Rated 4.4 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review My new Fave primer
I am absolutely OBSESSED with this Bare with Me product. When I tell you it is the primer of the GODS. My skin is so smooth and my skin tint veil is the perfect pair to it. I have never had a primer work so well.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for fair skinned tones
Please note: I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review.
I was so excited to receive a product for free from Nyx as I have a high regard for Nyx as a brand. However, I was a bit taken back by this product as it was not like any primer I have ever used before. When I opened the cap I was greeted by a bronze color liquid which immediately made me confused. Then, my nose got a whiff of the product's perfume scent. I am a fair skinned woman and feel this product is not well suited for fair skinned individuals. The product gave a darker tint to my skin which I was not pleased with. Now, I will say that this product did give a nice glow to the skin. It dried to a powder finish which I appreciated. I think this product is best suited for individuals with dark skin tones and individuals that are not sensitive to strong scents. Therefore, I give it three stars as I believe it can be great for darker skin tones and can emit an inner glow look. For me personally, it was not a winner. However, I will continue to test this product and am pleased that I had an opportunity to try it out for free.

I tried it out just like I try a bunch of different products out and then eventually stick with one I like the most. This was amazing my skin was glowing all night even my bf said he noticed my makeup looked better.

Loves this product NXY has really put out a wonderful amazing sensitive skin friendly product
Smell is terrible!!!
Lauren from Chicago, Illinois
This primer has one of those extremely strong perfume-chemical-type smells. It is one of those extremely strong overbearing smells from a makeup product that gives you a headache. To be fair I know not all people are like this, but if you're like me and cant stand harsh overbearing smells coming from your makeup then do not waste your money on this. Also, in my opinion theres a packaging flaw because the hole is way too big and the first time I tried to use it WAY too much came out at once and accidentally wasted a bunch. Still give it three stars thought because other than the terrible smell and packaging flaw, the product itself makes the skin look beautiful and works wonderful as a makeup base.
Love this product so much!
Autumn Darling from Ky
I love this primer so much! I normally don't wear a lot of foundation in the summer because I sweat if off so quickly. The NYX Bare With Me Cannabis Radiant Perfecting Primer really helps my foundation stay on a lot longer. I've recommended it to several of my friends. When you put it on, it smells like a soft, clean, delicious perfume. It's NYX, so of course the price is amazing, and the ingredients are awesome as well. You really cannot go wrong with this primer. I received this product complimentary for review purposes.
glow from within
Liz from Los Angeles
with this primer, i use it on my inner cheeks and use a matte primer on the rest of my face. when using it on my inner cheeks, it gives a natural, ethereal glow from within. i'm very picky with primers (especially luminous) but this is the only luminous one i need.
JC Pacheco from Los Angeles, CA
Great product, and it makes putting on my makeup an easy process!
50+ and loving this product
NC RN from North Carolina
Radiant look. Coworkers noticed my fresh look first day. I use this mixed with just a dab of Bare with Me tinted veil.
Could not give a 5 because the packaging makes it difficult to manage amount of product dispensed and cause waste. a more pliable barrow tip tube would work better for this more liquid primer.
Better Without Makeup
A_S from Houston, TX
Background: Recently, I've started incorporating retinol into my skincare routine. As a result, I find myself looking for more dry skin-friendly products. I have a light-medium/medium combination complexion, and I would not describe my skin as sensitive. I do not have enlarged pores, but I do have a fair amount of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation on my chin and jawline. To date, my favorite makeup primer is the original Smashbox Photo Finish primer. If that makes me kind of basic, so be it.
Performance: A dime-sized drop of the primer seems to sufficiently cover the face. It gives skin a nice glow – which lasts all day – and is decidedly hydrating. However, I would caution anyone with oily skin: this may end up giving you unwanted shine with extended wear. Under makeup, I wouldn't say this is anything special, but it does look nice on bare skin or paired with the light, strategic use of concealer. So, I tend to use it kind of like a very sheer BB cream. Also, while this seems to compliment my complexion nicely, the tint may not play well with all skin shades.
Other: The few products I've tried infused with either CBD or hemp/cannabis oils seem to share an earthy smell. Personally, I don't think it smells bad, but I also don't think it smells great either. The scent of this primer does seem to linger, though it diminishes in intensity over time.
I would not buy this product again
Briilove from AZ
I tried this because it was a little cheaper than other primers but I really did not like it. It smells weird and doesn't do anything for your skin.
Probably my new go to primer!
Kai from DFW
I love this primer! And especially love the price! I'm glowing as soon as I put it on, so light and weightless too.
Love This Primer
AngelaG from Chicago, Il
I love using this primer. It feels soothing to the skin and makes my foundation look great!
Cody A. from Nashville, TN.
I needed a new primer and I wanted to try this one specifically for the illuminated effect.... this primer is tinted and it looks like I'll be wearing this by itself without makeup. I have an olive skin tone and with my makeup it makes me look way darker than I am. By itself it gives me a glowing look that I like, but I'll be needing a different primer for my makeup.
ALL THE BENEFITS
kennaw from UT
I love this for soo many reasons! It's hydrating, it gives a beautiful glow, it makes my skin look and feel so good. I can use it under foundation, on bare skin, or even just in small areas as a highlighter. Four stars because it doesn't exactly make my makeup last longer like a primer typically should, but it has so many other benefits that I will keep buying it over and over again.
ThatOnePersonThatEatsAllYourFood from Seattle
It hydrates my skin but also leaves a shiny finish on makeup all while keeping it in place.
Love this glow
Carebexar99 from San Antonio, TX
Love the glow this gives, always come back for more
Great illuminating skin tint
redwoods301 from Williamsburg, VA
This is such a pretty illuminating skin primer, but it's so pretty on it's own, that's normally how I wear it!
stinkyboo from Minneapolis, MN
i love the way this primer feels and looks on my skin. idk how much it helps the rest of my face makeup but i do enjoy!
Stylisssshhh from Whittier,CA
I'd like to compare this primer, to the Laura Mercier Radiance primer. The only difference is that the Laura Mercier is more lightweight and I feel like this primer you can feel it on the face...although it is no issue and does a great work. I do not recommend for oily skin. But seriously for the price compare to Laura .. I will be purchasing again.
Francy from Michigan
I like this product but I was really hoping for more dewy looking skin. I have combonation skin and I feel like its very dull lately. In terms of a primer its not bad. My makeup was still very blendable afterwards. Like I said my skin is combo so it did not hold up to the oily parts of my skin.
Best primer I have used!
Sonia from Simi Valley, California
Leaves my face feeling moisturized and looking glowy without feeling sticky. Goes on so smoothly. Keeps my bare minerals complexion rescue foundation intact the whole day.
A fairly glowing review
Alice from Florida
There are already several reviews that touch upon this product for fair-skinned individuals. I don't want to be redundant, but it bears repeating: this product is tinted and does darken the complexion for pale faces, so it's important to keep that in mind. I'm on the border; I think this will continue to work for my skin-tone for the warmer months where my shade darkens naturally. But come winter, I can't say for certain that this won't clash violently with my neck's shade. I do love the glowing, dewy sheen to this primer; I look like my skin is radiating shine from within, without the appearance of oily patches. This feature of the primer is why this receives a 4-star review and not anything less. That glow is truly remarkable and I love my skin's radiance. An expectation I have for primers (especially if it's part of the product's listed benefits) is the minimization of pores. I have exceptionally large pores and I had hoped that this product would blur my face. It doesn't. Now I do want to add the caveat that NO primer has blurred my pores other than the Benefit Porefessional; so in order to get that glow I so love from this product and to blur these massive craters on my face, I use the Porefessional on my cheeks and nose where my pores are most prevalent after applying the Bare With Me primer. This combination of products works extremely well for my petulant face. It's also worth noting this primer has a very strong and distinct smell to it. While the scent doesn't last long enough for me to have any headache issues, the smell is a bit revolting to me (I'm not a fan of tea and the smell is very reminiscent of such). I know there seems to be more negatives talked about here, but the glow and radiance really does warrant a higher rating than this review might infer.
Love love love!
Hales from Atascadero, CA
This stuff is amazing. You can use it as a primer or wear alone. Since quarantine/working from home I literally just wear this alone, more so because it makes me feel a little bit more put together than not wearing anything on my face at all. I dab a little extra under my eyes which somewhat illuminates my under eyes making my dark circles a tad less noticeable. It also feels really nice, a tad tingly and keeps your skin hydrated. Would definitely recommend and it's so affordable I hope they never discontinue this!
