I have the green primer and the pink illuminating primer. Both were a waste of money. The green one doesn't do what its supposed to and blends away completely and the illuminating one also doesn't really leave that glow that I was expecting.

I really like this product. It's a great primer and obviously a great price as is Catrice in general. The only thing it is lacking is being more moisturizng, I do have really dry skin so I just make sure to put a good moisturiser on before-hand.

Other primers left me looking blotchy by midday. This certainly stayed good all day, keeping my makeup looking fresh.
Sister this is the primer you have been waiting for

These are great! I have the white tube and the pink tube, for different reasons - the white is great for controlling shine and perfecting pores, as well as makeup longevity, and the pink gives a glow and helps to blur imperfections by reflecting light.
Both work well and are worth trying out!

I'm a firm believer that a good primer equals a good makeup day. So when I saw this product, and its inexpensive price, I thought I'd give it a go.

I purchased the green Prime and Fine Primer as I have very fair skin, so any redness usually shows through my foundation. Now Catrice promises that this primer minimizes shine and reduces pore visibility whilst giving skin a mattifying look. This is not the case at all. Aside from the weird scent, the product just really does not work. It has a greasy feeling after applying it to the skin, and to be honest, the green does not do much. My face was very oily after about only 2 hours of wear (under my usual foundation), and my makeup came off with the slightest touch (it would transfer on my glasses etc.)

I gave this primer a shot a few times, and switched up my makeup application, but was left disappointed every time.

Bottom line - it's really not worth it!

I was never a fan of primers because I always questioned their purpose, until I found Catrice Prime and Fine. I love the tube its packaged in, as its easy to carry around in my handbag for quick touch-ups during the day. It is fragrance free and I love the texture! It sets my make-up nicely and gives my skin an airbrush finish!

This product is definitely a re-purchase and Catrice has never disappointed with their quality of make-up!

I do not like this product much because it doesn't leave it clear but gives a whitish effect.
It also leaked multiple times in my bag and I had to throw it away, don't recommend this to anyone

This was the very first primer that I ever tried. I thought it was appropriate when I looked at the price.

I have oily (combination skin) and this primer didn't help to minimise shine throughout the day. I tried it with and without a setting spray and my make up seemed to make it to the end of the day when I had the setting spray on. Without the setting spray, I found myself having to blot and freshen up almost every 2 hours. This is not ideal for a person who works all day.

I've tried it on my t-zone only and on my entire face too and I end up with the same shine and admin regardless.

It does help to reduce the appearance of my pores and in turn my make up feels like it sits on my face better. This paired with a good facial expert brush for application seemed to be a good combination.

It probably works better for people who have dry skin, but I would not repurchase it again.

It's priced reasonably well.

I recently purchased the Prime and Fine (pore refining anti-shine base) by Catrice Cosmetics. I have really come to love this product. It works great for my skin type and keeps my makeup in place for hours. I'm sure there are other brands out there that probably work ten times better but this product works great for me. I have very sensitive skin and this product works great.

I do think the anti-shine base primer makes provision for a smooth make-up application. It just does not control oil at all. I would not repurchase this product, but for someone with dry skin it will probably work better as it does not dry the skin out.

The price is probably the best thing about this primer, but I would rather pay more for better results!

This was the first primer I ever bought because it was so reasonably priced, but after using it, I did not notice any difference, and the green one has glitter particles which my foundation didn't cover which in result made it look like I put shimmer all over my face, after using the MAC prep and prime, this primer is really not that effective

I love most Catrice products - especially their price tags! ;)
I LIKE this primer - not my absolute favorite, but it does the job at a very affordable price. :)
- preps your face for foundation
- a bit too shimmery for me (contains glitter particles)
- The green does eliminate some redness in the skin, but not majorly.
- Average compared to MAC prep and prime

I am having mixed feelings with this product at the moment. The reason for that being is that I have also been testing the new Yardley illuminating primer.
When you test two products, you cannot help but draw comparisons. Yes, to be totally unbiased, the Catrice primer does create a smooth canvas and there are no sight of pores, and yes it does assist in my foundation staying on longer.
But I am not loving it. I am liking it.
