I seriously LOVE this primer. I have the Iconic Photo one by smash box and it doesn't make my foundation look as smooth as this one does! This one is sooo much better and it's a lot cheaper!
The size of the bottle is deceptive. The amount of product is about 10% of what it appears to be. On top of that, it's watered down. Smashbox may seem more expensive, but all things considered, it is the better value.
This isn't an illuminating face primer... it's a liquid highlighter. I rubbed it all over my face and the entire thing was an off-putting gold shimmer color. Would probably make a great highlighter but as a primer it's way too illuminating.
I mix this with the poreless primer for a little glow but I feel like it doesn���t do a lot under foundation but gives a gooey look on its own
This primer works great I will be buying again the only reason I didn't rate 5 stars is because you always have to leave room for improvement.
I wasn't really too impressed with this primer. The consistency is really thick and it feels heavy on my face whenever I put it on. It doesn't really absorb well with my skin type. It's an okay primer, there wasn't anything awful or amazing about it.
For years I have abused my face with layers of makeup, and with the curse of oily skin, the results have either looked overdone, or if the initial result was satisfactory, the battle fought between my skin and my makeup throughout the day, always showed the victor to not be the makeup! What I adore about this product is it is the only element I turn to now to simply give me a little radiance to compliment and look healthy... even when dealing with poor sleep, and the dark circles and lackluster appearance that result. I truly feel transformed from simply using the oil prevention moisturizer, followed by highlighting my cheeks, eyes, and blending down my neck and around my chin with this product. I will say that I originally applied on my entire face, but the shimmer was a little much in the T-zone, almost appearing as oil would in those areas. However, a slight adjustment, and my face can breath, and I feel confident that with a tiny bit of powder, I look healthy, classy, and a lot more natural than the years of trying to cover what this primer blends effortlessly and beautifully!
