I wouldnt consider this a primer. I would consider it more of a highlighter. I still use it under foundation but I bought it as a primer.

It's definitely not a good primer... But- I use it to highlight my cheekbones and define my nose. I also use it under my concealer. This stuff is amazing!!! It gives me a great sculpted look. It's a pearly white color, so universal for everyone (as long as you use it under your makeup...) I have oily skin, and it doesn't make me any more or less shiny than I normally am.

This is a perfect highlighter for me. I create fresh illuminated skin with it every morning. I especially appreciate it when I decide to go for nude makeup look or French style makeup with just a little bit of mascara and red matte lips. In this case I need flawless skin but with an impression of bare face. This liquidy substance does not have any obvious sparkles therefore no disco ball manifests. I use it day and night whenever I fancy extra fresh dewy finish to my skin.

Yep it's not a primer! It's basically a pearly white highlighter. Since I'm porcelain fair right now, I did use it all over before applying concealer & powder. It does give a slight sheen/glow to the skin. I used a tiny bit more on my cheekbones. I'm indifferent with this product. Personally I think it's way overpriced for a drugstore primer/highlighter. I think the only thing it has going for it is that it is pearly white, and most other highlighters are pink based. Won't repurchase because I have other highlighters and primers that perform better.
EDIT: I had to stop putting this all over my face before foundation. It broke me out! It feels kind of greasy after you rub it in. So yeah, just use it strictly as a highlighter!

I bought this on a whim just to see what it was all about. While the highlighting aspect of this could work...I doubt I'd put this all over my face as a primer due to the whiteout washy ashy effect, however highlighting certain parts of the face may work. Do I think it's worth the price? Not really...I'll probably just highlight with powders rather than relying on this liquid before my foundation.

This primer is a *fabulous* drugstore buy. It isn't too thick nor too thin to make a difference, it makes your skin smooth and helps your makeup last longer and apply easier! It is very, very luminous (do not get this confused with oily!) because it has the most incredible finely milled shimmer you wouldn't even know could exist in it. You wouldn't even know when it was on your face that it had shimmer because the particles are so finely milled that you cannot really see them yet somehow they work together to create this beautiful glow. Also even though this primer is luminous it is *NOT* hydrating so don't get that confused. It is not going to dry out your skin at all but it is not going to add any kind of moisture either. It also doesn't break me out! My one downfall about this primer which is kind of huge is that only 20mL of this product is $20. That is a huge cost on top of foundation and specifically for a drugstore primer. I feel like prices at the drugstore are getting less and less pocket friendly which is what the drugstore is supposed to be about :/ I will probably not buy this again just because I have other primers that have a higher cost value but this truly is a great product.

Okay, I have pretty normal skin except for my nose. My nose is an oil slick! It's disgusting, but anyways when I bought this primer I first applied it everywhere. It didn't like my nose, let me tell you that. My nose was extremely oily. The second time, however, I applied it everywhere except my nose and I used my Revlon primer on my nose. It was fine and it gave okay results. It didn't really make me look a lot more radiant but it did make me look dewy which I like better than a completely matte face.
I can get the same effect with my highlighter, however. Nothing really special about this. It didn't make my makeup last any longer, but it did make me look dewy. That's it.

LOVE this product. I usually apply it directly to my cheekbones as well as mix it with my BB Cream. It just gives my skin an allover POP. I also add it to my eyelids and the corners of my eyes. Would definitely recommend this product.

This by far is my favorite highlighter. It doesn't contain any shimmers or sparkles, so if you're looking for something natural looking, this is your best bet. However, if you're a girl/boy with darker skin, do NOT use this product alone. It is very light and WILL look silver/ashy/obvious on the skin...which I found out the hard way. The solution? Mix a drop of this with a drop of your favorite moisturizer and apply to the areas you'd like to highlight and BOOM! you got a touch of luminosity that looks gorgeous on the skin.

This is a highlighter, not a primer. If you are expecting a primer with an illuminating finish - try MACs, it has a sensible amount of shimmer. I only use this as a liquid highlighter on my cheekbones on a night out on top of my makeup - and it is nice for that.
It is SUPER liquid - not the gel-like texture of your average primer. You would think the consistency would make the dispenser easy to operate, but if this stuff is tipped over in your makeup bag and you go to use the pump - it will likely splatter everywhere...you have been warned.
Lastly, on the colour, it is a bright white shimmer and therefore more cool toned than warm. My skin is a bit on the warm side, so I would have liked to have something a bit more on the gold side - but this is from the perspective of using it as a highlighter.
My friend is a rep for Loreal, so luckily I got this stuff for free. I wouldn't buy it.
