    Comments about Boots No7 Beautifully Matte Make Up Base, 1.35 fl oz:

    As a primer, this product is adequate-- meaning that it helps lengthen the lifespan of your foundation.

    However, as a product that's meant to maintain a matte finish (and which says on its package, "Stops shine for a matte finish" as well as, "Keep shiny skin under control all day long") it doesn't really cut the mustard.

    The texture, too, is very strange and thick. Several times in trying to apply it, the product felt like it crumbled into pieces instead of absorbing into my skin. The times that I managed to spread it and applied a full face over it, I was already starting to shine an hour later. So much for an "all day" matte..

    I will be using the remainder of what I have (if I can get it to spread instead of clump), but I think I'll be sticking to the No7 Stay Perfect Primer from here on out.

      I wish they had this back when i was in high school. My face gets so shiny that i hate wearing makeup anymore. i have tried everything and nothing would stop the shine. Not until this stuff. Please do not stop making it. i wash my face in the morning with Olay shine, shine go away cleanser, then apply my oil free moisturizer and then this stuff. let it soak in your skin. i don't use foundation anymore. just a little mineral powder over my skin. some lip balm and i'm ready to go. i am 51 years old now and just love this stuff.

        Comments about Boots No7 Beautifully Matte Make Up Base, 1.35 fl oz:

        I use this product everyday that I wear makeup. After moisterizing (a must before applying this product), I use the No.7 Matte primer before applying makeup. I do have severely oily skin and this product last for 8-12 hours. After 12 hours it doesn't look freshly applied, but considering how shiny my skin would be w/o it, it works wonderfully.
        I've tried other primers, but none work as well a this one for truly oily skin. I really wouldn't recomend this for dry or even combination skin.

        If you can find it, the perfect moisterizer is the No. 7 Day

          Comments about Boots No7 Beautifully Matte Make Up Base, 1.35 fl oz:

          It was a negative review that got me to purchase this primer. They said that it reminded them of a glue like consistency and I was like...maybe that means it will stick to my face instead of sliding around! And it did. I also like that it has kept my acne prone skin more clear. The oil control is amazing on contact but after a few hours you will need to use blotting paper, at least I do. I have combination skin.

                I was a user of Boots No. 7 Shine Free Primer for Matte Finish and had great results with it, but it became unavailable so thought I'd try this Boots product. Unfortunately, it does not control my shine so I won't be purchasing again.

                This matte primer is not matt at all, well, sort of. It rubs off and flakes so easily if your face is not very well moisturized, you have to get your face
                well moisturized then you put this primer on. I have used primer before but not so often. This primer doesn't keep the face matt for a long time at all, maybe for about an hour for me, and then I will get oily face. Maybe I have such an oily skin so this won't work for me, but I'm sure that someone else might like it.

                This is the best base/ primer I've ever used! I've bought the high priced products before but I always come back to this one. It creates a matte finish to apply make up on and is totally shine free. Since using this my face is never oily and looks great throughout the day. Great product, great price! I won't buy another base/ primer again. This is the one for me!
