This is no miracle product but it does help a with shine a bit. Although it is called 'prep and prime' it is actually meant to be put on AFTER foundation and/or powder. However, I feel that putting on foundation, plus a face powder, plus this powder, is a bit much to put on your face. Especially if you are worrying about breaking out or looking cakey. I do like to use this product alone though, especially if I just put a little moisturizer on and then put the powder on after to keep my face from getting greasy--it definitely works better without having foundation/powder on first. Basically, the more product you put on your face the more likely it is to smudge off... often I will have foundation primer on, foundation, and a setting powder so adding the prime and prep is a LOT of stuff. If you are going to try this product, I suggest using it either just over moisturizer, or use it instead of a translucent or coloured pressed/loose powder. If you use it directly after your foundation it keeps a mattified look for longer!
