A waterproof, 12-hour primer helps makeup stay in place longer while brightening skin for a healthy, glowing complexion.

This hydrating base not only helps keep your makeup in place for up to 12 hours of perfect wear time, it's also a quick fix for tired or sallow skin - just one application gives the appearance of a healthy, youthful complexion. The lightweight texture is ideal for a base under foundation to wake-up your makeup but can also be worn alone as a treatment to counteract dullness. Whichever application you choose, skin is left smooth, feeling hydrated and looking flawless.

Powered by:
  • Vitamins A&E: Natural preservatives that also act as anti-inflammatory emollients to fight free radical damage and prevent premature signs of aging while brightening skin.

Dermatologist tested. Vegan friendly. Formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, and gluten.
Smooth a pearl-size amount onto skin (pre-foundation) or dab under eyes and on eyelids for the ultimate clean slate or wear alone as a treatment to counteract dullness.

              I'm sure it's doing what it's suppose to as a primer, so I give it 4/5 stars.
              Is it better than Smashbox, not in my opinion.
              Would Optimus Prime be please with this primer? Certainly.

                    I love this product! It's expensive for the amount that you are getting in the bottle (only real complaint) but it's worth the money. It doesn't clog my pores at all and keeps my makeup on really well. It gives me that air brushed look that I desire.

                    • Q:

                      Does this primer have specs of glitter/shimmer in it? I really enjoy the Loreal brightening primer because it gives a satin glow without sparkle. Is this comparable or different on its own?
                      Also, I am sensitive to smells. Does this contain a scent?
                      Thank you!
