    I really loved this! I like their primer but this was next to it. I really think it helps even out my skin under the powder foundation and makes a big difference, while still working the same as the primer. Great for all day, everyday :)

        I bought this in Light, and it matches my skin tone perfectly. I love that it has SPF 30, so it can function as my facial sunscreen for the day. The coverage is sheer but buildable (to a point), and I have used it as my foundation on days when I'm looking for lighter coverage as well as a primer to my foundation for days when I want more coverage. Either way, it works great.

            I tried this instead of the regular primer and WOW....What a difference!! I have some uneven coloring on my skin (nothing major, just a little redness here and there) and my skin looks flawless! I could probably just wear this and no foundation and still look great.

            I use this daily. Depending on the event I either use this with the mineral veil over for a natural, light look or if I need extra coverage I will use a tinted BareMinerals foundation powder on top. I love it because it's so versatile. I have one major complaint about this though. The bottle is a pump bottle. When it started to get low or thicker the pump would get stuck and then spew cream all over like an explosion. Eventually, nothing came out. I had to take the top off of it and use a Qtip to put down in there in order to get makeup out. I would like this product more if it came in a container without the pump. I will continue to use it because I love it but I would really like it if it was easier to retrieve from the bottle.

                  • Q:

                    I wear Matte foundation in fairly light. Will this primer change the color of my makeup or does it smooth out imperfections? I do not like the original primer as it doesn't seem to stay on very long. I tried a little on my forearm and the fair seems to blend in better than the light color.

                      Hello Gorgeous! As always for anything shade related we recommend stopping by your local Ulta to get professionally matched with any of our complexion products. If that isn't feasible, then we would recommend going with the Fair shade as you can blend it with your Matte foundation.

                      A:

                      Because Complexion Rescue features built-in priming benefits, there is no need to use an additional primer, though you can certainly use in conjunction with Prime Time BB if that is your preference. Setting with Mineral Veil is also optional, but if you have oily skin, you may prefer to set your makeup with Mineral Veil to ensure lasting wear and to keep skin shine-free.
