Love this primer! It's perfect underneath a matte foundation like l'oreals infallible 24/hour pro matte. Great duo.

Not good for oily skin and runs out super fast. Bit of a water based consistency which I felt did nothing for my cheeks. However the redness was noticeably reduced (the white liquid may look a tad ghost like at first!) and my foundation did last longer with a better finish. Won't repurchase since looking for something aimed more at my skin type unfortunately.

I love this primer so much! I use it under my more matte foundations (L'oreal Infallible Pro Matte) and it just makes my skin look amazing, healthy and glowy. Honestly, it looks beautiful just worn by itself. My only gripe is how little product is in the tube for how much we're paying. It's like $10 but the product would only last me about 6 weeks. I've only used it maybe 15x and I'm already halfway done with my tube. I will definitely repurchase, but I just wish we could get a little more product.

I wanted an illuminating primer to wear under my EL Double Wear because that stuff is SOO MATTE. I've been using the Becca shimmering skin perfector in opal but I saw this and I wanted to give it a shot since its so much cheaper and if this can get the same job done, then why even bother with the high end honestly. I was concerned that this would make me look like an oil slick since I have fairly oily skin but I was pleasantly surprised at how well it held up throughout the day. I feel like it makes the ultra matte double wear look so much more natural on my face. Also the packaging is so cute and convenient I love it so much. I've def been using this stuff way more than my opal.

This works nicely with EL Double Wear. I mix a dot of it into what I will use for my whole face and it adds a little dimension to an otherwise very matte foundation. I stick with the Double Wear as it is one of the few things that lasts all day on me. I do however dislike the flat matte look and this product does not interfere with the wear time and even helps slightly with creasing. No glitter specks, just glow.

I don't use it as a primer. Under foundation it doesn't show up at all. I just mix it with a matte foundation when I want that dewy look and it looks amazing. It's very subtle but very beautiful. Not glittery just glowy and makes my skin look hydrated and healthy. It makes any cheap foundation look expensive (if that makes sense). I don't mix it with my mac face and body cause it's too much dewiness, it almost looks greasy. As a highlighter it's very subtle for my taste and doesn't show as much. It's quite pricey for drugstore but I really love this product and the packaging is so pretty!

I really wanted to love this because there was so much hype for it! Unfortunately, bottom line... I don't. It doesn't really give me any kind of glow and plus, it breaks me out every time I use it.

I initially loved this primer. As for priming, it does nothing for me but when I mix it with my matte foundations, Lo and behold I feel like a princess. It gives me a nice dewy look but not super dewy, just a nice glow. It's not just a bottle of glitter, it actually looks like a natural glow. Unfortunately, I think this broke me out. I'm not sure but this was the only thing that changed in my skin and beauty regime :( it's also expensive for a drugstore primer that doesn't prime.

***I posted this review before applying the primer without cleansing my face. Scroll down to see the results after cleansing my face.***

This primer definitely gives your skin a glow, but that's pretty much it. It doesn't minimize the appearance of pores, hydrate, or make your foundation last longer. The spaces on either side of my face between my nose and cheeks still had some texture to it. Also, my skin was still flaky on my t-zone, and within 4 hours or so, my foundation felt like it was slightly melting off my face and loosening up. My skin had no reaction to it, but I don't have sensitive skin so if you do, i couldn't make you 100% sure yours won't. I did enjoy the smell of it though, but I think primers and foundation smells good anywho. The primer is more liquidy than i anticipated; it instantly started running down my fingers before applying. So if you're looking for luminosity, i would recommend this product (a pump of this mixed in with your foundation gives a more intense glow). But if you don't mind being high-maintenance when doing your makeup, go in with a smoothing/hydrating primer along with this one. I don't think I will purchase this again, very limited amount of results for $10.


Okay, after washing my face, I applied this with the Loreal true match lumi foundation. I loved it. Simply put. I smoothed this on all over my face (actually easier to apply after face washing) and it made my foundation glide on a little bit easier. I didn't have a problem with my foundation looking like I just smeared it on (before you could see the brush stokes in my foundation). Also made my foundation last twice as long (very close to 8 hour wear). As before, using this primer without washing my face made it last around 4-5 hrs. So, lesson learned. Wash your face before applying makeup, kids. This will clear your face of oils and dead skin, giving your makeup a smooth surface to sit on.
