't interfere with my foundations. After a few hours of makeup use, I touched my skin and it was rather smooth and still hydrated! I feel like Maybelline FaceStudio Master Prime Primer definitely gave me a better feeling face! Maybelline FaceStudio® Master Prime Primer

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like the primer as it creates a flawless base for my foundation. It glided on smoothly on my face and helped with the dry patches. What I did not like and have to take points off was the scent. I find that it smells awful and like chemicals. I hope this can be reformulated to infuse a more pleasant scent or not have one at all. It was not noticeable after I put on other face products. I received this product in my Maybelline VoxBox. All opinions are my own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This could not have come at a better time! It’s so very cold here and my skin is super dry! I love how it felt going on-like a lightweight moisturizer and did not feel greasy or oily at all! Definitely felt great under my makeup and made my skin look smoother. The only reason I wouldn’t give 5 stars is because I felt like I needed to use a lot of product compared to some other primers I’ve used, but maybe that’s just because my skin is winter-dry right now!

I have a lot of redness around my eyes. Can I use Blur+Redness Control around my eyes before applying concealer?

Asked by: suzyq1234
Hi Suzyq1234, we would not recommend using Master Prime Blur + Redness for strictly around the eye area. This primer is made to be used all over your face. To neutralize redness under and around your eyes, we recommend our Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer in the shade Neutralizer.

I have both dark spots & fine lines & (big) forehead wrinkles. Should I use just one primer for blurring lines or the one that evens out skin tone or both?  I am hoping 1 will do the job because I'm not a fan of using too many products!
