    I have used many primers this is so amazing. I have combination skin and with large pores, primer made make up look flawless. I will recommend this primer. I'm a makeup lover and I'm always trying new products and this is definitely one the best I've tried this year. Ive used smashbox, Urban Decay,Bareminerals and Stila this is by far the best.

          Comments about PÜR Correcting Primer Prep & Perfect:

          I went to Ulta looking for a primer that was mattifying. When I asked for help finding one I was lead to this primer. The employee that showed me this primer told me it would be perfect because it is pore filling. I do partially blame myself because I know better and I have combo/oily skin. Pore filling does not equal mattifying. Needless to say when I got in my car and did the visor check at the end of the day I was horrified. I have NEVER seen myself looking that oily. I will say that my makeup did not budge one bit which is great. However, I can get my makeup to not budge a bit without looking like an oil slick for under $10.

                    It's an extremely smooth primer and just glides on your face. I have combo, sensitive skin and use this under my bare minerals bare pro liquid foundations and it just makes the application of the foundation a breeze! Also, helps my makeup last all day, even through a long shift as a waitress. This primer make the foundation around my nose/on my nose look so smooth and flawless. I have never found a primer that sits well under any of my foundations, especially on my t-zone or nose, until I tried this! Highly recommend, and little goes a long ways!

                        Dear PUR Beauty, you will notice with the Prep & Perfect primer that it doesn't take much! Use a small amount each day to smooth and even out the skin texture. Depending on how generous you are with the product, our PUR Beauties tend to get on average 30-45 days usage, if not more!

                        Hi PUR Beauty,

                        The Prep & Perfect Primer is great to apply all over face. Our PUR PRO Artists like to apply Prep & Perfect using a brush in order to buff the primer into the skin. For the eye lids, we suggest using Cease Crease eyeshadow primer. The eyelids have a different texture of skin so a different primer is necessary. Cease Crease also has treatment included that will smooth the eye skin to prevent creasing. To correct the under eye darkness, there are a few options. Dark Spot Reducer Correcting Primer will assist with under eye dark circles using the PUR PRO technique of buffing into the skin. Or the HydraGel Lift concealer primer is a good choice too! Apply HydraGel Lift after eye serum and moisturizer but before face primer. HydraGel Lift hydrates and treats the under eye area and preps the skin for concealer (Disappearing Act)! Any of these suggestions will provide you with a brighter, smoother under eye area!

                      Has anyone tried both Correcting Primer (white) and Primer Hydrate & Balance (purple)? Can you compare, what did you like better? I have combination skin, with a few large pores I want to cover. I intend to use this just on my nose and cheeks right under my eyes.

                        A:

                        Hi PUR Beauty! You've picked two of our most popular primers for this time of year! You actually cant make a wrong choice! Hydrate & Balance (purple) & Prep and Perfect (white) function very much the same as a primer minimizing lines, wrinkles & pores and preps and smoothes the skin for foundation/makeup. They both contain PUR's age defying Ceretin Complex skincare! The "difference" is that Hydrate & Balance was created for oily skin tones and is both silicone and oil free. It has more of a gel-like texture and feels like serum when applied to the skin. if you plan to wear the primer on days you don't wear makeup, then I would suggest Hydrate and Balance! Hope that helps!

                        Hi PUR Beauty! Though Prep & Perfect Primer is PUR's most universal primer, we do recommend Hydrate & Balance primer which is designed for an oily skin type. Hydrate & Balance is silicone free and oil free so I feel you will achieve the result you desire more by using this primer. Depending on the base of your foundation, you may also want to check out Balancing Act (translucent oil control powder) for any touch ups through out the day!
