I had my eye on Laura Geller's primers for a while now and I got a sample of this primer and thought 'why not try it now'. This is a tinted make-up primer and it supposed to give a glow to the skin. It is tinted but it didn't give me any noticeable glow after I applied my foundation. The product itself is a touch nude with rose gold shimmer in it. Thankfully the shimmer is very small and not chunky, chunky shimmers are a no no for me when it comes to face products. While I didn't notice any glow, I did notice that during a full day with a full face of make-up, I did get a bit oily like I always do but my make-up did stay put which I really liked. My biggest complaint about this though is that it made me break out every time I used it. For some reason, my skin doesn't like primers that have shimmer in them at all. And after I used this, I would notice a pimple or two would show up each time. If you have acne prone skin or sensitive skin you might want to steer clear of this one. I really want to try the original one because I do like the staying power of the primer in general. But for this one, I won't buy a full sized version of this and save my money for other ones instead.

Primed pores okay, didn't really notice lot of glow with this but that could also be a good thing for many people.

A review for spackle in Ethereal.I wanted to review this because this seems to be the only product which really gives a glow from within.Once I had this primer on and nothing else on it and my husband asked me what do I have on my face since it's so matte,good looking and still kind of glowy at the same time.I would not pay the whole price for this,I got it on sale.So according to recent reviewer,this Ethereal Spackle has the same pros that the Shampange one.So...I think this does nothing to make makeup last longer.But I still like it a whole much,because it evens out the skin.And the tube that it comes in is very generous sized,there's a lot of product.A little doesn't go a long way,I mean you need a lot of this primer to do your whole face. Do I recommend as a primer? -No. But for making skin to even out,for that I do recommend.The glow is amazing by the way.

I like this over the regular primer. I do notice my makeup lasts a little longer with this, but overall, it's not worth it. There are much better primers out there. I like Mary Kay and Urban Decay much better.

I like this primer. I moved on to a mini size tube of this after using up a tube of the original Spackle, and I was not disappointed by any means!Due to the fact that this primer looked tinted, I assumed that it'll leave some sort of golden glow on my skin. You can also see some very fine, reflective shimmer infused into the primer. However, I got probably zero tint out of this primer. I couldn't even see the sparkles, and the golden color is extremely sheer, which is understandable, so I didn't really get any enhancement to my skin tone. Yet, I loved the dewy finish it left on my skin. This primer refracted the light nicely, creating a healthy glow, and I saw that it glossed over some uneven skin patches or acne. I'd actually recommend trying to wear this primer by itself; if you've ever wanted a simple trick to dewy skin, then this product works absolutely perfectly!Spackle in Champagne absolutely helps to prolong my foundation wear. I haven't had issues with it being uncooperative with my foundations, and I have noticed that it keeps my foundation from diffusing itself or gathering up in certain areas of my skin. It helped my face products adhere even through times of tough summer heat. For that, I commend it greatly.The packaging is pretty generic, just an easy squeeze tube, which works well. For the price- $27 for a full tube, I think- you really do get a lot of product. I used a mini tube that lasted me a solid 2 and a half months of everyday use. A full tube of Laura Geller primer lasts about a year, so this is definitely a great investment for a product that lasts so long! One final thing- the smell was ok, this primer doesn't try to smell all that nice, so it doesn't bother me. Overall, this is an excellent primer and I definitely recommend it!

If you get those awful tiny blister-like bumps from using silicone-based primers then avoid Spackle as I get the same reaction with this primer (I've tried original, Champagne and Ethereal - all the same reaction). With continued use I don't just get the tiny bumps - I made the mistake of using Spackle several days in a row as I'd run out of primer in the height of summer and I ended up with large lumps on my face. I am not exaggerating - I looked a complete mess! It's a shame as I quite like the luminous-but-not-shiny effect that the Ethereal Spackle gives my skin but I've figured I'm much better off with non-'cone primers. I am trying the Reviva primer as I've heard it's great for those who have to avoid silicone - I'll leave my review after a few days' use.

This doesn't act as a primer for me at all. It does nothing much to help with allowing for my foundation to go on smoother and wear longer than without. It does help with the appearance of pores either. I am not able to use it close to my eyes, as it causes my eyes to tear up each time. The champagne tint to it is very noticeable. Therefore, I wouldn't recommend wearing it without applying makeup over it, unless you plan on applying a very sheer wash of it. Overall, I was super excited to try this product. But, it really didn't end up impressing me all that much. I won't be trying it again.

It goes on smoothly and I like that's tinted, but I would not purchase it again. It's not the best primer I've ever used and it is pricey. If you don't mind spending the money, I would recommend it.

Not a fan. I used this for about a month before realizing that it was breaking me out. At first I thought it was hormonal acne, but after several weeks, I realized that it was some face product I was using. I phased this out first, luckily, and cleared up fairly quickly. And besides the fact that it broke me out, which is very dependent on a person's skin, this product just straight up doesn't work (which is really why I'm giving it a 1). It didn't help my makeup stay at all; I actually feel that it made my makeup move around more. It made my pores look HUGE which I didn't even realize until I stopped using it. Maybe its the glitter? Even though its not really detectable once makeup is on? I don't know, but I'm going to stick with bad is bad and leave it at that.

Awful, awful primer. When I put this on, I noticed that it spread really lovely and is a gold shimmery, sparkly color. The sparkle wasn't overwhelming and my normal amount of foundation covered it up easily enough. However, I've found that in less than 4 hours after applying my foundation is melted off in my t-zone. In the drier areas of my face this primer made my foundation gather oddly on my skin and made me look like I had wrinkly spots when in reality I have none. I got a great deal on this from Ulta, so I tried this primer out for four days because I really wanted it to work. Alas, every single day I got the same results. I've tried other primers before and have never had one make me look as bad as this one made me look. This is definitely a non-repurchase for me.
