I found that with or without a primer, I got the same wear time, which easily made it through a 8 hour work day in the dead heat of summer and broken air-con at work (yep, grimy), so that impressed me greatly. I even tested it on the waterproof claims after watching a tear jerker one night and can vouch that my base held up with next to no wear!I will say that I found that I got the best results with a brush, namely the Hourglass Vanish Foundation Brush. If you’re a damp sponge lover for foundation application, this might not be for you, and in fact I find in general stick foundations don’t love being mixed with water. Instead I got best results when applying a couple ‘streaks’ across cheeks, down the nose, and a “V” on the forehead and chin. Then as the product melts into the skin a little, I buffed it in with the rounded tapered Vanish brush that really did give me an airbrush finish. The brush is super soft, dense and the slightly flattened side makes patting on extra product on trouble areas a breeze.
