Feels lovely on the skin, but it's hard to justify the price. I'm not sure how much this changes the way my makeup looks or lasts. Will not be repurchasing in hopes of finding a cheaper alternative.

I don't use this often (to be honest, I don't use primers often at all), and when I do, I usually use it when going out in the evening. I have a lot of sun damage/melasma, and this really helps...

Let me start by saying that I received a travel size tube in a set, not the actual glass bottle version, so it’s not fair for me to rate the packaging. That being said, I did not care for this...

This is a really nice primer, just not really for what my skin needs are. It definitely brings a luminous look without being shiny. Does a nice job of evening skin tone and reducing the look of...

One of the best primers I have used. The purple hue gives a slight glow, especially on sleepless nights. It’s light and not sticky and helps make makeup go on smoothly.

I wasn't impressed with this primer. Its similar to other primers I have tried with micro glitter with slight color correcting. I will not purchase.

Unfortunately not a fan of this primer. I have dry sensitive skin. This primer enlarges the appearances of pores and due to the light reflecting characteristic it emphasises any textured/bumpy...

I have olive to neutral medium skin tone (MAC NW 20) slightly oily skin with some hyperpigmentation and acne scarring and large pores. In general, primers are not my thing, but I have found a few...

What a lovely primer! You can say primers are gimmick and I agree to an extent, but can’t deny that this little extra step makes my foundation last longer and apply easily. Some of my moisturizers ...

It depends on your undertone whether this is the one for you. If you have yellow undertones, you may love it as it neutralizes yellow tones, brightens and lightens skin. If you have red undertones...
